But those numbers don't take into account games that are PVR'd! Oh wait...

How do you play them without the controls?
I'm just guessing, but most likely using the angle of the phone to move, and probably an on-screen button to fire. I hate playing games on the iPhone.

They're not entitled to further profit, and this idea is insanely horrible. Let's see how many people sign up for it.

And while I love Steam, this is one reason why I don't buy games via Steam anymore.

News Comments > Wolfenstein Screenshots?

Did well enough for CoD4, despite what some people here may want to argue.
There's nothing to argue, because you're wrong. Why in the world would you think CoD4 used the Quake 3 engine? CoD4 used a completely proprietary engine.

Seems like a lame way to drum up interest... those shots look pretty boring.

And yeah, there seem to be quite a few people out there who still misspell id as iD, so that's a dead giveaway.

News Comments > Valve on Improving the TF2 Experience
5. Re: Valve on Improving the TF2 Experience Mar 12, 2009, 22:46 Riker
 
Outstanding! I hate running into those shitty servers, along with servers that look like they have an opening, which turns out to be a reserved slot. It's nice to see Valve doing something about the first problem, at least.

What's the point in tricking people to join your empty server? If you're going to do that, why have a server at all? Losers.

(And I agree, it sounds like a router problem.)

I like how people on this site are the first to get up on the highest of all high horses and bitch and whine about how graphics are everything in todays games. Then when someone releases a deep game that is gameplay-over-graphics, they still bitch.

I see the exact opposite.

Still looks awful, but it's prety cool that people are still interested in making and playing these old-school games.

Awesome.

Ahh the only reason to watch Showtime.

You've apparently not seen Dexter. Do it.

Oh right, what was I thinking? Everything that runs on Vista runs fine on Windows 7, doesn't it? Silly me.

With the possible exception of the first picture, those are old pictures of concept art, not screenshots. Well, except for the last one, which is bizarrely from Deus Ex 1.

If the summary is correct, than this is merely banning the sale of such games to minors. I don't really have a problem with that, but I'm not sure the government should be parenting children.

Ya, good luck to 'em... they're gonna need it. NCSoft is a pretty big gorilla in the MMO market themselves.

I say it's too early to write the obituary. If anyone else's hands, it would be easy for me to dismiss. But Warren's got one heck of a track record, including a nearly-10-year-old game that still tops my all-time favorite games list.

"The true relevance of the story will actually be irrelevant until we release our next game, at which time I hope there will be a lot of interest in what we've done that can produce such results."

Whoa.

News Comments > Fallout 3 Midnight Launch Events; Steam Pre-Purchase
17. Re: Fallout 3 Midnight Launch Events; Steam Pre-Purchase Oct 25, 2008, 16:29 Riker
 
I hate installing games after a format - with Steam I simply install the client and all my games are ready to play, along with auto-patching when updates are released. There's no way I'd ever be bothered installing the 80 so games I've got on Steam after each format.
Unless you have an amazing connection, I can't imagine downloading those 80 games would be faster than installing them by disc. Of course, with Steam you can always burn back-ups to disc. You make some good points... who knows, I may yet decide to buy it off Steam.
