News Comments > More WoW In-Game Cutscenes
10. Re: More WoW In-Game Cutscenes Dec 4, 2009, 12:56 Muscular Beaver
 
These ingame cinematics are a joke. When I saw the Wrathgate one, the first thought was "WTF, why so cheap??? where did all my money go??? in some cheap in-game graphics cutscene like you see em everywhere on youtube???".

It was really bad. Before that one, Blizzard was well known for fantasic breathtaking cutscenes (I always wanted them to make an animated motion picture), but this one really disappointed me in many different ways and made me lose even more respect for Blizzard.

News Comments > ARMA 2 Interview
18. Re: ARMA 2 Interview Dec 1, 2009, 17:23 Muscular Beaver
 
I really wanted to like this game, but after a while it has a few large flaws that keep me from playing it.

The biggest one is the vegetation interfering with gameplay. You simply cant see whats going on around you because everywhere bushes or trees block the view. But if you turn the details down, the game looks awful. So what should you do? I tried it on full detail, but only died every second. Why? because on top of this issue the AI can see through most vegetation (especially the ones on the ground or fallen trees). You know, when I crawl on the ground through pretty high grasses, I simply dont think anyone should see me. But the AI can. To them the grass simply doesnt exist. So they see you very well.

I tried some multiplayer mission where the grass is deactivated (most have that as default anyways since people know how fucking unfair it is) and it was fun for a while, but you know something is missing. And the AI can still see through leaves and if you fired 1 shot, everyone knows where you are and even disembarked tank crew will snipe you from 300 m away with a single bullet in the head with their shortened AKs.

If thats simulation, I sure am happy that I can choose to not play it.
I am a huge realism fan, but this is clearly over the top. Tanks have become pretty useless now too since they get destroyed far easier than in OFP or ArmA1. In OFP you could fire 6 LAW on a M1A1 and then it was toast. In ArmA 2 its 2, then youre either dead or you cant fire or move anymore. Yes, in OFP it was possible with a very well placed shot to disable a tanks main gun, but in ArmA 2 you dont need to show skills like that anymore. 2 shots and its gone. No point in picking up armor in the first place anymore. And Thats also why these vehicles are always deserted on multiplayer maps.

Oh and the "island" is far, far smaller than the huge and many islands in OFP. Its pretty, but it gets old quick. After a few rounds of Domination you have seen it all.

there are more small reasons that drive me nuts in the sum, but Im tired and want to watch a movie.

13. Re: World of Warcraft Battle.net Deadlin Nov 11, 2009, 14:34 Muscular Beaver
 
Yeah I am probably too sensitive to such problems. As I said, it isnt really a problem. The service still works, but for me and others its noticeably slower than before the merge, especially in the account management. Log in in-game takes about 2-3 secs longer than before. account management about 5-10 secs longer.

Oh and btw, I didnt wait until the last day. It was about 2 weeks ago, maybe more. My friend and his wife merged theirs months ago, but he also instantly said that it takes longer to log in now because I asked him about how it works.

But I guess I am really extremely stupid to expect good service from Blizzard. I should put on the blinders like you guys.

So you subscribe to the WoW Player mantra of "If I have a problem, and millions of others don't, it's still Blizzard's fault."

Weird that its reported all over the forums then, if I am the only then. Also WG lag is nonexistent I guess, or still servers who have queues and crash regularly.

Ignorance is bliss, huh?
"If I dont see it, its not there"

Alright, Im sorry, I have insulted your deity.




Its no problem of the firewall. That was already mentioned by the wannabe support that Blizzard gives.

Its not really a huge problem, but its obvious that its slower now than before.

Since I merged it, about 2 weeks ago, I noticed that logging in the game takes a bit longer, and also logging in Account Management takes extremely long. It was bad before, but today I got extremely mad because every click took ages.

Maybe some day Blizzard will learn to get hardware and bandwidth thats enough to provide a seamless service.

...

Maybe not...

Of course you can still get them here. There are many shops who import games like that. You just have to be 18, or have someone whos 18 to buy it for you.

Sadly, Computer Bild is part of one of the biggest publisher in Germany and doesnt really have to fear consequnces if they turned something like that down. So I highly doubt smaller ones would have turned them down because they would fear to no longer receive review samples in time or wont get any more interviews, etc.

Use the classes of EQ1, innovative (not WoW-innovative) gameplay, updated graphics (EQ2 was the best looking MMO for a very long time), full voice over and I am hooked.
EQ2 gameplay was far too different from EQ1 and the classes were all alike.

At least 10 I would guess. But that also shows why developers choose DLC over normal expansions. Makes milking much easier and more effective.

14. Re: Mass Effect 2 DLC Plans Nov 3, 2009, 06:17 Muscular Beaver
 
Agreed. If DLCs do anything, then its that I dont buy games at release that are planned being DLC-infected. I rather play my game as a whole or buy a real expansion, than play a game that I can no longer identify with 1 hour every 6 months.

I'll wait until they are in the bargain bin.

News Comments > WoW Dungeon System Plans

?
PuGs have vastly improved since WotLK. Well they probably didnt, but the instances got a lot easier so even the idiots can complete them now without problems. And if you still have problems, roll a healer. Its the only class with the best possibilities to turn a crap group into a good one.

I kinda like the idea since I always spend at least 30 mins to find a group (most of the time 2+ hours). Maybe then I can finally run a dungeon when I want to.

I just hope they thought about the possible griefing.

Wait until you get to the ending. I won't spoil it, only to say that it is epic.

Indeed its epic. Epic quickly reached. Unless you are that desperate and and do every single side mission (if youre lucky) before starting the final mission. I tried that once and it felt like a MMO, because everything was the same.
I was unlucky (or lucky?) enough to just do all the main missions after another without being aware of it that that would be the whole game. I always thought "uh, this looks awfully like its going to end soon, but I doubt BioWare would be that stupid to not link side missions with the main story and make this game end after a few hours".
Yeah well, after 2 more hours it was over and I was incredibly annoyed and sad because it had LOTS of potential.
