News Comments > Hawken Patch & Trailer
4. Re: Hawken Patch & Trailer May 12, 2013, 13:45 4D-Boxing
I've played a dozen games. The game had potential but since it turned out to be an FPS dressed up as a mech game, they should have gone with a conquest game mode a la BF. The DM and team DM didn't do it for me like in Mech Warrior 4. Maps were to small and closed in and the controls did not give the same satisfaction as in Mech. In mech I could use my Mauler in Attrition, take advantage of my armor location and torso twist to spread the enemy damage and have interesting fights against one or many opponents ( I could take out a couple Daishi's with my Mauler no prob just by using the technique described and smart movement). In Hawken, you run into someone and there is very little technique or strategy except sliding and jumping.

Maybe people who invested more time had a diff experience.

PS. There is Siege mode but either it was not available when I tried the game or no one was playing it..and I missed the server browser (supposedly there is one in the game). I had to use the match making which is the worst way to play online IMO.

Bottom line, like all free to play games I've tried up to now , it feels free to play so to speak a la shareware from the old days. I would gladly paid full price in order for them to do proper beta testing and get community feedback etc. Last but not least, the game was initially marketed as a fast paced UT type shooter and its not even close to being that (I would take a UT clone over this).

Not taking sides but I have a feeling Kawlisse knows way more about what went down than he's free to share. The name says a lot!!!

Then again he might just be from the same province and sticking up for a compatriot.

I remember when the results to this contest meant a huge map pack for UT. For once I'm posting without even looking at the actual links and just out of nostalgia for one of the games the game that got me hooked on online FPS.

I wonder how the battery life will be like on that S4. 1080p screen 8 core CPU, wow, do people still use their phones to make calls?

That's all I use my phone for. No net, no texting, just phone calls. Oh well, and it's my mp3 player too, but that's it.

Same here. Anything else such as surfing or gaming is such a huge downgrade for me its beyond annoying. Rather surf on my 30" than a 5" phone. Gaming is not even worth comparing. Only app I use is the one that turns the flash into a bright flashlight, don't need anything else at the moment. Maybe an app for commuting once the office moves.

Start with real dedicated servers including a client we can download that will give UBI 6 months probation. If they keep up the good work, then we'll re evaluate our position and get the international pc gamers board of governors to vote on UBI's reinstatement.

I thought you were complaining that there is way too much negativity on the Blues forums lately.
I see you are helping out by bringing all the positivity.

Yeah, the fact that I have no interest in even trying it for a 'Free Weekend' should say something. Sleeping

The fact that I got this a xmas gift through steam and dont want to touch it says should say something as well! Cant even trade the thing for a 5$ discount towards a real game.

This game is competing with that Colonial Marines fiasco!

The cyber-nannies are the ones that really scared me. Something about the sound and how they managed to sneak up on me was just leathal.

Amazing how to this day, I run into others that say this is their fav game ever. Even people that were not born when i started gaming on the vic 20.

D@amn... cant believe i missed this party!

You can be my bro Quinn. We just took one step for mankind together.
The family stuff you see is an illusion, its like if you where to go to lets say Russia walk into a bar... you would end up with the goup of people from the US or Canada etc.. People gravitate to each other because they dont feel like they fit in even if they try and assume that many around them think of them in term of negative stereo types. So both sides because of misconceptions and assumptions get into an "US" vs "THEM" mode to cope with the situation.

About the game, yes that part though short did leave a bit of a bad taste but sadly its common for me to hear people at work go into that "ghetto mode" when they talk to me. Some because they are uncomfortable..try to be funny and fail and others have less pleasant reasons for acting like that.

Maybe it does not hit as hard because its a common theme for bad jokes at work (before that school) or because of my lineage directly from the old continent and not slavery plus being the first born here. Anyways all this to say, people need to breath. People often see this as black and white but today there are other ethnic groups/races that treat me worst than some prejudice white people have.

Small groups always manage to make lots of noise and hijack and manipulate the issue which results in backward steps. Kids have surprised me, I see things today that I would not have seen when I graduated high school in 1991. Despite the drama etc... people educate themselves, info is more accessible than ever and society evolves. Not as fast as it should or could but it is evolving.

someone told me this was the closest thing to SS2 atmosphere wise so i was going to pre-order and buy 1 & 2.

Correct me if i'm wrong,but didn't the devs or publisher have some fancy announcement just to say the PC version would be a bad port?

If so i'll save 1 & 2 for the summer gaming drought.

I'm kind of surprised the match-3 games this guy made were able to generate that much revenue, honestly. $53K over about 6 yrs, granted, but still.

I know this board is all rah-rah PC, but do people really care about these games or what their developers have to say? This is sub-Angry Birds material, on par with hidden object games.

Well people care enough to read the comments sections and sometimes post comments. Sometimes without reading the associated article! Why would they not care about this article?!

News Comments > NVIDIA's Cloud Gaming
29. Re: NVIDIA's Cloud Gaming Jan 7, 2013, 17:26 4D-Boxing
Anyone else notice that Nvidia is setting itself up to be in a prime spot in the cellphone/tablet/portable gaming market pretty rapidly?

Maybe not those market but yes they seem to be getting ready for a major move. Based on the achitecture of their next GPUs, Nvidia may try to release its own gaming system. Their GPUs will now be able to run an OS due to the new architecture, i can see them having a small box with a SSD small PSU and a dual GPU similar to a 590 or 690 but no blue ray player.

Cloud processing would compliment their hardware. Latency issues make cloud gaming a poor alternative to what is out there now so this approach makes more sense to me. (Yes tech exists to eliminate latency and improve performance by 10 folds just using math...and other tech but we've been hearing it for years and nothing even though some improvements do not require changing the infrastucture)

I was one of the first to say this would fail but after seeing Nvidia's road map.... They could easily succeed.

Upcoming gpus will be able to boot/run the os. All the costs associated to this endeavor went down 30% imho

theyarecomingforyou I cant contest your claims since I do not have Far Cry 3.

I wonder if its a case of everything looks better up close meaning that the draw distance is heavily reduced? Not that they used a console FOV but a similar impact visually? The Closest thing up to now was BF3 that being said, Metro looks better in some aspects but everything seemed to be up close no large vistas (at least from the benchmarks and the first little part of the game when you head into that refuge) . That's the type of scenario I'm referring to.

To be 100% honest your screen shots do not convince me either. Could just be the resolution since I run 2560x1600 or just the pic format.
The way technology evolves, its very possible that what you say is true.

Rant: I want a game that has Deathmatch...old school free for all. I cant believe I have to play COD4 Broadcast map to get a real DM game ( the map that the last 2 good servers I frequent runs). Oh and one has turbo mode that increases the speed and that's just bliss, no one spawning and laying down lol just pure carnage and one man army skills. yes I'm old but my twitch skills are still better than teenagers 25 years younger than me. If Chris Roberts can stir up interest in space sims, why cant someone do the same with old school DM?!?!

LOL people can tell themselves that if it makes them feel better. People hate the guy because he said a lot of BS. The guy just had to think before opening his mouth.

Its not hard to look up the comments, Google is your friend..
From there you'll be able see who made this personal.

Good for Epic but bad for the Thailand's ladyboys..

I have to agree with Jerykk's comments. That being said, I don't get the comments about the controls. I may be old but we used to buy joysticks for flight/space sims. Racing games were either played with a joystick, wheel or later gamepads. Then people started complaining if a space sims did not having mouse support.

Now i'm even worried about all those new mech games. I did play parts of wing wing commander 2 with a mouse and keyboard but that was our first 386pc (first year of university) and my brother and I had to save up for a joystick. Today you can buy a cheap joystick or gamepad for less than most spend on pizza. On top of that they are not hard to open up and fix especially with the info we have online. If my brother and I opened up a vic 20 and repaired it and we weren't even in high school surly kids that can root cell phones can fix a cheap peripheral.

Anyways all this to say not a good port though the mouse performance is understandable (and this is coming from someone who cant stand gamepads). Looks at GoW pc that game had mouse support but it made the game so easy that solitaire looked like a tough game.

I think I've hit my quota for pointless rants for this year but I just had to say something.

News Comments > Battlefield 3 Double XP Weekend
19. Re: Battlefield 3 Double XP Weekend Jun 13, 2012, 18:28 4D-Boxing
The Windforce line of video cards is can be good but you need a case with very good air flow. The way the cooler is designed in a way that makes the heat flow into the case instead of out the back of your case.

If you go for SLI, you must make sure you have plenty of room between the cards the cards will overheat in no time. Trust me, I made that mistake with a pair of 580 (3GB) Windforce and had to change motherboards to get enough room between the cards.

Despite that and a modified Cosmos S case ( 2X high CFM 120mm fans blowing onto the cards) plus 3 top exaust fans etc.. I cant OC the 580 above 800Mhz. Technically these cards should hit at least 850Mhz.

That being said, these babies dont make much noise and do run very very cool in the right case!
