News Comments > EA: Forum Ban Equals Game Bans - Updated
5. Re: EA: Forum Ban Equals Game Bans Oct 30, 2008, 11:19 ColoradoHoudini
 
Oooh..okay.. so the only way to play with friends in Red Alert 3 is through some EA matchmaking service? Is this correct? So if I make a forum account, then mouth off on the forums.. i can no longer play the game in multiplayer?

Did i get that right?
if so..
why not just ban their ability to forum post forever and call it good at that?

what am I missing here?

Keith:

You play the same way I do.. except, I suck.. so that's why I play that way.
I do love a symmetrical, aesthetically pleasing defensive setup.

I will be playing it.. but I won't be playing any version that has some stupid anti piracy built in that limits my ownership experience as paying customer.

that's all i have to say about that.

I find no issue in this few weeks of "alternative" time in the game.
My main is in full Sunwell gear.. i don't PvP.. i don't need to do quests.. etc.
This game has been out for 4 years, I have done everything I need to do in this game to this point. I am just awaiting the new expansion.. until then, for me .. this invasion is a fun side story.

I'm going to need that game to look a lot better than those screenshots indicate.
That better be the low end stuff.. because that looks are corny as Tabula Rasa.

Here's to hoping they can pull off a really damn good universe to play in.

News Comments > UT3 Expansion Revealed
15. Re: UT3 Expansion Revealed Oct 21, 2008, 00:12 ColoradoHoudini
 
I could really go for a truly supported new version of Unreal:XMP

XMP was a GREAT game in design, but the engine was a fat pig that made top of the line machines crumble.

a new XMP (thinking mans FPS.. of which, we don't currently have) would be awesome...

For those unaware.. it was like a modern day Tribes.

I just logged in for the first time in months and got on my bank alt and main and sold a ton of stuff. Made a killing..now, I just need to find a reason to play when the expansion comes out.

They nerfed the raiding structure into casualville.. and i don't need any gear until my Sunwell gear becomes obsolete (lvl 77ish..guessing)..

then.. the new raids that they have out at the onset of level 80 raiding are pathetically easy.. ugh.

game isn't challenging any more..
I think i'll stick with Warhammer.

Our Black Orc and Chosen tanks in my guild are badass.
They rush forward, our healers heal them up, they do good DPS and our nukers come in guns blazing..
a well coordinated attack in Warhammer is a BEAUTIFUL sight to behold!

I run Scenario's and do some questing while waiting for an SC to pop.. however, I'd really love to be doing some great RvR.. but like it was mentioned, the rewards just aren't there. I can DPS (I play the Sorc class) the snot out of all the NPC defenders, drop the Battering Ram, use it, kill players that are defending.. and still walk out without a top 50 score out of 60 players..

Meanwhile, Johnny Gamer who shows up only when we're on the Keep Lord gets the top spot and the top roll and walks out with a great item and 3 minutes of contribution.
Something is high;y broken there.

I know it's not about gear, but I need a reward after taking the keep outside of just a job well done, that only goes so far for so long. I also need some sort of better incentive for regular RvR without taking a keep.. some better influence/random rewards etc.

As it stands now, I can get more levels, more accomplished, and more gear in a way less period of time by running Scenario's (Battlegrounds for you WoW folks) and questing then I can RvR'ing.

Here's to hoping they fix that!

If I could, I make the exact video game, in the exact genre that Dagok wanted, then take out his favorite feature right before it ships.

News Comments > Champions Online Beta Sign-ups
1. I just read... Oct 13, 2008, 23:12 ColoradoHoudini
 
this part from their main site:
http://www.champions-online.com/game_features

Game features.. and let me admit this first.. I have a personal vendetta against Champions Online and the whole CoH/CoV franchise, because I thought the CoH/CoV franchise had a ton of promise, but ultimately let me down because the game lacked depth.

After reading the Champions game features, I am left comparing this game to current MMO's and notable MMO's of the past.

Where is the Champions Online crafting? Player Quests? Battlegrounds? Scenarios? RvR? End Game raiding? Unlocks? World events? Reputation rewards? Gear? Guild facilities?

I see nothing in that game besides "creating a character" that is of any importance or depth. I have a feeling that the game is going to be CoH with updated graphics, and the ability to change your powers colors... yay?

Please someone give me a reason revolving around depth that will make me want to play this game, because god dammit, i really want to play a super hero MMO that hooks me

I love the game so far.

RvR.. Keep Sieges.. PQ's.. regular questing..Scenarios. the layout of the game, the abilities, all the classes- so far so damn good.

Even if Warhammer does have server merges.. I have a feeling that game isn't going away anytime soon.
It sure is a great game thus far.

ex (semi current) WoW player.. end game raider.. (We have the game on farm).. ex PvP'er when it was cool to do world PvP.

having said that.

Warhammer is fucking awesome.
the questing is good.
the PvP in Scenarios is great.
the RvR PvP is ridiculously awesome.. epic..incredible.
The abilities/tactics/morale etc are great
the way you level up from either PvE or PvP is great.
Player Quests = love.
the depth of this game is just damn impressive.

The one nitpicky thing.. the animations arent stellar and the graphics could be a tad cleaner - for 2008.

But the game is flat out awesome.

thanks fellas, I appreciate the answers.

I only went with the huge PSU because I thought I might need something that beefy.
I can go lower, no matter to me.

Thanks again.

What a god damn fantastic game.. good god there's tons of shit to do in this game.
I did my first Keep Siege last night, it was awesome.. good times.

Oh, on our Role Playing server (Phoenix Throne).. the admins post world messages to everyone when they ban a gold seller.

It shows up in a box on the middle of the screen.. some RP'ing nonsense about someone getting burned at the stakes or whatever. Funny stuff.

This game is awesome.

I have a Microsoft Action Pack in front of me.. with an unused copy of Windows Vista Ultimate 64.
The CD reads "the disc contains 64-bit software only"

I suppose that will work just fine? Or do I need an off the shelf version version of Ultimate that (as much as I'm reading).. has 64 and 32 bit support in one OS?
