@Hailst0rm The 1060 is the most common card used by PC gamers followed by a 960 on Steam (nearly all PC gamers use steam). Only 1.4% of all Steam users have a 1080.

Dawn of War 3 to get modding tools, huge balance update

Quickstick4

8 months ago

I often feel like I'm the only person who enjoyed this game. Even when playing online all people do is complain about it. I'm not even good at it. Im around rank 600ish with Orcs, but I find it fun and challenging.
Just hope the Multiplayer doesn't fizzle out too fast. Been a few 20 mins wait for a game before.

Meet the man Gabe Newell called an ass on Reddit

Quickstick4

2 years ago

I remember when his firing happened watching the Dota 2 Major. It really caused allot of division in loyalty. Most people in the Dota 2 community could not believe Newell's lack of professionalism by posting something like that and everyone knew what James presenting style was like and expected it. My impression was that most people in the Dota 2 community stood by James under the caveat that there must have been more to the situation that met the eye. I think Valve know they messed it all up hence why that have just not responded to anything regarding the firing since. I think it was a knee jerk reaction from Newell because the Major was descending into a shit storm and he lashed out when James said some stuff he didn't like.

@Rogueywon Agreed, when the servers emptied - it became a ghost game. Luckily I held out waiting for an announcement - the server consolidation brought the game back to normal and its enjoyable again.

However, I do get tired of the F2P v Subscriber fights that normally crop up over loot these days.

Gas Powered Games suffering layoffs shortly after launching the Wildman Kickstarter

Quickstick4

I know I'm going against the grain, but I Backed this project after hearing this.

Enjoy Gas Powered Games far to much to see them go. Whilst I understand how bad a failed project could be to the eco-system of Kickstarter etc - at least they have come clean that they are "betting the company" on it - so I know the risks.

EDIT2: EG have added the video info into the story - so removed it from my comment

Enhancing Baldur's Gate: the BioWare veterans who dared

Quickstick4

5 years ago

@Glück I really enjoyed the new version of Monkey Island as it let me play it with very little issues on my PC as my original copy was starting to wear out and I lost my backup.

I see your point - but monkey island let you switch back to the original game at anypoint.

I thought that was a fantastic way to update an old game as it lets you see it in a new way - but also lets you play it just as it was back in the day.

Would be nice if they had a similar option in Baldurs Gate - or all remakes/updates for that matter... shame about the art work being lost

Battlefield 3: Aftermath review

Quickstick4

5 years ago

Ive enjoyed the DLC for BF3 so far. Despite the low score, I'm still going to get it as I like how BF3 has turned into how I used to play old games - "Im in this mood so will play this level/map".

Im enjoying the variety its bringing and its definitely expanding onto the original game, which is what DLC should be, not a tag-on should have been part of the main game DLC

Lost Humanity 15: Booth Babes

Quickstick4

6 years ago

Many (guys) say it's harmless. Just some harmless fun. Many (guys) say....
Slightly sexist in its own odd way. I used to be of this belief; that it is only men who want to have booth babes/page 3 girls/glamour models etc.

However - I know two people who are feminists.
One is my cousin who wants to be a serious model(has a degree btw), the other is a staunch feminist who thinks women should do everything men do.

My cousin once pointed out to me that whilst these jobs aren't the ideal modeling jobs that women who want to be models get - they pay whilst waiting for the next job.
My friend has the opinion that "If you've got it - flaunt it" - which I found bizarre coming from her after hearing her talk for an hour on equality and respect.

Im a submariner and spend months without even seeing a woman - and at the end of a deployment I don't come back and view women as objects (granted the first time I came back and saw one I was: OMG!!!) so I really don't know to what extent normal people (i.e. living on the land) are going to find women objectified.

Whilst I acknowledge your trying to defend the need not to objectify women - I think you're missing "their" side of the argument and also - im fairly sure most people know a fair few woman. Their not an alien species that unless we talk to them we just see them as objects.

As an android developer - Very High Piracy of your app only occurs from your own ineptitude. Google offer services(some are broken), and it isn't exactly hard setting up your own, however leaving your .APK files unlocked means anyone can download the app and share it.

N.B. I don't condone piracy

@captain_Carl I wouldn't say that. PC is an open platform and COD managed to come to light as well as the Battlefeild games. The Witcher 2 is another example - and he even used Minecraft as an example

Also iOS is the the most closed platform out there with the approval methods ranging from not only technical standards - but moral standards as well

im not sure about the anger on the comments here. while nobody likes being spied on, what he is proposing is using your purchase history (which is already stored so you can redownload what you bought) and predict how likley your account is to buy game "xyz".

Banks and credit cards use exactly the same method to prevent fraud.

Who Killed Rare?

Brilliant article.

Today's Rare games feel outdated, as if the company has maintained a style that has slipped from fashion and failed to transcend it.
I still love their games, but, mabey as you pointed out, because they have a style that is "out of date" (mabey just different), they take ages to really dig into and find the brilliance of the game.

I only just took the plunge with SLI on my computer, and as the article states, it really obvious that DICE worked hard optimising the code and working with Nvidia - Im am genuinely surprised I can max everything out and still get a constant 60FPS+ whereas Crysis 2 still dips below the 50 FPS mark, and I really dont think crysis 2 looks better or had anything more complex going on.

Call Of Duty Modern Warfare timeline trailer

I suppose they need these videos to remind people what happened in MW2 - as a long term COD fan (no longer after MW2) - the plot holes in MW2 were just so gaping.

Russia launches a war on the US due to a dead CIA officer at a massacrer - when the US can trace the bullets casings via hi-rez CCTV footage to brazil - the russians who have the actual casings can't :-\

Also as a submariner - Capt Price firing the ballistic missiles - urgh.

Im really really hoping MW3 turns the series around again - it needs to go back to COD4 - perfect balance between game/realistic situation.
