What I do is just find a bunch of models I want to evaluate then go to a local shop where they usually have an actual dark room and somewhat realistic viewing setups.

Well to be fair Best Buy used to have a dark room. I don't think anyone ever used it.

Sharp's PQ tends to be lower, and I'm firmly in the camp that the 4 color technology is complete bunk.

Yup. Well not necessarily PQ, but the color thing was a load of BS.

Because mechs are cool and they open up new/interesting level designs... that the Hawken team failed totally to take advantage of. Maps are just stupid killboxes with no strategic layout.

yes and yes. Part of playing commander is using the mic to direct your team. Rather than constantly selecting and issuing orders to units you simply tell people to do things.

Personally I find myself backseat commanding a lot, since a lot of people are new to NS2 or NS in general... suggesting things for the commander to do, directing teammates, calling out enemy locations/numbers... commanding is fun but I'm much more useful on the ground

I had no idea that was them, however didn't DICE buy most of that team? After which they then made BF2?

They were let go immediately after BF2 shipped. And they were brought onto BF2 development after it was underway.

Could someone breakdown chivalry for me? Is it just a multiplayer flavor of mount and blade's combat or what?

No, the melee is more fluid and precise than the wild flailing offered by M&B. And it isn't trying to be a sim.

We think we're so smart and tough, and all it takes it some wind and rain to remind us how fragile we are.

No, more like how awful our housing and infrastructure are.

Wouldn't call a peak of 6700 concurrent the weekend of a release a raging success, especially considering the amount of work/time that has been put into NS2. I've managed 20+ hours since launch so I'm certainly doing my part.

I don't know what you define as "properly", but I enjoyed Star Trek Online, Lord of the Rings Online, and a few others just fine

... retail games that ultimately failed and had to go F2P to survive. Different when a game is built from the ground up with microtransactions in mind.

Where NFS: Most Wanted is a thinly veiled Burnout Paradise 2

Um.... that sounds fucking awesome. Shame about the EA thing, though.

Dunno what you talkin about, I ran an archer with Dawnguard (crossbows do insane damage). Dawnguard also adds a few incredibly powerful standard bows.

Arching is insanely boring, though, in true elder scrolls fashion. Mages can throw fire and ice and summon shit, melee characters can block and power attack and whatnot, and archers can... zoom in. Wow.

As an aficionado of both popcorn movies and Doom itself, I can say with absolute certainty Doom was a horrible, horrible, horrible, horrible movie. Not quite Uwe Boll, but close enough as makes no matter.

If you want a good "popcorn" movie involving Dwayne Johnson, watch Faster or The Rundown. Doom ain't it.

As I broke fast this morning I thought maybe, just maybe, it wouldn't rain for a while. Then as I readied myself to finally pick up tree debris from the yard... it began raining.

At least according to that blurb it will actually involve a castle named Wolfenstein and Nazis. It's already 10000% more faithful than Doom was.

All that remains to be seen is if the American will be named Blazkowicz.

There is a "training mode" but being a veteran I'd no reason to try it.

As with all things, best to dive in and pick it up as you go. Just don't command until you've figured out everything (which will take hours). Use a mic and ask questions if you don't know how something works.

If anything, being an NS vet put me at a disadvantage. While the marines play much as they did, aliens are totally different.
