News Comments > On Modern Warfare 2 Balance
5. Re: On Modern Warfare 2 Balance Jan 14, 2010, 12:55 D4rkKnight
 
I've tried the One man army + reload noob tube, and oh boy is it cheap.

My biggest complaint with this game is that the maps went backwards in quality from MW1, and why not remake and include some of the old maps that were so good.

I would say I like about 40% of the new maps, and about 20% of them are just horrible, plus there are just not that many maps total.

That and of course you can't pick maps to play, you can't kick cheaters, the P2P fails hardcore at times, the usual complaints from IW's choices.

Yeah multiplayer was always a blast, but is the single player campaign worth playing now if its fixed up? I never bothered with it once I heard about the problems it had, just went straight to MP.

News Comments > Jagged Alliance 3 Cancelled?

I bought my copy off GoG. It's version 1.12, and the 1.13 mod worked fine, cant speak for other mods but I am sure they all work.

These might be worth checking out too, if the version you buy doesnt support the mods. I have not tried them myself but apparently they are close to final:

News Comments > Jagged Alliance 3 Cancelled?
29. Re: JA3 Cancelled? Dec 21, 2009, 13:15 D4rkKnight
 
Like I said, I've been playing the game recently (JA2 with 1.13) and you get no help from militia when taking new towns. The only time that applies is when you take a sector and rarely have enough loyalty to start training.

Usually you must take the at least half the town if not the whole place (Alma) before you can train anyone, and 90% of the time the enemy counterattacks before you can finish.

It is a very difficult game, I'm playing on normal (experienced?) and just started encountering Dedriana's elite troops with sniper rifles and grenade launchers and I am having a hell of a time taking sectors with a full squad of good mercs, so I think I'm going to hire another squad and start doing simultaneous attacks from multiple directions.

Not surprised by this news, as this is what I was expecting for awhile now.

I just bought JA2 on GOG and applied the fan 1.13 patch and I am having a blast playing through it, truly an awesome game if you like TB strategy/rpg.

It's shame there wont be a sequel anytime soon but maybe sometime in the future somebody will revive it.

I hear this is single-player only, and the best aspect of MoW is it's multiplayer. If your new to the series I recommend waiting for Gold, or buying the original.

News Comments > L4D2 Demo and Steam Patch
10. Re: L4D2 Demo and Steam Patch Nov 11, 2009, 14:43 D4rkKnight
 
I actually had no problems in single player with that bug, once I played online it hit me hard. Game was entirely unplayable until I deactivated multicore, and the problem is it defaults to on each time I start the game and I tend to forget.

Can't say I have any other issues with the game, it runs just like L4D1 but with more stuff, and a lot more gore. I have to say I liked the zombie horde music more in the first game.

News Comments > OFP: Dragon Rising Dedicated Server Plea
19. Re: OFP: Dragon Rising Dedicated Server Oct 7, 2009, 17:45 D4rkKnight
 
Checking server browser...average ping is 200-300, one game has 90, thats the lowest I see. I've checked all day today and its ussually around 250 ping. I average around 30-50 ping in source games.

Also any server with more then 5 people is 400+ and that 90 ping game is 1 person. The lowest I can join right now is 1/4 with 207 ping.

Yeah thats the mirror patches scrolls links to , i get 50kb/s on that ;/

Is there a torrent somewhere?

Oh, I didn't even look. IDK of any euro links, I live in the states and Filefront has always been good to me. As for the game I'm waiting on some opinions from others before trying it.

My piece of shit netgear temporarily cuts my connections if I refresh server browsers too fast...

Same here, I make sure to find the best 15 or so servers for all the source multiplayer games and favorite them, because a full internet list will kill my internet connection for awhile. Not as big of an issue in this game but for TF2 and CS:S its a must.

Your right they did it with COH, but that game is very popular so guess what happened, it got pirated LAN. Works easily enough, and I played it with some friends who refuse to buy a copy, and we had a great time. Same will happen with SC2 and if it needs to D3 as well. It sucks that the warez scene has to do it but these games WILL have LAN.

Well the cheapest internet here is $30 a month, slow dsl... $50/month for Comcast. My friends place where we hang out has no internet, so we still LAN, not with this game apparently.
