I never paid any attention to DR3 because it was a console exclusive. Was it the same as DR2?
It is the same in spirit, but it is both vastly superior and slightly inferior to DR2/OTR. The controls are greatly improved over DR2's clunky movement and there's so many more opportunities to murder zombies. On the downside, the story and new lead character are both boring. Nick is lame compared to Frank/Chuck.

But really, I don't understand all the haters. Dead Rising (all three games) is CRAZY FUN. DR3 coming to PC is fantastic news, period! It's the Saints Row of zombie games, so bring it on.

PS: just let it go about DR2 using GFWL...that was then...at least now everyone is embracing Steamworks (except those idiots at EA and Ubisoft...).

So we still see, unfortunately, the gamut of ignorance when it comes to frame rates and perception in video games...
Quoted for truth! I hate these marketing lies about FPS. They should just say the truth: we wanted to make the game look good and the consoles can't do 60 FPS unless you strip your game bare.

And yeah, I miss my old CRT, but my Samsung 120Hz is decent enough. I hope someday everyone will understand higher FPS is ALWAYS better. But there are players out there claiming 30 FPS is more "realistic"...sigh...the level of ignorance is unbelievable.

I did try one [120Hz], and honestly, while it is very nice, I didn't feel it was worth the substantial difference in price.
What games did you play? I should have said I meant try it for fast-paced games, since obviously it makes no difference for general Windows usage. But for games like Call of Duty (90 FPS cap sadly) or Devil May Cry or other very fast action games (that allow 60+ framerate), the difference is incredible assuming you play at a competitive level.

Does it look good, or is it similar to the "soap opera" effect that you get on the 120hz TVs that do frame interpolation; where it looks "off" or unnatural. Do you know the effect I am referring to? My screen is only 60hz, so I can't tell if this video accurately represents it, but here is an example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B_dE6HPIAJM
Real 120Hz or 144Hz monitors don't have any of that so-called soap opera effect. That effect occurs when using fake interpolation and major overdrive on cheap LCD screens.

I personally have a Samsung S27A950D 27" 120Hz monitor and it is so smooth and fantastic. This whole framerate issue has been mucked up by TV manu's who cheat with interpolation. The thing is the content must be able to truly render in higher framerates, which TV shows cannot do since they are prerendered at 24/30 FPS.

Games on the other hand, using real-time engines can render on the fly at 120/144 frames. Anyway TVs simply cannot be compared to monitors.

Bottom line: try a 120/144Hz monitor and it will blow you away and you won't ever want to go back to a lame 60Hz.

To echo others: RDR = BEST.GAME.EVER. John Marston = BEST.CHARACTER.EVER. I bought a PS3 just to play it! Worth it!

Polygon's article "Finding John Marston" nearly brought a tear to me eye. That guy should have won an Academy Award for his performance.

No shit? Lost vikings, I haven't played that since I think the SNES. I always wished they'd made another game based on that.

But Blizzard did make Lost Vikings 2...

Anyway, The Lost Vikings, such a classic! Man I loved that game way back. I will have to play it again, although who knows how it will hold up.

I absolutely adore Dead Island. I know it got lots of flak for the sort of lackluster PC port/controls, but it has some of the most insanely fun co-op zombie killing ever. The combination of weapons and stunning resort location make the game a must-play IMHO.

Still the best FPS shooter on the market right now; however, we're getting to the point where it reminds me of LOL before they really nailed down the matchmaking system.
Totally agree on both points. Titanfall is the best, but I personally don't play it because I'm so tired of arbitrary matchmaking. I don't understand why they don't implement a Starcraft II style ranking system and match players based on K/D, hours played, and win ratio and such.

I know this will be controversial, but I don't like how the game (and CoD games) lets a clan stack up 6 players in a party...the game should auto-adjust that to avoid complete pubstomps.

But proper matchmaking will never happen in FPS games I've decided...the developers just don't care enough...hence I'll stick to co-op games.

Singularity is a really great FPS, both gameplay-wise and story-wise. If you are a fan of HL1, HL2, BioShock, and so on, Singularity is worth playing.

The fun bullet-time stuff alone makes the game worth playing. The story, too, I think is vastly superior to BioShock Infinite and other hyped games.

Please do play Singularity. It's too bad it didn't sell well because in my opinion it is a classic FPS game.

I need to point out the new patch FIXES the horrible hit detection. This is such a huge plus since now monsters don't cheat and hit you from 10 feet away.

I absolutely love the no auction house and bind-on-account legendary items. Now I know people I play with have earned their stuff, rather than wasted money on it.

Overall, the patch is REALLY good. The smart loot system is very fun, ensuring you actually get good drops. Right now, without new content, the game is still a bit boring. But the expansion may in fact make D3 a VERY strong game, worth playing over the long haul.

Totally agree. It's easily my favorite game from the last few years, one of my favorites ever really.
Yeah, the attention to detail in Dragon's Dogma is mindblowing. Plus the balance and challenge is just perfect I think. I just hit level 185 and only now can I pretty much destroy anything Bitterblack throws at me. Very impressive how the game keeps giving you harder stuff but you learn more and get better gear.

And the economy is so well made. Others RPG you get tons of cash and very little to buy, but in Dark Arisen I've always been able to spend everything upgrading gear, including spending Rift Crystals, and yet I never feel like I don't have enough. So well balanced IMO.

My copy of Dark Arisen arrives here tomorrow. As much as I loved Dogma (I got it release week), Dark Arisen being standalone and $40 was a spit in the face to owners of the original.
Well...for me I got Dark Arisen for free on PS+...as much as I'm a hardcore PC guy, I must say PS+ is a phenomenal deal. So yeah, I'll end up with 200 hours in Dark Arisen, so even you buying it at full price is a great deal.

I still don't know how they produced Dragon's Dogma, the game doesn't repeatedly beg you for money or kick you in the nuts so it doesn't seem like it can really be a Capcom title.

I also am blown away by Dragon's Dogma. I just finished pretty much all the content (took over a hundred hours), and this game is so insanely good. I think the team who made it are the last real creative people at Capcom...the leftovers from the glory days of Breath of Fire 1 and 2 and so on.

And yes...although Dogma does put the DLC garbage in the first loading screens, it is really nice that there is absolutely no in-game DLC notices EXCEPT sadly from one key NPC at Bitterblack Isle (Capcom, you just couldn't resist, could you?).

Anyway, sorry to hijack, but Dragon's Dogma Dark Arisen is easily one of the greatest video games ever made in my opinion, not joking. I mean how can you not love a game that has your pawn minions shout out "YOU SHALL NOT CAST!" as they attack an enemy intoning a spell. Glorious.

Verno wrote on Jan 21, 2014, 12:12:
Hopefully they shipped the lighting engine this time.

Ha, very well said! I remember having to install countless mods to make RE4 look decent...tweak mods, huge texture packs, and huge movie packs ripped from the Wii release I believe since it was better than what shipped on the PC!

I just don't think I can handle suffering through RE4's bad controls and ugly graphics again...I did a 100% complete run of RE4 (including all side-stories) years ago and it got pretty tedious.

Any of us remember that insanely long one-on-one pure quicktime event fight toward the end? Ugh...quicktime cutscenes...
