Is it really necessary?

Are you working in the Blizzard accounting? If not, it's none of your business.

This is quite an inventive means to combat piracy

This has nothing to do with "fighting piracy". This is all about winning new customers, because ... you cannot fight software piracy

Brad Wardell from Stardock was one of the first industry CEOs to speak that truth out loud. The one, who leeches your game and doesn't pay for it, does NOT matter. Simply ignore him. But he matters at that moment, he becomes a customer after purchasing your game. And he does that, because you make an excellent offer to him, not because you think, you have forced him to this purchase.

However, given that everybody told me to steer WAY clear of Overdose

It's not THAT bad. It's not just as good as painkiller. Mostly because the level design is too small. Painkiller had it's moments, when you fight hordes and hordes of enemies in vast, over-the-top architecture. The level design of Overdose however ... small. Like in the days of Quake. Small corridors and rooms. Open areas not as wide arenas but as small rooms without the walls.

Seems only the open world games give a decent amount of gaming time nowadays.
Open World = throwing randomly generated missions at the player, so that he can make his own "campaign". It's faster, it's cheaper, it boosts profit.

Malazan, read it

Yes, Erikson comes close in making something refreshingly new. It's not THAT new, but it reads as new. He too borrows from myths and history, but he borrows and combines all these parts in an entertaining, clever way.

News Comments > Digital Distribution to Reign by 2013?
12. Re: Digital Distribution to Reign by 2013? Oct 7, 2009, 13:20 Kajetan
 
If this happens, if digital sales will overtake retail/boxed sales, we will also see a drop in sales overall.

Right now, you buy a game, you play it, you sell it and salvage part of your initial spending to buy NEW games. But as most digital sales plattforms prohibit (or do not encourage) to re-sell your licences, you end up having LESS money to buy more new games. So, you will buy LESS new games, unless somebody waves a magic stick and more money appears out of thin air on your bank accounts.

"Hey, let's destroy the used game market, because it hurts us in some way we cant prove, but assume, that it have to be so, because we say so!"
"Yeah, great idea! Let's do that!"

Morons ...

There's certain design philosophies to the universe, particularly the xenomorphs, that the art "got wrong"

And you know that, because you know precisely what every piece of art was intended for?

It couldn't be worse than Transformers 2! So, why not?

But i would prefer, if people would continue with the Neon Genesis Evangelion LiveAction movie. I would prefer Michael Bay NOT being the only one with enough production dollars to bring giant mechs and robots on screen.

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 ...

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 ...
