Gimme!

I've been drooling over this game since I heard about it....showing it off at QuakeCon is not going to help.

The time and/or resources that developers spend on getting their game out for all these different platforms could be better spent on squashing bugs before the game hits release.

Agreed---just not in the case of Epic and certain other developers. Remember UT2004? That game reeked of polish and I have little doubt UT3 will as well. Anyway, Epic has already stated that the reason UT3 is coming out for the PC and PS3 simultaneously is because the PS3 is open source (or something similar, can't remember the exact quote), while the Xbox360 is not and that release is therefor delayed quite a bit.

Edit: Damn, meant 2004, not 2003. Stupid typo.

I can't wait for this. Though with that said, I wonder how many multiplayer modes it will have--that was the biggest downfall of UT2003. There were simply so many modes that the online community fragmented badly, and then there were all the incredible mods too.

I still have UT2003 on my system though, it's one of the first games I install. It's still great to just jump in and play a quick game of DM or two against the bots.

Enahs, ask on the Galciv2 board to be sure. I'm fairly certain that chipset will work, as it will even run with crappy old intel chipsets. The only thing that MIGHT be an issue is the new graphics engine they just released.

IIRC they added an option to roll back to the old engine rendering system for anyone who was experiencing problems with the new one. I could just fire up GalCiv2 to check, but I'm too lazy.

I've got to agree with Enahs. The game is polisheed and well done and as much as I wanted to enjoy it I just couldn't get into the game.

I still highly recommend that people check it out. It may not have been my thing but it's definately worth a look.

I never got around to playing FEAR; I was going to pick up the Gold version soon. Maybe I'll wait just a bit longer (especially considering I'm running a Logitech G15 and G5, both USB).

Steam has it for $19.95, free shipping!

Perfect, I'll grab it right now. I should probably browse the list of Steam games at some point too.

Weeks? So prior to "weeks" ago you must have been constantly high then, to have found anything I wrote interesting.

I read Dubious Quality daily, so my taste of what is 'interesting' is already highly suspect, before the large quantities of consciousness-enhancing supplements are taken into account.

A proper example would be that Star Wars episodes I through III are prequels to Star Wars episodes IV-VI.

You must be confused. Prequels to Star Wars IV-VI were never made.

You're right about the prequel thing though--Enahs must have already gone out and gotten high without me.

Edit: Anyone have a link to someplace I can buy Painkiller: Gold cheap? I always meant to play it and never did; I'd pick it up through Gogamer but it's out of stock right now.

I need something to pass the time until the flood of good games in a couple of months.

i think it should be considered crime if u have to scroll down couple of times to read just one post.


Agreed. Especially when it has to be done at a desktop resolution of 1680*1050.

Though to be honest the only thing Enahs has written in weeks that I've actually found interesting was this:

And? Men go for women with small waist and supple tender breast and a curvaceous ass and long silky smooth legs.

It's much more akin to Red Orchestra when it started out as a UT2004 mod. No vehicles, heavily focused on objective based infantry combat.

The PS3 is dead in terms of games. Developers are already bailing out left and right because the installed base is so low. Games are sold to make money--would you try to sell your game on a console that has a fraction of the installed base that the Wii does?


The PS3 may win Sony the format war (and that has yet to be decided) but they've already lost the console war for this generation.

It seems to have helped, though I wish there was a way to mute people. I mean c'mon, HL2DM had it, it shouldn't be that hard to stick in as this is a HL2 mod.


It's fun, but realism can get pretty old when you don't even see your killer most of the time. I guess I'm just too much of an old-school deathmatch-er.

Explosions currently count as suicides (fixed in the upcoming patch). Makes it very hard to figure out who's TKing the entire team. The ability to ban people needs to be made a lot easier, as there are currently quite a few CS asshats running around the servers.

It definately needs work, but for a first Beta it is impressive.

Can you describe the gameplay a bit? What's it like?

Hmm

Well it...

Then there's the...

No, I can't. It's rather unique. Unless you're really strapped for HDD space I'd recommend starting up Steam and grabbing the demo. I still haven't played enough to get a solid impression of it yet, but it's at least worth a look.

I've been playing around with it for a bit, doing the tutorials and skirmishes against the AI and I've gotta say it's a fun game. I'm going to try some multiplayer later, but for $16 I may just pick this up.

News Comments > Overlord Patch and Updated Demo
15. Re: Patch Jul 4, 2007, 20:09 Bucky
 
Having to replace a GX2 to achieve decent framerates, seems wrong to me. What other titles does it have issues with, if you don't mind me asking?

Performance, with the exception of Overlord and Neverwinter Nights 2, has never been a problem with this card. More frequently it's issues with shadowing, though it depends on what driver version you happen to be running. Off of the top of my head:

FEAR: Shadow flickering. (fixed)
Dark Messiah: Shadow flickering (fixed)
STALKER: Shadow flickering, several other display issues.

I've noticed other things in games now and then, but they usually get resolved. I was planning on grabbing a 8800 GTS in a couple of months anyway, I may just do it sooner now.


The Overlord performance issue persists too, I see no change from what I was getting before. Maybe I'll pick it up once I get a new card.

Thanks, it looks like it's something in my system. It might just be the card, I've found a lot of weird issues with the 7950GX2 and Nvidia bailed on their support of it fairly quick. I guess I'll find out if the new demo helps whenever the Filenuts download finishes crawling along.


*wanders over to Newegg to look at 8800GTS cards*
