Meanwhile, 24 million people bought and played GTA4, making it one of the most successful games of all time, and this trailer seems to offer more and better of the same.

I'm in.

Game development is mostly down to luck and the right circumstances. There are no "masters".

The last time I enjoyed Dirt was when it was called Colin McRae Rally.

Loving it, game has a great atmosphere.

It could do with a mouse sensitivity slider though.

My opinion on Prometheus and any attempt to remake Bladerunner..potential spoilers ahead:

Prometheus sucked... no one past the age of 10 cares about.

I'll not reveal your spoilers, but instead latch onto the bit above.

No one past the age of 10? Man, the departments of theology and philosophy in the University where I work are gonna be sooooo pissed...
These are not films about academics though, they're about scientists and soldiers dealing with challenges, trying to survive. It's unlikely to me that characters dealing with extremely dangerous alien life forms would first think about high concept themes like "creation" rather than first dealing with realities.

Prometheus sucked. The previous films were about survival, perhaps they hinted at larger questions related to mankind but they didn't bash us over the head with "creation" myths. The god question is a waste of time. You expect us to believe mega corporations in the future are run by people who sit around fretting about "meeting their creators"? It's one thing to hint at something larger, some awe inspiring mystery it's another to lay it bare and straight tell the audience oh yeah now we'll populate the story with characters obsessed with things no one past the age of 10 cares about. Bladerunner and the first two Alien films hinted at all kinds of themes regarding human nature, survival, what it means to be an individual (in Deckard's case) without needing to outright say it. That's what made those films great. Big concepts like creation suck the humanity out of the story and make the characters seem silly.

Most indie games don't even sell 500k copies. This guy, with a tiny team, sold more copies than most AAA games these days sell. He did it with no publisher taking a cut and extremely small overhead. He now has the means to produce something better. If this was a startup indie company, I could maybe excuse that because they need to start somewhere. But this guy has the finances and resources to do much better.


His hit game featured sandbox style gameplay. The players "created" the gameplay. What he's attempting here is much more conventional. He will be responsible for the gameplay, and he's already talking up emergent features. Something no one else has really pulled off.

This looks like a Shogo: Mobile Armor Division update to me. Not all good mech games are called "Mechwarrior". I preferred Heavy Gear to Mechwarrior because the mechs were smaller and faster. So I don't mind twitch Quake style play with Mechs at all. Over the top twitch gameplay is refreshing these days. Especially compared to all the "realism" based shooters flooding the market.

Every time a developer talks about emergent gameplay where things can go wrong in unexpected ways their title is either cancelled, delayed forever or is released with much simpler more traditional gameplay to the disappointment of gamers everywhere. Still, I hope they manage to pull it off. I'd play it. Right now though it sounds like high concept vapourware.

Oh and cutter once again proves in this thread that he's a slimy critter from planet fuckhead.

Yeah the previous gameplay only trailer made it look great. A sort of strange atmospheric Taxi Driver take on madness inspired massacres. The soundtrack in the previous video rocked too. 1980s were great.

Waaaah waaah 200MB. Stop whining. These driver packages support a vast array of features. There is no "inefficient coding" involved. You guys would shit bricks if they trimmed them down and cut support for a bunch of shit.

I don't give a damn about the size in mb, but NV's control panel has sucked ass for a long time. Slow, inefficient. Yes.

While I love this announcement what exactly will be flying it over? Eastern Europe? Heck, what sorts of missions can we do? Does DCS World feature AI soldiers we can assault with the door gun? I don't doubt this will be the best digitized Huey the simulation world has ever seen, but without the "theater" it feels half baked.

This is one of those games where you sit around talking about it thinking it would kick ass to have a medieval fps type game.

I don't think they've captured that vision technically with this game. You need to start off with a really good physics driven animation system, most likely something used in sports games. You then need to exaggerate physical movements to make the game fun and less "stiff" and reality based. You need settings and art direction that make you feel like you're in the heat of a great battle, no sunny hamlets that aren't even scratched without a rock out of place. It wouldn't hurt to have destruction capabilities for everything in the game. Laying siege to a castle with catapults hurling massive rocks to break down walls, battle rams smashing doors, poring hot oil down on people trying to assault with ladders.

maybe someday.

You want COD:Medieval?

Yeah, 1 click is a little TOO handy. I suspect it's the next book I'll grab...

I heard something about a section in the book where Jenna Jameson shows up to do her lines for Vice City, and brought her father. And then proceeds to do all her moaning/sexual recording in front of him...

More confirmation that female porn stars have serious daddy issues.

So should I pick up Anno 2070 now? Thinking2

Anno 2070 never had the always-on requirement. It uses Tages which has limited activations and I believe that's not going anywhere.

On their official forum the developers claim the activations reset to their original total each month.

News Comments > Black Mesa Source This Month

Having worked on a mod that wasn't finished I understand how things just take forever with these things. You have people who aren't being paid work on something after hours while juggling real life. Their interest in the project often wanes.

The issue is when you make promises too early to the community. There's an ego component. In my own experience I tried to get the mod members to create at least an alpha of what we intended to do prior to announcing it. Of course everyone got ahead of themselves, hyped it and found themselves besieged by demands from an understandably eager community. Somewhere a long the way development of the mod just faded out leaving a lot of annoyed community members. You kind of have to expect this sort of behavior from the community. I don't think the complaining is justified, it's just the way people behave and can be expected.

Blah. I thought the OnLive deal would consist of you getting keys or download links or something. Didn't realize you had to use their shitty service to play them.
Why would a cloud service offer download links?

It's a stupid business idea. Certainly for people like myself who don't have access to decent internet connections. Even ISPs in the US are replacing uncapped broadband with capped. This service is doomed to fail.
