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?

The difference is, Aion already has a stable subscriber base of around 2 million in Asia. Maybe nothing will kill WoW, but people are expecting it to be a solid 2nd place in the West.

Maybe he just means the game will attract more female players?

Ha!

They started the marketing on this wayyyyyyy too early. At most you have 1 year between when you start an MMO's marketing campaign and when you have the open beta/demo. I'm still looking forward to it, but all the buzz is dead.

Well it is a different studio. They simply got bought out by Valve midway through L4D development. Different culture, mindset and all that.

News Comments > Blizzard: New MMOG "Significantly Different" from WoW
12. Re: Blizzard: New MMOG Sep 2, 2009, 01:25 Zyrxil
 
What do they expect? People to pay for 2 at once? GTFO Blizzard. You made a great MMO no doubt. But there's no way people will pay for 2 at the same time. That's just lunacy.

Huh? What about the people that don't currently play WoW? That's obviously the market they are shooting for with a game that doesn't play like WoW.

If you are for stability why are you installing modded driver versions?

Because they've been better to me.

Bullet penetration
Yes
Gun jams
No
Bullet ballistics
Well, the ballistics of bullet penetration. Sort of.

It's fine for what it is, a mix of arcade and semi-realistic atmosphere. The first game's real problems were an incredibly shitty spawn system, a lack of game modes, a shitty server browser, and relatively poor custom map handling.
