News Comments > Torchlight & Torchlight II Linux Coming to Steam?
2. Re: Torchlight & Torchlight II Linux Coming to Steam? Jul 17, 2014, 10:15 Xero
 
While I don't care about this Linux talk, this article has reminded me to get back to the game. It's just with Diablo 3 expansion having taken most of my time, I'm not sure if I want to get back into another ARPG at the moment.

There is no laws that exist to prevent a company from selling you something and then taking it away from you without returning your money? That sounds like quite a scheme to be LEGALLY ALLOWED...

So let me get this straight. You purchased all kinds of in-game content and now you can't access it? Am I hearing that correct?

If there is one thing I hate more than a game announcement without screenshots, is a game announcement with a CGI filled trailer. BAH!

News Comments > GameStar: Crytek in Financial Trouble
55. Re: GameStar: Crytek in Financial Trouble Jun 23, 2014, 09:13 Xero
 
It would suck if they folded. Crytek has been a huge part of the PC gaming market as far as engines go. They gave us titles that we could show off our PC gaming rigs to friends and point out just how superior the PC was to consoles.
If they go under and we don't get technology the way they pushed constantly to make it better and better, then it's not a good thing.
I remember when Far Cry 1 released prior to Doom 3 and after Doom 3 had everyone's attention, all a sudden Far Cry 1 stole most of it's thunder with it's superior graphics. It also came out of nowhere.
I liked the way Crytek functioned in that they didn't give a shieet about any other company's reputation or graphic engine and would just put out theirs when it was ready with no reputation and it took everyone by surprise.

News Comments > Watch Dogs Patched; PC Graphics Explained
5. Re: Watch Dogs Patched; PC Graphics Explained Jun 20, 2014, 09:45 Xero
 
It's just another justification so the whiny console gamers don't complain that their uber new console can't run the game at the highest level such as the PC can which in turn can hurt overall console sales. Think about it, your saying the VERY newest consoles can't run the latest games at the highest settings after you just forked out 400+ for the system?
That lies the problem because console sales are HUGE and these developers have to cater to them.

Hey look, it's either you lose sales because your game just sucks. Or you lose sales because of piracy. Either way you have a better shot of getting someone to pay for the title if they at least find something good or worth it in the trial that makes them want it.

Actually they got a great idea. It's something Steam should look into. The excuse for piracy is that there is no demo or a demo is too limited to see what a gamer is truly buying. With this, it completely shuts down both those notions as they are giving you the entire game free as if you were renting it, for 2 days. Now after those 2 days where you got 48 hours worth of game time in, if you aren't still satisfied, you don't need to buy it or worry about an overcharge fee. It's a great move to be honest and it could cut down on piracy SOMEWHAT.

News Comments > Far Cry 4 PC Graphics Gimped
1. Re: Far Cry 4 PC Graphics Gimped Jun 20, 2014, 09:14 Xero
 
That's a load of malarkey. There is ALWAYS room for enhancements and graphics to be turned up to another level on the PC. If they are gimping FarCry 4 for the consoles, don't act like PC has to suffer either. That's console port all to hell without it even releasing yet. Bad move on their behalf. Sounds like they are just trying to keep the whining console turds happy when the PC gamers always say how superior it looks.

That's awesome news. Trine is one of the best side scroller puzzlers I've ever played. To get a FREE update only shows how awesome Frozenbyte it. I'll definitely give it another play thru with this update applied.

Crap, there goes my money for summer.

At least, I already own most of these. So day one is over. Whew!

lol, my thoughts as well. I own a few of those and the others don't intrigue me. I've made it successfully thru day 1 without spending a penny. I can breathe.

I like the idea that you could in a sense avoid the alien throughout your entire playtime as long as you keep quiet. That alone brings some believability to the game's atmosphere.

I haven't played TF2 in years but had a blast with it when I did. I probably left right around when they were introducing all the hats and gadgets you could earn. I am quite astonished by how long the game has been running for with the constant updates and whatnot. I've no idea really what this announcement will be considering I think TF2 is still running strong.

News Comments > Stronghold Crusader 2 in Beta; New Trailer
3. Re: Stronghold Crusader 2 in Beta; New Trailer Jun 13, 2014, 19:58 Xero
 
Stronghold was awesome when it was sprite based. Unfortunately Firefly Studios has not gotten the 3D graphics department down yet and it lacks just about everywhere. Honestly, Age of Empires 3 still looks better than this with animations and physics.
It's like Firefly Studios has yet to acquire a "modern" graphics engine to build their games off of.

News Comments > Grand Theft Auto V Steam Details
28. Re: Grand Theft Auto V Steam Details Jun 12, 2014, 16:45 Xero
 
I don't think it'll have a problem running on PC. Isn't the engine just a modified GTA 4 engine? A few more bells and whistles including additional bells and whistles to make use of PC hardware.
I think we have plenty of hardware out right now to handle it just fine. In fact I think we have hardware that is even beyond this game... We do have Unreal Engine 4...

Even though the video notes it at the end (all footage being from the PS4), I'm still a little skeptical of the shots. But then again, I was skeptical of the original trailers, too, and they were accurate.

Amazing what those guys do...


I'm not skeptical but without the proper hardware, I don't doubt you cannot achieve those amazing settings. Obviously PS4 users don't need to worry but PC users are either going to get this at medium quality settings or require some updated components to get this. I'm sure PC will look even better than this maxed out, provided you have the hardware to run it.

That's actually quite shocking the differences.
I didn't expect it that great. Obviously I'm thinking of how good it's gonna look on the PC based off the PS4 pics. Good to know.
