I played a few days ago for the first time (I bought it during the xmas sales). I can't aim worth shit with their system. Firing a gun in space is probably not the easiest thing, though, even if the suit does compensate for it. Still, sucks to not be able to hold a gun steady before firing.

Vanilla sucked. BC sucked, but less. Wrath is awesome. I have T10 gear with minimal effort. As an added bonus, it makes the raiders QQ.

Same bug here. She just stood there in the way in the teleporter, casually watching me and blinking. Kinda creepy. A reload fixed it.

If there's one way to get good press, it's to file a lawsuit. er.. no wait.

Has Alyx always been killable? I'm noticing she dies now if I'm not there covering her. I thought she just fell over and then got back up. Now I get a big "You lose, loser" message. First time on hard mode, though, so that may be why.

Looking forward to this. Trying to avoid the beta so I don't end up in a buggy game and hating it. I may cave in though. Anyone know if the fancy graphics have been turned on yet?

News Comments > Darkfall Online 14-Day Trial

Another thing I hate:

Your account will be created immediately and with a successful purchase or activation you can download and start playing Darkfall immediately.

Why the hell do they make you activate a trial before downloading it. The thing is several gigs in size. Let your users download it, install it, and patch it before requiring activation. Especially on a trial.

I've heard the same thing. I actually downloaded the trial but never paid the $1 to activate it, since I figure there's no point. From what I read, people were exploiting the game to skill up so they could at least stand a chance of surviving (the one I read about was swimming in rivers while AFK to level up swimming).

I really want a newer skill-based MMO, just not one that is hardcore PvP.

I wonder what the male / female ratio is. 1 to 1000?

I know that was tongue-in-cheek, but WoW seems to have a much higher female ratio than other MMOs. There's probably some stats on it somewhere. Wish I could go, if for nothing else than to get a pet.

Anyone know if Beat Hazard lets you remap your keys yet? I know they added azerty support, but it sounded like it was just hard coded in instead of a simple ini file or some other method to change key bindings. I hate WASD (I use ESDF). Feels funky to switch.

Nice additions to the game (solo PvE will be nice for a change). I think I'll login over the weekend and check it out.

All these sound wonderful, but what about a frickin' point to the game? The very first time you enter the game, you run a mission (solo). It's the one and only time you even see a glimpse of a story.

I think Perception makes it easier to spot traps. Or something like that. I know I read something about it. Maybe it makes them glow.

Stuck at a low resolution (1024x768, I believe). Kinda sucks. However, 4 hours later, I'm still playing. Just barely hit the first "go buy this game now!" screen. It was onsale at Impulse last week for around $18. Going to wait for another sale, if they ever have one.

I love my dreams. They take the form of games all the time. Same as you, Yosemite, I end up in an FPS. Usually there's respawning too. It's awesome. I don't ever have nightmares.

Is it just me or is the campaign portion of any RTS, aside from Homeworld, the always the worst part of the game?

Campaign portion of RTS games is why I buy them. I'm too old for multiplayer these days unless it's with friends. Blizzard single-player campaigns are always top-notch. I have no issue with them taking my money.

Fatal Failure on Caster's donate page.

Edit: Worked in IE. It seemed to fail while transfering to PayPal. I know PayPal works with FF, so dunno what's going on. The post page (to download) was also down due to server too busy. Doing a retry worked though.

No. Maybe $20. I got about 15 - 20 hours out of it before everything became too repetitive.
