News Comments > The Witcher 2 Specs

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.

They have been hyping for 6 months, now they need another 5? There must have been too many bugs, to release or their having issues with their craptastic drm. Seems like almost every single major drm controversy Ubi has been front and center.

I've been avoiding all videos and reviews also to prevent spoilers, in case the game actually turns out good. Otherwise I'll wait 6 months.

What the hell does Ubisoft have to do with anything? It's developed by Eidos and published by SquareEnix.

I wonder when Bioware is just gonna stop pretending and go straight God of War/Gears of War. It's pretty obvious that's the way they're going.

They say Steam Guard, which will be available to third-party developers, will also support Intel's upcoming Identity Protection Technology, a hardware encryption scheme for 2nd Generation Intel Core CPUS that replaces the need for an external key generator.

This part, however, does read like it would/could tie your game to one PC and one PC only.

The publisher's wet dream.

Creston
The "external key generator" is a key fob, ala banks and WoW.


Darks wrote on Mar 3, 2011, 15:51:
This has to be about the worst idea ever, I would rather they give me a token to lock down my account with like WOW uses rather then tie my account to a CPU. Absolutely stupid, so what happens when that CPU goes bad or you change it out and then try to access your account. And are now locked out because the hardware has changed? I guess pled and beg Valve to fix it, which who knows how long that will take. No thank you! I donít need this type of BS intrusion locked down on my account.
This is easily the most retarded response to this news release. What happens if you lose your bank or WoW key fob? Yeah, you have to go through some annoying shit. Same as if you got your account hacked, except the whole point is that having the key fob makes the whole situation less likely. Now they're doing key fob type security without the cost of having to mail a fob to every one of their customers.
BTW Gabe, if you donít like fixing people accounts then get out of the business, this is part of the business model whether you like it or not.
BTW, if you like not having a security feature, then don't complain when you get hacked and it takes a week to get everything back to normal.

I actually fail to see what this does, period, or what benefit any of the 3 groups involved (valve, devs, users) get.
Jesus, does no one here do online banking? Banks already do this kind of hardware lock, in addition to key fobs. The benefit is less accounts stolen, which means less headaches for both customers and customer support.

Sounds to me like it could also be implemented into some form of extra DRM in the name of "Identity Protection". Imagine the next Activision Call of Duty that implements this system, no need for CD-Keys as the game is locked to your PC hardware.

You know what that's called? Securom. It's been doing that for more than 4 years, FFS. It locks to hardware, and still has CD-keys.

As long as this is optional, then thats cool, Valve needs to realize some people travel and often use more than 1 pc with their steam account, especially for smaller indie games.

Again, what? This is about changing account settings, not locking games to a specific PC.

Your game purchase has been locked to the PC you're using, for security purposes of course.

Developers would never abuse such a system.

What the what?

Attempts to modify or change account settings by any other PC won't be possible without the user's approval.

Don't fuck this up! I would have 0 confidence, but I have to admit Deus Ex 3 (Deus Ex 0?) is looking really really good, GitS knockoff or not.
