1. Well ahh... Jul 8, 2008, 21:56 ColoradoHoudini
Really? I don't remember much about this game except that it was fun for about 10 minutes and then it was the old "been there, done that" feeling. Nothing great.

i mean this in the nicest possible way-
do the devs still have a fanbase for this game, or did they ever? what was the motivation for redoing this game?

"Porn appears on rugby programme."

Would you be more surprised if porn shown while watching rugby on tv, or rugby was spliced into porn? I'm saying the latter.
Also, as someone who has played rugby and been around ruggers, i can tell you that not one of them would mind porn showing up unexpectedly.

1. Huh? Jul 8, 2008, 09:59 ColoradoHoudini
I swear to god that I thought this game already came out, was panned and forgotten about.
Well, i guess it's good to see that my thoughts were wrong.

What ever happened to Garage Games and some FPS game they were working on back years ago? I don't remember much of the demo save for something about one of the weapons was a crossbow..and i dont think the characters were human.. i want to say i was something like a Tauren (WoW example)..
Maybe that second part is wrong, so dont hang on that bit..
but they made an FPS demo.. but i dont think anything came of it.. did it?

anyone else remember the FPS game called Devastation?
It was billed as the HL killer.. the next big thing.
The game tanked in every way way imaginable.

Don't know why that game just came to mind.

What game was I thinking about where it was squad-based RTS'ish..where you had to sneak your guys into a bad guys base and kill people without becoming noticed? I thought it was this game?

Anyhow.. this game looks cool.

I have a pretty broad social circle of friends that spans multiple states.. and the majority of these people are not hardcore gamers on any platform. However, they all seem to own a Wii.
they love it for themselves, their friends for parties, their kids love it.. dunno man, if it's a gimmick on any level, it's working like a charm.
Hell, the Wii has my friends parents (50+ years old) playing and buying video games. That's impressive.

Not only do they play it, but they play it often.

/I don't own any console.

23. Re: No subject Jul 2, 2008, 18:05 ColoradoHoudini
I have two gripes about the game

1. I don't like the unlock scheme
2. Releasing one upgraded character per release makes servers shitty as hell while everyone runs around as that character.

Every damn server i go on is overrun with lamers playing pyro.
We're on offense.. and there's a good bit of distance between us and the defense.. and we have 5 pyros... ugh.

Every server is alwys overrun for a long while, with the most recent unlockable character.. it really ruins the game for me.

6. Re: No subject Jun 30, 2008, 15:52 ColoradoHoudini
ET:QW would've had me as a fan if the gameplay would've matched the features. As it stood for me, all the deployables weren't needed to defend or attack and sometimes, not very useful because of the pace of the game.
Items went up, stood out like a sore thumb.. and right back down. It was bunny-hopping, super speed shooting with deployables and vehicles thrown in. Not a true collaboration of all those variables. The speed didn't match up. Lots of people complained about that, and ultimately.. was a huge reason people didn't get involved with that game-or stay involved.

ET was amazing and i put it up there with Q1CTF (3Wave/TWCTF) and Tribes as perfect shooters.

All they need to do is add some sort of depth to the game.. and Champions goes "bub bye"
Make the game more than just about creating a character.

I don't think that devs should be allowed to release info about a game unless it's 3 months from release.

15. Re: hmmm... Jun 23, 2008, 11:44 ColoradoHoudini
why tease about something that every gamer on the planet knows is coming?
Even if it's more details on the WoTLK expansion.. it doesn't warrant (imho) this much teaser attention..
and I'm a huge WoW nerd saying that.

2. Re: upcoming? Jun 23, 2008, 10:46 ColoradoHoudini
I have almost totally forgot about this game. I really wish I knew more about what it had to offer.

the trailer looked neato.. just not sure how they can pull off an MMOFPS these days. As long as it's not capture/lose repeat like Planetside was.
And it needs depth.

and it needs to be NOTHING like Tabula Rasa. nothing.

News Comments > Champions Online Q&As
1. And still.... Jun 19, 2008, 20:51 ColoradoHoudini
Nothing about "depth".
Where the fuck is the depth in this game?
Can I have a profession where perhaps I add something magical to capes that gives players "X more somethings..."

Or maybe if a player wields a sword, i can add something special to it -like enchants.

Maybe I can bless or whatever you want to call it.. a hero and give his super jump a longer duration or some magical defensive ability.

Maybe i can kill certain mobs and steal their powers for a short time..and those powers really help beat some new boss..

maybe i can align myself with a certain gang of baddies through long quest lines and eventually summon one of them during a battle.. or they give me some special stuff..

All i am reading about Champions points directly to being as shallow as CoH/CoV.

" So the Pyro has Force Push now? Awesome."

No.. he has the airhammer/first from Quake 1 Thunderwalker CTF !!!
Not sure which other mods had that weapon too.. but it made running with the flag a god damn art form.
