I don't think IW ever promised that stuff.

Played the 360 demo out of curiosity and the graphics were hideous. Jagged edges, no HDR and it had that UE3 style "Takes 5 seconds for textures to load" problem.

The PC version shouldn't have these problems, thank goodness.

Just admit it...you wanted to push it out the door and figured you could play this nice guy act to gain the sympathy of your customers.

Ain't working.

Amazon's site says February 28th, and that's just for the "Regular" PC version.

that website is a pimple on the ass of the internet!

Only a devoted Blues news member would be know this.

8 hours is ridiculously short. HL1 was 3 times that and HL2 was a solid 14.

It's sad that so many people think that's acceptable. Then again, most of these older "OMG I GOTZ KIDZ AND AN UGLY WIFE NOW BAWWWWWWW" gamers want a game they can pound out in 2 hours and then brag to their other 40+ year old gamer wannabe friends that they beat something other than a casual kiddie game for once in their miserable post-gamer retired life.

Every other website says February 8th.

So which date is right?

(EDIT: I mean the PC version, not the consoles)

At least I'm not a welfare console owner.

Enjoy playing in shitty resolution, console kiddies.

Also, get a job.

The file size for a demo alone for Rage would probably be ginormous, so I can't blame them.

Oh quit it already. Excuses excuses.

Next up you'll find an excuse for Carmack's thinning hair or why his teeth are getting yellow.

Get off of it. You don't need to White Knight the S.O.B. They sold out and were corrupted by their new taskmasters. Same as Bioware was with EA and Blizzard was with Activision.

Bobby "Nodick" Kotick doesn't deserve any sympathy. As far as I'm concerned West and Zampella could poison his wife, run over his dog, give him AIDS, dump out his fish tank, burn his cat, slam into his car, bash out his windows and empty his bank account and I'd STILL take their side.

Human refuse is what he is.

How about updating some more of the old SSI gold box games? That'd rock!

Why? You can run them easily in DOSbox and if you want visual updates just run it in an HQ filter.

And if you mean the controls you can do what I did and make a custom mapper for them in DOSbox that maps the keyboard commands to your controller. I went through the three Krynn games and Curse of the Azure bonds/Gateway to the Savage Frontier with that setup.

Awesome. One question though. Weren't they DRM free to begin with?

Actually the original had something called "Laser lock" on it which was just a simple disc check. Later patches combined with a full install removed that requirement, however.

IWD 2 had a disc check too. I know because I removed it.

The rest I'm not entirely sure.

Trainwreck wrote on Jan 18, 2011, 16:49:

My main complaint is that it's all so much more advanced than Deus Ex. And I'm talking about core technologies...Gunther Hermann and Anna Navarre's augmentations where ghetto and they were portrayed as rustbuckets on the way out. Human Revolution's augs seem so much more capable than anything JC Denton or Alex D had, with the exception that the latter's was nanotech.

Admittedly, that's a big step, but again, Hermann and Navarre never exhibited anything close to what we're seeing in the Human Revolution trailers.

See, this is what bothers me the most. The only reason they're doing this is because it's "Fashionable" to do reboots or prequels. Also, they want to try to attract newbies to the series that don't want to or can't play the original game.

They should have just made this an "alternate ending" spin-off to DX1. Maybe have it where JC failed and Bob Page succeeded. That would have been infinitely more interesting than a prequel. It would have also made for one incredible cybernetic Bob Page fight at the end.

Is their Radiant AI still going to be light years behind what was in 2003's Gothic 2?

It is?

Pathetic.

News Comments > CliffyB on No PC Bulletstorm Demo
65. Re: CliffyB on No PC Bulletstorm Demo Jan 17, 2011, 16:11 Icewind
 
If Epic cared about the PC they wouldn't still be peddling around UE3 like it was state-of-the-art. Truth is, the same bottlenecks that hamper it on the consoles also hamper it on the PC. There is very little difference. Ever notice why the textures take so long to load in Bioshock both on the PC and the Xbox3-shitty?

Everytime a game uses UE3 I groan. Jesus, I'd rather them use IDtech 4 for christ's sake than use UE3. At least *that* engine knows how to properly cache assets and benefit from more than 2GB of RAM.

CliffyB couldn't care less about the PC. The only developers that do are over in Eastern Europe. Companies like Cd Projekt or GSC Gameworld.

That's sort of why I think there is a small, tiny, minuscule glimmer of hope with Bullet storm. People Can Fly is a Polish developer, and if they can recapture their Painkiller glory days they'll have a great shooter on their hands.

Sadly, in order to test this I'll have to play the demo on my PS3 and if it's good, buy it for my PC.

I guess developers would rather chase after redneck, trailer trash poor people who only own consoles than the affluent people like me who own top-of-the-line gaming rigs. Maybe I should buy a white tank top, drink some Pabst Blue Ribbon and take up chewing tobacco so I can be like the cool gamers.

Naw, they already plan on it. They've always planned on it. The only reason they want it to look like there isn't any hope for a PC release is because they want PC gamers to "Cave-in" and buy the console version.

This was also done with Mass Effect 1. And Jade Empire. And Gears of War. And Fable 3....and you get the idea.

Capcom lost me as a customer when they pulled the "DLC on the Disc" trick. 2K did it with Bioshock 2 as well.

They must think gamers are very gullible.

Rein chuckled at Indie devs at a meeting last year because he found their love for their fans to be naive. The guy is a total douchebag.

No one at Epic is a PC Gamer. They are all console casual kiddies. I hope they come here and read this, because I'd love to invite them over and tell it to their casual*** faces. They are babies, plain and simple.

Real men don't play with joysticks, only ***s and women do.
