News Comments > AvP Demo Released Early
10. Re: AvP Demo Released Early Feb 3, 2010, 23:20 A51Abductee
 
They can toot their horn all they want about DX11, the game's graphics are just mediocre at best.


Just FYI, this demo supports DirectX 9 only. So if there's anyone who's leeching this for DX11, don't bother.

The weight limits aren't that big a deal in my view, and if anything add a bit of realism to the inventory management. Plenty of games have encumbrance, including the one you quote in your sig Acleacius You can find a few artefacts to help raise your carrying weight too.

STALKER tries to make you feel vulnerable and not just a god running around with a Kalashnikov. Noone can run around carrying 60kg for very long.

But the CS time limits - yeah they're just plain annoying

Yeah, there was a UK/European version of SoC with a metal tin. If you're interested, Rhialto has some shots of the Clear Sky CEs from Russia and Poland. They were loaded with goodies.

IMHO, Rhialto's self-produced coin is more meaningful though.

Yeah, Surf, I could be wrong but I think they're all "Collectors Edition." The version shown on the Gamestop website is also CE for $40. Maybe it's just for the initial pressing or two, and then it will revert to a regular edition.

A map, poster, and stickers isn't as fancy as the stuff they get in Europe. But it's more than we've ever got in North America before and I'm grateful for the extra treats. Especially at a $40 price point.

Can't wait to play this.

Aero, read a review like the Eurogamer one posted earlier today. It's solid.

Called up my local Lamestop and they said they'll have it in stock tomorrow. Tomorrow's going to be a long, scary night.

Edit:
"Collector's Edition includes area map, tech-tree poster, stickers, and more"
Nice bonus, plus that it's selling for $40.00 US.

The lack of proper widescreen was the one issue keeping my $5USD in my pocket. Glad to see Rebellion has fixed (augmented) it. This patch constitutes the few tangible differences from the original 2000 Gold edition game sitting on the shelf, and makes the five bucks well worth it IMHO.

News Comments > Red Faction: Guerilla Manual Patch
12. Re: Red Faction: Guerilla Patch Jan 15, 2010, 14:11 A51Abductee
 
Just FYI, if you have this game via Steam, there was a small update released yesterday which fixed a glitch with updating the Steam version via GFWL, and the update should work fine now. It did for me anyway.

http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?s=f77b48ea60b1e138bd24906dbe97a933&t=1110429

I picked up RF:G for $7US during the Steam Holiday Sale and have been enjoying it immensely.

For $3.75 US, and having never played it, it was a pretty brainless decision to pick up Jade Empire. I lost more money than that today from the clothes dryer downstairs eating my quarters.

Picked up Red Faction: Guerrilla for $10 and Riddick: Dark Athena for $6.80. Steam must be getting hammered, I've only been getting around 60K/s all day today. At this rate I'll be playing them sometime next week, hehe.

Can't wait for this release, and hope that the additional incubation time results in the most highly polished STALKER game yet. Any chance of a North American collectors' edition? (Yeah, had to ask anyway.)

Just a warning that if you are in North America and purchase this via Steam, as of 3:45PM EST the game still isn't unlocked, regardless of what the product page says. It was expected to be unlocked at 3PM EST, although as usual there was no guarantee of that.

On a side note, gamestop is now listing the release date as Dec. 10th http://www.gamestop.com/Catalog/ProductDetails.aspx?product_id=76275
and Amazon is listing Dirt2 as "Usually ships in 2 to 4 weeks."

News Comments > US Windows DiRT 2 Next Week
10. Re: US Windows DiRT 2 Next Week Dec 6, 2009, 08:43 A51Abductee
 
I'm sorry but how is Codemasters delaying DiRT2 in one territory related to Valve delaying Half-Life 2? And who is it that you're blaming for this situation? Valve or AMD/ATi? I'm slightly confused as to what you're getting at.

Simply check the Steam forum for this game (if it's even accessible) to understand how the claim is justified. Some examples: total lack of coordination between GFWL and Steam, unexplained deletions from Steam games list after promo key entry, downloading of phantom data in the background with no notification or explanation, not to mention numerous technical issues and crashes that are endemic - despite a huge release delay.

They hosed this release, at least in North America. But it shouldn't really be a surprise if you remember the previous ATI HL2 voucher disaster. What's clear is that the pirates have been enjoying this game since Thursday.

I just activated my AMD 5XXX promo key on Steam, and so far so good. The card that came in my Radeon box with the game key actually says "scheduled to be available December 11, 2009." But yeah, I also could have sworn there was a press release stating Dec 1. Guess one more week isn't going to kill us.
