News Comments > Quoteworthy - Epic on Unreal

19. Re: Quoteworthy - Epic on Unreal Jul 23, 2011, 11:30 Shataan
"Why do people keep asking for this for every old game in existence?"

Yup, because those specific old games rocked harder than anything pretty well today. It might be as well that those older games didn`t have vehicles to totally overbalance the gameplay, and let certain f*cktards ramp up points cause they were a tad lacking in their onfoot skillz.

I loved Unreal till the vehicle emphesis came about. I`d love to see fewer vehicles, and more onfoot backtobasics. Totally loved the jump pad stuff. And low grav maps.

Those games bring fond memories. Oh we`ll have some memories of certain games of today I am sure. Memories of how some total f*ckhead dev added remote control car bombs, and remote helis and stuff, and other sundry cheap ass unbalance tactics so some other ingame scroowhead can get their jollies, while many others get raped ad infinitum.

I`d rather look back at when devs were cool tho, and made cooler games.

News Comments > Battlefield 3 Paris Multiplayer Trailer

15. multiplayer animations.... Jul 22, 2011, 09:16 Shataan
whats up with that? The movement animations in the vid do NOT look as smooth and realistic as the sp game animations. Infact, nowhere near imho. I hope they fix that.

I know it is early and all, but I expected to see the same movement animations....... the vid looks to be just same ol same ol. Not impressed.

News Comments > More on BF3 and Steam

174. Steam..... Jul 18, 2011, 21:44 Shataan
I have Steam these days for the convenience. Ain`t real happy that BF 3 won`t be on Steam. But I am intrigued enough to work around this b/s issue.

I just hope that games not coming on Steam does NOT become the norm. Then it is back to the literal PITA of waiting for games, not getting a copy cause some freaks can stay home and stalk the counters instead of being at work like most of us.... the abysmal wait for Canadians cause we seem to be the literal ass end of the game delivery world....

It is cool these days to not have a room or closet full of boxes. I really dig that. No more scratched disc worries etc.

I sure hope BF 3 is worth the extra hassle.

News Comments > Battlefield 3 Specs?

23. well finally.... Jul 8, 2011, 15:44 Shataan
Game devs for so long now have been using the term "Next Gen" with just about anything that was coming out. But with BF 3 we might be finally GETTING a real Next Gen gaming experience.

This might actually be the 1st game to warrant upgrading for.

News Comments > Arma X Released

8. Re: Arma X Released Jul 5, 2011, 09:14 Shataan
I have always loved ARMA 2. OA etc. But I am tired of having to manually set the exthreads, the cpu core amounts in commandlines, and having to manually set the right amount of vram memory for the game. It is amazing how ya gotta tweak this game so much to get it to play nice nice with your rig these days.

For me to go with the next ARMA, I gotta see way better out of the box performance optimizations. And a much streamlined AI command system, along with the A.I. being more self autonomous.

Not interested in micromanaging = baby sitting the squadies anymore.

News Comments > Op Ed II

5. Re: Op Ed II Jun 29, 2011, 09:13 Shataan
Well, they had better start banning violent movies then right? I don`t suppose anyone is looking at the bigger picture here. WHEN pray tell is the madness gonna end?????

Where is the line gonna be drawn finally??? I personally choose life, and would rather take my chances then to constantly have to be bent over backwards by peeps deciding for me and mine what is good, what is bad. History has shown only to well, if these guys are allowed to wave the wand and make these decisions, they won`t ever stop. And our quality of life is gonna go down the crapper because of it.

News Comments > Tribes Ascend Will Be F2P, Gameplay Trailer

39. Re: Tribes Ascend Will Be F2P, Gameplay Trailer Jun 28, 2011, 09:24 Shataan
"Once skiing was discovered, Tribes got really fast without any mods. Look up Tribes Legacy on Youtube. All that stuff is vanilla Tribes. I thought the movement in the T:A video was actually a bit slow. Reminded me of T2 more than T1."

I know all about it man. I was there when it was discovered. Well at the time. But, not everyone ie all Classes did not ski equal speedwise. What I am talking about was the 1 particular mod where you could jet pack extremely fast anywhere and not use skiing at all. THAT kinda fast.

Tribes did get faster for certain Classes once the skiing thing was exploited yeah.

As always, everything is good in moderation. For the record, someone below mention how the peeps who enjoyed Tribes back in the day are in their 20s/30s now. hehhhe I am 49 this year. You guys must have been sneaking onto Dads pc to play Tribes back then.

I`ll try to keep an open mind, bu8t if they blow this when they have Tribes 1 as a blueprint on how to do it right, I`d be sadly surprised.

News Comments > Tribes Ascend Will Be F2P, Gameplay Trailer

17. Re: Tribes Ascend Will Be F2P, Gameplay Trailer Jun 27, 2011, 18:26 Shataan
erm, don`t really wanna see Tribes does Quake fps vids, what I wanna see is peeps setting up defences, the Classes, a few vehicles, fewer the better. That kinda thing. I hope it sticks to the Tribes way. Really hope they don`t do to Tribes what adding all the vehicles did to Unreal Tourney.

Btw, the vid is less than convincing, for me anyways. Tribes originally was NOT UBER fast..... gameplaywise. It did get hella faster with a few mods etc. I forget the name of the faster than heck mod, but that was truly a fun diversion away from the actual game.

I will keep my eye on this, to see if it even comes close to Tribes 1 feel.

News Comments > More from Jim Redner

7. the sad truth is..... Jun 23, 2011, 09:13 Shataan
Companies and the masses in general WANT to be bullshitted to. Peeps with real integrity do NOT rise in the ranks. The B/S Artists do tho. Once they scroow up, it is off to a new job where they can start the whole B/S process all over again.

So Redner won`t be out of work for long. B/S is like job camo for these types. And because the World thrives on as much B/S as the ears can handle, it is spin doctor heaven.....

There is the way that we want the world to be... and then there is the way the world REALLY is.

"and if youíre going to turn on the waterworks when your game is trashed, you should not be in an industry"

or better yet, just make a good game. I am really starting to feel that the devs these days are so high on themselves they can do no wrong in their own eyes. And invariably we seem to more often than not be getting what they feel is enough to give, and what they feel is a great game.

But imo they are a tad out of touch with the gamer/buyer base of today. We are a Far Cry from the old days where there was healthy competition, and the games were not made by rock star attitudes. And the dev teams had ideas..... fresh ideas.

Unlike today where we gotta see FEAR after FEAR etc, or COD 4,5,6, etc. We seem to be in the " Hey lets just keep doing sequels" era. As for DUKE, well we all know it was rockstar Ego that spelled DKFs 10+ year demise. You definately do not get accolades for such a monumental screwup.

But I am sure that today in the Boardroom somewhere, there is no lack of back patting, and ass kissing, more than enough to make em all feel like the game was a success.

News Comments > PC Lead Platform on Tribes Ascend

19. Re: PC Lead Platform on Tribes Ascend Jun 22, 2011, 00:03 Shataan
Tribes 1 will never be equaled imo. Oh you can easilly copy the look, but as soon as you scroow with the gameplay as it WAS, you`ll kill what Tribes was all about.

This is where the other supposed sequels failed. Keep the gameplay and balancing intact to the original, and it might have a chance.

News Comments > Betting on Duke Pays Off

24. welll imo..... Jun 19, 2011, 11:11 Shataan
50 bucks 10 years ago, got you a way better game, and way more actual gameplay content. So, does it REALLY pay off to bet on Duke? Highly doubtful. Looks like great propaganda tho. Another opportunity to pat themselves on the back.

The best props would just have been to release an amazing game.

When are these devs gonna let go of the dead girl thing? They`d be able to make a more desirable game experience sans the Jap dead chick rip off. Imo.

News Comments > DNF Review Dust Up

86. ya know.... Jun 15, 2011, 16:56 Shataan
if the dev and or publishers would just make better games instead of relying on marketing hype for sales.... there would be way better releases qualitywise on all levels.

But I suppose it is alot easier to stroke their own egos, bullshit the buyerbase etc. That is, until the masses are playing their 59 buck boat anchor.

They don`t have to give anyone any 15 hour + gameplay experiences anymore. Ya gotta pay for maps now. And weap upgrades, the list doth go on and on.

Eventually this is all gonna catch up with them. Sooner or later it always does. They are gonna have to do much better soon, cause most gamers are eventually gonna wiseup, and decide finally, they are from Missourri.

Show me 1st. Or STFU.

Game Producers and Marketers are the next polititions. Ya can`t trust em it seems.

If they really cared bout a franchise or licence, you`d see it in the final release. Proof is always in the pudding.... peeps. ;p
