News Comments > Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs Next Month

I was just thinking about this game yesterday wondering when it would finally be released. At this point they should just spend more time polishing it and release it around Halloween.

Regardless, I am looking forward to it......

Thanks for heads-up on Trent's latest artistry nin. I've already downloaded from Amazon and listening to it as I type this post. His stuff typically takes a while to grow on me, but I’m pretty much liking this out the gate. Wink

I'll never forget reading an article on him in SPIN magazine years ago where the Interviewer asked him about the long span between music CD releases. He admitted and talked about how he discovered and started playing DOOM.

Was just raving yesterday with friends about the awesomeness that was Badger's Star Trek script in the new Breaking Bad.

Yeah, we finally got around to watching it last night, and I was thinking the same thing as to how well done/executed the Star Trek script was. The episode ended pretty intense too....

I've, and others, have posted it before, but it worth another view to bring some humor into this sadness brought on by the new Thief.....

"We won’t be able to make everybody happy,” says Daniel Windfeld Schmidt.

What an F'ing copout jerk-off!!! And then I pretty much 2nd everything Fletch posted.

The more time goes on, the more I see/read bout the new Thief, then more disinterested I've become, which I am pretty much at zero interest now.

Thanks for ruining the franchise (Thief 1 & 2 - DS doesn't count) jerks!!! These F'ing Developers just won't learn and/or don't care, as long as they're making the console money......

HTF do people figure it's cel-shaded?! They need to look at Borderlands, then look at this. Nothing even remotely similar. Cel-shading looks ass-tastic. This looks effing sweet.

hey,Hey,HEY, ease up there man!!! It looked like cell-shading to me, alright. WildOne & Creston have put me back in my place.

Your Avatar does look cel-shaded too now that I look at it.....

Sounds interesting and promising, but they could have done w/o the cel-shading IMO. I'll wait for reviews and some early LPs before pulling the trigger.


See my posts @ #13. Ego says it's not cell-shaded.

@ Creston & WildOne. Thanks dudes, I quiclky skimmed through the posts and missed that.

Two thumbs up for the thumbnails.

In regards to the moderating of the posts, I think you are definitely very lenient and forgiving in order to maintain the ‘freedom of expression’ as much as possible, but there are always people that are going to push/test the boundaries like children do.

I agree with the solution(s) BobBob and SpectralMeat posted, as that would be the best remedy; if there is a post that is pushing the boundaries, you (Blue) wouldn’t have to make that decision to remove it, or just leave it, it would be up to the majority vote of the other readers/posters.

That’s my 11 cents, not 10, but 11.

Who here has played the Alpha & Beta? I am curious how the engine (Real Virtuality 4) runs; is it more refined, or more of a resource hog than the ARMA 2 (Real Virtuality 3), or pretty much the same?

CommunistHamster wrote on Aug 8, 2013, 10:30:
The performance is only slightly worse than Arma 2, but the "feel" of Arma 3 is as much of an improvement over 2 as 2 was over the original Arma.

SpectralMeat wrote on Aug 8, 2013, 10:31:
I've played both Alpha and Beta and the new engine runs a lot smoother and looks a ton better then the old one.
However when you crank all the settings to the max it will make your system crawl.
It is also getting optimized and it seems every patch gets the game run better, while they are adding in new vehicles and weapons.
I think it will be an amazing game, best Arma yet.

Cool. Thanks for info. Gents.

Of course if they update it with smellovision for use with the porn mods, then I'm there!

See Post #36; you'll be preordering yours for sure.

If X supported the OR, I'd be on board. I'm not a big VR fan, but that would probably seal the deal for me

Oh come on Creston, just say it....Snuggle Truck will be the first game you'll play with the Oculus VR. That would be the deal sealer for you; Prez too Wink

@Fion: I couldn't even imagine playing Amnesia: The Dark Descent wearing the Oculus VRs.....I'd have to wear diapers too!

"Technical leadership" is a pretty vague term, eh, as pointed out.

Bethesda's id purchase is now kid of pointless.

Yes it is following the disappointing release of RAGE. But, but, the franchise is still alive. Puke

Agreed; they couldn't have picked a better person as the CTO for this project. John will do wonders for it and I look forward to demoing the retail product next year.

Amazon is the best I must say. I had to return a game one time because the activation key was invalid; they shipped another one that day to arrive in two days, and then eMailed me a UPS label to return the original one where UPS would pick it up from my door step. They made it painless as possible.


I got a bad cd from them last year (last track would skip/not play) and not only did they cover shipping it back, they overnighted a replacement. The overnighting part REALLY surprised me, as it was a Thursday evening when I reported it, and figured (with the weekend coming up) I wouldn't see the replacement cd until Mon or Tues...


Wow, very cool, even better.

Yeah, pretty amazing when you reverse engineer the iPhone (and others I'm sure) and create a knock off and then sell it 60% below market value and screw the whole market up in the process. So amazing....


More like apples selling theirs for 600% above market value, but ya...damn commies!


LOL! Yeah, and there is that too. But you know what I mean.....don't you? Wink
