News Comments > Ships Ahoy - Lost Planet 3
7. Re: Ships Ahoy - Lost Planet 3 Aug 27, 2013, 23:37 Parias
 
I'm actually enjoying this a lot. I was expecting a linear shoot-em-up but the game's actually quite a bit more open-ended then I thought it would be. They also took a WAY different approach to the plot and dialogue - the story is actually comprehensible now. I'm crushed by the lack of co-op play (which basically sold Lost Planet 2), but the singleplayer component is way better.

I like the rig mechanic too - I'm sort of baffled at why you need to be nearby your rig get an ammo counter (the other things I can understand, but why ammo?), but they otherwise got the giant robot feel down just right for my liking.

Edit: Just realized it's only for detailed ammo tracking - even when you're away from your rig, a (small) gauge on your crosshair still shows your overall ammo, so there's that.

Ditto - no more reason to put it off. Not at this pricing.

I never tried the Uprising expansion for Red Alert 3.. was it any good? I skipped over it because I heard it didn't have the campaign co-op play (which was what really sold me on the RA3 core game).

although RA3 was pretty darn fun.

Really? I didn't care for it all that much. It wasn't awful or anything, but I would rate 2 much higher.

RA3 was great purely for the co-op nature of the campaign, and the hilarious cutscenes. I agree that RA2 offered a superior experience overall, but RA3's full campaign co-op is what's kept me coming back to it time and time again.

If you haven't played Evil Genius yet, you really should. It's basically Dungeon Keeper meets Austin Powers.

Good thing bcus XRebirth and Star Citizen would rape that game.

This is a horrible post and you should feel bad.

Why can't we enjoy all three games? This mentality is why I loathe the CoD/Halo communities.

The problem with multiplayer is that it's more work... More work on multiplayer means less features. Also, making a game work in multiplayer can negatively affect the gameplay and prevent some features. I for one think that single player games should stay single player and multiplayer games should stay multiplayer.

Now this I can understand - thank you. Doesn't stop me from wishing for it though... I would easily buy one of the X games twice if it meant I could play co-operatively with a friend.

The reason the community is against multiplayer is that X is very much a game about ownership. A lot of players build massive complexes in space that take dozens, if not hundreds, of hours to set up and get their trade routes optimized.

Playing mp would mean some shitheel can come into your universe and blow up all your shit.

I wouldn't want to play online against random pubbies - I'm just talking about putting private LAN play into the game so we can play it when I take my PC over to my buddy's place every weekend. We've have more than enough to do co-operatively in an NPC-filled universe. Is this really the main reason the community is so against the concept?

I think this could be the X game Ive been waiting for... glad its finally here. The only thing it seems to be missing is the ability to play co-op.

Yeah - for some bizarre reason the community is vehemently against any kind of multiplayer in the X-Universe games. Not sure why as being able to team up with a friend in the prior games would have been totally awesome. You wouldn't have to change much of the gameplay - just give me and my friend the same persistent universe to tromp around in so I could sit on the bridge of my capital ship and bark orders while my friend launches in a fighter wing and zips around, or things like that...

Sigh, guess I'll have to wait until Star Citizen.

I was a little dissapointed to follow a freighter through a jump gate and not see it on the other side, so some things are being spawned on the fly...

Really? It should be tracking them between sectors - each NPC ship should be persistent. Unless that was a limitation of the first X game I've forgotten about.

One thing to be leery about is that the Max Payne 3 MP was/is horrid......

Horrid in a technical sense, or a gameplay sense?

You can't compare OR to a graphics card.

A better comparison would be trackIR. When I got my trackIR 5 years ago I thought it was amazing. But eventually I stopped using it because..I had to wear a cap to play games..it made movement slower etc. Became bit of a chore. I will always acknowledge how good trackIR is, but to be honest I hardly actually used it.

Do you not play many flight sims? I find DCS: A-10 basically unplayable without my TrackIR (now that I've spent enough time with it).

I remember old Strife FPS game, but I didn't like it.

I didn't like the demo either. It felt more like a Doom mod to me. But maybe I just wasn't ready for rpg in my fps? Any of the opengl doom ports support Strife?

Apparently: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EUXnoux4JMQ

Wasn't their an FPS in development way back when (mid nineties) that was going to be called "Strife?" Not that this has anything to do with anything here, but the name triggered that memory and I can't place it.

Doom engine based. It was released. It may or may not have had RPG elements. No one bought it.

If by "No one" you mean "people who enjoyed awesome games".

Came into this thread expecting a remake of the classic Strife FPS and was disappointed. =\ Not that I lose sleep thinking the world NEEDS such a thing, but.... I was expecting something new sharing the same name to be more than a MOBA.

I was seriously considering getting one for DCS, but currently DCS doesnt support it 'officialy' and there is the thing about fidelity. Im not sure that the detail is high enough to spot bogeys at any reasonable distance and to discern the different avionics instruments without zoom. Right now Im playing DCS @ 1080p with a 23' monitor and I still have to use quite a bit of zoom every now and again. I guess Im going to wait for the commercial version.

Is there word yet on if DCS will ever end up getting "official" OR support?

I love the idea of Arma, but I don't like the missions. I want a game like Hidden and Dangerous. It had awesome missions. Go to a village and kill enemies isn't a mission...

Heh, Hidden & Dangerous was a lot of fun, and had some awesome campaign co-op back in the day. I agree - a lot of the mini-missions in the Arma aren't entirely appealing to me either; I'd rather have a larger-scale campaign to play with.

Which of course is still coming for this game soon after launch for this game, but I hear the campaign won't have a co-op mode? That's a big bummer.

I never felt Half-Life 2 was overrated, but I also loved the hell out of the story. I'd love to see Half-Life 3 just because I've rarely seen other games that can immerse me so well in the experience.

The save system still kind of sucks... But in the snes remake mod you basically get a free autosave on every map transition, so the lack of a proper save can be easily worked around. Almost every limitation in the engine looks like it can be worked around in mods, which is a great sign.

When are they going to fix that anyway? Having to replay 30 minutes of content because of a lucky shot that killed me just destroys any kind of immersion / fun I have. I only keep going back to it because it's an awesome game otherwise - manual saving would sure be nice though.
