News Comments > Watch Dogs Requires Uplay
32. Re: Watch Dogs Requires Uplay Apr 8, 2014, 17:19 Freddie
 
I dont see the big issue. I bought FC3 on steam and all Uplay did for FC3 in that instance was provide the achievements, Steam did all the downloading & updating.

This time around I have pre-ordered watch_dogs from Green Man Gaming (who only sell Uplay keys). It just means I need to have Uplay running to get the automatic updates which is a bit of a pain but it was worth the $20 which I saved from buying it on Steam.

Always preferred Railworks/Train Sim myself...I guess its because I have always chose Kuju's stuff (from the early days of MSTS) over Auran's

Good to see train sims getting a bit of love though.

Agreed. Gta IV took like 18 months to come to the PC. After that I dont think they ported a single thing to the PC (Apart from Max Payne). RDR never came to the PC and its probably their best game yet. GTAV for the PC? Doubt it.

Wrong, GTA4 came out on PC 8mths after the consoles

I never played SWG, but as a Star Wars fan (of the original series), I somehow now feel like I missed out on a significant piece of Star Wars gaming history.

Or not.

Pre-NGE / CU it was great, but it was just a train wreck thereafter.

Note the line "how it would operate alongside BioWare's upcoming Star Wars The Old Republic MMORPG". That tells me it will hit before SWG shuts down.

You completely ignored the last part of the sentence : "which is to say that it won't."

SWG and TOR will not co-exist, so TOR will release on the day SWG closes or sometime after

Sad to see. Sad that a quite unique MMO was chopped and changed to be more like WoW and lost all of its original charm (Pre-CU / Pre-NGE). SWG was the 1st MMO I played, so it will always hold a nostalgic place in my heart, alot of my EQ playing friends praised the skill based system at the time but then it just turned into a cheap level based wow spinoff

Hopefully the Emu scene will keep this one alive after Sony axe it (back the way it used to be)

This serves absolutely no fucking purpose whatsoever. What kind of benefit does this offer over, say, a credit card? Or Paypal? None.

Coming up next, fucking Steampoints.

You seem to forget in non-US countries, our steam currencies are still based on the US dollar. Here in Australia, we can pump cash into the wallet when our dollar is strong and buy games later.

If this is true, this will spell the death for SWG. I dont think the MMORPG market is big enough to support 2 star wars MMOs

I agree....Alice was an excellent game for its time. The level design was just amazing

yeh i agree....not sure how them putting in the character's feet really matters. If you are spending more time looking at your feet rather than straight ahead, you will have issues staying alive

If you mean the X06 movie (also known as Trailer 1)....that was all pre-rendered.

The best movie I've seen for it so far is the one that Ken Levine does the voiceover for whilst playing. I think its over at Gamespot

Needless to say, this is one game I'll defiantely be picking up when it arrives

Settlers II was definately the best in the series. I believe it was re-released recently with updated graphics etc

Could this be the game that puts the final nail in SWG's coffin ?

21. Re: What about World War I?? Apr 25, 2007, 17:56 Freddie
 
There will be a PC version of CoD4. How do I know ?

The fact that CoD4 will be developed by Infinity Ward (who were behind CoD1/CoD2)

CoD3 was developed by Treyarch who seem to develop exclusively for consoles. So the mere fact that development rights are being returned to I.W. implies by itself that we will get it on PC.

In what form...only time will tell. But if history repeats itself, it will be developed as a PC title first and ported to the consoles

Arguing about which MMO is better is quite pointless, at the end of the day you are paying $ for a computer game with no clear goals.

You want community ? Go to a freakin pub and drink it up with the locals

Yeh, can't believe there are some glaring omissions such as:

* A Star Wars Space Sim (X-Wing, Tie Fighter, X-Wing Vs Tie Figher or X Wing Alliance)

* Star Wars Episode I: Racer

* Dark Forces

* Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds

News Comments > Steamships Ahoy - Dark Messiah of Might and Magic
15. Re: I like Steam but... Oct 25, 2006, 17:53 Freddie
 
^^ Very true

Here in Australia I have found Might n Magic to be cheapest via Steam..works out to be around $10AU less than what I could find it in stores for, so quite happy to sacrifice having the boxed copy.

Having a steamed version of a game is quite handy as there's never the risk of losing the game disc / cdkey as its all associated with your Steam ID

Never had any technical issues with Steam and lovin it !

yep, according to the Steam site will be available Oct 25

I'm guessing that date will be pushed back slightly to coincide with the shelf date
