I hope they have an option to save video only to the local hard drive vice the STEAM cloud though. My connection is slow and I doubt I would use vidcap if it always had to be saved to the cloud.

When it comes to the dying genre of flight sims my reservations about DRM relax just a little. I really don't want to see flight sims gone from the market and replaced with console ports of fly-on-rails eye candy kiddie games.

Don't get me wrong though, I will never buy any game with DRM that leaves CPU hogging processes running that don't uninstall when the game is uninstalled.

Hmmm that SteamCalculator doesn't work for me. Was just curious how much all the games I have add up to...

I remember when 3D support in a game meant it needed a graphics accelerator to run.

The 3D fad shall pass, but not before emptying many a wallet.

No place to go BUT up imo. I mean, how can it get any worse? Just clone steam, or buy them.

Bahahaha! This is Microsoft we are talking about. It could get a lot worse. They could integrate it into Windows 8. Or add some bullshit code that ties the game to your specific hardware. Or add a subscription like Xbox live...

Dragon Rising also had some great trailers and dev commentary videos hyping the game. But the AI turned out to be dogshit. They aren't getting my money this time, especially since the first game is still buggy.

Best modern RTS out there, but I miss the lack of a story mode

Notwithstanding bleeding edge graphics, AI War: Fleet Command & Light of the Spire expansion gets my vote for best modern RTS out there. The AI is just incredible. To be fair though it is only a co-op multiplayer game and not a full pvp RTS.

Finally I can hit F12 instead of Print Screen.
Eh? I would rather it be print screen because well... its a PRINT SCREEN key.

Well, in DOS at least, that key dumped the text mode screen to LPT1 (printer port) but I could see your reasoning if it was named the "screenshot" key.

Dragon Rising has horrible team and enemy AI not to mention many other problems. It was one of the worst purchases I ever made. If codemasters had supported dragon rising with patches and whatnot maybe I would consider this sequel. About the only thing they did right was all the media hype and since they do such good marketing I'm sure this sequel will sell as well too. Hell, the fad these days is military FPS games so I'm positive this crap will sell.

I don't know how anyone plays EVE on a modern display. The text is tiny and there is no way short of playing in a butt-ugly resolution to fix them. I was stunned a few weeks ago when I did another trial of this game and it still had this problem.

Is a UI with adjustable font sizes really that difficult???

News Comments > Steamships Ahoy - AI War: Light of the Spire

I bought the base game back when it was on a 1 day sale during the holidays and just got around to learning how to play it in the last week. Learning curve is very very steep, but once I got it it's been a blast...and I am terrible at RTS games in general. I bought all the expansions via their website the other night. No DRM and you can even play without steam if you want since the keys activate both in and outside of steam (and both). The only thing I don't like is the length of games. I would rather start a new game than load a save game and try to get back into a game I played the day before. This expansion does add a pure tower defense type of game mode though so I'll have to try that next...

Granted Portal was a nice little 2.5 hr puzzle game I can't believe the hype Portal 2 is getting and I'm not going to get all excited about another 3 hour of Portal puzzles! I want Gordon back dammit, why did they have to make us wait so fucking long for their final episode or ANYTHING! Go push out another Left for Dead, go do another Portal whatever! Half Life made Valve who they are and the fact they can't even give us a episode in 3 fuckin' years is just sad.

Valve doesn't need to make another game, ever, with the cash cow they have called STEAM.

I'm tempted to log my badass monk (feign death pulling ftw) back in just to experience Kunark and Velious expansions again...those were EQ golden days there. I'm sure after the first few zone loads and mental comparisons to an easier WoW, I will quit but atleast it would be nice to see what all has changed in the UI and whatnot...

62. why there was no demo Feb 12, 2011, 11:32 Shok
 
People forget what happened with the demo for the original Crysis. It was hacked.

That's my guess for why they didn't release one this time around, or it certainly was a factor in their decisions...
