Still more interested in a Torchlight 2 release date.

Torchlight was okay. Torchlight 2 will also probably be okay. I'll end up buying it, but I really don't expect too much from it.

"Today, we're trying to build the best console team at Blizzard," Mosqueira said during a Q&A session. "We're looking for programmers, designers and artists who think their dream job would be to bring Diablo to the console."

Dream job? Ok, if Blizzard wasn't entirely dead before they are now. RIP Blizzard.



SENSATIONALIZE ALL THE THINGS!

And, almost every game had a couple of kids that kept insulting each other...a typical scenario was:

And this is exactly why some of us cheer the addition of bots.




Or you guys could actually look into using the CSS console. For example, typing hud_saytext_time 0 into console allows all text messages to stay on screen for 0 seconds. In other words, it removes chat.

The only reasonable thing to hate CSS for is the high number of hackers, but if its really an issue for it, spend some time finding servers without them. People using them are obvious, even the well-masked ones. If someone has an absurd 3+ KD, then check their time played this week or all time. If it's alot, then chances are they have just become good. If not, its probably a hacker's puppet account.

Or, if you are really lucky, you can find a few people to always play with and just passcode you 4v4 server. Problem solved.

To those concerned about consolitis, remember than the orange box came out on console as well and Portal/TF2 were not consolized because of it. Valve knows their target audience. They flew in well known pro-community names to test their beta, prying them for criticism. They aren't aiming this game at the casual players.

They flew in hardcore players from around the world to test it. Valve's taking this very seriously, which is good considering 1.6 and source and still some of the most played games, despite being around for so many years.

SSDD, but fortunately MW2 was my favorite game of all time as far as multiplayer goes, so I get this one no doubt. This gametype looks interesting, definitely looking forward to it.

And frequently you get more SP gameplay out of those $10 games than you do with the $60 ones that have 5 hours of SP gameplay.


2011 is the year of the indie, and it's fucking awesome.


Year of the indie, for now at least. This fall/winter will be sick.

Actually, the PC version has 64 players with superior visuals. Give up already, you're trolling is pathetic.


lol, wut. You realize that you and the guy you are trolling have the same opinion-stance, right? So are you trolling too?

It isn't a generic fantasy MMO or 3rd person shooter with chest high walls and regenerating health. That unfortunately qualifies as innovative now. It isn't even a "cute platformer" which is what most successful indie games seem to be.

EA would've laughed them out of the office if someone tried pitching this to them, but it has sold a lot more copies than most (all? FIFA probably outsells it) of the garbage they release.

I agree with you, but I'd caution you that the how much it sells argument isn't a great one. In particular, consider how many virtual items Zynga has sold in Farmville or other games like it. Or consider how many copies of the Sims were sold -- again, not exactly starling examples of greatness.

Farmville and Sims are both great games. Maybe not to you, though.

For a game I have no interest in playing, I'm always happy to hear how incredibly well it is doing.

Partially because unique innovative games should be celebrated even if they aren't your cup of tea, but mainly due to the conniptions the success causes to Ubisoft/EA/Bioware as it destroys their latest 'aaa' shovelware.

Minecraft really isn't unique or innovative. By his own admission it's his version of an existing game. Games like 'Cube' and others allowed you to build your own world in realtime, etc.

I think Notch just had the right timing, the right graphics style during period where retro-games are cool again, and luck.

You could argue that it's the most successful implementation of someone else's concept though.

(And I say this as someone who bought minecraft btw.)

Pretty sure it's the first massive world cooperative construction game. I can't think of any others, really.

Yep, then you'd have to layer in more recoil, ballistics and the effects of physical stress on shooting.

Then you'd be playing ARMA.

I thought BC2 came close to a good balance, my only big gripes: The idea of medics toting LMGs was a bit ridiculous. Recoil was a bit light in many instances (M60) and falling more than 8 feet should be an insta-kill.

lol, wut?

That looks pretty rad, almost like a futuristic Bioshock citysphere.

I got the same vibe. With that sort of theme direction I would be totally down for trying it. Probably bad that I'm excited over a game that doesn't even have a name yet haha.

Thanks for the quick replies, looks like I'll go with MineCraft+Terraria, since the two together are still a couple of bucks cheaper than Alice.

6. Random Question Jun 27, 2011, 15:16 Mcboinkens
 
I couldn't think of a good spot to ask this, so I'll just do it here.

I'm looking for a new game to play, but most recent games haven't really stood out. I've been looking at Minecraft, Terraria, and Alice: Madness Returns. They all seem pretty appealing, but I was wondering if anyone has any input to help me decide which are worth buying. Thanks!

I hope Titan ends up as good as all the other games Blizzard has made. I played WoW for a solid 3 years, and only quit because my server died and guild fell apart. If Titan comes anywhere near being as good as WoW, I'll be paying a subscription again haha.
