News Comments > Morning Mobilization

Our university is fairly married to Microsoft and Active Directory. With Win 7 and 10, our calls have been limited. Dell hardware is not bad and works well. Hard to beat i7's for under $700.

Most of our calls are not directly OS related but rather third party apps and browsers. Usually some old app on campus still uses Java and we need to come up with workarounds for this. Also, apps from medical companies, custom apps and bad websites account for most of our calls.

If it were up to me, I'd move to thin clients and virtualize the whole desktop and simply publish apps to the desktop as they are needed.

News Comments > Ghost Recon Wildlands Betas Set Records
13. Re: Ghost Recon Wildlands Betas Set Records Mar 2, 2017, 12:58 maddog
 
I was really bummed by the open beta. I LOVED GR:Future Soldier and still play it today.

I dunno, I guess being 42 and not have the time I use to, these games that require grinding out just to unlock something that should be in the game from the start are not that appealing to me any longer.

I love the open world concept but I feel GR:FS was a better game.

I may pick this up when it goes on sale. Not a day 1 pick up for me.

Did you like Ghost Recon Future Solider?

I had a great time playing that in SP. AI was good (both team and enemy).


quote="SpectralMeat"Feb 23, 2017, 09:55]My problem with this one is the same problem I have with any other coop games. Unless you have some dedicated friends that are available the time you are available to play coop with you, the game is pretty terrible in single player mode.
I am hearing it is a blast in coop mode though.

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?

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.
