If you are thinking of paying 2.50 for invisible war don't. Take it from the lead developer. His comments will tell you why:

News Comments > On OnLive Game Prices
14. Re: On OnLive Game Prices Jun 21, 2010, 22:39 Overon
 
Bottom line:
I pay full retail price to rent the game for a limited time plus the cost of OnLive subscription and I get a guarantee a minimum of 3 years of use and after that, some games I may continue to rent while other go away at the discretion of OnLive and the publishers, in which case I am left with nothing.

Has anyone reviews this OnLive thing and discussed the lag? Unless the experience is perfect, I don't see many hardcore gamers doing this.

A core game is whatever game Microsoft marketing is told to push.

News Comments > Kotick: Audience "Clamoring" for Subscription CoD
45. Re: Kotick: Audience Jun 20, 2010, 18:51 Overon
 
I think Kotick is right. They made Call of Duty franchise golden. If they made it subscription based, they would make even more money. Why? Because gamers are generally stupid. The developers and publishers have learned this fact after successfully monetizing stuff that used to be available at no additional charge: dedicated server, maps, and mods.

I don't think he gets it. Again we have to harp on the same thing over and over again. Invisible War design decisions were centered around console limitations:
1) controller only has so many buttons, mouse and keyboard have far more
2) console gamers play games on giant TV's many feet away from the screen and the game GUI has to be made for that in mind, pc gamers play close to their monitors
3) universal ammo is a dumb down make it easier to play for consoles design decision
4) small levels because of the console RAM limitations

I forgot the others because I have tried hard to put the game out of my mind.

That's twice now... When 0.2.0 came out, Crysis Maximum Edition was $20 bucks on Steam. Now new MWLL 0.3.0 comes out and they are offering it for $20 bucks again. That's how I got my Crysis Maximum edition, when it was last time on sale on Steam. Maybe it's a coincidence that their sales correspond with MWLL releases. I think $20 bucks is worth it so you can play MWLL. Pretty soon the MWLL devs will be porting MWLL to the Crysis Warhead/Crysis Wars engine with all the improvements in multiplayer network that entails. In Crysis you cannot download maps from servers that you do not have. There is no ability to do that. But in Crysis Warhead/Crysis Wars you can. That's one of the obvious multiplayer improvements.

Can't wait for MWLL to be put on Crysis Warhead/Crysis Wars. You can probably tell that I am a Mechwarrior and MWLL lover.

LL started on, and always has been, a Crysis mod. Wink
The project started as a BF2142 mod and then it was renamed to MWLL.
Proof is here, read the descriptions:

and

and

It is technically correct to say that MWLL was always a Crysis mod simply because it was not called MWLL before it was a Crysis mod. But the genesis of the entire project was on BF2142 first.

Mechwarrior Living Legends started out being developed for the battlefied 2142 engine. Then they went to Crysis engine and will soon be going to the Crysis Wars engine. It's been in development for at least since 2007. I don't think anyone who owns the rights to Battletech\Mechwarrior has a problem with this mod.

Thought it's always possible that we might be surprised... An unknown developer given the BSG license usually means shovelware.

They are fine tuning the balance. That cover seek behavior is huge. After this patch they have pretty much addressed the major issues that high level players have with the game (other than the lack of base building that some hate).

Kajetan I hope you are wrong I really do because I would hate a console controller style interface for Withcer 2.

I liked The Witcher so much that I bought both of the English language books released so far and plan on buying more as they come. I can't wait for Witcher 2.
