Yeah, I agree I stopped getting excited about id games after Q2 shipped. Though I played some Arena and Live a couple years after retail when my wife bought me the games on the cheap for X-Mas. But as was so eloquently posted earlier... getting old sucks. After climbing poles and crawling houses all day the old fingers just aren't up to twitch game-play.

I still have the old shareware disc around here someplace that I bought at Software Etc. Plus all the old retail copies of both 1 & 2 and their add-ons. Maybe I'll load them up.

Rage has me semi excited again. I hope they can pull it off. Looks great but not sure they can pull off a story.

Looks both good and bad at times. But I must say this video makes me want the game again. One E3 video had the opposite effect. This time I like everything expect that whole Barbarian's Rage.... I mean Martial Arts Fury thing. Looked kinda cheesy and had that whole bullet time feel to it. Doubt I will ever play it that way so it won't really bother me. Bottom line... if there are as many choices as they say this will be a fun game. Seems they're building it so that almost everyone will find a way to enjoy the game-play. Now we only need to worry about AI and level design.

I finally read that wiki (thx headkase). I never knew it was the violence that caused Jackson to pull out. Ironic isn't it?

From what I remember the game was almost done and they had a falling out with Steve Jackson about something (probably money) and so they created the SPECIAL system. I think it was a good thing over-all.

Well it definitely looks good. But we all know id is not known for their story driven games. More like action driven with just enough story to call it a story.

Anyway, does anyone else find it bizarre that the studio which made Fallout 3 and the studio creating a similar game with a superior engine would end up under the same umbrella? Hmmm....

Wonder how long it is before the announcement that Fallout 4 will be made with Tech 5?

News Comments > Alpha Protocol Preorders: PC Screwed Again

"Really they should blame the TV makers! Huge plasma whilst bumming on the sofa or much smaller monitor whilst sat at a desk."

Try this on for size: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824254026 http://www.costco.com/Browse/Product.aspx?Prodid=11236988

I've had that monitor for over a year and a half... I can play any PC game in comfort (you may want to get a better office chair)... not to mention PS3 and 360 games.

I still agree with that part about the sofa since it's a blast to play games on 50" plasma from ten feet away with friends and family lounging on the couch.

As far as Sony and AP, I'm glad to see that not just EA and DAO are content to screw the PC market.

I'm starting to think along the lines of what Jerykk said in his last post. Though I'm one of those who has plans to wait a month or two before purchasing.

Funny, I missed the fact that the blades cutting through throats (and other body parts) weren't coming out the other side with spurts of blood. Please, tell me it was mistakenly turned off or that was the German version they were playing.

Sweet! I got the e-mail the other day but today's e-mail has all pertinent info. Things to remember...

"Your 14 day re-evaluation period starts when you first log into the game."

"This free re-evaluation offer is only valid until 2009-07-22."

Finally some more game-play footage. I don't want to let go of my PC snubbing anger but... I must say I am slightly impressed. The animations looked quite good. Love the killing moves shown. I assumed these are PC footage... if not and the game looks that good on the PS3 and/or the 360 color me even more impressed.

After seeing the E3 video this year I am far less excited than before. I'm hoping the game-play footage was from one of the consoles since I was planning on buying PC. I know it's premature to judge a game on just a few minutes of actual game-play but that is exactly why they created demos. Anyway I hope I am wrong because I really want this game to be good... better than good, great.

News Comments > Runes of Magic Expanding in August

We have to remember that one man's grind-fest is another man's entertainment. And of course this rule extends across all forms of entertainment and/or media.

For example I've read threads on forums with dozens of people touting a novel or an author as one of the best. Then I go out and pick up a copy only to find the author's writing style is boring and the story cliched beyond all reason.

In the end there is rarely a way to explain or fully understand the tastes of somebody different from yourself. I still can't believe there are people out there that do not like the taste of beer of one kind or another... just can't get my mind around that.

Oh, it took me forever to get a non-corrupt copy of RoM downloaded only to find it won't boot on my Vista/Win7 dual boot system.

Will W, you must not have got the e-mail they have had welcome back trails. I've been waiting for a reason to go back but at this point don't really want to invest the time. So I'll wait a bit longer.

Fion, how is the new PvP? I loved the old style just hated there was no negative to the grievers. Did they implement the penalties like they originally had proposed? Do the high level players ganking lower levels become flagged and/or have a bounty put on their heads like they were wanting to do?

Doesn't Paul own Micheal's music catalog? Or did he sell it back to him? I could have sworn he bought it and Micheal wanted the rights back but Paul wouldn't sell it back for any less than he payed for it.

Thanks, for the info LMN8R. Sadly, that sounds like my job. LoL, I work for the Evil Empire. At times I've wondered if this large corporation was the only place with retarded management spreading misinformation and then blaming the employees when things go badly.

Either way the game is still FREE, right? If so, everyone should just take a chill pill.

I was pretty stoke about Alpha Protocol until I saw that extremely console-ish action segment from E3. So unless that was game-play limited to the console only I plan on taking the wait and see (read buyers reviews) before my purchase of the PC version.

What sucks is I had hoped Alpha Protocol would hold me off from buying Dragon Age Origins (PC) until several months after release. Oh, well... it's not like there will be a shortage of good console games to play this Fall/Winter.

20. Re: E3 2009 PC Wrap-up Jun 7, 2009, 23:18 Paranoid Jack
 
I agree with you, Jerykk. Both The Saboteur and Alpha Protocol looked like console games in the E3 demos and hands-on shown. A shame since I was really looking forward to Alpha Protocol.

I was interested in The Saboteur until his uniform instantly vanished and he was the center of attention hidden behind those crates. I can understand if the reason the uniform vanished was a way to let the player know his cover is blown but the way the video played out it left me with the same impression it left you with.

Still a lot of cool games. Thx for the list Blue. Nice way to end the coverage. This year I caught most of it on G4 but got tired of listening to the chatter and mostly scanned thru the recordings on our DVR.

Oh, my wife and I went to see Hang Over... what a funny movie. Highly recommended. One of the funniest I've seen in some time. Crazy shit. Don't take your children though.

edit: I haven't seen any best of lists yet but if that Old Republic trailer doesn't win something it's all rigged. That was one bad-ass trailer. Made me excited to see how well the project will come together.
