"Since we develop primarily on PC, you won't see any compromises in the PC version. The key difference between the PC and console versions will be the beauty of graphics"

But that's exactly what's so often wrong with multiplatform games and why PC users feel neglected. The key difference should not be simply taking advantage of the better hardware but having a different control/user interface, save system, menus, modding, open multiplayer…

Simplify all those for a console gamer sitting on the couch far away from a TV screen with no mouse and keyboard at hand, and presto, lousy console port. It's not about the graphics.

I think that the whole control issue is pretty much assumed from that guys point of view. STALKER has left and right lean. Nothing more has to be said.

Don't get me wrong, BC2 is a well made game.

Yeah it's pretty cool, there's already a working PSX emulator. It's rough around the edges but still very neat. I just wish the PS3 had an actual hardware decoder chip for video, the SPE stuff is really confusing and probably means that no one will ever port XBMC to it.

Why do you need a PSX emulator? Mine still runs PSX games just fine. It's PS2 games that don't run.

Windows 7 does have XP mode.

It doesn't support directx does it?

No it doesn't. For kicks I installed 1942 in Windows 7's XP VM and the game wouldn't even start.

But it does in a VMWare image

And I still think BF3 will be BC3 and that DICE will fuck things up again. No modtools, you heard it here.

Uh.. there weren't mod tools out anywhere near launch for Codename Eagle, 1942, BF2, BFV, BF2142, etc. Some of those still do not have official SDKs. Desert Combat was initially created without it.

Seriously, anyone who still uses XP needs to upgrade to 7.

Yeah, well, do all of my old games work on Windows 7 yet? Specifically, my 200-game catalog from Good Ole Games? They are working on backwards compatibility but it's slow going. Call me a Luddite, but I don't think I'll ever be ready to abandon some of the great games of the past.

Anyway, I'm not miffed about this; it had to happen sooner or later with a game I really wanted. I just HATE dual booting.

VMWare is free these days. Create an XP vm to run within Win7 and you'll have full capabilities. Or run Dosbox. Or dual boot. etc

Can someone explain to me why a CG movie like this hasn't been made and released in cinemas yet? Why do studios continue to release CG movies like Despicable Me, Igor, Toy Story, UP, Tangled, Cars, Clone Wars, and so forth? Is there something that is keeping Hollywood from making a film like this trailer?

See "A Scanner Darkly". Animated(rotoscoped) and based on a Philip K Dick dystopian near-future story(which Dick is either the best at, or second best, depending on how you rate William Gibson).

edit:

The other thing you can do is playwatch MGS4.

Screw that. RDR won. It deserved to win. Hands down the best game of the year for me.

Played it. Pretty boring. God of War 3 and Assassins Creed Brotherhood were better games. Kind of funny that RDR won best game but didn't win any best game subcategory

You act as if puzzle-platformers are common. They aren't. First-person shooters, on the other hand, are a dime a dozen. I'll stick with puzzle-platformer Tomb Raider kthx. And that means not copying Uncharted because Uncharted was mostly shooter, whereas TR was mostly platformer.

Based on the leaked info, it sounds like the new TR is stepping away from guns and focusing more on survival, so I predict spears and bows. As long as the focus remains on skill-based platforming and puzzle-solving, I'll be happy.

They did that with Prince of Persia. It sucked.

...am I the only one that wants a Call of Duty like, Indiana Jones themed, double pistol wielding action game? I think it'd be awesome to go FPS movie style game with scripted sequences and over the top action scenes?

It'd be a betrayal of everything this game was about but I don't really want another 3rd person puzzle game as before... Uncharted is too damn good to want a 2nd game that copies it.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, when it's done right. Take Dante's Inferno for instance: reskinned God of War done right. Thoroughly enjoyable game

Step 1: License Naughty Dog/Uncharted engine
Step 2: Build Uncharted with more boobies
Step 3: Profit

No thanks. We have enough shooters as it is. The TR games have always focused on puzzles and platforming and I'm hoping the new game maintains that trend. In fact, I hope they remove combat entirely.

First, the engine is beautiful and renders the environments perfectly for this type of game. Second, while there is a lot of gunplay in Uncharted, it is decidedly an adventure platformer rather than a shooter.

It kind of sounds like a 4 person multiplayer game a-la L4D based on what the basic description is. And for Ghostbusters, that might be pretty cool. Hell, make a Ghostbusters L4D versus mod, might be fun

WoW is only up to its 3rd expansion in 6 years. Everquest has had 17 expansions over a period of 10 years. You can call it milking when WoW gets up to double digits.

EVE has 14 expansions in 7 years.. all of them free. No milk!

Since they ditched unarmored and medium armor skills, maybe in TES5 they'll ditch them altogether and you'll just have one overriding "armor proficiency" skill. I bet the slope-heads would just adore that.
I hope they do so that we can all hear you over-the-top-purists crying and complaining for the next several years, too. Actually, I'd rather you suck it up and stop crying about how the game industry is leaving you behind.

It is possible that an RPG can move forwards and not be held back by RPGs of the past two decades, that in removing complexity in one area that you autistic people obsess and perseverate on ("What? No Unarmored skill? NO MEDIUM ARMOR SKILL? THE GAME IS COMPLETELY RUINED!"), they can spend more time balancing and working on new, more natural complexity elsewhere.

Yes, we all know how much better you aspies think Fallout 1 is than Fallout 3. Try enjoying a game for what it is right now (over what you have arbitrarily decided it should be) for once. Wanna call it an "action/adventure"? A "first person game that pretends to be what I used to love"? Fine - do whatever, just make sure to leave your diatribes over on NMA or your D&D circlejerk boards.

Tell us how you really feel
