Damn, can't afford a subscription at the moment, don't have enough ISK for a plex. I find EVE to be a strange beast, it's a bit slow and I don't find it's PVE interesting, which would normally be a showstopper, but from the first moment I emerged from the starter station and saw a can called "Free gear for new players!" surrounded by wrecks I knew I was home.

as a one off. if you want to play, re sub. i will pay second months plex cost in isk. ccp welcomes you.

PC's still have awsome games, but the concept that console shooters are bad because people dont know how to use a pad is laughable (or they are unwilling to learn because "lol mouse is better").


No control scheme is "better" per se, it's always going to be subjective and based on the genre you're playing but I think if you have someone with equal experience on both input devices(like me) then that person will perform better with a mouse. It allows for more free form aiming at a faster speed which in FPS games is all that really matters.

tl;dr - you're wrong.

I am gonna quote you, not they guy above you (all i have seen till now).

I am not wrong, reason is, i am not saying controller is better. I am a PC gamer mate, always have been always will be i hope. i love the pc. I came to blues due to quake back in the day - i am not arguing about the controls and what is better.

there is a very real reason MS trialed and decided not to allow cross platform gaming for FPS, with regards to xbl.

Mouse and KB are better for control. End of arguement.

that however, does not mean that i dont think that games should not be reviewed , or judged - based on the environment they are played in. some console FPS communitys are like the first quake communitys (halo being one), its a speical place and time for those environments and as long as everyone is on the same page (controller) you should not hessitate to join those communitys.

i love games, both on PC and console, as long as its a good game. the bitter fact is right now, i am playing more shooters on the console than i am on the PC. thats the first time i can say that - i am 33 years old now. weird.

point is, please dont turn my comments in to a "controller vrs mouse thing" i am not making that arguement, i am just saying that consoles have A) good shooters - and B) great shooters communitys.

i have got hopelessly off topic.

gn folks

lol this topic honestly, consoles have lots of very fine shooters; i dont recall a good one comming out on the PC for a long time.

(source games = all old)... is there anything else? i honely cant think of one?

PC's still have awsome games, but the concept that console shooters are bad because people dont know how to use a pad is laughable (or they are unwilling to learn because "lol mouse is better").

Thank you for illustrating exactly how people come up with these jackass ideas: They make them up. Without one shred of evidence you ASSume your train of thought is correct.

In the first 24 hours modern warfare 2 sold 7 million units.

55% were on the xbox 360.
33% were on the PS3.
12% were on the PC.

That was the biggest selling shooter title out recently. all this despite the fact that PC users could get the game without getting off there ass's via steam.

I am afraid boys n girls its about true thesedays, if a shooter is avaiilible on all 3 platforms the PC will get yanked on sales.

Next clever ass answer is MW2 was a console game due to lack of servers; well frankly - id bet next months wage on the Black ops (that will have deadicated servers) being EXACTLY the same in terms of sale figures. For what its worth, i own the game on both the PC and the xbox, despite the controller issues, i play the the 360 more; There are just WAY WAY WAY WAY less people cheating.

And Darksiders is probably still my favorite game to have come out this year so far, I played through it in 2 days on PS3. Couldn't put it down. It's a fairly long game, I just didn't stop playing. Doubt I'll rebuy it on PC though unless they're adding a bunch of stuff.

i got stuck a hour in , (bat queen, ive killed everything cant find how to stop running in cicles - cant find the bitch).... annoying.

shame i was enjoying it. also shame re the delays.

why o why o why do we have Dsmart topics on blues? it ALWAYS turns in to a "lets bash derek" fest, (admittedly he does incite it on occasion). Shame the siutation is as it is, i only hope the people with jobs get to keep there's and also have some job satisfaction, hopefully the battle of the ego's wont get in the way of that.

Actions speak louder than words.

this tbh, the issue for me is that stardock made such a huge deal about what gamers deserve - they consistantly manage to miss thier own targets, and the reasons begining to interest me less and less.

I dont think the whole "never buy a game on release day" arguement stands up thesedays; personally i think launch quality has been going up of late in the industry the annoying thing is this trend is being driven by console development. its having a positive effect on most of the rest of the industry.

shame stardock made mistakes, i dont wish the company anyharm - peoples jobs are important, but on the same note, i wont be giving them any coin unless i see a mass of high score reviews for a game and community feedback, burned one to many times.

I'm assuming Brad is Frogboy, he posted on their forums saying "The game was released finished" then literally a page later said "Every update to the game is essential" when people called him on it. I guess Demigod wasn't just a fluke, sad to see a company blow their good reputation.

Brad is frogboy, and he was a complete douchebag/idiot/ in the way he handled the (admittedly angry) demigod community. It was everyones fault bar his companys about the multiplayer issues. Blame microsoft, Blame router configurations, Blame everyone but the people who failed to test the product.

the annoying thing to me was when he came out and started talking networking and how IP works (allong with a army of supporting fan boys); it was blatantly obvious Brad just didnt get a bunch of things.

I really really dont want to buy a stardock game ever again, and really Frogboy appears to be happy about it; well how is the company going to grow if they continue to be idiots on the listerning to customers PoV OR admit to things being wrong.

IW still used tech3, there engine is based on it.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Id_Tech_3

COD2 and later not listed for id tech 3.

http://www.tweakguides.com/COD2_1.html

mentions they created a new graphics engine on the first page.


maybe i need to make this clearer, the internal IW engine is BASED on opensource Id Tech3 code. (Hence the Id being mentioned in the credits on the game); it is not a Tech3 license - however had ID not chosen to open source there engine things would be very different.

IW did not build a engine from the ground up, they took open source tech3, and modernised it for there own use.

thats the distinction, no matter how they sell it to you, your playing something that started out as a tech3 implementation. thesedays its obviously different; however if you've done any playing about with MW2 on a technical level you will see how its evolved.

in essance you are not wrong, but you dont seem to be aware of the distinction that people are making when they say "based on", its not licensed tech3, but it most certainly is based on it.

will wait for community feedback, jumped on the demigod bandwagon cause of site reviews only to find the game was not working from a multi player point of view at all. lost all confidence in stardock and felt ripped off, sworre id never buy another sd product...

this does look really good tho, so i am tempted . ;-)

I guess there is only me that liked the "sound" of this game, but when i got it i was dissapointed to find the "towns had like 2 nps in them and zero "life", just a fairly bland landscape with 80 billion mobs in it that i could kill and no soul. Poor game, hoping rage has more atmospheare.

tbh the quake live service is a great on if you are in to quake; and its totally cheap.

Hey you know whats cheap? God damn quake 3. Let's see one time fee, Or you could pay forever(few months of premium and you could have just bought the damn game). And get laughed at whenever you mention you pay a monthly fee for a borderline ancient non mmo fps.

ID COMING OUT WITH THESE CRAZY SALES1!

I'll laugh when rage fails like every id related game since quake 3 and they cement their status as just a shitty development team inside the company that made oblivion.

1. Q3 doesnt let you host your own servers at the push of a button at a industry standard data centre.

2. Q3 dosnt have tourney level balance changes.

3. have you tried to connect to a quake server these day from the retail box? clearly not. what with the differing mods, map packs, point releases its a fucking night mare, at least this gives people the chance to play (by your own admission) a great Id title for FREE (yes read it) FREE; if you want whats in the q3 box; you already get all that for free + 1 additional well balanced game type. not to mention the standard account has more maps than q3 out of the box.

4. i aint 12 man, i stoped caring years ago about what people think of me, if i like a service ill pay for it. you dont like it? dont pay for it? what is infuriating to me (personally) is generic hate with baseless arguements; isnt it just enough to say "not for me" and walk away?

5. the premium sub works out at 15 quid a year for me, thats the same as a xbox live arcade game - if i play the new map remakes for it more than 5 hours (already did), i am happy. a pro subscription works out at 40 quid a year; not sure i play enough to warrent getting that personally; but its certainly not massive cash.

like someone said earlyer, its the cost of a pint beer or 2 a month. a beer takes what, 5 mins to drink; so if i enjoy a game of quake live for a hour a month, why is it such a bad thing? thats not event to mention achivements, community , stat tracking that quake live has - to say its the same as quake 3 isnt acurate, its quake 3 with bells and whistles, its certianly the best q3 mod/portal i have ever played and i have been playing since test.

PS: If your argument is based on your general hate of ID, then you have no arguement; just hate, go you - get a cookie.

My Lord, IT IS FREE. You just pay for additional features, the best of them being the ability to spawn private servers up at Id's data centers.

if you want wanna pay monthly dont, youll still be able to play the premium maps if you have a mate on your friends list who is a premium member; they just need to send you a invite in to a server you spawn.

imo its actaully imo a good way of doing this (age of game aside), you dont make it so people cant play the new content; you just make it so someone who is a sub;s payer has to invite them.

tbh the quake live service is a great on if you are in to quake; and its totally cheap.
