News Comments > No Stained Steam Keys for Bundle Buyers

Bundles tend to be a good way to get people to buy your game, as it's a great value, and start talking about it somewhere.

I completely agree that bundles are a great way to get your game noticed, even if you take a hit on money made from the number shipped. Tons of people see the bundle mailers and advertisements on gaming sites for them, but I believe a good natural progression for that advertisement is to allow them steam keys too so their friends can see them playing it, and at least check the store page out. A very small fraction of the people who bought the bundle are doing it just for this game, so it's money that wouldn't have made otherwise.. so why not let their friends see them playing it as well?

A great way to help promote your game would be to actually give the steam keys so people can see their friends playing it on steam and maybe get more people to notice it and write reviews on the game via steam too..

Unless they are afraid of people writing reviews or noticing it.. and it does look terrible so I Cant blame them

Aah I've been waiting for this news.. with gtaV coming this fall and new nvidia cards it's definitely going to be upgrade time for me. I need at least a 780ti in performance with 3-4 gigs of ram to keep up with my schedule of doubling performance with each gpu upgrade. Went from 7600 to 8800gt, then sli'd 8800's to a GTX480 that I still have to a 880 or 780ti depending on prices this fall... Gfx ram has to at least double as well, so 880 is likely the ticket unless I can find compelling markdowns on a 780/ti

Glad I looked here first. I was going to grab the mod because I thought it was a compilation mod that does a full overhaul, assembled out of several different ones.

Oh well. That's alright, I'll wait for gta5 at this point.

If/when the website for iCEnhancer comes back up, there's likely links to texture packs and such as well there. Check the GTA modding sites for graphic overhaul guides/packs also to go with it. It's a bit more work than a simple installer to get everything, but shouldn't be too hard if you're really wanting to overhaul GTA4. I recommend the realistic handling mod also, if you're looking to get back into GTA4 and have a better experience with it.

Oh and think about this, if Chris Roberts stated that RSI was working on another game, imagine how much shit he would be getting, this site would explode with vitriol.

That's true, but not wholly relevant to this, as RSI/Star Citizen was kickstarted, and Rust was early access and very much playable upon release, having been built with money earned from Garry's Mod.

When you release youtube videos of your fantastic "mod" and don't give proper credit to all the other mods you used to create said video, people might start being a little upset.

It's also a little deceitful to people watching said videos when you don't disclose that what they're going to download is not what is contained in said videos..

iCEnhancer is really just an ENBseries filter with custom settings by some dude. Yes, they look great in the right instances, but it's not the graphical overhaul that people come into it thinking that it is. That requires hours of seeking out and downloading textures, cars, etc to get anything remotely close to what he shows as "his mod".

I believe that about sums up the source of the negative response he has gotten over this. It would have helped if he could have been a bit more honest in his promotion and execution of this release.

A movie chronicling the excavation of one of the most disappointing moments in gaming I had experienced in my lifetime. There is absolutely nothing about the E.T. videogame that is either nostalgic or charming to me. It is definitely the worst game I have ever played, and the source of many WTF moments and frustration when I was a kid.

I would go so far as to say that I would pay to *not* ever see this movie or the associated video game again, if possible.. it's that bad.

Just gave this a try on the PS3 and it's looking pretty damn, controls are excellent, as to be expected by a bungie game. Looking forward to diving back into this later on in the weekend!

It will take some hands-on time to see if that is truly a viable option, biggest problem being the transition time between the 4 directions and how short the travel time is. That is precisely why a d-pad is ideal for so many fast paced platformers, fighters and classic games

I'd like to see at least some way to have a d-pad on this, as removing it removes any possibility of platformer/classic gaming on this thing.

Maybe have the analog swappable for a d-pad, if done well. The original d-pad looked god awful so hopefully they improve that design too.

No doubt this design comes from testing the controller vs traditional analogs in a variety of games. I'm guessing for racing games especially the analog is wayyy better than the touchpads.

In the past year I have gotten a bunch of free games on Origin. I actually haven't purchased a single one from them yet..

Current free games in my library:

Burnout Paradise, Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit, Battlefield 3, Battlefield 1942, Dead Space, Peggle, Plants Vs Zombies, Simcity 4, Dragon Age: Origins, Mirror's Edge, Crysis, The Saboteur and now The Sims 2 Ultimate

I won't play some of them, but they have been pretty legit about the free games on Origin.

But what about the shareholders man?! You told them there would be a battlefield game every year going forward! How can you possibly earn their trust back now with nothing to show for the holiday season 2104? For shame!

Just for fun I did a little calculation. You would need to kill 27.39726 people per day, every day, for 10 years, ages 8 to 18 in this case, to hit 100,000. Granted, that's not a lot of carnage per day, but it is an awful lot of days.

For the weekly-minded, that's 191.78 a week for 520 consecutive weeks.

I'd like to think that even the laziest of "gamers" can kill 192 virtual enemies in a weeks time, so that number sounds legit to me.

Strangely enough, I've found the best way to "stealth" the bank heist missions is to kill all the civilians that are wandering the streets so they cant walk by and see something suspicious and blow your whole operation. Yeah it takes a toll on the cash earned for the person killing the civs, but if you have the person with the most expendable cash on them take care of this, it doesn't matter as much.

Once you've taken them all out and done so without being caught, you just need to sneak in and prevent the alarms from going off (make sure you crowd control the teller booths and check on the mission intel to see where the alarm button is). If you can subdue all the cops and civilians inside, which is not very hard with everyone coordinating on going in at the same time and spamming shout, and cuffing the cops or shooting them with silencers. If you kill everyone on the street you can also make as much noise as you want to at this point because there is no-one left on the streets to hear the glass breaking, etc.. and you have all the time you want to open every safe box (remember to bring a saw if you can to speed this up immensely and break into those ATM's in the lobby!). This technique can also be used on the mission where you burn the cash but can still break in the safe boxes, but best to master it first on the regular bank missions so you don't potentially screw up the last part of that multi-day mission, which especially sucks on pro missions.

Once you master this you can stealth pro-overkill missions here rather easily and rake in mad loot/exp.

Sounds like some neighborhood gaming group that tried to grow bigger than its small town roots.

Besides, since the NES, who really has thought that PC Gaming attracted more people than consoles? Sure, for a while in the mid-90's at the transition of cartridge to CD-ROM there may have been more for a while (likely due to the cultural phenomenon that was DOOM), but consoles have always been an easier entry point than computers because of their specific focus and simplified controls and attachments to large TV's instead of small monitors while promoting multiplayer much better before the internet came around, as well.

Yeah if he was talking about Games For Windows Live the booing would make sense, but in this context it doesn't

Well one could argue that without xbox/live that the GFWL platform would have been at least a hair better than it turned out.. but I guess it couldnt really have been any worse, could it?

Been using PrecisionX for a while now, but just downloaded Afterburner and will probably stick with that given the background behind Precision that I wasn't aware of before, as well as this current code-stealing fuckery.

So, just because someone claims they used the code it becomes factual? you sound like a women who just cried rape but was never raped and the guy now has to prove his innocence.

The fact is, no ones knows for sure if they did or didn't use his code. Until someone digs into the code and does a side by side comparison to prove it. Then I would suggest you not falsely accuse someone until that fact is proven.

Simmer down Ned, I said that was only one of the reasons I was switching to afterburner, and looking through the examples that the owner of rivatuner gave and what is existant in the new build of precision, it would appear that at least some of his claim is valid, as well as the previously stated fact that I learned more about afterburner and the history of both programs in the process and it is undoubtedly a better program (64bit app support, amongst other things stands out). I don't need to wait for a jury to make the switch, I've already made up my mind, thank you.
