News Comments > Neverwinter Nights 2 Platinum on Steam

I quite liked NWN2 and its expansions, damnit. IMO, people have no concept of what a "bad game" really is. Go pick up a copy of Shellshock 2 or Rogue Warrior, see how that turns out.

Someone please explain to me why Interplay gets so much hate. I canīt really remember what happened between them releasing good games and them half-dying.

News Comments > Op Ed
4. Re: Op Ed Dec 20, 2010, 11:39 Rilcon
 
I liked the way health worked for the marine in AvP. You had 3 regenerating bars, that once debpleted needed a health kit to refill. A light injury would take half a bar, a normal one a full bar, and headshots and the like 2+ bars.

And the bad thing about how ME2 dealth with enemy health on higher difficulty levels is some of skill/powers didn't fit with the system. I started off on Hardcore then Insanity after that, and remember checking Normal (or whatever fancy term they used) and thinking "Wait, these guys only have a single HP bar, wth?"

Obsidian was making an Aliens RPG, but that got cancelled about a year back.

Pray to god Reb doesn't make a sequel. Better nothing at all than something that'll rape the memory of a good game.

What does "resize" mean in the context of a MMO?

(Never played an MMO except for Ultima Online beta.)

Just means you can resize the client when in windowed via click-drag like a normal window.

Every blasted EVE article has the same damn comments. I think next time Blue should just c/p the comments from previous ones so people can just move on to something else.

News Comments > PC Fable 3 Not Dead
17. Re: PC Fable 3 Not Dead Nov 18, 2010, 08:07 Rilcon
 
Well I personally DISAGREE. A "normal" menu system would have likely been better, especially for PC, but I'm comparing to the Fable 1 and 2 menus here.

As for the game being short, it depends on what you do. My first time through I just blitzed through the main quest in about 8 hours. Second time now I'm roughly a third through the game, actually doing sidequests and exploring, and have put another 16 hours into it.

Meh, I find it fun. I'm not playing it expecting a game like BG2, just a some hack and slash with some minor stat building and exploration.

It's called progress.

Sarcasm, I hope? Turning a quick and simple process into a slow and tedious process doesn't quite qualify as progress.

Compared to the nightmare that were the Fable 1 (PC) and 2's menus, 3's are silly fast and easy to navigate. There's a lot of stuff in the game I disagree with, but the menus are a big step forward from the previous game in pretty much all aspects as far as I'm concerned.

Well I quite liked all three games, and am still replaying the latest. Chances are I'll rebuy it on PC if it gets any worthwhile additions.

I thought the pacing was perfect. Having played it on day one, when I started off thinking it would be just a few challenge rooms to show off new tech, I thought it was great. I wasn't bored or stuck at any point during the game and had a jolly good time the whole way through.

Oh, he's getting laid off next month. Well, Harden The Fuck Up; most people get 10 minutes notice when they're "let go". If the situation was so dire for so long he should've already had a solid fallback plan.

The gametime in this new retail box can't be used for existing accounts; all it can be used for it to add time to a new account.

I'd only be amazed if people get angry at valve over this. Game has been constantly supported and updated since launch and is quite mod-friendly. Only change I see id the new items will now mostly be slit between the people that pay for them, and the people that somehow spend four or more hours a day playing.

I'm normally a pretty nice guy, but I really really hope Kotick a terrible, painful, slow death, and soon. Guy seems intent on destroying something meant to bring joy.

2. Re: EVE Online Incursion Expansion in November Sep 21, 2010, 14:23 Rilcon
 
PvPers are hoping for a new (old) cyno effect, engine trails, and mildly hopeful about rocket rebalance. Otherwise bitter as usual.

Oh my god, it just hit me; DNF is no longer vaporware, we just lost some of the games' industry's best "never gonna happen" sayings.

The benefit over Paypal is it's not Paypal.

As for over a credit or debit card, no effect on me. I do know some countries / banks have silly rules in regards to their use online. May be this is intended for people to drop, say, 50 euro in bulk one day via a non-instant money transfer, then have that money there to buy whatever instantly some other day.

Or something.

Gotta remember, this game owes us for all the terrible time people have spent voluntarily reading about it.

News Comments > Bloody Good Time Announced
8. Re: Bloody Good Time Announced Sep 2, 2010, 15:43 Rilcon
 
No. I personally don't think it looks interesting and I hate exagerated, cartoonish artstyles.

It just irks me that for some reason every time there's an article about an indie or small studio game, the bitching and bitterness are even higher than usual. Loads of formulaic games from established studios seem to get a free pass from the comment hate train.

I guess it might just be that people are so bitter about those that they don't even bother to post; like there's no carcass left to beat so they need to find a fresher horse to whack.
