I want Red Dead and LA Noire for PC but that hasn't been mentioned at all? Should I keep my hopes up or what?

Wait, im sure this will be out on Xbox which is DX 9.....
It isn't really about DirectX, it is about cutting down Q&A and support costs.

A final fail in the end, but it lasted a good 4 years. Hackers are too arrogant.
The best hackers didn't touch the PS3 until OtherOS was removed. After that was gone, it took a year for it to be broken.

It goes to show that Sony's security engineering was security through obscurity which is never successful nor substantial. Maybe people from TSA designed the PS3's security?

Holy fuck, how the fucking shit can Sony mess up on public key crypto on the PS3? Either the dev who wrote that wanted the PS3 to run homebrew code, OR they don't know how to generate pseudo-random numbers.

My comment about Forgotten Realms is only about pre 4e Forgotten Realms.

Forgotten Realms is the best campaign setting for D&D.

I'm not sure a random investment firm who care solely about the biggest return is the best group to run a game company.
It is not the best group to run any entertainment business. See CVC and Formula 1 for a good example where people in suits who do not care about the sport take 50% of the earnings.

Bethesda always manage to astound me with their game design. They always fix some problem from their previous game and then they make whole new problems which they then fix in their next again game.

None of those offer what BC2 offers; infantry and vehicles in dynamic environments.
On one of the crappiest engines we've ever seen in a shooter. We're not missing out on much.

The ideas are there (destructible environments, vehicles, etc), but they're poorly experienced with floatiness and terrible hit detection. No thanks.
I don't think so. I do think they made the hit detection worse when they changed to the MOH hd but still there is no game that gives you the combination of infantry and vehicles in a dynamic environment. I find it much more fun than just running around shooting people in a static environment like in COD and MOH.
Again, I'm not questioning the type of gameplay BF offers. I just happen to think their engine is shit for the actual shooter aspect of the game. So they can provide the coolest combination of gameplay in the world, but if it's implemented within a crappy engine, it sorta nullifies the cool gameplay.

Aside from that, who cares? Play both or only one type based on your preference. If BC2 didn't have mediocre shooter elements, I'd happily go to that to get my open warfare fix. Both gameplay types offer unique experiences that can be enjoyed by all.
I think the engine is a massive improvement over the one used in BF2.

Trying to compete with Black Ops are we?

Too little, too late. I ditched Bad Company the day Medal of Honor came out, and ditched MoH the day Black Ops came out.

I doubt I will ever go back to either of them... no matter the patch or content size that is added.
Ah, you went to two lesser games? None of those offer what BC2 offers; infantry and vehicles in dynamic environments.

The patches are huge due to the way they have to build it, it's mostly texture crap according to the Dice devs. They even admitted it's stupid but it's way too late to change it at this point. They've been doing this since BF1942 though so there is no excuse for that nonsense to continue.
They changed their patching procedure, but they made new mistakes in the cooking procedure. It is a software engineering problem and they have to fix it for BF3 to retain any credibility in the SE department.

The fact that you have to drift around corners to get a decent time is not how most tarmac racing is done. Rally cars drift and slide on gravel, but on tarmac you want as little drift as possible.

Criterion took the driving mechanic from Burnout and just threw it in their NFS game. It is totally misplaced. I am very disappointed and I have uninstalled the game.

This game is not fun. I do not like that you have to drift around all corners. The drifting mechanic is crap IMHO.

I like it, it has some pretty unique features (housing, heritage quests) and everybody loves shinies! Also it is very mature and has loads of content, though I would stay to the new Golden Path content because some of the older stuff (the stuff from before any of the expansions) can be a bit tedious.
