They talk a good game and you can make your toon look "hip," but this seems really mindless.

Just stand and shoot - eventually sum'tin sum'tin will blowded up gud. AWWW YAYYYYEAH!

Joking aside, I feel that I've seen this game numerous times, but hopefully this is the most current/evolved version of it. However, these types of games never hold my interest for long.
Why is it always the devolution of society? Is this what people want?

News Comments > Half-Life Pulse Detected
13. Re: Half-Life Pulse Detected Mar 27, 2010, 10:08 Ray Marden
 
I'm jut concerned by his vague wording - I don't look back at HL1 and think "I really loved the scare in that game."

I just hope they do something with this once-franchise, though. HL2 was a very good game, but I still have a lot of issues with it as a continuation or evolution from HL1 with regards to the story and world.

As for HL3 being episodes one through three, where to start? The delays? The inconsistency? Repetitive story? The fact that we still don't have the third one and nobody is publicly talking abot it? Lack of cohesion between releases?

If I were to explain Half-Life to a non-gamer, I could completely convey HL1, but HL2 would make some huge leaps I wouldn't necessarily have answers for (unless you cound "'cuz that's how it is now.") And for HL3.1 and 3.2, I'd really just be explaining how I was running all over the place just because.

I hope they either kill off Ep3 of just push some crap out of the door so they can work on a true sequel. And if they have zero passion for the franchise, I would actively encourage them to sell it off or hand it out to somebody that does.
But maybe they are? LFD2 can't possibly require the entire company.

News Comments > NVIDIA 400 Series Reviews
15. Re: NVIDIA 400 Series Reviews Mar 27, 2010, 09:51 Ray Marden
 
Well, the 470 sucks. You can pay less and get equal performance. Edit: And could have done so as far back as six months ago.

As for the 480, it's a speed bump, but only towards the highest end of the spectrum where it won't matter as much. Even then, it has a hefty price tag, significant power requirements, is very loud, and has serious heat concerns.

Toss in concerns about long term performance (yield issues combined with the heat,) the long development time (chipset might have long term benefits, but is very late for this generation,) and the smack talking from NvIdIa - this is a fairly underwhelming release. If ATI cuts prices or does a slight speed increase...

Nobody is wrong for getting one, it will do good in games, but it is hardly the economical choice nor does it have a great price to performance ratio.

I think the future looks better for NVIDIA - it has a new chipset, it can refine it, a lot of the features are forward looking, and it will play politics with CUDA - but this card is meaningless for a lot of users, especially so with the current crop of games.
I'm not fan of ATI and was hoping to replace my 5850, but not anymore.

Who cares? The terrible moust acceleration in this game is far worse than any outages that my have occurred.

Nothing like it being 2010 and realizing developers still do not have a clue that maybe, just maybe, games should actually be able to control their characters...
Yes, yes, let's make a DRM "control" reference to be cliche!

Failure.

I guess they're almost even with the market, but with the added benefits of more negative items, but NvIdIa dropped the ball in this generation.

Yes, ATI has some supply issues and needs to push a new architecture sooner than later. Yes, NVIDIA has some nice long-term promise.

But for now? The next year? Current generation games? The $270 I spent on my 5850 is a far, far better deal than the lackluster 470. I guess the 480 isn't quite as bad, but is it worth the price, heat, and power? Not in my book.

See you in the next round of cards, Nvidia...
ATI still annoys me, but nvidia is just gives us too little too late.
Shaking my head at all the lost time and smack talking; wondering where the "Wow" is,

I hope it's as good, if not better, than the original. I absolutely loved that game and it has forever tarnished games like GTA in my opinion.

It has not had the best development, but here is to hoping...
And let's hope it goes out with a bang.
Already having it pre-ordered at Amazon with the $10 game credit,

I'm telling you - remake the original Pong, but make it take two hours for the ball (square?) to cross the screen.

Under five minutes of coding and YEARS of gameplay! Knowing how long people will need can have to play this game, you could totally charge $1000.00 or more for it.

The first company to do this will become the richest company in the world! And then it can use that cash to buy the world!

Well, unless that is a totally stupid idea and completely misses the point...
At what point do these people just f*ck off? Is a CD worth $50?
Wondering if art, gameplay, or fun will ever have a place next to greed ,

Be sure to grab the 10.3s when you can.

It magically fixed my Metro 2033 v-sync issue and it's such a world of difference (graphically, not game wise ) to not have tearing on the screen.
Wow, the last chapter of this game is cheap.

F2 was a decent shooter, but a bit jumbled together and FAR removed from the quality of the original.

Pointless mech bits, significantly easier combat, an even wonkier story, lackluster boss fights, less impressive graphics (relative to time of release,) heavy handed with scripts, etc.

I loved F.E.A.R., I played it 3 or 4 times and beat it on the highest difficultly, but F2 did not feel like the same game and definitely wasn't remotely memorable.
There was nothing wrong with the game, but it had nothing special.
Having played it the one time and barely recalling it,

I have 20GB and, along with the lack of HDMI, this really annoys me.

I just bought a new 640GB drive from Amazon and had it shipped next day for $61 (mind you, I'm cheating with that claim because I am using Prime.)

Meanwhile, Micro$oft wants me to pay ~$0.52/GB? Or just buy an entirely new system? With this being my third Xbox 360 due to hardware issues? A corrupted Live user ID? My previous issues of replacing a first generation Xbox due to hardware issues?
At least my PS3 lets me save my downloaded content...
Umm....yeah...but no thanks,

News Comments > The Witcher 2 Trailer
32. Re: The Witcher 2 Trailer Mar 24, 2010, 13:11 Ray Marden
 
Well, the combat is fairly broken, but you aim to get a gear/combo setup that lets you bypass the many flaws. It occasionally has Gothic-like moments of perma-stun chaings by multiple NPCs.

There is less skill involved than just making sure you have the right combination - once you do, you just click whenever the combo needs it and it's basically insta-win.

Certain fights, especially early on, can really favor consumables as well. To this day, the first boss (yes, the stupid dog thingie) was the most difficult fight I've had in the game. I had tried various strategies and routinely had my ass handed to me. However, I then tried one potion I had not previously used and it becamse an instant win. Rolleyes

Towards the end, I had the best custom sword as well as some improved gear - other than worrying about an occasional clusterf*ck, it was just combat by numbers.
Then you just become a sword wielding god.
Recalling the elite plant thingie in the swamp as being extremely mis-placed,
Ray
