Somehow I don't think we'll ever get the update that makes Steam fun.

Woah, did anyone else just visit this site, only to be redirected to a "FREEā€  Flatscreen TV!" webpage ?

Ha, you guys think you're storing Valve's games on your HD? Little do you know you've just saved them a ton of hard drive space. Now they have a HUGE amount of remote storage capacity for their p0rn.

Hmm... makes me think HL2 release day is going to be a mess, whenever it is.

Wondering if Half-Life 2 will slip to November

Stop wondering. Walmart just sent me an email. To summarize:

Original release date : 02 SEP 2004
New release date : 02 NOV 2004

I tend to believe them over Gabe these days.

I was wondering how this Jaws game thread had more posts than the T:V thread. Now I know. It should have been obvious. What game?

Here's to swimmin with bowlegged women...

Yes, in a FPS, graphics is very important to me. I also don't go backwards and play outdated games. I don't play any game for more than a couple of months no mater how good it is, because I get sick of it.

Please, go ahead and name some games that I would be missing out on if from now on I avoid playing games that are based on the old unreal engine. I prefer games like Far Cry, Doom 3, and potentially Half Life 2.. T:V.. games that make use of the latest graphics cards. I also refuse to play the once great game, pac-man, but maybe that's hilarious too?

Yeah right, Heavy Gunner: vietnam is graphically superior to D3. I think you've been smoking too many rice paddies. Name one unreal engine based game that is. Oh I forgot, it's cool to bash D3 these days.

Oh come on, did you ever see some of the English press releases from eastern european game makers? Sure, it's not their primary language, but it's still hilarious.

After playing D3, I think I'm done with Unreal engine based games.

Neato.. AvP the movie, based on a game.. that's based on two movies. Is that a first?

What else is there to talk about as far as new PC game releases for the next two months? So far tuesdays game news sucks. We have to go back to monday for this, because nothing else is going on.

Heh, steam, leak, and the coveted HL2 storyline all in one news article.. priceless. You can't make these things up.

What real options are in a typical FPS that you've played. Forget how you kill the baddies, because the story doesn't change and you don't even need a story line for that. There are no options that effect the direction of the story line.

You can either finish the game the same exact order as everyone else or you can quit playing and not finish the game.

Forget the term linear. How about, I want to be able to interact in the game to the point where I have some control over how the story unfolds, including alternate levels and/or endings. A story is nice (the Doom 3 story is entertaining if you pay attention to it), but having knowledge of it doesn't make me any better of a player than an experienced FPS who doesn't pay attention to the story.

You're right, the amout of effort to make the story "useful" in a FPS probably isn't worth it, but it would be interesting. I'm just saying that, my ratings of importance on a scale of 1 to 5 as far as the story goes for a FPS is:

Graphics ++++
Gameplay +++++
Story +

Which is why I have a hard time understanding how one FPS can be better than another.. because of the story. On the other hand, a RPG would need to have a higher story rating IMO.

And you're not going to get "beyond that" if the story itself has no impact on your decisions in the game. It's all still very linear. Your character halfway through the game is almost identical (except for the amount of ammo) to my character. If we're going to make a story a sigificant part of the game, with resources spent on developing it, then make it more than fancy wrapping paper around my mindless shooter.

I chuckle when I see people talk about storylines and deep characters.. in a first person shooter. I suppose everyone is different, but I really don't care much about a story for that game type. I get that from RPGs and even real time strategy type games, where an understanding of the story is helpful or even critical to playing the game itself. You could have the richest story line ever in a FPS, but if you can play the entire game, shoot everything in sight, and ignore any of the information provided.. what's the point?

I'll reserve judgment until I actually play HL2. Hotly anticipated games are always > than what you're currently playing.

This is one of those issues that I put into the catagory of "causing more problems than fixing".

No one should be booted from the game they're playing because STEAM has a problem with the router being used. I hope this isn't going to be the norm.
