News Comments > Tabula Rasa's Swan Song
2. Re: Tabula Rasa's Swan Song Feb 27, 2009, 21:44 ColoradoHoudini
Did the game ever implement a good hit scan, air and ground vehicles, decent crafting, and get rid of that cheap MMO look that CoH/CoV/and Auto Assault were all plagued with?

On paper it sounded good.. in execution it was terribly bland and unpolished.

heres to hoping that Blizzard's next MMO is an FPS.

I had no idea this game was in any sort of playable state at all..
weird, i had heard hype about it long ago, you'd think there'd be a bit of buzz on the net -shrug- .. maybe i'm just not looking in the right places?

PvP only? If that's true.. no thanks. I have FPS's for that.

I would probably still be playing this game if it didnt take a much stronger PC than i currently have in order to enjoy RvR combat without ridiculous amounts of lag.

I came into TR during beta and did so with nothing but excitement. A future'ish MMO with something resembling more coordinated combat.
Then within 2 weeks I was like "you have to be kidding me, this game feels juvenile at best, and is missing so many elements that you'd think it'd automatically have".

The game failed on so many fronts for me, and I really, really wanted it to succeed. It felt like every other NC Soft/Net Devil/whomever was responsible for CoH/Auto Assault and it just felt cheesy.

I really hope someone comes out with a good future'ish FPS MMO in the near future. Blizzard and your unannounced MMO title.. i'm looking at you.

I've been hardcore PC gaming since 1994.. and if you would've asked me "with what you know about Starcraft 2.. when do you think it will come out".
I would've said - August or so.

I had no idea they hyped that game the way they did/have and a beta MIGHT make it out before the end of this year?

Hype machine.. ACTIVATE!

It's been a long while since i played DoW 1.. but I think I recall building some little base units in that game. Is there no base building at all in DoW 2?

I suck in MP, so i just play SP and turtle up. If there arent any base buildings to create.. err..

4. Re: Morning Consolidation Feb 13, 2009, 12:06 ColoradoHoudini
I'm a dummy.. which lead me to believe that with Blu Ray winning the war, the PS3 would've taken control by a good margin.

Serious question:
why does the 360 outsell the PS3? titles? better online component?
I don't own a console, but I've been thinking of picking up a new 1080p tv and a console for a while now.. i could've sworn the PS3 would've been the console to get.

Also, why is it so damn expensive still?

If only there were a huge company with near limitless assets that could make a new cyberpunk/future punk MMO.. like say.. if their lead dev left the game.. to work on an unannounced mmo title within the same company..

blizzard? oh hello there.. tell me you're looking at AO and saying "this genre needs a real mmo"

Someone save this post..

future punk/ cyber punk type.

failing that, a game like Planetside, but actually an MMO and not a large FPS.

I just one god damn interview where someone say "outside of the customizable powers where you change colors etc.. and the endless customization of the character.. what should i be looking to be excited about in this title"

I'll either get a good response and be excited..
or dead air and i'll laugh my ass off..

I'd prefer the first, honestly. But i have a feeling i'd get the second.

He did mention crafting though.. so that's a good thing.

This is as good of a place as any to ask..

Is there any good larger-scale (32 players +) FPS on the radar?
I'm looking for something upcoming to be excited about..

PC of course.

ahah what? i could've sworn this game died less than 6 months after release?
In fact, a guildie friend of mine (WoW.. shuddap) and I were just talking about horrible MMO's and he said he played this one and it was godawful.. and we laughed about how quickly it closed down.

it's still open? amazing

5. Re: TR Gets Mechs Feb 11, 2009, 19:53 ColoradoHoudini
I couldn't for the life of me figure out why i was playing a space-aged MMO.. yet i walked all over the place.
The aliens beamed down from ships (i think).. but i walked most of the time.
They had warp gate thingies, but not vehicles, no ships i could pilot.. nothing.
Of course, this was in beta. Nothing about the game drew me in to ever check to see if they put in any features i found worthwhile.

12. Re: Champions Online Movie Feb 9, 2009, 23:37 ColoradoHoudini
I played the pen and paper Champions game.. somewhere in my house I might have the hardcover book (some sort of general guide.. huge book).

While I could see a ton of content ideas in a super hero MMO, I don't see jack all in CoH/CoV. It's as if the devs for those two games and upcoming C.O don't even think to add content in the game. Why aren't they looking at WoW/Warhammer and saying .. "let's do what they do".

If they want me to be interested in C.O, they need to come out with some press releases and media detailing all their cool content.

making a character, giving him powers will only go so far once i'm 2 weeks into the game and have seen the same stuff over and over.

Oh boy, a mob boss that hits 2x as hard as a regular mob.. whoop.
Also, to the people up top that said they since implemented the changes i suggested.. that was err.. in 2008? The game came out in 2004 I believe. 4 years to put in something as simple as cosmetically upgrading my gun? sigh.

Who was responsible for Auto Assault? that was a pile as well.. I keep thinking Cryptic has something to do with it all.

I cant place my finger.. but for some reason, the following MMO's all remind me of each other. Maybe it's the art style, or overly simplistic UI/gameplay..

(what i've seen of C.O)
Auto Assault
Tabula Rasa
