I found the first Borderlands to be subpar at best. Dunno what people saw in that game. The concept is gold, but the execution was terrible.

Your problem is that you never played it with three other friends. The game rocked playing it four players Coop. Thatís where the real fun was.

ME3 could have the potential of becoming a System Shock 2-like Coop-MP experience, and this is what I'm after.

Yeah, that's not what it's going to be. It's just a "Survive the Waves" co-op mode. That's all it is.

Creston

Are you sure about that? Iím not so certain, they stated a while back that the Coop would have its own story and would have an effect on the main campaign. Iíll have to do some looking, but I think that Coop your thinking about is one of the play modes in the game but not the only one.

Update:: According to Priestly, "players can choose from a variety of classes and races, form an elite Special Forces squad, and combine their weapons, powers and abilities to devastating effect as they fight together to liberate key territories from enemy control."

Priestly also revealed that co-op missions will affect the single player campaign, having a "direct impact" and "giving players an alternative method of achieving ultimate victory."

Does Origin count?


Man, this is one of those games I really wanted because of Coop. But Origin just makes me cringe when I think about it and that evil software touching my hard drive. I shutter to think about it.

That isn't dying. Your char is still playable. It's just a xp loss and your equipment is still on your char. They should have a mode where you have just one life. I'm not talking about difficulty, just removing the immortality of the char. Even three lives would be fine. Just some sort of *real* penalty for dieing.

edit: like the D3 unicorn rainbow t-shirt.

If you want to play that way, have at it. but donít lobby for the rest of us who DO NOT want persistent death on a character I have spent countless hours building up and playing just to have it die and be gone forever. No thank you. I do not care for that crap nor do I want it. If itís a setting or Hard Core mode for players like you thatís great, but do not force it in the three other modes that many of us like to play in.

Most ridiculous quote of this still young year so don't get too proud of yourself just yet. What's next? You gonna claim that Steam saved the whales? Come on. Don't be shy. You know you want to cough up another knee-slapper.

If saying things made them true then you'd be the prince of the universe You can try to paint a doom and gloom picture about piracy all you want but the PC platform is starting to thrive again largely on the back of digital distribution services. Piracy is a problem on all platforms but it doesn't mean PC exclusives can't be successful, both independent and traditional publisher funded.

First off everyone, this guy worked on Titan Quest. Need I say more when it comes to how they treat PC users and their unruly tactics towards PC DRM. I lost all respect for this guy once he uttered the words I worked on Titan Quest. Blehh!!!

Nice! A Steal!

Not exactly a steal, I was kind of hoping it would come under the 6 dollar mark too. But I did enjoy this game the most. Loved the underworld area. Good fun down there. Plus the undead too. I really was disappointed when they moved away from the fantasy side of this game. That is what kept this game interesting and fun to me. Iím a huge DnD fan so, put me in a dungeon and Iím a happy puppy.

I believe that this was the first game to introduce rope arrows too. No one uses those in game which is disappointing, Might and Magic Dark Messiah was about the only other game to use them.

WOW, this looks pretty damn cool! How are they able to make a C&C game when the IP is owned by EA & still active?

It takes as inspiration Westwood's original vision of C&C Renegade, that is, a RTS/FPS/TPS hybrid in multiplayer. It's not a copy of the C&C series, rather an inspiration, hence they're free from trouble from EA.

In other words, this game has the potential of being a multiplayer massive hit.

Donít worry, EA is at this very moment contemplating buying these guys up as they did Dice. It wonít be long until this group of guys is brought in and corrupted by the Evil Empire EA.

News Comments > Morning Consolidation
7. Re: Morning Consolidation Jan 30, 2012, 12:34 Darks
 
Personally I get tired of this debate on who is entitled to their share of someone selling a game used or buying a used game. Imagine if you took your car to a dealer and wanted to trade it in for a new car. And if the manufacturer of the original car you are trading in decided that they are owed a share of that sell.

Absolutely ridiculous those publishers feel they are entitled to a cut of this. If publishers want a cut of used game sales, then start an outlet store where people can sell and trade games in for newer one. Then the argument will be settled.

The part of this that really bothers me is that publisher feel that they own a game that we bought. they dont own shit.

I canít believe that they didnít know the game was unfinished, if they didnít then their QA process is really screwed up. Plus, whereís his apology to those that bought this unfinished game? I didnít see one in his comments. Shameful!

Welp, better get it fixed quick, because this really could be the end of PC gaming if it doesn't.

This is why I do not trust EA. Way too many issues and far too many inconsistencies with this company to do the right thing. If itís not BF3 getting people banned it Star Wars. Pick your poison.

How about expanding the functionality so I have a reason to run Origin other than BF3? It's about as useful as Impulse is.

I donít care what they add to it, Iím not adding another gaming client to my list of games now. Nor will I install this DRM/Spam infested piece of shit software on my PC. Plain and simple, I donít trust this software and I damn sure donít trust EA.

My question to all of this would be why did it take a review site to complain and threaten to never again review one of their games to get their point across and get a reaction out of Ubishit. Why are our concerns and thoughts an afterthought and not taken seriously. That is what bothers me about this.

Itís like we are an afterthought and our comments and concerns are not taken seriously.

LOL, thanks Creston, I was about to say the same shit. UBishit can shove it where it doesnít shine. It will be a cold day in hell before I buy one of their games. Full removal of this type of DRM or no buy, itís that simple.

News Comments > The Old Republic Cancellation Issues; Trailer
25. Re: The Old Republic Cancellation Issues; Trailer Jan 19, 2012, 16:48 Darks
 
Doombringer wrote on Jan 19, 2012, 16:10:
For one, canceling because of the Slicing or Biochem nerfs is ridiculous. That is the MMO equivalent of a child's rant, like stamping your feet or holding your breath. These professions were fundamentally Too Good and could not exist fairly alongside the other professions. Anyone who got upset about these nerfs would have probably also cancelled WoW when Stormherald's stuns were nerfed... again, because those stuns were simply Too Good. Look beyond the end of your own nose -- things might be great for you as a Biochem expert, but the guy who didn't get Biochem is feeling he made the wrong decision. Balance is key. And often, balancing and rebalancing happens many times throughout an MMO's lifetime.

But the Bioware goof with the cancellation option being unavailable or generally difficult to use? A major gaffe. They definitely have egg on their face for that.

Then again, I remember the Customer Service nightmare that was WoW in those initial months. And the subsequent nightmare, a few years later, with the Blizzard Store and BlizzCon tickets. Sometimes, these companies cannot perfect their backend systems... something breaks somewhere... nor can they always fully prepare for demand.

Excuse me Doombringer, but you clearly are out of touch with Slicing as a whole. Have you used it? Did you try leveling it? Have you sent your companions out on countless missions to only take loss after loss in credits each and every time? I doubt it!!

Try sending your companions on missions that cost you 2k plus each time and they only come back with around 1800 credits. A total loss. And Iím not talking about the many missions they come back on that are failed. Total loss of credits. Iím not the only one who is pissed about this. Try looking up the forums and reading what others are saying about it, there is over 140 pages worth of complaints about this.

Slicing as a whole was to make money; it does not net us anything but credits to help support the other skills. slicers where the ones buying mods, armor, weapons and whatever else was needed. After slicing took the major nerfing that it did, the AH went completely tits up. No one was buying anything. I know someone who works at Bioware. I had many discussions with them about this and other things he admitted to me that they over stepped their bounds and didnít think this through clearly. And that they needed to make better attempts at talking to the user base first before taking such drastic actions.

As we can see that still isnít happening with the way changes are being made for the wrong.

My quitting was not solely based off Slicing; I had many other issues like loosing mods from armor when changing a zone and this happened several times. Or the many other bugs in the game that to me after being on the beta are bugs that were there months before release. At that point I felt I was paying for a beta. And decided to quit.

Hmm, not posting on the forums reeks of damage control revved to the max. And people not having the sub cancellation button available? Oh dear.

Bioware is in panic mode, and now they shut down the forums to try and keep things in control but all that is doing is making things worst. I cancelled mine after the Slicing nerf.

I got so pissed off about it that I said screw this and canceled mine. Glad I did, because things are spiraling out of control and EA is now looking like shit. But turning off the forums and trying to prevent people from subscription cancelations is just wrong.

At level 45 it cost you over 45K to train one skill. Thatís absurd!

Yeah, this is definitely another weird factor in the game. For example, it would cost me ~28k credits to upgrade my Corrosive Dart skill but the difference in damage is simply far to low to justify the cost even though I have more than enough credits to cover it. Factor in all skills and you're looking at 300k credits + easy

You know that sad part about this? I know someone directly involved and at the top of Bioware and I brought up many of these points to them and I pretty much got the, we know but we are not going to do a damn thing about it. To say I was pissed off is an understatement.
