News Comments > BioWare on MMO Mass Effect Possibilities
2. Re: BioWare on MMO Mass Effect Possibilities Feb 27, 2012, 12:04 Darks
 
I would like to give Bioware the benefit of the doubt, but I donít feel that this game will be any different then SWTOR. To many knee jerk decisions made and they are way to quick to make changes without talking to the community or letting the game get its legs to see how itís going to pan out. Plus the fact that they donít even have SWTOR under control yet doesnít really bode well for them trying to take on another MMO at this point.

Game is NOT in good shape. It has HORRIBLE animation lag they STILL have not addressed!

You must be joking, Iíve been on the beta for many months, and playing it with friends 4 players coop and never once did any of us have any issues at all with Lag or any animation issues. I think someone needs to get a better pc or get his ISP checked. And btw, we have played thru the beta through several versions up to the latest and with each itís only gotten better.

Actually after reading that thread, the skirmish is available but it is limited to 1vs1 so no coop against the AI. You are also unlocking and leveling up but only for 1vs1 maps? Not sure I understand that, but anyways, as long as I can "practice" offline and not against a live player I am happy. Most time I am playing 1vs1 against the AI anyways so it is not a big deal for me at least.

Itís a big deal for me and my friends; we get together twice a month and play Coop type games. and we love RTS games against the AI. So this game rapidly fell off our list. But we are hoping Eugene sees the light and hooks us up.

What's this game like? Does it play like RUSE ?

Iíll let you all know now, if you are looking to play against AI in multiplayer Skirmishes, then skip this game. There is no AI in the game at all. Except for a 1V1 SP skirmish. Thereís a big forum posting about this and how everyone is disappointed and trying to get Eugene to give in and add it to the game. But at this time there is no word from Eugene that they will add it any time soon. The game is basically a MP PVP ladder game. Very disappointing but thatís what it is.

If you wish to have your voice heard and want AI added, then go to this site and voice your opinion.

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!

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.
