Generic mobile artstyle vs generic mobile artstyle.. oh noes


It would be fine if it was just the style, as the original artist said. It turns out it's the same map with the same items in the same places in the same style. That's the issue.

But it's not. They look vaguely similar. That's it. Certainly not enough to ever win anything in court. Boo hoo, someone is using the same generic video game art style that I used. I stole it first!

Had plenty of fun with Titanfall when it first launched. With the exception of some VERY minor dabbling with Halo on 360, it's the only online FPS I've played since Quake 3 Arena and Enemy Territory, really.

A major gripe I have with these new games, is matchmaking causing a complete lack of community. Back in the day with dedicated servers, even though they'd be empty half the day, you'd eventually get to know the people you played with. In a game like Titanfall, while finding full games is as easy as pressing the PLAY button, there's just an endless stream of random faces to play, which gets boring for me fast. I suppose if you get really into it you could join the competition scene (which I assume exists in some form) but I was never *that* into it.

Somebody just needs to buy an Unreal license and kickstart a 24-64 player online shooter featuring vehicles, destructibility, and NO FUCKING DLC. Open it up for anybody to host their own server and anybody who has an Unreal license can make maps for it. (Hey, they're only $20 a month) Instant success.

Men don't constantly hear discussion on their looks.

Because women never judge men based on looks, right?


Hollywood isn't like this

Ahahahahahahahaha! How can you even say that with a straight face?

that tooth thing is pretty damn funny considering dentists have been trying to say remineralisation is fictional/not real/hocus pocus new age shit for years now

fucking morons.. way too many "doctors" out there are just clueless assholes - blind cogs in the pharma machine

They're not clueless, they are money-hungry. Cavities are a staple money-maker for dentists.

And Transformers movies are hilarious. As long as you drink first and spend the entire movie laughing at how bad Bay has become. He's really just a satire version of his past self. The third movie is particularly funny. So many bad shots.

Check out Pain and Gain. Never would have guessed it was a Bay movie. Quite enjoyable, and based on actual events...



I did see that one, and I was pleasantly surprised. It wasn't a great movie, but it was very watchable. But man, you finish it and realize how stupid some people really are. I read up about the guys it is based on, and they really were that dumb.

There is a major flaw in the game's main character which destroys any sense of realism for me. He's supposed to be some vigilantly, right? He's running around fighting/stopping crime, right? So why is it ok (in his mind) to go and commit the exact same (or worse) crimes? The guy is a total hypocrite. How did the developers not realize this?

They did. It's mentioned several times by news commentators and other characters. He's a flawed character.

Personally I find him way more likeable than someone like Kratos, whose whole tortured existence is his own fault. Or the guy in the second Prototype who caused 90% of his own problems by being an asshole to everyone he met.

Played a few more missions and still on the fence. Got to the tank guy and couldn't go any further, as once again, no one was around...

I'll shoot you a friend X7. I don't multi much at all, but I'm always curious to see what other are playing/achievements, etc...

Hopefully they'll do another weekend later...


Beta is in July. I think you have to pre-order for that, though. I'm kind of waiting to see if they do a Collector's Edition, because I have a sickness.

I don't multi much either except in games that are all multi, like this or Driveclub when it comes out. I get all my multiplayer fun from the PC. ESO, BF4. Except Watch Dogs, because that just happens.

i don't like how that always in Bungie games you have to shoot hundreds of bullets into an enemy just to kill it. kind of like Gears of War, it may be more challenging but it just gets boring for me after a while and tiring on the hands, especially shooting with the new trigger buttons on the new controllers that have more resistance when you press them. also with all the crap that hovers on screen i find it hard to even see enemies properly like with the triangles, names and health bars hovering over enemies, and the hit point numbers that show every time you shoot an enemy. sort of like a mess of graphics. the last two bosses in the alpha are just ridiculously long also, and take forever to beat.

The triggers don't really bother me. You don't have to crank them all the way back to shoot, so you can feather them very lightly over and over to get accurate burst fire. If that's tiring on your hands, you may need some sort of exercise. I can shoot 1K+ rounds out of real guns every range trip and not have tired hands. You'd better believe there's a lot more resistance in real triggers than on game controllers.

In the alpha you start at level 4 and you can only level to 8, so it's pretty limited. You can't really get a sense of what the story is.

How about how it is presented, that was more my wondering?

The limited story info in the alpha is presented by your Ghost, which is some small floating ball/robot/entity thing that floats by you for light and exposition.

After spending the last 2 hours in a 3 man group taking on missions and then the final alpha boss, I have to say that I am going to pre-order this. It's just a lot of fun. Reminds me of Borderlands playing co-op.

Does it have a story being acted out like BL's? Another part of BL's that I like is the over the top characters and how it all is easily followable by them talking to us in the top right as we continue to move and fight. I still credit that was the magic that is System Shock 2 back in the day. Telling the story as we continue to play, not stop get story, go play, stop get story. Does Destiny deliver its story in a BL fashion as well? And what is the term we used to describe story telling like this?

Well, the overall story is given in the trailer. The Traveler shows up...well, to save time, watch the Fifth Element. That's pretty much what it sounds like. You've come back to Earth after a long time, and you're trying to piece together what happened. We only got one "story" mission in the alpha, and it's very early on. Then you go open world mode, looking for missions. When you make level 6, you can do the co-op "Strike" mission, which is a bunch of boss fights.

In the alpha you start at level 4 and you can only level to 8, so it's pretty limited. You can't really get a sense of what the story is.

I was playing the alpha on my ps4 last night. It's a pretty good game (although not surprisingly, it's very very much like halo) but I can't hit jack squat with the controller. Needs mouse badly. So I really hope they release this for the PC at some point.

I was also surprised to see it's not super linear like halo either. There's all these side areas you can explore besides just the main path.

Just finished the first mission. The two bozos I was grouped with just ran around, and I ended up soloing the mission myself. This was not pretty, as like you, I can't hit the broadside of a barn. Eventually finished it (took forever), and only died one time.

Extremely pretty game. Shooting mechanics seemed ok. If there was a cover mechanic, I've not found it yet, and it would have been useful instead of side strafing all the time. Also would have been handy to be able to make myself available for people to join, instead of being stuck trying to solo something.

Overall, I see the potential, but need more time with it. Are there squad commands I missed, like "help, I'm trying to solo the boss, get the fuck over here"?


You should add me on PS4! I was playing this morning. I was very surprised how easy it was to shoot stuff until I realized how much the game was helping me aim. Oh, you're close enough, here, we'll just center the dot on the bad guy for you. Still pretty fun though.

But, yeah. Some giant cannon thing kicked the crap out of me. One guy was AFK behind a rock the whole time, another left the boss area, and the other guy was shooting all the adds but not the boss. I didn't even get him down to half health before the timer ran out.

Trying to figure out the difference between classes too. I have a hunter and Warlock, and so far the only noticeable difference is special abilities. Weapons and armor are the same.

Gotta say I'm liking the charity drum-offs a lot more than I should. And while I realize it's for charity, my money is on Smith to kill it and play circles around Ulrich.

Now Jimmy Chamberlin vs. Chad Smith on the other hand would be something epic.

Drum-offs are cool and everything, but Lars Ulrich is the biggest douchebag to ever grace the kit. A thousand charity drum-offs wont change this.

Like panbient said, I appreciate it's for a charity. If it was just them goofing around, I'd eventually lose interest. But for charity is nice, and I hope it goes well...

Was hoping Will might eventually branch out into golf/tennis/cook offs, etc...


Travis Barker would make them look stupid....

Yeah, but you can keep escalating all day until you eventually get to people like Mike Portnoy, Mike Mangini, Terry Bozio, Neil Peart, Mike Terrana...I mean, there are tons of people out there better than these guys.

"Uncharted 4" To Be The Last In The Series?

While I understand wanting to go out on top, I can't help but think that if this is the case, we'll have a reboot in 5-10 years. You don't ignore that kind of cash flow/success forever...

edit:
30 Years Later, Gamers Find New "Infinite 1-Up" Trick in Mario.

Ok, I'm only 2 minutes into the video, and the original 3-1 trick is a lot simpler...


I'm kind of thinking that while Naughty Dog may want to be done with Uncharted, Sony will probably keep it going.

I don't know how anyone can trust EA at this point...who are these people who preorder and think "it'll be better this time!"?


Well, Dragon Age 3 is a double-whammy. EA AND Bioware.
