probably didn't hurt the sales stats for that game when they sold it for a $1.90 couple of days ago

And I have the relevance of data gripe here, having a top ten list is all well and good, but without sales numbers how could anyone make much out of it.

Hardly ever played this genre before. but absolutely love this game. there is no consolidation issues, its pure pc, the slower pace of the game can give that little extra time to come up with the right choice, on the other hand, fleet movement is also a little slow, but thats where good planning and anticipation comes in.

basics was quick to grasp, its not complex in that regard, tactics on the other hand is a different issue, but thats why this game rocks so hard in my opinion.

it includes map editors and what not. ,(a better more advanced one can be dl'ed from the game site) and the game is realy modable, and there is lots of mods around from minor effects tweaks to total star wars\trek makeovers.

oh and no drm
The smaller skirmish maps can be dealt with in an hour or two, but the larger maps can sometimes take days to dominate.
and this game should come with a 'time flies' warning label.

Ever since Steam started charging me in Euro's instead of dollars. I'ts at the time cheaper to go buy the actual gamedisc in store than steam.

in valves mind there doesnt seem to be much difference between 49.99$ and 49.99euro.

except for the 45% cost increase for us european gamers.
the day this happened also was the day I stopped buying steam games.

I honestly don't think most players bother with the whole council thing.

In fact most I talk to aggree with calling it the council of steller mismanagement.

Where is global warming when we need it !

And its not due to polution. Global warming is the fruits of a secret norwegian terraforming project.

I've been playing eve steadily for 3 years now, and my first reaction to eve bank was initialy "yea right, go find some other sucker"

Then they did suprise me by not running away with all the money themselves, but some manager\director did run off with a few hundred billion, and they are now saying that they gave out loans nobody will pay back on top aforemention, 'theft'.

My first thought when I saw this as logging in today was " HAH! told you so suckers !"

So the only actors elligeble for the gw movie are ex football players with a massive steroid problem, yea this has classic written all over it.

BTW, in GW you are battling a bunch of aliens or whatnot that cant stand the light, why give the grunts a chainsaw gun when a flashlight would have been better ?

Well since steam came up with the bright idea that they could make more money by changing the currency notation, this would be 30 euro, quick google turns that out as 43 usd, before currency exchange so probably an even 50. Yea I'm pissed at steam, and no I'm not gonna pay 130% for your games. The day valve changed currency in mainland europe was the day I stopped buying their games.

Go Impulse !

"Imagine a game machine where you're just going to pick up the bat and swing it"

Thats exactly what I need, a bunch of 13 yr old phys ed C students flailing bats around my living room, granted the wii mote can do some damage but its still a bit off from an aluminum bat.

News Comments > Steam GTAIV Patched
3. Re: Steam GTAIV Patched Apr 14, 2009, 16:37 TorTorden
 
No doubt about it, the pc version performs horribly. and the game itself has taken a step back from San andreas imo.

I did however manage to get good framerates at decent graphical settings when I for other reasons upgraded to an I7 with a g285 gpu and 6 gig of ram, granted gtaIV is a 32bit program so not much point in that.

It's a fine game if you get it to run ok, and that is a big if, a top of the line gpu and a quad core cpu is barely enough to reach recommended performance. (any other reason than bad porting is bullshit) on top of that the game requires both steam if you get it via valve, rockstar social club, and uses windows live.
on top of all that the game realy needs an ok controll pad, but the game is coded to only work with the xbx360 windows controller.. yea there is an emulator out for that..

bottom line, I cant recommend this game for the pc pure and simple. not worth the hasle.

And we don't have to worry about retail markup, customer service, etc

excellent line of thought, just drop that pesky customer support and your pay per month service will make a lot more money.

same here, as far as mouse motion goes, I can use my entire desktop or do all my gaming by basicaly just shifting the mouse underneath my palm, Inow I hardly move the arm\wrist at all, no movement, no stress never had a repetitive stress problem either. (except when playing consoles that is, I tend to press the buttons a little too hard.)

I usualy set 'effects' to medium in the most recent games since it mainly only means extra blurry and if I wanted that I could just take off my glasses. I max out texture res in ME and run in native 1680x1050 with physx enabled at a perfectly playeable framerate, 30+ I would guess. all on my 8800gts 640MB
