Aside of being a little taken aback at some of the more off-the-wall medic achievements, I'm having fun with it. Provided you don't feel like you absolutely have to have all the unlocks to compete or feel better about yourself, just keep playing the game like you always did and it's pretty likely you'll eventually get at least the first unlock.

The release pattern is a problem though, especially if they maintain this "one class at a time" schedule as they continue to release unlockables. It means seven more periods of "OMG I WANT TO UNLOCK EVERYTHING" orgies after release where it's pretty pointless to even think about playing the game for a while.

I'm predicting DoW2 will NOT give SC2 a run for its money, at least financially. It's a shame that they're scheduled to come out at the same time because in the end, the Starcraft name is so big that no matter how much better a game DoW2 ends up being it will be overshadowed in the end.

11. crashed the website? May 6, 2008, 22:17 Jow
 
i'm a little incredulous that there's been that much of a positive response toward this game, but whatever... If the website runs anything like their previous games have, I guess it doesn't surprise me after all.

I agree with ya on that one - that's just funny and cool. It's shit like Triage (Deploy an ‹berCharge on a teammate less than a second before they're hit by a critical explosive), Placebo Effect (Kill 5 enemies in a single life, while having your ‹berCharge ready, but undeployed), and Sawbones (Hit enemies with your bonesaw 5 times in a row without dying or missing) which are just fiddly and kinda ridiculous.

I assume by "hilarious" you mean completely ignorant of any of the objectives?

The funny thing is that after looking at the list of medic achievements when they posted it a couple of weeks ago, I knew right then that we were going to see a bunch of ridiculous, non-teamplay farming behavior because that sort of thing is necessary to complete some of the achievements. Did Valve really not expect this?

good god, the number of people who already have all the weapons unlocked, the very DAY the update released... I had a bad feeling about the sort of play these unlockables were going to lead to.

Edit: okay, question - a lot of the posts on the official forums seem to indicate that a lot of folks already HAD medic achievements earned before this update. I didn't think there WERE medic achievements before the update - what's the scoop?

Does anyone actually care about a hack & slash RPG in this day and age?

Yes, yes they do. People (not me) are gonna be all over this.

I don't really get this "OMG NO CAMPAIGN!!!1!1" business, other than it maybe being the most accessible offline mode. Shrug.

Nothing but a bunch of assholes but you continue to participate? Not sure what that says about you, NW.

I don't think people are bitching about the game itself as much as about EAs lousy track record when it comes to support over the last couple of Battlefield games. It's kinda like the Gothic series - once you've gone through enough shit you really don't feel like subjecting yourself to it anymore.

3. Re: eh Apr 8, 2008, 19:51 Jow
 
All this talk about ranking, stats, and ladders and such doesn't mean anything when the game is unbalanced and stats so far have almost no meaning other than to prove someone has played a lot or very little.

Lack of balance aside, isn't that pretty much how it is in every other game that has rankings and ladders?

The same can be said about just about kinda food. Once you've had it "right", you can never go back.

Enjoy the trip!

I'd care if i hadn't already uninstalled the game... twice. Game drives me bonkers.

That said, I think it's interesting they're releasing unlockables for only one class. Maybe they chose medic because it's the least-played class in the game according to the Valve stats?

16. Re: So What Is The Combat Like? Mar 19, 2008, 15:45 Jow
 
The biggest difference between CoH and SoaSE is the speed. CoH is pretty frantic and it takes a lot to keep up with everything in that game. SoaSE, on the other hand... not so much. The empire tree is designed so well imo that it's really easy to manage everything going on despite the game being real-time.

Not picking this one up, but I'll be curious what y'all think of it. I'm honestly a little burned out on DoW and ready to move onto DoW 2, not some half-baked expansion that can't possibly introduce balanced races at this point despite changing the game entirely for the third or fourth time (which you know is gonna happen to make the new races work).

I'm STILL waiting for another Aliens vs. Predator game, done right with one of the newer engines.

Another reason is people have already played this game, over and over? How many Unreal Tournaments can they make? They all "look & feel" so very much alike to me.

That's it for me in a nutshell. Some friends of mine and I played this recently on LAN and it was fun for a while, but at this point I could easily go without playing it ever again.
