Another clueless NS2 reviewer, or was something lost in translation?

Get up close and the fight is in your favour, so as the default dog-like Lurk you scramble up walls, hide in vents, and generally try to find an angle that the marines aren't watching.

And why does he keep calling the Kharaa the "Swarm"?

I simply don't buy something when it is an unknown. And a free weekend costs them nothing. But if the game is a year old, I won't even care about it even if it's free.

Natural Selection was a free mod for a game every PC gamer owns. Hardly an unknown.

I actually did read the Eurogamer review. Personally, while I found it more positive I didn't necessarily find it more fair. Of course, I'm not really one to be passing judgment on NS2 since I've only played it for around 10 hours and have had only marginal fun with it in that time.

That is part of the problem, the nature of the game itself. This isn't a game you can unlock its potential in a few hours, it requires a lot of investment to unlock all its potential. That may make it a lot harder to review or enjoy it.

Furthermore the quality of any game is hugely dependent on the quality of the other players. While I've hammered away at the game fiercely and gotten modestly effective at commanding and hugely effective at every alien class (especially lerk), there are still tons of bad/inexperienced players/commanders. For every genuinely well-played game there are many more awful ones. That's the blessing/curse of a game like this. And this guy reviewed the game within hours of it being released when everybody else was as clueless/ineffective as he was. As much as I've played, I haven't run into any godlike beta testers (and never a group/team of them).

Emergence was rather fun... played through it ~three times. Who can forget this (completely necessary/classy) cutscene?

No demo, no free weekends.. it's like they don't want to sell more copies.

How dare they not have a free weekend in the three weeks since the game's release! Greedy fucks! They'll never get my $25.

So (among others) a 4.5/5, a a couple of 7/10s, a 4/5, a 7.5, and 8.75 are "bargain bin"?

This is a AAA game, so... yeah.

And he complained about it being tough for new players, not realizing or noticing that there are servers made for new players. I haven't played NS2 so I've got no idea how obvious the game makes it that these servers exist.

It highlights them in green on server lists and says "rookie server" in the server name, plus there is a filter to show only rookie servers.

So we can't even get a picture of the watch from the article. And I especially loved this bit:

While no actual explosives were found, McGann was carrying potentially dangerous materials and appeared to have made alterations to his boots, which were unusually large and stuffed with layers of insoles, Nelson said.

Doctor Scholl is on the terrorist watch list!

So, in the middle of a recession, with unemployment at an all time high, they'll go on strike for more money and better benefits,

Gee it's so hard to actually google things before opening your craw, isn't it?

Before the Chapter 11 filing in January, citing growing competition from rivals that expanded their reach over the years, the company had been contributing $100 million a year in pension costs. The new contract offer would've slashed that to $25 million a year, in addition to wage cuts and a 17% reduction in health benefits.

Tensions between management and workers were also an ongoing problem.

Hostess came under fire this year after it was revealed that nearly a dozen executives received pay hikes of up to 80% even as the company was struggling last year.

derp derp greedy workers derp derp stupid unions derp derp

Twinkies aren't bad, but come on, everything Little Debbie makes is better than everything Hostess makes (made?). There's absolutely no contest between Swiss Cake Rolls and Ho Hos.

edit: goddammit, now I have to go find SOME sort of pie...Thanks!

Essentially they got a patent on a specific type of page transition, which seems pretty silly. It's like going into PowerPoint and trying to patent one of those stupid swirly slide transitions.

In a statement, Hostess said its bakery operations have been suspended at all plants and that it would lay off most of its 18,500 workers to focus on selling its assets.

Sow when do we start raiding the fallout shelters' cases of twinkies?

but the pervasive attitude among hardcore gamers that anyone who buys the Call of Duty games every year are somehow less intelligent is crude.

They are less intelligent. I mean it doesn't surprise me in the least since people buy the nearly identical FIFA/Madden iterations year after year, but it clearly shows consumer stupidity. These are not new games anymore. Ever since CoD4 (and I actually LIKED CoD4) they've been releasing incremental updates at a $60 premium, and that says nothing of the ridiculously overpriced DLC inevitably shoveled out in between. I was fucking pissed when UT was gearing up for frequent iterations, but for fuck's sake at least Epic had the courtesy to make large, fundamental changes from UT-UT2K3-UT2K4-UT3.

The zombie mode is the only identifying factor here, but I somehow doubt it's worth $60.

I don't know the Crossfire one it mentions, but in MW2, on the crashed plane level, you could run for about 15 seconds then get to a place where you could launch a grenade to where the other team was running.

This was (is?) a major part of the average Counter-Strike round...

I don't want the type of people making purchasing decisions based on metacritic scores playing NS2 with me, so this does more good than bad. NS2 devs said they've made pretty good cash already, at least as much to support the game for a good while.

I'm up to ~90 hours of play already...
