News Comments > Black Mesa Released
69. Re: Black Mesa Released Sep 14, 2012, 22:08 pacbowl
 
Downloading at the moment, but am still confused on the qualitative/quantitative differences between Black Mesa and Half-Life Source...? Like, for instance, what makes this better than HL Source?

Half-Life Source is just the same HL game but ported to a newer engine. (same textures, maps, environments, etc..) Except for the underlying engine there is no difference between HL and HL:S.

Black Mesa however is a complete remake (re-imagining?) of Half Life. The modders basically re-made HL from scratch. They made new models, new maps, new textures and added certain creative liberties (like there is a new window and office in the short hallway where Barney lets you in right after you get off the opening tram ride) so while it's not exactly the same, it's close enough.

I have a feeling that any hack-n-slash game that resembles Diablo at all will do very well at this point. Until they do something to fix it, D3 can do nothing but go further into the gutter.

Apparently it's Free2Play, let's just hope they do it right like Team Fortress 2 instead of Pay2Win.

News Comments > No TrackMania 2 Boxed or Steam Release (Yet); Media Blowout
25. Re: No TrackMania 2 Boxed or Steam Release (Yet); Media Blowout Aug 15, 2011, 03:05 pacbowl
 
I love the LOL and Very Short servers, sometimes. Some of them can be very entertaining once you get the "trick" down, but a lot of the time some maps have shortcuts which will shave several seconds off your time, even if you run it as intended. What really grinds my gears are the maps that have no clear route to take, like you pull out of a loop or those wall-high turns and there's no way to tell where to go next. Just a big open area and if you don't happen to be following someone who's played it before you go in the entirely wrong direction.

IMO they need to clear up the confusion between all the versions. They have Trackmania United, Trackmania Forever, Trackmania Nations, Trackmania Sunrise and Steams Trackmania Nations Forever, all of which are a mix of paid and free versions. It can be very confusing for someone new to the series to find out what exactly they are getting without researching it first. Here's hoping it's not that way with TM2. And I hope track designers create more than a bunch of full-speed stadium maps.

I know everyone hates EA, but in this area would you expect any other company to act differently? If the game is still selling, there's obviously an incentive to keep the servers running. But would a different publisher keep running servers for a 6 year old racing game that's mostly played offline?

The problem isn't that they aren't running their own servers, it's that they aren't allowing anyone to run private servers either. If I buy BF2142 and want to host my own public BF2142 server then I should be able to for as long as I feel like it. If EA doesn't want to host the master server list then fine, but don't prevent another party from doing so.

I don't know where people are getting the idea this is a console port. Sure, they may have added some options for consoles but it sure plays and feels like every Source engine game going all the way back to HL2.

To bad they removed the multi from both DS1/2.

Edit: Multi - Both Internet and LAN versions are removed. Though, rumor on the Steam board is that there is a way to re-enable.

Are you fucking serious? Really? I had MUCH more fun running through DS1 with a couple friends than I EVER did SP. God, Fuck that. Shit that really pisses me off, even LAN? That makes me want to punch someone. I was thinking about preordering 3 but fuck them then.

If it's not obvious, yeah I'm upset. Half of the fun of the DS series was easily in MP.

I played the hell out of the demo they had. It's fun for a simcity type game but once you get past the learning "hump" of the few first levels it gets really easy. Might as well play Cityville on Facebook for free at that point.

The Half-Life 2 source code wasn't even compilable into anything resembling what you would consider a playable build.

I beg to differ, I got many hours of enjoyment out of it. If you didn't spend 10+ hours in the physics map with the plinko machine then you're crazy. It even had the glue gun function that would later show up in gary's mod.

Man.. I had soooooooo much fun with that and was pretty bummed when they didn't have anything like it in the release.

Volunteers or not... a Vapor reward is warranted, in this case, and IMO.
What did one mod team do to earn the scorn of a major tech publication?

Well they did set the bar pretty high in claiming to completely re-do the original HL with the source engine. (and I don't mean the HL port into source from Valve)

I've been chomping at the bit for this one to come out too.

..it must be the gameplay right?

Minecraft is similar to Infiniminer, which is similar to Manic Digger, which is similar to Cubelands, which is similar to Roblox, which on the high end is similar to Cube 2. Minecraft is just the latest to go mainstream with an actual survival mode. Not to mention it's lots of fun.
