News Comments > Cliff Bleszinski's PC Shooter Plans
2. Re: Cliff Bleszinski's PC Shooter Plans Dec 11, 2013, 22:10 Highlander
 
I think FPS games have been extremely dumbed down for 1)consoles and 2)average joe/jane gamer. I wonder if employing that 'old school' genre/style will influence any response from a new generation of gamers who don't care about what stuff was like 10-20 years ago.

Can't say I'm a CliffyB fan but I'll give him the chance to impress me and make me feel like returning to play that gametype again, because I came from that era of PC gaming where arenastyle games were new and fun. Will it be again?

Since I'm an experienced and older gamer maybe it's a good thing the games have been dumbed down, to keep par with my slowing reflexes!! Enjoy them while you can guys!

I always felt that John made great technology for a very average game company. Imagine if John worked for Valve or Blizzard 15 years ago, the world would have been a better place.

What in the hell are you even talking about? DOOM? Quake? Hello?!? All possible because John Carmack formed iD Software!!! The world *IS* a better place because of what he did in pushing FPS gaming back in the early 90's to what it's become today.

Far Cry 2 was such a mess on PC, the controls and responsiveness made it complete garbage.

So I care less about FC3.
No, it wasn't.

Yes, it was. The controls were floaty and terrible. I installed and uninstalled in a matter of minutes after playing it. However, I am looking forward to FC3.

What was wrong with the MW3 dedicated servers? Where they pay-servers only? I know they were unranked, but that's kind of expected. From what I understand that killed them, because they stupidly didn't automatically make them fully unlocked, but I didn't pay any attention beyond that.
What was the big flaw?

The HUGE flaw was just that, they were unranked and the only way you could rank up was to play on the shitty, laggy,cheat/hack-ridden peer to peer matchmaking system that IW dreamed up. No one played unranked, even though they could customize the server to any weapon level or map, but people want to rank up their stats. P2P sucks and sucks HARD.

Sounds EXACTLY like that liar 402 Bowling. "Yeah it has dedicated servers" *winky face* said for MW3.

When it's this late into the development and you won't announce what PC players can expect in the way of TRUE dedicated servers. Even if they are through GameServers, then we know there' something fishy going on. Treyarch knows what's going on, they just don't want to tell us because the PC players will go apeshit bananas on them.

To hell with the CoD series and Kotch/Activision. Its rinse/repeat gameplay and console-ized P2P matchmaking bullshit. I had hoped that Treyarch would keep the faith to PC players but they are going the console way. Forgetting what platform put them on the map.

ERROR 37

That error is meaningless now. Sure, it happened to people trying to connect on launch day, myself included but I have not had that error since.

Admittedly, Treyarch has catered well to the PC users, unlike Infinity Ward. But the dodged questions about dedicated servers really does send a message that their business strategy has shifted to the console market and that PC players will suffer with the next BO title.

Even if they gave us the same dedicated server model as Black Ops currently uses that would be better than what Infinity Ward has given us. Peer 2 peer gaming sucks, and does NOTHING to prevent cheating in the short term, if at all.

DONE with the Call of Duty series. Hoping that EA can pickup the ball with the next MOH and give us PC players what we need, instead of lies.

Same ol shit. More lies, dodging of questions, half-answers to questions that only create more questions. They know the answers, of course they do this far into development with only months to go. It's more of that douchebag Robert '402' Bowling (lying sack of shit) all over again.

I am DONE with Call of Duty. Might as well make it a 100% console game, that's all they give a shit about anyways. Fuck you Activision, and Kotich too. Greedy SOB's

I have a few old games registered to my Battle.net account, none of which are Diablo.

I'd have a pretty good laugh if they let me into the beta. Zero hours spent playing Diablo games.

You'd be their target customer then. A new recruit.

I registered and tried out the ongoing beta many months ago and played for a few weeks. While the graphics and sound effects are good for a web-based game, the missions/quests are EXTREMELY repetitious and get boring quick. If you enjoy the cyclon vs colonials pvp, which can be extremely fun as huge squadrons take on eachother fighting over resources, or just for the hell of it, then it may be of some value to you. But you'll need to do your missions to get resources to buy weapons, ammo and upgrade your ships.

I really like the BSG universe and tv series, new and old but the repetitious mindlessness of the game turned me off and I gave up on it and uninstalled.

Your not doing fabulous things john you are making crap monster shooters that are garbage. And trying to rip off Borderlands with a cheap crap remake is even worse.

How about you stop your 1980's lectures on technology and just STFU.


The guy invents the FPS genre and you're telling him to STFU? The guy has continually set the bar in gaming engines the last 20 years.

Go buy a Summer's Rain and douche the sand out of your vagina, damn whiner.
