I hope this is the year they finally show Doom 4.

For id's sake, I also hope they toss OpenGL for the PC version. As much as I like OpenGL, the radeon OpenGL driver has always been a joke (still is) and is the main reason Rage got so much hate. Half of the players could not run it. Whereas, the D3D driver for radeons is quite good. Unless id wants Doom 4 to get bashed to hell and back too, they have no choice but to switch. The bad thing is their huge investment in OpenGL for their tools. That's the thing that would make a switch difficult and costly.

And $154 is the quakecon rate for the hotel? I hate to see what it costs normally. As much as I'd like to go to QC, no way am I paying that much for a hotel. Especially not for several nights during the whole event.

I'm glad Sony came to their senses and dropped the touch screen button option. Touch screen buttons on phones/tablets suck. It's a very undesirable way to control a game. It's no surprise so many want to hook gamepads to their phone/tablet for games and why things like iCade exist (including their upcoming accessories).

A joke? The only thing that's a joke is trying to claim this was a joke and being a shill.

They got caught with their pants down and tried to play it off. Simple as that, period.

What's even more funny/sad is this thing had a hard time playing that video too. lol! It struggled like hell in the beginning.

I really wish Blizzard would make their games available on Steam. I hate the Blizzard downloader and the way it automatically rapes your connection in order to distribute the game using YOUR bandwidth to other people. Fucking cheapskates.

On the plus side, the DIII beta was awesome and so I'll probably grab it. Not sure whether that will be for release or if I'll wait for a discount. Tropico 4 is keeping me occupied at the moment and I haven't even started on Shogun 2 yet.


I agree I HATE their torrent style downloader. It's always slower than crap. Normally I download at ~2.3 MB/sec (20Mb cable) but I'm doing good to get 1Mb (notice that's mega BIT) or less on Blizzard's crap.

Oh I'm sure it's just love taps.

I personally like Netflix a lot. And it's stupid to blame them on price hikes when the source of that is the greedy ass content owners. They keep charging more and more for licensing even though it's not necessary. This is the same reason cable companies are having to charge more. People say, oh you should cut the cord or dump Netflix...but why? Where are you going to go and why dump them when it's not their fault? It's effing greedy hollywood. And of course, they are going to cry about piracy and other non-sense.

I have not finished DNF. It's just so hard when the entire game is so bland and stale. Plus the way damage is taken is really inconsistent and odd. It's quite annoying.

I just go back and play Duke 3D with a source port and some mods. Way better.

I bought BF3 for the 360 for like 5.00 (coupon and on sale for turkey day) but only got the vanilla version. I don't think I will play it much on console to justify the expansion pack....bummed I didn't get an LE version....

I can't think of any reason WHY you would buy this game on 360?? This type of game is all about the PC & its granular controls, better graphics, larger community, etc...etc.


I picked up BF3 (limited ed) for the 360 also but I got it on a buy two games get one free deal on Amazon. So basically mine was free so I figured what the hell. The other two games I was going to buy anyway.

Even though I prefer KB/mouse, the controller is not that bad and I have the FragFX mouse controller for the 360 too. But, being able to play this on a huge TV with good surround sound system on a nice couch to me far out weighs what you get on the PC, IMO. So for me at this point, BF3 for the 360 (or PS3 I guess too) is the way to go. Plus like Batman, I did not want to support EA/Origin.

However, later when BF3 for the PC goes on an extreme sale I may pick it up, but not now. I am curious what it's like with 3D Vision.

I'm also getting tired of all the stupid issues that PCs give you, especially with the way mine is acting recently (I bought a new mobo so I hope that will fix these problems). My consoles over the past year has been looking better and better.

I find it funny there's a mod for Doom 3 called Dark Mod. Isn't that what the base game already is? Dark? LOL!

I liked Doom 3 for what it was, but it would have been more impressive if released a year or two sooner.

I just hope Doom 4 is more like the originals in terms of feel and environment.

This game is awesome. SP and MP. Old school and pure Sam. What Duke should have been. Way better than Duke.

Plus there's an editor! (which I have not tried yet)
