Alien units do not build structures. The game does not take "5 minutes" to load a map.


Maybe that's why I agreed with it - I haven't spent much time with it either.

You've already mentioned disliking multiplayer gaming, what made you want to play one with mandatory teamwork?

Ummm the NS2 GameSpot review was pulled several days ago due to factual errors and a pervasive air of ennui.

It has nothing to do with generations. The critics of today grew up with Bond. They've changed as much as Bond has. I am a part of the "new generation" and yet I much prefer Goldfinger Bond to Skyfall Bond.

Awesome movie, but everyone knows that anything mult-generational...from sports teams to tv shows to movies...is going to have a huge amount of difference of opinion when it comes to "which is best" and none of them are wrong.

I don't think this is it, I think the crux is that the times have simply changed. The Bond of the past was far more whimsical and charming, the villains more absurd, the plots more outlandish. Now we have a "serious" bond to reflect our more "serious" times... they did the same thing to Batman. Critics/audiences ate it up. I love GoldenEye because it strikes a good balance in the middle of the spectrum, with Tevelyan and Ourumov countered by Boris and Xenia.

And speaking of (slight spoiler), Tevelyan and the Skyfall villain sure are similar...

It was a good movie for sure, but too serious to contend as "best Bond ever".

Well at least nobody in their right mind would play this game in the first place, so I guess the secret's safe.

The game doesn't mechanically force you to play as a team by making it the only option, and it doesn't make team play a side show. It makes you actaully want to participate with others. I've never heard so much voice comm use in a PC game [in PUGs], and it's not trolls.

It's only going to get better as more people familiarize themselves with the game and balance issues are sorted out.

Well speaking for myself I spent $25 and have played for fifty hours in the past week since release.

Seems worth it to me. I actually have like a 7-1 record going as commander (mostly aliens) when i virtually never commanded in NS1, too.

The problem is that this offering isn't free: it costs 30 bucks.

Well that about sums it up, in the very first paragraph he gets the price of the game wrong.

I don't put stock in any game featuring "HD" in the title. As if this were 2002.

Scratch that, PCs have had better than "HD" resolution for a lot longer than that.

I didn't realize all these games with regening health had a "turn off health regen" option in them?

I'm still failing to see how that in practice is any different from health packs.

Regenerating health completely removes risk from the game. As it is often combined with liberal use of checkpoints, there's absolutely no tension in combat. Dying has no penalty whatsoever. This is a fantastic way to utterly wreck a game. A good game will literally make me sweat from a combination of tense gameplay and the kind of superhuman focus it elicits from the user. This experience is exactly what I get from NS2.

It's lazy game design, too.

I stood in line for 3 hours.....it is fucking 2012....and it felt like it was the 1700s....

If there's one thing that will never go out of style it's queuing. Who doesn't love a good queue??? At the pharmacy, at the grocers, at McDonalds, at the bank, at the movies... nothing is more natural than ordering packs of human beings into organized lines!

Wish you guys were sensible enough to realize this whole "us vs them" shit propagated by hardline party politics isn't helping anyone. People are always drawing and defending borders between each other; it must be a relic of caveman culture. Your party sucks, your football team sucks, Mexico sucks, Muslims suck, console gamers suck (well I guess I'm guilty there), on and on and on. I think we need a good old-fashioned drug-fueled orgy. Peace love save the trees and shit.

There are already millions of disenfranchised Americans... they're called people with criminal convictions.

There definitely should be higher standards for voters. My grandmother, for instance, is racist. She wouldn't vote for Obama on the sole fact of his being black. She should absolutely, positively, NOT be allowed to vote. In this day and age every citizen pretty much has access to tools to educate themselves and stay modestly informed... but a startling amount choose not to. I don't want uninformed bigots to have any say in a national election.

And the electoral college was put into place because college voters literally had to represent their constituents. This was the days before so much as the electric telegraph, when news traveled only as fast as a horse and rider could carry it. The days when a stump speech was literally a man standing on a tree stump. The electoral college was counted on to relay accurately the opinions/votes of groups of citizens to the federal government, because there was no line of communication between the two.

The thing is Halo didn't bring fps games forward.

...except it DID move them forward, on the CONSOLE. Yeah, Goldeneye was fun splitscreen with four people. But Halo brought the PC multiplayer FPS experience to the console, and it's why CoD is the megafranchise it is today.

I don't think the Feds are going to do anything about it. Nobody wants to start another States Rights battle, especially one so large as this would generate. The usual federal-level war on drugs will continue but we aren't going to see anything like a Volstead Act enforcement policy arise in either state.
