News Comments > Operation Flashpoint: Red River Trailer
3. Re: Operation Flashpoint: Red River Trailer Mar 8, 2011, 17:41 maddog
 
Thank you Red River for not being another COD\HomeFront\MOH clone.

This is the game that Homefront should have been...

Aside from the four-player campaign, the standalone multiplayer content sticks with co-operative rather than competitive modes. There's a quartet of distinct game types which will see you surviving waves of enemies, flushing out embedded AI, escorting convoys and performing search and rescue operations.

Playing the first mode (Last Stand, a kind of Flashpoint-styled Horde attack) perched on top of a windy hill as the Chinese move in, it's a shock how well Flashpoint handles on the Xbox 360 pad. Many will still prefer mouse and keyboard controls, but with stance on the left-stick and the new radial menu working well, it's far easier than expected to get into the move-and-shoot rhythm of the game.

Wouldn't be surprised if they backtrack on this...

"dedicated server browser executable, LAN support,"

Seems to me, I remember InfinityWard stating they would support mods and map making. Have yet to see either of those.

Can't believe Kaos will be gracious enough to give the few things PC gamers really love.

Agreed. I hate playing online with all the kids and cheaters. Give me bots and the ability to run my own LAN games at home with some buddies.

I still enjoy COD4 with the PezBot mod to allow for some LAN games with buds and bots.

Top down view appears to be the new mode de jure. Love the concept of this game but would have loved it better if it was third person over the shoulder or first person.

I'd love a Left4Dead MMO. Build fortresses, find food, fight zombies, find supplies, fight zombies, rinse repeat.

I really would love to be able to have a sit down with the EA exec who green-lighted this project. With the success of the COD series, wouldn't you do your best to give players everything that COD is not?
*Local dedicated servers
*Full game COOP
*Full editor
*Offline bots for those that like human vs bot modes to practice

This seems like they are not even on even footing with COD, and look to be certainly blow out of the water by Black Ops.

You'll never find "tier 1" operators wearing baseball caps on missions. Maybe around a FOB, but never on an active mission.

BRAVO!! I now have a reason to fire up my Onlive account to see if there is anything good added lately. Not sure why they don't buy Gametap and add their collection to the service. The wide variety of PC classics and arcade games would be great to play in front of a TV.

I was reading on Prodigy last night that this game is going to blow. But someone called and I got disconnected so I couldn't read the whole article.

News Comments > Mission Against Terror Open Beta Next Week
1. Re: Mission Against Terror Open Beta Next Week Sep 16, 2010, 10:49 maddog
 
I don't really know where to start with this game. Mummies, robot looking things, deathmatch, vehicles, bomb mode. Talk about kitchen sink. I can hear the team meeting now....okay, people like Left4Dead and counterstrike and Call of Duty and Battlefield. Let's try to do all that in a online game that we host.

And all online only? At least allow us to buy and download the game and run a dedicated server at home. Would be interested to know if anyone's played this game.

I'm surprised at the hate towards Battlefront and BF2. I loved the flight portion of 2. Battling it out in space then docking and accomplishing goals inside the ship, I had a good time with it.

And the games were always modable so new maps and skins continue to come out.

News Comments > PC Player Dominance Killed Cross-Platform Gaming?
9. Re: PC Player Dominance Killed Cross-Platform Gaming? Jul 22, 2010, 12:48 maddog
 
I predict the next Microsoft console will include some sort of wireless keyboard and mouse.

The more I see the development of the XBOX, the more I see MS wanting a single "device" future.

A device that could be both a console and a computer. We are already seeing net based content coming to the 360. It's only a matter of time before we get email, an app store etc etc.

People love the seemingly simplistic nature of a console and want that in a PC. Imagine a box that could connect to your TV for games, movies and the same box (albeit a second box), connected to a PC LCD screen for email, photo\video editing, email ,web etc.

I wouldn't put it past MS that the next console from Redmond runs a stub of the Windows 8 OS.

Cutter,

You are such a jack a$$. I've been on board with the system since I signed up months back and was given the free game. Used my coupon code for Just Cause 2 and it's been great. Speed is the same as it is playing on my local machine. Not thrilled about the fuzzy graphics but it's still early.

My connection is okay. Basic cable service from Cox here in San Diego. Nice service but as others stated, the pricing model will be tough to work through.

I'd love to see a flat monthly fee for all the games.

I think his "witty counter attack" was right on. Sadly, your over-generalization of PC gamers is pretty far off the mark.

I've been a PC gamer since Kings Quest and I really don't care to hack my game files in order to play the game. Regardless of whether or not I have the skills to do so.

The other PC gamers in my family will also not be tackling this "Easy" fix.

Another sad day for PC gaming. Never thought I'd see the day when a UT3 game did not have bots, I digress.

Anyways, no dedicated server or LAN play. Must be logged in with an online account to play or host a MP game. Fail, for me at least. Meh, at least it was only 39 and not 59.

Is Valve the only one who can get PC MP right?

@ Verno,

Can you confirm or deny AI bots in multiplayer? I'd love to be able to take on some bots with a couple buddies. With it being UT3, I am hoping for bots.

Thanks,

Right. I see more and more games coming out for consoles and not PC's and this really makes me sad being a lifetime PC gamer since the days of Zork.

If this is a service that will bring games to me that would have otherwise been on console only (killzone, Gears of Wars, Halo etc etc) and I can play with a keyboard\mouse , then great!!
