News Comments > NVIDIA Responds to ATI PhysX Comments
30. Re: NVIDIA Responds to ATI PhysX Comments Mar 13, 2010, 11:23 Muscular Beaver
 
I wouldnt want to miss PhysX anymore. It was awesome in Batman or Mirrors Edge for example. Nowadays, with the ports having almost the same graphics as the console original, its at least something that still gives me the feeling that I am playing a real PC game, and not some half-assed console port.
Now DX10.1, that was useless, and I fear DX11 will be too when I look the extremely short list of DX10 games after 3 years.

AMDs hardware is awesome, but their drivers are STILL just horrible. 2 Years ago I sold my 4850 because it still had the same graphic glitches that my old Radeon 8500 did and STILL the flashing graphics issue. Thats just sad.
I am glad that Nvidia has such an awesome driver support.

I assume the DLC will be $5. Usually game companies over-estimate how much time it takes to complete something, so it's probably one hour long, not 90 minutes. So $5 for an hour. Not a good deal to me since you can get the full game, used, for $30. And that's 20-25 hours of gameplay.

*shrug* But I'm sure ME fanboys will jump on it

Bull. The full game is only 20-25 hours if you rush through it. Do any of the extra missions and you get a whole boatload more hours, which are in no way "filler" hours. I challenge anyone to get ME2 and play it in 25 hours and not know with absolute certainty that there's a whole lot more they skipped just so that they could see the end cinematic.

Because I had very bad experiences in this aspect of the gme in the previous part (completed it after about 10 hours), I developed a phobia in ME2. I absolutely made sure that I get every sidemission and explore every planet. I completed the game in 45 hours that way. The sidemissions werent really good, because they were extremely short and straightforward, but to be fair, they were far better than the ones in the first part.

I've Got The News Blues:
You shouldn't try to criticize Steam on BN, because it has by far the hardest Steam-fanboy base, only topped by the offical forums.

Dunno why its that way, because BN user normally are very objective.

On a side note: Microsoft has today announced that they want to implement a similar DRM to Steam and Ubisoft in their games, with even more super-awesome hyper go-go features that EVERYONE needs so hard. Yes, even worse than GFWL.

Thanks to everyone who supported Steam.

Their DRM scheme is fundamentally a failure !
What if you loose internet connection, what if I loose my job and can't pay for internet anymore? I loose access to the game I paid for.
And you cant even sell it.

I dont think its all pirates. Look at the German test on gamersglobal.de for example. They gave it 3/10 points mainly because of the bugs.

Putting in such checks hurts their sales even more than some DRM.

Hearsay spreads fast and if many people cant play the game because they think its full of bugs, they will tell that other people and they wont buy it because they think its buggy as shit.

Its extremely stupid to put in such checks. But Ubi knows best anyway, right? Right???

Not buying any Ubisoft games from now on goes without saying (would at least have bought SH5, SC:C and GR).
But I would really like to see a sales number comparison between the last Prince of Persia without DRM and the new one with this rectal ex... err "copy protection".

I really cant wait for this game. PHJF remembered me how funny it sometimes was. Owning marines as a gorge, the funny noises it made, the onos blocking everything and wiping the whole alien team because noone could escape, a whole wall of defense towers etc. It was awesome. I just hope they keep the original gameplay, and maybe take it a bit further.

Creston thanks for your insights. Yeah, too bad really. Consoles won this round.

They are winning the war.

Anyway, I didnt test the demo yet, but if what Creston says is even remotely true, I wont be buying it.

Did you even bother to read my posts?
"Sheesh"

Oh and btw, inflation here in Germany is almost 0% now since the 90s.
Games still got a bit more expensive.

Maybe return to the old PC-road and simply charge more money for PC games? I personally would glady pay up to $30 more for a properly done PC game.
I don't know.

Newly-released PC games aren't that cheap anymore. Sure they go on sale and/or hit the bargain bin fairly quickly but at release a $50 USD price tag is common.

I'd have a very hard time justifying spending $80 USD on a game; I've only done that a couple of times in my life. Once or twice for a big special edition of the game (which I later regretted) and the lifetime subscription to Champions Online.

Publishers really care about the sales during the openining weeks, and rightfully so. That's when the hype is at its max and the game is as shiney as it's ever going to be. Raising regular prices to $80 would kill sales near launch, which of course would dissuade further PC game development.

Now, if the money was spread out over time, like SiN Episodes was supposed to be then I'd be alright with it: $20 here, $20 there, sure. I'm less enthusiastic about Star Craft 2's plan, but if each campaign is large enough then I might deal with it.


To clear it up a little, I wouldnt pay $80 for MW2, even if its graphics, controls and gameplay were directly developed for the PC. Now, if it had a singleplayer campaign 5-10 times as long, too, dedicated servers, LAN, great modablility, no GFWL or similar crap, then I would consider it.

I wont pay $80 for a console port that plays just the same on the PC and only has better graphics and mouse support.

They should just pick up where they left off and do real PC games again. But its kinda hard to explain what a real PC game is when many people forgot how real PC games were and how they should be today if the console wouldnt have killed em.

Bad, bad piracy! BAD!

How about you start asking yourself why pirating is a problem (if it really is)?
Maybe its the DRMs and similar that make people think that a game isnt worth their money with all the hassle?
Maybe its the lackluster console ports that cant be called PC games because they are so extremely dumbed down, simple and most of the time dont even have a proper control system?
Maybe its the implementation of "features" that no one wants and that are only a hassle?
Maybe its the curtailment of freedom that the PC was once known for?
Maybe its because people notice that PC gaming has actually regressed/stood still?

Seriously, they cut all the freedom from PC gaming, dumb games down, cut down content, deliver shitty controls, laughable console-graphics and then they wonder why their games are pirated more than ever before?
Why do they think they can do that to such an open and powerful platform, that is the PC, without consequences?
They ARE stupid.

Maybe return to the old PC-road and simply charge more money for PC games? I personally would glady pay up to $30 more for a properly done PC game.

It prolly isnt doomed. There will always be browser games, MMOs and maybe console ports. But PC gaming, as it once was is already as good as dead. There are only very few games left that have the complexity, options, gameplay, graphics, etc. that PC games were once known for.

Commercialized, yes. Open Source, there is a lot on the table.

Yeah and such games will be very rare. Not enough to keep PC gaming being my hobby.
Also I highly doubt that those will be very good games since there simply wont be enough money to make quality games. PC games cost a lot of money, even more so if you want good quality and no game that is over after 5 hours.
