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.

News Comments > Crysis 2 Steam Crisis, Origin Exclusivity Planned?
29. Re: Crysis 2 Steam Crisis, Origin Exclusivity Planned? Jun 15, 2011, 02:37 Drayth
 
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.

News Comments > The Witcher 2 Patched, DRM Removed

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.

News Comments > The Witcher 2 Patch Next Week
33. Re: The Witcher 2 Patch Next Week May 20, 2011, 01:01 Drayth
 
I used to play a lot of flight sims in the old old days (I was there for F-15 Strike Eagle), but when it comes to an FPS I guess I'm thinking more in terms of what I want my hands to do.. I'm holding a gun, and I want to point it as fast as possible at the enemy (kinda also goes along with that that's where the mouse rests.. in my hand).

In a game like Arma though, I def want it to switch to inverted for piloting.. though I'm working on a beefier rig for Arma 2 and 3.. joystick for sure.

Witcher 2's great! /ontopic

Darks always gets testy in Arma threads. The game loves to hide his car keys.

And Darks, if you shoot at the AI, even if you miss it seriously fucks up their aim. That's one of the Arma II strategies actually - fire at an enemy if you think you're pinned and they'll have a hard time hitting you so you can flee to better cover, or W/E.

Picked this up on the $5 sale myself, and I'll be getting the new one day 1 if possible. VERY well done game.. on top of everything else people described it's a very immersive game too. The mood, the music and the voice acting all gel together perfectly.

It's also (along with Metro 2033) one of the best game to try with 3D vision, as it's 3D Vision certified. You only need to turn off motion blur. Walking through mist and seeing it come out of the screen into your face is another really immersive element.*

*Applicable to people who can tolerate 3D gaming.

What was that news article late last year that said Valve would have like 3(?) major announcements in the next year? Don't tell me Steam on PS3 and you can make youtube videos with Steam, or whatever they have going were 2 of those announcements?!
