Dear God in Heaven! You know, I'm all for the less traditional arcade-y type air combat games (like PS2's Ace Combat series). I mean, sometimes I don't want to take a freakin' half hour to run a pre-flight checklist just to get in the air for another half hour flight and then get riddled with AA before ever even seeing my target (DCS: A10C, I'm lookin' right at you! Yeah, you! Don't give me that 'I don't give a shit' look! You keep it up and you'll be grounded for a week, which means no LAN games with your little neighborhood squadron buddies! And clean your hangar! It's a disgrace! And it smells like napalm! What the hell do you guys actually do when I go to work all day?!...you know what, I don't really want an answer to that...)

...but I have to know why developers nowadays equate easier, less realistic, with FAST! I hated HAWX because you looked like your plane was having an epileptic seizure whenever you tried avoiding a missile! Everything went so damn fast, like Quake3 in the air! That doesn't make it more fun! And by the looks of that video, and the 'maneuvers' they did to shake a bogie or missile, looked just like the tripe I was trying hard to forget with HAWX... *sigh*

I'm seriously surprised to see the amount of hate in this thread. Damn, all the time I'm hearing the old-guard (which includes myself) saying how they'd jump all over (and under) a new space-sim like Elite. 'Just bring out another Elite!'...'Elite4! Where is it?!?'...so wtf?

I'm seriously giddy that he decided to do something that has been totally neglected by the rest of the gaming world (save for Egosoft and some homebrew stuff...which reminds me to tell you guys that they've got a D3D patch for Elite 3 now! AND custom graphics so you can actually play the thing on a modern system! Just throw FFED3D into Google...) Yes, I'm a little wary that this is NOTCH doing it but I'll keep the faith until I see a serious reason not to. The things he's thinking about doing should have already been done in an industry that should still have 'pew, pew' games by the thousands...and doesn't even have more than 5...

EDIT: Hmmm....not that I'm against the purposed 'world' we get to play in but...

It's now the year 281 474 976 712 644 AD, and the first lost people are starting to wake up to a universe on the brink of extinction, with all remote galaxies forever lost to red shift, star formation long since ended, and massive black holes dominating the galaxy.

That leaves a lot of stuff out. I wonder how he's going to accomplish the whole 'black hole' thing? And no more star formation? That sucks...I dunno...

You know, I realize that they released the game in the worst possible way imaginable, short of actually shooting the customer in the groin with a 12-guage when they buy it, but I (and you guys probably should) give them some credit for trying to fix this horrific cluster-fuck as fast as they can. They've earned a lot of respect from me that was lost at launch by explaining what's going on, listening to the community and dedicating everything to getting this thing to work. And, contrary to popular opinion, people do make colossal mistakes from time to time. If it was a Take2/BC3000AD type situation, my feelings would be much different, but this isn't, IMO. So I'll wait patiently until it becomes the game that was originally conceived...

That's all well n' good. Kick the shit of EA and dominate the gaming world at your leisure, but for-the-love-of-God, enough with the freakin' zombies already! It's like every damn game that features anything that shoots has to have zombies in one way or another! I'm so sick of this zombie shit...

It's a short clip of a pre-alpha "graphics test" shown during a panel at a fanfest, and a recording of a recording in a dark room at that, cut them some slack (the game is unlikely to be released until 2014 at minimum). Even with all that, you can make out some pretty advanced lighting effects, and a far more detailed environment than any other MMOs (maybe comparable to the upcoming The Secret World).

I'm just depressed that I'll be 30 by the time this comes out...

It's just a static cityscape...and really just a single street. I mean, if you are going to show off footage of a game that has been in full production since 2008, I'd expect that you'd have more than this.

This.. They have been working on this since 2008 and obviously haven't done shit because their money laundering scheme er I mean Eve is more important to them. Not at all impressed that a game that's been in development to at least some extent for roughly 4 years, has nothing to show for itself. I hope White Wolf hasn't ponied up too much cash for this project because I would say it's being wasted.

At the risk of ultimately sounding like an idiot for not researching the facts first, if this has been in dev mode for that long, then how can anyone agree it's 'looking good'? Except in the literal sense, and even then it looks like some pre-rendered crap a second-year ani student put up for his mid-terms. If it did indeed take FOUR years to get to this point, in a dev studio that does nothing but MMO's to begin with, and with the 'AAA' talent on hand, I can't understand why anyone would get all giddy about it...If it ever does see the light of day, it will probably be quickly forgotten except for the few fanboys...

News Comments > Far Cry 3 Dr. Earnhardt Trailer
17. Re: Far Cry 3 Dr. Earnhardt Trailer Mar 22, 2012, 09:19 Rigs
 
I was thinking the same thing about the shadows in the greenhouse. Glad I'm not the only one being nit-picky! I assume this is on the CryEngine3? In the two years since Crysis2, you'd think they could've worked the engine a little? Don't get me wrong, it looks good, but it just doesn't go over to...great. Almost, you can see the potential, but it's just a little short, IMO. Plus, my nit-pick list...

1. First off, the good: Those cutscenes in the first trailer were fuckin' awesome! Very realistic, very amazing! I like that they're getting away from the 'plastic face' look, finally...not that has any bearing on the gameplay or the current trailer, I'm just sayin'...

B) Along with the '1 guy against 1000' theme, it's ok if it's done right. If I can be like John McClane then who the fuck cares, right? But two things about it bother me, the fact that every bad guy, except for the main guy, look the same! AND, when you stab someone, why isn't there any wounds on the body itself? Surely we have advanced to the point where we can have location-specific damage decals on the body that show as soon as the wound is made. I just can't get into it if I stab some punk and all I see is this knife-lookin' polygon go into another polygon, with a blood sprite for effect and then pull it out, with no resulting damage. WTF? Guns can cause bullet wounds, but the knives don't? Need to work on that...

3. I'll probably get lambasted for saying this, but it's pretty fuckin' violent. Does it have to be sick and demented to get across that the head bad guy is crazy? Yeah, yeah, I know, Who cares? But damn, it's like every FPS has to up the last one on the violence meter. I can see it if it relates to the story itself, but watching bad guys murder innocent, tied-up civilians, or drowning them in a cave pond...c'mon...

Four - We need higher res textures please! Make my hardcore gaming beast beg! Make it earn it's worth! I wanna see it on it's knees! To hell with the consoles! I want photo-realistic!

I'll probably come up with some more, but what I see, apart from what I've said here, is lookin' really good. I just hope they don't screw it up!

In which case you suddenly find that the violent crime rate in Japan is mighty low.

That's because they're too busy sniffing teenagers panties and faping to scat porn to care...something I don't think Americans will take to any time soon... *looks around*...well, most of us, anyway...

Well you may have noticed that they aren't doing anything else with their time...

oh man i can't wait to completely ignore this shitty game like all the other codemaster abortions they've been sharting out lately. it would be hard not to improve on f1 2010, 2011 should have been a free patch. then some people might actually be left willing to pay for 2012. and lets not forget the dirt travesties, it's a good thing they took Mcrae's name off, as they have almost nothing to do with actual rally racing, colin can stop rotating at least.

Just because you didn't like them doesn't mean they were shitty sims games. I still play GRID regularly and DIRT3 (when it feels like working for more than 10 mins, that being more my systems fault than the game due to heat issues) is still a fun distraction. Toca 2 and 3 are still on the hard drive and raced occasionally as well. And believe it or not, there are still quite a few online races in Toca 3, though mostly from Europe. If you go into the sim game knowing it's not trying to be rFactor, LFS or GTR/Race07, then I see no problem. The earlier McRae sponsored titles weren't exactly 'sims' either, in the strictest sense. I see this F1 series as similar to EA's Nascar yearly dump. (Now that I will admit is certainly more game than 'sim') Again, if you accept that they're gonna try to ring out every last cent from the, admittedly extremely expensive, license, you have nothing to complain about...

I'm sorry, but this business of the same dev team (or most of it) going from one dev studio to starting a new one after the first dies is fucking confusing. What the hell is the difference if the people were in 'Dark Water' or 'Instinct'? Why kill one dev to open another with practically the SAME team? Why not just keep the old dev studio alive? What the heck is different this time around? I'm typically pretty good at figuring this crap out but I'm clueless here as I can't see the difference...You can call me an idiot, but just tell me why first, ok?

This whole 'cloud' thing just leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I've seen too many circle-jerk articles lamenting the future of...EVERYTHING!....is going to the cloud yet as has been previously stated, the US network infrastructure is woefully inadequate and the US based network providers are too busy seeing how many pennies they can squeeze out of the normal wi-fi/3g/4g consumer in ratios and quotas to worry about actually planning ahead far enough to let these massive bandwidth-eatiing techs to mature and prosper.

So that settles it....I'm goin' to South Korea! Who's goin' with me?
