Well, that settles it. I will never buy a game from UbiSoft again. Even if they do drop that ridiculous DRM, the fact that they blatantly lied to everyone about the game's DRM? I agree with nin, don't waste your money.

News Comments > Driver: San Francisco DRM Relaxed
5. Re: Driver: San Francisco DRM Relaxed Aug 18, 2011, 12:10 meezookeewee
 
This is better, but Ubisoft seems to be flip-flopping on this issue. Some of their new games will require you to be on-line at ALL times, and others, you only need to sign in. I would rather Ubisoft do with their games what Blizzard did for StarCraft II, Login once every 30 days. I don't think that would be unreasonable. Of course, the best solution is to not have that kind of DRM at all, but UbiSoft won't do that.

News Comments > Duke3D a Good Old Game

Awesome. It's been forever since I've played Blake Stone. Awesome game. Rise of the Triad was one of my ABSOLUTE favorite games back in the day. I've been a member of GOG for a while now, and I have to say they have done an impressive job so far. It's going to be a while, but I hope they get access to Crusader: No Remorse and No Regret. Those two games were awesome.

There's a GAPING loophole here that old Jacky boy has seemed to have ignored. The parents. So what if you criminalize the sale of violent games to minors? They'll get their parents to buy the game for them. This bill has been moot the moment it was conceived. What a loon.

I give it two weeks before it's struck down as unconstitutional.

Hell, I wouldn't give it one week.

You know, as someone who actually lives in Utah, I feel that anyone who even THINKS about taking Jacky seriously is a total and absolute disgrace. The fact that the stupid son-of-a-bitch actually followed through on his threat to appeal his disbarment to the Supreme Court just shows how RETARDED this guy is. His methods are what got him into this shit in the first place, and he's still going like the fucking energizer bunny. He's too stupid to know when to quit.

Meh. I stopped playing Crysis: Warhead a while ago. It was fun for a while, but I prefer the original game. So, I took Warhead off my computer.

Didn't Utah spearhead that DVD player that automatically censors movies put into it?

It wasn't the state, it was the company ClearPlay. As far as I know, any and all companies that have offered "cleaner" versions of Hollywood blockbusters are out of business in this state. Mostly, because they never asked permission to edit those films. That's what killed these companies.

I live here in Utah, but this fucking moron isn't going to get much done here, despite it being a conservative state. Even here in Utah, any bill that legislates video games ends up getting tossed out.

News Comments > Tomb Raider: Underworld Underperforms
14. Re: Tomb Raider: Underworld Underperforms Jan 9, 2009, 12:05 meezookeewee
 
It's not "very, very" good. It's *way* too short, combat is as bad as ever, there were some *bad* camera issues, and I really don't care for fighting demon undead. It was somewhat of a letdown from TRL.

Not a bad game, but I've seen better games sell far less than Underworld has...

And that's 1.5 out of all platforms.

That's my problem with TR: Underworld as well. It's a lot of fun, but technical issues are just overwhelming. I think it's an awesome game, but I do agree that the clunky combat is pathetic. The camera's ALWAYS been the biggest problem with Tomb Raider. I got the game for the PC, and when it's working properly, it's amazing, aside from the combat, of course. But performance and camera issues mar the experience.

Don't feed the troll guys, everyone here knows that Jack Thompson's case will NEVER be heard by the Supreme Court. And even if it was, there is absolutely NO chance in hell that Thompson will be reinstated. His record speaks for itself. His complete lack of self-control has made certain of that. NOBODY is going to take him seriously. No one has, and no one ever will.

Quantum of Solace was pretty good. Daniel Craig is awesome as always. That being said, it was still not as good as Casino Royale. For a Bond film, you have to have a villain that's memorable and Quantum didn't have one. Dominic Greene was simply forgettable. Casino Royale's Le Chiffre was far more menacing. There are a number of scenes that pay homage to earlier Bond films such as Goldfinger. You'll know them when you see them. I can certainly see the direction they might be going with the next two Bond films.

I rented it on my XBOX 360. I was not impressed with it. It pretty much hasn't changed since the first game.

The fact that he's been disbarred in Florida is going to follow him EVERYWHERE. It's on his permanent record. Do you honestly think that any state is going to employ him after being disbarred? I seriously doubt it.

News Comments > NVIDIA Far Cry 2 Beta Drivers
107. Re: I'm absolutely LOVING Far Cry 2. Oct 26, 2008, 01:30 meezookeewee
 
Just having tons of fun driving around, assassinating people, blowing shit up and generally just exploring. Found 53 diamond cases so far.

Setting fire to the savannah with a flamethrower and watching that fire just engulf a guardpost is awesome.

The only downside is the ridiculous respawn rate. It would be better if the protagonist is forced to go to sleep after a certain period of time and that everything respawns while he sleeps.

Right now you'll fight your way through a guardpost, takes ten minutes, drive up the road, kill your target, drive back, and have to kill the same guardpost again. That gets a bit boring after awhile. And in the end, the mission structure is fairly generic. Drive here, kill all the guys, kill special guy or blow up special thing, drive somewhere else.

But the firefights are great fun, I think the AI is pretty good in most areas, excellent in others (though weak when it comes to driving, they always just drive straight at your mounted machinegun...) and it's just fun to drive around and gawk at all the sights.

Great game. And the technology is fucking awesome. No hitches, no stuttering. No load screen ever. Smooth, seamless massive world. I wish Deus Ex 3 would come with such a world on this engine.

Creston

I agree. Awesome game. I haven't been able to stop playing it. Even on a machine like mine, it runs pretty damn good on medium settings, and still looks pretty good. I don't have the machine to run it properly, but the game scales pretty damn well. There's a lot of driving involved, but considering how big the game world is, it doesn't really bother me a bit.

I've had zero problems with this game so far. The state of the game looks fine to me. A small percentage of people always have issues with every game.

Well, I decided to try one of the suggestions on Ubi's forums: Disable my soundcard. It worked, I could start a new game and start playing. So, I had a theory I wanted to test, I decided NOT to disable my sound card, but turn off the hardware acceleration. That did the trick. Not only can I play the game now, I have sound. So, if anyone has issues starting a new game, do what I did, shut off the hardware acceleration to your sound card. This solution worked for me, I don't if it'll work for anyone else, but it's worth a shot. I don't know how Ubisoft missed this but they really need to patch it.

Unfortunately, Ubisoft's Tech Support doesn't work weekends, so I can't do anything until next week. And I can't even get on to ask a question anyway. So, if they have a patch next week that'll sort out these issues, then I'll be set, if not, that's 50 bucks down the drain. I will never, EVER buy another game that's been made by Ubisoft. Not even Prince of Persia. Far Cry 2 was one of my most anticipated games, and Ubisoft fucked it up, by releasing the game in this state.

Based on your specs I wouldn't even bother to attempt getting it to run. If you're a good tech and have your system uberly optimized and know what you're doing then it might be a good laugh to see the graphics at some kind of pathetic framerate.

Generally, I find that it's not worth running a game like this at super slow frame rates with utterly compromised graphics as in many of these games you'll find that without the graphics the game is rather dull. Immersion is the point when the gameplay is shallow.

You're better off to wait a few months or years after you've upgraded and play it as it was meant to me played.

You'd be amazed at what I can play with my rig. I've been able to play some games that "require" dual core cpu's, like Assassin's Creed. I can run that game no problem, not at the highest detail levels or resolutions, mind you, but it was very playable at a decent clip, granted it's a completely different engine, but still. And quite frankly, the graphics don't make the game. Never have. Not in my opinion. They certainly don't hurt, that's for sure, but it's the gameplay that makes the game. Not graphics. I wish people would understand that. Besides, I already have Far Cry 2, I want to freakin' play it. And by the way, you didn't answer my question.
