    Starhawk

    The other thread seems to has been lost like the PS4 thread.

    I worked around data for 2-3 years now, never seen something magically vanish :/ No logs, no backups to recover. These disappearing threads are freak of nature.


    Good point in the vid about if you are not willing to crunch, your heart isn't in it. I think crunching comes naturally if your boss is good and the project is good.

    I am "crunching" at the moment, too (have been for the past 2 months). I am now at the end of writing my thesis, and it's fucked up. It's not that I don't like what I am doing... it's actually quite funny (Non-Photorealistic Stroke Rendering for robotic painters), but writing the thesis itself (instead of the program, which is more or less finished) is just frustrating. I has taken me 2 weeks now to write about 20 pages (of ~40 to 50 all in all). And I only have 4 weeks left.

    What I am trying to say is, even if you like the job you do, it will never encompass ALL the things you need to do. There's things you'll like in making games and there's stuff you won't. I find bugfixing sometimes REALLY frustrating, because it often means reading through pages and pages of source code without any real leads or pointers as to what the problem really is (complex dependencies make this really problematic). And then you see "I am such a fuckwad, I cast the negative integer to a uint withint a parameter"... (this happened to me two weeks ago^^)).

    BUT... after the crunch, you'll probably be in a prolonged "happy" phase, because you accomplished something awesome.
    Kept you waiting

    Pffft, so many May games, most are SP though so might pick this up as a MP fix (even though I am continuing my quest for 15th prestige on Blops).

    Anyone here getting it?

    Probably not me... burned out on Warhawk... don't care for MP... hence not really. Looks good, though.

    There's a special kind of nerd though, who thinks computers will overtake mankind in thirty years, changing humanity in ways incomprehensible to us now, ignoring the third of the world without electricity. It gives spiritual significance to technology developed primarily for entertainment and warfare and gives nerds something to obsess over that isn't the crushing vacuousness of their lives.

    Awesome, I haven't dug into a meaty MP game in a while Will get the PSN version of course. I am sure it'll be priced fairly.

    Boo! I'll wait for PSN. It's odd Warhawk was PSN only (at first), now they went retail only (at first).

    Well, Warhawk was day one PSN AND Retail, as not to piss off the retail chains... but it is interesting that this isn't available as a network game right off the bat.

    Oh, in NA it was. In Europe it took a month for retail version (Warhawk). These games always 'felt' like PSN games though and it just feels wrong to buy it on disc. Plus I am at a stage now where I download anything I can instead of disc.

    I am sure PSN version won't be far off.

    Game looks awesome, but I'll admit a bit intimidating...lol

    So much micro managing going on'-) Wonder if the pick-up and play aspect from Warhawk is gone now?
