News Comments > PC Gamer on "Bad Company 2 Patch Fiasco"

I've been playing all evening with the new patch and haven't run into any of the problems being discussed. Not sure what's up, maybe it's something on the server side for some hosts.

Didn't they announced the other week that they've got 25 million unique accounts, so I'd assume that means they've sold 25 million copies?

A certain number of those probably include people on consoles playing either used or borrowed copies of the game. I believe the last sales milestone they reported was 15M copies which is still absolutely insane which 1M is considered a hit.

News Comments > Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Server Fixes Follow-up
5. Re: Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Server Fixes Follow-up Mar 8, 2010, 12:38 Parallax Abstraction
 
It still blows me away when people get surprised about a botched DICE launch. This has happened with literally every title they've released in recent memory except maybe Mirror's Edge. All the PC Battlefield games was broken and needed multiple patches and Bad Company 1 and BF1943 on consoles all had these same server capacity issues at launch. I'm happy to see that the game is apparently blowing away expectations since I think it kills Modern Warfare and that franchise needs a worthy competitor. But DICE's MO seems to be lowballing the initial server capacity and then scaling it up when they know what the sales are so they don't spend anything they don't have to. This is just what they do. It's ridiculous but also not surprising.

News Comments > R.U.S.E. Public Beta Preloads

I'm honestly surprised too. Remember when you used to see games that were to have StarForce on them having their demos protected too? That was apparently done so that people couldn't use the demo's EXE as a means to backwards engineer the final product. I figured something similar could be done here but since this is only the multiplayer beta and there's no save's to put on the Ubisoft servers, maybe they don't need it.

News Comments > Ubisoft DRM Titles Confirmed
91. Re: Ubisoft DRM Titles Confirmed Feb 28, 2010, 02:25 Parallax Abstraction
 
I had a pretty spirited debate with a former industry person about this issue on Twitter tonight. He claims to know several major people at Blizzard and that they have told him StarCraft 2, Diablo 3 and any title that uses Battle.net 2.0 will make use of very similar DRM that will require you to be online all the time, even to play the single player portions of their games. He obviously wouldn't say who he knows so this isn't confirmed or anything but if that's true, expect this issue to become a way bigger stink than it even is now.

3. Re: More Mass Effect 2 Cerberus DLC Next Month Feb 26, 2010, 12:10 Parallax Abstraction
 
This pretty much sums up my opinion on this free-to-people-who-buy-new DLC issue. Piracy and ridiculous DRM are one thing but no one is required to give you extra content for free when you bought a used copy of the game they didn't see a cent from. You want to save money by buying used, they aren't saying you can't but then you don't get all the free stuff people who actually supported them get,

That's your problem, then.

Unfortunately your your constant arrogant trolling and shilling for Microsoft is everyone's problem on here.

I'll be blown away if the game just isn't a broken mess when it's released and still doesn't have major issues multiple patches later like every other Battlefield game. Even Bad Company 1 and 1943 on consoles had broken matchmaking and lag issues at launch that it took them weeks to fix.

SouthPeak's a bunch of crooks. Them failing can't happen soon enough in my opinion. Hopefully the pile of developers and contractors suing them for failed payments can get their stuff recovered first though.

Gotta' love the American way of doing business. "I don't care who gets screwed over as long as I get what I want!" Not that this sort of thing doesn't happen elsewhere too but it's funny how much more often it's a US CEO who's involved.

I hope these drivers actually work on my Palit 4850 rather than show a Code 31 error.

News Comments > Shattered Horizon Free This Weekend
8. Re: Shattered Horizon Free This Weekend Feb 17, 2010, 12:54 Parallax Abstraction
 
I bought this during the Steam sale and I actually really like it. It's a very different take on online FPS. Problem is that because of the high system requirements (which it didn't need because while it looks good, I don't see where it really benefits from needing DX10), not many people bought it and fewer have stuck around. I used my 3-day passes on two friends and while they both enjoyed it, the population was too low to convince them to buy it. I'm hoping this free weekend combined with the new maps will breathe new life into it as it's a really good and more important, unique idea. If you haven't tried it, I highly recommend giving it a shot this weekend.

I hope this brings some players back. I really enjoy this game but there has never been a large population playing it and it has only dwindled over time. It's a shame because it's a really good game but they limited their audience so much with the high requirements for a game that honestly, I don't think benefits from them in any significant way.

Codemasters are the ones behind Operation: Flashpoint.

They aren't actually. Bohemia Interactive developed that game, Codemasters just published it. Bohemia split off from them but Codemasters got to keep the name, hence the laughable Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising. Bohemia's since developed ArmA and ArmA II which are spiritual sequels to the original Operation Flashpoint.

Didn't people hate the PC version of the first one, generally saying it was a lousy console port? If that's the case, would anyone even care that DS2 isn't coming for PC?
