News Comments > Global Agenda Free Trial on Steam
1. Re: Global Agenda Free Trial on Steam Apr 14, 2010, 21:30 ColoradoHoudini
 
Correct me if i'm handsome.. but I heard that in order to be competitive in PvP.. you really need to level up to the top first.. however, the best way to level is through PvE.
So if you're a fan of PvP (and in this case, it's an FPS, so I will assume you are).. you're kinds stuck like chuck.

Anyone care to give some opinions on this game? compared to.. pros/cons..

News Comments > Cryptic Studios Interview

I was hoping that:
Tabula Rasa would be good
Auto Assault would be good
CoX would be good
Star Trek Online would be good
Champions Online would be good

So far.. to me.. those games are failtastic, with no depth, same color pallets, glorified character creators, and what I would like to call "games from an MMO mill".. just nothing good about them.
Yes I realize they are from different dev houses, but they are all related, or were at one time.

Well.. *shifts eyes*.. the next big Blizzard MMO is an MMOFPS. Someone had to make one, there's a huge market out there waiting for such a game..

The name is "Respawn".. can we just imagine that it has to do with respawning in an FPS.. then draw our own conclusions there? Also, hey.. these guys previously made FPS's.. well I'll be.. okay, I'll go with that hunch then.

News Comments > More Cataclysm Class Previews
3. Re: More Cataclysm Class Previews Apr 12, 2010, 21:12 ColoradoHoudini
 
You mages stole my Bloodlust.. yet ANOTHER unique class identifier taken away from the Shaman.. sigh. Now.. a pure DPS class gets to go instead of a Shaman.. if you're a raid leader and you're left with one spot.. do you take the lowest DPS (Shaman).. or a Mage? Both have the benefit of Bloodlust.You take the Mage..you're lying if you say you take the hybrid DPS, and you're a dummy to boot.

Should I mention the totems range.. yeah.. it blows vs the better buffs.

I think that makes.. 3 iconic class buffs "stolen"?
Bloodlust (mages)
Windfury (DK's)
Totem of Wrath/Flametongue (Lock buff)

I took a break after we killed Arthas in 25man, my resto Shaman needs a good rest.. maybe Cata will bring me back, but right now, I really doubt it. I've been a hardcore raider since MC.. geesh, I've killed every boss in this game.. I'm a sad, sad man.

Now with 2 billion ways to customize your character.. and somehow, even less depth! More identical factories, more generic missions!!

CoX and Champions Online = character creators with a slapped-on game.

Here's to hoping the newer Superhero MMO's do this right.

In Q1 we had a TON of user-created maps that were ultra popular.. and you could download them for free from a number of sites.
IIRC, Spill the Blood et al, were a map pack.. and I want to say that there were 2-3 map packs with a handful of maps per..
I even remember a level designer named Zoid (for some reason, i can still remember that name)

McKinley Station Dave 'Zoid' Kirsch CTF2M1
The Warzone John Schultz CTF2M2
Spill the Blood Dale 'Midiguy' B. CTF2M3
The Ruins of NeoMinonk Ogre De Latoya CTF2M4
Disciple War Grounds Hexidecimal CTF2M5
Two Towers Alexander Bernecker CTF2M6
Gloom Castles Tim Willits CTF2M7
Capturephobolis American McGee CTF2M8 ---hah!

News Comments > On BFBC2's Brisk Sales
10. Re: On BFBC2's Brisk Sales Mar 18, 2010, 23:30 ColoradoHoudini
 
Actual issues with the game (for me)

-still can't see pings (even when I run as admin)
-can't add people to friends list
-server list takes a while to load
-still can't bind ENTER to anything without also getting the squad/loadout screen to pop up every time

Things I do to "fix" these issues I have:
1. find 1-3 very good servers.. play on them..
2. when i want to go back to them, go to my history (adding to favorites doesnt work every time)

There are some nagging issues..issues that should've been fixed pre release, or during the beta itself.
However.. when the game is good, it's freaking amazing.

And now i cannot connect to any server that has over 20 people on a 32 player server..every server is reporting back full.
Is pend 40 minutes trying to find a server that might be in the US that I ping well to..
sigh..
I also hit "Join".. get the connecting animation, then nada.

Batman:
In the beta i said that the recoil was godawful. If I am standing still, and fire 3 rounds, in burst...my spread pattern at 30 feet shouldn't be so large that I miss my target with bullets #2 and #3.

I am using assault rifles I have to fire as if they were sniper rifles

Things I'd still love to see resolved:

The terrible browser interface
The over the top recoil
The fact that I can pour 15 bullets into a guy who is running at me, wielding a knife.. and he kills me.
The inconsistency of the HUD, and yes, i get the hardcore vs normal issue. (some things are just missing..or it's a server side deal?)

But good lord is this game beautiful..and has a ton of potential.

/and as soon as I can connect to the EA server again.. i shall be playing. haha

News Comments > More PC BC2 Players Than on Either Console

I didn't say the computer would go away.. but the companies out there that make their bread and butter on aftermarket parts.
You have to think pretty deep here.. if there's no gaming market driving the need for the latest technology.. that trickle down effect cuts deep.

I've said it before and I'll say it again..
The PC platform cannot die.. imagine how many companies that would affect?
Technologies that would stall?

"Hey great, I have a quad core CPU.. and.. err.. wtf am I doing with it again?"?
"Yay, I got 690 FPS in Word"
"check out my case mod, i can see my generic mobo so clearly now"

The companies out there that could die from a PC gaming freefall ought to be doing whatever they can to jump on board and ensure PC gaming stays alive and well.

Cryptic makes shallow, boring games..and the two other devs houses associated with them (NC Soft and Netdevil) also produces cheap, cheesy games.
Same lack of longevity, same lack of depth.. same color palette, same everything.. just not top quality/top tier games at all.

STO is another failed MMO. (to me.. and many others)

News Comments > Star Trek Online Borg Raid Details, Trailer
6. Re: Star Trek Online Borg Raid Details, Trailer Feb 25, 2010, 22:02 ColoradoHoudini
 
I think the issue most people had with this game, and the issue I had was..
compared to other MMO's out there in terms of things you can compare it to, this game is shallow and boring.. and lacks content. When you see everything you can do in WoW, and see everything you can potentially do.. how big and vast the game is on every level, then games like this fail.

It's almost unfair to new MMO's coming out. If they don't deliver as much content, and do it as cleanly as WoW (the golden child measuring stick for most people) then it's a huge strike against it and it's already starting off on the wrong foot.

Also., this dev house and related devs (Net Devil/Cryptic/NC Soft) are known for putting out shallow games with not much of a long term lasting appeal. So there's that.
