News Comments > RAGE Interview
16. Re: RAGE Interview Oct 4, 2011, 22:58 SirKnight
 
I find the Ars review to be a crock of shit TBH. The game is quite cool and fun other than a few graphical issues that are driver bugs. It's definitely a lot better than Doom 3, and I liked Doom 3 quite a bit.

In my hour of playing so far, I've had 10000x more fun than the BF3 beta. I'm very glad I bought Rage.

The main reason I was having xbox live issues yesterday. Lost $50 worth of points to some ahole hacker.

I think my password was known here because of the PSN hack where I used the same password. :/

WTF?! No video options in a PC game from id, Carmack you've fallen so hard from your pinnacle.


So he created this awesome virtual texturing technology that allows artists complete freedom in painting the virtual world - giving detail in resource constrained environments that normally is not possible, something no one else has even come close to doing and just because they did not add complex graphics options (not even up to Carmack anyway) suddenly he has fallen? Uh...ooook.

Carmack only does the very core render programming these days. They have so many programmers now that he is no longer responsible for most of the code like in the old days.

OMG they're going to be at GameStop...those BASTARDS! They should be skinned alive for such treachery. Heathens I say!

LOL!

I don't like the idea of the engine figuring out the settings for me. This has NEVER worked well in the past with every game that tries to do this. I can almost always run at MUCH higher settings than the game detects.

Of course, this is an id engine so it will have cfg files and the drop down console. So it's all good.

I put it alongside 95 and XP as one of the best versions we've had.


95 was shit. Sure it looked nicer than 3.11 but it was the most crash prone POS I have ever used. Vista was WAY better than that 95 turd.

98 SE was A LOT better than 95.

While 7 is obviously a lot better than Vista, I didn't have all that many problems with Vista really. Windows 7 basically IS Vista but with good drivers.

I miss 2k. I didn't get to use it a whole lot but when I did it was awesome.

Ok, I'm glad it's not just me.

Hopefully it's not a PSN-style breach or anything.

Is anyone else seeing a problem with Live? I turned on my 360 and it wont let me log into my live account. I seem to be having problems going to live.xbox.com as well.

It's amazing how much better this looks than DNF which has been in the works for FAR longer by FAR more people. Sad and funny at the same time.

News Comments > Planned Battlefield 3 Changes
18. Re: Planned Battlefield 3 Changes Sep 30, 2011, 23:40 SirKnight
 
To me this game feels too fast paced. Kinda CoD like. But, I played the beta right after playing Splinter Cell so I guess everything would feel fast after that, hah. But basically this is CoD with better graphics, like I figured.

Then it crashed. lol

I can't tell you how many times I was killed because I was trying to bind my keys. :/

So yeah, I don't see me paying $60. Plus I don't like to have to use Origin. I prefer to have all my games launch from Steam (the key thing here is ONE central place) even if they are not Steam games. I also don't like using a browser for the server list. I'd prefer either in-game server list or a program like Gamespy/Kali used to be. Just not a web browser.

I've been looking forward to this so I hope they start back up again some day. This looks sooooo much better than DNF, which looked and felt like a pre-alpha only 6 months into development, if that.

Are these really new "drivers" or just setting profiles wrapped in the same old driver.

Why a game requires special drivers is beyond me. Adhere to the API standard(s): quit taking shortcuts.

^D^


Yes these are new drivers, not just a profile.

Learn how drivers really work and do some profiling with various games/apps and it will be more clear why you need special optimizations. A good place to start is the Mesa codebase or any of the open source linux 3d drivers.

Yep, EXACTLY why I will not be buying this game unless Blizzard changes this stupid shit. Even if they do, I'm waiting for a sale since this game IMO is a step backwards in several aspects from D2.
