I hardly consider it whining when potential customers want to see a map that's actually representative of Battlefield. They had Caspian Border in the beta for like 2 days and it was locked down by a password and was only on like 30 servers, constantly full. EA rep even bitched that people were sharing the password, fsking seriously??? Is it so wrong to want to play an actual BATTLEFIELD map???

I was able to get on it a few times and if I hadn't got to mess around in it at all I probably would have passed on the game. Metro, while fun, just isn't Battlefield at all.

Do think its remotely possible that that DICE had good reasons, from a technical perspective, to choose the maps they did? They are NOT obligated, particularly in a beta, to give people whats "representative" of the full game. If that was their intent, it would be called a "demo". They're doing actual testing for server loads etc. If the game ships without thorough testing the same assholes crying now would be the first to run to the forums bitching about that. Its lose-lose for DICE. I realize DICE/EA have been dicks in the past but, FFS, let the game ship before starting this foot stomping "I am NOT pleased" mentality.

IMO using betas as a perk for pre-orders is a mistake that ends up doing exactly what its doing now, making people feel entitled to act like whining babies. I didnt enjoy the game as it is in beta so I am not going to play until its released because this beta is already coloring my opinion.

Re: 128 player servers: This is akin to altering a doctors med RX by upping the dosage expecting it to work even better. They made the game, they MIGHT just know what the system limitations are and how many players a map will comfortably accommodate for an optimal game.

I played a grand total of 2 minutes. It was apparent that people were using vegetation hacks aplenty (I wont even try to guess what else was being used). Add to that bad performance on my somewhat dated PC (yes, its a beta) and lastly, I realized Im sick to death of military based shooters. I tried the 360 versiom and was bored to death. I waited years for BF3 only to find that I've had enough....for the time being anyhow.

News Comments > PC Piracy and DRM Analysis

"But the fact that more companies are imposing it strongly suggests that they believe it works.

I wanna bite my fucking hand off.

DRM is included to placate shareholders and allow upper management to have the box checked off - "are we doing something about piracy to protect our shareholders?" - and thats ALL its for. They know damned well that losses are negligible when you use people whove actually PAID for games in the past vs. the guy from East Fuckstick Romania who would have NEVER been able to afford the game. DRM suppliers know this as well.

I hope these assholes die the slow, clueless death that the music industry middlemen are facing now. Change your business model or get another profession because its clear you cocksuckers (suits) havent a clue as to what the fuck you are doing.

In closing, I hope you all hit a bridge abutment and die by immolation.

Thank you and good evening,

A mechwarrior game that is being released on xbox360? How sim-like can it possibly be given the limiations of the xbox360 controller and xbox360 action oriented demographic?

The 360 controller isn't "limited". I'll play Mechwarrior: Living Legends once in awhile with one and it works fine. re; the demographic- Weisman isn't going to allow whatever publisher they choose to water down the gameplay (he walked out on a powerful position at MS because of creative differences). Also, Mechassault showed that while it was a good game, it had no staying power. Simulations that require some thought, patience and a challenging-but-fair learning curve retains a community and longevity.

Lastly, if they piss off the BT community, it'll have the same effect Tribes community had on Tribes Vengeance....it'll tank horribly.

Reading some of the tweets of the team, it looks like they will be trying to have a special edition controller.

Outside of that, the gamepad is a lot more flexible than you think. Derek Smart managed to get it to work for one of his sims that came out on 360 (yes, he actually accomplished something). Gamepad wont be as immersive as a stick but it can definitely hold its own. I used one for MW Living Legends mod and it worked fine.

Theres also several sticks on the market for the 360. The best one came with the last Ace Combat title.

Sorry for the convoluted news Stephen. The IP is my favorite.

to everyone else- Weisman seems to have full confidence in these guys and they seem to be truly interested in the game we've always wanted. I think they'll do a good job.

How much you wanna bet that this is the result of a decision by the scumbags the public calls "attorneys"?


I'd bet good money.
Attorneys do what they're told. The attorney created the original license that these guys signed. Someone else made the decision to enforce whatever clause is being used to terminate. Since this was licensed, and assuming it was going to be sold and not released for free, it would have been free money for Gearbox. Someone else decided this wasn't worthwhile, not an attorney.

As the story clearly stated even before the update, the development team put the project on hold, Gearbox did not order them to stop.

I should have clarified...I meant to say it must have been something that gearbox attorneys must have required that caused such a reaction.

"Making"??

That's a pretty broad definition of the word.

By that same logic are people being held hostage and being forced to play the free games (ie. TF2) Valve distributes?

Its just another ploy of the NEW WORLD ORDER MAAAAANNN!

lol really what a fucking idiot.

I don't get it. Why?

They set out to make a great game that people want to play instead of just focusing on selling copies. That's...kind of what we want, right?

I get the impression that there'd be a thread full of people saying how stupid this guy was no matter what he'd said here.

I think someone mentioned it alreadt but, do you understand that making such a statement when you are working for a publicly held company is beyond moronic? I absolutely guarantee that upper management is doing damage control as we speak. Shareholders investing millions in the company don't want to hear that one of the game leads could give a shit about returns on investments.

such big balls for someone who knows they'll be getting paid incredibly well whether the game is a success or not. Go start your own studio tough guy and see how much you run your mouth when your first game will make or break you.

Sure. If the crippled version of BC2 they released for the PC is the most they can do, I pity them and those that bought the game.

In what way was BC2 "crippled" on the PC?

There needs to be more games like Hard Reset. Just a fun, simple mindless shooter that lets you blow off steam at the end of the day.

Only complaint is that its too short.

I wouldn't go wireless in a million years so I guess I'm an "asshole".

Just bought a new mouse myself. Went from a G9x to a CM Spawn (one of the thumb buttons was dying). These Corsair mice have the same sensor as the G9x I believe, which means they have inherent negative acceleration, so buyer beware. Only issue I'm having with the new one is avoiding pressing middle mouse when I want to scroll. I'm used to the stupidly stiff wheel of the old mouse I guess.

I've talked to other people who still use wired mice and 9/10 times its more of a psychological thing with them. I suppose I can understand that but I still get ticked when ppl claim the accuracy issue is still significant, which it isn't.

Seph, I'm mostly wired as well, not because of any other reason that my router etc still works and Im a cheapskate :). I just go through mice pretty often which is why Im wireless in that area.
