News Comments > Unreal Turns 20 - Get Unreal Gold for Free
36. Re: Newer engine mods and Return to Na Pali? May 23, 2018, 06:40 Slick
 
Jesus Christ, it's like a geriatric circle jerk in this thread. I bet when half of you ejaculate cobwebs come out. Everyone just play the "I'll show you mine if you show me yours" game and reveal how old you are already. I'm 35.

And I'm with uhh, whoever said that they enjoyed the gunplay of Quake 2 more. The guns of OG Unreal never really grabbed me (is it just me, or did Halo kind of rip them off?), but the engine was just... well, you know, Unreal. I distinctly remember in the first crashed ship going through a vent that had a back-lighted industrial 4-blade fan that was slowly spinning, and it was dynamically changing the lighting on the far side of the vent. I just stared at it for a good 5 minutes.

I honestly don't think I beat that game, I just wanted to gawk at my surroundings. And this other thing, I don't know if I'm the only one... but when I find something I really like, a book, or a game, sometimes I don't finish them. Because then they'd be over. I don't want them to be over. My favorite books I never read the last chapter...

Obvious millennial article if they believe Star Trek today is just awesomesauce. Last good ST series and flicks ended with TNG. It's all been going steadily downhill ever since. Discovery isn't a bad sci-fi show just a bad ST show.

The wife is a looongtime Star Trek nerd, like she grew up on VHS tapes of ToS. She has them all memorized. She hated the new movies (except for the 3rd one, cause it felt more like an old episode), but she REALLY likes the new series, she even ordered a "DISCO" shirt from China. It's packed with a lot of references to ToS that might go over other people's heads (mine) apparently, and she enjoys the departure from self-contained episodes because there was never any real drama because it would all get tied up by the end of 60 minutes... maybe a 2-parter if it was really serious...

She also informs me that the StarTrek fandom is the most self-hating community on the planet

EA YOU FUCKING MUPPETS

You fucked over Titanfall 1 by selling out and making it xbox-only

You fucked over Titanfall 2 by releasing it a week away from Battlefield 1

Now respawn is getting the braindrain you'd expect from two amazing games that were half-flops due to fucking retarded corporate execs fucking with them. ARAGH. Titanfall...so guuuuud. CoD... so baaaaaad.

Also, I watched the JackFrags videos about the Phantom program secret dogtags in BF1 last night... HOLY SHIT. SO DENSE. NEED MORE ASPERGERS. I wish I had that kind of time, as I did the one in BF4 for the DICE L.A. skin.

First one

Second one

Third one

Fourth one

Fifth one

I did the fifth one lastnight, as it's pretty easy, can be done solo in about 15 minutes. The rest though... I'm scared to even begin.

This may not make sense to many people, but I haven't even felt like playing a BF game since they took out runways. The idea of spawning in a plane is just ridiculous to me. Fighting over planes and strafing runways WAS Battlefield. Back in my day you had to earn your plane! You whippersnappers and your instant gratification

I so feel this.

I remember in BF3 I had some snobby clan ban me from their server for "BASE RAPING" because I had my tank near their uncap and was pwning their tanks as they rolled out. Thing is, I COULDN'T GO INTO THEIR UNCAP!!! It was all out of bounds for me. They had plenty of time to get their tanks safely out of the spawn area, and cover that I literally would never be able to access... whippersnappers indeed! Oh and I used to secretly love being spawncamped on the carrier in Wake Island, unable to make a landing. Because once you finally got through and took a flag it was very cathartic.

Random aside: Anyone play Frontline: Fuel of War? It was a battlefield ripoff from Kaos studios, who made the desert combat mod for BF 1942. Anyways, it was near future war, and one class had gadgets like Johnny-5 from Short Circuit (the OG military version), AND there was no commander, radar or anything that would let you spot people without actually seeing them. So you could parachute into the enemies' airfield, find a REALLY good hiding spot that would take them 20 minutes to find, and just deploy your kill-bot to the runway you'd control remotely, and just stroll up and down the airfield aceing any would-be pilots running for the planes ^_^

I don't see what's wrong with looking at changing the deal, as long as it's done in a legal manner.

USPS has been running at a loss for more than a decade. Amazon pays no federal income tax due to the same tax benefits that Trump put in place.

I see nothing wrong with him asking for more from Amazon. And this is coming from a lifelong conservative.

Life long conservative my butt! Your post is full of contradiction and false info. And before we continue, Iím an Ind that did NOT vote for him.

1. You say they donít pay taxes due to Trump. I didnít know heís been in office for decades! Amazon is just like ANY other business, taking advantage of tax benefits (write offs such as depreciations that each of us have access to if running a business) and loop holes put in place by BOTH parties.

2. They DO pay taxes, both income and B&O taxes at state and federal levels. Why donít you do some damn research instead of drinking the kewl-aid!

3. USPS authorities said they ACTUALLY DO make money off Amazon, unlike other companies they deliver for (junk mail senders for example). So to raise money on a company they make money from already when there are others they donít, makes you sound like you live in Seattle and are one of the Socialist Sawant followers.

Iím so tired of people just spewing info they hear from the cubicle next to them or such without actually educating themselves.

Informative post. Who is this lurker?

I'd really rather wait for OLED, even though it has problems with burn-in. Those FALD displays can be a big minus for many applications, having used one myself. Plus the response time for those LEDs getting bright and dim is not going to be anywhere near as fast as the LCD crystals doing their thing, so most gamers will just end up turning the feature off. IPS tech has good colour, but it's blacks are for shit.

OLED OR BUST.

34. Re: Black Ops IIII Announcement May 18, 2018, 01:01 Slick
 
Honestly, any of these AAA FPS titles could benefit from axing the SP campaign if it truly meant putting those exact same resources into expanded multiplayer. Most people don't even play the SP campaigns for CoD titles, or Battlefield titles. Those that do will usually only do so once. Think of the resources it takes to make a massive map, with all these AI triggers, cinematics, dialogue etc. etc. etc. that will *if lucky* only be witnessed by a player once. Compared to playing fucking Nuketown over and over and over 300 times across the life of a title.

The problem is they WON'T put those resources evenly into MP, they'll still give out a dozen maps at launch, then nickel and dime the players to buy DLC map packs.

Meh, Battlefront is getting tiring, but I just do very good at it, so it's hard to quit. I'm just biding my time until I buckle and buy FarCry 5. I know you can pirate it now, but there's no way I'm not supporting that game. I'm betting it'll be very cathartic.

Damn, was looking forward to Skull and Bones, but hopefully they use the time to really flesh it out, as 5v5 MP only could get tired fast. Still, any game that expands on the seafaring gameplay of Asscred IIII would be welcomed.

now watch , Steam will retaliate by removing all the COD's from their store & huffing / puffing their cheeks out. ;P

Would be funny, but EA did this same thing and we still have ME 1 and 2 on Steam.


They generally don't fuck with existing titles on the platform, but you can be sure that there won't be any more big Activision releases on Steam. And even though I fucking hate Activision, they have the right. Why would they just sign over 30% of gross (not profit, that's MUCH more % of profit) to a 3rd party store that spent nothing on development, marketing, and who doesn't even have any reasonable customer support? Battle.net support is appropriate for a multi-billion dollar gaming company... Steam "support"? not so much.

That's pretty awesome on MS's part.

I know a guy who worked on Sleeping Dogs in Vancouver, and they had a guy with disabilities write about how much he wanted to play their game. The team ended up creating some sort of custom profile just for that guy that allowed him to play. My friend said that it gave the team a real sense of joy to help the dude out.

I can see a move like this getting more than just good PR, but actually helping people. I think games should be playable by all, as it's the anti-sport. In general, your genetics don't really play a role in being able to succeed at videogames, as opposed to say basketball.

This will probably be one the stronger CoD releases in recent memory, as Treyarch is their core CoD studio after the mass exodus that Infinity Ward saw years ago when Activision decided to fuck over their entire dev staff from promised bonuses.

Still... is anyone actually excited for this? Even console gamers must have had experience brushing up against better FPS experiences by now, right?

Someone should tell these people how roman numerals work...

For the record I actually like Treyarch, they did CoD World at War which was amazing, but even with all of these "pro" PC features like uncapped framerates and OMG different resolution support... it's still just the same tired-ass old gameplay, the same tired small maps, the same tired gunplay, the same tired etc. etc. etc.

If they released the zombies mini-game as a standalone addon for $19.99 I'd consider it. But the core MP experience can fuck a duck.

So, WW2 AGAIN. That's too bad.

Not BF WW2, it's BF 1945. So the naming convention would indicate that they could make an easy transition to BF 2143 in the future ^_^ *fingers crossed*
