Well, I wouldn't mind the Win 10 exclusivity if they have plans to release the other installments. Otherwise, no fs given.

Even though it's an older game, I had more fun in Scourge:Outbreak than GoW. (another cover based shooter)

Me too. I enjoyed it and hope the single player component gives me a good amount of gameplay. I am 41 and have no real inclination to play multiplayer.

I really enjoyed Future Soldier so I am glad this has similar mechanics.

I also liked the beta. I might grab the game if I find a good deal.

Despite the heavy accent, his review was informative. It gave me all the info I needed to know that I will not be buying this game.

Why can't they just make tracks, with customizable time of day, weather and car density. Give me cops who throw down spike strips and the ability for me and my buddies to play a race coop or even allow a buddy (or buddies) to play as a cop(s).

The reviewer is right, this underground race culture theme is old and beaten to death.

If you want to play a 2016 racing game with no in-car view, short list of cars, always drive in the dark and wet, rubber band AI, stupid story, Monster drink product placement.... this is the game for you.

Go for you Blue! Mom died of colon cancer. She never got tested. Had she been tested at 50 or ever 60, she'd still be alive. I am 40 this year and will probably be getting tested soon.

Wow, that looks really good. Thanks for posting that. Will try it tonight after work. Thanks again!

Here's a sci fi game with space combat, ground combat, vehicle combat, and cap ship combat with both multiplayer and full support for offline play: Angels Fall First. I've been playing it and while it's a bit glitchy, it's very cool (still in early access). It's kind of like Battlefield in space.

So sad that premier developers like DICE cannot include AI for game modes like Conquest. Instead, they just regurgitate horde mode and call it a day.

Sad. So sad.

I've read that ARK is best with multiple players. Is it at all playable solo?

ARK is better.

Edit: ARK is also on sale on Steam right now.

Looks to have good user reviews at Steam. Not a big consumer of top-down games but might have to give this a go.

Thanks for the follow up reply and explanation. So sad DICE, so sad.

Well, I guess I'll have to just stick with Battlefront 2.

We can play offline against bots right? That's all I care about.

Sadly, you can't set up a multiplayer match, and populate it with bots. Did you play Modern Warfare 2? There were 2-player coop missions you could play against the AI. Most of the maps came from the single player campaign. It was a lot of fun, but MW2 also had an over the top SP campaign that was pretty fun (although not as good as MW1). SW Battlefront will only have the coop missions. And it's unknown how many. Given how linear they look from trailers, I'm not sure how much replay there will be with them. Given how many 10s of millions they're using to make this game, it's really sad that they're not throwing in another half mil or so to build AI bots into the game. I'm really on the fence about getting this for that reason alone.

News Comments > No Star Wars Battlefront Split Screen on PC
47. Re: No Star Wars Battlefront Split Screen on PC Jul 15, 2015, 14:20 maddog
 
The last DICE game with ai bots in mp was Bf2 (maybe BF2142 now that I think about it)

Having been involved making navmeshes with a couple BF2 mods that focused on ai bot play (AIX), the modders were generally let down that DICE dropped support for MP AI. But this is not surprising as they would clearly make more money from DLC than from people making maps with an editor.

DICE maintained that the deformable terrain was the cause to remove AI bots. Said it was too hard to program bots to navigate the terrain that could suddenly have a crashed building on it.

Doubt we will ever see true mp bots from DICE again.

Like some others have posted, I am 40 with a family and MP games are not in my wheelhouse much anymore. I get maybe an hour a night to game, perhaps more on weekends. I'd love to play more of these MP games that are coming out but just don't have time to get good at them.

Any word yet on AI bots for coop or mp modes? I know they showed the defend mode against waves of attackers but nothing yet on if I can add bots to the other various matches.

Everyone thought this was going to be the game to finally replace L4D2.

I have yet to find that game. Coop, fast zombies, AI friends. Was hoping for coop mode (via patch or update) in State of Decay but nope.

Really hope L4D3 gets released.

News Comments > Joe Montana Football 16 Revealed
9. Re: Joe Montana Football 16 Revealed Mar 17, 2015, 12:33 maddog
 
I played the original Joe Montana football back when it was on PC in the 90's. I was in high school. It was a great game at the time. The lack of real names or players did not bother me at all. I remember the game used the real numbers but not the names. For instance, Ronnie Lott was still 42 but his name was Ricky Little or something like that.

Anyways, since it's UT, perhaps the names and teams can be altered with mods etc.

Hey, I made a couple of the AI navmeshes for maps for that mod. Glad you are *still* enjoying it!

Too bad more games don't have the mod and AI support that BF2 did. Shame that DICE let it die from their games. Hopefully someone can do some magic with the new UT engine.

seriously, what exactly do you want from a game?

1. Offline single player mode vs. bots, and coop with my brother vs. bots.

2. Modability.

Hell, I would have bought it if they included just 1.

*goes back to plaing BF2 mod AIX*

The first game was a fairly good game to me. The world and plethora of zombies made it exciting.

I surely DID NOT like the searching mechanic and it got old really fast.

In comparison, I greatly enjoy State Of Decay and how searchable items are simply glowing. Much easier and quicker.

I hope they change the searching for loot in this game to something quick and easy.

I also prefer the inventory system in State Of Decay as well.

I would be happy if they just slapped a more current skin on Red Faction Guerrilla and called it a day.

Loved that game!
