News Comments > More Infinity Ward Departures
29. Re: More Infinity Ward Departures Apr 14, 2010, 18:13 Overon
 
I always enjoy seeing employees quit and find something better. Activision is a huge failure for letting the top cream of the crop talent loose. It really reflects poorly on their management.

2K Marin? I bet when it's released it will be like Bioshock 2. They can't even get the aspect ratio and fov correct, to this day in Bioshock 2. 2K Marin are incompetent. I am not going to hold my breath.

FEAR was good. FEAR 2 was not. FEAR 3 will be good if it's PC centered not console centered but it won't be so I think odds are that it will be not good. Can't argue with my logic.

Maybe I can now play the game with newer graphics? When it's fully out which like the ongoing patches will ongoing for all eternity. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

Map pack. Map packs used to be free by developers. Always free by modders. Not anymore.

If you feel that gaming journalists are being corrupted, then there are plenty of game blogs where there are no advertisements and your fellow gamers are writing the reviews. Just look.

News Comments > Duke Nukem Forever Answers, Footage
20. Re: Duke Nukem Forever Answers, Footage Apr 5, 2010, 15:48 Overon
 
The only people making a big deal are the same people making the same complaints for the 100th time. So if all you guys can do is complain, don't you at least come up with new complaints, if not why bother posting?
No offense but if someone has made the same complaints for the 100th time, then your complaint about the complaining, is the same complaint for the 50th time.

I think you should appreciate the irony about complaining about complaining. I would also hope you see the logical fallacy in it as well.

News Comments > MW2 Stimulus Package Interview
10. Re: MW2 Stimulus Package Interview Apr 5, 2010, 13:59 Overon
 
It's a map pack!

Remember the voices who rattled off reasons why MW2 is bad for pc gaming. There is no publicly released client/server, no mods. Well now you have a case in point. If you control the entire platform then you don't allow free stuff. You can now charge for additional content, including map packs.

Remember when map packs were updates you got for free? Remember when maps used to be created by the community and would sometimes be more popular than the developer maps? Remember those days? Now IW who got their start as a company in the PC gaming market, try to monotonize everything they can. Remember all those Call of Duty mods and maps and mods back on the PC? Well guess what, no more free maps for you.

The game is a true PC game, designed for the PC in mind. You just couldn't do a game like this on the console.

However there are still a lot of rough edges. They have the talent to fix up the game's interface for example. I wish they would do that. Hopefully they will do that in the next one.

I guess the lesson here is that even if you do thing for free and with good intentions, in the end that's not a big factor in a big company's decision making.

Maybe I don't understand, but form the limited information that we have, I would say that it was wishful thinking to announce MW4 free release before it was a done sure deal.

Remember the days when the community created more maps and better maps than the developer... for free?

We are working really hard to make sure that key features such as user-defined resolutions, interface and both keyboard and game pad control sets are all up to the standards for today’s discerning PC consumer.
This is now a special treat whereas before it was par for the course. Don't forget the aspect ratio cutoff problems and\or low FOV issues that is now par for the course for console to pc ports.

EA/Dice strikes again. History repeats itself. Everyone should know what they will get from EA/Dice by now unless they have short memories.

Actually the science of HFCS and sugar says there is no difference healthwise. But there is a taste difference because table sugar and HFCS can have different ratios of glucose to fructose. See here for more information:

Let that be a lesson to you, stop paying extra for "black" and "special" and "collector's" editions.
