What I find interesting it that they didn't charge for advertising, oh wait. So is fox news on TV going premium to? I think the time has come that viewers shouldn't expect that type of quality for free.

This will fail and not that I really hope or care, but it will just fail because there are tons of other free sources. Rupert, for Happy it was in the hips, for you it's in the ads.

IMO there are shades of Dungeon Lords in this program if released when it supposedly scheduled. And the real closed game beta testers are telling us we are seeing the "best of HOMM5" right now.

I enjoy popping SS2 in from time to time and going online for some good ole mindless coop fun. Game has a combo of great gfx/great performance/lots of arcade style action/coop I as well don't see what is so different with this game then the other 2 in terms of raw game play. I prefer playing 2 or 1 and 1.5 at this point. For some reason the judging public wanted to come down hard on the series at this point in time.

On the Q4 MP Patch: What is wrong with reviewers?

http://www.firingsquad.com/hardware/quake_4_dual-core_performance/page4.asp

800x600
1280x1024 4AA
1600x1200 6AA

Isn't that in a real world fairly backwards? Wouldn't 800x600 need the AA and the 1600x1200 need very little, maybe 2x? It's hard to get into a lot of benches in reviews they are just not that in-tune imo.

Other then that, it's a good promo for dual core/threading.

"This game is great on the 360. Glad I didn't bother getting the PC version of this."

IMO it's every bit as good or better on the PC. We just like to see improvements and the 360 needs improvements on the save bug, they had to give out a cheat code to fix it in a round abouts way. And the whole online matchmaking part fo the 360 is messed up. PC overall is in better shape comparatively.

On the RIAA lawsuit. I'd just go in as the lady and have them prove with evidence that I actually downloaded it. That no spyware was loaded on my pc and it downloaded it etc. And then use all these little programs people use on my pc as a possible culprit. How can they really prove for certain she did it? Do they have video evidence? All I know RIAA is sending out software that downloads programs to peoples pc's and then they settle out of court for $3000-$4000 each time.

"You know that you're not permitted to say if you've been accepted to the beta, much less discuss the game publically at this point?"

So are you the Internet police? And I was wondering even though I'm a bystander, "Whatcha gonna do about it?" and exactly what is the "crime" and "penalty"? Really I guess we should know the dire consequences of someone admitting they are in a beta, sounds like hard time for a long time somewhere, no?

I say to anyone in a beta feel free to talk about anything you like. By anonymous, you most likely have pirated software and music to a certain level and I can't believe breaking a games beta agreement is as bad as making an illegal copy of something every so often. What is someone going to do? Spend all the time trying to figure who you are just to kick you out of beta? There is no jail time there is no fine. I'm not here to police you and I'm not so sure why others are either. Sounds like a lot of "nah nah nah nah nah nah" to me. Freedom of speech right?

Yeah the debt is now really a non-factor. Yah some people still get pissed about it in-game, but when in a mission, who isn't anymore? Within a few minutes it's gone. I went down once last evening and I was out of debt after the same battle, first time I've seen that. A lot of people quit this game very early <30. Late 20's is where this game now takes off coming into most of your powers. Yeah a year and 1/2 ago your mid 20's was 8+ hours per level and dull, now there down to around 3-4 hours per level.

Still I haven't played a mmo that has anywhere near the battle excitement as COH has with an 8 man team up against 30-40 baddies. I'm amazed at how well the system handles all that action, best fighting model with GW's a unique honorable mention in that regards.

Yeah it's repetitive, it's a mmo. Yeah there is a death penalty, it's a mmo.

1. The non-debug mode of COV will have very nice performance, like COH beta to Live shown us. COH performance is on par with WOW's.

2. IMO the combat model and encounters in COH when you are on a nice big team is second to none in the MMO genre. This is the part they really nailed with this game.

3. I haven't done a lot in COV beta at all, it does seem very similar and as mentioned it has to be somewhat the same as the two will eventually meet up with one another. I won't get this day one, but somewhere down the road.

4. The Enhancement change actually does add diversity to the game, it forces you to add different enhancements instead of a straight 6 of one particular thing. That is diversity. Sure it can be looked at as a nerf, but at the same time they have also give us back things as well. More group XP over the years, half debt cost while dying in a mission, boosted some powers etc. Too many just look at the negatives, it's not about being easy, only a putz wants that. You want a challenge with a fulfilling reward. There has been a lot of give and take and if things are to nerf'd then they will make an adjustment to make the game fun again for the base to play.

5. To the person who doesn't want to pay $50 and $15. Your boycott is failing miserably. MMO's is the PC's life blood these days.

6. One of the most important parts of a MMO in the design phase is how fast and flexible the code is for addons etc. This game like almost all of them so far have done a poorish job. Many of the things they wanted, haven't happened or been greatly reduced when the rubber hit the road. As these evolve making an engine that is easy to adjust and add content to will become more and more important.

Overall COH was good and over the two years it's done a decent job at adding content and honing itself. They weren't able to make any mind-blowing drastic changes and I suspect COV to go right down that same exact path.

In COH debt has been addressed as well as slooow leveling. Both imo are now much more acceptable and I believe both COH and COV are going to have the same rules in this regard. Also over the couple of years, there has been a lot more variation in terms of enemies added and bases to attack. Sure most of the missions are still the same shallow self overall in objective (however some are now unique), there is still faster progression and more variation that does keep the game fresher longer. Still has the best combat model for a MMO, yes surpassing WOW by a good stretch. Yes they should have had a LOT more temp powers to keep things even fresher.

Why is this news? Why do they act like they invented something fresh? There are plenty of places to download data free and to pay for that have been around longer then steam and do it better. They act like they are really doing something new here and many are acting like tools going along with that. Steam ok you have your place, you are no rockstar, I'll use you when I need to. Goodbye.

Well I think they are all missing the point and over thinking all of this. Just put a bloody wireless/optical mouse on a console already and use it for games that work best for it, like you would with any other input device.
