This is awesome! Of course on some of those towers, you're an easy target for everyone else.


Awesome, maybe - but still a cheat. What was it in BF2142, drop pod surfing that got banned in the first patch, this is clearly going to be banned in patch 1.

I didn't play the Beta to death, and am looking forward to the release. Great game and great concept. Notch is the man.

Probably a result of that backwards date thing the Europeans do. Sometimes they let their produce spoil because they get so confused over which number is the day and which is the month. Oh, those wacky Europeans.

... So I guess there won't be a beta 1.9.

Beta 1.9 prerelease 5 has been available for a few weeks now. Lots of new fun stuff, but I'm trying to hold off too until the final.

I got the email last night from Valve, but I don't think I'm going to get picked for the Beta. Step 1 was to allow Steam to scan your PC hardware and send back the results, Step 2 which was mandatory was to fill out a DOTA survey, but the questions were ones that only a current player could successfully complete, how many hours a week do you currently play DOTA, what is you favorite character, like 20 questions similar to these.

to think, I did.

I have gotten burned too many times by the pre-release purchase price - never again. I'm not buying early to save 10% again.

Just picked it on Steam for 9 bucks, did a double take - wasn't this $49.99 just recently??? Haven't seen this kind of crash since I bought Supreme Commander 2 at full price to see it plummet to it's well deserved $9.99 price a few months later.

I bought it at release, but haven't played yet because of all the bugs. So I'm thinking this is the perfect time to get started. I don't see a mention of WHEN the reset will take place, besides "soon", anyone know?

My disappointment is only eased by the games mentioned development cycle problems, anything with this many problems is bound to suck.

Just saw that those Recommended System Specs from a few weeks ago were for Medium Quality only, Ultra quality requires 2 580 GTX's in SLI mode.

Every little bit these new drivers can help the better.

That a programmer had the stones to include that raises the games standing in my mind. This political correctness garbage really has begun to cross the line into absurdity. Besides, its not like any feminist whores will ever even see this to be by offended by it - what with all the not making sandwiches and time spent horizontally lobbying politicos.


Yeah, really. It's funny. +1 for Techland.

What was wrong with how this was reported in the story you are commenting on?

Sorry Blue, I thought it was a subsequent post with further details, my bad.

saw this over at GDN:
A patch is set to be pushed out to North American PC version owners today. Destructoid received a list of fixes that would be in the day one patch for the game and hereís everything you can expect

So now only did Techland and Deep Silver know the game had some serious issues, they knew exactly what they were and again, instead of pushing out the release date, simply pushed out a broken game or rather, an unfinished product. No, itís not the first time a company has done it, and will probably not be the last, but itís starting to become a bad habit for the industry.

Just like they were considering adding Onslaught mode to the BFBC2 PC version? Never happened, and neither will this.

I'll stick with my Asus Xonar DX, thanks.

Is that based off the same chipset as the creative, though? Tell me more, if you don't mind. I've been using onboard, since the creative I have kept making random popping sounds in Windows 7.

Thanks!

It's my understanding that Sound Blaster uses one Cirrus Logic chipset while the Xonar uses two of them. What does that mean? I'm not really sure. I know that not only does it sound great, but I don't have to deal with the flaky driver support Creative has. I've experienced their policy of abandoning their hardware support first hand, and a few years ago they sued a guy who wrote his own drivers for their Legacy cards they were no longer supporting. So to hell with Creative.

Read this review of the Xonar, it's where I first heard of them:
