Effort < Reward.

You gotta remember that all their servers running Gamespy can now be updated and reused for future game servers.

EA did not choose to put down the GameSpy service, but yes they chose not to look for alternatives because it probably isn't cost effective. They also did not lie, they put out that they would look for ways to save it but concluded that they would not do it afterwards.

Try to see it from an enterprise view, it helps.

It is sad when they are being blamed for the one thing that is not their fault. Credit and punishment where it is due.

Also remember what Khan said in Metro 2033.
"It all depends on your point of view. Try to get a better understanding of things before you make your judgement."

It is still not enough to validly add funds to try and save them. I know they said they weren't going to let them die, but EA found some issues when they tried to save certain games like BF2. It is the circle of life, even for games. Yin and Yang.

Bottom line: It isn't EA whose at fault here. Nobody is. An old service is shut down and all games using this service will be cut as follows. EA is at least announcing what happens on their side. I've not seen a post from Activision or anyone else yet though.

What I am saying is, if your comment is "ermagerd, this is bs", then you need to read a few things first.

All games will suffer this effect one time.

Java was even supposed to be killed off by now.

They would have to dig up all network code from ALL games using GameSpy service and create another service themselves, then buy servers and maintain them for a minor percentage of gamers? That, even to me, is bad business. You want bankruptcy? Cause thats how you get bankruptcy.

As the suggested ones in this very post? It is just that there will be no original official servers avaliable at the hit of a "search" button. Use of console could still allow you to manually connect to a server, if such is programmed in (Such as ValVe games like CSS). But I understand this reasoning. As long as newer games come out, capacity will always be a question. Dear lord, the day WoW support will go out ahahahahaha.

What really happens is that official servers are shutting down. There will be no official or community servers when you hit "search". You can still wire up a virtual LAN and play "Local" matches with all your friends at will, so yeargh! It is not the end times! THE END TIMES HAS NOT COME! Except for consoles. Consoles are ******.

In truth, this is an effort to update the multiplayer service by letting an old unsupported one die. Natural order of life and whatnot. The fact that you would "need" to buy new games as a basic user is just a good side meal for the companies.

Not just EA. All the old CoD 1-3, several other company games including Ubisoft and Activision. Nobody was this mad when Bungie announced the death of Halo 2 multiplayer in favor of Halo: Reach >_>

Games like BF2 and such were unsavable due to issues in base code or net code or some stuff. I would believe games that could be savored a little while longer, would be. But this is the natural course of life. Good, old multiplayer games must die so new ones can take their place. Too bad the new ones are rarely up to par with the old ones.

First of all, I think you mean "Eat twice as much" and "Be twice as skinny" and "twice as tall", since if you say "half as much" that basically means your course / 2, instead of course x 2.

2nd of all, you are all cheeky *****. I wish my metabolism was half as good as you guys :(

The aspect ratio ratio is kinda bad, but I like the tech. What I think you should do is program a "walk-cycle" and layer it with the idle if the character moves, specially with a sideways touch. Subtle up/down movement, alternating with left/right.

You should also get a character artist and start making some new FP hands, maybe even a full-body rig and toss off those fp hands, but thats heavy work. If you need any help you could message me, I'd be glad to assist.

Posting an updated version of your current tech would be nice aswell.

CBA, don't care and blergh. People shouldn't need the hall of fame of reckognition to get work and motivation, rather that they are creating and awesome product. I might play a mod, I might acually rate it if I can be bothered. That "download" stat should be far more worth than a "vote" from alot of people who also makes comments about it.

I doubt it. The more eye candy, the more processing power is needed. Just because its an older engine, doesn't mean you cant spectacle it beyond belief.

Call of Duty's engine is based off Quake 4.

Windows 8 GUI suck, but they've made innovation that helps performance and improves gaming. As with MAC, yes it's good for designing and graphical stuff, but mostly to do with videos and images as it was designed for.

It can be a powerfull tool, but games aren't made for Macs. As said by others they are overpriced and probably less than 10% of the gaming market, which is a consideration for developers if they wish to spend time porting to a minority.

I can't say I am for exclusives but on the console side it is unforgivable since a port is basically fitting it to the other side of buttons from my point-of-view but porting from console to PC is a bad practice. Porting from PC to Mac is not a priority since they probably have a console you can port to and they can get it anyway.

Linux is another side because it is a pure optimized but different framework. There are applications that make windows apps working so thats a workaround, and there is even less Linux users, allthough Linux has a great deal of good quality OS.

Microsoft also owns about 50% of apple anyway, so you are essentially buying a MS product, might aswell buy the better and cheaper one called PC.
