God Damnit why the f^#$ do they keep making painkiller games that are the same game over and over.. and finally there's another painkiller and it's just a remake ..


I f$@^&ng LOVE painkiller, the sequels were rehashed and the engine and gameplay almost didn't change at all.

Remember when you could run your own server with whatever mods you wanted?

exactly!

Remember when BF 1942 had a full on map editor?! Oh the days when you used to want to buy games with the intent to mod.

I was considering Nexus 7 but it lacks a camera and I read the touch screen has a lot of issues. Is this true?

Yes it lacks the camera, and the touchscreen just isn't as good as my Ipad's screen. Ipad rarely misses on input response, the nexus from time to time feels like a supermarket touch screen with a certain select number of apps. It's excruciatingly awful with those select apps, srsly it's exactly like a laggy supermarket touchscreen at times. Games aren't as fast as the iPad but I'm not fairly comparing the two, they are different demographics, the 7" market has different expectations one should review.

best there is, is impossible in the market of smart phones anymore when screen size comes into play.

So many people love either way, and I always have found my Android devices to be wonderful, the iOS devices always felt way more solid when it came to visual response and FPS. Even my Nexus with Tegra 3 has FPS caps all over, and the menu is really sluggish when the card inside has no problem rendering Unreal Mobile Engine but a menu of icons with text and widgets has sluggish below 24 fps response.

I love both but its really like comparing 60 hz and 120 hz monitors.

Playing a game at 2560x1440 at 120 is night and day.

While the Apple is probably at 60fps, ( my iphone 4 and 4s New Ipad)

my Android ( droid Razr, Nexus7, Transformer ) feels like it's smooth sometimes but then often it just gets sluggish and feels unresponsive, not to say it freezes ( all phones do ) but it just has sluggish performance rendering a set of icons for apps.

Moreso a programming issue I'm sure, but side by side each iOS UI wise is much smoother imo, in terms of FPS. While I feel my Android devices have greater functionality, I'm part of the hobbyist group that demands full fps, without frame limits etc.

Love both, but I think Apples got the right idea with pretty, and smooth. They need bigger screens. Still wish the nexus had a home button , I find it get's really 2nd nature when you're used to the iOS having some semblance of a mechanical button to hold on to hope to a physical connection to the mobo that's mechanical.

I think this may turn into one of those games that's been in development so long that it will only disappoint anyone who plays it.

sadly that demographic always exists, along with user reviews on metacritic "great game, great graphics, great story, but the main hero is lame 0/10"

Hopefully it's not everyone I'm looking up to optimistic blues newsers to welcome it with open arms along with crestons eventual review

Everything looks fine to me, I know what I'm getting with Gearbox, same goes for the BIA series. I always walk away having fun, atleast more fun over complaints.

I just hope with all this physX the game will actually have water that doesn't feel like it's 1996. My suspense of doubt got messed up by suddenly driving a loaded buggy with the girlfriend and I through a body of water and seeing the water just act as a static plane with a spec map shader.

So easy to just add a splash sound, or give your particle animator / FX artist 15 minutes to make a new xEmitter to spawn some sprites on contact with the water surface.

I'm picky moreso cus I'm an FX artist who would gladly donate some vfx grind time towards their project.

huge fan of their aluminium cases. Just can't stand the genius bar, I've only had awful experiences with people that have never built a simple PC case build in their life.

Simply love their cases though. I wouldn't buy macpro cases and mod the mobo plate to accept standard ATX mobo form factor for nothing. Easy wiring can make the hot swap work as well with the storage bays.

No PC case dev have made a nice solid alum case with the same features, albiet I love my CM Stacker which is a beast... just doesn't look nearly as sexy and runs pretty loud.

Hey putting those nets up so their employees can't kill themselves as easily is true innovation...I wonder if they patented that?

Anyone who knows anything about the culture or society knows they would have committed suicide over bad grades and or another job thats been lucrative because some outside Western business owner is raking in on the cheap labor.

Apple is the tip of this iceberg, its just tall poppy syndrome.

Copying doesn't do any good at all.

Unless it's something totally obvious, as a rectangle with a grid of icons mostly is.

Don't get me wrong, I've ragged on the grid of icons as being a ridiculously dull way of having an interface, and would love some true innovation (WP7 is the most innovative alternative to the bland, dead grid of iOS), but c'mon, even Windows 3.1 was a grid of icons.

Purely from a numbers perspective

If it aint broken ( sells well ) then don't innovate it? ( win 8?)

I made a start on CoH recently but just didn't get into it like I thought after all the raving.

Game seemed fun but overly scripted, which is a bit bleh in itself but it was really bad at hinting. There was a couple of times I thought I screwed up so restarted, thinking bloody hell this is hard, only to find out I was supposed to lose that bit.

There was other bits of bad scripting and communication too. Like some levels you were supposed to say rescue some troops, then come back build a base, then after a bit you get attacked. But stray slightly too far north when rescuing the troops and you trigger the assault immediately.

Also,the population caps were always bloody annoying. Tons of resources and tons of units - but only if you keep getting them killed!

Easily COH is strongest in coop with friends. I love COH because you can go against a player with a huge rush force pulling a Starcraft and then if you just happens to have two or three really cleverly placed counter units, you can turn the entire game around. I also like that it's not such a rush style game, I love me some CoH-cane

Nice cabling work. Dude's going to shit if he ever has to replace one, though...

Creston

Dude is either an outside contractor or its an intern or undergrad. If its a contractor I'm sure he would love for a cable to die. I bet they make a good amount doing do. You can just look at the amount of cables and know if it's a paid job it must pay well.

This man has become the britney Spears of gaming, gone nuts with his bald head and now he's making heap after heap of "next age / the future of games and interaction crap.

We won't understand how revolutionary Milo is until an army of Milos comes marching down the street, swiftly punching the heads off of the first innocent people caught in his new army of revolutionary games. The police arrive to the call only to get a their squad car thrown at them and before they know it the army of milos have now stolen some of the police mans weapons.

Cut to Warren Spector cleaning his deus ex GEP gun in his lab.

"Sir..?"


"Yes Gaben my assistant?"

"It's Molyneux sir.. He's done it again, he's revolutionized again."


*GEP gun chamber loading silences the ambiance of the lab*

"I'll handle it.. once and for all.... Gaben, is the Metacriticmobile gassed and ready?"

"Yes Sir"

"its time we stop his inventions before they stop us from living... and we'll take out his cube of duty while we're at it."

ah forgive me, I've been doing maya fluid simulations for work non stop with little sleep.. I can dream though.

My Retina MBP went from 4 hours playing games on the Intel GMA 4000 (diablo 3, classic unreal titles, select new games) to 8 hours of battery life after the update.

I still only get 2.5 to 3 hours playing skyrim in windows at 2k plus resolutions but that's because the Nvidia 650M is forced under windows

You can thank Sony and other record labels, you think apples the worst till you realize MPAA and RIAA aren't just profiting off death, they are literally putting time and resources into containing our Internet with their guidelines while paying off the senators we have voted into power based on trust.

You're not fooling me with anti apple rhetoric, this be the labels and the labels can make big changes with iTunes or amazon etc.

We don't have to love apple but we definitely shouldn't love Large record labels
