Whoever decided that PC UI's should be the same as cell phone UI's needs to be ran out of town.

Get ready for more of this in the upcoming years. With many developers not doing dedicated servers, this is the end result.

Gods and Kings should have been the game they shipped. It was really good.

I just hope that at some point they do Alpha Centauri II.

It will be amusing when the Czech Republic invades Greece next month.

I love how everyone in the thread raves about how great the game is, but everyone is "burnt out" or "taking a break" from it. That tells me that at the end of the day it's just another typical MMO treadmill.

I wish Valve would at least give a status update as to what exactly is (or isn't) being worked on in regards to the HL series.

I know the cool kids all act like it's an outdated game that no one cares about anymore, but I personally am still eager for more.

Being in the MMO business trashed this company
Well that and activision.

Seriously, them giving up independence, and merging with Activision was when the downward trend really came on strong. Until then, they were a solid company. Now it's about how to maximize profit, at the expense of everything else. Just look at Diablo 3.

Funny how much can change in 2 years. 2 years ago many supposedly wise people were predicting that Zynga was "the future of PC gaming", and were proclaiming that gaming on a PC would forever be the domain of grandma playing Farmville on Facebook.

It's easy to bash CliffyB, but what I think will be interesting is to see is what Epic does post-CliffyB. Say what you want about him, but he delivered successful games for Epic for nearly 20 years. When the Unreal games took a nosedive was when he stopped working on them. Frankly I think that's why PC gamers hate him, above all else.

Annoyances about his personality aside, I'm not sure Epic has anyone that can fill his shoes. They have some solid artists and level builders, but I don't see any great designers. It's like id Software without John Romero around.

Hope they do something about the game crashing every 1.5 hours on win XP. I rather like this game.


Hah, you're lucky the game even runs on XP. I don't blame them for not supporting it one bit. Quit being stubborn and upgrade to Win7 already.

That's like bringing gun control or religion into an argument. Neither of you will convince the other.

It's more like trying to talk to a creationist about the theory of evolution, actually. XP is 11 years old, ffs, there is no good reason to continue using it.

I really don't think the the monthly fee model is dead. The problem is that no one has been approaching it intelligently.

Is your game going to be a "wow-killer"? If you're asking that question, you're in it for the wrong reasons. Don't shoot for WoW.

Shoot for "the game is fun, fills a niche, and remains profitable because we didn't sink tens of millions into development".

MMOs before WoW were successful with a fraction of the player base, because they were designed intelligently, and not looked at like the goose that laid the golden egg.

Fill a niche, don't try to take over the world.

Am I supposed to be excited by this? My guess is they are going to have some super wrapper that makes Win games run on their version of Unix?

They aren't going to be using Unix, because it would be costly to license the code. Linux was based on the fundamental concepts of Unix, but they have diverged greatly over the years.

Encore? Hmm, sales a little flat from all the lackluster repeating offers?

You're actually bitching about a sale?

Par for the course for modern corporate/wall street behavior.

No one gives a shit about long-term investments, and building a company that will last a hundred years. They all seem to think it's a get rich quick scheme, which it is for many. What they don't care to notice is the trail of wreckage they're leaving behind in the countries that made their success possible.

THQ and their shareholders would have dick without the talent that made games, but the talent will be the first ones they screw over.

Patience pays off again. Scored Gods and Kings, and the GOTY upgrade for Civ5 for $13 and some change. Not bad at all.

The problem with Watch Dogs is Far Cry 3. What was shown at E3 in Far Cry 3 was nothing (at least visually) compared to the release version.

As for GTA 4, I will agree that Rockstar's Club and GFWL was a mess, but if you look at all the extra settings that the PC version got over the consoles I don't see how it's a shitty port.

Also how is LA Noire a shitty port as well? Looks good, plays good, just lacks multiplayer and side things to do in the game.
\

It's a shitty port because you can take all of those fancy graphics settings, and set it at the lowest setting, and the game will show it isn't using a fraction of your memory, and you load up a game and it still plays like a slideshow from Assville.

After GTA4 I just can't seem to get excited about another GTA game. Hopefully they optimize their engine this time around.

No fuck you for the spoiler.
