Where is Tomb Raider? Why is Just Cause 2 in this list? (Not because it's bad but old...)

No way, he's porting the game to make money for a living (and develop new games). Shame on him! So he won't get a dime from me and I will spend all my money on EA games. Ah, I feel much better now!

Remember, the dev is the douche who said precious stuff as this. Now that his console incursion didn't bring him that much money he's back to PC gamers, hoping people forget how much of a douchenozzle he was.

No, I haven't forgotten absolutely nothing. I also saw "Indie Game: The Movie" and do know that he is a very egocentric and introverted person who has hardly his life in control... but hey, he made FEZ and FEZ is an amazingly fun game, so I will support him, especially because he IS a real indie developer.

Wasn't he supposed to finish DF's kickstarter Adventure together with Tim Schafer? At least, that was one of the reasons why I backed them up...

Obviously not working for Nvidia or Nixes (the team who did the port) who knows what build they got and when? I highly doubt however Nvidia would want to give AMD a free hand up by not making sure a big AAA release like TR is, runs well on their hardware. And with all the fuss about ATI and TressFX hair bullshit, I wouldn't be shocked if they worked closer with ATI than Nvidia on this particular sku.

That's precisely the feeling I got too. It looks like ATI was working way closer with the studio than nvidia did and most probably even taking care that nvidia would not receive the latest builds, to make them look bad since TressFX is an AMD technology.

Now nvidia is playing catch up with the optimizations but luckily for them, TressFX is not the big revolution AMD wants it too be and in a few weeks performance will again be even between nvidia and AMD... but as long as the hair is gliding 5 inches above Lara skin, I wil not even dare to enable this technology, it looks fake and cheap for the moment.

To be fair, nvidia played this trick a few times with AMD/ATI in the old days, forcing a developer to use nvidia technology, just to make the competition look worse (Farcr HDR patch, physx, ultrashadow, etc...)

Anyone who bought Trackmania2 Canyon, use your key on Steam and you'll get the game on Steam.

Thanks for the tip, that worked perfectly.

If I ever decided to buy another game from Nadeo, I can now gladly skip the crappy ManiaPlanet...

Some people actually like single player games and don't need someone else to tell them when they're having fun. I know it comes as a shock to you, but a fair number of people even enjoyed Skyrim. Amazed

Absolutely correct, I started playing multiplayer games since dwango for Doom, got my share out of it and now since almost 10 years, I'm back again playing purely SP games. There is nothing like a great single player experience. MP and coop so far has been only good for short moments of fun but a great SP experience lasts forever. I can get much deeper into the game than like I could if I had to wait for friends to connect to the coop MOD and wait for the them to do things they are supposed to do.

Was hoping DS2 would be a nice SP game, like the first one, looks I gonna wait for 20$ sale on this one...

Unreal II didn't have the ground-breaking visuals, multiplayer, and moddability of the original Unreal, but it's still a great game, and it is a better single-player game than the original Unreal if you value story and dialog.

I agree with everything you said above (even the unquoted part) but Unreal 2 was missing the one thing which made Unreal 1 very special for me: The feeling of being stranded on a alien planet, exploring strange locations and technologies, discovering an unique world.

Unreal 2 might have the better story, or weapons, or combat, or enemies but it completely lacks the special feeling like the first time you escape the spaceship in the beginning, hearing the MOD soundfile and being amazed by the landscape and the beautiful waterfal. I remember the first time I dived into a river in Unreal, being completely overwhelmed of the watereffects, the fishes, the "unreal" world you just happen to experience.

None of this was offered Unreal 2. It's the same complaint I have to make against Half-Life 2 eventhough by its standard it was also a great FPS... but again, it completely lacked the feeling Half-Life 1 had to offer.

Definitely, or at least do another Unreal SP game using the Unreal 1 universe (I'm still trying to erase Unreal 2 from my memory)

Just finished Darkness II. It's good, quite a lot of fun when you get used to the controls. Non-stop action although in contrast to the first game, this is one is linear and the alternative, shadow world is completely gone.

Graphics are not as realistic and dark as in the first game, because they went here for more a cell-shaded, comic style look but the game is definitely still very enjoyable while it lasts.

Some moments with Jenny are even extremely well executed and the bad ending is not be missed.

Well worth 10-15$

PS: Forget to add, if you choose the bad ending, do not skip the credits...

Absolutely correct. It's so easy, just do what you do best and it's definitely not MMOs.

"Free-to-play" as in "more expensive in the end if you add up everything as games used to be just a few years ago"?

So are losses which are in line with projections good losses? Those managers never cease to amaze me.

That's really easy, if a company is making a loss, they just have to expect it and then it's ok!
