Huh? Sins of a Solar Empire is 3D, so is Homeworld

Sins is played only on a 2D plane. Homeworld is the first "true" 3D RTS. In Homeworld, you play in SPACE

I think NCsoft is paying digital distribution sites like these to put Aion on top.

No. People actually buy this. Aion started and nobody can play, because of long-hour waiting for a free server slot

But this will probably end like AoC. People are hyped now, but end up playing WoW again after the relase of Cataclysm.

IP law is seriously fucked up.

It is. And the answer to that? Ignore it. A quick search reveals a dozen swarms with approximately 300-400 users. And that was only a very rough Bittorrent search.

But as long as angst and paranoia are dominating the minds of the industry, this will never change.

News Comments > The Witcher 2 Leaked Video FAQ
2. Re: The Witcher 2 Leaked Video FAQ Sep 23, 2009, 12:40 Kajetan
 
Please don't dumb-down the PC version to make the game palatable for consoles.

If CD Project does not want to develop TWO games, they have to. If you go multi-plattform, you have to dumb down the PC version, there is no other way. A controller is no keyboard, so you have to adapt the interface and adapt the gameplay, make it playable for console gamers.

What i don't understand ... the GH and Rockband games require an additional controller. So, why not say to the console gamer: Look, if you want to play this on your PS3, just spend a little more, because we got you this nice little USB keyboard and mouse. Have fun! Yes, i'm sorry, but you have to put a table in front of your couch. But look, we've included this nice little IKEA coupon. Go on, buy a nice, little table, have fun with our game!

But if they want to develope Witcher 2 only for the PC, fine with me, hehe!

Yapp, and another hype will die very quickly and people WILL get back to WoW, as always.

Three colleagues of mine, long time WoW players from the very first beginnings, have left Age of Conan after only two months. They have left Warhammer and they have left other MMOs like Runes of Magic. The only game, that caught their attention for a while was Guild Wars. And what do they play now? WoW of course, because now they have children and families and responsible jobs. They spend their leisure time with games, they know and now WoW is PERFECT for their new time schedule.

I guess, they will try Aion, but not for long ...

News Comments > Jedi Knight Games Rereleased
28. Re: Jedi Knight Games Rereleased Sep 16, 2009, 21:19 Kajetan
 
As in Outcast? That sucks!

No, as in Jedi Knight: Dark Forces 2. And THAT sucks, because i too was hoping, that a) this Steam version is playable on modern systems and b) has everything, the normal retail version has, inclusive the soundtrack, exclusive the on 64bit-systems non-functional 16bit-installer from the disks

Addendum: Reverting to an older Nvidia driver (186.18) fixed the graphic problems. Now i'm looking for an old driver, which summons the missing cd audio soundtrack

good luck trying to get Dark Forces 1 to run on vista 64

Steam uses DOSBox for this game. OF COURSE it will run on Vista64. But you might want to "optimise" the default dosbox.conf. Valve does suck in writing a good default config. But on the positive side, they pre-configured the controls to a modern WASD layout and mouse look (horizontal).

Edit: But ... Jedi Knight 2 is a horrid ripoff. No CD music, a buggy software mode and if you want hardware acceleration for the graphics, just put an old GeForce card or similar in your highend, multicore computer. I just asked Valve for a refund ...

So Steam is still the place to buy EA games, then.

If you want to have TWO different DRM systems in your game, then yes, Steam is the place to buy EA games.

Err ... using the old "Unseen" mech designs in the trailer was NOT a very smart descision. There are new, trademark free variations of Warhammer, Marauder & Co. They should have used them.

But, as an old Mechwarrior fan, i appreciate this trailer. It's always good to see the classics.

Which really begs the question, if modders can make it so much better in a day or two, why the hell didn't Bethesda do it before they released it?

Why should they? People keep buying their games, modders fix their laziness and mistakes ... why the extra effort?

For all the people that "whine" about the game changing, they need to re-release the original content, with an updated UI, updated models, higher resolution, modern OS support, etc

There is a reason, why Ubisoft released a remake from the old Settler 2, called "Settler - The Next Generation". They alienated the majority of the fan base with the new Settler games (which are basically standard RTS games with a few "Settler" features) and made good profit from this remake.

When making sequels, stick to what a series has already established, evolve that carefully, if you have to, but DONT force innovation on the gameplay just for the sake of innovation. Just look, what Bliizard did with Diablo 2 and what they will do with SC2 and D3. A few meaningful changes, a major graphic overhaul, but the rest is left untouched.

I hear all you need to do is install 7zip.

Yes, that's all you need. Open the archives with 7z, use your account name (used to create the archives) as the password and extract the files wherever you like. Start the game with the "game.exe". Delete folder, after you had it with the game.

Not perfect, but you don't need Impulse to use your archives.

News Comments > EA VP: Germany Should Drop USK "Censorship"
18. Re: EA VP: Germany Should Drop USK Aug 25, 2009, 06:22 Kajetan
 
Oh, BobBob ... and that is why we are doomed to repeat the mistakes of our fathers over and over again. We make complex situations simple, because we don't want to think, WHY these things happen. Is "Germany started WWII" correct? Yes! But this answer is incomplete. You HAVE to consider the reasons, why it all started, to prevent further incidents.

Why was Iraq and Afghanistan invaded? Because these fucking terrorists bombed the WTC! Right, but incomplete. Why have they done that? Because the US government is an ally to dictatorships in Egypt and Saudi-Arabia. And to Israel. Terrorists (or freedom fighters, seen from the other side) attack the USA to force an end to US engagement in this region.

And so on, and so on ... ALWAYS ask, why someone does this or does that. If not, don't complain, if you find yourself suddenly, for example, in a war.

Why bother with censorship in games? Games can be imported, games can be downloaded. Only dumb children can't get their hands on these kind of games. I couldn't care less about this ...

I put my energy in the fight against censoring free speech, against goverment attempts to gain more control of the internet. THIS is important. Blood or boobies in games are only a minor, minor aspect of the greater picture.

...support for DX10 or DX11 has not been integrated.

Hmmm ... is that "has not YET been integrated" or "will NOT be integrated at all"?

did developers suddenly forget how to create server browsers or netcode or something?

This "special" alzheimer disease corresponds directly with the amount of money, Microsoft is paying the devs and/or the publishers for them using GfW LIVE.
