News Comments > The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection Free for All

It's going to take more than fucking Sims 2 for me to want to reinstall Origin, rest assured of that one.

News Comments > Rebellion "Could" Return to AvP Series
9. Re: Rebellion Jul 11, 2014, 04:31 Ventura
 
Weren't Rebellion forced to rush that most recent AvP game of theirs?

I know it wasn't well received, but I quite liked it. I enjoyed playing as the Predator and the Marine, at any rate.

Long story short, I have played far worse games, and, to be honest, I would welcome another AvP title from them.

I actually like the new Total Recall movie better than the old Schwarzenegger one.

There aren't many of you running around mate, that's for damn sure.

As for Predator, I'm all for more, regardless, cause they're just such a kickarse species. That said, I'd rather Aliens vs Predator, to be honest. That one's never been done right, not even close, and I think it's fair to say the potential's off the charts.

News Comments > Elite: Dangerous E3 Trailer

The final released version will be $50 I believe.

Standard beta, which gets you access to what they say is the final beta stage of development before release, is listed on their website at 50 pounds, and the release version is 35 pounds.

I could see me springing for that 50 pounds. 100 is just too much to drop right now, but there can be no denying how good this looks.

When this game drops to $50 or $60 or so, I'm so in. Elite was by far the best game on my old c64, and this looks very faithful to that.

Torment 4 grinder here, about 220 paragon levels in, my main is a Barbarian. I was firing it up daily until about half a week ago, when I just stopped playing, and I've had no urge to play since.

It's a good game, I'm just... over the grind. The game really doesn't have a whole lot of depth when you stop to think about it.

If there's money to be made, you can bet Bobby is on it. In no way out of the realm of possibility. Or at least DLC.

I'm not keen on the man, but I like it when you guys talk smack about him like as if he's the only one that cares about money in this world.

I mean, really, here on Earth, isn't that just a little... you know, par for the course?

I suppose the moon landing was filmed in a studio and Al Qaeda didn't fly planes into the WTC.

And JFK was killed by one guy in that Texas book depository.

Oh, wait...

This is where I'm at. Do I wait until I can get the whole package on the cheap or just grab the vanilla game now. Thing for me is, will I ever play the DLC. Hearthfire looks like something I'd use on my play through but the other two would probably never get used. This is what happened to me with FNV, waited until I got the whole thing on the cheap, sunk over a hundred hours into the vanilla game then stopped playing. Same with Oblivion and Fallout 3, by the time I was done with the vanilla games I was done... though TBH I did start one of the DLCs for FNV and it sucked.

Yeah I'd just grab vanilla mate. It's still plenty huge. To get far enough into the game that you're actually playing DLC content takes a good while, and most who would spend that much time playing the game will already have it.

As a disclaimer, however, if the world really sucks you in, you might come to regret not having also gotten the DLC. I picked up vanilla maybe 6 months ago, and poured 50 hours into the game (which is a lot, for me).

I haven't played in a couple of months now though, but I'll be honest; I do have Dragonborn on my wishlist. Just in case it ever drops enough to be too tempting to pass up.

I signed up for the beta long ago, and have been in it for several weeks now. Super fun.

I did, too.

Bought a few packs, set up a few decks, and then it got boring. Fast.

It's not a bad game, but something tells me there are more of me around than there are of you

So I get this email from Steam...

Hey, one of the items on your wishlist is on sale. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is 25% off, down to $67.47 USD.

Wow, am I a lucky fuck or what? I like how it came out like 4 years ago, and its regular price is still $90 on Steam for Aussies.

At this stage, I'm guessing 6% of you are thinking "get the fuck out of Australia, dude", while the other 94% are going "why is mw2 even on your wishlist?!"

Actually I was thinking "Jeez, paying more for games is a small price to pay for getting to live in an awesome place like Australia!"

Actually, yeah mate, there's a lot of truth to that one, even if do we have awful fucking politicians over here. Yeah yeah, I know - who doesn't, right?

Maybe Bill Gates will come back because he couldn't believe what this idiot did with his company

Gates wasn't exactly doing all that well himself anyway though, was he?

They need someone with a vision or something.

And... yes, their update says they still intend on providing Steam keys to existing owners.

Cool, looking forward to giving it another whirl in a few days

Need to be able to choose from half a dozen classes or something.

Watched a few videos, and considering it's got really rather good lighting effects, for a game that costs $10 there's quite a lack of depth.

Next time, they should probably focus their efforts on what really counts.

I imagine there are a great many fellow Australians in the same boat as I, who thought that, once we got that R18 rating, we'd be fine; that they'd just let it all through.

It makes me laugh that they don't think I'd be able to play that mission without going, "Oooh, drugs r' good!"

Pity there ain't a mission they could add where the player would come out thinking, "Oooh, taxes r' good!" They'd fucking be all over that shit in this country.

17. Re: Saturday Tech Bits Jul 28, 2013, 00:03 Ventura
 
Why wouldn't anyone intending on overclocking just put together an Ivy Bridge system? Isn't it easier and faster than overclocking on Haswell tech? Unless I'm mistaken, their focus with Haswell was to create a good chip for mobile users, ensuring that it doesn't draw as much power while running relatively idle.

I upgraded to Hawell recently from the old Q6600 chip. So yeah, it'd been a while. Had no intention of OC'ing anyway, so I chose the standard 4770, and partnered it with a board based on the H87 chipset. I'll be set for a while now

If I had a dollar for every person who actually thought the idea of this falling skyscraper was cool but hasn't said anything because fuck it, it's Call of Duty, I wonder how much shorter my working day tomorrow would be.

I'll admit that Ghosts has been a bit of a joke thus far what with all the talk about the dog companion and fish that move out of the way when you swim by, but hey, I won't deny that these dynamic map event things sound like a lot of fun.

I like how it's perfectly fine to other franchises like the Battlefield one to walk down the same path, but when it comes to attributing blame, Cod is always the recipient.
