News Comments > Carmageddon: Reincarnation Funded
25. Re: Carmageddon: Reincarnation Funded May 28, 2012, 15:41 Trevellian
 
It was not just a "great singleplayer experience"
I played it online for quite a very long time with many others.
A Player run official AVA (Auto Vigilante Association) was created around the game to hold tournaments and have rulesets and weight classes for tournaments.

If you never played the game online, that is fine. But many of us did. It was a subculture much in the same way that Mechwarrior had online.

Auto Assault was terrible because it was an MMO. Not because it was an Auto Combat game. And it was done poorly.

This always makes me think of Quarantine. Doing violent missions to improve your car while listening to music seems like a pretty safe bet for a game today, so I'm not sure why it hasn't been 'reincarnated' too.

Redline was a wannabe Interstate '76 and I never thought it was nearly as good.

Just give me a true I'76 sequel with weight classes and custom setups like the original. Hell, let Pirahna do it since it looks like they're doing Mechwarrior right. Would make sense seeing as the original ran on the Mechwarrior 2 engine anyway, the game isn't that far from MW, just cars in place of mechs.

To Creston and Spectral. Don't bother.

Played through the PS3 demo, underwhelming at best. The game LOOKS great, but that is all it has going for it.
Yet another Stop and Pop shooter in the vein of Gears of War just set with realistic weapons in the desert.

The weapons weren't even good. They didn't have a nice heavy feel to them or anything. When you hit a guy with a bullet it doesn't feel right, something about the death animations seems lackluster and as if they are just falling over, not as though they just took 6 bullets to the chest.

I dunno. Pretty crap if you ask me overall.

News Comments > Diablo III Hacking?
102. Re: Diablo III Hacking? May 21, 2012, 17:57 Trevellian
 
I want to know where half of you get your information about "Server downtime" for D3.
Other than midnight release, and an hour or two later that day I have witnessed ZERO downtime for D3. A quick server reboot to fix something here and there? Yes. The other night they gave a 5 minute warning for a server shutdown. I disconnected, reconnected 2 minutes later and was playing.

I'd much rather have this for fixing problems than waiting 3 or 4 months for a Patch that may or may not fix shit and causes more problems (I'm looking at Battlefield 3 on this one, a game that requires you to own Origin but doesn't utilize the fact that they could patch fixes more often with it)

Hopefully it happens... remember they're owned by THQ, which just had yet another quarter of losing more money than their entire market capitalization.

I have a hard time trusting any THQ plans for anything past next week at this point.

Even if THQ goes under I am fairly sure someone will pick up Volition and the Saints Row series as it's the only real competition GTA has. Someone will want it.

Why bother unlocking the game PST? Why leave fans waiting till 3 am to play on the East Coast?

Because they don't give a shit about the east coast. It was always the same thing with WoW as I recall. Half the guys I am going to play D3 with are on the West Coast and wanted to play with me tonight, fat chance. 3am and I have to be up at 7, not going to happen. At least if it unlocked Midnight EST I could have got an hour or two in and still got some sleep.

One of my childhood friends is an animator for X:EU. He grew up playing Xcom along with myself. So far he's impressed with the game (He's working on it, fair enough, but still). He's usually a very pessimistic and critical person. So I kind of have to trust his opinion when he says it's good. Since he hates 80% of most games that get released.

That's because there is no AA on the xbox.

Sure there is.

Aliterate Assholes? Oh yeah, plenty of those on the Xbox. It's why I never wore my headset.

Dear RealmForge.

Your game looks like recycled feces. You should work for Activision.

I'm still waiting for an MMO that drops me into a compelling world and allows me to explore it at my own pace. No quests. No breadcrumbs. No hand holding. No going from point A to point B until max level. If I want to grind XP, I'll stop and kill some MOBs before moving on. In other words, something along the lines of UO or vanilla EverQuest. I'm really sick of MMOs like TOR that are nothing but glorified single player games.

I'm in this boat. I want a Vanilla EQ style game. No hand holding, real consequences for stupidity, feeling like you're actually in danger and lost when you decide to go exploring. And Nighttime was actually fucking Nighttime, damnit.

Guess I'll have to continue to play single player shit like Dark Souls and Dragon's Dogma on the PS3 if I want that kind of experience, too bad they're single player.

And after GW2 and Secret World launch Ye Olde Repube is going to lose a lot more subs...lot more.

Oh yeah, and TES Online is not too far off either.

Sadly after seeing the leaked Game Informer article on TES I'm not excited, looks like another WoW clone with TES stuff.

All they had to do was keep the way Skyrim plays and make it multiplayer, but no.

Who gave this Game of the Year?

The story was terrible, the animation and character models were terrible. Me and my friends barely made it through the entire story to the end without wanting to cut ourselves and regretting the money spent on this buggy piece of dung the entire time.

News Comments > Saints Row 3 Standalone Expansion Plans
34. Re: Saints Row 3 Standalone Expansion Plans May 4, 2012, 22:51 Trevellian
 
Is it poor performance for my Rig? Yeah, it is.

However the discussion was whether SR3 ran at 30FPS or 60

Which it does, so I'm not going to complain about getting 60fps in a game I really enjoy.

I dunno, I'm just not that guy.

It's great to see FPS in the 100's in some games, but as long as a game runs 60 I can't be mad at them.

Just to be sure Jerykk I just booted up SR3 with Fraps running.
Ran around and drove around for about 5 minutes just watching the FPS counter.
Lowest it hit was 48 or 49. Highest was 76 standing perfectly still.
Floated mostly in the 55-65 range though.
Recording dropped it to a pretty steady 30 but that is because I have it set to record at that obviously. So it will still be playable.

Great game, definitely picking up the expansion. They really did right by PC gamers with the port this time too.

Depends on whether you're using an Nvidia or ATI card. ATI cards run the game like ass. Volition said that they were aware of the issues and would fix them but that was a months ago. Haven't heard a peep since then.

I ran it on 2 crossfired 6870's never once had a bad framerate.

Again, what do you consider "bad?" People have different levels of tolerance for framerates. I consider 30 FPS to be bad for a console port. Some people think 30 FPS is fine. If you have two 6870s in Crossfire, you should be getting a minimum of 60 FPS. Is that what you actually got?

I hardly consider 30 bad, anything above 30 is fine with me. 60 definitely looks better no doubt but I wouldn't cry about a game running at like 40 or 50.

That being said according to Fraps it always ran around 60 as far as I recall. Granted, actually filming anything with fraps would slow it down. I don't get why some games handle being filmed better than others, I don't really get any slowdown at all in Battlefield 3 while recording.
