I remember back many months ago, someone on these forums suggested that they would have a crafting system. I don't remember who. Looks like they were right.

Man Valve has got some great creative skills.

I think if you got good line of sight, soldier wins vs demoman if both are relatively equal skill. But in closer quarters with demoman is a terror to be reckoned with. Just look at the videos of skilled demomen on youtube.

Sounds to me like that basic testing wasn't done on new systems which would probably have caught this problem. But for me the point is mute because the game isn't very good according to reviews. Or maybe I should say that there currently new games that are far better.

News Comments > Greed: Black Border Demo
9. Re: Greed: Black Border Demo Dec 9, 2009, 13:50 Overon
 
I played the demo. Graphics are nice. However the inventory management stinks. There is very little room, and you constantly get items that are 6 or 7 levels ahead from where you before you can war them. And there is no way to save them for a later time so you end up converting them to salvage which destroys the items but keeps the materials it was made out of which can be sold. I found myselk throwing all the items on the ground and clicking on them to put the in the inventory just to see if I can use them on my character level. It's too tedious. But overall everything else is what you would expect from the genre and the coop thing is nice.

Until there is something more substantial to show other than the few movies and screenshots, consider project offset vaporware.

These days saying something like "our game will be a true pc game experience" is equivalent to saying "our game will have polygons". It's now a feature that you can put on the box.

Edited for spelling.

Every class should be a viable choice in the game, and bioware should endeavour to make no class superior to others so that no one kicks themselves for being a certain class after hours into the game.

Did you see, the classes have the same names as in mass effect 1.

News Comments > Thief 4 In "Good Shape"
32. Re: Thief 4 In Nov 28, 2009, 11:07 Overon
 
Remember the ending of the last thief game. What looks to be a girl tries to steal from garett and he repeats what the keepers told him when he tried to steal from them when he was her age "You have talent. It's not easy thing to see a Keeper, especially one that does not wish to be seen." That's what happened in the first game beginning describing garett's origins. So the cycle repeats. I wonder if they will think up a whole new world for maybe another trilogy.

Also a modern thief that made use of the light/dark mechanic would have to be as cheesy as splinter cell offering a world that is poorly light to fit the gameplay.

I thought the thief 1 and 2 were far superior to the consolized theif 3. We shall see what design decisions are made for thief 4.

Are you shitting me? This is news? Come on is it a slow news day? They are in design stages of development where they are iterating and using different ideas and this preliminary information is news worthy?

I played the demo. Every game has the ability to control ships directly, so I think it's a breath of fresh air not to have direct control. It makes it a more interesting game because your ship builds and choices and your orders determine the effectiveness of your ships in each scenario.

I hope other developers won't take this example as evidence for no dedicated servers. I don't think even valve could get away with that.

1. Re: New Games for Windows LIVE Nov 20, 2009, 11:48 Overon
 
Can someone explain to me why every game that uses games for windows live, has horrible low bitrate voice quality? Is it because the data has to pass over MS's servers and they don't want to spend the money on greater bandwidth? Is this the qualit you get on xbox live? I doubt it. I cannot understand a single thing said when the voice quality in games like Dawn of War 2 which uses games for windows live.
