One of these "modern warfare" games should include a stealth stage wherein the player, a suicide bomber, has to sneak around and ultimately explode at a target. That would make a stink to end all stinks.

Oh yes it would.. good idea though!

Oh, and more importantly, I don't know one person who appears to be excited about this title. There's nothing about it that appears interesting -shrug-

News Comments > Neverwinter Announced

Alamar:
We don't like Cryptic.. they produce shallow, boring games and ruin IP's. Here are some related comments I made on another site:

Okay sure, STO and CO made initial money.. however, I'd love to see a chart showing Cryptics game launches and the incline/decline of sales over the years and if possible, customer confidence shown as well.
I think that PC gamers are much more involved and informed then console gamers and word spreads quick in our realm. Cyptic's terrible reputation arrives before you want them to, and smells of incompetence and bottom shelf liquor.
I wonder how many Neverwinter fans might've experience the suck that was CO/STO and are reading forums like this one thinking "as i suspected, I got duped into a title earlier, and here are some informed gamers saying that this dev house cranks out garbage content..no thanks, I'll pass".

Eventually their rep has to catch up to them, right?

Mr. Blue:
"Continue here to read the full story. "
..and that link goes to the embedded video and nothing further, is that supposed to be that way? I was thinking there'd be more to read?
------------
Anyhow, so far, I am very interested in this title. It seems to have the initial elements that add depth to a game, and I need that in my MMO's. It doesn't hurt that this game is beautiful. I wonder if the chaips weight/cargo plays into how it flies..anyone know?

Whatever, BFBC2 lost my interest right after it came out when I realized you were forced to be either a sniper, or an assault C4 class that could singlehandedly take out every objective.

On a similar note, Medal of Honor looks like a huge joke as well. It looks the EXACT same as BFBC2....but on smaller maps. Isn't bigger maps one of their selling points? That game went from a release-buy to bargain-bin-buy in about a week.

I was hardcore into BC2.. I was way into it, and then I, like so many others said "well, i need more", and i got nothing, nobody did. That game got stale very quick. Also, i see NOTHING in MoH that makes me want to play it, if you told me it was a BC2 mod, I'd believe you. it looks/feels/looks like it plays exactly like BC2 and a bit of MW2. What's my incentive to buying a 3rd game so closely related to 2 titles i probably already own?

This is head shakingly dumb. I am waiting for some developer to pick up the Tribes/XMP franchise and create a kickass, modabble game and pull the whole FPS community away.
(a boy can dream)

Maybe Brink will be damn good, but outside of Brink, what else is on the immediate radar?

-reads through the article-
No new maps eh?
This is one of the reasons why TF2 moves along fine (maps galore, real custom servers, tons of updates) and a game like BC2 just sits there, idle in the water. Why the fruit (harsh language!) haven't the devs allowed us to mod this game how we see fit?
They aren't charging for these terrible packs, so what's the reason they aren't allowing us to mod this game?

I could understand if they were coming out quarterly with 12 new maps/new game modes/new vehicles/etc.. and then charging 10 bucks a pop.. but they aren't doing that.. so what the hell is the deal here?

Snabel... 1 post.
Forgive us if we are very cynical of your post/presence.

Want to tell us what we're missing out on these days? I left after about 4 months, the game just felt "off".

kxmode: I said since day 1 on hearing the news of a new ip that Blizzard would go the MMOFPS route. Now the setting I am unsure of, but I can totally see it. There isn't one out there right now, it's a barren market, and they could easily grab it and hold it indefinitely.

If not that...then, a Cyberpunk'ish theme..which also doesnt exist.

13. Re: Warhammer 40K Space Marine Using Steamworks, Not GFWL Aug 14, 2010, 11:54 ColoradoHoudini
 
GFWL is one of the many reasons that the FPS Section 8 failed (the game was also a steaming pile of suck). The lack of server control/modding/proper administrative control/update issues is something I witnessed first hand and thought "why in the hell would a dev use this terrible tech"..
Good to see that the fellas at THQ learned a lesson.

I really, REALLY hope they allow the community to mod this game and make some maps for it as well.
That is really killing me currently with BC2.. the game is stale and has been for a few months now.

Please let Brink deliver a solid game!

I'd like to see someone tackle another issue on the fate of PC gaming- which is.. all the affected companies in the PC-gaming world. I have yet to read one article (hey internet journalists..pay attention) on the trickle down effect of what happens when there is a significantly smaller PC gaming footprint.

Make true PC games, not terrible ports (hello Transformers). Support the game. If it's an FPS, allow the community to mod it (maps especially-BC2). Do not charge me for minor updates that were free in similar games of the past (MW2). Don't give me ridiculous DRM (Ubi!). Treat me as if I know what I am doing in/with my games..do not dumb them down to console kids level (Section 8). Steer clear of over complicated, intrusive, controlling matchmaking services (GFWL).

Devs need to understand that PC gamers are largely more knowledgeable about games and game quality than console kids that buy whatever shiny new game is on the shelf. We aren't going to settle for a mediocre game where you charge us $60.00.

Maybe losing this large chunk of money will force NC Soft into making a quality MMO next time..in response to recouping some of their losses.

hahaha who am i kidding, same old boring and shallow game!

No desire to play this game any longer. If you release a MP FPS and give it a very limited number of maps and no way for custom user content to be used.. you're going to run dry.

If they ever allowed us to map and mod.. i'd be back in.. i assume, a lot of others as well
