REALLY shouldn't have bought Wolfenstein. They don't deserve money or respect in any shape or form.

If ZeniMax causes the rift to be delayed or fucks with it's release in *any* way I will never buy a Zenimax published game again. It's that simple.

This, coming from someone who owns almost everything they have released. (just bought the Quakecon 2013 pack on Steam last year)

As the owner of a 1 year 6 month old cat (& general animal lover) that makes me really sad. My condolences for your family's loss.

It's a nice feature, but I wish Steam can finally add support for simultaneous logins of the account on different PCs on the same network. There's absolutely no reason that playing different games bought on a Steam account simultaneously in the same household should need any workarounds.

License restriction should be game-specific (at least on a home network), instead of covering the entire library.

Thankfully DRM-free options are showing up on more and more new releases.


Would there not be concerns for a tunneling program to route local network traffic elsewhere, or to spoof Steam into thinking distant computers are on a user's home network? I could see Valve not wanting to add that kind of feature simply for that possibility alone..

I really want to listen to that soundtrack stream after hearing the trailer music! I probably won't though so I can experience it alongside the game for the first time hearing the tracks..

From the looks of the Destiny footage there, it would appear to have a "theme-park mmo" type thing going on in the background, that you can join in on with other players.. kind of like Guild Wars 2. They even show the rating system after you complete one of the interactions in that video, like the bronze, silver & gold medals in guild wars 2, except you score between 1-3 "flags" or banners depending on how well you do.

I wasn't a fan of the theme-park mmo crap in GW2, it made things kind of hollow really. Hopefully bungie has worked with the mechanic enough to improve on it in destiny.

May One -

"Government has failed us. More than 90% of Americans link that failure to the influence of money in politics.

Yet the politicians ignore this influence. While America founders, they spend endless time with their funders.

These funders hold our democracy hostage. We want to pay the ransom, and get it back.

We’re going to kickstart a SuperPAC big enough to make it possible to win a Congress committed to fundamental reform by 2016.

Or at least we’re going to try."


Lurvely idea but there's no chance in Hell in Congress will ever vote against their own interests.

I donated to MayOne. While it may be a shot in the dark, it's certainly better than doing nothing.

Cool I didnt know you could see the order that you are in backers, mine was #7504

How does this affect being able to play the content? Players are being picked in waves or something with the lower numbers starting first?

I wonder if all these new DayZ customers know how fucked the game is going to be now that the source code has been stolen?

The hacks for this game are going to be ridiculous soon, from what I hear. Arma 3 is probably sitting in the same boat because of how much is shared.

Correct me if I'm wrong.. but I believe this is the first time in 30 years of making street fighter games that Capcom has sold an upgrade to its game instead of charging full price for the game again to attain said upgrade.

Sure you could argue arcade board upgrades but those weren't really consumer upgrades and they cost an order of magnitude more than a typical software addon.

News Comments > Chivalry: Medieval Warfare Free Weekend
2. Re: Chivalry: Medieval Warfare Free Weekend May 15, 2014, 19:55 Mordecai Walfish
 
I was a big fan of chivalry but stopped playing due to poor development and persistent issues since launch.

For example, whenever steam updates the game, the config for the entire thing is reset to default. This has easily happened 10-20 times since I've had chivalry. Most people wouldnt have a problem with this, but I do not use QWERTY so it is *very* annoying to have to reset every single key in the game when it updates. I actually started screenshotting the configs to match them up quickly to the old one and be done with it after an update.. but really, this shit should have been fixed years ago.

As for deadliest warrior, I havent played that, but I hear it has the same inherent issues. Last time I played chivalry I did see 2 new maps though, which is nice considering how many millions they made off this buggy POS. Kind of a slap in the face they even released deadliest warrior without fixing Chivalry first, and even then ignoring it afterwards.

And then there's the updates themselves.. instead of just updating relevant parts, it downloads the whole fucking game every time. What a god damn waste.

Last little bit that put me over the edge is hearing about them selling skins for your ingame character at $8 a pop.

It's overly obvious that they have some fucking terrible devs behind chivalry. Shame too, because the game is quite fun when you get past the bullshit.

Driving with good music is one of my zen places. Completely agree.

I wonder how ridiculously huge of an install this is going to be.

The original install for this thing was fucking massive because of that uncompressed audio.. They could have made an entire single player campaign with that amount of space but decided to use it for uncompressed audio, LOL

I wonder if this DLC includes more of this strange uncompressed audio book they shoveled in with the original release? Hopefully not.

The premium subscription is only if you want to go onto citadel's official "shard" servers. For community servers & shards (of which you get your own to run for the price of purchase) the only thing that you pay is the cost of the game, and you have unlimited access without any subscription.

A more sandbox-like ultima online sounds like a helluva lot of fun to me. I plunked down for the $20 tier.. being an alpha tester & longtime player of ultima online I have a soft spot in my heart for games like this =)

Here's the original Steel Battalion controller. They should have stuck with it instead of trying to make it work with Kinect. I was a huge MechWarrior player back in the day and would have died for a controller like this.

The Mek-Fu is a pretty interesting control interface as well, which I would have been amazing for mechwarrior. The razer artemis looked like a cool concept, but required PGI to produce a decent product with mechwarrior online for razer to actually ship the artemis. As of now MWO looks like a failure, and this one will never see the light of day.

I'm much less happy than you are. 1 console getting its ass kicked is fine when there are two healthy ones. We don't have two healthy ones. We have one DOA, one floundering, and one thriving.

Last generation was pretty ideal, to me. One kind of wasn't playing the same game, and the other two were essentially neck-and-neck worldwide.

I agree that healthy competition is necessary for a truly thriving console market, but Microsoft is now in a position where it is re-thinking the xBox1 platform and realizing that they have alienated their core audience. They need this wakeup call in order to (hopefully) get back on the right track. Just like pretty much everything Microsoft ships, it was somewhat of a disaster that will take them years to clean up.

Who makes your monitor? Mine is an LG, but runs at 60hz, hadn't really heard of any 120 or 144 monitors that were IPS, so I haven't even bothered to look. Also, my machine is designed to stay QUIET, and running a higher max fps means more work. At 60 fps, neither video card has to work very hard, and my framerates very VERY rarely dip below that solid 60.

Altho I think, in the end, the Oculus is going to be deciding what upgrades I need (if any).

So now they have an equally priced console.. but at what true cost? The common perception is that they have a compromised vision now, with less impressive hardware that could easily have matched or surpassed it's rival if they would have invested more into making it a fucking games machine and not a set-top box.

The choice is obvious for PS4 this console generation. Personally, I'm glad to see Microsoft in full panic mode, as the xBox1 ship sinks. They made some terrible choices and thoroughly deserve the criticism and poor sales they are getting in response.

News Comments > Red Dead Redemption Windows Listing Spotted
28. Re: Red Dead Redemption Windows Listing Spotted May 13, 2014, 12:39 Mordecai Walfish
 
Looks like it't not going to happen (big surprise there..)

From the neogaf thread:

"I emailed the Windows Compatibility Centre via the Partner Submission portal yesterday. I asked if Red Dead Redemption was an actual program officially submitted by Rockstar Games or Microsoft. I also asked if its possible to submit an app under a company you have no affiliation with like the Super Mario Bros. X game. I asked them to verify Red Dead Redemption from Rockstar before emailing me back.

This is the response I received this morning:

"My apologies for the mistake.
I have removed this game from the catalog and should possibly get removed from Windows Compatibility Center by 5/13 or latest by 5/14."

That's it. The representative didn't say if it was official or not. Just that's its listing was a mistake. "
