We’ll never see a game as engaging as System Shock 2 again

Translation: Any game that requires more buttons than a console controller offers is obviously too complex for the masses to comprehend.

You mean I have to press "I" to look at my inventory?? ZOMG!! my brain hurtz!

sorry, but screenshots mean dick. The fact that they refer to this game a shooter first and an RPG second is enough to make me not place any idiotic faith in pre-hype.

give me a demo, or else you've got nothing.

How exactly do these screenshots ease the fear of consolitis? Consolitis is in how the game plays, not how the game looks.

I pride myself on my ability to multitask, but damn. Who can possibly be against this ban?

but on the other hand...how can they possibly enforce this short of activating the GPS in your cell and noting that the cell was moving 60mph while the txt was sent

Don't forget the fundamental rule that the more someone objects to porn or claims that they never touch it, they usually end up having bigger, more raunchier, collections of porn than anyone else.

I tend to agree with Charlie Six that we're all a bunch of hypocritical bastards. The porn industry has to get all their money from somewhere and it can't be just a relatively few people with large wallets. It has to be widespread.

7. Re: 40GB PS3 Jul 26, 2007, 20:44 VoodooV
 
Tumbler I have to disagree. One of the reasons I would purchase a PS3 is cause I have never owned a PS2 and there are so many titles for it I would purchase.

Huh?! you want to buy a PS3 so you can play PS2 games???? Dude, let me help you out a bit. If you want to play PS2 games, buy a...PS2.

You'll get a hell of a lot more value out of a PS2 than you will a PS3. Might even have some money left over to buy games with too!

as for the HD-DVD drive. Sorry to both Sony and MS, I don't give a shit if you guys are giving the drives away. I'm not touching any of the formats until this pathetic "war" is over

Hell even that isn't a guaruntee. neither format adds anything dramatically important enough to me to upgrade.

1. so.. Jul 25, 2007, 12:55 VoodooV
 
so why should I buy Vista if there is yet another OS on the way?

XP has been around for a long time, why the fuck should I upgrade to Vista, only to upgrade to the next OS in a few years.

Moore's Law is not a law for christ's sake!

It's an extremely intelligent observation that's managed to hold up for a very long time, but it's not a law.

I'm sure Arena will be a marginally enjoyable game, but christ! Yet another raping of a once great franchise.

That's been said for countless years and it has proved wrong everytime so far.

That's not entirely true. For the longest time, the best video cards went no higher than 200 bucks. TN2, TNT2, even the earlier Voodoo add on cards. It only broke the bank if you wanted to go the full SLI route.

but it's like everyone else has said. no one needs these 600 dollar cards. you're deluding yourself if you think you do. There is a difference between building a high end gaming computer and building an expensive computer just because you've got money burning a hole in your pocket.

SLI is a waste of money, so are dedicated Physics cards. Inevitably, all that stuff is going to get rolled into a single card.

what KOTOR needs is simply to amp up the difficulty. Greatest game ever, but way too flippin easy.

I know this would turn off the lowest common denominator but I want to see some developer simulate real fencing to some degree when it comes to sword fighting games like KOTOR.

I'm tired of just mashing down the master feat buttons and blowing everyone away with my glow stick. I want some added challenge.

I know nothing about real fencing so ill admit I don't know how it should be done, but I wish they could implement a way where if you're a beginning character, you possibly know some basic attacks and blocks and whatever, but as you level up, or learn from masters, you learn better techniques. and I'm not talking about what was done in KOTOR2, where it simply gives you a modifier to your rolls or whatever. I want it to mix in a LITTLE action where you have to actually execute the maneuvers and depending on what blocks/attacks you use and how good you are at them, and how good your opponent is in the same thing will determine your success or how much damage you take/receive.

I dunno. Just wish there was a bit more depth to games involving RPG melee combat. that and KOTOR was just way too easy.

I'm sorry, I can't play the mac version of Gears of War, I'm too busy being an elitist asshole and making lame analogies equating PCs to John Hodgeman.

I keed, I keed

I actually might get this. I played Aftermath. While it wasn't horrible, it was quite disappointing. What kind of honked me off was that they advertised the game as a spiritual successor to X-com, it was advertised all over the box. But when people got ahold of the game and realized it wasn't that good. They backpedaled and tried to say that you can't compare Aftermath and X-com, that they're two separate games that have nothing to do with each other. erm. Wait a minute.

Seeing all the craze over the iPhone makes me wonder, what ISN'T overpriced these days?

Easy solution to that: Don't buy it.

Despite the hardware failures and the high cost. You still get far more value out of the 360 than the PS3 right now. Both Sony and MS are guilty of pushing the price point farther than they ever have before. The PS3 is really suffering from it. It's good to see that people are finally starting to say, "Whoa there, I like my entertainment, but not for $600.

Once the "High Def" craze has calmed down, I doubt the next generation of consoles will be so highly priced. Especially with the Wii demonstrating that you don't have to have cutting edge graphics to make a fun console.

News Comments > Vista Halo 2 Delayed Again
18. No subject May 24, 2007, 13:00 VoodooV
 
Halo 1 for PC was a horrible...horrible port. Ran like ass on PCs that were far superior to the Xbox hardware and there was inexcusable audio bugs for people who had Sound Blaster cards, which, back then, was a lot!

now if Starcraft 2 was Vista only? that would actually be a app people give a shit about and WOULD upgrade for despite Vista's pitfalls
