News Comments > Black Prophecy NA Launches

I had the beta, launched it this morning to hopefully update it to the NA release, and it connected but it still appears to connect to the beta site.

Nucas, did you get the download as part of registering for it or from a direct link?

I have not yet picked up LA Noire due to time constraints but after reading both this article and the original, I am severely disinclined to ever do so.

As far as GTA...the only one that I thoroughly enjoyed was Vice City for the reasons already mentioned. San Andreas was a bore and IV was just "meh" to me. Saint's Row I and II are more enjoyable to me because your actions in SR are consistent with the storyline from front to back. Also, the world is so much more enjoyable.

EVE has always tempted me but I always came away with the feeling that I was "playing" Excel with a different GUI.

Ideally, I'd like a Freelancer/Privateer MMO. I tried Black Prophecy but lord that was boring.

thats odd, my keyboard and mouse dont have a left trigger and a right trigger

But your mouse does have a left and right button which they've already said will be the control scheme on the PC.

Saints Row has always been a more enjoyable franchise to me than GTA since the release of San Andreas. I am quite happy that it is, in fact, nothing like GTAIV.

I am looking forward to it and hope to see my old friend, Johnny Gat, again.

Your a fuck nut dude, go find your Dads Gun and seriously do this world a favor...

Your educational system certainly didn't do you any favors.

I can't wait to play as a marine/colonist fighting off hordes of military/alien/rebel enemies!

That's SO awesomely original!

Since Cliffski posted this, let's use GSB as an example.

At its core, GSB is nothing more than a game of rock-paper-scissors with a GUI. That's it. The fact that I can pick ribbon scissors versus paper scissors is irrelevant as the type of scissors doesn't significantly impact the execution of the game's entertainment.

Because of that, I can play any rock-paper-scissors game for free on any of the hundreds of free Flash-based game sites out there.

Why would I ever pay money for that type of game?

On the flip side of that, I willingly ponied up the money for Miner Wars even though it is only in an alpha state. I want those guys to succeed and I want them to finish the game because there are few competing alternatives in that genre of game. To me, my money was better spent on something I want and that I could not get for free legally.

Now that's a great consolation. Hey maybe it's not even as bad as cancer huh?

Cancer has the possibility of being curable whereas a bad game is forever a bad game.

You want to go HDMI. Assuming your receiver supports HDMI or your buying a new one. Then you just need the video card, which you may already have since your reading Blue's News.

Please excuse my ignorance on this. Using HDMI to the receiver, can I pipe out only audio off the video card? It's an MSI 480GTX.

I used to use onboard sound and it did a very good job with a 5.1 system with those multicolored 1/8" jacks.

Then I moved to a receiver with a home theatre 7.1 setup and discovered that the optical out on my onboard audio only does stereo as confirmed by the board manufacturer.

Regrettably, I am now using a Soundblaster drop-in until I upgrade the whole system and find a board that supports 7.1 Dolby on optical.

The space sim genre does certainly need a revival. However, to me, it looked like a twitchy space shooter. No thanks, I'll pass.

I think if you looked at where gaming started, and what some of the popular contemporaries are these days, then yes, I'd call them "intelligent entertainment".


Hey! Nibbles is still a far more enthralling experience than your average Hollywood shovelware.

I guess I'm simple. When your product becomes so ridiculously difficult to use because you run your business based on fear, then I no longer need to use or purchase your product.

When your entire industry decides to go that route, and becomes personally inconvenient to me to use as a form of entertainment, I will just find a different source of entertainment. I understand that that I am in the minority but the most important thing about that minority is that you're not just losing one sale, you're losing an entire lifetime of sales.

I have come to embrace Steam because of that very idea. They make it easy for me to install the games I have purchased on whatever machines I wish so long as I am logged in to their system on only one machine at a time. I can live with that as I find that to be a fair and equitable trade. I used to be concerned with sometimes not being connected to a network but the offline mode makes that no longer an issue.

What a bunch of whiny prima donnas.

Total War: 5000BC.

That might be interesting.

Though I agree with a TW sci fi RTS. That would kick ass. Especially if the grounded it in real(ish) science fact.

I guess I'm confused.

Can someone please explain to me what all the hullabaloo is about?

How does the sexuality of a character interfere with the telling of a good story*?




It doesn't. So I learned while reading John Varley's "Ophiuchi Hotline" when I was a kid.
