So whats the deal with this game then? I thought Bad Company was just a single player Battlefield game which to me sounds pretty silly. Whys there so much hype? Its just gonna be another consolised POS port

News Comments > Ships Ahoy - Tales of Monkey Island
8. Re: Ships Ahoy - Tales of Monkey Island Jul 8, 2009, 03:24 Bilbo
 
Hey guys

I love all this Monkey Island stuff, its happened so fast hasn't it? I was wondering if anyone knows if it will be possible to buy boxed versions of the episodes and the special edition.
I'm really interested in seeing how the "new" generation of gamers find Monkey Island, I have the feeling they won't be into it. It makes me laugh to see you can now have 3 hints for the puzzles in the remake with the third hint showing you exactley where to go, this spoils the game but I guess you gotta give the console kiddies some way of completeing the game quickly so they don't get frustrated.

Also with these digital download things, it's hard massive news as lucasarts was saying is it? I mean the games were great back in the days 15 years ago or however long it was but theyre just going to look so dated when you try to play them now. I've tried to play old games on my new pc and its seriousley hard work, playing the game in a tiny window because the resolution is so low. What we need is a team remaking these games in special edition like this new monkey island that would work. Monkey Island 2 special edition please!

I kind of brushed this game under the table after trying to play it upon release it simply wrecked my stystem and when it did run it ran so badly it made me not want to play it.

Can anyone tell me if they have improved the performance or will it be forever screwed? I've got a dual core 2.4 gig cpu, 2 gig ram and 8800 768 meg GTS card. Anyone running on a similar system, I really want to play this game!

Sad how rockstar have fallen from grace, never mind PC gaming is getting more unique titles I guess.

Sadly this game isn't out int he UK till next month

All this hype cracks me up everyones complaining about a game without DRM being pirated and some pirates crashing a server for a short period of time upon launch? Seriousley whats the big deal of that, DRM doesnt work for shit remember SPORE!
Gamespot reviews cannot be taken seriousley by anyone anymore, they are the most corrupt gaming website, remember all the people quitting when one of the main guys got fired for writing an honest review of a game which paid them shed loads of cash in advertising. This is all down to cheap ass fake so called games journalists trying to make a good story no matter if its true or not, Kotaku is and always will be crap.


Can anyone comment on the single player campaign?

News Comments > 2008: The Year in Lists, Part 16
9. Re: 2008: The Year in Lists, Part 16 Dec 27, 2008, 04:31 Bilbo
 
Here here, these lists are a big load of steaming cow pat. Nearly all console games I personally rate a game highly which tries to do something different if not perfectly all these games are clones. I'd say mount and blade would be up there in my list as would savage 2. But its been quite a poor year for Pc gaming in my experience, ports and a lot of non events, rool on 2009 if darkfall is half what they promiced it should be the next big thing, well thats coming from a hopeful old 97 Ultima Online player.

Still no single player campaign? I really like the look and idea of Sins but I'm not really interested in online gaming so much and playing skirmishes against the CPU in my experience is quite dull. I mean some of the best games I have ever played are the Homeworld series, absolutely fantastic and great storytelling to boot, this looks like homeworld but they missed out the biggest part imo.

Isn't that quite a high spec pc tho? Ive got an 2.4 dual core, 8800 GTX 768 meg version and 2 gig ram on Windows XP would it be fun to play it or not?

Cheers

I didn't like team fortress 2 at all, found it to be a kids game compared to the original team fortress which I loved. Is this in a similar vain or something? I'm an old school pc gamer who hardly plays games anymore because theyre mostly junk and uninspired, this game however looks kinda cool. I'm very tempted just to buy it as theres so much hype surrounding it at the moment, people either seem to love it or hate it. If anyone here could write a little non-biased review that would be great. I'm not interested in how much it costs or what you think is "value for money" as this is subjective, so come on someone tell me what the actual gameplay is like?

Your main problem is you were playing gears of war one of the most over hyped crap games evevr made. In fact I feel this game was pure piss and dissolved from drunken developers crap.

3. Re: Alien Breed Revival Oct 31, 2008, 15:19 Bilbo
 
Are you kidding me? Alien Breed was absolutely f*cking awesome, very fond memories from my childhood. If they can do what the team who re-did bionic command rearmed did this will be totally sweet. Its interesting that you can basically remake a classic with so called "basic" gameplay ideas put decent graphics with it and watch it be a hit 10 odd years later. In my opinion modern gameplay is still very simplistic and dumbed down in much the same way mass entertainment focuses on celebrity culture and reality tv.
Remaking these classic games with modern graphics is nothing but a good idea, please remake quakeworld, deus ex, popoulas and syndicate thankyou.

13. Hand to hand combat Oct 28, 2008, 04:23 Bilbo
 
Hi

Can anyone confirm for me that you can do hand to hand fighting like in the previous games, you know like use a knife or boxing gloves etc. Ive not heard anyone mention this yet and I'm intrigued to see if they have this in as I really enjoyed the hand to hand combat in the previous games.

1. Crispy Gamer strikes again Sep 11, 2008, 03:14 Bilbo
 
Blue how is this newsworthy? His guide to playing RTS games better is stupid. Such points include not playing the single player because it won't make you better? I disagree single player should always be played first to get to know the units you should always do this before taking on a real player. Also another point is not to try supreme commander as he claims it is too hard? lol whut?
This Crispy gamer guy really needs putting down, the absolute dribble he is typing should not be read by anyone over the age of 12.

John please forgive it wasn't a personal attack by any means I was one of the original 97 players in UO but not by any means a PKER I just long for the old days or something next generation to come close.
I guess my frustration comes from a long line of WoW (everquest kill 100 rats) clones. We need a MMORPG like UO was with modern generation engine of course. Combat is all well and good imo but thats 20% of the gameplay the rest is player politics and economics
