Breakfast Topic: Ignoring achievements for roleplay reasons {WoW}

Apr 3rd 2009 5:06PM I love how the achievement says P.I.T.A. (aka Pain in the A$$)
Really makes you want to get that achievement... >.>
Damn hippies.

Breakfast Topic: Are server outages driving you to other games? {WoW}

Oct 21st 2008 12:56AM I just switch to beta when my server goes down. If beta is down, I go play my Xbox 360, or go do something productive.

Rumor: Next Xbox to improve 360 games {Joystiq Xbox}

Oct 15th 2008 4:13PM In regards to them improving looks:

Sure, they can increase frame rates, and possibly draw distance.

Problem is, besides using more AA and AF on textures, they're not going to look much better. It's not like you can magically go back in the game and uprez the textures. Likewise, a lot of draw distance is coded into games, so how they expect to increase draw distance for games like that is beyond me.

All that's really going to happen is the games will be played with a better graphics processor, meaning increased frame rates, possibly further draw distance, a higher amount of Anti-Aliasing, and a higher amount of Anisotropic Filtering. Big leap there... woah.

And considering most games are really only rendered out at 720p, and up-rez'd to 1080p already, because of frame rate issues, whoopdee doo.

EA: Spore's 'particularly aggressive' DRM unnoticed by most {Joystiq}

Oct 15th 2008 4:01PM I guess I was just hoping his comment, in reality, wasn't broad, and that he knows of the lack of quality SPORE was put out in, and that he was referring more to that specific case.

Maybe I'm trying to be naive and refute it all to the back of my mind so I don't have to think about my games becoming computer controlling androids.

I just think that it's at least a possibility he knows the game sucked, but that it sold a ton of copies, and that no one will probably play it for very long, so he's making comments like these.

Could be wrong... I know Far Cry 2 is coming out with the same DRM, so that kind of rips my case apart. Not that I'm interested in that game anyways, since Crytek isn't developing it, and EA is, which means it's tainted crap now.

I wonder if Dead Space for PC will have the same DRM...

EA: Spore's 'particularly aggressive' DRM unnoticed by most {Joystiq}

Oct 15th 2008 3:54PM I agree with you, but does that make it wrong to then download the game ISO or cracked/DRM stripped version of the game AFTER you've bought it?

I'd like to think not. A lot of games I own, I use CD cracks on so I don't have to search through my insane amount of games and their 4 cd's per game to put in my computer. Just makes playing so much easier.

EA: Spore's 'particularly aggressive' DRM unnoticed by most {Joystiq}

Oct 15th 2008 3:50PM I hate to be bursting anyone's bubble here, as I hate DRM as much as the next guy, but I seriously doubt anyone's going to be playing SPORE still 2 years from now, or even ONE year from now. Maybe if they'd made a decent game, like we all thought it would be, the average consumer would eventually flip out, but I seriously doubt most consumers are:
1. Going have to re-install anytime soon.
2. Really want to still play SPORE

So, I think they're smarter than we give them credit for. They tried out aggressive DRM on a game that sucks, and no one will care about in 2 years. Call me crazy, but EA just doesn't care.

Assassin's Creed's Altair learns to swim for future project {Joystiq}

Oct 13th 2008 3:29PM I really enjoyed the story. The game play was repetitive after a while, but the story is what pushed me through.

If the story continues to be as good or better, with hopefully improved game play, I'll be a happy camper.

Whatever the case is, I'm sure I'll end up getting it anyways.

Fanswag: Dead Space Launch Week Giveaway [update] {Joystiq Xbox}

Oct 13th 2008 3:10PM I'm excited EA finally made a decent FPS game, or a decent game at all in a while, for that matter. I'm impressed that they have seemingly pulled it off with this game. When first announced (and even before, when I heard rumors of it) I expected another epic failure, but EA seems to have surprised everyone, and I'm looking forward to trying this game out.

Tips for new Death Knights from a fellow tank, part 2 {WoW}

Oct 8th 2008 3:49AM Unfortunately, I think you'll find most players DON'T understand or know what's going on other than spamming spells and stabby stab, whack-a-mole.

I think the unfortunate truth is that, unless you've played a healer or a tank for any significant amount of time, you have a very shallow sense of how things work and should work tanking.
