News Comments > Broken Sword Free on GOG.com
5. Re: Broken Sword Free on GOG.com Sep 29, 2011, 23:39 D4rkKnight
 
Because of the overloaded servers, I seem to have ended up with 3 copies of the game in my "owned games" collection on gog. Well at least it'll come in handy in case I lose one.

This happens more often then you think, for instance, I lost my copy of Diablo 3 beta...Blizzard?

I loved what little GTAIV multiplayer I played. The cops n crooks game mode was a blast but it was hard to find people to play.

No dedicated servers and you could edit the weapon config files to change bullets into rockets and fire 10 rockets/second out of your assault rifle...then came god mode and teleport cheats which they did nothing to stop, it died fast.

Eh, any game that starts with rape references kind of gets blacklisted by me, but hey: if that's your thing, go for it!


It was never a rape reference...

They should start listing this on retail PC games as a feature.

*Spectacular Graphics!
*Exciting Combat!
*No GFWL implementation!

It requires a strong processor actually, if you don't have one and get decently far into fortress building it will slow your machine to a crawl and you will be unable to continue.

Elder Scrolls games never get a demo.

Daggerfall had a demo. You got to play on one tiny island separated from the mainland.

Forgive me if this picture of games future does not interest me. This is the reason Simcity 5 was never made, it was too "focused". So instead, we need to dilute the formula and make it accessible to everyone.

This makes me certain that the outlook for a true successor to Simcity 4 is very bleak. I am not against games like Spore and The Sims, but the draw of a larger audience has killed his most intelligent and rewarding simulation.

finding a proper ISO, making sure it's virus-free

This doesn't happen often with games actually. Applications can be riddled with viruses I will give you that, but somehow game releases, even poor ones like torrents, rarely contain a virus. False positives from cracks/keygens are a dime a dozen however.

Sad, sad, sad. Crysis 2 went from a day one purchase to a day never purchase for me. And though I meant to, I never even downloaded the leak. Just didn't feel like it was even worth that.

Doesn't matter, the absence of your sale is clearly caused by piracy.

Crytek only makes perfect games, so obviously if it sells bad it is because of piracy.

I wouldn't expect Crysis 3 to hit PC at all.

I hope so too, we are long overdue for a sequel worthy of SH1 and Crusader. At least the screenshots look good

I wouldn't say its less complex, just better organized. They achieved that with Empire/Napolean and it carries over here.

It certainly hasn't gotten any shorter though, you can finish a game in 6 hours if you lose at the 6 hour mark

Maybe its just me but this game looks exactly the same as IL2-Sturmovik...they just added a layer of flair on top of an old graphics engine. Meh...I love flight sims and IL2 was the best of them but after like 5 expansions I can't get excited about another rehash.

Wait, which RPGs are Blizzard known for?

EA thinks Dragon Age 2 is an RPG, therein lies the problem. By their standards, Call of Duty is one of the deepest most complex RPG's ever released.

If it wasn't specifically in the TOS, or, Steam was the only way a person could buy games anymore, this would be news.

If you don't like the way Steam operates, don't buy games from Steam. Simple concept. Expensive lesson? Perhaps. I don't feel bad for them in the least though - play by the rules or accept the consequences if you get caught doing otherwise.

This isn't news. Plain and simple.

Unfortunately for quite a few games, steam IS the only way you can buy the game. Even if you buy it at a retail store, it only activates and works on steam.

Irony is such an interesting thing.

If there are bugs in an EA released game, gamers will say "Of course there's bugs, EA can't release a game without bugs. They don't quality test worth a damn!"

Yet when EA says their website software had a bug in it, all of a sudden to these same gamers, it's inconcievable that EA's programmers could have made a mistake, or that the positively thorough testing that EA puts their software through didn't catch it.

Yes, it must be EA lying to hide their nefarious plots and couldn't possibly be related to ineptitude or lack of Design or QA attention.

Gamers are losing control of the products they purchase, this was not about a bug, its about the company stance. EA and Bioware defended this position, to them this is entirely expected and normal. Arguing with them is not going to change that, hurting their reputation and damaging their sales will.
