it's actually kind of heartbreaking wondering what could have been if they'd released what looked like a great game ten fucking years ago before the world rushed past them.

a senator not voting against the interests of the average citizen, in favor of corporate profits? what mistake put him in office?

i note with some dismay he's apparently the only protester to this revolting bill.

Whack a mole dysfunctional and self-confused SP campaign is top notch, .. somehow i welcome the end of the world suddenly.

maybe you could cite something in modern warfare's stead you consider top notch. it would help me learn why exactly you're so confused.

onboard for the campaign, just like all the modern warfares. i actually never played any of them online, except at a friend's house on ps3 or something.

It's people like you who help perpetuate this franchises bullshit.

the bullshit of top notch single player campaigns, sure.

What a bunch of douche bags, haven't seen any plans to protect consumers from corporation or the government. Well at Sen Franken seems to be at least trying to stop the corporations. I'm not really sure where he stands on protection from the government.

that's the role the government should be taking on itself, protecting it's citizens from corporations running this country, and this world, into the fucking ground on the backs of the uneducated.

but i live in a dream world. it's so pleasant here, asleep..

Fantastic, even during the downtime, the console still works just fine for everything except online gaming. Kinda like an intact 360 without a subscription.

Yea, Bioware got scared when the professional and gaming community as a whole considered Dragon Age 2 a complete failure. They probably scraped and begged EA for a little more development time for ME3.

we did? that's funny, i remember enjoying it both times i played it. didn't they also announce it selling one million copies? just because all the nerds on whatever message board you like to read cry about how it's a terrible game or whatever the fuck doesn't make it public consensus. i'm getting sick of all this hyperbole.

if anything i think it's complimentary that bioware's titles are always so good that there's this much bawling and whining. that said, i wonder what's going on at bioware.. even as someone who enjoyed DA2, that it was rushed out the door is apparent. since when does bioware need to rush anything?

i must assume it's EA's corrosive influence as there are no other major changes at their studio i can think of to account for it. that is unfortunate. bioware knows what they're doing and need to be left to it without fucking brainless corporate suits meddling in it.

with such a short dev cycle one million copies must surely be enough to financially justify a sequel, hopefully. and hopefully that means this time EA keeps their fucking hands off since i imagine a lot of that one million was pre-orders and they may very well have burned that bridge with their greed.

News Comments > Obsidian Layoffs
17. Re: Obsidian Layoffs Apr 27, 2011, 01:04 Nucas
 
i started worrying about this studio's future when i saw their new game is a dungeon siege sequel.

so far it just seems like obsidian hasn't been free to do their own thing on their own timetable. they're always doing somebody's sequel bitch work. kotor 2 was the worst, a young team without the clout bioware had to tell lucasarts to fuck off and wait for a good game.

then again it seems to go the other way too, they dallied around with alpha protocol too much, it should have been their breakout top shelf title. they pulled a valve and totally revamped the design halfway through, scrapped a lot of material and repurposed more to suit the new gameplay direction.. they just didn't get a half life out of it. it seriously needed probably another 6 months of content generation and polish, minimum.. co-incidentally about the same amount of time sega had them shelve the game without funding more work on it.

all this said, i've sincerely enjoyed every obsidian game i've played. i never encountered any of the supposed crippling bugs in nwn2. mask of the betrayer was superb. alpha protocol was a very solid game (after the intro saudi arabia levels which were bad enough to almost put me off it). there is nothing fallout 3 did better than new vegas.

i think there's a lot of talent in need of better leadership and better luck.

eRe4s3r wrote on Apr 1, 2011, 12:37:
I still have nightmares from that voice. For the record, the German Voice Acting was also exceptional (for a change!) and switching between the 2 languages i noticed that there was hardly any difference (except the language). I wish all Voice Acting would be done this well, not like in Dragon Age 2 where people talk in freaky dialects, which simply does not translate into other languages (its a noob error for voice recording)
every language has dialects, exploiting them for flavor isn't a mistake. having everyone speak with a faux british accent is a mistake that i'm glad they're moving away from. i'd love to hear the russian localization of da2 myself and see if they took advantage of regional accents as well. "noob" "error", whatever you say boring guy.

1. Re: Music industry will force licenses on Amazon Cloud Player—or else. Mar 31, 2011, 12:28 Nucas
 
i think amazon's position makes sense. they just enable consumers to make fair use of their purchased music.

i don't expect it to go well for them in court, though. the american government should be assuming a new role in this century: protecting citizens from the mega-corporations that care only about quarterly revenue gains at any cost.

unfortunately the few with mountains of wealth at their disposal have already integrated themselves into washington too tightly to see the rights of citizens prioritized.

and so the judicial system will do it's part for their corporate sponsors, i'm sure. someone has to fund that re-election campaign, after all. or, even better, need to lay the groundwork to retire into a cushy private sector job! this is america, get yours at any price.

1. Re: Japan quake hit iPod battery supply Mar 31, 2011, 01:59 Nucas
 
This plant is important for Apple and likely scores of other electronics makers because it produces 70 percent of the world’s supply of a polymer — polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) — critical to lithium-ion battery manufacturing, specifically the type of battery used in iPods.

that's crazy that nearly three quarters of global production comes from one factory.

i also find it funny how it's ipods first and foremost! but it's "likely" important to other products.

Publishers still have a role and will for the foreseeable future, but it has definitely diminished with the explosion of digital distribution, and I for one find it a welcome and long overdue development.

True, true. I just hope singleplayer doesn't go down with them.

why would it?

While it's great that Bioware is supporting DX10 and 11, I'm pretty sure 99% of those effects could be done on DX9 with equal performance, if not better. And why are higher-res textures and dynamic lighting limited to DX10 and 11?

i hadn't really read up on the matter, i'll confess, but i've gathered over the years those restrictions were largely arbitrarily imposed as some artificial upgrade device for windows users, which can be sidestepped for at least one title i know of: halo 2.

it could just be clueless nerds repeating themselves though, i don't presume to speak with authority.

Both Google and Apple should just give up on web browsers. Neither of them can beat Firefox (let alone IE) for market share, despite the fact that they give their browsers away for free. They been trying for years, but nobody gives a crap. Firefox serves the needs of anyone who doesn't like IE.
it also consistently manages to be the least secure browser on the planet.
