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

I never understood the fascination with Halo....but then again, I never understood an FPS on a console...

Halo, yes, is vastly overrated. Gears of War, however, is not. I too generally believe that FPS on consoles are abominations. Gears of War is a very fun game and is good enough to make me forget about the fact that its a FPS on a console.

It's like Command and Conquer. Even if you're not an RTS fan, and I'm not, it's just one of those staple games that everyone should play. The same way everyone should play Freespace, Wing Commander, and Tie Fighter even if you're generally not into space sims.

Yep, MS sure is "rescuing" PC gaming by making their latest games Vista only.

In fact, it will have the exact opposite effect, pushing more gamers over to consoles.

It's such a crock of shit. It's in MS's best interests for you to have both a PC with their OS on it, AND a 360. Give me one good reason why MS would want you to save money and game on the PC when they can get you to shell out another 400 for a 360 plus the cost of games.

My problem with MMOs is that they have too much of a wish fufillment fetish that are too centered around becoming "uber"

I play games to escape, sure. But my ego is not so damned fragile that I have to play games where I'm always the most powerful or on the way to being the most powerful, but I think games cater to that mentality, that the player ALWAYS has to be the hero.

13. No subject Apr 30, 2007, 10:54 VoodooV
I haven't finished the SP campaign yet, but man, its seems that mammoth tanks are way too easy to make. Granted, they've saved my butt many times. But it makes predators and pitbulls seem pointless.

Thing is though, Did C&C3 ever promise any grand innovation of the genre? The whole game seems to me a nostalgia trip to recapture the fun of the original C&C and its working for me. I don't give a shit about the bad acting. I can't think of any game that had FMV that had "good" acting.

This is a "popcorn" game no more, no less. I don't think they set out to make the definitive RTS game to challenge Starcraft or whatever.

I'm just peeved at the 80 dollar price tag addition. That and the rip off that is the HD price.

Guess I'll be sticking with my premium until they actually can sell a quiet 360 with HDMI

So I take it Joss is the reason Shadowrun is an FPS, not an RPG.

I remember reading an article somewhere that they're trying to rush out SP1 as soon as possible to fool the skeptics into thinking "oooo, SP1 is out? Then it must be good now so I'll buy it"

Whatever, 2008 is way too soon. There should be adequate public outcry to go tell MS to fuck off.

You'd think they'd learn after the last time they tried to pull this. I'm pretty sure they tried to yank W2K support shortly after XP came out, or something else to that effect.

even if they did slash the price to a reasonable amount. What about backwards compatability? I haven't kept up to date on it, but last I heard, that was ass too!

Is there any point to the PS3 other than the Blu-Ray and the small amount of less-than-spectacular exclusives?

12. No subject Apr 8, 2007, 01:02 VoodooV
its such a double edged sword. We're cynical because we look at some of the bugs (in general, not C&C3 specifically) and wonder how the fuck anyone could miss that bug and we wish they'd have tigher QA.

But on the other hand, we know mistakes are human its good that some companies will man up and fix them AND as quickly as they have in the case of C&C3. Its a hell of a lot better than...say...KOTOR2?
