I am a friend of someone who recently got sacked from RockStar North for general misconduct. Because one contract to RockStar covered everything, including secrecy, and his contractual obligaton was now removed, he was legally allowed to spill the beans on Rockstar's upcoming GTA V.

Really? I can't imagine any industry giving someone a contract that said "You can't steal any of our ideas until such a time as you no longer work for us."

Yeah. I don't buy any of that. Sounds like a bunch of wishful thinking bullshit from a whiny fan to me.

WOW no Skyrim...everyone in the world must have a copy by now..LOL!

Not me, still waiting for a good sale. And when it does go on sale, it will shoot way up again in the steam charts.

It's been $60 pretty much ever since it came out and it WAS at the top of the charts week after week, forever.

Nope. The world is too big to care. Every man for himself. The only people keeping this world "in check", are Christians. But once they're gone, the world will fall.

You're all just a name and number.

On the contrary. A vast portion of this world's problems are DUE to christians and other religious zealots. Once they die off, the world will be so much better without all the hatred, willful ignorance, and bigotry.

Politicians care about politics. It's their job on the line. They haven't cared about America for the past fifty years.

Just a bunch of old guys who don't understand anything, pointing at all the young whippersnappers going "look at these unruly punk kids with their loose morals! Let's pass some laws to make them boring like us!"

I assumed that is it, yes. Although once I got back, there were no credits, and I assumed they expected you to clean out your quest log, and keep exploring. Which is fine. I had a blast, and ended up at level 25 after about 80-85 hours.

I'll go back eventually, but after 2-3 hours a night for the past month, I'm ready for a little air.


Jesus christ. Is that all? Why do people like to blow through games like this? I doubt I'm even halfway through the main quest, level 44, and 196 hours played. I'm still constantly finding new things and discovering new quests.

It was half the length of Portal 1, but I guess the puzzles were a little more fun.

It was twice the length of Portal 1 without even factoring in coop.

Felt WAY shorter to me. I beat it in like 5 hours, and that was with exploring.

What's the big deal with Portal 2? I thought it was "okay," but certainly not the best game. It was half the length of Portal 1, but I guess the puzzles were a little more fun. The slime things they introduced are a little cheesy though, I think.

I played it through once, then played maybe an hour of multiplayer. It certainly didn't impress me the way the first Portal did since it was such a novel concept.

And what the hell happened to the DLC they were gonna be doing for it?

Dear EA,

FIX YOUR FUCKING STEAMING PILE OF SHIT BEFORE TRYING TO ADD MORE SHIT TO THE PILE. EVEN FLIES CAN GET TOO MUCH SHIT.

Thank you.

Am I the only person who is a BF player since 42 that gets enjoyment out of BF3? I do only play in less populated servers, so maybe thats it.. but I swear the game is pretty fun, I can still C4 vehicles and it's not nearly as asinine as COD.

I'm not saying its perfect in balance esp with USAS frags, but honestly I hated playing in CS servers with banned AWPS, if a weapons unbalanced then let it be, it adds flavor. It's like paintballing and complaining that some kid has a really nice gun.

I was in no way referring to the gameplay. It is indeed fun, if you can get it working correctly.

I play on PC, and it's full of bugs. 90% of the time, on first launch, it will crash, and the server browser reports some random unknown error occurred. Okay, so I have to launch it again... And every time I launch it, I still have to click the game's icon from the fucking task bar to get it maximize. Why? Why doesn't it just launch fullscreen?

And why the fuck does the server browser need to be in my web browser? Why can't it work like Steam, where everything is fully-integrated?

I was playing yesterday, and I died right as I was being revived. When I respawn, I can only use my pistol, w doesn't work, nor does sprint, so I can't move forward, I can only walk backwards and side to side. At first, I thought my keyboard was fucking up, since it's a wireless keyboard, and I figured the battery was dying. But I also couldn't ironsight with my right mouse button. I died, and when I come back, everything's fine again. Fun bug, that.

There are other bugs that sometimes cause the game to crash, and it gives a weird error like "disconnected from EA" or "an error has occurred" ... yeah, no shit. The error is EA published this fucking steaming pile.

Sure, it's extremely fun once it starts working correctly, and I usually don't have issues once it does, but every bug this game has is a serious, game-breaking one. It's not like minor shit you can overlook like, oh look, that texture is flickering. No, they're really major bugs, and it's frustrating as all hell that EA is paying no attention to them, and instead releasing more pay to play garbage without fixing the main framework first. There is NO WAY they don't know about these issues, they just choose to ignore them because they don't care about the PC market.

Yeah, those crazy, mixed up French-Canadians.

Did you know France always runs from a fight? It's true! I bet they also run from an opportunity, and take all that fan-driven money with them.

You're probably right. This will never happen. Damn Frenchies. >:O

I don't care what anyone says, this was a scumbag move from Bethesda.

And it was an even stupider move of Notch to even try and fight over this. The last thing he needs is an expensive legal battle (even if he's 100% in the right).

Not having the trademark means that anyone else can come up with a game called scrolls too if they like, so it would have been better to choose a name he could trademark.

And not only that, but trying to push yet another digital Collectible Card Game in an already saturated market, wasn't the best call either. He's spreading his company too thin with too many projects at once that aren't minecraft related (minecraft is a very successful IP for him, but if he doesn't exploit it, it doesn't do him much good in the future).

IANAL

Dude, you think he fucking cares? He's richer than God. Chump change to him.

Yeah if you are getting pink textures it means a texture is missing.

It is also caused by someone not having enough RAM or VRAM.

I haven't had any problems or slowdowns and the pack looks amazing and beats the so called "HD" packs on Nexus.

That used to happen when the game was running out of RAM before the LAA patch and you weren't using the 4gb loader. The texture doesn't fit in memory, so the object just has a solid color and bump map.

Did you actually LOAD the esps? Trust me, there's TONS of texture difference all over. They touched a little over a quarter of all textures in the entire game, and especially weapons and armor have been pretty heavily upgraded. (in some cases weapons have been quadrupled.)

Yep. Haven't noticed anything different.

Is that what's happening, or is it just a case of the bsa overriding everything in the "data" folder?

Though now that I think about it, that's exactly the opposite of the way that Bethesda's games normally work... Hmmm, weird. Don't know why Beth would deliberately break a ton of texture mods that way...

Creston
That's happening as far as I understand from texture and nif modders. There's a two way flagging system that allows you to flag your textures high or low res. High res will always get priority in loading as long as the associated ESP is loaded, and it can find the BSA. Otherwise it will default to loose files, or to the specified bsa.

I work more so in the scripting area, but in the closed modder forums that I frequent there's no shortage of grumbling over it.

But those flags are happening on a per-texture basis, right? Or is it more general than that?

Btw, for those interested about the High-Res pack:

1) I've lost literally 0% performance in using it. (In fact, I hadn't even played with 1.4 yet, so the whole game runs even smoother than it already used to.)

2) Certain things have definitely gotten a lot nicer. Clothes, armors and weapons certainly. Immediately noticeable were all the food textures, which have been massively upgraded (tomatoes are REALLY pretty now). Some rock textures were upgraded, and they improved the fauna quite a bit (though to be fair, it looks like they just took Vurt's work and copied it...)

Whiterun looks pretty nice now, they did a lot of work on the roof and beam textures, it looks very crisp now. They altered probably 60-70%, if I had to guess, of the wooden textures.

Other things, however, are still the same low rez stuff. I didn't expect them to improve every texture, but the "snowy rock" still looks horrendously shitty, the snow itself is still shit, and most tables are still pretty poor as well. All in all I'd say use this texture pack and keep using all the 3rd party ones as well, but of course I don't know how that flag Mashiki was talking about affects them. I'll fire some of them up tonight and see what happens.

As for Steam workshop being "the future of modding" ... it's basically a direct copy of the Nexus sites. The only thing it does better than Nexus is auto-updating. (which I will admit is a seriously cool feature.)

Edit : I could have saved myself the trouble of typing all this out. Hehe.

Oh well.

Yes. LCD technology is a step backward from the days when we could go much, much higher, with way better color accuracy and higher refresh rates. I play on a 24" widescreen CRT (Sony FW-900) at 2304x1440 and I don't have to enable stupid vsync.

p.s. Like a few others here, I run the game via HDMI to my HDTV and it looks great and the couch is comfy. You also gain the benefit of running at native 720P, which puts less work on your PC's GPU if you have a 24 inch LCD display like I do that runs native at 1920x1200.
Why would any gamer want to run ANY game at 720p? I have a 42" LED HDTV hooked up to my computer and it's 1080p (like most are), so only slightly lower resolution than my desktop monitor - performance isn't any different, it just means that if I'm not feeling particularly motivated I'll grab my X360 controller and lay back.

If I wanted my games to look like crap I'd buy a console.

Bothy 720 and 1080 are pretty fucking low res. I don't know how anybody handles it. :\
