And people wonder why not having publicly available dedicated servers is bad.

When a developer posts on twitter about a demo, you have to ask whether they mean PC, you know they mean consoles, but you don't know if that also includes the PC.
When a developer posts ANYWHERE about a demo and does not specifically mention PC you have to assume its not included.

I would rather be proven wrong then get my hopes up and then have them dashed.

Do you seriously need to play a demo first of this game to actually know that this is a great game? No demo is required to know that this game kicks butt and is worth every penny, and btw, this game is on sale for the next 2 hrs too.

I need demos for all the games since I'm on a laptop, and performance is a real gamble with most games. I downloaded Witcher 2, ran like ass no matter what settings, deleted it.
I remember doing this back when I had a crappier job and unable to do regular upgrades. Problem was a lot of games were "beta" not demos. I remember I could run the Q3Test with no issues but once the final came out it ran like piss.

As others have mentioned, you don't necessarily need mod tools in order to mod a game. Mod tools just make it a lot easier. Dead Rising 2 had mods. RE4 had mods. Tomb Raider: Underworld had mods. STALKER had mods. Fallout 1&2 had mods. Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines had mods. GTA4 had mods. Carmageddon had mods.

I can keep going but hopefully you get the point.
But you DO need released dedicated servers. If your only able to lease dedicated servers any mod tools are moot. Unless the gaming community makes that too.

And your examples just drive that point home. Most of the games you listed are single player for the most part. Anyone can mod those.

Crysis kicked ass. I could've done without the corny Korean shouting and that part where you float around the alien stronghold goes on pretty long, but overall that game was great. Haven't played Crysis 2 or Warhead yet.
Warhead == Crysis with less floaty alien bullshit. There are still alien's but a lot less.

Crysis 2 is just shit.

So is the font in Eve still super tiny and not adjustable? My monitor's native resolution is 2048x1152 and Eve is unplayable without adjustable font sizes...playing at butt-ugly 1024x768 or something just isn't a solution. Maybe they have some DLC fonts now lol
A horrible problem with many games. I remember running 1600x1200 on my 21" Sony G500 when the average resolution at the time was 1024x768. God it sucked with a mess of games trying to read text.

Seams its happening all over again. Id cry consolitious if it was any other game.

Discuss the move here!

I love the fact that only 13 people have cared enough to post there.
Or more people have with colorful replies and MS didn't like them so they were deleted.

Free is kind of a odd term here. I guess by Free they mean you can download the SDK without getting a game now.

I recall all the bitching and complaining that STEAM got when it was released and was required to play Valve's games and then others...but now most prefer to have it as an option when buying a new game...
The thing is Valve was actively fixing the issues with Steam and turned it into something fantastic. MS has done nothing. Game after game that uses this system has loads of old issues plus a ton of new ones.

I still shudder when I think about Fallout 3 DLC how EVERY SINGLE DLC release had some major issues with it. Whats that? You installed your game on a drive other than C:? TOUGH!

Support for wider than 16x9 aspect ratio displays has been added to support users with non-standard display devices and spanned multi-monitor displays like AMD Eyefinity and NVIDIA Surround.
Does this mean there is proper 16:10 and 4:3 support in the game now?

I thought BioWare has done a great job in taking Paragon/Renegade away from that direction. Although, I do think ME2 made a mistake in requiring you to go almost all Paragon or all Renegade in order to keep your crew alive in ME2, though.
Depends on what you did. You only needed to go full in one direction or the other if you "screwed up" earlier interactions with your crew. Specifically the loyalty missions. IF you were full P or R you got a 'get out of jail free' card to force save them.

Firs play through I saved everyone and was far from full Paragon or Renegade.
