3. Re: Arcania Jun 15, 2009, 09:56 CJ_Parker
 
Gone are the times where you actually had to block, dodge and time your attacks.

WTF are you even talking about? The Gothics have always had a very basic and simplistic combat system. Dodging was never even an option. In none of the games. An option or a key to dodge just plain never existed in any of the Gothic games. Are you on drugs?
And blocking, while at least an option, was just a massive waste of time that only a complete n00b would have made use of. I never used it on any of my numerous replays of the Gothic games (cuz I am in fact not a n00b).
Seriously, attacking with well timed, quick left/right blows has always been much more effective as you could basically put your opponent in a stun-lock that way. There are videos of people who went to kill the black troll (for those who don't know that's one of the most powerful beasts in Gothic 2 NotR) in NotR with just left/right swinging as newbie characters on level 1. You can easily get through all three games just using two keys in combat.
Feel free to praise the classic Gothics for all sorts of good shit and I will very likely agree with you since they are (among) my most favorite games ever but a complex or intricate combat system has never been a trademark of the series. Combat has in fact always been one of the few weak points of the series.

News Comments > Max Payne 3 Details?
32. Re: Max Payne 3 Details? Jun 11, 2009, 12:08 CJ_Parker
 
The fact that Max is bald and pudgy worries me more than a cover system.

What worries me even more is that all you tards are so severely limited in your thinking. Now imagine if Max would actually *GAAASSSSPPPP* change appearance during the course of the game and turn from a fat, bald Max Payne into a... well, OK, he's probably not going to grow hair but into a physically fit Bruce Willis "Die Hard" type of dude. I'd say that's a definite possibility and would add a nice creative touch to the game. Maybe getting rid of his addiction and fighting drug lords is even going to be a central element of the gameplay and story. You know like this one Rocky movie when Rocky was fat and totally out of shape and then struggled his way back to the top. With what has been revealed here, I have a hunch that MP3 will be heavily borrowing from that kind of theme.

News Comments > German Violent Game Ban?
15. Re: German Violent Game Ban? Jun 6, 2009, 18:38 CJ_Parker
 
The number 1 reason for this ban is that we got elections coming up in September 2009 and that the recent amok run of Winnenden is still fresh on people's minds (where a 17 year old shot 15 people and himself). This ban is an easy way for our politicians to prove that they are able to act and not just talk. Even stricter gun laws are also in the making. This video game ban is just a small part of a post-Winnenden public care package. It probably also helps that players of violent video games are in the vast minority or simply not old enough to vote.

Regress of freedom par excellence. Actually it fits quite good into the other shit thats going on in Germany right now. Some people even compare it to the time when the nazis established similar restrictions and such comparisons arent even that far fetched anymore...

What a dumb comment. I am German and I have absolutely no idea what that "other shit" is that you are referring to. And I don't think there are words to describe just how utterly retarded the Nazi comparison is.

but it will have to be edited cos Barbie likes wears her short skirt & low cut tops.

What part of "violent" did you not understand? You can show as much tits and ass in German games, on German free TV and in German magazines as you like. This ban is about violence and gore, not nekkid chiXX.

[DEAD HORSE]

Sick of this life
Not that you'd care
I'm not the only one with
whom these feelings I share


Nobody understands, quite why we're here
We're searchin' for answers
That never appear


But maybe if I looked real hard I'd
I'd see your tryin' too
To understand this life,
That we're all goin' through
(Then when she said she was gonna like
wreck my car...I didn't know what to do)


Sometimes I feel like I'm beatin' a dead horse
An I don't know why you'd be bringin' me down
I'd like to think that our love's
worth a tad more
It may sound funny but you'd think by now
I'd be smilin'
I guess some things never change
Never change


I met an old cowboy
I saw the look in his eyes
Somethin' tells me he's been here before
'Cause experience makes you wise
I was only a small child
When the thought first came to me
That I'm a son of a gun and the gun of a son
That brought back the devil in me


Sometimes I feel like I'm beatin' a dead horse
An I don't know why you'd be bringin' me down
I'd like to think that our love's
worth a tad more
It may sound funny but you'd think by now
I'd be smilin'
I guess some things never change
Never change


I ain't quite what you'd call an old soul
Still wet behind the ears
I been around this track a couple o' times
But now the dust is startin' to clear
Oh yeah!!!


Sometimes I feel like I'm beatin' a dead horse
An I don't know why you'd be bringin' me down
I'd like to think that our love's
worth a tad more
It may sound funny but you'd think by now
I'd be smilin'
Ooh yeah, I'd be smilin'
No way I'd be smilin'
Ooh smilin'


Sick of this life
Not that you'd care
I'm not the only one

Hey, this is Blues... any flaw in the game means it's HORRIBLE, not even worth $20, and deserves to be pirated.

Yeah, unless it's a Blizzard or BioWare game. Bio and Blizz could piss and poop these assclowns in the face and they'd still say it's just raining milk and honey from the heavens above.

Dude?!? WTF?!? Did you seriously make a typo spelling "boobs" or what was that editing for?

As for the footage that looks like generic shooter garbage and not like something that should've taken them years. They also should have evolved the gameplay and the character of Duke and not just have made a DN3D clone. Finally they should just STFU and die and quit leaking. It's fucking disgusting.

Not only are half the things you post as factual (like Activision's controling interest in the Vivendi merger that isn't correct) wrong

Learn to read, dimwit. I don't think I ever said "controlling interest". I think I said "dominant partner" and I got that from here (http://www.gamasutra.com/php-bin/news_index.php?story=16458) which is one of the most reputable resources for the business side of the video gaming world. I fully well know that Vivendi has the majority in stocks (52% if I recall correctly). Activision is still regarded as the dominant partner, however, since they got to appoint the CEO of the merged company.

For the record that makes CJ 2 - You 0

What is this the 50's witchhunt? George Orwell's 1984? Get some education or drop the clueless innuendo, how the hell do you pull something like that out of your ass and ever expect to be taken seriously again???

Dude, with a sig like mine I don't think I'm exactly in the business of being taken seriously in general . Besides I just thought that this other dude was a bit clueless about the business side of things. OK. Fine. "Anti-corporate commie cunt" mighta been a bit harsh but as a troll you gotta do what a troll gotta to do, ya know?

CJ, there's an actual link to a JR conference call where he says its partly due to adding to their quarterly financials.

Again... where? Link? If you google for Dragon Age's delay and JR the only thing that comes up is a conference call with investors where JR stated exactly what Derek "Crush" French from BW posted earlier in this thread (check here: http://www.shacknews.com/onearticle.x/57070 ).

Why anyone would bother to make something like that up is just silly.

Well, there's a lot of silly and retarded people in the world and wherever you got your info from there's plenty of both.

I realize your whole meaning in life is to troll Blue's, though you should know what you're talking about while trolling, other wise you just come off as a moron.

Unlike you I have been able to prove my point with a link to what JR actually said while you insist on him saying something completely retarded that he most certainly never ever said to anyone. Anyone with half a brain and the slightest bit of an idea of how businesses work and operate would know that what you claim he said is beyond retarded.

Having read a little of your posting history I'm actually convinced you're an idiot anyway

Why? Because I keep exposing dumbass pot-smoking anti-corporate commie cunt liars like yourself who make up stuff that suits their agenda time and again? Fine. If that makes me an idiot I'm pretty damned proud of it, son. In this case at least I'm an idiot with a clue and with proof that your claims are all made up BS.

Feel free to search thru this thread as its linked in there, I'm not about to go through some 100 pages to find it for you.

Ah OK. So you're saying that the EA boss has posted on the DA forums to say that they delayed the game for higher quarterly earnings in Q4/2009? Now that's very likely. Not.
Or are you saying that some other random anti-corporate dumbass like yourself has posted to the thread making up bullshit about what the EA boss never said? Aaaahhh. B-I-N-G-O.

Their other reason was to save money and market both the PC and 360 versions at the same time.

Yes, Sir. That was the main reason according to BioWare's Derek French who posted this info in this very thread. No need to play the parrot here. We can read, y'know.

Except that EA boss specifically said the delay was to bolster EA's quarterly financials.

Yeah, right. Quote?
I'm much more inclined to believe inside people like Crush than some random dumbass like you until you can provide a link to a quote.

9. Re: Anno 1404 Delay Apr 29, 2009, 09:50 CJ_Parker
 
Slippery Jim is right. You are full of shit, theyarecomingforyou. There have been MAJOR protests (check this one out for starters - people actually went to Ubi German HQ to rally against the poor support of several games: http://ubi.spiderfighter.de/) against UbiSoft's support policies. They always release buggy games and then patches take forever to come out or are never released.
I also have to wonder about your very low standards. Games like the Ghost Recon games or Vegas 1 + 2 should be performing much better than they do. They sport rather poor performance in comparison to their visual quality. They should be looking much better for how poorly they perform.
All of this shit luckily doesn't affect me anymore since I have long stopped buying Ubi games at full price. I only buy Ubi games from the bargain bin or from GOG these days. With the latest patches most of their games are at least playable which is just about all you can hope for with a Ubi game.

I was planning on keeping XP on my desktop, mostly for older games, and 7 on my laptop, but now I think I'll just switch both to 7.

Dude, plan again. Unless Microsoft has somehow found a way to squeeze a couple magnitudes more of CPU power out of their virtualization solution for XPM there's no way that you are going to be able to run any 3D games at a reasonable performance level.
Now if with "older games" you meant some really, really, really old shit that uses only a software renderer and no hardware 3D rendering or DirectX then I ain't said nothin'. That might work out.
But you can right now very safely forget about anything "real" 3D using DirectX unless you're into slideshows. XPM is definitely a corporate feature, not a gamer feature.

Can’t argue with that! They’ve been writing cheap melodramas for 14 year old megalomaniacs since 2001.

I think you're giving them too much credit with the 14 year old part (try 6 year old next time) and there shoulda been more profanity to emphasize your point but overall you hit the nail on the head. To this very day I still just can't believe that the shallow, generic SHIT that BioWare keeps dumping on top of us is referred to as the pinnacle of story-telling in video games. BioWare games and I mean all of them are generic, boring, predictable (in the saw it coming from one billion lightyears category way), retarded emo pieces of shit.
But as always there's the million flies problem who are attracted to just this shit. It's kinda sad that people don't die from bad taste. That would solve a helluva fucking lot of probs at once *sigh* .

The stealth bits were completely optional with one exception. You could not steal the saddle from that old farmer without using some stealth to get inside the house. That part took all of five minutes max if you didn't rush shit. All other so called "stealth" levels were completely and totally optional. I for one killed every single fucking Apache instead of sneaking around the fuckers (too time consuming).
So this game had 5 minutes of required sneaking out of 20 or so total hours. Anyone who complains about those five minutes is a retard and needs to learn how to play games, you know, like, explore other options and radical shit like that. Srsly.
