Damnit Kosumo it is not irrational to preorder a game that you are going to buy anyway. So rather than paying full price, you might as well get a discount and extras that YOU WOULDN'T HAVE GOTTEN OTHERWISE IF YOU DID NOT PREORDER.

They've mentioned that there will be a closed beta and that they will be handing out keys to game sites to give away.

I'll be picking it up, just hope the player numbers don't dwindle away to nothing like they did with Homefront and Brink. I'm sure they'll take a massive hit when Battlefield 3 is released.
I don't agree about the massive hit. RO2 is about realism, Battlefield 3 is not so much. But there probably will be a hit. There is a group of people in the RO community that would not be caught dead playing the cods or battlefields of the world so you will always find games for RO2, just as now you can find games of RO1.

News Comments > Quoteworthy - John Carmack on Game Violence
4. Re: Quoteworthy - John Carmack on Game Violence Jul 30, 2011, 19:25 Overon
 
One thing that Carmack is wrong about is the cathartic effect. He's got to pick up a more recent book on violence and realize that the "steam boiler" effect he refers to when he says cathartic, is a myth that's been discredited. But that does not mean that violent video games increase violence in real life. They are simply on balance, neutral.

Stealth was a bit too easy in the leaked press build. Enemies always appeared on your radar as long as they were within range. You didn't need line of sight or sound. Enemies also had very narrow vision cones and no vertical detection of sound.
Stealth was too easy in the press build. I went the pure stealth non lethal route and I quickly realized the detection limitations of the AI that you mentioned. I doubt they fixed this but I think the plot implications and world is intriguing.

It's hard to discover people's motives. But some might accuse John of being "excited about gaming" as self serving hype for an about to be released game that probably has a lot of jobs and id existence riding on it.

Carmack literally has "Fuck You" money. He's rich enough to have a hobby of launching rockets into space. Somehow I doubt he's worried about Rage not selling enough and him not being able to put food on the table.

Creston
But id is not just John Carmack, there are other people there. Honestly id has been totally irrelevant for years now. They have still not been able to make a story driven FPS. And their days of success with making the engines that empowered other developers in making story driven FPS have gone down away as well. What will happen to id and all those people who don't launch rockets into space if this game does not do well?

Not to be outdone by AMD, Nvidia releases beta drivers after AMD releases theirs yesterday.

But then again I could be wrong and I may be wrong about their motivations.

In some of the narraged videos I have seen on gametrailers, they have some marketing type spouting on about how Space Marines don't use cover. What a load of shit. This person has never read a 40K book. Space Marines in the fiction, which this game is based on, use cover and ALMOST EVERYONE OF THEM WEARS THEIR FUCKING HELMET.

Nerd-rage over.

So tired of Space Marines and def tired of Warhammer which is goofy at best.
Warhammer or Warhammer 40k? There is a distinction there.

I hope that the game is good on the P.C. considering it's probably going to be a straight console port.

Male chauvenism overlapping with misogeny and sexism all rolled into one. Nice. I am going to assume you were just kidding though.

P.S. I heard good thing about the leaked build, that was supposedly the best demo one could ever ask for. I will get this because of it.
But preordering is for suckers.

If all the "shruggies" (the people who are indifferent and apathetic) wouldn't purchase ubisoft games then they would remove the DRM. Trouble is that ubisoft does the math and turns out that they they win financially more with that DRM. Hence why they have it in for now.

We should not be discouraging devs\publishers from making "different games." Variety is good, even if the game isn't very good, we don't need more of the same, we need variety.

Day 1 purchase through steam for me. I played the shit out of the first one. I played mods, they continued to support the game for a long time. It's an investment kind of game. And the new one costs 40 bucks at release. Which makes the purchase a no brainer for me.

P.S. Blue, the official release date is August 30th. Not next week.
