I'm going to need to see a lot more from this game before it gets any of my attention/money.

"Why is this funny to you? Do you really enjoy being vindictive and malicious? "

I'm guessing here, but he just dislikes some of the PC posters so this is his way at getting back at them.
However, I'm sure he's kidding because he'd be a fool to not understand the trickle down implications of a PC gaming scene dying, anyone would be a fool for not understanding that angle.
Having said that, it sure doesn't seem like the trickle down effect of PC gaming collapsing is ever mentioned. Maybe because it's not collapsing..I suppose that's the biggest reason. However, should it start to full on die.. oh boy.. not good for any gamer.

Nah, I've been a well-informed avid PC gamer since Netquake.. I know better and I don't buy on a trailer or hype alone. I like the whole concept of the games, I jut got a bit too excited there.

I would love to see another Unreal XMP.. ya know, a smarter shooter, something that resembles Tribes in the teamwork/classes department. Run and gun, twitch, fragfests are fun.. but I need a bit more depth in my FPS's these days, and maybe for them to be around the same speed as TF2...ya know, I am not as young as quick as I used to be

The current machine I'm posting from is my gaming machine.
Vista Ultimate 64 - black edition, Phenom II cpu, 4 gigs ram, GTX 260 216 core, good mobo, great psu, 750 gig hd, dvd burner, great case.. cost me under 800 bucks when i built it 4 months ago.. and at the time, it was near top of the line. This machine runs every game at the highest settings without a hiccup...why would anyone think a gaming pc needs to cost 4grand, hell 2grand?

Oh hell no. hell damn no. I have a laptop used just for gaming that I take with me on travel to random places (and places like the Middle East) where I don't have internet connections out.. especially not a connection that would allow that port opened.

i will now wait for a hacked version of this game.. wow.. that screws me over nicely.

10 bucks for a new Tribes game.. and make it more like Tribes and a lot less like Tribes:V .. or hell, add-in some of Unreal XMP while you're at it.

and another 10 clams for Rare/MS is they come out with a new Killer Instinct game.. and that means i'll buy a 360 too.

-pipe dreaming over here

I want to make a stink about something small..
stop with the long intros to your gameplay movies... just put a watermark on the bottom of the screen.

1:03 for this movie.. 50 seconds of footage.. i know.. i am nitpicking.

I told myself i would go back and play after I got a new gamign rig, but never had the desire to do so.

Those of you that play WaW regularly, check out the server "USA vs Canada" .. hardcore mode server, no rifle nades, no bettys, no martyrdom.. all skill, all the time. Some of the best players play there..
admins (clan named FX) are always playing there.. good guys, well-run server.. best i found since i started playing WaW.

I'm on there are [UL]Houdini_KD

It'll be nice to get some new maps out there to play on

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.
