I didn't like Cutter's remark either, but let's keep RL references out of here.

It's not my fault I'm almost always right. It does, however, tend to piss off other people. Shit, truth hurts I guess.

Alright, this can't really be Cutter. He's always overcompensated for whatever sad little person he is IRL, but this is reaching parody levels. I wonder if Blue can check IPs to make sure nothing shady is going on here.

What?
No, it sounds just like Cutter. I actually think he's gotten less obnoxious over the years. Or, I should say, negative. For a while all he contributed was "this sucks!" or some variation.

Now he's more likely to follow it up with discussion and generally be entertaining and/or interesting, as well as his standard negative and arrogant.

Cutter used to post over on RPGCodex forums. He arrived here and brought his codex "everything sucks" persona with. He's a worm

The more complicated the AI code the harder it is to have the sorts of "free" systems you have in this title.

Yeah, like Creston said, the idea isn't to make the AI as realistic as possible. The idea is to make it a challenge to overcome, one of many in the game.

Scenario: Hacker terrorist is on the loose. You're a security guard at a key site. Realistically when electronic devices start to screw up, the very first camera goes offline, or anything out of the ordinary happens at all: SHUT. DOWN. EVERYTHING. And then call in the national guard.

That's not very fun if you're trying to do a stealth playthrough without the benefit of a cloaking device, because you rely exclusively on distraction, timing, and exploiting the weakness of the electronic security. If none of that matters because the guards fall back to key locations with clear lines of sight at the first sign of trouble, then you've killed a huge portion of the gameplay.
Yeah "dumb" AI is often a design decision rather than a failure of programmers.

Very convenient for programmers though

Blood Dragon is one of the best games I've played in years. A proper old style shooter and I love the B-grade late 80s early 90s crappy cyborg movie theme.

The guys who made this were clearly fans of Cannon Group, Terminator, and the hosts of rubbish "robot man killer" movies that came out then. Resonates so much with me, pretty much grew up watching those movies.

I cannot say enough good things about this. I seriously hope they turn it into a franchise.

This is let down by the limited terrain present in DCS.

What will the door gunners be able to shoot at? Does DCS feature infantry? (even if it is basic avatar like infantry?)

I didn't mind JA2 after that last big patch that added sector inventory. Before that I found it too tedious.

I know zombies are done to death (har) but I was on a DayZ kick at the time and remember thinking a zombie survival game could be cool with the JA2 engine (inventory, group systems, etc). Too bad it was so un-moddable :/

The best thing about JA was the realised characters. So fun, so full of character. Endearing. A rare quality for a game. Versus most other games which are full of..zombies. Even when the characters aren't intended to be zombies, they are.

Well, the last one was disappointing for me. They really need to work on the AI, from what I was seeing.

Take any JA game and you can say the same thing. I'm kinda amazed this IP keeps getting remade, all the JA titles have been pretty crap.

lol good one you

you fat slob

As a gamer who doesn't care about peripheral subjects that old guys who no longer game yet still think of themselves as gamers whine about - I think this is good news Galciv is a classic.

I can understand the hate coming from people who have poor or unreliable internet connections, I have quite a few friends who moan and bitch rightfully about this. In certain places its really hard to get on a good internet provider and for those people its really a bitch if they want a game that is EXCLUSIVE to Steam.

Offline mode. Issue quite easily resolved. If you mean downloading the game in the first place steam picks up right where it left off if the net goes out so not sure why it's a steam issue.

Offline mode bah. Credentials reset occasionally. Don't go away to a place without internet access.. Don't bother double clicking on the EXEs of the games you own. They won't function without Steam.

Even on PC the vast majority of games can't use more than 2 or so GB anyhow. I imagine anything they add over 4gb would be reserve for the OS. Unless the PS4 is 64bit..

First world problems.

This is only an issue if you live in the US or mainland Europe.

Everywhere else misogyny is alive and well. Not in silly video games. In the real world.

News Comments > Oculus Rift Won't Include DOOM 3
30. Re: Oculus Rift Won't Include DOOM 3 Mar 18, 2013, 16:29 Dmitri_M
 
I bought TrackIR, and while I love it..I also don't use it that much. Mostly because I find it sometimes get's in the way of actually playing the game. It's just a bit of metal that sits on my headphones and it works flawlessly with most titles. Oculus Rift is too far down the peripheral road for me. A device I need to wear on my head close to my eyes. I think it will gather dust, but not after giving me a few headaches.

I think it's sort of sad. If you're going to invest time creating content like this why not do it in a CG application or some other dedicated content creation software where you're not limited.
