"Savings of 100 millions" ie money Valve were never going to spend anyway, making that figure as reliable as "$x lost due to piracy".

At least they're offering a pathway for translations to be created.

I thought FC2 could have been a great game, but was hamstrung by bad design decisions. I have absolutely no desire to play FC2 ever again but FC3 looks like it might be somewhat good. Not day-1 good, but maybe day-30

A first person view is great for many things, but close combat is not one of them.

Looking forward to this one, what seatribe did with no budget was incredible, what they'll do with paradox backing should be really really good.

I can't actually tell whether the battles are turn based or whether they're like the Dark Chronicle battles. I think there's an element of both, there certainly seems to be free movement in battles because the player clearly dodges a boss (the robot thing) charging at him in one clip. But there's also a menu on the screen (the thought bubbles), although since I can't read japanese I'm only guessing that it's a menu and not some kind of status display.

Nobody likes overthinking, least of all overthinking that misses the mark entirely.

I use a cheap chinese wireless keyboard-with-trackpad for my media centre, it's more convenient than wires, and you can hand it around at parties.

For my desktop, an el cheapo wired keyboard and a razer diamondback 3g wired mouse, which is on it's way out, like the last razer mouse I bought. Bad build quality from razer in my experience, but maybe that's just because it's their budget mouse.

I wonder if the FBI would investigate if my nudes were leaked onto the internet.

He looks way too aged as well.
To be fair, he aged a fair bit from 1 to 2 so that makes a bit of sense. I wonder if he'll risk breaking his hip every time he dives to the floor in MP4 though.
A lá MGS4!

Why was my comment removed? I was mocking the people calling this political correctness.

Max Payne has always been on consoles anyway. So long as it avoids much of modern gimmickry it should be well received here.

I'm warming up to minecraft again. This branch of development provides a reason for me to play. An objective! Or the beginnings of a system that provides more meaningful objectives than "build some pretty but useless crap"

I look at piracy as free advertising of the most interactive kind. I have bought many games that I initially pirated, and that I may never have bought otherwise.

That said, I haven't pirated any games in a while, because I can generally tell what I'll like from all the info floating around, and if there's one I missed, I'll hear about it eventually.. and, more eventually, all games become very cheap, AND I have so many games waiting to be played now that I'm good for a few weeks at least.

The problem with that is you have played hundreds of games that you never paid for....
And consequently has a much wider base of experience on which to judge new games, albeit tempered by the "percieved value" thing where the previous games were free.

I think what prez said (about the witch-hunt reaction to harmless jokes now being worse than the actual discrimination) sums my views up quite nicely.

Surely you could fudge a decent smooth loading bar speed by coding an ingame loading-time benchmark, and calibrating the movement of the loading bars to that score?

Although sometimes "loading bar freezes at 37%" can be a good diagnostic of what bug is occuring, in some games at least.
