News Comments > Fallouts Returning to Steam

Yeah, they had to add DRM back in from the GOG versions...that is the real reason why they needed to "update".

Looks like it's finally time to partition my Xubuntu drive in half (1TB) to make room for SteamOS.

You can't do that; the installer (regardless of whether you pick expert mode) WILL ERASE YOUR ENTIRE HARD DRIVE.
Ouch!
Do they even tell you this, or does it just go and do its thing ?

Well... I'll believe it when I see the fix.

In the meantime, having to logon every 30 days or so, still pisses me off.
30 days? Your lucky.
It happens every 10 days or so for me, and yes, I report it, and they throw back a canned response with worthless "trouble shooting".
Nothing in my system changes, except driver updates, and OS patches.

Bah, those idiots dropped support for Vista and I still have a few machines that use that OS. Vista basically supports everything that win 7 has (same DX version), so no real reason to pay $$ to "upgrade" them.

actually this guy might have a case. If I am not mistaken this guy left ubisoft to make the game 1666 and THQ was his publisher. When THQ went belly up Ubisoft bought the publishing rights and from the way it looks pulled the plug on his game soon after they gained the publishing rights.

Yes, but as someone else mentioned a few days back on this - can't recall who, might have been Dev or Parralax - this is cute move on Ubisoft's part because they haven't cancelled the game, only suspended it - indefinitely - so it's not technically not a breach of contract. I suppose it comes down to the actual specifics of the contract. But, as these these things aren't undertaken lightly he obviously feels he has a strong enough case to take action on it.
I thought all contracts were null & void once THQ went into bankruptcy?
So.. no, they won't win.

So how can we NOT know who owns the IP? If anything the one who bought it should blast the fanfares and hype us "We will do Homeworld 3" .. but this? This is just weird. No info at all?
Who would even pay more than $50K for Homeworld? Sure it was an interesting series, but having been dead for a decade there's not much value to it right now.
First off, it wasn't $50K, *if* you believe the kickstarter for homeworld. They said they had additional funding. I am guessing it went for $100K minimum.

I am sure that once the court documents are released, we will see who got what, but I have no idea how long that takes.

The game was nice, but, you can make the same type of game cheaper than it would have been to purchase the name, which is why that kickstarter campaign seemed to be really shady.
At least everyone is getting refunds.

Yeah, pretty much the same issue steam had.

All these clients need to operate in a sand box, and not touch anything else.

It needs another month (or more) of work... but, I guess they must push it through before the series airs.

News Comments > Dead Space 4 Cancelled?
40. Re: Dead Space 4 Cancelled? Mar 5, 2013, 13:10 Clancy
 
They updated:

UPDATE: Dino Ignacio, UI Lead at Dead Space developer Visceral Games, has denied today's story about the end of the Dead Space series.

"The reports of our death were greatly exaggerated," he tweeted. "Please stand by."

Ian Milham, creative director at EA and ex-art director on Dead Space, also took to Twitter to deny the story.

"Almost nothing in that article is true," he wrote. Then, in response to a question on Twitter: "I confirm nothing except the hooey in that story."

EA's US PR team has reportedly called the VideoGamer.com report "patently false".

"While we have not announced sales for Dead Space 3, we are proud of the game and the franchise remains an important IP to EA," an EA spokesperson told Eurogamer.

Linux don't need more crappy games, they need the big guns to come along.

Batman, Prototype, and so on.
Then, they will have a chance.

Do they not know that Relic already released the source code to Homeworld? What is missing is a clear license for the said source code. Would also be cool if THQ just released the whole thing as freeware.

A source code release doesn't include the game assets and even though it's been out for 9 years now no one has done anything at all with the code short of a halfway Linux SDL port. And at this point I don't think THQ is in a position to give away anything their creditors think they can sell for even a few bucks.
True, but, nobody can do anything with the source, since the license don't allow it. Heck, the license they used pretty much made it so nobody can use it for anything, except personal use.
Anything else is breaking the terms of the license, which means, it can't be included in any linux distros, even if all the assets were redone.

That is why people have been trying for years to fix it, but THQ never did respond back, so everything is in limbo.

Dev wrote on Jan 24, 2013, 11:51:
It offers a money back guarantee if they can't get the IP. $50k goal seems a little low, but what do I know about bankruptcy and auctions.

Says that the THQ auction is in multiple rounds, and one of the next ones will sell off additional assets such as homeworld.

Anyone ever heard of this Rob Santos?

Edit:
Hmm, looking over it closer, they won't even give out the homeworld 3 game to contributers unless they get $750k, which seems kinda high. They plan to release original series for free though if they hit $100k.
Not exactly encouraging me to donate here.
They'd have been better off if they SOLD the original series for a very low amount, and gave free copies to donors on this campaign.

Do they not know that Relic already released the source code to Homeworld? What is missing is a clear license for the said source code. Would also be cool if THQ just released the whole thing as freeware.

"We love you, Halo 2 PC, and you will live forever in our hearts"

What they really meant to say is:
"Pa, take them out to the back and put them out of their misery!"

Encore? Hmm, sales a little flat from all the lackluster repeating offers?
You can say that again. Amazon and other places had games cheaper than steam almost all the time.
Way too many repeats with higher prices on steam.

How 'bout a free DLC that gives the game a better ending? I liked RAGE for the most part, but the ending sucked IMO. There was no kind of final battle or anything and the closing video was really short and uninspiring..
What ending? They ran out of time, and they released a unfinished game.
Now, they want $$$ for this ?

pass.

Just what is so good about steam's sales ?
Not much.
Amazon has many of the titles that steam has for much, much cheaper.
Like they recently had Prototype 1, 2 & DLC for $8. Steam's "sale" for prototype 2 is $20. (And yes, most games are steamable)

Is the site to check for who has best sales.

TLC NAND isn't the real problem. The problem is there is a big problem with 840's bricking themselves.

All anand's units died on him, and also 4 out of 4 died according to a thread at Hardocp.

I expect DX11.1 will suffer the same fate as DX10.1. No developers will actually use it.

Maybe now they will all start to switch to openGL, that doesn't have such limitations, and you can use the latest openGL features all the way back to XP, assuming the drivers / hardware support it.
