While the graphics don't look all that bad to me from the trailers... the horrid voice acting from one of those trailers still rings in my head.

Given the release comments and reviews, I'll probably pick this up on a sale that has it at $5 or less.

News Comments > Wildman Kickstarter Cancelled
14. Re: Wildman Kickstarter Cancelled Feb 11, 2013, 19:44 wtf_man
 
Never played any of his games, and if I remember correctly... the first dungeon siege had poor reception, so I skipped it.... and all his other games are either RTS or ARPGs... which I'm not into.

However, I aree that using kickstarter isn't an appropriate way to try to save a company.

Well... my 8800GTX lasted 5 years for me, and I expect my GTX680 will last at least that long... so I can't say that I'm all that surprised with either company slowing down how often they put out a new card.

That said, I was looking forward to getting an HD8750 for our guest room machine. I won't run out and buy a 7750 when I know that an 8750 is right around the corner.

That is the segment they really need to concentrate on, since they are going for low power for mobile. Squeeze as much performance as possible without needing an extra PCIe power cable would benefit their Mobile R&D. It is also the segment that nVidia hasn't competed well in... the 7750 is significantly faster than the GT640... which is pretty impressive for a card that needs no extra power.

According to my calculations, everyone in the world now owns Skyrim and ARMA II and are now buying their second set of copies...

I'd rather see this, than the fricken Sims and their expansions constantly on the top 10.

Hey, this a good deal. Now people can ignore them on TWO platforms!

Creston

Yup.
I have both platforms and still haven't installed it on Windows!
..and since I don't game on my Mac... it will be even easier to avoid.

Starting to get desperate? They've always been desperate. They did a South Park cash-in game, for crying out loud. Their only attempts at original IP have always failed.

While Alpha Protocol may have failed commercially... I enjoyed it (except for the dialog timer). A bit more polish and I think it would have done better than it did.

News Comments > Activision/Blizzard Reveals Profits, Unannounced MMOG
13. Re: Activision/Blizzard Reveals Profits, Unannounced MMOG Feb 8, 2013, 09:26 wtf_man
 
I still don't get the WoW addiction. I've played many MMOs that I thought were better (and held my attention for a year or two), and after getting to the mid levels in WoW within a couple of months... looking for the addiction that everyone else seems to find... I just couldn't stand it anymore, quit, and never looked back.

It has to be one of the dullest MMO's I've ever played, and I don't know why... because it's not that far off the typical MMO designs from games I've played that I felt were superior.

If they had the equivalent of Firewall IP and iBlacklist in the app store, I wouldn't have to "hack my IOS" device...

But those apps are exactly the types that Apple (and the telecom carriers) will never allow, because they give you FULL CONTROL of your own device, regarding what YOU ALLOW it to do, or not do.

News Comments > John Carmack On Linux Gaming Support
11. Re: John Carmack On Linux Gaming Support Feb 6, 2013, 10:32 wtf_man
 
Well... I find it interesting that Timothee actually said:
"They simply lost interest towards the PC in general during the idTech5 cycle"

And Carmack is focusing on the Linux comments.

It is real apparent that he first lost interest in OpenGL in favor of DirectX, and he was a huge proponent of OpenGL... and now it's apparent that he (and the rest of id) has (have) lost interest in the PC in favor of Consoles.

So, he'll probably retire after idTech6... but then again, I always thought 5 was going to be his last effort.

Ads in menus... I can probably deal with, although I wouldn't like it.

Forced Xbox Live subscription to use something like a Netflix app... then they can fuck off.

With it so easy to duel boot or use emulators I just do not see the need for a game to support Linux.

So when they duel, which OS wins?

John Carmack pioneered the way of the FPS via the PC, but it’s really too bad he/id Software became sellouts to the console market. They lost their way in the dust trail left by many other talented developers. Indies have become best thing for PC games now…

The funny thing is that id/apogee/3d realms were basically "indies" back then, with Scott Miller's shareware business model.

So, when you think about it, not much has changed on "who is good for the PC games industry".

Square Enix struggling to make money from its console games

...From the article

Still, Square Enix expects to make a profit for the full financial year ending March 2013. How will it do this?
...blah blah blah

...and the launch of full-scale commercial services for major MMO titles will establish its profit base...

LOL

Yeah right... FFXIV relaunch is going is going to pull them out of a rut.

Great! I've been wanting to install iBlacklist and Firewall IP since switching to Verizon and getting iPhone 5's. Ran them on my 3G phone, for years.

3. Re: Amnesia Fortnight 2012 Released Feb 2, 2013, 10:53 wtf_man
 
As much as I like Tim Schaffer, Ron Gilbert, and the team at Double Fine... I'm a bit more conservative about giving up cash. When They complete the Kickstarter Adventure Game... I will be happy to support them more.

Remember... that was supposed to be out in October. I understand the scope creep, so I'm not really complaining... but at the same time, I feel they need to make good on that deal, before I continue support.

Maybe I'll buy this after the Adventure game is done.

I'm on the same page as Beamer on this one.

DX as a suite is going bye bye, not the 3D tech that is used by games.

Uh.. no.

Just the systematic pussification (as George Carlin puts it) of this country over the last 20 years or so, really pisses me off.
