Just a clarification about Impulse. If you didn't receive your game activation, just submit a ticket. My order was resolved in about an hour. It took about an hour for my game/order to show up. This seems to be somewhat common as a lot of people are upset. I still recommend Steam over Impulse. But Impulse is A LOT faster for downloading.

I would advise caution when buying any games from Stardock/Impulse. There has been a SERIOUS problem with people not getting the games they purchased (quickly, like Steam).

Just purchased Metro 33 on Steam. $49.99
I have 15mb internet speed. No problems with my rig or connection. It's been over and hour and it's still downloading. I'm at 50%.

I COULD have drove to the store and bought a shiny new copy with a nice crisp manual, stopped at BK, stopped at the smoke shop for some cigs, got home, ate, installed the game, and be playing by now.

STEAM is a f^@king joke in terms of speed. Surely a resolution is on the horizon for it's million+ userbase?

*note
junk food and smokes not recommended. finding a new download service is.

Yeah ok..

How about some FASTER servers, Valve?! Spend some of those millions you are making. Getting capped bandwidth 400kb-800kb is pathetic. You know damn well you are capping the bandwidth.

I remember when Steam used to be fast for downloads. It's bad enough you are charging people the same price as retail for new games. Give people faster servers or they will leave you in droves.

News Comments > Lord of Ultima Open Beta
6. Re: Lord of Ultima Open Beta Mar 20, 2010, 16:07 FLY
 
It's an OK "strategy game". The mechanics are neat, plenty of things to do and some pretty good detail. What i don't get is the whole Alliance thing and "raids". It takes days to do a raid and you don't even see the actual troops,horses,catapults in action. You only get reports. And no music or ambient sounds. I know, i know... it's a "browser game". Ehhhh ...

The other problem is the graphics engine. Too slow, laggy, almost 8-bit type graphics. They should have used the Silverlight engine imo. Would be feasible, i would think?

Here's an example of the Silverlight engine. Notice how smooth it is. Some of you may have heard of "Goon City" by Ryan Allen.

Looks damn good. Imagine if some people from this studio teamed up with teams from Modern Warfare 2 and Battlefield Bad Company 2 and created a mmorpg. It would be astoundingly frickin' awesome.

"This new mode forces players to reconsider everything they thought they knew about portals. Success will require them to not just act cooperatively, but to think cooperatively."

Brilliant. Now wait until you hear about HL3...

Incredibly fun if you have the rig to run it. I'm running it at full max everything. Seems pretty good. BUT...everyone including Avalanche failed to state that... it's a timed demo.



I'll be buying this one for sure. Great stuff.

Was in one of the "Beta" for this one. Can honestly say it needs a lot of work. Especially in the art/character art, animation and play control. Just looks amateur atm. The idea is cool but...ehh.

Very upset with the demo. Took forever to find a match which is understandable, but still wthell is with the "searching" junk?. Played the Marine and laughed at how bad it played. Can't jump on tables,objects? wtf is that? Where's the weapons?
All i heard was constant "beeep beep beeep" from the motion sensor then watch as an alien killed me again. Flashlight needs upgrade to LED...you can't see shit.
Multiplayer won't last if it's anything like this pos. Looks like the effort went to the animation kills for the Alien. Predator looks cool but haven't played it yet. Where's all the weapons? Level design looks amateur. Not enough details. Where's the physics? there's a forklift can't we shoot out the tires or gas tank?

Not as excited about this as i was.

Is this Fake Factory's cinematic mod?

No.
Fake Factory is a legend. He's advanced far beyond mere lighting/HDR.
Here's an example of Fake's work:

Though this mod does look cool. Great to see anything new related to the Half Life series. Millions of fans around the world are waiting on Valve (patiently of course)to make an announcement on the next Half Life. In the mean time, the great modders out there create things to keep the Half Life universe alive. Bless them for that.

These Steam sales are pissin' me off. I bought a few games on sale, then over the course of a few days the games were on sale even cheaper in the 24hr sale. WTF! Almost seems criminal.

How about some prior notice, VALVE! You are ticking people off bigtime.

"the return of Sushi-X"

Ahahah awesome news! Been a fan of EGM since the early days. It's a great gaming mag. Kinda slacked a bit over the past years mainly due to the internet. EGM still has most of it's roots with the names mentioned above. I remember when EGM's holiday issues were well over 200 pages. Wow, how times have changed.
When the power goes out, internet pricing goes up, modem's fail, books and magazines will be all that's left. Bring back the mags!

Can we craft updates for L4D? I love TF2, but Valve need to start chuckin' us L4Dheads a fricken bone.

If ANY game that it would be useful, the LFD series is it. Great idea. Would be neat to be able to build things like sentry guns,traps,different forms of defense walls/structures, and even full on bunkers.

News Comments > Swift Leaves Valve, Joins Airtight Games
3. Re: Swift Leaves Valve, Joins Airtight Games Dec 7, 2009, 17:15 FLY
 
Ehh who knows? People come and go in the gaming business. They're contractors for the most part. Or MAYBE it has something to do with profit sharing. Valve has made a ton of money the past few years. With no news of an expansion in their studio department, one has to wonder what the hell is going on.

Valve's gotta get going on the new games or i sense the high road for others as well. This 1-2 games a year biz has gotta change. Where's Half Life: Episode 3? Where's Portal 2? Where's the fix for the servers? How about a new revamped HL2DM game which combines L4D and HL2? We've been patient Valve common. Speaking of Episode 3, i hope it has 4 player coop.

Awesome news. Loved SH3. SH4 is good too long as you have a decent PC. You can get both on Steam.
The Silent Hunter series takes gold in the submarine genre. Wish they would port SH3 and SH4 to the 360 and PS3. Could imagine what the PS3 engine could do with the physics; the mind boggles. Cannot wait! Hope there's destructable environments, better multiplayer and ability to pick up maidens and beer prior to setting off on career mode.
