The faces in the press leak looked like they had been snorting some sort of black cocaine. Did they fix that? I started to get distracted by it. 2 more hours until I'm off work to play.

News Comments > From Dust DRM Dust Up - Refunds Offered? [Updated]
14. Re: From Dust DRM Dust Up - Refunds Offered? Aug 18, 2011, 23:10 Frijoles
 
It is a poor port, but I'm enjoying it at least. I only paid $11 and figure I'll get about 4 hours out of it. Just make sure to turn off the mouse scroll thing. That's apparently fucking things up pretty bad (I turned mine off before even trying the game).

It's basically a tech demo.

News Comments > Driver: San Francisco DRM Relaxed

Not quite.

Both From Dust and Driver: San Francisco require a internet connection EVERY time you launch the game. (So the DRM still sucks)... but if you lose your internet connection after you launched... you can still play (until you exit... then you need an internet connection again to launch again).

As posted up a few comments, this was changed in From Dust. It now requires an always-on connection. In fact, they're giving refunds last I saw.

Edit: I was corrected below. Not always-on, just on launch. And after the game, apparently, to sync the save file.

1. Bastion Aug 18, 2011, 13:40 Frijoles
 
Bastion is fucking awesome. It made me a man. I wish I could pay the narrator to follow me around in real life and comment on everything I'm doing.

"He went to build a webpage, but used notepad like the programmers of old."
"His lunch went down smooth, like varnish on a new floor."

God that'd be awesome. Anyway, very fun game.

20. Re: Driver: San Francisco DRM Relaxed Aug 18, 2011, 13:35 Frijoles
 
Not only is From Dust always-on DRM, but it's glitchy (as expected). Took me about 15 minutes over multiple attempts to sync my savegames after playing the game. Settlers had the same issue. If it fails to sync, the next time you play, it just sits there until it's successful. So yeah, fuck you again Ubi. At least it was only $11.

As for the game, turn off the mouse scroll thing. Helps a whole hell of a lot. Or just buy Bastion instead.

I brought the sniper rifle up (yeah yeah, I got the press release) and it started swaying a bit.. and I bunched up and squealed, "It's Deus Ex!"

Game is awesome. I'm now trying not to touch the leaked version any further so I don't spoil it. But it sits there, beckoning me with its goodness.

Agree, it's fun. Now that's it's at 1.0, I'll put more time in to it. I didn't want to risk having my save game get wiped when it moved from beta to release.

- Passwords - people hated having to write down passwords for the terminals. Make it an auto-enter

I found a notepad of mine a few years ago that I kept near the computer for writing down Deus Ex passwords. Brought back a lot of good memories. I'm torn between having it automatically show it off to the side or something after finding it, vs. trying to remember or writing it down.

Does DE:HR use passwords and how do they handle it?

I don't ever sell my games (too lazy), so I'm still on board to purchase. The DRM comment has me nervous though. If they decided to add that shit, it'll drop to a bargain bin game. Maybe companies should get to that "This is a good amount of hype" phase and then stfu until release date.

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.
