News Comments > Duke Nukem Forever Demo Today
12. Re: Duke Nukem Forever Demo Today Jun 21, 2011, 11:19 Drayth
 
I'm pretty sure it starts from the beginning of the game (I'm not getting the full copy till there's a massive steam sale on it).. then jumps to some part futher into the game.

And no, no multiplayer.

You too can see how bad the game is!!!

Go get em, Ant!


Yay! Bah to Steam again! Finally we can see how crappy it is! I hope I can play it during my long Independence Day 2011 weekend.

It took me less than an hour to play through the demo, Ant. It's very short.

Plus, most of those missions are soloable. So I think I'll probably get it at some point in the future (six months after release or so) when the early bugs have been fixed, and just play through all the story content.

I'm curious as to how much story content there actually is. Bioware claims that they have a unique campaign for each class but how long are those campaigns and how well-crafted are the missions? If it turns out that each campaign is only 10 hours and comprised of generic MMO grind quests, I'll pass. If it turns out that TOR has awesome 20-hour campaigns for each class, I'll probably give the game a try for a month or two once the initial game price goes down.

Early video stated that there's more content in a given class'es campaign than any single BioWare game.

If they're going to do this, they better bring Romero back, at least under contract.


And Trent.

News Comments > EA Didn't Pull Crysis 2 from Steam
12. Re: EA Didn't Pull Crysis 2 from Steam Jun 15, 2011, 17:01 Drayth
 
I highly suspect EA was fully aware they would be breaking this agreement with Steam (how could they not know the terms of their agreement with Steam?). It's possible they where well aware it would result in the game being pulled.

Oh well, bussiness is bussiness.

Something kinda funny just came to mind. EA is Valve's distributer, lol.

"If you review the contract you signed in 2001, Gabe.. and turn to page 3, section 5, paragraph 2; you'll note that it states, '..meanwhile, Steam will remain exclusive distributer for digital sales till Origin.'

...so I'm affraid Half-Life 3 will be an Origin exclusive.

.....muha. muhahaaha.... MUWAHAHAHAAHAHAAAHAHA!!! I mean, *ahem* it's right there in white and black."

Steam's earned it's success.

And I can't imagine it does in any way, but does the pulling of Crysis 2 affect existing owners at all? I bet they'll have to do some form of manual patching going forward..?

Maybe they'll turn this into an MMO...
[s4mf1ssur3, has invited you to Afghanistan 20. Would you like to join this raid? <yes> <no>]

Between XBOX Live and Steam, I'm not sure why anyone needs a paid service to track their online friends. I guess it'll offer other stuffs though.

The game ties directly with Aliens.

I read a few years ago how they even got in touch with Kodak so they could reproduce the look of the film grain and color saturation (or something like that) from Aliens as closely as possible.

Really hoping this turns out good.

News Comments > New NVIDIA Drivers

DrEvil wrote on Jun 1, 2011, 14:00:

The fact that an application could cause that behaviour shows it was a driver bug, not a Witcher 2 bug.

From NV's forums:
""A drop in performance with the game The Witcher 2 may be observed if the user has ever completed the NVIDIA 3D Vision Wizard, and persists even after disabling 3D Vision through the NVIDIA Control Panel. The apparent cause is that the game uses an incorrect API to check whether 3d stereo is activated with each frame. A workaround will be provided by NVIDIA through a future display driver update which will restore performance when 3D Vision is disabled. We are also working with The Witcher 2 game developers to resolve the root issue. Please check back for new driver release information."

*shrug*
(the part about restoring performance when stereo is disabled is this driver release)

News Comments > New NVIDIA Drivers
2. Re: New NVIDIA Drivers Jun 1, 2011, 12:27 Drayth
 
The performance issue was if you had ever run the Stereo 3D setup wizard, The Witcher 2 was pinging the wrong part of the driver to see if 3D was enabled which caused a massive slow down in performance. The solution was to disable the Stereo 3D service, or uninstall the Stereo Driver portion of the nvidia drivers.

There's still a bug that causes massive slow down in indoor portions of The Witcher 2 when running stereo.. that fix is coming later this month.

Get the GOG version. You get a full copy of the game, no DRM to begin with, and no need to fire up steam to play (And I buy everything digital via steam normally).

More of the profit goes to the developers too since GOG is their sister company.

"Take a look at The Old Republic and how it's handling things. Party members have the ability to select a dialog option to advise the leader, but it's the party leader who makes the choice on exactly what to say."

That's incorrect. Everyone in the party chooses a response, then the game randomly picks who's to run with. You get the light / dark side points dependant on your choice no matter what, but the response is picked from the pool of choices at random.

At least that's what the girl from Bioware told me in line at PAX.
