Damn right, the idiots said they had an anouncement, not the shite going on now/

I believe the exact words were "special message" not a "news announcement."

Agreed. With this nonsense and The Secret World beta requiring a Facebook account, WTF is wrong with these idiots.

It's called fun, guys. Some people enjoy the out-of game games. May want to try it.

Sheesh.

While I realize the graphics are doped down (800x600), I find it totally amazing that this game is playable on my Ion-based Netbook (Asus 1215N).

If I could control the games on a PS3 or X360 with kb/m, I'd buy a console

Why would I waste money on a 360 when I can play the majority of those games on the PC with better graphics and still be using either kb/mouse or the 360 gamepad depending on the game?

Your reasoning is simply idiotic.


Sorry, Krovven, but I'd have to agree with El Pit on this. If a PC and an Xbox can run the exact same game, and, let's be honest here, it doesn't look all that different, why WOULDN'T I switch if I had a KBM option? The differences in visuals are minutae. And the advantage of playing in a bigger screen with a better sound system is very compelling.

The hardware is cheaper. The games can be sold/traded. There are far fewer bugs. I can rent a game before I buy it...or choose only to rent it for a once- through.

There are really only 2 things holding me back:

1. They don't have KBM controls.
2. Customized matchmaking such that I play people I want to.

And (1) leads (2) by far as (2) is more application dependent.

Right now I have both. I play probably 95% of my games on a PC, but I do enjoy Red Dead Redemption on my 360.

Just my $0.02

Isn't he talking about the same thing you guys lament Gamestop for over and over? Being greedy in looking to remove the publisher/Developer from revenue by offering used game sales?

Swear Valve and Blizzard could sell babies on the black market and still be excused for it from gamers.

Who argues for that? Gamers want to sell used games. If it hurts Gamestop well, sucks to be Gamestop. If developers/publishers think they deserve profit after profit then they're extremely short-sighted - and it sucks to be them too.

Believe it or not, I actually have no problem with the publisher/Dev getting a slice of the resale. In fact, I think that is a good thing, because it will provide a metric not just on what games sell, but what games endure, and what their perceived value is over time.

I also believe that part of what is being sold is the "experience" the game gives an individual, and when itcomes to games like Deus Ex, fallout, and the like, I really would like to see a Dev rewarded for "replay value," because those revs deserve long term survival.

IMO.

No, he's just making the same MISTAKE Gamestop did.

Hey, Gabe, I want to be able to sell or give the games I no longer play to others on Steam. Don't muddy it up with trade-in value. Let us set the price, and you guys take a commission off the top for the service.

Simple.

THE WALL RUN
One of the buggiest of the Doom bugs. By strafe running along a wall from South to North (North is up on the map), you can achieve a speed best described as ridiculous. Wall running is allegedly 300% faster than strafe-running, which is 44% faster than running, which would be, um,...well, you get the idea. It's fast.

What a blast! I remember using that more than a few times at LAN parties. One of the few times using the BFG on the wall was a good idea

Seriously guys, why hate on this? Anything that brings attention to the PC platform is a good thing, and love them or hate them, Razer invented the gaming mouse; were it not for them, we'd all still be using intellimouse clones.

It's bad enough that we're treated like a minority as it is :/

Just my $0.02.

PC gaming isn't dead...it's just really F-ing expensive.

Does look very nice though. Would look better if the lighting were blue.

Re: DXHR. Totally in love with it. I also found the true cause of the mouse lag. It appears to be specific to nVidia cards, an is due to the default setting of "3" for the "Maximum pre-rendered frames" setting under "manage 3D settings" in the control panel. If you set it to zero, everything works great. Turned SSAO back on in DXHR, and haven't had an issue since.

No idea why you would actually want to render ahead in an FPS, anyway.

Lonesome Road sounds pretty cool.

Is it bad that I'm sort of already wanting to see screens of the next Fallout game on the Skyrim engine? I mean, it hasn't even been announced.



Nah. I'm waiting for the same thing.

Parallax Abstraction wrote on Aug 25, 2011, 09:09:
Apple did copy/steal a lot of stuff in the early days but I agree with you that it's silly to say everything they're releasing now is just a copy of someone else's work.

Design by iteration lends itself to that-people claim that things are stolen, that aren't. Case in point: People claimed Apple "stole" the mouse. It didn't. Xerox PARC didn't patent the idea, (in fact, their management didn't even think it was patentable), so Apple got an idea and ran with it on the Lisa/Mac. I'd argue that the closest to stealing that we have seen was the abysmally low amount of money Gates paid the guy that actually wrote DOS back in the early 80's.

The only comment I wanted to address is your shoddy sweatshop one because that's definitely not something Apple is above. Their #1 manufacturing partner is Foxconn, a company with a long-reaching horrendous reputation for abusing and exploiting workers. They recently had a rash of suicides at the factory that makes the iPad because people were being forced to work 20 hour days with no overtime, being verbally and physically abused and like many Chinese factories, the majority of the little money they did make went into paying for the factory provided quarters which make slums here look like the Ritz Carlton. Their solution? Install nets so that people who attempted suicide wouldn't succeed. A lot of companies use Foxconn so Apple isn't alone on that front but Apple has the power to improve conditions for the people who build their stuff and frankly, doesn't care.

I agree. The suicides are appalling. But the other thing you have to keep in mind are social differences between our countries (Asian countries take shame very seriously), as well as asking yourself "Is China the only place someone ever killed themselves over a problem at work or at home?"

Having been to a Foxconn factory in Shenzen (and a few other factories that aren't Foxconn's) for a previous company, I can tell you that the people at Foxconn are far better off than they would be in a factory without any American influence. Change in China happens slowly and over time. A part of affecting that change is that the American companies insist on fair working conditions, safety standards, and processes and procedures that protect the workers. There are two sides to this coin, and it's never a simple issue. And the press always takes the sensational route that sells airtime or papers.

Additionally, keep in mind the fact that on a corporate scale, no one can tell the Chinese government to do anything. HP, Dell, Tyco, Sony, Microsoft....all of them face the same issue of cost vs competitiveness, and while a stand may be a noble thing, it's business suicide in China. And a mistake that can kill a company.

Are the wages there low by American standards? You bet. But that's also the primary reason the jobs are there in the first place. Are the wages there high by Chinese standards? Again, yes. People here in North America tend to look at things in an absolute fashion, with demands for instant change. That almost never happens in reality.

Look, I'm not saying Apple (or any corporation) is an angel, but you can't blame (or believe) every bad thing you see about working conditions in some Chinese plants on them. The truth is, they are trying to pull it up, because as anyone that's worked in manufacturing knows that a motivated, healthy workforce makes the best quality product. On the whole, based on what I hear from friends that work there, Apple does work your ass off, but they also treat them extremely well.

To me it's kind of like another issue: I always shake my head at the guy complaining about illegals taking jobs away,while they sit on their ass all day, collecting unemployment and buying groceries with Food Stamps rather than taking a job at Wal*Mart or working on a farm. I abhor hypocracy.

But that really wasn't my point: My point was I'm glad to see an American company succeed in this economy, rather than a company taking all our money offshore.
