my plans this weekend are to go back and play old Looking Glass Studios games Thief 1/2, and maybe System Shock 1/2 too if i have time. it's been at least 10-15 years since i last played them so about time to play them again now with mods.

It's not worth your time even if it's free. trust me.


Oh, and even the extremely dated looking Titanfall natively supports 2560x1080 resolution at the right aspect ratio. COD: Crap does not.

I know I'd rather be playing my free copy of Thief Gold this weekend rather than some crappy CoD multiplayer with a bunch of inbred kiddies...

The free digital copy (of Thief Gold) only requires an email address. And while I didn't see it listed, it plugs into steam just fine.


Go here.

looks like they restocked with more keys now.

so the texture mods and all that work with the Steam version?

No Blue, the Japanese do not count other countries. All those Asian countries are incredibly closed off, xenophobic and racist. Anyway can't wait to see PS4 explode in Japan and watch Ballmer cry his bitter, salty tears.

I wonder when Xbox One comes out in Japan. (if they will even bother.)

[...]
That was when I started to hear a lot from People In The Industry about how people at the studio were unhappy at work. I heard from People in the Industry that turnover at Irrational was very high. More than one Person in the Industry told me that almost no-one who made original BioShock stayed on to make Infinite. At the time, a year out from shipping, Someone Who Worked There told me they believed the studio would close if Infinite didn't sell very, very well.
[...]

i keep reading about great game companies closing up shop every year. there needs to be standards put in place or something to prevent project from going over budget and beyond their scope. maybe they're not using better software project management methodologies or just corporate likes to fuck everything up. i think they could implement all their triple-A ideas, script and lore writing, and design if they just did things right.

Wow, I thought it would take a year or two for XBones inferior hardware to really lag behind what was being done on PS4. I was really, really wrong. It seems like ALL of the third party, cross platform games run better and look better on the PS4 already. Crazy.

well to me the next-gen versions don't look that much better than the current gen ones. just the textures look a bit better but it looks perfectly playable on a $99 Xbox 360. you need a 1080p TV to really notice the differences and still a lot of ppl just have 720p screens. still not worth getting a $499 X Bone or $399 PS4 just for this game.

Xbox One is supposedly able to become more powerful over the cloud, but who knows if and when that happens.

Looks absolutely awful.

And I don't expect Doom to be any better. I wish they'd give Doom some respect and let the name die.

I'd rather see another Doom game than another RAGE game.

a new Quake game would be nice... probably coming right after Doom. would like to see a return to the original Q1 style.

Carmack only programmed the tech for the games, so with him gone the style and gameplay of their games will likely go unaffected.

Woo! Titanfall hijacking!

What I don't get is how PC gamers could be fine with a multiplayer limit of 12 players, no server browser and always online "single player" DRM. If this were Battlefield, Call of Duty or Sim City it would be ripped apart for those shortcomings.

I do like the concept though. I think I'll buy it at about $20, and hope the next one overcomes some of the classic PC gaming blunders.

supposedly there's no text chat either, only microphone allowed... and i agree, it's a huge ripoff at $60.

Say what? What horseshit....

yeh... well it says it's disabled for the beta but so did the Mass Effect 3 beta and then... there was no text chat for retail Mass Effect 3. :/
