News Comments > Modern Warfare 3 Has LAN Support
40. Re: Modern Warfare 3 Has LAN Support Sep 9, 2011, 05:47 Ventura
 
MW3 is the go for me now. They had me with the new Spec Ops survival mode, anyway. I just love the "survive as long as you can" shit. Don't like it? Don't care. Now it's looking like I can LAN it with a mate? Sold.

I'll likely get RO2 and BF3 down the track also though, just not straight away.

News Comments > Steam Top 10

RO2 is presenting itself an appealing package over MW3, if just for the price difference between the two. I can get RO2 on Steam for $35.99, whereas MW3 is currently being let go for a somewhat inflated $99.99. Both in $US, of course.

Nah, it's likely I'll still buy MW3, just... not over Steam.

I have a Commander in there, if I remember correctly. Free to play? Yeah, I'd check it out again.

and with mw4 kocktick will show up to your house and personally rape each person who buys a copy on pc.

Proof that Call of Duty can do no right around here. I knew someone would end up bashing Kotick, even though they're apparently doing everything right with Steamworks, offline play and dedicated servers.

Count me in. No brainer, like everyone else is saying, and LAN multiplayer is the icing on the cake.

Likely pick one up for the wife too, so there's another $40 all up that Blizzard ain't getting.

Well, hopefully a new engine and direction, as it has become a very tired title with the same ol' recycled garbage in a different box

You can expect a new direction if and when it stops selling. In the meantime, given its tendency to smash retail sales records, I wouldn't hope for too much.

Its not as though when you look through the glasses it makes the game look like BF3!!!

If it did, I don't think they'd be able to make enough of them to satisfy demand.

i dunno -- the legion of kids on the planet earth who loved rock band are now very very bored with it

I was very much one of them. Back in the day, I loved it, I bought a full proper Roland electronic drumset and everything.

These days, it's lucky to get fired up maybe once in three months. To be honest though, part of the problem isn't that I'm not interested, just that nobody else really is, and it's really not much fun atall when you're the only one in the band.

That said, my experiences with it rank among the most fun I've ever had playing video games, and even though it's not dead, it's certainly all but dead.

All the people that had original ideas quit the company.

And it's looking more and more like it's not DICE they're now working at.

Did you really expect people to read, much less post in a thread about a patch for a game they don't play?

Where have you been, the moon? They've been doing it for months. Hate cod this, hate cod that. But any news updates that might suggest the support has actually been pretty good, and low and behold, they've fucking vanished.

Gotta take the good with the bad mate. I can't remember the last time a pc game I was playing got thirteen (13) patches.

No haters?

Funny how you all disappear when the patches start flowing. Upped and vanished like a fart in the wind.

Speaking objectively, that actually looks like a lot of fun. I really love the ability to buy in soldiers to help, and that thing blasting the shit out of the bad guys from high up in the sky, looks very cool.

If I could buy this from an online vender, get it for half the price they'll charge in the Aussie Steam store (and certainly half the price they'll charge at retail), I think I'm down for it.

I hope the their stock crash is a wake up call and they finally, finally realize that people are tired of their gimmicks

Little bit early to lay the smack down, don't you think?

They've been laughing all the way to the bank for years now. Like it or lump it, they hit a home run with the Wii. Everyone bought one. Hell, my mum bought one.

So they've announced a successor, and it may not be what everyone was expecting, but so what? Was the Wii?

If the Wii-U tanks, then you can rain shit on Nintendo. For what it's worth, I like that they're a little unconventional, because the last thing we need around here is another Microsoft or another Sony.

News Comments > On Ubisoft DRM
29. Re: On Ubisoft DRM Jul 29, 2011, 05:54 Ventura
 
a clear reduction in piracy of our titles which required a persistent online connection, and from that point of view the requirement is a success.

I'd call that coincidence more than anything else, because it's not like the pirates didn't figure out how to beat it.

To be honest, I think it's more because so few really give a shit. What's the best one with this persistent DRM, Assassin's Creed 2? Did anyone half keen on that one really bother waiting four months after the console versions came out for the pc version?

The rest of their games have been pretty much garbage. Frankly, I have better things to use my monthly quota on.

News Comments > Call of Duty XP Sales, No PC Call of Duty Elite Beta?

Heh, I knew the resident CoD buttkisser would be quick to respond.

Whereas all the resident Battlefield buttkissers are still reeling from the lack of Steam support, right?

I could do without Steam support, I'll be honest, but if Modern Warfare 3 has it and Battlefield 3 does not, that's a bonus.

I realise the Modern Warfare 3 footage we've seen thus far looks very similar to it's predecessor, but in all fairness, Battlefield 3 also looks a lot like Bad Company 2.

Truth is, I'll never know which of the two to buy (and will probably just end up getting both), but the new Spec Ops Survival mode in MW3 is exactly the sort of thing I typically get into, and I'm still pissed at the Battlefield franchise for taking bot support out. Compared to the earlier Battlefield titles, Bad Company 2 really didn't get played a lot.

App Store game prices rise.

Wow, good on you Apple. Must admit I always found it comical us Aussies paying $1.19 for apps that cost US customers only $1.00 when our dollar has been buying about $1.07US for months now.

I could only imagine the outcry if Steam prices were raised in several of the main territories because those of us in places like Australia had to pay more. The shit would hit that fan.

News Comments > Burning Crusade Free, WoW Free to Play
18. Re: Burning Crusade Free, WoW Free to Play Jun 29, 2011, 00:58 Ventura
 
The main reason everyone else is doing it, is because they couldn't make money (or very little of it) via subscriptions. WoW doesn't have that problem


Not yet, anyway.

While it will still no doubt be making a profit, it's obviously not as much as it used to be. They wouldn't be taking these sorts of steps to recruit new players to the game otherwise, and it's not like they'd have advertised it if a couple million subscribers had quit.

It won't die for a long time, but it's obviously peaked.
