News Comments > Strife Open Beta

Man, so disappointed. Strife was a pretty cool game. A sequel or re-imagining or something would be neat - definitely way better than yet another MOBA.

Well there goes all the hope and dreams for the Freelancer remake.

By "Freelancer" I assume you mean "Freespace"? And it doesn't need a remake (the open source community has basically taken care of that) - it needs a third game, damnit!

Still, this is awesome.

No denying they have talented artists working for them but I would rather see extremely crude graphics with proof of concept that they've overcome the technical limitations that usually face developers when they try to do multi-crew vehicles over an internet connection, the sync issues alone usually makes everything so jittery and laggy you can't even move.

Ask and ye shall receive:

This was something else shown at Gamescom. It still looks early and incomplete, but seemed to be working pretty well from my perspective. As far as I can tell, they do have multi-crew functionality in and working in a pretty smooth manner with multiple players in a combat environment.

Are the combat physics improved in this? I liked the ultra-modular ship customization in GalCiv2 until I realized that all weapon effects pretty much spawned from the center of the ship model no matter what, and your designs didn't really matter anyways (only the actual modules you put on). I was hoping to see articulating turrets launching individual projectiles, ship damage states, and stuff like that; have some actual detail to the battles.

looks cool but also a one and done play through, every time I play a coop game like this the rest of the party wants to treat it like a speedrun.

I think you're playing with the wrong kind people. When I played the original we had stupid amounts of fun in co-op and took our time through the game - I'm looking forward to this new one.

Can't wait for this - Dead Rising 2's co-op was insanely fun and hilarious at LAN parties. I don't have an Xbox One so we've been waiting eagerly for the PC version of this to come out.

The original was the best. I'm so attached to it I rebuilt the entire game following the Steam re-release.

That's freaking awesome - I loved the original AvP. Thanks for the link! Checking this out.

Since the coop doesn't do the story missions, that's kind of a wasted effort, shame.

Are you serious? What a god damned waste - I was looking forward to setting up with my friend at a LAN party and blowing through the whole game with him, but it sounds like that won't be possible. What the hell's the point then?

so, how far has the multi player part of the Arena Commander DFM been? Have their been many people trying/playing it?

I'd love to know how good the netcode is, being that was why we where told it was delayed way back around Christmas.

It works about as good as Elite: Dangerous did for it's initial alpha release. As in, lots of weirdness and crashes, but shows lots of potential.

Sweet! I like, at least conceptually. But, it being squad-based and all.. will it have co-op?

Co-op would be freaking awesome with the diverse set of skills / talents these games usually have - having a couple of players working together, complementing each other's abilities would be awesome. I've always wanted co-op out of the Deus Ex games.

But that's assuming this is something they'd go for.

Consolitis also prevents click-dragging or proper key-rebinding.

Wat. No - DX:HR absolutely allows you to rebind your keyboard keys.

And it absolutely does have drag-and-drop inventory management.

Are you referring to Deus Ex: The Fall instead (which does indeed have such limitations and is universally acclaimed as terrible)? Because that's a VERY different game than Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

Yay Spintires! Co-operative multiplayer in it was hilarious to play over the weekend - it's a surprisingly fun game.

Nuts, Carmack was pretty much the only reason I still paid any attention at all to QuakeCon.

26. Re: Elite: Dangerous E3 Trailer Jun 11, 2014, 15:51 Parias
 
Yeah, I'll admit too that I'm actually looking forward to Star Citizen a bit more just because it'll have a singleplayer, Wing Commander-styled campaign that I can play co-op with my friends (or so they promise). I have a hard time playing games over the long term if there's no major underlying purpose to drive me forward.

But you know what? I think Elite: Dangerous will still be cool and fun - enough so that I paid full amount for alpha access. I still feel E:D will have a lot to bring to the table, and I'm going to thoroughly enjoy having both it and SC on the market -- just for different reasons.

Far Cry 3 had co-op as well, but it was a separate part of the game. Unless they specifically say "Campaign Co-op", I will believe it's a bullshit side-game. SO many games tossed out "co-op!" on the package, only to find it meant something different from expected.

The FC4 trailer specifically says that it's drop-in co-op, and what it does is just deactivate the single player/campaign missions, but everything else is open. So the fortresses, hunts, etc. and all that stuff counts towards your completion.

More interesting is the news that, apparently, on the PS4, you can co-op FC4 with people who don't own the game.

That sounds kinda terrible actually. When I play proper campaign co-op games, I head over to my friend's place and we blow through the entire campaign together to enjoy the story, scripted events, etc.

If all that stuff is turned off in FC4, what's the point?

I loved Battlezone I and II myself. Indeed there has been nothing to replace it thus far, but it something did, or if they even made Battlezone III, everyone would think it was crap and the original was better. The market today is saturated and there's always the "sequel sucks" psychology.

It's a bit of a different setting, but Hostile Waters: Antaeus Rising is the same sort of RTS / action game mix, with roughly the same kind of direct-ordering system for bossing your units around (or directly going into the action yourself).

It's also got a half-decent story to boot (narrated by Tom Baker!) and is worth a look if you were a Battlezone fan.

My video review is going up Friday (release day). It will be quite positive.

Can you give us any advance details on the co-op play? This is what I've been waiting to hear about for the game.
