News Comments > Infinity Ward on Modern Warfare 2's Length
30. Re: Infinity Ward on Modern Warfare 2's Length Oct 20, 2009, 19:47 Umbragen
 
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

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.

There's a buttload of games coming out soon, I'll only be able to afford half of what I want. This is just one less complication.

I don't know what Pitchford is whining about, it's not like Valve makes real games anymore. "Left 4 Dead?" Isn't that another name for "Shit We Can Crap Out In Our Sleep?"

Whatever, there are lots of other games coming out. It looks to be a good season, even without all the sell outs.

WoW still has server problems - why do you think they have to reset the machines every week.

News Comments > Star Wars: The Old Republic Beta Applications

Generally, people don't abandon MMO's because of server problems or connection problems. The reasons they dump them has to do with actual gameplay or at least in-game issues. I suppose it could be possible to have a game so inaccessible that it would cause them to fail, but that's never been the case. (I can't speak to Asian MMO's. I wouldn't play them, even for free.)

...it will probably get released too late to make an impact now.


On the contrary, Funcom will still find a way to release too early. It's what they do.

News Comments > Cuts at Funcom; The Secret World Delayed
6. Re: Cuts at Funcom; The Secret World Delayed Sep 29, 2009, 13:34 Umbragen
 
It really is a shame, if Funcom had managed to deliver a fully realized game when Age of Conan launched, they would now be riding high or at least weathering the economic downturn intact. The same could be said of Warhammer - Both games commanded the attention of the community, they had great pre-sale numbers and both dropped the ball. Nay, they didn't drop it, they spiked the damn thing. And the real tragedy is, Funcom knew better -> Anarchy Online.

By all means get your politics out there, wear it on your sleeve. It makes it easy to identify where NOT to spend my money.

I'd be willing to give it a shot, but after 10 years I don't remember my account name. I can't access email from that long ago. I have no way to get my account back. I had a fine stable of Dreads and I'm not interested in starting a no-skill noob.

Took awhile to find, but I still have my original key code. They should offer a way to input that data, cross-referenced to my name/address or some other identifying information.

Considering what the company is known for, this is a remarkable 'first effort' at making a real game.

The tessellation is impressive. The realistic diffraction patterns are cool but I don't know how good shadows really need to be.
