News Comments > TRIBES: Vengeance MP Demo
18. quality not quantity... Sep 29, 2004, 16:57 Capt Gerkin
so what if there are only 11 maps..!!! it's not quantity, it's quality! until we find out that all 11 maps suck the discs right out of the spinfuser, I think y'all should just be quiet.

on a related note.. tribes 1 was awesome, great, and almost perfect... tribes 2 was alright, not great, but pretty good. the SP demo of T:V... I hated it, total crap.. didn't feel like tribes, didn't play like tribes... let's all hope the 11 maps are great MP maps

7. what?! Sep 7, 2004, 17:50 Capt Gerkin
I just don't get this... MS is willing to patch tiny little issues like a "rare crash bug" and someone attacking the game server but ignores the biggest problem with the game... IT SUCKS!

Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not one of these ignorant "I hate anything that's overhyped" halo haters. I own the XBox version (bought the xbox to play it), I got the PC version the day it came out (helped start a clan that, at one point, was highly ranked) and tried CE... in the end it's still a shite game! I don't blame Bungie for this... they've had no say in it ever since Bungie was bought by MS. Halo1 was rushed out the door and with poor polish, and even with that it was still a kick ass game, 3 YEARS AGO! Can you honestly tell me that if Half-Life had half the completion, no mod value, and was released 2 years after the PS version that anybody could possibly care?!

halo2, rock on... halo1, RIP

1. sadly... Aug 13, 2004, 17:54 Capt Gerkin
sadly, is this a surprise to anyone? besides KOTOR they haven't put out a good title in quite a while and with Sam n Max canned as well as Full Throttle, I think it was only time before we say this.

1. community support Aug 10, 2004, 12:29 Capt Gerkin
good to see they are giving the community a lot of new goodies. I remember when this game first hit about (jeez...) 3 years ago? It was buggy but got better... how did the final product come out (anybody still playing it?)?

Please God let it be a new version of Stunts! That was my favorite game for a LONG time... I just loved getting the cars to helicopter spin after hitting something.

10. Re: No subject Aug 5, 2004, 12:26 Capt Gerkin
Now I'm sure there has been some research done that shows the video games have an influence on your activites when young. hell, when I was 8 everytime I saw a brick wall I punched it thinking it would spew out money, but my mom didn't try to sue Nintendo when I had to go to the hospital for a broken hand.. she told me I was an idiot for thinking punching a brick wall was smart and I learned my lesson.

Maybe what these parents should do is realize they failed horribly at raising their son/daughter rather then blame it on the game they LET their son or daugher play!

I've been playing video games since I was 6 (I'm now 24) and when I was growing up my parents always new what I was playing. Were they worried that Metroid would make we want to kill bugs and roll around in a ball? no! did they think when I was playing Need for Speed I would start driving my POS fast and wrecklessly, no! Why, because my parents also RAISED ME! I don't give a shit what you play or do, if you parents don't take the time to raise you, you are going to end up a little immoral...

Maybe instead of blaming video games for teaching their kids that kill is OK (which obviously, according to Manhunt, a rated M game that should have NEVER been in these kid's hands), parents should take some responsibility and say "oops, we forgot to teach him killing is wrong."

118. Re: No subject Aug 3, 2004, 16:15 Capt Gerkin
I remember the first time I played Quake, I hit this square pad in the floor and these two blocks came out of the ground and moved into the wall. when the door open I shat myself. No really... I was so scared (lights were off, headphones on) I really shat myself...

I have doom3 sitting in my car while I count down the 107 minutes until I get off work... will I need new to pickup some new underwear on the way home in prep for the gaming tonight?

well it sounds like this game really sucks as... I'm glad the UT2k4 mod community is going nuts. Now lets hope FragOps gets significantly better (tried the inital release and it looked about as bad as coutner-strike... for a game that's nearly 5 years old that's bad).

Because the released game had EXACTLY THE SAME ERRORS as the demo.

so you've played the final release....

28. wow.. Jun 23, 2004, 11:10 Capt Gerkin
so after this blog was posted I started looking for reviews... ok, none yet.

so I started checking the forum here to see what people were saying, and I realized something strikingly pathetic about most of the posts... they are absolutely useless.

everybody who posted a "it sucked" message should go back and delete it. you offer nothing to this site or to the people who are reading. the only good post was by "instant" talking about SPECIFIC problems. if you don't understand the simplicity behind "teut"'s message of "tell us specific problems" then you are totally useless.

now, I don't condone anybody trying to get the gaming community to pay $50 for a piece of betaware, but (as my mom always said) if you can't say anything nice... don't say anything at all. Better yet, if you can say anything constructive, then shut the F$#$ up.

Moreover, who has even played the final release? everybody is talking about the demo here, so explain to me how saying "this game sucks" is supposed to reflect your educated opinion about a product you have played?!

I hope this patch doesn't break any of those wonderful mods that have been released (like Troopers, wow what a good mod).

36. Re: Reason for the delay Jun 7, 2004, 13:27 Capt Gerkin
I just got a hot tip from an unnamed assocaite who's former roommates with the cousin of GB:

3d Realms has been secretly working on a joint project that will combine Prey with DNF. The project is called Prey Forever and will have more lines of source code then the Voyager space probe!!!

News Comments > On DNF
19. Re: No subject Jun 7, 2004, 12:33 Capt Gerkin
Frankly, I'm getting tired of DNF news posts that reveal nothing and really serve no purpose other than to get people round-up. I say, until there's some REAL news, don't post anything about it.

I get tired of people who don't understand proper english... it's WOUND-UP.

On topic-I highly doubt anybody has touched a single piece of DNF code in years. My bet is on the fact that they realized that there was no ROI in DNF and gave up. Maybe the title will be optioned to someone else down the road as it doesn't appear the current programming force (if one exists) has any idea what they are doing. Jesus, by now I could have written DNF... hmm, new project. I've got the Bruce Campbell movies on DVD so there is all the audio I need!

The question is really rather they balanced out the sniper rifles or not. I can't stand a game where 30 seconds in you're already dead from 1 of the 3 snipers on the enemy team
