News Comments > Crysis and Crysis 2 MP Support End Next Month
7. Re: Crysis and Crysis 2 MP Support End Next Month Apr 15, 2014, 17:41 Slick
 
They should make both of these games free on Origin immediately telling games to have a fun last month and a half with these wonderful games.

Crysis 1 MP was amazing, especially with all the modded servers out there... -FREE WEAPONS USA_ was my fav, the admins there were awsome

News Comments > Watch Dogs Requires Uplay

ColBlister wrote on Apr 8, 2014, 13:33:
The cool thing is that for games you buy on Steam that require Uplay, it doesn't matter which service you launch the game from, it will also launch the other service. Twice the waiting, twice the updates, twice the fun!

the solution to this isn't what people want to hear, but buy the game from their own publisher's service only. i'd buy the next Portal game from Steam, i'd buy Watch_Dogs from Uplay.

people forget that it was Valve telling the 3rd party publisher Vivendi to fuck off which resulted in the famous law suit which Steam was born from. It's ironic that very few developers are confident enough to tell Steam to now fuck off, and ONLY publish their own titles under their own exclusive service. Steam has become the mega-publisher they once fought against.

why should anyone be chastised for selling their own product, in their own store? and not feeling obligated to just give a 3rd party store a cut of everything they make, forever? seems a bit mad.

Microtransactions + dropping you to the title screen when you lose internet connectivity = fuck you fuck you fuck you


sooo let me get this straight, when your internet dies, you cease to be able to play a multiplayer game. check. unless you'd really consider buying something like this for singleplayer, then yeah, that sucks. there are better SP racers out there. i've only ever been interested in the MP. so if my internet dies, then i wouldn't be playing it anyways. if their servers die and i can't play however, that is a TOTALLY different story, and one that would have anyone appalled.

and then they offer shortcut routes for people who want to get quick short-cuts to unlock car parts instead of grinding them. how would that affect anyone progressing normally? unless it's a game-breaking unlock that turns your car into a DeLorean which can just skip backwards in time so they've finished the race before it's begun, i don't see how it would impact my experience playing the game normally. unless my entire premise for playing the game was to be the first to get all the unlocks personally, and my day would be ruined by seeing any other player with said unlocks that isn't me.

Nice find in BF4! we've been looking for that wiley megalodon since launch

i thought that the jurassic park on the Satalite dish map, or crate you could blow up on the sunken freightliner on Hainan Resort was the big easter-egg that everyone on the map could see, as was aluded to by the devs.. NOPE!

here's the jurassic park one:

hilarious indeed, but not for the reason you state.

Mtgox get robbed, and people think bitcoin is done for, HA! gee I've never heard of anyone robbing a bank before... remember that one time some crooks made off with some USD? boy, nobody ever tried using US dollars again after that you betcha. I wonder how many years ago it was when anyone tried robbing a crate of gold for the first time? that sure was the last nail in the coffin for that archaic "gold" stuff. i mean people only said that gold had value because it was rare, impossible to duplicate, and there was a finite supply of it... sound familiar?

people aren't seeing the face-slapping truth that if someone's willing to try and steal 750,000 bitcoins, then they're obviously worth taking. if anything it raises the entire profile of bitcoins.

and for the record, bitcoins are so two-thousand and late, there's a myriad of alternalt cryptocurrencies that are traded in the hundreds of billions every day on exchanges around the world.

it's never going to replace fiat currency, that's what penniless hippies and anarchists say when talking about bitcoin, people who have obviously never traded or mined a single satoshi worth (the smallest denomination of a bitcoin 0.00000001 BTC).

either get with it, or get left behind. not like ya didn't have fair warning.

News Comments > Battlefield 4 Mantle Update Released
73. Re: Battlefield 4 Mantle Update Released Jan 31, 2014, 16:05 Slick
 
It is really astounding the quality of naysayers here. from "%58 increase is garbage, who cares?" to "this is obviously a giant dumb money-sink for AMD, no other games will support it, it's already a huge fail".

make me lol though, gotta say.

other than that a lot of really well thought-out ideas in this thread, i'm proud of you BN forum. And for the record:

Nvidia with first 3D support = good
AMD with first multi-monitor support = good
Nvidia with G-Sync = good
AMD with great GPGPU support (scrypt mining) = good
Nvidia with Shadowplay = good
AMD with mantle = good

tried of all the fanboy shit, get over yourselves, and enjoy this new latest and greatest advance in technology so we can rub chee-tos all over our bare chests while playing battlefield, us undeserving fucks.

News Comments > Battlefield 4 Preloads

i'd love to see how this thread would play out if instead it was Valve who offered a no questions asked 24 hour refund after buying a game from them.... you know, in the name of science.

origin humble bundle giving away numerous "AAA" games for next to nothing, giving all proceeds to charity.... EVIL

simcity launch botched = free "AAA" quality games for everyone... EVIL

Policy revisal giving people a 24 hour grace period to get a full refund after already "unboxing" and playing their digital games, without question... EVIL

when i think of all of that, the first though that usually enters my head is "geez, these guys are really PISSING on me, i should grow up and take it" LOL

i think that "growing up" should really be a theme here...

so offering a full no-questions refund in the first 24 hours after you're already playing the game, is a bad thing?

I just snagged BF4 from GMG for $48 and finished preloading. I wasn't willing to pay the full $60 for what is really BF3.5

I'm looking forward to a lot of the balance changes in 4, and I was sold once I saw that they removed the RPG and SMAW's ability to use the laser lock from the open beta (seriously, who thought that was a good idea?)

the rpg lock in the BF4 beta was just an anti-butthurt measure to balance choppers. once we get all of our unlocks, we'll have real counters to chopper rape. But in a controlled test only giving out the first 2 unlocks, gadgets etc per vehicle, soldier etc. the lock-on RPGs just gave people the ability to counter a good chopper team.

not to brag, but on the first day of the beta i was going at least 40-0 routinely with my pilot in comms, until people figured out the rpg trick, it just have been terrible for the people on the ground, that's all i'll say. as a promotional beta, it wouldn't have helped people enjoy and want to purchase the game after being demolished like that

can't wait for all this CoD profit to finally go into a game deserving of it's enormous popularity. I'm guessing a few years into the next gen when games are no longer cross-platform (current gen to next gen) so they don't have to worry about an engine to work across an 8-year technological gulf, then we'll see a proper CoD game.

Until then, i'll watch from the sidelines hoping they'll get their shit together, they're still making games that look good/play well for 1999, but 2013 is calling, it wants it's promised future back.

News Comments > SimCity Cities of Tomorrow Announced
11. Re: SimCity Cities of Tomorrow Announced Sep 20, 2013, 02:16 Slick
 
the game needs more free content IMO. always-online aside, the game is quite fun for a few weeks, then there's not really much to do after you've already done everything, done full 16 person reasons, done every specialty, pretty much every combo i could think of... I enjoy the game but it needs 2 things IMO:

1) more content
2) a reason to stay zoomed-in to the street level. There's nothing you can do at the street level other than go "oooh, ahhh" at the amazing visuals, but zero strategic value, so you end up playing the game permanently zoomed out, just wanting the cities to be bigger. Fact is they're already big enough that there's tons of stuff going on in your cities, but you never end up appreciating it because you're permanently on macro-view. *cough* simcopter, *cough* streets of simcity

Ok guy, GG, you win. Releasing the server and engine files to the public has no effect on hacks.

ie not giving all the core data of the engine away to all the hackers in the world?

That helped so much in BF3 after all Rolleyes

Name one AAA MP FPS in the last 20 years which didn't have hackers, name one and i'll eat my shoe. Did you play BF3? I've seen 3 hackers and i've been playing since launch, about 600 hours. Someone 1-shotting you from across the map with an ammo box is a bit of a giveaway. But anything else is legit. People forget about spotting, about mini-maps, about well lots of things when they get pwned and scream "no wayyyyy". I get called a hacker all the time, doesn't mean i'm hacking, just means people are terrible.

I went 20-0 to open this round up here:

http://www.twitch.tv/boomyak/c/2818858

and i was being called a hack left right and center, it's just gamer culture, i wouldn't worry too much about it. The fact that they never released the server files and we didn't have rampant hacking like in BF2 was GREAT for gamers, even though it took away custom map building and server hosting. Tough love, but in our best interest.

as hilarious as cartillery was, i'm glad we've progressed since then:
