Mysterious anonymous source. Check.
Something everybody wants to be true. Check.
Site looking to increase readership. Check.

Hmmmm.

Yep, sounds about right to me. No way in hell it'll be an announcement about Half-Life 3. And an engine reveal is pretty damned tepid... doubt that'll be the surprise either.

Like I said already, I'm thinking Valve is giving the Black Mesa Mod team center stage and the surprise will be the release of Black Mesa.

Oooh, that's a tasty notion.

PC exclusive on the cards?

That dampens my enthusiasm -- and I'm a PC-only gamer. There's no reason for Valve to release a PC-exclusive game, so I'm wondering if it's a minor Steam announcement, or maybe a minor PC-exclusive feature in Portal 2.

Gabe indicates that it's not Episode 3, but as I've been saying for a long time now, Episode 3 will never see the light of day. I'm hoping it'll be a Half-Life 3 announcement, but it seems unlikely given that they'll want to be pimping Portal 2.

Looks like ass; hopefully the gameplay and story will make up for it.

And yeah, both links/videos are the exact same.

The original was good back in the day. By no means was it the end all that some people make it out to be.

Yeah, it totally was.

Extremely disappointing reviews. I was really looking forward to the game, so that's a bummer. At this point, I think Obsidian has had more than enough time to prove themselves.

You're promoting the idea of pirating software because you don't agree with the company's views?

This isn't a matter of difference of opinion between company and consumer, this is a matter of paying customers not being able to play a game that they purchased, and me not wanting to be one of them. You're promoting the concept of fucking over legitimate customers out of the delusion that it's going to make the company more money. Anyone who feeds this bullshit with their dollars is part of the problem.

News Comments > Ubisoft DRM Analysis
20. Re: Ubisoft DRM Analysis May 30, 2010, 17:19 Riker
 
Settlers 7 is one of my favorite games of the last year. After hearing reports of the game not working properly for those who purchased the game, I decided that UbiSoft won't get a single penny from me. I'll be damned if I'm going to be the fool who pays money for a game that doesn't fucking work properly.

If anything, I'll bet Ubi's DRM is costing them money, because pirates aren't effected any longer, and the bad press has been huge.

LOL at the Unreal screenshot. The game didn't really look that bad, did it? Maybe nostalgia causes me to remember it in a better light.

LittleMe - those screenshots do make Oblivion look quite nice. Are there any mods that transform it from a landscape simulator into an actual, fun game?

Oh my gosh, the patch reveals that Half-Life 3 will be announced at this year's E3 and will be released on-schedule before the end of the year!

I'll keep dreaming.

Jesus, these lists get more and more ridiculous. EVE Online at #3 is especially silly, and points out how easy it is for a fansite or two to skew the results to the extreme.

My ass, it was incredibly minimalist music. It fit very well in the context of the game but it's hardly good "listening" music.

I think the fact that was in the background and not blaring/thumping/in-your-face helped create the amazing atmosphere in Fallout 1 and 2... I can't think of another game soundtrack that had such a profound and exponential impact on the atmosphere.

I won't be listening to this in my car or anything, but I'll be putting it on in the background while I'm working.

So fucking awesome. Arguably the best soundtrack in the history of gaming.

I think about this soundtrack all the time, which is as weird and unusual for me as that sounds.

When an independent, low/no-budget game looks like an independent, low/no-budget game, it's not good. It looks and sounds (musically) obscenely horrible.

Sorry if I wasn't clear. There's no way in hell Ubi's getting a cent from me until they stop using their current DRM.

The game has 10-15 second pauses every 10-15 minutes, which is a bit annoying, but it doesn't ruin the game.
