Nothing on the steam sale for me so far. Either ive hit critical mass now or the sales have been weak for me.

civil law also requires a much higher burden of proof. Getting that wrong can bankrupt both sides in a battle.

I still liked D3, it was good enough for what I wanted and I certainly got my monies worth. However, I cant be arsed with it now. Ive moved onto other games on my steam list so unless all my mates get into this for coop goodness I wont be bothering.

If they released this 6 months ago then sure, i'd have been up for it. Too much has passed now.

Noted that D2:LOD came about the same time afterwards and pretty much marked the "proper" D2 era.

News Comments > Al Lowe Leaves Replay: Sex Actually Involved

showing regular porn to a 16 year old might get you on the sex offenders register here in the UK.

Gay sex consent is 18, hetro 16 so in this case he would have been either sent down on a short sentence or probation. Either way in this particular case he would have been on the sex offenders register and no chance whatsoever of getting a job anywhere near children ever again. No government contracts would touch an ex sex offender and he's never be able to disclose this as a "spent" crime - he would ALWAYS have to declare it.

Oddly enough, the only way to get off the sex offenders register permanently in the UK is have a court mandated "new identity" such as if you are a witness to a MAJOR event (mob boss testify etc) or perhaps you mass murdered people and got released (such as the bulger case).

News Comments > Leaked Fallout 4 Details?
11. Re: Leaked Fallout 4 Details? Dec 12, 2013, 07:33 Armengar
 
I only recently completed F3 as it was a buggy wasteland of pain and suffering when I first tried. New vegas was great though and worked for me (bought in a steam sale so patched by then).

F3 now is playable but nowhere near as good as new vegas. I havent completed all of the DLC for FO:NV (again in a steam sale).

I did like some touches in F3 such as both forks of the bomb (good saves if only to set the bomb off and murder everyone in the tower afterwards).

I remember having an argument with someone over wine vs windows. My gist was he spent more on beefing his linux hardware to a level that ran games in wine than I did on a windows license (by a factor of 2 at least).

I could still dual boot to windows just for gaming if I liked. He still couldnt get it.

In my rather advancing ears anything above the daily background hiss/whine is fine Discrete audio would be fairly pointless for me. Hell 128k mp3 sound fine for me....

as for USB3, I have a USB3 external drive that I automatically backup onto and it does backup a lot faster than USB2. In fact it restores slower (as I haven't baked the usb3 drivers into my W7 bartPE yet so im stuck with USB2 restores)

the irony is, this could work against them. If the original case does get dismissed then all the evidence with it goes.

PC + long HDMI cable + wireless controller/mouse/kb is surely better than a streamed solution?

News Comments > Natural Selection 2 Patch Next Week
4. Re: Natural Selection 2 Patch Next Week Sep 14, 2013, 13:55 Armengar
 
They had a perfectly reasonable game. It needed a few fixes. Then, at build 250 they decided to change direction in a huge way with the alien commander. since then they have added more and more content without fixing existing bugs whilst introducing more and more.

2 patches ago (same day as the free weekend) they release what can only be described as a "kick in the nads" patch that pretty much halved peoples FPS. And it wasn't though people were hardly having a great time getting decent FPS to begin with. The forums were flooded with WTFs. CTDs ahoy, glitches in movement, disconnects, servers bogging down etc.

It was a *major* mistake running their own engine- dynamic infestation or not - as it hasn't really worked. You need a powerhouse system to run a decent settings throughout a full game. Most people who don't have decent i5 or i7 systems are doomed to powerpoint mode late game. Server hardware is even worse, you need a 4ghz+ monster to get a decent >18 player server up. Any more and late game falls to pieces. What sort of game needs an OC *server* to get the best out of it?

Add to that inherent mouse lag, micro stutters, intolerable load times and this game is rapidly going down the pan.

The devs may well be decent guys but they know feck all about designing a commercial product. As a rabid NS1 fan and a fan of NS2 ive given up playing this now as it isn't fun to play.

News Comments > Blizzard: Killing Diablo III Auction House Would be "Complicated" (By Activision?)

I dont understand the constant venom either. Oh look a D3 thread. full of venom and troll.

If you dont like something then dont play it. There is a massive difference between constructive criticism and downright shit-mongering.

It isnt like people didnt know about the always on or RMAH or AH. If you didnt like it then either dont play, dont use AH or dont use RMAH. Ive never needed to use the RMAH but I have used the AH a lot - especially for reduced level items as described below. Ive also used a lot of online calculators to make cheap crap gear fit into a character to make it powerful.

A great metagame for me. Now ive moved on as im bored - very simple. At the end of the day it is a computer game.

News Comments > Natural Selection 2 Expansion Released; Free Weekend Underway
13. Re: Natural Selection 2 Expansion Released; Free Weekend Underway Aug 31, 2013, 14:38 Armengar
 
I'll post a link to this thread from the main boards. I started to lose interst after patch 249. The latest couple of patches have made the game confusing and (quite frankly) unplayable for me. UWE are a great team but they change fundamental things in one patch without any communication on it, then change again a week later. All this breaks the mods and pisses some people off (who dont have time to relearn.)

agreed that it is good to evolve but not without reason. As you say the tutorial is borked so god help newbies.

What ever happened to the old crew such as warspite (or was it warpig)? I miss his tales of floating on lakes of excrement (he was a waste engineer i believe). Not many old timers left.

News Comments > Diablo III 2.0 Details
23. Re: Diablo III 2.0 Details Aug 29, 2013, 17:35 Armengar
 
I never defended always on, it has never been an issue for me though. I can count on one hand the d/c ive had. That being said i dont play d3 anymore as ive simply moved on. 4 lvl 60s was my limit.

I might look at the expansion again but there are too many other games to play now. For the 30 i paid it has certainly been worth it. For the record no RMAH used.

Im not a blizzard fan (as ive been accused by some hating-for-noreason people) never played wow, sc or sc2.
