News Comments > Borderlands 2 PC Wish List Request
26. Re: Borderlands 2 PC Wish List Request Sep 8, 2011, 01:04 Jim
 
Really? There are like about 3000 threads in the gearbox forums on this topic. Guess they all were ignored for #2, like they were for #1, I suppose.

News Comments > Borderlands 2 Announcement Soon?
35. Re: Borderlands 2 Announcement Soon? Aug 2, 2011, 13:55 Jim
 
now to see if any of the multitude of requested minor changes (for borderlands) make it into borderlands 2.

last time around they assured us they would be listening to the community. That resulted in DLC and level cap changes but none of the most requested features.

also interesting to see is if they will keep the game console sucky for the PC.

10 hours? So they are adding the deleted sections back to the game and charging for a new one? I guess the cost of "dlc" would not make them enough money? I am not impressed. They should just give the franchise back to piranha bytes who can make a true open world game.

i'll wait a year and a half, pick up the gold edition which includes all the upcoming DLCs and expansions and signature content for one low price. I love the games but hate their business model which rapes the most loyal customers.

steam does not give out free copies of games you already have, unless whatever you are activating explicitly states that it will.

if you like your friend, buy him a copy. the devs will thank you.

News Comments > EA on Mirror's Edge
24. Re: EA on Mirror's Edge Nov 30, 2010, 14:40 Jim
 
Mirrors edge was mostly fine. it brought a lot of the 2D arcade jumping concepts to 3D, and some of the moves are obscure and frustrating. The shift to a weapon fps added some more confusion.

I think the execution needed some refinement. I also found the MP challenges to be interesting but abandoned them once I saw the leaderboards were nothing but cheats and hacks.

The game did not need MP. It needed a solid and well executed SP. Think Assassins Creed but with solid colors in a futuristic setting.

But now everything has to work in either a squad setting or a pvp setting. I think that is unfortunate since the execution for a lot of these modes is lacking. I'd much rater see the time and money spent in making the SP game better rather than having MP modes nobody will ever play.

News Comments > Six Days in Fallujah Still Possible
8. Re: Six Days in Fallujah Still Possible Nov 16, 2010, 12:15 Jim
 
Eh, they should put it up for preorder on steam to get the extra cash they need. Brink did this 6 months before their release date. I think a lot of people would go for this if the developer is open and honest about their needs and the "risk" involved.

In fact I think that would be an interesting development model where you could cut out the funding normally done by the publisher and instead shift to funding by gamers. Of course as with any "risk" gamers should receive a "reward" if the game is massively popular.

Gabe, I am taking to you....

So I guess the DLC model did not work well for them. Take DLC, integrate it into the game and re-release it as a new game for the same price. Way to go. This must be a sign of things to come.

Well, you are entitled to your opinion. I just really hate steam.
I long for the days when I could buy a game, plug in the CD code, install, and play. BF: 1942 is a great example of that.

Never have and never will buy a game that requires steam.
oh yeah, plug in the cd code, look for the cd, hope that it isn't scratched, look at the waiting screen while it does a disk check... those days won't be missed.

DLC in this game is useless. example is weapons, which are enhanced versions of the guns available in the game. the problem? there is no way to get ammo for them aside from repurchasing from black market.
