Looks like a SoF2 clone.. no thanks.

But seriously..I wish this game had been a bit different. "Mechanics do not match the features" is the best way i can put it.

maybe when it hits the bargain bin and/or some neat mods come out for it.

I really hope that the extra content gets ripped out and put up for downloading by pirates.

This whole pricing scheme is abysmal.

I played (still am playing?) the beta and I enjoyed the hacky/slashiness of the game. It didn't have a ton of depth, but enough to make me think that the game would be purchasable if I could get all the extra stuff that they promise the paying subscribers, but get it for free.

I know I should save my money due to an impending divorce, but god dammit.. i really feel like I am missing something by not playing TF2.
wait a tick, I can buy TF through Steam for only 30bucks?
Am i missing anything in that price? All i want is TF2, that's all I need right? No other game dependency?
I really wish QW would've turned out to be a better game. The numbers are telling, under 2,500 people playing during peak times, that's a crying shame. SoF2 has around the same amount of players, and that games is how many yeas old?

Man.. i am complaining.. but not really..
too many games to play!
I can't even begin to list them all, but i'd hazard a guess at around 12 games that i have the beta, demo, test, or full game of.. or I'm eyeballing. I don't have the time I need.

But i love it!

13. Re: Um.... Oct 25, 2007, 13:10 ColoradoHoudini
I'd love to see a mashup of Tribes and Unreal:XMP..or jsut another tribes game.
A thinking mans FPS.. that's still fast enough that you don't get bored.

I LOVED building my defenses up top of Broadside (blastside?) whatever.. me in a heavy, radar, mines, camera, turrets.. playing cat and mouse with invaders.
Those were my generators.. and you couldn't have them!

That game rewarded smart play and fast reflexes.. so much fun.

i'd love to see a spiritual successor. and not Tribes:V .. that horribly arcadey game.

5. Re: QW is not Wolfenstien Oct 24, 2007, 21:53 ColoradoHoudini
I played the UT3 beta demo, and I love the feeling of that game.. even though it was not the finalized version. It still had the right look and feel, the weps were spot on.. just felt right.

I played the QW beta for a long time, and while I liked it at first, within a short period of time I was rather "blah" about it. It had too many issues that I knew needed to be addressed, and I mentioned them to the devs, but just like my feedback on Tribes:V.. it went ignored. Lots of people had great feedback and we called the low numbers. Now I read about the issues people have and why they aren't playing any more, and they are spot on to my comments previously.

Now I look at the gamespy top games and QW is not nearly where it should be at all. It's ranked 15th, just behind the Halo demo and SoF2.. wtf? The publisher/dev/game name alone should put this in the 5-10k range.. it's barely visible at 1,338 players. That speaks VOLUMES.

I wouldn't even say QW is complicated, as for all the features it has, you can wholly overlook them and still win. I won't get into all of my personal feelings, but I will say that the features of the game, don't match the mechanics.

I still believe that the features in QW do not match the game speed or mechanics.

2.3 looks really cool with ZA and Sunwell Plateau.
I took a 4 month hiatus from WoW, and recently started playing again. My guild needs 9 more bosses and all will be cleared raiding wise. 3 in Hyjal, and the rest in Black Temple.
I finally got to raid SSC, as the guild has it on super farm status, and man is that place cool looking.

also leveling up a Druid alt.. Druids are exactly what hybrids should be. Damn my Shaman!!

I was hoping it would've been a tad bit deeper.
It's weird though, every one of the MMO's from that publisher (or dev house..whatever) lacks depth and has the same look.. and it really doesn't draw you in once you're past the initial creation screen.
see also:
CoH/CoV/Auto Assault

in WoW.. within the first few levels you could see how big the game was, how much there was to do, how much your character had to grow. How immersive the capital towns were, and most of all, the game felt solid all the way around.
In TR beta, I never got that feeling.

During the beta I never really quite felt like I was playing the game the preview videos and interviews told me I would be playing.
That's the only way I can sum up my feelings.

I still havent tried out Crysis or Frontlines yet.. those beta installs are just sitting my computer. hah.

About a few months back there was a post about an arcade-stlye flying/fighting game and the screenshots looked nice. I slightly recall something about the release date not being far off.. anyone know what game i am talking about?
sorry for the lack of info.

i remember getting excited thinking i can use my joystick again.. arcade flyers are good fun

15. Re: Cool! Sep 25, 2007, 20:00 ColoradoHoudini
I'm not interested in the mounts or what to ride in/on.. that was just an example.
like the others have said, I walked outside the base, blasted some guys, ran back in. k.
what's the big thing coming up? whats the cool stuff to look forward to?
All the quests i did were exactly the same.

when i first started playing Earth and Beyond (my first mmo) i knew all about the cool ship upgrades, the big raid battles, the exciting weapons. i saw defenders, gatherers, missile based ships, stealth ships, repair dudes.. it was awesome.. all this stuff out there and it looked great.

I just dont see whats out there, what the reason to keep logging in is, like they said "wheres the carrot"? my caracter at level 5 felt no different than lvl 25. okay maybe my guns bullets were green instead of blue.. yay?

lack of classes, or should i say, lack of a good distinction in classes, and only one race doesnt help either.

11. Re: Cool! Sep 25, 2007, 18:37 ColoradoHoudini
One of the things that put me off of this game was the fact that i had no idea wtf was coming in the future, as in: what to look forward to. In WoW I knew what i could look forward to. not so much in TR. Also, I was in the early beta and not terribly impressed with the content. i'm sure there is more now though.

I want to know what the TR equivalent to mounts, epic mounts, Onyxia, Raids, epics, flying mounts, etc is.. because i didnt see it

question: why in the future, do I not have a cool vehicle? i warp to and from bases, but then walk everywhere?
I also despise the cave settings, reminds of the awkward and ugly CoH caves. Cant navigate out of them for shit.

I also didnt really dig the combat. Lastly.. the game felt like CoH/AA..and not in a good way either. Those games felt very "light" and generic. I cant qualify that statement, but they felt that way..
