News Comments > Borderlands DLC Released
10. Re: Borderlands DLC Dec 9, 2009, 17:30 Lorcin
 
Time to go see if its cracked I guess

Yes because we're the uber PC elite, we want higher resolutions, more options and more freedom. But we're not gonna pay for it.

Seriously stop acting like dicks. It's not like they're charging a premium to let us play on the PC - quite the opposite for base games. Yet still everyone bitches, and then bitch more when people can't be arsed to deal with our bullshit and stop releasing on the PC.

We're being charged the same as a console user for dlc - and whilst I've never tried I imagine XBL or PSN would complain if you wanted to run on 5 consoles at the same time.

Seriously GET OVER YOURSELVES

lol guess the thread which hinted EA might be looking at using DLC to 'secure' base package purchases isn't so weak now. If I hadn't bought Borderlands I'd be looking at cheap options now so I could get the dlc.

Definatly in my top ten this year.

News Comments > EA on "Pirates As A Marketplace"
16. Re: EA on Dec 8, 2009, 21:53 Lorcin
 
I can't believe I'm standing up for EA here, but surely they are doing the sensible thing and tackling the new digital age and the huge explosion of p2p from a new angle?

Don't we read time and time and time again that this is exactly the kind of thinking the music industry needs to combat file sharing.

It's nice to see for once someone, anyone, even EA, is approaching the problem from a new perspective rather then just running around screaming "DIE PIRATES DIE". They also have massively scaled back their DRM which should please people here.

Maybe in a few years those year on year itterations of games EA is so famous for will simply become single BIG bits of DLC.

EA Announces a sequel? No this would never happen. I'm shocked and upset that you of all people would print such blatant lies.

yeah HL here to - I still regulary check the Black Mesa Source page for updates whilst I have exactly zero intrest in the latest HD doom/quake remake.

Edit oh actually thinking back the 2 biggest "WOW" moments for me both came in Unreal - the (then) stunning castle level intro, and the first proper FPS fright when the lights when out as they introduced the Skari really do stick firmly in my mind.

News Comments > Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands PC Plans
15. Re: Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands PC Plans Dec 3, 2009, 18:50 Lorcin
 
This is like making Alien Ressurection when the fucking series ended at Alien 3. It's dumb.

Erm no the series ended when they lost all continuity by killing 2 MAJOR characters before the titles had finished. Aliens is where it ended - not for lack of opportunity but simply a GOD awful script move which they've carried on for the next few movies.

Seriously even now I regret the money I spent on tickets to the most famous/best known cinema in the uk on Alien 3's opening night - and it's 17 years later!

Odeon Leicester you owe me - erm some money (what did tickets cost back then?)

I just hope it has variety than the last one. Loved the new art style but it was definatly overly lonely feeling (there was nowhere you could imagine people ever living - nothing resembaling a town or village) and it was dreadfully repetative. Basically after doing the first level and boss fight you could pretty much have to skipped to the end to see how the plot panned out.

The trouble is the only truly indie hit I can think of recently (Braid) was a console title before it was a PC one.

PCs will really be able to show off how beautiful the game looks at high resolutions

So basically we'll have options to change resolution. Wow what a novel idea.

I don't care if it's the greatest game ever I will never willingly be "Dick Marcinko"

Slightly confused looking, indecisive hero with a jet pack? NO

They got it right with his missus as slut with guns, and Robert Downey Jnr as a alcoholic. But seriously Jetpack <> Confused and Indecisive.

Next announcemnet from them?

My Guess - Johnny Depp as the Night Stalker (http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/2731262/Night-stalker-rapist-charged.html LOOK! we do pyschos too - and it's not me!)

News Comments > No RAGE Dedicated Server?
57. Re: No RAGE Dedicated Server? Nov 6, 2009, 07:32 Lorcin
 
I think it's pretty obvious why Nvidia and Ati are stopping high end GFX on the PC. They honestly don't need to make the cards because nobody NEEDS to buy them!

My aging 8800GT will run EVERYTHING I throw at it, at a higher resolution with more bells and whistles than my 360 can. There are no graphic intensive PC games anymore - it's all multiplatform so who needs to buy a card which can perform way above the baseline (console) performance.

Yes please I'd love to drop 400 on a new card which can display exactly the same game at the same framerate as a 100 card. It's quite probable that if screens weren't locked to 60fps then a 400 card might make a differrence over the 100 card - but I'd never know.

When the next console generation comes out they'll probably be a rush on the cards which can keep up with that generation but after that things will die back down.

Oh and Rage has no dedicated server support because it isn't a game. It's an engine making the interim step to work towards the next iD tech - which carmack and co are desperatly hoping will become the defacto standard for console/pc games on the next generation.

Basically they're trying to wrestle the middleware crown back from Unreal's head and this is their opening gambit.
