Apparently Bethesda bought the rights, so that's why the team isn't doing/won't be doing it.

Thats troubling since I dont think Beth has the talent to continue a game such as STALKER

yah, I'll contribute money to a bunch of eastern Europeans and sit confidently knowing they won't take a walk with the funding.

necrovision was so so. Not as good as Painkiller but I played through it twice so that says something.

It was certainly better than Bulletstorm.

So what happens when 1 of your 4 squad members disconnects, suddenly its 4 vs 3 and you lose, when a bot would take over, you might not.

Is simple developer laziness, there is no reason not to have bots and skirmishes apart from the fact that it takes effort.

I would hardly call these guys "lazy". Second, if someone drops out you will be faced with the same issue had one of your lancemates been killed.....you soldier on and do the best you can. If you win the victory is that much sweeter. Lastly, we don't know if there will or won't be bots.

BT fans are truly lucky that we have Russ and Bryan attached to this project. They "get it". Much of what they are implementing is stuff that we've dreamed about for years but never saw.

Not sure of what physics issues are present. Physics in comparison with the original or just wonky physics in general?

Jetpacks are too weak and behave horribly under all circumstances. Having to mash the spacebar repeatedly just to turn is not smart design (yeah I switched MB2 and space, wanna fight about it?). Weapons are a total clusterfuck of varying inheritance. Piloting vehicles is just awkward across the board.

The maps are all shit, too, heavily favoring cappers (temple ruins was better in this regard). Nox is the only map I can't really complain about design wise, except it's too small.

I started to enjoy it much more once I stopped trying to compare it with the originals. Generally speaking, you get the same experience but you have to adapt to the changes, not all of which are bad.

I play it because it's as old school as they come, which is something I needed after all my time in TF2.

It's not well done and still has a cornucopia of fundamental issues (skiing and projectile physics are hotly debated constantly).


BTW, that's a funny video

It's not done well? Are we playing the same game?

They've done a phenomenal job of emulating the old school feel of the originals while making the F2P aspects not only tolerable but actually interesting. It feels very polished. Even a lot of the nitwits at TribalWar are grudgingly admitting that, for what it is, its pretty decent.

OMG OMG CUTTER LOOK... SCREENSHOTS! *faints*

Unimpressive ones, at that.

What happened to the game Tinker and Smith were working on?

Long story short: Smith & Tinker left when all the major publishers rejected the original Mechwarrior 5 because MS wouldnt allow a PS3 port.

After reading the MWO site and now looking at the screenshots, it was probably for the best.

I'm looking forward to hearing more about it. This is kind of what console gamers need, to get out of that buy-god-awful-shit-at-$60-and-be-thankful rut. Put 'em through one good Steam sale, and they'll see.

Isn't this problem that MegaTextures need to be compressed heavily on consoles? In that case, and I think this was ItBurn's point, isn't this going to happen again (and again and again until consoles ship with AAG 4GB+ VRAM)?

The folks citing compression are right on- there is now an option in RAGE to turn textures to "full on all the time" and it makes a very high demand on the CPU, not the GPU/VRAM.

PC people got screwed out of a decent texture pack, it's that simple. If die-hards are fortunate D4 will be developed for the XBOX720.


The console crowd didn't fare any better. Particularly the PS3.

Carmack losing his touch? I hope not.
