Fun for a few hours, until you complete it and have no reason to pick it up ever again.

It has zero replay value: (Not using a gun in the entire game, Hard mode, Time Trials, speedruns...)

no hidden treasure, (The hidden bags)

no alternate modes, nothing. (Time trials/speedruns)

It's a cool concept though, and a good one to rent.

Sorry I'm a page late, but I'll blame timezones for that.

It isn't work £40/$60 though, but if you can get it for cheaper, it's a good buy.

I payed $25.

Spam attack. I had a huge list of the methods they're using, but I was wrong. Well, not entirely wrong, they are following a method; five in GD&Q, 2 in pictorium, 1 in plugins, 1 in troubleshooting, 1 in localisation, 2 in plugin developer's central, 2 in alfredo, then, either stop and re-register or continue with a new pattern. SO far we've had (in order):

Lifeempitte

JOneronego

Also, they choose usernames which have no google results,

I guess on some forums it must actually work. :|

I know - see my post in rants.

EDIT: Quote from rants.

I reported every one of them 10 minutes after they appeared. On a different forum, their technique might have been reasonably clever; post spam with reasonable thread names in an advertising forum, then people look, see the links to the music sites, and click them.

I noticed.

It seems to have stopped, but then, that's what I thought when Lifeempitte stopped at 14 posts. There was a 10 minute break, the JOnerongo came along.

It's pretty certain that there's going to be another attack soon. That, or they just decided to stop out of the good of their heart.

I think not.

Nah, just annoying spam that won't go away. You would know if it was a DoS attack.

Or they have a limited number of servers and a huge number of forums to spam.

----------------

I think there's an option in phpBB3 to delete all a member's posts in a few clicks. :D Semi-WEOTMPA from an admin?

As far as I know, only the Admin deletes stuff. Mods can only lock. And by "won't go away," I mean they just won't quit.

This spam attack does raise some interesting questions, like just what are the strategic goals of the Alabama Realestate Commission?
