I feel like the first game that threw the PD out the window was the excellent Elite Force.  Shooting aliens with phasers was a blast.  Of course, it helped that it was set on the Voyager, who were all trapped in an unknown universe and could shoot stuff.  I think it went downhill from there, keeping peace and all.

I really liked the first EF (except for it being too short) but never played the second one.  The demo turned me off with the inclusion of the Star Trek version of a shotgun.

I agree that people were scared off by Crysis seemingly needing a top-end machine to run.  It's actually playable if you are willing to give up the bells and whistles on a minimum requirements machine (and the minimum requirements are not unrealistic at this point).  However, I'm not sure how many people are willing to play FPS' when the graphics are turned down.

plus the whole selling point seems to be the OMG graphics.

CeeKay - you sure you're actually defending a capturable spot? The Bane do make advances towards spots they can never capture, just to make the game look more 'alive'. You'll gain Defense Tokens as loot if you stand on their corpses for just a moment if you are (and Assault Tokens if you're attacking the place and killing the people that come out of the base when it's not yours).

yeah, I was defending the Imperial Valley staging area, which according to the game is a control point (I was also getting the defense tokens).

Thos patch notes sound interesting- I was wondering if there was a way to fast travel other than using the waypoints.
61685  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Tabula Rasa beta on: December 16, 2007, 08:24:37 AM
so, I just spent like the last 90 minutes defending the Imperial Valley, routinely taking down 'reds' single handedly, and I was wondering is there ever a chance for them to capture a base?  It seems like they never really make a dent in the defenses.....

61687  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Tabula Rasa beta on: December 16, 2007, 05:08:58 AM
OK, definitely loving it.  Of course I probably picked the server no one's on- Pegasus.  I like the base defense opportunities that pop up, so far I've gotten 2 defense tokens- Landing something and Imperial Something.  At the imperial place all the enemies were red so I just kept on plinking away at one with my lightning/rifle and got credit for the kill and the token too.

I'm a level 8 soldier right now- how many levels are in the game currently?

I just think Crysis is about a year or so ahead of it's time.  By then maybe a much larger majority will have pc's capable.  Now, only a few do.  I certainly won't for at least a year or more.

+1.  For the first level I was able to play with very high settings, and then for some reason after I got past the demo portion my performance died.  The high req's are probably scaring alot of people away.

Why was that trailer bootleg? Anyways, saw it in the movies last night. It.was.fucking.awesome.

it was bootleg because it was recorded using either a video cam or someone cell phone cam and not an official release.

BTW, what movie did they play it before?

Quote from: Starshifter on December 15, 2007, 08:30:44 PM

I've said it a billion times before.  Star Trek is NOT about combat.  Star Trek Conquest is an oxymoron.  Star Trek is about exploration and making contact and learning about new species.  Combat is for defensive purposes only unless you are a making a game focused on the Romulans or Klingons.  When will the developers ever learn this.

That is the old Star Trek. That is Roddenberry Trek. There is nothing wrong with it. Not one iota. It is a wonderful philosophy and made for wonderful TV for almost 20 years. Unfortunately, it also severely hampered the story progression of several seasons TNG, Voyager, and even the first couple years of Enterprise. The DS9 developers were allowed to approach the Trek universe from the other angle, and the results are some of the best sci-fi, well, ever. When Enterprise approached what would have been the dark, gritty, ugly first few years of Starfleet it became a superb show.

There is a place for a mixture of the old ideal of Star Trek with a more pragmatic look at what the galaxy of Star Trek would look like. Saying that combat or conquest has no place is trying to make the show a fairy tale-unless I guess you are specifically referring to the mission and behavior of the Federation itself, and not "Star Trek" as a whole.

And yet, this game is about none of that.  It's hopping around planets and fighting whatever Klingons, Romulans, Borg or other race that I don't know (but was huge on DS9, apparently) happen to be taking a leak there.

I figured with your love of everything kitschy from that time period and hatred of remakes you'd need someone to hold you.  I guess it'll have to wait until the announce the Emergency! remake starring Will Ferrell, Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller  Tongue

so the PS2 version is 15 bucks, and the Wii version is 30   disgust

i wonder how well the ps2 version looks upscaled on a ps3.  probably better than the $15 extra just for motion controls. (who needs motion controls in a tbs, anyways?)

the wiimote probably makes a good pointer though.

Actually it's quite easy to get a Wii in Japan nowadays.  I mean according to that article they only sold 180k in November (as opposed to something like 1 million in America) so they're not really hard to find.

they need to ship those over here then.
