It's going to end up like hollywood, where they make these horrible movies on low budgets knowing they are still going to make a profit, no matter how horrible the movie is.

Because the alternative, EA buying every single developer and push them to develop newer, bigger sequels full of bugs they wont bother fixing , is just so much better..

So what do you want from hollywood? more 200 million summer-blockbusters??, yeah thats exciting.. Instead those money could have been spent on fresh directors and 20 low budget movies, and yeah, maybe half of them would suck, but if there was one new reservoir dogs, or pulp fiction in there, thats a thousand times more exciting then another DOOM/Hulk/spiderman/batman/starwars etc movie.

9. Re: Don't forget new Alien Swarm stuff! Dec 13, 2005, 17:58 BicycleRepairMan
As somebody said here (or was it somewhere else?) the problem with UT is not lack of options or game content, but perhaps the complete opposite.. I mean, load up UT, and lets see. I want to play deathmatch: I'll just join this server.. hmm everybody has big heads.. and low gravity.., lets do some CTF then *joining CTF server* hmm, seems there is only one gun now, and it kills instantly..

Join a CS server, and youll get: CS. on Dust 1 or 2. everybody buys AK or M4, sometimes AWM to "go crazy" a round or two.

Point is, with games: keep it simple, stupid, people want to compete on even grounds , be the best, or atleast good at a game, if your good in UT, well.. what UT? onslaught? assault? instagib CTF? there is no one answer, no common ground, hence no community..

This is why I, and many, many others play UT with bots, because then its my rules, my mutators, my game.

26. bugs Dec 13, 2005, 11:54 BicycleRepairMan
Seriously, what where the serious showstopper bugs in Postal 2?? like every FPS for the last 10 years I'm sure it had some issues, but I really cant remember anything specific.. except the loadtimes, they where too long, but then again the levels where pretty big

As for "poor gameplay" , Postal is one of the more open-ended FPS's I've ever seen.. there were lots of cool combos with setting stuff on fire, shoveling, booting in doors, head-football(that was just pure class) and lots more, also the randomly appearing marching bands.. man, a game that lets you set a marching band on fire!, it was like I'd died and come to heaven.

Also, I'm a sucker for good shotguns, and IIRC Postal 2's shotty was among the top 10* Ive seen in a game..

*Best game shotguns ever:
1.DOOM1, single barrel
1.DOOM2, DB.
3.Action-Halflife single barrel
4.Halflife 1 and 2.
5 Serious Sam DB
6.Postal 2

23. imagine Dec 8, 2005, 14:51 BicycleRepairMan

imagine there's no Heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today...

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
No religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace...

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

25 years ago today, Dec.8, 1980, John Lennon was shot and killed.

hmm, works perfectly in my Firefox (1.5), I may have done something I cant remember(like allow popups from nrk) , as I frequently watch Nrk's stuff.

Now that it works, I need to tell you about my favourite show these days, Slε Pε Ring: I give you:

I have no idea what you're referring to there GH -- the link doesn't automatically open up a video clip or anything, and I don't read Norwegian

I think you need to register to see the clip..

its a clip of norwegian pop-artist Mira Craig doing a stage dive and failing miserably, she actually broke her knee. In the video, you can actually hear her landing on the concrete in a very human-against-concrete kind of sound.

but thanks for your brilliant fucking insight anyway

Oops, sorry about that, I was really tired and somehow misunderstood the first posts, somehow I thought it followed the BN theme of "finally not a ww2 game,blah blah" and I wrongfully qouted you in the process. now that i read the first post again, my post doesnt make sense. Sorry.

Mr. Moore suggested Oprah for prez in "Dude, Wheres My country"

Speaking of that, here is a clip worth seeing again.. booh!?

Other than what I assume is a typo in the album's release date (2025 instead of 2005) I don't get what is special about the link. Anybody care to clue me in?

Sure, guns'n'roses is well.. dead. Except for Axl Rose, they are now called Velvet revolver.

However Axl Rose still holds legal rights to the G'N'R name, so I guess its his project now... which probably means 2025 is a bit optimistic estimate

2. Re: hmmm. Dec 5, 2005, 12:12 BicycleRepairMan
As far as I know, 5.56 millimeter bullets can have full metal jackets as well, so maybe its not based on the movie..

5.56 is a more modern caliber for assault rifles, so it might be a way to say this is like FMJ, only more modern combat?

*sheesh* I wish people would get over the whole "he has glowing stuff on him!! oh noez!!" thing.

It only annoys me because its such a good game, which means they've pu alot of work into it, and it has this obvious, in-your-face mistake that puts a damper on just about every good moment in the game, simply by reminding me that "its a game, and the AI is designed not to see me", if the green lights werent there, it would feel much more like I was actually good at hiding..

One thing thats always annoyed me in SC is how you can sit like 30cm directly infront of the "Alert guards" staring directly at him with three giant green spotlights in you forehead, and the guard goes "Ah, 'twas probably nothing." seriously, those green lights are just stupid.

News Comments > New Day of Defeat: Source Map
27. Re: No subject Dec 1, 2005, 17:54 BicycleRepairMan

It need not and should not be done by only one person if the map is drafted in advance.

Have you ever made a map?? drafted in advance? wtf? A map needs to be done basically by one person*, for so many reasons.. design, sizing, consistency, compiling, testing (release candidates needs to be compiled) and not least, game balance. whether you are pro or not, a map is a path you make as you walk it, its not done till its done.. Sure its smart and useful to have a draft/sketch but just adding more people is useless..

I liked the novel comparison, like say you have a story for a book, and say "these people end up dead, this is the killer, and this is how the detective solves it", if you had one writer on each chapter, the book would still end up a mess, full of inconsistencies..

*one can make textures as well, but this doesnt really speed the progress of the map itself, since textures often relay on a finished design of the map itself..

6. Re: No subject Dec 1, 2005, 00:12 BicycleRepairMan
just out of curiosity, as I havent played it myself, how many maps are there in BF2, and how many are actually played?

In the old dod, there where plenty of maps, yet MANY servers where anzio or avalanche 24/7.

Quality over quantity. valve could probably have released over a hundred half-assed maps by now if they wanted to. what would be the point?

29. Re: How'd I miss this? Nov 26, 2005, 07:15 BicycleRepairMan
but it felt like it was having some trouble fitting into the engine and, excluding graphics, it felt quite a few steps behind DoD

Current version is 3.3, and it has a new movement system, feels more slick now than ever, but yes, they've done lots of hacking just to make it fit into UT, and theyve gone beyond what your'e supposed to be able to mod in the engine, now that they have the full engine, all that wont be a problem anymore..

And yes, compared to DOD:source the graphics arent quite there, but IMHO , RO actually has better looking weapon models etc, and the new levels looks better than what you can expect on the UT engine..

But ofcourse, Source is a newer engine, and HDR looks awesome..

EDIT , i mis-read your post, but IMO I think its ahead of DOD in most departments.. but it takes some getting used to the different gameplay.. There are also some levels that arent that good, or atleast have a very steep learning curve, so new players end up just walking for too long only to get shot from some hidden sniper, or blown up by the nades that are very hard to see coming.. hopefully RO:O will make it easier to get into the game, because once you do, the gameplay is awesome..

Lets see, pay for R.O? uuuum no......What happened to all the free mods everyone was gonna make with the source code that was gona be soo user and mod friendly and easy to use that we should be swamped with source mods? All im seeing is a purchase to play half done, buggy, awfull multiplayer experience so far with source not to mention they gakked everything over 32 players. R.O. my thoughts is keep it free or it will die. Garranteed.

what Dagok said, without all the hatin'

Want source mods? well try Hidden:Source , for a more total conversion ,these things take time, so nothing big is out yet, but check out Insurgency, from some of the people behind Red Orchestra , this mod seems to be awesome.
