I would like to add a reequest for this patch to teach other game companies to run theirs like Blizzard.

Is pretty obvious that you dont play WoW.

I want Blood!
Too bad they never released the source code of it, so there are no mods for it. And since Atari and Monolith share the IP now, I doubt it will ever be released.
Too bad, one of the funniest game I've ever played.

News Comments > TF2 Cheats Disciplined
70. Re: TF2 Cheats Disciplined Mar 1, 2009, 18:41 Muscular Beaver
 
PC gamers using cheats to circumvent idiotic and childish console style achievements that, besides the natural low skill, gimp new players too.
Yup. Very bad offense! Hang em! Or better, force them to play on a console!

POS dumbed down game. Still waiting for someone to make a TFC mod for TF2. Until then it stays uninstalled. FF sucks.

BTW, theres a similar thing happening in Savage 2. People not being able to access good units. It totally destroys balance, gameplay and thus fun.
Whoever invented this unlocking and achievement crap in multiplayer needs to die a horrible death. It was prolly some dumbshit console freak.

Chivalry is far too slow and feels pretty sterile to me.
PVKII is an unbalanced POS and will drive you mad if you want fair games, but its a fun POS if you dont take it too seriously.

DRM only hurts sales. Nothing else.
For example I would never ever buy music with DRM because I also want to listen to it in my car and on generic MP3 players/computers.

Nice.
But I would be happier if they get some good support in WoW going before jumping to the next game. They even axed account phone support completely and now you have to wait 3+ days for a reply and cant talk to a supervisor anymore.

I am not going to pretend it was ZOMG BEST GAME EVAR! or anything, but Mass Effect was hardly meh. Pretty good actually.

Yeah, if you like dumbed down controls and gameplay, repetitive scenery (rooms), idiotic implementation of side missions and a game value of 10-20 hours.
Sorry, but for former BioWare standards, Mass Effect was far closer to meh than to pretty good or decent.

eRe4s3r,

I tried a few of the newer ones a few months back (24"s), and they all failed.
The Hyundai 241D had a pretty good black (for a LCD), but it had ghosting and flickering light textures when moving and also input lag.
The others all had shitty black. But the worst of all, the typical motion blur of LCDs is always there, no matter which one you buy.

I sent em all back and bought a used Sony GDM FW900 for only about half of a "good" TFT. The best CRT ever made. I love this thing and noticed how much better I play with it compared to a TFT.

As I read it in the past you can only use the cockpit mode if you use a lot of consolish helps with circles you have to fly through or some shit like that. And if you disable those helps you are only able to use a very idiotic cinematic cam far away from your plane.

Yep, sounds like a winner.

Is this still happening? Does it not happen for everyone?

Still happens. Already tested it with the new patch. I dont know anyone who doesnt have that problem, most simply dont notice it because they dont have a software firewall which always asks for new confirmation because its always a new file.

Im starting wow.exe directly now. Only way to fix it for now.

Still no DK nerf... WTF...

They also didnt fix the problem of the launcher being copied into the temp folder every time you start the game (some people reported having 100,000 copies of it in their folder and were running out of disc space).
At least the erratic movement bug is fixed (hopefully).

... TF2 and L4D would be utter shit

Compared to TFC TF2 is utter shit. The gameplay is so fucking dumbed down that its far more close to a console game than to a PC game.
I havent played L4D yet, but my friend who plays it since release said that its maybe a $30 game content wise and gets boring quickly since there are so few weapons, etc.

Hopefully they invest those 8 months into game polish and content. If the PC version is almost the same as the console version, you can be pretty sure thats its not a real PC game.

I’m really proud of our team, who are working very hard to make Dragon Age: Origins the biggest and most exciting BioWare game yet, and we will work to ensure it not only meets, but exceeds the expectations of our loyal audience of fans.

You will find that my expectations are pretty high. For example I expect it to be MUCH better than NWN or Mass Effect.

EDIT: Oh never mind. They are talking about "loyal audience of fans", aka fanboys. So they arent talking to me.

Btw, I didnt like Fallout 3 either. It felt as sterile as Oblivion and Morrowind - like the typical console port.

Dosnet matter unless they remove the damned activation bullshit. Down to one activation now sinse I upgraded my video card.

Uhm, are you saying the game activates automatically again after you change hardware? I got that some message that some hardware has changed and the game is no longer valid, but it still started normally.
If thats the case I would be down to 0 activations because I changed a lot fo hardware and remeber seeing that message at least 2 times.

Well, I just read a few posts on a different board where people were saying that Far Cry 2 has a far better story than Crysis.

As long as there are players who think such things, I really am not surprised that the developers dont see what they did wrong.

I really dont care if they do a sequel to this POS.

Like the sound effect of the flyby at the end of the video. This is definitely not pre-rendered.

That sound would be a huge improvement over the old sounds/sound engine. I really hope its not edited, but I doubt it.

Anyone remember the old Battlesounds 1.1 Addon for OFP? Now that were some awesome sounds. I hope this game comes close to them.
