It makes perfect sense for a company developing a game on multiple platforms, to share resources to lighten the development load.
It doesn't mean the game is a 'port'.

You look through Morrowind and Oblivion's files and you'll find graphics for the XBox and 360 buttons. Doesn't mean those games were ports.

A port of a game is where the games resources are converted to be used on another system after it's been released to a particular system.
Nobody ports a game in mid development. That's called developing for multiple platforms and a smart developer will save time by sharing resources between different teams and systems.

It runs and looks better on PC than it does on any other system. What fucking port have you ever known to do that? If that's a port, I want Bethesda to 'port' every game.

I hate to admit it, but even Rage wasn't a port. It was just so sloppy it may as well have been a port.

We can argue about this until next Christmas, but I say that if it's in the development cycle, it's not a port. It's just being developed in tandem, regardless of whatever 'build' the resources 'came from'.

Clearly you don't have a clue what a port is.

Anyone read the article beyond the headline? Didn't think so.

If they only used 'Transformer" this lawsuit probably wouldnt have happened. Problem is they used "Transformer Prime", which is a blatant use of word association.

yes please!!!!

homeworld 3 while we are at it?

Dream on.

They got the license just to sit on it?

My understanding and first hand info from a former Relic employee is that THQ owns the Homeworld IP (bought from Vivendi in 2007). So just because THQ owns the IP and the Relic studio, doesn't mean that Relic would do the third game. But as someone mentioned, it has been alluded to. Either way, it wouldnt be Relics decision but THQ's.

Oh cool, if you preordered the game, you get this DLC for free.

Yep I was surprised to see I already owned the DLC when I went to check it out in the store.

Now that I'm home I took a closer look at the info for the Valve coupons. "Valid Jan 2nd, 2012 to March 1, 2012". Makes the coupons really kinda useless. May as well get what you want from the Holiday Sale, which will be cheaper than using the coupon after Jan 2.

Actually it is a lottery. And I don't know what the law is regarding having to be provided with odds and since they don't I'm going to assume that they don't have to. And it does matter to most rationale people when they play a game of chance what their odds are of winning. And being rationale, I want to know what the odds are.

This isnt some large state or corporate lottery worth millions of dollars, which we both know is what your first comparison was referring to. Rational people don't worry about odds of winning when you don't have to put money out for your chance to win video games.

This contest is so convoluted and it just hides the fact that your odds of winning are so low.

Uhh it's the same format as the Summer Sale. BooHoo you have a limited chance to win, nevermind that you get free stuff just for participating. Don't like it, don't participate, nobody is forcing you. Some whiners will never be happy even if handed free stuff on a silver platter.


I was trying to speak "matter of factly" and then you jumped all over me. I'm sorry. However I still stand behind what I said. The odds of winning are very low and all convoluted complexity hides that fact very well. I wish that like in lotteries, steam showed you your overall odds of winning.

Happy Xmas to you though.

Glad you are happy standing by your complaining about free stuff just for the sake of being negative. This isn't a lottery, they don't have to provide you with odds of winning, nor does it even matter in any way. 25+ million Steam accounts, between 2 and 5 million online at any given time. Do the math, there is your odds of winning. As someone said, your odds of winning are zero if you don't want to participate, nor will you get the free stuff.

System is overloaded atm. My 25% off a Valve product was in my inventory and now it's not, but the tab still shows there being 2 items (only displaying 1). I tried to buy someone the Valve Complete Pack and it didnt give me an option to apply the 25% discount. So I went back to Inventory and it was gone...

I also noticed they have a crap ton of display errors, prices missing, cant get rid of the Daily Deal overlay, etc.

this section of the game will likely remain as it is now in terms of enemy quantity and interactions.

I disagree. The things I mentioned are largely due to the tuning of the random area creation. Having a 1/4 of a dungeon loaded with environment clickables and zero monsters is not intended. Tuning of this, monster and player combat dmg/skills is going to be constant up until release. And knowing Blizzard will continue long after release.

So no. The problems I mentioned have nothing to do with it being the first few hours of the game.

Judging D3 based on the limited area that we have is a mistake.

So you didn't bother to quote the part where I said...

Granted I expect D3 to change a lot before it goes live, but as it is, I'm more looking forward to Torchlight 2 and it's going to be a 3rd of the price of D3.

To repeat...I expect things to change in the D3 beta. BUT AS IT IS NOW, I am more looking forward to Torchlight 2.

Honestly, I have more faith in the original Diablo creators with Torchlight 2 than I do with this new team on D3.

I recently played through the D3 beta, the Skeleton King dungeon was pretty good, everything up to that point was fairly boring. There just arent enough monsters, the ones that spawn out of the walls, statues, etc, the animations take so long for them to become active they pose no threat whatsoever, and when 75% of the monsters are like this, makes combat very boring.

The monsters also seem to have a very short aggro radius, and often they wouldnt attack me at all. If they did aggro and I ran away for 20ft they would stop chasing. So rounding up a big stack of monsters to fight was impossible. Yawn. Back on the lack of monsters, there were often times that I'd be walking through room after room and it was just destructible environment stuff and never a monster. Felt like I was playing one of those hidden objects games.

D3 looks great and sounds great, but the (lack of) skill/stat progression and combat are simply boring.

Getting to the point...I loaded up Torchlight this morning and it's 10x better than D3 beta in its current state. Granted I expect D3 to change a lot before it goes live, but as it is, I'm more looking forward to Torchlight 2 and it's going to be a 3rd of the price of D3.

I said the PS3s is ridiculous.

So you cant even quote yourself right? You didn't say it was ridiculous, you said
looks like something from a feature phone circa 2008?

XMB is intuitive and clean. That's what a proper interface should be. Is it perfect? No. But it's 10x better than the garbage on Live right now. PSN gui is another matter. I don't hate it, but I find it difficult to find anything specific.

Krovven, you aren't even arguing points

What points? You had nothing to say about the new 360 interface. You said one fucking sentence about the PS3 interface comparing it to a phone, which was just you failing at being a troll. If you want to contribute to the conversation, do it. Dont act like you shared a valid objective opinion on both interfaces that is worth discussing, because you didn't.
