@DarthaPerkinjan: You failed basic comprehension I see.
Yeah most any her mit is on Steam, atleast the majority, but Steam has more then just hermits on it, the numbers of people on steam dwarfs any console online userbase. Given that it is free you see many non hermits on it.
There you learned something today WHO would have thought?
Oh and go around touting an octo core when it is as small as it is is pretty damn stupid, you know... there are cell phones with octo cores around in the World. So basicly they would equal a ps4? good to know.
As for power, yeh remember to Count in your tv the power difference while present is not that big, use speakers? yeh you are now nearing pointless. *claps hands*
to make one correction, you will not "just" put in a game and play anymore, last gen killed that trend off completely.
But consoles are streamlined, easy to use and as for the PS4 it is atleast competent as a media hub for the tv out of the box, with minor hazzle.
The negatives are that you give up all kinds of freedom and WILL pay a lot more for console games, even through online for the most part.
The lack of freedom for a consumer follows hand in hand with ease of use. If it is a negative or not is up to each person.
The consoles also do have some major exclusives (from the console creater more or less, not alot of them, but enough to make you consider).
The PC is the direct opposite, games are vastly cheaper. It allows user input in whatever way you want. Mostly hazzle free, but due to said freedom some trainwrecks may occur. It also has its exclusives, but they are rarely in the same ballpark in Money spent as console exclusives (not talking quality here, given that both have hits and misses).
If you prefer the freedom to add mods, alter the game, and play with the input you prefer, then the PC is better. You would give up on the console exclusives ofcourse, and while it takes some tinkering and the pc CAN be used as a media hub, most people does nto do that. (Must say though that my pc and tv communicates just fine through Wireless, they are not even needed to be in the same room).
Where the PC gets points detracted, is how responsible you as a user have to be, consoles are time consuming with slow updates which are much too frequent (almost as frequent as the pc). but they are all Automatic, on PC it is not always the case, and each user needs to maintain his/hers pc for the optimal enjoyment, to some this is too daunting, and complex, and in that case the pc will be of Little worth.
It is clear that Doom has an identity crisis, and the doom of old simply won't attract many people outside the nostalgia driven manics.
For D4 to win they would need to reinvent it, to far more extreme degree then D3 was. And even then my faith in id is not that huge.
The way I see it, they should focus way more on fp/horror, the mindless gunning I doubt will attract alot of people. Sadly doing that is so removed from doom that it at that point will be a negative to call it Doom 4.
So either make it a spinoff and not a numbered sequal in the main sereis, or let Doom die with what Little dignety it has left.
sounds odd. Disks are ok? no scratches?
I would likely start by trying to play it in compatability mode, likely xp sp3 would be the better bet.
If nothing happens still, update sound and Graphics drivers.
If nothing still, look if something is halting the game from launching like av and the like.
On my way out the door, but if the issue persists, I will try to lend a hand getting it to Work, if no one else made it Work allready.
Nah, let us face it, it is weather we like it or not, a great avenue aswell as it can be seen as a decent service, I am not entirely sure how it looks on steam (logging in now, havent been on a few days (Christmas month and all).
But if it is such that all the category titles (that possibly can be on a pc) can be sold for cheaper? Well that is a great way for people with Little Money WHO wants to see what the fuzz was about to click and buy.
If anything it may reduse some of the butthurt always flowing through the web at Awards, and while they can not do it with every GOTY atleast that is a decent target to pick.
That said? lets see how this goes.
Yeh... no. As stated even for a Ninty game to Work on a phone it needs a serious controlle,r what is out now, seriously don't cut it. Say what you will about nintendo but the controllers they make all have really responsive and precise controls.
As someone else pointed out aswell, most Ios games fail misserably, most of the games there are small Group attempts at cheap games, I highly doubt that Ninty games at a reasonable pricepoint will lose a huge portion of the possible market (Xcom anyone?).
Nah Ninty should first rebrand the Wii U, perhaps even accept another pricecut, so far both "nxt gen" consoles have been an utter letdown from a hardware standpoint, so the Wii U which got hated on for weak hardware, could get a second chance by raising awareness Again and putting out a slightly bigger library of games (I have 4 games right now, basicly all 4 games I would ever want from the present selection).
If Ninty should go third party I think the better fit would be the Steambox Ironically, it is open platform, if Ninty just made a virtual service, they would not just have the most powerful "console" to play with, but would also Work on every pc, and well those be numerous aswell.
Heck as of now I think Nintys chances for sucess are as good as the other two, you know the two consoles loved by many but bring Little more tehn loss to the parent Companies?
Oblivion is made in such a way that every "questline" (story) is selfcontained, with a very few exceptions. But yeah, apart from some talk in Towns about this Island, and maybe some new random sidequests (can't remember) nothing will in any way alterthe questlines from the base game.
It will sit inactive untill you chose to go there, and if I remember there is a level cap on it, so you can not even begin it before a certain level.
Now there was Knights of the Nine, which felt more forced onto you, but if I remember you could also ignore that untill you wanted to.
So every single selfcontained story (or questliens) will never interfere with eachother, or close off other questlines. At most you will be directed to where each of the major lines are so you can commence them at your wish.
And because I did not read your reply proper: Yeah this very much feels like it is set after the Mainline.

You sound like you're looking for hack&slash dungeon crawlers more than RPG. If you're willing to go back in time, Siege of Avalon blends both genres very well (if you can get it to run). Also, Titan Quest and D&D Dragonshard.
But most hack and slash dungeon crawlers ARE RPGs unless I'm mistaken?
Better not get me started on that vietnam.
Let's hear it!
Well technically they are not.
If we take the grandfarther of both (D&D) the rulebooks made it quite clear that while the books could be used for both, different systems and subtractions were suggested.
Given that the grandfarther of RPGs stated that dungeoncrawlers although closely related, were NOT RPGs (Think they referred them as "kick in the door" games).
Basicly all RPGs are centered about choice and consequence, in RPGs very Little needed to be based on comabt, the Dungeon crwalers were focused only on the "fighting" mechanics compiled into something most Akin to a board game.
So I would say that they are not related, given that the people WHO you know, invented RPGS (and the dungeon crawler) referred to them as two different kinds of games (And now we know I have spent WAY too much time on PnP RPGs).
Basicly when the only choice you are given is violence, then it is not an rpg, they simply use the core mechanics of the fighting. (if curious this is listed in the DM core rulebooks in every edition I think, although I only remember the lineout being in the players handbook in the 2nd ed only?)
not sure if alot changes outside the Isles, but you might aswell just install it. It will simply spawn a gateway that you can use when you feel like it. I would likely install it from the get go, then finish atleast 2 of the guild lines and the mainline before taking a trip into the madness.
But enjoy ^^ it is a good game, the isles likely better then the basegame, but everything is worth trying ^^
they all have negatives, but I think the worst one has to be Negative, not for us gamers, but for internal policiesand treatment of their own workforce.
EA can be annoying but they atleast try to fix the issues they have with games and they occationally dip their toes into new IPs.
Ubi is pretty much the consumer prick, I am sorry for them in alot of ways, they try to do alot of Things, but they tend to fall flat in sales nomatter how good games they make. So when they make Things people want, they are accused of doing the same thing over and over (although an anual game in a series is pretty damn stupid in the long run). They deserve flak for how they view the pc community. And are of the 3 the most PC hostile by a fairly large margin.
5 to 6 years would be preferred for me.
Shorter and it would feel like an absolute Waste of effort to buy a console, longer and it will be far too stale. It also depends on the stride the consoels have, I think the PS3 has gone through around 6 years, no? and it feels around the right time to swap. The 360 lost steam long ago (har de har har)
the sometimes projected 10 years, are far too long, and if PC or tablets wont kill consoles, 10 year cycles WILL.
I perfer Kevin, Jeff would often say funny Things but rarely have alot of good points as to why he liked or disliked a game. And he had a focus on one area of gaming and ignored all other venues of games (logical he was brought in to review console games originaly), which he still often feels like doing. That is ok if you know what you are going into, but if you are to explain about any given game on any given platform I prefer Kevin.
When that is said, Jeff is the better showman, where as Kevin lacks behind his own Words.
All in all they are likely some of the better in the industry, and Jeff certainly is the more influential.
I would pick Brad over Jeff I think, And ofcourse Kasavin pretty much stands as THE best reviewer EVER.
I tend to find it odd that we don't have alot of great reviewers anymore :\ we used to have alot.
A companion system without a doubt. The Wii U will likely stand to have some of if not the most highly scoring exclusives. But it will trail behind in any multiplat, and multiplats makes up the majority of games.
It is likely a worthwhile Investment if you have the Money, I don't regret getting one, but my most playied system is by far the PC.
Out of those two? Gamespot.
It is not that Gamespot has very good reviews, they got a few decent reviewers, but overall scores are WAY too high. IGNs are even higher, often it feels like IGN rates HYPE rather then GAMES.
I liked Gamespot when they were WAY more strict, bowadays they are on the level of IGN and Gametrailers. So neither are great as a basis.
