News Comments > Cinemaware Anthology: 1986-1991 Released

Wow, It Came From the Desert got a sequel? I had no idea! Cinemaware games were one of my most cherished Amiga games as a kid. Especially DotC, ICftD and Wings.

Always loved the way they combined different gameplay mechanics and styles together.

What about Alliance? It is a great game and definitely deserves a re-release. I think GOG should've actually released the entire trilogy, and only with updated graphics. Still have my trilogy CD's around, but unfortunately they won't install on 64bit OS without hassle.

Hopefully "soon". I would expect they're going to take one look at the sales numbers for these and have no question Alliance and XvT need to happen.



Alliance would be good, but I have 2 words for you:

Full. Throttle.
No doubt it deserves a GOG release. It's just that FT runs just fine under ScummVM. X-Wing games, not so much.

50GB of disk space?!? If your ISP employs a data cap you'd better plan well in advance for the download. I realize the download won't be 50GB, but it won't be less than 30GB.
I gather only some ISP's in developing nations would have data caps?

You can install them with a modded nv_disp.inf and work just fine on 6 & 7 series cards. Wouldn't bother though since 344.11 are great drivers.

So how is it, that back in the day "alpha" meant a playable build of the game, albeit missing a lot of the assest, and most definitely stuff like sound, music and certainly all voice acting. Nowadays whenever they showcase alpha or even release alpha builds for testing a la Battlefield, it's more akin to a 'beta" than anything else.

Anyhow, I don't get a strong feeling of a "party based tactical RPG" from this spammy combat. It's almost like you're playing solo, and suddenly your party just appears out of nowhere and starts throwing their shit around.

Hopefully you can still micro manage the party and in harder difficulties, zooming back on large battles and asigning consecutive commands on individual party members is a must for survival. Queuing actions is still probably too much to ask for...

Then again, what the Dragon Age franchise desperately needs is a dynamic animal population system (DAPS). It was high time they introduced it. We're sure to see DAPS in any upcoming RPG from now on. Let's just hope The Witcher 3 isn't going to be delayed because of it.

News Comments > Stolen Sniper Elite 3 Keys Banned
42. Re: Stolen Sniper Elite 3 Keys Banned Jun 29, 2014, 05:54 qsto
 
I've only had my key revoked once on Steam. It was MW2 key purchased via G2Play. Supposedly a stolen batch. They replaced my key in couple of days and I've had no problems with them or Kinguin after that. Purchased dozens of keys since then, always at least half the price of Steam. I guess stuff like this happens every now and then. Can't really comment on Rebellion or their game since I've no interest in this. Played the coop Nazi Zombie thing and it was fun while it lasted, but nothing special.

eh why i thought they were making that daylight game
As it says right there, this isn't developed by Techland but some dev I've never heard of, Yager. Apparently they made SpecOps which I never played...

Yep, this is it... from now on, there's pretty much bound to be a new BF game EVERY year until the kingdom cometh. Next year it's either new BC title or some future sci-fi BF.

Yeah, if I could get it at Steam without Uplay, I wouldn't hesitate for a second. But for me, Uplay is no sale, period.

So this game actually benefits from hyper-threading? That would be the first wouldn't it... to this day HT has actually only impaired game performance iirc.

Here I was thinking to hold on to my 2500k@4.7GHz for a few more years, maybe upgrade to Maxwell once it arrives. Guess I'll be dead in the water in six months

They need to address the X-Axis mouse issue is what they need to address.

Anyone else have that issue, and if so, do you know of a fix? The issue renders the game pretty much unplayable.

Acceleration cannot be currently disabled completely even though the toggle option is in the menu. It will however be addressed in experimental build next week and should find its way to "stable" branch by the end of the month.

You can still set mouseSmoothing=0; in DayZProfile file under \Documents\DayZ and remember to disable vsync. The game will yet apply a certain amount of delay if you try to pull a fast 180, since it's based on ArmA2 which is a simulator, and tries to create a realistic feel for the movement that will most likely piss off anyone used to arcade shooters. Still, it's not a twitch game and i've never had issues hitting anything while in scoping / IS mode because of lag. Playing in 3rd person will also somewhat mitigate the lag in x-axis movement.

You do know that there is a 64-bit version XP Pro available? So XP users can still play this game when it comes out
I did know that, but I have no idea if they represent 1, 5, 10, or 50% of the installed XP base. If I had to guess, I'd guess under 10%.

From what I'd heard a few years ago, it was buggy as fuck and no one used it.

I used XP x64 exclusively for about a year before Vista was released, and had no issues with it. In fact it was a very robust OS that had a thread scheduling way beyond to that of 32bit XP. I was able to multitask like crazy and never had unresponsive programs on my taskbar like I used to in old XP. For me it ran smooth as butter.

Obviously some exotic hardware drivers didn't exist but but as far as graphics, sound, networking etc. everything was tip top during the time it was running on my system. And gaming on it was far far more fluid than on Vista x64, but that goes without saying.

Despite being buggy and generally looking like ass, I really enjoyed Dark Corners of Earth. It had a very gripping atmosphere, a story worthy of its origins and it combined this sort of old school adventure feel with decent puzzels into fps better than anything before, or even after.

Here's to hoping these guys are striving for something similar.

I don't get the hype about half-life 3, Half-life 2 wasn't as good as the original. So many parts of that game dragged so badly.
I think you reminisce HL1 with far too rose-coloured glasses. On A Rail was a convoluted mess and I really shouldn't even have to mention Xen at this point...

Finally started playing Saints Row 4 and man have I missed Volition. I always wanted to see them make a spiritual successor to Freespace, but now I kind of want to see them make an open world Bladerunner style game instead. SR4 really isn't that far off while still embracing the craziness of Saints Row.

An open world cyberpunk/noir game? Yespleaseyesplease.
Well, there was Neocron back in the day. Albeit it was an MMO, it still comes closest of anything such what you depict. It was was a decent effort but quite buggy upon release and lacking in many gameplay aspects, or rather the implementation wasn't all there in many ways. But hacking for instance was awesome in that game.

It had so much potential though, and I've been craving after anything similar ever since. As of now, Neocron is actually F2P and still being actively developed by the community. I've been meaning to go back and try it gain, but for some reason I still haven't managed that

Here's to hoping someone will actually make a modern game such as Neocron in the near future. And that it will look like the UE4 tech demo Infiltrator we saw last year

Oh man Neocron. I beta tested that 10 years ago and it was such a pile of shit right up to and after release. They had a nice Deus Ex/System Shock MMO thing going on then flushed it down the toilet. Literally. You start off being forced into these dark boring sewers beating on derpy rats like every single fantasy MMO that came before it. Supposedly they made an expansion that turned into a sequel but I don't know what happened there and don't care.

I'll never touch another MMO because of Neocron.

Well, tbh it wasn't nearly as traditional MMO akin to its fantasy ilk like Anarchy Online. It actually tried to do something different, yet adhering to many aspects of most MMO games thus far. But yes, it was in quite a shitty state upon release.

Still, missing out on many decent MMO's that came after, just because of Neocron? Makes no sense, no offence man...
