News Comments > DOOM 3 Source Patent Issue

I believe id included eax support so they wouldn't have to pay creative for a license to use the zfail method.

It's really crappy that creative got a patent on that when they aren't even in the 3d graphic rendering biz.

News Comments > Stardock's DRM Goo

Wow, they still just don't get it. I don't mind having to enter a serial number to play a game online, but there's no way in hell I'm going to pay for a computer game that requires activation just to play single player mode. I am a firm believer of paying for games you enjoy. I really want to purchase Mass Effect for PC even though I've finished it on 360 several times, and I really want to play Dead Space for PC, as well, but unfortunately I cannot due my absolute disagreement with the restrictions placed on their licenses.

Guess I'll be sticking with MMO's and QuakeLive for an indefinite amount of time now.

As sad as it is, gear progression is what most people play mmo's for.. including myself. Though there are some games that actually have storyline progression along with gear rewards, such as Final Fantasy XI.

News Comments > Stormrise Vista/DirectX 10 Only
73. Re: Stormrise DX10 Only Mar 4, 2009, 20:18 beigemore
 
This is great news. I've been running Vista64 on both my laptop and desktop for about a year now and have absolutely loved it. I really hated Vista at first because I had to deal with my customer's issues of incompatibility, etc, but now since it has had time to grow, I've had a big change of heart.

It runs faster than XP ever did, it needs much fewer reboots, it's unbelievably stable, and all of my software works with it. I can definitely say I will never go back to XP.

It's really time for everyone to just move on. People complain about their 8 year old OS losing support, but it can't be supported forever. It's like people refusing to run games in Win95 and were sticking with DOS when Win95 was first released.

Wow, a lot of complainers here...

You guys could just buy an Xbox and then you wouldn't have to worry about if your gaming system will get DLC or not. I don't own either system, but if all the features/etc are going to one system, it'd make sense to get that system and not get your panties in a ginormous wad.

Well yeah, that totally refutes the point that Best Buy is still selling them.

They aren't aware that the game servers are down, and probably don't care. I'd guess the games have been sitting on the shelf for a long time now. Not everyone follows video game news.

News Comments > DirectX 11 Preview
56. Re: DirectX 11 Preview Feb 1, 2009, 22:25 beigemore
 
I've been running 64bit Vista on my desktop and my gaming laptop for about a year now and I can easily say that I'll never go back to XP. I've had zero issues with either computer, and all games have run amazingly well.

Anyhow, I think it's silly for people to keep complaining about XP starting to lose support for certain things. They can't support it forever. They've got to force a change eventually. It's similar to the HD signal switch over for TV's. People have known about it for at least a year because they've been spamming the commercials on the over the air channels, yet some people still haven't purchased convertors and they will act surprised... they just need to switch and get it over with.

I played AOC when it first came out during the trial period. I don't think this is a bad move for them. Final Fantasy XI only has around 20 servers and it's got a very strong community behind it, so this will probably only make things better the people that already enjoy the game.

The same thing happens in Final Fantasy XI when they release new classes... almost EVERYONE starts to play them... however, it isn't as bad as in WoW since you use the same character and can change your class whenever you feel like.

News Comments > Game Price Cut "Warning"
40. Re: Game Price Cut Dec 23, 2008, 19:34 beigemore
 
I don't understand why games cost the same now as they did 20 years ago considering inflationary pressures. Games today often have a lot more content these days too. Considering production values have gone up a lot, I'm surprised these game companies can stay afloat.

They're moving MANY more units now than they ever were 20 years ago.

Also, with console games at $60, I find that I very rarely buy them and tend to stick with smaller purchases on XBLA. $50 is definitely more palatable.

Sands of Time is a great game, but it plays much better on a console..

I don't know why, but when I see THQ, I always think of low quality/boring NES games like Fun House...

I recently quit this game. I played it since the US release on PC and had seven jobs at level 75. The storylines and cutscenes in this game are great.. it just takes so freakin' long to get anything done, though. It was a great game when I didn't have any real schedule, but now there's no time for it and WoW fits in better.

News Comments > It's Good to be the Lich King
14. Re: It's Good to be the Lich King Nov 20, 2008, 14:57 beigemore
 
I just started playing WoW a few days after the new expansion was released. I've spent a lot of time on Everquest 2, and years on FFXI. FFXI is typically considered very difficult due to the amount of time it takes to make any money or even level up, and while it is definitely true, I have to say I'm really enjoying WoW. I'm not sure what it is, because the formula is the same as all the other MMO's I've played, but it just has some quality about the world it's in that I like.
