News Comments > TF2 Mann vs. Machine Update Wednesday
12. Re: TF2 Mann vs. Machine Update Wednesday Aug 14, 2012, 02:24 Esoteric
 
Cool stuff. Although "horde mode" has been done before, it should be fun with the TF2 classes. I imagine it's kind of going to be like Killing Floor (great game!) where you have waves, earn money to buy upgrades, etc.

Valve has been doing a lot of stuff lately... Source Filmmaker, Steam Greenlight, the new Steam Hub stuff, Big Picture Mode coming out soon, Portal 2 level designer, Steam Workshop on a lot of games, TF2 updates, Dota 2, CS:GO, Linux development, biometrics research, and some other stuff I can't think of right now.

Pretty impressive.

Really enjoying OMD2, I think it's quite a bit better than the first one (not that the first one was bad by any means). More ways to create different builds, more possible ways to beat the levels. Liking endless mode, too. Haven't had a chance to try co-op yet, but looking forward to it.

Picked up OMD 2. Looking forward to playing it tomorrow. Hopefully there's really interesting/varied builds with all the new upgrade paths.

Really looking forward to this. It looks like there's a lot more options "build-wise" with the upgrades and such.

I mean, maybe I should start a Kickstarter for a hundred million dollars, to buy the Monkey Island license. You never know!

Interesting that you would think this IP is worth 100,000,000 ...

Yeah, go for it, start it on Kickstart for 100,000,000 just for all of us to laugh at you, and to waste Kickerstarter's time of course.

*wooosh*

The changes sound good, and based on my time with the beta, are very much needed. I think the game will be a lot better when it's released. I'm still skeptical of their decision not to have another beta after making some fairly major changes though. I guess that's the new thing though, we're all paying beta testers. It's gotta be a lot better than D3 at least, right?

I'm pretty sure it does have to be better. Uneasy Right?

There are levels of blame. I don't blame Kickstarter at all. It's a good idea in general. I blame the people behind Ouya the most, as it is almost a scam. Nothing of worth will come from all the money donated. And I somewhat blame the people who donated, for not doing a bit of thinking or research first, but they'll find out the hard way.

I just got into the Shootmania beta, played it a bit tonight. The engine feels nice enough for instagib (which is the true test of a smooth/reactive engine IMO). I haven't played the other gametypes yet, but the engine is the most important thing for a competitive FPS. Maps/game modes/etc can all be added easily through modding. So far I like what I see. Still have 7 more days to check it out, though, we'll see.

I've been waiting for a really good skill-based FPS since UT2k4. Tribes Ascend is pretty nice, but I really prefer instagib, and Tribes has no modding.

I used to go to Digg once in a while before the change, but it was really bad. Around that time I discovered Reddit and haven't looked back since. I really like Reddit, but you really have to look for good subreddits. There are thousands of them, and the default ones are pretty bad since they automatically have the most people.

I'm not sure what the best solution is, but I do think gear switching right before a kill is a lame mechanic.

Anyone have any impressions on CK II? Thinking about one of the bundles with it. It seems to have a lot of good word of mouth, just wondering if anyone here has played it. I don't mind a learning curve if it's worth it in the end.

Regardless of how you feel about D3, a 230% rise in sales should be enough to shut those fucking PC and Piracy doomsayers up for a bit.
Shocked that it was ONLY 230% rise on the PC end, considering it sold so damn many copies. You'd think it would blow the average completely out of the water.

Pretty sure it actually IS higher than that, but they're only counting retail. I and many others I know bought our copy digitally from Blizzard, which wouldn't show up in these figures.

Although I don't play it anymore, Rift is still doing well (for ITSELF, not compared to WoW) with a subscription. F2P, although having a shaky start (pay to win/necessary to buy to progress), has shown itself to be a viable, consumer-friendly method if done right. League of Legends, Tribes Ascend, LotRO, etc, are all good examples, IMO, whether you like the game itself or not.

GW2 is going to do extremely well, and it's going to put pressure on all MMOs that charge a monthly fee to make that fee extremely worthwhile for consumers to pay. Most likely it's going to force the hand of Rift (a quality MMO) to possibly think of F2P also.

I played the SWTOR beta and it was pretty obvious it was going to flop, at least in regards to how much they spent on it vs. how good it was/how many people would keep subscribing. Hated the plastic characters/armor.

I like the AH system. It lets me use a guaranteed stream of income (gold) to purchase items outright, rather than relying exclusively on luck of the drop. It also gives me and easier and less time consuming way to unload unwanted items.

Agreed. Really enjoying the game so far. (Never cared about online-only, I consider it like Guild Wars 1). They do have a lot of options for improvements, though, like more loot modifiers, and making legendaries more...legendary. I have 3, and they all suck. I'm going to save them though, in the hope that when they're fixed, they'll be fixed retroactively, and I'll be able to sell/use them.
