News Comments > DICE Opens BF Hardline Preorders; Promises Continued BF4 Support

Going on two years of ignoring everything EA releases... CODifying Battlefield is most certainly not helping their case in my eyes. Any of these upcoming games will have to be super fucking amazing and flawless if they're going to win me back. It just sucks, because I used to love playing them, up to and including BF3.

News Comments > Interstellar Marines Spearhead Earlier Early Access
2. Re: Interstellar Marines Spearhead Earlier Early Access May 29, 2014, 12:57 jacobvandy
 
No idea. I bought the Spearhead package 3-4 years ago (they were actually brilliantly ahead of the curve when it came to crowdfunding) when they were promising a super-immersive co-op Half-Life in space... Now all I can do is ignore this nonsense about a multiplayer shooter mode while simultaneously hoping it manages to keep them afloat long enough to actually deliver at least some of the campaign.

This still qualifies as news? Sounds like business as usual to me...

It's a puzzle game, you have to figure out how to kill the target based on his behavior, the environment, and the resources available to you.

It seems to me that the contrived backstory is just an excuse to have low-tech weaponry (though WTF was that plasma rifle thing?) in an early 1900's setting. People love swords and bows and arrows and shit, but medieval has been done to death, and adding firearms to the mix is ALWAYS met with massive complaints from the aforementioned people who love swords and bows and arrows and shit...

As an interesting comparative:

1998 - Half-Life
2003 - Day of Defeat
2004 - Half-Life 2
2004 - Counter-Strike: Source (Co-Developed with Hidden Path Entertainment)
2005 - Day of Defeat: Source
2006 - Half-Life 2: Episode 1
2007 - Half-Life 2: Episode 2
2007 - Portal
2007 - Team Fortress 2
2008 - Left 4 Dead
2009 - Left 4 Dead 2

2011 - Portal 2
2012 - Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (Co-Developed with Hidden Path Entertainment)
2013 - DOTA 2



But that is all people really care about, in terms of the comparison brought up here.

Bethesda Game Studios' major releases:

2002 - Morrowind, Tribunal
2003 - Bloodmoon
2006 - Oblivion
2007 - Shivering Isles
2008 - Fallout 3
2011 - Skyrim
2012 - Dragonborn

That is nowhere near Valve status (as far as branching out away from core titles)... Entitled much?

ITT: People still forgetting Bethesda is a fairly large publisher of many games from different studios that have nothing to do with Fallout or TES.

Any time a government agency tries to sell you a catch phrase like "Net Neutrality," it's really the opposite. See Patriot Act, Freedom of Information Act, etc.

Good thing the government didn't come up with Net Neutrality, isn't it?

You probably missed the post I made a minute or two before yours, but the government is already corrupting Net Neutrality. It doesn't matter that they didn't come up with the term, because the vast majority of the population hadn't heard of it until Obama starting spouting off about it during the last election cycle (and as mentioned, still wouldn't understand it if you tried to explain it to them). It's a government term now, and what they're currently doing is exactly what he/they meant by it.

In other words, if you were applying the old, truer definition of Net Neutrality when hearing that Obama was going to champion it, you were dead fucking wrong. Which is my point.

Right, but then the FCC dug their tentacles into it and are turning it into something else entirely.

Chrome will automatically format text for you on any website, I doubt any sort of investment like that will be worth it for this one.

Maybe choppy is the wrong word considering it's used to describe low framerates, but it's just as bad when it's swinging up into way too high fps, IMO. Moments of absurdly fluid motion interspersing your average, acceptable speed is still disruptive. I always prefer to cap the fps to prevent that nonsense.

I'll take a solid 30 or 40 over a choppy 50-120 any day.

Cool, props to doing something different. Can't wait for my boxed copy! Successful Kickstarter ahoy, move over FO3, its time for the real deal.

I'm right there with you. Can't wait to see how the box turns out.

They must be offloading that megarealistic wind simulation to the GPU. Crunching real-time Chicago weather patterns has its cost...

They've been for sale on Steam a good while now... I wouldn't be surprised if they have matched their KS funds that way already.

There are actual working pirated copies out there, it's just this one guy spoofed a scene release and fooled people into downloading it based on that group's trusted name. I wonder how much BTC he was able to scrounge up...

I heard there's an early pirated release of Watch Dogs going around that is installing Bitcoin mining malware, and people are none the wiser because they're wholly accepting of a new AAA release running like crap!

Pussies. It's one thing to change the name out of [supposed] respect for victims of a tragedy, but another to change it right back after the heat dies down and make it apparent you only did so to protect your own asses from backlash.
