    They got their work cut out for them because the original release was just awful. Biggest waste of $50. The 64bit version was so poor that my 32bit laptop with integrated graphics got better performance than my desktop /w a HD3870.

    Not that I'm one of them but I wonder if the people that bought Lifetime subs will get them re-instated

    Cool, because I actually enjoyed this game. Yes it was a bit on the buggy side, but it was fun.

    Be nice to see what they do with it, Had potential in there , just underneath the thick layer of bugs.

    Worth another shot.

    I enjoyed the game quite a bit although I never took it online. The future diablo theme was great and I liked the visuals, not to mention the array of different weapons. A quirky sense of humour nicely covered up a rather boring plot. Not exactly a cerebral game though and I can't imagine playing it for an extended period of time. I always played it when I was bored and didn't want to have to think too much about the game.

    Should be interesting to see how its resurrected form shapes up.

    Most likely not, Eulas are like Mobile Phone / Broadband Contracts, you click / sign away any and all rights and in return they get to do whatever the hell they want.

    However, it should not matter at all due to the following bit:

    It's amazing how many people didn't realise that it had a single player component, and you could easily play the game offline.

    I was so bummed that the game didn't pan through.
    It was a very interesting niche and combined my two favourite game types, FPS and diablo style RPG's.

    I'll keep my eyes out for the "resurrection" but I won't get my hopes up. IMO there was some fundamental flaws and bugs that need to be addressed gameplay wise to make it viable.

    for starters that horrible tile system and overall environment that made every area boring, lacking soul and altogether interesting. Plus the myriad of bug and AI issues.

    on the positive side. It had some very interesting gameplay and I loved just jamming out with a gun wasting baddies. I think they should revise the talent system somewhat and allow respecs, I don't get the negative stance towards respeccs especially on games that have large leveling times.

    Great game although I never did play online. The areas do get a bit redundant, but the ability to upgrade your equipment and such is really cool. It does have the occassional bug where it can freeze up, but doesn't happen to regularly and seems to not lose much in the way of progress. Been running it lately on Windows 7 and haven't experienced any new bugs.
