Hmm, if that's the case I have to wonder about the logic behind their anger. To be mad that you have three (or more) great games rather than one doesn't seem to make much sense. Aren't choices and the availability of options supposed to be good things? Personally it seems to me that having wo great sequels and a good port out would make gamers happy: again, if you're a gamer, variety and "a whole bunch of stuff to do" seems like it'd be good.

Unless what you're getting at is that the supposedly dated Halo won't do as well because the other more modern shooters are coming out. That makes sense as well, but again, I don't think it's any reason to be angry about this. What do consumers care, apart from sequels and add-ons, if a particular game does well? Seems like the devs/publishers would be more rowdy about that than gamers.

The last interpretation I can think of (comments about D3 and HL2 aside, then) is that you're saying PC gamers would be mad that it's taken so long to come out and that some features (like co-op, it seems) then might not even make the cut. If I had been gunning for PC Halo all these years, I'd be glad it's coming out at all!

Just conversing, trying to get some different sides to light.

At least in regards to this article, that would make sense because it focuses on MP and how the PC version of multiplayer will differ or emulate the prior version. But I haven't heard much about SP either.

17. Ports May 12, 2003, 12:26 Morgan19
 
Regarding the "apart from 6 maps, what's changing?" comment. Like I mentioned below, the last console experience I had was with my NES and SNES, but what changes are usually made when porting a game? The only things I can think of off the top of my head are incresed resolution, controls for mouse/keyboard rather than controller, and beefed-up ("real," if you will :)) multiplayer. What exactly (apart from co-op, which seems to be a split as to whether people care about it or not) is it that they're doing or not doing with the PC port that has people up in arms?

(EDIT-) Oh, and for Gandhi: a general w00t.

Guess I'll be the minority for today's class. I don't own an Xbox, had the chance to try Halo a couple times in-store, couldn't care less about co-op, and am therefore looking forward to this one on the PC despite however long ago it was originally released. Not everyone has an Xbox, PS2, PC, Gamecube, etc. etc. to throw around.

Is City17 where HL2 is taking place? I haven't been keeping up with the now-possible influx of HL2 news and that's the first I've heard that name.

I think you guys are being a bit hard on them. After reading through the article briefly and looking at the shots myself, I have to admit that that's pretty damn impressive for a "small German company"'s engine that was originally just a tech demo. Maybe the lighting isn't up to snuff, but those environments are beautiful, especially the couple beach/jungle-looking shots... Vibrant, rich colors, a pretty realistic-looking soldier model, and very sharp textures.

Maybe it's because my age-group was in on the days of DOOM and Q1 (not knowing how old you guys are), but the things recent shooters can do and display have me amazed. You guys are too jaded.

(EDIT-) And now to be a total hypocrite (heh), I thought the same thing about those Breed clouds, Dookie. The tiling doesn't look natural, considering that when you look at Earth from space you can see hurricanes and naturally-flowing cloud ebbs. But that aside, that's a VERY impressive display of what their engine can do.

6. Re: find some (new to me) screenies here May 8, 2003, 10:50 Morgan19
 
Nice shots there, Elvis. I really like the atmosphere and architecture of the European-looking (French or Italian?) street in the second one, that's a nice departure from the HL we're used to. The Starship Troopers-esque aliens in the water're pretty creepy too, and that last shot looks like it could be out of a newspaper article. Very cool indeed!

(EDIT-) lol, And some of those comments are worth sifting through, at least the ones I can read.

As for "exercise", your opinions need exercise. They're kind of flabby.

That's the best reply I've ever heard.

1. Demo May 1, 2003, 14:55 Morgan19
 
Speaking of Breed... Last I heard was that the demo was slated for mid-April. I checked the main site and they haven't mentioned it again, but has anyone heard any more news on a demo?

What I don't get is how you can bitch and moan and, in your own words, "scream bloody murder" BEFORE you even know what UT2k4 is or have any inkling what it'll contain, cost, or anything else! For goodness sake, this very news post says it's something that'll be more of an add-in or continutation rather than a start-over-scrap that'll make you ditch the game every year for a new one. By reading some of these posts you'd think people are *gasp* complaining for the sake of having something to complain about! Imagine that.

As for Q3:TA, I (and many others) loved it. And it was only $20 off Amazon, not $50. Exaggeration and over-generalizations will get you nowhere, my friend. In any case, how you're comparing a single expansion pack to promised yearly updates (note the word update agian, not REPLACEMENT) is beyond me.

Ahh well, keep on whining about things that haven't even been released if you want.

Yet you took the time to grace the boards with your opinion. Wouldn't you rather post somewhere that matters, then?

Somehow I don't think that "patching is hard" article is going to help Microsoft's public image much.

boy, you really have to be lonely to play this game...

No more so than any other game. What difference does it make what the subject matter is? Unless it's a MP game, you're either shooting things alone, solving puzzles alone, jumping over bottomless pits alone, saving the kingdom alone, solving the mystery alone, etc. One of the biggest points of games is to simulate things, be it reality or not.

12. Watching for under $100 Apr 30, 2003, 09:06 Morgan19
 
The PS2 works fine as a DVD player, and you don't NEED a remote for it to work: you can use the controller. (Granted it's not great, but you seem to think the remote is a necessity.) As for it overheating, my sister and her husband have used their PS2 as their sole DVD player for about 2 years and have never had any problems at all, and this is even with daily use for things like the season-set DVDs (like Buffy).

I can't understand how people can compare it to a PC: it's like setting a motorcycle and a sedan side-by-side and figuring out which is better. (Or some similar comparison. ^_^) Personally, if I can find one for under $100 I'd be tempted for console-only games like FFX (and XI, possibly), TekkenTag (my girlfriend loves that one), etc.

It is tempting...
