The DF9 links are dead. Whoop whoop.

I think their server is just getting hammered. It took a sec but it eventually came up for me...

So 51 posts and not one of you has bought these new versions and posted impressions. Just a whole lotta yammering about nostalgia.

It's funny, my daughter played the demo on my PS3 for a while and said it was really good, though she wasn't much of a strategy gamer. I started playing it - a lot. Just the demo though. Finally she walked by and said, 'Why don't you just buy the full version, cheapskate!'... Yup, I guess she got me there. Now I don't have an excuse, I'll definitely be grabbing this...

As for it being a port, I think the worst port in history would have to be Ride To Hell: Retribution. Man, I don't know how the orig....wait... *puts hand to earpiece*...I'm being told that this wasn't a port just the game itself...Oh. My. God...

*cue quick-zoom Doge meme and dun-dun-DUN! sound*

lol...all these "thanks Disney" comments...

Disney is the new Obama!

I wonder if that's a new corollary to Godwin's law:

As a thread increases in length, the probability of a comment blaming Obama approaches 1.

No, no, that's GamerGate...or Derek Smart...but we try not to talk about those things lest someone actually come up with a logical argument...

In TIE Fighter I loved sitting right behind capitals ships' engines, where the guns could get you, and slowly whittling down their shields and armor. If my memory serves me correctly I think by XvT they made approaching capital ships quite a bit more dangerous.

Yeah, you had to deal with 'Engine Wash'...which, if you think about it, apart from an SD actually turning around or another one showing up, how didn't the Alliance pick up on the elite skill of 'Squat and Pop'(tm)? Oh, right, it's not real and sitting in a movie theatre watching the Tantive IV make a 180 and sit behind the SD in the beginning of 'A New Hope' instead of getting 'Blasted and Boarded'(tm) would've sunk Lucas' career pretty quick. Got it.

I gave in and bought it, played through 2 sessions... even on easy it seems very easy to get everybody killed/your crystal destroyed. Defenses are needed, but the enemies can also just run the hell past them unless I'm missing something. Also there seems to be no way to close doors?

Yeah, I got it when it entered EA/Beta (whatever they call it - how about 'Before Final Release'?), thinking it was something like 'The Pit' in gameplay or maybe something like Starbound, which I was playing heavily at the time (and getting bored with). Nope on both counts. Was very perplexing gameplay - I gotta drag this thing everywhere I go whilst being assaulted? WTF? What, is this glorified escort missions (which I and about 99% of other gamers hate with a passion)? Suffice to say, I didn't go back to it, but I did grab the soundtrack because that shit is pretty epic...I give this one a PASS for me...*shrugs* YMMV...

My impressions:

-The force feedback is different for my wheel, hard to say if its improved or not at this point.
-The additional torque is noticeable through the throttle, making the cars more sensitive to excess wheel spin and oversteer.
-I haven't heard a car I liked; all engines sound awful.
-You no longer have access to change gear length in the car setup; the transmission tab is completely removed.
-There appears to be no way to adjust anything ERS related, such as harvesting or deployment rates (no more KERS button).
-Game performance is still smooth with no issues.

I miss the F1 2012 days where DRS and KERS could be used at any point of a hot lap, and now there's just DRS available in the designated parts of the track.

Ah, I'm not really sad to see it go, I wasn't a fan of all that bullshit anyway. Just give me an engine, four wheels, some brakes, a couple wings and a steering wheel with gear shifter and away I go! Race That DRS and KERS was for nerds...

Steam on capped broadband = total crap.

I reinstalled x-com enemy unknown the other day, I would've needed a friggin 8 GIGABYTES download to even get started and finish the installation. On a 20 gigs monthly cap its a no go. On GFWL at least the whole game would've been on the disc and no additional download would be necessary.

Indeed, there's another like Prison Architect in style, but from the prisoners side, more of a rogue-like, called The Escapists that just came out as well. I've been putzing around with it and it has definite potential but it's realllly early...

EDIT: When I started there was one video of some dude trying it out from the very first alpha release version and that was it. Now, there's many many more seemingly in just a few weeks...check it out!

hmmm...I own all of them except Ghosts (a huge failure of a game) - and maybe I am getting old as well...as I didn't see ANYTHING in that trailer that would make me want to spend my money on it....

It's not about you getting old, it's about the game (and the whole freakin' franchise) getting old! It's stale, overstayed it's welcome and it needs to be retired. Like Medal of Honor before it and Battlefield to soon follow it, the game is past it's prime, a new coat of makeup for the old twitch whore before being put out to pasture...the problem here is the game itself and the old concepts behind it being reinvented with new buzzwords each time but having the same tired gameplay...

Enough already! Like WW2 shooters, Zombies and RTS's (long ago), the genre is starting to smell like old wank (to quote a semi-well known game critic)...

i have 8 gigs in my computer and 8 gigs sitting on my desk that i bought a year and a half ago and i'm too lazy to install it.

I'll gladly take that extra 8 gigs off your hands if they're such a bother!

I've got a modest system by today's standards, going on 4 years old - a Core i5-750/2.8ghz, Gigabyte P55M-UD2 motherboard (small yet vicious Nod ), 6gigs of DDR3/667, and a one year old AMD Radeon HD7850, which is about the only thing that's been continually updated over the years. (Started with an HD4870/512mb (one of the cards from the first generation to come out, before the 1gb models took over a few months later - sometimes it pays not to be an early-adopter), then an HD5770/1gb which was slightly faster with a little more VRAM but limited (ie. crippled) with an easily bottlenecked 128-bit bus (I mean, WTF, AMD?!) and then finally an HD7850/1gb last year because it was relatively cheap (you'd think I'd have learned by now, but no) only for the fan to die on it about 8 months later requiring an RMA to fix though it runs beautifully now).

I did have 10gigs of RAM at one point but had to sacrifice 4gigs for another system build to save money. Six gigs is adequate for most things while working in Windows7/x64 or 8.1/x64 but in games I can clearly see a distinct difference from when I had 10gigs to what I have now. Another 8gigs would be absolutely awesome! I might actually be able to play Minecraft at a decent frame rate full-screen then!

Yeah well, who the fuck does code optimization anyway right? We can just throw more hardware at it!! Take that shitty code!

We wanted this, it was the only benefit the new consoles gave pc gamers.

Indeed. Until you remember that the game is coming out on PS3 and Xbox360. How much memory does the Xbox360 have again???

If the game's minimum PC spec is 6GB of RAM but still plays on last-gen consoles, odds are they downsized assets to fit the 360/PS3. At this point in its lifecycle, 360/PS3 playability is a concession rather than the baseline.

Exactly my point. They bother optimising and developing for last gen consoles, yet they never really bother about doing anything with the PC version at all, past a half-assed port at best.

You're glossing over the money side of this equation. How much do they get from Sony and MS for supporting previous gen consoles? In addition there are those that don't have the new systems and have no PC or a shitty one and play the new releases and believe it or not, that's still a rather large group. So you get profits from that too. With just the PC you have no kickbacks from a particular dev/publisher and you have to optimize for some arbitrary spec which may or may not equal what most gamers have under their desks. So, it's the difference between a shotgun slug round and buckshot...a near sure-thing or a 50/50 and given that the sole reason they're in the business in the first place is money, then the answer is pretty clear...

Been playing Alien: Isolation and I dunno. The start of it was pretty rad, I liked the parts all the way up to meeting what's his face that dies after 10 minutes to introduce the Alien. Then I got to the entrance to the com tower and killed the three people with a wrench. Somehow I thought maybe I wasn't supposed to kill the girl? Well, she's dead. The reason I asked is because when I went back, only her body was there, the other two blokes were gone and then the Alien showed up, put it's tail through my back, grabbed my face and I was done for the night. Haven't been back since because I've been busy but I've been thinking about it. Like, I think I was having more fun trying to figure out what was going on in the station and the sub-plot with the rioters and whatnot. Once the Alien actually showed up, it felt like I was just going to be running from locker to locker. Am I wrong? Tell me there are just particular areas it shows up in. And am I crazy for just wanting to investigate the station instead of run from the Alien? That's the point of the game...maybe it's just me getting old...

You know what makes the game even better ? That it butt-hurts hypocritical responders like this.

By the way I think those quotes can go right on the gamebox, they will do a perfect job

I can't wait to reap gore-bucket-loads of deliciously maniacal, insane, laugh out loud, shit eating grin CARNAGE!

On another note, I pray you look at the team making the game on the website. See those lovely chaps ?
They look like a bunch of gore-grind metal loving horror movie fanatics. They are making a game for their subcultures, directed to other partakers in these glorious darker fun laden death obsessed subcultures.
Don't like it ? Take a hike. Go look at games made for you. Spewing shit like this game should not be made, let misfortune befall lthe buyers etc is just not ok.

Yeah, it is trash - trash culture. Deliberately transgressive because it still gets a rise out of people, who all should really know better.

you've got 2 posts and just joined yesterday... are you one of the devs by any chance?

I was actually thinking the same thing...
