News Comments > Thief 4 In "Good Shape"
31. Re: Thief 4 In Nov 28, 2009, 10:54 Shok
 
Splinter Cell: chaos theory was basically Thief gameplay in modern times. The objectives were'nt to steal things but it had the cool gadgets like sticky cameras and such for sneaking around the levels.

Without the archery/blackjack weapon mechanics and medieval setting I think Thief would just end up feeling like I was playing another Splinter cell type game.

No thanks, I'm done fighting crowds on black friday, especially at those tiny gamestops. I can see it now, Soccer moms clogging up the aisles asking the gamestop dweebs to find games with butchered up names because they don't know what the hell they are supposed to be buying. And then asking a million questions about the stupid game while everyone waits in line after them rolling their eyes.

Nope, I get up around 9 or 10 and go to a few stores. If they still have what I want I get it, if not, no big deal.

Dunno about the movie but the book was a good read. It's by the same author of "No country for old men" (which I saw as a movie and didn't read, ironically.)

I guess I'll get Dragon Age eventually but not any DLC. I read that once you purchase any DLC for it that it requires an internet connection to play. Can someone verify?

5. Another port to open Nov 11, 2009, 13:49 Shok
 
If you have a tight firewall you'll most likely need to open a port to connect via Battle.net. I know I had to earlier this year when I made the switch. I don't remember what port off hand though.

Thankfully, I've been WoW free now going on 72 days and hopefully won't relapse.

News Comments > New FRAPS Adds Win7 Support
7. Re: New FRAPS Adds Win7 Support Nov 7, 2009, 17:59 Shok
 
I'm a gamer and I use Win7 x64. It works fine for me on every game I've tried running. I even have Thief 2 working perfect.

Good luck living in the past. Kind of reminds me of when everyone refused to game in Windows and vowed to stay in DOS.

Have you tried the remake? I downloaded it a while ago and couldn't get into it since it was still a 2d cockpit but it does remain pretty faithful to the original:

http://privateer.sourceforge.net/

Other than that I can't really think of anything. Maybe Freespace 2 for the combat part but I haven't played it enough to know if it has missions like Privateer did.

Yeah I just see a 360 box in that picture. They could have had the ultimate DRM with a PC version though; bundle that USB drive and make it a dongle

It uses Ogre3d (http://www.ogre3d.org/) for its graphic engine. What a long way that open source 3d engine has come.

Haha, agreed. Maybe that's what Ubisoft thinks PC gamers are like though.

I can envision consoles actually having RTS games if this kind of input device goes mainstream.

@Frosty:

after visiting a website or opening a file containing a trojan virus.

I take it reading comprehension isn't your strong point or you would understand Blizzard can't control stupid people/kids downloading smiley browser addons and whatnot and infecting their computers with trojans.

Maybe I'm the only one that thinks the graphics look like crap?

No, it's not you. I've said this before in another thread on another trailer for this game.

It's a console port. If the controls and interface don't suck on the PC I will be surprised...

Wow 10 years since EQ was released and they're still releasing expansions. Lol I wonder if you can still kill Lockjaw in South Ro? and get a lockjaw vest. I'll never forget some game experiences...and after 10 years there's got to be like 10 million Lockjaw vests out there rofl!

I took advantage of the pre-order special gogamer had a few weeks ago for $30 on this game. It's gotten decent reviews so far so I'm glad I pre-ordered.

What was that gameplay footage from? The Wii? Seriously, those graphics looked like something from the dreamcast. Ughh.
