Other than Sims Medieval, there's not a recent mainstream game on the list. Which kinda cements Impulse as a niche market in my mind. It'll be interesting to see if Gamestop can change that at all - although if the indie devs abandon them and they can't get sales on mainstream games, they'll be pretty damn screwed.

All RTS gamers know what Sins is(and most own it already I imagine), most PC gamers know what Dawn of War is, and most PC gamers and FPS playing consolers know what Crysis is.

Pisses me off that the Dungeon Siege you get is singple player only. I'd love to get them to play coop with my family, but nooooo. The games are ancient, why the fuck do they need to be restricted?

Get out of cash and put it into commodities. The value of paper money is dropping. Look at what silver has done lately. This is what bailouts and 'stimulus' pork projects do to a currency (ruin it!).


Well, he's not American, so I doubt he's invested in the US dollar. You pay for the game in Euros(or was it pound sterling?)

Indie games are fine and all, but people want a major release. Which pc gaming barely has. If pc gaming during a resurgence just means more indie games..pc gaming will never be dead but it's glory days are long past.

Every release from Valve, Relic, and Blizzard begs to differ, at least. Problem is that Valve and Blizzard put out a game per decade

They're also all multi-platform developers now.

With the PC being the lead, or only release such as the case for Starcraft 2, WoW, Company of Heroes series, Dawn of War series, etc.

What I find interesting is all the gaming sites, the comments are about how awesome the first was. Where was this great support then? That said, it's always good to release a new game that has good memories associated to it, builds momentum.

It left when Core Combat ruined it

Just as long as the Soviet Bloc developers keep putting out awesome shit, I don't care. Companies like Epic, Zenimax/id, etc put out meh PC games these days.

As far as resurgence, PCs completely outclass consoles in hardware capabilities currently. The gaming devs I know like to stay on the cutting edge, and that cutting edge is currently on the PC, particularly if the dev values freedom and (as mentioned) flexible ways to get customers.

My money is on Left 4 Dead III.

No, they can't go down that route because there is a limit to how many games they can develop in a series before putting it in perpetual development. Next announcement will be Left4ChicagoTed, starring that guy from the NM5 wall

This game looks and sounds better every time they release more info about it; I just hope it survives the possible PS3/Xbox360 release consolization effect on the PC.


Well, it's an indie. The sequel will be consolized after it is a rousing success on the PC, like STALKER(after years of patching out bugs, of course). The fact that this plays into a genre that's had only one competitor on consoles in recent years but has been pretty successful in the past(Virtual-On, Armored Core) I do think that a console version will come eventually. That said, Armored Core had about as much customization and mildly complex controls as you could expect from an arcadey mech game, which is what this game looks like. Essentially, it's what BF1942 was to mil-sims.

While I love the look and sounds, it feels just a wee bit twitchy for giant mechs boogying around and getting it on. I hope their maps/environemts are quite varied, however.



You've never heard of Shogo? Farking best mech combat ever, and twitchy as all hell.

/Red riot, spider mines, farking giant katana, and, best of all, grapple

edit: Video reminds me of Armored Core with a much more badass environment. Kind of like FF7 cities + Armored Core combat

I remember playing Desert Combat with a purported Marine helo pilot. I was trying to "teach" her to pilot them in the game, which she insisted was more difficult than in reality.

You should have had her try the helicopter in Codename Eagle. Now that was a trip

Got a wireless "gaming" mouse with my last computer 6 years ago. What a worthless piece of crap. I dug up an old, wired, non-optical mouse with the rubber ball and have been using it ever since. I'd like to switch to a modern one - it only has two buttons and no scroll wheel and there are a couple of games where that comes in handy. Get this, in Crysis and FarCry you need a mouse wheel to zoom in with the sniper scope. So I continued to use the old fashioned mouse but got out my worthless wireless gaming mouse and set it on the desk. When I needed to zoom I reached over and used the mouse wheel on that. That's pretty lame but it actually worked pretty well. But I swear I can't find a decent mouse that fits in your hand and doesn't weigh a ton and doesn't have a bajillion buttons all along the edges that you constantly keep clicking by accident.

Logitech M100, M110, etc.
Razer Spectre

I hate the mouse wheel too since my disabled hands' fingers do not work with them well. I also prefer big mice with two/three buttons.

No mouse wheel? Best non-mousewheel mouse ever made was the Wingman Gaming Mouse. Hard to find, but one of the greatest mice ever.

Most people who bash CoD never even played the freakin' game, so don't listen to the naysayers.

The modern ones are fun single, but the multi is ass. The stupid killstreak bonuses, the nade spam, etc. The consolization of the game has harmed the playability of it. It's fine that it's not old-school tactical rainbow 6, but it would be better with a bit more CS flair, more dependent on gunskill than what upgrades you have and your killstreak bonuses.

How is this IP a good fit for a MMO of any kind or even a video game???? It's a great series because it's different and is not a action based narrative. It's politics and intrigue.

Game of Thrones - Living Card Game by Fantasy Flight is an awesome game that feels like you are playing a game based on the series. If you haven't given it a try head down to Barnes and Nobles and buy the core set. It's $40 and plays great. Any action based game would not be this series.

Personally, this would be great for an RTS(Total War type of course). You have a very well defined map, you have defined kingdoms with particular skills/resources, etc.

As far as an RPG, an RPG that follows the story will be boring, but an RPG that occurs within the rich world will not be. Similar to KOTOR, set an RPG within a well defined and vibrant world and you have the basis for building a winner.

I think it's supposed to be a comment on the lowest common denominator. They'll fight the countless ground battles while the PC players run the galactic empire and reap the wealth

Would you trust a bunch of random teabagging dumbasses on a mission that might effect what you're doing in game, particularly since Eve can punish players very effectively if they overreach or make mistakes?

The old commander/players hybrid RTS/FPS concept works great if both teams do what they're told. Like playing an RTS where the units just wander off mission whenever they feel like it..

It's not a commander from what I understand. You're contracting with people(on consoles) to fight for resource control of a planet. Mix of Planetside and MAG, with locations varying on where there are conflicts. I imagine the real interaction with people will probably be minimal in game if at all, just a posting on a list

Which is why adults play EVE instead of WoW. We leave WoW to the kids who are bored with their 360s

You can play EVE for 1 hr a day? I've always thought that EVE was an even bigger timesink and waste of your life than WOW.

Sure you can play EVE for an hour a day. One of the biggest benefits of EVE is that character advancement occurs whether or not you're logged on(as long as you queue it up). Same goes for manufacturing(crafting), buying/selling(you can place standing market orders that sit for hours/days/weeks/months), and other things. The actual business of fighting can take as long as you want. If you want to earn some cash mining or mission running or killing pirates(ratting) or PVPing, you can do all of that in an hours span of time.
