Why is this twice as expensive on PC/Mac vs tablets?


Cause its $9.99 and you probably spent more on your lunch....

I'm sorry, Mr. Roddenberry. However, there are still many of us real Trek fans out there who abhor this schlock as you do and will not support it in any way, shape, or form...ever.

im not even a star trek fan, but this is just an abomination to what star trek is / was supposed to be.

also all of the actors in the new movies look like they have bumped their heads one too many times

Surely a "this is *way* better than what you suckers are going to buy" would have been more appropriate.

"Trailers depict footage of the demo version" could be taken to mean that the final release is actually better than the trailers!

it would only be logical to assume that a game would get better as it nears release, not worse. And at the very least contain the demo into the full product.

seeing as this si so successful, and since they have gotten out of the ocean and into the sky, lets hope that they keep going up higher, and eventually get into space itself for the next game. And they could call it system shock - and the bad guy could be a female AI. And it could have coop.


Btw is there an FOV slider?

News Comments > Battlefield 4 Teaser Trailer

I would dare say that planetside 2 is better - bf3 was for me felt like i was just getting shot by people I couldn't see. And I don't mind that if it is a sniper, but this was the most of the game. I stopped playing after 2 months. Where as I played the other battlefield games for years.
And also that Battlefield :Close Quarters expansion - that was just trying to be COD.

Once you are spoilt by a 500 player battle in planetside 2 its hard to go back to a 64 player or less game.

Not to mention EVERYTHING that annoys me about BF games is fixed in planetside 2.

For example, idiots stealing your vehicle - nope can't do that in ps2, you can even lock the vehicle or kick people out of it if you are waiting for your buddy or squad member.
Since all of the vehicles have to be bought with personal game points you don't a line of idiots camping the helicopter pad to either team kill you or to shoot an RPG to make your chopper crash on take off.
You also don't have any idiots parking a tank on the runway to make you crash on take off.

Not to mentiont here are admins constantly on the servers so any hackers, trolls or exploiters don't last very long.

They've actually thought about stuff from day one - and stuff that was a problem gets fixed all the time.

Also no ORIGIN


EDIT: the reason I stopped BF3 and didn't get any of the expansions was because of these little frustrating things. it was a trolls paradise.
That and some admins were sad losers - e.g. I got a repair tool kill on an admin (no primary ammo, and no time to reload pistol) and the admin kicked me. talk about cry baby.

I don't want to play a game full of people like this.

What's the fuckin point of this game? Cooping through a bunch of pointless missions?

Gee I dunno, maybe people like to play games because its fun? You could easily say that ALL games are pointless - and in reality yes they are. but its fun to play them, especially with a handful of friends and another handful of beer

And this game is REALLY quite fun, for starters its fast - well if you want it to be. Its a refreshing experience.


jacobvandy wrote on Mar 21, 2013, 14:33:
Lol, that's cute. It's just a bunch of crap on the screen obscuring your vision which everyone will disable, if they were even capable of running it in the first place (Herro, AMD?). Stuff like that has no place whatsoever in a competitive game unless you make it mandatory.

Its a coop / single player game. Some people with even AMD cards end up buying a low/medium end Nvidia card (or just keep their old one) to run physX.
Its a nice little bonus.

still not even close to the e3 demo they showed. the e3 demo just oozed quality. especially in hadleys hope, the lighting and and lightening is superb, it feels like a movie. but not even close in the actual game.

randy pitchford should spend less time being randy and more time being productive

Updating their graphics or just tweaking the AI won't fix this game. I bought ACM thinking it would be a survival-horror, but its not. They completely missed the point of every alien film, including Aliens. Its basically a disservice to fans and borderline insulting. The story is on par with a 12 year old writing Fan Fiction.

+1

its an action game, and the action itself is terrible lol

A little more structure, especially for unaffiliated loners, would be welcome. But over all it should still be up to the players to determine what they find strategically important, while perusing some kind of overarching goal.

playing the game with a good outfit and really good platoon leader makes all the difference.

a lot of leaders don't understand what makes the game fun for players - some will have you capture almost empty bases for hours if you are unlucky - there is strategic value there sure, but my god its as boring as euro truck simulator.

JohnBirshire wrote on Mar 13, 2013, 15:18:
My number one criticism of this game is that it was atrocious for newcomers. Thrown down in the middle of a fight with no clue how to even control their character made many people say "screw this" and quit immediately.

That's because every single first person shooter for the last 15 years or so has had the same default WASD and mouse aiming controls.

If you have never played a first person shooter fair enough, but the game spawns you at the warp gate where you can't die.

Still this VR training is a very nice addition since you can give all of those new weapons in an easy manner and with all of their upgrade options.

I gotta say, the graphics, animation and effects leave a lot to be desired.
Blind much?

Thats what I ask myself with people like you. I think its simple fanboyism, if such obvious things are not seen...
Animations often look far cheaper than before. Especially the generic ones. I could leave that as subjective, but looking at trees and ground textures, even someone as blind as you should see how shitty they look. Also bullet impact dust clouds are huge. Almost cant see your target anymore because of them. That auto eye contrast effect also sucks again and is only annoying. And the ancient scope effect is hated in the community already.

Just to name a few...


the animations are ok, but there is no animation blending like in some modern games so the transitions between them look stiff

edit i really hope the audio gets a make over before release too it's terrible in the alpha

This was an OUTSTANDING video!

Yeah but i wish he would stop talking in manner that makes it sound like comma's are full stops

Game looks super cool though. I will be raining death from the skies on release day!

I was very pumped to play this, but unfortunately after trying the BETA, I found the gameplay very underwhelming. It gets old REALLY fast, too.

The graphics are pretty sub par as well - although the smoke, explosion and blood effects are top notch.

yeah it's certainly no magicka

btw paradox are soon to release leviathan - which kinda looks like magicka crossed with navy ships and gratuitious space battles. - that actually looks fun.
