News Comments > Battlefield 3?
5. Hmmmmm Oct 10, 2007, 11:53 Ronin
 
The Good
1. 40 vs 40...insanity.
2. Recording and replay...awesome.
3. Auto-update...assuming they use it.

The BAD
1. No XP mentioned. Very very bad idea.
2. Battalions...more complication that will rarely get used right.
3. Did I mention that no XP is a bad idea?

The indifferent
1. Extra unlocks ala BF2142...I was fine without them in BF2, never played 2142. We'll see how it is.

I'm not holding much hope. I want it to work, I want a return to the awesomeness that was BF1942/Desert Combat. Does anyone else feel that stat-based games are kind of detracting from the fun? You end up concentrating on what awards you don't have and not on winning the game. who knows how many games were lost because someone HAD to get his expert mounted gun badge.

I don't like the console fps elements of it at all:
1. Autosave points
2. Action sequences where you have to press the directional buttons that correspond to what the onscreen display tells you to press. This is so incredibly hokey in this day and age to me.
3. Regenerating ammo.
4. It's totally linear and a corridor shooter at least in the demo.


Overon, I agree with all your points, and I'm going to add some of my own.

5. The whole thing suffers from consolitis, right down to the control scheme.
6. having to hold the button down for your powerup to work...sounds familiar...oh yeah, that's cause I had just been playing Twisted Metal Black on PS2. If you don't have a 9-button mouse, this forces you to use the keyboard for these actions, making it difficult to move (with 3 fingers on the movement keys already).
7. The developer splash screen was more frightening than the game itself.
8. I know games are striving to get rid of health meters, but how the hell am I supposed to know when I'm dying? Maybe I was too tired, but there was never any indication that I was being mortally wounded by the bad guys.

Please remake Undying...that game truly freaked me out. DOOM 3 was scarier than this game, exceedingly so (probably because you were alone). What little I played of Bioshock was scarier.

Thoroughly disapointed.

Thanks Dagok.

+1 for aging gamer. And I'm only 26. I guess getting married, owning a house, and having an actual career have accelerated this aging thing.

Will be buying the Orange Box and selling gifting my original HL2. Anybody know if the Orange Box HL2 has HL2 DM and CSS? (I still know some acronyms, dammit)

Is what I am.

When you say FF I think of Final Fantasy. But you seem to be talking about a shooter of some kind. Please clarify.

News Comments > Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars Demo Released
41. Re: Pretty good Sep 10, 2007, 16:43 Ronin
 
Yes, I know, Vista is teh suck...it's just my work computer, trying it out over lunch.

Turns out it was my secondary video card. Disabled that, and I was rolling.

Not terribly impressed so far...I guess I wasn't a huge fan of the original ET, and that's probably why. More of a Quake/BF2 guy (which makes no sense, I know). Must try it more.

Anybody else having problems with Vista? It shows the splash screen, that goes away, and then I get the Vista "Program has stopped working, searching for a solution" window. Every time. Tried rebooting, I know my drivers are recent (8800GTX).

The Advocate, from what I've heard, ProStreet will have be returning to the days of PU with its physics...which for many (in addition to the replays) was what made PU so fun.

Oh, BOO-F*CKING-HOO...she should be happy that she has a figure to be admired, and that she is found attractive. My wife struggles with her image sometimes, and when someone checks her out or flirts with her, it reaffirms what I tell her, and she's flattered.

You forgot the 1986 Toyota Corolla.

No, that was Blue's slip up on the post ;)...it should have read:

2006 Audi S4
1986 Toyota Corolla GTS AE86

Need for Speed: Grocery Grabber!

The Evo and M3 are grocery grabbers that compete with full blown sports cars. As I already mentioned, most of the Evo MR's competition costs twice as much.

10. not surprising. Jul 7, 2007, 13:48 Ronin
 
GTR - desirable
Cuda - unique, desirable, and memorable
RX7 - unique (turbo rotary) and desirable
Eclipse - ok, not so much
S4 - desirable
AE86 - memorable
EVO - desirable and unique (a sedan whose competition is sports cars that cost twice as much)
GTI - aspirational (long heritage)
M3 - desirable

You people are so FREAKING bitchy.

Yes, they're reusing cars...scream at them for using what works (but as mentioned, the GTR has never been in ANY game, and I think this is the first they're using the AE86)

Yes, we will get damage modeling. Some of the most detailed damage modeling in any racing game.

Optimaximal, note my list above...you many not agree, but that's the way it is for a lot of people...with the exception of myself, most car enthusiasts won't say good things about the Cuda and the RX7 in the same sentence. You seem to be the sort only impressed by foreign sports cars and super cars...this is only a partial list, there will be at least 8 super cars from what I've heard.

Hideaway, as mentioned, this is the first list...there will be more cars announced, including more muscle cars. And since the game is going to be about a full field of racing styles, (drag, circuit track, etc.) they better have more than just muscle cars. As much as I love classic pushrods, they can't do squat after the 1/4 mile.

The point is, they're bringing cars that will please everyone. And instead of acknowledging that fact, you still complain. They're bringing back damage and making it better, they're bringing back the super cars, they're bringing back replays for God's sake, something that's been sorely missed for a VERY long time.

The only thing that would make this game perfect would be a pursuit mode, but you couldn't make it like Most Wanted on account of the damage model (though it would be realistic, who wants the game to end after you hit one squad car).

First one was tons of fun, more interesting than Diablo 2, just not as much replay value.

Second one...those damn side quests nearly drove me insane. Still haven't finished it.
