It's been revealed that many of these punks are teens, so they grief like immature teens will do--for the lulz, apparently. Silly stuff like this Murdoch thing.

Important stuff like that and revealing innocent gamers' identities and hacking gaming infrastructures so gamers can't play their online games for weeks at a time, and hacking games we hold dear like, Minecraft.

Great, noble heroes, these kids. We sure do appreciate all they're doing for us, too.

News Comments > RailWorks 3 Announced
12. Re: RailWorks 3 Announced Jul 16, 2011, 18:39 Sir Graves
 
A while back Microsoft announced a return to their Train Simulator series from several years ago. That's what I'm really waiting for. I really loved the first one. An acquired taste, for sure, but I was into it.

I'd grab a cup of coffee, load up a scenic route (the Rockies were a favorite), take a virtual window seat and crank up the room-rattling surround sound, then just sit and gaze out the window at the passing scenery (which was totally cutting edge and breathtaking at the time...and still looks good today). I'd JUST do that. And I loved it.

Welp, they got Blockbuster out of the way so now it's happy ball fun time! Knew this was coming (and as others have said, it'll most likely get worse with more increases and dwindling streaming titles). Nice.

News Comments > On BF3 Multiplayer
23. Re: On BF3 Multiplayer Jul 1, 2011, 16:43 Sir Graves
 
Still wondering (though I'm doubting) if there's going to be bots to fill out servers, like BF1942, BF Nam and BF2 had but BFBC2 didn't, for people who don't like to play with posterior chapeaus, and like to JUST play with family and friends on their own privately hosted servers. Like we currently do in BF2, TF2, L4D, CS:S, etc., etc., etc...

If play "our way" still means their way (like in BFBC2)--being forced to play with jerks and strangers on pub servers only, with no AI bots to add to privately hosted games across all game modes, so you can realistically just play with friends--then no thanks. No buy (like BFBC2).

Not like I'm really interested in this game anyway, but punching sheep would be a draw.

Actually, you can still totally do it (have to punch till it dies now and it will give you 1 wool), but now shearing is just way quicker and more rewarding (yields a lot more wool). Although that all depends on how rewarding punching sheep is to you, I guess.

Quite a nice group of teens, that LulzSec.

R.I.P. jerks.

You want me to pay a monthly subscription fee, Blizzard? Still trying to get me to do that after all these years? Not gonna happen. I'll stick with Guild Wars, thank you (if it wasn't sub-free, I wouldn't play that, either).

News Comments > Battlefield 3 Has 10 Co-op Maps
4. Re: Battlefield 3 Has 10 Co-op Maps Jun 24, 2011, 17:04 Sir Graves
 
Info says co-op only supports 2 players? Bummer.

Hope that's just for the campaign and that you'll still be able to add bots to private MP games. I play regularly with a small group every weekend (L4D, CS:S, Minecraft, TF2) and we don't like playing with jerks on public servers, so we only play privately with each other. Pretty much won't buy this game if it forces you to play with non-friends on pub servers.

News Comments > BF3 Campaign Around 6-10 Hours
44. Re: BF3 Campaign Around 6-10 Hours Jun 10, 2011, 18:48 Sir Graves
 
6-10? Possibly only around SIX?? If it's that, then wow. Ten is lame enough these days (I'm old school where campaigns always lasted way longer), but if it's less than even that, it's a bummer. I hoped it was going to be meatier (that's what she said). I mean, yeah "MP is the point", etc., etc., etc., but still. For some of us, SP is also important and has a huge appeal.

What happened to the "twelve hours" of campaign you mentioned recently, DICE?

Didn't know people left Valve, voluntarily.

Kim Swift, to name one, did it a couple years ago.

No way am I doing that, I want to earn my expert achievements (only 2 to go) the real way, through regular campaign. Wouldn't mean much to me otherwise. But that's me.

I think in a rare twist for me I'll probably play the console game first

Oh, don't go down that road, man. Not you.

Technically, they're (the developers) referring to it lately as an "expansion", not a "sequel" (though signs seem to point to the official sequel being underway). And it's priced accordingly at only $14.99.

Kudos, Blue, for pointing out the 2001 anniversary (one of my favorite films)! You're obviously a man of culture and good taste.

The Blu-ray on my HDTV (65" 1080p DLP) with the Digital Surround and all that, is just MIND BLOWING!!!

3. Needs first-person & bots! Mar 24, 2011, 16:50 Sir Graves
 
If it was first-person, my friends and I all would have all gotten this by now. In a shooter you need first-person. We await the next installment (if they ever do another) and hope they add it.

Oh, bots as well. Sometimes only a couple of us can jump in and play whatever game, and we like to have bots to at least fill up our matches when there's only a couple of us playing (just so there's more action and chaos and stuff). No bots? We don't buy (when it comes to shooters at least). We don't pub, only play private.
