News Comments > Dawn of War II - Retribution Announced

Great news for Dawn of War II fans! Picking this up for the SP. Unfortunately, I'm not a big fan of the direction they took with DoW2. For mp, I'll stick with Company of Heroes and DoW1.

I have to admit, at first I wasn't too pleased with the way they handled Dawn of War 2, but after playing it I got hooked and found it entirely engrossing, and all other RTS games seem old in comparison.

I don't understand though how you can like the gameplay in Company of Heroes but not Dawn of War 2. They're pretty similar.

News Comments > Warhammer 40K Space Marine Using Steamworks, Not GFWL

I always thought it was strange that Dawn of War II required BOTH Steam and Windows Live. I'm glad they went with Steam, and I'd love to see them release a patch for DoW2 to remove the GFWL part of it and only require Steam, but something tells me that would never happen.

Or maybe after the countdown we get another countdown.

So would that be... the FINAL countdown?

1. Re: More Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Capacity Coming Mar 11, 2010, 20:54 Slink
 
It's been over week, and I still don't see pings any lower than 100. Gameplay is borderline unplayable on some servers... and this isn't even talking about how unoptimized the engine is.

I thought this had a beta?

What's the problem with the FOV? I just bound the "W" key in the .INI file so that every time I hit it (so every time I walk forward), it sets the FOV to 90. Works perfect.

Be prepared to have to re-download many games from scratch if you opt in to the beta.

Everything works fine here...

A sure sign a game is going to suck when they have to pile on free shit pre-release.

I've heard really nothing but good stuff about BFBC2, honestly. The only bad thing being the lack of prone, which I don't really care about.

News Comments > No More WoW Tiered Raids Before Cataclysm
8. Re: No More WoW Tiered Raids Before Cataclysm Feb 14, 2010, 18:53 Slink
 
They'd better have something up their sleeves for summer boredom or they are going to see alot of subs being canceled until Cataclysm.

You hit the nail on the head. Blizzard knows that this might cause some people to ragequit. However, they also know that those people will be back for Cataclysm.

I'd rather see Blizzard focus more on the rest of the player base, instead of just the high-end raiders. It's good to see they're not quite pandering to them much anymore.

Old Republic in 2011 or FY2011? There's a big difference...

"Spring 2011". When they say Spring, they are referring to calendar years. Fiscal years are Q1, Q2, Q3, Q4.

A fiscal year in some companies can actually be the year ahead of the current calendar year, so FY2011 is actually 2010. I was just confused because Blue wrote "Ricctiello also listed fiscal year 2011 highlights..."

The beta of Global Agenda is fun if you're into MMOFPS.
I'm not even sure if you can call it a Mmofps..but it's really good.

I'm hearing very mixed things about GA. What's the max player count in battles? Is it team-based or just all-out fragfests?

Um, you destroyed one Reaper/Reaver. Out of like, hundreds. The ending is basically "Hey, good job! Now go out and kill the rest plz kthx." There was also the whole Cerberus sidestory which I'm assuming will be concluded in ME2.

Except that, since they are on the other side of the universe, they needed the Citadel to get to us. Now that the Mass Relay part of the Citadel has been destroyed/disabled, the Reapers can't get to us.

Yes, they're still "out there" but without the Citadel's relay they're really not a threat. Yeah, they can eventually get back to us, but it'll take centuries - which is why your character at the end says something like "And when they come, we'll be ready for them."

The "beta" (demo) of this game felt like a budget title, and I don't think I'll buy it until it's appropriately priced that way.

People who call it the "worst game ever made" clearly haven't played it. Yeah, it wasn't life-changing or anything, but it was actually fairly entertaining.
