News Comments > Rebellion Plans to Make Better Games
17. Re: Rebellion Plans to Make Better Games<br> Following the critical failure of Rebellion's recent ga Nov 19, 2011, 18:04 Shataan
 
I see what you are saying Ventura. But if you reread Rebellion s excuse, even tho valid.... Basicly they are gonna market the games to you telling you how freaking cool it is.... only to show up afterwards saying the game is only as good as the deal they took.

rough translation... you are paying for a game they marketed you into thinking was gonna rock, only to find out later that the game quality or lack thereof is because of the deal they were given and took.
My 60 bux is worth alot more to me. I sure hope that GearBoxs` Aliens Colonial Marines delivers the whole package PROMISED. If not, the Aliens franchise is both cursed, and doomed to failure.

To openly blame the crap games on a bad deal tho? Comon. If ya get into bed like that, don`t blame your business partner for being a lousy piece of azz.... right????

It takes 2 to Tango. The sad part is I really hate to see AVP, of all licences become Rebellions casualty. With the excuse of "pay us more and the game will rock".

How bout grab some integrity and just do it justice. Irregardless of the bottomline. Under promise, over deliver. How many times are we to keep hearing how "we LOVE ALIENS and the licence"..... and then we gotta read about it all afterwards in the obituaries.

"You’re only as good as the deal you’re offered."

Ahuh, well we are NOT feeling the love are we???? What we are seeing is really one hell of a Pre Nup more or less. "if you pay Rebellion THIS much, our game may or may not give you wood".

In the end who really takes it up the Guadal Canal? The Buyer/Player base.

hmmmm But Government can make huge dough off of tobacco and liquer sales, get the whole Nation addicted.... and that is A OK... right? Not to mention not properly tested pharmacuticals that can and do kill peeps on a reg basis, but are still out on the market.

"is Cialis good for you? May cause flatulance, butt dribbles, heart attack, cancer, memory loss.... irregularity and or death etc etc etc... ask your Doctor tho is Cialis ir right.... for you"

you get the picture right?

I think there is a whole host of issues being totally ignored in our society.... that should be fixed 1st, but maybe Government controlled addictions ARE ok.

4. aaaah Trespasser... Nov 16, 2011, 09:45 Shataan
 
for all of Trespassers flaws... it STILL can`t be beat. Why they are doing an asscam view Jurassic Park game is anyones guess.

Can you imagine if Trespasser was made today? Well, by the looks of JP The Game, Trespasser doesn`t have anything to worry bout. The only Dino game to come close, was that Dino Hunting game way back. That was cool, and looked sweet too.

Why pray tell would anyone need to use the console command, when renderahead limits can be set in the Geforce nVidia vis applet settings?

This is hardly what I`d call a solution. The real solution would be an updated nVidia driver for BF 3.

And the next time I see anything bout BF 3 advertized, I hope it is to tell us the devs released a patch update, OR nVidia just released a true BF 3 optimized driver.

Personally, I don`t give a rats azz about EAs B/S issues with any foxing hacks.

What we NEED is the freaking patch for BF 3. So DICE/EA/Origin???? Get your sh*t wired and start releasing some performance updates!!!!

News Comments > MechWarrior Online Art & Details
20. Re: MechWarrior Online Art & Details Nov 1, 2011, 16:53 Shataan
 
About Hawken.

I am happy bout Hawken, if only because the Dev team doing it is small, but is actually delivering at least real Next Gen visuals.... with an actual incockpit view. Something we have yet to see from almost any Mechwarrior incarnation.

True.... Mechwarrior 3 was done fantasticly as far as mech movement and an incockpit view are concerned. Mechwarrior 3 actually
FELT like we were piloting a mech.



"a full-blown mech *SIM" ?

I`ll believe it when I see it. Promises.... and Marketing info are worth absolutely nothing these days. I am from Missourri, especially when it comes to Mechwarrior. Whether Mechwarrior 3 can be eclipsed as far as piloting/movement/feel..... remains to be seen.

News Comments > Consoles Became "Lead Platform" Late in BF3 Development
53. Re: Consoles Became Nov 1, 2011, 15:21 Shataan
 
"but if anyone thinks that they purchased this game for something other than multiplayer, then that's someone purchasing without research."

Like it would take alot of research? Hardly. I paid for the whole package. And it matters to me. Yeah, I spend obviously most time in the mp. Sp doesn`t really hold alot of replay after all.



But I am pretty freaking annoyed that the PC version of the campaign, felt like it did once the quick time shit took over. For me, this killed the sp campaign. It was like taking a giant step forward, and then bam..... 3 or 4 giant steps backwards. Like a de evolution.... if you will.

I love the mp end. A big pat on the back for mp for sure, but they better not be high 5ing over the crap quick time event shit. For that matter, if they can`t quit screwing over their own sp campaign, I`d rather they just dropped it altogether next time, and it be pure mp only.

20. ahuh.... really? Nov 1, 2011, 11:42 Shataan
 
"Our ambition at DICE is to use the power of each individual platform to get the most out of the game"

Because your blatant consolization of the sp PC campaign almost destroyed my enjoyment of it. Sp campaigns for me are an important part, and what I pay for.

Your quicktime button mashing events REALLY forced me out of some pretty awesome immersion. I just don`t see the point of amazing sound, and visuals meant to obviously suck the player INTO the game world, only to be yanked back out again by unintuitive quicktime event button mashing... resulting in quite a few replays where we hopefully get lucky.

I`d like a sp campaign, but it done in such a way as it gets players to know how to properly pilot in mp.

" So not one publisher looked at that tech demo and thought it would sell?"

Just goes to show ya that the Publishers really don`t have a clue bout just how long we have been nearly begging for a new real Next Gen Mechwarrior. They do NOT know the Mechwarrior or SIM buyer bases.

I as well do not believe aNY dev team or Publishers anymore when they say the game will be PC centric or exclusive. BF 3 was supposed to be PC, yet the sp campaign came to us full consolized.


If.... IF.. if a real Next Gen Mechwarrior ever becomes a reality, I hope it is HEAVY in SIM look and FEEL, but easy to grasp. And, it MUST have an actual incockpit view. No quaker HUD B/S.

So after we pushed the limit of tech on the consoles, we consolized the PC version of BF 3. Well, at least the sp PC campaign. Gotta love those button mashing quick time events on PC.

"Name the game that has better gameplay."

I will prolly be ok with BF 3s onrail stuff. But you gotta admit, game devs are relying way too much on cookie cutter game design now. Alot of how they are scripting has been done many times before.

This WILL come back to bite em on the azz. It already is by the sounds of it. Let`s put it this way. After I have played BF 3, I don`t want to see it repackaged again in BF 4. However the Reviews are stating quite a few been there done thats.

I guess if the majority don`t mind paying for the same game, but with new skins....... *shrugs* Good thing there are at least some new visuals elements, and motion etc... in BF 3.

News Comments > Battlefield 3 Beta Infographic
11. Re: Battlefield 3 Beta Infographic Oct 18, 2011, 08:35 Shataan
 
Imo this was not a beta at all. This was a test of the net code/servers. In a Beta you test the whole game. All maps, and the sp game testing as well. This wasn`t a bugfind. The bugs were so bloody easy to find, they sure didn`t need the public player base to find em.

This was purely about server load imo. The real Beta was being tested inhouse. Calling 2 measely maps a Beta is a sham. Of course, we don`t get those kinda Betas anymore, cause you can`t trust the average peeps these days to not leak the whole Beta.

News Comments > RAGE PC Texture Fix Coming
89. The way I see it.... Oct 16, 2011, 10:38 Shataan
 
They hyped the fox outta this game. Now think about this. The level design AND modelling is freaking amazing... right? Well, these things FORCE us to take a real close look. At least I wanna look at everything closer.

So it is when you take that closer look, that is where the textures let everyone down. Had this been a flight sim or a racing game only, all would be fine and dandy. But, it is an RPGlike fps. Upclose and friendly.

Peeps expected the texture work to at least match the rest of the game. And for the ball to be dropped on PC like this, well it smacks of lazyazz codework, from the peeps you`d LEAST and last expect that to happen with.

If this fix actually comes, I will give the sp game another go JUST to hang around and look closer. It might have a pretty dramatic effect. The difference to me being RAGE outta the gates was more like a water color painting.

After the patch, it might actually look high rez.
