News Comments > Global Agenda Turns Two
6. Re: Global Agenda Turns Two Jan 31, 2012, 09:03 Armengar
 
I play and like it. The learning curve isnt too bad. There are two distinct bits, below level 30 and above level 30. The skill levels improve above 30 so dont rush to level.

The great thing is, you arent hamstrung much by being "free". You cant use the auction house (not really necessary for below 30 players) and you cant mail each other to swap kit (you sell items by attaching the item and mailing with COD).

You can pay about $10 to unlock these features and get double XP per mission (slows the grind for XP) and get more loot drops.

In short, give it a go. Perhaps think about paying the $10 if you like it (but dont race to beyond 30!). I havent mentioned boosters, dont worry about them, they add more XP and more loot. Only the truly dedicated get boosters really.

There is enough PVE and PVP to keep you going for a while. The "guild wars" agency vs agency is a bit crap but stops things going stale.

The piracy comment doesnt apply here. They offered refunds. Many took them up on the offer.

I have just short of 500 hours logged on SOTS1 easily being my "most played game" (although some of that is probably "left PC on overnight"). I did the sensible thing and watched the forums. This game was a trainwreck from the start and was so obviously defective. They should have come clean and allowed a "half price beta" launch or something. They wouldnt have had the refunds issue and their PR wouldnt have taken such a dive.

As is, I wont be buying till I see it in a steam sale for 10

I thought this game might be a viable alternative to natural selection (could never get on with NS2 gave up on that earlier this year). A decent commander will easily steamroller the opposition, then a few people leave and its game over. In fact all it takes is a team that isnt full and you've lost already.

There isnt a "combat" type mode so again, just like NS if your commander is crap then you lose.

Pass.

RE: WyldKat

Assuming mph means you live in the UK. Sentencing guidelines would say 100 in a 60 would be hard to avoid a short ban. I'd hazard 400 fine, 30-50 day ban depending on how much of an arse you are in court, 50 victim "fine". Your insurance would go through the roof.

100 in 70 is mitigatable to avoid the ban but certainly circa 250 fine (plus 50) and maybe 4-6 points if you are lucky.

God help you if it was raining as they might tack a DWDCA so its a ban + points and a double fine. Cause'd someone else to swerve or tailgate? Thats DD so automatic long ban (and it stays on your licence for double), 1k fine (+50) and possibly jailtime.

104 is the magic number, then jail time or even pass it up to CC as its an each way offence.

It's good that this game is based on the real World of Darkness.

Now, as for playing a mortal? Only if I get to play a Buffy-type.

vampires are pussies. Wake me when Mage comes out.

Doesn't matter to me what it looks like. We are still in the middle of the newest DRM BS that Ubisoft caused on themselves and others with From Dust. No sale.

same as you really. Once burned, no more sales to me.

News Comments > Gabe Newell on EA vs. Steam
43. Re: Gabe Newell on EA vs. Steam Aug 18, 2011, 03:59 Armengar
 
cant agree with you there zef, nearly all the games I have bought on steam have been in a sale. They certainly arent shitty old games - I generally wait about 4-5 months before purchasing. It is a buyers market, you can always trawl the internet for a cheaper alternative.

I have yet to purchase steam keys from other countries - not sure if that is against some rules but this is a possibility if it is legal.

That being said, I like the approach of steam. I am a digital squirrel and have never traded a game in, so for me it is great but then again there are reasons other people wont like steam. Thats the beauty of choice.

plus if they are true copies then the lighting, wind, occlusion will all be to cock so as said previously they will still need to be rendered (which is what kills the gfx)

I'll judge on merit. Minecraft was cheap enough to warrant a punt. Turned out ok and I had a good laugh. Oddly enough ive lost interest now - no matter how good it is. That being said, he got my cash and I got a decent amount of fun for it.

Scrolls might be the same, it depends how cheap it is.

what a load of shit. If people are stupid enough to put sensitive information onto the internet then what do they expect? I have *never* used my real DOB, Name, Place of birth etc on any forum, survey, facebook type thing ever. Not that do fill in surveys etc.

Isnt it obvious to people that if you put something about you on the internet then people will mine it for info? Its the same with mail in competitions, all of a sudden you get more spam through the post, coincidence?

Loonies.

News Comments > Arma 2: Reinforcements Next Month
11. Re: Arma 2: Reinforcements Next Month Mar 4, 2011, 15:29 Armengar
 
I bought this for cheap during the steam sales. I loved op flash but arma2 seems too fiddly to me. op flash seems smoother and less buggy (and that was a hell of a buggy game to being with).

The other rip off code masters one (dragon rising I think) seemed more polished and worked but was a bit too arcadey.

I wish I could merge the two.

All I have to say is that they need to make it so that you can get out of your ship, FP style and go into buildings within cities, buy/sell/explore, get in vehicles. A modern day translation of this game just won't do.


There was a game like this - mercenary 2 I think it was. Was quite hard and good for the time.

monitor one "torrent". Multiply by estimate of torrents, multiply by estimated cost per torret. Good old neilsen logic.
