Additionally, while the tech was awesome ...
Yes, totally. Highly detailled models and beautiful landscapes. But seeing highly detailled models beside some grayish-brownish very-low-res wall textures and ugly voxel blobs which probably are some kind of boxes ... Megatexture is fine for rendering landscapes. It does suck monkey balls when you use it to render everything else.

So what is the verdict on Torchlight II, seeing as it's on a Flash deal?
Very fast, very neat ARPG. The Art Design is a deal breaker for some people, but the gameplay itself is nearly flawless. Longevity: MP, different & distinct classes, lots of additional content via Steamworks (new textures, new classes (right now i'm playing a rebuild of the WoW Paladin), maps and new story lines.

Get it!

You know your collection of games is nearly complete ...

... when a Steam sale comes and you calmly make plans for other things to spend your money on.

Like the Nordstrom anniversary sale that starts next week?
You know your days of collecting games are over, when your spouse says: "Awwww, that will fit perfectly to XYZ! And besides, you already have enough games you haven't even touched!" "True, but ..."

Now that the technology seems ironed out..
Yeah ... seems. I still have very, VERY detailled models standing next to some blurry texture blobs, which should be, i dont know, boxes? Very inconsistent performance. I still need a very powerful machine to get textures which are only sligtly more detailled.

Compared to the latest CryEngine or UDK, idtech 5 is crap, utter crap. A proof of concept of a certain idea, yes, but not something you might use to make games.

Probably better off just emulating the original disc with ePSXe, will look and sound better.
Not just probably. While you can crank up the visuals, its the sound & music that makes an emulated PSX version far superior to the PC version. And we're talking Nobuo Uematsu sound & music!!

And it doesnt require any online connection/account thingy. Just play.

One would assume that after the failure of DX10 to boost Vista ... bahh, it's Microsoft. If you fail, change nothing and try again until the investors are getting very, very angry.

There is.
At id? No. There is no decent game design talent at id since (including) Doom 3. Tim Willits may be nice guy, but he is not a very good game designer. Or he is, but his work is constantly mutilated by Carmack and others with "suggestions" he had to implement.

Doom 3 suffered heavily from bad game design (it took Willits nearly ten years to admit, that there was "something" wrong with it) and Rage was one hell of example for destroying a perfectly good setting with inconsistent level and game play design.

They removed the DRM restrictions? Fine. But that doesnt rectify all their lying and arrogant behaviour towards their customers. These are still the same people with the same clusterfucked mindset.

Titanfall: How no one cares but will still make a billion dollars

I'm not so sure if they can repeat the success of CoD. I'm not convinced that Destiny will be the new Halo for Activision. People want CoD, not some other game like CoD, only with mechs and lasers.

Sony really gave it to Microsoft sans lube last night, I haven't seen an owning like that since the last time I watched Sepharo beat up my server in CS.
And the really funny thing is ... people are excited about the PS4 not about something special Sony might have done, but because Microsoft so utterly, utterly fucked up their own product.

Farcry 1 multiplayer is probably my favorite of all time. People said that it sucked because it was different from COD and people didn't want to learn it and have to suck again. That's the only possible reason because it was tight as hell.
The failure of FC1 MP was not its gameplay, but its utter lack of support. Crytek blamed it on Ubisoft, but they showed that they are not able or not willing to make a decent MP for their games.

I tried out the multiplayer and there was about 6 games that actually had people in them and none of them were full.
Crytek burned people good with the MP in Far Cry. Since then its always the same ... no one plays, no one cares. At least on the PC.

  • Has any console come back from the dead to become an "overwhelming success"? Where's the historical precedent for this?]
  • The PS3. Not only declared Dead on Arrival, but being clearly dead for two or three years after it's release. Nowadays, the PS3 sells very good and is responsible for making the entertainment division of Sony one of the few profitable divisions of this company. Overall, the PS3 is still a loss, considering it's very high dev and marketing costs.

    The really sad thing ... we're talking about virtual economies. You dont have to suffer "inflation" or such. You have everything at your disposal to counter these developements. Games are a PARADISE for modern business scientists, where you can explore and influence every notion and motion an economy makes.

    But looking at recent events, all i see is video game companies with no knowledge on how to manage virtual economies. Heck, even Blizzard, with all the money to afford a whole staff of economists ... they just stood there and let it all fall apart.

    Yep that would be my guess. I imagine a new Total Annihilation, which could be kind of cool, although to be fair I couldnt get in to the last one, what was it called Supreme Commander 2 right? Kind of sucked...
    SC2 wasn't that bad on its own. But compared to its predecessor ...
