481  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: BFG going out of business? on: July 08, 2010, 02:13:24 PM
They were discussing this over at Hard OCP. Apparently nvidea just really screwed things up. They had a 6 month gap with no new tech, then when they did get it out they made vendors buy tons of old cards to get supplies of the new stuff, at least at first. BFG was in no position to do that and had no new tech to sell for almost a year. Combined with fact that PC games are no longer on the crazy need to upgrade and there you go. I will miss them. Still using a BFG 8800gt and am able to play everything at 1680 with no problem.

Thanks Caine! Bioware really packed a ton of content into this game!
483  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / ME2 question on: July 07, 2010, 03:33:06 PM
I know I am lttp on this. I am really enjoying this more than any game since Bioshock 1. I feel kinda guilty because I feel like I am only seeing about 30% of all the content they have packed in. Anyway, my question is this. There are tons of of links to other systems every time you go to one system. Are there missions out there? Or are the only missions the ones you get added to your journal during the course of play. I know talking to everybody you can on your team and on your ship adds a lot of missions. Are there missions hidden in places that have never been mentioned?
Martin Sheen's character and voice acting are the best.

OH GOD HELP ME!!!!!

I'm in need of a ammo cheat! I'm in D6 and have ZERO ammo for my guns. I can find a lot of 5.75 ammo down there but i don't have a gun for it. I'm stuck with a knife and trying to get Miller alive through all those damn amebas with a knife is not possible. All I need is some ammo. i don't need god mode or anything. I dont see having some ammo as a cheat. The game is very selfish with ammo it seems.

Sorry don't know of an ammo cheat. You are in the worst section of the game. Probably have to reload an old save. There is some ammo in a cabinet before you first encounter the blobs. Have you found that?

Okay that one worked. Uh....meh. Didn't see anything that grabbed me, and I'm not a fan of spawn points.
488  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Arcania: Gothic 4 on: June 19, 2010, 07:20:27 PM
I wonder about this. To me the PB boys just have a certain something no one else has and Gothic is one of my favorite series ever. I'm skeptical another dev can capture that. But at least it's another rpg to play and I can never get enough of those.

So how is the multiplayer part shaping up with this beta? Is the Client Server thing active yet?

They aren't testing multiplayer yet, other than connectivity.  I was able to connect to a multiplayer game (vs AIs on their servers).  The game itself didn't go so well, there were multiple issues (popping units, units that wouldn't move when ordered, etc.)  They didn't promise anything for multiplayer just yet though, so I wouldn't worry about it yet either.

It does make me wonder about their proposed ship date in August, though.
They have stated that they have internal builds that are far ahead of what they are showing for the betas. the betas are just to test certain features.

Does that video stop dead about 1 minute in for anybody else?
491  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Onlive beta on: June 19, 2010, 03:31:07 PM
The real test will be if they manage to get hot new games on release, and if hoards of people trying to play them at the same time don't bring the whole thing to a crawl. They don't have critical mass to be able to judge it yet.
492  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Onlive beta on: June 16, 2010, 03:19:07 PM
Interesting. most of the biggies but I thought there would be more games to choose from. I'm very interested to see if this will work. I still don't think it will, but I'm rooting to be proven wrong.
493  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Elemental: War of Magic on: June 11, 2010, 08:03:44 PM
I think the game looks really cool. I have no desire to beta test at all. Seems like it would ruin the game for me. I will be there on Aug 24th or Feb, which ever one the release date is.
494  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mafia II on: June 09, 2010, 06:12:28 PM
I just enjoy teasing you about your monster rig as I am jealous. In all seriousness, I'm sure you will have to see how much nvidia physics adds versus playing the game with everything else maxed.

luckily I still have my other rig, which has nVidia.  it only has one GPU though.

Hah!! So you might not be able to use your beast on this game after your throwdown?
496  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Elemental: War of Magic on: June 09, 2010, 04:29:17 PM
I think the release date comes down to how well and fast Brad can program the AI. He is the sole AI programmer for the game. He has been recently quoted as saying the AI is currently at a 2 out of 10. They won't ship it like that-duh. So he either gets it in shape by Aug 24th or we get it in Feb.

As for retail-although this sounds completely insane to me I still read all the time that impulse buys (not the digital company) are still king. By a long shot. I don't remember the last place I read that but if it wasn't true then then the retailers would not be able to charge for shelf space. I can't imagine  just sauntering in to a store and buy a game I know zero about and am not even sure if it will run on their system. That seems crazy yet it is still the most commomn way games are purchased.

No. They got rid of the always needing to be connected requirement a while ago.

Iwas real hot for this while it was in development and then got scared off by a few things. I'm going to try the new demo on the 11th for sure.

I really liked the first Kotor. Was scared to go near the sequel as everybody said how truncated it turned out to be.
501  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: My PC gaming backlog has gone critical! on: May 22, 2010, 02:40:56 PM
I am a buy one game and play til I finish type of guy. However, since I'm trying to buy games after they get price reductions, I'm getting a backlog. Still waiting for ME2 and BS2 to go down in price. So I picked up Necrovision for 5 bucks. It wasn't worth it. icon_cry Then I got Cryostasis cheap. I got stuck on the lamo mechanical spider. So I went to gog and got Arcanum, which I somehow never played back in the day. Just into it a tad overwhelmed by all the choices, but I'm enjoying it so far. However, I think I'm going to break my principles for Alpha Proticol. it just sounds way to cool.

Back in April when I posted I did some research into the release date and the liklyhood of them hitting it. The date is Sept 2010. And all indications are that they are still on track for that. Yay!
505  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dead Space 2 confirmed for PC on: May 13, 2010, 07:35:09 PM
I wonder why they origionaly said that they weren't doing PC then changed course. I'm glad they did, I'm just curious as to what changed in the buisness case.
506  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Metro 2033 on: May 12, 2010, 08:18:29 PM
I was hpoing for some new areas to explore and maybe more interactions with the Dark Ones. This ain't that.

there's some DLC that is almost done but they're keeping their lips sealed on what it is.

Yeah, trying to decide if I want to torture myself more or not. Guess it depends on what it turns out to be.
508  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dead Space 2 confirmed for PC on: May 12, 2010, 02:42:44 PM
Beat me to this, youre just too fast. I had v sync on and didn't notice floaty controls. Hmmm... Really liked this game. First company to get checkpoints right ever. I could have done with a bit more creepy exploring and a bit less kill rooms, but that's picking nits.

Quote from: Fez on May 11, 2010, 03:17:29 PM

I've had just a few issues here and there.  I, and many other people running 64-bit operating systems, can't seem to get Dragon Age to work very well as it sporadically crashes to desktop after playing for a while.  It's especially annoying to have this during a long cutscene that involves one or more fights, thus giving you no chance to save.  I'm on Vista 64-bit, with an Alienware M17x having 4GB Ram and 280M cards in SLI.  Strangely, other games by Bioware have not caused me any issues, so it's clearly something to do with the new engine in Dragon Age.

Just the joy of the PC. I played DA on Vista 64 and had no problems with crashes at all. I did have the DLC bug but that has nothing to do with the OS.

Can you play this single player or not? Will your partner be a bot? The articles aren't really clear.
511  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Two Worlds: The Temptation now Two Worlds 2 on: May 04, 2010, 08:19:30 PM
it was a hit? it seemed most of the people here and at QT3 just yawned at best and many actively disliked it. I can't get enough rpg's and played the first one to finish. Can't remember a thing about it but I guess I liked it enough to finish.
512  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Hydrophobia on: April 28, 2010, 04:48:07 PM
I liked the graphics and overall idea. But those vids looked like a bunch of try and die stuff. It looked easy because of course the guy demoing it knew the pathways. Trying to swim to saftey and dying over and over until you find the correct door, ladder, etc, doesn't seem like a lot of fun to me.

just finished it up, luckily D6 wasn't that hard after I accidentally blew up a blob spawner and realized they could be taken out.  could have done without the quick time event lite moments at the end, and I youtubed the 'good' ending.  all in all it would have been a better game had they made it open like STALKER and not a straight up shooter.

wouldn't it have been cool to creep around the old ruined library perhaps finding some old reports that explained some of what happened or other interesting exposition? You could still have monsters pop out now and then. Instead, we get to run around like a maniac looking for the exit fleeing monsters that for all intents and purposes cannot be killed. Yech!
515  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Arcania: Gothic 4 on: April 23, 2010, 06:18:23 PM
"Gothic has always been know for it's unpredictable story line."   Wait, what? the screenshots look okay, but I don't believe JoWood and these guys can pull this off. While I know lots of people have had major issues with Pirhana Bytes, the Gothic Devs, The games always ran fine for me. Gothic is one of my favorite series and I doubt these guys will have that magic.
516  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dead Space confirmed for PC(IGN hands on 9/8) on: April 19, 2010, 05:12:34 PM
Arise thread! The only bummer to my new plan of waiting til games drop in price is that the threads are often long dead by the time I play, unless I get a great deal like Metro 2033.
Just resurecting to say I am really enjoying this game. Great atmosphere and action. I like the rpg elements of upgrading your character, with choices always being a tradeoff. And this is the only checkpoint game that works! it must save automaticaly at some points as well as the save stations because I've had a couple of sudden deaths and been revived right before the scene. This game has been a joy to play. Too bad the sequel is console only.
517  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Metro 2033 on: April 16, 2010, 03:05:45 PM
Not to change this into a Dead Space thread, but..... I screwed up the save. I got the game as a budget title with no paper inside at all, just a disc. If it put the manual on my hd someplace I sure can't find it. It's okay I figured, it's jsut a 3rd person shooter basicaly, I can pick it up as I go along. I saw the camera icons on the map but I didn't realise I had to interact with them to create a save Roll Eyes. Duh. So today when I tried to reload all I got was no data. So I got to replay the first 15-20 min or so. At least I didn't have more time in.

Well, I certainly have a problem if I am under time pressure-dinner, family obligation, time to go to work, etc, and I don't want to start a level because I'm niot sure I will reach a save point and lose my progress. But that's minor and I will live with that. If I hit any sections where it makes me tear my hair out with repeats I will let you know.
