News Comments > Elveon to be Unreal

I don't know, I like Unreal Tournament 2004. No reason you can't bitch about the game, that's fine, but don't pass your opinion off as gospel law.

There's always TES IV: Oblivion to hold you over until Gothic 3 comes out.

Yep early this year everyone was jumping on the "cell processors is a super-computer" bandwagon. But really the verdict is still out on the cell processor. No one really knows what the real world performance will finally be like. Maybe early next year when the dev kits with the cell processors start making their rounds, people will have a better idea about the thing.

Wow, the game looks awesome, too bad their website looks like a three year old built it.

News Comments > F.E.A.R. SP Demo
194. No subject Aug 7, 2005, 00:17 nightfend
 
I checked on the FEAR game site, and the official requirments for the game are much lower than the original poster mentioned.

"F.E.A.R. System Requirements Announced
8.2.05
The final system requirements for F.E.A.R. have been announced:

MINIMUM SYSTEM REQUIRED
· Windows® XP or 2000 with latest service pack installed
· DirectX® 9.0c (April Edition) (included)
· Pentium® 4 1.7 GHz or equivalent processor
· 512 MB of RAM
· 64 MB GeForce™ 4 Ti or ATI® Radeon® 9600 or equivalent with hardware T&L and pixel shader support
· 5.0 GB free Hard Drive Space for installation
· 4x CD-ROM drive (for Director's Edition, this will have to be DVD-ROM)
· 16-bit DirectX® 9.0 compliant sound card with support for EAX™ 2.0
· Internet Connection Required
· Mouse
· Keyboard"

But it does sound like they are having issues with users of ATI graphics cards, as everyone mentioning slow downs seems to have the ATI GPUs...

ALSO, note that an internet connection is REQUIRED!!! Sounds like another Steam delivery system for the final game.

Well I read all the comments on these forums last night, and was SURE that my machine would have problems as I only have a 6600GT. It turns out I was wrong, the game ran great. I was able to play at 1024x768 with no framerate problems, and the settings were on maximum including soft shadows.
I did have a stuttering sound issue until I toggled on EAX 2.0, then it stopped.
I have an Athlon 64 3400+, so maybe the CPU is more important than anything else in determining a good framerate for this game.

BTW - Loved the big armored soldiers, and the slow motion effects when you hit the CTRL key. Too bad the demo is so short. Definitely going to buy this game though.

Yes, because to be an RPG you have to level up, do quests and collect a bunch of shit. Your idea of an RPG is pretty limited.

Uh, yeah, that's pretty much what the game industry considers an RPG. YOU might consider RPGs something else, but that's your whacked out description.

You are making the assumption it's an RPG. Nowhere in the press release does it say your character has to level, collect gear, or do quests.

I'm confused by some peoples comments on this game. I thought it was an RTS as well. So why is it being compared to Icewind Dale and Dungeon Siege???

I guess this could end up being good, but I don't hold out a lot of hope. I can't figure out why they won't just do a real first-person RPG game.

News Comments > PC Gauntlet Thrown Down
23. No subject Aug 4, 2005, 14:25 nightfend
 
Gauntlet Dark Legacy, the last big Gauntlet game that was released on all the major consoles was a fun over-the-top action game. It was fun when you had three other friends over and just wanted to have some mindless action.

Unfortunately this newer Gauntlet tried to be serious and tried to straddle the line between referencing the original Gauntlet game and making a modern action RPG. I played the demo for quite a while at E3 this year, and it just wasn't a whole lot of fun. They tried to add a ton of fighting move combos to the game, but instead of this improving the gameplay, it just complicated and slow the game down. Sometimes simplicity is best.

Yeah, Interplay doesn't really exist anymore. They laid off all their staff awhile back.

I'd have more faith in D&D Online if it had different developers. Now, as always you have to take E3 demos with a grain of salt as they are early previews, but I wasn't really that impressed when I saw it demo'd by Turbine. I didn't see anything revolutionary about the game at the time, though all the action I saw took place around a small town.

I agree on both Middle Earth Online and D&D Online. They are either vaporware or if they do get released will fail badly.

Then again, I was surprised at how well Guild Wars did (probably the "free" gameplay had something to do with it). No accounting for the average players bad tastes in gaming.

I'd rather play a mediocre First person shooter, than play the really lame Katamari game where you roll around collecting garbage. Uh, now that's real fun.

Everyone has pretty much summed up my thoughts on this game, which is "I'd rather play a Hannibal the Cannibal game than a Roman invasion action game."
