See my Avatar? Can't wait for this Grateful Dead game. I don't even care how bad it might be.

What part of a depressed economy are people not getting? We have less money to spend, therefore, less games are going to be bought. With the way the economy has been, I say they came out on top. Lots of people are losing more than 1% of their income.

Activision is going to soak the market with all the CoD games. The sooner this franchise dies, the better.

I was surprised to see that they published Torchlight - I didn't know that.


They only published the BOXED edition in Europe.

As one who plays a druid, and has about 40 buttons I need at any time, there is no way that thing could be functional. There are clearly not enough buttons.

I wonder if they're ever going to honor their "You buy the sp game now, and we'll give you the MMO one for free" promise.

Because I get the strange feeling that they've conveniently forgotten about that.

Creston

I think you are confusing devs, Creston, they never said that. All they ever said was that they are making an MMO. I challenge you to find a source to back up your claims. I DO recall another dev saying that, just not the Torchlight guys. And I did read it here...so maybe I'll just search myself.

The whole "we are not going to sell you the entire game anymore unless you pay us for DLC" is where I stop giving them my money. I will not be buying this game. EVER.

Even if latency wasn't a factor, even if the graphics weren't shitty, I would still never "buy" a game on this service because you actually aren't buying anything.

ever heard of Steam...

installed this last night to give it ago.

couldn't join a game for ages, so started a training mission vs a few other players.

The first tank i run into (literally) destroys my treads so i can't move, i shoot it a few times, and it does no damage cause he's got a much better thank. When he realises I can't hurt him, he keeps ramming into me until i explode.


uninstalled.


yeah i know its beta, but i guess i'm just not into tanks when I can play games that have tanks and soldiers and air units all in one go.

Don't play training mission. Any tank can enter them, and the tier 10 tanks love to come and grief the noobs who have no idea. Its very popular so it takes a while to get into a game the normal way. Just be patient, its worth it.

O wait...you have none....

Interestingly, they don't brag about how much fun their game is, just how many players they can cram onto a server. The gameplay seems little different than a BF1942 mod where everyone drives a tank. Well, except that there is supposed to be 74,536 tanks. But I'm not sure how that's better, exactly.

Play the game. Its not 76,000 tanks. Its like 15 vs 15. Upgrades to your tank and crew. As I stated before, its a great game with beer :D.

Blizzard CEO's stare at the RealTime CashCow© scrolling marquee, and tweak and maintain the wowtard subscription base at peak levels.

It's all good, I just jest.

Mike Morhaime is about as opposite Booby Kotex as you can get. He even still plays on the company softball team with us.

Except that the engine is so full of bugs that was one of the issues they had. They couldn't test all the various video configurations people were using so it crashed on tons of machines. I remember Brad posting that he kind of blamed it on the users because they were using strange hardware configurations that they never thought to test. That just sounds like poor testing to me.

Definitely getting this. Din's Curse is a brilliant game, and the new features in Demon War sound awesome.

Really? Maybe I will try the demo; it looks like Yet Another Diablo Clone, with worse graphics, so I had written it off.

It is a clone. I enjoyed Torchlight much more. And the graphics are horrible. I couldn't get past them even with the good game play. But you should try it and decide for yourself.

Simply put Battlefield was & still is MEANT FOR THE PC.....PERIOD!

Then how do you explain that console players (on both the 360 and ps3) have played twice as much BC2 as PC players?


Because the console players aren't doing the required actions to unlock the maps. Console players just zerg the maps and don't work in teams like they do on the PC. You have to perfom actions on the other players, like first aid, etc. L2P.

Game companies buy name only licenses all the time and create new games from the ground up. It sounds to me like Interplay is complaining they have to make the game from the ground up. It should be fairly easy to determine if they licensed the name only or the assets as well. Of course, I have no idea what the contract looks like, so who knows.

Cite your sources Creston. From what I have read, it prevents Comcast, AT&T et all from throttling your connection, and deciding what content you can and can't see and it also prevents companies from charging for higher speeds. The party of NO is continuing to prove the only interests they have are for the big corporations and not the people.

Ok, I found a rebuttal to my own post. This says the opposite of what I read before. Interesting.
