News Comments > Mass Effect Online?
7. Re: Mass Effect Online? Nov 18, 2010, 12:13 Parias
 
Echoing the sentiments here - I'm sure Mass Effect could make a decent MMO if done right, but if it came to one or the other I would much, much rather have the excellent, comprehensive, singleplayer story-driven experience the previous Mass Effect games have offered to a repetitive grind-a-thon MMO type game.

Infinity Ward's community manager said the PC version of Modern Warfare 2 sold "millions" and yet I never saw more than 100,000 players at once online with it.

Maybt they only played single-player? Or lost interest in MP within a day. I know I'd certainly fit into that category.

Ditto here, my only real interest in the game was the singleplayer campaign.

Speaking of which, has the option to enable animations in multiplayer been put in yet? I don't plan on really touching this until that's done.

I'm definitely sold - the focus Operation: Arrowhead had on a story-based coop mode made it terrifically fun - moreso than the original because each player got control over their own groups of soldiers. Hope this one turns out just as fun.

SOTS1 remains one of the most addictive games at our LAN parties (next to Men of War) so I was already sold at the announcement that SOTS2 was coming, but this really seals the deal. Finally, a space strategy game that will look as good as (if not better than) Nexus: The Jupiter Incident!

Indeed, it's astounding the support this game continues to receive - and it deserves it too.

At least this time around they're apparently offering online co-op play - being restricted to split-screen for the original was incredibly irritating.

Not selling out and giving into the masses by changing a turn based strategy game into an fps... ok.

Because seriously who plays turn based strategy games these days?

Sword of the Stars is an epic favorite at any LAN party I participate in.

News Comments > Sword of the Stars: Argos Navy Yard Patch
6. Re: Sword of the Stars Patch Jun 29, 2010, 12:35 Parias
 
The best part of the combat is how it's all physics-driven and such. Unlike games which just do invisible number crunching to determine if a shot will "hit" or not and how much damage it will do (i.e. Sins of a Solar Empire), things like projectile trajectories and locational damage are modeled accurately in SOTS. You can also tell your fleet to target specific parts of a ship (i.e. the turrets) and watch those components break apart when destroyed, and so on.

My only disappointment with the game is a lack of visual detail on the level Nexus: The Jupiter Incident had (visible ship nameplates, maneuvering thrusters, etc), but allegedly that's being looked at for the upcoming SOTS sequel.

Beyond that though it's awesome. My favorite memory is when I was attacking a planet with a bunch of Mass Driver-equipped ships and ended up knocking the enemy ships out of orbit and into the planet they were defending, simply because their engines couldn't compensate for the sheer amount of kinetic force my weapons were throwing at them.

Neat - does this mean it'll have co-op play?

Some of the best co-op gaming I've ever had has been from this series. Definitely a must-buy for me as well.

Agreed - the game itself is fantastic, and is something I'll likely play through again a few months or a year from now. I don't see myself booting it up again right away now that new DLC is out though.

The bullshit piles up so fast with these guys you need wings to stay above it. I categorically refuse to use any system where the choice of when, where, and how long I can use the product is out of my hands. Not to mention tracking how long and what I play and who knows what other snooping around to acquire more information on me to sell to marketing companies.
Says a guy who uses Steam. Steam also does everyone of these things, and yet you loved HL2 and Valve's other games which use Steam from your posts on this forum. What you really mean, hypocrite, is that you will only bend over and take it from Valve and not EA.

EA is just taking a page from Valve's playbook as most of its fanboys don't realize or admit that Steam uses DRM either.

Except that with Steam, you still have the option of playing a given game while offline - and it doesn't interrupt you if a disconnection event occurs during gameplay or do something dumb like annex all of your progress up to that point.

Not to mention that Valve hasn't randomly shut down authentication servers for certain games (i.e. Mercenaries 2), and has indicated they'll provide a method for continuing to be able to play their games should their authentication services be discontinued. Additionally, Valve (and the subsequent parties releasing their games under Steam) aren't beating around the bush trying to pretend their games don't have DRM.
