News Comments > RIFT Add-on Launches, Free Weekend Begins Tomorrow
13. Re: RIFT Add-on Launches, Free Weekend Begins Tomorrow Oct 12, 2011, 21:29 ColoradoHoudini
 
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 lot..game 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.


oops---
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.

hip hip hooray!

Really looking forward to this. Hundreds, if not thousands of players fighting it out over territories in giant PvP battles.. gonna be awesome.
Never in any other MMO that I've played (from any genre) have I ever experienced the "wow.. this is truly an epic moment" like I did in PS1.

A cyberpunk MMO from the company that has more money than it knows what to do with.

No Cyberpunk game out there in the MMO world..
failing that, a huge MMOFPS

I am totally torn here..
On one hand BF3 seems to be everything they can to make me not buy it..while the franchise and CEO we love to hate is trying to get back into our good graces.

Maybe ignore both, go for Tribes/Firefall/whatever else?

I couldn't get beyond the controls for the longest time, then when I finally managed to put up with them, I was mad with the inventory system.
IIRC- I could pick up an item and never know if it was useful for the guy I wanted to have use it. I personally needed (I'm a dummy, I admit) some sort of indicator as to which character can use which type of item.. something I never saw in that game.

"So when Perfect World acquired Cryptic, one of the contribution from Perfect World to Cryptic is we can share our free-to-play experience with Cryptic. So I want to emphasize is that never we’ve done a free-to-play model game"

Was that translated twice over?
did they just say that they can contribute their expertise in F2P games, but they've never done a F2P game?

did i read that right?

I too will be buying.
Had a lot of good fun with the first one, lots of hours of enjoyment there.
I never did mess with the mods, I hope there will be good support for mods in #2.

Sums it up quite nicely.
HAHA awesome!
-------------------------

Also, a $2800.00 laptop doesn't help anything in the PC world. It just gives the console crowd a chance to say "see, look at how expensive PC gaming is"..fence sitters get to see a ridiculously high cost as well, maybe turning them off to PC gaming.

How much did Razer already say previously about their new BF3 product line? Ya think this announcement ties into that in any way?

I rather enjoy my Razer mouse .. stop badmouthing it!
When I was playing Rift hardcore, my Mage had 9 side buttons mapped that I used often.. that was worth it to me.

I wonder what this announcement will be.. hmm.

Watch, they got into building their own gaming rigs...and like everyone else that builds gaming rigs, they will be overpriced

If us smarter PC people could just influence/correct/educate the console kids and their parents about gaming.. we'd be better off. no more insta-buying every new shiny box just because it's on the shelf..and thus inflating sales numbers.
If the console world knew what they were missing and what they should expect from a title.. a boy can dream

News Comments > Section 8: Prejudice Double XP Weekend
3. Re: Section 8: Prejudice Double XP Weekend Aug 14, 2011, 12:44 ColoradoHoudini
 
I said in the beta for S8.. and the beta for S8P that the game needed a lot of changes if they wanted it to be competitive.
Instead, the devs listened to the same 5 idiots that knew nothing of FPS's and delivered 2 flat out failures on the PC.
They had all the right elements, but failed to put things together correctly.

I told them after the first S8 "did you learn your lesson".. and i was told to shut up and color.
After S8P I said "guess not"

Oh well, that'll teach you to not listen to your smart customers. GFWL.. yes! (sigh).. auto lock on aimbot?? yes please! (sigh)
and then completely turning the game into a console'ish game for ADD kids.. swing and a miss.

S8 is garbage.

I highly doubt anyone is still reading this but just in case.

Quake Wars failed in the eyes of a lot of folks because the games features didn't match the game speed. On one hand they tried to have a slightly tactical/smarter shooter with all the deployables and base defenses.. classes and objectives. What then happened is that the game unleashed full speed quake'ish characters that zipped right past any turret on the screen. Deployables died instantly (and they also stuck out of the map like a sore thumb).. the game really felt like a giant Quake DM game and nothing like the features suggested it might be.
