News Comments > QUAKE 4 Patch Plans
48. Re: DM focus? yeah, right... Jul 16, 2006, 10:17 tron
 
Yet Tron, like Riley and the other person, didnt bother to look it up himself before stating that I was wrong.

you still didn't prove your point. those quotes did not say that DM was going to be the focus of Q4. they just said that DM would be a part of the game. however, theBorgie found a quote that did in fact prove that Q4 was intended to be PRIMARILY a single player game experience. no one is saying that Q4 didn't have a DM component, just that is wasn't the focus of the game.

so, either back up your claim, or shut up about it already.

oh, and you can read this in the meantime:

33. DM focus? yeah, right... Jul 16, 2006, 01:26 tron
 
When Quake 4 was first announced it was specifically stated that Quake 4 MP was going to be a major focus

give a link to even one source that backs this up. this game was promoted as being a quality SP game from day 1, with added DM just for fun. Quake Wars was/is the multiplayer game, Q4 for the SP action. this was always the case, and no one besides you has ever said anything else.

releasing a game, or even releasing *news* of a game other than WoW would quickly dispel such rumors.

43. Re: SiN May 12, 2006, 23:08 tron
 
Btw anymore reactions from SIN? I'm thinking of getting it

i like it. i'm 4 hours and 45 minutes into the game (i play slowly and look for every secret) and i am enjoying it more than i expected to. twice i thought i was at the end, only to have the action continue.

it's very similar to HL2, but with a lot less of that paranoia/Matrix vibe and a lot more humor and b00bies. the level design is great, the action is frantic and fun, the story is interesting, the graphics and sound are on par with those in HL2.

i enjoyed HL2 a tiny bit more, if only because i really like the HL universe and mystery. i think many people are bashing SiN just because they hate the episodic pricing model. me, i figure $18 (i pre-ordered) is worth it for a 5 hour game that i'll play through twice. and i'm not exactly rolling in cash...

bottom line: if you enjoyed HL2 and you are in the mood for some similar FPS action, and paying $20 for 5 hours of play (yes, i know it only takes 4 hours if you run-n-gun through it) doesn't bother you - then you can't go wrong with this game. i'd give it about 87 out of 100. a solid B+.

80. MMO fees May 11, 2006, 11:57 tron
 
why hasn't there been this much protest over the monthly fees MMO games charge? paying $15 a month is by far a bigger rip-off, IMO.

24. crashing IE May 8, 2006, 12:51 tron
 
bluesnews has been crashing my browser for the last two weeks. i'm using the latest IE6. also, the banner ad at the top of the site says:

"This file should only be called from Klipmart's Ad Delivery Javascript Files. It will not display an ad by itself."

i usually visit bluesnews 5 or 6 times a day, but with the site crashing me to the desktop every-other time i visit, i'm getting sick of it...

anyone else experiencing this?

32. movie analogy Apr 27, 2006, 08:18 tron
 
although i agree 100% that this episodic concept will end up making games more expensive, i also think that it is inevitable.

and just for the fun of it, i'll restate my movie analogy which i have mentioned here in the past. it costs around $8 - $10 to go see a 2 hour movie. that is $4 - $5 an hour for your entertainment. if this game provides 6 hours of play at $20, that is about $3.33 per hour of entertainment. plus, you can replay it as many times as you like. and there is multiplayer available as well.

it ends up being much more bang for the buck than going to see a movie. yet i never hear anyone raging about the cost of movies.

7. Re: Blame game Apr 26, 2006, 21:40 tron
 
I think Blue is just being sarcastic and joking around…ya know with everybody blaming video games for every trouble.

hmmm, you might be right, enahs. it does make sense. i wish blue had answered though, because i really wonder why he added that remark. he's either saying something that i don't understand, or he made a joke that i wasn't quick enough to grasp.
