A good game but already the community is dieing off. Too jittery for all but the best systems, lack of decent admins on the servers stopping griefers has consigned this to a "nuclear dawn" good idea but poor in support.

Shame as I loved NS1 and played NS2 a lot.

News Comments > Valve Living Room PCs Next Year?

This is going to cut too many corners in order to be commercially viable. Im guessing that it will need to run windows in order to use the most of the catalogue. Since size will be a factor im also guessing it will effectively be a glorified laptop interior.

Big question of AMD or intel really. Im guessing a deal with AMD, they need the business and probably have tons of low power llano esque components sat around collecting dust. So an AMD with a reasonable high detail 720 medium detail 1080 GPU.

It wont be powerful enough for most people. That being said it probably only needs to be optomised for 2 resolutions - 720 and 1080

You'll either love it or hate it. Personally it is a massive letdown for me. The interface tweaks are better now but if you think it is an improved sots1 then you will be disappointed.

Hivers are plain broken, they are frustrating to play once you are in the mid/end game due to the way the game forces you to participate in battles that are not necessarily your own.

It is still quite long winded to find a system with a certain spec and colonize it. The steps taken to reach, survey and colonize can be awkward for many races.

I havent tried the LOA yet but first indications are that the LOA are a micromanage race that needs babysitting.

I'd pass unless you have nothing else to play.

ipad only company? That should be fun printing, scanning, aving documents centrally, running new software out quickly etc.

We tried a room of ipads, it was a spectacular failure from a productivity point of view. They are TOOLS - you cant use a hammer for all tasks no matter how nice the hammer is.

depends how much you want to give. I bought 3 sets for $1 each and gifted them. Then I got the full pack myself for (as was) $5.65

I only had COH (no expansions) out of this so for $8.63 I got 3 gifts and a ton of games. Ive still not played DOTA 2 either yet.

modern times spoilt the game somewhat. The new buildings are simply overkill.

I wouldnt trust that VPN or whatever steam you are using. If you are convinced it is legit then just make sure it isnt coming up as east germany. You dont want the stasi after you.

News Comments > Diablo III PvP Details Coming "Very Soon"
16. Re: Diablo III PvP Details Coming Nov 28, 2012, 08:24 Armengar
 
I think ive been the sole defender of D3 having actually enjoyed playing it. That being said even im bored now. When an expansion comes out i'll probably have a sniff again (or wait for the sale).

I still stand by the fact that ive had a couple of hundred good play hours out of 30 which is damn good doing. Not put any money into the RMAH (or gold farmers). All my builds are budget ones (even made a few guides on the forums).

Still there are other games to play and after picking up KOTOR2 and borderlands 2 in the sale im off D3 for the time being.

It still might get funded but it is niche to begin with and I imagine all the people who really cared have already ponied up. TBH I think he was asking too much; for the money I have 3 games from the steam sale right now (KOTOR 2, Borderlands 2 and Deus Ex) . Plus the christmas steam sale is only a few weeks away.

As a massive elite, frontier (and yes I wanted to lover FE sooo sooo much) I still wont be bothering kickstarting this. I'll buy it on sale if it does come out though.

TLDR? 10 sold, 20 no sale

What we really need is a top 10 games being played on Steam list. I have a feeling all the keys bought at GMG would change up that list a bit.
The data was posted in reply, but here's the link:
http://store.steampowered.com/stats/
Anytime you want to know what games are being played by how many on steam (which if its a steamworks game is ALL copies of that game), how many total ppl are online with steam at that moment (6 million peak today), the content server stats, or hardware survey, just click that link

Good link, I had no idea that was there. There are more people playing garrys mod (17th!) than so many other games!

I missed the 75% KOTOR 2 (I have 1 already) but its still 50% so better than nothing. Loved 1 so its about time I played 2.

After NS2stats was released (229?) it was fairly obvious aliens were winning more and more matches. That being said, the opposite happens on tournament games.

I think the changes above should be CVARS so they can be tweaked wihtout delving into LUAs (which get updated or outmoded).
