To me it's just another front-end/downloader.

Well... I object to it on several levels.

First off... I don't like to be forced into anything... and forcing me to use their "service" to be able to utilize an application that I purchased doesn't sit well with me.

Then there's the fact that I don't particularly care for EA in the first place... and I absolutely refuse to give them my information, so they can sell it later, or target marketing crap at me. (And they will)

So, no... it's not just another "frontend downloader" to me. It's run by a shady company that wants control over my installed applications on MY machine. They can Fuck Off.

You do have to log in to Origin from within the game client before playing. >snip<

Enough stated there to conclude that I'll pass. Too bad, I was kind of looking forward to trying this one out.... but I will never make an Origin account.

Maybe they are afraid to tinker with the "new" gamebryo game engine.

Maybe they don't have a rendering engine programmer, and leave that all to the company that they bought the engine from. We're talking Bethessda Game Studios, here... not ID. I would Imagine that their programmers mainly coded the game logic and the radiant AI stuff (whit is probably what Todd Howard was referring to as a "New Engine").

Quests never run out. Talk to everyone in every town you visit. You'll never run out of quests.

I meant the "Hand-Crafted quests"... not the Radiant AI quests.

Of course, those go on forever.

Every once in a while... I still trigger a "Hand-Crafted quest" (Usually a Daedric one) as I'm walking around the wilderness looking for un-discovered map points.

It's cool to find those just by exploring.

Wow, Skyrim's got legs. Bethesda must be cooking their steaks over bricks of cash at their company barbecue.

Well... I've got 160 hours in, with my first and only character. And while I have done almost all of the quest content... there's still wandering and discovering dungeons I haven't been to on the map, and crafting. I can see this pushing 200hours on one character... plus playing with mods here and there...

I can't think of any other recent game that gives that kind of value for the money. And that's without community created quest mods nor DLC.

Even at full price of $50... that's a hell of a deal.

Bottom line... they deserve their "bricks of cash", and I hope other developers and publishers take notice.

News Comments > No Mass Effect 3 on Steam; Requires Origin

Wasn't going to buy ME3 anyway, but...

5) Is there an opt in or opt out clause for data collection?
Users will be allowed to opt-out of Mass Effect 3 data collection from inside the game.

Yeah... opt-out AFTER they have already collected some data... that's just fuckin' brilliant. No Thanks.

If you like atmospheric puzzle-platformers, LIMBO is great. It was also on sale for $2.50 during the Steam holiday sale.

Well, the video on Steam reminded me of the game Another World, which is one of the few platformers that I really liked.

All 3 of my Congressman still listed as "in favor" of SOPA yet all claim to be against big government and expanding its already over-reaching powers. Liars or idiots? Or does it even matter?

Again... they are all liars and idiots. Vote them all out, regardless of party. All incumbents must go! At least the freshman (that aren't up for re-election yet) haven't learned how to fuck us over, yet.

Try voting independent or non-partisan candidates... at least it seems like they really WANT to serve the people. That's the ONLY way to break the Status Quo!

17. Re: Codemasters Complaints Jan 14, 2012, 10:32 wtf_man
 
I would think that most studios do salaries instead of hourly for the exact reason that they legally don't have to pay overtime.

So, if one agrees to a "salary" position, they should not expect to get any overtime pay.

That said... "salary jobs", in general, should be illegal except for what they were originally intended for... upper management that usually makes a ton more than the "top non-manager workers". You know... specifically the upper management folks that get huge bonuses every year. (And probably put in very little overtime by comparison to a game dev)

Well... it's cool that Reckoning will have a Demo... one can see if it's worth purchasing.

However, I couldn't care less about Mass Effect 3.

In defense of Carmack...

He doesn't design games.
He doesn't even program the games.
He doesn't program the AI (That I know of).
He writes only the graphics tech portion of the "engine". Period.

That said...

He definitely screwed the pooch on this last "Tech Endeavor".
The Texture BS really bit him on the ass.
Ever since he switched from promoting OpenGL, to promoting DirectX, his work has been questionable.

I guess I am missing something. Interplay HAD to have something done for the MMO otherwise why would Beth being paying Interplay at all right?

Because in the world of law even if you are in the right it is most of the time easier and less painless to settle and make the bullshit go away.

Calling it the "justice system" makes me puke in my mouth a little.

Also it's a hell of a lot less than what Interplay wanted originally for the sale of the MMO rights... So, in a way it still worked out... even if the crooks got "paid off" a little.

Doesn't matter which party you look at, the majority of them are in the back pockets of corporations complete crooks.

Fixed that for ya... there's more than one thing that makes most of them bad, ya know.

And yes, I dumped my party and switch to Non-partisan. Vote out ALL incumbents (regardless of party)... that's the only way to send a message to Washington and beat the "Status Quo".

We also need strict term limits for Congress... Not these assholes making a career of fucking us over.
