Dangerdog - the impression I get is that the demo has been dumbed down quite a bit. If you look at screens of the UI for the game, there's bunch of inventories, controlling your weapons, plasmids, tonics, items, etc.

SoylentBob - this isn't a game engine. StreamBase handles the billing, accounting, support etc. aspect of their title while Simutronics HeroEngine handles the actual game technology and server processing. Two separate things entirely.

the cod 2 demo is not the final game. Supposedely, a lot of the demo games didn't have any AA on but the finals do.

Also, I often hear people mention how superior the pc version is to the x360 demo yet I haven't seen one review that has said that. Every review says it's just as good and even smoother in some parts. Just find that odd.

Futuristic soldier looks darn similar to Master Chief.

Riley, you sure they're predominantly an EA bitchfest? If you look at past issues, each one seems to have a different subject matter. This one just happens to be EA in a nutshell.

I just reactivated my account with hopes of continuing my hunter to higher level. Anyone have any recommendations for a good hunter class guide? I'm curious to know what are some good paths to take with the talent tree.

Not to sound cynical, but maybe because they actually don't want them? *shrug*. It'd be more tempting to move to Canada than Sweden, so giving them the latter option makes it less likely they'd take it is my guess.

Of course, on the flipside they may really want them in the dev headquarters. All speculation of course.

Glad to hear you're enjoying EA (seriously). It'd be a nice change of pace if they value their employees. Having experienced one of their other studios, I can't say I had the same treatment. I imagine most negativity comes from others who've had similar experiences.

I pretty much agree with what Creston wrote 2 posts below. He brings up a good point that I think others forget too often. The reason that consoles are so popular, and will continue to grow popular is because they are *EASY* to use.

Die-hard pc gamers, while definitely a growing segment, are no where near the amount of console gamers. The fact is, it's much easier for your average semi-tech saavy guy to go and get a console, play sports games, platformers, adventure games, rpg's, etc. online/offline out of the box, then have to fuck with drivers, bios settings, tweaking a game, etc. to be content with it (or chances are - they probably will be content with it as is and not get the full benefit of tweaking it like some others will).

This applies to anyone really that doesn't want to muck with the box. Consoles will always have this advantage over the PC, unless we unify how PC's are assembled (and we know how well that worked for Apple).

It amazes me that people get so pissed off about consoles. Can I ask Why? What pisses you off specifically? I can understand being pissed at developers who 'consolize' a game that goes to PC. But really, what pisses you off so bad that you have to bad mouth people that are defending essentially the same shit you are defending - a console.

Instead of drawing this arbitrary line of PC versus console, just assume that the PC is another console, just like the xbox, just like the PS2. Sure - it doesn't use the tv *gasp*, but the principals are the same when it comes to games. Just like the xbox, ps2, or any other system, it has it's own set of pros and cons. PC isn't the 'king', nor is any specific console. Sheesh.

If you don't like the xbox360 for what you perceive to be it's cons, then don't play it. Just like others will avoid the PC for its own set of cons...

"And I wish NCsoft would stop misrepresenting it as such. "

I don't see mention of it being claimed as an Massively multiplayer game. Where have you read otherwise on the official sites? The only ones I see claiming it as such are the press and other gamers.

You do see the page 2 and 3 links right? While it's a short interview, there's more than 3 questions asked.

The benchmark is set at 1024 x 768 I believe, and no anti aliasing. Not sure about AF though.

I ran it on the following system:
p4 3 gig
2 gigs of Ram
ATI 9800 XT Pro 256

I saw single digits a lot of the time, with it barely creeping into the mid teens. Got a score of around 2500 or so. Damn! But I have to say the demos are pretty as hell. I wasn't as impressed with the first one but the 2nd and 3rd ones almost looked like CG.

Man, any way you look at it, there's no 'prime' package to get. One package has day of defeat while the others don't. The other package has half life 2 on dvd while the others don't. I wish there was a way for me to get the collector's edition on CD *not* DVD and get day of defeat.

It's a post rendering effect which applies saturation on the bright portions of the render; guild wars, hitman 3, and prince of persia all have this effect. Makes the worlds softer.

Saw this at E3 next to our booth. It looked pretty nice on their big screen showing off the game trailers. Looked like a pretty detailed FPS with the 'bloom' effect that some newer games are using.

Assigned loot seemed to happen most of the time for when wreckage/treasure chests were opened. However, there were a few items that just didn't get assigned. Probably a bug?
