1. Black PS3 Aug 29, 2006, 13:02 GTAZ
 
Since when is that a rumor , it's been a known fact since E3 2006 that they said they will only launch PS3 in black, and bring other colors out after the system has been out for a while. Read this in numerous articles and interviews with Sony reps.

1. Suck Jun 22, 2006, 20:55 GTAZ
 
This demo does not represent the final product.

That's what is says before it loads up... Then don't release the demo cause the demo sucks.. I played the original MM back in their day and it was fun back then. The camera just does not justify this game at all.. I can't control my car when i can't see 2 feet in front of me as it zooms out to show all cars on screen. Deleted after 3 tries.

First of all let restate that I WANT DUKE more then some native american to kick some alien ass.

K.. now that that is out of the way.

This demo impressed me alot.. and it takes alot to impress me. I liked the whole portal/walking on walls/leaving my dead body to spirit walk. It's all done well and I can see some pretty decent challenges making it all work. The game ran actually better then Doom 3 for me (2500 xp/2gb ram/7800 GT) of course I had only 1 gb and a 6800 ultra back then.

The multiplayer was amusing but nothing compared to the likes of BF2, which I totally enjoy for my online playing. DM is only so much fun, and it died for me back in the Unreal/Quake days.

The effects and level design are all top notch, much like doom3, and the gameplay keeps making me want to go forward, unlike doom3. For such a small demo, finished it in under 30 min, it was fairly easy, but definately interesting and makes me want more. Game is on my must buy list now.

Still... Duke is what I really want. I'm all out of gum!

Wow.. it amazes me how many morons there actually are here. You bitch about Price and Blu-ray when you only think of the smaller scope of things.

Blu-ray technology for the PS3 doesn't mean you HAVE to watch movies at HD quality. You can still use your DVD's you have now, or plan to buy down the road. The fact that the medium can store up to 50 GBs of data is a no brainer when it comes to making games for the system that a normal 4.7 gb dvd can't hold. Remember the PC game bitching about swapping disks when they can fit it all on one DVD. Well I would sooner have more stuff included on my disk then having them cut stuff to fit it on a single dvd, or multiple dvds. Blu-ray isn't just for movies for the ps3, and how many of us really buy a console to watch movies anyways.

2ng of all the Price point. 499 dollars for the 20, 599 for the 60... and gaming online is free.. No monthly fees, ala Xbox Live. The system alone is worth 100 bucks more to me for that reason alone... the money saved will more then make up for the xtra money spent.

The games look amazing, better then anything Xbox 360 has to offer, and I'm looking much forward to having one.

Way to go SONY.. You will have a winner. Rumble features are lame anyways..

77. 10 hours is NOT long enough! Sep 16, 2005, 21:42 GTAZ
 
Let me get this out of the way first, If you think that a game you pay over 50 bucks for is worth it and it lasts less then 15 hours, then you should go play console games cause they are plentiful. My pc investment cost me over 2 grand, I would like my games to make my investment worth the effort I put into it. Most ppl that have pc's capable of playing a game as mediocre as FEAR have invested lots of money into it, so 10 hours of gameplay would last 1 day with most of us. And the MP will be as successful as Farcry's, which is minimal at the least, and Farcry lasted longer then 10 hours(as well as 100x better looking). If this game requires an online authentication to play it, I bet 90% of the people on here will be passing it up. And for one, I hope this game fails miserably because 10 hours of gameplay with such high system requirements definately deserves failure. Bargain Bin material in 3 months, might pick it up then

23. BE AWARE Aug 9, 2005, 19:32 GTAZ
 
After uninstalling game, REinstalling, verifying the game works, then patching, and now it doesnt I did some reading. One of the reasons they state is that My DVD rom may not be compatible with their security check. The game works fine unpatched with the DVD in the drive, and doesn't work patched with the DVD in the drive.. It's not my Drive, it's their F'N patch. Move along, stupid idiots.. it's all their fault for leaving this crap in the original anyways, and if it weren't such a fn good game, I would delete it instantly. Bring on the no cd 1.01 so I can play it please.

17. Original disk not found? Aug 9, 2005, 18:54 GTAZ
 
Ok, I never cared for this Hot Coffee mod, and think it has been blown way out of proportion.. After all , the game was rated Mature... a little bit of animated love making and its all the sudden a bad game..

I installed this patch to an unmodified version of GTA SA and went to start it up... this error message i got...

The Original disk can not be found or Authenticated.

WTF.. The Original Disk is in my DVD drive where it was when I was playing it an hour before installing this stupid fn patch.

Thanks R*, now I have to reinstall the game with the bugs, may as well throw in the Hot Coffee mod too since I can't upgrade.

Being a gamer for longer then most ppl on this board, I know games. I have played more games then I can imagine, and will play more then I should when I retire. This game, being a high profile game that it is, is far below my expectations in something that requires a top of the line system to run at maximum settings. If you honestly think that in this day and age, that the physics and AI in this game are insurpassable and that they are above and beyond anything ever done, then you haven't played enough games my friends. I have seen console games, namely Xbox games (Halo/Chronicles of Riddick/SC Chaos Theory), that maybe this game lives up too.. but as for PC games, this is not near the quality we are capable of in high end systems. Half Life2 and Doom3 were better quality and ran better and smoother. Chaos Theory looked better on the PC then this game does and runs smoother. The AI in FarCry was better then in this game. If your happy with the way this game runs and looks on your mid to high end PC, then Monolith and Sierra will be happy as pigshit because now they can make mediocre games for your kind. Me, I want to know what I can look forward to if I am gonna move on in gaming.. show me the quality of the games that the high end systems are capable of without the overly glossy bumpmapped textures.

69. PLUGGERS Aug 5, 2005, 15:53 GTAZ
 
Please... stop plugging this game.. Firstly, you can say all you want on how 'great' the game looks, but I have seen much better in games that require less of a system... Poorly done physics and AI as well as sloppy texturing in spots can not save this game. And on a side note, trying to get to the end of the demo, the dang thing hard crashed my PC, maybe detecting that I was not impressed and just throwing fuel on the fire for me to hate it more. Delete, bring on a Stalker demo now please.

58. Re: Nice demo Aug 5, 2005, 15:26 GTAZ
 
Top notch graphics, sound effects and combat???? You work for Monolith?

Graphics are ok.. but not top notch... sound effects are poor and combat is lamer then anything I've seen in a FPS as of late.

Here are some of my gripes about the game... Firstly, recommended settings for my computer make it chug... AMD 3200+/1gb DDR400/GF 6800 GT... have to turn it down to make it run half decent...

Secondly, physics are worse then ever in this game.. Jump on a barrell, shoot it, ram it.. won't budge... blow up a grenade and it flies like it was a beach ball..

Shooting glass out physics are horrible.. since when do you have glass fly out at you from shooting it, as if you were shooting it on the otherside with a rocket launcher.

AI is by far sloppier then most games of late.. although them falling down from being shot is fresh and welcome, I would like to see them get more involved in whats going on..

Can't recommend this game to anyone... binding keys for ladders, please... and slowmo? Wth is this, a console game?

Demo Deleted... I'll buy it when it hits the bargain bin 3 months after its release.

59. WTF Aug 3, 2005, 20:13 GTAZ
 
As of right now , Fileplanet ratings for this game have soared to almost 900 ppl, with an 5 out of 5 star rating.. Who at MicroSoft is plugging this, because this game is in no way that good. Firstly, 900 ppl? Come on.. The same amount of ppl approximately downloaded the SS2 footage.. and only 11 ppl voted on it. Secondly, 900 ppl with highspeed as myself that actually love the game, had the time to vote on it? I voted 2/5... cause it's amusing and I played it for about 20 minutes.

Pros: Great game, 5 years ago.
Cons: Crap Graphics, mediocre gameplay, zero replayability, lips dont even move during dialogue, poor camera angles, lame combat, and overdone hack and slash that Diablo did better. Dungeon Siege 2 should be in a bargain bin soon.

13. Change the Politicians, Not the Ratings Jul 20, 2005, 22:09 GTAZ
 
OK.. let me get this right... Blowing off peoples heads, killing cops, pimping ho's, selling drugs, gambling, stealing, blowing up everything you can with the hunter, going to strip clubs to watch semi nude dances, swearing and crashing planes into traffic is enough to get a M rating... throw in a little bit of clothed sexual acts and all the sudden its an AO game? Only in the good old USA is it ok to show death and destruction, but wrong to see anyone do the nasty, even with chothes on. Who really are the Terrorists in the world?

3. Burnout 3 PC ! Jun 30, 2005, 22:24 GTAZ
 
Only game I really interested in that is out for the Xbox that I can't play on my PC is Burnout 3.. and probably the next one too.

Other then that.. the next box, the 360, will blow away my PC.. 3 3.2 ghz cores backed by a state of the art ATI graphics cards.. All for under 500 bucks (400 is what I heard). Why the HELL can't they make a custom PC running at 3.2 ghz with a current gen video card for around that price ???? Stupid AMD/Intel Nvidia/Ati Console/PC Wars.. Can't we all just get along !

1. Expansion? Sep 16, 2004, 19:49 GTAZ
 
I sold COD long ago, after all the Multiplayer portion of the game sucked @ss, and now they come out with an expansion that requires the original. If they can make a demo that doesnt require COD, why can't they make this sequel not require it also? I won't buy it for the simple fact, I no longer have COD and won't be buying both to play what has been said being a short single player experience. The demo was amusing, but the AI at times didnt cover fire that well and I ended up getting killed by someone behind me when I thought my back was being covered.

11. Re: No subject Sep 16, 2004, 19:44 GTAZ
 
... as boring as the original.

You moron, HalfLife was probably the single best FPS that ever graced the PC in it's time. It had a great story, intense action, cool scripted events, and was voted best PC game of all time many times by almost every publisher and gamer.

If you found HalfLife 1 to be boring, then you are in the wrong genre buddy, because it doesn't get much more exciting then that since it was released. FarCry coming the closest so far, almost 6 years later.

25. Retail or Online Sep 11, 2004, 12:11 GTAZ
 
Here is the dilema facing online purchases over buying the game at the store.

Pros:

1. Game is guaranteed to be there, while stores might run out of copies before you get there, or are all presold and you will have to wait for next shipment.

2. Lazy couch/chair people who would rather be playing then shopping love the idea.

3. Redownload if HD gets destroyed once new harddrive is installed, can't do that with a hard copy of a cd if it's destroyed unless you back it up, which most (not all) don't know how to do.

4. Being able to get it first, before most stores worldwide. America gets games way before most other countries, and some people never see them for over a month after their initial release depending on their location.

5. Cheaper then EB. Electronic Boutique has to be the biggest conartists when it comes to games. I have seen games up to $15 more then the same game at WalMart or BestBuy. And their used games are sometimes even more then a new copy at Walmart (this is my EB plug for ripping me off for the last time for Burnout 3 :))

Cons:

1. No Manual. While most games have online manuals, a copy of it while you are actually in game is always a good thing. (Although, not a big deal for FPS, as if you don't know the controls by now, you're not a gamer).

2. Walmart is cheaper. 39.99 American, that's how much I would have paid for Condition Zero over steam... 39.95 Canadian (@ 32.00 American) that's how much I paid at Walmart for it the next day.

3. Hard Copy, avoids long redownloads if you ever have to wipe your computer clean, probably the biggest selling point for most people.

While I will no doubt buy a retail version of HalfLife2, I also plan on getting it over Steam. I have 2 computers capable of playing HalfLife2, so I will need 2 different cdkeys for online play, retail and steam, while both will be downloaded via steam.

Just hope they give us a better deal then the CS:CZ one.
