DOS Days > All

Loadhigh="hahanoway.sys"

I had like 6 boot options and getting Ultima 7 to run with sound and a mouse driver suckkkked. D:
Ahh yes...the good old DOS days. Buy Dark Sun: Shattered Lands for $60+ from EB...then realize you couldn't finish due to a bug. I think after talking to SSI's support it only took 4-6 weeks for them to ship me the floppy with the patch on it.

OMG!! I remember that bug... yeah, I think I had to dial in to a BBS just to download a patch to get past that showstopper bug. such a good game too.

Valve has already said there won't be any exclusives, even if they did try to do HL3 as an exclusive people would play HL3 and then ditch the OS and go back to Windows.

I don't see this as a reason to ditch Windows as a desktop OS and have no interest in PC gaming in the living room.

I'd disagree. wasn't it the case when HL2 required Steam that everybody chose Steam to eventually be the dominant/leading platform for digital distribution? if HL3 was exclusive to SteamOS it could be adopted as a main platform for gamers, and I wouldn't be surprised if Valve made HL3/L4D3 exclusive to Steam Machine/SteamOS. history can repeat itself. they may say there won't be exclusives but things can always change. the only way for mass adoption is for exclusivity rights, and that's what Microsoft is trying to do with Xbox One for digital TV shows and movies.

nice, I need one of those SS Stratus wireless controllers for my iPad Air. I love my tablet but the touchscreen controls for games just don't cut it.

Would be cool if some developers made the full switch to Steam OS and left Windows in the dust, for their upcoming games

Half-Life 3, exclusive to Steam OS. The End.

Seriously.

Some people didn't grow up in the DOS days. Windows and DirectX brought PC gaming to the masses.

Judging by the looks on their faces, even they know that this is all BS.

Mobile gaming is terrible. I bought a GS4 and was all psyched about the gaming potential. Then I downloaded a few games and found out that they were completely awful. The only games that even come close to being good are the GTA games and you need a MOGA controller for it to be semi-fun. It will be a long time before any mobile games are worth looking at. As it stands, they're all such shallow games with no content. The FF games might be the exception when considering content.

XCom Enemy Unknown is really fun. I'm currently playing through that on my iPad Air. Infinity Blade series is not bad also, but the best tablet games are the direct PC ports and not designed for mobile games.

Isn't Chobot the one that modeled for Mass Effect 3? Chobot looks so out of place and Jersey Shore-ish in that game lol.

Also what does Chobot have to do with this Daylight game? Voice work?

this is Chobot's game. she's mainly the writer, game designer and is part of a team of 6 at Zombie Studios. surprises you?

But you still want to bang the shit out of her, don't you?
Meh, I find Jade Raymond (Assasin's Creed) to be a lot hotter, and not so full of herself like Chobot.

yah! J.R. (at Ubi Toronto) is totally way hotter. im part of the fan club.

Maybe he left because the poor guy just wanted to make some good Star Wars levels for a game. Then when LA leads messed up, he went to Valve and wanted to design and make levels for Half-Life 3, and then when Valve said, 'nah, we're all over at the other tables now, you gotta roll over here bro' he just said enough was enough.


yeh, and WTF is going on with Half-Life 3 anyways?

....eh....it's already out and it was on sale for $10 on steam recently. Charging $59.99 for another pc version would be hilarious.

yeah... if they charged $59 for Doom: BFG edition I wonder if it would've sold more.

maybe we'll see a tablet with Tegra K1 in 2015-2016... why do they bother teasing us now so early? their press event last night was boring as hell too. crop circles, 3d car dashboard and bongzilla included.
