4. If nothing else.... Jan 6, 2009, 11:47 Nighthawk
At least we've got someone looking into the whole damn issue, not just letting it happen.
I wonder what set it off, probably some kid who's parent works for the FTC...not that I have any issues with that.

Another movie game??
Amusingly enough, my previous comments about these (which I think was about the Wanted game) still apply.
I've never heard of ANY game (that was supposed to) have a conjunctional release with the movie being any good.
Spiderman was the only one I was bitten by.
How was the Bond game?

Free when you install GameTap, not free like you can download it and install it (like the 1st episode)

Should we consider this another point in favour of piracy?

Are they really that hard up for space because of all the penis creatures in the game?
You would think they would have this problem well in hand when the situation arose in the first place.

25. Free Releases? Oct 8, 2008, 18:06 Nighthawk
It would be nice to see them release the games for free (like what's been happening lately with Midway).
I think they've released Ground Control already, and I would love to have AvP2 and the Homeworld games...

12. Lucasarts doesn't care about PC Oct 6, 2008, 17:25 Nighthawk
BioWare sure, maybe, LucasArts, maybe, both of them 5 years ago and I'd get excited, however, both of them have snubbed their noses at the platform that brought them into existence.
I'm expecting trash, a poorly designed console wannabe.

Note: By snubbed their noses I don't mean ignored us completely, however, we've always come last to both of them...shame really.

39. Thanks Bethesda Oct 2, 2008, 06:22 Nighthawk
I'm glad someone is listening to the community, and I do hope they get the sales that are much deserving of this stance.
Unfortunately, I'm sure that, because of the lack of DRM there will be rampant piracy of this game...
- No demo
- Costs too much
- Wanted to try it first
- I hate Bethesda

/pre-ordered the collectors edition

News Comments > $6M WoW Glider Judgment
25. Just to clarify Oct 1, 2008, 14:21 Nighthawk
My issue with glider isn't the players that use it to bot up to lv60/70 or wherever they want to be at, avoiding the level grind, my issue is that (and MDY HAS to realize this) the gold spammers, powerlevel spammers they are (partially) responsible for account theft (to shard items and sell the gold), in game spam, and possibly email spam (anyone validate?) use glider for their own means, and taking the enjoyment out of the game for normal players.

19. Proof or it doesn't happen Oct 1, 2008, 13:53 Nighthawk
Verno - Step up and proove it.

As for the judgement, good, it's like Mingus said, they played with fire and got burnt.
It's affected every player whether they realize it or not, automated bot running from mining node to mining node, doing nothing but harvesting.
Not that this matters, since they open sourced it not, it won't go away...

72. What really kills me.... Sep 15, 2008, 12:26 Nighthawk
Is that people here, not everyone, and hopefully not MOST of them, say things like "I don't like the DRM so I'm not going to buy the game, I'll just download it.

Are you trying to impress someone? No, you're trying to justify nothing more than theft, veiled in protest.
Here's a concept to you, if you don't like the DRM, don't play the game, don't download it, don't pirate it, you're not fooling anyone trying to justify piracy as a protest.

I didn't like the idea of copy protection, but I wanted the game, I picked it up.
Ozmodan also had the right idea, buy the game, download the ISO, problem solved, you're supporting the dev team (which you should if you want the game) but doing away with the DRM.
Someone will do the math, see the ungodly ammount of ISO's downloaded, but also see the high sales and MAYBE figure it out.
/not likely EA, but someone else

wtf_man - then don't buy the game, it's simple.

1. EA Dark Knight Game?? Aug 8, 2008, 22:16 Nighthawk
I can see it already, a poor PC port of a console game that's linear, with crappy graphics and no support.

Sounds craptacular to me!

/would still sell
//EA and crappy movie games can suck it.

News Comments > New Grimm Episode
6. Re: Is anyone really going to pay for this? Aug 7, 2008, 17:15 Nighthawk
Since episode 1 they've now set it up so you can't get the standalone version for free, you MUST install gametap.
Combine that with the AMD duel core crash bug, and the mediocre gameplay, and I've abandoned hope.

/starting to consider the industry wants PC's to stop gaming.

34. A glimmer of hope Aug 2, 2008, 06:00 Nighthawk
This could actually end up being a blessing in disguise if it gets released open source.
Blizz gets the code and knows how it operates, modifies the game to look for that, and boots the client, 3 strikes and you're banned, problem solved.

9. Interesting...and unstable Jul 31, 2008, 14:41 Nighthawk
It's alright, run around turning the happy story dark, however I've had some problems with the stability.
The into movie crashed, had to restart, and now I'm getting freezing sometimes, with no real reasoning.

Oh yeah, for those that have the same problems I'm running AMD, ATI, and Sound Blaster

Caveman - So because you don't agree with something they're doing you're going to steal it?
What kind of car do you drive? Does it work the same way?
People like you disgust me, if you don't like what they're doing with it, go without it...

Even if this game is boring as hell, it's still revolutionary in terms of what it's trying to do.
Just from the videos and gameplay footage it looks like it's going to be a lot of fun.

News Comments > Wanted: The Game
1. Quality Jul 16, 2008, 16:50 Nighthawk
First, I want to say that I think that making games to go with the movie is a good idea, everyone who likes the movie wants to be a part of it, so the idea is to get the game.
However, the handfull of "Movie Games" (not to be confused with Game Movies, where the game came first) that I've played or demo'd or looked at the box all look the same.
It's almost always 3rd person, console designed, and asscrapular!
Before anyone else comments, yes I'm sure there are a few good ones, but it's like rap music, once in a while a good thing comes along, but the rest is usually crap.

Get some originality, work with a real design team.

/sounds like Max Payne for 08
