How many more years before the Xbox and Live is obsolete?

Can't happen soon enough. $33.99 is still $33.99 more than it costs to do all the same things, but better on a PC.

Got this for the 360 and I am enjoying it quite a bit. More games need to license the destruction system this game uses.

Who gives two shits about a non gameplay trailer?

It prevents me from forgetting about the game until a real gameplay video comes out. You know, 3 weeks before release.

I have a xbox360. The DLC is free on PS3. I really hope this makes the PS3 version sell a boatload more. Maybe Microsoft will realize stuff like this is costing sales of the game and the DLC.

I hope these concerns about the matchmaking system are untrue and only apply to if you play "Quick Pick". I guess we'll all find out in 3 hours. It's obviously unconfirmed right now so please save your "OMG WTF VALVE FUK U" for later.

Edit - for reference Matchmaking replaces traditional server browser on PC version?


I hope they are untrue as well, there is still the "play online" option, which sounds like it could be the traditional server browser option. I generally hate lobby style quick pick setups. However this game may not be your standard style of FPS multiplayer gameplay, where you join a server with a round in progress, join a team and just play till next round.

Isnt this a sign that the game isnt really doing that well?

not really. It is a sign of the times that new MMO's are going to have a ton of people who buy the game but then don't stay past 1 or 2 months. They have to have enough servers at launch or people will complain big time. Once a lot of people leave, they need to consolidate the low pop servers. I think it is good that Mythic seems to already have the code and process in place to do this right when needed instead of months down the line.

I find this hard to believe... It's highly unlikely that they are picking up more subscribers considering the increase in competition. I'm sure they'll get some when the new expansion comes out, but that hasn't happened yet. Makes me think they are counting people who have expired accounts.


Their subscriber base has been growing slightly or staying even all along. A lot of old vets are now returning for the xpac, including myself. My guild message board has at least 1 post a week from a player who quit and is returning. Thats why you see a jump in numbers and queue times.

You can still play the demo before buying the game. You just don't get EARLY access to the demo.

News Comments > Far Cry 2 Widescreen Issue

If that's true, then what are you complaining about? I thought your problem was that the view in widescreen had been cropped? Also, read that sentence again. The whole thing, and think about it. There's a difference between horizontal and vertical FOV.

http://www.widescreengamingforum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=14737

Scroll down a little. See the example of 4:3 with the red bars indicating where the crop is to make it 16:9 ? horizontal view is fixed, the vertical view is cropped to make it 16:9.

Now go here. http://www.widescreengamingforum.com/screenshots/

First image you should see is Bioshock which is perfect since it had this problem, then was fixed.

See how only horizontal view is widened to make it 16:9 instead of cropping the vertical view thus taking image away?

If you still don't get it, then I nor anyone else can't explain it to you.


I still dont get it. The horizontal FoV is the important one that deals with game difficulty, suspense and what the devs expect player to see, etc. Set that equal on both types of monitors. Instead of users with 4:3 monitors seeing black bars on the top and bottom, let us increase vertical FoV since that hardly matters anyway.

In case you missed "what I did there". I gave the exact same argument but changed the words which deal with personal opinion to reflect my personal preference and not yours.

I have GTA4 on my 360 and the multiplayer is a blast, but everytime I play I just keep thinking how much better it can be on a PC.

I love cops and robbers. SOmetimes though, the rounds will end so quick and then you are back in the lobby with another 3 minutes of queue and host kicking BS. You exit out if the host picks lame options you dont want, and even though there are like 300k people playing online, you rejoin the same game over and over. Give me a dedicated server PLEASE.

I think GTA RACE mode is a blast, but there really isnt a point in even doing it if you dont set the number of laps to 6 7 or 8. Set at 2 laps, the person who wrecks bad will never catch another racer or be passed by anyone the remainder of the race. At 8 laps, that person who is dead last and has no chance can block the on ramp with a greyhound and cause all kinds of chaos to race leaders.
Unfortunately you join a lobby and the host will set the laps to two, you exit and rejoin and get the same crap. You spend 5 minutes in the lobby for a race that last 4 minutes.

I want dedicated servers.
I want pages of dedicated servers, let me pick the one I like with the ping I like with map/race voting at the end of a round.

there is a level of detail setting in the current version of WoW.

I think there is a way to exceed it with a console command in the current game too.

The shadows are new though.
