Game Thread XL: Fat #$%# Edition

Discussion in 'General Chat' started by Big Rob, Dec 25, 2010.

  1. I wouldn't buy it while it's full price. Supposedly it's above average for a cross platform FPS but quite poor compared to the previous games.
     
  2. hey pc #%$s you guys should steal it
    that way in 2 years all games will be for xbox 720 and ps4 and you will cry
     
  3.  
  4. Apparently and umm I'm just going by what some developers and publisher had to say.

    Some big retailers in the USA does not like it when a retail version is more then a DD version. Thats why DD games are now hitting the same price as retail versions.

    Also you can blame Activision for this.

    Microsoft have a short attention span, they seem to have lost interest in xbox 360 customers and want to shift towards casual social games.

    I don't know how likely they are to focus much on a new console when they are obsessed with getting something to compete with iOS and android.

  7. Just played crysis 2, it's absolute shit, graphics are average even for a multiplatform game and it plays like a buggy sci-fi call of duty imitation.

    The engine is clearly capable of more but all the textures and models are terrible, they haven't really got AA functioning much at all as well.
     
  8. Achieved with cryengine 3!
     
  9. lol at first i thought that was a photograph of a real tree!
     
  10. oh hey, guess what?
    it currently easier to rip off games for my PS3 than it is for my pc! shock horror!

    make good games and sell them at a reasonable price and people will buy it.
    make shit games and rip people off, they will steal it
     
  11. Not if you want to keep all the other service.

    And I'm sorry to say this but most PS3 exclusives are not shit. I would gladly handover 60 dollars for God of War 3 before I spend a dime on something like Magicka.

    They've also shifted focus on Games for Windows Live.

    This is probably because they're pushing the Windows Mobil 7 phones hard right now as part of the "Xbox Live Lifestyle" bullshit.
     
  13. wah? the ps3 jail break, if you jailbreak to the latest firmware version you can still use all PSN functions.

    Whats this got to do with PS3 exclusives
     
  14. 3.60 FW blocks you out of most PSN service. Don't know if you can access Netflix.

    And yes I've been keeping up to date with what everyone is doing and claiming how they have cracked 3.6 but I haven't seen one released to the public yet.
     
  15. how are people realizing its shit only after they paly it? you can tell from the commercial gameplay footage alone
     
  16. Those #$%#ing cocksuckers, now consoles have ruined Crysis too.
    I was already really sceptic because the demo looked like shit too.


    Godverdomde eikelrijders, ruined the game I was looking forward to the most.
     
  17. That Flashbulb album is ace
     
  18. Steam made a billion dollars in revenue last year

  20. holy shit @ L4D considering you can get it for 15 bucks, 20 at its most expensive. so thats atleast 1.8 million sales.

    id like to note that steam (estimated) sales do not reflect what people are actually playing:

    Current Players-Peak Today-Game
    27,738 76,108 Counter-Strike
    23,083 69,152 Counter-Strike: Source
    13,147 35,852 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 - Multiplayer
    12,034 31,255 Call of Duty Black Ops - Multiplayer
    10,567 26,547 Total War SHOGUN 2
    10,146 18,951 Team Fortress 2
    8,566 24,188 Football Manager 2011
    7,749 15,854 Sid Meier's Civilization V
    5,673 13,258 Left 4 Dead 2
    3,593 8,632 RIFT
     
  21. surprised at civ 5, considering it's a total shit game.
     
  22. its not bullshit
    its my life
     
  23. Get a clue Crysis sucked.
     
  24. Crysis was awesome.

    - The atmosphere
    - The graphics
    - The AI
    - The wide open areas

    The only thing that sucked where the aliens.
     
  25. havent played crysis, but that sounds a lot like farcry to me. the aliens ruined that game.
