I played Absolution a couple years back, still have it on this PC. Was a Doomsday mod basically, and a pretty good one at that.

News Comments > On Bulletstorm DRM and GFWL

Not really interested in the game anyway, not with "Crysis 2: Console Boogaloo" coming out less than a month later.

Anytime a game announces it'll use GFWL though I'm out. Steam is my "Service" and I don't need something else for my lazy ass to log into and watch eat up my CPU cycles. Last time I used GFWL was with Bioshock 2, and whenever the menu came up it messed with the colors of the textures and wouldn't fix itself until a level load. Steam has never done that.

Played the PS3 demo anyway and it wasn't anything special. Felt like that old arcade game "The Grid" only with over-the-top macho talk. *yawn*

The further 4chan-izing and meme-ization of gaming. How disgusting.

This isn't funny, it's stupid.

I love how the fanboys are spinning this as a "OMG look how dedicated they are to fixing this!"

If you have to release 3 patches within the first week and the game still isn't stable for a good portion of your users then you've failed as a developer. Time to start coming in and cleaning my office with all the other failures.

And here WoW players would always tell me Blizzard 'wants' gold sellers. I always said 'bullshit'. I guess I was right after all.

It's only because Blizzard isn't getting a cut. It's similar to how the mob takes out dealers who don't work for them or pay them a cut. Same thing here, just a different "drug".

If they gave Blizzard a cut of the profits under the table they wouldn't mind. It's like how they don't attack user-run player servers but that one where the admin made a few million selling in-game items was sued into oblivion.

When WoW goes Free-to-play in a few years they'll get into this business for themselves. Selling gear and gold for IRL cash. Until then they squash any of the little guys who try to do it before them.

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.

News Comments > Homefront Specs and Campaign Length
8. Re: Homefront Specs and Campaign Length Jan 24, 2011, 22:01 Icewind
 
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.
