I don't remember playing the 2nd, but comparing the first linked video to this one makes me think the 1st was probably better.

yeah it was better. and looking at that video it's held up pretty well (in an old school kinda way). the pedestrian sprites have charm. compared to the obviously dated 3d meshes from the sequel.

i remember massive lans with c1 (massive as in 8..or however many players were allowed). alternating quake 1 and c1.

I really like Shogun 2 but in finishing the campaigns I fought only a handful of realtime battles, usually those I knew needed some "care" to win where autocomplete couldn't do the trick. Sengoku will be perfect for me since I'm really only interested in the strategic side.

What made Carmageddon for me were the violent 2D sprites. The failed follow-ups were 3D right? Neither myself or any of my friend's bothered
with them. Looked like Virtua Racing.


Anyone remember POD Gold? A weird sci-fi racing game I played to death. Wish that would get a revival.

I don't want money, nor do I like it. I may require it, but it's not important in my life. I'm long past my juvenile consumption for consumption sake materialism. Sadly, most people never grow beyond it. In the next several years my goal is to get back to land and farm. Start doing some organig farming, some livestock and the like. In short, the simple life of honest work and some peace, quiet and space.

i guess farmers get up at 5am for the simple life of honest work, not because they need to pay bills. farming is very hard work. you need a good business sense. need to know how to work with money in addition to experiencing the quiet and space of vast tracts of cowshit.

you sound like a city slicker with some rather idealistic views

POS application.

Yeah I decided not to install it as it's Nvidia software and that generally means POS.

Need only look at the current control panel or that Ntune steaming pile of dung.

Software aside, the actual drivers seem fine so far.

So if I destroy 500 crates in Half-life 3 a little icon will pop-up on my FWENDS PC HURRRR informing them? Oh well as long as they 're still going to do good old fashioned SP then I guess such an idiotic soshill feature can be tolerated.

By the way dear gamers, where the heck did this "achievements" thing come from? I have never ever ever cared about a bunch of random external hoops that need jumping just for the sake of jumping. It's a joke that it's listed as a feature by developers. Who gives a damn about a row of stupid icons. And I'd like to pre-troll anyone who responds with "I actually like achievements yack" as being idiots, thanks.

Looks good. Never got into these games due to the lack of collisions between cars, although I realise that would mess up the premise..

I never got into either, L4D specifically only showed up the aging nature of the source engine and was a giant spam fest reminding me of 32 people on a KQP server back in Quake 1 days. Repetitive shit that.
Not sure I get what you are saying. L4D series has only 4 player co-op or two teams of 4 players for a total of 8 in vs play. Its actually a pretty big reduction in typical shooter team sizes.
The hordes of AI in the coop mode felt like hordes of players endlessly respawning on a small map in Quake. I wasn't referring to player numbers, rather the repetitive nature of the game.

This Kotaku story seems pretty damn thin to me. Too easy to read a whole lot of nothing into this. That said:

If they just drop Half-life though I will be disappointed. I also don't know how this can simply be about all their titles having coop campaigns. There's no way the SP can remain true SP in that context since you'd have to design the gameplay with mp in mind. Gordon Freeman running around with AI controlled coop placeholders? Hell just seeing the Freeman player model while playing coop with Freeman sounds like it's breaking that fourth wall thing HL always had going on. Not ever hearing Gordon speak as a design choice to keep the players believing they're actually acting out their own adventure rather than some game character.

Maybe the success of Left 4 Dead and Team Fortress 2 went to their heads. I never got into either, L4D specifically only showed up the aging nature of the source engine and was a giant spam fest reminding me of 32 people on a KQP server back in Quake 1 days. Repetitive shit that.

Doesn't anyone want to cater for the gamer who sits down in front of his PC just wanting to be immersed into a great SP experience? I rarely want to play with other people. I never play MMOs. I outgrew LAN'ing, along with it any need to masturbate myself into boredom with a bunch of kids hours on end on some public server in any title. Yet I've reached a point in my life where I have a stable income and have more money than ever to spend on games.

Portal exemplifies "gaming". You have hoops to jump through, there's an atmosphere, it's thought out. All these social networking, MMO gameplay, MP modes galore are substitutes for developers actually having to develop AI or any sort of actual gameplay - rather relying on players to create gameplay through interactions with one another. Usually limited to killing or other simplistic activities. Herd gameplay is for cattle and sheep.

The loading times have nothing to do with the source engine's age, it's that the maps are sized for the consoles and they likely weren't able to create separate resources for the PC. I'm reminded of this while looking at the low res console resolution loading screen 10 000 times.

But, like Dead Space, I can live with that because the game itself is good.

Did they ever fix all the problems of the engine?

I never played Blackshark enough to say how much it's improved, but A10 seems rock solid technically. Native 64-bit exe, no crashes so far and has run smoothly on my system. All seems really well put together.

Cool I'd love to buy it...
only not at the $40 price.
There is no other application that does what Fraps does as well as how Fraps does it. I was happy to fork over my $37 years ago and have never once regretted the purchase.

The lesser known Dxtory is a great deal better than Fraps. I legitimately own both apps. Much better FPS while capturing, and a great deal more encoding options on the technical side, eg distributed writing. Think it cost me about $40 too.
