I thought that was just me. God, I loved TFC and I totally missed the life cycle of TF2 :(
There's still plenty of people playing, but it may be the wrong season. I personally haven't played in two months because of the glut of holiday game releases.

How the hell do you select your servers? I've heard of fake playercounts, but when I want to play but it's too early for my usual servers to be populated, I do a full server list refresh, sort by ping, and join the first one with more than 12 players on. Running into that problem, so consistently, for a month, that's just mind-boggling.

News Comments > Mirror's Edge 2 & Battlefield 3 Clues
12. Re: Mirror's Edge 2 & Battlefield 3 Clue Dec 2, 2009, 03:06 Zyrxil
 
Mirror's Edge didn't truly click for me until I got serious with the time trials. Before that, the single player was good, but it didn't require nearly as much precision and skill. But when each standing on the leaderboards are separated by hundreths of seconds, you really have to master the moves and watch ghost runs to learn tricks you never knew about, which in turn makes you feel as acrobatic as it's possible for a video game to make you feel.

Stranglehold 2? There doesn't seem to be that many choices when Hong Kong is in the equation.

It'll have to be pretty damn meaty, unlike the stuff that was included with the game but sold to people who bought used at ridiculous prices.

It's a reroll of the previous patch including 3 non-ingame related issues:

# fixed an issue with Vista and Windows 7 Game for Windows Explorer

# fixed an issue with Dragon Age and Windows Game Explorer

# updated Visual C runtime libraries

Those who pre-ordered in the UK before the worldwide launch have been given access to the game.

Nice change from the usual waiting for retail situation.

Anyhow, keep in mind that most of these people having terrible latency and stuff are probably running on terrible internet connections and barely meeting the minimum specs of the game, so it's somewhat understandable that they're going to have issues.

Do you even understand how P2P multiplayer works? Lag is caused by the host's connection, which you have no control over.

What it is, is extremely CPU dependent, while tons of people are on 5 year old Athlon X2s with a Geforce 260.

Regardless of performance issues and 'journalists' completely overhyping the quality and of writing of the original game, the two DLC episodes look really interesting. Proper $30 expansions instead of nickel and dimed crap. I really hope they're coming to PC.

It has limited scaling, e.g. minimum level scaled to and maximum level scaled to. BG2 also had this.

There are reports of the patch breaking the launcher (though a direct shortcut to daorigins.exe still works) because it was built using a newer version of MS VC++ 2005 libraries. Install up to date version from

Inter-esting Stuff! Apparently Germans hate MMOs, even with PC reigning supreme there.

I don't really can't think of a good excuse for bitching about microtransactions in a game for something that is entirely cosmetic.

No, the PS3 version was canceled, PC version confirmed as existing at same time.
