10. Re: Wait a sec... May 2, 2008, 21:22 shinchan0s
The funny thing is that after looking at the list of medic achievements when they posted it a couple of weeks ago, I knew right then that we were going to see a bunch of ridiculous, non-teamplay farming behavior because that sort of thing is necessary to complete some of the achievements. Did Valve really not expect this?

What's really funny is that all the newcomers will see all the shit going on with the medic spam and achievement farming believing it to be typical gameplay. The game was SO much better before this new release. I have to kill HOW MANY Scouts with my Syringe gun?

The weapons were kinda blah. The bloodsucker seemed useful but invulnerability is way more useful than the Kritzkrieg (it should charge up faster). The ubersaw just sucked - I got more crits with the regular bonesaw. I'll admit that I cheated to get the unlocks but Valve took them away anyway so no harm done I guess. They should just scrap the whole BF2 gimmick and give everyone the damn guns already. They're definitely not upgrades. I certainly won't be farming for them.

Damn, that's some impressive prose. You can call it pretentious mental masturbation, but that writing coupled with Gabe's face in the last panel is teh win.

That's my favorite PA comic. It's especially awesome to anyone who's familiar with Warhammer fluff.

You know what I think? I think the blend of Tycho's (I know his name isn't Tycho blah blah) pretentious writing style and liberal swearing is funny. It just works. But I guess that's just me. I try not to over-analyze my gaming web comics. I realize that whatever Holkins motivations are for writing in such a way is irrelevant. It's gimmicky anyway but it separates PA from other comics like B^U.

Bethesda or EA? Pick your poison. They both suck.

(EA would be the lesser of the two evils IMO.)

PA has been more hit-or-miss lately but I still love it. If the nobody here else does... that's fine, I can understand it.

Bob the Angry Flower (not gaming I know - but a lot of geeky references) is the best there is.

B^U????? Seriously, what the hell? CAD is the WORST web comic there is! Give me a break. THIS I CANNOT WRAP MY MIND AROUND.

Updated CTF mode to remember the player who stole the intelligence from the enemy base and reward that player if the flag is captured by someone else.

THANK YOU!!!!! This used to bother me extremely.

Yeah, that's my main beef with the game. I mean Homeworld came out like freaking 10 years ago! It's a big deal considering combat (the game overall isn't very deep) is the only thing going for SoaSE.

14. Re: Please die? Nah, Sims is great! Mar 19, 2008, 22:04 shinchan0s
The vast majority is made up of women? The fanbase for the Sims is closer to a 50/50 split between genders. You'd be surprised at the number of guys (and what they look like) who play the Sims "legitimately". Heck, I used to play the original Sims a fuckton. I'll admit though, if a girl's going to own one PC game there's a 99.9% chance it will be a Sims game.

The Sims is good and bad for PC gaming. Good because it forces casual people to upgrade their PCs up to par and stores have to provide SOME space for PC games. Bad because well it's the Sims and EA, I guess.

2. Re: yay Mar 19, 2008, 21:52 shinchan0s
Haven't you been to the official forums recently?

Blizz has totally neglected the hardcore raider community. It was a slap in the face to WoW's most dedicated players by reducing raid sizes to 25 and 10. The 40 man raids were the greatest. I raid for fun! Blizz also narrowed the gear disparity between arena gear (more like welfare epix amirite?) and raid gear. Unconscionable. What's the point of raiding now if a raider can no longer kill 5 casuals in 2 seconds? I worked hard for that gear! This game isn't about fun for the majority - it's about entitlement for the minority at the expense of the rest! I obviously know more than professional game designers; this is not at all about my own self-interest but what's truly best for the game community. What Blizzard has done now... how is that fair!? Waaaaaah! Somebody change my diaper! I f***ing stink!

PS: Sarcasm. Raiders and Druids are the scum of the earth. The forums are more entertaining than the game itself. blahblahblahblhablah

2. Re: whats this RTS stuff?!? Mar 12, 2008, 14:12 shinchan0s
They're "Demons" now? They used to be called "Fryhtans".

I'll always remember this series of games as the little AoE clone that couldn't. They used to tout some guy named Elliot Chen or something ala Sid Meier on the box. Of course, I still have no idea who this guy is...

To be fair though, I thought the second game was pretty fun.

Yes it's your opinion, and you chose to reiterate your points to me a second time even though I told you I wasn't going to debate what game requires more skill. That's why you need to get a life.

You're fun to talk to, Dagok.

And you are still arguing about what game requires more skill...seriously, get a life.

It's about as dumb as arguing which sport requires more skill.

It's my opinion... on a gaming discussion website. Oh, the horror.

Seriously, Dagok. What is your fucking problem? Go bite a dick.

29. Re: No subject Mar 2, 2008, 13:47 shinchan0s
Both games have different skillsets that cross over. To say that one requires more skill than the other is just stupid.

God forbid I offend any CS players out there. Let's keep everything PC everyone!

I really can't think of anything that someone learns mostly from CS that can be used for a game like Q3. The learning curve for Q3 is higher.

Using your sports analogy - a lot of NBA players talk about catching up to the "speed" of the NBA game after playing college. It's the same way with Rocket Arena or CTF, I think. The battles are more 3-dimensional (w/ rocket jumping, jump pads and how the maps are constructed) and faster w/ bunny-hopping. Yeah, you have to know the map and predict actions blah blah blah but in Q3 all that happens faster.

You can't tell me that CS is a more "cerebral" game than Q3...

20. Re: No subject Mar 2, 2008, 03:32 shinchan0s
Everyone who sucked at Quake 3 flocked over to CS and that's why it became so hugely popular. It was 10x harder to get a kill in Q3 then it was in CS. The majority of kills in a game from CS come from spray-n-pray and camping a corner with the AWP. Seriously, try that in a game of vanilla Quake or Rocket Arena. There's a level playing field a game of Rocket Arena - the only variable is skill. In CS a guy with AWP sitting at a choke can easily net a dozen kills because the odds are stacked up in their favor.

I don't think I've ever had my adrenaline pumping during a game of CS... Action Quake2 on the otherhand...

I'll admit, I eternally hate CS now. If it never existed AQ2 would've lasted for another good 2-3 years.

The economy is overrated in WoW, anyways. Seriously, who cares about inflation? You can't buy anything worthwhile in the auction house. Crafted items are pure shit so why grind gold/mats for them? You can get the best items from PvP or an instance drop. I cannot understand why people grind mobs in this game... gold buyers are soloers who just wised-up IMO.
