the last MoH felt terrible compared to the MW/BF series we all had options for. The game was too twitchy/fast for a shooter like it was/features it had.

Where's another BF 2142 or something along those lines? Someone start copying that timeline for FPS's. That's something slightly refreshing at least

I'd just like it if the nex gen of console games all have native kb/mouse controls and have those components available from day one. Keep resolutions high, allow me to adjust the FOV on my PC.. and make console games (let's be honest, FPS's) identical on both platforms because the gaming experience/mechanics/hardware is all equivalent.

No more oversized and stupid UI' more mapping problems...and let the only difference be that the top end PC's (at the time the nex consoles release) can just play the games in a slightly better graphics mode. If devs are working from near-identical hardware then it should be easy, right? Hell, make the 720 run Windows 8/9 (small adjustment for the console DVD's) that the developing platform is identical. Boom.. just punched Sony in the mouth!

Can one of you smart guys tell me if it's this game i'm thinking of where it was mostly squad based, continual movement -capture, progress- game..or were there bases?

I suck at RTS's.. flat out suck.. so I like to turtle up and take my time..which DoW game is right for me?

totally unrelated- is there ever going to be another Earth 2160 game? that game was money!

The truth accidentally leaked out, and now they have to do damage control or never get another EA game, to review again.

Unfortunately, that's my initial gut reaction. Not that I matter, and not that it really matters to me because I don't pay attention to review sites anyhow, i pay attention to what you guys say when it comes to reviews.

News Comments > BF3 Norwegian Review Shenanigans Allegations Follow-up
9. Re: BF3 Norwegian Review Shenanigans Allegations Follow-up Oct 19, 2011, 21:05 ColoradoHoudini
This is a good a place to ask as

Does anyone have a list or a link to a side by side comparison on what BF3 and MF3 bring to the table? I mean in terms of stuff like, total players, private servers, # of maps, private servers or not, etc..

With all the hype in the last few months I got a bit overwhelmed and can't recall it all. I remember starting out all "yay BF3!" then the excitement broke away little by little and MF3 was like "now we have X feature you really want!"

Any help appreciated!

Anyone else read someones overly positive post, not recognize their name and then see that they have less than 20 posts and immediately discredit them?
I see about 5 in this thread.. and I can't help but believe they are plants.

Any smart FPS veteran (such as you'll find here) will tell you that we've all been burned more than once after buying a game on release day and finding the same bugs that existed in beta that we were promised were fixed before the game went gold.

So having reservations about the launch product is not without merit.

"And thanks again for playing and helping make Battlefield 3 a better game at launch!"

I read that and all I can think of is that from the beta to the release product, nothing suggested or identified in the beta will be addressed in the gold copy.. but will come in a patch some time after launch.

I have almost zero faith in devs when I see a beta with so many bugs and then hear them say they'll fix em before launch.

"World of Warcraft Server-Blade Auction to Benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital."

Seems like a very useless and pointless item to own. Even when I was a hardcore WoW raider, I'd have no desire to own an empty, old server blade.

I am still waiting for AMD to come out and say "haha, fooled you, our new chips are actually faster and cost less than Intel's"

I mean, really.. you came to the game about a year late, with less performance and more cost.. that was your brilliant scheme?

I hope the folks over at Intel had a pizza and beer day to celebrate just how awful their competition is. I was waiting to build a new rig, hoping that this bulldozer would be better than the 2600k by a fair bit, and cheaper to boot.. because, i thought it should be..coming out this long after the 2500/2600's.. boy did i mislead myself.

Well, new rig is gonna be a 2500k for sure now.

AMD seems like they'll be 1.5 cycles behind Intel as soon as Ivy hits.

I was a hardcore WoW raider (from Molten Core til we killed the LK in 25 hard mode).. I was hard farking core for WoW. I went over to Rift and absolutely loved it from the get go. The classes are much better, as much or more to do than WoW, finely tuned.. just damn good fun.
The only reason I stopped playing was because the guild I ran with got overthrown during a guild merger and that left a bad taste in my mouth.

i suppose I could go back, transfer servers and play again.. the game is damn fun and well done

News Comments > Tribes Ascend Beta Next Month
10. Re: RE: Follow up Oct 9, 2011, 01:52 ColoradoHoudini
Well, I am interested in this game, and not in any way interested in any of the console'ish/dumbing down that the game has undertaken.
Having said that, the devs are at least listening. We mentioned how Tribes shouldn't have regenning health (this is a fucking nitwit console game for that idiot crowd).. and non-regenning base health (gens/turrets/stations) so the devs said they'd likely put in a server side switch so you could play on a more accurate/skilled server where they don't do nearly as much hand-holding.

the whole unlock bullshit.. well, we shall see. I don't mind spending 40 bucks in unlocks off the bat for a game that i feel is good. So I'll give it a good free try, and if it looks promising, then I'll throw a couple bucks at it for stuff I think I want/need.

Cryptic = garbage.. or whatever is worse than garbage. Maybe the run off juice that falls from the back of a garbage truck.. that's my impression of that shallow game factory they call Cryptic.

News Comments > PlanetSide 2 Beta "Still a Ways Off"
4. Re: PlanetSide 2 Beta Sep 20, 2011, 01:02 ColoradoHoudini
I've been following Firefall and I am now in the beta (starts tomorrow FYI) and the one HUGE GLARINGLY TERRIBLE move Red 5 did was make the game expansive and highly-populated, and then say "yeah, but the PvP is instanced team vs team nonsense..perhaps max at 12 vs 12 or similar" --as far as we know now.. if my number is off, it isn't by a whole size withstanding.

So here you have a big world to play in.. an NPC force.. a scarce material people need, and some PvP in a cage. Umm, way to take out the immersion in a game. We aren't fighting for the resource, we're fighting for individual rewards.. against each other.. but then against the NPC's too?

Hopefully they open the game up to larger-scale battles and move away from this crybaby PvE nonsense and the godawful moronic asshole console fucktards the forums are attracting.
"we should have a bunch of melee moves!!"
in an FPS? you idiot, I hope you get kneecap cancer for xmas.

"we shouldn't have to play against people in an MP FPS"
Umm, go screw your horse, it's a MP FPS, it's PvP first and foremost.. hell, I feel silly just saying PvP in an FPS game, it's assumed because that's the proven working model for at least 15 years!

PvE in a larger scaled MP FPS seems like a terrible idea for longevity. There's only so much you can do as far as challenges in FPS's vs NPC's anyhow.

So in closing.. PS2 will cater to a different demographic.. a more hardcore, a more true FPS player. FF will keep a small share.. but it won't come close to cutting into PS2's numbers.
