Well, I had Origin installed on a laptop of mine so I gave it a go. Did the yearly price.

So far so good I guess.

Playing some Ultima 3: Exodus now. Going to see if the VGA mod will work on it.

What are your main issues? I took a look. The "vault" games look pretty good. Nice mix of old and new.

Or is the issue with Origin as a whole?

If I greatly enjoyed Future Solider, will I like this one as well?

Thanks!

Have you always wanted to play Far Cry in 3rd person with 4 player co-op?

if yes then this game might be for you, otherwise wait for reviews and or a deep discount.

speaking of which, looks like ubisoft is implementing stricter region controls, most of the discount sites only have the euro version for a decent price.

from my experience with the beta I wouldn't pay more than $40 for the base game, given that they're doing the season pass thing I think I'll just write it off completely.

I wish someone would bring back the GameTap service. Loved playing the old Atari games and such.

Wish they would go back to the Brothers in Arms series. Would love a four man squad shooter set in one of the many locales of WW2.

So many cool looking games coming out right now....This one, Watch Dogs 2, Shadow Warrior 2, Dishonored 2...the list is long.

Crud, still trying to finish Just Cause 3 now that I have a machine that can run it.

Hope this will quench my Left 4 Dead thirst since I don't foresee L4D3 coming out any time soon.

Yeah, heard it was okay. Nah, I was looking for just bots to play in MP modes. Similar to what I do with BF2 etc etc. Or even just play against some bots with my buddies on LAN.

Sadly, those bygone days look to be long gone. Although the COD devs keep getting bots in their games. Wish other devs would follow suit.

Get off my lawn!

For shooters with MP bots, I suggest Toxikk (free shareware version on Steam, full game $15) or Renegade-X, a free modern version of the old C & C Renegade. Both are free, so what do you have to lose?

No bots, no purchase. I know I know. I am a grumpy old man that likes to play solo in his freetime.

They did add them to Battlefront so perhaps there is hope they will come to BF1.

There's a campaign, grumpy old man.

Of course, this isn't a "performance patch" so they STILL haven't addressed the crash bug mentioned above. By the time they fix it, I won't even care anymore.

Thanks nin, that would be great if they get in. I just checked https://www.reddit.com/r/Cod4Remastered/ and I did not see anything regarding AI bots.

But I did find this so I might be picking it up https://twitter.com/wendellwobble/status/782973732524552192

Well, doubtful that the devs would take the time to add ai bots to remastered mp.

The offline AI bot community had to use the pretty good mod "Pezbot" so hopefully that mod will work with this as well.

Anyone got it (and MW Remastered)? If so, any good? Mainly interested in single player content, so the campaign and ability to play private matches with bots

It sounds like both IW and MWR both support offline bots. According to reddit, anyway. People were using bots in MWR earlier...

BINGO.

If it wasn't for gaming, I would be using a Chrome PC or Mac. I am really considering just getting a PS4 with the XIM4 thingy.

I kinda wish the Crysis games would get a reboot. Always had a great time with their AI and tackling missions with either stealth or firepower.

I like playing against bots because I am just not that good at MP games. I am on the good side of 40 and while I use to LOVE playing the BF42 mod Desert Combat on the "Don't Camp" server, I just don't have the time any more.

I want to get in, mess around and get out. I feel I would do the other MP players a disservice if I actually joined their server.

And sometimes I play with new players who may be even newer to the game than I, so an offline coop mode with bots filling the server is a great way to have a good time.

Glad to hear that people are still enjoying the AIX mod. I was responsible for the AI navmeshes for a handful of maps.

Was a really fun time working on maps. Hard, but fun. Wish DICE would release mod tools but I think those days are looooonnggggg gone.

What is sad really is that despite all the programming talent at DICE, they can't (or perhaps refuse) to get bots working on the frostbite engine. Some old statements from them indicated that bots navigating the deform-able terrain was why they killed offline play.

No true offline\coop mode against AI? Ugh.

@Jdreyer - Thanks. Checking that out now.

I was playing AIX 2.0 mod for BF2 last night. Man, I would love a version of that in Frostbite. I was thinking about what made it so much fun. Yes, it's got that classic BF gameplay, but also there's a puzzle element to it: what and how do I make a difference such that we capture enough control points to win the game? Is it better for me to take to the skies in an A-10 and knock out armor so that my AI has an easier time capturing control points? Or should I lone wolf it to the enemy airbase, capture it, and deny the enemy air assets for a few minutes (until they roll up in a tank, kill me, and recapture it).
I like that combination of tactical thinking combined with action game play. And so many toys in that mod.
