bitches impossible as no one but 9yo's will play it. Another developer who is clueless, FPS's still trying to be MMO's and MMO's still trying to be FPS's. Its a sad joke to see developers so clueless and feeling they have to be something else to sell.....
Its too simplistic.. The game requires, progressive and interesting statistics, and goals to win, moreso as a part of a team...
un-coordinated 9year olds want to sit in a corner and act like they are improving their game with upgrades and fake stats.... So why not beat the middle man and just include a aim bot for them and call it a day?

Who woulda thunk it? the first post in a thread about John Romero referred to his moronic (but iconic) "make you his bitch" campaign!

Planetside is both a MMO and a FPS .... so I would not be too critical of MMOs trying to be FPS.

For fuck's sake, John, it's about time you stopped believing your own bullshit.
All you ever were, was a level designer for the most advanced engines ever made. There is nothing startling or even halfway competent about your work.
* You do not understand gameplay.
* You do not understand complexity.
* You totally fail to grasp the purpose of character customisation
* You are clueless about atmosphere and how aesthetics produce specific effects upon the players
* Your understanding of scale and perspective is non-existent.
All you are is a man-child who thinks his own personal vision of what's "cool" is somehow going to be shared by others. Despite the fact that Daikatana was a bomb and every single good thing Ion Storm ever produced had sweet fuck all to do with you.
Your absence makes a game significantly better.
Don't worry about whether you talk about your game or not. It'll still be shit, because you simply have no fucking clue about what makes a good game.
Christ, I can't believe people are still giving this colossal failure more press. He's like the Derek Smart of the FPS world.

And wasn't ION Storm(does it still exist?) just focused on iOS games?
