News Comments > Intel Killing Off Desktop/Enthusiast PCs?

I just don't see them going from one generation where they release locked and unlocked processors to the next where they solder them directly to the motherboard
This. It would be a bizarre move if it's true and it would have a devastating effect on the enthusiast market. If AMD was to finally produce a decent CPU - and unfortunately that's a long shot at the moment - then people would quickly switch.

News Comments > Dishonored DLC Next Month
9. Re: Dishonored DLC Next Month Nov 27, 2012, 12:52 theyarecomingforyou
 
If the PC price is the same then I may pick it up but I'm not really a fan of time-trials as a gameplay mechanism, particularly not in a story-driven singleplayer game. That said, I'll be all over the singleplayer DLC.

News Comments > Max Payne 3 Painful Memories DLC Next Week
10. Re: Max Payne 3 Painful Memories DLC Next Week Nov 27, 2012, 07:48 theyarecomingforyou
 
The cutscenes were grossly excessive and those that were pre-rendered were of such pathetically low quality that I actually thought the game was broken when I first played it. When you play at 2560x1600 and maxed out graphics and you're thrown into a cutscene at 1280x720 (if that - I'm really not sure) with low quality settings and no anti-aliasing then you REALLY notice the change. That and the gameplay gets a bit tedious at points.

I'll get around to completing it at some point but the reviews were overly generous. The Metacritic user score tells you the real story.

What didn't you like about the first one? If it was the combat, you should probably know that Witcher 2's combat is completely different. You have direct input for every attack, block, parry, etc.
Yeah. I really liked the concept of The Witcher but I couldn't really get into it; the Witcher 2 on the otherhand was superb, easily one of the best games I've played. It's worth grabbing even if you didn't complete the original or even enjoy it.

If they were to remake the original game with the new engine and mechanics I'd buy it in a flash. Unfortunately that project was scrapped.

News Comments > Far Cry 3 Map Editor Trailer
10. Re: Far Cry 3 Map Editor Trailer Nov 27, 2012, 06:57 theyarecomingforyou
 
The map editor included in Far Cry 2 was excellent and it's a real shame that multiplayer never took off for it, as the potential was huge. I'm glad to see that they've taken things further with Far Cry 3.

I'm very much looking forward to this and the reviews have only increased my anticipation.

News Comments > No BioShock Infinite Multiplayer
14. Re: No BioShock Infinite Multiplayer Nov 26, 2012, 12:28 theyarecomingforyou
 
Multiplayer would have been a waste of resources, as it wouldn't stand a chance against dedicated multiplayer games. Let's just hope they get the singleplayer right, as this game is starting to become a bit of a development disaster with all the delays and staff quitting.

Based on what I've seen so far it looks like it will be enjoyable but only worth picking up when it goes on sale - the gameplay looks very dated, especially after games like Dishonored, Borderlands 2 and Far Cry 3. It's on my "maybe, if it gets good reviews" list.

EDIT: any of the three DLC packs worth getting, seeing as they are all %75 off ATM.
Only 'The Missing Link' - the rest are junk.

I was just trying to pick up Dishonored at GMG, but it won't let me buy it. No buy button on the game's page, and the buy button that was on the front page just led to a 404 error. Now the game doesn't seem to show up at all, even when searching for it.
They seem to have removed the digital version and the DVD-ROM version is out of stock. Sounds like they've exceeded their allotment.

Anyway, I'm glad that the new King's Bounty went on sale. I'm a huge fan of the series but I couldn't justify the UK price when it's basically a rehash of the previous games. I was happy to grab it at 50% off and I've already sunk 5hrs into it. It's more of the same but that's good for me.

Btw, if Dear Esther comes around again (it was in the flash sales) then I highly recommend it. It's short and it doesn't have any interaction or combat, but the atmosphere is excellent and it's really original. I took a few screenshots: Night Sky; Wilderness; Beach but they really don't do it justice; you really have to play it to understand.

DangerDog wrote on Nov 22, 2012, 15:17:
Nice effort but I would think the main reason that consoles are 60 to 65 is it creates an artificial zoom effect, it's less about the peripheral view and more about the focal distance and wanting to make things on the TV screen bigger / easier to see.

the boost in FPS performance can't be ignored either.
As the video points out, 60-65 is actually the optimum FOV for consoles. The performance boost and zoom effect are simply bonuses.

Nice to know they'll let Dice go back to a non-BF IP.
More likely this is a separate studio with the same name, like EA did with BioWare. It can't be the main studio, as they're working on BF4.

I'd love to be excited about this, as I really enjoyed the original. Unfortunately this is EA we're talking about, so it won't be available on Steam and they're pretty good at fucking up franchises.

Look, I get it. You're a hardcore PC gamer and you get weirdly jealous when a game designed for consoles gets a lot of attention. Hell, you're so hardcore that you post your gaming rig details in your signature. That's HARDCORE! Speaking of bullshit, did you actually buy two GTX680 cards and SLI them?
Heh. Yeah, it's best not to take me seriously... I say a lot of random shit.

Okay, now space sim people need to give Elite:Dangerous kickstarter some love.
As much as I love space sims, that Kickstarter offers me zero confidence in the game. I just don't see how it's going to come close to Star Citizen with a fraction of the budget.

So you actually bought WinME and Vista?
I certainly did. WinME was a mistake - I bought the upgrade and it crashed when I first went to install it. I ended up having lots of driver and stability issues, so I ended up going back to Win98SE. As for Vista, I was very happy with it - most games performed faster and it was a huge improvement on the desktop (well, it's what Win7 was based on). It was only really slower systems that had issues with it.

I've bought every consumer version of Windows since 3.1 and being an early upgrader has improved with every release, to the point where I haven't found anything incompatible with Windows 8 yet (undoubtedly there is a lot of software but nothing that I use).

xXBatmanXx wrote on Nov 19, 2012, 12:47:
wOW. Soo they aren't promising a PC edition? Crazy.
Even if they do it will be swamped in the media blitz that will accompany Microsoft's (and Sony's?) new console at the end of 2013 and it will also be competing with Watch Dogs. That's without even considering the backlash after the terrible PC port of GTAIV.

If Rockstar were to port GTAV to PC they would have to do an exceptional job and that's without even considering whether GTAV actually improves the gameplay for the series, as the previously game was decidedly lacking and hasn't aged well. Don't get me wrong, that's certainly possible - Alan Wake demonstrates that. It just seems very, very unlikely.

Oh, and if they're going to include Rockstar Socialcunt Club then they might as well just stop right now.

Every time I watch his updates, I just giggle at Braben's terse "Thank you for all the support" crap and no footage of any kind whatsoever other than his talking face in front of a monitor that shows a few screenshots they whipped together in a day. I feel sorry for all the people who support that.
I can understand why people want to support Elite: Dangerous - what with the dearth of space sims on the market - but it just looks shoddy. Meanwhile, Chris Roberts has created an amazing prototype for so early on and there is already a strong basis for it - not only that but it's based on CryEngine3, so we know it will scale well (especially as Star Citizen won't be released until 2014-15).

The negativism towards this game is unwarranted and much like the guy who poo-poos the brand of vodka the party host has provided in a failed attempt to impress the pretty girl he's chatting up, you can be walked away from and ignored.
I wouldn't say there has much much "negativism", just healthy scepticism.

Anyway, I decided that despite my earlier statements about not buying it unless it's on Steam that I'd support it anyway. I can always buy it again later but I really wanted to get in on the alpha and beta tests.
