News Comments > Deus Ex: Human Revolution Reviews
7. Re: Deus Ex: Human Revolution Reviews Aug 22, 2011, 14:49 Dirwulf
 

I need to stop reading these reviews. They are making me jones. I'm going to try to sleep for a few hours before midnight so I can play as long as possible when its released. I'm on vacation for the rest of the week :). I've avoided all videos so far. I don't want to know ANYTHING before I play. I know a lot of people didn't like Alpha Protocol. I thought that game rocked. DEHR seems very similar to me.

12 hours and 15 minutes...

You'd think the TF2 items would be for pre-orders through steam... except when I put in my serial key to add in my deus ex pre-order, it said I was going to get the 8 TF2 items on the preload screen.

So like I said, can anyone confirm receiving the TF2 items with a preorder of any type? (such as through steam).

Because I'm going to complain to valve about not getting my promised items.

I did not get the TF2 items. I ordered from GMG. I did not expect to get them because the page clearly states pre-order the game on Steam to get the items. With the new inventory feature on Steam, I can see my friend who pre-ordered on Steam does have the TF2 items.

If you pre-order from Steam, yes. I've heard pre-orders from other sources can't put their keys into Steam yet and thus don't have the items.

You'd be wrong about that. All keys from other places are working for pre-load. The TF2 items are if you pre orderd on STEAM only, as far as I can tell.

That's trippy, I already saw this video and for some reason I thought I saw it here. Guess not. I can see on you tube the video I saw on the right side, and its the exact same footage.

Dude, take a couple of days off.

Anyone else been following the West Memphis 3? I've read a bit here and there over the last few years, and it sounds like today should be a major announcement.

They are gettin' out! But the settlement is kind of weird, because they are not going to be exonerated, just released.

News Comments > From Dust DRM Dust Up - Refunds Offered? [Updated]
8. Re: From Dust DRM Dust Up - Refunds Offered? Aug 18, 2011, 22:39 Dirwulf
 

I'm guessing it really was just an internal communication problem, as in someone told someone else something wrong, and they passed on the incorrect information. But Ubi has put themselves in a position that no one will believe them no matter what the truth is.

I bought the game on Xbox before all this went down. Its too bad they fucked up the PC version, because its a pretty good game. Its not really made for a controller though. I would have loved to have seen it on PC. Maybe in 6 months when they remove the DRM and its on a Steam sale for $5.

Road Rash I'm not so sure about anymore, we have plenty of that style of game these days.

Where? I want to play. I haven't seen any motorcycle racing/combat games SINCE Road Rash. That game made me buy a Genesis.

What they need to revive, but never will is Buck Rogers: Countdown to Doomsday!!

So if a game isn't popular, then always on DRM doesn't matter? So it only matters if it affects you and not gamers in general? Where is the nerd rage? I smell selectivity in your arguments.

It's hard for people to rage about something they have no awareness of. It's a pretty simple concept to understand. Most people have no idea what Darkspore is in the first place. Generally speaking when you have some awareness involved then people will react, whether they do it one way or another is based on multiple factors. I smell troll in your posts.

So you have no awareness of always on DRM? That's what I'm talking about. I just used another game as an example. So I'll ask again, are you arguing against always on DRM, or always on DRM in Diablo 3, and you don't really care how if affects other games?

To elaborate on Verno's point, people only say "I'm not buying that game because of X" if they previously intended to buy the game. While there may have been one or two people who mentioned they were, by and large, I didn't see people claiming to have any interest in it at all.

So if a game isn't popular, then always on DRM doesn't matter? So it only matters if it affects you and not gamers in general? Where is the nerd rage? I smell selectivity in your arguments.

I also want to point out the game Darkspore, which I own. I'm not sure what the sales of that game were/are, but it is a single player/multiplayer game that requires a constant connection. I never saw anyone complain about that for that game. Probably because its not Diablo 3. Not one person here said, "I'm not buying that game because it requires an constant connection."

Most people who tried it and said they didn't care for the game, or they bought it, but no complaining about the always on connection.

Because the code that actually runs the game will not be available, it would take the creation and distribution of something like an MMO free server in order to play the game offline, and for a fast paced game with complex mechanics, I doubt you're going to see that pulled off anytime soon.

People reverse engineered most of the functionality of the old battle.net, it's certainly possible albeit time consuming. What's more difficult is going to be figuring out character file formats as Blizzard will almost certainly obfuscate that to hell and back. It'll have to come after the former too.

And they got sued and lost and Blizzard took over their domain, although its allegedly being used in other countries. I don't know why you'd want to waste you time, though, except maybe as an exercise or learning experience. Blizzard WILL shut you down, if they can.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bnetd

Also, I think this open letter is pretty pretentious. Its not like Mike hasn't been doing this for 20 years. I would say he knows what he is doing, and after all the dust settles, nothing is going to change from all the complaints. This has been planned for a very long time, and they are not going to reverse this decision.

Also, I will once again point out that the number of people complaining are, unfortunately, in the minority. Most of the people who will be buying D3, won't know, or won't care about the always on connection. Most of the people who play Blizzard games are used to this by now anyway, even with the offline mode of SC2.

This is going to be the future of gaming. I don't necessarily like it, but this is where everyone is going to go. Its just a fact. You, as a gamer, may not like it, but it makes business sense in the end. Even with the "lost" sales. Corporations don't live in your reality. They live in red and black.

Also, Bridenbecker already said this had nothing to do with piracy. I'll let you decide if you want to believe that or not.

There is no way this movie is going to be better than one with Arnold and James Earl Jones. Or Mako. Or Max Van Sydow. Or Sandahl Bergman. All these reboots just proves that Hollywood ran out of original ideas a loooooooooong time ago.

I am not embarrassed to admit it. I LOVED DAII, I played through it twice and I will play it at least one more time as a mage, for that story line.

I liked it better than DAO, as a matter of fact.

I am willing to bet that 99% of the people on Blues never even played the game, much less played through it, they just like to spew hate and vitriol.
