News Comments > Dragon Age II Mark of the Assassin DLC Next Month

DAO for example sill had those 20 second loads where DA2 got it down to 3 seconds. How much the putrid bioware engine needs to load, that is a big deal to us. That's part of the fluid statement.

The way you are talking, it seems that Load Times makes or breaks a game irrespective of the game play... and if it was far enough away from DAO or even BG then WHY THE HELL WAS IT CALLED DRAGON AGE 2 and not some other IP or even a Dragon Age : Dark Emo JRPG Calling and not a follow up to Bioware's recent successful REAL RPG they have done for years???

And while I will agree that Baldur's Gate (1 and 2 and all the expansions) are top of the line when compared to Dragon Age Origins, it still felt like Bioware was taking a right step back to BG style game play with DAO... Now they took it the way for the mass audience with Dragon Age 2 - Ergo console kiddies who have only 3 seconds attention span...

Sorry you cant convince me otherwise. Dragon Age 2 was terrible, and I am glad The Witcher 2 was so far in the opposite direction that I had all but forgotten about Dragon Age 2 until this story was posted..

What sucks is one mans garbage is another man's potpourri. There was imo a lot of things fixed with Da2 vs other bioware offerings, short load times being one and with their engine that is important. It also was a very fun action RPG. But the panning has been universal in terms of internet feedback, I'm afraid they'll go back to boring DAO. What is odd the 3 people I play who played DA2, they all liked it a lot to. So we do scratch our heads, but we know we are wrong, because the internet told us so. No one's perfect.

Everyone who loved Baldurs Gate, Pretty much loved Dragon Age Origins. It was as near Bioware has been to Baldurs Gate 1 (And 2) for years. In fact even Bioware stated it was the "spiritual successor" and in my eyes they did that..

Then Dragon Age 2 came out... and it was everything Dragon Age Origins and Baldurs Gate was not... It was a horrible step backwards with re-spawning Darkspawn, JRPG style battles, repetitive map design, limited choice of characters, and a story that was shit to boot.. Theres a reason Bioware's lead storywriter left due to Dragon Age 2, and to me it fucking shows...

So you can scratch your heads, but you are in a minority in this one by a country mile.

It amazes me that only now we are getting stuff like this. Geoff Crammonds F1 did this all on one computer (not at the same time obviously) really well back in the day. I remember six of us playing on separate teams going thru an entire F1 Season to try and win.. And that was what? 1992???

You'd have thought this would have happened much MUCH sooner ..

Pleased as punch.. Steve Jobs steps down as CEO of Apple.. Although he stays on as chairman... Wont be long and he wont be there at all... <Does snoopy happy dance>.

That egotistical maniac has screwed so many people over and now that he's dying he's expecting sympathy.. Well guess what Steve? You dont go thru life, earning all that money, not giving a dime to the needy (unlike other super rich egotistical CEO's) and screw over your so called friends and expect a "woe is me"

Maybe if you gave even a dime of your money to charity, like ooh I dunno say CANCER RESEARCH or something, I'd feel a little more sorry for you..

But as it stands... right now all I gotta say is.. Fuck you Steve, good riddance...

Bioware were succesful before but do you think they'd have as huge products and as much clout if EA hadn't backed them? They'd probably be like Silicone Knights (well with less suck.)

Same could also be said of the following companies (who were like Bioware, doing quite well before EA "Bought/Owned" them, and subsequently liquidated them.

Bullfrog productions.
Origin Systems.
Looking Glass Studios.
Maxis.
Westwood Studios....

Need I say any more????

Seeing those "comments taken out of context" were originally on a video that he made in answer to a viewers question, I really cant see how they were taken out of context!!!

It was REPORTED on, so y'know people were aware of the bilge that comes out of his mouth.. It wasn't EVER taken out of context..

Both he and Bobby COCKtick should be strapped to an Atlas rocket and shot into space for the good of humanity.

How about THQ buys the Freespace IP from Interplay, and gets Volition, Inc, to make another Freespace game I am pretty sure that will sell exceedingly well.. I never really liked any of the Red Factions and every time I see a Volition, Inc game it just reminds me of the greatness they pulled with Freespace...

Oh well.. Never happen in a million years I guess.

News Comments > OnLive and Bandwidth Caps
9. Re: OnLive and Bandwidth Caps Jul 27, 2011, 23:13 CythrawL
 
My advice is download some good firmware to your Routers and see what your traffic is.. Mine has been on since Nov last year (DD-WRT) and not once since then have I got anywhere near 250gb in a single month. And I have no TV, I stream all my movies and entertainment (Netflix, Amazon, Hulu etc thru Roku) at least every day (More so on the weekends when my Son is at home) I also download a TON of shit, ISO images etc etc etc.. Most in a single month is 132gb (which was in May when the Witcher 2 was released - got it via steam and not forgetting a 9gb patch within a week after that) as well as all my usual shit.. 250GB is very generous, and really to rack that down EVERY month you must either be hosting a server (which I might add is
AGAINST any TOS for any public ISP AFAIK) or pirating a LOT of movies.

Now if only they were that generous with Wireless devices that are 4G capable...

The game really does have a 1990's game design...where the goals are nothing more than go from point A to point B so you can achieve some unrelated goal and see what the next section has in store, but we all knew that going into the game.

Sorry I have to really disagree with the 90's game design. The levels suffer the same syndrome as all modern shooters these days... Namely this: http://www.geardiary.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/fps-design.gif

What happened to the good ol' days of installing the 3.5" diskette into the drive, running the 'deicing' .exe/installing the game, DL and installing the latest patch from a BBS, and running the game whenever and however the F&$K you wanted?

Damn, I am getting old. I may have to find another new hobby and start building train sets in my garage............


Actually I can up one on you there.. What happened to the good old days of putting a Disk in the drive and it booting the game automatically (Amiga) or typing LOAD "filename",8,1 and no configuration required at all (C64).. it just frakking RAN!! At some point it all went to shit after that...

Things must be good for EA to turn away selling on a platform that has potentially 30 million customers.. 3 million of which are online at any given time.

The illegality of cannabis is outrageous, an impediment to full utilization of a drug which helps produce the serenity and insight, sensitivity and fellowship so desperately needed in this increasingly mad and dangerous world.

As for the comments about Steam...if any of you were around at the time...then you would remember the services which rose and fell in an attempt to provide multiplayer connectivity. Some of the major services were Kali, Gamespy, mPlayer, Total Entertainment Network (TEN), HEAT, and World Opponent Network (WON). <Snip> But, of those services there is only one of them that I am now sure will always be there for us...Steam...made by gamers for gamers.

Gamespy was also originally made by gamers for gamers. Again your 30 years is failing you. Gamespy started out as QSpy for Quake and then became Quakespy and was bundled with Quakeworld. Then it was bought out after Hexen 2 when it was renamed Gamespy.. Since then its been shit..

I fucking LOVE SoF. I still replay it from time to time, and I seriously wish we'd get a (real) new SoF with a modern engine.

Creston

This goes true for a lot of the older games.. Some need re-mastering as it were.

Quake 1 looks like its going to be (although that Doom 3 mod Shamblers Castle is amazing). But others like Tie Fighter, Hexen, SOF 1&2, POD, and many others would really benefit from a remaster (Note: not Reboot). Some of those older classic games are hard to get running on a modern system these days, and when you do you wish they would look better even though the gameplay is still totally solid.
