News Comments > id Happy to be Done with Engine Licensing
5. Re: Evening Consolidation Jun 8, 2011, 21:46 Overon
 
Oh please. Sounds a tad disingenuous considering that the last time someone used their engine was early 2000's?

Nobody is licensing id tech.
2011: We never liked licensing our engines. Now we don't have to. We win.

Really?

P.S. I hope that Rage is good, up to current standards in story driven FPS. I hope id becomes relevant again.

How likely are we to get a Mechwarrior game simulation instead of a first person shooter that is coming to a console? Not bloody likely. How can you have a simulation with a console controller?

News Comments > Consoles Lead Skyrim Development

Blue really knows how to select the stories that inflame the PC fans.

In the videos for the game that I have seen and interviews, they brag about how they have over 100 dungeons. The problem with that is, you have 100 dungeons which are cookie cutter and unmemorable. Bethesda entire approach is quantity over quality. They probably have software that randoly constructs dungeons and fills them with enemies and items. You can't craft 100+ dungeons without one. This is why Bethesdas console centric are rpgs are blah.

After Oblivion, Bethesda is dead to me. They don't make RPG's that I like, but I'm sure they will make boatloads on the consoles anyway.

I couldn't tell which Chaos Space Marine legion was depicted in the video. BUT I DID SEE THEY FUCKING HAD THEIR HELMETS ON.

Maybe the Empire is facing budget cuts.

PUT ON SOME GOD DAMN HELMETS FOR FUCK'S SAKE. In the fiction, space marines wear helmets. Not just for the protection, but for the tactical advantage of the "autosenses" and imaging enhancement displays in the helmet. They aren't stupid like the COGs in Gears of War.

And they use cover, especially the Ultramarines, they fight more tactically.

It always drives me nuts when trailers like this portray one guy who is so powerful everyone else around him shoots at him and they look like they are firing blanks and are totally inept. Aren't these guys part of an organization of criminals? Why would they be hired if they are so inept and how would they get into criminal prominence if they are just cannon fodder?

This reminds me of the prequel star war scene where Anakin is jumping out of windows and onto "air cars". It stretches my suspension of disbelief.

That's a whole lot of nitpicking. While I agree with some of the complaints, they aren't enough to ruin the game.

What the FUCK happened to the PC community. I'm downright a-fucking-shamed when I read these complaints. ANY game -- no, seriously.. ANY! -- can have a list of complaints like these. What are (pc?) gamers a bunch of nitpicking assholes.

Jesus Christ.....
Eldaron some of those are legit. If you have a quest item, and the game uses that quest item to craft a potion, then you've broken a quest. That's one off the top of the head. I would agree with you that some of those complaints are minor.

Well what one say about this? I guess you can't tell what the game progression looks like and what the story is. Also I hope they have proper PC support:
graphics settings
configurable controls

Ahhh...

And this is why I don't mind waiting a couple more months to make my purchase.

I'd say 2 or three more patches should hit the sweet spot. Pleased

What spot, really? Seriously, I wanna know what the hell you guys are really talking about.

I'm not a fanboy (I think). I'm just having no idea what the hell are the issues that breaks this game and not making it worth the 49 bucks you should pay for it...

Maybe CDProject read is working a special delta patch for the steam version. Cause like I said, last patch was 9GB for steam users.

I'm confused, I launched the Witcher 2 launcher and it downloaded patch but the launcher is just sitting there saying "Patcher_1.2 is ready to be installed."

My question is how do install it.


P.S. The 1.1 patch for witcher 2 required steam users to download 9 GB right? How big is this patch for steam users?

P.P.S I hate it when developers assume that everyone runs everything with administrator rights! Some of us are security conscious and we don't run our regular accounts with administrator rights! Just like the first patch, you have to run the Launcher or if you downloaded the patch manually outside of the launcher, you have to run the launcher or manual patch with administrator rights! The damn patching process should prompt you for administrator rights like UAC prompt is designed to do!

I'm surprised that no one has brought this up in this thread yet:

Is this another Daikatana?

The only reason I see anyone downloading the Origin client is if it's the only way to get certain games. Or if they drop the price of a game on their service compared to everyone else. But both things are highly doubtful. I bet they only have differences in preorder DLC.

I would maybe pay $5. Maybe. But, I'm not disappointed. In fact, I feel vindicated. I've been saying all along that it's been in development so long that there is no way it can ever live up to its own legacy.

It doesn't take rocket surgery to figure that one out, but go ahead, pat yourself on the back.

It was fun. Definitely simplistic and feels like an old game, but fun. I don't require all the games I play to feel modern or require 32 cameras to generate facial animation.

Well, I hope busting my balls made your pitiful little existence just a tiny bit brighter. Now get out of my sight, cockroach.
Don't malign the cockroach bub. They are amazing creatures. Read about them and you will agree.

Does this patch have the fullscreen 16:10 aspect ratio fixed? There are black bars on the top and bottom of the screen because of the lack of support for fullscreen 16:10 aspect ratios.

If there is no running over people, resulting in blood and gore and lack of political sensitivity, then it's not carmageddon.

Batman Arkham Asylum was by far the best console port I have played in years.

I even got an xbox360 controller for it even though mouse and keyboard was just fine. I loved it.

I enjoyed Cryis 2 as well even though there were some invisible walls and some consolitis elements in it. But I used Wasdi's utility:

This utility reduced a lot of the consolitis problems.

For the vast majority of end users, even gamers, an onboard sound card is plenty. You really have to have some good quality speakers and headphones to even tell the difference.

Unless of course you happen to have some kind of noise hissing and popping issues, but those can and do occur on addon soundcards as well as onboard soundcards.
