News Comments > Deus Ex: Human Revolution E3 2010 Trailer
17. Re: Deus Ex: Human Revolution E3 2010 Trailer Jun 4, 2010, 22:25 Tomas
 
There's a lot of info out there about the game. The short version is that most of the comments and concerns in here aren't accurate, but I'll let everyone find all the details on their own since I'm lazy. =) A few notes though...

I find the trailer a lot more Cyberpunk than Matrix. I have a hard time not assuming that the 2027 date isn't a nod to Cyberpunk. If I had to guess I'd assume most of you guys are younger and don't even know what Cyberpunk is though...

There is an option to not kill in most cases from what I've heard. This, however, will leave the player dealing with things like guards waking up knocked out guards etc. So while it appears that will be an option, it may make the game really tough in some cases.

Anyhow, I'm getting sort of excited. There are things I'm not at all happy about (like no location specific damage - there was nothing cooler than my first play through of Deus Ex when I had both my legs taken out and I was dragging myself across the field under the statue of liberty...), but I'm going to reserve my comments until a bit more info comes out.

News Comments > Blizzard on DRM
13. Re: Blizzard on DRM May 27, 2010, 02:00 Tomas
 
I've never really understood why achievements matter to people. Sure, when I get one I think, "Oh neat, I should get more!" But then I think to myself...why do I care about this. You get an achievement for...playing the game? Shouldn't the more exciting part be the actual playing? If a game tells me I need to get achievements to feel like I'm having fun, then maybe the game isn't that fun at all.

Anyhow, and yeah, his whole statement is completely invalidated by the fact that you have to have your connection to play their game at all. Well, those of us who buy it will anyhow. Those who just pirate it will enjoy their LAN games just fine with or without their internet connection.

News Comments > Palladium Books sues Trion Worlds
10. Re: Palladium Books sues Trion Worlds May 12, 2010, 18:28 Tomas
 
I think the lawsuit might have some feet. I know when I saw the name of the game I immediately thought it was Rifts but that someone had simply made a typing mistake. Unless there are a lot of competing products using the Rift(s) name then their claim might actually hold up.

News Comments > Sniper: Ghost Warrior Trailer
2. Re: Sniper: Ghost Warrior Trailer Apr 24, 2010, 22:33 Tomas
 
I haven't watched the video, but I'm remembering something about how the game is about 50% snipery and 50% run and gun. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, in fairness I haven't really followed the game development much, but I think I read that somewhere. Might explain why this video doesn't appear snipery. =)

Fantastic article! Wish I could afford the $427 book. Hopefully we have a copy at a nearby library.

Why don't they just do like most game companies? Have the PR department write the review FOR the magazine so that it is done exactly how the software company wants. UBI and EA do it.

I wish you were joking, but haven't experienced this all first hand I can affirm that this sort of thing happens far too often. Some companies require that they have final say on reviews as well - so they basically come in and change things the reviewer wanted to say to paint them in the light they want. Sure, this isn't always happening or we'd never see bad reviews, but it does happen more than people think.

edit: forgot my quote...heh

News Comments > Mount & Blade: Warband Patch
5. Re: Mount & Blade: Warband Patch Apr 4, 2010, 19:28 Tomas
 
The mods for the original Mount&Blade were fantastic. The developer takes a lot of time to make sure it is very moddable and it showed. I'm sure Warband is no different. Oh, and yeah, bugs and all aside the game is fantastic. I love it. MP is better than I expected as well.

News Comments > Heroes of Newerth Open Beta This Week
6. Re: Heroes of Newerth Open Beta This Week Mar 29, 2010, 06:18 Tomas
 
Frankly I don't much care for these types of games, but everyone I know who likes them is loving HoN and bugs me ad nauseam to play it with them.

Had to put this in here; it was starting to sound like a LoL shills' festival.

News Comments > Mount & Blade: Warband Preorders Get Beta Access
3. Re: Mount & Blade: Warband Preorders Get Beta Access Mar 24, 2010, 02:46 Tomas
 
Wow, totally got to disagree (edit: w/Caveman). I absolutely LOVE Mount&Blade. Best 7 bucks I ever spent (bought in LONG ago...I think it was 7 bucks) and I'll be buying the new Warband version the day it drops. The multiplayer beta is amazing fun even with the bugs and all. I can see why some people won't like it, but really...if this is on of the worst game you've ever played I think you need to play some more games.

News Comments > The Witcher 2 Trailer
30. Re: The Witcher 2 Trailer Mar 23, 2010, 22:46 Tomas
 
Loved the Witcher. Had to try it a second time though to get into it. I think having a PC that could run it well made all the difference. Glad I did get into it though as it ended up being one of my favorite games from last year (that I played, not year of release). The Witcher 2 is now an auto buy for me. Even if it's not as good as #1 I feel it will be worth it just to support these guys for the good times in the first game which I got for so cheap having not looked into it until long after the initial release.

News Comments > ME2 Appearance Pack Next Week
12. Re: ME2 Appearance Pack Next Week Mar 20, 2010, 21:41 Tomas
 
In fairness I'll note along with my snore that I'm happy to see DLC like this because I don't care enough to even bother to pirate it. Personally I'd rather buy a real expansion and I think DLC is probably the most scummy thing I've seen out of the gaming industry in a while, but I realize some people love to waste money on things with little or no value. In the past things like this would have been just patched in for free by developers who cared about their fans. If that were the case here, a patch, with a few new outfits I'd probably say something like, "Oh, cool, they added a few new outfits along with the fixes. It's nice to see devs that care about their game and the fans." But as we already know, that's not what is happening.

News Comments > No PC Splinter Cell Conviction Demo
21. Re: No PC Splinter Cell Conviction Demo Mar 18, 2010, 02:33 Tomas
 
This argument is bordering on lame, but there's a lot more to consider like the install base of box consoles and PCs. I'm pretty sure it's a safe bet to say there are a LOT more people with computers than consoles, and let's not forget that even the console pirates have to use PCs (generally) to grab their free games. Either way...there's a whole lot of data being left out of this argument and in the end, it's the PC users that are getting boned.

News Comments > No PC Splinter Cell Conviction Demo
14. Re: No PC Splinter Cell Conviction Demo Mar 18, 2010, 00:22 Tomas
 
Guessing here, but I imagine this is because the demo would have to include the DRM or it would make it more easily crackable. Including the DRM would lose them sales as the negative feedback would pour out and thus, no demo for PC users.

Ubi is dead. At least to me. Hopefully soon for everyone.

What do you call a whore who pays her clients afterward?

Yep, a PC gamer.

Possible considering they will probably just use the old tech and make some engine upgrades. Frankly if that's all it is and they pack it with a great story I'm sold. Hopefully they don't do something ridiculous like Ubi is doing in the mean time...

News Comments > EA Server Outage
13. Re: EA Server Outage Mar 11, 2010, 03:33 Tomas
 
*sigh* I hope the PC market figures itself out pretty soon. It's like we're going backwards at a horrendous speed in hopes of crashing and burning as soon as possible. What happened to the days where we had dedicated servers being hosted by loyal fans who actually liked the companies they bought games for and would devote not only their time, but their own personal property to support those good companies? Geez, it's like everyone has gone mad.

News Comments > New Mass Effect 2 Weapon on the Cerberus Network
10. Re: New Mass Effect 2 Weapon on the Cerberus Network Mar 9, 2010, 18:37 Tomas
 
Lame. I really don't see what's great about a new weapon or armor once all of us have already finished the game. I mean, sure, it's free, but it's more like...why didn't we have that item when we actually played? Wouldn't it have been more useful? I hate to be a whiner, but seriously I'm not understanding the flow of logic on their DLC so far. I have absolutely 0% interest in booting up the game again just to try out a new weapon.

Anyone know what this means for The Witcher 2? I hope it doesn't adversely affect things. Wish I was more up to date on the community gossip.
