I always in the back of my mind expected earth to be a forsaken hell-hole - it always seemed to be the most likely possibility - I mean, why leave for the twelve new colonies otherwise?

You might have the BSG history a bit twisted.  They didn't leave Earth for the 12 colonies, they left Kobol for the 13 colonies of which Earth is one.

It's going to be difficult to play MP shooters that don't have destructible terrain now, regardless of how good they are.  The feeling of 'I saw movement up there, let's take the wall/window out and see who it is' is just too good slywink

Most MP games don't make it past a month or two with the GT crew, COD4 and the first R6:V were exceptions but they are in the past now.  BF:BC will probably last awhile though.

This is what happens to pretty much every game if you don't get in while it's hot.  This is also why when a new game comes out I play the MP before I play the SP.  You can always play SP after people have moved on but not so much with MP.  Just the nature of the beast with multiplayer games.  They come and go.

I played COD4 every day for almost 9 months.

well, playing with randoms vs decent players (ATB, Wonderpug, Teggy and Owain) is a pain in the ass.  It literally felt like me vs a team of 12. 

Bad news, Pug got my dogtags frown

Good news, I got his in true Rambo style.  Flew the chopper in low, saw it was him so I bailed at about 20 feet.  Knife out in the air, knife him in the back, kill 2 with shotgun, landmine and 'nade the crate and move on to the next.
8414  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Anyone else playing the BF:BC (Now not the demo) on: July 05, 2008, 03:56:34 AM
Yes, you did get my tags tonight, but I got yours as well.  Bringing my total Teg-tags total to two.  say that three times fast.

Part of the reason we won so quickly is the brokenness that is landmines.  Throw 5 landmines on a crate and a grenade and you've done 70%+ to it.  Hellspawn and I would both drop our landmines then a frag and the crate would blow in a single shot.

The game is unbalanced in the defenders favor unless landmines are used on the crate in which case it feels unfair the other way. frown

It was on Over and Out that we rolled quickly to the base, happens to be my favorite map.  Almost had your tags three times on that map alone but sadly you died right when I was swinging all but one of them.  I went 28-2 when defending that round slywink

Well to celebrate the 4th I sucked horribly.  Dropped my form from 10 before I took 3 days away from playing to 28 at the end of the night.

On the brighter side, I now have ATB's dogtags.

Was a good time playing with you guys. I do wish that once we've all locked onto the same squad you'd come back to 360 voice com...

It never locks everyone back in the same squad.  It might do it for 1-3 matches or so, but eventually it mixes you up again.  It's less stressful for us to just keep talking to each other continuously regardless of Live's fickle desires. slywink

Plus with the vent server we can talk before we play, after we play, organize when we're playing, what we're playing, etc.

Stats seem like they are mostly working, but the SPM is still pretty fubar.

Score per Minute -6.171   (it seems to only show the last round or last few rounds since I ended the night on a team killing streak of 7 intentionally slywink )


This seems pretty indicative of the balance issues of the game combined with the general ignorance of the general population of privates.

I'm all for getting rid of covers entirely, though the price should either be reduced or non-existant for people who don't feel the same way.

I wish we'd get more covers Tongue

I'd kinda like some covers that are actual covers and not covers that are trying to be as close to the originals as possible though.  I like to hear other artist's takes on music sometimes.

This sets off all kinds of red flag alerts to me from past experiences.  Though obviously not always the case, many times when people over-react like that it's because they themselves feel how they are accusing you of feeling.  Her insecurities towards your simple message to this girl may reflect something deeper in her own feelings.

Yes but how is it calculated? Is it a combination of stats?

Or is it like Halo3?

Not sure of the exact formula, but it has something to do with how retarded your gamertag is on a scale of 1-50. Might be why yours is so high slywink

8428  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Anyone else playing the BF:BC (Now not the demo) on: June 29, 2008, 09:33:00 PM
was fun.

Apparently once you max out your rank the form stat changes to a skill rating between 1-50 with lower being better.  Only one person can be Skill level 1.

I'm at 16 right now, trying to lower it but it doesn't want to budge.

ATB is currently 38, get crackin man! slywink

Wonderpug is 17, so close.

JarrodHK sittin in the mid at 28.

8429  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: DEWmocracy Contest - Old School vs. New School on: June 29, 2008, 05:37:37 AM
I'll say the coolest old school arcade game I'd pick would probably be Tempest.  The sounds combined with the ease of gameplay really sucked a lot of hours out of my life.  It's hard to pick a single one though, most of the truly old school games had an almost zen like combo of simplicity and depth that seems lost on the newer games.

Coolest new game is probably COD4 because it is the complete package.  First game in a very long time where the controls really felt intuitive and within 10 minutes I didn't have to think while playing (which is something that the old school games did so well).

I tried playing at about 7pm eastern and couldn't connect to the EA servers. After 5 or 6 attempts I played SP. Anyone else have trouble?

Yeah, and an EA rep posted in their forums that they know about it and are trying to fix it.

I think MS is still having issues when lots of people try to match in the same game.

I hate when they do that.  I remember reading a RPG review many years ago by a FPS player who hates all RPGs.  was ridiculous.

Yeah- even in the demo half the team would snipe and most of them would suck at it.

What's the worst is when you die, then spawn on squad and the guy is out in the middle of nowhere with barely any sight lines yet he sits there the whole time doing nothing.

Playing with friends is gonna be where itzzat.

Generally speaking, NEVER spawn on a sniper.  I rarely do and I rarely get stuck out in the boonies (or spawn on the missile they can call in, that has never happened to me).

I'll be there as much of the night as I can, except for an hour break because I think I need to watch I Survived a Japanese Game Show.

Quote from: Bob on June 24, 2008, 05:02:12 PM

Yeah, the whole squad communication/team lobby thing is what kills this for me. I don't understand why getting a team of people locked in and playing is so hard for developers to handle. Halo 3 did it with it's "couch" model and COD4 does it fine.. why is it so hard to get right?

I don't know about hte matchmaking issues, but I suspect that the reason you can't ocmmunicate across squads is because of bandwidth. It seems that there is far more oging on with BF:BC than ever happened in COD4 (vehicles, all those munitions to track, damage to talley etc) that perhaps being able to 12 people chatting to one another on both sides was too much.

As for controls, I spent days playing COD4 and it was a minor adjustment but now the controls in BF are easy.

As for helicopters- it takes a bit of time, but it's pretty easy once you get the hang of it.  The apache is easy to fly. That other copter on Oasis I found very hard to fly and still do.

I cannot wait to play this this weekend.


XBOX Live voice communications don't use the same 'pipes' that the game uses.  Microsoft servers are hosting the voice chat, EA's the game data.  They could have done it.

I'll add that even if you are trying to play with only 3 friends, you often don't end up on the same squad or even team. frown

I thought that was only when you first join the map.  Haven't we always all ended up together as soon as the round ends?

sadly no.  It seems random at the end of rounds.  I once had a 4 member squad where 3 of us were on one team with Teggy on the other.  We stuck it out and at the start of the next round it was the three of them on the other team and me on my own.
