People who say they don't want or use origins crack me up. It's the same thing as steam.


The concept may be similar, but there is a huge gap in functionality between the two. And even if Origin was as good or even better than Steam, I would still be reluctant (to put it mildly) to install it. Face it, EA has not done much to care for or support the PC gaming community, and many of their games and decisions seem greedy and short-sighted.

Steam may be DRM, but it's functional, it's always being improved, has a great selection of games, great sales, a proven track record of reliability, and let's face it, most peoples' games are already on Steam. So why, when Steam already has everything I want, would I install Origins? So I can play such gems as Dragon Age 2, Mass Effect 3, or the Battlefield games? Sorry, none of those games have enough appeal for me to bother.

So you can stop saying that Origins = Steam because your ignorance has been and will continue to be exposed when you do.

If nothing else, EA/Bioware have proven that they are not worthy of my trust - certainly not enough to preorder or buy one of their products before post-day one reviews. Recent debacles aside, I personally found ME2 really underwhelming. Throw Origin in the mix, and that just seals the no deal for me.

Fire the tools who thought that a modern remake of this classic game needed to be dumbed down and made into an RTS.

WTB a new Silent Storm (without robots.)

I played through this again a while back. This link was pretty helpful, although I did find some newer versions of some of the files after some hunting.

Looks interesting. Not "$60 on the first day" interesting, but I'll probably check it out once they've patched it up and wringed out all the DLC.

I will say that HOMM VI makes a great beer coaster while I play the much superior HOMM 3 from GOG.
So, have you tried all the HOMM since HOMM 3 and consider that the best? I haven't tried the last 2 I don't think. I've been wondering if they are even worth trying, especially with at least one of them having crazy ubi drm.

Recently I have been enjoying the Kings Bounty series (latest I think is crossworlds) which gives a HOMM 3 feel, but much improved in many ways.

HOMM3 is still my personal favorite, but 5 is easily the 2nd best IMO. Although I really loved the music in 2.

News Comments > Steamships Ahoy - Dead Island Ryder White DLC

Well to that I'd say that a zombie survival shooter melee horror game with four person co-op, as Dead Island unabashedly touts itself to be, should expect to be compared to L4D, and as such, it fails mightily. Honestly if it wasn't for the inescapably shitty consolitis that pervades every aspect of its gameplay, it would probably be mostly passable. As it is though, it's simply a rather dull game that I cannot not recommend enough.

Yeah I wouldn't bother with this. Some friends and I picked up a 4-pack on a Steam sale and played it exactly one time for probably four hours. The quests feel really cookie cutter and the gameplay and UI elements just reek of consolized laziness.

Basically if you want a good co-op zombie experience, L4D2 is still the game to beat.

I love this series. The first is probably my favorite, and the final encounter in it is one of my all time favorite in any game.

I actually just played through this last year on Win7 x64 and it worked just fine after some minor tweaking.

All this is irrelivant to me anyway, since it's likely require Origin, which means I'll never play it.

This game looks underwhelming to me, but I might have been willing to give it a chance.

But since it's likely to require Origin, I'll never play it even if it does get good reviews. Suck my balls, EA!

Does this patch remove the requirement to always be online and connected to their servers to enjoy all the features of the game?

Until that patch, I will never buy this game. Or any game ever that includes this type of crippling DRM.

I own stalker but haven't played it much more than a couple hours.

Someone posted this link in another thread to Stalker Complete
Its a mod that improves a lot things on the game, mostly graphics.
The description excites me:
It was designed by professional graphic artists with rich experience in the field, following industry standards for creating interactive 3D environments. It features artistic works and modifications from many community members unified under one art direction.
[...]
Natural lighting, vast panoramic views, depth of field, parallax mapping, SSAO, over 900 reworked texture files, including vehicles and armor suites with manual bump editing, you won't believe it's the same game.
And thats just part of the stuff listed.

I'm thinking of using that for my first time playthrough.

Definitely use the Complete mod, even for your first playthrough. Aside from improving the graphics, it addresses a lot of bugs, localization issues, and general annoyances present in the vanilla version, without altering anything that impacts the spirit of the game. To me, it elevates it from flawed gem to near perfection.

Clear Sky was disappointing, Pripyat was great, but the original will always be in my top 10.

Prez wrote on Jan 8, 2012, 20:05:
I'm getting a little tired of previews that make excuses for the removal of the turn-based combat in Jagged Alliance. I don't care if it works well; this is not a goddamned remake if such a profound fundamental change is made to the gameplay ( I'd go so far as to say it isn't even JA at all without turn-based play). I loved Fallout 3 but to call it a "remake" of Fallout would be erroneous and asinine. Call me anal, but this shit pisses me off.

I have to agree with you. Fallout Tactics proved that it's possible to make this type of game and give the player the option to choose between true turn based or real time with pause. Don't see why they can't do the same thing here. I am interested in this though, so I'm reserving judgment until they post some gameplay vids so people can see for themselves how it plays out.
