Even on sale, it's still 15 bucks for the Doom 3 BFG edition? Carmack must be huffing that rocket fuel or something.

Quake is still selling for $9.99, was on sale for $5.99 and then Customer's Choice brought it down to $2.49 or something. A game that's 16 years old can still command a price which matches what a game like Deus Ex 2 sells for while on sale.

Whole lot of nonsense coming from camp id these days.

Wanna hear the new dubstep song I wrote?

Yeah, I bought it since it was on sale and it's pretty fun...

Model numbers never seem to match up with performance, so people have to look at other attributes like clock speed or core count. We then end up with talk like, "But this one here has four cores, surely it must play games better than the one with two"—or the good old, "But this one has more gigahertz!"

Except even then it's not always as clear as it can be without actually knowing the difference between the core architecture, socket type, and so forth from within the same manufacturer let alone two. It's kind of like when Intel came out with the Conroe/Allendale with lower speed SKUS and smoked the previous generation Prescott processors of much higher speed.

For a long time now, there have been box specs provided for both Intel and AMD processors because of their differences so you can't just slap a processor speed or define what an 'MPC-HD1' processor based on the amount of cores which it has and call it a day. Either way, there will still need to be tech specs so the average Joe doesn't think his Q6600 is up to snuff in spite of meeting that quad core criteria.

The same applied for any other piece of hardware, really.

It's either that or we simply homogenize the industry and eliminate competition if such a rating system were developed.

My two cents if I understand it correctly anyway...

You guys are angry now, just wait until Ridley finds a way to bridge Blade Runner in to the Alien universe!

Noomi Rapace is replaced with Harrison Ford in the sequel.

I'm not sure what I make towards the story. Either it's going to showcase the downfall of the Weyland-Yutani Corporation and blow open their secret weapons division research program or Gearbox just did a facelift of the Aliens plot and substituted dead colony families with Marines.

I can type out my reasoning behind those two points, but I've been trying to word it how I want without much success for the past hour or so, so I won't.

Either way, I'll just buy it and hope it's not any worse than AvP.

News Comments > Diablo III PvP Nears; Team Deathmatch Shelved
25. Re: Diablo III PvP Nears; Team Deathmatch Shelved Dec 28, 2012, 10:58 Wallshadows
 
PvP won't work well in D3 either.

The reason why this is is because they're trying to balance each class like they would in an MMO rather than take heat for having each class have a distinct skill advantage over the others like in D2.

Now it'll likely boil down to who can stack the most +crit damage +crit % and see who can crit first.

I guess we'll be seeing D3 balance patch notes on her as frequent as those from WoW.

Finally bought Torchlight 2 and am in the process of making a Cannoneer.

It's a really good game and you would never guess it's only $15. The problem is that Diablo 3 has left me with such a sour taste in my mouth towards this particular genre and I don't feel as though I can get the most out of it for the time being.

I have not seen one episode of GoT legitimately since I don't have HBO.

Am I doing this right?

Wow, that's pretty unbelievable. I would go on a crusade and submit it to every kind of gaming-related news site and see how many are willing to continue driving this game in to the dirt.

My guess is a lot.

After all that they still aren't starting Tebow. Why did they bother getting him again? At this point I doubt he'll ever play in the NFL again.

Oh no! No more Tebow?

It's an error within an error. We need to go deeper!

Also, dude running the retail PC ran in to the fire so it makes me question if he knows what he is talking about or doing.

Next-gen and 30 fps in the same sentence feels a little contradictory.

I am sure there is a way to salvage the game itself but at this point, there is no way in hell I would even think about dropping cash on this title due to all the bad publicity and asshatery coming from camp Hammerpoint.

For me, the damage is done and it's not even a blip on my radar even if it turned out to be ten times the game which DayZ is.

News Comments > Star Wars: The Old Republic Expansion Announced

So I wonder how they will scale the five extra levels with the current operations since it seems there won't be any new flavors added (or at least none that have been announced).

Will it only take level 55 players and dump the level 50 players? Will the gear, health, and damage scale with those extra levels? Unless they have an entirely new raiding tier for the new cap, what a fucking mess this will turn out to be on top of the mess they already got themselves in to.
