News Comments > Vendetta Online Patched; Adds Oculus Rift Support
1. Re: Out of the Blue Jul 24, 2013, 12:45 Rigs
 
Two for two, Blue, as this is another game I follow closely (it's not one of the more 'well-known' space-combat MMO's, so many gamers don't know about it, but should!). This was announced a while ago in their email newsletter, but obviously hadn't been actually put into service until now. If anyone here is interested in a space combat MMO that doesn't require a college degree to get started (I'm looking right at you, EVE) or a serious time sink, then Vendetta is right up your alley! Seriously, we could use some more fresh meat and the game is awesome. Surely worthy of your time until Star Citizen comes along, at least... Thumbsup

Although there are some things I don't get.
1. I cannot actually mine on my own? I.e. I have to get a ship with a mining beam?
2. Is there a way to save the state of the singleplayer world?

1. Yes...it's LIKE Minecraft but it ISN'T Minecraft...lol...yes, you need a ship...

and

2. Yes...just don't ask me how, I just know you can...

Ok, ok, ok...

Can we just agree to dsiagree on this whole Aliens/Aliens3 thing? You guys are running in circles that have been well-worn into the pavement by other geeks years before...you're not going to come up with anything new that makes any difference in the storyline (unless your making a new movie, in which case I'll give you the number to my agent ) and, on top of that, I've only seen ONE person here mention anything about how the DLC retcons the story, which IS official (supposedly). And no one's talking about it. C'mon guys, it's old already. I know, I know...really, I do. But it's a waste of time...there are whole FORUMS set up for this argument alone, and they're well ahead of ya...

I installed A:CM having read all the drama surrounding it ( not to mention that Yahtzee's take on it is fucking hysterical! ) but I still held out hope. I'm one of those that doesn't always see eye to keyboard with the status quo and have loved many games that most found to be wanting. I also thought, btw, that Aliens3 was a good fucking movie, especially considering the dreck that came after it! (I mean, what more did you want? It was cliche'd up the ass, yes, but it had suspense, some action, and the ending was somewhat emotional and made sense...to a point, anyway. It wasn't the blastfest Aliens was, but what third movie in trilogies actually lives up to their namesakes? It was good enough. It could have been much worse!) The huge retcon doesn't bother me so much. I mean, who really cares, eh? So what, if they make it work somehow, fine. I had to practically zip my mouth shut when Spock was yelling 'KHAAAAAAN! this summer, so this ain't nothin' to get your panties in a bunch about. Maybe the DLC will explain it better than the game itself. Who knows. I'm intrigued. I guess that was the point.

But back to the game. It has it's problems. I'll be honest, I haven't played it much beyond the first sitting. I've been meaning to but...well, then I find something else. I haven't updated it yet either, so I don't know if they fixed some of it's faults or not. Seeing how much crap Gearbox has been spewing for Boderlands2 though, I doubt it. A:CM is this years Duke Nukem Forever. But I will finish it! I don't know how long it will take, but it will stay on the ol' hard drive until it's done...

Would you say it's easy to pick up and play like Minecraft? When I look at it, it seems like I wouldn't understand anything. I'd have to read guides endlessly to do the most basic things. You have to read guides in Minecraft too, but it's still very user friendly.

It's pretty user-friendly, about on-par with Minecraft. Obviously, you have to read some to know what to do, but you can just boot it up and start messin' around without any heavy reading. The way you build a ship and then how you mine minerals/ores/whatever will require some reading, but it's not hard and it's pretty easy to remember once you've done it. It's certainly not something you'll have to constantly refer to a manual or strat guide for...

All I can say is try it. There's plenty to do without having to pay for it. It's definitely worth the measly $3 though...

Geezus, had I known you'd put it on the front page, Blue, I'd have told you about it weeks ago! This is kinda old news, my friend. I've been playing this thing for more than a month now. It's got quite a following, including community made Star Trek ships like a Connie and a Klingon D3, all for the taking at www.star-made.org.

If you're looking for something like Minecraft in space, people, THIS is the one! You can land on planets and build stations, including ships and it's heavily dev supported, along with a ton of community support. If you were on the fence with all the Minecraft 'me-toos', this is one to get. Yes, the whole 'blocks' thing is a bit tedious...if not ugly, but it's functional...

I don't see a problem...nearly every Windows tablet is able to be wiped and then you can put on what you want. WindowsRT might be different, since it's an ARM setup, but I think Windows tablets are the equiv. of a Windows notebook only more versatile...

Eh, what the fuck? How is "putting up a page and pleading" not the most honest way to go when fighting to fund your game? They're exposing themselves right to the public eye, and as you can see from your own harsh comment, that's not necessarily a smooth ride.

As for the budget, $200k doesn't sound like a whole lot considering the scope of the game they're pitching in the video.

If you thought my previous comment was harsh, then you don't want to know my answer to that...

Some serious S&M motherfuckers right there, I tell you! Then again, I'd probably be burned at the stake for sacrilege and decried a heretic for saying I actually enjoyed A:CO...On the other hand, Superman64, not so much...

Incidentally, this brings up, IMO, the best and funniest ZP Yahtzee's ever done - http://youtu.be/pPk7gllRZm4

When you all get done showing your geek pride, then maybe you can start on an argument that's more...modern? Of course I speak about the raging debate of which is better - Windows or OS/2?

Yeah, I was just looking at some of the screenies and going, 'Oleg being shot. Oleg's brother dying. Oleg's cousin being blown to pieces. Oleg's other cousin running to help Oleg. Oleg's twin picking up an SMG. Oleg's other brother...' You'd think they'd use more than one or two enemy NPC's since we have more than 4mb of RAM now...

Jets were only an issue during my play (admittedly not a ton of time on it) when you had someone that was really frakin' good with them. I remember one match that seemingly lasted for ages and this one dude was in the jet flying around nearly the whole time. No one could touch him. I was so jealous ...I think he died like twice in a 45-min match. I was usually blasted out of the sky within minutes whenever I ventured into the cockpit...'course I'm more of a sniper-type, anyway... *shrugs*

Except one was trying to be serious.

"Warfighter" or "war fighter" is a serious buzzword used very often by the DOD and defense contractors. There is nothing odd or silly about its use as a game title; the game just happened to suck, is all.

*ahem*...I'll just leave this here... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vuNN1D-FCjs

News Comments > Battlefield 3: Close Quarters DLC for Free
22. Re: Out of the Blue Jun 15, 2013, 14:08 Rigs
 
For someone that is almost completely 'SINGLE-PLAYER' -centric, I rather enjoy BF3 online. The single-player campaign was really good too. It didn't just feel 'tacked on'. I almost put out for 'Premium' but I don't play MP that much to justify it. Though having some of the DLC would be pretty cool, especially for the ultra low price of 'free'. All that having been said, I can't see why DICE and EA can't setup the BF games to be like their predecessors and have bots along with the multi? I mean, is it really that hard? You have a single-player campaign with AI already, how difficult would it be to add the same options as BFs' 1, 2 and Vietnam? Perhaps that would push it a dollar over margin? I mean, we are talking about EA, here, yes?

I get F1 and Rally racing, but will never for the life of me understand the draw of NASCAR.

Close racing.

Yup, I remember that race! I also remember Craven's huge, death-defying wreck at Tally all those years ago where he flipped up and over 4 cars, crashed into the catch fence and then back down over 4 more cars and into the infield without hardly touching anyone! And there was nothing left of that car afterward. NASCAR racing is just something, I guess, you have to have a thing for. I watch Indy and F1 but I'd gladly watch a NASCAR cup race over either. When I'm racing in IRacing, it takes constant concentration and it isn't easy! Just because you go 'left' doesn't mean it's a walk in the park. You have to hit your marks, just like Indy oval racing, and you don't have nearly the amount of downforce to stick you to the track as F1 and Indy cars do, which makes it more challenging as well. The 'left turn' comments don't bother me, it just tells me that either A: They've never really sat and watched a whole race all the way through and given it a chance or B: Are just being ignorant...
