I haven't bought a sound card since Doom 3 came out. I think I've used on-board for the last two or three upgrades I've done. I don't see that changing any time soon.


If Creative really wants to get to our wallets they should start making video cards. I'm a sucker for a new video card every 1-2 years, but sound? Once you've got a good sound card there is no reason to upgrade. Ever.

"The Ultimate Sound Processor for the PC, Mac, Xbox 360 and PS3.

They've said this every time a new card comes out. I'll stick with my Asus Xonar DX, thanks.

News Comments > No Shooting Civilians in Battlefield 3
31. Re: No Shooting Civilians in Battlefield 3 Aug 31, 2011, 12:25 McSterls
 
Isn't shooting civilians really a moral decision that should be left up to the player? Building a realistic shooter like BF3 appears to be means that collateral damage and friendly fire can and should happen. I'm not aiming for the civilians, but if someone takes a round so be it.

The "no russian" mission in Call of Duty was to kill civilians, that was the purpose of the mission.

I've already pre-ordered BF3, and think it will be the GOTY - but not liking this Origin service and their snooping at all. I'll put up with it because I want to play, but how many people will pass over this. Just a bad business model, and typical EA bullshit.

I don't need to watch this trailer because I already know the game is going to be awesome.

Agreed, I'd rather not watch and spoil any surprises, one of the best games of last year.

bit-tech.uk has their review of the game up before it's release, they give it a 90% - still time to grab the pre-release steam price too.

I just jumped over to GameSpy to make sure the text was as quoted, and holy shit it's spot on. This nation is at war with enemies on all fronts and GameSpy would refer to US Marines as high school dropouts, I'm done with GameSpy now.

It's hard to find a review site that isn't working the c**k of a publisher, I like bit-tech.net, they get it right pretty much every time and aren't afraid to throw a game to the ground for sucking. Duke Nuke Score on Bit-tech: 50%

Wasn't there a special free in-game weapon if you pre-purchased 2142 from Best Buy? Maybe it was just a reskinned standard gun.

Regardless, these weapons will be lower on the tech tree, get them for free obsolete after a few hours of playing. I don't see that as hurting the balance at all, balance will be hurt by people who have played FPS before too.

In early March employees at KAOS expressed concern that they'd be forced to move to Montreal after Homefront shipped

Guess what, you don't be afraid about having to move to Montreal anymore.

Isn't this something we should work our way into slowly? Give it a few years for the door to the gay network closet to open. Maybe we could start with the double entendre and some innuendo before we launch full into the gay computer revolution revolution. I have a hard time watching gay scene's on HBO and Showtime, not sure how I'm going to be able to handle finding out that my favorite character is into hardcore BF weekends.

I remember Z:Steel Soldiers too, I played through it twice, but there were a lot of issues which the Bitmap Brother promised, and never delivered on, like a map editor and a lot of game play and A.I. bugs that went unfixed(your units could be fired on and destroyed without them responding) that they decided to walkaway from and not fix. I've never forgotten it and won't be coming back to a Bitmap brother game anytime soon.

I'm sure it's a very good card - but I'll wait to see an independent review. The one slide reads 67% faster than GTX 580 (Avg.), sounds like marketing.

30. THQ Bringing Voltron Game This Year Feb 15, 2011, 16:40 McSterls
 
http://www.shacknews.com/onearticle.x/67523

Everything old is new again. Variety reports that THQ is working on a game set to release later this year, based on the classic cartoon Voltron. Details on the game adaptation are sparse, but if we had to guess we'd say it will involve giant fighting robots. In space.

The game is part of an effort to relaunch the Voltron property in various media incarnations this fall. It will launch alongside Voltron Force, a new 26-episode animated series coming to Nicktoons. Mattel will also be bringing out new Voltron Force toys in 2012. World Event Productions, which owns the rights to Voltron, is hoping to develop a movie adaptation as well.
