fix an issue, yeah ok

the titan mode in 2142 was better

In this Naval Strike mode they had to cut content due to console limitations that PC's don't have.

I'm not sure that's due to a console limitation, from the videos it seems the aircraft carriers are really cramped quarters with long tight corridors. Getting out of the carrier would just be a long boring walk back out again. It's really just conquest with a rush mini-game that you can play or not, it's it's not like 2142 where you actually had to blow up the reactor.

The real console limitation is that almost all the maps are designed around max 24 players on older consoles, they make no concessions for 64 player matches for modes like Rush. Unless the teams are stacked it's hard to get a win on the Rush maps.

Rush is supposed to be 32 players max. Server operators can set it higher, but it's not balanced for that many people. On the PC, the map sizes change based on population limits, up to a max of 32 people.

Everything always comes at one time. Listen, former Irrational, I'm trying to beat INfamous Second Son, I've still got some play time left in the new Metal Gear, Yoshi's Island, and there a damn backlog already. Oh, and The Walking Dead new episode. Oh, and..Oh, really? The new BF4 DLC was delayed? Yeah!

I just use my bluetooth phone earpiece for communication (Plantronics Voyager Legend) and my speakers for game sounds. If you don't have bluetooth built in to your pc, you can grab an Asus usb bluetooth adaptor for like $10 on Amazon or Newegg.

My new SB Z series card has a great directional mic for comms, but I have trouble hearing what people say back over my speakers with the game sounds.

maybe Blue's News will be updated by dogs in the future.

Blue could RFID everything, and then when Gunnar gets in range, have it auto post.

"Just ate my food."
"Just took a dump out back, watch your step."
"Naptime!"

And tell Gunnar he can post any time he likes!


Haha. "My name is Gunnar and my dad...SQUIRREL!"


PS - Just spent hours reading those work notes and then the roommate notes linked after them. Damn you!

if they really wanted to cut ties with the past -literally- they should just do a modern AC with tech out the wazoo. throw all the series conventions out the window and let a new reputable studio take a crack at it.

It'd be really cool if they did AC VI where you find out you've been in an Animus the whole time and it's like 2166. The world has been screwed, and you were trying to find out why even though Desmond seemed to have succeeded the world still pretty much ended. Out with muskets and swords, in with plasma guns and vibro knives. Environments from post apocalyptic towns and wilderness to one gleaming city that the Templars brutally dominate, to a space station where the Assassins have their secret base.

Otherwise, yeah, I'm bored with it too. Pirates saved IV, but this made me yawn.

How Not To Kill Yourself With Household Items.

They put cinnamon on the list, but not nutmeg. It's actually possible kill yourself with a few teaspoons of nutmeg.

Did not know that. Of course, if you need to be told not to consume 4 tablespoons of Nutmeg, you're probably the guy that needs to be told not to point a loaded gun at your own head too.

But Tesla had no clue how to generate it, did he?

WTF then. The email I got says:
We are writing to provide you advance notice that the price of your Prime membership will be increasing. The annual rate will be $99 when your membership renews on June 4, 2014.

I'm guessing that this isn't your first year of Prime, and those of us who are new members get the lower renewal fee.
When I joined Prime last Fall, I was told when my $79 renewal would be... Increasing that now could break the contract.

No, been a prime member since...uh, when did they start offering it? Probably shortly after that. It's been longer than 5 years, though, because when I started college again I got to get the discounted student rate.

They've been experimenting with used games at Walmarts in Texas (or at least at the ones near Fort Hood). They didn't understand the value of games though, so they would offer like $5 as a minimum for games hoping to turn them around for $10. Apparently someone decided to go around and buy up every used copy of all the crappy Burger King games they could find and sell them to Walmart... so they'd have like 20 copies of Sneak King used... trying to sell them for $10. Comedy gold.

Yeah, Walmart employees are always conscientious and knowledgeable, adn because they are being paid so well you know they will make an effort to...

Yeah, who am I kidding? Fuck Walmart, both because they are a plague on society and because this is MY business, you soulless bastards!

Got an email from Amazon stating that my 2014 membership payment would still be $79 and that the $99 for existing members doesn't start until 2015.

That's only if your membership renews before the price goes up. Unfortunately mine expires in June, so my renewal will be $99. I think I'm going to gift myself a $79 one though.

Not according to Amazon

Dear Jeremy Star,

We are writing to provide you advance notice that the price of your Prime membership will be increasing in 2015. Your 2014 annual renewal will remain at the original price of $79. On June 9, 2015, your membership will renew at $99/year.

Even as fuel and transportation costs have increased, the price of Prime has remained the same for nine years. Since 2005, the number of items eligible for unlimited free Two-Day Shipping has grown from one million to over 20 million. We also added unlimited access to over 40,000 movies and TV episodes with Prime Instant Video and a selection of over 500,000 books to borrow from the Kindle Owners' Lending Library.

For more information about your Prime membership, visit our Prime membership page.

Sincerely,

The Amazon Prime Team

Smart pistol is bullshit. Period. You can defend it all you like, but we all know it's bullshit.

You are wrong. It is quite difficult to use against enemy pilots unless they are oblivious. You have to be pretty damn sneaky to use it for anything other than creep farming. It's basically what this game has instead of witchblading, and it's much more fair than that ever was.

shihonage wrote on Mar 16, 2014, 07:50:
My point was that I miss games which weren't made for idiots (COD/Titanfall), and weren't simplistic, sloppy-coded garbage(Tribes:Ascend). They had multiple paths to victory, which suffocated hackers even with working aimbots.

Titanfall is a game that introduces multiple paths to victory to team deathmatch. That you somehow hadn't noticed that proves that what Trevellian said is correct, and everything you type about Titanfall is a waste of keystrokes.

No, YOU are wrong, hur dee der de dur.

If you are getting killed regularly by the smart pistol, you do suck at the game. It takes ages for the thing to lock on, it's only good for ambushing pilots and killing grunts. It's just a beginner weapon that helps people get into the game, that's it.

Can I be cool liek all the kids and just scream WRONG!

I disagree. I have tried out the smart pistol and whipped the shit out of everybody with it. It locks on pretty damn fast, and the entire middle of the screen is one giant killzone. Added bonus - it fires just as fast as a sub gun without locking on an does more damage! Yeah!

Fanboi defense away!

"I suck at the game and im going to cry hacks." That's all I got out of the last few posts. Keep making up excuses for yourselves. There will always be someone better than you. Especially people who have been playing COD for years and are already used to the aiming mechanics in this game because of it. Get over it. I place in the top 3 almost 75% of my games played (this is a stat you can look up in game BTW) and probably about 30% of those placings were MVP. In all that time I have MAYBE been suspicious of ONE person for hacking. But apparently you guys run into them regularly. I find that incredibly difficult to believe.

If you don't like the game. That's fine. Don't like it. But dont make up bullshit like "everyone else is hacking" because you suck as a reason to give to other people. Its pretty pathetic. And this isn't the only game I've seen people do this with here. Just stop.

Blah blah blah, I THINK I'M AWESOME. That's all I got out of your bullshit. Respawn has admitted there are a ton of cheaters right now, so piss off.

Also, I rarely complain about cheating in games. I recognize that people are better than me, and I laugh when everyone in BF4 whines about this guy or that guy cheating. No, they're probably just better than you.

However, I have watched people in Titanfall cross an entire map in a split second, and have seen a bunch of people popping headshots with pistols and subguns from across the map with regularity. Like, every kill.
