It was apparently a rug on the wall that had a design like a prayer rug.

On the topic, funny that Capcom, of all publishers, is actually one that listens to PC gamers and actually puts into practice some of its promises.

Isn't it great how PC gamers rewarded Capcom for this by making SF4 one of the highest pirated games of 2009?

You realize # pirated copies is directly related to # of copies sold and popularity overall?

It's a helluva creative excuse for why everyone is a Batman clone, though.

The Royal Wedding pic is a fake. The colors in the Disney scenes have been altered:
First
Second

It's like 2 days old and the originals were dug out when it was 1 day 23 hours 50 minutes old.

The "Other" Crusades based co-op slasher/beat-em-up. I do think the animations in this look better than First Templar, and I have to say I do think more highly of Atlus than Kalypso, even if they are only the publishers.

Wasn't expecting this. Sandwiched between Brink and Witcher 2.

Wait, what the fuck? They actually called it an E6760? Come on, like there's not enough confusion with PC component naming that they have to intentionally name something so similar to Intel processor models from 3 years ago.

There's no reason that there wouldn't be an sdk released at some point

Cept money....a lot of fucking money. It would be very much like Valve at this point to focus on creating their own content rather than offering tools for the community to make their own content. Valve has become less focused on letting the community take advantage of these games and more focused on creating their own content to offer users. In some cases this is offered free as those mutations they did with L4D2 were, but ultimately they appear to be trying to corral players into their content rather than encourage the community to contribute and participate as they have in the past. Like with TF2, all those hats and such, I doubt you earn those on custom servers? So people are more likely to play official TF2 servers? It's not unlike how BF2 offered those extra weapons playing on ranked servers and the unranked servers became a ghost town?

Maybe I'm just paranoid, but I don't believe Valve will do anything other than try to support their own internal content creation.
You're worse than retarded, you're actively making up history to support your assertions. Valve didn't promote player content with L4D2? How about the custom campaign support from inside the game? The blog posts on the official blog for custom campaigns they liked? The official-ized addon pack compromised of custom campaigns?

TF2 hats? There are no "official" or unofficial servers in TF2. Never has been. You could play on whatever server with whatever custom maps or custom rules you want. The most there is notations in the server browser to indicate if your server isn't vanilla.

It's a generic catchall term for any addon, no matter expansion sized or Horse Armor sized. Yes, consoles have also contributed a tiny bit to killing English. I imagine it'll probably be more Co-op levels.

1. Re: Prototype 2 Trailer Apr 21, 2011, 11:02 Zyrxil
 
Why Alex Mercer is the enemy? Isn't being a mass murderer enough? For all that Prototype got wrong- it really got the feeling of being divorced from humanity right. Sure people would start out trying to avoid civilian deaths, but as you grew more powerful and the missions larger in scope, it just became absolutely impossible. You cared as little about the virtual life as the character did.

That and loading screens, and the gesture store. The loading flash screens are unimmersive. They seem more console oriented since on PCs the loading is fast enough that you don't want a disruptive transitional screen that interrupts the audio.

Of course the first thing I did after I read this was download it off a torrent. Upload to Sharebee and a dozen digital lockers, go!

I've never seen another article that says the console ports are even past the wishful thinking stages. In any case, there is no 360 version being released even on the horizon, so the pertinent part of that article is obviously wrong. It's from April 2010 after all.

Which means they have absolutely no adapted gui nor gameplay for the PC version nor optimized controls to m/kb.

Big difference between "supports" and "requires". Consolitis is always a worry, but in this case, I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt until they prove otherwise.
Adapted to PC? You realize this game is a PC exclusive for the foreseeable future? Sure they have console plans, but there's not adaptation needed when yours is the lead platform and the console ports haven't even started.

Beenox has always been shit. They've done all the Spider-Man PC ports, and not one could even be described as decent. Throwing the franchise to them means Activision doesn't think there's much profit in it, at least until the next Spider-Man movie hits.

Game would have been a lot more entertaining if the majority of it didn't consist of this:

*drive 10 minutes across the city listening to dialogue and background music*

*kill/fight/pick up something for one minute*

*drive 10 minutes back to your apartment*

Chopping up the base game into DLC was an exceptionally poor decision considering the games long development span too.

Those complaints, and pretty much every other complaint about Mafia 2, could be leveled on the first game which was considered a masterpiece at the time.

I loved Mafia 2. It's not a game for everyone though, certainly... more about immersion than gameplay. The original was exactly the same though.
The first game had better writing. That's crucial. The characters were more likeable, and the execution was just far better overall. Mafia 2 also gives the impression of large chunks being cut out because they just couldn't finish it.

I believe that it's the type of game that will have a very long life, much like World of Warcraft has.

Of course, before WoW was released they expected a 5 year lifetime and a million subscribers at the very most, so it's not like they're any good at predictions.
