News Comments > Crysis 3 Specs
48. Re: Crysis 3 Specs Dec 3, 2012, 20:56 4D-Boxing
theyarecomingforyou I cant contest your claims since I do not have Far Cry 3.

I wonder if its a case of everything looks better up close meaning that the draw distance is heavily reduced? Not that they used a console FOV but a similar impact visually? The Closest thing up to now was BF3 that being said, Metro looks better in some aspects but everything seemed to be up close no large vistas (at least from the benchmarks and the first little part of the game when you head into that refuge) . That's the type of scenario I'm referring to.

To be 100% honest your screen shots do not convince me either. Could just be the resolution since I run 2560x1600 or just the pic format.
The way technology evolves, its very possible that what you say is true.

Rant: I want a game that has Deathmatch...old school free for all. I cant believe I have to play COD4 Broadcast map to get a real DM game ( the map that the last 2 good servers I frequent runs). Oh and one has turbo mode that increases the speed and that's just bliss, no one spawning and laying down lol just pure carnage and one man army skills. yes I'm old but my twitch skills are still better than teenagers 25 years younger than me. If Chris Roberts can stir up interest in space sims, why cant someone do the same with old school DM?!?!

Blaming a company for focusing on a successful platform?!?!?!
LOL people can tell themselves that if it makes them feel better. People hate the guy because he said a lot of BS. The guy just had to think before opening his mouth.

Its not hard to look up the comments, Google is your friend..
From there you'll be able see who made this personal.

Good for Epic but bad for the Thailand's ladyboys..

I have to agree with Jerykk's comments. That being said, I don't get the comments about the controls. I may be old but we used to buy joysticks for flight/space sims. Racing games were either played with a joystick, wheel or later gamepads. Then people started complaining if a space sims did not having mouse support.

Now i'm even worried about all those new mech games. I did play parts of wing wing commander 2 with a mouse and keyboard but that was our first 386pc (first year of university) and my brother and I had to save up for a joystick. Today you can buy a cheap joystick or gamepad for less than most spend on pizza. On top of that they are not hard to open up and fix especially with the info we have online. If my brother and I opened up a vic 20 and repaired it and we weren't even in high school surly kids that can root cell phones can fix a cheap peripheral.

Anyways all this to say not a good port though the mouse performance is understandable (and this is coming from someone who cant stand gamepads). Looks at GoW pc that game had mouse support but it made the game so easy that solitaire looked like a tough game.

I think I've hit my quota for pointless rants for this year but I just had to say something.

News Comments > Battlefield 3 Double XP Weekend
19. Re: Battlefield 3 Double XP Weekend Jun 13, 2012, 18:28 4D-Boxing
The Windforce line of video cards is can be good but you need a case with very good air flow. The way the cooler is designed in a way that makes the heat flow into the case instead of out the back of your case.

If you go for SLI, you must make sure you have plenty of room between the cards the cards will overheat in no time. Trust me, I made that mistake with a pair of 580 (3GB) Windforce and had to change motherboards to get enough room between the cards.

Despite that and a modified Cosmos S case ( 2X high CFM 120mm fans blowing onto the cards) plus 3 top exaust fans etc.. I cant OC the 580 above 800Mhz. Technically these cards should hit at least 850Mhz.

That being said, these babies dont make much noise and do run very very cool in the right case!

I didn't notice any torso twist in Hawken. That and the footage worries me a bit. Like someone said it looked like a regular twitch shooter but with mechs. As a former Quake/UT player I like twitch shooter but I love Mech games just as much.

I used to enjoy going toe to toe against a Daishi with my Mauler. The abitlity to twist the torso gave me the option to sacrifice my back armor and specific torso or arm weapon to survive long enough and get the kill. Well that along with movement of course. In other words, I could also use the twist to distribute the damage.

Time will tell I guess...

Reviews have to mention all those technical details? Because gamers must know about SSAO, HDAO, FXAA, phong lighting model, etc.

Yes since its a performance review. They are looking at how demanding the game is on hardware not reviewing the actual gameplay etc..

That site does not review games its a hardware site.

Wow, about the same speed as hd7970 at nearly $100 cheaper? Bad news for AMD. I expect another price cut announcement in the very near future.

Very bad news especially since the 680 is really a rebadged 670. The GK110 was supposed to be there big gun or 680 but they realized their 670 (GK104) was as fast or faster than an AMDs 7970.

Those 670 sure looks sweet. They can reach 680 performance or close if overclocked.

Ouch, this hurts.

Like someone already said, rest in peace STALKER2...STALKER franchise etc..

I know I'm dreaming but imagine if Gabe Newell would pick these guys up. With proper funding, QA etc they could make something really good.

Anyways, despite the bugs, the STALKER series have given me the msot staisfying gaming experience in years.

You think the figures saw this year is crazy money?!?! They are worth 3 Billion!!

MS lost 3.7 Billion just on the first Xbox! You don't need a business degree to see were i'm going with this...

I want Valve to succeed but they need to be strategic and use their business savvy.

And then Apple later became the most profitable company in the entire friggin universe with a model based on hardware sales..

AH yes, the same the great Apple that got saved from bankruptcy by uncle Billy Gates (see history). How many sales flops before they released something that made them so big???

The cost of R&D to develop a viable piece of hardware that will sell like hotcakes not to mention marketing costs = lots of money in a shaky global economy.

The stock market loves people like you! Long live free enterprise!!

Anyways, Valve needs to position it's bread and butter first aka Steam and once the royalties $$ is rolling in like crazy they can look into hardware in order to maximize revenue by owning and controlling the distribution channel (hardware).

Bill Gates realized 30 years ago that the money was in software and not in hardware. Valve would be better off striking a deal with Sony that would integrate steam to the PS4 and a similar deal with cable providers concerning set to boxes.

Next thing you'll know, we'll see GORF and Radar Ratrace 3D.

I remember watching the last starfighter and destroying all my previous high scores on GORF (vic 20 version)...

Lag issues still exists. Patches improved things but I would not feel comfortable recommending the game. Don't expect the same fluid experience people got with COD4 online.

The game has other issues but those come down to the type of players it seems to attract.

Thanks for the link.

Might pre-order this one. Stopped pre-prdering games cause of all the bad games (MW2, BO, Homefront, Medal of Honor, Wolfenstein etc...)

At least these guys are not moving backwards. This one has dedicated servers and we can host our own.

If they release the mod tools and SDK in a timely fashion and the games sells well, this could put an end to this no dedicated server nonsense or rent a server BS.

39. Re: RAGE Trailer Apr 19, 2011, 18:13 4D-Boxing
Nope. Carmack explicitly stated in a recent interview that he repeatedly and forcibly insisted that the game run at 60. He mentioned that as a result of that, they had to make some visual tradeoffs he wasn't completely happy about, but felt that 60+ was really important.

I would trade 60+ FPS for real dedicated server support! If Carmack won't give this to us 60+ FPS wont mean anything cause of sweet chunky lag goodness a la COD MW2 and BO. Though I love BFBC2 took forever to get rid of the lag. We need to be able to host our own or else we're in for painful ride.

Again, go ahead and mod UT3 for any or all of these variables and see if the "challenge" makes the game more entertaining or not

That does not make sense to me but maybe I missed something. I think you should go play Multiplayer against humans to see what good AI could add to single player and then compare it to playing bots. Then tell us which is more entertaining.

I mostly MP now cause humans are better than any AI thus making gameplay more varied and fun. AI is simply trying to get NPCs playin more humans that's it.

Wonder if theyr are jsut trying to make people forget that Carmack said dedicated server was unlikley?

Anyways this game is not even on my radar. I've learned my lesson. Even Black ops with it's GameServers dedicated @#$& is a laggy mess. BFBFC2 was horrible for god knows how long for the same reason.

Do it right let people host or release on consoles only. ID used to innovate now they just move backwards. Carmack ahould go back to trying to build spaceships or what ever that was...

Give modders a chance they'll make real games!

And even if they do, you'll be back here when the announcement hits, bitching that a $40 price point is too high for owners of the original SFIV.

Ouch one bitter kid!

Seems that he's acting just like the people he is trying to criticize. In the 2 comments before his we can clearly read people saying the game was dumbed down lol.

People know that there is more money in consoles and that consoles are the main market for devs, it's been like that since the Atari 2600.

In finga 's world customers are not allowed to voice their opinion. Long live Keizer Finga one have an opinion or else he might snap. I can picture him red faced typing all that on his Android phone.

Here is a bit of truth, reviewer and the devs admitted that MA2 was made accessible (what some call dumbed down). Who cares, they have to make games for everyone not just hardcore gamers. If console gamers prefer casual gaming there is nothing wrong with that. Just like there is nothing wrong with PC gamer looking for depth in their games.

No company is forced to release their stuff on the PC. Poor Blizzard probably going to go broke with that MMO stuff on the PC lol. Bioware can leave the PC market all together and the only impact will be more room for devs who have the courage skill and knowledge to push gaming forward.

Anyways enough time wasted on this, he does not even realize that based on his logic cell phone games are going to kill console gaming. Not true but his logic implies this based on sales and market growth etc..
