News Comments > NVIDIA Beta Reference Drivers
3. Re: NVIDIA Beta Reference Drivers Jul 28, 2011, 14:23 Overon
 
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.

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.

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.

I was annoyed by that too at first but eventually you realize that there are wwaaayy more ingredients in the world than you'll ever need. I just stopped collecting them at a certain point.

For sure, although it helps to make sure you have some on hand in case the game decides to use your irreplaceable quest item as an ingredient

I think they fixed that but boy it pissed me off.
You think they fixed that? Do you know for sure? I really want to know.

Yay I can now play fullscreen 16:10! I can now start the game and get past the prologue.

I hope the various awesome mods get updated so they work correctly with 1.3.

Well more services is better for the consumer. This service could be good for people who hate steam and/or Valve. I don't know Dev if that instant playing stuff actually works on Steam, I have never tried it.

You got a major error in that. Steam does not arbitrarily unlock games. They unlock games based on their agreements with publishers. If you think that is arbitrary, then you need to check what that word means.
Stick the word "generally" in there and it would be accurate. In this case, I only need to find one exception to disprove your statement.
Valve games.
Valve arbitrarily unlocks their own games quite often.
Done, thanks.

That doesn't matter at all. To me, as a consumer, it's arbitrary. With non-steamworks games I can play it as soon as I get home. It may not be Steam's fault, but it's something I don't have to deal with if I avoid Steam. Same with region locking.
Not true. GfWL has similar protection available, and I think securom has an option like that too that prevents games from being played before an arbitrarily chosen unlock time.
Good point.

All fine with me, but don't say the unlocks of games on steam are arbitrary. They are not, except for Valve's own titles.

Edited for factual accuracy, thanks Dev.

I did as I said, and every game I tried on steam worked. I call bullshit on anyone who says otherwise.

I have had games tell me before they can't launch in offline mode. I know the original Portal was one, because I tried to play it on vacation in a hotel without internet.

I think they have improved offline mode over time though, and when I moved recently I had no trouble playing anything offline from Steam. My biggest issue with Steam remains the inability to roll back patches.
Just because something didn't work for you in the past, does not mean it won't work for you now, especially if it's software, since software changes over time. Steam used to have few features and now it has more features. If you tried steam 5 years ago and thought sucked, it would be silly to say that it still sucks based on your impressions from 5 years ago. In that 5 year time span, a lot of things improved like offline mode. Software, like life on Earth, changes and adapts, it evolves.

But the geniuses at Valve, in their infinite wisdom, require that you enter offline mode while being online, so I was locked out of all my games. Why the fuck would I ever pay full price for service like that?

If you wait for the connection to the time out then it automatically enters offline mode. This is never explained of course because Steam's UI and documentation was drawn up by five year olds.
BTW, this is easy enough to test. Unplug network cable and run steam. See if you can play your games offline that way. In most cases you should be able to play offline WITHOUT being online to set the mode.
I want to test this. Currently my steam is set to online mode. I will disconnect my network cable, then turn on my PC, launch steam and try a few of my games and report my results here.
I did as I said, and every game I tried on steam worked. I have steam set for automatic login. I simply removed the network cable, turned on my computer, and then ran steam. Steam said it went to offline mode and I tried TF2, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, and Hydrophobia Prophecy. I could start each game and actually load into gameplay. So I didn't bother trying other games I have.

I did as I said, and every game I tried on steam worked. I call bullshit on anyone who says otherwise.
