He's asking for too much money - and for some reason keeps saying I'll update you on engine features after the kickstarter - which is like - don't you want to be up front now??

Anyway - if he did write the engine - that's relatively impressive.

Not a well done pitch though...

Showing my age - but this is exactly what came to mind when I watched the trailer...

"oh boy they're bringing Quake back as CoD... I hated Quake Arena..."

I must be getting old - jumping around like an idiot and using power-ups doesn't appeal to me...

The game really came across like it was trying to use Quake/UT mechanics in the speed, but then in the CoD setting. Remember how Quake Wars was far too twitchy/fast for the mechanics of the game (they where "thinking mans" mechanics, in a twitch shooter..doesnt work).. AW felt like twitch mechanics in a thinking mans game.. didnt jive one bit to me.

If you watch their demo video of people using it - you can see there was no "this is great" reactions.

I'm not sure why one would invest in something coming late to the party also Rift has enough minds on it now - it's hard to believe a 3rd party is going to be able to compete...

Competition is good blah blah blah - but come on - I think that only works when you're able to compete at the same level...

1C gave up - threw it at the Rise of Flight developers - so it might be pretty good. I'm always amused by this because Oleg dogged on Rise of Flight before it was even out the gate and ClOD turned out to be a joke...

Exactly what came to my mind and then I was like...
aweeee suckage...

"This brought me back to Interstate 76 which obviously isn't the same type of game. But man, I wish they would put out a new version of I-76 with modern graphics. Loved that game! "

It's not P2W.
It's pay to avoid grinding.
If you don't want to grind you can pay to unlock different zombies/plants but it just amounts to wearable props - and variations of weapons fire / ice etc but they're not really an advantage just different play styles...

If there's one thing to bitch about it's a shitty port - I'd stick with the console...


I had relatively high hopes for this one since it's a lighthearted team based shooter. But leave it to EA to ruin it with P2W nonsense...

It's a simple fun well done game.
But this pc release is overpriced.

Don't over think the game too much - It's a team based shooter with a fun look and feel.

At least it's not another lame Call of Duty game...

It's been a fun game for me and my boy.

It's just kind of mindless joy - and we have a daily goal to unlock new chars which is like 5 good games.

I don't know 19 bucks would be a fair deal...

(Purchased it on xbox for such a deal so that might make a difference in how I view the game's value)

Why are we posting this girl?
Everything that was done in response to her ignorance was wrong - but she is extremely for lack of a better word - a fake / opportunist. If you look more into her she actually lies to support her cause.

Unfortunately the trolls have pushed her into popularity by their behavior and has made an otherwise nobody into a valid point of view for the anti-gaming community.

I so wish people were brought up to be responsible for their actions on and off the internet - but apparently parenting has gone to shit.

Oh man... I guess that's why this is being posted - to remind me bring up my boy to intelligently approach opposition.

News Comments > Oculus Rift Adds OLED and Tracking
54. Re: Oculus Rift Adds OLED and Tracking Jan 8, 2014, 12:21 ELITE
 
This turned out to be a nutty thread...

Here is what I got out of playing with one:

-The dev kit resolution would not be worth buying (it looked like a pixel painting that moved)
-Playing a flight sim - when I was calm and flying it was amazing (but gauges were worthless unreadable)
- as soon as the bad guys came then turning my head would be come worthless as well because of the blur
- I started to get sick when i would move my body and not have the screen reflect that movement
- if i stayed still and only turned my head i didn't feel "wrong"
- no eye strain at all

I think these guys are fully aware of all the issues above and are really working to make it a success. If waiting for better screens is what they're doing great - if they're working on adding additional body tracking great.

My point - you REALLY don't want it yet (based on the first dev) and they're obviously making sure they get it to a level to make sure when they ship you're going to want it.

Far as I can read - everything they're doing is problem solving and that's more than you can say for Halflife 3 (i just had to be silly)
