On PC Bulletstorm

An article on Ars Technica talks about issues with the PC edition of Bulletstorm, the just-released first-person shooter from Epic Games and People Can Fly. This offers some gripes about the PC edition of the game, talking about unreadable text after switching to widescreen mode, lack of in-game graphics adjustments, a framerate lock, the use of Games for Windows LIVE, and more. The good news is they describe how many of these issues can be addressed by messing around in the .ini files, which they describe as "weakly encrypted." They don't actually give details on what to change or how, but say: "The various unofficial forums online have great advice for different video card set-ups. Don't look for critical thoughts on the PC version on the official site, however, as those are getting locked," but a later article offers more tangible suggestions. Thanks Joker961.

A lot of the dialogue is really childish. There is a difference between playfully immature and straight up childish...it's the latter.
I'm not trying to be snarky when I say that turning off "Mature Dialog" makes the game a heck of a lot better. At first I thought the Rooster Teeth guys were exaggerating with the whole "ass maggot" thing, but no, that's really how the game's dialog goes. And the thing is that if they were trying to be over the top on dialog I really think they missed the mark, so the end result is that it comes off more as being juvenile.

Epic is encripting the .ini files now?.

Wow. Just wow.
Yeah, I don't get that either. I'm not sure how exactly they're encrypting it - I just use the editor like everyone else - but without the right tools it's just a blob of meaningless binary. It's the first time I've ever seen something like this on an Unreal Engine game.
