If the BULLDOG and AWS are any indication balance will be completely fucked by the time they finish with BF4.. it was the last Battlefield I bought anyway. As much as I enjoy a good match on Silk Road the entire rest of the series bores me to tears nowadays. Heck, I think I am going to buy COD this year. For the first time since.. holy crap.. I think Cod 2

I just want a sharp, proper shooter. And BF4 has just too much bullshit kills going on. Their high latency bubble didn't fix shit. I still see tank shells EXPLODING and not getting a hit-marker (on helicopters especially) I still see people that somehow take less damage from hits than others.

Well, BF4 is never going to be a 100tic, sharp registry shooter like CS1.6 or CS:S or something. Gotta get over that. Supposedly the CTE patch is going to help out a little, but it simply won't ever be a highly responsive game. Shooting Helos and Jets down is a bit annoying, but you just have to lead them more than the graphics show, aka shoot to miss in front, and you will hit dead on 95% of the time.

I still haven't found a game that's going to replace the mass carnage in a conquest large round on Golmud Railway/Silk Road/Caspian Border, etc. Too bad "competitive" BF4 is so focused on 5v5 nonsense, this game would be beautiful to spec competitive 12v12 or 16v16 conquest matches, or even 20v20s.


Aside from that, AWS/Bulldog don't bug me much, although they are overused, I do way better than average vs them with SCAR-H, PKP, F2000, ACE52CQB, etc. The new DEagle is way more of an imbalance compared to other pistols, imo.

I don't know, I'm kind of looking forward to a SW:Battlefront where half the people are running around with lightsabers trying to melee each other, then I come along in an AT-AT or something and just start stomping on people and blowing their sit up completely.

Also the maps look pretty good in this video, don't know if those brief glimpses were of a hover tank and a mech of some sort, not sure how that's going to play out, balance wise, in BF4.

Ok GoG. I own entirely too many games off you already, but where, oh where, is Battlezone 2? Or even 1, at this point!?
Battlezone 1, patched and modded for use on modern hardware and OS:
http://www.battlezone1.org/

Battlezone 2:
Well, erm ... not so easy to get
https://kickass.to/battlezone-2-allinone-v1-3-t6168813.html

Ah thanks! I knew some of the BZ2 coders were still messing around making patches for the game, but still no official BZ2 public domain release. I'll mull over this source.

There is a site blacklist being passed around (Don't worry Blues, you aren't on it ;)) and active browser add-ons that will absolutely cripple the larger sites in the long run (it auto-retrieves pages from the nearest archive instead of allowing click-throughs to the site).

A blacklist? What is this, 1950? What a ridiculous overreaction.

I don't think I've read Rock, Paper, Shotgun in the past more than a few times, but I'm going to check them a couple times a week now. Way too many people getting worked up about other people getting worked up. Take a deep breath and relax.

Also, none of these online 'journalists' should claim to be speaking for 'gamers' or any other group. Most gamers have never even heard of any of these people involved in this, any of these Gates, or so called controversies, based on conversations with people who actually play games.

*EDIT* typo.

I am sure Battlezone 2 is still in legal hell, but it's my number 1 wish for new(old) gog games.

My old Battlezone 2 cds are unusable at this point.

This... looks somewhat underhwelming.

Maybe when the GotY version is down to under 10 bucks. Possibly.

Obviously this was not in the US, otherwise someone would have immediately shot the poor dog.


I am surprised it never barked at all(apparently?) to alert people that indeed it was a dog in a costume.

Also, spiders don't get that big, control yourselves, random people running away in the dark.

Although that one setup in the elevator... excellent work.

Looking pretty good, definitely a metric shit ton more money for KF2 than KF1... hopefully that actually translates to playable quality for this game.

Hrm, I'll have to check out their release version of the game, up until now the betas have not been that great. More work than fun for sure, at least it seemed like to me.

This... looks terrible currently. Why would they bother showing the game with that much placeholder art?

Also, no one wants another MOBA, or MOBA hybrid. Damn. Much less MOBA, way more RTS please.

Hmm, didn't I see that over on Pornhub?

Yeah, questionable title, but the gameplay video looks sort of hilarious. It'll probably end up like Magicka though, if I convince people to buy it they will quit it after 5 minutes, instead of staying strong for months.

Ok here is my problem....
People make threats against you and your family members. You blog it first THEN contact the police?!? WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU?!? Get your fucking priorities straight!

That's the social media culture for you. See an emergency in the street? Film it on your cell phone, then put it on youtube! Somebody else will surely do something about it...

I don't really follow the popular critic side of gaming, or whatever you call this, but really, all of humanity needs to stop using Facebook/Twitter/New Social Media Thing immediately.

Nothing good comes from putting your real face/name on the internet. I finally registered on bluesnews after about 12+ years of anonymous reading

Also, regarding Joss Whedon, how in the hell does a giant prison for supernatural killer creatures have a big red button that releases all of said creatures into the building!? (Cabin the Woods) I dislocated my shoulder, throwing my arms up in the air so hard.

Most likely whatever license agreement they originally had for these mostly European games expired, and the parent companies have made it too expensive to renew, or they have collapsed and sold off the rights, or the rights are in limbo, etc. etc.

Similar to Steam dropping Deadpool and other games. Licensing mummery strikes again.

Also there appears to be some issue with some publishers regarding gog.com's new Regional pricing/local currency scheme.

*EDIT* As Whiskers says below.

On the plus side 5 days is a decent amount of time to pick through these titles if you don't already own what you want already.

Ugh, gog.com, you silly fools. I hope this turns out for the best but you probably just got yourself targeted by a dark cabal of MPAA monsters who never rarely come up from their subterranean lair, except to destroy websites that might threaten their empire.

Also, one would think the current selection of films should be WAY cheaper... ?

Just for reference, I jumped in and did two Greed's Domain runs. I went from 4 million gold to 62 million. 62 million! This is out of control.

For reference, I only played Torment 2 (400% more gold) with my decent Lvl 70 Wizard. If you want to know how to get to Greed's Domain fastest, simply go to Halls of Agony Level 2 and find the guaranteed Goblin spawn somewhere on that floor. With the temporary boost, you always get 2 Goblins to spawn and it seems to take 10-20 Goblins to spawn a portal.

Anyway...totally crazy how much gold you get. Patch 2.1 is good overall...although I wish I could just do Greater Rifts whenever I wanted and be able to pick the difficulty.

Well, it's not like gold is really useful anymore, it's more of a hindrance than anything, for crafting/repairs/gems.

Also, login wait time when I tried to get on Battlenet, I guess everybody is trying to get a look at the patch tonight.

*EDIT* Hrm yeah can't even connect now. Oh well, I'll try later in the week.
