News Comments > Steam Machines Announcement
29. Re: Steam Machines Announcement Jan 7, 2014, 01:29 maddog
 
Like many others have stated, I have no desire to play my PC games on my LCD in the living room.

Perhaps if Steam licensed the Atari 2600 library, the Sega Genesis library and others like NeoGeo etc etc, then, perhaps me and some buddies could come over and play some retro Madden or NHL.

Nah, I'd rather get a laptop to set on my lap to play some PC games while the TV is on.

I am fine with no SP. Just give me MP modes with bots.

I hope it doesn't go crazy on the city building.

I just want to take my troops and fight battles. Hopefully the city AI will do a good job of managing my cities.

I enjoyed the first Payday as it had AI bots for playing teammates in the levels.

I have not read if this version has ai for your teammates. Anyone know?

Thanks!

Does this mean that they removed training mode in which I could play against bots with my buddies?

What ever happened to Justin Chin?? I remember reading his interviews in the old computer mags from years ago. He was a great designer who always made me excited for the Jedi games

I don't mind a sequel as long as they are sure to include training mode again.

Being a working professional with a family, I really don't have the time I did in my 20's to devote to online play. I greatly welcomed the training mode in BLOPs in that it allowed me to just quickly play a couple maps and matches and be done with it.

And if they do include training mode, I hope it's for all modes as well.

YES, training mode was a great addition. Hope they do it again in BLOPS2

I admit I dislike CoD (though I occasionally play it) and what it's done to the average gamer, but Black Ops was at least pretty cool. Especially the bots. Bots are far too rare nowadays. I hope Blops 2 brings them back. Not that I would pay full price for it, but it was so wonderful being able to play against something other than raging 10-year-olds with mics.

I'm excited for this. Didn't play the first.

Could we have a new genre here?

Hope that the cryengine sniper game coming out is good to go as well. Wish that one had coop though.

I for one am really excited for this release. While I love the user generated content for GRAW and GRAW2, this seems to offer everything I am looking for in a 3rd person shooter. Played the heck out of R6 Vegas 1 and 2 so hope this carries on the tradition. (Wish there was a new terrorist takedown mode though)

4 player coop campaign and the guerrilla mode have me excited!

Haven't been this excited about a coop game since L4D.

The free to play games are frustrating. I'd gladly pay you $20,30,40 or even $50 for the ability of me to run my own server of your F2P game.

I want to host my own server, my rules, that me and some buddies can play and perhaps have some ai bots fill in the player spaces.

If I enjoy the game, I'd be happy to pay for additional levels and game modes, even guns etc.

Just give me the power to run my own server. Seems like the UT, CounterStrike, Quake games were the last to do this. (Yes, there are new ones as well that allow me to host my own servers)

Oh well.

I chuckle at everyone scoffing at another WW2 shooter. What would be more desirable...another modern war\asskrackistan\Iraq shooter. Yeah, that's original.

I find the potential of the engine to be the exciting part. I am running Crysis 2 with the hi res textures and with DX11 and it looks fricking amazing. Love the pseudo open world style of gameplay.

If they can do that with this new franchise, I'm in. Actually, I'd rather see a true Brother in Arms sequel with this engine.

Also agree. Really can't figure out why, or even how the cars work into it. Now if it was open world ala Red Faction:Guerilla, that would be cool and I could see the benefit of tricked out war machines.

I don't know why, but from what I've seen so far, nothing about this game entices me at all. It looks *very* vanilla.

Agreed. I don't even know if I'll grab it when it finally hits the bargain bin.

News Comments > Dead Island DLC Waits for Patches
14. Re: Dead Island DLC Waits for Patches Sep 16, 2011, 00:54 maddog
 
I'm having a good time with it. People were complaining it's nothing but loot quests but I am enjoying the exploring and trying to find new weapons. I did change the FOV and modified the same file to improve sidestepping\lateral speed.

Just finished some "mission" where I had to turn off some electricity to get in a garage. Was not the simple throw lever but had to look around and see what was needed to get the job done.

The game freaks me out. Always finding myself looking behind me for a zombie.

Anyone know if bot support (ala BlackOps practice mode) has been confirmed yeah or nay?

Would love to hear that there's bot support as well LAN gameplay.
