and here I am playing Toxikk (and VERY impressed with how well it works, feels and plays.. very!)

I'll be skipping any CoD / BF game from here on out.

I went off to find any sort of gameplay.. and instead found this:

"...even if it doesn't show what the actual game will look or play like."
Yeah ahh.. i need to see actual gameplay, ya lunatics!

It's pretty fucking apparently that you should release a quake style game that's modable to get people playing/buying and playing again.
They don't care. Their bread and butter is in the console sales not in PC.

Toxikk?

Soon as i have some funds, i'm picking it up. It's more of a "try to send a message by supporting the old ways of FPS" than anything else.. though i hear it is fun too

One thing I saw recently regarding a phone was it came with 16gigs of RAM. However, I don't know a single person who uses their phone to the extent where 16gigs of RAM is needed.. hell, not even 8?

It seems to me that phones are reaching a tipping point where I don't know what they can add that I need or want next? Heck, I have a 3+ yr old phone and it runs everything I do pefectly.. and I'm a "power user".

I don't know what phone tech is next, but it has to be a "must need" for me.. else, I'm fine for a while.

I played a bit in the beta.. and I know it's different in live, but from my experience and the comments I am seeing from the community..there's not much to do once you get a decently outfitted ship (and they can be gained quickly). Along with that, and I understand "hey man, it is space".. it's VERY empty and I felt alone.

The lack of interaction with others/NPCs has been such a sticking point, that the Star Citizen fans came out to the forums to say "please.. make sure we don't feel like we're alone"

News Comments > Battlefield 4 Server "Strike" Plans
6. Re: Battlefield 4 Server Jan 1, 2015, 14:34 ColoradoHoudini
 
I just want another AAA title FPS where we operate the servers and we make the rules. I don't need 100 levels of permanent unlocks and perks nor any other ways for them to suck money out of me (DLC map packs).

Wolf:ET was awesome for this.. unlocks were based on total progress throughout a campaign. Each campaign had about 5-6 maps or so. After the campaign ended, the stats reset for everyone. We made maps, we made mods and we ran the servers.

I know that the new Blizzard game wont allow that.. maybe something else will come down the pipe which will

5. Re: WildStar Update Plans Dec 17, 2014, 20:42 ColoradoHoudini
 
I was one of the ones that said "Hardcore.. f yeah, screw you casuals"..
but I said that too early. I said that when I had time to play and before acquiring this girlfriend (I think I am pronouncing that word correctly).. then my hardcore WS time went away. I never hit max level and I never had the desire to hit max level because I knew if I wasn't raiding, I wouldn't have fun and there wasn't anything to do outside of raiding at level cap. Hardcore raiding would take too much time.

So now I'm back playing WoW and here's the kicker- everything is accessible. A lesson WS is going to have to learn VERY quickly in order to survive.

Even the WS subreddit is an empty space compared to what it once was. Before i cancelled my sub (and before WoD came out), I logged in and looked around a bit ..very empty indeed.

Is this the one that came out most recently?
If so.. YES!
I hope the players got smart, didnt buy it.. and hit them right in the pocketbook (I like using old terms).

Here's to hoping that... wait, i bet the dummies still bought it hand over fist on the consoles, huh?

As someone who was BIG into this title.. and been monitoring the game for the last few months, I can tell you that it's a sad state of affairs at the moment.

1. The raiding is very difficult (which is fine..if you have enough people doing it)
2. There's nothing much of consequence to do at level cap unless you raid. There are only so many new people to run through dungeons (most are alts of people already raiding/end gamers)
3. There are only a very small handful of top end guilds even attempting the content, and there arent new guilds being built up behind them
4. You can feel the population dwindling, you see it.. there's something there that tells you this game needs a HUGE change, else it will fall flat

i loved the idea of the hardcore raiding, hell, up through hardmode Lich King, i cleared everything and did it quickly with top guilds.. but WS doesnt have the friendliness of WoW, the community.. etc.

I am going to bet that EQ Next learns a HUGE lesson here, and doesnt make their next title nearly as exclusive to people. I am not saying "easy mode" everything, but there needs to be better content for more people. The hardcore mentality really did die out years ago. --and I was one of the many saying that WS can support the hardcore end game raiders.. i admit it, i was very, very wrong.

Jet pack jumping galore. It really doesnt seem to fit in with a game that has current day wep technology and being played in a CoD environment.

I mentioned this before and I'll say it again.

I watched some recent live stream of the unveiling of the game, some German team vs. some other team during this event. It was 95% jump jet, shoot, jump, shoot. If you dislike recoil, bloom, inaccurate weapons.. in an Arena-FPS feeling game.. then go for it.
The game really came across like it was trying to use Quake/UT mechanics in the speed, but then in the CoD setting. Remember how Quake Wars was far too twitchy/fast for the mechanics of the game (they where "thinking mans" mechanics, in a twitch shooter..doesnt work).. AW felt like twitch mechanics in a thinking mans game.. didnt jive one bit to me.

I'm almost certain that the level they were playing on is just an updated level from Ghosts, and if it's not, the mapping team lacks creativity..because I felt it was the same level immediately, and that's with limited experience in Ghosts.

From what I saw, the game smacks of "make everything shiny/fast for the ADD console kids".

From what i watched..it was nonstop jump jet, shoot, jump, shoot. i understand that in an arena game, but not in a CoD/BF game.

FPS related (i know, it's off topic).. but Twitch is streaming the new CoD game release right now.. some party event thingy..not sure if anyone cares.
*shrug*

Let me save you the time:
It's fucking awful looking - mechanics wise. It's nonstop quake 1 rocket jumps (with the jump jets) + regular old COD shooting. It's jump, jump, shoot. If you hate bunny hopping.. this game will make you mad with anger. Holy fuck this looks infuriating.

Also, i played very very little of the last CoD title -Ghosts. However, something about this demo map reminds me of a Ghosts map in every way. I swear to god it's the same map layout, but with new textures. Map name: Defender. the Ghosts maps it reminds me of is called - Siege.
