As soon as I heard the game was about six hours or less... not to including the Co-Op... I canceled my pre-order.

These types of corperations and their dealings have destroyed the American economy by screwing over the little guy with their douchebaggery. They screw everyone in their path all in the name of greed.

Have you been working for Corporate America too? After you work for a corporation for more than a year you start to realize that greed is the driving factor for ever single thing they do... nothing else matters.

LOL, thats exactly what I said to a friend earlier today. In fact as I recall, didn't new line claim they didn't owe anything because the money was supposed to be a percentage of the net, and they said they didn't make any net money on the LotR trilogy? (aka hollywood math, kinda like music studio math)

Were I work (for the Evil Empire) we call that fuzzy math. Meaning they can spin the numbers to mean whatever it is they want them to mean. Even if it make no sense what so ever. For example... I am graded on ten different factors to determine what my over-all productivity is. Half of those factors are controlled by the company. It's the same reason why the Union had the team award removed from the contract because the company would constantly spin the info and short us on our bonus. The less money they give to employees the more money they get to keep... greed is good, if you're already filthy rich.

Nothing new here. And I agree it's the greed of the filthy rich that has ruined this country and our economy. From the corruption in our government to the CEOs running these douchebag companies.

Yeah, it was like beta testing the original Ultima Online. They mailed you a CD. Crazy how far we beta testers have come, right? When I beta tested Age of Conan they made us download pretty much the entire game client each week. Instead of just patches. If I remember right it was over 29GB.

After hearing a reviewer stating that the single player game for Splinter Cell Conviction is just over five hours long... I now know why they are really hyping the beta access codes package in with the discs.

Even with the Co-Op game adding several more hours of game play it's a no sale for me and most of the friends I have spoke with. Sad that under ten hours is now the norm.

I agree, C1 and C2 were better than C3 though C3 had a lot of good ideas gone horribly wrong. I can't speak for Strike Force but from looking at the reviews I didn't miss much.

http://www.metacritic.com/games/platforms/pc/commandosstrikeforce#usercomments

What I'd like to see them do is take C4 even further... something more toward the game-play in Silent Storm but improve on the formula even more. I know there isn't a huge market for that so the chances are about the same as a snowball in Hell. Either way since we are just wishing here I figured I would throw in my two cents.

Glad to see so many of you are so open minded as to play indie games... yet you must admit it's very bizarre that some are also so close minded as not to except someone else's opinion concern a game. Strange crowd here at times.

Maybe I'm just getting old and didn't smell the blood in the water?

Mag, sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. As far as I can see the downloads and activations are not a problem. You will need to deactivate copies before building a new system or reinstalling your OS I would assume. Though I just migrated from Window 7 RC to Windows 7 Professional and the game (Dragon Age) was on a separate partition and works fine from either copy last I checked.

You can even register your DVD keys and download a copy from EAs site if you break or lose the disc. Not bad as far as I'm concerned. Not that most of us will use the feature.

I gave ATi several tries over the years. The last one was returned for the very same reason it had been years since my last attempt at happiness with an ATi card... driver support is still spotty at best. Far fewer issues with Nvidia cards over the years. And that is the only reason I still buy Nvidia over ATi.

I may give them another try when I build my next system but I'll have to buy someplace local that accepts returns.

What is ironic about switching to a lesser game rig?

LoL, that's one of those d'uh! comments, isn't it? The whole situation is ironic. What you just stated included. Plus with all the PC release issues currently being complained about I figured it couldn't be more evident. I won't agrue with you that the PC is the better gaming rig. It is. Most of the time.

News Comments > More PC BC2 Players Than on Either Console
21. Re: More PC BC2 Players Than on Either Console Mar 6, 2010, 22:58 Paranoid Jack
 
"I don't really like this game, maybe its the beta gameplay that jaded my view of it but it feels too arcade for my taste."
There is a HardCore mode at least on the PS3 version I have and it's less arcade more like old school PC BF games.

"I didn't say the computer would go away.. but the companies out there that make their bread and butter on aftermarket parts.
You have to think pretty deep here.. if there's no gaming market driving the need for the latest technology.. that trickle down effect cuts deep."

If you asked me I'd say it's already happened. I have a PC I built going on three years ago with an almost two year old video card and it's the recommended system for BFBC2 PC? Unless they changed it since I bought and canceled my Steam pre-order.

It's so ironic that I have gone from being a hardcore PC gamer to mainly a PS3 gamer. I logged hundreds of hours of play on every BF game until 2142 (which I skipped) on the PC. I bought BFBC for the XBox 360 and now have BFBC2 for the PS3. I must say it is an awesome game. Not perfect. There are still the persistent Dice bugs in there but overall it reminds me of all those hours of fun playing on the PC years back. But there aren't any server issues besides the EA store. I haven't got all my pre-order unlocks. Just missing the one but doubt it will make any difference now since I've unlocked a load of weapons already. It's also reassuring to know the odds of hackers ruining the online game on the PS3 are slim to none compared to the PC which is almost a given.

I remember on the PC the first weeks being the best and after that the public servers would be over run with morons and their downloaded skills. I hope that doesn't happen with this one. If I do get a copy it will be via Steam. Those who have it let us know how the PB and VAC are working in the next week or so when the hacks start to take over.

How do you cancel a pre-order. I know somebody posted the info on Blue's several weeks or months back. I've been trying to find their contact number and after half an hour of searching their site I can't find any number to call them at.

The beta for MAG was the first console FPS I've played since the N64 days. It took a few hours to get good with the controller but after that I was loving it. Won't be at the mid-night sale but I'll be playing for several hours tomorrow night no doubt.

I also pre-ordered BBC2 on Steam. There is an early access period but can you cancel if the beta gives you a bad feeling? Not sure I'll love it but it looks damned fun.

News Comments > Mass Effect 2 and MAG Midnight Madness
21. Re: Mass Effect 2 and MAG Midnight Madness Jan 23, 2010, 00:22 Paranoid Jack
 
I enjoyed the MAG beta. It's the best online tactical shooters I've played in a long time. One of the best console shooter if you ask me. As far as the Penny Arcade comic they should have added some bit about a noob... within a squad of noobs. Maybe then it would have been funny? And as far as the IGN blurb... your so called "preview" of the beta... I'd say that you're stretching the meaning of preview there. The article or blurb sounds more like the original writer was "running and gunning" as he described not actually playing the game the way it was designed to be played. And the other three editors were just brain dead. Sure you can run around like Rambo shooting everyone and everything... including your teammates... or knifing them in the back like the one idiot was attempting to do while reloading his weapon... you just won't enjoy the game as much if you're going to play it like a retard. Nor will you earn as many points at the end of the round. If you're not vote kicked... which you most likely will be. Sorry, but it sounds like all those lamers... I'm mean Editors... who wrote that article need to learn how to form an objective opinion before writing about games since they are attempting it as a career. Maybe even spend some time learning the game since it sounds like they couldn't manage that either.

If you're running twenty minutes to get to an objective in MAG you are lost and should go back to the CoD type games. The game is not perfect but it is far better than your average console shooter and requires the use of ones brain at times... I know hard to believe a shooter that requires a bit of thought. But then from the statements in that article/blurb and from the gameplay exhibited during the beta I doubt most people are up to the task. Maybe it is destine to fail... for all those who can't muster a few brain cells or join a Clan. We shall see soon enough.

I was bored to death from the beginning. I gave it four hours of play before going to bed and now have no desire to ever boot it up again. Shocking how blah the whole thing felt.
