"Ah yes, a typical news day at the [hog] farm for 'tards."

No wonder this title went straight to the bargain bin! Now that's marketing. This is the kind of developers all publishers dream of having. Why a grown man would post such nonsense is beyond me. This is what you call professionalism. His behavior explains why he had to pretend to have a PHD. If as a business man and a developer he post stuff like this it's safe to assume he could never make it through a PHD program.

" I don't understand the question... what camping?"
Like I said I donot own the game, in other words this is all based on ehat people have said in here and in reviews.

"The last-but-not-least element that keeps the game from breaking through to something consistently fun is, ironically, the way vehicles are set up. In addition to having no tanks or planes, only the attack chopper lets you operate the vehicle and shoot things at the same time. Everything else is like driving an extremely death-prone bus. And the Stinger and AT4 launchers are so powerful that the passenger vehicles become killboxes if you dare stay inside for more than a minute.............Nerf the snipers and add some attack vehicles, and it could be a real barn stormer. " from one review.

Some people complained about camping so I brought it up. As to the question of hoe a vehicule could help, simple a fast moving jeep with a gun mounted on it could help someone get to a sniper while being to fast to hit. Thisis just an example.

As for your other questions. "Not sure what you are looking for in regards to fixes"

From another review: "With that said, Joint Operations is already a great game with still more potential for improvement. When it really gets going, it's an exhilarating game of modern combat, albeit one that's also weighed down with some bugs and gameplay issues. For what it's worth, the same was true of Battlefield 1942 when it shipped, though that game's growing pains seem long forgotten by now."
Most reviews i've read have a comment similar to this one.

Since you've had a great experience with the game I assume that th earlier pathes helped and that the game is worth buying.

I thought the last patch fixed te router insues. At least that was what pepole where saying in here after testing the last patch. How much gameplay isues does this fix? Any sign of new vehicules to offset the camping? I don't own the game I just want to know how much has been fix, I decided to wait before buying like i did with BF... once BF was patched good I bought the game same should happen with JO if they do a good job.

16. Re: Will computer games rise again? Jun 21, 2004, 18:12 4D-Boxing
It'a all about gameplay and polish! So many compamies complain about sales but how many release games with the type of polish we've seen in titles such as UT2k4? I've seen ps2 games that where considered not good enough to be published on consoles be published on the PC. If Sony realized that the game sucked and that it had to many bugs why would you waist money packaging it and putting it on the shelves. Maybe they like getting horrible reviews that make people avoid their products... I'm not saying that ut2k4 is perfect game but at least it did not ship like BF:V.

PC gaming will be arround for a long time just cause it offers a different experience.

Dread lol! Trying to start a war in here? " I can't help but think PC gaming is taking it's final ride into the sunset. "

Yeah that's what people where saying on CNN and online in 1998 when the Dreamcast came out! What happened to the dreamcast? Anyways bottom line is that all platforms will survive (pc and consoles) just because they are different beasts. I'm 31 and grew up playing PC games. I've tried console games but never found them to be any fun. Console gamers feel the same way about PC gaming, they've never found pc games to be much fun. The only way one platform or the other can die is if all gamers become a homogenized mass with the exact same tastes. In other words dream on! As a PC gamer I would never dare comment on the stat of console gaming like you did, just because I do not have all the info and you should follow the same strategy. Do not comment on stuff you know nothing about.

Shows like E3 should be open to the public that way people can have a clear picture of the state the industry is in.

time to let the 15 year old kids take over the discussion, 5:30 EST the all the kids should be home and loging on!

PS. We've all seen what happened in Afghanistan, fanatics never prevail. Think before you post and do a little research and you won't advertise your ignorance to the entire world.

News Comments > Site Seeing - NFS: Underground 2
34. Re: I enjoyed the game May 18, 2004, 19:06 4D-Boxing
I also enjoyed the game but not for long. The game is not a sim so did not expect realism, but it would be nice to have a simulation option along with the arcade mode. I've been playing NFS since the first one, I wish they woould take al the tracks from the previous NFS games and bundle them in the next game. The first Underground had the same problem as Hot pursuit 2.... not enough tracks. Despite the variation all tracks felt almost the same. From what I've read in the past people did not like the tracks in the first NFS but i loved the variety offered by the segmented tracks like Alpine. I've played so many NFS games in the past that i finished HP2 and Underground in a day. At this point the the AI is weak for me in those games so i have to play online for some challenge, but EA has serious cheating problems with their NFS games.

I know this is off topic but between UT2k4 and BFV wich game has the most players and are both games getting at least 8000 players a night?

As for BF2, i'm looking forward to that game! With a properly supported SDK BF2 could become a cult classic a la CS.

After reading how Steam killed a CPL event on the day it was to start I thought everybody learned their lesson! HL2 was supposed to ship with the 9600/9800 XT now the X800 and x800 xt will come out and HL2 will not be ready! CS2 will probably use HL2 tech so don't hold your breath on this one.

Just wondering why they didn't just make it gamepad controlled... Now days you can buy gamepad for 20$. I guess they want to make something different not just your old fashion tekken type game. From the video trailer i can tell someone at Lionhead has been hittin' the old bleu micro-dot.

The most fun i've ever had playing video games was with the wing commander series. At 30 almost 31 years of age it's sad to see wing commander die in the hands of EA. I don't know if EA got so big that they lost the ability to innovate or their just stupid but their is so much that could have been done with the WC franchise. After loosing WC, system shock and mech worrior i'm starting to worry about the PC gaming industry, it's almost like publishers are trying to sabotage PC gaming. Now we are going to get a wave of vietnam games, copy cats are going to release their versions and cry that PC games can't sell instead of trying to innovate.
IT's almost like publishers are clueless, i mean so many people cry out for SS3 and nothing. I know their are some issues about who owns the rights to System shock but with demand being so great their is a way to big bucks with the game and keep everybody happy so i feel their is a lack of effort. Fallout3, Grim Fandango2 would also be very good sellers but their does not seem to be any sign of them being made.
I really don't get what's going on in the industry, it's almost like the people who make mods are the keeping pc gaming alive cause they actually listen to what pc gamers want! One could just come in the blue's forums and listen to people start a gaming company and make a killing if they had the money!

Sorry for the long erratic rant but it's heart breaking to see PC gaming fall apart!

@Xenos Overdrive

I understand what your saying. I believe people are reacting this way because of the news update that mentioned adding 3rd person perspective to the game. With what happened to DX:IW the 3rd person stuff just reinforces the fears that PC gamers have about their games being converted into console games or becoming console friendly. I'm trying to keep an open mind about the game until I play a demo but i have to admit i'm not feeling optimist. I have nothing against consoles, but their has been a trend in the gaming industry where games are being made to be please to all platforms in order maximize the return on investment.
