News Comments > XCOM in March 2012
12. Re: XCOM in March 2012 Jun 3, 2011, 18:11 Nighthawk
 
I love the xcom series, but that kinda looked hookey, graphically, didn't appeal to me at all.
In an FPS model I would hope for something that had more of a bioshock atmosphere.

/just sayin

News Comments > Star Wars Games "Our Priority" - LucasArts
38. Re: Star Wars Games Jun 2, 2011, 21:18 Nighthawk
 
From the article:
In recent years, LucasArts hasnít always done a good job of making games.
Ok, admission, I like it.
I liked a lot of the old games too, everyone once in a while I install XW-Alliance, that because of the ship selection, didn't care TOO much for the story.
Should we luck out and have someone reading from LA reading the forum, here's my choices
- X-Wing type flight sim, latest generation, maybe storyline spanning the whole series (and official books?)
- Battlefront, watch the battlefield/CoD for inspiration, BF:BC2 for multi
---edit---
oh...ahem...do I need to mention PC gamers have been your backbone?

News Comments > Valve: Steam Good for Retail
14. Re: Valve: Steam Good for Retail May 10, 2011, 10:58 Nighthawk
 
NIN hits it right on.
I can't say I agree with the statement that steam is GOOD for retail, helped it maybe, but not good.
I think it's GOOD for the PC gaming industry.
I've purchased a few games (recently) that I wouldn't have done more than eyeball in a retail store because of steams sales.
Metro 2033, BF:BC2 + Vietnam, Galactic Adventures for Spore being the most recent.
At ~$5 a hit, for something I wanted to try, why not...I'm sure those are still $50 retail.
Maybe this will help shake things up a little...

Steam prices are generally high for new titles, but their "Sale weekends" are excellent.

Steam has encouraged a form of buying I started using with gogamer years ago: I'll gladly wait 6 months to a year, if I can get the game for $5-$20. And in turn, I also pickup stuff I normally wouldn't bother, as losing money on a $5 game is nowhere near as painful as losing money on a $50 one.

News Comments > Valve Done with the "Isolated Single-player Experience"?
3. Re: Valve Done with the Apr 25, 2011, 14:23 Nighthawk
 
So it's a matter of interpretation, does that mean it's all (human) multi player from now on?? or just having an AI partner.
I suspect that an "isolated single player experience" means goodbye to the single player gaming that made valve what they are today.
(ie Half Life, 2, Ep1/2, Portal) etc...
I sincerely hope not, because means RIP valve in my household..gamers tend to be tards online...

I'm not impressed with it.
The graphics are good, but there's too much taken from WoW, and it comes off as trying too hard.

It's not like it was going to be publicly released anytime soon.
They would have sat on it and it would have been filed away, there's too much profit on the treatments.
I would like to see the thief "leak" it to a public source, so a cure HAD to be released.

News Comments > DICE: PC Battlefield 3 Getting "Special Effort"
56. Re: DICE: PC Battlefield 3 Getting Jan 4, 2011, 07:38 Nighthawk
 
I reinstalled BF2 and 2142 in November and still enjoyed them, but what amazed me was the lack of a "special effort" in fixing the bugs that were there in launch.
2142 has this glitch where you can drop a mobile spawn point on the enemy titan and it couldn't be destroyed..so no more battlefield (or DICE) products on my PC anymore.

Tell that to all the people driving the T-Mobile Mazdaspeed 3 in Need for Speed World.
Or the Top Gear race (with billboards).
It might not convince me to buy them, but damn sure I notice them.

So how about that TSA?? Is it really that bad??
My neighbour was saying that he went down the florida and they're loving us Canadians down there just because we're spending money. I know that I would think twice about air travel in the US

How was Alpha Protocol? I keep eyeballing it for PS3.
As for the DLC, everyone knows that it'll come out for PC / PS3 at somepoint.

/laughed at the "Victim" being a PC gamer...so true.

News Comments > Retailers Versus Steam?
81. Re: Retailers Versus Steam? Nov 11, 2010, 16:49 Nighthawk
 
The trending aside, it's interesting to note the lack of names of these people and where they stand in the food chain...
It could be some low level schmuck spouting off.

That being said, I'm not seeing any problem with the digital system competition, a few choices away, D2D, Impulse, Steam, EADM and GFW:L ?
Doesn't seem like any more of a monopoly than usual in this business...

I do enjoy that last line (in the headline) B&M stores, they could give a coiling fart about the PC market...as I watch the PC section in EB shrink year after year...
Oh...and why am I paying the same price for a Box / DVD as for a download lacking shipping and packaging???

News Comments > Game Sales Figures
15. Re: Game Sales Figures Oct 16, 2010, 15:38 Nighthawk
 
I look at that comment and think you're looking at this the way I do...
We're the old school, back when we had games like Wasteland, long, big, thought out, reasonable graphics.
Then yes, the rock star bit...but some deserved it, ID software will always be a legend, cutting edge stuff with quake & doom.
Then we've been getting smaller games, had free "DLC" taken away and micro transactions becoming bigger.
I would say it's a trend away from the love to the money.

An example of such is down the page a bit....
The Controversial Saga Of The Zombie Massage Makers.
-shortened because it's being rejected as too long-

News Comments > 12 Million WoW Subscribers
33. Re: 12 Million WoW Subscribers Oct 7, 2010, 14:35 Nighthawk
 
It's funny to read the comments of people who are so out of touch with reality they are making up reasons proving deception...
Unique CC's isn't an accurate measure because you can have one CC paying for multiple accounts and still have 2 players (like parent / child players, or spouse players).
Gold farmers probably make up a decent number, but when they get banned they aren't active, read the description.
Active accounts and new purchase accounts are included.

Darks - proof (of lying numbers) or you're just trolling, just sayin...

This really only affects deployed troops, since anyone back home can just go to best buy or wherever and pick it up retail...or digitally.
And realistically, if someone in KAF wants it bad enough, it will get delivered there.

With all the going digital (which I am half against, I like my CD/DVD's) trends, has anyone noticed if the prices have been affected??
No mass production, no printed booklets, box, shipping..should seriously drop the purchasing price.
(away for quick check, steam vs best buy online)
Well, $10 less on Fallout 3 GOTY, and $10 MORE on Just Cause 2.
I'll let the details speak for themselves

News Comments > On Portal 2's Dropped Competitive Multiplayer
26. Re: On Portal 2's Dropped Competitive Multiplayer Aug 30, 2010, 16:52 Nighthawk
 
Complaining about the lack of realism and then quoting mythbusters isn't really helping your case much.
Name a competitive Valve game where the bullets go exactly where you aim them, damage isn't determined by a random number generator, and who hit whom isn't determined by a complex algorithm designed to compensate for ping.
Has nothing to do with drop rates, even the best marksman cannot hit the same location of a target with a single round.
Translate that into CS scenarios...
Movement, weight, heart rate, breathing, all affect where a round will hit, even a stationary shooter and target.
Long range shots (200m and more) are affected my wind.
If I was going to say anything I would say that valve is MORE realistic than the others.

All that being said...where do you think the money is made, on the 10% (probably high) of market that is competive gaming of the 90% of casual gamers looking for entertainment.
I would invest in the latter, the numbers don't lie.

So I'm guessing when he's not trolling the blues forums he's a weapons expert (NO bullets go where they aim, except maybe sniper rifles, mostly) and reversed engineered all of valves games...

How's YOUR game doing? Because valves has 129,126 people playing CS, CS:S, TF2, legally, according to steam's "Current Players" number, not counting the losers that play pirated versions.

Maybe you should step up before taking someone else down
