Legend: Hand of God [Aug. 26th, 2008|10:03 pm]

One of the things that has always bugged me about PC gaming is when I get a buggy game. Why is it that console games are released with much higher standards? It's like so many PC games get released with bugs so they can be patched later. It's no wonder so many industry insiders worry about the future of PC gaming.

Legend: Hand of God is a perfect example of the 'release now and patch later' mentality. This game had a lot of potential to be great, as it combined many elements of games like Titan Quest, but it is so damn buggy that I gave up playing it. I felt like I was beta testing the software, when that's something the developer should have done before releasing it to market.

I think this game still has some potential, but until they work out the bugs and release a major update, it's not worth your time or money. Why pay for something unfinished?

speaking of that, COD4 has an annoying bug in it that Activision has yet to address. While in game without warning you can either just freeze up, or get a black screen, and ctrl-alt-del won't work, esc won't work, the only thing you can do at that point is reboot. It sucks, it happens to me about once or twice every couple of days.

Check your video drivers. I've never had that happen to me.

my video driver is up to date, if you search the problem you'll see a ton of other people with the same problem. I guess some people are just lucky.
