Okay, give me a version that does not require Origin then. I dare you.

Same here. And people want no Internet days for me. OVER MY DEAD BODY! I need it 24/7. Yes, I do Internet when I sleep.

That is the great thing about computers. They can be productive while you are not!

So, people who are paying in Euro get screwed again, eh?
19.99 GBP = 22.83 Euro = 31.43 USD
24.99 Euro = 21.87 GBP = 34.44 USD
29.99 USD = 21.78 Euro = 19.06 GBP
(exchange rates from 13.10.2011, 12:16 UTC+2)

Well, it's not much and who wants to play this game anyway.

I don't think that only applies ot the internet.

Such formatting is actually quite alright and not very difficult to read however that doesn't apply to the internet because you don't really run out of space when you're writing something. The page doesn't end because there's no "page" to begin with.

Didn't you write the exact same thing on RPS? :p
Seriously though, I actually wanted to ask whether it's a one-time payment or a monthly fee. I even read about half of the Terms and Conditions but it wasn't mentioned there explicitly.

Haha yes Im sorry, I wanted to spread the word because I like the game but I was too lazy to type a new comment

It's a one time payment. The idea is that the game is eventually going to be released as a free to play supported with microtransactions (they have some estimate prices on their design doc, it seems affordable enough, like $1 per item or so).
What you get by paying now is early access to game builds and what would basically be modding tools, so you can create custom content and sell it for cash.
According tot he design doc, by buying the tools you are considered a team member and you'll be paid back a bit after release, but Im not entirely sure how this works.

Well, I was aware of that but I didn't know that the final product will have microtransactions and is going to be free to play. That kind of puts a damper on the whole thing, too many f2p games are coming out and I don't think I like the idea where this is going (assuming the things you can buy are more than just cosmetic though, in a racing game, it's a bigger deal than in other types of games).

I just tried this game and lord itís amazing. It uses Shiftís engine, but for some reason it looks way, way better (making it IMO the best looking racing game Iíve seen on PC) and it runs like butter (something Shift 2 didnt).
Thereís all kind of PC style options like being able to hide the wheel and setting individual FOV for each camera.

Iíll admit it though, itís a little abode my driving level, but itís truly fantastic and very promising. Thereís also a really nice selection of cars (some of them classic Formula cars) and they are very detailed (the fully working suspensions, engine parts and texture quality scares me).

This makes me want to get a wheel so bad (yes, I played with an Xbox pad, sue me).
Sorry if I sound overly exited, but all the PC racing sims Iíve tried until now where rather impenetrable and.. well.. dated looking.

Dammit. :/
Screw you, EU! I was kind of looking forward to this although 80 bucks is quite a lot.

[edit]
Not sure if I'd want to spend that much money on it whereas I can just practise on my own.

Stallman explicitly said that he is not glad that Jobs is dead but he's glad that he is gone i.e. that he has no influence on Apple anymore - those are two different things.
And yes, if the head of your company is responsible for such things as workers committing suicide because of the working conditions or closed, draconian systems like virtually all the Apple products then yes - as a vanguard of free software and thus someone who stands against everything Apple does you will be glad.
The catch is that Jobs is probably not the only one who enforced that draconian nature of the Apple products and that his successors will want the same, that's where Stallman may be wrong.

I really don't understand the outrage about Stallman's comment. Again, he never said that he's glad Steve Jobs is dead.
But even if he did: who cares?
Well, a lot of people will care but that can be explained by either their moral views on someone saying "they're glad someone else is gone" or their strong emotional attachment to either Jobs, Apple or their products and you can believe me that if Stallman would die all of a sudden they will gladly say the same about him that he said about Jobs (if I recall correctly some already did, in fact, do that in the comment section of the linked site).

Glorifying someone and not pointing out their errors only because that person is dead is just utterly stupid and counterproductive.

I dont get all of this streamlining, no stats??? Seriously??

JEsus this isnt an action game like Diablo3, its an CRPG. Stats matter. FFS they are the ONLY thing that keeps me interested to keep on playing. Because aside from a few more interesting quests, "go there kill 20 wolves" doesnt really interest me. I want to build the uber hero kick-ass mofo and I need customization to be able to do that.

Here is an appeal to all of you who are thinking about buying/preordering the game on day 1. If you like old-school RPGS that actually have depth. Please dont. Vote with your wallet, guys. Lets actually see if this game is actually a real RPG, before buying.

Worried

Yeah but - I can only actually see that if I really play the game. Sure, I could wait for reviews but I'm kinda psyched, hence the pre-order
Oblivion or Morrowind were, just like Gothic, never real RPGs for me anyway. If I want to play a real RPG I'll fire up Fallout 2 or something like that, Oblivion is more of an action-adventure with RPG elements.
So I'm looking forward to the game though it looks like I won't have much time to play.

Stallman once more demonstrates his complete lack of social skills, and in my opinion is doing the free/open source community a big disservice by being such a childish prick about this. Like the old saying goes, if you don't have anything nice to say... don't say anything at all.

To be fair, though, that's both a childish and a stupid saying.
And if we resort to just parroting platitudes without any form of real discussion think about that one: "To the living we owe respect, but to the dead we owe only the truth."

Moore's law works. The A5 chip in the iPhone4S is running games equivalent to UT2004 in complexity right now.

My 35w Ion2 powered netbook runs Doom 3 faster than the rig I ran it on originally; and, in it's day, the video card alone cost almost twice as much as the entire netbook.

Indeed, Moore's law works. That's why we would have the possibility to make a much more powerful machine. Two years ago Intel demonstrated a 48 core CPU.

I'd gladly give up my 1200w space heater of a PC for something with the same computing power that draws 4watts and is the size of half a brick of soap.

I mean, seriously?

I dunno, I don't think that any modern CPU would get by with so little power. The more computational power you have the more power is needed by the power supply. Which also requires a larger battery.

PCs will always be around and are the work horses. The non-PC are the ease of mobile devices.

Hardly. Why have a giant box if you can have a tiny one?

Just because the PC will go away doesn't mean the monitor and keyboard will, so I don't know why your fear of writing a paper matters.

Because a giant box has more processing power. If you can have huge processing power in something small that means that you will get more if you just make that small box bigger.
If something were to replace the PC it would need to replace the PC's functions and that's not only swappable hardware but the mere ability to install a soundcard, a scsi controller, a dvb-s card and a bunch of other stuff.

A giant box has more processing power for how much longer?
Why do you need swappable hardware? The entire device will be swappable. Why do you need scsi or a soundcard?

You're thinking about a PC still. You're holding on to that concept rather than letting it evolve.

So basically what you're saying is that you can have a device that you can connect to a monitor, a mouse, a power sound system, a tv etc. at will while the device itself is portable?
And even if the processing power evolves to a point where a portable device is as powerful as a PC that would only mean that you could have more of THAT to build a PC that's more powerful than that tablet.

Haha, yeah right.
Somehow everyone says that.
Well, I grant you that Jobs was a clever businessman and had some nifty ideas.
Was he an inventor? Doubtful.

Well, I still pride myself in never having used an Apple product, (I see no use in them, for me) though I use CUPS and it seems to be somewhat related to Apple so even that statement is not entirely true.

I wouldn't go that far...Bethesda STILL has broken quests in FO3 and FO:NV, something which appears to be far more difficult to address than a adding a graphics tweaks menu/configuration file, and getting NV/AMD to clean up their shitty release process....

From a naive point of view I would imagine that fixing quests is easier than tinkering with the fundamental basis of the game e.g. the engine.

The only way it makes sense to develop for a 7 year old console is if you want to reach the widest audience possible and make the most people happy.


Sorry, guys, there are still more Xboxes out there than PCs capable of running Rage. Of course, right now it seems like no PCs are capable of running Rage.

Skyrim will be terrible at launch, too, but Bethesda has far more experience in fixing it up quickly.
Any surprise, now, that Skyrim stuck to its own engine?

Yeah but it wouldn't be a true successor to Oblivion without a terrible launch, now would it - so that is expected.
id is quite a tech-savvy company (or at least was) so it's surprising.
