This game is stupid. Everyone that plays it must be stupid.

Huh.. I didn't know there were that many stupid people

Actually, there are a lot more stupid people than there are UT2k4 players, just read some of Blue's "Story of the day" links. For instance, Someone got charged for stealing 0.2 worth of power the other day.

I think Monty Python nails it: "The general public are idiots".

Fun as UT2004 is I really hope the modding community takes off this time. Considering the potential of the UT2003 engine fuck all of any quality came of it.

I'll keep repeating it, Red Orchestra is a UT2003/4 mod.
it is also the best, most realistic, and awesome WW2 game ever released. beta 2.0 is coming in mid-april, and is gonna have MG's My video below doesnt do it any justice, but youll get a glimpse of the game atleast If you really want to know how it is , go to www.redorchestramod.com and download beta 1.2 for ut2003

I actually didnt play it that much, we just had a few lan-parties with tons of fun on that map, just a hang-up I guess, I've never played Quake or Q2 much online at all, since I didnt have an internet connection at the time. It was purely a LAN thing, like my experience with RTCW, i cant stand it online, but I've had some GREAT lan games.

Full priced? It was only 20 bucks retail, and I got mine for $15 at Best Buy which had a sale running the same week it was released

Its priced as a full-priced expansion (such as Opposing force for HL, or brood war for SC) except usually , these expansions have CONTENT in them, not jus 5 maps and 2 new weapons etc. so 20$ is a total rip-off for something not even worth the damn download. It was like paying for a patch.

And now, they are nice enough (atleast where i live) to slap '42 and Road to Rome into one pack, and sell it at FULL PRICE, same as NEW games..
gg dice.

EDIT: also, when I say infantry combat sucks, I wasnt talking about the maps, I'm saying it suck because of how the weapons are made hit detection (lack of)etc.

Dice lost all their credibility with their 5-map , full priced Road to Rome "Expansion pack" for BF42. their physics/engine sucks ass, infantry combat is laughable at best, and they wont let anyone make a good mod, due to lack of "modability".



BFV no thanks, if I want a war game, I'd still go with UT2004 and Red Orchestra, which makes Call of Duty look just WEAK.


EDIT:teh Gr4mmar5 was bad

Now heres a game that should have mission pack pricing

Youve got to be kidding me!, this DVDSE version of game is a STEAL dude, even if you do have UT2003, youll get a 10$ discount, 100 levels , 6 gamemodes lots of mutators,a headset, 100hrs Mod tutorials on video, and of course hi quality Mods like Red Orchestra a month later..

EDIT: oh and its 39.99 the SE is +20$ but you can get it for the same price some places!

News Comments > [H]ardOCP Versus Infinium Labs
15. Re: No subject Mar 3, 2004, 16:20 BicycleRepairMan
 
Ok, more seriously...

I read the article, and infiniums letter, and I have to say, I'm not all that sure about this one. I mean, HardOCP DOES cross the line, from simply reporting the facts, to drawing conclusions and present them as facts, which is a dangerous game to play. Also, [H] doesnt deny that inf. labs had invited them to their offices, and they dont comment that infinuim stated that some of the phantom images were real, and not 3d renders, and they havent corrected it, Also Infinium labs claims they have profiled their production company on their website, yet the HardOCP article says "That fact may make you wonder where the Phantom console is actually being developed. " implying they havent found any proof of its production

The article is also quite clearly making it look like the WorldCom scandal is part of Mr.Roberts "a past history of bankruptcies" which I found very strange, even before reading infiniums letters..

All that being said, I dont think the Phantom console will ever see daylight, I mean, look at exsisting consoles, Xbox, gamecube, they are both fighing hard, even if they do have 2 of the worlds biggest sofware companies to back them up.. I just dont think there's room for "another console noones heard of"

You can mail order an upgrade disc for $10 from the RWS web site.

Thx for the info, but i was thinking I might pick it up from a bargain bin someday, if I'm bored. I wont bother mail ordering i think, besides, I live in europe, so I dont know if it even works,and if it does I bet shipping is like 30$.. but thanks anyway.

Postal 2 was alot of fun IMO, not the best game ever, but it managed to get me laughing a couple of times, which is not usual for games.. Besides, I really enjoyed the ending, among other things.

I tried the STP demo, and I thought it sucked, so I wont buy the whole game again just for that.. maybe if it gets under 10$ or so, and there are still servers out there, but not otherwise.

News Comments > NVIDIA & DOOM 3
85. Re: John Carmacks Revenge.. Mar 2, 2004, 10:59 BicycleRepairMan
 
But if history is any indicator, Doom3 engine games will outnumber HL2 engine games like 10 to 1.

Well, DOOM3 doesnt have a server-client system, which sucks for multiplayer..(well blizzard has some good client-client games.. so maybe not.. still, Allthough alot of people seems to have alot against it right now, HL2's edge may turn out to be Steam, for developers, because theyll (maybe..) become a "purchase and download" for every HL2 owner, and for gamers because of seemless patching, and friends, where you can join your buddies easily.

Its difficult to say what will be the biggest engine looks like DOOM3 will be out first atleast..

heh these announcements make me giggle. Why couldnt they just send out a press release saying:

"NVIDIA has payed id so much money, that id will make sure to say NVIDIA is the best, regardless of their actual opinions."

I'm not a fanboy of either brands, its all buisness ofcourse,and ATI does the same things, and NVIDIA also does cool stuff ofcourse, like the "NVIDIA Make Something Unreal" contest etc. but I just think its funny.

News Comments > Steam Plans
23. Re: Steam sucks Feb 26, 2004, 12:56 BicycleRepairMan
 
Raven737 has some very valid points there. especially since HL2 is most likely gonna be a VERY popular game, and if or more correctly when they shut down WON, people who still play CS, (ALOT of people) will get steam, if they dont have it already.. the point is.. Steam will probably become almost as common as some the big MS-programs, maybe measuring up to stuff like outlook etc.

If this happens, taking siege in valves offices , either through hacking or by physical force, may be a shortcut to one of the most damaging economical terror attack you can achieve.. having the possibility to permanently damage something like every 5th computer in the world ..

I'm usually of the less paranoid kind, probably ont the border to naive, and I wouldnt mind this if steam was a small program, but the exposure itself actually makes it a valid target for large-scale cyber-terrorism, I wonder if valve has thought this through properly. Or if they are more on the "Its cool, we're just making fun games easier to distribute"-attitude

Hey, Bicycle Man

You should spend less time hyping your mod and more time fixing your website for those that want to see what all the hype is about. It's dead!!

I don't think it's his site, he's just a big fan on it...

Correct, Its not in any way my mod or my site, Im just a fan of the mod. the website went down today, for the first time in my memory, so its probably for a redesign or something.. i dont know, but it'll probably be back up real soon. The reason I keep hyping it, is because IMO its the best game/mod ever, and I think I can safely say I've tried a whole lot of mods. Unfortunatly the number of players is rather low.. so I'm trying to spread the word to those who still think Call of Duty is the best ww2 game.

BF:Vietnam: More historical inaccuracy, from the company who made a full-priced addon consisting of 5 new maps. helicopters.

CS:CZ: 10 new counterstrike maps.

15. Re: yeh Feb 25, 2004, 11:47 BicycleRepairMan
 
I'll be the first to admit it, I still play CStrike quite a bit. I'm confused about what's in CS:CZ and I'm only interested in playing online (ala traditional CS). Is there ANY value in picking this game up? Does it enhance multiplay CS in any way? If I don't pick this up, will I be able to DL the "new" maps? Anyone have information on this?

I think you need CZ to play the CZ maps.. how steam is gonna tell the difference between CZ maps and custom maps is beyond me.. I have to say I've been following valve's games quite closely, and I've always been able to answer people about differences with mod/retail, patches etc. but I think finally, valve has managed to confuse me too. Its getting hard to be a helpful gamer..

Best advice I can give, is probably "Download the UT2004 demo instead" or "Download Red Orchestra for UT2003"
