News Comments > Morning Consolidation
6. Re: Morning Consolidation Apr 2, 2012, 12:26 Tumbler
 
Seems like it's time to start planning for a steam box. Only a fool would put up with MS and Sony's systems if they can only buy games from MS and Sony approved locations. Their prices are absolutely disgusting.

Sony and MS are going down if they do this. Short of game makers being forced into exclusive AAA games on the 360/PS3 I don't see how they are not going to lose A TON of gamers. I stick with 360 for most games because I know I can buy games safely and trade/sell them when I'm done or unhappy. You lock my games away from me like the pc does you better have a better plan in place to compete with the pc because right now you're a total joke when you compare them side by side.

Contribution just went from $15 to $50!

I thought Kickstarter was supposed to be cheaper!? Why is it so easy to spend this much money!? I won't even spend money on a pre-order, either it's totally free with a commitment to buy at a later date, that can be terminated at any time or I walk.

But Kickstarter? Oh sure, here is $50, game isn't even made yet? No problem.

What is this Sorcery!?

I never played this back in the day but I hope this will be an HD update to the older game, that would be fun to play it and see what all the fuss was about.

Call me paranoid but after how well everything went with Pre-ordering mass effect 3 I think I'm good with waiting and seeing after launch. I'm a little worried that companies will take a page from the Book of Bioware/EA and start shipping incomplete games to grab all those pre-order dollars then maybe finish the game later, maybe charge money for it.

Because I can start Steam on my laptop in offline mode and still play?

Exactly. I went to Yosemite recently and one of the reasons we picked to stay in the lodge was for internet access. I brought my laptop and wanted to do some gaming while my daughters took naps.

Well it turns out the internet connection is pretty close to useless. I used my verizon data connection on my phone (also extremely bad...but better than wifi) more than I did my laptop because I could barely connect to their wifi and doing anything with it once I did connect was nearly impossible.

I was able to set steam to offline mode but with EA's solution I'd literally be rolling the dice every time I wanted to play a game. That is unacceptable. I am guessing Steam's offline mode has limits as well. I'm under the impression that it will stop working unless I go and connect within 30 days.

It's reasonable that a game or system like steam ask for some authentication but to require it anytime you want to use the software is insane. I don't own starcraft 2 for this reason alone and I despise being treated like I'm only one restart away from being considered a pirate by the people I paid.

It's like being frisked when you walk into and out of a store, with or without a bag. I'm expected to give these guys money...voluntarily?! FUCK THAT. Hell in a situation like this if I see a guy come running out of your store and your people are chasing him yelling thief I'm just going to stand aside and say good day sir. Go fuck yourselves EA.

Needing an online connection at all to play a game you legally purchased is ridiculous. The one time activation stuff is at least something you can take care of when it's convenient, this basically throws that out and says "You can only play our game when it's convenient for us. Don't think you get any special treatment just cause you paid us, you can't play it unless we say so, just like pirates."

Ugh, why are these so complicated? Who comes up with these crazy things?

Operation Might Tower

You and your squad mates must complete 5 levels of the SP campaign in 4 hours but only after playing the MP game with 6 different characters. If you complete this we'll give you a Fanny Pack, which is different than other packs and has stuff in it...but it might also be empty too! It's so exciting so start playing!

News Comments > Ubisoft: Play Assassin's Creed 3 PC With A Controller
52. Re: Ubisoft: Play Assassin's Creed 3 PC With A Controller Mar 28, 2012, 15:02 Tumbler
 
Not everyone is able to use a controller or shares your love of them, as has been explained several times already.

Who is not "able" to use a controller? It's built for two handed humans.

That being said games on the PC don't need to live and die by keyboard and mouse controls. I don't think I want capcom building the next street fighter around using a keyboard and mouse. I understand that if I want to play that game a controller is functional but a fighting stick is ideal. (And a keyboard sucks)

I don't want DCS to build that new Mustang Expansion or whatever so that keyboard and mouse are the best solution, I want them to focus more on HOTAS controls.

I may want forza 5 to focus on contoller and wheel support but I'd hate to see them build it around a keyboard and mouse...the fuck would that play like?

It's silly to demand anyone making software on the PC must make keyboard and mouse controls a priority.

If anything you should say thank you for being open and honest about this so that you don't buy it only to find you need a controller after the fact.

Case in point if you care about this Go Buy a Controller.

You have cheaper options as well if you don't mind long cords.

Cross platform games like this should play with a controller on the pc the same way they do on consoles. (would prefer same FOV as well) I want my super console experience when I buy these games. Don't screw it all up by building old school pc controls like it's somehow going to work when the entire game was designed around the controller to be played on a big screen tv.

Well that's too bad. I thought this was going to be worth buying, sadly not. Maybe they'll update that Anno 2070 game and remove that and put it on sale on steam around the time this comes out. Seems like plenty of games coming out lately that have features that could be removed and sold later so it's easy to pass on crap like this today and pick it up clearance later.

I don't see why people get so upset about a console game needing a console controller. Even if it's on the PC why does this really bother anyone? If you make a flight sim you will likely enjoy it more with a joystick. If you make a driving game you'll likely enjoy it more for with a wheel. (or a joystick or gamepad)

I like the option of playing these games on the PC with a controller. Loved Deus Ex PC with a controller, loved Skyrim PC with a controller. I'm guessing this won't be a $35 sale as deus ex was or as awesome as skyrim was so unless they offer a significant discount and ship it without always on DRM I don't see any of this mattering.

360 game for me.

Hmm, not that interested in a shooter...
*Watches Video*

I can BUILD MY OWN SPACESHIP!? SOLD! ($6)

That should be splashed across the top of this page, build your own space ship shooter!

Oh and Protip, I would have contributed to this from the start, having little interest before watching the video, if you'd simply said "Available on Steam". With small games like this you're making it soooo much easier to buy if you simply say Steam. Without steam I have to download files and install crap, with steam I just copy paste a key and steam does the rest.

Bally's in Las Vegas is a pretty good location on the strip for walking to other Casino's. If there is some kind of special rate for attending might be worth it just for a fun weekend. They might stick everyone on the same floor though...so...yeah...Lotta dudes....not a lot of showers.

Sad that this company has a strong enough franchise to keep them going while they experiment with how much inconvenience gamers will put up with and still pay them.

I think once they have a dozen warzones or play, instead of 3..., I'll be interested in giving it another shot. Crazy to think they have very decent pvp but no levels to play it on.

The legacy system apparently will allow you to jump to the end for a mirror class character. So if you played to lvl 50 Sith you can get a lvl 50 Jedi? That sounds like fun.

The republic side is kind of lame, I haven't found much to like about it so it's not surprising that the majority of players only have empire characters. But pvp is built on republic vs empire so that ends up causing huge problems since there is no cross servers support currently.
