    Wolfenstein: The New Order's Huge Download Frightens Pirates, Just Not Enough

    What this man says is correct. There are a few good details to know first. RAGE was the first game to use Megatexture technology. What Leviano said about very huge textures is correct. Large surfaces in the game are one giant "megatexture" that is up to 256k * 256k (I think, or it could be...

    Diablo III's Expansion May Only Cost $30

    I'll wait on it. I'm in no rush to get back into Diablo III.

    Creative Lego Creations

    I honestly think this title is somewhat misleading. When I see the word creative, I tend to think original content and not a LEGO version of pop culture characters/ships/etc... I do like these models, though. They're pretty well done and some of the methods used to create models within the...

    Escape to the Movies: White House Down

    It's a work of fiction, it takes the current political climate and repaints it black and white (figuratively speaking). Frankly, there's nothing wrong with that at all.

    Jimquisition: Why PC Gaming Gets Away With It

    Going by what you said and LaochFire's post, I will definitely agree with you that Steam's pricing in different currencies is pretty shitty. For anyone living in North America, Steam is a fantastic way to get your games. The prices are almost never higher than what you'll find in a retail store...

    Dust 514 Review - High Ambitions

    To be honest, I really don't like their choice of platform. Most player who play EVE are die hard PC Gamers. Most players who own a PS3 would rather play any other FPS. The only thing that might save this title is the fact that it's the only F2P title on PS3. Even then, they've alienated a huge...

    World of Tanks Dev Makes Entire Catalog "Free-to-Win"

    The Tiger is best played as a Support tank to be honest. Compared to the other tanks in the tier, the armor is relatively weak. It has a sick gun with a good fire rate, though. It's accurate as all hell too.

    Injustice: Gods Among Us Adding Mortal Kombat's Scorpion to Roster

    Don't like the addition of Scorpion? Don't buy/play him. Really guys. I actually like his new design too. Relax, this isn't the only time there have been crossovers in games (fighting games aside). And this doesn't mean they won't be adding more DC characters into the mix.

    Zero Punctuation: Metro: Last Light

    It probably is considering Australia is huge, and it's hot as fucking shit, and the Netherlands is quite tiny by comparison.

    Electronic Arts Signs Exclusive Star Wars Game Deal With Disney

    EDIT: Whoops misquoted someone. And I forgot who I was responding to. Oh well! I wouldn't call BF3 "dumbed down." People always rant about the lack of commander mode and voice comms. I agree with them on the voice comms, but I never saw any real benefit to having a commander beyond the...

    Electronic Arts Signs Exclusive Star Wars Game Deal With Disney

    This, so much this. If anyone can do a great Battlefront game, it's DICE. The only thing that really does worry me is how DRM will be handled.

    Jimquisition: Lawsuits, Memes, and Tasty Medicine

    Indeed. Keyboard Cat and Nyan Cat in Scribblenauts Unlimited isn't a parody. It's a straight up clone of a copyrighted image.

    Sleeping Dogs Free on PlayStation Plus Next Week

    What this guy said, great visuals, great combat, not a bad story at all.

    Jimquisition: Boob Wars and Dragon Crowns

    There's nothing really wrong with a game pandering to someone's sexual fantasies. This kind of pandering is something that happens in all forms of media. We all like to knock on 50 Shades of Grey for portraying BDSM in a juvenile light (Heck, even the people who are really into BDSM are all like...

    No Room For Multiplayer In Story-Driven Witcher 3

    It was mostly there to appease publishers. The DRM was pretty much only there to ensure the game wasn't launched prior to the street date. Beyond that it didn't do much esle. This is akin to encrypting files on your HDD when you pre-load a game on Steam.
