News Comments > GOG.com: "Your customers hate DRM"
30. Re: GOG.com: Nov 13, 2011, 12:59 Noctis
 
I agree! I hate it so much I don't even buy steam games. No Skyrim for me. There are plenty of other games out there that I can play instead.

I was excited for this until they decide to use Steam.

News Comments > PC Dragon Age Has Top-Down Camera
24. Re: PC Dragon Age Has Top-Down Camera Oct 17, 2009, 06:07 Noctis
 
I think this was the first thing I checked to see was in when I heard about this game. Tt's good to see that it wasn't sacrificed. It's one of the best, if not the best, features for tactical combat. Even if it wasn't memory related, I could see how a top down view on a tv would be less desirable just based on the distances one generally sits away from a computer monitor vs a tv.

News Comments > Dragon Age: Origins Day One DLC Plans

Why wouldn't they include this with the rest of the game? Sound's like B.S. to me.

BioWare has a dedicated team working on DLC. Why wasn't it included in the main game? Because the content wasn't nearly complete by the time the main game was locked and into QA, certification and manufacturing. The main game and Warden's Keep are in different stages of development and there is no way that WK could be released with the main game at this stage.

There is a long held belief that main game content is being removed and sold separately. This is not the case. The content is being developed in parallel by a dedicated team.

None of our DLC is required to enjoy Dragon Age: Origins, but we hope you will give some of it a try or at least arm yourself with reviews from trusted sources (whether it's Gamespot or your Uncle Ray) and make your own decision.

Derek,

I am aware of the parallel team and know that it wouldn't have been included on disk. I am also aware that Warden's Keep is being used as a bargaining chip to sell the Dragon Age: Origins Digital Deluxe Edition. There is simply no reason that they couldn't have included a download code for everyone that pre-ordered. I understand it's away to leverage the download edition. However, no matter the amount of flowers you try to shovel onto it, everyone will still feel screwed by this. That is of course, other than the download users.

I'm sorry I still value ownership of my games. My psyche tells me to cancel my pre-order edition and wait to see if there will be a game of the year edition with this include to get the most value out of my purchase. This of course will also be when it's around 30$ and saves me quite a bit of money. Also, I am a person that doesn't buy downloadable content ever, so if it's not included with the boxed edition, then I won't buy it. I see what companies are trying to do. De-value ownership and I don't like it. I don't want to imagine the day when you need to pay a subscription fee to play a single player game.

Delays are generally good for games. I have no complaints. It just shows that they care.

3. Mass Effect Two-Disc Edition Jan 18, 2009, 15:54 Noctis
 
I never played the original Mass Effect because of the DRM that was included. I also heard they didn't make the controls PC friendly. I would buy it if there was no DRM in it.

This is garbage. The average age of a gamer is over 18. Let the adult gamers decide what they want to play. How adult titles are handle are basically censorship because no body carries them due to only sex games got the AO rating. It's not our fault that they don't want to be a parent and monitor their children or don't read the label before they buy a game.

I will have to agree with some of you guys. I loved the earlier games and didn't touch the later ones. It's lame that couldn't just come up with a new one. It sucks that they will be getting a cash flow for this. I would hope that they had the forethought combine it all to make one menu or something. At least put some work into it is all I am saying.

I am suprised the screenshots look pretty decent. I immediately thought, without reading anything, "This is probably better than MOO3!".

I played the demo. I found it addicting. I played Aftermath before but I didn't what what I was doing and always died quickly. Aftershock is sweet.

After B&W 1, no I will not buy this game. Molyneux spoke after the game was done horribly and B&W2 was just announced. He said that there was so much stuff that they should have left in. Therefore I don't trust his abilities anymore. If you should have left it in, you shouldn't have hyped up B&W and released crap. I play all kinds of games, so I am not biased by type.
