News Comments > StarCraft II Overheating Bug

I was wondering why this was the only game my gtx275's fan was blasting at high speeds for. Ill have to try the new settings and see if the fan stops now. Whats worse, is the fan would blaze not in missions, but in the sp campaign on the ship only. Cantina, armory, so on.

He's an idiot. In my opinion he probably deserved to be fired whether he was or not. He's an arrogant prick. Always has been.

He's never been arrogant. That's just bullshit. His vision for games has just deteriorated to the point where he thinks that if he makes ANYTHING having to do with "social networks", it'll be the greatest thing in the world.

The man did design some of the best RPGs ever (admittedly with help). He's never been arrogant about it.

Creston

I actually agree with you on that. Ive met him twice and he never seemed cocky or arrogant to me. He actually always seemed quite approachable nice.

A little extreme there, but there is a reason I said I believe he was fired heh. His MMO wasnt really a hit and it took for ever (did it even release?) not to mention rebooted once during its development into a entirely new kind of game mechanic.

That probably didnt sit well with NC Im betting. But I dont obviously know any of the actual "facts" of his firing. I just suspect that those are reasons why he was probably let go.

Some people think they're junk, some people like them. That's why they're... dun dun dun... an option!

I love CEs... art books are my favorite too, so this one sounds nice. Hope it comes to the US.

Thank you for relaying the obvious. =P

Special Editions = More junk to collect dust in the basement.

I typically dont buy them unless its something WAY awesome in the game. Even Dragon Age SE didnt apeal to me. Most just dont. Though I do like the TINS they used to use a lot of the time. I picked a couple of those over the years.

"I can confirm that Firaxis has realigned its development resources in order to streamline its development process, reduce costs and maximize the overall performance the studio," 2K global PR director Markus Wilding

PR speak is devoid of humanity.

I was totally going to comment on how they like to use sugar coated words like "realigned" and "maximize performance" lol.

i tend to agree with steve jobs on bluray. people i know who work in the movie industry think that its a stop gap technology to something better because they are already shooting movies at much higher resolutions than 1080p. even 35mm film has more resolution than what current HDTV offers. i have scanned 35mm velvia film to 75 megapixels and people could not tell the difference between it and a medium format or digital source.

That's not what he's getting at (in fact, as you're getting at, film professionals have been shooting at far higher resolutions for far longer, as many of the restorations of old film prints will attest). By that logic, DVD is as much of a "stop gap technology" as Blu-Ray.

What Jobs is saying is that physical media for movies is irrelevant because he wants you to download movies from the iTunes Store. Never mind the fact that most of the "high-definition" content on the Store is relatively slapdash in terms of quality (720p at bitrates as low as 2Mbit and stereo sound); because Apple can be the be-all end-all gatekeeper to content, he thinks that is the way to go.

I completely agree with that. Most all of Jobs rejections seem to be based on knowledge of a future, or a desire to dominate a branch of something, or of course a combination of both.

Edit: Or better put. Most of his rejections of things are purely driven by an agenda.

Who do we thank for the Top Five Hot Girls playing video games? lol

LOL

What I found odd is that the first one (with Rock Band) ended with a kid showing up. I'm guessing a son or young brother.

Yeah totally. Well did you not notice the kid sitting behind her to? Kids all over and a naked chick playing drums. lol

I bought beat hazard at full price when it came out since I dug audiosurf (being they are both games using your music lib), but I have to say it was in a horrid state then. I havnt re-installed since then though I have seen it has been making lots of updates.
