Steam user reviews are a joke, wise move making it opt-in.

^ this.

Was a joke for players, but for devs, its a nightmare.

Wait... getting a game cheaper while the developer makes more money is a Bad Thing™ now?

Ok, the exclusivity thing is a tad shitty, but otherwise...

Battle Royale
A Quake mod that did it, complete with stepping forward to collect your random backpack.
Hell, I made a SoF2 mod that would made everyone spawn with a random weapon in a random location in a last man standing situation.
Nothing new there.

In-game lobby.
See Natural Selection did this years ago.

Parachuting into the game from a plane or similar.
BF1942, several Half-Life mods etc did this.

I can't really think of anything it has that you could consider unique.

Not that that is a bad thing.
If millions of people are buying it and enjoying themselves, be happy with that and move on.

You would think that with all that income they could at least come up with something to combat all the cheating in the game. Despite all the announced bans, cheating is still rampant.

Until it has permanent first person only mode enforced by the server (i.e. server only replicates what a first person view could possibly see), the whole game is one big cheat

This is the main reason I personally have zero interest in the game or any similar game.

To me, anything tactical goes out of the window when you see around corners and over walls

Interesting idea, but people will always try to get shite for free.

It's just angry little pissant nobody developers (Who are SJWs) whining about finally being unable to trick people into buying their garage-developed garbage.

Got the same feelings when I read an interview with an indie dev that makes it out like its the death of indie gaming on Steam. They really need to harden the fuck up or get a different job.

See but you're so quick out of the gate with the SJW stuff, that I can't really believe that it's just about ethics in journalism. Someone tell me, what does GG want? Please.

Nothing says they'd have to take it out
If anything, it would get a whole lot better, provided they left it open enough.

And that .nif file format needs to die.

As long as it is more like Fallout New Vegas, less like Fallout 3, I'd be happy enough.
Happier still if they stopped using highly-modified GameByro and shifted to <insert modern engine here>.

Loved the first one.
Not so much number 2 or Shadow Magic.
Still go back and play AoW every now and then.
Just that sort of game

Think about that next time you won't pony up $59.99 for that AAA title... and remember the $100 you spend on this B studio crap

$100 towards a game made by a B studio where a decent amount of the funds actually go the developers?
I am ok with that.

Better then $59.99 for a semi-completed console'ised POS game where the developer is lucky to get paid and/or stay in business on completion of the game, due to the whim of the publisher.

And aren't you forgetting the $200 of DLC you need to pay for in order to get the actual game you should have got in the first place?

Funny. I did to. So did a lot of other people, based on the online population.

Uninstalled 4 days ago.
Haven't played in over a week.
As you say... such potential, such a let down.

After Letdown, they'd have to pull some very fancy shit to get me back as a customer. I kinda know how a father might feel when they deny the existance of their own son for reason...

"There is no Rainbow6!"

Had high hopes, despite being in the hands of Ubisoft.
Then I played the demo.
Oh well, it was a nice dream while it lasted.

Wouldn't have bought it anyway, because of StarForce. didn't buy Splinter Cell Chaos Theory for the same reason.

GG Ubi.
You won't be getting my money for this either.

News Comments > Spector Goes Source
49. No subject Nov 22, 2005, 17:32 Kris Redbeard
 
In the past, the mention of a new Warren Spector game would get me excited. System Shock2 is still one of my favourite games of all time. However, since the release of Deus Ex Invisible War and Thief3, my opinion of Mr. Spector and my excitment over anything he was involved in greatly diminished. And now he is involved with Steam.

Meh.
I'm all for digital content delivery, but in my opinion, Steam goes about it in the wrong way. I swear, if I hear that Oblivion or ET:QW will require Steam, I'm going gonna get medieval on someones asses...
