Wow, time can really play tricks on the memory. I never would have guessed off the top of my head that there has been 6 years between each generation.

The PS1 only came out in Japan in 1994 - it was released in the US in 1995 (after the SNES was released in 1990 and 1991 in those regions), and the PS3 was often considered to be released a year late in the current generation, as the Wii and Xbox 360 both came out in 2005.

And the PS3 clearly outclasses the Wii and generally outpaces the 360 in performance. Late for the generation, but not suffering for it hardware wise.

Console gaming isn't dying...it's just 3 years past due date on current hardware. They wanted to stretch this generation for the sake of $$ and this is what you get. No shit sales are down people don't want to be bothered with 10 year old technology.

3 years past due? Not yet. The last few iterations have been just as long.

PSX - 1994
PS2 - 2000
PS3 - 2006

Some of the console defining games for PS2 and PSX were released at or after the release date of the next console. Currently on track for a 2014 release for PS4/Xbox720, so you're looking at 2 years longer than the average cycle, not already 3 years past due.

"Yeah, the whole mecha thing is cool, the graphics are decent... But playing it was like "just deathmatch? come on!"

The Mech visuals are very cool. Sweet incockpit view. But you play it, and all of a sudden being in a Mech is a moot point. Totally unrealistic arcade sidestrafe movements. The list goes on.

If they wanted to make a Quaker, why put everyone in a Mech????? Aaaah well, I am sure someone will dig that kinda thing.

Because you think the only game influences are MechWarrior and UltraBots. Realistically, the influences are Virtua-On and Armored Core.

I wouldn't say excellent, but pretty good at making a good story out of someone else's work, far better than fanfic quality. I guess they're excellent for licensed content.

Also, now that they're dead, I wonder if they'll release the source and let the modding community clean it up.
Read above, they answered that question.

Also, have you ever known that to happen? A failed studio releasing source? All the source releasing stuff I can think of were from studios that still existed, such as id releasing source for older games.

Vampire the Masquerade Bloodlines/Troika Games.. been community supported basically for 7 years

lol. GameMaker: Studio has Steam Achievements! WTF?
That's not so uncommon for developer apps There are achievement plugins / extensions for Visual Studio and Eclipse (that I know of). We developers want to have some fun during coding too

Achievement Unlocked:

Is this game seriously threaded or something? In general, game performance seems to be better with Phenoms rather than Bulldozers because of better single core performance, which makes their high performance suggestion kind of odd

lol this whole 'f2p' thing is becoming painful to watch. It's like they figured out they can make MORE than the regular price of a game ($50-$60) and watching them trip over their own tongues to justify it just hurts.

Sell your fucking game for $20 if you really want to attract people, or just charge a regular price and take the risk(the risk that your game is actually worth playing and paying for...). OR JUST FUCK OFF ALREADY!

F2P has become the deception to the MMOification of the gaming world.

If a company is hosting the servers because of persistence, monetary input is required. The constant kind.

I don't find the price performance ratio that different at all, in fact I see better price performance with Intel right now. I'll have to drum up some links where they make plot graphs showing this. AMD is all well below right now.

I'd actually like to see such comparisons - it would give me a reason to try Intel cpu's. If the bang for the buck is indeed on Intel's side, it's news to me and I thank you for bringing it to my attention.

The i2500K, because of its absurd overclocking abilities, currently just destroys any other processor on the planet, AMD and Intel alike, if you're talking about bang for the buck. I'm pretty sure that basically any processor comparison article will tell you so.

Creston

One of the bigger "hidden" costs that is overlooked occasionally is the price of Intel chipset mobos. You can get AM3+ mobos from Asus and such with USB3/FW2/SATA3 that are SLI/Crossfire ready(that is 2 or more higher bandwidth PCIe slots) for under $100. It's a bit harder to find similarly apportioned boards of similar quality for Intel chipsets at that price(plus there's the whole myriad of chipsets you have to deal with, but that's another story.. upgrade paths aren't necessarily included in cost equations).

the underlying issue is that the intel 4000 GPU encroaches upon dedicated GPU's for the first time for real in 20 years. Manufacturers are happy with the simplicity of an integrated GPU on laptops. And desktop sales contune downward. Not a great time for either nvidia or AMD.

Obviously the 4000 will never, ever, touch what a $200 GPU can do but the functionality of the 4000 is power conservative and cheap to manufacture and it handles all directx TandL calls, etc.

Do AMD APUs not exist in your world?
