A good price but I swore off giving UBI another dime. Tired of their horrible console-to-pc ports.

Very cool. I am crossing my fingers this isn't a shitty console port. Put some damn effort into making it for PCs.

Vivindi do yourself a favor and separate Blizzard from Activision immediately.

Vivendi has nothing to do with it any more. Activision bought Blizzard and was the bigger of the two (although WoW accounts for half of the company's revenue).

News Comments > ARMA 2 Movie
11. Re: ARMA 2 Movie Mar 7, 2009, 00:24 Donkey_Punch
 
ArmA 2 is looking to be more of a simulation.

I disagree. They have expressed interest in removing realism to make the game more accessible to a larger audience. I think Arma 2 will be much closer to BF2 or Joint Operations by Novalogic than anyone expects. Sure the world will still be huge but I think you will have much more deathmatch gameplay and more running around getting amazing shots with M249s while standing and moving.

so your saying they fixed Arma to actually RUN ok?

Not yet. They finally released after almost 1.5 years a beta patch that fixes most of the major issues. It is still a beta patch though and BIS is known for screwing up and suddenly releasing buggy untested changes in the final patch.

Time will tell.

We still need a Linux server patch. As usual the community is split between different versions because they take forever to update the dedicated servers.

Flashpoint1 was made by the same people who make Arma & Arma2 and they all share the same bug-ridden game engine

Fixed your typo for you.

Part of the success must also be the "sales" factor. People love saving money and when they hear the word "sale" they open their wallets. I know this works for my wife, lol.

You need the $50 games still for this to work. The customers need to feel they are smarter than everyone else for buying the game on sale rather than the full priced games.

This came out in December. Not bad, 2 months late covering it.

I played OPF to death and there hasn't really been a battlefield type game of the same scope since. BF2 came close

BF2 came close?! Man, that is like comparing the first Rainbow six game to CounterStrike.

Ya piracy caused this problem...right. It has nothing to do with the fact that PC Gamers have been burnt enough by UBI that now when they see that logo they know it really means "shitty unsupported arcade console port inside".

Yup, all about piracy.

I wouldn't be surprised if UBI makes the new Ghost Recon game a port. It certainly is the direction they have been headed (ie look at Rainbow Six series now all horrible arcade ports)

PC Game Sales Fall 14% in 2008. If you don't count digital distributionů

Exactly it. I barely bought any new games in 2008, expect for those on Steam.

Besides, almost all the 2008 titles were steaming piles of manure. Come out with better games that aren't crappy ports and I will buy them.

GW was just a poor man's WoW but without the great touches that made WoW a hit.

News Comments > WoW Death Knights Expand
46. Re: WoW Death Knights Expand Jan 9, 2009, 17:11 Donkey_Punch
 
The problem with Death Knights is that when you create one at 55 they level far too quickly. Why does it take so long for my regular toon to get to lvl 56 but my Death Knight can get there in 3 easy quests? It took my DN a few hours of very easy questing to earn 30g. I didn't farm and I didn't manufacture anything since I didn't have any professions yet.

They have completely screwed the balance of the game.

Thats a new excuse, the economy.

Of course everyone knows it was PIRACY! Somalian pirates have a duplicating machine aboard their ships.

Vegas = arcade console crap and the icing was that it was a buggy port.

Ya, if you think Gears of Wars is a good game then I am sure you would also like Vegas.

"Police in the Bahamas are disagreeing with John Travolta's staff in the wake of the New Year's Day death of his son Jett, 16, at the Old Bahama Bay Hotel about how long the teenager lay undiscovered in the bathroom.

Police are reporting that Jett was left alone for more than ten hours from when he was last seen heading to his bedroom at the Travolta's vacation townhouse at 6 PM after a day of boating with his family. Jett's nanny, Jeff Kathrein, reportedly found Jett lying on the bathroom floor at 11:30 PM."
