I might play it some more to check out this patch. I quit the week before Christmas but have lots of points accumulated on my WoW Visa reward card now (at least four months of game time credit). I can send you a free 30 days if you want nin

I'm torn though...I have so much more free time without WoW in my life anymore.

$5 for Metro 2033 was too good to refuse, especially since it uses Steam so I just copy and pasted my key from the Gamersgate receipt into the STEAM activate new game dealie. Only about four hours left on the sale now though so get it quick if you want it.

A-10 on STEAM YES!!!

$60? Um, not a prayer.

Yeah, I waited to buy DCS: Black Hawk in the bargain bin for $20 and I still haven't really played it much. It has the activation/deactivation DRM though which I always hate. The STEAM page for A-10 doesn't say anything about 3rd party DRM though so maybe it doesn't have the same setup...either way I won't be paying that kind of money for it. I'll catch it in a good sale or the bargain bin maybe.

Please, please remake Populous or Powermonger. Thanks.

Seriously, Populous rebooted, I'd be happy with the same basic isometric view and gameplay with updated graphics and controls for modern day PC's. Heck, an indie dev could even remake Populous. Please?

I don't know maybe I haven't got to that loading screen yet but so far after about 7 hours of PC Portal 2 I have yet to see the loading screen saying not to turn off the console. Was it already patched or am I missing something? Maybe it's only for co-op since I haven't played co-op yet.

As far as loading screens/times goes you kids these days don't know how well you got it. Back in C64 days we easily waited 5-10 minutes watching big "EA" letters flash colors while a game loaded up. And then for a lot of the best games (Bard's tale, Ultimas) had to swap in floppies multiple times during gameplay.

News Comments > Portal 2 User Review Backlash
19. Re: Portal 2 User Review Backlash Apr 20, 2011, 12:04 Shok
 
I played it for 5+ hours last night and its one of the best PC games I've played in years. I have to admit I don't finish many PC games but the level detail, animation, sound effects, humor, and overall fun of Portal 2 will have me playing it till the last level.

Downrating a game on metacritic for petty reasons is childish. It's one thing if a game crashes a lot or has a bad design but to downrate because of the marketing campaign or because there are added features which you don't even have to use are in it is ridiculous.

You know, I've heard of that renderer for awhile now, but that's the first time I followed the link. My god...DX and UT both look outstanding.

There goes my weekend!

Thanks!


Re: UT online, I had an issue with an anti-cheating mod that downloaded from servers I was trying to connect to. I forget the name of the mod offhand but most servers have it. All I know is the latest d3d10 renderer version 23 didn't work but version 22 does so use that renderer if you want to play UT online. I thought it was slick how a game from 1999 auto-downloaded the anti-cheat mod and I didn't need to fuss with manually installing it. Also, I was running the GoG version of UT (v436) fyi.

I know I've never played anything from Epic that I thought was worth more than $20 out of the gate.

I agree except for two games. Unreal Tournament and the first Unreal I suppose. Back then everyone was ooohing and ahhing over graphics and the AI enemies [in Unreal] and how they rolled out of the way into cover. UT? I just played it this past weekend with the updated d3d10 renderer that's out there and it's still fun to play online or single player against bots.

I fired it up before work and looked around the menus some. Not too happy about the micro-transactions in it though. I never bought a TF2 DLC yet have to constantly keep downloading updates (on my slow link) which mostly just add DLC items. I hope Portal 2 isn't the same way but I doubt it.

The marketing campaign worked on me. I was putting off buying P2 until I saw Thursday that it may come out and be playable over the weekend. So I pulled the trigger and started the pre-load. It will be nice if it is playable a day early or something but no biggie if not. I've played more super meat boy this weekend and still haven't tried the Civ5 DLC I bought last week yet either so it's not like I don't have other games to keep me occupied.

I forgot to post yesterday that yesterday was exactly 10 years since I signed up on Blues! Wow that's a long time and doesn't seem possible. I know I don't have as many posts as others that have been here 10+ years but I still visit the site at least 5-6 times a week if not more.

Hmmm, I just looked at http://www.dailywritingtips.com/passed-vs-past/

and I guess I was wrong since it is being used as an adverb maybe since get is the verb? It still sounds wrong but whatever

Page 18 one of the panels says, "get past the turrets". Should be passed not past. Sorry to be a grammar nazi but silly mistakes like that bother me when I am reading...

From the game packs listing I think it's strange they have the arcade version and Atari 2600 version in the same packs. That's like packaging the blu-ray version of a movie with the VHS version...

You and me both. I realize it has console versions too but there is no Sony or Xbox license fees for the PC version so why is the PC version the same price as console versions? I can wait for x-mas sales...
