News Comments > New U.S. Game Labeling Bill

You know what else has been "linked"? Eating rice has been linked to having black hair.

You know what else has been "linked"? Being a mass murder to having a mustache.

Bills like this is a consequence of the general inability to evaluate evidence.

This bill (if it passes), is going to just waste another court's time declaring it unconstitutional as soon as the software game publishers challenge it in court.

Played this game the past couple days......been in beta for awhile but I can't stand to play arena for very long so I stopped playing for a month or two.

I have two big complaints about this game that are kind of related to each other.

1) Team stacking, you'll know it's happening when it takes like 2 minutes to fill the teams on the next map. Everyone is trying to stack into one side or the other but can't until someone gives up and picks the other team. When it's bad, it COMPLETELY ruins the fun of the game. It will literally end up being like 7 minutes of flag caps, with possible base camping to boot.

2) When the teams are not well rounded (sometimes due to stacking), the whole CTF experience becomes a big mess. If all the flag runners join one side, you have no one to chase them. If no one has forcefields, it's hard to stop them. When people have the extra packs and stuff it gives them advantages you as a non-flag runner player will never match even if you are a decent player. I think this is related to stacking because it tends to be high ranked players who are runners, because flag capping gives stupid amounts of score compared to everything else.


And far below the other two 3) The classes don't seem quite balanced. Raiders have a lot of kick, and when they get mobile jammers they are better than the Sentinel jammers.

Technicians have no good ability to kill heavy classes, and their primary role is defense with their stationary turrets and repair gun (which is crazy slow considering how easy stuff blows up). And when the gen is taken out, your turrets are dead and you lose any advantage you might have had. It's quite infuriating to try to play one, because often the gens are just left dead by others even though the lack of radar, turrets, and forcefields really hampers the ability to defend the base from the run by flag guys.

And I keep reading about how people thing sentinels are really good, but their sniper rifles only does 500 damage when it's fully charged. Friggin juggernaut can kill half your team with one shell...like 1300 damage to each target. If someone plays this class I'd love to hear why it's so good, even the claymores do pretty crap damage...takes 2 or 3 of them to kill a light target usually.


The balance of the classes is OK, even tolerable when teams are pretty even on skillset. But the imbalances become really noticeable when you are doing what should be your classes primary role and someone comes in and eats your lunch for 5 minutes of the match at a time.
About the Technician role. It's quite funny really. People are complaining in the Hi-Rez forums that the Thumper armed Technician is way too powerful. I know I know, in pubs it's frustrating because some people do not play certain roles. But you really need someone on generator defense/repair role. It makes the defenders job a lot easier when they can put defensive flag turrets and the base turrets and forcefields to make the job of flag chasing easier. When I see that our generator is constantly down I switch roles and defend the generator in pubs.

I'm not a fan of stacking. It's a lot more fun when it's competitive than one sided. HiRez needs to implement a random team feature. I want randomness to place me on a team if so choose to, so I'm looking for a Random button instead of picking from Blood Eagle or Diamond Sword.

I love the beta and every patch just makes it better. However it seems they have recently enabled 16v16 whereas servers actually have 16v16 players when before they had 13v13 even max. Now there seems to be some hitching that I have not experienced before in months of playing in the closed beta and now open beta. I don't know if it's related to the 16bv16. But that's the only knock I have against it right now. Everything else is pretty fun.

Though I would love to see an option for 100 inheritence meaning that all non hitscan projectiles inherit the intertia of you the moving player so you have to make aiming adjumstement accordingly. At least give us an option for this on custom servers so people can experiment with it.

Seriously, YOU CAN'T PLAY THE LEAKED PIRATE PC VERSION.
Compare apples to apples not apples to squash. Who cares if you can download the game when you can't even play it because there is no crack. It's a non issue.

The little detail is that you can't actually play the game on PC if you downloaded it now. But if they said that, then it wouldn't get the clicks. Never let the facts stand in the way of a good story/headline that will get you the clicks.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinions but not all opinions are created equal. Some have better facts and logic behind them than others.

8 GB of RAM? Is the entire game supposed to fit into RAM?

Less RAM than my desktop... and besides, RAM is cheap.
This isn't meant as fighting words but "so what?"
What programs do you have to run simultaneously in a gaming computer do take advantage of 8 MB of RAM?

Trailers? After that totally misleading Dead Island trailer, why would anyone care about trailers? They aren't even made by the same company that is making the game, way too often. Show me actual gameplay, the stuff I will be actually seeing most of the time.

News Comments > Hydrophobia Developer Going Under
8. Re: Hydrophobia Developer Going Under Feb 28, 2012, 13:28 Overon
 
I got Hydrophobia Pure when it was on sale for 5 bucks. They went nuts and they built an interface in the game where you could rate their game and provided granular ratings to the various parts of the game. They really implemented a great user feedback system. Which told me they really cared about the feedback their game received.

I enjoyed the game, the whole Thomas Matlhusian philosphical angle was great. I did not enjoy the boss fight because it was painfully frustrating. But I saw some videos on how to do it and eventually finished it.

I really feel bad for them that they are going bankrupt.
