News Comments > Supreme Commander 2 Unit Trailers

this speaks for a couple of the massive units, but what about the rest of the units, the ones you're going to see the vast majority of the time? "And here we have amorphous blob A moving toward a whole flock of amorphous blob Bs, and OH LOOK AT THAT BLOB GET LIT UP"....

News Comments > PC Dead Space 2 "Under Consideration"
18. Re: PC Dead Space 2 Feb 11, 2010, 15:13 Jow
 
The premise of the first one was interesting but I never finished it - control scheme, especially being forced to use glovepie to make it work, was the worst I've EVER seen in a PC title. There's no way in tarnation I'd even consider the sequel unless they completely revamped that.

News Comments > Irrational Games Name Revived

In any case, a new Tribes game deserves to be made. Would it sell 10 million units? Of course not. It probably wouldn't sell a million. But it doesn't need to have a $20 million development budget and $30 million marketing campaign in order to be a success. TF2 proved that.

Keep in mind, TF2 is what it is today because of significant updates. I don't care how good it ended up being, you would never see a Tribes game in this day and age supported and kept updated to that degree.

"Activision believes that it can own Christmas 2010, just as it has in the last two years."

Someone or something needs to take these dillholes down a notch.

A skilled demo is frightening to behold and can own anything and everything - they certainly do NOT need improvement.

News Comments > Team Fortress 2 Patched
12. Re: Team Fortress 2 Patched Dec 8, 2009, 18:20 Jow
 
Up until yesterday I hadn't played anything but 2fort on the same server for well over a year, based on bad experiences with random maps/players. Yesterday, however, my usual server hadn't yet updated with the patch and I needed a break from paper-writing, so I hopped on a random map running arguably my second favorite map, Badlands.

15 minutes and 5 or 6 rounds of Badlands later (math says just over 2 minutes per round), I remembered why I cut myself down to 2fort. Scout swarms, horrific or completely lacking teamwork, and bears, oh my.

Back into my 2fort cave...

News Comments > Jeff Strain's Console Zombie MMOG
9. Re: Jeff Strain's Console Zombie MMOG Nov 23, 2009, 17:32 Jow
 
"This is a game that's designed from the ground up for console gamers. It's not a game that's being designed for PC and console or a game that's being designed for PC and being ported to console. Every MMO developer out there is dipping their toes in that water and finding it to be very, very chilly water, because console gamers have a very different set of expectations for how a game plays and how they interact with a game.

Somewhat ironic that this was the way PC developers used to talk until the fairly recent trend that PC titles are little more than slightly modified console ports.

More than any game in recent memory I'd love to see the PC version tank hard. Problem with that though is it'd provide justification to the bean counters to put even less effort into PC versions for sequels (if they'd even do them at all after that) and reinforce the behavior. You can't win.

Not that the PC version will tank either, cus as people are saying the number of preorders is breathtaking. Talk about operant conditioning...

Out of curiosity - I'm not really up on the networking technology responsible, but wasn't the lag problem with L4D2 the result of going non-dedicated like IW is about to do?

Do you know how easy it could have been to update the graphics and add a class or two to diablo or a few missions to starcraft?

Yeah, cus that's precisely what they're doing with SC2.
