News Comments > ARMA II Operation Arrowhead Announced
10. Re: ARMA II Operation Arrowhead Announced Aug 13, 2009, 13:59 Muscular Beaver
 
Looks like people here never played Resistance. Resistance was an expansion, but it fixed so many bugs that OFP was finally 100% enjoyable. So maybe you guys will notice that making an expansion doesnt mean that you dont keep fixing things. People should really know BIS by now...

No DRM, no DLC and awesome support. One of the last few true PC developers left, even though they dont have lots of money and manpower, they are still trying their best.
Cant wait for this expansion. Hopefully it wont be the last and hopefully one of them can top Resistance. Would be cool to get a graphics update in a few years, just like in Resistance. Though, I dont really know what you could improve in that aspect.

Its prolly going to be very good at the start, but I fear that it will be "balanced" to death like the first part.

ROFL. This game is by far the best PC game for quite some time IMO. It actually deserves the title PC game. The servers are frequented very well and there is no fucking sign whatsoever that this game is dead or whatever.

Gotta love those "I dont play it, so it must be dead and bad" comments. Pure ignorance and arrogance. Thanks for letting us know.

Haha UO was awesome. I remember being stripped clean by thieves while standing at the bank, PKed until I had no equipment left to put on, killed by guards for defending myself and one time when I went to my girlfriend for a few days and came back my fucking house was gone and all my items lay on the ground, mostly already picked up by passing people.

Still, I loved that game. In a lot of aspects the freedom and possibilities are still unsurpassed.

Never thought I would say it, but I agree with you Verno.

I notice on me and my friends when we play an MMO, we wont ever buy or play any other game while we still have fun with that MMO.
I actually missed quite a few good games in the last 5 years because of that and I am still trying to find all of them.

In January [2008], Blizzard said it had more than 2 million subscribers in Europe, 2.5 million in North America and approximately 5.5 million in Asia.

http://www.ibtimes.com/articles/20081223/world-warcraft.htm
They sold 8.6 million and only 2.5-3.5 million still play?

1. take a course on corparate finance
2. check the 5y stock performance on any large game company
i.e
http://finance.yahoo.com/echarts?s=ERTS#symbol=ERTS;range=5y
http://finance.yahoo.com/echarts?s=UBI.PA#symbol=UBI.PA;range=5y

I honestly dont think publishers are that stupid to not see that copy protections dont do shit (except keeping the redneck boy without Internet in Oklahoma from copying his friends DVD.
Its the investors that need to be calmed with something like that. I think most publishers have a huge fear that investors and shareholder could jump off when they would all of the sudden announce that they dont protect their games anymore.

Nobody wants arty games anymore, because nobody remembers how awesome they can be.
I actually wanted to be a game developer some time ago, but honestly, right now I cant really imagine being creative with such restrictions. It would probably be like hell dreaming about the perfect game and then suddenly getting a hammer on the head by the publisher.

19. Re: ARMA II Diary Movies Jul 27, 2009, 10:28 Muscular Beaver
 
I played single player and will again if they release an expansion or some good player made missions will be released.
But right now only multiplayer and the mission editor are all I need.

I saw some bugs, but after 1.02 most of them are gone and they were never really severe before that (the worst was that I had to reload or restart a mission because, as in ArmA and OFP, some script messed up or an AI didnt take the route that he was probably supposed to take. Some of them were also caused by me because for example I thought the AI wouldnt be that smart (they can also hear and communicate with each other and dont always stand there around the corner and wait for you to shoot em).
Most of those bugs actually reminded me of other games that people claim to be polished. So, I really dont see what the fuss is all about.

Of course its not polished well, but seriously, how many that complex games have you played in the recent past? Developed by such a small developer?
Normally I am a perfectionist, but here I cant understand at all why so many people whine about it. I guess they never played OFP or ArmA and never liked those either. ArmA 2 is actually far more polished than OFP or ArmA were at their release. So to say that they didnt learn is nothing more than ignorant bashing. As I said before in some thread, people seem to be too used to dumbed down console ports with overly simple controls, AI that is completely predictable and then expect all that from a simulator like ArmA2. I remember one guy from my last LAN that instantly uninstalled it after being shot in the back while sprinting over a field without cover. His exact words were "WTF this shit game is cheating".
One of them even whined about the random aspects the game had. He failed one mission and then tried to outflank the AIs that killed him before, but they were randomly placed and were at a different position than last time and he died again to them because he tried to play this game like a generic shooter. God was he mad at the game for that...

Arma2 is what.. the 3rd iteration of the same product, on the same code base - by now it should be rock solid.

More ignorance. It was rewritten and only parts were imported, and if you ever had something to do with software, you would know that even importing parts of old software and use it in new versions can be a disaster and needs much work to run properly.

This game is really awesome. IMO the best game since 2 years. Actually more because I finally found a game again that I can play regularly in multiplayer.
The bugs are overhyped and that "argument" is really getting old...

News Comments > Diablo II Resolution/Ratio Mod
7. Re: Diablo II Resolution/Ratio Mod Jul 24, 2009, 07:47 Muscular Beaver
 
Diabo 1 & 2 were all about the mood and story for me. They were far too simple to keep me playing just because of the gameplay. Thats why I never liked Titan Quest or Sacred - their stories and atmospheres were crap. But on the other hand I loved Dungeon Siege because its graphics & sounds were extremely moody and the maps very well made, even though the story was almost non-existent.

IIRC, you can only use the resolutions of the BG2 engine. I think it was a maximum of 1600x1200 with no widescreen resolutions available. But in this mod I could choose up to 1920x1200. However, I get weird artifacts on the screen with such high resolutions. 1600x900 worked, well though. More than good enough for me.

Wow, that looks really nice. Cant believe a 9 year old 2D engine can still look that awesome. No 3D engine that old can reach it even remotely, no matter which mod.
A shame that they use a 3D engine for D3 which already looks like its 5 years old.

Im going to reinstall D2 now.

Have you ever actually read the WoW lore or know any of it? It's far more interesting than Diablo by far..

I read it more than enough times and its a fucking joke. So many childish story moments, for example when Arthas turns into the Lich King because he wants revenge at all costs. Reminds me of comic book stories without any logic or dramatically overdone human emotions. The whole Warcraft setting isnt really made for a good story.
However, their intro movies are fucking awesome and you could actually think that the games would reach that level when you first see them, but the games dont even come close to the awesomeness of their movies. The only games that came close to their intros and cutscenes were Diablo 1 & 2. And that was Blizzard Norths accomplishment (completely different development team than warcraft and starcraft). Go figure.

Yeah, its really superior to the mature and far more realistic Diablo setting and story (have you actually read the Diablo story that came with the first game and the novels?)...
