I just want more on the game side.. less on the "memorize 35 buttons on my keyboard" side..
not dumbed down for console stupids.. not ultra sim.. but a fine, dare i say, harmonious balance between the two.

" The game is WoW in tights"

That would imply that the game has depth.. and so far, i see NO depth at all from C.O.

The game appears to me to be "spend hours designing your character... err.. and then.. kill someone.. but man.. check out our character designer!!"

I think either the master browser was jacked when i went to try the demo, or the game is not what i want.. because all i saw were 12'ish people servers.. and in a tactical, thinking, strategic, large game like this.. that's not nearly enough.

I am positive I wasn't seeing everything.

Oh thank goodness.. I thought I was alone in thinking LFD was not that great of a game.. sure, fun for me for about 10 minutes.. then it was "turn corner, more zombies.. go down alley.. more zombies"
I kept thinking that there was going to be more to the game than what i experienced in the first 10 minutes.. so i played on, played coop.. same damn thing. wtf?

The game didnt seem to have any lasting appeal at all.. apparently from sales records, it was very popular, but to me the game seemed like the same damn thing over and over.

What about gaming centers that have in-house tournaments.. are they going to get their own space in battlenet to match up players?
Or will they just say "you... go look for player named ____ in the battlenet room.. play him".

I guess that's probably what they'll do.. and hope for no lag or disconnect issues.

Here's the pitch...
I'm sorry, I refuse to upgrade every year for games. It's stupid.

A SWING AND A DRIVE.... wayyyyyyyyy back... over the wall !!!!!
Agreed. If you upgrade yearly, you really are stupid.

HOME RUN!!


As I scroll through the list of PC titles listed from E3.. I don't think PC gaming is dead.

I wasn't comparing CoD's gameplay to ARMA.. I was talking graphics..
but if the reason the graphics on ARMA aren't so polished is because of the games expansive playing area, then I fully understand.

i don't know much about ARMA at all, learning here. However, if it takes 5 minutes to find any action, then I die.. and then I have to wait 5 more minutes to get in the fray... i will be a sad panda.

I just nabbed Warhammer 2.. because right now, I don't have any decent RTS's.. and i put it off until the price dropped.
I waited because as i understood it.. the game was more squad based, and less about main bases..
and i SUCK at RTS's..so i turtle like a chump.
-------
Back on topic..
I should reinstall C&C 3 in the meantime
just to get back in the zone of it all.

I really wish there was another Earth 2160 game.. the tech tree in that game was deep as hell, and impressive.

every video i look at makes the game not look very good.. or it's in a low resolution.

not that the graphics really, really make the game, but CoD 4 (which is a bit older) looks freaking amazing at higher resolutions.

I play CoD 5 in hard core only..I like that, even if there are too many artillery/dogs/nades..having said that..
I'm looking at a movie for ARMA.. it looks, clunky.

I'll give the demo a shot, but I don't have high hopes for it.

" I have never seen a game launch with so many issues than this one."

I remember the game "Devastation" .. which was supposed to be the Counterstrike killer for MP FPS..
the launch was the worst thing I have ever seen.. and the game was fucking terrible (minus the robot rat bomb)

16. HAWX questions.. Jun 17, 2009, 17:06 ColoradoHoudini
 
Nowhere else to ask this.. figure I can use OOTB as a catch all..

I recently bought H.A.W.X and was wondering if people had better experiences with it on the PC using a gamepad or joystick? Keeping in mind that this is the only gamepad or joystick game I'd be playing now.. and I'm not sure what else is in the pipeline as far as good games go that would use either controller. I am not a flight sim fan, more air/space combat action --although i dont know if there are any of those types of games coming soon.
(god I'd love a new action-oriented mech game)

anyone know right now which controller i'd get more mileage out of? any recommendations on either?

I hope any one of these superhero games has some sort of depth to them.
champions gives me absolutely no hope for lasting playability.

News Comments > MechDuels Launches
1. Re: MechDuels Launches Jun 9, 2009, 20:35 ColoradoHoudini
 
In my head, i think that a mech-based game, where there are something like 128 players total or per side.. lots of upgrades for machines, territories and stations to capture (with benefits) and headquarters etc.. would be an awesome game to play. Like an FPS in main design, perhaps persistent stats like a CoD or similar.
just thinking out loud..
i'd really like a new Pc mech game.. anyone know of any in the pipe?
