Hmmm....


I wonder at this point if they will delay a week just so they can time with PS3's weekly Thursday update of the PSN.    That would suck big time.

I believe the weekly update on PSN has been postponed until later in April.  All DLC and patches on PSN are delayed until they update the store.

I had a lot of fun while I played this.  Was really laggy at times though.

Big complaint was that there is no easy way to cancel, you have to jump through Disney phone hoops to cancel your sub

I really haven't developed a favorite yet but I have tried the Commando, the SCAR and Famas, and I prefer the SCAR so far.

while still having a blast with the game, I am seeing the issues with lag more and more along with a general clunkiness when trying to rapidly switch weapons.  Combined with the complete retardedness of the players and it's been a bit frustrating.  Still looking forward to friend play though.

I am working on posting some stats after watching the play by play, or at least a portion of it, on the team forums.  I am not real great at analyzing this stuff, so if anyone would want to step up and be the teams Defensive Coordinator, or Offensive Coordinator let me know.

As for play time I have gotten rid of almost every CPU player on the team to keep them from taking playtime from the actual human players.  Seems like regardless of depth chart the CPU puts CPU players in when they don't need to.

I am looking to add a 4th wide receiver to the team.  This past game the cpu 4th receiver still got like 40 plays, but I am pretty aggressive with my stamina settings to try and keep folks fresh, although perhaps too aggressive it looks like.  I am still looking for 2 backup DEs as they seem to burn energy quickly as well as a backup G, C, FB.  I may also need a backup FS and SS, as in the last game the cpu backup at those positions got about 45 plays each.

I'm a bit confused since I only got 45ish plays that game and the previous game I had 90 plays with the same stamina drain yet I didn't change my intensity.  Was this a setting change on your side that did it?  I was a bit surprised that they subbed me out.

The only thing that worries me about RvR is population balance.  I remember playing Midgard on Palomides and Albion having more players than Mid and Hib combined.  Made the frontier pointless unless you had a dedicated RvR team. 


Anyway, I'm still looking forward to Warhammer.  As I got my CE pre-ordered already

I'm hoping that only two factions should help that a bit.  Also now Mythic has experience with merging servers for rvr purposes so we might get cross server rvr areas.

I wish I could be so easily satisfied as some of you then, maybe I wouldn't feel like I just threw away the $60.  With the quality of games I've played in this last year, I see no need to put up with the shortcomings of this game.

I also was put off right at the beginning when the exact same bump mapping texture was used on the external shots of the sub and then on the stone walls in the sewer. 
8865  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Battlefield: Bad Company beta on: March 28, 2008, 04:30:09 PM
Did have a really laggy game today, was awful.

Also you can shoot doors off with the pistol.

I also had an issue playing on a team where nobody had a clue what they were doing except the entire other team and myself.  Scores on the other team were 150-90 down the list, scores on my team were 180 for me and 30 for second place.  Was the most frustrating thing I've dealt with in awhile.  This game should rock once we can put together our own squads, but the average person has no clue what they should be doing and it is starting to get to me.  Apparently the flashing icon on your map shouting 'COME HERE DUMBASS AND DEFUSE ME BEFORE YOU LOSE!' wasn't enough for them frown

We lost the complete map in under 5 minutes.

I also didn't like how you have to equip a grenade and then throw it...haven't we gotten past that?  Give me 1 button to throw grenades please.

Eek. That is one of the conventions of gaming that I also thought was dying out as I hate hate hate it.  I hope that's temporary as I find that to be of grand annoyance.

It's setup that way because not all classes have grenades and the ones that don't have another device that fits into that slot that may not be just a throw and forget type weapon.  Grenades in this game are more of a utility weapon imo anyway.

Every room you spawn in has a way out, you just didn't see it.  Doors don't open, but there was probably a doorway or window you missed.  When in doubt, don't forget you can blow up walls.

I've found all the icons and such pretty straightforward, especially if you watch the tutorial vid when you first start the game up. 

I still haven't had any lag or floaty aim, but it seems to be a problem from what I've read.

I had NO idea you could watch replays!

That is just too damn cool.

And for the record, since we have the sure-tackling Harkonis backing me up, Jeremiah "The Shogun of Harlem" Soulchilde is going to try and simply crush the living crap out of people on every play, period.  I so wish there was an Intimidation attribute!   icon_biggrin

On a more serious note though, I think it's really cool that I went into Advanced Tactics before the game and set my tackling to "Power" - which clearly states you will miss more tackles but try to force more fumbles.  I will switch it for the next game and see if there is any difference.  I love the fact that they give you a choice!

After the next game Soulchilde should level up as well.  Can't wait.  So glad you posted this Arkon, as I probably would have totally missed it on OO.



Do SS's not get the 'Growl' skill?  It lowers their morale right before you try the tackle so you increase your chances.

I think jumping is a good investment but not until we get some better team speed and tackling we are missing a lot of tackles.  I think as a team we should go for the sure handed tackles and not worry as much about trying to strip the ball.
Sounds good, for the record I didn't miss my tackles slywink  I never try to force fumbles either since I'm not a strength powerhouse.  I'm focusing on the tackle bonuses in the skills along with vision and coverage to try to prevent any long plays on my side.
8871  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Goal Line Blitz on: March 27, 2008, 08:14:30 PM
Right now my FS is focused on good tackling and vision and preventing anyone getting past him.  What is the team opinion on putting some focus towards catching/jumping and interceptions?  Should I stick with the tactics of never trying an interception unless I have double coverage or should I try to snag that ball more often?

ATB, I think you'd like the game a lot

Killing heli's is a bit rough, but they aren't really that effective either so it's not terrible for me.  There are AA guns and vehicles that work really well though.

Well, I tried this for 10 days.   It makes me excited for Champions Online but I just can't get past the dated graphics and grindy gameplay. frown

I'm surprised, I dont' really find the graphics dated that much.  I play with all particle effects at max and AA'd out at 1920x1080 and the game looks pretty amazing still.

The game doesn't get 'grindy' imo until the 30's and they've toned that down greatly.  If you found it grindy pre-30 you probably hate every MMORPG since CoX is pretty light on grinding unless you're just trying to get a badge by killing 1000 of one type of mob.

This is a good illustration of why I never cared for voice chat.  Hearing little kids refer to me with non-applicable racial slurs is not, IMO, any sort of progress in the gaming experience.

It's nice that you can tell your team mates where a sniper is without having to type it, but having to hear people talk smack is kind of useless.

Thankfully the game makes it easy enough to mute people.  I typically spend the first 30 seconds of a match muting people who were irritating in the lobby slywink

  Will probably pick up the others eventually since I like the game and will support it.  Same reason I buy the cars and tracks for Forza and the songs for Rock Band. 

On the other hand, not having certain tracks for Rock Band doesn't put you at a disadvantage to other players.  I don't like FPS' on the consoles anyways but even if I did I wouldn't be buying this game out of principle. But I guess because of my preferences it's a moot point.

I don't think not having these guns is going to put anyone at a disadvantage.  They really did make parity between weapons.  For example all assault rifles have the same magazine size.  Differences between weapons is mostly cosmetic with the exception of shotguns (there are pump and semi) and sniper rifles (bolt action and semi) and in both of those cases there are semi versions that are unlockable with levelling up so you're still not at a disadvantage by not buying the weapons.  It's not like there are any weapons that are more effective that you can only buy, or that you can't drive a tank without buying the license. (boy would that suck)

BTW, not having a song does in fact put you at a disadvantage in multiplayer because you don't get to play that song... ever slywink  And there are cars in Forza that are strictly better than cars that came with the game and you have to buy them.  You are in fact at a disadvantage in a ranked race vs someone who paid to have the better car but nobody bitched when they released those.

Also, was it just me or was it hard to make out what the hell the other characters were saying? Seems more often than not the dialogue was drowned out by the overbearing dramatic music.

this is definitely true, and extremely annoying to those of us who like hearing or reading all the dialog.  this could have very easily been remedied by having subtitles, but there isn't even that option

Posted by the community manager awhile back:

I have one suggestion when you get the game: Set the Music and Sound FX to around 4 and have Voices set to 10. If you have Surround Sound thatís a big bonus. Dialog plays a major role in the story and really draws you in; you donít want to miss it.

That was the first thing I did and I still had a problem hearing voices.  I'm amazed any of you could hear them at all.  I hate in-game music so I always turn it down or off when I first play a game.

Quote from: Calvin on March 27, 2008, 06:04:38 AM

So far I like it fine. I am not in love with it, but i think it brings some cool innovation in the series. The weapons are cool, the specials are cool, the destructible environment stuff is fantastic and a lot of fun. Weapon aim is a it floaty, there is a ton of latency all the time, and there is woefully insufficient feedback for when you are hitting an enemy and when you in turn are being hit. Lots of little problems like that-the game needs a lot of polish IMO, and I am admittedly not in much of a gaming mood lately, but I still have fun with it and will probably play it a little more.


That's interesting that you say that.  Floaty aim and lack of feedback when hitting and being hit is my biggest pet peeve in any shooter.  It's the reason I couldn't enjoy Frontlines and Army of Two.  Having said that though, I found none of that in B:BC.  I always knew where I was getting tagged from, felt like I was taking people down effectively and had no floatiness whatsoever in the aiming.  Haven't had a laggy battle yet either after 7 hours of playing total. 

After looking at how the various weapons work, I'm fine with the micro-transaction model.  There are weapons of close enough comparison available for unlocks that other than a completionist you don't really NEED the locked gear.  There are achievements in game (medals and the like) that require some of the locked weapons though I think they only require the ones you can unlock in-game and not the pay-to-unlock ones.

Because the gear that is pay-to-unlock is the pre-order stuff that would otherwise not be available to non-pre-orders at all I'm glad they at least offer the option to get them. 

I have no problem with pay to play game models as long as they aren't a huge and continuous wallet drain.  If there was something like medkits or extra ammo available for real money I'd have a problem and not play out of principle.  As it is, by pre-ordering the Gold edition I'll get 6 of the 10 locked weapons anyway.  Will probably pick up the others eventually since I like the game and will support it.  Same reason I buy the cars and tracks for Forza and the songs for Rock Band. 

On one hand I think if games are going to have a subscription model or continuous additions via micro-transactions then they should cost less than the $60, but then I realize that PC games were $50-$60 when I was in high school and the cost of gaming as a whole hasn't increased with inflation so I just deal with it.
