Not a bunch of posts so I wonder if people are as unhappy with this as I am. It's really hard in spots, the performance likes to tank when enimies appear-I guess I have to turn down some quality settings, and checkpoint saves have indeed caused me to repeat some stuff over and over. Mainly, hey devs, mind if I play your game for a bit? Too many scripted events where I just have to follow someone elses lead for the whole scene.

This lack of save anywhere is starting to piss me off now. Im having to clear out a large area full of folk with automatic rifles and snipers. Not being able to save when I've killed a bunch of them and then dying and starting over pisses me off to no end. I thought Devs had learned their lesson by now?

"So, What do you think of the new boss?" Just great getting to hear that conversation abouty 12 times. Here is where missing save anywhere is a pain. And no, it does not save your progress on each exit. It goes back to the last point you got the disc in the lower left corner.

Good point about needing a ton of boxes or a ton of swapping to test all the vc's. I understand, and did not say it would be easy, just that the way it is is annoying.

I know how you feel Greg, the 8800 GTX isn't all that old either (At least, it doesn't feel that way, I can still play new games that I care about in 1920x1200 and that's good enough for now), and it'd be nice to see hardware sites (I'm looking at you HardOCP) compare previous gen hardware against current gen hardware for those of us who are a bit more conservative in our upgrades...

Funny, that's my card and I can still play most games in 1680x1050. I knocked Metro down to 1280 though. And yes Hardocp is a major offender. Again, the Steam data shows the vast majority of cards out there are older.
565  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Metro 2033 on: March 23, 2010, 07:03:28 PM
It bumms me out that my card is old enough that it is no longer included in any bench marks. Bleah. I can play around with settings and figure out what works but they seem to drop cards quick. I wish they would look at Steam or something and see what cards most people play on. Then again, these hot hardware sites maybe figure only graphic whores who update every 6 months look at the hardware sites.

By the way, what ever happened to "white Gold" that was supposed to be the next game by these devs.

I've not read this whole thread so maybe it was explained in it..don't really care...but I bought the game in the store..I have the DVD disc..yet when I go to install it is installing through STEAM and is downloading it..WTF?? This will take a bit. I have the dvd..wth.

They use steam for the DRM. it's on the box but not that obvious.  You have to have steam and steam authenticates your copy every time you start the game. Not sure if there is an offline mode or not. I wonder if this method has been cracked. Probably because afaik there is no foolproof drm.

Will this work on Vista 64 bit? Amazon has it for $10.84. I had a lot of interest in this when it was released but all the reported bugs scared me off.
570  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Metro 2033 on: March 22, 2010, 02:41:51 PM
I don't know, I'm a bit underwhelmed so far. Stalker had much more atmosphere imho. I still kinda feel like a visitor watching stuff. However, I'm still early and finaly got to the first section where I'm by myself-on the surface. Hoping it grows on me. I don't dislike it, I'm just not as into it as I thought I would be.

Oh Yeah baby! This is so Day one. I had a alot of fun with Desciples 2 gold and played it for a long time.

Crap! gogamer cancelled my preorder. Oh wait, that turns out to be good. How the hell do they have a preorder sale for $42.95 and then when the game hits the street it goes on sale for $35.42. That's nuts. Plus, I wanted to get Dead Space and now I can on the same order. No problem getting the imported edition of Dead Space, is there? In this case having my updated cc not matching the exp date they have on file will save me 7 bucks but I will have to wait a day longer. Please keep your reports on Metro coming and I will live vicareously until the mailman comes.

$60 for me = no buy. I'd be willing to try and live with the DRM. However, although I enjoyed the first game, I never got past the 9th mission(I think) where they send dozens of guards after you and you have to have the twitch skillz to kill them all icon_cry
576  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dragon Age is looking good! on: March 10, 2010, 09:35:00 PM
Did they ever fix the Shale bug? Where the game decided to stop recognising all your DLC? I finished the game and never went back largely because of that issue.
577  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Metro 2033 on: March 05, 2010, 09:46:47 PM
I've been having a lot of fun with the latest STALKER game, so picking this up is a no brainer.

DRM or no, I'm not up for $60 a game.

Might want to start getting used to the idea as it seems some brand new AAA titles on the PC are launching at that price now a days.  Once we get conditioned to it it will be the norm.  At least PC games go on sale and drop in price fairly quickly.  Almost all consloe games laucnh at that price and see mto stay there for quite awhile.  At  les the good ones anyhow and anything with Call of Duty in the title.  Hell iwaited for price drop on COD:WAW for PC for what seemed like a year.

Well then this is apparently the price point that will break me. Outside of the rare occasional game that really hits my sweet spot I will just wait for the price drop. Once I get in the cycle there will be a steady flow of cheaper stuff that I haven't played yet. I never really liked $49.95 and would usually wait for those to drop as well.
579  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Ubisoft unveils new copy protection system: on: March 03, 2010, 03:58:23 PM
Well-cracked without saves is not exactly cracked. Most people won't play it straight through or leave it active on their rig til they finish. At least I don't think enough would to affect opening month sales. But I could easily be wrong.

Okay, since I'm a forum member they sent me a link. Very cool. Still, no hint of any game play or release date.
582  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Metro 2033 on: February 19, 2010, 05:27:37 PM
I may still get it, but unfortunately it is not save anywhere but checkpoint driven.Player may have to repeat hard areas a few times.
583  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Project Offset new video on: February 19, 2010, 05:24:26 PM
Darn, broken link. They have been working on this game for over 5 years and have started over twice I think, once for sure. As far as I know they have never even said what the game is about. I will be interested when/if it ever see's the light of day.
584  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Is Far Cry considered a hard game? on: February 19, 2010, 04:49:57 PM
Funny, I first thought of FC2 and I was thinkling,no, not too tough. Far Cry on the other hand, was rather hard for me. I did die and reload a lot. Then, when it takes a twist 2/3rds or so into the game, it gets really hard. Some people found the last big set piece darn near impossible. I must have gotten lucky because I got through it okay.
585  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Hellion: Mystery of the Inquisition on: January 08, 2010, 06:37:55 PM
Damn you CeeKay! This game is right in my wheelhouse and now I have to wait a year or so to play it. Seriously, nice find. I guess The Witcher was kind of 3rd person middle ages but outside of that not a lot out there. Looks like a lot of fun.

Try checking some of your regular places where you sell stuff, or if you use containers either in Soldiers Peak or modded ones in the camp (which is pretty dangerous IMO)

nope, I definitely did not sell it or store it someplace since it was Stens main weapon (you cannot sell or store something that is equipped anyways) so I just used the Star Fang script, the rune script (to replace the 3 that were in the sword) and the enchantment script to get things back to normal.

Yeah it's a known bug. All of a sudden the game forgets the DLC stuff you did. I had Wardens Keep disappear from the map and then the guy that gives you the quest showed up with the quest again at my campsite. Also I could no longer talk to Shale as well. Rather irritating and still no official fix on the horizon.
587  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dragon Age is looking good! on: December 25, 2009, 06:50:39 PM
I finished this yesterday. Not sure how I feel about it. I mean it was fun, but I guess I just keep getting "epic" thrown at me and I don't think it's that at all. Here's my +'s and -'s for what ever it's worth.
Spoiler for Hiden:
decent story and it's nice to see how some of your choices affected things. Cool to level up and get access to new powers, get strong enough to beat the revenants and things like that-although I have a caveat.  decent interface. Love the sound and music in the game. Okay, i did like the game and I am not really pickey, the object is just to have fun, but for some reason my -'s are longer. I played 80+ hrs and really feel like I did very little. 4 areas. No way is this an explore game. No grand vistas or creepy dungeons. Just little boxy rooms to fight in. Yes you make big decisions that change some things, but most of those are crammed in at the end. Not all, but most. Combat its's self. Even with pause, things happen so fast it's hard to appriciate your guys individual actions and powers. No way is this a loot game either. Very few cool weapons armor or runes to find. evrything I used I found by half way through or later. Buggy game for me. I got the Shale bug. Flemmith never showed up for me to do Morigans quest, even though I got the quest. And while not a bug, the fact that marking a quest as active put markers on your map for some quests but nothing for others was just annoying.  So I do really want to find out what the hell Morrigan wanted that baby for I'm not chomping at the bit for it to come out.
588  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 'Call of Pripyat' on: December 14, 2009, 10:15:02 PM
But is the ending.IE the last 15% of the game good or do we get another crappy ending? I loved the first two games, the creepy underground area of the first one more so, but both endings were disappointing, as has been well noted. Clear Sky after the hospital was pretty useless. I wish they would stop doing that. They do so much a great deal better than any body else.
589  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dragon Age Game Issues Thread on: December 07, 2009, 08:41:42 PM
So we aren't getting a Shale fix any time soon? Also part of the same problem where it decides after a while to stop recognozing wardens keep and gives you the quest again. The silence from EA/Bioware is deafening.
590  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Silent Hunter 5 on: December 05, 2009, 04:58:42 PM
Cool. I guess water is easier to do than fire. The fire looks kinda lame to me. Not that I care, just saying. Can't wait for this as SH3 cannot run on Vista 64 due to the old copy protection.
591  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dragon Age Game Issues Thread on: November 28, 2009, 02:27:59 PM
I got the Shale bug yesterday icon_frown Appparently no fix is available except going back to an earlier save and I just use quick save. Seems like wardens keep has reset as well. I enjoy Shale as a tank-and his quips- so I hope I don't miss too much not being able to talk to him.

Really wish I had a beefier PC as I ended up dialing graphics to low and textures to medium to make this the most playable it could be. The game just flat out doesn't look that great on those settings.



That's okay it doesn't look that great maxed out either. Tongue
Not that I'm not enjoying the game-I am. It just lloks kind of vanilla and washed out to me. And I played Risen right before it which I thought looked fantastic. Different type of game so not fair to compare-it's just the last one I played.

A question about Sten
Spoiler for Hiden:
Do you have to intimidate the reverend mother to get him freed? I tried every other dialog trick I could think of and kept going back to Sten to see if he would give me any info to work with. I did all the side quests and cleared the road in the town hoping the reverend mother would look more faverably on me. Nope. So I held my nose and demanded the key. I got it but felt bad doing it.
Spoiler for Hiden:
 I got a (Persuade)(Lie) option where I told the Reverand Mother that I was going to take him into custody to return in to Quanari.
Spoiler for Hiden:
I'm pretty sure I got him without lying or intimidating as I've yet to intimidate a "good guy". Damned if I can remember the details, it's been about 20 hours of playtime since then.

I did it simply enough (assuming I remembered right):

Spoiler for Hiden:
I basically said that as a Grey Warder (I told her I was one even though there were people in town looking for Warders because we were 'evil') I requested his assistance in the battles ahead. She handed him right over.
That didn't work at all for me.
Spoiler for Hiden:
I told her right off I was Grey warden and she said she couldn't take a chance on helping me since Grey Wardens were on the wanted list.
594  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dragon Age is looking good! on: November 10, 2009, 04:38:12 PM

And most people on this board have way more time to play than I do. It allways cracks me up when I'm still in the opening stages and start reading "Finished!" posts. I'm such a plodder.

I respectfully disagree with the main points of that Eurogamer review. I think DA has a great deal of soul and heart and the game sucked me in pretty fast. Can't say if normal is too hard yet. I have had to repeat some fights, not many but it's early yet. I haven't tried easy. I will say the game is not for people who love exploring in these games as their favorite thing. It's laid out not completely but mostly pretty linear. But I can't see how you can say this game has no soul.

It's not in-game (this was my mistake, too).  You have to go to your Windows sound setup and configure the speakers from there.

Thank you! can't wait to get home and do this tonight. Why the heck isn't the option in game? I don't think it was in game in Risen either.

If this works with Vista 64 that would be way cool. This is one of the the very few games ever that I got completely stuck in and had to give up. Can't even begin to remember where and why that was. Then over the years I tossed my copy. Duh! Since then I've found many cites where people call it one of the best games ever. I would like to get a chance to try again.

I asked this on QT3 and got ignored. Wardens Keep is to be downloaded the day the game is released. Anybody wondering if the servers are going to get clogged up? Or is the DLC already on the disk and we just have to unlock it? I want to fire up this puppy as soon as I get it wioth everything in place. I don't really want to spend 2-3 hrs trying to hook up to a server.
