News Comments > Section 8 Map Pack and Free MP Mode Plans
2. Re: Section 8 Map Pack and Free MP Mode Plans Jul 9, 2011, 19:01 ColoradoHoudini
 
On paper, this game had everything we needed for a tribes-type game. (it never needed an auto target feature though, imho)

The bases were useless, too many events going on at once on a map- which scattered the combat areas out too much..GFWL blows a hobo's aids penis..

The drop in idea was great.. until you realized that it made the map very tiny and way too easy to move around in.. no forced "oh shit" areas to make your way through. Deployables were pretty useless still.. and died rather quickly. The maps turned into tank battles and between the amount of vehicles and dropping in.. you were able to get around the entire map way too quickly-also, the overdrive.

Had they had a vehicle-limited, 2 large base, CTF-style game mode.. I bet that would've been popular. No drop in.. base spawn or deployable spawn points only.
They f'in copied from Tribes/XMP/UT/ etc.. why not go all the way with the ideas that worked?

I am so pissed at these devs because they had all the tools to make a great game, and then failed.. TWICE. They needed to stop listening to the same handful of fucking FPS-nitwits they had on their forums.

Why couldn't they have just made a bigger world, add a few more playable characters, and have proper multiplayer support? I know that's all I needed to buy this game.. instead they had fucking abysmal controls (btw, is it just me or does everyone have to hit E when they walk over an item (not money) that they want to pick up? I want to pick up EVERYTHING.. all the time.. did i overlook that config setup?

Also.. is it just me or does the game not tell you if an item is useable by your current character? I picked the .. err.. non sword dude? and i would grab staves and maces and all i could with them was transmute them.. never equip.. ever. But i was never told i couldn't equip the items.. they just werent options in my Equip screen.

Someone tell me i fucked all that up..and not the devs

I really wanted to love DS3.. but sweet jesus the controls sucked. First off, i couldn't zoom out nearly far enough, second, the stance changes were not needed at all (imho) and came off bulky. and just overall the controls felt wrong.. i can't explain it.
I kept going back to try it.. nothing.
Instead, I'm probably going to reinstall Torchlight.

I only played for about the first 5 months of release.. but I do recall way too much capture/leave/recapture/leave/recapture scenarios.. like nobody ever cared to defend.
I hope there are some great incentives to holding points as well as attacking them.

Some time next week I am going to look to you fellas for help on building a new rig.. specifically the CPU..and my new rig will be built with BF3 in mind.
I look forward to your help and total lack of both bickering and fanboy comments. (a man can dream, can't he?)

Ahahahahahahahahahahahahahaa.

Boy, those evil PC pirates!

I hope GoW3 still sells 10,000,000 copies, so we can once and for all see that this whole "piracy is killing the industry" fairy tale is just horseshit.

Time to come up with a new excuse, publishers.

Creston

That would be lovely.
"yeah see.. they pirated it and we only sold.. *holds finger to ear*..wait, what? how many? .. no way, that's fantastic!.. well it seems that piracy isn't the real problem, it's developers making shitty, bug-riddled, unfinished games.. who knew!?!"

-we knew.. ya fuck.

after reading the preview/watching the video
WTF is that bullshit??

Dear jeebus, please get some real old school Tribes people in their dev house to make this game the right way.

Failing that..
would someone please pick up the Unreal:XMP license and remake that game..just update the graphics.. and make it run smoother.. thanks!

So... Quake Wars and now Brink, two duds, and the second dud worst than the first.
In my line of work, we have what's called "Lessons Learned".. have these devs learned their lesson now?

How do you go from one of the best FPS's of all time, in Wolf:ET (I put it up there with Tribes, 3Wave Q1, CS, BF2 for being that good, and that solid) to .. 2 lame ducks back to back?

Sigh..I hope they can fix their mistakes and learn. Failing that, maybe they'll just make another failure of a shooter and this time, sell it to the console idiots.. they'll buy anything.

as an Information Assurance Engineer.. sadly, this pleases me.
Means more companies will take into consideration good security.. you'd be amazed at how many don't.

I'd still be playing a ton of Rift had it not been for our guild merging with another guild, in what was a hostile takeover really. Then the ensuing issues that followed afterward.

It's really a well-done game across the board.. good amount of content.. fun boss fights and events..i like it.

Remember when the community made maps and those maps were so damn good that they became standard maps on most servers?
You could even go out and get the highest rated maps via a map pack from a site.

I want those days again

This title has the absolute dumbest/most ignorant/god awfully stupid fanboys I have ever seen in all my years of gaming.
S8P could be so much better.. but the devs listen to the handful of idiots on their forums and made the same damn "ADD" type FPS as the original.

Oh well.

I figure this is as good a place as any to ask..

Anyone know of a more future'ish FPS coming out some time soon? Something along the lines of the weapons/tech found in Unreal. I've been sick of the typical current gen gun games for a while now.

I already know of Firefall..what else?

Can we get some pics of this birdfeeder in action?

I'll take "phrases I'd never thought I'd say on the internet for $800, Alex"
I'm 36 and the prospect of seeing this bird feeder excites me.. wow, I am a sad man.
