Its always fun to watch the predominantly ANTI BLIZZARD Blues News crowd rally behind the latest douchebaggy MMO that comes out that is supposed to be the grand savior of a dying genre then later turn against it in scorn.

I give you all about...3 months

This totally won't happen this time... GW2 is different in so many way (sic)...

Seriously though... There are many factors... Such as people thinking Rift/SWTOR aren't successful with (insert X subs) when WoW has 21034972398460... I would expect GW2 to have less of a dent on WoW than the other two mentioned, and for a much shorter period, but I also expect it'll be a huge success : )

This game gets dumber every day

An MMO, that doesn't even charge a monthly subscription, offers ways of transferring your character to another place, and it's dumb? Jeez, one of the major complaints of most MMO players is that they can't transfer a character and GW2 will have it at/near launch, sounds "smart" to me.

It's just too bad it's not what they claimed early on, but I understand the desire for balance... at least for balancing casual players; dedicated players in other games transfer across servers all the time for various reasons, including pvp imbalance (to get away from or to generate)...

Have to agree - this is looking more like Crysis 2.1 (sadly IMO) than the original Crysis (and Warhead somewhat). IE: Big beautiful levels with human opponents where multiple approaches (like stealth) could be used tactically to approach/finish the level(s).

Looks more like the shoot/blow everything up that all the lil kiddies (ie: the current target audience for pubs/devs...) like nowadays...

Would be great to hear more "Die Mr Yankee Zankee..." comments from human opponents AI in Crysis 3...

I thought the 'lil kiddies' were the ones keeping Call of Dooty and Modern Borefare up in the top 10? The community really needs to make up it's mind...

Btw, I haven't played any of the CoD/MW variants, but I like the word Dooty...

I did enjoy the aliens in the Crysis series and can't understand the 'crying' about it... If you want pure human enemies, why not play one of the games above?

I bet they are going with something along the lines of "part of them were immune or hiding out of reach of the cloud".

Best way I can see them making this game better, instead of going a bit more downhill, would be if the dome is the whole level. IE no loads or cuts from one side to another. If they could or even tried to pull that off I think the people that dispised the 2nd game might shut up a bit.

I was never a big fan of this feature in say, GTA, or some other boring games, but I really enjoyed it in Prototype (and some others you could fly/glide)... Running from one end of the city to the other can be fun... Though I'd rather queue for a random dungeon... anyhow...

I guess, for me, part of the fun in travelling in prototype (other than the aforementioned 'flying'), is crushing and throwing cars as I go... : )

Been playing it for an hour.

The hype around this game still boggles the mind...

Agreed, it's diablo 2 all over again with slightly better graphics and an auction house with people trying to sell mundane white items for 500k gold.

Not only that but no longer can you build a character with stats, that's removed, and skills are unlocked for you as you go along, limited to a couple damage skills active at once? So much for skill trees and different builds. No lets just streamline it down so the masses of below level intelligence won't have to work for a decent set up.

Why does anyone still give a fuck about Blizzard? I just fail to understand.

Your comment fits, well, your comment, pretty well... Is this really the first time you've heard about the game?

I'm all for varied opinions... But this is like me talking about how bad hockey is, because of blah blah blah - I don't know anything about hockey ; )

Usual shit from EA, wont be buying it anyways.

Show me where EA touched you...

Seriously, EA make awesome games a lot of the time. This old hate is silly.
Name the last "awesome" game they made, then ask yourself what that game would've been like without EA's taint on the developer. Obviously it's a subjective thing to consider, and if you believe games like Dragon Age 2, Crysis 2 & Dead Space 2 are better than the originals, obviously we are of two separate minds on the matter. Either way, one look at your avatar and I can see you are a handsome chap, and therefore I feel strangely insecure about my own manliness, therefore I have no choice but to forfeit my opinion to yours.

Hmmm... Didn't like either Dragon Age... Enjoyed both Dead Space's about equally, and enjoyed both (all three) Crysis (Crysii?)...

Maybe this is why my distaste for EA isn't as prevalent around these parts...

Was EA not involved with Dragon 1, Dead Space 1, or Crysis 1/1.5?

Despite claims to the contrary by the usual suspects it will take about an hour, maybe an hour and a half if you take your time.

Anyone that says it will take under 2 hrs to explore everywhere, listen & read all quest and flavour text, loot everything, etc in the beta is a lying sack of shit.

I've beat the beta in 4 player coop in 45min. We raced from beginning to end, killing as little as possible, looted only what was in front of me and Blue, talked to nobody, skipped all quest text/info, didn't train the Blacksmith, etc.

It's a great way to have zero fun at all.



While I'm generally a completionist myself, an extra 30 mins isn't going to change anyone's perception. End of the day the chunk of the game they put up for a beta, is short in comparison to the full game. Not sure why you're getting your I <3 Blizzard gstring in a twist about it.

I would so buy an I <3 Blizzard gstring if they sold them on the battle.net store... Just saying...

Despite claims to the contrary by the usual suspects it will take about an hour, maybe an hour and a half if you take your time. It's fun but fleeting, just enough to give you a feel for the basics.

You can do some replays to up the play time of course. My favorite class was the Wizard followed closely by the Barb. Monk was pretty cool as well though hes balanced a little weirdly.

As with, every single thing in life... Your 'mileage may vary'... Don't need to be snarky about again disagreeing with other people's also-nearly-useless estimates...

I got at least 2-3 hours of 'enjoyment' out of my initial play through, because I'm all about 'defeating the fog (of war)', so if you play like that, and kill every mob and (nearly every) breakable item along the way, it could take that long...

My second playthrough, with my boss (his first), was all about following the 'path of least resistance', and it was over so quickly... And he commented, when the 'you beat beta' line came up, 'wtf, that's it?'... I giggled (yes, like a schoolgirl)...

On the plus side, and I'm sorry guys, that my comment isn't immediately bashing EA or what not, it's not 30s of branding with 5s of 'teaser'... More like 6s of branding out of 18s total, but still, things are looking up : )

invert horizontal mouse option
Ok, I gotta ask. And this is coming from someone who always reverses mouselook (aka vert)...

Maybe their mental frame of reference is 3rd person, so pulling the interface left moves the focus right? Like controlling a studio camera.

I used to know someone who used a mouse rotated 180°, even in Windows.

Like how when OS X Lion came out, and it switched everyone's scroll functionality to the opposite, because now you're 'pushing the page up', instead of 'scrolling your view down'...

Also, I've seen hundreds of games over the years with horizontal invert right under vertical invert... It's like those weird left-handed people...

Why bother with Diablo III Beta. Played Diablo III Beta till the end of Act I. But, I found Path of Exile to be a much better experience. I tried Path of Exile for the first time, when they opened up the beta as a buy-in a couple of weeks ago.

(and: I am not associated with the developers).

Just my 2 cents....


Michael

Wow man... if my Diablo 3 beta went to the end of Act I, I'd be all over that...

As for Path... Tried the open weekend, it was generic as hell... Got into the beta like two days earlier, and just haven't gotten around to trying it more...

Yeah, but we won't be buying the game because of the online DRM but we still wanted to try it out.

I expect the release to be less than smooth but the DRM doesn't bother me, aside from not having a pause function. I probably wouldn't even be getting it if I didn't have a bunch of game credits on Amazon that were set to expire.

Hitting escape pauses D3 when solo... Forgetting to do it, and alt tabbing... Well, that was my first death heh...

Crytek has an excellent game engine but they really lack in the creativity department.

Developing a new game franchise is expensive but I think they should have taken Crysis in a whole new direction rather than rehashing crysis 2 again with a few improved visuals.

It sounds like they're going to diversify the environments a little more this time but that's only part of the problem, the "aliens" are so generic and boring in this game it makes "Space Invaders" feel epic by comparison.

The nano suit is fun for single player mayhem but doesn't work for multiplayer, it would be like making a Superman game and then having everyone in mutiplayer be Superman.

Good luck Crytek


epic Space Invaders... Exaggeration is fun : )

As for nano suit MP... Deus Ex... I enjoyed the MP in the first game... One of my few fond memories of the game actually, and ya, it had to do with stealth/invis...

Two things are inherently OP in every multi player game... and likely more than two, but I'm focusing on healing and stealth/invisibility... Though perhaps you're alluding to the speed/slow thing... But that's easy enough ; )

Anyhow... I don't get all the complaining about using a bow... Tons of movies throw mini-nukes onto small objects and projectiles, so even without going that far, an arrow, strapped with something explosive, can do a good bit of damage, even to a heavy ; ) C4 is a good candidate ; ) Better than curving bullets : )

And personally, if it's not on Steam, it's an unlikely purchase... Not because I'm boycotting Origin... Simply because it's not enough of a hit for me to do the extra (although minimal) effort... Which I do for other games I want to play (Diablo 3, Guild War 2 both already pre-purchased).
