News Comments > Paragon Closing in April; Refunds Offered

I might be in the minority but I love, and still play Ut3. Love the vehicles and combat. I will sometimes play in a LAN at work or against bots at home and have a great time.

Wish they would do more of that and give us Battlefield like maps (large scale) but in the UT world.

I think we need some Foxworthy jokes to explain this...

When you fled so the other tribe wouldn't eat you, it might be a shithole.

When beer is illegal but boys are not, it might be a shithole.

When the only white men you've ever seen wear light blue helmets, it might be a shithole.

When toilet paper counts as an invention, it might be a shithole.

When your toilet is the ditch in your street, it might be a shithole.

When you have to walk 3 miles just to get a bucket of clean water, it might be a shithole.

When the local hospital has to re-use the needles on its syringes, it might be a shithole.

When the only school in your entire city is a Massadrah, it might be a shithole.

I haven't played or really much enjoyed a TW game since the first Rome. I've purchased plenty but they were all too complicated for my simplistic gaming preference.

I really wish more military\strategy games were like World in Conflict where I just handled units and not have to worry about cities and buildings and politics etc etc.

Why would I want to stream the games I already own if I can just play them on my PC?

whether you want to use GeForce NOW to continue gaming while away from your primary PC, to play the latest titles on a decade-old system thatís below minimum system requirements of new games, or to play PC games on a Mac

Anyone here remember GameTap? It was a great service before it was sold, then sold again, then sold again and put out of business.

You had an excellent selection of retro games, old PC games, and even some new stuff mixed in.

I think I paid about 5$ a month and used it a lot. I know I could just download the old retro games but GameTap made it so much easier.

All the games I could play for one low monthly price. I signed up for the Origin "all you can eat" game service a couple months ago and it just hasn't done it for me. The older games are there so perhaps I need to take another look.

Is this too difficult for SP only? Seems like they really want you to play COOP.

Can you add ai bot team players ala L4D?

No bots. Difficulty scales fairly well with number of players, so a starting player at Normal difficulty should have a fun time, not too easy, not too hard or frustrating. Can scale how long the matches are, as well (it's just horde mode with waves and a final boss, though some maps have mini objectives). Add more players and waves get more mooks, and mooks get more HP.

Playing solo is still a lot of fun, the game is fairly "tight", and I find it's a great stress reliever. Certainly worth the download and trial unless you have a really crappy bw cap.

I am enjoying the game and playing solo. I had to give it a second look though. Played it when the demo came out and was not impressed. I guess now that I have good gear, I am enjoying it more.

It's really scratched my itch for open world warfare since I could not get into ARMA and Argo let me down.

I really wish the Sniper Elite games were more this "open" vs just being big levels.

Never the less, I hope they do something cool in a sequel or spinoff. Vietnam or WW2 with this engine would be cool.

..... oh I just woke up. Is it the same tripe? probably... back to sleep... zzzzz

For the most popular FPS franchise of all time (at least as far as sales are concerned... i think) they certainly seem keen to keep the bar as low as possible.

Still based on a mutilated fork from the Quake 3 engine? probably.

How many billions has this franchise made? Think they could throw a few mil on some engine builders? NAHHHHHHHHHHH

I really don't care about SP campaign. I just want the MP modes to support bots so I can play with a few buddies on LAN.

Thank God. Thought I was the only one who felt this way. I will play this when I am done screwing around in Just Cause 3 but for all intents and purposes, I am pretty much done with it.

This game is fucking confusing. I can't seem to really get into it. It's a weird kind of game that I've never played before. I've had this game on my PC for a couple of years at least, and I go back to it every so often, but it still never really makes sense to me, and I'm not even sure if I like it or not... I can't describe it. :/

It is but after reading some reviews on here and around the web, I decided to skip it. Perhaps it's been polished up a bit since it launched. Thanks for reminding me, I may take a look again at it.

Been looking for something to scratch my L4D itch. Looks like this won't be it.

I didn't play it, but wasn't Vermintide a rip-off of L4D? I've heard some good things about it.

I LOVED the first one. It ticked all my boxes for an open-world survival Zombapocalypse game.

I feel exactly the same way. Some stuff annoyed me but overall I enjoyed it quite a bit. I wish they went more into cities with this one but I will be sure to pick it up.

I tried 7 Days to Die and thought that was just miserable.

I wish I had the money, and the time to check out these releases. I skipped Dishonored 2. It just seemed more of the same. This looks much more interesting TBH, however Real Life gets in the way.

I don't know how you people manage to do it. The older I get, the less time I have to devote to gaming. I still do game, but I find that I'm concentrating my gaming time on just one "game" at a time.
