ALL packages are "dropped". You ever seen a truck get un\loaded? Or work in a warehouse? Absolutley EVERYTHING is "dropped".
That's why it's configured to only detect drops above a certain threshold.

I've never even played any of the Tomb Raider games. Probably because I never had a problem getting girls IRL
Ha, the jokes in this topic are hilarious!

Tomb Raider was responsible for every computer enthusiast to buy ourselves a Voodoo 3DFX addon card, back in the day.
It was Half-Life (and to a lesser degree Quake 2) that got me to buy a 3DFX card and it was definitely worth it, as by that time the Voodoo2 and Voodoo Banshee had been released. I never cared for the original Quake, so I had no need for the original Voodoo card. It was around that time I upgraded to a 17" CRT and considered it massive over the 15" I'd been using before.

I'm looking forward to it. I really enjoyed the previous games and when I saw it discounted to 17.55 / $28 on GMG I figured it was worth taking a gamble on.

I liked the new Star Trek as a movie on it's own, but it's a Star Trek blasphemy. They totally destroyed the previous Star Trek legacy. It barely has links, other than character names. It's a dumbed down mindless explosion fest.
As a Star Trek fan - having watched every episode of every series and every film - I completely disagree. Alternate universes are already established canon and doing so gives him the freedom to reinvent the franchise without contradicting existing canon. The lens flare in the film was terrible but overall it was a compelling new addition to the franchise.

As for a Half-Life movie by JJ Abrams, that would be better than giving it to a nobody director. I really liked Fringe (earlier seasons), Lost and Star Trek, so to me it sounds very promising.

No, no it isn't. Political correctness is why you can't make hiring or firing decisions based on race or gender. Political correctness is why one one of the UK's big 3 political parties no longer uses the slogan "If you want a nigger for a neighbour, vote Liberal or Labour" (them being the other 2 big parties at the time). Political correctness is the ideal of considering others' feeling and not being an asshole. When someone (usually a newspaper columnist who considers that political party to be a bit 'soft') uses the phrase "it's political correctness gone mad", that's code for "now when I'm a bigoted asshole, people call me out on it". This is nothing but a very good thing.

This garbage isn't political correctness. This is stupidity, with a large hint of repressed racism.

I assumed that this project was dead but it would be nice to see it released. Let's hope this isn't a wind-up.

As I said, to me the experience that consoles provide is unacceptable. Consoles have: upto 77.5% few pixels than a single-monitor setup or 86% fewer than a multi-monitor 1200p setup; lower resolution textures; half the framerate; no / poor anti-aliasing; longer loading times; limited input devices; no 3D, hardware tessellation or hardware physics, etc. We're not talking about a slight difference here. Even the next-gen consoles won't be able to compete with top-end PCs now.

Wow, they managed to fuck that up good and proper. The game will be drowned out by all the hype of the next-gen consoles, which will already be out by the time a PC release appears (if it even does). The lack of gameplay footage is just the nail in the coffin.

Then again, those who game on consoles are happy with 720p @ 30fps with shit graphical quality and gamepads... so I'm sure they'll be lining up to buy it. Gaming on console is like listening to all your music on cassette tape... it's fine if that's all you can afford but some of us have higher standards.

News Comments > BioShock Infinite 'City in the Sky' Trailer

I have a feeling that after games like Dishonored, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Borderlands 2 and Far Cry 3 that this game is going to feel very restrictive and linear. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy linear / restrictive games when the gameplay is right - I really enjoyed the original Bioshock, Half-Life and Metro 2033 - but there's something that doesn't quite seem right about BI. Hopefully I'm mistaken.

I admit the trailers look cool, but I'm really worried this game is more scripted than CoD...
Yeah, I definitely get that vibe.

In the original AvP you shoot the fucking alien it loses a few limbs, still keeps on coming...you empty a clip into it in panic it trashes around on the ground spraying you with acid and burning your ass...Now you shoot the alien and see a green splat. Yeah for green splats. And the speed of the fucking Aliens tailored for gamepads. Hooray for gamepads! Thank you Xbox and PS, thank you very fucking much!
It's not just the controller - most console games run at 30fps, which is terrible for fast paced games. There's an excellent video comparing DmC: Devil May Cry on the PS3 @30fps with the PC @60fps and it reminded me exactly why I don't care for console gaming.

And yeah, the original AvP was excellent and the even the multiplayer was well done. The aliens movement was probably the best the series has seen, even though it's so old. I didn't care for AvP2 at all. AvP 2010 had a decent engine but everything else was a disaster (even though I really tried to like it).

This game looks like it's going to be a trainwreck. The graphics are worse than Aliens Versus Predator, which was released three years ago. And I've seen no indication that the PC version is anything more than a basic port; even the Wii U version seems to be getting more attention.

What was wrong with the art direction? I thought it was great, almost like a painting. Definitely unique and refreshing.
It was completely out of character for the PoP universe and all the textures were horribly washed out and bland, while the black outlines looked terrible. It was certainly different but had nothing on other stylised games like TF2.

Jerykk wrote on Jan 30, 2013, 03:16:
As for supernatural "nonsense," not sure what you're on about. ALL of the PoP games have had supernatural elements, including the original PoP where you fought skeletons.
It was just so over-the-top. If the game had a different name then nobody would have even spotted that it was supposed to be a PoP game.

Jerykk wrote on Jan 30, 2013, 03:16:
In terms of writing, how was PoP 2008's protagonist any more whiny or infantile than the SoT protagonist? The SoT prince wasn't exactly a beacon of maturity and sophistication.
PoP 2008 was based entirely around one-liners and childish humour, which was incredibly grating. It was significantly more infantile than the previous games.

Jerykk wrote on Jan 30, 2013, 03:16:
The real issues with PoP 2008 were the overly simplified platforming mechanics and the QTE-infested combat. Fix those two issues and you have a great game.
You can have that game but just keep it away from the Prince Of Persia franchise.

Sands Of Time was the highlight of the modern games.

Prince Of Persia 2008 was train wreck - terrible art direction; whiny annoying American prince; supernatural nonsense; infantile humour, etc. It had absolutely nothing to do with the Prince Of Persia brand.

The Forgotten Sands was alright but obviously not enough to keep the franchise alive.

I can't say I'm surprised to see the franchise on hiatus but it's probably for the best.

News Comments > Crysis 3 Open Beta Begins; Tutorial Video

Finally got SLI working - I had to manually add the .exe file to the Crysis 3 profile with nVidia Inspector. Performance is superb, maintaining 60fps with the default anti-aliasing (SMAA low, I believe - the one up from FXAA). I tried TXAA on medium but performance was terrible (about 35-45fps). Overall it seems smoother than Crysis 2.

SLI doesn't work for me, so performance is poor. I'm running the latest nVidia drivers for Crysis 3, so I really don't know what the issue is this time.

As for the intro video, I hate pre-order bonuses that give you an in-game advantage. They've managed to take the most despised feature of F2P games and add it into their regular games.

Not being that familiar with the Origin client the process to install the beta wasn't as intuitive as it should have been. Anyway, downloading...

I am sorry but drifting game mode doesn't belong in a real racing games and I have to agree with nin.
Firstly, GRID never tried to be a simulator - it was an arcade racer that went for a semi-realistic approach. Secondly, drifting was in the original game and was well implemented. Not including drifting would be removing a feature from the original game.

This vid didn't show much gameplay, so here are a couple more:

Chicago
California

The graphics look fine, but not all that different from the original, which is 5 years old at this point. Which is fine, since the original looked so good, but surprising given the time span.
Those videos are clearly taken from console. Codemasters did the same thing with DiRT Showdown, in that all the preview videos were based on the console footage - when I played the demo on PC the graphics were way better than anything I'd seen.

Personally I think it's moronic to put out footage from a console version, particularly when they super-compress it. At least with Crysis 3 they use the PC footage.
