Silly. Admit to cutting content due to their budget but hey, lets throw money in to merchandising a product which may or may not be financially viable instead of putting every last cent in to content to make a better game.

No wonder they need funding.

Guess there's not a toggle option?

Thank you for the impressions. I'll grab it for $5-$10 some day...


So far the only option is to use a third-party program and to download it from AVPgalaxy or some-such site. It's so bad saturated on screen that it looks like you're looking through an old-school security camera.

That said, enjoy XCOM! I would recommend Hardcore mode for added 'we're fucked if we mess up' game play.

For the handful of us who have bought A:CM, there was a recent patch released which clocked in at nearly 4GB which improved textures, AI, and a bunch of other tidbits.

I decided to try it out and see if the changes actually made a difference and it certainly has. The visuals, while still not as good as the E3 demo, are improved in regards to lighting and textures but also introduced a very annoying film grain look. The new AI provides 'smarter' Aliens which will use the environment to their advantage and special attacks which I've never seen them do before in the campaign which leads to a more difficult campaign.

I'd say it's worth picking up in the bargain bin/Steam sale for $10 if you're really hard-pressed for a game to play.

Wow, Blackrock is actually a server which is accepting transfers from another server? That's pretty amazing considering how many times the free transfer has been used to transfer players off. I guess Blackrock is no longer full and you don't have to gtfo...

As for merging servers, I can see problems being made in terms of forced name changes and such which is usually one of the big debacles brought up when talked about.

My friend picked up a game card for me to try and get back in to WoW, see the new 5.2 raid, and the Thunder Island so I obliged. I then went to queue in to LFR and after an hour waiting, finally got in. Well, don't you know it, we get to the last boss and as soon as we are about to pull, half the raid drops off and about two minutes later my client is disconnected.

Log back in, I'm no longer in the raid.

Yup. Fuck that, told my friend I can't play a game where those monkeys at Blizzard keep spinning their wheels on content updates which results in more of hot fixes, rolling restarts, crashing, and whatever else it feels like. I dare call them incompetent for being unable to learn from their shitty patching cycle over the past, what, eight years. They've even managed to convince some along the way who actually defend these issues and that's the worst thing about it.

I'll just take my friend out to a nice dinner and call it even.

This is one of those cases where I hope a crack team can come up with a method to allow offline play.

It would be quite interesting and would be the icing on this train wreck.

Silver lining, my friend! Now can you please pass the jug of Mountain Dew and container of Nutella so I can get back to WoW?

One can only hope that experiences such as this are fabricated and untrue.

On this other hand, this is EA we're talking about...

I bet Raimi didn't want to have Thrall as one of the main stars and Chris Metzen pushed for immediate veto powers.

Then something, something nine months later gtfo.

This guy has been doing a very solid job at keeping the community in the loop. I wonder if he always felt this way or if he was just told to sit down and shut up during development.

Not quite live just yet as I have been told. Not surprising though, Blizzard has rarely met their original time frame when it comes to content updates and even after were usually met with a couple of days consisting of lag and rollbacks. You would think they would learn to at least extend the usual four hour time frame to eight hours just to cover their ass and if it's up sooner, hey they're working really hard for you!

Everyone should take a page from Scotty.

Maybe if the Diablo 3 community provided some form of feed back on the item quality and how to improve it, this could have been done sooner.

Blizzard has to do all the hard thinking on how to fix what's broken so kudos to them for finding the time and resources to put this in to motion.
