So I guess the plan is to use Frostbite for all the games.. so I guess no 1313 then? :/

I just hope their next major project isn't the shitty MMO they're trying to make.

Give us Elswyr or Valenwood already!

Valenwood would continue in their alphabetical order release trend ;p

Or the domain was registered for a different reason. It was only an assumption by the fans that it was meant to be the next DLC.

Maybe it's something to do with the more recent Arena registration?

Nicely worded post by Bethesda, and yes.. now the mods can finally begin to "settle".

News Comments > Dark Souls PC "Half-Assed" - PC Prioritized for Sequel

Good god, Darks.

You're also the guy who thinks the ArmA series is complete crap. Funny one of the most PC centric games out there gets ragged on by you.

I think with you it boils down to, "Game complicated. Can't make work. Dumb game.".

Ironically you sound more like the target audience for console gamers.

'Nuff of this no where debate for me.

Iíll keep a tab on those who claimed the game is good. What really kills me too is many of you here claimed how bad ACM was. But in comparison ACM is a shining jewel compared to DS. It makes me wonder sometimes about some of you and jumping on the hate bandwagon when it came to that game.

Lets be clear: Most people consider Dark Souls *the game* as freaking awesome (and it is), which makes the bad port worth it for some of us.

ACM may play nice on the PC, but most people consider *the game* to be sub-par.

A controller is just another input device like a keyboard and mouse.

A console is a pre-configured box with very limited and expensive upgrade options that isn't a Mac.

The first mega-patch substantially improved the textures and animation in the game. I'm not saying it made it into a great game, but those of you holding out will have a noticeably better looking game than what was out on launch day.

That design is actually for back-face culling. It's meant to block your view from a distance into the building so the game engine doesn't have to render it. Having to render the internal architecture and the external area all at once would kill most cards... except THE TITAN!! (semi-jk)

WoW even does it for their inns with an elbow entrance. That way you can have a F-Ton of toons inside and outside (aka: Goldshire (on Moonglade)).

I think there actually was a new race added in a semi-recent patch.. the Cathar.

I don't see new classes being added, on top of the normal work it takes to add to a standard MMO they'd have do all the voice acting for 5 new companions (x2). That probably doesn't fit in their budget too well. I'm surprised enough there's a new expansion...

News Comments > Giant Aliens: Colonial Marines Patch
12. Re: Giant Aliens: Colonial Marines Patch Mar 19, 2013, 01:18 Drayth
 
Let me put it this way: If you bought the game and never finished it, or uninstalled in disgust.. the patch actually makes some rather decent improvements to the game.

There is definitely an improvement to the AI, animations on the aliens *are* smoother, and the graphics are more detailed and sharp. It's not just textures.. from my brief play I noticed the grenade toss scene at the dropship now has some extra effects added. Looks better.

For those who don't already own it, Id say it's now worth picking up, but only on a good sale price.

edit-They introduced a non-toggling film grain (Makes it look grainy like they Aliens movie, but the ijits should have made it optional) Mod to turn off the film grain, and a good ini tweak on the first page for the stupid contrast setting they switched to...

Looks like I'm going to be playing every series I grew up with till the end... (not necessarily complaining)

edit - After reading the below comments and looking more into the game, I'm going to change this to Looks like all the series I grew up with will be around...

on the fence too

I live close to work so I ran home, purchased and started download real quick. Can't WAIT to get home now. Been an avid fan of this series the whole way.

Maybe Darks will like ArmA this time around.

For newer ArmA users - Don't forget to keep an eye on the Bohemia forums. The ArmA series is a bit like Elder Scrolls in the terms of there being an avid mod community. User made missions can generally blow away stock game ones.

Watched the Giantbomb quicklook and while the game didn't look amazing I thought it looked acceptable. Maybe a point less than homefront. Homefront had a lot of the same issues I'm seeing in this game but that was a while ago so maybe this one is being judged more harshly.

Looking at Metacritic Homefront got a 70 and this game seems to be getting a 45-50. Seems like a 50-60 might be more fair but meh, can't say I really care one way or the other.

I thought I saw a comment on destructoid that the press had been shown a "demo" that shows gameplay that isn't in the game? Wasn't clear if he was saying they created a demo specifically to fool the press and then sold a totally different game? Or if it's just content that isn't in the full game?

This is not the first company to put up a tech demo and not have any of that in a game. Itís done all of the time. When will people stop over reactive when something is not in a game that you saw in a demo. Movies do the same thing all the time too. How many times have you watched a preview and never seen that scene in a movie? Lots!!

GB was just showing off the game and what it can do, this is NOT something that new or that they are trying to deceive the public about. Read the fine print, there are clauses in there about how this is review material and is subject to change.

I remember an early gameplay video for Halo 2 that was a huge, intricate sequence that never happens anywhere in the game.

edit- This..

Same, wtf_man.

On another note, I think someone should make a zombie survival game for Skyrim just for the hell of it.

Call it Animated Rotting Monsters Attack!

According to my calculations, everyone in the world now owns Skyrim and ARMA II and are now buying their second set of copies...
