Gold Filter=COnsole shitty graphics optimizer filter

That makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. Biasing a palette is an artistic decision, not a technical one.

The whole game was done in this style intentionally. Like DX was in blue. And DX:IW was purple. I don't get why you'd want to remove it.

Whatever floats your boat, I guess.

I just have to say this: I'm incredibly impressed with Eidos's support o this game post-launch. I hope that this becomes a norm rather than an exception, and that they keep up the great work.

Well that and the fact that this is mostly WoW expansion and Facebook games.

I'm honestly quite surprised that NV/ATI are weathering this economic climate, given the fact that 5-year-old 8xxx series hardware still runs most modern games admirably well. I'm still running a pair of 8800GTX's in SLI on my current rig, and I can play *anything* maxxed out in HD resolution.

All I lose out on is tessilation (Oooooo...)

^D^

Heh...;) Keep telling yourself that...;) Or, do what I did and replace your aging 8800GTs with a single inexpensive AMD HD 5770 or 6770--and get ready for some vastly improved graphics. And I don't mean DX11 vs DX9--I'm talking vastly improved DX9 game displays. Until you yank those old ponies out and replace them with something current you simply won't be able to imagine let alone appreciate the difference that will greet you eyes the very first time you game. I was amazed, frankly. Now I am assuming that your current monitor isn't as old hat as your gpus--'cause if you are still doing CRT or you are looking at a 5-year-old LCD display, then I might not bother. Ugh...;) Seriously guy, you are missing a lot, no kidding.

I have a Radeon 6-series card in my shuttle in the livingroom; I really just don't see a big difference between the 8800gtx and the 6770 IQ.

Now going back to the 7950gtx? There I DEFINITELY see a quality dropoff....

*shrug*

PS: That you, |2|?

It's Fallout all over again, with the same people saying "Well I never played the original, but this looks cool!".

What is really sad is that the original X-Com was released on the Playstation. There is no excuse besides laziness, and not having any original concepts for their own damned game.

Honestly?

My flippant tongue in cheek comment earlier in the thread aside, I think 2K:M addressed all of that in this video. They are doing a genesis story, not tacking on to the events that were in the originals. Making something new that doesn't detract from the old. DX:HR did the same thing, most panned the idea, now just about everyone here loves it.

Now I can't say whether the game will be good or not, but the mechanics and the style of the artwork do seem intriguing; like an x-files in the 50s. The idea of seeking out and upgrading your team in an FPS sounds appealing as well.

You're right about the Fallout thing. Many that never played XCOM will get this because it's different. But consider this: I honestly never played Fallout 1/2/T until after I played FO:3. Those types of games just didn't appeal to me back then, but the new ones made me rethink that, and caused me to seek them out and pay for / play them.

And I don't think that's a bad thing for deserving IP at all.

Haha, yeah I mean that all of those games had at least one of those qualities; interesting characters, monsters, or plot. With Quake it was the all about the monsters, weapons and ambiance. I still find the Quake monsters far more memorable than the strogg strogg strogg of later installments.

It wouldn't be possible for me to agree more withing the confines of this universe.

Best quote from that mess of an article's feedback column:

GTP! Thank goodness someone's identified my problem at last! Why just the other day I had the urge to jump on an ostrich and go grab some eggs, all whilst jousting. When will they be making a pill for this?
- Joan, Canada, 21/9/2011 21:43


Maybe one day people will wake up and realize that there are just pain some sick, effed-up people out there. It doesn't matter what they do in their leisure, it's their mind that's already wired wrong.

He's a family man now: BMW X5 and a Tesla, if memory serves.

Ferraris are family cars: Wife in the passenger seat and room for the kids in the trunk glovebox.

When you go 8 years without releasing a game or licensing your engine your Ferrari supply dwindles. Doesn't really effect Todd or Carmack, as they get cuts from licensing, but sure will hurt the pockets of everyone else.

Consider they're no longer doing engine licensing, I'm sure things are different now.

They weren't doing engine licensing much in those 8 years.
The licensing I meant was IP licensing.

http://www.1up.com/news/rage-held-xbox-360-limits

"Willits released a statement to clarify his earlier statements. He did admit that instead of having five or six wasteland environments as originally planned, Rage will now only have two because of the Xbox 360's DVD limitations (one wasteland for each Xbox 360 disc). However, these two wastelands will now encompass all the content from the five or six that were originally planned. So no content has technically been "removed" from the game -- but the Xbox 360's storage limitations did cause ID to rethink Rage's entire story structure."

Maybe I'm the only one, but I reading that makes me think Timmy has been hanging out with the PR department too long.

It barely makes any sense; I mean how on earth does changing the story take away 4 discks of material, but no location content?

EA hates paying customers. Why are they removing the DRM?

Reverse psychology: They are hoping that by saying they hate DRM that their customers will INSIST on it, because, you know, anything EA likes is evil.

Speaking of Terra Nova, am I the only one puzzled by the logic of that show's premise? Humans have made the earth unlivable, so the solution is to send humans back to prehistoric times, presumably so they can make the planet uninhabitable even sooner?

Oh, SURE...give away the plot to the series finale, why don't you?
