News Comments > Hellgate's North American F2P Return
18. Re: Hellgate's North American F2P Return May 19, 2011, 16:39 Icewind
 
Played the original beta back in October of 2007. You know what was funny? Most of the bugs they killed in the beta CAME BACK IN THE RETAIL GAME...and they weren't patched out until a month later. This game was a comedy of errors, except for the poor sods that bought a lifetime sub.

I actually did pay for one month just to see what you got. You were given nothing but apple cider, potatoes and a lv11 flaming gauntlet. That's it. What's worse is the flaming gauntlet was dropping like crazy and every douche nozzle in the game was wearing one.

The engine ran like crap, the game frequently crashed, online play was abysmal due to lag and the bugs (such as disappearing models making your teammates invisible to everyone but them) made it nearly unplayable online.

Even if they fixed everything they can't fix the fact that the game just plain sucked. It was a poor man's 3D Diablo, that's it. Nothing more.

Pre-ordered the $120 one from Gamestop. Sorry, I need my box and goodies.

Got 62 bucks from trading in 3 crappy Wii games, so that took a bit of the bite off of it.

A game, too hard? Oh noes! It's suppose to be easy because I hate having to work in an RPG.

BWA HAHAHAHAHAHA

Loved that article. Such laughter.

^This is so true, sadly.

PS:T2 would end up exactly like Dragon Age 2. Some anime-inspired diablo rip-off with no real substance whatsoever.

Let the first game stand on its own and remain untainted.

News Comments > No Fable III Windows Demo
3. Re: No Fable III Windows Demo May 11, 2011, 15:26 Icewind
 
Fable 1 was semi-decent. Somewhat dumbed down over a standard RPG.

Fable 2 was a shredded, dumbed down version of Fable 1, making it nothing but a very easy bare-bones action RPG with a very small and non-interactive world.

Fable 3, from what I've seen, is an even more dumbed down version of Fable 2.

Pass.

Map packs? No single player story DLC to fix the stupid anti-climactic ending or lack of a boss fight?

HAHAHAHHA

No.

Whilst Risen and Gothic 2 weren't bad, it just amazes me they really don't come close to how good Gothic was.

G1 was your favorite? I don't see many people saying that, but I can't blame you since it wasn't as ball-bustingly hard as G2 and good equipment was extremely easy to find/glitch early.

My list is this:

Gothic 2 > Gothic 1 > Risen > Gothic 3

I think Gothic 2 was a much more complete game than 1. Larger world, tougher monsters, harder to get equipment.

Of course in Gold they messed it all up by letting you grab the Master Sword right in the beginning and letting you dominate everything for the first 4 chapters with a 110 damage sword that only needed 60dex.

8GB would kill it's ability to use DLC...and DLC is basically all this console generation runs on anymore.

One step forward, two steps back.

News Comments > Why RAGE Has No Deathmatch
1. Re: Why RAGE Has No Deathmatch May 1, 2011, 13:51 Icewind
 
I'm glad to see this. Long ago I grew tired of deathmatch. I would much rather do coop with friends than play competitively against a bunch of randoms.

Everyday I hear about Rage I like it more and more. It's like a more FPS-centric Borderlands.

As someone who couldn't care less about sports, I'm not sure which would be more torturous to watch.



What kind of man are you that you don't like sports? Oh right, a gamer nerd. Sorry.

Also, regardless of whomever the gi-ANTS pick, they'll always lose two games a season to the Eagles.

Diablo III will be out just in the nick of time for me to enjoy my 128 core China made UPU with 4320p Red-Ray resolution holograph projector, and 1TB of DDR5 system Ram, with unlimited Google storage over Fiberoptic channel 100GBethernet unlimiband ISP. Still with Keyboard and Mouse, and that suits me just fine!

mid 2012 at Earliest, the race is on, will we live to see the day of D3 install.exe past 05/21 ? You decide!

You know, when PCs get to the point when we have 1TB of RAM as a middle-of-the-road standard sort of figure, we'll probably have consoles getting by with 250GB of it and we'll still be playing second fiddle to the poor boy machines.

I just bought a 6950 last month and I'm running the 11.2 without a problem. After hearing about an earlier poster here having BSODs, I'm going to pass.

Finding a decent driver for my ATI cards has always been hit-or-miss. Whenever I find a decent one I hang onto it like it was the last lifeboat on the Titanic.

I use totally different passwords for everything I register, so I'm not concerned. The live.com address I had tied to my PSN has a completely different password so good luck on getting that.

As for my CC #'s, I wasn't sure which of my two I used so I just closed them both tonight and asked for new ones. Just means I'll be paying with checks for the next 5-7 business days.

From now on though I'll be using pre-paid cards to buy stuff on PSN.

News Comments > The Witcher 2 Console Plans Confirmed?
12. Re: The Witcher 2 Console Plans Confirmed? Apr 27, 2011, 00:21 Icewind
 
From what I've been seeing in the previews (Most recently on gamespot) the game looks very consolified. You have quick time events that auto-kill any enemy in one successful hit, a GUI that doesn't take advantage of the keyboard and a slimmed down skill system. It just reeks of console design decisions.

I'm still buying it, but I'm not expecting TW1.

....and this is why I like Randy Pritchford & co.

This guy is a class act and his company is the only one that can do some decent DLC.

Keep it up, Gearbox. Much respect.

....and Valve goes down too.

I also love how they were deleting threads about the "Don't turn off your console" message and only stopped deleting them when people started asking questions.

Then they conveniently posted a reply 5 minutes later "explaining" why it still said console instead of "PC". Apparently, they simply "forgot" to change it.

Combine this with the $85 DLC nonsense and you have to be stupid to support Valve now. I'm done with them.

This ARG stuff is so childish. I suppose people who have no job, no life, and nothing better to do don't mind scouring through files and looking through garbage indie games to find clues that may or may not reveal something nobody gives a crap about.

Me? I'd rather, you know, play the game.

I don't ever plan on playing it on the PS3 so I just bought it for Steam. Portal with a controller just doesn't appeal to me.

I might play it with my girlfriend split-screen CO-Op on the PS3...

Yeah, if you ever get a girlfriend.
