It's immersive!
Using a stupid savegame system with few save points kills any immersion this game could ever produce.

I'm sorry, but in these kind of games, i want to save whenever I see fit to do it, not the level designer. I play the game, not some other person. I'm no longer a student. I work. I have family. My time management doesn't go well with save points.

News Comments > Kotick: Audience "Clamoring" for Subscription CoD

Why the fuck do I need to pay for a monthly subscription to Xbox live and additional online fees to play like this?
Because YOU and everybody else here at Blues is NOT the target group for this business model. This is for people, who bought the CoD DLC. Just look at the Steam charts. Plenty of people, who will do ANYTHING to play the latest and "hottest" CoD game. And they will gladly fork over their money. Gladly and willingly.

Console gamers nowadays will eat anything and everything without even blinking an eye.
Considering the huge commercial success of CoD on the PC ... you might want to rephrase that

Being capable doesn't mean being available. If the games you want to play are only availble via Onlive and its ilk, then you will either hop on board the bandwagon or be left out.
This i do not deny, but the only reason any publisher chooses Onlive (or others) as an exclusive channel is an outstanding success, proving that the consumer accepts this service. And THAT is to be proven first. And we are talking about a success and acceptance rate comparable to Steam. Which will take years, if it happens at all ...

Remember these services eliminate all the current losses from piracy and use game sales.
What "losses"?

When services like this become the only game delivery option ...
Why should services like this become the only game delivery option? I do not see anything to support this assumption. And why would anyone subscribe to Onlive and others, if their hardware is quite capable to play modern games. You know, the times, where you hd to upgrade every half a year to be able to play the latest PC games in all their beauty, these times are long gone. Why should anyone subscribe to Onlive, when the majority of US gamers play on the console? Who should subscribe to Onlive? What target group?

Yes, this business plan WAS written by chimpanzees. Smart chimpanzees, who managed to find some stupid investors and that is everything this "service" wants to be. A possibility for the founders to become rich and wealthy very fast, feasting on venture capital as long as it is available.

so if I ever want to ever play a game that needs no lag, I need a fully capable PC to play them on.
In which case....
Why dont I just buy the games I want and play them on aforementioend PC, rather than paying to rent games I've already bought through a third party?
Their business plan was written by chimpanzees.
So true. Thank you!

Steam is actually better because you have perpetual access to your games for no additional fees, whereas the physical media on which retail games reside is prone to degradation, loss or breakage. Not only that but you can't lose CD-keys. In fact I pity people like yourself who are tied down to the idea of physical media.
I handle my games carefully. Never i have lost a CD key or broke a CD nore a CD was unreadable because of negligence. And all my old floppy games are backuped on a hard drive, ready to use at any time i wish without the need of depending on third parties. I prefer independence over laziness. What you prefer is your descision.

I would not rely on the wellbeing of a company or their server infrastructure or the availability of internet access to play my games. But if you do, its your descision.

I don't know, I fear Civilization V will be a very dumbed down and consolized version of Civ IV.
There is already a console version: Civ Revolution. No need for another. Civ 5 is probably another "pure" PC game with the usual gameplay refinements.

But i'm more meh with the enforced Steam lock via the use of Steamworks. I prefer to buy games to own and not to rent for full price. That said, i'll pass, will wait for a major price reduction (under 10 ) and then i'll rent the game from Steam. As i learned over the years, patience IS a virtue

plus it makes me feel a little bit better about myself for saving a few trees.
Nowadays, there is nothing much to "save". Paper production heavily relies on recycling (90% and more). Trees for paper production are planted in special crop rotation forests, no "natural" forest is used.

If you like your Kindle, then go ahead, like it. But dont fool yourself into thinking, you're doing something good for the enviroment, if you use that DRM infected piece of crap

Mhh, Alpha Protocol showed that timed dialog is not only possible but makes sure you play your character and not always only the "best" option. Imo a good design decision and fun.
Timed dialogue is in fact quite nice, if used correctly. The one and only thing "Fahrenheit" aka Indigo Prophecy has done right

But CD Project wants to use QTE in certain boss fights to show off their model animation skills. In early videos, you can see the stupidity of that idea. You fight the boss the usual way and suddenly, the interface vansihes and you have no more control over your character. Instead, a predefined ingame sequence starts and you have to press some buttons in the order the game tells you. Just think Dance, Dance Revolution going medieval. If pressed correctly, the game shows you some finishing moves and the fight is over.

And THIS is stupid, because winning is no longer a matter of using the right sword skill at the right moment, according to your chosen skill tree, fighting style and enemy type (no, the combat system in TW1 is nothing like QTE). Its just a matter of being a good monkey, pressing the correct buttons without having to think anything.

Kajetan I hope you are wrong I really do because I would hate a console controller style interface for Withcer 2.
But you will probably get one.

CD Project wants to have its share from the console crowd. That's ok. Make a console game then. Like Firaxis did with Civ Revolution. Or Blizzard wanted to do with Starcraft Ghost. But in the process, they shit on their PC fanbase and that is unacceptable. A year ago, TW2 was an instant pre-order. Now, i expect the worst and will probably wait for a budget release or a Steam sale, if i didnt ignore it all together. You know, its just a game

Care to elaborate? I haven't been following this game much though I know it's supposed to be multiplatform.
First, the devs want to "enhance" bossfights with Quick Time Events.
Second, they want to "streamline" the combat and make it faster, less tactical, more simple button smashing.
Third, on the latest preview event, the devs showed parts of the game using a 360 controller, which is the main reason, why the interface and the gameplay has to be simplified and dumbed down. Not that console owners are dumb, but devs are too lazy to build two versions of the game, publishers to greedy to invest building two versions of the game.

TW2 will become "Invisible War 2" all over again!

Am i pissed? Hell, yes i am!

I really can not wait for this game. The first one was the most refreshing PC game I have played in years with the loads of watered down console ports pouring on the PC gaming scene.
Then you would like to know, that The Witcher 2 is probably to become a watered down console port. There are several previews, which indicate nothing good for the PC crowd.

Why? Because it does not interest me, right now?

No, really. It might be a nice game, but i am STUFFED with games i bought and want to play. There is no need for new games for months ahead. Perhaps even until the end of the year.
