Waiting for a good deal on JC2 for xbox.....don't really see a reason to play it on PC.

Aside from mouse control, mods, and being able to run it higher res?

I grabbed JC2 and the DLC back in the last sale. And, it was totally worth it. The game is just awesome.

$100AU from EBGames Australia. £44.99 is only $77.17AU. As usual, us Australians pay a hefty tax for our software.

EB is always too expensive. Go for JB Hi-fi. Thursday's one day sale will see it down to $56.

Despite being imperfect, I think this was a good move. It's certainly the professional way to do things.

Onlive could be the perfect service for anyone that doesn't know how to build or buy a decent gaming box. If they weren't console gamers already, which they all are.

It's available on Steam.

I picked up plain old Necrovision in the Steam sale, just to see what it was like. Apparently Lost Company wasn't as good.

It looks fun, although I can imagine Live popping up every ten seconds to tell you about the 65 million achievements you've just collected.

Also, the dialogue is... well, great if you're a 12 year old Counterstrike player.

The special sale items seem less impressive than the reduced games in the catalogue.

News Comments > GoG vs Goliath
26. Re: GoG vs Goliath Jul 1, 2010, 23:16 Reactor
 
So what I'm getting is the only people who buy GoG are those who are anti-Steam?

No. I love buying games off both, but GOG is clearly the better provider of classic games, even if the price is a little higher at times. That said, and as mentioned, Steam doesn't have anywhere near what GOG has. Every now and then Steam gets a game that GOG has, but GOG has soooo many more titles you really can't compare the two.

When you want to buy (sometimes) cheap games that'll rarely be supported, and some of the time not patched, you go to Steam. When you want well supported classics, you go to GOG. When you're in Australia you act as though D2D doesn't exist (because to D2D Australia doesn't exist) and when you can, you buy off Impulse because they're a good bunch of people.

Dragon Age is one of those games you'll appreciate more if you can just sit and play through without a lot of breaks.

Keep your eyes open for stuff like this. At least with this kind of heads up you can guess what might be coming.

News Comments > Rockstar: No Current PC Red Dead Redemption Plans
92. Re: Rockstar: No Current PC Red Dead Redemption Plans Jun 14, 2010, 14:26 Reactor
 
Arg, you got me just before bed.

I think it's fair enough to say Rockstar aren't total disasters when it comes to PCs, and there's certainly potential for RDR to be a great port. But, quite a number of guys have issues with GTA4, and they're not guys with strange systems. I can personally run every game I have perfectly well, and I'm a dev who runs a lot of very touchy software. GTA4 is most certainly bugged beyond driver issues, or anything that simple.

There are plenty of other companies who don't patch their products period who are far more deserving of our scorn.

Can't they all have our scorn?

Like how you have nothing better to do than post about how bad this game would be and blah blah blah?

Look, I'm tired and need sleep. I don't want to argue the pointless rubbish with you any longer. But, I'll say something because it's nice to try and end things.

The comment wasn't about the game being bad. I've played it and like it, and would love it on the PC. It was about the way the developers are doing things at the moment, that result in more than janky-ass games. The games don't work at all (especially when you're talking about Steam), and there's no one around to fix them. There's no need to argue against someone who wants a game that works. Only an idiot would try and argue that it's okay for any and every PC game to be broken. The PC may have a history of busted games and some people may even enjoy dealing with them, but it doesn't make them right, and it certainly doesn't make an opinion like mine invalid.

Because of this, you might understand that it was frustrating when your posts consisted of taking every one of my points and posting the always impressive 10 year old tactic of pointing out the bleedingly obvious opposite alternative. "You don't like it? Don't buy it.", you said. "Well thanks for that genius. I never would have figured that out without your help.", I thought.

Your posts were a poitless nitpick against whatever I had said and was saying. Anyone can point out the opposites to any opinion, and all it does is drag out an argument for waaay too long... which was strange to see happening, because I hadn't actually argued anything. All I was doing was responding to the attitude and nitpicking tactic in your posts with my usual sarcasm.

So, whether it was right or wrong to nitpick or be sarcastic, let's just accept we have differing opinions so we can both do something else. For me, sleep. Keep on nitpicking if you want, but it won't be something I'll respond to.

That wasn't a personal insult. It was to ask if you like writing for no reason. Seriously, don't you have something better to do with your life than write up an essay trying to take down my passing comment?

I didn't originally have an 'entire argument', as you put it. I posted about how GTA4 was broken (to correct a guy who thought it was perfect now), and then I thought it was good Rockstar weren't sending a broken game to the PC as usual (and lately breaking PC games is all they've been doing- GTA3 and 4). I was hardly debating my opinion with a concise arguement.

I have no idea why you're ranting away at me, but all I can conclude is that you're bored. Go play a game or something. You know, all those broken ones you like so much. Meanwhile I'll do the same with the ones that've actually been patched to work, instead of break.

Have a nice day.
