I was implying I need to send it back and get a replacement so I can run TW2! My PSU currently can no longer support my rig under load frown.gif

R.I.P.

What's wrong with that?

Glass half full/half empty perspectives. I believe in rewarding the good rather than just punishing the bad.

Seriously, CDPR made one of the best looking PC games and Valve with all their money... still use Source?

Exactly

CD Projekt is a small company that made a great game with only 6 million and its one of the best looking games of all time, which valve is still using a 2004 engine that is clearly dated. Valve really is content with steam revenue, I mean just think about it from their perspective, whats the point of investing resources in a new game engine or creating a blockbuster hit like HL3 when it probably wouldn't even generate that much money and only really appeal to the PC community (due to HL series being predominately a PC series and this gen of consoles almost at a close in regards to the engine). How much would it cost to create a new engine? and how much would valve even make from a game like Hl3? Probably nowhere close to the steam revenue of a billion dollars last year.

Because in 2003, they explained, they would be using Source for at least a decade, as it's modular.

Source games released just last year, and some this year, look amazing, like Dear Esther.

The Engine looks incredible, it allows for a wide range of game types, and runs very well. There's no reason for them to not use Source. It works, it sells, people love it. It looks as good as games released this year.

I see no reason to not use Source, as it looks incredible and is very well optimized.

Just to show again.

Gameplay wise, the Dota community really wanted to keep the same core Dota gameplay elements. It is challenging to play and favors veterans of the game. Dota players want Dota2 to be Dota.

CS:GO, they added more maps, tweaked classic maps, more guns, more grenades, more game play modes, tweaked the hitboxes to be smaller, rebalanced guns, and added more graphics. The 1.6 community actually wants the graphics to be simpler looking maps with less detail and effects. Max price for PSN downloadable games is $20 if I recall correctly, so CS:GO will not cost that much either.

Polar opposite of EA. Full respect to the Witcher team.

Yeah I am very satisfied and pleased with CD Projekt. I have disc and Steam version of Witcher 1. Also I have disc and Steam version of Witcher 2.

Should there really be a reason why?

God I hate video game trailers. That Dear Esther trailer is garbage. It tells me NOTHING about the game and looks like scenery from a [prettier] Morrowind.


What's that game coming out that has the father and daughter fighting for their lives against some horrendous monster? Either way, everyone was freaking out about it and the trailer showed absolutely NOTHING. No gameplay, just some stupid voice over and two people running. Geoff Keighley was quoted as saying "it will blow your mind!" And it was just a terrible trailer that didn't say a single word about what the game was. Ugh.


On topic: I'll get to The Witcher 2 soon. I'm glad CDPR went forth and put the effort into their product. They did it because as artists, they feel their vision is now complete. They must see the medium as an art form if, as creators, are unsatisfied with the initial release of their vision. Good on them.

Eh.

You must be stupid. Dear Esther trailer very much shows what about the game is about.

The combat for the first boss fight is really rough, not gonna lie. But otherwise it's a fantastic game. I'm on my second playthrough and really excited because they finally fixed the SLI issue, and since I upgraded to SLI 480s I can finally do ubersampling at 35 fps! Game still looks great on high though. I would definitely recommend the no weight for items mod though.
