The Horse Armor pack?

Not nearly that useless, but certainly not a tremendous value either. Still, some of the guns and new mods are pretty cool.

Some significant changes to combat going on there. Glad I will always have the launch version on-hand with my GOG backup.

From their FAQ, which is quite amusing in the ways it lies about what Live allows you to do and doesn't force you to do. (I've NEVER been able to play a GfWL game without being forced to sit through their interminable, PS3-like updates, and they happily claim that you never have to update if you don't want to.)

You can refuse updates with an offline profile.

So, four then. For a game that pretends to be an RPG, that's a pathetic amount of gameplay.So it's not even as cheap as you make it out to be.

Just wait for the inevitable $2.50 sale price.

Not sure why they aren't releasing the new gun pack on the same day. I want to use those guns in the new DLC, obviously.

(In my testing, it appears that Tranq shots to the shoulders and above kill instead of knockout.)

That didn't happen to me at all. I tranqed guys in the head on a several occasions and still got the Pacifist achievement.

Some gang members in Detroit do die if you shoot them in the head with tranqs for some reason. I know the one outside that apartment for the dirty cop quest does. I got the pacifist achievement anyway though, so I think it is just a label error.

That is one of my biggest problems with DLC. I ended up putting 45 hours into DE, but I am done with now.

Exactly. And as a loyal fan I will likely buy it, but then it will either wait for me to play the whole game again or it will be done in 3 hours and leave me wanting.

I miss expansions for a lot of reasons, but length is a big one. An expansion gave you real reason to break the game out again. Some DLC like Fallout: New Vegas' does that, but few others.

It's pretty weird that Wadjet doesn't sell their games on any distribution service aside from Minmax. I thought Gemini Rue was great and I'm pretty sure a lot more people would know about it if it was at least on Steam.

Steam have rejected all their games, he talks about it on their forum and elsewhere. I think they are up on Gamersgate.

I'm not going to publish all of Bethesda for this because a) 99% of their staff have nothing to do with it and b) US copyright law is so fucked I'm not even sure their lawyers are wrong to be concerned.

Looking forward to it, though I do lament these short DLCs coming out months after I have finished the game. It feels so forced to go back and play a game you finished for 2-3 more hours, then stop again. For RPGs anyway.

I assume a demo is coming at some point? Going from a free version of the game to not even having a demo is kind of weird.

I'm sure it's great but I don't play racers much, so I need a demo.

If you are referring to OFRR then I donít understand what you are talking about. There was nothing laughable about the game. it was a good solid shooter and a lot of fun Coop. The only real annoyance I had with this game was the Loud mouth SSGT who cussed way too much and talked down to his troops like there were the lowest life form on the planet. The other was the locked down leash they had us on when trying to go out of bounds. OFDR was much better in this regard. Other then that the game was fun.

I was talking about Bodycount.

Looks wrong to me... the setting is not Max Payne at all and it looks sooooo muddy. Also despite getting the right voice it just doesn't sound like Max dialogue wise. Not to mention the action looks pretty standard.

We shall see though, I really do have an open mind.

Anyway, T:A looks pretty bad. They're trying to add a bunch of modern elements (health regen, classes, two-weapon limits, hitscan weapons, unlockables) that really are not exactly like previous Tribes game.

Fixed that for you.

Jerykk wrote on Sep 14, 2011, 01:58:
Oh, I already know that the PC version of any game will always look the best. I'm more concerned about the UI. The UI shown in the screenshots and videos of Skyrim is very clearly designed for consoles. I'd like to see what, if any, changes are being made for the PC version.

They said somewhere... on their forum or in an interview... that the PC will get its own UI this time. How true that is or what that means will of course be something we only know at release. I could see it happening though, I bet their PC sales have been steadily increasing with the rise of Steam and with cheaper tech versus relatively stagnant gpu requirements.

I doubt it will play like the PC was the main platform though, naturally. Bethesda does not hide the fact that the Xbox is their target market.

Really a shame to see this series driven into the ground like this. The original was a very good game with the "US patch" which toned down the stealth and limited arrows. The second one was great as a sort of CoD game in the wild west, and looked gorgeous.

Why they tanked the whole thing with this is beyond me.

If you're an Xbox gamer who uses a PC for non-gaming stuff this probably sounds awesome. I think their tablets and phones are going to use the same setup as well, which no doubt will also be seen as awesome by a lot of people.

It's not for me, and I will likely avoid it barring some amazing exclusive, but I get where they are going. The future is services for all your media and MS want to be a major player.
