Seeing what they promised, and what we're getting two years after, I wouldn't put too much faith in all of this. Who knows what they'll do in another 6/8 months?.

For the life of me, I don't understand why all companies don't encrypt their databases, all the information, not just certain parts of it like credit card information.

Encrypting and decrypting costs CPU time. If instead of crypting/decrypting something just when you login or make a transaction, you have to do it every single page you load, then you need a ton more servers to handle the same load.

As for the news: FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK.

MechWarrior Online...

Puke

Sorry. I just keep getting sick in these threads. I think it's the "online" part. Uh-oh...

Oh, dear.. how could RedLynx let themselves get bought by the worst publisher out there?

First Nadeo, now this. Goddamned Ubi.

Stunned - That's how I am right now. Why get everyone excited with that awesome teaser trailer for a game that's nothing but a shitty multiplayer mech arena game that will bear no resemblance whatsoever to what was show in the trailer?

Why

seems like youve been on this planet a little while, so you should know this already, but since im such a helpful person i will summarize it for you:

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$...

and so on

I don't know how MW will be received by the younger generations, but for those of us who played the BG in the 80's and where promised a MW2-MW4 style reboot by Piranha, this MMO is a fucking travesty.

Everyone I know that loved BT is really angry about this and is not going to play the game. They're shooting themselves in the foot with this.

Fucking publishers: X-Com reboot -> FPS. Syndicate reboot -> FPS. Mechwarrior reboot -> P2W MMO. Age of Empires reboot -> P2W shitty farmville clone.

What's next?. A Wing Commander third person shooter with cover based combat?.

Yep. Kotick will say that if not for piracy, they would have sold 14 billion units. On PC.

Yeah, probably that's Yevat Cerli doing the numbers.

That narration was pathethic. And the music in the Heart of the Swarm trailer was almost directly from any of the Call of Duty videos.

Blizzard can't even do trailers right anymore.

Bah. Between this, and Age of Empireville Online, it looks like the worst from Ensemble did go to Robot.

Where did the rest go?. I know that Greg Street is at Blizzard (talent wasted with B.Net) and that Sandy teaches Game Design, but I don't know about the rest.

Oh, Bruce Shelley also helped with Settlers. Why do the best always end up in shitty companies like Ubi and Zynga?. The ICC should look at this.

Surely that's a good thing?

You mean the fact that it's using CryENGINE or the fact that they only need programmers?.

If it's the former, I don't think it is a good thing.

Does the Collector's Edition have offline single player and offline LAN support?. Because otherwise it's as useless as the Standard Edition.

It's sad to see Carmack like this. YOU fucked up, man up and admit it.

It seems that every company that decides to sell to consoles ends up rotting, and blaming PC for it. Shame on you, id.

*sigh* one of my favorite single player franchises now with horse shit DRM.

Good going PC pirates, you wonder why nobody takes your glorious master race seriously anymore.

Wrong as always, Rattlehead.

Oh, well. Bye bye, STALKER 2. Glad we're getting lots of fantastic games for the supposedly dying PC.

It's absolutely absurd that nVidia and AMD have to scramble to get drivers out for a game to "run right". It's not their responsibility... it's the developers. Period. I don't give a shit what tech they put under the hood... if you release a game it should fucking WORK with basic DirectX or OpenGL API... anything extra fancy... yeah... can wait for a driver.

This

wtf_man wrote on Oct 5, 2011, 16:31:
That said, the texture popping, and the auto-adjust BS is CRAP... and it was Carmack's decision to do so. So, yes, IMO, he has fallen... he's too busy playing with his fucking rockets.

And this, absolutely. I don't care if he was launching rockets or pushing for Quake 5, this auto-adjust shit is completely beneath him and everything he has stood for the last 20 years.

I wasn't happy with D3 or Q4, but what we're seeing in Rage is.. raging. Way to piss all over your reputation, id.

Thanks, Blue, excellent preview.

Sound good, but sadly the restrictions Blizzard has imposed (beginning with the online only and closed regions) are a total deal breaker for me. And they're not going to change.

Hope to see some impressions from you when Torchlight 2 is released, assuming you'll also get it.

Multiplayer, I might like, but only if it's online and offline. And if it doesn't affect the single player.

Don't fuck it up like Dead Space 2. In both counts.
