This is a fine game, if you like the genre. I already played through it on console ages ago though, so I doubt I'll get the PC version. The Steam asking-price also seems a bit stiff to me, at 49.99 for a game that's been console bargain-bin material for at least 6 months. Even though you probably get the usual sharper textures and none of the framerate-issues that were an annoyance in the console version. The controls also felt needlessly clunky at times, but nothing remotely game-breaking.

Oh, and without spoiling too much, the ending is rather bad-ass.
Geez, you Euro guys always get the short end of the stick. $39.99 here.

The chances of a movie-related game being not-shitty increase exponentially when it is released long long long after the movie is.

I don't know what 3D Realms has to do with it. They basically remade DNF from scratch around 5 times. Indie or not, that's bankruptcy.

Right, because that's exactly what I said, not "You're a retard for labeling all research a waste of your money, seeing as data that obviously builds towards a greater understanding is 1. not a waste, and 2. not even done with your money."

Fuck it. I hope you have the life you deserve- filled with idiots who never try to understand things because they can't see how it's immediately productive.

:-megarolleyes-: There's plenty of stuff that's "obviously true" until a study is done showing it to be utter BS. Science works, bitches. Test results are data. Anecdotes are not.

Yeah, except a good percentage of studies are non-scientific anecdotal drivel, bitch. Plus, I'm really tired of my tax dollars paying for some dumbass researcher to "study" whatever bullshit he decides interests him at the time.

In other news: Practicing something makes you better at it? No fuckin' way! We better spend $10 million to check that out.
Yes, that's really well thought out. "Cure cancer or GTFO of the grant line! What do you mean you didn't get any money for this? Well let me just make up an absurdly high number to justify my retarded outrage!"

You [iuild[/i] on data. E.g. Other tests found doing Brain Age only made you better at Brain Age, not, as some would believe, make you generally smarter. This adds to the data available for "brain training" and you possibly understand a bit more. That's how science and the world in general works- gradually and in small steps.

Console games don't have EULAs. This is more about the resale of business software.

What happened to gas powered games, wasn't this their franchise?
Yes, but then they made Space Siege and thus couldn't be allowed to live.

Actually, it'll probably way more zoomed out in normal play, so the particle effects for a sword special attack make sense. But still, the particle effects are way too "thick" for lack of a better word.

I'd have much preferred a few more of the "here's some resources, there's an enemy base, go kill it," missions.

Well the whole point of Blizz taking so long with the single player campaigns is that the entire world has gotten bored of bland SP missions that were basically skirmishes with a 1 paragraph premise. They designed all the missions to have unique mechanics, and that means not sitting on your ass churning out units for 2 hours like pretty much 95% of RTS single player missions in 95% of RTSes for the last 15 years.

Really Blizzard? Really? Isn't this a tad jumping-the-shark'ish?
You'll have to invent a time machine to go back and ask them the first time they gave away WoW pets with Blizzcon tickets, a couple of years ago. The tickets to the actual event sell out super fast, so the streaming's for everyone else.

Hate to say it, but if you're stupid enough to work for a "promise", then you're stupid enough to get ripped off.
So I guess you get prepaid for every month you work, amiright, so it could never happen to you, if your employer goes out of business? Oh shit, then they're paying you for a 'promise' of showing up to work! How old are you again?
