I would assume anyone that has played through FEAR would know for themselves. If all you've played is the demo I could understand how it wouldn't seem that great, the encounters in the demo are short, easy and not that interesting tactically.

True... true. I have only played the single player demo. And the multiplayer demo locked up my machine when I'd click the .exe so I have not tried it... The instability of the game, the environments, and the lack of nothing really innovative or new being offered has kept me from making the purchase.

I'm a big fan of Monolith and I've played almost all of their games. But I can't help but feel that, like Contract JACK, FEAR is a step backwards (when compared to NOLF and TRON) because FEAR is a pure shooter.

That said, the reviews and the internet buzz for FEAR have been great. So I've been keeping an eye on the title for a possible buy after Christmas.

I digress...

Anyway, I was really hoping you were referring to the multiplayer combat being better than the rest... I suppose the "weapon feel" can apply to the multiplayer aspect, but I really don't see how the weapons can feel better than Quake or Half-Life. The railgun and crossbow are so satisfying for me to kill with. Of course, this is a matter of opinion.

Still, I am intrigued by your post... what's your opinion of FEAR multiplayer, and how often do you play it?

I'm so bored with BF2 and it's lousy fucking weapons.

No but it's combat significantly raised the bar. Even Half-Life 2 and Far Cry have pretty substandard combat in comparison.

Enlighten me please. How is the combat better in FEAR when compared to the rest?

Yeah, well even the modding community is slowly moving over to F.E.A.R. Quake 4 was great but the expections for impovements and innovation aren't enough to keep the game alive.

Why? FEAR doesn't really offer any original gameplay either...

Not to mention, at this time Quake 4 has 1581 servers and 1023 players, compared to FEAR, with 339 servers and 360 players.

Yeah, that looks really promising for modders who have moved over to FEAR. /sarcasm

I play Q4... in short bursts it's fun. As is HL2DM which I've been playing with my co-workers.

When's Quake Wars coming out? I'm about sick of BF2...

Outstanding! That said, I'd like to see all of the weapons with improved accuracy. Still, maybe I'll play medic, support, sniper, and AT more often now!

Ray, the new Apop album is a limited edition... I dunno if it'll be released here either. Their distributor in the states is Metropolis records, so I'd keep an eye on that site. There is a single from the new album coming out soon...

Of course, the new album may come "out" in other places too.

BTW, I really dig fairlight children.

Are they really charging for HL2DM, or are they offering it for sale separately from the full game? I assume the latter... Especially since 2 of my co-workers just bought the full game via steam, and they've been playing HL2DM.

Meh, I fired up Tribes 2 the other day and there really wasn't anyone playing classic... The only servers that had players were also running mods I am not very familiar with... I just wanted to play classic.

Even though it wasn't a classic server, I miss the good old days of playing on Houston Vehicles.

I was thinking about installing T:V again... I doubt anyone plays it anymore though.

First of all, guns don't use "clips." Second, try firing from the prone position and in short bursts, you'll actually hit something then.

Hey look eveyone, it's Mr Guns and Ammo!

The CoF needs to be adjusted...

AA missiles are only good for teamkilling.

And if you play support well, then I am shocked! I never see these guys out on the field. I recently gave the role another shot and gave up after being killed several times.

Please read this forum and improve/adjust the cone of fire for all of the weapons! It doesn't have to be "realistic" just fun like the past BF games! No more fucking dice rolls, please!

I hate unloading an entire clip into some guys back as he jut stands there, and then he turns around only to kill me with one shot while I reload.

No one plays support because the gun fucking sucks! Again, adjust the CoF please!

I liked the full version. Nothing revolutionary, but fun enough.

Same here... I wish I liked the multi-player more though, it's kinda boring. Funny thing my frame rate sucks in multi-player but was very solid in single-player.

15. Re: Mods for me. Nov 23, 2005, 18:46 sc4r4b
 
The Tribes community bears responsibility for the way Vengeance came out. They brow beat the publisher/devs into slavishly listening to their wants/demands and what they got is exactly what they asked for, a horribly mediocre multiplayer game that bored the shit out of people after one week (funny how they all quietly disappeared since they didn't have a scapegoat this time around). The only saving grace was the single player campaign which the devs did a great job with.

I almost always agree with you, man. This is not one of those times.

The Tribes community did not ask for what was given. The majority of the community (TW) wanted Tribes 1 with better graphics. The rest like myself wanted a continuation of the Tribes franchise.

The single player game was alright... The multiplayer game was a disappointment. The maps sucked, the vehicles sucked, and the overall multiplayer game play was dumbed down. IMO thats the fault of the developers and not the tribes community.

Edit-
I'd like to say more as to why T:V failed other than "it sucked."

* Skiing was different from other Tribes games. I liked the speed but being the carving was non-existent.

* The maps were poor in that they didn't feel like Tribes maps, nor did they look like Tribes maps. They were aesthetic pleasing but the game play was lacking. We needed the terrain to to be less realistic and more like Tribes. Some of the maps were so small you could literally fly from one flag to the next...

* The bases were designed poorly. The heavies were able to lob mortars right into some of the open bases. Gone were the large interiors replaced with one room which had everything with-in range of a mooter explosion. Lame.

* Why remove the repair and health packs? Why?

* The choice of the unreal engine was a bad one as well... No more server side maps or endless terrain.

* V-Chat gone! This was one of the most innovative things I'd ever seen in multiplayer gaming... and they cut it out.

* The vehicles... this was a huge disappointment for me... No more bombing runs or dogfighting. And they were third person only. WTF? No wonder people called T:V an Unreal Mod.

I could go on...

Tribes 2 felt like a war so much was going on. T:V was a dumbed down and broken. That's why it failed.

11. Re: Mods for me. Nov 23, 2005, 17:46 sc4r4b
 
No one bought T:V and while I still think VU should have supported it (you release it, you support it period), that's why they dropped support for it. F.E.A.R. has sold more copies since launch I believe than T:V has to date.

No shit... but the fact is that more people were playing T:V multiplayer a month after it came out than are currently playing the FEAR MP a month after it's release...

T:V wasn't even finished, it came out at the wrong time, and VU just abandoned it in like the first month or two after the release because sales weren't what they expected right away. Maybe VU they hadn't rushed the game or if they had supported T:V it would have sold 100,000 copies. It was a decent game that could have been made great.

As of right now only The first Tribes game has 362 players vs. FEAR with 371 players... It doesn't look like they should even support FEAR MP, in my opinion...

They support this lackluster and unoriginal multiplayer game, yet they dropped support for T:V MP when there were more people playing it... Yeah, I am still upset about Tribes.

I like monolith, but VU can suck me.
