News Comments > New Torchlight Demo

I bought this game a few days ago. It kicks ass. It's also cool they're releasing map editors and other mod tools. Plus, the MMO portion they'll release in, unfortunately, two years will be free to those who buy the game now.

I wonder if this will affect QuakeCon next year? It might turn into ConsoleCon.

News Comments > No RAGE Dedicated Server?
35. Activision Nov 6, 2009, 00:39 SirKnight
 
Everything the Activision CEO said about the MW2 PC iwnet business is a load of crap. What idiots if they really believe that. Do they really think PC gamers were having a hard time with multiplayer games using dedicated servers and not matchmaking services? We've been doing a pretty damn good job at it for over 15 years, I think we know what we're doing. And it's not that damn hard to find a game using a server browser.

Oh how I wish Activision would fall on its ass out of existence.

I used to love id software. Now they can kiss my arse.

News Comments > Steam Adds Email Security

I hope they fix the issue in Win7 where if you click the x, open up a window of another program (firefox, etc) then minimize that window steam pops up. It doesn't stay hidden like in Vista and XP. The workaround for now is to use the minimize button instead. But that gets annoying with other windows like the bandwidth monitor.

News Comments > Dragon Age: Origins Day One DLC Plans
24. Re: Dragon Age: Origins Day One DLC Plans Oct 7, 2009, 20:53 SirKnight
 
The nickel-and-dime'ing continues. Yet again, we pay FULL FUCKING PRICE for a half of a game. A crap load of content is created, but instead of including it with the game like it used to be, greed has set in and they take it out call it DLC and charge a fee. Sometimes they'll sit on a bunch of content for months to make it seem like it's all new and good stuff and release it later. We're not dumb.

Screw this. This is why I NEVER buy DLC. It's a shame most modern games doesn't even come close to providing value worth the asking price. They used to. This is why I rarely buy games at full retail price any more. I'll wait and get it used or bargain bin. Doesn't bother me a bit.

News Comments > OFP: Dragon Rising Dedicated Server Plea
2. Re: OFP: Dragon Rising Dedicated Server Plea Oct 7, 2009, 14:48 SirKnight
 
I'm really hating consoles more and more. They're killing gaming as a whole, not just PC gaming. Games are becoming shorter, watered down and a lot of times forgettable. They're also making us pay full price for half of a game and nickel-and-dime us with the rest of the game through DLC. That shit isn't extra content. It's stuff already made but cut out and spread out over time.

I'd get a Go if it was around the same price, if not cheaper which it SHOULD be, as the "regular" PSP. But at $250, screw that. I actually play with my iPod touch more often anyway.

Although I am very much looking forward to the new SOCOM this December. I have it already pre-ordered on Amazon.

But you know, this isn't surprising at all since CoD is pretty much a movie anyway. Just a slightly interactive one. This is why CoD annoys me so much is that it's more of an interactive movie than a game.

CoD4 for example is still $40.00.


Nope. Check Amazon. It's $20 for the PC and between 20 and 30 for the 360.

That's because you're all a bunch of filthy pirates dontchaknow?


Aye, that be true. Pirate

I don't see how this game is worth $60 anyway. It's only going to be a few hours long, highly scripted and linear so there's no point in playing it again. The MP is meh. It's CS with better graphics.

I'd get it for no more than $20. But even then I still may not. I never bought CoD5 and it's around $20 now. I just don't give enough of a damn.

Proof they know this will suck as much, if not worse, than the first AC so they use sex to sell it. Lame.

I don't like sex in movies (complete waste of time) and I really don't know why the f**k we need it in games now. :/ Just stupid.

News Comments > NVIDIA OpenCL Drivers
3. Re: NVIDIA OpenCL Drivers Sep 29, 2009, 22:15 SirKnight
 
It's an open standard parallel computing language/api. It functions like NVIDIA's CUDA (which is no coincidence). It's also pretty much what Compute Shader is to DirectX.

PhysX is written in CUDA to run on the GPU. So you could write a physics engine in OpenCL and have it run on any GPU that supports OpenCL.

4. Re: Left 4 Dead 2 Demo Details Sep 23, 2009, 19:25 SirKnight
 
I know Valve has done this before, but it makes no damn sense at all. The purpose of a demo is to let people play a small part to see if they want the game or not. A pre-order bonus should be something worth a damn to the full game. Normally I don't bitch at Valve for anything but this is just retarded.

Well hell, if that's the case, since I bought every Valve game at launch they should give me a house, a Ferrari, and two blond chicks.
