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.
562  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Ubisoft unveils new copy protection system: on: March 02, 2010, 03:50:10 PM
DRM or no, I'm not up for $60 a game.
563  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Project Offset new video on: February 19, 2010, 11:17:57 PM
Okay, since I'm a forum member they sent me a link. Very cool. Still, no hint of any game play or release date.
564  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.
565  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.
566  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.
567  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.

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.

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.
571  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.
572  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.
573  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.
576  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dragon Age is looking good! on: November 10, 2009, 04:38:12 PM
Thanks for the replies. Sounds at least like there was nothing obvious was missed. Oh well, what's done is done. I'm sure it's not the last time I will say that in this game.

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.
578  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dragon Age is looking good! on: November 09, 2009, 11:29:09 PM
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.

Where do you guys see the 5.1 sound option? Yes I have looked under audio. I don't see it anywhere.
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.
582  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dragon Age is looking good! on: October 27, 2009, 08:25:21 PM
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.
583  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dragon Age: Where to buy? on: October 23, 2009, 09:03:48 PM
I wonder if steam will let people preload this. I already have a CE preorder at gamestop so it doesn't matter to me but I wonder how long it will take to pull this down from steam. I purchased Risen that way and they started the download about 6-7 hrs late with no explination. I would worry about servers getting flooded as well because DA is sure to be a lot more popular than Risen. Today Steam started preloads for Borderlands so maybe they will.
584  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dragon Age is looking good! on: October 21, 2009, 03:39:08 PM
I have heard on QT3 that the Eurogamer review has some spoilers in it. Just a friendly warning.

So, anyone got a short synopsis of what the point is in this game?  Are we eventually supposed to save the land from some Dragon or evil whoever?  Or is it more just a character-building rpg where the crux is to roam around and adventure here and there and build a badass character? 

Just hoping it is not another World of Warcraft type of thing.  Oh, and I did not play through Baldur's Gate. Got bored about an hour in.

The videos I watched had some nice character interaction with npc's, but that is about all I could tell from them.

There is a Dark swarm overtaking the land and you join up with the grey wardens and try to defeat it. I think that is pretty much all that is known so far. Which is great because I don't want to know spoilers anyway. Did you just play BG1 or was it BG2 that bored you. BG1 was kinda vanilla but Bioware rpg's are pretty similar in play and if you didn't care for those you probably wouldn't be crazy about Dragon Age either.
586  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Risen from Pirhana Bytes on: October 13, 2009, 05:54:58 PM
Cool. I have to stop reading stuff. Still in Chapter one. I did all of the swamp qusts without reading any tips. I just got stuck on a couple small things in Harbor town and in trying to get unstuck discovered I had more to do with Patty. Then I got worried I had missed something.
Really enjoying the game. it's exciting trying to explore in a driving thunderstorm when sudden death may lurk around any corner. I'm enjoying all the quests as well. Can't believe some people have finished the game already.
587  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Risen from Pirhana Bytes on: October 13, 2009, 05:23:55 PM
A quest question.
Spoiler for Hiden:
I have gotten Patty outside harbor town and I know there is a further quest line with her but I haven't triggered been able to trigger it yet. Is it chapter dependent? I heard you get it from the Don's area. Is it from Finnegan? I taalked to him but nothing triggered.
588  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Risen from Pirhana Bytes on: October 07, 2009, 04:25:28 PM
Risen is 4th on the Steam best sellers list and first on Direct to Drive. I really hope it does great because I want PB to keep making games.

I ran into a graphic glitch last night where that guy had no head.  it was bizarre, but when I alt tabbed to get FRAPS up and running it came back.
[/quote]

I had this glitch on a character in Harbor town. Just eyeballs and teeth. I was wondering for a second if he was a specter or something but figured it was a glitch pretty fast. It returned to normal on my next reload.

This game is kicking my ass in the begining. The quests are anything but easy and I'm to weak and unskilled to use brute force. Good old PB. This is just the way I like it. I will be glad to get the hell out of Harbor town though.

Knightshade those are very promising words. Even if I wind up not thinking it's the best RPG ever It still sounds like a way better than average game. It is interesting that people who have just seen the trailors and promo stuff are doubtful but anyone who has gotten to play it for a decent amout of time come away quite impressed.
591  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Silent Hunter 3 on: October 02, 2009, 09:30:11 PM
Booner fwiw I heard SH4 took a large astep back in the series. They managed to lose a ton of atmosphere and dumbed some stuff down. Kronovan, I played the GWX full package on a core 2 duo 3gig and a 800gt and 2 gig ram and it ran smooth. Not that demanding in terms of todays hardware.
592  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Silent Hunter 3 on: October 02, 2009, 06:55:10 PM
This is a great game. Do yourself a favor and get the GWX mod package as well as sub commander. Really enhances the fun. I'm stuck because I have the origonal SH3 with Starforce and it plain will not work with Vista64. So I am waiting paitently for SHV in March.

A couple of things: The 360 port was done by an outside company and they did a pretty poor job that the PB crew is very unhappy about. The Eurogamer review has been dissected pretty well on QT3 and has so many proven inaccuracies that it seems pretty well useless.

Yup, they do have stores here in Illinois. I orderd from steam. 5 bucks off and no tax, plus I should get it on day one, unless a million people are doing the same thing. Tongue
596  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Risen from Pirhana Bytes on: September 26, 2009, 03:38:38 PM
Yes Gamestop preorder for 39.99 is a sale price. Of course then you don't get to play it on release day because it only ships on the second. I think for ten bucks off I can wait a few days to play it. The reviews make it sound just like Gothic 1 and 2, and none of them have mentioned bugs. I am so all over this.

So gamestop charges tax for internet orders now? icon_cry Between that and any shipping increase over the minimum means I'm not saving much even with the sale. I think I will go B&M and be washing up on that island Friday night.

DX10 vs DX11 comparisons.  maybe it's too early in the morning, but the only difference I can see is the DX11 ones look a bit brighter.
I could barely see any difference in 9 vs 10 except for some of the large explosions, and I can't see a difference here at all. Certainly no need to get a new card.

Maybe they are redoing the ending icon_confused. Naw, because the Russian version seems to be not delayed. I would be bummed about this but I have Risen and Dragon Age coming out so I am game set for a while.

Looks like they really improved the graphics, wasn't expecting that.

that they seem to be really good at.  Clear Sky was much better graphicswise than the first game, and they bring it up a notch again this time.

of course the real question is, while making it prettier, did they do a better job optimizing it this time....

(oh, and make the ending level(s) not suck.  they have yet to stick the landing on this IMO)
I guess I need to pick up a video card faster than my 8800gt to get good rates in Clear Skies. It seems to chug something fierce. I can only fear what this new one will do.
 

What rez are you trying to play at? I played CS on my 8800gt cranked with no issues. Can't remember for sure what I played at but I think it was 1880x1050. If not it was 1280. I hope they haven't boosted it to much. Optimisers these guys are not.
