Edit: Huh, Steam seems to have forgotten all of my payment information. That's a sign I'm going to choose to ignore....

I think they cleared all of it from the system after the forum hack rather than requiring people to come and do it themselves.

Think I might have to finally pick up Orcs Must Die for that price.

This is why we can't have nice things.

Battlefield did this for free. Halo: Reach did this for free. What are the odds the next game to come out starts charging now, too?

He couldn't, which is why he hopes this tweak solves his problem.

That's pretty much it, yeah.

It's entirely possible that the crashing is related to using texture mods, but those mods are sure nice to have. It's hard to go back to the vanilla look once you get used to them.

I don't notice any performance benefits from the LAA fix, but I was getting random crashes and eventual texture dropouts over time until I installed the original one... so it's nice to have this back. Was back to three or four crashes an hour again yesterday after the patch, so hopefully this sets the ship to sailing again.

Diablo 3 will be a $60 game that will likely not appear on Steam or any other DD vendor for that matter. Torchlight 2 will most likely be $20-30 and appear on all DD vendors. As long as they don't literally overlap the release window I think they will be fine.

Yup.

I plan on buying both, even if they're fairly close to the same release date. If it was same day I'd have to go with Diablo 3, but I'd still buy Torchlight 2 later on.

I was going to say the same thing since I like and adventure with a degree of difficulty. Then I read the "Zelda 'can be played by five-year-olds'." article. Nevermind...

My son was playing Ocarina of Time before he was 5 and doing fine... it's not like any of the Zelda games have ever been all that hard.

I've only heard one song off of Lulu, but it's a serious contender for being the worst song I've ever heard. The only way those earbuds could help it is if they don't work at all

Stats are not gameplay. This is working. People only like that, because they are victims of purposly implemented addictive reward mechanisms, which have replaced actual gameplay in most modern games.

How have they replaced gameplay? I can't think of one way that unlockables in BF3, or any other game off the top of my head, have replaced gameplay in any way at all.

Well I'll have to pop it into my PS3... oh wait. Seeing as we are talking about the PS3 here, as you cannot play GT5 any other way, I stand by my statement... if you want to talk fanboism lets talk about you posting and recommending a game that isnt even available on the PS3, now thats fanboism. As for any GT5 Vs Forza debate, I dont have a clue as I've never played Forza.

Nobody was talking about the PS3 or even mentioned it until your second post...hell, every post including yours mentioned other racers that aren't just on PS3 in comparison.

Same problem where everyone wants to kill you outdoors. Hate that. The wolves always attack, the bandits always attack. Be nice i they would sometimes size you up and say "Ya, you better get moving". I have seen this a tad with your proximity where a bandit warned me to get out and I stayed a bit too long. He just chased me for a short distance so that was cool. The giants too face you and stomp their feet, so they aren't ouright evil, but would be neat if they had varying degrees of hostility or passiveness.

This is in the game, you've already seen some of it... You'll find bandits that don't attack you immediately; I've already found a few places where they draw their weapons and tell you to back off, but don't outright attack. Most animals won't attack immediately, either.

I can't be positive since my gear isn't great yet, but things seem to notice how you're equipped, too, and you sometimes get different reactions from people as a result.

Nice, that makes the cost of CoD Elite comparable to other similar services. For a month, at least.

You mean the Day-Month-Year part? I'm 95% sure you're just kidding but since 95% of you guys are Christians I'll just play along and not use my reasoning, counter argument being that Day-Month-Year seems way more logical than Month-Day-Year .

Argh shite I used logic again! xD

The game comes out 11-11-11.

If you look at that in month-day-year instead, it comes out 11-11-11. If you look at it in day-month-year, it's 11-11-11.

...that's the joke.

Actually it has 11.1 million right now, down from the peak of 12 million.

8% is almost half, right?

The numbers they're talking about are only the NA numbers, which are just a fraction of the 12 million they've touted worldwide and are the subscriptions where people actually pay a monthly subscription fee. There's a lot more detailed discussions about this where people's hearts are actually into explaining it, but the number you're talking about is basically marketing BS.

beigemore wrote on Nov 8, 2011, 14:58:
I understand why people don't care for the pandas, but saying they got the idea from Kung Fu Panda is pretty ridiculous. The Pandaren have been around since Warcraft 3.

As an April Fool's joke.

Probably a result of that backwards date thing the Europeans do. Sometimes they let their produce spoil because they get so confused over which number is the day and which is the month. Oh, those wacky Europeans.

That's a bit of an exaggeration. Mass Effect was never much of an RPG to begin with. You couldn't sneak or talk your way through the game and the game as a whole was pretty linear.

If that's your criteria as to what games are RPG's or not there wouldn't be enough games in the genre to cover the fingers of one hand.

Didn't the awkward melee combat get absolutely bashed in all the reviews of that game?
Did it get fixed, or were the reviews wrong? Because most of them seemed to say melee sucked and controlled like guns, in that if you weren't pointing perfectly your baseball bat would oddly whiff.

If that's what reviews said, they were wrong. The melee was basically an improved version of what TES games have been doing for years, with damage modeling and reactive effects upon impact.

It's the best implementation of FPS melee combat I've ever seen in a game, anyway.

If the graphics are shit then gameplay is ALL you have, and we all know how amazing Beth is at game design..cough.

I don't think the series has been around this long and has been as popular as it is by having bad gameplay.

I love the mods as much as the next guy, but if the TES core games were shitty people wouldn't bother.
