Well this news reminded me to check on black mesa again. With DNF released and not as bad as Daikatona - I really wanna play Black Mesa.

So guessing I'm one of the few who really wants to see a motorhead 2 - pity Dice seem to be busy churning out generic shooters.

As for Driver San Fran - it's kinda fun, nothing special. But then you see the TV ad and realise the advert is an awful lot more fun than the game.

Just to explain this a bit better, Driver is like Dead Island; great adverts, run of the mill game.

Sorry but I have a life - no way I'd be allowed to spend Christmas on a game. Maybe in the new year

PC releases occasionally come out months later due to piracy concerns.

PC releases often come out months later because the team is being pressed for time and need to focus on getting a good product out the door by the release date. Rather than let all 3 platforms slip a small amount they let the platform that needs the most individual work yet will sell the least slip for a long amount.

PC releases also often come out months later because a different team works on them and they can't complete until the other versions are done.


But don't let the conspiracy train stop.

I'm not saying if I believe that or not but as I've been a PC Gamer since Doom (1) I honestly have to say PC gamers are the connoisseurs. A well built pc game is like an aged singled malt whiskey - the best the lager boys on the consoles can hope is that their cheap lager doesn't give them too bad a headache.

There's the odd beer like god of war which is worth a nights drinking - but for the most part lets leave the plebs to their lager. Bring on the whiskey.

PS I actually hate whiskey - but vodka didn't fit the tone

Do love the new F1 2011 ad which says "Actual PC Gameplay". You know it'll look nowhere near as good on the consoles.

Killing off people with it early is a bit harsh - the PS3 is secure again for the time being so these people have actually bought the game.

I'd totally agree with you about they just need to up the video quality - but that said anybody playing with the input lag will probably not mind the video (and tbh it looks as good as my wife's laptop can do).

Their not really aiming this at hardcore gamers.

Ignoring my mouse I guess I'm Black Beer. I can live with that.

Do have to wonder how many people on the internet will be named Nude Used Kleenex.

News Comments > Cancelled Avengers Game Footage
22. Re: Cancelled Avengers Game Footage Sep 18, 2011, 22:19 Lorcin
 
The Iron Man stuff looked too slow, hulk too weak - for instance the impact at 1:48 really needed something, anything, even a screen shake would have been good.

Couldn't care less about captain america. And the brief thor footage again just hugely lacking in power - it looked like he was running under water.

I know this was pre-alpha etc but it stunk of movie tie-in and 50% average review scores already and I think the general public are finally realising that for the most parts movie tie-ins aren't worth the money.

Following the epic trailer the game did creep me out for 10 minutes until I got outside - after that I uninstalled it. Damn glad I didn't pay for it - zombie fps means bad guys who move slow, are stupid and can't attack from range. Or in other words zombie fps < doom 1.

As for gay options, they're pretty popular in Bioware games, and not just with gay people. Plus I imagine that little bit of validation might be a selling point for gay gamers who know how rare it is.

And could really help keep down the kid factor when Fox in the US and the Daily Mail over hear start screaming how wrong it all is.

Your wrong Blue - it leads to the opticians for your messed up weakened eye and the pharmacists for headache tablets.

Wait, won't this get the game canned? Lucas is a homophobe who has long and staunchly maintained that homosexuality does not exist in his galaxy.

I tend to agree - we've got a 3d tv but aside from kids films and the odd game we very rarely watch it in 3d (UK have had a 3d channel all year). I'll occupationally watch the footy in 3d but tend to stick to the 2d version .

Until it is glasses free this really won't take off - btw out of 5 of us my wife and 2 youngest have no problem with the glasses, I don't like them but can make it too halftime (45mins) before needing a break. My 12 year old can't get on with them at all.

Offtopic:

I just used the phrase "joypad" - but tbh I should have used "controller" because apparently "joy-anything" now also feels pretty well erm gay. So gay is gay, joy is rapidly becoming gay (no thanks really to the thrustmaster line of joysticks)- how long until all positive adjectives seem a bit homosexual?

Nope all good here - really enjoyed the first game. It was a light, brainless waste of time which was a million times more enjoyable than nearly anything on TV.

I don't need specific GFX options - can set them in my GPU control panel. Can't think of much else except another gaming equivalent of a Michael Bay film (not smart, not clever, not deep, not particularly engaging - but kinda fun, and even more fun with mates and beer).

Ohhhhhhh one little request which would be underused but still worth smacking M$ in the face for - how about native support for a PS3 joypad. I'd never use a joypad for a FPS but hey if your asking then yeah - could you bitch slap microsoft please?

I've tried to avoid the hype - but it does bug me that the DE:HR reviews on metacritic give it 89% across 3 platforms. One platform will ALWAYS be stronger and I'm hoping Dead Island is strongest on PC (I'll buy it when it hits 5 in a sale in about 18 months).

No, no. That's DOS Full HD.

Omg that's kinda scary - at what point are games going to be remade into "Total 3d HD with large fries and a Coke".

I played one of the first ever FPS (Phantom Maze on the Dragon32/TSR80) and can honestly say - it doesn't keep up with new games. So why keep releasing relatively new games with a half-arsed GFX upgrade?

I remember every one of you Blues regulars spooging over Invisible War.

Actually whilst I did happily track down a post from icewind saying he didn't like IW back in 2007 - I'm not sure if spooging is a good or a bad thing. Honestly - I like sponge cake - but I'm none to keen on poo. So is spoog bad or good????
