News Comments > Steam Issues Fixed
8. Re: Steam Issues Fixed Dec 26, 2015, 14:06 Caslon
 
Apparently, this security fix is messing up other games as well. The Left 4 Dead series for one. Game freezes upon start, or disconnects players right right after a map is completed. You have to ctrl+alt+del to get out of it or wait the ridiculous 160 seconds as the server attempts to reconnect. This happened right after the last update and is still happening now a week later. FIX IT !!!!!

One source is saying he won't do any jail time, just a hefty fine. He considers that part of doing business.

Did Origin tweak the game so it installs and plays on Windows 7/8?

14. Re: Out of the Blue...TV ADS Nov 12, 2015, 16:10 Caslon
 
Less TV commercials, ya right! What channels do now is extend that block of program from 30 minutes or 60 minutes to 34 minutes or 64 minutes. That way they can get in more commercials and be within FCC regulations. Animal Planet does it, Comedy Central does it, the History Channel does it, and others. It's a sneaky devious way of circumventing FCC regulations regarding how many minutes of ads can be placed in a 30 minute or 60 minute program.

Seriously, those who aren't buying the latest neato game...why bother with driver upgrades now? How about an upgrade for upgrades sake that's not connected to the latest coolest game?

Every day there's 10 new games made that apparently someone makes and sells. I wonder how they even make a profit.

"We can also assure you that because of this latest launch, we are modifying the internal review process for all of our games..."

The internal review process. Ha! "Get this sucker out there, get revenue coming in...we'll deal with minor issues later".

Only..the issues aren't minor glitches, but obvious major ones. They make a game that has everything except dependability to be able to play the damn game.

YES! My Chrome browser has been freezing up just lately for no reason. Has anyone installed this fix and found it fixed the problem?

News Comments > Half-Life 2: Update Released
14. Re: Half-Life 2: Update Released Mar 28, 2015, 23:49 Caslon
 
It's worth it if you want to play a game that was overly jazzed about it's follow up to HL1 in the first place. HL2 is almost like a dev's need to show off the new physics.

The HL "Episodes" are more of that. Almost a pre-cursor to all the stupid fun that is to be had playing TF and all its current add-on buffoonery.

I rather thought HL 2 was more in love with it's new physics than with carrying on the fun of HL1. I was impressed with them, but HL2 seemed overly jazzed with showing off the new physics than implementing it in a
fun way. I got bored with HL2 playing it the second time and trying to be jazzed with the improvements.

Steam living down to their BBB rating of F. Steam is the first and only F grade I've seen the BBB give to a business. Well done Steam, well done!

Making Half Life: Episode 3 would have been dumb. Why make another "Episode" when the first two "Episodes" looked and played exactly the same? Why?

Immediately after purchasing a game on Steam, my credit card company texted me to call their security division right away to verify the purchase. It was only a $9.99 game too. I'm telling ya, this doesn't happen very often with at all my other 20 credit card purchases per month.

What does it matter if the pendulum swings back to PC's? People will still be offered shitty console to PC ports.

It's probably a gamble they had to be make to keep this game from going under fast fast fast. The effect is gonna be the same on the bottom line, it's just another way of getting there. What a shame. The graphics are really rather HL1 looking too, but I can overlook that, but not for long.

From Forbes article: "Itís kind of a unique concept for a microtransaction, but ultimately one that feels like the worst of all possible worlds. SOE broke their promise by inserting airdrops with valuable gear, and the fact that the player may not get the drop they paid for doesnít change that. Rather, players that have successfully gotten their own paid drops will be in a better position to stake out other peopleís drops, creating a snowball effect where these pay-to-players get better and better gear. Good luck to the free-to-play guy with the rusty axe trying to get the drop on someone elseís airdrop if the person lying in wait is decked out in body armor and wielding a machine gun."

Given the mixed bag of reviews at this point, this is a wait and see.
An 80 Metacritic score is better than I was expecting, especially after the last few Alien outings. Which means it's nowhere close to perfect, but that's about the score you'd expect for a good game.

I don't trust Metacritic scores by professional reviewers. I'll wait to see how the masses score it. Even non public reviewers who score it high have something they don't like about it, and they put it right up front in their review...ie: "wish it was braver"..."has some flaws>"
