12. Re: what about free aditions? Aug 16, 2003, 09:27 SacredGinmill
 
The PS bomber and T2 bomber are only similar in the fact that they both drop bombs and have seats for 3 people. The liberator was such a mess. The Pilot has no after burner and you had to be flying almost level in order to bomb, WTF. The bomber seat just bombs. The tailgunner, which is your ONLY defense, can not even see the entire area behind the aircraft.

The T2 bomber is so much more fun to play. The pilot has afterburners which require some skill to use since they can drain your shields. The bomber seat has a belly gun which is extremely useful against scouts if the pilot knows what he is doing. Finally the tailgunner seat has a bunch of options depending on the backpack the guy is wearing (Repair, ammo, jammer) and can also be used to pick up flag carriers.

Also, notice how all the content added since release, including what is planned for the expansion, is usable by all empires. Which means they don't have to worry about designing and balancing different empire specific weapons and vehicles and perks. Nice way to save on production costs, but will make the game boring, boring, boring.

Like ColoradoHoudinin said, everything in the game is boring and uninspired. The server population is reflecting this. I bet they have lost half thier players at least. The first month the game was out, you could find decent fights during the day and many massive battles in the evenings. Before I quit 2 weeks ago, you had empty base captures during the day, and in the evening, maybe 1 continent out of 10 would have a massive battle. When this expansion is added, the surface world (which is supposed to reap the rewards of the underground fighting) will be a ghost town.

that right side display rises as you draft other cars. When it turns red, you hit the nitrous button and go real fast.

"TR is a compact social hub of activity but game play focuses on instantiated adventures for a party of players."

This sounds like a great idea, he should call it "Battle.Net"

was the original Pirates! the one where you actually grew old, and it effected your swashbuckling and in the end is what caused the game to end?

4. monthly fee May 5, 2003, 18:11 SacredGinmill
 
Still no information on how much the monthly fee will be. I just hope Sony realizes that they MUST announce the amount of the monthly fee by May 20th. (a charge on my credit card does not count as an announcement, BTW) They probably have known what the fee will be for a year now.

27. Re: Eh? Did they just say Apr 12, 2003, 16:54 SacredGinmill
 
I thought the environments in the video looked horrible. It looks like more of the same drawn-out-just-to-make-you-walk-far boring environments from every other MMORPG. What is the deal with the bandit camp looking like some sort of cheesy Alamo sitting in the middle of a grass field? Are these the kind of environments we should expect in this game?

Is it ok to warez a game that you purchased but can not play due to CD protection issues? I don't mean just getting a fixed .exe file. I mean returning the game, getting your money back and playing the warez version instead? Who is this hurting since you can't play the game anyway.

70% of the world has not made a phone call

I suppose using RogerWilco to communicate with my friend 7 states away while we simultainiously man a Hind helicopter in the Desert combat mod of Battlefield 1942 is out of the question?

Hah, you said that, and I thought to myself, "Hmm, let me check my hotmail account, the one I use to sign up for spam magnet type things on the internet" and guess what, I got accepted too. But I have to send them my adress for a CD? lame.

"graphically stunning environments"

Hmm if they release it at the end of the year, and even though I have seen not a single screen shot, I think the game looks dated, about 2 years to be exact.

I assume you just returned it to the store, since the item was defective. I would have done that before even bothering calling anyone.

16 players, heh. that is 8 per team. 4 players on offense and 4 on defense. Arent the maps on this really huge? I guess fighting the enemy will be like playing doom against your friend using direct modem connect.
