You know the routine. Older thread was too large and as such was nuked.

IF YOU ARE LINKING TO IMAGESHACK FILES, DON'T USE THE FULL FILE - USE THE THUMBNAIL FOR FORUMS, PLEASE! FURTHERMORE, PLEASE AVOID THREAD TAGS IN THIS THREAD. THANK YOU.

Post the most recent game you played before visiting this thread now. Not what you're about to play, not what you played two days ago. The most recent game.

Killzone 2

It's very average, considering all the hype. Not surprised though, it's pretty much what I figured it to be from all the footage.

Dragon Age : Origins

Pretty fun so far, feels kinda like Mass Effect set in a high fantasy realm with some Baldurs Gate aspects thrown in. Love the scripting and cutscenes! :-)

I started the Gamecube version of Resident Evil 4 on my Wii and ended up playing for four hours without intending to. I got through the farmhouse siege and stopped. I'm not sure I'd buy the Wii version. Zoomed in, this looks just fine on my TV, and standard wireless controls mean I can play in bed. With IR controls, I'd have to be sitting in a chair or something.

Mirror's Edge for nearly 3 hours. May have overdone it as I got a little motion sickness which made me stop. Neat game though!

I'm glad my brother is the one buying them, because I certainly wouldn't pay for such short "episodes". These could all have been included in the full game. Easily.

Borderlands.

Killing some time (and bandits) before I'm ready to download the Secret Armory of General Knoxx DLC (which got released today). Also, patch 1.3 for the PC has also been released today.

edit;
Holy hell!



Looks like patch 1.3 paves the way for the level cap increase (as I haven't installed the new DLC yet). That sniper costs $9,999,999.

I wonder what the red text means.

Re: What was the last game you played Pt 28?
Just tried the following games on my new PC:


Assassin's Creed - ZOMG, 60FPS at 1680res with DX10, zero lag wohooo!!

Stranglehold - from the creative team that brought us Psi-Ops. If only Chow Yun Fatt had telekinetic abilities like Nick Scryer. Still a fun game to play on a rainy day.

Condemned - lead pipe meet face, face meet lead pipe, **smack**!

Rise & Fall - patched it up to version 1.15, runs at full speed with everything turned on but yeah it's a 2005 game, still, I kinda dig those hybrid RTS games.

Tomb Raider Legend - Next Gen mode looks impressive, wish I could change the aspect ratio to display borders on my 16:10 monitor.

Gears of War - the only game that locked up, thankfully I was able to get back to the desktop(I love you Windows 7) and manage to run it again. The usual DX10, full settings. Yeah.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance - super shiny all over.

Gun - the ugliest among all of them, has framerate issues.

Dead Space - I'm kinda obsessed on how the game engine treats the texture for fabric. Issacs pants/suit bends like real clothing. Super amazing. But at the same time I understand why PC gamers hate this game. The mouse lag with Vsync is horrible. And the fact that EA refuses to admit this is even more frustrating. Sad to see the sequel is console exclusive.

You can look up the meanings of the red text here.

It seems like the new patch makes all of the "for sale" weapons level 50+ so I'll have to get the DLC eventually. They also reset your XP if it was over the required XP to hit level 50.

UT3 - Testing out DM-ArcticBlitz, certainly a far better map than Galacticus Prime was:



...and yes, it is a vehicular deathmatch (Demo Derby). Thought that would've been a trend setter for better UT3 combat.
Since it's an outdoor map, I obviously used the additive method of mapping here.

Moar Killzone 2. This game is just what you'd expect from a piss-poor shooter garnished with high production values.

Did the creators actually think they were being clever with these boss battles?? Take the atac battle on the roof for example. The whole situation is retarded to begin with, you're sitting ducks inside the building so the player is shoved to the ROOF ALONE to take on the incredibly uninteresting, generic hunk of flying metal and missiles.

And the mechanic... "Try shooting the coils on the side!" Jesus f'in C!

I need to start thinking before buying. This would be the second game in a row for PS3 that I bought which I just can't bear to finish. Good thing it was dirt cheap.

AVP

Game sure crashes alot at the research labs, and i am forced to play on a tiny screen resolution to make it playable... Else a fatal graphical glitch will kick in where framerate drops like -8 billion FPS and every surface of the map disappears... Yeah, fun...

Playing on a lower resolution is no more fun either, it's lagging, because, get this, it only runs perfectly on HD resolutions for me . . . Otherwise it runs perfectly fluent, but just stops... and then runs fine, and then stops, and repeat... It's not the typical "every 10 seconds" stop-thing either, it happens randomly, mostly when i enter a new area, or when i ... turn... But never when i stand stil, no matter how busy the screen is at whatever i look at... runs fine, but when i move and look somewhere els,e that's where it does it again... I breaks the flow and mood completely... but is necessary for me to actually beat this map... And even then, it causes a tremendous amount of crashes...

I sure love the game, but it ******* hates my PC, or me...

I think it might be a memory issue... or ******* Windows ******* vista...

Borderlands - The secret armory of General Knoxx.

Been busy robbing/farming the armory using the known glitch that lets you rob the place without any time-limit (you can drop through the floor right before the hallway to a computerroom inside the fort like this). This add-on has been absolutely awesome in all ways.

Finished Gothic II

Finished with my character at Level 41, 133 Strength/105 Dexterity, had the 2nd best armor in the game, had the best one-handed sword and the best bow in the game...I pretty much walked all over the last boss. 16 minutes shy of how long I predicted the campaign would take me (60 hours).

Amazing, amazing RPG. Loved the challenge, loved the open-ness, and the story was pretty good.

Using the STALKER Complete 2009 mod, makes the game much more fun to play and much more atmospheric. The game world feels and looks better, and the weapons actually feel like... guns.
Not nerf air rifles that don't have any f**king air pressure in them.

Re: What was the last game you played Pt 28?
I see, that's kinda of disappointing... However, i figured that putting texture quality to medium instead of very high makes it run perfectly again, without having to change resolutions... Still weird how lower resolutions make it run worse than a high one though ...

I'll also have to change texture quality back to very high everytime i play MP, sine in there it can look good AND run perfectly fine... Bothersome, but it works at least... Hope they release more DLC's with some species specific missions, rather than giving all of them the same damn map where the story crosses over... it's cool to some extend, but not if every mission, and every species, shares the same areas... this kind of recycling feels weak if it's being overused like this... I mean, it's one thing to say "hah, i recognize this place, i was here as marine"... But it's tiresome going through the same area with a diferent mission and different exit, but still, the same goddamn location...

beat the game before reading on with my ranting
Spoiler:


Still love the game though, the levels are repetitive, but i can't look away from the working game mechanics and controls, i think they nailed how to control an Alien and Predator just fine...


Anyways, i beat AVP, cool game

Yeah... god forbid a bug or problem pop up after release. These things happen, as PC gamers we should be used to it.

And a patch is set to be released sometime today to address this issue.

Thank you for the suggestion. Saw this when installing -

Quote:
Before you get started, remember that the recommended steps are:

1. Install S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl.
2. Patch S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl to v1.0005.
3. Launch & exit the game at least once.
4. Uninstall any previous versions of Stalker Complete 2009
if you have them installed.
5. Run Stalker Complete 2009 v1.4.3 Setup.exe.
6. Start a new game.
7. Finish the game.
8. Uninstall Stalker Complete 2009.
9. Uninstall S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl.
10. Get some fresh air and sunlight.
