All the buzz surrounding the leak and the positive comments about the game will only increase sales.

Any reviews of this or demo reviews? Does this game offer anything different from previous dungeon siege and diablo and torchlight?

Thank you for taking up the cause for our disabled players and letting us know about this problem.
Pleasing ignorance? Seems a little disengenuous. Yes this problem needed to be mentioned because no developer or manager thought of it while they were developing the game. If we didn't tell them that 2+2=4, they wouldn't know it is so. Yay us.

Really? Seriously?

You're saying that someone stood up and said "F*** the disabled, ship this thing!"

Come on.

Shit happens in development...of anything. Hell, Porsche didn't put cupholders in their 9-series bodies until after receiving letters from drivers aking, "Gee, where do I put my cup of coffee?" Seems obvious, but things can be missed.

I HIGHLY doubt that anyone did this either intentionally or maliciously. It's not like nudie art hidden in a WAD file or something.

^D^
No that's what you are saying. That's not what I'm saying. I'm saying that stuff like this happens because there is little economic reason to add remapping functions to a game that is primarily a console game. Same reason why it took the American with Disabilities Act to get handicapped people access to places. And the same reason why it took laws to get telephone companies to install telephone infrastructure in rural areas. It's not economical to do so.

Fuck 'em. Gimps don't spend nearly as much money as the non-crippled.

Wow you can make fun of the handicap. What a rebel you are. Keep on truckin' there buddy.
You should have quoted his reply and noticed something. Also notice all that unusual blue space in his post? What could be in there?

There is. I guess the point is to have it an option.. but part of me thinks that its not the responsibility of game makers to cater to EVERYONE.
Well with that attitude we would never have the Americans with Disabilities Act in the USA.. Nor would we have telephones or electricity in rural areas of the USA.

Great game and a great franchise - i certainly hope this isn't the end of Company of Heroes.
steep learning curve as an obstacle to new players trying to get started in Company of Heroes Online.
really?

That's why they developed dawn of war 2.

Other developers like Relic have said no to GFWL. Once again Epic doesn't get it about PC games. But I don't think they care at all.

The quote is disingenuous. Very basic functionality is tested in Q&A and the very basics don't work right. Unless the chance of these things happpening is so low, they had to know about it. But at least now they are making ammends so they will be foregiven by me at least.

Nope. Just people who don't have to worry about money like you do.
I think you are both wrong and the truth is somewhere between your respective extremes.

Do you feel the love from the devs. It feels more warm than the love from Valve even.

But still they should not have released the game in such a state but at least they are trying to make ammends.

News Comments > Magicka #1 on Steam, Bug Hunt Continues
4. Re: Magicka #1 on Steam, Bug Hunt Continues Jan 26, 2011, 10:40 Overon
 
The game is broken, especially the multiplayer. Single player stutters even on much faster rigs than the requirements stated. They have acknolwedged this and it's a priority to fix in the patches. Yesterday's patch helped and reading the steam forums, an official rep says that they will be releasing another patch today. The game was clearly released too early but they are doing a fantastic job communicating the problems and letting people know about the solutions. Read the official magicka steam forums for details.

This game will be really good when they patch it up and I have no doubt they will based on their communications on the steam forums.

ou're probably right. In any case, I picked it up on Steam. Played the first couple levels, really fun game. Doesn't seem very optimized though, runs a bit clunky and I've got a relatively high end gaming PC. Hopefully after some patches things clean up, but it's certainly an innovative game.
I have everything set to high and I have a high end PC and yet when moving around the scrolling of the environment is chunky like I'm getting low fps.

This will give a precedent to dev to stop making proper demos and force everybody pay money for this.
I think for multiplatform games, that ship has sailed and it's already happening.
I don't see many publishers agreeing to this, just the most financially hurting ones.
