Right there with ya. Started with the Monster3D from Diamond and then the Voodoo 2's from them. I think my first card that replaced the Voodoo 2 was the Nvidia TNT card.

It really wasn't until Geforce 2 that 3dfx went to shit, that and them buying STB instead of remaining a chip company. That really fucked up their company trying to distribute their own boards.

That horse sure is moving around a lot for being dead.

There's a sucker born every minute, aka there's constant fresh replacement of kiddies being born constantly who don't have the history of battlefield behind them. So they wouldn't know how shitty bf has become.

Steam likes being the biggest kid on the block by a large margin.
Which it is. Regarding those Steam numbers ... can you imagine how small the customer base of Origin or Uplay really is? I wonder if Origin and Uplay are kept alive because the board simply wants to be present on the online distribution market. And not because they make a decent profit.

It's all about control of the market via online only games/drm. Consider how infected most new games are with online requirements. Basically the idiot masses have handed everything the corporate world wanted over in spades. People are fucking are idiots.

I'd hope that the majority of PC gamer's have given up on any title where the majority of gameplay consists of grinding for gear that lets you grind for better gear.

Note that when the mechanic was originally introduced (long before MMO's were a thing). It was new and refreshing, the reason why it survives is the fact that most gamers will play anything even if its shit to pass the time. They will fork over money for bad games because largely the masses are idiots.

What do you think league of legends is? It's a sign of the times. Mainstream = the average human being = stupid.

It baffles you as to why Steam would keep it private that less than 1/5 of its userbase actually buys games? They want people to think they have 10M customers.

The reality is not how many people don't buy games, the reality is game developers have been making shitty games for people that suck at games (league of legends, dota 2). Quality hardcore games like Hard reset, Shadow warrior 2013 are rare.

Games that used to be hardcore like battlefield, etc, have basically lost quality. The reason the gaming public doesn't buy as many games is because games that are being released aren't buyworthy and definitely not buyworthy at full price when its stuffed with DRM.

I really despise how developers complain about shitty sales and they are either 1) a one man/few man indie shop or 2) are totally money grubbing DRM/F2P asswipes.

The reality is steam has made it easy for developers to release shit to the gullible half of the internet community. I pretty much only buy games on gog and anything I deem noteworthy that is of AAA quality I get for less then $10, since paying full price for steam / DRM infected games is bad news.

Developers really need to get their heads out of their asses and make better games and release on other platforms besides steam like GOG. I am a huge fan of the hard reset devs, flying wild hog. They are one of the few last traditional developers that give a flying fuck about 'real gaming' as it was in the 90's.

SSI was king of the commodore back in the day of DnD pnp madness.

Best "recent" game that hearkened back to these gold box games was Knights of the Chalice.


You're forgetting legend of grimrock.

Its a symptom of deeper issue - the mindset of a socialist society.

Man where do you get this shit? This is the result of the capitalists protecting the capitalist system you idiot. It has nothing to do with socialism. Capitalism naturally evolves into a totalitarian society because of technology and big companies natural tendency to become monopolies or private authoritarian and autocratic kingdoms of commerce under which the peasants labor.

See this by former national security advisor of the US.

Only the past 5 years has gaming become boring.

Reality was gaming became boring around the 2000's when all the big developers moved from PC to console and dumbed down permanently. Halo 1 was originally supposed to be a PC game and they basically gimped it for console land, everything we had in quake and unreal was lost with the rise of console first person shooters. We're only slowly starting to see a trickle of more traditional fast paced shooters 15 years later.

The likes of Hard Reset, Shadow Warrior 2013. I pine for some future day when someone remakes duke 3d well with all with modern slicked out graphics even if I know its not likely.

Gaming stopped going places when budgets rose to insane degrees and team sizes ballooned.

This is a pretty killer feature if it really does what it says on the tin...

Uhh no, whenever you see "streaming" you should hear "we are going to never give you games to download again, one day all entertainment will be in the cloud and you will all pay us $$$.

They are just trying to perfect DRM and the end of game ownership via bs strategies.

Blizzcon stream and some virtual crap, only $40. Go suckers go, Blizz knows it audience!

Tragically enough all the shit that has been unleashed upon us over the last 15+ years is only possible when these fuckers are 100's of miles away and can't get smacked the moment they pulled their criminal bullshit. The "market" doesn't work when buyer isn't within asskicking distance to make sure the transaction stays honest.

The problem with PA was just the developers are out of ideas, RTS has reached a point of pure stagnancy and to get it over that stagnant hump is going to require a budget many times that of the original PA.

Yeah cos you know money leads to ideas and loads of money leads to fucking awesome ideas. Rolleyes

Not saying ideas are not important but without the money to buy the time to realize them developers are just going to keep repeating "doing what they know".

The reason RTS keeps being rehashed over and over is because largely there is no commitment of funds. Supreme commander 1 suffered under severe budget constraints and it showed in the lack of faction diversity. So to say RTS games don't need time and money to develop is a non starter, the reason why RTS is rehashed is because money buys you the time to do unit testing/balancing.

Just consider how awful supreme commander 1 was on release. The game finished in a broken state the AI was shit, the faction diversity was mirror images of one another and unit production times were wtf awful.

Doesn't sound like anything I'd be interested in, especially when one of the first things that's touted is "smooth controller gameplay" before puzzles and bling.

That's unfortunately the future. Steam making every game best played with their console controller, gamers playing console game conversions with their console controller... *sigh* The pc is slowly turned into a high resolution console.

It's all about control. The same way mmos/drm/f2p is taking away games permanently from gamers.

Yes it's a sense of entitlement when you quote what was promised and what was actually delivered.

Given how much the game industry has taken from gamers that we used to have (non drm'd games, mod tools, game editing, dedicated servers, lan, etc). If anything we deserve to be entitled since we are paying.

What's REALLY funny is reading these comments from people (not necessarily on here, I mean on forums at large) who willingly give up even more information on a daily basis.

In case you hadn't noticed, you can't do anything without leaking information in the modern world. This has nothing to do with irresponsibility of the masses because your post suggest human beings have 'freedom of choice' and 'the ability to decide for themselves'.

Alright, if you believe in freedom and responsibility, why exactly does our present clusterfuck of a world exist? Why didn't previous generations come to the conclusion that their idiotic self destructive behavior was the cause of their problems and prevent our current idiotic world of war and stupidity from coming into being?

Human beings have no freedom what so ever and the human mind didn't evolve to deal with technology or large scale societies like ours.

Think about MMO's/DRM'd games for a second, while part of us older gamers didn't buy diablo 3, world of warcraft or any other MMO the dumb segments of the population did, thereby giving corporations the green light to go ahead and since markets don't really exist (aka its a myth for the masses). The only way we could correct the corruption of game developers/game businesses is if we all lived within a block or two of these companies to make our displeasure about their criminal behavior known directly.

You simply can't have any kind of self regulating society when buyer and seller are 100's of miles away from each other, it breeds criminality and skullduggery. This is one of the reasons our world is so fucked up, people mindlessly lapping up the stories and beliefs about society they are told about the world and how it works.

Its Without the grind however. I have this, its a lot like Heavy Gear 1&2 in play. Server style is 'dedicated' based (drop in/drop out), instead of matchmaking.

They are working on Single Player campaign akin to the old games as well for those that want to steer clear of MP whenever its gets a 'full' release. They even have the story board concept up if you want to read it, which is based off the PnP Lore (takes place during the last year of War of the Alliance TN1913 or AD6119)

I wouldn't trust anything game developers say. There's been too much evidence they see gamers as suckers, and they are not wrong in that regard.

Starcraft did right by Starcraft. It did remove a lot of SC UI limitations, even if we take them for granted now.

The problem with SC2 is that the original team that did SC1 was not behind SC2. SC2 feels like a bunch of newbie developers who are too far removed from the spirit of the original games.

This is so apparent in the story, the story doesn't feel like a continuation of SC1/bw's story, it comes off as a total alternate universe really bad fanfic story.

If it weren't for world of warcrafts success we wouldn't have had to wait 12 years for SC2, that 12 year gap was what really killed it.

I just recently picked up Dragonfall, I've played a bit but other games have kinda superseeded it, like GTA 5 and Witcher 3.

I'm sorry but if you believe this, you are not the audience for this game.

You strike me as a movie gamer (aka psuedo gamer) if it's not realistic like a hollywood movie, you balk. You've been raised on this pseudo-game bullshit your entire life. If anything GTA 5 and TW3 are the ultimate pseudo-games. Where in the game is more movie then game.

While Shadowrun was a bit dumbed down they did a decent job with the directors cut given the limited resources they had. It's high time we got back to systems of game mechanics instead of film industry dick sucking modern AAA devs and publishers do.

Of course, what usually supports the evolution and mass production of an invention is based on an investor's financial gain and striving to competie with other products, but it doesn't make it any less beneficial to humanity in the long run. Otherwise, you wouldn't be using Internet, computers, driving a car, and the list goes on.

I'm sorry to tell you, but everything you believe was the result of free market competition was actually the result of massive subsidies to the military industrial complex. The internet came out of research that was massively funded by the government.

Free market fantasists and corporate pr lackeys like to fetishize competitive capitalism but where the rubber meets the road is reality - aka massive state intervention in the economy. They know people like you are not very bright and don't do any research and just gobble up mindless pablum you were taught by the media/educational institutions.

Your comment shows how historically ignorant you are of what actually happens like you've never looked into the matter seriously.

Thats because most people don't want the forced online component, they'd happily play quick games on dedicated servers but due to the nature of always online DRM we get bullshit. No thanks to the retards that fed this crap over the last 10+ year beginning with mmo's (DRM'd rpgs).
