One can hope, anyway.
Hope alone does not bring gaming fun on MY table

And i quit "hoping". There is no hope concerning games. This is an industry, where games are being build according to target group analysis and feature comparison charts. Love and compassion has left this industry for good. There is a reason, why stupid, cheap, primitive, little indie games slowly gain more interest: They may not look pretty, but they are fun!

Agreed. They are hardly a small company anymore and Steam has grown into the biggest part of their business so TWO patch guys wouldnt be too much to ask
TWO??? Are you out of your mind? Whats next? Free beer delivery for every fifth Steam purchase?

And yet TF2 gets its constant stream of patches...
Sry, my bad. I was talking about the guy, who is responsible for updating all non-Valve games on Steam

We don't know why Steam is taking so long to update its version of the game
But we do. The patch guy at Valve is on vacation or ill.

That's why you're supposed to kill the Hunters *before* launching a ball at a Stalker
Which is good strategy for the first two attack waves, but the third one has way too many hunters and striders for my liking. Wasted too much time killing them (and aquiring new mines from the last undestroyed mine dispenser), the last surviving strider every time walked unharmed to the main base. But console commands can solve that mission design problem easily

If by wide-open you mean "there are three places where they will attack", and by fending off attacks you mean "Use a stupid carnival mechanism to attach bombs to a strider with your gravity gun, with its aim being so fucked you'll hardly ever hit anything, and while 877 billion Seekers (IIRC) are continuously destroying that ball the very fucking MILLISECOND it's attached to the strider without somehow miraculously blowing it up, AND being able to carry one ball at a time on your buggy, where you have to go into a house, grab it, put it on the buggy, release it, get into the buggy, drive somewhere, get out, grab the ball, shoot it at the strider, watch it get blown up by the seekers, swear, get back in the buggy, go back to the house, get another ball, repeat ad nauseum", then yes. It was an awesome set piece.
Oh, and do not forget, that you have to drive all over the map to an undestroyed house with an intact mine dispenser, making the time limit even more frustrating. Oh, oh, and one more thing: Why are there dozens of complete idiots aka resistance fighters, if they do NOTHING but run around and get killed by hunters or striders?

For the most part i enjoyed Episode 2, played it about three or four times. But this final fight is horrible, horrible, horrible. Skipped it every time. Enjoyed the pathetic ending and since then i am waiting for the conclusion of the story line in my patented Valve Time Capsule.

Easily one of the best set pieces of the entire HL series.
That i dont deny. But playing it was a pain in the ass. After six or seven failed attemps in stopping the last strider in time, i just opened the console and loaded the final "cut-scene" map. And looking at the achievement stats for Episode 2, i was not the only one having major difficulties with the final fight.

auto-cover.
auto-move
auto-play! Just sit back on your couch and watch a movie ... that'll attract the masses! The Modern Warfare SP campaign proves that people do not want to play anymore. They just want to watch nice scripting events.

Those times are long gone. The hardware race has slowed down considerably, because all major titles are multiplattform, the limiting factor being the 360 hardware.

Except Fallout 3, Oblivion and ME2 are more like action adventure games than actual RPGs.
ME2 an action adventure with some heavy RPG elements? Yes.

Fallout 3/Oblivion? No, these are RPGs. Like Baldurs Gate or the Gothic series or Might&Magic. Not very good RPGs in my opinion (too much boring open world with too little consequences, not enough straight story and quest advancement) but Bethesda does make RPGs

Slashman wrote on May 24, 2010, 10:52:
I generally agree. The problem is, of course, that it is unlikely that the directors and producers have ever played a video game in their lives and most certainly not the game they are making a movie of.
Remember the Wing Commander Movie? Directed and written by the guy, who is responsible for one of the best space flight games ever produced? Who directed all video sequences of WC3 and 4? Who else but Chris Roberts himself could make THE Wing Commander film? And than, i sat in the theater and couldnt decide if i should laugh hysterically or just leave after an hour watching one of the crappiest movies i ever had the "pleasure" to experience. Horrible! Chris Roberts may be THE Wing Commander guy, but he certainly isnt very good at making full lenght feature films.

And you know why the Lord of the Ring movies are so great? Because Peter Jackson is a) a very, very, very talented movie director and b) therefore he knew when to leave the source material and when to stay close. You want a game movie to succeed? Involve people, who know how to make good (!) movies.

Best movie-based-on-game? Definitely Silent Hill if you ask me.
If you ask me ... it's Final Fantasy Advent Children. The ultimate movie for fans of the game and genre. Does not even try to be a "serious" movie for non-fans of the franchise (main reason, why most game-to-movie production fail miserably). Just a fanboys wet dream come true.

Therefore Steam's stats on Bioshock 2 users are not an enumeration of how many people are actually playing Bioshock 2 online.
Nobody said so. But the non-existence in the Top100 list of Steam is a good sign, given the userbase of Steam, that Bioshock 2 might be not very popular with the PC crowd. Heck, there is even a "Knights of the Old Republic" in the high seventies, while no sale was around in weeks to boost the playtime of this game.

If Valve didn't have this limitation you could make full games (total conversion mods) using their SDK and release them for free.
See, and that was all to show. Valve does not want the possibility of this ever happening. Its their choice. Other devs and publishers have decided the other way around.

Imagine if all those Counter-Strike players never had to buy Half-Life because they could have just used the demo which came with mod running ability.
You already dont have to buy Counterstrike/HL to play Counterstrike. There are multitudes of free "hacked" servers and torrents providing the necessary game data. There is nothing more to gain for Valve in pretending that they control the way, people can use their games. Valve does not have any control at all. Just people, who freely permit Valve to control the games, they purchase on Steam, because they want to or because its not important to them.

Bioshock 2 uses Games for Windows Live for its multiplayer not Steam so check the GFWL popularity list to see if people play it online.
The Steam 100 list (http://store.steampowered.com/stats/) measures the overall (!) playtime, single and multiplayer, not only multiplayer. There are a lot of games in this list, which do not have any multiplayer features at all, like Torchlight on position 23.

What... A government that employed common sense?
No, not really They won the election last autumn, now they can afford to give some leeway to improve their standing with the younger generation under 30. I'm sure, next election period they are just at it again, spewing fear and pretending, that only THEY can protect the populace from hordes of violent children.
