News Comments > Jagged Alliance: Flashback Funded

Yeah that is not Jagged Alliance. If you played whatever they have made (I don't bother keeping track) after JA2 you are playing an entirely different series.

They are basing this kickstarter on JA2, so if you didn't play that you missed out on the whole point of this kickstarter

Not so sure about this team based on their previous games (Frontline Tactics looked horrible) and what they are currently working on (Space Hulk?) - but their goal for JA:F is spot on so hopefully they pull this off.

News Comments > MS's PC Gaming Disregard to Continue

I don't care if they stop developing games for the PC, they did have some good releases before Xbox came out but Windows gaming can survive easily enough without their contributions.

I just wish they would stop creating half-assed implementations like "Games for Windows Live" so developers can actually implement their own systems instead of tacking that bloatware trash on top and calling their multiplayer component complete. It's already ruined GTA4 and Dark Souls multiplayer, they need to stop spreading their gaming diseases to other titles.

News Comments > Dark Souls PC "Half-Assed" - PC Prioritized for Sequel
83. Re: Dark Souls PC Apr 13, 2013, 13:40 D4rkKnight
 
You are forgetting that those "horrible" graphics are directly brought from the consoles and that the only true platform that shows the work these graphics artists put into their world is the PC with dsfix installed.

The amount of detail they put into the world that is lost in the muddy graphics of PS3/Xbox360 is actually very sad - I could never play another Souls game on consoles after seeing the transition that dsfix brought to the game.

I want to make sure we are all on the same page here, if you have not installed dsfix and are commenting on the games graphics - please stop and click here for simple comparison shots.

Basically they will just take the existing fixes from dsfix and dsmousefix and implement them into the next game. Works for me - if you did not apply those fixes and still complain about the DS port, you probably should stick to consoles.

False positives AVG - I wonder who payed them to release this statistically incorrect information.

JA2 with 1.13 mod is an amazing game with an impressive arsenal of weaponry. If you think all JA games were bad you clearly never played the series. Regardless of gameplay preferences, it is clear the game was phenomenal whether you enjoyed it or not.

They also fixed it fairly quickly, gave everyone affected a free game for their trouble, and apologized. In the end, all anyone had happen to them was that they couldn't play a game for a little while.

You think they "fixed" Simcity?

They are still "Looking into it"? I'm kinda surprised it's not already deep in development - seems the natural next step besides making a full blown sequel.

Since when are people paying $40 to play an Alpha game? Am I missing something here? People bitch about paying for a game that 'might as well be Beta'. Now everyones forking over $40 for an ALPHA GAME?

It's $33. It's a pre-order for ARMA III and the price goes up on release. I wish more companies did stuff like that.

What also sucks is that they are now spending all of their time fixing these server issues when they should (and would if it wasnt online only) be patching the simulation issues. It could be awhile before this game plays like it should - let alone WORKS.

Simcity 4 had simulation problems as well. Hence the Rush Hour expansion to address this. These I understand and expect to be addressed in patches and expansions. I just hope this whole fiasco convinces EA to treat this game as more then a money pot. Please Maxis, fix your game.

There is only one way they can guarantee a purchase from me and many others at this point:

  • True offline mode

  • Larger regions

  • Changes to game play to fully accommodate the single player mode


  • At this point, simply allowing offline play and local city saves will not fix this game - the game play punishes you for playing alone and needs serious redesign to be complete. For instance, time frozen regions.

    If they can accomplish that and of course make it a free patch, I will buy it.

    Voice acting every line of dialogue gets you Skyrim - an action rpg. When you pay for every spoken word you cut down the content to a bare minimum. Thank god for text-based RPG's.

    PST is far and away the best RPG and one of the greatest all-time video games ever made.
    Which reminds me, I don't think I ever played that game all the way through.
    I need to go dig that up.

    GoG link if anyone needs:
    http://www.gog.com/gamecard/planescape_torment
    I seem to recall some mods and info being posted in another blues thread, stuff like how to get the game higher res. I'll have to see if I can find that.
    Edit: Unless I'm remembering some other game.

    GOG Forums almost always have all the info you need for mods, in this case it looks like they made a special news update for it specifically:

    They designed the game around smaller cities. To increase it at this point throws their nice little "city in a box" design out the window. Now they are stuck in a position where they need to ensure fans they care so they claim its purely a hardware restriction that prevents them from adding this feature. It gives the fans the illusion that this will be patched quickly after release so they should rush out and buy it.
