News Comments > BioShock PC Demo Nears
24. Re: No subject Aug 13, 2007, 13:58 Cabezone
 
I noticed almost immediately the low res textures on everything, it's something I tried to point out to the Gears fanboys to little effect. It the one thing that has always bothered me about consoles, the extreme lack of memory for textures. Most console games use a lot of blurring/post processing effects to shine over this problem.

If you ever compare the screenshots of the new Oblivion textures to the shit ones it shipped with, you can see how much they have to compromise for consoles. I doubt Bioshock ships with better textures for the PC.

It's not enough to seriously detract from my enjoyment of the game though.

Add to the list, truly high speed play. A lot of people say CoX is fast, but it's only quick in comparison to other MMORPGs. Granted the combat isn't as quick as a tactical shooter, but you can dispose of enemy groups very quickly, especially if you're a grenadier.

Crysis will be a good game because Far Cry was a good game. I don't think anybody thinks it's going to be revolutionary in any sense except maybe graphics.


Tabula Rasa is heading towards being released unfinished. The only thing unique about it is it's fast paced combat and eventually they will have capturable enemy bases working. Other than that it's pretty basic. That being said, I rather enjoy it and will be preordering it. I wish more MMORPGs would have the speed of combat this game has.

I also think that the game Garriott wanted to make didn't work out and they retooled to this just to get something out the door.

BTW crouching behind cover can reduce the damage you take by up to 75%..or 50% I can't remember the max. Just crouching in the open increases damage output.

I've always wanted to see one also. I'd actually like to plan a trip around one, but they get delayed a lot so it'd be a crapshoot.

Blue, that newstarget site is garbage hippy alternative medicine pap. It's loaded with fake science and I'm hoping your readers realize it. That sunscreen article is amazingly off base. Just read the "about me" on the site. Here's some key quotes:

"the vast majority of all diseases can be easily prevented and even cured without drugs or surgery."

"Real cures exist right now for diabetes, cancer, heart disease, depression, osteoporosis, and many other so-called "diseases.""

He's doing it because the studio had it in his contract that he was not allowed to do the final editing and they drastically changed the tone and ending of the movie. A lot of first time directors do not have full control over their early works. Once they become famous the studios can make more money off a director's cut version and allow them to make the version they wanted. If I was a director I'd do the same thing.

Do you think Picasso would be happy if he turned in his work to the gallery and they painted over some shit to make his work more pleasing to the audience?

What's he's actually saying is that they push the perception that you NEED one of those cards to enjoy PC gaming. What he wants is for people to realize that they can have a good experience with one of their cheaper cards.

Right cause all of the other devs are so honest about their games.

I can see the press release now: A pretty good mishmash of a FPS with some AI problems.

Dude, there is no earlier work for it to be a prequel of. If in the Painkiller time line it is after the original Painkiller it is a sequel by definition. If another ones comes out after it that'll make it a sequel to this one.

Does the PC version include the countless mods that actually make it the PC version?

Hey I remember that, great game. Although I didn't know it was remade, I played it back in 88 or so. Man that was a long time ago, I was only 11!

That's the version I played.

From what I read part 2 is pretty much a glorified expansion pack.

The game seems to be a very casual relaxing type of game. Might be kinda fun, but I don't expect my brain to have to do much work.

I read some mroe that the two systems are almost seperate. You can play the combat as wholly turn based or real time. They did not go into any detail as to how the real time part works, but did mention that action points regen slow during real time and i's better to stay turn based if you want to use them. I do not think that bullet tiem ala Payne is a correct description of it.

A dev also posted that the scaling info is not quite correct, but refused to say anything other than that.

I doubt that the license covers using the stuff however they choose. They are probably very specific to each application.

I really wish people would not call it "free" health care...it's not free you paying for it with taxes. It would be "free" to the people in the US who do not currently pay taxes, so it's just another way to redistribute wealth.

Sweden is not a great example of how to do it either. You have to wait up to a year for things you can get inside of a month in the US.
