As this is going on, Quake Wars appears to be taking on some elements of the Battlefield series by gaining ranks, skills, and specializing over time.

Wow, apparently Jeff Nash didn't start FPS gaming until 2000.

Likewise so is the implicit sexism in using 'ladies' as an insult; if 'we' were a bunch of over-egotistic, testosterone overdosed people needing to prove our manliness to all and sundry, then maybe it'd be offensive, but otherwise it comes across as some sort of projection.

Looking like this probably makes him feel the need to try to exude "manliness" on internet messageboards as much as possible. Lord knows he looks incapable of doing it in person.

Was your local crack dealer doing a three-for-one today? That must be if you think those shots are.....oh wait, I forgot, I'm supposed to be pissed and all that. Fact is, I'm not. And you're ugly

Wow Derek, hit a nerve or something? Did you work on all the textures yourself? Might want to update to using a a functional pixel shader, then maybe this wouldn't look like it is running on DirectX 7.0

Wow those graphics are pretty horrendous. I usually don't complain too much about graphics if the gameplay is good, but those are just kind of painful to look at.

I hope you put more time into designing the game mechanics and streamlining the UI than you did with the visuals.

I am not migrating to Vista period. When I started work at my company it was completely NT/2000/VMS for everything. I worked to move all of the servers to Redhat other than the two domain controllers.

Now my fellow staffers and I have created a migration plan to finally move the workstations to Linux also, and ditch M$ all together.

The licensing fees involved with deploying Vista in a company with right at 150 employees just isn't worth the cost.

I didn't know that and I take my kudos back. For Shame relic, for SHAME!

How is that shameful? Should they just give all of the options to those who didn't buy the original game and WA expansion pack? What about the people that did shell out the money for the originals, should they just screw them over by giving away everything that they had previously charged for, for free?

I loved both and I am happy to support relic with my dollar because I think they are an excellent company who continually come out with top notch games.

I think you need to learn the meaning of the word "fundamentally".

BF2 and ET:QW are both team based FPS, control point objective based on large scale maps, with infantry and both air as well as land vehicles. These are the fundamentals.

Changing a couple RULES, because that is all you are refering to with the permanent cap points, doesn't make ET:QW and BF2 "very different games".

While everyone is getting all horny over ET:QW, I have yet to see a Doom 3 engine title play well enough in Multiplayer. I'll wait and see, and for the most part could care less about ET:QW or BF2142.

Apparently you need to look up the definition of "context". When taking talking about gameplay QW and the BFXX are very different. QW's gameplay is based on completing a series of objectives which bestow permanent control of an area and bring in additional benefits such as new vehicles and deployables, while the BF series is based on capturing and holding a series of flags for longer than your opponent. In QW these aren't just permanent cap points that you can go and stand around for 'xx' seconds to capture for your team.

Fundamentally they are completely different in terms of gameplay. Just because they are both team-based FPSs doesn't mean that they have the same features with the same style of gameplay.

I agree Grudge, but at the same time ET:QW is being compaired directly to BF2 by the id and splash damage teams. Check out the Quakecon video of the 2 guys demo'ing the map.

My complaint with this is it seems that one team is always on the short end of the stick. I have played a bit of ET:RTCW, but in the end it's just not something I really enjoy in a BF2 type game. And after being part of a 64 map that had 2 clans doing a skrimmage match, it was really awesome to see the coordination for each side., unforently you rarely see that sorta teamwork on public servers.

And also I know these are just games, but at the same time, if the enemy gets their command center to a certain area and set up, why does it become invincible to damage?

I'm not saying do the flag capturing bit, but give the other team the ability to say blow up the command center then have to repush to get it back in place. That way there are objectives, but giving the tug of war affect.

Actually the command center does not become invincible, because that is where the Field Ops calls down the Hammer Missle from. It can be damaged and will need to be repaired. On that map in particular because of the spawn areas the Strogg have a pretty good chance of keeping the command center in jeopardy once it is setup.

As far as Pub-playing goes I think QW's ogjective gameplay has an edge over the BF series because of the fact that the battle is concentrated around an objective and not spread out over 5-6 flags so even the more noobish players will at least be running in the direction of the action (hopefully).

I'm really hesitant about ET:QW. One of the things I do like about BF series is the capture and hold type gameplay. Where as in ET:QW once you capture a point you can only go forward. In the videos shown from the one map, why shouldn't the strogg be able to push the humans all the way back to their starting base?
I think it's a major part of combat that not only should you capture flags/points/areas but also have to protect them as well. Otherwise you get the kamikazi types that say 'well screw it if I die cause in 2 more second I'll get this spawn point and then I can respawn here and kill the guy who killed me' where as in BF series, you need to capture the point and deal with any baddies around cause if ya don't then all your time spent on capture the point/flag/whatever is wasted.

The BF series and ET series are two fundamentally different forms of gameplay. BF takes a spreadout approach to warfare by having capture points where the combatants have to choose where to focus their efforts in order to obtain maximum effect. The ET series is objective gameplay that attempts to force focus on a heated battle line at the objective(s).

These two gaming modes couldn't be any more different fundamentally because of this. The reason that in ET:QW that you can't push an opposing team back to their starting location is because ET:QW has introduced the concept of winnable territory into the game. Each map has multiple territories with varrying objectives. If the team completes its objective in that territory they gain the spawn rights for that territory and the benefits that go along with it, i.e. additional vehicle and deployable types. Vice versa as the opposing team is pushed backwards to being forced to spawn at the other section of their territory they gain additional resources to combat this new assault.

Bottom line, these are very different games that just happen to be in the same team-based FPS genre, their gameplay styles will not appeal to everyone while one may have better physics or bullistics than the other, trying to compare their gameplay styles is more a matter of preference than anything else.

That being said, I hate playin camp the flag, I haven't bought a BF game since 1942 and I am holdint out for ET:QW. I love objective gameplay.

LMAO! Yeah, and when one team caps a point, it forces the opposing side to sit and watch a fullscreen ad for the cappers' products.

Dude STFU, you are going to give them ideas! Remember EA knows no bounds when it comes to milking more money out of a product.

I haven't bought an EA game since Road Rash for Sega Genesis, and I am sure as hell not about to start with crap like this being put into games.

My money goes will be going to ET:QW.

Wonder what the gameplay is like...

The graphics kind of remind me of the first Delta Force game, but with slightly better textures.

The rather quick impression that we got from playing Battlefield 2142 is that it's a whole lot like Battlefield 2, only with futuristic weapons and vehicles.

but it took us no time getting used to the vehicles we tried as they mimic the classic Battlefield vehicles in basically all but look.

So, they actually did just reskin BF2 and are releasing it as a new game? I wonder if they actually worked out the myriad of destabilizing bugs with this mod?

Yeah, you said it. I still regularly play Half-Life: Natural Selection. It's high time a good online shooter came out.

Fear not, Quake Wars cometh...The latest preview written by a Wolf:ET player who got to playtest the current build says:

"That fact is, quite simply, that you've been here before.
It's been lost in the amazing visuals, the filthy gut-sucking tactics of the Strogg, the cavalcade of beautifully chunky vehicles and the advent of the much-fabled megatexture - but the clue is in the name: Enemy Territory. The game feels just like Wolfenstein:
Enemy Territory - a stronger more solid variant on it, perhaps - but the vibe's still there. If you try really hard, you can still just about smell the Nazis."


Blues has the full review linked on the main page but here's the link too...

"I think the Titan game mode is unique from the point that, one, it's the first new Battlefield game mode.

Yes, we are all staggered by the fact that BF2142 is the first game in the series that you have ever so slightly deviated from capture the flag.

And I would say that most of the game modes coming out, really, obviously, are taking from playing other games and learning from other game modes. And you take pieces from each and every one.

Translation: People are getting tired of standing next to flags will they go up and down, so we thought we would rip off the ideas fleshed out in Tribes, Unreal, Enemy Territory ect.. to try and milk the playerbase a little longer with this "new" game mode.

I think coming out with a brand new game mode that has never been seen in any game like it before, is very hard, and I don't think that that would necessarily be good for a good game mode.

WTF?! Innovation is bad, and it is better to just stick with the same old game modes that have been in the previous three titles, or rip off the ideas from other games instead of coming up with something new?

I think That last statement may have summed up everything that is wrong with the BF series and EA/Dice.

Not that you'd know, since all you know of UC is that is developed by a guy a lot of losers on the Internet don't like.

I actually tried out UC back in its' time. It really was one of the worst games that I had ever played. In fact I don't think I have played a game since with as clunky of an interface as UC.
