Dynamic infestation is the WHOLE reason they went with their new inhouse game engine rather than source. It is also the reason their inhouse gameengine sucks for performance. Unless they can optimise so that is isnt CPU heavy then this game is dead in the water in reality. The performance is still shocking for a beta. As previously said, beta should be minor feature additions and bug testing.

Indeed. I only buy sales now. Spent a lot in the steam sales and that will keep me going for another 6 months.

I would have said heavier on the sarcasm than irony. I would imagine some EA/Ubi exec would be using those figures in one of their DRM meetings :-)

never mind the lag, once a hihg powered system gets more than 25fps consistently then we will be cooking. so far it pretty much all CPU bound - quite bad for an almost production engine. LUA not withstanding, I fear for the final performance of this game.

well, lets hope it actually USES multiple cores properly this time, unlike the clusterfuck that was ETW when that released.

Silent Hunter 5 was on sale on steam for liek few bucks but ubi drm stopped me from even shelling out few bucks, there was another game I forgot the name that used same drm, no sale here again.

exactly. I passed on this, AC2 and settlers 7 all because of the DRM. I picked up BC2 and vietnam instead (and operation flashpoint AND arma2 - phew! thats my next few months sorted)

What if someone lacking Internet access buys AC2 or SC:C in the store? Is there something on the box that tells them they need to have Internet access to play?

yes - the box does say needs a constant internet connection.

Funny thing is, the DRM actually did prevent Zero Day Piracy; what was it, four months before AC2 was cracked? If they'd been sensible and planned to get rid of the DRM shortly after launch or even once it was cracked, instead of condescendingly talking about how it was a great solution and how they couldn't imagine any future releases not using it, the response from what would be their playerbase would probably be much more amicable (except here, of course.)

Maybe for AC2 but not for other games with the same DRM. Mirroring other peoples comments, I also will not purchase UBI DRM games either - especially when this draconian shite is bundled with steam FFS!

I remember bards tale as one of the last games on the spectrum I owned (I got an amiga the same year).

News Comments > Humble Indie Bundle #2 Sells $1M, Now on Steam

well I paid 10 (about $15?) I was only interested in titans - which I was going to buy anyway. I bought it via the bundle as I knew it would go on steam eventually (although not yet I believe it will do).

If people want to pay 0.01 then so be it. Thats up to them but in life things will bite them in the arse as that attitude will be present in other decisions they make. I pity their children too.

11. Re: Minecraft Enters Beta Dec 21, 2010, 04:39 Armengar
 
you people do realise that a beta is still a test release? It could happily kill all your save games and still be ok? Its a BETA not a release. Even if it performs WORSE than an alpha it is still testing. Perhaps it has a different code base for various procedures in order to stress test.

Stop whining and carry on testing it.

Its great apart from a) badboy and b) colonists are too slow.

This game will suck you in big time. I'd recommend playing as Japan (damn hard because of the tech limitations but a religious utopia) and portugal (very easy IMHO)

I liked NS but im not sure about NS2. I was one of the few that liked vanilla but also liked combat (with building too!). Vanilla needed hours of play to get a decent game when sometimes I only had 30 mins or so (perfect for combat).

The whole NS2 community seems dead set against combat, the threads are simply militant. Not sure i'll bother with NS2 until it is in a sale on steam.

wait till you go to america with a non us passport, you have pre check in screening, pre check in baggage screening, then check in, then more screening and more carry on checks. Oh and at JFK they were doing pre boarding checking too at one point. When I worked for Dell Ireland on data center training I regularly had to fly to india, UK, US and singapore and it was ALWAYS the US that caused the most issues.

I simply carried the essentials, bought a cheap netbook, uploaded all the stuff I needed via VPN, bought cheap clothes that I threw away as it was utter madness getting through the US. Never been on holiday to the US since - always the far east, canada, carribean or europe so the terrorists have won as I doubt I am the only family to think so.

"The judge told us he understood if we felt our time was wasted, but that our presence and the threat of trial is what prompted all those case settlements."

hah

more likely the lawyers had had their fees so they were happy to go home.

turn up with a "free aung san suu kyi" t shirt on and swear that you believe everyone deserves a second chance. That should excuse you pretty quickly.

Oh and people might laugh but "racing" isnt easy. Ive been a member of the classic motorcycle racing club for a few years and recently took my hand to sidecar racing. Its fucking scary (but a major rush). So hats off to the guy.
