I already destroy people with the shotguns.. (started really using those about 2 weeks ago).. ever since that change.. my K/D has gone from just over 1.. to something like 3 to 1.. it's ridiculous.

Now they're going to make my pump action shottys even better? HAHA okay!

I was #1 in DMR's for a while after launch there.. (at least.. int eh #1 scoring group).. I might have to go back to those again.

I just watched the Wildstar customization video.. and I dont know what it is about that game, but it has my full attention. It just looks like it's done right.. and the customization video had me very interested in what I could do with all that.. and i NEVER care about customization at all in my games.

Every WS vid I see, and tidbit I read about that game, makes ESO look terrible in comparison

I actually almost feel bad for the ESO guys.. as if they were fighting a losing battle from the word "go"

News Comments > February is Battlefield 4 Player Appreciation Month

I wish we could get another AAA title like how Wolf:ET was with campaign unlocks.. and a series of maps.. and then a reset after the campaign ended.
That way.. we could go back to having servers that players own, modding, community made maps.. and less overheard where the devs put so much garbage into a game.. that it ruins the game (levelution comes to mind.. i hate it).

Is there a new AAA title coming out anytime soon? And no.. i dont mean 6v6 Titanfall either.. that game has me all sorts of nervous

god damn.. i'd love a new UT right now..or a future'ish Enemy Territory (done right.. not like QW)..

I like to consider myself a gamer.. but I absolutely missed the Wii U launch, and up until recently, I thought it was an add-on for the Wii.

I am on many gaming sites weekly, work with a gamer, talk games and play games all the time.. and I didnt even know WTF a Wii U was. Their marketing team really screwed that up.

News Comments > Titanfall Alpha Invites Going Out
19. Re: Titanfall Alpha Invites Going Out Jan 16, 2014, 23:08 ColoradoHoudini
 
I've always wondered if game devs (not the main guys either).. come into places like here, or shack.. or other reputable gaming sites and see the remarks we make about a game and think to themselves "See...I told the bosses the customers wouldn't like it, but nobody listened to me" .. and then they feel better about themselves.

Or they Look at our comments and think "man, we should address some things" ..

I just overall if the dev-types see our posts and cringe.. knowing they are probably going to hear a lot of bad mouthing about their title.

lastly-- Remember that former dev who badmouthed SWTOR for all the things it sucked at? Turns out he was so right about that game being shitty.. he must sit there with such a smug look on his face.. with a thousand "I told you so" moments.

What a boring game with ZERO end game content but jumping puzzles and shitty lame dungeons. No thanks

Normally I would disagree, shake my head.. mutter "troll" under my breath and move on without posting..but.. you're right.

when I hit 80, I had the best gear in the game within 15 minutes (save for the orange weapon.. but i believe those stats were negligible). Then When I had the best gear I thought "where the hell do I even go to use it.. there's no content left?"

Then I left the game.. I came back 6+ months later, and STILL had the best gear in the game.. or damn near it. There were no new challenges, new content to beat.. but instead, silly puzzles, fashion show clothing, and people sitting in LA saying "I'm bored".

If GW2 had an end game, or bigger content.. good lord that game would be amazing. Then again, it would probably also need a real trinity set.. and yes, I realize that the game isn't about anything I posted..but because of that, I think that's why all the people I knew that played it, left and never returned. Even people that didnt raid/do end game content had no reason to go off and farm, find new recipes, craft cool stuff.. because nobody needed it/wanted it.

How are the numbers these days for GW2?

Can someone tell me if this game is worth getting?

I am currently playing BF4.. and really.. I dislike the bugs/randomness/glitches/odd deaths.. etc..
Not to mention how many freaking vehicles the game has all the damn time. I have to run around as an engineer in order to have a fighting chance at survival!


on the PC, of course.

edit- never mind.. according to reddit and other opinions.. the PC version of this is garbage.

A lot of us here are old school PC FPS gamers..and do you guys remember how those public servers went when a handful of clanned players jumped in on the same team? It was usually lopsided in their favor.

Now imagine you're playing by your lonesome, jump on a server, and the other team is full of 6 clanned guys, heck, even 4.. with Vent/TS and it's you and 5 random dudes. I see some lopsided public games here.. I see a lot of clanned people playing together and ruining public server fun.

that was the first thought that came to mind.. the second thought was "I dont care if they say the game is balanced/built for 6v6.. I am blaming the 360 for such low player count."

I was fully ready to read a lot of comments here saying "it's terrible".. because that's all I keep seeing from people, to include former guildmates from WoW that gave the betas for this game a good playing. I thought I had heard it on good authority that this game was going to crash and burn for a lot of reasons.. but a few of you here seem to like it?

So can you tell me what you like about it? I'm interested in your opinions. Thanks!

I think I might go back and play some more PS2.. considering I am none too pleased with BF4.

Was with AT&T.. and only switched to Verizon because AT&T had no signal for me at work. T Mobile/Sprint are the same way too
If I got a signal at work with T Mobile, I'd switch to them and never look back.

As someone in the Information Security field (Information Assurance, more accurately).. these attacks make people like me slightly more wanted.. which is good for me! ..bad for the data owners/users.

I keep waiting for a new UT.. but without the over the top supervehicles etc.. nonsense.
or a new pure Quake-type game..
or a new SoF (yeah, I said it.. something like BF.. but without all the extra shiny screen shaking over the top nonsense)..
or a new Unreal XMP

I also want community-made maps, mods, etc.. and charge me $60 for the game, I don't care.. but give the game BACK to use gamers. The ones that made you who you are today.. the ones buying games from your studios for ourselves still, and maybe for our kids.

Give the gaming back to us.

I have a PS4.. and before any of you throw rocks at me, I was PC gaming on NetQuake back in 1995'ish.. so back off

I hate the controller and detest the absolutely narrow FOV..55inch tv and it feels like i'm playing Killzone and Ghosts on a 17inch CRT. I am not sure what my FOV is on my PC with BF4 (when it doesnt crash..boo).. but it feels a LOT bigger.

Anyhow, whenever the PS4 gets fulltime kb/mouse support.. great.. I'll buy more FPSs. If the Xbox One fully supports kb/mouse.. I'll switch to that for my console FPS gaming.

Why do I hate consoles or console gamers?
Because long ago, FPS's were slightly smarter, didn't have random shiny explosions or over the top non-suseful special effects to woo the console kid idiot crowd. Those "features" and dumbing down of games bled into the PC world.. sometimes we got horrific ports of mediocre games.
If the console crowd didnt buy everything shiny and line the pockets of shitty devs/shitty games.. I think we'd have a lot less quality control issues now, and better-made FPSs in general.

Played 2 maps..1 conquest, 1 rush.. as soon as I got on Dawnbreaker, 1 minute in, crash with the audio loop.
I can play 3 maps without crashing. I cannot believe this game was released in this state.

Is Ghosts any better? I don't need a game with vehicles in it..

I am one of the unluycky few that keeps getting whatever crash it is that puts me in the audio loop.
I've got it since day 1.. and I still get it.
There are a few maps I can play without crashing.. few gametypes.. but it still happens.

I also think that they are trying to do too much with the game in MP. Too many sounds, realistic (lol) nonsense.. screen shake, bullet sounds, shaky screen.. etc.. it's too much and ruins my experience with the GAME --keyword there. It also seems that on the maps with all these wild extra terrain/sound effects, is where I crash the most. I wish they'd dial back the "realism" approach.

All this does is remind me to ask- when is the next Unreal'ish game coming out? Something future-based, a good shooter.. not too over the top with extra features.. etc..

Looks kinda fun.. I hope that the Titans aren't too quick though.. there was a moment in there with the Strider where it looked like an old mech game where the mechs moved entirely too fast.. made me cringe a bit.

Either way, I'm just glad this will be on the PC too.. stupid freaking PS4 and Killzone/Ghosts just collecting dust in my house because of the godawful gamepad controls.. hurry up and release a kb/mouse for the PS4!

...or if the xBox one gets kb/mouse support.. I'll buy one of those. I just set up my buddies kids Xbox one (patching/game installs for xmas).. and that interface is way slick. So i could be coerced into an xbox one as well..(not sure who I am talking to at this point)
