I like Windows 8. Some parts of it have obviously been designed by the biggest idiot in the universe, but most of it I like.

I liked the announcement. I have a Mac and a PC. It's nice to know if I go travelling with the Mac there's something I can play.

The grading is pretty good, except for the underground which looks a bit odd with a yellow tint.

I'm enjoying D3 after the latest patch. As a Barb I can actually kill things now, which is nice. I'm sure there are better games out there design wise, but I still find the game fun.

Why is the font color of this news different than all other items?

News Comments > Steam Top 10
31. Re: Steam Top 10 Aug 26, 2012, 23:21 Reactor
 
Yep, the mouse trumps the gamepad 90% of the time, but for third person games that feature lockon as a main part of the gameplay, pads are actually better. Assassin's Creed is a good example. It's just better on a pad, and it took me a bit to actually realise that because I've used the mouse for so long.

That said, there's nothing wrong with lamenting the mouse controls in DS. They'd be good if they were coded properly.

Well, I tried the game with a higher res and I actually prefer the chunkier vanilla look, because the game looks less like a bunch of flat polys with low res textures. It seems more atmospheric, but obviously that's just me, because everyone else seems to want a game running at 3k with AA, despite how boringly flat it makes things look.

Anyhoo, while this might not be the best port, at least it runs without crashes.

News Comments > Dark Souls Resolution Hack
1. Re: Dark Souls Resolution Hack Aug 24, 2012, 11:31 Reactor
 
Maybe it's because I'm not a resolution whore, but I don't mind the graphics when scaled to the equivalent of 1680. The game looks decent enough. That said, it's nice to have this hack.

Now all the game needs is the downright horrid mouse movement fixered (for those without a pad), and some heavy keyboard remapping.

EDIT: And I suppose if possible the 30fps limit. But, even that's fine. It's just the odd moment of slowdown that makes it seem worse than it really is.

This is the thing which is stopping me from paying full whack for it. I don't have a controller and currently don't see a need for one on my PC. I'll try the demo and see if that sways me.

It's not unplayable with M&K, it just has a somewhat irritating auto-centring thing going on. If they can disable that in a patch, the controls would be spot on.

I'm really enjoying the game. And, the gunplay is pretty good. It just takes a bit to get used to.

The original movie was great was because it was enjoyable. The new one's ratings pretty much describe it as what it is- despite being more faithful to the book, and enjoyable for some, it isn't that good of a movie.

I miss Psyclapse / Psygnosis and their legendary Amiga games.. Agony, Shadow of the Beast, Perihelion, Leander... Ahh those musics *pops out old -mod tunes*

Thank goodness there are some grown-ups around here mentioning Blood Money, Obliterator, Perihelion and others (Hired Guns!).

Obviously a lot were just published, but... the memories... the memories...

Tough crowd. I like Jay. He's an experienced developer doing his best. It's not like the original Diablo devs got everything right either.

It looks pretty good if you ask me and I'm having a blast reliving one of the greatest RPG's ever made.

JRPG is it? This is no RPG.

It's 2012 ffs.

I agree. If you're going to re-release something and charge more than $10 for it, you'd better make it as good as possible.

Keep changing the main character and making the last one a bad guy. That'll be sure to keep the fans happy!

I agree that changing things up for no apparent reason was a boneheaded decision. All they had to do is expand on the original (ala Just Cause) and they would have had a hit.

I wasn't expecting much from the movie but actually really enjoyed it. I'm looking forward to the second, but I doubt I'll be hanging out for the game.
