I'm not sure why they passed, it's not like it would be the first time Bethesda made a game you got sick of playing before the damned thing ended.

I don't know who is going to finish the series after Martin passes beyond the wall, but I'm already past caring.

KJA, just to spite you.

Add Subs. Make it cost money or something but add subs.

Ah the Sub... if this were TF2 it would be a combo of the sniper + spy. Hard to NOT consider that an awesome ship.

Honestly, if subs were in there I think the sea would be like 75% subs, and the last 25% spread among the rest.

Well, you either enforce a limit or design around it(WoT already does this to a degree with matchmaking). Also, a WW2 era sub doesn't want to go anywhere near a destroyer

FPS's are where eyefinity shines. The wider field of view makes it more inversive. Unless you've tried it in person, don't knock it. It's spectacular. I don't expect every game to support it, but I do expect it to be done correctly when the devs say it's supported. EA claims the BF3 supports eyefinity. Since Bad Company 2 was a great example of support, I expect BF3 will too.

I'm not knocking it as a feature, just as a balance issue.

The players have three main classes of ships at their disposal:
-Aircraft carriers that provide both naval and air support
-Battleships and heavy cruisers able to scarify the enemy with their looks alone
-Light destroyers with speed and agility as their strongest points



No subs? Now I'm sad.

I've been screwed too many times by devs that say it will have eyefinity support and don't live up to their promise. If I have to edit an ini file, the hud is streached, or the fov never feels right, I don't consider that eyefinity support. Half-Life 2 engine games and Bad Company 2 have worked correctly right for a long time now. When I see reviews where everyone Is playing this game without a hitch, I'll buy it then.
Whats that? Something that hardly anyone has isn't supported? Shock of shocks!

That's what you get for buying into a gimmick.

Bad enough that we have a lot of games even today that do not support widescreen properly (16:10 specifically) let alone this shit.

Yea, no tears over any lack of eyefinity support here. I think it's one thing to have that in an RTS or a game like EVE, but it's not something I would want in an FPS with an unrestricted FOV given the advantage that FOV provides to those few that have it. I'd much rather have real 16:10 resolution support as well. None of this 16:9 shit and none of this commandline crap to run the game(eg BF2).

Anyways, ordered this yesterday because I wanted to get it. RO was fun, if a bit difficult and clunky. RO2 feels more of the same, but looks a bit better. Would be nice to have a map, though, even if it's something to pull up out of game. They had intel maps back in the war. Could be I'm missing something, though.

None of which are comparable to video games. At all.
Music is the only one that has a valid comparison, and that never had a monolith like GameStop.

Retail markets are retail markets. There are nuances, but they can be worked around. For rentals, like I suggested with the PSN idea, there are potentially valid approaches, but the industry has to embrace it first. Once an industry embraces it, it becomes much easier to formulate a solution that works for all parties involved.

As far as used games, it's a used physical device. The same as Amazon selling a used book or a dealership selling a used car.

Quite frankly I just don't give a shit. There is a used market. Developers need to just fucking deal with it.

Creston

I don't know, I agree with you on one hand but on the other you have the people who do the retarded rental flipping stuff that really needs the hammer dropped on it. I don't think there being a used market is necessarily a reality going forward either, the industry is going to kill it in a generation or two at the most.

Embrace the used market. Works for the auto industry, works for books, works for plenty of things. Sony could make a killing doing videogame rentals over PSN like they do with movie rentals. They could still provide revenue to developers with per rental royalties in this case, where they do not generate that type of revenue from physical disc rentals. By doing it in this manner they could also control the property, so that it is harder to copy.

An event for a three year old game? On the most hated "games" service in existence? Sounds like a winner.

Creston

Very strongly disagree with your negative remark about GTA IV here.

It is most likely my favourite video game of all time, and I started on the Atari. Supporting a three year old game is something that most people around here would say that companies never seem to do anymore... yet when they do it, you've got something 'smart' to say about it.

Supporting a three year old game many people adore is all good in my books.

As i'd stated in a previous thread, most Blues posters are extremely negative nancies. Debbie downers, shit disturbers or just outright cynical.

Need to make sure you comprehend the statement before you respond to it. The comment says most hated games service, which GFWL is.

I ordered a physical copy from NewEgg when they had a sale. How many CDs I'm wondering?

Surprised by the low graphic card requirements given how nice Rage looks.

CD's? Probably like 40 lol. Though I doubt it'd come out on CD.

Bluray please

As far as I understand the reasoning, they reckon that Eve players already play Eve so they've got a chunk of the PC market sewn up. Whereas they've got none of the console market so making it PS3 exclusive breaks them nicely into that. Essentially also that they fear a PC release would cannibalise Eve players away from their subscriptions.

Seems to be a ridiculous position to me. I've heard over and over again people who like the idea of Eve but find it's mechanics dry and it's slow burning nature frustrating. I'd be willing to bet there'd not only be every current Eve player buying a copy on the PC, but a ready made market of those who want in to the universe without the spreadsheets.

This is their reasoning.

I also expect it to move to PC eventually after the PS3 goes by the wayside, unless they move it to PS4 of course.

That said, MAG has a semi-persistent universe and does okay. There are MMOs on PS3(and was one or two on PS2 as well).

Amazon's Kindle tablet is a bit too late for what it is, which is a Nook Color clone. B&N embraces the hackers/crackers that want to root the Nook Color, Amazon is generally against such things.

And there are a lot of fans out there who enjoy games like uncharted, right? So you can imagine that genre meets a world-class franchise.

'Cause, you know, Uncharted is practically unheard of!

No, but it is limited to one platform.

So was Final Fantasy.

Is that a joke?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Final_Fantasy

The franchise spans 13 platforms.

Are you dense? Was the iPhone around in 1987?

Until FF13, every game in the series was exclusive to a particular console for extended periods of time. Some were eventually remade or otherwise rereleased much later on other systems.

Of course there are tons of other titles as well. Perhaps you'd like another first party title: Anything Mario
