News Comments > Blizzard on the Business of Battle.net
5. Re: Blizzard on the Business of Battle.net Aug 31, 2009, 13:37 Muscular Beaver
 
I have only positive things to say about Battle.net. I like the cross-game communication system letting you talk to friends in Diablo 3 from WOW, or StarCraft 2. You say "hi!" from WOW to your friend in Diablo 3. Your friend replies, "Hey man! I need help with this boss. Want to help?" You reply "Sure!" and you switch over to your friend's location. Very cool stuff.

OMG! Youre right! I couldnt do that with [enter random IM name here]!!!
Now I can finally uninstall that stupid [enter random IM name here]!!!
Oh wait, I have friends outside of Blizzard games, too. Woot, who cares, I like having a bazillion IMs on my PC.

Oh, Im sorry.
Next time Ill remember to add the context a few times just for you.
But yeah you still can do that. Black against a black sky is kinda what the predator does, Verno. But if Arnold had a radar, the Predator would have been dead meat in the first few mins of the movie. Now, that wouldnt have been nice, would it?

Not too long ago NATO was bombing Serbia into submission, when apparently a random AA shell downed a F-117 Stealth Fighter

An AA shell? It was a missile. And It wasnt random at all. The "fighter" was located through very long radar wavelengths (normally obsolete since the 60s).
Stealth technology doesnt make you completely invisible.

But I am getting your point.

Even if he killed that helicopter with an M249, if helicopters get shot down, the rotors dont suddenly stop from one second to another in the air. Much less if the pilot is sniped.

and then account for inflation, we should be paying 90 dollars a game or so right now (what Europe and other areas are paying actually).

We dont pay that much here... yet. We pay like $60-70.

Apparently we have DangerDog the famous psychic visiting the website. He can gaze into his crystal ball and make uninformed guesses that are right 42% of the time.

You know, there was recently something called Gamescom where they showed the game. Even if youve only seen the videos, you should have noticed that this wont even nearly be the promised military sim. Maybe, just maybe, it will be a shallow tactical shooter, if they work really hard in the last month before release.

Ones for sure already: It will be the typical lackluster console port.
But even for a console game it looked really bad.

News Comments > BioWare: Dragon Age Lasts Over 120 Hours
20. Re: BioWare: Dragon Age Lasts Over 120 Hours Aug 25, 2009, 16:35 Muscular Beaver
 
NO ONE goes all 120 hours, there isn't a game around that can keep you interested for 120 hours unless its an MMO.

Im pretty sure I had almost that much in Baldur's Gate and it was nowhere near being boring.
Still I doubt that they will reach games like BG again. I am pretty sure, if the 120 hrs are really the case, then its probably lots of repeating crap.

How I wish PC MP gaming would have stopped right here.
Now we have bloatware from each and every publisher/developer. Blizzard being the newest...

It was so cool and easy to just start my ASE/GS3D/QTracker and choose the game I want to play and be on the chosen server 10 secs later...

The last one was "1 1/2 hours" and actually lasted only 30 mins. So this one will last 1 hour max.
Woohoo...

Seriously, if they do this kind of crap in ME2 (side missions all look the same and only DLC adds a few unique places to it), they can kiss my ass.

News Comments > EA VP: Germany Should Drop USK "Censorship"
22. Re: EA VP: Germany Should Drop USK Aug 25, 2009, 09:04 Muscular Beaver
 
If people dont react on actions (no matter if good or bad - because we learn from both, but especially from bad things) then the species will stagnate and die too.

You obviously dont understand that we need to analyze such things to understand them. Just looking at the result and the nearest cause and reacting to that might be good enough as a 3 year old child in the sand box or for the lion thats hungry and runs off to kill something, or a man that beats his wife because she didnt make him dinner in time, but surely not for a social and complex species like us as a whole.

Bad things are a part of this world, and we learn from them by analyzing them thoroughly. If we dont, they will repeat themselves over and over again. If we keep let that happen, we dont have the right to call us an intelligent and adaptive race.

Godwins law is thick in this thread.

Godwins law doesnt tell you if something is justified or not. Many Nazi comparisons are justified. By ignoring them completely with a childish "OMG OMG OMG Godwins law, losers!", youre only showing your own inability to think for yourself.

Mashiki Amiketo,
nice to see someone looking at things more objectively. We cant just blame the guy who started all this because bad things are bad. We also have to look at the causes that made him (and many others) do that.

News Comments > StarCraft II LAN Still a Possibility
29. Re: StarCraft II LAN Still a Possibility Aug 24, 2009, 06:00 Muscular Beaver
 
No, it didnt scale much (if at all) on Delta.
Crysis' AI really is horrible. Sure it was sometimes hard if you got flanked by a squad that you didnt notice in all that green, but all in all the AI was very bad. If I would see someone vanish right in front of me, I would just spray and pray. They didnt do that at all. They just kept going in your direction and waiting to get their head shot etc without even taking cover or suppressing fire on their way...
And if the helos really had IR, they would see you through leaves of trees and bushes. But they dont.
The AI was so bad that I actually never tried to use all the terrain for tactics, because I knew it would be overkill anyways.

Still I thought it was entertaining, albeit far too short.

Believe it or not, some people like Crysis and Mass Effect, because we don't feel the need to crucify everything solely because it's a console port or because it doesn't meet some nostalgia-filter-colored bias about how much better gaming supposedly was X number of years ago.

Oh, I DO know that there are lots of such people. But thats the problem, my friend. Thats the problem.
People like those drag down the quality of PC games. Crysis was far too short, didnt nearly use its potential and Mass Effect was an extremely dumbed down RPG and very justified called a typical console port. Even the levels and enemies all looked the same and it barely had 1/3 of the duration of KotoR (if you could actually keep playing all the side missions and didnt die of boredom while doing so).

If more people would criticize those points they would actually be fixed. But as along as there are people who swallow everything as shallow as a puddle, as long as it has a Blizzard, Bioware or Crytek tag, it will only get worse.
Its not nostalgia, as so many ignorants try to call it. Its fact that many, many game that are 10 years old have far more content, more challenging gameplay and still the same (if not better) gameplay than modern games.
Thats the sad part. If you look at games like Baldur's Gate and then think about games that were there 10 years before it, you wont come to the conclusion that there were better games.

Progress in PC games (gameplay and quality-wise) has halted. Its simply not getting any better. It actually got worse.

News Comments > Sell Your StarCraft II Maps
27. Re: Sell Your StarCraft II Maps Aug 23, 2009, 04:14 Muscular Beaver
 
Aside from all this bullshit, maps would be the least of all I would pay money for. Not because all of them arent worth it but because every time I download maps for RTS games, only like 5% are really worth keeping the thing on my hard drive. You simply cant judge if a map is good just by some screenshots.

I also read somewhere else that Blizzard is going to keep the majority of the money. Only a very small portion is going to the creators of the maps.
FU Blizzard.

Oh my, thanks for the laugh. If Blizzard games aren't good enough for you anymore, it's time to stop calling yourself a PC gamer and move on to other hobbies.

PC gaming is in a decline, if you havent noticed. And if you havent noticed the vast decline of Blizzard (guess you didnt play WoW and havent read many news lately), then I cant really do anything else to make you see it.
Ignorance is bliss, I guess. Seriously, I wish I was that ignorant.

So you'll put up with Live, Steam, and Social C, but Blizzard is not good enough for you? Man you're messed up.

Yes I am really messed up because I have a different taste than you.
I should really kill myself for not being on your "level".

So these are the super mega uber features that are so innovative and awesome that LAN becomes obsolete and everyone will only want to play over the Battlenet 2.0?

Stuff that was free before and now costs something and everyone is happy about it, while Blizzard is getting fees for every sold map?
Suuure... Unbelievable how audacious Blizzard has become since WoW...

Right now I have to battle with Social Club, Steam and Games for Windows Live to play certain games and you want me to use another one of those bloated POS?
Sorry, I (and my PC) wont deal with something like this again. Your games are not good enough anymore to warrant another of those annoy-wares, Blizztard. Not even if its implemented in every title.

Go release your games on the consoles if you want something like that.

Nice, another 30 mins of gameplay that makes me keep that game on my HD for ages and then just causes disappointment and makes me lose the connection to my char.

Oh wait, I already sold this pos DRM infested console port anyways.

I liked the differing RTSesque styles between Marines and Aliens...

I agree completely. Its a shame they are doing it this way.

But I guess it was due to balancing issues. The last versions of NS1 were horribly balanced.
On the other hand I doubt highly that they are going back to the game style that caused games to last for hours and marines really had to wait quite a while before they got upgrades and started to plow through aliens.
They are prolly getting upgrades very soon and start owning aliens right away, like in the later versions.
That would suck.

However, its nice to see that they stay close to the old art style. It was perfect already. Felt a bit like youre in the Alien universe, and still was very funny without taking away parts of the atmosphere.
