So, AusGAF. DNF is only a fiver at GMG. I know I really shouldn't, but will I not even get five bucks worth of fun (or at least, derogatory commentating a la shit movies) out of it? It should be noted that I LOVE making smart-arse remarks during bad movies.

Also, Valve's working on their own PC thing? WHY THE FUCK AREN'T THEY MAKING MY PC GAMING MORE COMFY COUCHIER?

I'm sure you will get 5 minutes worth of fun out of it :p It was pretty bad though. It played like an old xbox game, with random invisible walls and npcs that stand around not moving, but it had its hilarious moments. Hilariously bad, but moments none the less. At least $5 worth of moments for sure. I did only get through the first hour though, and gave up after the second boss.

$110 at LOGS on both consoles but not sure if that is a good deal or not.

DNF is shit. Not even so bad it is funny shit. After playing it enough to realise Gearbox didn't polish it up at all, mainly just tying it all together, I had hoped that it would be enjoyable to see sections that were influenced by certain titles at the time, so you could put a date stamp on when that section was designed but it was just a yucky mess. It is everything that could be wrong about shooters. Might be worth 5 bucks to watch the trainwreck, would be just as well spent on some laxatives and you will have just as good a time with the added benefit of being fresh as a daisy.

Also I would expect the Valve PC would be focused on comfy couch gaming since it talks about a controller so expect teh BIG SCREEN MODE to launch alongside it.

Bulletstorm. I believe it took longer to download than it did to finish the game, A total of 5 hours according to steam.

Aside from the early crashes, What a fucking mental game. Just a roller coaster of constant dick dumb shit. Since it ran at 60fps constantly it was just fast paced as an erect dick on wheels going down a cock mouth hill.

The ending was fucking dickish though, What a waste.

Hm. Worth contemplating, even if it's just to see how far they've come in 50 years. It's a shame there's no Double Fine Kickstarter-style doco that comes with it. That'd be worth the RRP alone.

CONFLICTED! I might drop it on there, but there's always a certain part of my money that I personally feel is somewhat because the developers deserve it. I don't know if I can grant DNF that luxury.

Maybe I'll get pissed tonight and then decide.

See, that's exactly what I WASN'T hoping for. It means we actually have to wait for some kind of console (I haven't read the specifics) to get it. That's shit. It also means it's not being provided because Valve are just being awesome, there's a commercial agenda behind it (if we see it at all... there hasn't been ANY mention of it from them since it was first announced. Not even an "it's on the backburner" statement).

Also, that thread about it is what's wrong with GAF. Every second fucking post is some variation on an "oh shit" gif. It pisses me off.



Okay, think I need to play some more Space Marine.

Don't get DNF. There are better things to spend your $5 on. Like a knife you could jab into your thigh. Or a bottle of drain cleaner you could drink. Both would be more enjoyable.

It's so bad it's just Bad. With a capital B. Not good bad. Just terrible bad.

I'm a 50pper too. Faster loading speed, less scrolling, better experience. Keeps the bandwidth down on successive reloads too, so I'm helping out the rest of the community unlike you selfish 100ppers.

Duke Nukem Forever is the worst game I've played in the last few years. Outside of a few choice lines it's not funny, the level design is all over the place, it's extremely repetitive, and suffers from the worst case of monotonous corridor running and gimmicky bullshit I've seen in some time. It's a poor Duke game, a poor run-and-gun shooter, and a poor game as a whole. There's like, not a single sensible or polished element of design, just one awful decision and idea after the other, wrapped in a game that looks and feels like you're playing a beta build out of a map editor.

Don't touch it. Save yourself the misery. Play Bullestorm, Serious Sam 3 or The Darkness II instead if you want running and gunning.

Cheers, will leave it then. I have Bulletstorm (relatively) unplayed for PC just sitting there and I've just fired up Space Marine, which more than sufficiently satiates my bloodlust.

EVERY game these days have retailer DLC, Prototype 2 is pissing me off with exclusive powers so they expect me to hop in a planeboat and circumnavifuckinggate the globe in order to play the complete game. Arseholes. EA are no better, Activision are copying their Limited Edition being the First Print Edition and it just confuses shit. Just so you know, buy the CE for Mass Effect 3 or you will end up pissed off beyond all hell once your media blackout drops. I know, spoilers, but I think it is best you know that the CE is the one to buy rather than you getting burned. Not that the precedent hadn't already been set with Dragon Age 2 and (to a lesser extent due to it being another First Print 10$ Project idea) Mass Effect 2.

Okay, think I need to play some more Space Marine.

From day one Steam has been a part of a very big commercial agenda. The whole idea was, "fuck these publishers/distributors who make silos of cash out of selling their products (and licencing to internet cafes), lets get 100% of the money from the consumer." Plus they charge to sell games on the service. They aren't a non-profit charity. They need to bankroll operations such as the Doug Church tenure and the Robin Walker hat emporium.
More to the point we have no idea on the operations of the Steam team, or even how many people at one time work on it. One of the reasons that tf2 took 9 years to surface was because Walker was lead on Episode 1 and Cook was working on Steam features. If it was simple, they would have already released it (or at least a beta of it). Don't forget the mobile app they brought out recently, I would expect most of their dedicated staff to be ramping that up to the next release build.
The Steam PC seems like a logical thing that they would have thought about as developers WAY WAY back in their early days, it is one of the main benefits of consoles after all. Once you know your target rig you can make your game more efficient to run on that hardware, etc.



Also Space Marine is great bludgeoning fun, at the last few chapters now, getting a bit bored with it.

It really did feel like a fan game. Kind of like that Garshasp game, but at least that seemed to have more effort put into its development. It was like playing a game you bought at a dodgy market stall in Indonesia developed by the merchants in their spare time between selling cam quality dvd's.
