50 years from now Dragon's lair is STILL going to be offered on every new device/distribution platform.


And I'll still be alive and kicking, reminding myself that even back in the 80's I kept trying to convince myself that it was a cool game.


I remember first seeing Dragon's Lair and thinking it was so badass. Playing it now just feels so cheap given it's simply a cartoon driven by quick time events..

I'm a little ashamed to say I'd buy Dragon's Lair, provided the video quality was good, as I've not played in upwards of 30 years.

If nostalgia is really hitting you that hard for this one.. heres all 22 minutes of animation from the game, including all death scenes, in order:

Much more fun to watch than to play through, IMO =)

And dare i say Gabe and his Steam portal need to grow a pair and stop allowing this 3rd party bullshit through their ALREADY PROVIDED DRM SERVICE.

I don't see what real difference it makes, you're already using DRM enriched Steam, it's not like Uplay is resource intensive. PC Gamers: BOO UBISOFT DRM! same breath oooo I'll buy <insert title here> on steam and play that!

Because everyone should bask in the utter convenience of using multiple frontends/DRM clusterfucks to be a true PC Gamer!

For the new av-test.org results it appears that for paid antivirus, BitDefender is currently at the top of the pack.

For free antivirus it would appear that Avast! is #1 currently, with Avira having dropped considerably since the last round.

Their website is getting pounded currently, but they are one of the only resources I really trust for AV benchmarks.

A buddy of mine had to crack the game to get *his legit copy* working correctly because of UPlay fuckery.

UBI is killing themselves & I don't think they even realize it.

The fact that nintendo won the console wars

It seems like MS was the winner to me. No doubt the Wii had it's wild fire moments, but no legs, too many old bitties bought it only for bowling.

MS imo has the market lead now, Live being the main reason why.

That said, I'm out of consoles unless they do something amazing in the control dept.


Agreed, this is *exactly* why MS was the winner:

More than 40 million of the 70 million Xbox 360 customers also have Xbox Live online subscriptions

Sorry, selling more consoles does not make you automatically "win" anymore.

I'm sorry I wasted money on Chivalry. While I enjoyed some of the first Warband game I thought this would be at least as decent, but couldn't even get through the tutorials before i turned it off.

Hmm I was thinking about picking it up, what were the main turn offs if you don't mind me asking?

I was also considering this one, as I really do enjoy good melee combat games like PVK2 =).. whats the deal with this one that makes it not-even-finish-the-tutorial worthy?

I just can't get into this. I hate having to start each match trying to get groups setup, no flush system, and honestly 3rd person view (yeah I suck but I'm horrible at keeping the legs/torso in sync to actually function).

Trying to get groups set up? You mean weapons groups or groups of players? The limit is 4 it's not that hard.. just go on the C3 dropship channels and look for players, it's usually a really quick process.. and if you don't find one immediately just sit yourself in one of the channels and play a couple rounds while you're waiting.

Alignment of legs/torso can be easily discovered via the HUD, just takes getting used to.

Learning to control heat levels is the trickiest part, and effective use of override takes practice, but is rewarding after you learn the ropes.

Weapon Groups. If there is a way to do them in the mechlab I haven't figured it out yet, then again I haven't spent much time with MWO.
Also I highly hate the mechlab. Give me the old 2d design instead of clicking on a section of the mech and having it zoom in then fighting to get to the whole mech.

Rather have the Mechwarrior 4 series updated to a newer graphics engine.

Oh, those are a 1 time setup. You'll only ever have to mess with them again if you want to change something later on down the road. I agree they should have the ability to set them in the mechlab and I would assume that feature will be in at some point, as it just makes sense. Either that or setting up weapons groups in the pre-game wait.

It would seem so.. a number of friends on the mumble server I frequent expressed the same concerns about the playerbase.

I personally saw this for what it was long before the beta started and would not ever pay for something as blatant of a ripoff as this. "Lets change "day" to "war" and use crappy engine "b" instead of crappy engine "a"!"

How could it possibly go wrong!?

hmmm shouty shouty.

Well, these are mostly around a widescreen fix and sweetfx. sweetfx removed the fog back when you could disable FXAA, not possible since launch. The widescreen fix was something more controversial, dont know much about that.

But of course there are the inevitable cheats, wall hack, aimbots and that nonsense. Guess ill be pulling sweetfx tonight, although I hope the dev who is also using it and posted about it pulls his too.

I disabled the FXAA vaseline filter on day 1 of the release, and it's stayed off ever since then. No problems here.

EDIT: Was thinking of Natural Selection 2, whoops. You're right there is no setting for it in PS2, unfortunately.

Well at least Bungie claims it will be coming to PC =)

With concept art like this one might even hope for some decent space combat.. which is something I would love to see Bungie try their hand at.

We need to start some sort of Snuggle Truck movement. Make it a meme so everyone buys it and plays it. Make it the best selling, most played game of all time! That'd rock so hard. People playing Snuggle Truck on their phones in the subway. Snuggle Truck merchandise everywhere. Awesome!


Advertize the fact that it includes a "Brony Mode" and you'll get half of the Team Fortress 2 player population to "pony up". lol

Flatline wrote on Nov 25, 2012, 17:23:
I've always wondered why consoles were so goddamn anemic in the memory department. Xbox launched with 512 system memory at a time when 2-3 gigs was pretty commonplace and not particularly expensive.

A $15-$30 difference in production costs over the sales of millions of consoles would be the justification of this, as that adds up to quite a bit of profit loss for something deemed "not necessary". Yes it was a relatively low amount compared to PC's of the day, but they didn't have to worry about things like a fully bloated O/S taking up a lion's share of the pie as well.

DangerDog wrote on Nov 25, 2012, 14:39:
On the PC people are already pushing the envelope way beyond what the next gen consoles can bring, upgrading from 1920x1080 to 2560x1440 is just one of those things that you can do today and will be even more mainstream going forward.

I personally am satisfied completely at the moment with 1920x1080 on PC. The move up to a true 120hz lcd was much more important to me, and does more to improve the experience than the bump in resolution and resulting loss in performance. With games like Natural Selection 2 and Planetside 2 currently raping PC hardware as it is, I would rather not be forced to that high a resolution to maintain the native output of my monitor. Either way, both paths (2560x1440 & 120hz) are great upgrades for a PC user, depending on your preferences.

I understand where he is coming from, to some degree, but the notion that we should only be "swanning around with better outfits and weapons" if we purchase the game from say.. Gamestop, or some other store with "in-game exclusives", is laughable at best. I very much prefer the kickstarter method than what is going on currently. You invest more into it becoming reality, you get more out of it.. pretty simple.

Wow I expected to see others having CTD issues. I played the beta for months and although I would occasionally crash, this new build will not work for me. I have 2 totally different systems one is a intel 2500k and the other is an AMD 6 core both have 8 gig ram and both have nvidia cards one is a 660ti and the other is a 560ti. I downloaded both systems from Steam and both computers CTD within 30 seconds of the start of the game. Ive tried differnet sets of drivers even the beta ones that say they are specific for PS2 stability. On the forums there are many others that have the same issue as myself CTD over and over. This is by far the worst launch of any game ive seen personally but it seems others have no issues playing it. The one good thing is the game was totally free if this game was not free and it was something I bought I would be losing my mind but I have so many other games to play right now it doesnt really matter. I played Planetside 1 and really liked it but that one was a pay to play and I quickly lost interest once I got into battlefield. This one I played in the beta and It seems good but It looks like a game where you will have the upper hand if you decide to pay some money for. The devs said its not going to be a pay to win type of game but it sure looks like one.

I CTD, but it is random and never within 30 seconds of starting the game. Since launch I've CTD'd 4 or 5 times actually. (amd phenom2 quadcore 4 gigs ram gtx480 win7-64)

If "lone wolves" are useless then it just isn't the game for me. Oh well. Have fun everybody.

It really depends on your definition of "useless". I've sneaked into enemy territories with the light assault class a couple times and staked out very nice positions, taking down 10+ enemies where they completely didn't expect me.. Jetpacks rock =)

But then you run out of ammo and start to run around trying to knife people, which feels incredibly dull... and your overall contribution to the team isn't much but delaying enemies while doing this. Still they were some fun scenarios to end up in while learning the game early on =) A wingman with ammo drop could have made the carnage much more long-lasting though!
