News Comments > Vaporware 2008
21. Re: Vaporware 2008 Dec 30, 2008, 09:37 CJ_Parker
 
I've purchased several games from Steam, and the totally cool part about it all is that I've reinstalled the various games quite a few times, and moved them from hard drive to hard drive, and every time I wanted to play the game it was always there. I even deleted the local content of some of the games, and then re-downloaded the games when I wanted to play them.

Wow!!! Duuuudddeeee!!!! So what you're saying is that you have actually used Steam the way it is intended to be used?!? How "totally cool" is that? Here. Quick. Let me rub one off for you .

It's all been very easy and convenient, and it's like always having the games available, without having any discs in drives. IMHO, convenience FTW ....

Convenience of being able to install a game in under five minutes from a disc > the "convenience" of waiting five hours or more for your 6, 7 or 8GB+ download to finish. I mean even if you're really, really messy you should be able to beat those five hours searching and actually finding the disc in that pile of trash you call home.

Don't get me wrong. I don't have much against Steam ("nothing" would be a lie) but I'll never get why people would find any convenience in the fact they can wait hours and hours (more like DAYS or even WEEKS if you have a large games collection) for their download(s) to finish.
I can easily see the convenience (and have taken advantage of it myself) of purchasing or obtaining a game online. Especially some of the hard-to-find-at-retail classics which have the additional bonus of usually not being overly excessive in the MB/GB department.
But newer games that can be easily purchased in the store around the corner? Nope. Unless you live way out in the boonies it's much more convenient to just grab a copy and have at it.

From what I know you don't have to sign up for it at all, it's just a tool to upload videos/replays/whatever.

Ah OK. Thanks for the clarification. Then that's a "don't give a fuck" as well. So there's only the disc check that's a minor annoyance for me but what game doesn't require the disc in the drive? Right. Barely any. I'm a man. I can deal with it. The rest of y'all are pussies. Big fat meaty pink PUSSIES!!!

The game will include SecuROM copy protection

Fine. Don't give a fuck.

...and will require one-time online authentication...

Fine. Don't give a fuck.

...and will also require the game disc in the drive to play...

Not fine. Give a bit of a fuck because it is a minor annoyance but I have two DVD drives so it won't be too bad keeping the disc where it belongs.

GTA IV PC also requires a number of software installations, including Games For Windows, Adobe Flash, Internet Explorer, SecuROM...

All fine. Don't give a fuck.

...and our Rockstar Games Social Club application...

Not fine. Do give a major fuck. That's potentially really annoying especially if you can't register with totally fake data. If they even dare think about using my email address for any "other purposes" then that's the last 2K/Rockstar game I have ever bought. Luckily I have a lot of throw-away email accounts so the spam would only be a temporary issue but I'd never buy a game from them again just out of principle if all they want is to mine my data for advertising purposes.

News Comments > Star Wars: The Old Republic Interview
8. Re: Star Wars: The Old Republic Interview Nov 27, 2008, 13:41 CJ_Parker
 
The whole "2 Sith Rule" makes very little actual sense. The Galaxy contains how many lifeforms? I think I read that the planet Coruscant alone contained almost 3 trillion lifeforms. 2 Sith for the entire galaxy??! Something is very wrong with that scale. Or I am understanding it completely wrong? Or can their be multiple Master/Apprentice combinations?

Why would the scale be wrong if they gotz all tha pow3r? During the period of Episodes IV - VI two Sith lords ruled over (almost) the entire galaxy. There is also always only one Supreme Chancellor for example. Similarly "Sith" is just a term for the most powerful dark force users at a given time and usually refers to the Sith lords. Sith is not a race like it originally was before the term was adopted by dark force users. The term Sith has evolved from the description of a force-sensitive race to the description of a group of dark force users and finally it ended up as a description for the two most powerful dark force wielders in the galaxy.

Also the Sith don't need great numbers since their means of acquiring power are different. Deceit, treachery, manipulation are the ways of the Sith. They use and abuse people around them to become powerful or if there aren't enough people, well, then they create clone armies and stuff like that .
They are very clever and inventive when it comes to power games and so power-hungry that they would exterminate themselves if there were more than two at a time. That's why the rule of two was established in the first place. At one time in history the Sith were killing each other more than anything else and so one of the famous Sith lords established the rule of two for self-preservation of the Sith class.

It's a side effect of forcing a game to full 3D when all evidence says isometric would be fine.

Nope. It's actually a side effect of Obsidian being fucking n00bs. There are 1000s of full 3D games where the camera is working fine. This is definitely an issue of incompetence. Just like the lack of basic RPG/RTS-style party control (remember the lack of multiselect anyone?) upon the game's release. How they could possibly "forget" to include such basic features is way beyond my imagination. Obsidian need to go back to game design school and start over from the beginning. That bunch of amateurs.

Read the interview...

If you actually believe a dev if they say that the development of a popular sequel is "just a rumor" then you are even more retarded than I thought previously. There are literally hundreds of examples where a dev denied that a game was in existence and when the game was all of a sudden officially revealed shortly after. Happens all the time.

I'm sure he is currently spending his days in a small room without any internet connection for many years to come.

Why the fuck are you sure of that if the fucking news article itself actually fucking says that he was sentenced to fucking probation (read: he was just told to not do it again or else...)? Lurn 2 phuckin' r33d, d00d!!11

News Comments > Microsoft's Steamy Ambitions
13. Re: Microsoft's Steamy Ambitions Nov 13, 2008, 09:14 CJ_Parker
 
When it comes to an interface between you and your games it needs to be tight and mostly fluff free. Steam has more or less achieved this.

Rather less than more. Steam still takes up to a minute or more to start up after you click the shortcut. WTF is up with that? It should open up instantly or at least give you some indication that it is running and trying to connect. Instead there's nothing at all going on until after a minute or so the login window finally pops up saying "conncecting Steam account xxx". And then you get the same laggy BS when you launch a game... "preparing to launch xxx" for half a minute before the game is executed. That's complete bullshit.
The game should start immediately but no... of course Steam first has to transfer our user statistics (can you say spyware?) to Valve before it will let us play.
Steam after all these years still sucks giant loads of ass.

Seriously. The question isn't whether MS could do better. The question is how could they possibly fuck up more than Valve?

Steam games are more expensive than retail games, Steam games come with built-in spyware ("user statistics" - yeah, right), and Steam itself is laggy and intrusive (you need to disable a whole lot of shit before it becomes bearable).

That sounds exactly like something Microsoft could or would do as well. It's funny how people are willing to give Valve a free pass for all this shit though just "cuz their kewl cuz tehy liek made Count0r Str1Ke d00d!!111!!!one!!

I wish they would close this shitty game and work on Battlefield 3 like everyone wants. Fucking assholes. I mean they can't look at this game and see it's totally worthless, even though it's free, it's waste of money and resources that could be put to something worthwhile like Battlefield 3.

Caveman not good at brainy stuff. Caveman live in cave and be very stupid, yes?

Just because Battlefield 3 hasn't been announced yet doesn't mean it's not in development already. I would bet both my testicles that a sequel to BF 2142 is already in the works in parallel to Heroes. Where did you get the retarded idea that EA is always only working on one game at a time, Caveman? Oh well, nevermind. Back to the cave you go. Dumbass Neanderthal.

Jesus fucking christ, another fantasy based MMO? D&D or not, we need another fantasy game like we need a hole in the head.

You, Sir, already seem to have a hole in the head. And it's apparently leaking a lot of brain, too...

Dumbass.

Avellone is probably the best game writer alive

Not untrue but it's certainly a very sad state of affairs when we have to refer to Mr. Chris "Generic-Fantasy-Story-Now-Only-A-Dime-A-Dozen" Avellone as the "best game writer". The mediocre stuff he puts out would be dumped in the trash bin by the lectorate intern at any half-serious book publishing house. Really sad. Gaming desperately needs better writers and more creativity.

1. Hotness factor of Alison Carroll Nov 2, 2008, 16:46 CJ_Parker
 
An Interview with Lara Croft on bit-tech.net talks with Lara Croft model Alison Carroll about how hot she is.

Ummm... WTF? If I would of conducted that interview about "how hot she is" there woulda been ONE question. "Can I fuck you?". OK. Make that two questions. "When?".
Those bit-tech tards wasted a perfect opportunity to get laid here. Dumbfucks.

News Comments > Crysis Wars 64-Bit Client & Linux Server Next Week
8. Re: Crysis Warhead 64-Bit Client & Linux Server Next Week Nov 2, 2008, 09:56 CJ_Parker
 
What's the actual relevance of a 64-bit version?

The most obvious advantage is that the game client will be able to make use of 4GB+ RAM (or ~3.25GB+ RAM in practice since that is the practical limit of WinXP 32-bit due to reserved system memory) in a full 64-bit environment (64-bit client and OS).
The big question in that context obviously is whether the game client is made to perform better (= scaling) when there is more free memory available. Only time and benchmarks will tell.

So you act like a little child that needs his ass wiped because you know Blue is less likely to ban you? Good on ya.

Actually, yup, that's what I said down there. Thank you, Mr. Parrot, Sir! You seem to be a quick learner and a smart cookie.

@necrosis: Did you even read my whole post, idiot? I even said it's their premier title as a developer but to someone who "stays on top of gaming every day" the name seriously should have rung more than one bell. They are a very well known publisher and the name has often times come up even on US sites well before The Witcher was even conceived. It doesn't really surprise me though that for someone from the US the horizon ends at New Jersey beach.

Funny. All you people usually do is bitch about how EA is dumbing down their games and how there is no choice and consequence to your actions and all that shit. Now they do give you plenty of choice and some really "nice" consequences on top of it, too, and it's still not right? WTF is wrong with you guys?

BTW, I honestly and sincerely welcome this move. It will make all the retarded fuckwits out there think twice before posting any retarded crap on the forums. Well, or maybe not since they are fuckwits but at least it'll help get rid of them .
Thank you for this modern version of euthanasia, EA! I can see the next EA ads already... "EA. Weeding out the mentally weak since 2008". Awesome. I support this mucho.

Seriously CD Projekt, you came out of nowhere...

Get a clue. They didn't come "out of nowhere" (but maybe you did... Bumfuck, OH, resident by chance? ).
Uh, anyway, CD Projekt has been around since the early 90s and is the no. 1 video game publisher throughout all of Eastern Europe. They self-funded The Witcher out of their own pockets and didn't have any trouble doing so due to their publishing activities. They are a big player in this business and already were before The Witcher was even conceived.
OK, sure, this is their premier title as a developer but saying they "came out of nowhere" would be like saying Atari "came out of nowhere" if Atari would all of a sudden begin to develop games instead of just publishing and distributing them.

The game shouldn't need any troubleshooting at all!

Hmmm... pipedreams must be a nice thing.

These 1st day patches is such bullshit.

Yup. I mean WTF are they thinking?!? They should really wait at least a YEAR before addressing any issues that come up after the game has gone gold.

I've been PC gaming for 15 years.

Wow! Really?

I do remember a time when I bought a game and installed it, it actually worked!

I do remember a time when people actually used their brains before posting retarded shit. I don't think I seriously need to tell you about the reasons why some(!) games were less buggy in the old days do I? If you do a little bit of thinking along the lines of how the quantity of code might affect the quality of code and how the quantity of code might have changed over the course of the years (a possible clue here might be the complexity of modern games compared to the simplicity of old sk00L games) then you might just be able to figure it out on your own. I don't really give it much hope to be honest since anyone with a couple brain cells would've realized this BEFORE posting that retarded shit.
