Fallout 3 Lessons


When talking about Fallout 3 lessons, I guess the ones who will use them best of all are the people who created the game, and not those playing it. Why is this true, that's what you should see when playing it, or when reading our Fallout 3 review. Damn, we don't have any Fallout 3 review? Don't worry, we'll have it pretty soon. Fallout 3 is anything but a game to be taken lightly, believe me! Anyway, let's see those lessons now, shall we?
Fallot 3 Lessons
The story is very simple, and I fully agree with Bethesda's executive producer Todd Howard, who said the following, when asked about the things he learned from Fallout 3's feedback and needs to be used while working on Fallout 4: "Greatest lesson? Don’t let the game end, and don’t have a level cap."

While I fully agree with the above, I think that everything should have an end, but the end shouldn't come that soon, and the main quest should be closely connected with the side quests. After all, you can finish Fallout 3 without even having to discover over 50% of the map, and that's a shame.

Since I don't want to die waiting for Fallout 4, I can only hope the lessons have been learned, and they will come up with a new Fallout game without a level cap, an awesome story and, not at last, excellent graphics - all in time, as I said. After all, I am sure I'll have to upgrade my computer to play it, but at least I hope to see it before 2012!

Gears Of War PC Fix!


I know Gears of War may not be that fresh, but it's still a damn good game to kill your time with, especially online. Anyway, we talked about this game down to the small details some time ago, so you can go ahead and read the Gears of War PC review published here, on PlayerzBlog, because now we have to talk about the Gears of War PC fix. Why now? Well, it seems this game had a little time bomb in it...
Gears of War PC Fix
...simply because this venerable game refuses to start. Just read this - a bunch of users reported on the official game forum that they started getting an error saying something like this "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Gears of War\wargame-g4wlive.exe: You cannot run the game with modified executable code. Please reinstall the game."

Obviously, we're talking about people who bought the game and weren't using a cracked executable, but here's the catch - Epic signed the game's exe file with a digital signature, so that the built-in DRM routines check the signature to ensure you're not using a cracked version. So far, so good, only that the signature just expired!

Now, that's a really silly problem, but it happened! So...what about that Gears of War PC fix?

1. You could change the date of your computer back to 2007 before starting the game - silly solution to a silly problem, I know, but at least it works!

2. Don't think about reinstalling the game - it simply doesn't work!

3. At last, an Epic employee posted on the official forum, saying they are aware of the problem and currently working on a fix with Microsoft.

That's it folks - if you're looking for a Gears of War PC fix, there's only one, for now - travel back in time! :)

Need For Speed Cheats Death


In everything you do, there are turning points. And, in most cases, although sometimes it's far from what we wish, there's an end. THE END, just like in movies. Anyway, we're not talking about movies here, but about computer games, so what about Need For Speed? We all have seen what happened with the latest games in the series, especially Need for Speed: Undercover, but it seems the Need for Speed cow still has some milk left...
NFS Shift
...because EA simply won't leave the poor series where it belongs - in the gaming graveyard. At least they could think about something smart - "Need for Speed Zombies," "Need for Speed Undead," or even an adult racing game, called "Need for Speed Without Cover." If I think well, that would really be something interesting and, most important of all, ORIGINAL.

Anyway, my dreams are not the same with reality, since it seems the Need for Speed franchise is going to become a three-headed monster, because three bad games will always sell better than a bad game, but let's not draw any hasty conclusions and see what's in store for those who will still have the guts to taste another Need for Speed game.

OK, so here's the future - NFS World Online, a MMOG(they would better put back online those NFS Porsche servers, if you ask me), the Nintendo-only NFS: Nitro, and NFS: Shift for the PS3, 360, PSP, and PC. NFS: Shift is a very bad name, and the reason should be obvious - if the game won't be a masterpiece, or at least better than everything they've done in the past 5 years, you can easily remove the "f" from that last word...

For now, there's nothing more to say about this - only that Need for Speed cheats death one more time, but we have to see at least some early in-game movies to say more. As usual, we all see those involved in the Need for Speed projects mentioned above talking about them like we should expect the Holy Grail of racing games to be in EA's possession, and the new Need for Sped games, a taste of its powers, but I wouldn't believe anything they say.
