News Comments > Blizzard Acknowledges Diablo III Item Duping
29. Re: Blizzard Acknowledges Diablo III Item Duping Mar 27, 2013, 08:08 Armengar
 
usual haters and trolls.

Seriously if you dont like it dont play it. I liked D3 and I played it. Got bored and moved on. Occasionally I fire it up and have a game with some friends.

It isnt like blizzard werent up front with the always on DRM. Barring a couple of hours on the first night ive not had any issues (outside my own internet connection) stopping me from playing.

I dont really care that it is an online only game. Most of my games are online only (in a way) since they are multiplayer ones.

god mode was patched out fairly quickly and the dupes arent RAMPANT dupes just the odd batch. It was worse on D2 when you could leave your PC to roll an item for you. I still remember generating a whirlwind mana/life leech weapon for my barbarian. you dont seriously think that a piece of software can be 100% bug proof do you?

News Comments > Evening Mobilization

no idea what the problem is.

wp8 support runs out in 18 months. so when the "service pack" wp8.1 is released then THAT will have 18 months. When the original 18 months support on wp8 has expired people will either have to update their devices to 18.1 or have no support.

this happens on ALL MS products. When the product is EOL or no further SPs are planned then it is either EOLd or extended support kicks in (look at mobile 5.0 - still on extended support for a few years yet whereas wm6 stopped this year).

It simply means you either update to teh next SP or dont get support. It has nothing to do with being canned.

Im assuming the casino compensated the high rollers as I thought poker match staked player money vs player money with the casino taking a percentage of buy in.

windows 8 is a steaming pile of turd. Good luck using it on a trackpad with a huge start menu. And from an "educate the user" point of view it is awful too. Thank god I can exercise "downgrade rights" at work.

News Comments > Max Payne 3 Steam CD Keys Exhausted
30. Re: Max Payne 3 Steam CD Keys Exhausted Mar 11, 2013, 06:30 Armengar
 
There's a "<press Enter logo> Skip" icon in the lower right corner of cutscenes once the next level has loaded in the background. The game used cutscenes to hide loading screens.

Me and my friends couldnt figure out why I could skip and they couldnt - took a while to figure I had an SSD with the game on and they didnt so we guessed it was a "hide the loading screen".

on the mouse problem, I recently had the same on my logitech mx518. It was one of the solder pads that the microswitch was soldered too, it had broke away. After a bit of scratching around the track to expose some fresh copper, I simply resoldered the microswitch as voila! fixed mouse.

Echoing below. NS2 probably the main reason I have so many unplayed Christmas steam sale games. Loving it.

8. Re: Sword of the Stars: The Pit and Demo Released Feb 23, 2013, 09:28 Armengar
 
Believe you me I stuck with it (and was active in the forums) till the last major patches. It still is too clunky and can never be fixed. Hivers are unplayable due to forced combat with gated systems. The new race has mental micro management issues when coordinating large LV fleets.

It is too much work to play. I think the ui was coded by a sage accountant.

Probably rose tinted glasses. Asherons call was brilliant but I think a retro release would look a fair bit dated.

SOTS2 was a train wreck for me. SOTS1 was great in comparison the sequel was clunky and bugged to hell. Until I see great reviews I can't even be arsed downloading the demo; too many other unplayed steam sale games.

Nah, too many other games on my list. Might check them out on steam sales depending on whatever DRM they have cooked up then.

vietnam era aircraft were rubbish though so I cant see it being fun if accurate. Mig 17 19 and 21 were woeful at best.

I don't think he's claiming that game controllers are as effective as Kb/M, that in direct competition they would match or better us. His bullshit argument is that controllers are so much more popular, not that they're so much better.

Well if you have no choice of course it will be more popular on a console. If KB/mouse was supported in all XBOX 360 and PS3 games (properly, I am aware of the support options for PS3) then im sure a massive proportion would switch immediately as the skill gap would polarise.

what an asshat.

How about get a game and open it to console and PC (TF2 is rife for plucking) and see how good the console controllers are vs KB/mouse. dont get me wrong i'm sure there are people who are excellent on controller FPS but take the "average" controller vs "average" KB/mouse and im sure there will be a lot of whiners on consoles.

Steam online players dont seem to suggest FPS is dead on PCs either.

5. New asteroid detector? Feb 18, 2013, 11:13 Armengar
 
Why bother with an asteroid detector? It isnt like we can do anything useful about them. They either burn up or obliterate the earth. Pretty much the only options with our firepower.
