News Comments > Rise of the Tomb Raider Next Month

OooOoH, exclusivity! Like, it would actually convince me to go out and buy a damn console for 1 f**kin game. Get real.

I'll wait it out patiently, get extra HD content, packs, DLCs thrown in and whatever, just for not buying it on console early.

News Comments > The Witcher III Graphics Mod
11. Re: The Witcher III Graphics Mod Dec 25, 2015, 23:02 Xero
 
I just picked this game up today on Steam and had no idea about this mod. The game already looks mind blowing and I can run all the cool hair effects. Not sure I want to push it though. I'm single card 970gtx and it's running everything on Ultra pretty damn solid so far. Got to say, it's definitely up there with technological achievements in a game. So much damn detail. Makes me feel like I'm playing the fantasy world version of GTA5.
I've yet to get anywhere pretty much though to give my thoughts on the game though.

News Comments > Mafia 3 Footage
5. Re: Mafia 3 Footage Dec 19, 2015, 15:36 Xero
 
Looks awesome! I'm so happy to see this series always standing up on it's own despite some people throwing out the GTA comparisons to it and what not.
To me, Mafia always held up on it's own due to the art direction, awesome storyline, and time period. I also always felt it's shootouts and firefights were also highly enjoyable in many instances within the first two games. This one looks like it will be no different.
Looking forward to it!

News Comments > Just Cause 3 Patch Friday
2. Re: Just Cause 3 Patch Friday Dec 16, 2015, 20:44 Xero
 
Can anyone chime in if this game is worth it? Was a big fan of Mad Max. Not so big of a fan of Just Cause 1 or 2 but I think 2 had potential despite just not getting into it. Maybe I had too many games going on at the time I tried it.
But the price is dropping on it and wondering if worth a buy?

News Comments > Free Giants: Citizen Kabuto
10. Re: Free Giants: Citizen Kabuto Dec 12, 2015, 01:23 Xero
 
Oh, and with that said, I would totally be down for a remake of practically the same game, with less bugs and of course updated graphics/tech to take advantage of today's hardware.

The game had all the fun elements of a 3rd person run and gun shooter with some neat, easy strategy elements mixed in at various times. Multi was a blast too.

8. Re: Free Giants: Citizen Kabuto Dec 12, 2015, 01:21 Xero
 
The game kind of went from tons of fun playing Meccs, to OK/frustrating as the Sea Reaper, and then by the time you got to play the Giant, you were just kind of restless and wanted to grow the Giant to destroy everything in it's path. The issue was that wait period of playing as the Giant in single player. Unless of course you jumped straight into multi and tried him out that way.

I can't deny, I had great fun with the game when it hit. Had it pre-ordered too...

News Comments > Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Gun Nerfed
12. Re: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Gun Nerfed Dec 11, 2015, 18:29 Xero
 
I read an article that stated why e-Sports can never be considered a sport and this was the key reason being. Your skill is based on the data the company sets down and it is what they want it to be.
If your awesome with 1 particular weapon lets say and it's due to an overpower or technical issue in design, the company can just make the adjustment and gone.
Sure, you can get awesome at a particular game and become great, but in the end, it's the developers that have the final say on how great you can become based on what they want to tweak.

I feel this issue was moreso the developers wanted to create more headlines and get a little CS GO news headlines by adding a new gun but making it absurd enough that you would talk about it. Mission accomplished. After reeling in enough new players/old players, they correct the issue and hope new players/old players stick around a bit longer.

What... the hell... is this?

No no no, this can't be the same FrozenByte that did Trine. No, no, no! I will not accept it!

Was Trine 3 really the foresight of the direction of the company? A sudden shift of what I thought was a great take on the platform genre with Trine 1 and 2?

This looks horrendous. /endrant

News Comments > Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge Free on Origin
8. Re: Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge Free on Origin Nov 28, 2015, 20:21 Xero
 
Game installs fine but runs FUBAR. At 1024by768 it had bad color distortion and basically blew up. I left it at 800by600 and while this actually got it to work upon loading a skirmish map, the game speed was glitched to super slow, not to mention it looked like ass on my widescreen that doesn't go that low in resolution, lol.

Definite skip. Crazy what has become of one of my all time favorite RTS games when I was younger

I wish Dragon Age Inquisition was on Steam. It's on sale for 14.99 which is awesome but I absolutely hate Origin and anything to do with EA.

News Comments > StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void Launches
16. Re: StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void Launches Nov 10, 2015, 21:25 Xero
 
Dunno what you guys talking about. For an RTS game that requires everyone to be almost on equal playing field which means you don't want lag to ruin your opportune moment in the game, optomizing the game to run perfect is Blizzard's priority.

With that said, they take art over graphical technological advances that hold well over time than just graphic tech that shows it's age quickly when the year passes and it's the thing of the past. Art and color on the other hand preserves longer and you can still play an older title that gives great direction through the art.

Heck, I'd still probably be playing Warcraft 3 if the damn resolutions weren't so limited for these days.

Here's hoping Blizzard's idea to update their old games goes well.

Looks sweet. Didn't even realize they were involved with Gauntlet OR Magicka. In fact, when I had been hooked on Gauntlet, I had no idea they were the guys involved with Magicka! Crazy small world! lol

Enough WoW!

Give us WC4, make it create a huge story arc, and then, go a head and create WoW2 based off of everything WC4 creates.

The cow is on the floor with it's eyes rolled back and Blizzard is still beating it for more milk.

Obviously it wasn't your type of game because those people playing it in 1998 were still playing it until Starcraft 2 launched... Some still didn't want to let it go, so I'm sure you don't get it if you weren't one of those.

I don't think they should resell them because it's not really the way to go just for a graphics/OS overall.

If they want to instead draw more interest into future titles by bringing the classics back, that's a great marketing move if anything.

If they mean Diablo 2 at higher resolutions or Warcraft 3 at higher res and Starcraft 2 interface improvements(hotkeys etc.), AWESOME.

They apologize by offering full refunds up until the end of 2015... Meanwhile Valve is hoping to get the refund rejections issues fixed before the end of 2015...

News Comments > StarCraft II Legacy of the Void Beta Ending
2. Re: StarCraft II Legacy of the Void Beta Ending Oct 26, 2015, 22:18 Xero
 
Glad to hear. Couldn't even get my stupid voucher to work Amazon sent me.

Oh well, I didn't preorder the CE for the beta. I just got the other 2 and figure I should keep the collection going, otherwise I really don't have much interest in the game, lol. I definitely have to get back to beating HotS.

I enjoyed SC2 WoL and beat it, but after the year went by, my attention waned and I never fully got into full HotS mode despite playing it a few missions and I'm somewhere in the middle I think.

I'm hoping I can get back to it right before LotV launches so I have a better understanding of just wtf is going on.

Honestly, my once favorite genre of RTS is hanging by the edge of a cliff with SC2 barely keeping me up, if Blizzard would fully focus a WC4 after this, I will be back 100%.
