    I love Crysis and Warhead, though 2 & 3 are a bit too consolised for my liking compared to the first.

    I see that Crysis still has Securom DRM in the Steam version - haven't they got around to...

    According to the FAQ on the Steam community forums the game is based on the Wii/Gamecube version. The main game's cutscenes are real-time, but the Separate Ways campaign has only ever had...

    My biggest gripe is un-rebindable keys. Even supposedly PC-centric games like The Witcher did it. As a lefty who uses the cursor keys and other keys on the right side of the keyboard it drives me...

    I worked on the I-War games as a designer, so I can provide a bit of insight into their development.

    The reason the menu and UI system on I-War 2 seems a bit 'consoley' is because originally the...

    I stopped playing BF3 because of the way EA have handled the premium pack, especially the way they show off that you were killed by a 'Premium player' on the kill screen. These manipulations to make...

    According to the PC gaming wiki you can't use the arrow keys for movement, so that's a no sale for me.

    I've got a set of Goldring DR150's. Way better sound quality than any gaming headphones. I use a separate mic. It's not as convenient as a headset, but worth it for the better experience. Price is...

    I worked on that game and knew the artist who created most of the graphics and animations. He told me when his wife saw that woman he'd modelled and animated in the intro she went ballistic!

    Just played a round of BF3, and they're pushing the premium service in your face. Every time you get killed by someone who has bought the premium pack you get a screen showing their stats with...
  11. Battlefield Premium now available costs 39.99(!)

    I just had a message pop up on Origin that Battlefield Premium is now available for the bargain price of 39.99!

    That's 10 more than I paid for the full game. I've already got Karkand, so it's...

    I'd try something like Flixel - it's an 2D game oriented API for flash that is easy to program, and enables you to get very quick results. As it's game oriented it handles a lot of things for you...

    Fallout 3's ending was full of logic holes and narrative issues, and Bethesda released DLC that fixed those issues, so there is a precedent for narrative fixes, post release.

    The ending is really bad and full of plot-holes, but it's not the first time in the Mass Effect series that there's been gigantic plot holes.

    Look at ME1. Saren is looking for the conduit. What is...

    I didn't like ME2 anywhere near as much as ME1, mainly because though ME2 was more polished and the combat mechanics were better, its story was basically 'putting the band back together' and there...

    As I said it's more about getting the basics right, and ensuring that there are no unnecessary restrictions. It's not a specific left-handed issue, as Snarglefargen says, there are users with...

    It's not necessarily poor assigment of controls that gets me (though that is frustrating) it's that many games seem to get the basics wrong, and lock off areas of the keyboard or restrict bindings...
  18. Why, why, why can't devs get keymapping right?

    As a left-hander, one of my pet hates is PC games that don't implement keymapping properly, as I don't use the default WASD controls.

    Games like Dead Space which don't let you rebind the arrow...

    No mention of Independence War 1 & 2?

    The first is looking a bit dated now, especially in the UI department, and is very hard. It's one of the only space-sims that's is an actual simulation of a...

    I've got direct experience of this, as a couple of games I worked on are available on GOG, and I don't see a penny in royalties. I had a pretty senior role on one of them too, so it's not just a case...

    Actually the issue is that Steam insists that all DLC and patches are available through Steam. They don't mind if you sell DLC outside Steam, but you must let Steam also sell the DLC.

    EA don't...

    Tron 2.0 is probably my favourite game that I re-install every year or so. The Killer App patch makes it run very nicely on modern machines (including proper widescreen support), and due to the...
