News Comments > Vista Halo 2 Delayed Again
4. MS just doesn't get it May 24, 2007, 10:26 zaq
 
Halo 2 has totally lost its luster now that Halo 3 is being announced all over the place, people are actually playing Halo 3 (granted on consoles).

That aside, when Halo 1 came out on PC ... even though 2 years after xbox, it was still groundbreaking and incredibly fun. I upgraded my PC for Halo 1, and it was soooo worth it.

But making it Vista only? lol Vista is a nightmare. MS business practices are starting to lose their effectiveness, and that organization is such a slow, boring, behemoth.. other than buying out small versatile / agile companies, they have no recourse against other innovative companies. Stunts like forcing Vista on people to play a bloody game is just going backfire, end of story.

2. Oh My God. Nov 9, 2006, 14:42 zaq
 
Here I was thinking they'd fix the REAL problems with BF2142, and all I see are some zarking fixes about the accuracy of the assault rifle along with some proper stats awards!?!?!?

What The HELL is wrong with them??

How about the fact that TITAN mode is almost unbearable, titan moves... insane lag. Almost unplayable!!

What about the HUNDREDS of cheats/hacks that work in the game? Such as stat padding, and teleporting into the enemy titan core?!?!

What is it with these idiots. I've learned my lesson about EA. I hear its a crappy place to work also, I can see by the quality code they produce that this is likely true.

(Dice code you say? well they own dice.. so stuff it)

Same rehashed stuff from the other splinter cells or is there something "New And Improved" about this one?

The graphics really look sweet. Is this a new engine? Or the same one as the first? Does it support advanced shaders 3.0 etc?

Last one I tried was the original Splinter Cell.

Crazy people will always confuse their reality and perform evil acts that normal people won't understand.

People have this instinct to want to blame something for random violent acts because they can't deal with the fact that it IS random. People will go insane and kill others... even in a world without video games and media.

I'm sure in the middle ages they blamed the meat loaf for acts of violence, or maybe a provocative cave drawing if we look further back.

You can't stop insane individuals from getting bad ideas. I'd say the U.S. goverment sets a much poorer example than any movie or video game you can find.

Viper your "review" /rant is lame.

Most of your critiques are related to weapons not being what YOU expect in 2142. Sure tehre are some annoyances with recoil or vehicle speed etc. But you know they want to promote some kind of other gameplay ... its called teamwork.

A game where super-soldiers have supreme lazer weapons and can run across a map in 5 mins and can destroy a mech single handedly on their own without breaking a sweat is... BORING

News Comments > Battlefield 2142 Demo
7. I tried it this morning for 45mins Oct 6, 2006, 16:10 zaq
 
I'm not going to squal about all the horrible physics changes because I haven't tried any of the betas... this was my first crack at it.

It looks nice... very decent gfx effects. The gameplay was smooth.

My first 10mins of playing involved me getting disconnected from the master server twice... EXTREMELY ANNOYING.

Afterwards I was able to play a couple of matches.

I consider myself to be a good FPS player.. but more in the quake realm. These massive battefield games really confuse me at first. So as soon as I enter the game.. my first instinct is to run around aimlessly, and camp.

At one point I spawned near a nice looking aircraft, ready for me to pilot.. Excitedly I double tapped my forward key to run over to it. I died.

Yep.. I ran into the unmanned... motionless vehicle and killed myself. GENIUS! is this some kind of joke?

Ok... so now that I learned my lesson, I decided to attempt to fly the beast (by first walking over to it slowly... very.. slowly..).

Aah! I'm in the pilot seat... but within moments of attempting to accel forward, I begin rubbing the aircraft against the edge of the mothership thing.. and explode killing myself.

ok... 15 mins left before I have to cab it to work (yep.. missed the bus now).

I spawn again... Doh! game over. And I all I learned to do was kill myself in elaborate ways.

Ok.. 10mins left.. new game. I decide to man the gunner of that same vehicle and let someone else pilot.

I start shooting wildly at everything I see. Very entertaining! all the pretty flashing of the nozzle... the most fun I've had since 40mins ago! waiit.. a sec.... omg.. I think I actually killed someone, me look in the upper corner.. yep I killed a guy! I can now jump in a cab and head to work

So are ALL the vehicles available in the demo? All I hear about is people whining about unlockable weapons missing... but all the vehicles there? I spotted tank, jeep, mechwarrior (shut-up.. I'm calling it a mechwarrior), and those air vehcles that transport people, what about the fighter planes? WHERE ARE THE FIGHTER PLANES!?.

Yay for gamespot, the turd of the gaming community.

Honestly, this is the lamest approach I've ever seen.

Considering I disabled most of the useless "features" of service pack 2, I'm not exactly on the edge of my seat anxiously awaiting SP3.

just keep patching security holes. Thanks. And no I don't need yet anothing F8cking thing in my tray to let me know if I have a virus scanner installed... I'm the one who f8cking installed it afterall!

2. Doom 3? oooh I remember Nov 3, 2004, 10:33 zaq
 
That was the game that I spent $70 (Ca funds) on and stopped playing after 2 weeks.

(Yes the gfx were amazing... but the gfx are nice when I look out my bedroom window as well)

Love,

First, when I discovered the built-in wall hack bug.. my fucking heart sank. I couldn't play one round without being paranoid people were using it against me.

Glad the fixed it, but pissed that valve patches things they never even mention, and I think that forces us to trust steam a little more than necessary. I kind of like the idea of d/ling and installing patches myself.

Also (can't remember your name) I don't have an audigy card.. and my indoor envirments with sound echo really slow down my puter too. #$@%53@#$@#$

I dunno what the fuck thats all about

52. steam questions part 2 Oct 7, 2004, 17:11 zaq
 
One more thing.

If I pre-load onto one computer at work. Can I copy the whole steam stuff onto a dvd and take it home? or will registry settings shit all over my parade?

If I download the entire half-life2 onto one machine will I be able to move it to another after I upgrade? or do I have to d/l from steam all over again?

50. steam questions Oct 7, 2004, 17:03 zaq
 
Ok a) half-life 2 I imagine also has a unique CDKEY, does counter-strike: source need one too? or is it just free for all?

b) in offline mode, can you just give people copies of counterstrike source on the lan, and play multi?

c) in offline mode you SHOULD be able to play half-life2, how can valve check your cdkey in that case?

Mainly I'm asking because I have a lan at home with more than one PC. Once in a while I might have a friend over who might wanna play with me... I'm not fucking buying two copies for one household.. fuck that shit.

P.S. I don't need a lecture on the ethics of lan parties and licensed copies of whatnots... I'm asking technical questions. If you have a problem with my legal ethics, just notify the authorities and I'll be glad to talk to them.

10. this game is bizarre Sep 28, 2004, 12:17 zaq
 
It actually RELIES on bots for decent gameplay.

All human players on a multi match don't actually work very well.

Also, getting into vehicles is a waste of time. Apparently the whole game just plays itself while I lazily fly around in a TIE fighter. You can't really shoot the ground forces when flying a tie fighter.. you end up crashing after 30 secs.

So you spend your time shooting the enemy flyers... which of course do nothnig to help your teammates.
