I thought the PDA itself was hilarious. This is the far future, and the PDA has grown to the size of your forearm!

Funny, opinions like yours seems to be an extreme minority when talking about the Half-Life series. Yet now they seem to be overall what people want?

I don't know, I have trouble getting on-board with a story when I'm supposed to be the main character, yet I say nothing the entire time. If these games want to be movies so bad, why don't they present themselves like movies? Hell, I'm more invested in Marcus Fenix as a character than I am Gordon Freeman; at least I can see what Marcus is doing, saying, and thinking. Gordon is a spectator holding a gun.

I simply do not care about a story in an action game. I don't need to know why I'm blowing something up or wiping out an alien race. Give me guns, things that die, things that catch fire. The end.

Doom 4's formula should be: Crysis graphics + Serious Sam gameplay = SUCCESS

Can someone objectively tell me how many of the 5 x-com games are actually worth playing? Obviously the first game is a gem, but it's not much of a combo pack if it's one good game and 4 you will never touch.

The metacritic score is non-existent for all of them for some reason.

News Comments > New Ghost Recon & Rainbow Six This Year?
17. Re: New Ghost Recon & Rainbow Six This Year? Jan 7, 2009, 16:10 Veinman
 
Vegas 2 got a "High Stakes" mode patched in that restored a lot of the old style. You could no longer see around corners when in cover and your health did not regenerate. I don't remember what else it changed. Sadly they didn't enable it for Terrorist Hunt.

But the fact that they did that can only be seen as promising, since they'd surely keep that ability in a new game. Hopefully?

They had said that Rainbow would be re-tooled, so I wasn't expecting one this year. But I'm definitely interested.

I played the 360 version at PAX. It was by far the least fun game I checked out. I'm surprised that there even is a pc version, unless they are just spraying wide in hopes of making their money back.

I much prefer Battlefield 1942 over Tribes, any day. I felt it brought a lot more to the table, and was simply more fun.

What makes it so great far as MP goes, compared to say UT, Q1?

It's nothing like those. Think more of a precursor to the Battlefield series. You run around large landscapes, grabbing flags, killing people, etc. You can ski down hills, jetpack, drive vehicles (that control like shit, imo). It can be a lot of fun, but is about as noob-friendly as Counter-Strike.

One thing I left out... you could actually set up defenses in your base. I always found that to be fun.

If they had more power, they'd just fill that up too and still chug. It would just be more awesome chugging.

With an ATi card being optional... I'm guessing the default is onboard video. Yuck.

I find it good background music when I don't want to really pay attention to what I'm listening to. It's pretty much the same with any songs with no lyrics for me.

This is my second-favorite RPG, after Fallout 2. I regularly listen to the soundtrack (you can download it off Sierra's website, at least you used to be able to). It's just great.

Saints Row 2 is a fantastic game and I really hope the PC version does well. It's much more fun than GTA IV.

I would hate to work for them. They send a clear message to their employees- Bust your ass for us, and if you give us a flop, you are out the door.

Fuck that.

Just created my account and grabbed them. I never finished Steel Sky before, and have never played Temptress.
