Looking forward to that Hard Reset game.....waiting for more reviews and really hoping for a demo.

They said they would have a demo. Something along the lines of (off-hand quote): It's an old-school PC game, and old-school PC games had demos.

Half-Life 2 requires Steam.
Battlefield 3 requires Origin.
Am I the only one who really doesn't care about this?

Half-Life 2 doesn't require me to open a fucking web page to play it.

News Comments > World of Warcraft Hotfixes
3. Re: World of Warcraft Hotfixes Aug 11, 2011, 17:21 Frijoles
 
Also, some of these hotfixes are for what they consider exploits. They made firelands mobs so they can't be immobilized because they were "easy" to farm solo. This hotfix messes that up. The Death from Above achievement was a pain in the ass, so I guess this makes it easier (I've not been working on it).

So yeah, they do a lot of hotfixes. But they're painless for the most part and tend to fix small things, like heirlooms not being linked in chat (onoes!).

The town screen was replaced with a town window which has a 2D animated view of your town that will update as buildings are added, although not all buildings will have an impact on the town window. Also you won't be able to interact with the town window.

Now that does suck. I think town building was my favorite part.

Is that a serious question? 6 Games and loads of expansions later and the gameplay has barely changed much. Chances are if you like the HOMM series, it's because of the gameplay.

I worry about them pulling a DoW2 or C&C and changing a bunch of shit to make the game "more accessible". We'd probably have heard about it by now though if that had happened.

Anyone in the beta care to comment on the gameplay? Is it worth $60?

Maybe I am different because I 1) use Linux and OS X and 2) don't install into Program Files (games go in D:\Games and apps go in C:\Apps) but I just don't get how UAC is 'annoying'. It rarely pops up and it is a basic security feature present in pretty much every other operating system. It just took Windows forever to catch up.

It's annoying when you're first setting up a computer. Every thing you do requires multiple confirmations. Want to move a link? Better ask 3 times just to make sure. Want to update an ini file? FUCK YOU for thinking you could edit your own custom folder/file from the command prompt without admin rights.

I turn it off because I use the command prompt for most things and UAC hates that. I tell everyone else to leave it on, though. Or turn it back on after everything is configured following a new install.

News Comments > WoW Drops More Subs
42. Re: WoW Drops More Subs Aug 4, 2011, 17:02 Frijoles
 
The casual players are coming out of the woodworks to explain why they left, here and on other forums. I hope the hardcore raiders are shitting themselves seeing that WoW may swing back the other way. If it does.

I quit for the same reasons. Content was too difficult to bother doing. And the Firelands started out cool, but it soon became apparently just how bad of a grind it was.

They've gone race>class>race with expansions so far. If this is the name of the next expansion then there's a good chance that Pandaren won't be a playable race, and that it will introduce a new class instead.

I'm thinking this as well. In fact, I think the reason they patched the login page to let us shuffle things around is because they wanted to make more room for more characters, something I'd expect if they give us another class so we can have one of each.

They're actually nervous at this point because they're losing subs in the droves and as soon as swtor and gw2 release it's gonna get ugly for blizzards darling.

Are these the games that are finally going to kill WoW? I've lost count over how many times WoW has fallen to other games.

Also, I hate Cata. But I don't think they're teetering on the brink just yet.

For a million bucks, I'm sure Valve is going to be scrutinizing the matches. Plus they're going to be viewed by thousands of people. And I'm sure there's a clause that says if they exploit they get nothing.

11. Re: Bloodlines... Jul 31, 2011, 16:19 Frijoles
 
EYE was confusing as hell to me. Why are there two solo areas in the menu? I only spent about 30 minutes in it while I waited for Vampire to finish downloading. In that 30 minutes, I died many times. It seems like the NPCs keep spawning on whatever map I was on no matter how many I kill. And there didn't appear to be any hiding code since as soon as I stuck my head out from around the corner, they all came running.

I plan on going back to it after I've had enough of my crazy as shit vampire.

I have a legacy account, bought it before the game released. Think I played for like a day or two and never returned. I should sell it.

I'm hoping Settlers 7 Gold Edition goes on sale big soon. I've been itching to play some Settlers, but not at $40 itchin.

Keep in mind, it still has UbiShit always-on DRM. I've been burned by not having save games load. The game itself is meh. Loved the music though.

Have you purchased products with the ubi crazy DRM? I've purchased settlers 7 and I've lost internet connection for a few seconds, and the game complains and won't let me keep playing.

Same here, with Settlers 7. Had issues trying to load save games despite internet working fine. Fuck Ubisoft in all their holes. And yeah, I was very much looking forward to playing this game. No interest now.

Also, any new devs that are going with Ubi, fuck them too. It's not like it's going to be a surprise anymore when Ubisoft orders them to rape their game with DRM. I felt bad for the devs when this shit started happening, but not anymore.

I bought HoN when it came out, but quit due to the assholes. Is LoL any better? Are there co-op vs. AI? Seems like people doing that wouldn't be pricks quite as often.

Prez wrote on Jul 26, 2011, 09:02:
I've often wondered if this game was as bad as reviews suggested. It looked like just another Disciples game, which I loved.

It was both fun and annoying at the same time. The NPC was somewhat random, and I found that if I didn't kill it fast, it leveled up much faster and then wiped me out with little effort. I also tended to do the same build order of units on every map since the units that carried trees were so powerful. It was just a pain to get to them.

I dunno, it was fun enough for 8 hours. I doubt I'll ever return to it though.

I enjoyed Renaissance for 8 hours, according to Steam. I don't know if enjoyed is the right word though. I remember getting very frustrated with it. Yeah, I think I'll wait for a sale. I can't imagine putting 70 hours in to this type of game.
