BF1942 servers are still operational, EA hasn't shuttered the master server list. DICE have said they plan to continue support for BF3 beyond the release of BF4. The lack of support will come from the community when they either switch up to BF4 or something else.

I would like to believe that, but it hasn't worked out that way from the other franchises EA has forced into a yearly cycle.

My bullshit meter is pinging pretty hard. Regardless, my only question is how long before they shut down bf3. I've got $100 invested in that now.

It'll shut itself down when people quit playing, most will switch to BF4.

The cycle for multiplayer longevity is getting shorter and shorter.

People are still playing Battlefield 2. So I really don't buy that. The longevity issue is the publishers shutting down all these new fancy ALWAYS ON DRM schemes / integrated social features that no one else wants.

RCRN (Realistic Color Realistic Nights) With the Legacy presets really did wonders for the game for me, graphically speaking. I use the legacy preset. I had to use a torch in the dungeons, but I didn't mind.

There might be something new out that is similar, but you can't go wrong with that one.

Lucas just had a great idea and sold it well. He can't direct, he has a horrible touch on the franchise. By far the best film was Empire Strikes Back, which benefited from a "real" director.

Disney couldn't do any worse.

To call Iron Sky a bad movie is making it obvious you didn't "get it". It was supposed to be a hilariously bad movie. I believe it held up to those expectations.

Not only that, but I don't mind seeing America getting made fun of for once. You have to be able to laugh at yourself.

News Comments > Battlefield 3 Adding Color Grading Removal Option
4. Re: Battlefield 3 Adding Color Grading Removal Option Oct 20, 2012, 15:15 fawker
 
They will probably only enable the option with a 3.99 DLC unlock...

I'm sure someone over at that palace of greed considered it.

Pushing out patches only with DLC is as close to paid patches as you can get.

Oh please. I've been with my provider for almost 10 years www.aei.ca and they have never had caps. There are many other providers out there who are the same. You simply need to get off your ass and shop around.

I'm sure its as simple as that.

5. Re: Re:Indie Rant Sep 12, 2012, 16:26 fawker
 
The whole retro fad at the moment has everyone gushing about old 8 bit games. I didn't have an option, I had to play these games if I wanted to be a gamer back in the day. I wouldn't touch them now with a ten foot pole.

Unfortunately this fad has crept into indie games, and it's allowing some developers skimp on art and whatnot yet still be marketable. Much like Instagram will be forgotten about in a year or so, yet the pictures taken will still look like ass, with no one around to remember why.

Overall, great to see things like Kickstarter. But, its rather embarrassing that these shitty graphics are the face of the indie game movement at the moment.

I can't shake the feeling I'm getting the same content I use to, for a premium additional price with a lot of this DLC.

Really a buzzkill.

Yet another case of cutting content out of a game so you can milk the customer for money far too soon.

The creator of PvZ did indeed lose his job. I hate EA, here comes another lifeless sequel.

Just wanted to say that I am the proud owner of the Nobel Peas Prize. It's a gold trophy you get for beating the campaign, and all the mini games, puzzles, and survival levels.

This is probably my only opportune moment to brag, I have no regrets taking it. I don't even like achievements, but for some reason, I do in this game.

On a sad note, pop cap hasn't come up with anything new in a long time. Now the get a sequel? I won't say it's not warranted, but EA's kiss of death has gotten every developer so far.

It appears cutting edge graphics are still not a selling point for this series. Looks like the same old shit to me.

This would of been great at launch.

If I was head of that clusterfuck, I would be working on some more content, or something that will retain gamers. The whole "cash cow" philosophy for Diablo isn't holding much water at the moment.

Except for bots, maybe.

The original port didn't even bother raising the resolution or texture sizes up. I doubt I will be surprised with this one. Actually, the original port may of been one of my first experiences with a port to begin with.
