Vehicles are very powerfull even in online mode, much more powerfull then say a tank in BF1942, because you have multiple shots that insta kill and have a large blast radius, you can kill 10-20 troops in a matter of seconds.

Publishers are the core of 90% of PC game problems, unfortunatly online dist. cant replace the actual product that you buy in the store, because alot of people just want the box and pyshical copy.

I doubt the courts are going to force valve to make their next game with sierra, that would be absurb, so we can probably assume that after HL2 Valve is done with Sierra, and we can count that as a win for consumers.

Unless of course they decide to sign up with EA or something

Yeah I enjoyed the hell outa Stress, I played a rogue up to level 24 and cant wait to start up on final. I would be willing to pay blizz 15/month just to play beta, its more polished at this stage then any other MMORPG I've seen, and its still in beta!

They probably want to get it going because alot of people thought FP was signup and play immediatly, thats basically what it said on the website, those people are now pissed on alot of forums.

Thats kinda shady, release a gold pack but no seperate expansion release?

I say go get it for free if you want, they try to fuck you over so fuck them over.

I played SWG free trial, wow that game is stale in comparison to other MMO's, even UO beats that and that games so old. I ran around this huge city that felt so empty, then went out on my speeder bike and roamed the land...that land is empty and ugly...you come to player owned cities once in awhile but those are all abandoned anyways. It just screamed unpolished...and its been out for how long?

I entered a cantina and saw about 5 players begging others to watch them perform, wow that looked hella fun, sit around hitting a button and hope others "watch" you for exp. Nobody was watching them, and nobody seemed to give a shit.

Of course nobody listened to a thing I asked, I even started spamming in caps and nobody cared, it was like I was in another dimension or something, either that or the players in that game have learned to just ignore one another and set up macro's to do all their talking (which is what I saw most of the time)...what a game!

Oh come on people, learn to translate...this simply means that if STALKER does sell well, and they earn a big profit, they will make an expansion to it, and add co-op in that.

Half Life 2 does have Bump Mapping, but it isnt as pronounced or as dependant as Doom 3 is on them. Have you tried turning off Bump Mapping and Specular in Doom 3? The textures are crap, they look like 8bit color mud.

Exactly, and most people dont seem to understand this. Its all an illusion in Doom 3, provided by the excessive use of bumpmapping, normalmapping, and lighting. The textures themselves are very poor, and are masked by these new technologys that "cover them up" so to speak.

Half-life 2's graphics might not look as good, but they are genuine, the textures are crisp and detailed, and the dev's put alot more work into them then Doom 3. I have no CLUE how hard it is to turn a bland texture into something great by use of Doom3's bump mapping and normal mapping, but I'm willing to guess its a easy way out of actually creating the detailed textures, and requires less work.

Lets say I buy a coupon on ebay for the 30 or so bucks, I can get HL2 download when it comes out, and still play this in beta, am I correct in saying this?

Seems like a win-win situation...

Really? I briefly played the open beta because my system at the time couldn't handle it. So, I never really got to check the game out. What would it be like for a total newbie to start now? Is everyone just way too advanced, therefore leaving me noone to group with? Do I even need to group?

This is AC1, a much better game then AC2 ever was.

If you have heat problems, this game will let you know.

This game is very sensitive to artifacting when your card overheats, or even gets high on the temp scale.

This might be ATI exclusive though, as I'm running a AIW9800Pro.

The only problem with this game is that I've played through about 12 levels so far and its all still exactly the same as level 1.

Nothing has changed except the monsters and guns. The levels are practically exact replicas of everything else.

And Btw, on graphics, bump-mapping is a great technology, but it lacks substance close up, you can tell the whole thing is just an illusion of depth.

This is the problem with games that use it excessively.


Edit: Of depth not or depth :/
