News Comments > AvP and Dedicated Servers
3. Re: AvP and Dedicated Servers Oct 27, 2009, 13:58 Zyrxil
 
Like he said its very expensive to run these servers and in these economic times Im not expecting it..
Are you dense? The companies don't run anything. Gamers and Communities are the ones that pay to host the servers. They just have to make the dedicated server files available.

the publishers/developer to more control content, cheating etc....
Content is the only point, and laziness if there's no content to be controlled. Cheating is not something that is affected by having/not having dedicated servers. If anything, cheating is worse when you don't have admins from the clan/community, and have to rely on some paid guys reviewing log files every 2 weeks.

News Comments > Zenimax Eyeing Valve?
6. Re: Zenimax Eyeing Valve? Oct 26, 2009, 11:40 Zyrxil
 
Where would they get the cash? Zenimax isn't some mega huge publisher, it's just a shell company Bethesda founded when they started to try to get into other things than just games. Valve is every bit as successful if not more successful than Bethesda has been. And again, there's no reason why Valve would sell.

News Comments > 100 Million Need for Speed Sales
8. Re: 100 Million Need for Speed Sales Oct 21, 2009, 14:42 Zyrxil
 
I've only ever played one of these games, and that was for a race or two before I got bored. The 100 million mark deserves at least mild applause, but if there are no guns or hapless civilians, one NFS is the same as another NFS to me.

So you played a racing game and were disappointed it wasn't GTA or Carmageddon? That's the most pointless complaint you can make.

Nothing I've seen in trailers, gameplay or otherwise, has convinced me this game is anything but a stealth-light generic sandbox game that tries to make up for its shortcomings with artistic style. 10 bucks says it bombs.

News Comments > Dragon Age: Origins Day One DLC Plans
28. Re: Dragon Age: Origins Day One DLC Plans Oct 7, 2009, 21:18 Zyrxil
 
There is a long held belief that main game content is being removed and sold separately. This is not the case. The content is being developed in parallel by a dedicated team.

When the content is ready for Day 1 download, what's is there any difference between the main game content and content designed/coded at exact the same time? Do you arbitrarily move some guys to a different room and declare it a separate Parallel, as opposed to all the other teams working on other areas also in parallel? What happens when you decide maybe another town was also made in parallel?

The reviews are all over the place. Half say it's polished and impressive, others say the campaign is short, terrible, too small and CoD-like, and too checkpoint based with stupid stuff like respawning team members.

Seriously, how did Bohemian Rhapsody not make the list? Did the rights owners decide since it's the most popular song to charge 100x the licensing fee or something?

News Comments > The Incredible Machine Series Bought, Reissued
9. Re: Game Reviews Oct 1, 2009, 15:59 Zyrxil
 
Instead of buying Incredible Machines or whatever, buy Crazy Machines 2 instead.

The medal and replay system of Crazy Machines 2 pissed me off to no end. While I'm being pissy, I'll mention the menus are also horribly designed and the graphics engine rather unoptimized.

Fox News style shenanigans there. The actual article is "Diablo 3 Heading to Consoles?" where they discuss how they haven't completely ruled a console release out, but are currently just focused on actually finishing the game.

News Comments > Batman: Arkham Asylum Patch
5. Re: Batman: Arkham Asylum Patch Sep 22, 2009, 12:55 Zyrxil
 
Um I thought it already had PhysX support in the game (at least the options are in the settings) and I noticed steam/fog being moved by the character...

You did if you had v1.1 in the title screen. This patch was out a while ago as an ingame update, this is just the manual version release.

News Comments > Arkham Asylum Sells Well
18. Re: Arkham Asylum Sells Well Sep 21, 2009, 17:50 Zyrxil
 
Story was fine to me. It pushes a bit, as it's throwing so many characters out there, but it worked.

It made no sense.
-Joker sets a "trap" which Batman could have escaped at any time, so what was the point? His plan was also really boring. "Create Mutant army and conquer everything" is a cheesy Mad Scientist plot, not a Joker scheme.

-What was Dr. Young thinking with the Titan formula? How would a super mutating steroid possibly help cure psychiatric patients? And didn't the kidnapping of Bane and draining his blood raise some alarm bells somewhere, even if no one knew Joker was behind it? And she actually took payments into her private bank account and thought it was on the up and up?

-Batman was totally out of character not evacuating 100% of the Island's doctors and guards as soon as the dock area was available. Instead he just lets a ton of people stupidly die. What's more, where was the army to take back the island once they figured out the threat of bombs in Gotham was fake?

-The dialogue sucked too. Way too much machismo with stuff like "They won't see me." or "That's what she thinks." (in response to Ivy setting a trap). That's not Batman, he's supposed to be smart and clever, plans within plans, not just walking into traps just because he's badass.

The story is surprisingly bad though. I mean, Paul Dini's no Warren Ellis, but it barely made any sense.

Uh, no it's not. Plenty of people played the demo fine with M/KB. I'm playing the full game fine with M/KB. 30 hit chains aren't hard.

It is Gothic, it's the Gothic devs. The question is whether it'll be Gothic II or Gothic III redux.

Hopefully this game won't be a buggy mess.

Oh, there's 0 chance of that. The choices are only "Unplayably buggy" or "Playably buggy". My problem with it is the videos of combat resemble Gothic III combat far too much for my comfort.

Why would they be having publishing problems?? I mean wasnt Witcher a big hit on the PC??
It was also published by Atari. Anyone with brains would want to try for a different publisher.

Why would you play the same game on a different platform for 6 hours of single player?
