Day 1 purchase if they don't include Origin. I know, wishful thinking.
People would dare to day 1 this after their pathetic release of the first game on PC?

It's a mediocre game, but you can get F.E.A.R. 3 from GMG today (Friday) for ~$3 with the coupon and daily sale...

After wasting $50 on FEAR2, $3 is about what I feel comfortable with.
It's peculiar how people will say "I'll wait until it reaches a certain level before I buy X average to bad game". Why buy it at all? Gotta have everything?

Yeah my comment wasn't specifically aimed at you just in general praise of current pc racing. I loved the old Papyrus Nascar games on my Pentium but don't live in the US and have never followed it as a sport, a lack of Nascar titles isn't something I'd pay attention to :\

Recently dug out my old Logitech wheel after buying Driver San Francisco on the steam sale, and putting down 10eur to access the Project Cars alpha program. Really impressed with pCars. GT for the PC, looks amazing. Driving is somewhere between arcade and sim. Driver San Francisco..meh a very nice arcade game totally marred by Ubisoft "features". Doesn't even support my wheel out of the box, requires a registry hack. The game itself is a very fun arcade open world racer (just like the original Driver games on PC) that looks and performs well (even if the graphics options are limited to the typical port "low quality" and "high quality" settings).

Simracing is one true PC gaming genre that's still alive and kicking in a serious way. Large communities, loads of mods etc. So many good racing series have been released over the last 5 or so years. It's almost taken over from FPS games if you're looking specifically for titles that push PC hardware and benefit from the multi monitor setups current gfx cards support natively. If you're into this genre (and probably turn-based WW2 strategies) you wouldn't have noticed any of the shift towards consoles.

Good news. Really liked Escalation. Great engine not compromised by console shanannigans and fast enjoyable gameplay. It'll be interesting to see how they handle airplanes. If they're not careful they could completely overpower everything else.

Damn straight. Not to mention firing people when they deny you access because you want to "snoop" something. Very depressing that laws even need to be passed to prevent it.

I've only been asked once about that and told them I don't use social media, text, etc. and even if I did it would be none of their business. I also told them that only a truly shitty employer would want to engage in such practices because they're afraid their employees would have nothing but bad things to say about them and why the fuck would I want to work for assholes like that? And I then walked out telling them to fuck themselves for wasting my time.

Loved the HG games. As a Quake player obsessed with speed this was my favorite mech series. Preferred it to Mechwarrior as the bots in HG were smaller and much faster.

PC gamers are about adventurous today as..console gamers. Ya'll deserve the current state of gaming you're always whinging about.

The PC guys back in 2002 who refused to play OFP because it was too "quirky" went on to migrate exclusively to consoles and call the cover shooter trend and regenerating health "progress". Ten years on not much has changed.

It's likely the mod development will continue as an open beta. Then at some point BI will wrap it all up with only the needed objects and terrains required by DayZ and release it as a standalone. My guess is by the time it's released standalone the fad will be over. They are very open though and it's doubtful the standalone version will be developed in a closed nature as a cash in. They have to be open. They don't have a real Q&A department and unlike most FPS that aren't indie and owned by large publishers, the devs actually require the community. For better or worst (quirky engine) this is how you get decent interesting PC games. Better than Crytek's\Epic\ID's closed "PC customers are the devil" system even if the overall quality of their products is held to a higher standard (for those goofy console players who only care about the superficial). Of course if BI could develop for consoles as an indie, they surely would But for now they need PC gamers.

Just about every single gamer out there has played it beyond the free month, and a huge majority will continue to play it for the foreseeable future.

ive never played it. not even for a free month.

im so rare and unique!

Same here. We must be a rare breed.

I haven't played it or any other MMO. Mostly because I think all users in those online only games captains.

News Comments > QuakeCon 2012 Keynote
10. Re: QuakeCon 2012 Keynote Aug 5, 2012, 06:48 Dmitri_M
Doom4 "when it's done" yet "we want to optimise our pipeline and get games out faster". That "when it's done" shtick is over now that they're owned by Zenimax. While I don't think deadlines are the issue with recent id titles (rather a lack of creativity) I don't see anything groundbreaking coming from id again. Sad really, the only reason I started playing games was id FPS titles. Crytek didn't produce anything with soul after Farcry 1, Epic have devolved their FPS titles into third person gamepad shooters and are now set on producing TF2 shooters for people who enjoy Pixar movies more than their kids, Valve are now a retail store and don't have the willpower to manage their staff to produce another HL, COD is ok but has no replay value and has become completely generic over the past few titles. Am I being overly negative, where are the new fun SP FPS shooters? These used to drive PC gaming. What drives PC gaming now? Console ports and Steam sales of indie games I guess.

Hey Carmack now that texture sizes and polycounts have hit their limit (consoles!), now that normal maps and real time shadows are passe, how about developing some imaginative physics and realtime animation systems for Doom 4 so that when I blow open a Cacodemon the sludge that pours out of the new buckshot orifice cakes the floor and causes the player model to slip hindering movement oh and along with excessive gore bring back the religious overtones and get Reznor to do a death machine 5.1 surround audio mix and don't be afraid to flood levels with horrific enemies rather than 3 or 4 that hop about and go to "cover" using pretend pretend AI and loop endlessly in A to B cycles rather concentrate on a real Doom game that takes us straight to a visceral gameplay PTS inducing hell I want to be able to blow Cyberdemons in half and hide inside their still pulsating guts using the meat as actual cover while 100s of Demons roar across a cavernous room towards my meat bunker.

News Comments > Dishonored Voice Cast
22. Re: Dishonored Voice Cast Aug 3, 2012, 19:52 Dmitri_M
As someone who enjoys games for gameplay sake I always have subtitles enabled during cutscenes so I can skim read and jump through the cheesy game storylines before the voice actor is finished - I don't care which actor is pulling a pay cheque to do a voice. That's cutscenes though, good voice acting during actual gameplay is always appreciated. Using recognizable names has little point outside of marketing purposes. The celebrity factor detracts from the experience for me. Why is Captain Picard in an RPG. Not that I play RPGs. Too much lame story telling. Too many hokey cutscenes to skip with too many celebrities dialing it in on some lame video game content.

If the port is well done, I'd pay the premium just to play with this with controls that actually work a damn. On-screen buttons and sticks on iOS are awful.
I have Gran Turismo 2 running on my android phone using a PS1 emulator with onscreen controls in "simulation mode" (albeit it's still on the forgiving end of driving games) and it's 100% controllable - about as good as a physical gamepad. If a mobile game doesn't control well with touch screen controls it's the developer's fault. No way would I pay a premium for this.

I think that video would like much better with sprite enemies. when I think ROTT..and Doom for that matter..I think awesome sprites. This trailer just looks like a bad mod from 5 years ago. If you're going to trade on nostalgia for an old title then find a creative way to make it actually look like the original. How about HD sprites?

It would confuse the hell out of kids if they saw sprites on their screen today.

I don't care.

Only people who can remember the original are going to play this anyhow. Especially after seeing that trailer..
