News Comments > Retailers Versus Steam?
56. Re: Retailers Versus Steam? Nov 11, 2010, 14:31 4D-Boxing
 
it represents how many PC gamers are throwing away what is great about our platform for some convenience. Auto-patching, DRM, account-based ownership, one platform with overlords...

I undertand your point but until retailers start selling and promotting PC games I'll use STEAM. Never like the service but I'm not going to give my hard earned $$ to stores that dedicate 99% of shelve space to console games and give PC games a small rack in an obscure corner of the store.

I feel no sympathywhat so ever! Just like game devs they need to give the people what they want!

I used to be able to go to the mall and try PC games at EB now I cant even find them cause the display area is so small.

News Comments > RAGE Interview

What the bleep?! They do not want to optimize the graphics for the PC, they are not sure if they wanted to include "true" dedicated servers but they wont have any problems complaining about poor sales on the PC.

Go out of your way not to give the clients what they want but complain about sales later... what's going on with devs now days?!?!

I think Carmack got his oxygen mix wrong while testing his space shuttle for that so called space race. How can some one go from brilliant to not having a clue so d@mn fast?!?!

Must be that Cliffy B-boy disease!!!

Time for them to get out he game & focus on IPad & Iphone. Not a worth while title since Quake3 and this one is DOA!!!

Time for someone with deep pockets to step up and give good modders some serious $$ and get gaming back on track!!

None of these big companies have even been able to release something that rivals STALKER and that series has bugs and polish issues.

Easter Europeen devs, the market is wide open jump in and take over please!

Keep on dreaming UBI. Far Cry 2 was supposed to be a AAA title lol!

They might as well go console only with after the DRM fiasco and what they did to the R6 franchise.

I can't see them doing anything worth buying.

Forge...

Like you i think this is unacceptable!

However, cars do get recalled! Was it Ford that had all the roll overs back in the days. Most manufacturer have had to recall vehicles.


Anyways, no AA now this...almost sounds like an Epic CliffyBoy creation.

Dades,

Thanks for reminding people of this old fix.
It applies to any title with the same issue and there are tools that can help fine tune AA for all card manufacturers once the fix has been applied.

Yes, there should be support out of the box but we are PC gamers we can even add widescreen support and adjust FOV when we need to. As a community we are more resourceful than any developer!

Good luck Jobs!

With ISPs putting caps on download at 10gigs, how many movies will people download? If you buy few games via dd online, the 10 gig cap becomes a prob since the ISP starts charging extra.

Now imagine renting 2 or 3 movies at a time like most do, how long will that take?

With enough cash, anyone can buy an HD tv and a blue ray player but not everyone has access to high speed internet.

blue ray is far from great but digital distribution is not ready for prime time.

I really dont get it. People trying to say it takes a long time to connect or find good BFBC2 servers?!

Are they on dial up? 56k lovin lol.

Come on! No need to make up stuff.

I connect just easily and as fast as in any other game using dedicated servers.

I'm an old twitch gamer, ut,quake etc.. So i enjoyed Cod4.
lets be honest MW2 PC played like cr@p online. Does mean everybody has to love BFBC2.

News Comments > Bad Company 2 Patch Wednesday
19. Re: Bad Company 2 Patch Wednesday Apr 19, 2010, 18:39 4D-Boxing
 
I understand why many want to see the M60 nerfed but I would leave all weapons as is, but I would increase the lateral movement when using pistols, assault & light weapons. Increase it another notch if using the light weight gear.

Toe to toe an assault guy should be able to outmaneuver & take out a medic using an m60 out but it's not the case right now.

I would even make magnum ammo default for assault class only but that might be going to far.

PS. IMO increased lateral movement would permit people to get away from the m60 srpay without nerfing, even at range.

BTW the punkbuster updates seem to help (not everybody). I did 2 manual updates. It now takes less than 10 tries to connect (10 dif servers attempted).

Despite all this, I still get 2 or 3 PB kicks a day.

Same here until I unlocked the Aug, but the grip really helps as well when using the assault kit.

I think you're right. If I think back to the discussions on tis site regarding the first 2 games & even this one, I would do the same.

That being said I'd trade Dragon Age & Borderlands for the North American version of this game without hesitation.

space captain

Glad to see I'm not the only one who's not impressed with SGU.

LOL...I keep telling people I dont want to watch Days of our Lives in space...

As for the MMO, why not try to make an A+ single player game before trying to make an MMO?! Making an MMO costs lots of $$$ ...I think it's make or break when you go MMO! But then again I'm no expert...

Dont want the game to be held back until the movies is done...

If that is not the case then why not, enjoyed that scene in one of the Matrix movies with the walkers.

Then again Creston has a very good point.

News Comments > DiRT 2 DirectX 11 Interview
8. Re: DiRT 2 DirectX 11 Interview Sep 25, 2009, 13:21 4D-Boxing
 
But ATi hasn't been as negative as nVidia has regarding DX11...

Good for them, but it's still same old game that companies in all fields play..nothing new there. I do not gauge the level of BS to determine who is right I just call the BS.

Nvidia can accuse ATI of eating babies.. who cares ..the point is that all this is BS.. it's what big companies like that do.. don't get caught up in the hype, think for yourselves..their are plenty of hypocrites on all sides.

All this stuff has been said & done back when GLIDE was a 3Dfx only API...

As a canuck I'm an ATI guy but I sure do not fall for all the blah blah blah.. I d@mn well know that if the roles where reversed they would do the exact same thing..cause business is business..

By all means keep crying about having to spend money but I for one am looking forward to it. Is it going to rewrite gaming? No. But it's certainly going to improve it.

My point exactly.. why freak over new tech? People even cry about PhysX support lol...

I assume those people never heard of 3DFX & glide...lol... I'm sure the PC enthusiasts know where I'm going with that comment..

Gee, nVidia slagging off a technology that they haven't yet implemented... who'd thunk it?

That's the name of the game..just like ATI comments about PhysX..though PhysX is what it is lol...(we all know the story) or DX 10.1 cards somebody..

Some companies learned from DX10 debacle others did not... it's not about the value of the new tech. it's about selling a 400$ card that only a handfull of games will be able to use fully. Take into consideration the fact that most people will wait at least a year and get the same support and probably better performance from a revised card (ATI or Nvidia who cares..).

Buy a 8800GTX on release day or wait for DX10 titles to really hit the market & get a GTX 280 on release day..what would have been the better choice?! People could even have skipped DX10 hardware all together.

Why people get caught up in marketing hype is beyond me they should just do their own research just like you did with regards to Hardware tessellation or with Nvidia's sad attempts at hyping DX10.. Education is the key!!

like you said it's 2009 .. even cell phones have Google now lol...

Remember people new tech. is good but it does not mean that you have to buy it ASAP!!!

Bring on DX15…I'll buy the hardware when the time is right…not when the API is released lol..

"I've abandoned the PC as a gaming platform because I feel it's getting too expensive."

Marketing departments love people like that...shows how marketing hype can work on people who do not do research & fall for every flashy headline.

I guess that's why we still have infomercials..

Same thing happened with DX10 but then people who did their research realized that titles can look almost identical in DX9 (add crysys comments..)...D11 STALKER screenshots pretty much tells the story about DX11. Nvidia even said it's to early to jump on the DX11 bandwagon lol! ( & they make video cards lol)

I guess this is PC gaming natural selection at work..
