Nothing about the minimap? Sigh, looks like that huge intrusive ugly thing is here for the long haul.

Rockstar burst onto the gaming scene with their own title, Max Payne, which relied heavily on bullettime mechanics. The game was so good, it turned 'Max Payne' into a household name
Uh, huh.

Edit: This just gets better and better.
Max is a sad, lonely man who carries a blatant world-weariness, which makes him a rather convincing central character (way more convincing than in earlier games, that's for sure).

I don't get it. Neither of those comments really seem that far fetched.

No, you don't understand. You're asking him to act rationally, but he may not be able to do that, as the minimap has already driven him literally insane.

It DOES. If it was any larger it would take up 1/4 of the screen, drives me batshit crazy. There are countless posts on the official forums about it, I'm not the only nutcase out there. It needs to have a resize option, plain and simple. You know, like EVERY other game out there. Well, except for console games. Ugh, now even PC/Mac exclusives have consolitis, great!

21. Did they announce any minimap changes yet? May 25, 2012, 02:07 JohnBirshire
 
I'm afraid to read the patch notes because they said it contained spoilers, but I was curious as to whether they added any changes to the minimap. It is so large it drives me literally insane, was actually thinking about quiting and only coming back if they resized it or gave us the ability to do this ourselves.

I wish D3 would give us the ability to control the size of the minimap, it is atrociously large and completely unnessessary. I can't stop staring at it while I play, drives me insane.

All of these social media sites, no matter how popular, are fads. Facebook will inevitably be the next Myspace. Waste of investment money.

83. I wish someone would hack the minimap... May 21, 2012, 16:17 JohnBirshire
 
The minimap is so atrociously large, I almost quit playing. Can't believe it got through beta at it's current size. It is atrociously large, and with no option to change it's size it is currently 4 times bigger than any other game.

17. Interface editor? May 15, 2012, 22:28 JohnBirshire
 
Is there anyway to change the size of the interface? I swear it takes up half the screen. It's driving my OCD nuts, given the fact that I scaled the interface down to about 20% in every other game I play. There is no reason why buttons you can see perfectly fine at a fraction of their size have to be so big. And that minimap, ugh!

They are idiots, refuse to merge servers to the point people are rerolling and/or quiting for lack of anything else to do. Then simultaneously spend all their time and effort trying to attract new players while kicking their current PAYING subscribers in the teeth. You can keep Bioware, I'm done with them.

I agree, it makes no sense whatsoever. If you can resurrect yourself when you die...why couldn't everyone else in the game world?

Does anybody play Bioshock 2 multiplayer for the PC? Or are all the servers dead?

35. Their refusal so far to merge servers is killing them... May 8, 2012, 02:30 JohnBirshire
 
At level 50 it is almost impossible to find raid groups, and when you PvP queue you are seeing the same people in almost every Warzone. It's almost as if they won't server merge because they are afraid about what non-subscribers are going to say about the game. I think this game is on a short leash, they need to wise up quickly or they'll just be another small niche MMO at best.

Diablo III...meh.

Torchlight2 FTW.

All I noticed is that they rushed to release it before Diablo 3...maybe they weren't as confident in their game as you are.

35. The Koreans will kill the market... May 2, 2012, 00:29 JohnBirshire
 
I remember when UO gold sold for $15 per mill, the Koreans started farming, and bam it was 50 cents. The same will happen to Diablo 3, they will be playing 24 hours a day in factories and everyone else will be lucky to get tablescraps for hard earned items.

Jaguar's reviews are usually spot on, and I agree with him.

The combat is important. If I just wanted a good story, I'd read a book. If I only needed visuals, I'd watch TV or a movie. The entire package has to be adequate, you can't have one important aspect of your game simply fail.

Has to have something to do with his time, after they neutered the franchise.

21. Re: Space Quest Creators Plan New Adventure Apr 16, 2012, 04:08 JohnBirshire
 
I have fond memories of a lot of the adventure games I played when I was younger, and went back and played a few for the sake of nostalgia...just to be reminded how absurd and frustrating many of them actually are. Constantly getting stuck because the way to continue makes no sense whatsoever. "Ohhh!! I was supposed to chew bubblegum while blowing up a balloon before spraying water on it to create an extra dimensional portal to teleport me over this wall, okay that makes sense!" Spent half the playing time on my Monkey Island, Leisure Suit Larry, and Space Quest games I replayed simply alt-tabbing back and forward to check the walkthrough.
