News Comments > EA CEO on the Hot Seat?
9. Re: EA CEO on the Hot Seat? Jan 13, 2010, 14:12 Umbragen
 
It figures - a new CEO tries to fix some of what is so very wrong with EA and the shareholders revolt. Obviously, EA should go back to the same draconian practices that made them the most hated publisher in the business, producing games I wouldn't even steal. Yeah, let's go back to that model, it will save me quite a bit of money.

News Comments > Age of Conan Character Deletions
19. Re: Age of Conan Character Deletions Jan 12, 2010, 00:18 Umbragen
 
Go ahead and delete them, they're likely taking up names that could be put to better use. It's not like they are deleting accomplished characters - EA/Origin did a purge of all inactive characters once - wiped out all my maxed tunes. Needless to say I've never been back since. If they hadn't done it, they would have gotten at least a few bucks, just for the sake of nostalgia.

News Comments > Cliffski: Devs Should Eat Their Own Dog Food
7. Re: Cliffski: Devs Should Eat Their Own Dog Food Jan 7, 2010, 03:07 Umbragen
 
I think 'Devs' should finish more than four games before they get to wear the title.

Edit: I wasn't clear. By finish four games I meant 'play to completion'. This is in reference to a post Cliffski made about the length of games and how he'd only finished four games in his entire life.

Do some people throw their old games away? I still have Dungeon Siege. In fact, I still have Ultima 6 - the original boxed version with the cloth map and 'Orb of the Moons'. It was one of the first games I ever bought.

Hey, if Comcast and the rest get their way, the US will move to quotas too. I'll be damned if I'll pay broadband rates with a quota, I'll go back to dial up.

80 bucks for a badge and pretty box? Not a chance in hell. (And No, in-game items don't count for anything.)

My God, what is up with Turbine's patching process? I've never had to endure such a belabored ordeal. It may take all day, ridiculous.

Years off? Shouldn't they be hyping the shit out of it already?

Sure the PC wins, but not by much. A graphical Tour de Force, this game ain't. If I were to sum up this games graphics in a single word, it would be 'utilitarian'.

Oh, so if they'd wanted to, they could have made a whole game.

If I hadn't just fried my 1950pro (who knew an s-video plug could carry current!) I'd be more than a little pissed. I don't think ATi is making any friends with this move.

So.. If you skip the cut-scenes, how long is the game then?

Aside from a few (real) games that utilize Epic's engines, I have no use for them.

Well, that's one way to make sure it doesn't get resold...

or even purchased.

Yup, and back in your day, when you lived with your parents and went to school, you had more time than money.

So now that I'm older and on my own, I'm supposed to piss my money away because I don't have time to enjoy it? Who would even make such a senseless argument? Either a fool or a game developer trying to sell someone a too short game at premium price.

Gee, back in the day we used to bitch about a game being only 20 hours. This game was at the bottom of my list anyway, it won't be missed.

News Comments > PC Dragon Age Has Top-Down Camera
25. Re: PC Dragon Age Has Top-Down Camera Oct 17, 2009, 10:22 Umbragen
 
Yay! They left top-down view in the PC version, but the graphics still look like something from 5 years ago. Get used to it, nothing will improve much as long as the current generation of consoles are the preeminent platform.
