Because i don't buy a new windows version that doesn't improve anything (of value) apart from making all my specialized software with custom drivers run haywire I run 64bit vista.. enough for my needs for now.

I would argue 7 is an improvement over vista, but it certainly isn't necessary. Especially if you're running some special software that is dated and/or doesn't have w7 support.
Hence the recommendation, not the requirement.

Why recommend something that has no effect on the game whatsoever? There is no performance difference between 64bit Vista and W7

This has everything to do with memory. while you CAN get 32-bit OS's to handle more ram, it requires work, so with a recommended memory of 4GB I don't think its odd to also recommend a 64-bit OS. If I recall when you buy windows 7 you get both the 32 and 64 bit versions, so the real question is why aren't you running 64-bit windows 7.

Thanks for that link, Nomaar. I've been thinking I should start up TES IV again and check out new mods. That one looks like it's worth a try.

I've been considering this as well, but I dont know what the great mods are and Im too lazy to puit any effort into finding out

This looks both Radical and bodacious.

Yeah, Yerli fits perfectly to any big publisher. Always willing to say anything to support the corporations interests, even if it's utter bullshit and Yerli has to contradict himself everytime. But that's ok. It's his life, his company, his descisions. I wish him well in the future. No, really

You try making games like Crytek does on an indie budget. You want high production value and bleeding-edge technical prowess? It doesn't come cheap - be prepared to kiss somebody's ass to pull it off.

That being said, glad Crytek walked away from that mess. Creston's dead right, though - if Crytek became an MS studio, they'd be a console exclusive developer, and would likely have most of their staff wiped out and replaced by MGS people to avoid internal structural conflicts with other Microsoft teams (but making sure to keep Yerli as a figurehead, like what was done with Molyneux at Lionhead).

Not that it made much difference. Crysis 2 was a step back from the first Crysis in most aspects. It may as well have been a console exclusive.

PC version of Crysis 2 finally got finished last week

Just comes down to if you prefer "more realistic" gameplay (BF3) or more arcade-y gameplay with Michael bay-style production (mw3.) Beyond graphics and vehicles that's pretty much the deciding factor when it comes to the single player. In regards to MP gameplay is a factor, especially when taking vehicles into account, but the games also have different player counts and map styles/sizes. another thing to consider is in multiplayer, 'lone wolf' style play is whats the norm when it comes to the mw series. In the BF series things seem to be a bit more team focused.

Fair call mate, and being team/realism vs arcade/lone wolf, BF3 just leans so much more to multiplayer. Not that they won't have an engrossing single player campaign, mind you, but mw3's looks like it's the bees knees thus far. Of course, I anticipate seeing a lot more footage from both games before either one of them is released.

I spent so much more time with Black Ops than I did with Bad Company 2, these days single player (and coop) are really what's doing it for me. If they'd re-add the ability to create your own server and fill it with bots, ala Battlefield of old, I'd be all over that, but I don't think they'll let us do that again.

Mw3 single player is going to be more of the same, I don't see how it will be better than BF3, which clearly appears to be trying something a little more grand scale.

First you were like "I've only seen this tank video" then you're all "Nah man, I've seen all the videos ever".

It's all good mate. I mean, if you can't get me on the big stuff, naturally pick on the small shit instead. I like your style, no shit, consistency is undervalued in this day and age.

I didn't mention having seen the faultline trailer because it came out before e3, and I figured we were just talking e3 footage. My bad. I'm happy to clarify for the kids in these parts. I've seen the frostbite 2 trailer also, but it's very short, and since much of it was footage taken from either the tank or faultline videos anyway, I figured it wasn't really worth mentioning. Happy Sepharo? Or you wanna pick nits some more?

I'm happy to continue to discuss BF3 vs MW3, and I'm open to reasonable comments and willing to consider both sides of the coin, but please, can we make it adults only from here onwards?

Translation: We're a little worried that BF3 may steal all of our PC multiplayer customers, so let me make a lot of vague, empty statements that make it appear as if I really give a shit about you.

Creston

That's how I read it, too.
It's almost too little too late already, BF3 is giving players what they want without having to beg for it, or leaving them in the dark.
there is also no concerns about monthly fees.

Say what you want about Call of Duty, I just about jizzed watching that gameplay demonstration of MW3 at the start of Microsoft's press conference. The shit was absolutely hitting the fan, and it all looked fabulous.

After seeing BF3 MW3 could not look more underwhelming.

Will they be adding what is now known as Theater mode, or demo recording in the game? I was pleasantly surprised to see it in Black Ops and enjoyed it quite a bit. It was probably the first time demo recording was implemented in a non Valve/Source game in many years. Of course, they're making it a paid feature in COD Elite which means I won't be using it again but it is a nifty thing. So, will Battlefield have it as well?

Isn't this what fraps is for?

It's a different approach, but essentially yes.
I shared the same thought though, a lot of people just go this route anyway because they are going to want the video for one reason or another.

3rd part fix for aspect ratio. It worked for 1.1 but I dunno if things will change with 1.2 as I haven't gotten a chance to mess with it yet.

edit - It doesn't so I guess we'll need to wait for the program to be updated or CDP to support it. Sorry for the false lead.

I guess republic commando was kinda cool for it's time and battlefront was decent.

As I understand it, since it is a prequel they wanted to have something of a sepia tinted feel to color themes, like an old picture or manuscript.

I'm apparently old school; I just CAN'T play an FPS view game without mouse inversion. I guess it's whatever you get used to. The standard a long time ago was what is now inverted, so newer gamers prefer the non-"flight control" style.

As far as I can recall, inverted was never 'standard' beyond Flight-control style games. Granted, some games would ship with inversion, but not enough for it to be considered standard.

I hope this is the patch that adds true 16:10 support.

Also the ability to bind a key to save and load. It really seams like CDprojekt wanted to remove 'quicksaves' from W2 with how things are laid out.

The game has the odd scent of a console ported game because of the fact you have to do all key bindings and graphical settings OUTSIDE the game as well as menu only access to saving and loading. Which by the way is ANNOYING AS GOD DAMNED HELL when trying to test settings because of how long the game takes to load even on 2 10k RPM Raptors in RAID0.

Also though it says you can skip cutscenes it doesn't actually work for me.
I find I have to left click the mouse once or twice to get the "skip" icon to show up int he top left corner. Then right click to skip.

F5 is the quicksave button, I just dont think its bindable...
Either by design or coincidence, this button seems to be the quicksave button in most games. I just kind of instinctually went for it and it worked, happy hunting.

ed: If there is a quickload button I haven't found it

In today’s politically correct society most heterosexuals are afraid to offer their honest opinion without being branded a homophobe.
The truth is, most straight men, even those who have gay friends or family, are physically sickened by the thought of gay sex. We see it as a perversion similar to bestiality or S&M. Personally, I have no problem with it unless it is in my face, whether that be on TV, videogames, or in those raunchy gay pride parades (many of whom would be arrested if they were straight). BTW, I used to live near San Francisco, and you’d be surprised how many closet conservatives there are there.


Based off your assumption, we can just write off any heterosexuals opinion in favor of gay rights since the you've decided the only reason they say as much is fear and intimidation. It must be so comforting to know that the majority secretly agrees with you. Any protesting to the contrary must be the gays intimidating them! It couldn't be because they think civil rights issues should be addressed, absolutely not!

The internet proves a great testing ground. If you were correct then most heterosexuals on this forum and on the internet, for that matter, would be agreeing with you, as it's essentially anonymous and they would feel no intimidation from speaking their true opinion, as they cannot be identified beyond the forum (as a general rule.) But the majority here clearly disagrees with you, despite the majority of users living in anonymity.

I'm not saying people don't exist who say the opposite of how they feel about something just because they fear they will be socially ostracized, but to count them among the majority I would consider a mistake. I think the internet helps prove this with its anonymity.
