Yeah it was kind of hard for him to resist.  Getting to run the Vampire site on Gamespy, having costs paid, etc.

Even though it is different I hope the new forums will become popular again.  So go post your questions about the patch etc.!

While I don't agree with Lord Ebonstone, he didn't attack anyone personally he just stated his opinion which we all can do.  Lets not start personal attacks, etc.  

Thanks

I however will be buying it ASAP.

When I love the gameplay I love hearing that the game is more of the same!

One thing to keep in mind is that despite saying Valve is dumb this is really a thread about how their games are so good I want to play more of them. smile

So if they offer what is essentially an upgrade from Bronze to Silver does that mean they will/should offer an upgrade from Silver to Platinum?

Where does it end?  Soon we will have dogs and cats living together.


True we could be starting down the highway to hell....hey maybe they could offer music too....smile

Well the first review I have seen isn't too encouraging.  While they liked the game they find the card based - but yet real time combat to be a bit annoying.  I am not a fan of frantic real time combat.  

It will be interesting to see what the other reviews say.

I bet folks are right and they will eventually offer it.  It is just to easy not to.  It already exists as a download so all it would require is taking people's money and then enabling some permissions to download the files and play them.  


For Valve it requires practically no investment.  The work is already done for the most part.  They have the games, they have the delivery method, they have the payment process, etc.  It is pure profit.

I had a very constructive point which also happens to be the obvious answer:  Valve doesn't give a crap about your $10 right now.



Which is stupid.  If Valve's business model is really "we don't care about making money."  then they are stupid.   If there model is "we don't give a crap about customers" they are equally stupid.

Well, I hate to repond to my own thread but I noticed in the ads Sunday that is will be $24.99 at Best Buy and they list it as coming on Thursday.
2854  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Any sales numbers on HL2? on: December 06, 2004, 02:51:20 PM
I saw last week the proud announcements by Blizzard about how well Wow had sold and I realized I hadn't seen squat about HL2.

Since it has a non-standard distribution it probably would be hard to get totally accurate numbers but I am suprised that no press releases have been issued listing any.

Anyone seen anything?

One thing about Gothic and Gothic 2. It would be a great game, if the control system was even halfway decent. It has HORRIBLE controls. I have no idea what they were thinking making that horrible control system.

Gothic is a good game, but be prepared for a monumental struggle with the control system. If you can get past the first few frustrating hours though, you will find a good game lurking below.


I always wondered what the developers were thinking.  I sometimes think they must simply - think in a fundementally different way than I do.  The control scheme made so little sense in a world of mice.

I think they're doing just fine in that aspect, whether you like the specifics of it or not.

Please whine more.  Especially about Steam/Valve.  That's not old or anything.  Not at all.


But going into threads just to bitch abou thte topic of the thread - that is really fresh and exciting.  smile


Come on,  you come into a thread to rip on the whole topic rather than provide any constructive points and you think I am being boring and old?

Valve could continue to make money off me.  I bought HL2 retail and I would buy more if they let me, thus making them more money.  To stop that is bad business
2859  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Valve/Steam is stupid on: December 05, 2004, 08:17:24 PM
I just finished HL2 which I bought retail and I was feeling a bug to play HL 1 and maybe Opposing Forces so I log into Steam to check out prices.

Valve is nice enough to offer that I can buy those games for only $89, or $50 in the bundles with HL2!  Isn't that great?

No, it isn't (in case you wondered)  It is stupid.  They could have may $10 from me by letting me buy those games but no they are only sold in the bundle.

Since Steam is always running, etc. every game these sell is profit.  They could have made a profit on me but they have decided that would be silly.  They actually would prefer that they never got any more money from me.  

So, so dumb.

Well what is the word on this?  It comes out this week and I have seen a few previews but I am still leery of the gameplay.  A action game, but with cards?  That strikes me as odd to say the least.  I am wondering how it will turn out.

Anyone planning on rushing out to get it so they can post impressions?
2861  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Kingdom Hearts 2 details and trailer on: December 03, 2004, 02:43:25 PM
You are certainly entitled to your opinion but I will always hate the game.

For me the camera made it impossible to enjoy.  You couldn't rotate it completely with the shoulder buttons - it wouldn't go pass solid objects very well.

And even that might have been ok if it had not almost worked against the player.  Best example, early in the game when you go to Tarzan's world.  As you are walking along the beams in the first building the camera perspective switches - without you touching anything! So you are pushing up to walk forward and suddenly pushing up makes you walk off the beam because you had to push left to keep walking forward! That is just stupid.  I didn't change the camera angle, I want to keep moving the same way but suddenly because the game decided to move the camera!  


I am happy you liked it but for me the game had so many aspects which seemed to actually work against the player that I couldn't stand it.

I have played about 45 minutes so my impressions are not real deep.

However so far it is wonderful!  I am loving the retro feel but with all the modern touches.  Things like save anywhere and auto equip the best equipment really improve the game play and make the game enjoyable.

I haven't gotten it yet but it is in the Target ad this week for $24.88
Which is a great price for a new GBA game.

They won't have it until Wednesday but it is worth waiting I think.
2866  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What's your GOAT of the Year so far? (PC edition) on: November 30, 2004, 08:50:43 PM
I have to say Doom3, for the second reason you listed.  I had very high hopes for it and they were dashed.

I really missed one thing which not many people mention - wide open areas.    In the original Dooms I could strafe around and around the enemy but Doom 3 was almost all tight corridors where you couldn't really move around.

I could deal with the dark, with the monsters jumping out of closets - I just want open areas!

What could they sue Valve for?

"Hi, I stole a copy of HL2 and I'd like to sue Valve for blocking my steam account."

Doesn't matter if they bought a legit copy of the game later on. If that was true then they could make a new account with a legit copy of HL2.



I don't think it would work but they could sue for losing all the other games they had purchased.


Imagine that you copied a DVD and 20th Century Fox came to your house and took all your DVDs.  Well you only stole one, so they really don't have much claim to take the rest.


As I said, I doubt it would work but I would bet that is what they would sue over.

I really loved the first game. Until I got to the Omega Pirate Boss where I had to abandon the game in frustration.  Word that Prime 2 is even harder makes it very unlikely I will play it.


Well I at least made it to the last boss! smile

I wonder how far I will get in MP2

Well more impressions anyone?  I am interested in this game but many of the reviews have pointed out that it is hard - much harder than the first game.  I have to admit I don't really care for really hard games, I simply have to much to play to get hung up on one fustrating game.

Anyway, how are people finding the difficulty?

I think I may play through again next as a Nosferatu.  I was never too interested in them, but after seeing the game I think it'd be an interesting switch to have to sneak around the whole game.


I thought about this for awhile but ultimately I couldn't do it -becuse (1) of the loads for going in the sewers.  As a Nosferatu you would constantly be seeing the silly load screens.  (2) sneaking is so slow.  You know you want to walk down the street, but it takes twice as long as it would a normal chracter because sneaking is slowwwww.
2874  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What Vampire really needs! (besides patched) on: November 22, 2004, 03:24:29 PM
More stuff!!!! I have ransacked tons of hotel rooms, offices, etc. and found squat.

I have the wopping choice of two outfits, 3 different melee weapons (4 if you cound a severed arm), and 3 fire arms!  

This is a freaking RPG!!   There should be more crap than I could ever use.

Different outfits - even if they have the same AC - allow me to customize my character.  At the end of Vampire I expect that the Venture women will look exactly the same because that is the best armor.  They will all use the same weapon, etc.  

The story is good, the voice acting is very good, the world is cool but without more stuff it feels dull.  There is little incentive to dig around in rooms without people or go exploring.

I played it for a few minutes at Best Buy.  Wow I hated it.  I can't imagine a more useless handheld.  

While playing Metroid Prime the lower screen was really, really helpful by showing me a map...wow I couldn't possibly get that without two screens!

It serves no purpose.

As a senior store manager I know how important it is to make the customer happy. If I was you I would take the game along with the the proof of purchase and raise hell in the store demanding your money back or a new game.
Ask for the DM # along with the corprate number.
most managers know when it goes that far the customer will come out on top and they the manager will be looked down upon.
you may receive up $25 in gift card or the above a new copy of the game and a free strat guide.
Dont take this sitting down.


And there is the best advice.  Take it to the DM, just know that you'll be dealing with some corporate shill who hasn't a damned clue about your outrage and will use EB's corporate RMS training to try to calm you down.  Be clear with what you want up front and don't take no for an answer.


Yeah that is the best plan.  


Good luck.
