Apart from the dated visuals it really isn't better or worse than the pointless Medal of Dutyfield games (in singleplayer).

I love some of the comments that have been said about "If you don't like this game, you're clearly not old school", when Duke suddenly has a weapon limit and regenning health...

Don't forget the lack of secret areas.

News Comments > Crysis 2 Steam Crisis, Origin Exclusivity Planned?

Some of you think that origins is competing with steam and that's good. But sorry to inform you, exclusivity is not competition. Competition is when everyone is selling the same or similar product. This is not the case. Competition is good for the consumer. This is not.

When steam has exclusive titles, that's not good for the consumer either. So I'm not being hypocritical here.

Death to exclusivity in digital distribution!

Sometimes some people have lower standards compared to others.

If ths boring predictable game was one of the few FPS I have ever played I would also say it's pretty good simply because I have nothing to compare it to.

When you compare this game to other FPS in the last 5 years, it falls short big time.

This game is an embarassment to all the companies that have their name plastered on it.

The level design is too simplistic with standard cooridor shooters from the early 2000's. The reviews reflect that fact.

The only positive thing I an see is that the graphics aren't to bad and there is some variety in the gameplay. Also the one liners are mildly amusing and more amusing the younger you are.

Overall the game is just lame and dumb. There is not much in it.

The reviews are in on IGN and other sites (check metacritic) and the reviews are very disappointing. A shame, I was hoping for better.

ICBM's travel through space. They just not supposed to go off until they're back on the ground. You know why nuclear weapons are illegal in space? Because they tried it once. Over the Pacific which for
No they go off over their target at altitutde so the energy is released over the target not into the ground.
Nuclear weapons are illegal in space because various treaties have been agreed upon making them a treaty violation.

I couldn't tell which Chaos Space Marine legion was depicted in the video. BUT I DID SEE THEY FUCKING HAD THEIR HELMETS ON.

Maybe the Empire is facing budget cuts.

There seemed to be blood letters of Khorne so I'm going out on a limb and guessing World Eaters.
I was leaning toward World Eaters or Word Bearers myself. The guys least likely to wear helmets and they wear helmets. PUT ON YOUR FUCKING HELMET, DIDN'T GUILLIMAN PUT THAT IN THE DAMN CODEX?

Time will tell just how PC friendly Rage will be, otherwise there will be a lot of raging about Rage.

I hope you are right, Hump. However I don't see how a console game can possibly be more of a sim given the lack of controls.

The only way anyone responds to my posts is if they are outrageous and black and white.

Would you all have responded to my post if I said:

id's engine are not nearly being as licensed as they were back in Quake and Quake 2 days? Which is more accurate than what I said in my previous post?

Oh please. Sounds a tad disingenuous considering that the last time someone used their engine was early 2000's?

Nobody is licensing id tech.
2011: We never liked licensing our engines. Now we don't have to. We win.

Really?

P.S. I hope that Rage is good, up to current standards in story driven FPS. I hope id becomes relevant again.

How likely are we to get a Mechwarrior game simulation instead of a first person shooter that is coming to a console? Not bloody likely. How can you have a simulation with a console controller?

News Comments > Consoles Lead Skyrim Development

Blue really knows how to select the stories that inflame the PC fans.

In the videos for the game that I have seen and interviews, they brag about how they have over 100 dungeons. The problem with that is, you have 100 dungeons which are cookie cutter and unmemorable. Bethesda entire approach is quantity over quality. They probably have software that randoly constructs dungeons and fills them with enemies and items. You can't craft 100+ dungeons without one. This is why Bethesdas console centric are rpgs are blah.

After Oblivion, Bethesda is dead to me. They don't make RPG's that I like, but I'm sure they will make boatloads on the consoles anyway.

PUT ON SOME GOD DAMN HELMETS FOR FUCK'S SAKE. In the fiction, space marines wear helmets. Not just for the protection, but for the tactical advantage of the "autosenses" and imaging enhancement displays in the helmet. They aren't stupid like the COGs in Gears of War.

And they use cover, especially the Ultramarines, they fight more tactically.
