News Comments > Steam Guard Beta

Ugh, Steam accounts tied to specific hardware. This pretty much defeats the main good side to Steam DRM, aka being able to use one steam account on multiple systems.

Who would actually volunteer to use this? They claim it's only account MANAGEMENT at the moment, but it seems like this could very quickly become account access, especially as they also seem to be marketing it to developers/publishers.

What a shame, now I'm just going to have to wait 4-5 years for things to come out gog.com

Actually it's a pretty good security feature as long as it isn't too obtrusive and annoying to update if/when you upgrade hardware (since that's what most of us do usually every 2 years).

As for making it a DRM system to block usage on multiple systems, that doesn't make sense since Valve has been actively pushing for cloud computing...

Didn't they announce C&C 4 being the last in the series?

See..This is why no one believes these d-bags. They will continue to milk this series into oblivion and it deserves a better death.

Do any suits in this industry know what the words "LIE" or "Full of shit" mean? Does anyone have a fuckin spine anymore?

Did an entire generation of mothers completely fail at raising their boys into men with a shred of integrity?

What a joke.

C&C4 was the last in the Tiberium-universe RTS games, they never said it'd be the last C&C game. Remember, there's Red Alert, Generals, Renegade, and a couple shelved ideas that don't revolve around the GDI-Nod fight.

Yeah, because they have total control over journalists and all of the websites in the whole Internet thingy.

Oh look! They're erasing your comment right now!

they can request stories to be pulled, and if push came to shove they could get their lawyers to throw their dicks around

its pretty clear that you have some sort of vested interest in defending this game and/or crytek so i dont really expect you to be able to converse on this topic

so you can go back to jerking it to those crysis pics now

Not in defense of the guy, but I love the MO of internet debates...if someone disagrees with you it's because they have a vested interest in a topic.

In theory, debaters should have a vested interest, so in regards, I think you don't quite understand the correct terminology...my guess would be that sticking with the Internet Debaters MO, you're after "you're a shill" argument.

I'm not sure you can judge everything too harshly when it's an alpha build. You may well be correct but still...

Uh... not sure how anyone can claim it's an "alpha build" when it's only a month away from release and came with the "master DRM" keys.

Sounds like it's more like a "post beta" / "release candidate" build, to me.

I dunno, RCs are still pretty buggy in most of my experiences...and hell, most RCs in games that I've dealt with aren't nearly as featured as the final, gold mastered, product.

Not saying that's the case here, but it could very well be a reason.

Funny. Back when consoles did not have hard drives games had to basically be perfect. Did that slow down games being made? No it didn't. Because if it did by now we would be seeing less games than back in 1995.

What we are seeing more of is games that are seriously broken at launch. FO3, FO:NV, GTA4, Witcher (fantastic game but it did have a rough release), GoW PC, BC2 PC, the list goes on and on. We should not have to worry about if a game will work when it is launched. Just if we will like it or not.

To boot there was more hacky, ground breaking hardware back in the late 90's. Which means even more chances of crap not working than today.

Are you really trying to compare the complexity of making a game now to making a game back in the 90s, and trying to use that as a basis to create an argument that game production and release wouldn't be slower if they kept the same type of mentality they did back then? Really?

Hell, I think 3DRealms would love you...

At least we can now see what The Old Republic's space combat will be like.

Sure can, except not here in BGO. BGO's controls aren't on rails.

Matter of fact, for a browser game, it's surprisingly well running.

i'd very suprised if the quality of OnLive is comparative to decent gaming pc - which is so cheap these days.

Be very surprised. Sans a couple hiccups related to my own network, when I tried the beta for the PlayPack Program the system worked pretty comparably to being local.

It's not like it was going to be publicly released anytime soon.
They would have sat on it and it would have been filed away, there's too much profit on the treatments.
I would like to see the thief "leak" it to a public source, so a cure HAD to be released.


Actually, in regards to the different cancer possibilities, prostate is one of the cheapest and least profitable. The only thing that nets them any real revenue is the fact that prostate is a more common cancer type.

Cool! I have this for my iPod touch, iPad and Android 2.2 phone. It's a very good game. These guys have made a ton of money on this.

Let me guess.

You're 35, have 2 kids and think gaming is "super fun".

This game, like you, is a pimple on the hobby's rear end.

Wow...just, wow...

I figure it's the elitist asswads with a chip on their shoulder being the pimple...

including improved planet scanning

...don't improve this. Remove it from the game, it's a total waste of time to go digging for "money". Just attach those rewards to stuff you do in the game or put them in those loot boxes on the planets.

If you're going to let us go to other planets you need to build side quests that involve landing on those planets. EVERY ONE OF THEM. I don't care if it's just mindless combat in cookie cutter landscapes...don't you dare bring back that stupid scan/probe bullshit.

Fire the person who came up with that idea. He sucks at life.

You mean for them to re-implement what they had in ME1 that everyone complained about? Sounds like a very good idea! Inquisitive

The irony is that so many people on Blue's complain about 'paying for betas' that when it's a game that is not even out of alpha has a payment people are rejoicing it going to beta

That said, MC is a great sandbox game. And yes, I expect the whole "yea, MC in alpha is better than almost all of those games post-release" replies, so feel free...I just thought it was a funny dynamic to read.

They already dumped the team for TFU3 I thought.

LA has turned into the worst-managed dev/publisher there is that hasn't folded. They sit on awesome franchise properties but instead shove out sequel junk with no care about anything but speed.

SW Battlefront was good, SW:BF2 was released just 1 year later.
KOTOR was good, KOTOR 2 was shoved out just a year later, forcing tons of content cut and bugs galore, but dammit it HAD to go out only 12 months later!!!
TFU1 showed some promise amongst its many weaknesses, then they release TFU2 a full 2 yrs later but at less than half the size!

Meanwhile, where is the X Wing series? The Jedi Knight series? Empire at War? Indiana Jones (NOT Wii/Lego)? Battlefront (NOT PSP)? KOTOR (NOT MMO)??
Oh that's right, they're letting them rot while they try to find some nebulous "new franchise" to start and then cut off at the knees before they get it right...

The irony is you complain about them sitting on IP when you really are complaining about them not releasing IP in whatever format you want.

You can run for the Strip right from the start with little to fear...however, getting into the Strip and dealing with being so woefully underpowered whenever you decide to try make it a rather uninteresting.

There is a bit of Deathclaw issue right past where you start, but you can actually go around that pretty easily.

I checked to see how long it'd take, it was ~20min of more careful movement to reach Freesboro...

how can you guys be excited for this game when Obsidian Entertainment is behind it?? Obsidian has been on a fail streak for the past 10 years.


I dunno, the fact that the bulk of the main development team was behind the original Fallouts could make most of us rather excited...but that's just a guess.
