News Comments > Make Something Unreal Live 2013 Results

The last one gave us The Ball and Antichamber as runners up, amongst others that I don't believe have had commercial releases yet.

Weren't Red Orchestra and Killing Floor also MSU competitors?

News Comments > Borderlands 2 DLC and Patch Released
2. Re: Borderlands 2 DLC and Patch Released Apr 3, 2013, 00:48 StreetPreacher
 
I've gotta be honest - I'm not real thrilled as a Season Pass holder. 11 more XP levels and some more guns? Meh. This is nowhere near the "new content" of an expansion the likes of Scarlett, Torgue, or Hammerlock. I feel kinda cheated as I would've certainly passed given the the option of buying it individually.

I mean, could you imagine the outcry if BF3 released DLC that just let you become a Lvl 120 Colonel and added a couple extra guns? It's "Downloadable," but is it "Content?"

What was the statistic? Oh right...more people were killed last year by bludgeoning than guns in this country.

Um...bullshit.

Not for last year, but you get the idea that it isn't even a LITTLE close: FBI Expanded homicide statistics for 2007-2011

I seem to remember the quote you're talking about somewhere, though, and they didn't say "guns" they said a specific type of rifle.
Assault rifles. More people are killed each year by bludgeoning (and bicycles, interestingly enough) than are killed w/ assault rifles, which comprise a fraction of 1% of homicides.

In another year, you'll be the proud owner of a service no-one in their right mind will ever pay to use again.
In another year? I'm wondering who in their right mind pays to use them NOW! Can't they and Games For Windows Live just enter into some kind of suicide pact and let us be done with them already?

or even free release that will be standardized across desktops and phones
Oh that's a GREAT idea - because people totally use their PC's exactly the same as they use their phones.

And on a related note, how are those Windows 8 reviews going for ya?

Great news. I hope they'll stay away from the combat elements this time. Last time it was like they didn't believe in the concept enough to really stick with it, and I think the game suffered as a result.

I'd rather see bot support for co-op play about 100x more than this.

Err, I thought they looked pretty good? I'm more worried about them ever releasing it.
I'm not saying they look bad per se, just that they look very obviously like they are from a 7-year-old game. And I think that a lot of people might overlook or discount it for that reason. They've obviously done a ton of work on it and it's a shame that it's slipped this long and hasn't kept up with Source improvements better (more akin to L4D2 or Portal 2).

But I'll definitely play it if and when it ever comes out.

Wow, those screens are looking really dated now. It kinds reminds me of Daikatana, which took so long that by the time it came out it looked very last-gen.

Can you imagine HL re-done w/ modern tech (UE3/4, Cryengine 3, Frostbite 2)?

Judge must be blind! UE is such a horribly twisted trainwreck without any measure of support that NOBODY would ever be able to make a successful game out of it. Ever.

Mark, Tim, and CliffyB are selling snake oil, I tells ya!

What if I have regular (Steam/retail) ArmA II and not the "Combined Operations" flavor? Can I still play this mod?

Take a look at all the games that use UE 3.0, and you'll see there's quite a range of looks:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Unreal_Engine_games
Holy crap that list is HUGE! I knew that UE3 was very pervasive, but wow. Also, the fact that *3 installments* of at least 2 different AAA blockbuster games (Gears of War and Mass Effect) have shipped on it speaks for UE3's power and longevity, or the overdue status of UE4. Or both.

And yeah - anyone who says that all UE games look the same isn't paying attention. That's like saying all oil paintings look the same. It's all up to the artist.

They should at least sell it for $5 or something on Steam. This thing has a ton of (well-deserved) hype and they've obviously been working hard. They should cash in! I'd probably pay $15 easy.

I don't think selling mobile games is the focus. At least not yet. I think it's more a "see and chat w/ your friends and buy games on the go" kind of thing.

Which I think is AWESOME. Took 'em long enough.

That was the whole reason I bought this game was for the Coop.
Bad move dude. I bought Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (PC) for the exact same reason, and the scumbag developer just arbitrarily decided not to ship it. That is, AFTER they shipped co-op DLC for Xbox.

So I learned - never, NEVER buy a game based on a feature that a developer promises to deliver at some point in the future. Because they lie.

I'm a Steam whore, so I'd say get rid of whatever crap 3rd party multiplayer system BL1 uses. What is that ... Gamespy? EA? Don't like it.

But whatever you do, do NOT use GFWL.

Mad props to Gabe. He's a master troll. This is what it sounds like when someone exceeeeedingly intelligent plays stupid. He's essentially saying "Yeah, that sounds like a good idea. But gosh darn it, I/we just can't figure out how to do it, what with all the numbers and the money and the buying and the selling of stuff. Math is hard."

So he doesn't have to commit to being on either side of the issue, and people who want to sell their old games can come away feeling like Valve is fervently working on the problem.

Well played Mr. Newell ... well played.
