Ubi wouldn't pull this shit. Large companies know they run the risk of getting sued for fat sacks of cash money if they even minutely or accidentally fuck with another business, even if nobody actually cares, just because the deep pockets are there to be raided. Personality is something you can only afford to have if you're poor and unemployed.

News Comments > Battlefield 4 "Netcode" Patch
8. Re: Battlefield 4 Jun 3, 2014, 20:05 007Bistromath
 
I can't remember when or what for, but at some point, my roommate and I decided that air quotes weren't enough. Obviously, we escalated to double air quotes, with four fingers.

But the stupidity of the industry is boundless; we soon found doublequotes insufficient. So, we invented catquoting: using all five fingers of both hands, alternating them like when a cat kneads your lap.

Always remember to put "netcode" in catquotes.

EDIT: Oh jesus, I'm sorry! I kept getting error 500. I thought the post wasn't going through.

I can't remember when or what for, but at some point me and my roommate decided that air quotes weren't good enough for something. So, we of course did double air quotes, with four fingers. But the stupidity of this industry is boundless; soon that wasn't enough. So, we just use our whole hands, alternating them like when a cat kneads you.

This is a really interesting idea, but the execution leaves something to be desired. What I actually see in that video is switching between several genres of mostly boring phone/retro games, presented in a horrible art style.

Has anyone tried this yet? I really liked Bastion, but $20 is high for a game with no demo.
If anyone has anything bad to say about Transistor, they're wrong and probably ugly.

People disagree with you, so then it's back to the old "Well, you guys are just too dumb to understand/have no perspective" mantra?

My main opponent has no idea what "disseminate" means. I feel completely justified in my assessment.

Well, now I feel kind of silly. What on earth made me think blues posters would have anything approaching a sense of perspective?

Seriously, if you can't understand why some people would want to make bots, and comepete against others who also have bots, you're one massively uncreative dude.

"Defending cheaters?" Are you fucking joking?

All these super collector editions with toys. Are they marketing these games for kids?

If "toy" means "marketed to children," I think I understand why some states require dildos to be sold as "back massagers."

I was going to ask the same thing. I dont think cheaters should be allowed to play the game in any fashion. This is cutting them some serious slack. Also while this sounds fun on paper, I have trouble believing that this system is 100% fullproof. There will be a lot of false positives and regular people will get stuck in these cheat servers.

The only reason you, as a guy who does not stand to make money off the decision, could have for wanting cheaters to lose the game they paid for is spite, which you should grow out of.

Banishing cheaters to their own league is a very pro-userbase decision. If the assholes buy another account, that just means they're back in gen pop again. There are plenty of dickfaces rich enough to do this over and over again as many times as they're caught, and far more who are willing to do it once or twice. By allowing them to keep on doing what they're doing without bothering the rest of us, we're much less likely to ever see them again.

They aren't all trolls, after all. Some of them simply can't handle not winning. Now those types can rest easy in the knowledge that when they lose, it's not their fault; everyone else they play with really is cheating, just like they always claimed was the case. Others are honestly curious about experimenting to make better bots, and have wanted a game to do this to them since forever.

We've probably covered this situation before but... will I still be able to download, install, and play the copy I purchased on Steam?
I never got around to it. Realistically I probably never will but that doesn't mean I won't feel ripped off if I've lost access.

Yes, but my understanding is that it won't work at all, which is why they stopped selling it.

Word on the street is that Steam copies use an outdated, broken GFWL client. Won't talk to the servers at all. For some reason, it was easier to do this than update it; I guess that's why they're considering this confirmation that they're tearing GFWL down?

The good news is you can still play it without buying it again, just not on Steam. For whatever reason Origin copies work. If you get the CD key associated with your Steam copy and redeem it in Origin, it should work fine. I haven't tested the Origin version personally as I'm currently low on HD space, but several users on the Steam forum report this as a serviceable workaround, provided that you're willing to put up with Origin.

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.

I didn't mean multiple paths LITERALLY you simpleton.

Neither did I, you dullard.

In a game of Attrition, you advance your team's score by killing anything, and there are several meaningfully different ways to accomplish that goal. You can charge into the hot zones for standard run & gun, or you can stay on the periphery to farm creeps and attempt to avoid other players until your Titan comes in. Once it's in, you can jump in it to go after other Titans, or use it as a huge, noisy, dangerous decoy while you sneak around ganking pilots trying to deal with it. It is a form of TDM, goddamn TDM, of all things, that has a variety of valid tactics which a player can choose from and switch between on the fly. Of course it doesn't have deep teamplay the way a game with actual classes and objectives does, but it represents a genuinely innovative and fun evolution to shooters in the twitch paradigm. It's something I'd really like to see the industry as a whole appropriate for more nuanced purposes, and it deserves to be recognized as more than a COD clone. This isn't deep, but it's far from brainless. It made this style of shooter fun again for me, and that's a massive achievement.

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.

At least they fixed it quickly, but this is just the international customers, right? When does the US version go live again?

...huh? It's already live. As far as I know, it's never not been live. Had a couple hiccups that I fixed by just trying again.

The worst I can say about this launch is I've occassionally hit some rubber banding, which never happened in the beta. Changing scale always introduces a few issues. This is probably one of the least troublesome launches I can remember.

So yeah, Im interested in this but Ill wait for the price to drop and or see how long it takes them to actually admit that 'support' for this game will be in the form of a fully priced sequel to be released 12-18 months from now....

That was always the plan from the beginning. Titanfall is supposed to be the franchise that gets released every other year between Call of Duty releases, since Medal of Honor got shitcanned.

You really don't need to wait, though. They've pulled off a miracle here; the launch is basically flawless. If they didn't support this one any further at all, it would still be one of the most solid play experiences I've had in several years.

Since EA is publishing it, I'm sure this IP is going to turn into a complete shitfest at some point. But right now? It's perfect. It's one of the best FPS I've ever played. It delivers on the promises Brink made.

I uninstalled BF4 to fit this on my hard drive. I need to put that in the proper context: I've been a huge Battlefield fan since 2142, always thought it was the best thing on the market, no question. Through Bad Company and BF3, I thought it was still there, though starting to slip. BF4 is... a massive disappointment, but still one of the better multiplayer FPS you can get.

I uninstalled it for Titanfall. This game is awesome. Buy it now before they fuck it up.

They also ripped the 'other team won but you can escape so you dont feel bad about losing maybe!' shit straight from BF2142. In fact this whole game is pretty much a miasma of derivative nerdisms.

Which is fine with me, IF it's good.

Unfortunately, they said they'd do an open PC beta, but they never did.

Yes they did. I played it. I saw the posts here about how it wasn't going open, and I figured that must be due to the website being mostly broken at the time. I read those posts in between rounds of the open PC beta.

You didn't need a key or anything, just like SpectralMeat said. It just showed up in my Origin menu one day. I'm sincerely sorry you missed it, it kicked ass.

Giving everyone cloak and a homing pistol is just about the stupidest thing I've ever seen in a multiplayer FPS.

You did something horribly wrong, dude. The cloak and smart pistol are both garbage against other pilots.

It says right in the cloak's description that it's still plenty visible to the naked eye, and it's not lying. That thing is for getting away from and/or on top of Titans. Only depressingly unobservant players will miss somebody near them who is cloaked.

The smart pistol, meanwhile, is almost strictly for farming mooks. It takes about ten years to line up a lethal attack on a pilot. You only have time to do that if the other guy is unaware of you, a terrible shot, or standing still. To use the smart pistol against other players, you either have to be sneaky as hell and very good with the parkour, or in a server full of morons.

I was frustrated by having control of my avatar taken from me so I could watch for 45 - 60 seconds as someone else killed me.

What on earth are you talking about? Nothing in Titanfall does that. The only thing I can think of that takes control from you at all is getting ripped out of a doomed Titan, and that takes about five seconds, at most.

Hmm I dont believe EA will NOT pay sites for good reviews
Anyhow please DONT pay for 4v4 generic console shooters on PC !

Leaving aside that it's 6v6, Titanfall is the opposite of "generic console shooter" in nearly every way except for the persistent progression mechanics. The "bots" that people have made so much fun of serve a purpose completely different from substitute players. They give players genuinely productive, rewarding, and engaging things to do when not in direct combat with real opponents. This, along with players' high mobility, allows a "6v6" game to be fast-paced and well-balanced regardless of the size of the map. In fact, paying attention to this mechanic is key to success for both you and your team; it is comparable to "jungling" in a MOBA.

The Titans also serve an important function with respect to breaking the usual patterns of generic FPS: camping is almost non-existent, requires effective teamwork when it does happen, and never dominates a match regardless of how finely honed somebody's pointing skills are. This is something I've long thought basically insoluble. No matter how frantic and arcadey shooters got, there was always a significant number of people good enough at sniping to make certain maps boring for everybody else. Even games like Battlefield haven't completely fixed this, despite having significant threats on the field that simply can't be dealt with that way. Somehow, Titans manage what tanks haven't. You can snipe in Titanfall, but you can't camp.
