I can confirm all of this

The rest of your post aside the mouse support is perfect in this game, no issues. V-synch does halve your framerate and cause stutter, but you disable it just like the first game and force it through drivers. I mean it is literally a two second fix. And I haven't had any save issue, not sure what that is all about.

the PC port works flawlessly for me, not sure what else to say really, it's a much better experience than on consoles I would bet my ass.

Not surprised in the least; still upset.
SKU cost the same as the console versions, should receive everything console versions get.

Someone who's trying to futilely support PC Gaming.

I don't know how they're going to manage the story driven side of this to flow with the multiplayer side. It's not like Mass Effect or Dragon Age were multiplayer...

We'll see what happens

All the players get to contribute to the decision making choices during the dialog so it probably won't be bad at all.

I'm sure having your own little storyline rest on the deeply thought out dialogue choices of the gogogogogogogogogogogogogo guy will turn out to be a genius concept.

For pugging, awful. Playing with a good guild or with friends, a good concept. See Guild Wars 1.

I played the 360 version before the PC.

After a couple (required) tweaks, I 100% enjoyed the PC version over the 360 version. I used a Logitech "DualShock" imitating Gamepad. I did experience, at first, a lot of the problems everyone here has reported, I was able to fix them and for some reason others werent I guess.

6. Re: Morning Mobilization Jan 13, 2011, 18:14 Cram
This is interesting, if true.

So, will games come out priced at 59.99/69.99? I have to assume so if these companies have to spend the $$$ necessary to meet the expectations of playing a PS3-like game on a handheld.

More of the same here. Just sequels and high budget AAA games (...err sequels for the most part I guess). I'm sure many indie and other third party developers may put off by this, especially if the games don't cost exactly, or more, that PS3 games cost to purchase. Why develop PS3'ish budget-required titles at handheld prices? Doesn't sound like a sound business decision.

On the other hand, allowing certain big companies to streamline their technologies and engines onto a handheld could be fairly exciting for the big boys. One more place to port shit. Good for the big boys, sucks to be the little guy.

Also, I imagine the battery life of a handheld that is supposedly PS3 powerful will last a good 20 minutes no matter what kind of nuclear powered lithium ion battery you put in there. It's all assumption of course. Still, the term portable is going out the window if it has to be plugged into the wall most of the time. That goes for the 3DS too.

A somewhat unexpected topic for the first public discussion but I'm interested none the less. The audio in the Thief franchise has always been AAA. Shalebridge Cradle, the pinnacle of audio perfection.

12. Re: FINAL FANTASY XIV Reboot Plans Jan 3, 2011, 16:40 Cram
I appreciate this comment, but the issues in this game stem from its very foundation that the game is built on. To fix a number of these major issues, they would almost completely have re-do this game from the ground up.

Nerian wrote on Jan 3, 2011, 16:12:
Um, remember a game called Anarchy Online? Had a much worse start than this and was decently popular for a while..

Just saying. As long as they're really willing to fix the issues, the game will pick up.

Was this an actual and real response from the producer of a game in this company's flagship series? The last part is absolutely ridiculous, but that part about the questionnaire....are you telling us you still don't know what is wrong with your game and now need player feedback? Now? You're telling us not one Square employee has actually played the game and/or read a SINGLE Japanese or North American review of this game?

Really? REALLY?!

I've been a Die-hard FF fan since '90 when FF1 came out on the NES in North America (up until '01). I've been calling for the end of Final Fantasy for almost decade since the release of FFX.

Fucking go away! Square, you ruined this shit 10 years ago. Stop it! Why are the sheeple still buying this trash? STOP! It's over people! It's not Final Fantasy anymore and hasn't been for 10+ years! Why is this garbage still selling in every part of the world!? They aren't even good general JRPGS anymore!

News Comments > Diablo III Encounters
10. Re: Diablo III Encounters Dec 22, 2010, 13:14 Cram
I think this encounters post demonstrates Blizzard is as least trying to take the extremely simplistic and boring and juice it up a bit. They acknowledge the situation.

The removal of potions as your main source of health (and slapping them with a cooldown), IMO, should make some battles far more frantic as well (wtb more health orbs!) and should address your issue with the keyboard button quick health regen.

You're right about the doorway thing, I hope that is addressed and I think it can be. For example: destructible environments, make many walls supporting doors destructible and make enemies smart enough to destroy those walls themselves so they can quickly overwhelm you if you're using that doorway technique. It's just some random quick idea, and I'm sure Blizzard could come up with something far better.

Overon wrote on Dec 22, 2010, 12:47:
I must be the only poor soul in the whole world who thought the gameplay in diablo 1 and diablo 2 was extremely simplistic and boring: It consisted of holding down left click to spam attacks. Then when your health or mana got low, pressing a button on your keyboard for quick health regen or mana regen. Then you would do the same thing for hours until the end of the game. The greatest strategy was to force enemies through a doorway one at a time so they couldn't surround you easily.

Anything blizzard can do with diablo 3 to add more to the gameplay would be appreciated for people like me who want slightly more sophisticated gameplay.

News Comments > More World of Warcraft Hotfixes
2. Re: More World of Warcraft Hotfixes Dec 15, 2010, 14:51 Cram
You're right, as an ex-pally that frequented the pally forums it is an absolute mess of 90% complainers and 10% people complaining about the complainers......wait am I talking about Bluesnews? j/k

Maybe the pally's are the worst, but having been in a diverse guild the bitching about nerfs, IMO, extends to every class (which one would assume would be obvious). To help other members of the guild of other classes, I would look into other classes official forums and it was always just as bad in there.

The only time I completely lost it was during, i believe, 3.3 when they shadow/stealth nerfed paladins HP. Perhaps they did have a bit too much, but Blizzard simply implemented a hotfix out of the blue and never made a post about it. I went into an instance with about 37000 hp and came out with 34500hp. Blizzard never said a word till well after it happened. As you can see, I'm still bitching about that and I don't play anymore lol.

Wallshadows wrote on Dec 15, 2010, 13:11:
Paladins are ticked off that they got nerfed to use more than 10% of their mana. Then again, Paladins are always ticked off about something; it's like a community event.

2. WoW ownership Dec 15, 2010, 14:39 Cram
This digital download age, and larger legal departments, have really brought more light to this.

I've always known that a game I buy is not mine. It's intellectual property that solely belongs to the developer and/or publisher. I think I understood this even during the NES days when I got into gaming as a kid. I also thought it was common knowledge by now that using bots or third party programs that give you an advantage, one not programmed into the game and that others do not possess, is going to get you in some kind of trouble. Every single one of these people knows what they're doing is against the rules, and fighting back when you get caught is, in my opinion, about as stupid as arguing against a DUI when you've failed every test and needed to go to the hospital to have your stomach pumped.

A bit off topic, what gave me some sense of ownership of a game was owning a physical copy of the product because I knew I could trade it with friends, at the store or flat out sell to those same people or on Ebay. I do not like that the digital age is slowly taking a lot of that away from me with one-time CD keys and non-redistributable/sellable digitally downloaded software. It's fully the publishers right though, I just wish they weren't selling the digital download for the EXACT same (or sometimes higher) price then the physical products which I assume require higher production and logistical costs.

I can't really think of a single core Wii game that wouldn't have been made better with the GameCube controller instead of the Wii controller. But for every game dozen games like that you get a real piece of genius like WarioWare.

While a little offtopic, and being of my own personal opinion, there were two games on the Wii I found substantially improved with the WiiMote: Metroid Prime III & Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition. Both games have classic controller roots, I found the WiiMote a superior option for both games. Unfortunately....that's about it and that's sad for a system that is going into its 5th year.
