Derek does his own sound samples. You didn't like them?

Ouch. Funny though.

I just wanted to give it a fair shake after all the well deserved ribbing he gets here at BN.

It's exactly the situation I figured it would be. An extremely mediocre product from someone who is clearly in love with his own beliefs in his genius and limited capability to create something.

In the somewhat likely event that he may show up in this thread, I don't have to be able to paint like Caravaggio to know that someone's stick figures suck.

I did not buy Angle of Attack but I did try the demo.

Wow...it was horrible. I felt like all I was doing was flying a camera with some whining/screaming noise coming out of the speakers. The weapon effects were almost cartoonish as I could literally see them being generated in the screen above the termination line of the bottom of the cockpit viewport.

It reminded me the old Terminal Velocity game...without any of the fun.

Wait for Ace Combat.

It is likely to be a better game.

The original H.A.W.X. sucked due to a bland storyline, bland villains and incredibly predictable gameplay.

I actually quoted Wash from Firefly during the second carrier mission; "Curse your sudden, but inevitable, betrayal".

I played Fallout 3 and Oblivion on my dual-core and nVidia 7950 GTX for hours with NO crashes what-so-ever.

Fanfuckingtastic for you!

I tried playing it on a quad core with my 8800GTX and it crashed like a motherfucker. This was after a full system wipe and clean OS install with just Intel chipset drivers and Beth's "recommended" Nvidia driver version.

Those of us who constantly crashed outnumbered people who allegedly never crashed by a factor of 100:1.

Also, were it a system issue, you wouldn't have seen some of the same behavior on consoles. As much as I love F:NV, all three major platforms have tons of videos out showing just how fucked up the engine really is.

Extremely unlikely. The last good Total War game was MW2.

I have been summoned to jury duty three times in the last two years.

I always say that I am related to three police officers and that I support the death penalty for even the lightest of offenses, including jay walking.

I have as yet to serve on an actual jury.

The only bug I've really run into is the Broken Steel quest, which got both the Elder and the Head Paladin stuck in a "come back later" status. Fortunately the wiki had the reset code, so I was able to progress beyond that.
Creston

Will you please share that link with the reset code? Christ, I've been going back and forth like Pavlov's dog trying to figure out what the fuck I am supposed to be doing.

Also, i don't like the iron sights much - as the weapons are so huge aiming down the sights is a pain as often the center mark covers the entire enemy and not all weapons have sights.

Never fired any sort of rifle from any decent range, eh?

Also, try turning up the resolution. I have no problems seeing target NPCs from ~50+ yards out with the Brush Gun and that has the most restrictive sight of anything in the game, with the Cowboy Repeater being the second worst.

Not angry, tired.

I left an MMO publisher because I realized that all they were doing was helping destroy the very hobby I love.

If you really look at it, MMOs are not games. They're endless systems of addiction. There is nothing to "win", ergo they can not be games.

No such animal. Might as well say that you're waiting to see unicorns, fairies and mermaids.

ALL MMOs suck. ALL of them. They're all grind, extermination and Fedex quests. Booooooooooring. Not one of them is deep, not one of them holds even the dimmest candle to a solid single player RPG.

Want to be social? Go the fuck outside. There are billions of people you can be social with. Want to keep the ability to pretend to be someone else? Go join a LARP group. It's no less of a social stigma than hearing someone talk about their "awesome" twenty 80th level characters.

Anybody else noticing odd white strobe effects randomly at night in the game?

Almost like fireflies but about five times as bright?

At first I thought maybe the GPU was overheat but Speedfan reports that it is working at 44C under load. Then I updated to the latest Nvidia drivers and saw it happen again.

Is it hard to just disable the monitors you don't want the game to play on in your driver's control center? It's really not that big an effort. Especially not so knowing the next patch will fix it.

Yes, yes it is. In fact, it's downright asinine to have to disable a monitor period when there are hundreds of games that run fine on dual, triple or quad monitor setups without a single issue.

Yet again, more examples of how inept and lazy the development team on this game was.

Fine whatever, but know that Gothic 4 is a big improvement over the unfinished bug-ridden Gothic 3 release. (although Gothic 3 is a good game with the recent community patches)


That's like saying the Ford Pinto was a great car after a shit ton of third party mechanics got around to fixing its problems.

It shouldn't take a "community" to fix a broken product and the developers shouldn't be rewarded for releasing a broken product.

Go dance with the angels, nin.

Also, can we get rid of the.slow.angsty.voice.overs.written.by.a.12.year.old.goth?

Love the game but I just started skipping through the cutscenes near the last half of the game.
