News Comments > NVIDIA 400 Series Reviews
18. Re: NVIDIA 400 Series Reviews Mar 27, 2010, 11:49 Shataan
I remember back in the day when we had loads of AAA titles being released on a regular timely basis, and the games drove the cards. Now? We have very few DX 11 games, and all we hear about is what card is more powerful.

WTF cares what card is more gutzy? Without a crapload of games to showcase the cards hp, it is all pretty moot imo. Now we are paying upwards of 600 to 700 bucks to play very few dx 11 games, and by the time more finally arrive, 2 more Next Gen vid card offerings are already out.

Makes sense right? All well and good if? If there are loads of AAA dx 11 games. And we prolly gotta wait 2 years for that.

News Comments > F.3.A.R. Revealed?
17. Re: Quit making the wrong one! Mar 24, 2010, 18:51 Shataan
I liked very little of the 1st FEAR. It had awesome fire effects, character design and A.I., sound, and the bullet time effect. That was it. These things were exceptionally well done considering it was Monolith.

Level design? All inside in featureless cement hallways/ducts. Scaffolding etc etc etc. Story? lolol Squad assault team against a paranormal wet girl? I guess that is what sells. But ya coulda fooled me. ;p

News Comments > Bad Company 2 Posthumous Penalties

"Goddam exploiters are ruining it for the rest of us."

When are peeps gonna finally realize that it will always be this way? The day a dev team makes a game that can`t be exploited in any way, that will be the day that we see games that are virtually no fun to play, because there will be way too many restrictions.

Blame the players.

What would be cool is if the game itself could know/tell if a peep used an exploit, and could permanently ban that player. Of course this won`t happen. But it`d be cool if it could be done.

I loved ARMA 2s visuals etc etc etc. But gave up on it cause quite frankly, the sp campaign sucked ball. I don`t buy games for the editor either. If they ever actually release something with a decent campaign, I might give it a try.

Ya know, when I got my Samsung 2233RZ 120 hz monitor, I tried the nVidia glasses. What a joke. It does do 3D alright, at way too high a cost. That cost being how dark the screen gets when viewing thru the glasses. And the total washout of all those high rez textures we are paying to see.

I did buy the Samsung 120 hz monitor, but nVidia can keep their glasses. LOL

I have played alot of Milcombat games. But only 1 rose above the others for sheer fun, and excitement. And that was Vietcong. There is absolutely nothing like jungle warfare man.

I can`t believe we have had to wait this freaking long for a next gen Nam experience.

I love the game. It is everything 1999 was, and way way more. Rebellion did an amazing job of this AVP. But there are still a few bug fixe patches and optimizations to deal with. I hope we get a patch soon.

" We actually have a big PC-focused team just working on the PC version of the game."

Is there a sprint/prone/lean/crouch function in the game?

"Pretty much comes down to Vultching, wait for 2 people to go at it and just kill the victor before he's done, thats what everyones doing and yea its lame.."

Funny you say this. Cause basicly DM IS Quaking.... right? In DM that is what peeps do. I doubt in a DM we will ever see anyone just stand back and wait till others are finished their engagements, and then go for the victor.

In DM almost anything is fair game. Accept for glitching etc etc etc. As for waiting for 2 peeps to go at it? Same thing, players are stealthing thru the map and happen upon an engaging pair or group. It happens. Take advantage. *shrugs* Or you can wait like the chivalrous peeps you may be, and some enterprising Pred or Alien player with stealth YOU, and get the win.

Again, that`s DM. DM has always been that way. I have been killed alot in the demo, and not once did it feel lamer. Infact, it felt the complete opposite. It was awesome. Ya don`t hand out lamer comments, ya give a high 5er to the peep who got ya.

News Comments > AvP Demo Released Early
50. well.... Feb 4, 2010, 17:54 Shataan
"Bitching about connection problems on a pre-release demo is a bit pointless"

I disagree, cause if ya can`t connect, ya can`t try the demo.... right? Anyways, I myself have gotten to play just once so far since d/ling last night. Played as Marine, and I found I really like what I am experiencing with just the 1 play.

Not bad for a pretty well feature barren demo. Can`t wait for the final release.

Finally, a Nam game done right.... hopefully. Way too many ww2 scenarios out there, yet we have to fight for a few well done Nam games. Makes no sense.

News Comments > Why Shooters Need Dedicated Servers
9. Re: Why Shooters need Dedicated Servers Jan 5, 2010, 12:34 Shataan
"Hosting the game on your computer puts you at a very great advantage. You will have the lowest effective ping in the game (approximately ~20ms). It's the host's computer that decides the outcome of every battle, which means that what the host is seeing on his screen is the closest to what the registration algorithm thinks is actually happening."

I disagree. As host you still carry the burden of processing all the other players info as well as the game world itself. This as well means having to process THEIR lag. How is this an advantage?

Now, IF you had a dedicated pc in your home runng the server, and you linked to it, then, maybe then you might have the actual advantage. Cause then you`d be closest to the server, and you wouldn`t be carrying that burden of processing the game world, the other players with their lag, and your own.

The last thing peeps wanna do is host. I`d rather join a server, or host a dedicated server from an exra house PC. If ya feel hosting makes you allpowerful and omnipotent, well.....

"He has no idea the repercussions of his demands. The end result is a tyrannical police state"

we don`t know if Bono actually made that statement. But no matter who did, you are right. Chinas efforts to curb internet access eh? Well if that was adopted over here, we would have a Dictatorship tyrannical police state.

Actually when you add political correctness into the situation we are already heading in that direction.

Would whoever possibly made that statement care? I dought it. Say it was Bono for example. He is a stinking rich poli-musician now. And the rich could care less if the buyer base hands get slapped. Cause they are the creative talent and it is their right blah blah blah blah. Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely.

With the amount of lawyers out there protecting artists these days, I doubt any artist is hurting at the Bank. What they are wanting is every last EXTRA sheckle they can squeeze now. And they wouldn`t blink an over who they gotta walk over, bad peeps and good, to get their desires met.

"You need only look at Rebellion's track record to see that they have consistently produced mediocre and bad games for years now."

I don`t care about their track record of other games. All I know is that I (and many) loved AVP Jaguar and PC version. Hardly perfect games, but both had that special something, that Monolith couldn`t reproduce.

I think it is awesome that Rebellions got the chance to do a next gen AVP. And so far by the looks/sounds etc etc etc, they are nailing it. Rebellions AVPs are so fondly remembered by the gaming community, do ya really think they wanna drop the ball with this release?

I suppose anything is possible. But I think it`d be highly unlikely. As always the proof is in the final release play, but diiiiamn, it is looking too sweet so far. My vote is for Rebellion for the win. ;p
