We live in a world where Zenimax/Bethesda owns Doom, Quake, Wolfenstein, Fallout, and are claiming they own the work John Carmack has done while working on VR tech for Facebook.

Have a nice day.

Yet another reason id Software never should have sold out to Zenimax in the first place.

As much as I'd like be against what Zenimax is doing here, it sure sounds like legally they have the upper hand here. The fact that Luckey is on record as acknowledging their ownership of Carmack's work is a silver bullet for Zenimax.

You can pretty much forget about them ever doing an open source release of Tech5.

Well after civilization falls, you have to have some way to transfer your funds to Lord Humungus to keep his army at bay for another week.

Call me crazy but I'd rather them put that "an irresponsible amount" of money into the damned game, and not some trinket.

They claimed to fix SLI support but it is still broken.

One month in, and no SLI support on a Source engine game. Not impressed.

Clearly if you don't have 15 dollars on a card you don't deserve to play the game you just paid 60 for. You're obviously broke, a loser, and need to get a job.

Or maybe you use pre-paid cards so companies can't double bill your actual bank account.

I'm not going to lie, they won me over with that 2.0 patch. The game is truly a lot of fun now, and I don't regret getting the expansion at all. Adventure mode is a lot of fun.

I never thought I'd be saying that, either. This is a rare case where I think Blizzard got the message, and listened to the fans. The game feels like it was made by people that actually like the Diablo games now.

Leno had better ratings than Letterman, and Justin Beiber sells more albums than Tool.

Just because you win the pop contest, doesn't mean you're the best.

I didn't realize Runic had bloated into a huge corporate dev house with large-scale development going on.

Anyone else find it extremely amusing that these two companies ended up in this mess together? They deserve each other.

You seem to be confusing Direct3D with DirectX. OpenGL can't do sound or input.

As for OpenGL, as it's older than D3D, it's interesting that it's not in wider use. Why might that be? I was playing more games in OGL in the 90s than now.

Honestly it's because the committee that steers development of OpenGL put the focus on the wrong things during a crucial time in the early-mid 2000's, and OpenGL fell behind what Direct X 10 was doing. It didn't doom the API, but it made people weary of learning how to use it.

Now it's right there on par with DX10-11, which is why we've seen many more games using it, and Linux support is starting to really take off again. Between SDL, OpenGL, and Pulse Audio, Linux basically has everything Direct X offers.

It really is amazing that they have the nerve to put DRM on a movie that had to be fan-funded. Greedy assholes.

I've been having a lot of fun with the PC version. I just wish it had supported SLI from the start.

Great news! Valve gave Linux gaming the shot in the arm it needed, and it's nice to see it taking off.

I got it for 45 on a pre-order deal, and do not regret getting it at all. Is it perfect? No. I wish you could at least pick which map you want to play (although that does eliminate the 24/7 map fixation that seems to occur in a lot of games). There is also no dedicated server files offered to use yourself. You have to use their infrastructure, which I do have to say worked fine last night for me.

However the game itself is pure fun. I'm not wanting to sound like I'm aboard the hype train too much, but last night I had the same feeling I had when playing UT and UT2k4 back in the day. It's futuristic, it's fast paced, and the wall running really works nice giving you tons of possibilities for movement when not in a titan. The titans are a lot of fun, and the unlock system seems like it won't be a grind like the BF games can sometimes be.

Even though it has no LAN support, and you don't get your own dedicated server files, I do have to say that the performance has been great. Last night I was pinging 20's all night with no noticeable lag at all. No crashes either, it seems completely stable. Very smooth launch night.

Personally I haven't had one connection issue all night. In fact, I've had a blast all night all. I'm loving that a Science Fiction based shooter is popular! I've got the same sort of feeling I had the night I played UT2K4 for the first time.
