i'm not too keen on prone, it was a worthy sacrifice for gameplay in BC2. ppl are going to abuse it, and many cool maps will become camp graveyards. hopefully they release mod tools so u can limit the number of snipers per team or some other balancing tool.

well you only earn coin while you offline during the beta. credits, and research XP you get for battle, gold you'll have purchase after release. but yes, this game is pure crack. some russian tanks are overpowered, but there is some balance to it as each nation has overpowered tanks of their own. the russian tanks have higher armor and dmg, but much lower accuracy and fire rate than the german tanks, and the armor is not just down to thickness, but also the angle. good tanks will ricochet alot of shots. the american tanks i really don't have much experience, but the t32 seems ok, their guns are somewhere inbetween the russian and german's.

as good as i find steam now, they really need some actual competition. there's no real consumer choice at all if they ever start overstating their authority on user's computers. Other groups need to be given a few of the same breaks that steam had so we don't end up with a hyper centralized power entity before there's even a fully developed market. which is basically what we have now with steam vs direct2drive or impusle.

News Comments > Carmack: Direct3D Now "Rather Better" Than OpenGL

While it's true that hardware tessellation existed in OpenGL as a form of vendor extension (ATI's primarily), it didn't become part of the official specs until NVidia started supporting it last year (to be DX11 compliant, i suspect).

not much different than the current physics situation. everyone could be using it through openCL, instead we're stuck with two proprietary players in a tech cold war with havok and physx. openGL and CL will always be universaly better in that they're more available, and compatible. they won't have all the bells and whistles of directX because they don't have the marketing budget, or pure rape appeal of directX.

if they code this game right you'll be able to blow away the xbox with a $50 video card. they won't tho, and you're right it'll prol take $1000 just to get minimum frames up to 60

well at least it's a realistic timeframe for a failed north korean invasion. soldiers takeoff in a fleet of autogyro's from korea at 5am, planes are hit by sidewinders somewhere over the pacific at 10am

so the differences between two platforms are mildly higher shadow, and lighting. pc gaming running at most likely the native resolution for the monitor it's on, and the console probably at like 540p or some other weaksauce resolution, can't tell how much texture quality differences there are without knowing the monitor resolutions, and what type and settings were on each monitor.

both look like they share the same FOV which will probably induce motion sickness on the pc from the camera bobbing and zooming around like gears of war on pc. i'm sure it's real difficult for a team like crytek to program in a field of view setting, it's only been around since call of duty 1 or so, so it's understandable.

there's many countries you can move to that tax and serve the way you're looking to live. my best advice would be to move to one of them.

not the current one sir. they've done exactly the opposite. they haven't completely dismantled what funding was already in place, but it's not from a lack of effort.

don't let the headline fool your, the canadian federal government would have nothing to do with an artsy fartsy project like video game development, unless it was a video game about accounting, and power point presentations. this was funded by the ontario provincial government.

Hang on, let me get your tin foil hat for you...

Reducing the number of support requests for their #1 support issue is worth "all the attention and effort this project seems to have behind it" solely due to the cost savings of not having to support that issue as much any more. They have millions of users, if a small percentage of those open support tickets for account security issues, that translates into big bucks.

doesn't change the fact that it can be used as a tool against us as easily as it can clear up some issues for valve. go back to your freedom fries.

Again, what? This is about changing account settings, not locking games to a specific PC.

no but it sets up the infrastructure for locking games in place more than it does any sort of account management protection. you'd be wise to be wary of some rape lurking behind this announcement. it'd be foolish to think otherwise with all the attention and effort this project seems to have behind it.

nobody that matters gives a flying crap about the grammy's or any other major bought and paid for award. don't try to drag gaming through the mud of your farcical pagentry, it already deals with enough mud by itself.

oh they're tanks, and they live a game that closely resembled a crack delivery service. simple controls, but they're all very detailed and hisorically accurate reproductions of prototype and mass produced ww2 tanks.

One could guess that Nvidia and Microsoft are tired of throwing money into a ever consuming hole of nothingness.

Waste of time and money, after a couple years running they have done nothing.

how dare you! my father worked his hands to the bone so he would have money to throw in the money hole! AMERICAN NEEDS THE MONEY HOLE!
