Well dang, I went to the website looking for screenshots.. and there aren't any.
However, since this game isn't coming out until 2009, I can completely forget about it for the next 6 months.
-shrug-

hype machine, you fail.

59. Wait a second......... Jul 13, 2008, 13:44 ColoradoHoudini
 
Wait.. they really removed the "unsubscribe" button from the game?
Can they do that?
wait.. they really did that?

I can't think of a gaming "fuck you" greater than that in my 15years of PC gaming.

13. Re: so. Jul 12, 2008, 13:19 ColoradoHoudini
 
I'm reading from what is perhaps the best Warhammer forum out there : http://www.warhammeralliance.com/forums/showthread.php?t=43941
and some of the responses are good (in an enlightening sort of way).

Such as:
1. Having no tank for 2 classes ruins single race guilds.
2. Lore-wise, having a certain race spending it's time in another races capital city makes zero sense..and fighting for that city makes zero sense.
3. apparently there was a synergy between two classes where one of the classes fed off the other.. now one of those classes is gone.
4. Role players backstories they have worked months on for classes no longer in the game.
5. fighting over the same 2 cities and their areas could really get tiresome/grueling/laggy

If you're bored or have time.. go take a peek

Holy Shit...
they are cutting the Choppa class? Tons of fanboys have to be crying right now.
From the two 'as official as a fansite gets' forums that i visited over the last year or so.. there were a TON of players that wanted to be a Choppa.
Including creating enormous resource sites covering the Choppa...lots of class talk, people basically bought into being that class.
wow..
some people have got to be pissed.

All these reductions make me leery of the game now.

i guess there's still WoTLK eh?

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.

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.
