Will this open up a position for "Depth Engineer" .. someone who can add replayability to the game perhaps.

I found the game to be absolute garbage in every way save for the pretty background graphics of areas you couldn't get to because you were on rails.

1. CoD 4 and CoD WaW issues.. Apr 10, 2009, 00:58 ColoradoHoudini
I guess this is as a good as a place as any to post this..

what's the easiest way to find CoD4/CoD WaW servers that DON'T allow airstrikes? I just got both games, and while they look and play fucking incredibly.. I cannot get past how the nonstop airstrike spam ruins the entire game for me.
Also, nade spam is ridiculous too... i wish that would be cut in half.

CoD 4.. love it, but i run out, die. respawn, nade death, respawn, air strike death, respawn, air strike, repeat for the entire round.

I understand that it takes skill to get the 6 kills in a row to order the airstrike.. but how many of those 6 kills are nade kills? Why is there no cooldown on airstrikes? Wait, i know there's some sort of cooldown.. but it cant be more than.. 1 second? It's non damn stop.. it's infuriating and ruins (to me) and otherwise stellar game.

I like the faster pace.. sure.. like BF2.. but quicker.. but not quake speed. All the elements are there for a slightly more tactical game.. but it just isnt there.

The artillery in WaW seems god damn excessive too.

So, how can i find modded servers that dont allow this noobfest?

Is there another game with the same polish as CoD4/CoD WaW that I might be missing out on? (I have TF2).

BF 2142 seemed to miss the mark, and don't get me started on ET:QW

19. CoD 4 woes.. maybe related to.. Mar 31, 2009, 18:51 ColoradoHoudini
I just picked up CoD 4 today from the store.. got home, and i've been trying to install it on my freshly built (1 day old) Vista 64 box.. with all the latest drivers and only Nero/Avast/Spybot as 3rd party applications installed on this machine.

I keep getting an "Error 1309"..which from googling, tells me it could be related to some secure nonsense on the DVD.

I can't install a game i bought and the culprit (as much as i can tell) is probably some anti-piracy nonsense. If so, I am god fucking infuriated and will immediately download, via torrents, the game.. seeding as as I grab it.

Alternatively, if anyone knows how to fix this issue, thanks!

1. Re: Hardware Reviews Mar 23, 2009, 12:27 ColoradoHoudini
hey fellas.. I'm putting together a new machine and want some inputs here. Figured some folks might have some perspective.

all from Newegg.

-LG 22X DVD±R DVD Burner Black SATA Model GH22NS30 - OEM (didnt really think a burner choice made a huge difference)
-Western Digital Caviar Black WD6401AALS 640GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s (i don't need anything bigger, i have 4 hard drives on another machine for storage)
-MSI R4870-MD1G Radeon HD 4870 1GB (it came down to this or the GTX260.. but the GTX was 500bucks when you got one with HDMI.. and this is $199 with HDMI and the performance difference between the two is minimal

--having said that.. Any of you guys use HDMI for gaming and see a difference? i won't be watching much, if any Blu Ray movies on my comp (downloaded, not dvd fed, hence no blu ray player up top). Wondering if HDMI is going to produce a huge difference in visible quality and worth getting?
If so.. then I'll be getting this monitor:

-Acer X233H 23" ..thoughts?

-Antec EA650 650W Continuous Power ATX12V (not going to do SLI)
-OCZ 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066
-Foxconn A79A-S AM2+/AM2 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard
-AMD Phenom II X4 920 2.8GHz Socket AM2+ 125W Quad-Core Processor

The mobo/cpu is a combo deal and seems to be the best one out there.

Okay, now do I want to run Vista Ultimate 32 bit or 64 bit? keeping in mind, this is a gaming machine first and foremost. I apologize for not being smart on the OS's.. as I've been running XP for ages.

any info/suggestions appreciated

News Comments > Starsiege TRIBES to Return
29. Re: Starsiege TRIBES to Return Mar 18, 2009, 16:47 ColoradoHoudini
I've wanted a new Tribes since.. well.. for damn near ever. The closest a game came was Unreal XMP, which I believe could still be a badass game if redone on a good engine (not a pig engine like XMP was)..

Failing that..

a true successor to the Tribes franchise is sorely needed. A "thinking man's" FPS.. not that bullshit that was Tribes:V
I remember in beta saying "nobody is going to like this.. it's too twitchy etc.." of course the idiot fanboys who knew nothing of the original Tribes told me to shutup.. yeah, turns out i was right.

Give me a real Tribes 4.. with all the goodness that was in Tribes 1 and the fixed version of Tribes 2.

I want to set up my top defenses in my heavy and play a long game of cat and mouse. With my turrets, mines, camera, inv station and my big guns.

WESTERN ALLIANCE -- best Tribes 1 clan!

it'll be more like DC Universe and Champions.. which is to say.. no depth and nothing besides character creation to draw people in.

CoV/CoH 2 is more like it.

8. Re: WAR Career Opportunities Mar 17, 2009, 15:53 ColoradoHoudini
Anyone have any thoughts on how the game is looking these days?

I got my DoK and my Sorc up to the mid 20's.. did some PvP'ing.. but my comp lagged so bad in the larger battles i couldn't play the game the way it was meant to be played.

I'm building a new comp soon and wondered how the state of gaming in War is now?
