News Comments > Battle: Los Angeles Game Plans?
2. Re: Battle: Los Angeles Game Plans? Feb 20, 2011, 21:13 Nucas
 
not a terrible pedigree for a movie game, i actually liked time shift. should have been much better (i remember when the main character was supposed to be voiced by dennis quaid).

still, if the avatar and matrix games couldn't be good, even with active developer support from the movies' directors i don't know if anything can be. chronicles of riddick is firmly in the realm of "statistical anomaly".

Nothing these guys can do for REAL PC gaming. They would have to expose m$ and their most likely illegal trade practices. m$ have continually undermined the whole gaming industry in an attempt to make a substandard platform a priority development over more sophisticated and superior PC systems.

you're talking like this is some centralized conspiracy orchestrated by one company, that's just delusional.

it all comes down to the bottom line. publishers (and most developers, i would wager) are happy with the status quo. the effort, the time and money investment with developing art assets, and so on. just the other day i read some interview of some bigwig with thq (i may even have found it here on blues) basically saying "new hardware? no thanks!" because development cost will go up. that's capitalism.

the pc is so tightly tied to the console hardware cycle, i havn't had to upgrade my video card for probably 2 years now, and i play everything maxed the fuck out. it's no one company's fault, certainly not microsoft.

the republican party represents corporate self interest; fox news convinces the public their interests are actually served by voting in favor of actions that serve those ends, often at public expense. it's a beautiful cycle of corruption. see: inbred 'conservatives' making less than 20,000 dollars who live in trailers voting against "obamacare".

i'm honestly surprised anyone here actually liked stargate universe, i thought it was garbage and apparently the viewership agreed. the writers didn't want to write stargate anymore, they wanted to write some fucking stupid soap opera with a popular franchise as a backdrop.

i used to get away with watching sg1 or atlantis with my roommates but when i watched the series premier of universe it was so embarrassing i had to turn it off and apologize.

they canceled atlantis, a good show with a proven track record, so they could fund universe and destroy the brand. bravo.

i remember five years ago scifi had the power trio - sg1, atlantis and battlestar galactica. now they have ghost hunters and wrestling.

I suppose its too much wishful thinking that this will be an open world game taking place on several different planets? Thought so.
very first 60 second cg promo trailer is released a year out guys! let's all assume the very worst!
WHOA WHO GOT HALO IN MY MASS EFFECT??!

jesus christ, what a load of god damn blubbering over nothing. the series has gotten better with each game, i expect more of the same.

Pleasing the crybabies/whiners/elitists/PC gamers is not only harder than rocket science, it is basically impossible and more to the point, it's an absolute waste of time to even try.

your signature was actually on my mind when i read the comments here initially.

News Comments > No PC Dead Space 2 Demo
18. Re: No PC Dead Space 2 Demo Dec 9, 2010, 00:50 Nucas
 
well, that's a pleasant surprise for me. last i'd heard news on dead space 2 it was that there was no pc sku planned so i started tuning it out, that was quite a while ago.

why all the venom for dead space 2? the first one was a competent port and there's no rumblings of any odious drm.

is it really because there's no demo? i would have thought people interested in this sequel would know what they're getting into from the first one.

some people here just sound like they're not happy if they aren't pissed off all the time.

News Comments > EA on Mirror's Edge
13. Re: EA on Mirror's Edge Nov 30, 2010, 11:54 Nucas
 
i thought mirror's edge was flawless, beginning to end. i even liked the slow parts, like the climbing up the atrium, just because i thought it was interesting (i guess they were trying to emphasize what someone with this skillset would be capable of besides just speed, at least that's what i took away from it)

it makes me feel weird when i hear developers or suits harping on about a game's perceived shortcomings when i didn't personally feel like it had any of them. it sounds like pandering.

i can agree with complaints about the narrative, though. derivative garbage. wouldn't have been so bad if it didn't make a point of taking itself so seriously.

i've never had antivirus software running on my system. the most extreme i've ever gotten was running firewall software to micromanage ports, which i now do with my router anyway.

my protection system is quite comprehensive:
don't do anything stupid.
keep an eye on the running process list and it's tally once or twice a week (from a fresh install of windows to my regular software, the tally is always 30)
use opera since 2002, the most unpopular browser on the planet.
check windows update once a month.

wow! amazing! i do periodically scan (we're talking like once a year) my system and have never found anything remiss. i also format once a year or two just out of habit. also, fuck norton.

OK, most games don't have "good" writing. The only game I've ever completed for story's sake alone was Dreamfall.
and then it ends with a fucking terrible cliffhanger. excellent writing 101.

i did love that game, but that was infuriating.

Please can you use quotation marks around "analyst" if it refers to Pachter. Sadly enough I predicted it would be him when I heard such a ridiculous claim.
clearly, you should be a wedbush morgan analyst! your skills place you in austere company.

I still think it's funny we're bitching about sixty dollar games when they'd be $150 by now if they actually followed the inflation curve like everything else.

just like everything else, including the average hourly wage, right? that's tripled in the last 20 years, right?

Icewind Dale was alright, but Baldur's Gate was 10x better. Icewind Dale was more combat-oriented and had less story elements. At least the combat was hella-fun.
what i liked about icewind dale was how it did in fact have a variety of subplots all tied together by an overarching plot, but that it wasn't the focus of the game. that is, if you weren't paying attention, you could miss it. all the areas were very well fleshed out and intelligently tied together if you were interested enough in the story to look around.
(the elven archmage's daughter goes to dorn's deep to help the dwarves despite the sudden break in their relations despite being mutually beseiged by an orc horde, they build a hasty tomb honoring her.. and later you meet the dark elf responsible for selling dwarven weapons to the horde causing the schism between the two groups if you're attentive and ask intelligent questions.. and all of it engineered by the demon in the shadows pulling the strings, whose archnemesis you dispatch earlier in the game, and..)

that said, icewind dale was definitely about the combat. if you enjoy infinity engine combat, icewind dale is a must have, but don't say it doesn't have a story because you missed it. icewind dale was one of avellone's projects.
