News Comments > Wing Commander 3 Free on Origin
14. Re: Wing Commander 3 Free on Origin Aug 5, 2014, 18:14 Quinn
 
Always the same complaining about Origin/Steam/Uplay. Cry me a fucking river. All three DRMs can run in the background for all I care. My system doesn't slow down because of it. Does it slow yours? If so, maybe less porn. Those sites are shady. Run a virus scan.

Once Origin/Steam/Uplay is started up, which takes 5 seconds if not less (wait, not for you? Again, scan your system and start appreciating your wife more) it's happy gaming. You even get achievements, rewards (Uplay) and a nice sense of building a collection.

EA is giving away games for free. Shut up.

Got some better wifi connection here on vacation, managed to watch the video again on higher resolution. It's not as horrible as I originally thought. Still horrified by the tactical view, and because this indeed seems to be console footage I hope the PC tactical view will be less abominal.

This can be a good mix between DA:O's combat (which, admittedly, was a tad too slow) and DA2 (which was.. well, just crap but with more responsiveness to player input).

Still not convinced at all, even after watching in 720p.

My big problem has very little to do with ESO -- which I consider the best MMORPG since WoW. My problem is that any good singleplayer game is always better than any good multiplayer game. The reason I stopped playing ESO was because of the fact that great singleplayer games came out after the first month and keep coming out.

Once we're having a singleplayer draught again, I can't wait to start up ESO.

The earlier trailer finally got me excited. Finally. I saw the gameplay merging into cutscene merging into dialogue options, which I simply worshipped in the ME games, and I was damn near convinced I'd buy the game at release.

Now I see this shit again. All the flashy shit remind me of MMOs, which I definitely don't want to be reminder of when playing a singleplayer game. And what's with the tactical view, really?! When I move my mouse, I don't expect the entire world to move instead of my cursor. What crazy dude decided to make the cursor some sort of unmovable centerpiece while we drag the camera around like we're in a freaking hovercraft!?

From convinced to not convinced. They'd best start showing some very, very impressive story-trailers because every time I watch DA3's combat system in action, I damn near throw up in my mouth.

Rogues suck, huh? There's only one character in my group that can kill an enemy during his first turn and he's also always the first character to move when combat starts. That character is a rogue. He has crazy lots of AP and AP regen, does crazy amount of backstab damage and can stun, knockdown, charm, blind and weaken.

Personally I feel ripped off buying Divinity: Original Sin. I just do not see what people are raving about. Even the kids thought it was hokie. Funny thing is I do like rpg games too.

Trying to compare this game to Baldur's gate series is a travesty, those games, old as they are, were much better than this game.

Eh, I'll give that a 2/10...not much effort.


Is that about the game or his verdict on the game? Being a man of few words really isn't as cool as some here make you believe it is.

If you mean the first, then I think you haven't even played it for obvious reasons other than that the game is in no way a 2/10. If it's the latter, which I presume it is, then I tend to agree with you.

Ozmodan, it takes a while to get into the game. Grab the quest in the first settlement and get the hell out of there and kill some baddies while heading toward the lighthouse in the west. You'll finish many of said quests out there, get new ones and get a good feel of the game. The game will most probably have you bound to it soon -- just give it a chance to do so.

based on the production designs, i wouldn't hold my breath for anything revolutionary. looks like they're just catering to the peter jackson crowd, trying to scratch their adventure itch. which bugs the shit out of me cuz i hated his art designs for the films. still, if it's just assassin's creed: middle-earth, it'll be worth my money.

You hated his art design for the films!? You're the first person I've heard that feels that way. Blasphemy! Before you, I almost started to believe it was a solid fact the art design was just perfect

As for the game... I love the fact that it looks like the films. The orcs look disgusting and terrifying as they should. The protagonist looks nice and tough. Having a hard time imagining this game to be truly open world, though. And damn.. the animations.. especially when he walks over those ropes and assassinates from above. AC all over it. Me no like.

"Demo" first.

DayZ is the current meme, like Minecraft was. It's the in thing to buy atm.

I don't think you understand what a meme is. Minecraft is still super popular, btw. Nothing past tense about it. They've sold about 54 million copies thus far and are still going strong. If Minecraft were available on Steam, it would probably be the top seller.

Sigh, why am I the only person around here who understands sociological concepts like what a meme is?

A meme (/&#712;mi&#720;m/ meem)[1] is "an idea, behavior, or style that spreads from person to person within a culture."[2] A meme acts as a unit for carrying cultural ideas, symbols, or practices that can be transmitted from one mind to another through writing, speech, gestures, rituals, or other imitable phenomena with a mimicked theme. Supporters of the concept regard memes as cultural analogues to genes in that they self-replicate, mutate, and respond to selective pressures.[3]

Does that help clarify it for you? Allow me to simplify. Little Johnny here's of a 'kewl' product or service that's getting popular. And like most of societies mouth breathers Little Johnny lacks the self-esteem to buck trends. So rather than risk social isolation he jumps on the bandwagon. Now Little Johnny is part of the "in-crowd", and his other little pea-brain pals have to join in or they risk being ostracized as well. See how that works?

The definition in the first paragraph doesn't match the definition in the second. The second describes a fad while the first is so broad that it can be applied to just about anything popular. When people speak of "meme" in a modern context, they are specifically referring to things like doge or ceiling cat or bucket walrus. While such memes do tend to be short-lived and could therefore be called fads, "fad" and "meme" are not necessarily synonymous.

The truth is that you simply dislike DayZ and don't understand its popularity and thus you feel obligated to dismiss its success as hollow and undeserved. It's a means of self-validation and lets you feel like your opinion is correct even if it conflicts with the opinions of the majority.

Can't believe you tried to run from your fuck-up with a cheap "The truth is ...", lol. Cutter was using the phrase correctly and you were very wrong faulting him for it.

As for Divinity being on #1 again... that's just great to see! Loving the game so much. On vacation in Italy atm, but I'd lie if I said I didn't miss my champions!

ESO in the list too, huh? Glad to see. There's allot of time and passion put into this game. You'll know if you'd tried it.

The last gameplay trailer I saw showed this game will be utterly bad. It was hard to see for the inexperienced eye, but let me guarantee the lot of you: this game will suck. Just a fair warning. Don't let me say I hate to say I told you so.

Loved playing it. Looking back at it I have fond memories. Sadly, every good non-MMO game is always better... and while I was absolutely loving ESO, it got quickly forgotten with the new singleplayer releases (Watch Dogs, Divinity, Sniper Elite 3, Wolfenstein, etc).

In retrospect, as an MMO the game has failed too hard. I wonder how it could've been that this panel of designers didn't realize anywhere in the development process that in order to have a succesful MMO, there has to be a good & fun reason for players to band together. Ironically, because ESO had such terrific quests and NPC's/voice-acting... teaming with other players only distracted you from the good stuff.

Thank you, Verno, or "poster-that-I-don't-have-on-ignore", for shining that knightly light on the situation...

The fact of the matter is that nothing happened that doesn't happen in right about every single thread in this place. It wasn't even an insult I put out there, just a freaking honest observation. Yes, it was off-topic, but again, hardly any thread stays on-topic here and that's fine.

If what you mean to say is that if Nin doesn't like what he reads he has the influence to remove said comment... then that's just disgusting.

I know you're not reading this, because you put people on ignore when they disagree with you, but that's alright. There's a message in here that's ok to be conveyed to onlookers.

Yup it's absolutely ridiculous and I'm very happy to see you read my comment before it was removed and also disagree with the removal of it, Dmitri.

Sometimes I can be an ill tempered Italian little fucker but that wasn't the case this time. At all.

It's fucking ridiculous that some people can get away with openly telling others to put people on ignore, while all I did here was raise a valid question about someone. Pisses me off.

REMOVED?! What the hell!? What I said really wasn't even remotely within reason to be removed. Blue, this makes absolutely no sense and I'm sure you're scratching your chin right now thinking "Why the hell did I do that?" especially after being confronted by the hypocricy pointed out in Axis' earlier confrontation.

@sauron

The non-lethal approach is entirely doable in Dishonored. As a Thief junkie this is what sold the game to me.

Agreed!


Oh cool! I didn't realize. Thanks guys.

Hmm, maybe one to pick up, then. Although Divinity: Original Sin also looks kinda great right now.

If you want to do a non-lethal approach in this shithole of a game, you can basically teleport your way to the end of each mission. It's only because I am a completionist that I decided not to finish each mission within 5 minutes but went for the secrets and the occasional knock-out. Also, going non-lethal means you're not going to use about 80% of the features and skills the devs have put 80% of the development time in.

Ugh, god I hate this game.

In my case it's impatience as my characters probably aren't at high enough of a level to be venturing so far from the first settlement

Ah! Yes, the first "chapter" is really testing your patience like that. IMO it's too much blablablablabla and too little pewpew to start a game's story with.

Once you start venturing outside of the settlement, head west and toward the lighthouse but not before you go to the commander (Arius or something?) in the settlement who gives you the quest to do just that. There are enemies on the road and you'll complete some minor quests. Lovely XP boosts.

You should be around lvl 14 before you decide to venture further north.
