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)

ThinkGeek is working on getting better international rates. That's crazy it's $90 to ship this to the UK. Someone would have to want this REAL bad. lol

I started playing CS:Source again recently. I definitely like it better than CoD MP which was obviously inspired by CS. To me, the gameplay of CS is how it should be. No regenerating health! You get hit, you're injured.

If GO keeps the same formula then yay!

And still no fix for RAGE on either Nvidia's side or id's. How long has that game been out and they (id Software) haven't addressed the low res textures and texutre pop-in issues, or even an update to status of?


What's wrong with Rage on NVIDIA? It looks and plays perfectly fine for me. I see very minimal texture pop in, but a lot of games do that and it's because of the over head in the drivers. The low res issue is just due to the high amounts of compression they used. But even then, the game looks better than most other games that have come out and no one complains about them!

id does have a patch coming, but is waiting for AMD to fix their shit drivers do they can validate.

Ah nuts, you have to have a FB account to do this. Technically I do have one, but I disabled it years ago and will not go back.

Oh well. No big loss really. I'd honestly still rather play D2 and Torchlight.

I implemented this algorithm years ago. It's a really nice way of solving the usual problems with shadow volumes efficiently. It's a shame this has to be patented. Just goes to show patents, especially software, do more harm to the field of computer science than it helps.

Wow, that's pretty shitty of Telltale to not man-up and take responsibility of their mistreatment of someone else's things. I just don't understand how some people can be so disrespectful. Low life's.

I was going to buy this Jurassic Park game, but now I will not. I now see what kind of people Telltale is made of. Fuck 'em.

Even though mods and potentially higher res textures on the PC version is nice, honestly I'd rather have the console (360) version. The reasons are: play on a big LED HDTV (60"+), theater style rocking surround sound system, and sit on a comfortable couch/recliner. The large TV with great sound system is really the key for an amazing experience with a game like this. Plus, with the PC, you need to spend tons of money to make it run at full specs at playable fps. Now, I have already done that, but still, spending tons on my PC every year is getting old as hell.

I think I'll get the 360 version and pick up the PC version on a steam sale in the future (to check out mods and stuff). I am curious how the nvidia 3d vision setup is with this game. I plan on getting a new monitor soon (my current one is starting to act very weird) and I'm thinking a 3D capable one this time around.

Actually they already have, kind of. Guitar amps with tubes are still made. Some have tubes and the modern digital stuff. Kind of a hybrid amp I guess.

Face it, CoD and BF are both the same rehashed shit. I feel good I will not be touching either one with a ten foot pole.

Fanbois from both sides are just as moronic as the other. Pretty funny to watch though.

Yay!

I was just thinking the other day the kinds of rendering algorithms I want to add to this. In addition to iOS/Android support.

My port is going to have a very different backend.
