Cool trailer, but the graphics engine itself is just okay, IMO. That being said, it's good enough (and has to handle a far draw distance), and so it will all come down to the gameplay.

One thing that concerns me is that there's no endgame, so I'm wondering if anyone in the beta can comment how the missions and gameplay work. It's not like Tribes or BF3 where there are missions with goals that end, and you restart. It just goes on forever.

This whole quest for 'endgame' is actually one of the reasons MMOs fail in general, and why people pine for Sandbox MMOs but get all bent when it's given to them with no 'endgame'.

Planetside has never had a true 'endgame', it is meant as a tug-of-war fight between 3 factions over an entire planet's worth of continents, you rank up you get more nifty things to immediately use as time goes on based upon the situation of the fight. More places held, more resources received, more things can be done...

As for those in beta, I'm sure there's an NDA that would prohibit that from happening.

[sarcasm]You mean this isn't actual gameplay? Gosh! I feel so abused and lied to![/sarcasm]

You trolls can fuckoff, take your ball home and don't come back. We're going to enjoy the hell out of this and the thought of you sitting around sulking while we have fun only adds to it.

Welp, once the first post about serious launch issues or another Sony network database breach goes up on Blue's, I'm gonna unzip and jack off like a bunny on crack while imagining your stoned, stupid little face while you're sitting in the dump inside your trailer home, crying real tears of mega frustration over how you can't play.
Mark my words. Knowing SOE, I'll get to jack off until my weeny turns purple!


Someone seems to be compensating for something...you know, it might help to socialize with real people and you probably wouldn't have those issues.

Either that or you're really one screwed up person.

I'm interested in playing this...you should flesh it out.
It's definitely a potential growth area.

Only if they sub-contract the old Team Ninja and their jiggle-tech....

Hmm...that's a bit of an overstatement. I wonder what else you've been playing and how long is "a long time" for you.

I struggled to get DayZ working on steam (I'd bought ARMA 2 w/ the expansions on sale a while ago).

But, I managed to play for a while. The atmosphere was cool, but the clunky interface is really annoying. I can appreciate wanting something more involved and realistic than Modern Warfare and even BF2, but the Arma series has always seemed a weak alternative.

After dying a few times, I managed a round where I lived for maybe a half hour, got bored with no weapons and seeing no other players so I ran into a horde on purpose.

Now, seems like there's been another update and it's a chore to get everything working again. I realize its a tiny mod team in beta, but I'd give Day Z a thumbs down.


Updating isn't all that hard, nor is installing it...if you do have issues use a front-end like Six Updater

First thought of his was "Kinect" and if a game designer thinks of console gimmick crap when thinking about how to make a good game then you know he's got no clue as to how a real fresh innovative game is made.

While Kinect is kitschy at best, what was stated was to use Kinect Voice, which wouldn't really be a problem to me and I wouldn't chalk that as being a 'gimmick' considering the nature of the game he is talking about.

SWTOR, D3, and up-comming GW2 all suffer this same problem - people in droves give good solid feedback on the problems, and they are ignored because the devs think they know better.

That might be because by and large the players have absolutely no clue what they are talking about with their "feedback", and the vast majority is far from anything an actual developer can work with.

Intrigued about that Odin project. A 3D game from them? Could it be an ARPG in Dredmor's universe?

Could just picture Dredmor and Grimrock having an illegitimate child with that idea...

Single player is just something you can play by yourself. You get that, right? Whether or not it's just a simulation of a game's multiplayer mode doesn't mean a damned thing.

Uh...no, unless we're using some bastardization of the terminology here.

Yousaidwhat

Furthering that, somehow I missed something in the translation in that they considered the bot matches in BF2 (and prior) to be a single-player experience of sorts... Wtf

Haven't really been playing pc games for all that long, have you?

How can you say that bots on multiplayer maps creates a single-player experience? Last I saw, single-player games generally have, well, purpose other than to create an offline version of the online component....

So yea, I guess I'm brand new to this new-aged PC gaming stuff Hahaha_no

Anyone have any decent ones to add that are on amazon?

Super MNC is a great, if challenging, 3rd-person MOBA-style shooter that could only be considered Pay-2-Win if people think the other characters are unbalanced (which, in my opinion, they aren't), beyond that, there's World of Tanks and then mostly the grindy F2P-MMOs where most things aren't cosmetic to buy....

I am wondering if you can do the missions, or if it is just sandbox....

As of right now, it's just sandbox and a very haphazardly concocted version of that.

There's a lot of work left to do to make it anything more than a "get vehicle, get hijacked, get killed, respawn, repeat".

It's not race baiting if it's a fact.

Not sure you understand what the word 'fact' means when you start applying it to a very subjective opinion like that.

Not quite the same as barging in with flashbangs and guns though is it? (militarized police force)

It really doesn't matter what 'hardware' they use, they still barged in based upon circumstantial evidence that could've easily had absolutely nothing to do with the parties involved.

I wonder if anyone has really ever thought "ALL RIGHT! ANOTHER MOVIE TIE IN GAME! I LOVE THOSE!"

Depends on the game, the demographic, and the style...there are a couple that are pretty decent, alas, most people here are too old and don't have kids to enjoy them themselves.

More often than not, it's about getting the product out the door in time to match the movie release. Quality is sacrificed in the name of a tie in/quick buck. And sadly, people keep buying them...

Considering the movie is out in like August and this is just now announced, and shipping "this summer"? Yeah, that'll end well...


That's the caveat though, when publishers are pitching a product to coincide with the release of another. Most often you would get the red flag to stay away from tie-ins like that, but to lump them all together isn't the right view.

Speak for yourself junior, there's plenty in Ubi's library of games that are at the very least decent, and many of which that are great.
