Hopefully we'll get some decent Doom 4 info/screens/footage. I just hope it's not Doom 3 with id Tech 5.

I have a feeling Alan Wake is going to end up a turd with all the delays and changes made along the way. It's not going to end up being what it was supposed to be. Plus with no PC support, screw it.

Jeez, that's alot of god damn DRM, good thing I'm getting this on Xbox 360.


That's exactly what they want. They know that DRM and all this crap is worthless and people hate it. They're not that dumb. But, they keep on and on with this until they kill off PC gaming by converting everyone over to the console. The piracy problem will not be solved, but it sure will be a lot less since it is harder to do on the console than the PC. Especially when it comes to multiplayer.

While I have all the consoles and a good number of games, I'm still a PC gamer and always will be. I hate what the current consoles and the corporate greed has done to the gaming industry, especially the PC side. It also does not help that gaming has become all mainstream. I hate that as well. Games used to be so deep and involved which was great. They came with huge instruction manuals. Now, they're lame kiddie hold-my-hand worthless crap that blinds so many in thinking it's a good game by using Hollywood style cinematics and flashy stuff when really it's shallow and forgettable. Very few modern games are not like that. Very few.

What you say doesn't make much sense. This is not about the Unreal game. It's about their engine which powers A LOT of games not called "Unreal." Just because the engine is called Unreal Engine doesn't mean it's tied to the Unreal game and story.

Time and Convenience does come at a price.


I don't know what you're trying to argue here, but if what you say were true then ALL games on STEAM would cost more than the retail version. That's clearly not the case. Plus, it's ACTIVISION that set the price to $60 not STEAM. So your argument means nothing.

Yeah, come on all of you, big strong men,
Uncle Sam needs your help again.
He's got himself in a terrible jam
Way down yonder in Vietnam
So put down your books and pick up a gun,
We're gonna have a whole lotta fun.
And it's one, two, three,
What are we fighting for ?
Don't ask me, I don't give a damn,
Next stop is Vietnam;
And it's five, six, seven,
Open up the pearly gates,
Well there ain't no time to wonder why,
Whoopee! we're all gonna die.

Maybe this time, instead of a side mission where you mow down civilians in an airport, you mow down protesting hippies on a college campus.

I'd play that.

Or better yet, the hippies are throwing rocks and spitting at soldiers coming home and you play as one of those soldiers who goes AWOL and mows them all down. I'm sure that's what they felt like doing.

With my sub-par net connection, this is the only way (other than playing at work, lol) I can play TF2.

Probably spent too much development time creating the streaming island technology, especially getting it to work on consoles. The game content felt rushed to get it out the door.

The problem is that the island is really boring with no variety in scenery.


Exactly. The game does indeed feel like it was rushed and is no where near complete. To me the game feels more like a beta if anything.

I find DR's game world to be more bland and boring than Far Cry 2, which has a pretty empty environment itself.

It is true that Arma kicks DR's ass. There's VERY few things I like better about DR. I had hopes for a long time it would be the other way around.

I thought the graphics would have been better but in DR it's really brown and bland. It just looks plain bad. The Battlefield BC engine does a MUCH better job. Even though I have many issues w/ Arma 2's graphics, it still beats DR to pieces.

The overall gameplay and interactivity in Arma 2 blows away DR. Like the graphics, the gameplay in DR is bland.

This game was a HUGE disappointment and no DLC/patch can fix it. It takes a whole re-write. Thus, OFP3.

However, at least DR is not an on-a-rail script fest like CoD. Even with all the faults, I'd still play DR over any CoD without a doubt.'

Unfortunately, we will not have the true mil-sim/Arma killer we want unless the game is made for the PC primarily. But, making it primarily for the consoles, like DR was, we get typical console kiddie crap.

Also, the DR devs always said this is the most realistic this and that for the console and the console never had this kind of real experience before. That's bull. I guess they forgot about Operation Flashpoint Elite for the Xbox. Elite shows you can make a realistic mil-sim on the console that wasn't gimped beyond belief. I'd also say OFP: Elite is better and more realistic than DR. Even with Elite's less than PC quality graphics and HORRIBLE voice acting. The PC version's voice acting, while not worthy of awards, was A LOT better.

I hope you're talking about OFP:DR and not the original OFP.

I was about to say the same thing. OFP:DR I can understand. The graphics did suck and the game feels really bland and half assed. There are some good moments though, but few and far between.

The original OFP was great and I still play it.

I went and played a little Arma 2 recently and realized why I have been avoiding it. I only play single player BTW. The AI sucks so damn bad it's a joke. The graphics performance is laughable and the lack of physics makes for some bizarre situations. The controls have improved a lot but still are way too sluggish. It feels like your character is handicapped or something. The driving physics is so crappy I just shake my head. It's almost impossible to drive anything if you expect the vehicle handling to be..you know, realistic and what you'd expect from a vehicle.

I really wish this game engine was open source so I could fix these annoying ass issues myself.

I was just thinking about the Black Mesa mod a few days ago. I watched the trailer they released a year ago again and remember feeling good knowing it would be out in 2009. Now a year later and nothing.

Oh well, it IS a mod group after all and not a company working on this full time. But, since it has been going on so long, if we don't see it in 2010 I'm pretty sure I'll just give up and lose interest.

You know that you are no longer relevant as a gamer when you are just stunned into speechlessness at the realization that the market considers Modern Warfare as the definitive FPS...

I feel old.


I couldn't agree with you more. It's fukkin sad man.

What's odd is commercial success does not always mean it's a good/great product. I think it starts from the hype and marketing then continues with presenting shiny things. This gives the illusion that something is good when in fact the shiny aspect is just blinding you of the real product underneath. It can be easy to become carried away by outside appearance.

Take Call of Duty for example. MW2 had a huge budget for hype/marketing and presents you with cinematics that's like a big budget flashy movie (which I personally think has no place in a game). Yet the game play at its core is bland, boring and many steps backwards and only those who don't let them selves get blinded by the flash can see this. Just imagine for a second a game that has the exact game play as MW2 yet without the over-the-top cinematics and hype. It would be a pretty bland game and not sell well at all. There's been a number of low budget games that has the EXACT SAME GAME-PLAY FORMULA as CoD yet they are no where near the financial success even though it's mostly the same damn game. Many even have just as good of graphics or at least pretty close. It's not the game play that makes CoD a top selling brand. Not even close.

It's a shame that in the current world, there's less and less of a place for truly good games that's in the AAA realm. The only thing that can exist now are cookie cutter bland games with a lot of flash giving the APPEARANCE of something great. Welcome to the world of the same 'ol same 'ol. With the exception of the indie game devs, gaming is dead.
