Well, as some of you told me in other threads when I complained about no or wonky mouse/keyboard support in pc games: BUY A CONSOLE CONTROLLER! Isn't even Valve/Steam trying its very best to turn the pc into nothing but a console with better graphics by developing its own console controller and this big picture stuff?

Ah, whatever. Plenty of other games without consolitis on the market. Back to Divinity: Original Sin. Buy this instead of this console crap and send Microsoft and the XBone a message by doing so.

Wouldn't that be a cat-astrophe? She might even pussy out of the battle.

I think on this board people are mainly upset that it's multiplayer-only, and free to play.

Path of Exile is multiplayer only

And yet, like Prez, I played it all alone PvE.

I have UPlay, because I had to for Far Cry 3, but I got it through Steam, it installed as part of the game, and it adds no value

I don't like UPlay, but the one thing it does right is sort of actually adding value. You earn some points and can "buy" additional maps and gear for it. Of course this stuff should be unlockable from inside the game, so there should be no need for UPlay.

News Comments > Crytek to Repair Reputation with "Really High Quality Games"
8. Crytek to Repair Reputation with Aug 19, 2014, 09:42 El Pit
 
"Really high quality [multiplayer only online pay 2 win] games [for consoles]"

Or he could have said: "If only you players would have told us that you actually wanted HIGH QUALITY games, we would have of course delivered, but nobody told us." With these words, he pulls out a huge envelope which has written "Secret Formula for High Quality Games" on it from a drawer in his desk.

No, I really wish them good luck and hope they can make it. I liked their Crysis games 1 and 2 (haven't played 3 yet).

I know, MoreLuckThanSkill, they even arrested a reporter of our local news magazine and let him go after three hours. The problem is that the news guys very often are where "the action" is taking place (because we, the viewers, want to see "action" in our news, it's selling better this way), and that's very often why they get arrested. Of course, this does not justify to arrest e.g. camera or sound people who are because of their equipment obviously no potential rioting idiots.

And this is an advice you're getting from all those guys who have ever attended important soccer games in big stadiums: once the hooligans start firing up, RUN AWAY FROM THEM. Let them stand alone, so the officers can take care of them. Don't stand there, even applauding some arsoning fools. This way you become one of them in the eyes of the law. And yes, it works.

Right now the situation there is messed up. One side has to make the first step: either the authorities leave the city (unlikely, they're not allowed to let the violent part of the protesters just do whatever they want), or the peaceful fraction of this riot tells the idiots that they're on their own now and stays at home, so that everybody who is still outside can easily be taken care of. After that, find an appropriate way to protest. Most of all I hope that nobody (no officer, no PEACEFUL protester) gets hurt and that justice can be done. I hope that there can be a fair trial after all to find out what has led to the death of the young man. And I want all of those looters and violent rioters to stand in front of a judge, too.

jdreyer, blind on one eye...

Looting and molotov cocktails are an act of free speech for you? Or means of peaceful protest? You know what those protesters should do? Hire buses, drive to Washington, and ALL OF THEM should stand in front of the White House. Not throwing molotov cocktails, not even shouting anything, just standing there in complete silence (no interviews, nothing!) and waiting with lots of press around them... I would expect a non-violent and most likely useful reaction by the government. THAT is the way to do it. But looting and throwing molotov cocktails and attacking other cops is the most idiotic reaction possible. Let's all prove how peaceful we are by starting a riot. Yeah, sure, makes totally sense.

By the way, a topic like this with a headline "into the Black" is somehow...

Yup, I hate them. I want my game utterly complete for the original price I'm paying for it. If I need to buy the DLC, I'd much rather pirate them... which means I have to pirate the entire game in order for them to work... which means that buying the game so that I can play a clean game with working achievements would be stupid... which means that although I'd normally buy the game, DLC pushes me over the edge of pirating instead.

If we're not talking about day 1 DLC's but content that will gradually be developed and release months into release, I'm completely fine with that and I even support it if the game still interests me by that time -- which it rarely ever does, though.

Nope, day-1 DLCs are still the biggest scam the game industry has ever come up with and it's kinda curious why there hasn't been an all-out revolt.

The alternative to STEALING the game is to wait for the complete/ultimate/game of the year/whatever version including all the dlcs. Most of the distributors (exception: EA) release the complete versions of their games a year or so later at low prices. See - again no reason to steal stuff.

Still a rumor about Star Wars, but this news item last month makes it look that way.

Wonder how George feels about that, and if he had any say.

Speaking of revisionists, I got nervous a few weeks ago when Peter Jackson talked about going back and inserting more footage in Lord Of The Rings. Don't be a George, Peter!

George lost his mojo after Indy 3 IMO. That was 25 years ago!

George said that the original trilogy has been lost in its original form. And now, after he is out of Star Wars, we will get this "lost" version.

I love the original trilogy, and I am VERY happy that Star Wars is in new hands now. Clone Wars and the prequel trilogy convinced me that we would be better off with new Star Wars showrunners. Will Episode VII be great? Who knows. But at least now there is a chance that it can be good. JJ is going for lots of practical effects and real sets, so it seems he is doing a lot of things right. It might work in the end. We'll see.

Ehm... Big names in Wing Commander? Mark Hamill seems to be a very nice guy, but nowhere a big name in movie biz. Except for Star Wars, his career has been less then stellar (pun intended). And Rhys-Davies neither is a top star in Hollywood, but has been co-starring in some good movies (Raiders, Rings...) AND starred in a lot of cheap b- and c-movie productions. Both are not earning million(s) for (voice) acting.

As for the extra money raised, that's going to things like hiring big name voice actors (which they reckon could cost $20-30m)

I don't know much about producing games, but a bit about movie production. $20 to 30m for VOICE acting is A LOT. For this money, they could get Tom Hanks, Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, and Cameron Diaz. They all range between $5 and 15m (voice acting). You can get 10 to 15 non top tier hollywood stars for $20 to 30m like Nic Cage or Adam Sandler. If they go with third tier stars like e.g. Vin Diesel, they can hire 30 to 40 well known actors for that price. And I doubt that this is what they will do. I expect them to hire five or six well known actors and actresses in the $500,000 to 1m range and lots of other experienced but mostly unknown voice actors instead of hollywood stars.

News Comments > Design TF2 Merchandise, Profit
2. Re: Design TF2 Merchandise, Profit Aug 15, 2014, 13:03 El Pit
 
And all of this is soooo much cooler than working on Half-Life 3, Valve? Really? Gabe, move some desks to the H-L3 group and NAIL them there. Then glue some guys who would rather work on TF2 hats, updates for the DOA Steam OS, or the Steam controller which is now pretty much exactly the same as all those other console controllers to these chairs and tell them to work on H-L3 "or else".

Really, even Duke Nukem Forever has been released a few YEARS ago. If Star Citizen is released before H-L3, then we all know that Valve is no longer into designing games ever again. They rather buy indie developers with their semi-ready games, release those games, and then let the indie developer work on TF2 hats. Can it be? Is Chris Roberts superior in managing game development to Gabe and those Steam Pipes at Valve?

Then again, what could a company called Valve with a service called Steam produce but Vaporware? Hot wet air?

EDIT: Okay, I love my Steam. But it's really pissing me off that there is NO episode 3 and no H-L3 news. GamesCom is running, and what are the gaming News that Valve/Steam is serving us? They're letting users work on TF2 underwear. Great.
