DICE has to have some of the best sound people in the business. I can't think of another game whose quality of sound FX even approaches this.

It kind of looks like what I imagine Heavy Gear 3 would look like in 2010 had the series not died in '99. That alone gets me all a-twitter.

looks like I'm not the only one who thought this. Scale-wise they look slightly larger than Gears but I'm willing to suspend disbelief..... Biggrin

Like the pirates won't figure it out and have a ripped version in less than a week anyway. What a waste of resources.

They know that. This is a move to end resale or trading of games to friends, etc. If they announce they were doing that there would be a backlash.

same thing happened with FEAR 2. Even if you purchase it in retail you can't transfer ownership.

At some point this is going to be challenged in court since it flies in the face of right of first sale.

What a fucking mess the original was. The artists involved with the project were first rate but everything else was a dismal failure.

There's something about Eastern Europe that it produces some of the greatest digital artists alive but they can't design a game to save their lives. Yes, there's a few exceptions but overall its the truth.

News Comments > Last Word on BioShock 2 DRM, For Now
3. Re: Last Word on BioShock 2 DRM, For Now Jan 22, 2010, 22:50 Hump
 
all this is simply a circle jerk in order to placate the suits who don't understand how useless DRM is but it makes them feel they are protecting value for the shareholders. Of course it does nothing of a sort but as long as they think it does we'll keep seeing this issue debated.

whatever DRM is implemented it will be deactivated in short order. I don't know why people get up in arms over it. Its pretty much a non-issue nowadays.

Can't beat a well made trailer to get one psyched for a game. This one is about on par in terms of effectiveness as the Borderlands now classic trailer (DJ Champion soundtrack)

I played Bordelands from start to finish twice and enjoyed it. For some reason I have absolutely no desire to play the DLC.

If the game requires an account on their servers be created how can the game be pirated exactly?

cracked servers are all the rage nowadays.

to be honest I wasn't aware that this was so tied to being online so maybe I'm wrong on that point.

I wish HiRez the best but i really hope they do a limited "free weekend" a-la Crysis Wars so the rest of us can get an idea of how the game is. The days of being able to afford a $50 coaster are at an end. I just don't have that kind of money to waste anymore.

My fave

92. Kirk never dressed in green tights and pretended to be Robin Hood, and if he had, someone would have paid for it.

is anyone here playing this? it looks pretty damn fun

All the previews I've read are saying that its pretty good. The downside is that the devs decided to keep the beta closed. The problem with that is a demo wont be able to give anyone a good idea of how the game will play since it has leveling and classes which isn't something that they would be able to fit into something demo sized.

The publisher is just begging for this game to be pirated since its a relative unknown both in terms of recognition and gameplay. People arent going to shell out $50 on the off chance its garbage. A public beta would have went a long way to towards heading that shit off.

Not exactly the kind of genere I play but thats pretty goddamned impressive.

To the UBI haters, despite their issues they DO have the balls to take risks with game play that is outside most publishers comfort zone. Gotta give them credit for that.
