16961  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW - Should I bother? on: December 30, 2004, 12:01:20 AM
Now, I know it seems like a goofy question to ask this, but I have the collectors edition sitting beside my PC and I'm not sure I want to install it. Maybe I should just sell it. <sigh> I've heard that it gets old quick, and that it's just more of the same.

I've held off on installing based on the fact that I didn't want to waste my first month over the holidays, but the more I think about it, the less I think it's a good idea to play it at all.

If the game was still sealed I would have likely sold the game online... (I got it for ~35US based on trading in 3 crappy games that cost me 25US, and paying the $10US to upgrade from standard to collectors ed. with the art and the pet thing). I guess I'm looking for someone to dissuade me from selling it; I really did want to play WoW a month ago. All the negative comments from my buddy and some of the stuff I've seen on the boards has thrown water on the fire.

Also, what does the pet do for you? (zergling/diablo/panda)

Any comments welcome.  crybaby

That's what I was afraid of.  If  a mission from level 2 is that hard, I was wondering about later missions just being ridiculous.  I'll have to play with those settings.  I don't want to buff at all, just need to gimp the amount of enemy units that come at me!


"tweak" it so you get the Balrog. That'll add a significant bend in the dark forces... I don't know that you can do this, but I'd find it absolutely hilarious to have the Balrog sitting in your main camp having tea with Gandalf.

They refer to the new OXM (insider rumors)... I'll check the mag tomorrow. Those insider articles are still hit-n-miss, so I'm not sold on this.

16966  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [DEMO] HL2 on: December 25, 2004, 02:18:24 PM
Quote from: "gameoverman"
As it is now, I'm even less inclined to buy the game than before, because they want to make me jump hoops even to play the DEMO!  It's a frickin' DEMO. they should be doing whatever they can to get everyone possible(like me) to play the demo, it could only help their cause(making money).


I agree that the demo should be as accessible to the public as possible; the only reason I can think that they didn't want to go that way is this :

Product A_RETAIL has set system requirements (internet connectivity being one)
Product A_DEMO should have the same requirements, as to not create a false perception of product A_RETAIL.

I know from my past few posts people may think I'm a steam supporter; I'm not. I'm indifferent to it, and if we're going to get online software distribution it's the next logical step. Hell, apps have been doing this for years (online registration to unlock full versions).

There is one other option: Half-Life 2 is supposed to be coming out for the next console system(s) ?

As to the 3 people here who haven't purchased HL2 yet: do you think if HL2 was released in a season not so glutted with A+ titles that you would have already purchased Half-Life2? I dunno, something to think about.

I'm finding it easy to ignore titles I would have normally purchased based on the fact that I already have more games than I can reasonably play.

PS - Using Windows XP as an example is pretty bad; Windows XP is likely the current most-pirated-software. I'm sure the percentages are less than the previous iterations due in no small part to activation and registration schemes, however it's not hard to find copies of XP. For reference, I own my Windows XP Pro (got it through the MS corp. partner deal for ~69US, full version, non-upgrade)

It's their bat, ball and diamond?
That's a totally ridiculous statement.
No offense, Purge, but last I checked they were a company trying to make money.

...and they still haven't got mine, even though i want to give it to them.
All they need to do is eliminate the Steam requirement.


Who OWNS the rights in the AUP & EULA? The company.
Who OWNS the licensed software? The company.
Who OWNS the authentication server that allows you to play? The company.

Bat. Ball. Diamond. This is how I see it: you can either play, or go home.

They have one of the most anticipated games from the past 3 years. They could have smeared crap all over each disk; the game would have made money regardless. I respect the fact that they are producing a quality product and taking steps to ensure both the experience, and their IP, is protected. Since they've done this (successfully, if not with a few bumps on the way) it's going to pave the way for new games. They also routed the retailers attempts to sell the game early; a sticking point with most software developers.

Remember, they already suffered once with theft of HL2 IP. Did you expect any less? The whining (internet generalization, not targeting you smile ) about online authentication is a waste of one's time. They decide the product they're going to release; our input on it is NOT taken into consideration.

If the fear of internet connectivity or registering your game is your concern, then I guess you're not going to play the game; or you're going to ask a friend to let you play theirs, or you're going to commit an act of theft and obtain the software illegally. <shrug>

I've accepted this change; I've voted with my remote, as it were. So have you, and I respect your decision to do so. I just don't understand the expectation that the demo of the retail would be any different.

Why is it unbelievable? Since the game requires an internet connection, and the demo is only available online, there's no reason for them to spend the time/resources disconnecting the demo version from their online deployment. Plus, if there are any patches it can be applied to all clients. <shrug>

It's their bat, their ball, and their diamond. You don't have to play; complaining about it isn't going to change the game.

EA is not destroying gaming. It is changing it from niche to mass market. Exactly what niche gamers thought they wanted a few years ago.


Same as killing it.


I dunno. IIRC, the video game industry has made 5+ Billion / year for more than 3 years; I think what's happening is that its starting to emulate itself too much. It *has* been mass market for a long time, it's just that everything coming out is a military shooter, platformer with quirky characters, or anime "inspired" RPGs.

It's like my video games all became the same effen game. Everything is the same lyrics, same beat, same song. Artistic diversity has given way to stockholder profit margins.

Pre-order from the store itself. That's what I do. biggrin
I preorder to get the goodies; sometimes it's worth it.

In this case, JE is already pre-ordered for me. I'm not going to wait for the PC version; frankly I prefer playing on a 51" screen with fully realized Dolby 5.1. <shrug> each to their own, I guess.

Your 20 cents? Nice. Tongue

I enjoyed HL2 and the story was very compelling. I noticed the guy in the suit several times in the game, leading me on (the one I remember clearly is at the end of the skimmer level).

Far Cry AI detecting me was far too stupid, in my experience. I mean, they'd notice me even though I was being stealthy, and they had their backs turned. Oh, and they'd all run through the same door for me to slaughter them. Mind you, I only played the demo; that being said it *is* the product released to showcase the game.

I dunno, FPS genre has lost it's lustre, but I *really* want HL3. slywink
16977  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What next? Paralyzed by indecision... on: December 15, 2004, 08:09:37 PM
Baten Kaitos is very good, although the first 45 minutes is waiting for them to take the training wheels off the game.

KOTOR2 is an excellent choice, but it *will* give you that deja vu feeling.

I hear Mechassault 2 has a pretty damned good story to it, and it's out the week between christmas and new years. Since the design has changed I don't think you're going to get deja vu.

Mario Party 6 is effen huge. One game lasts like, 6 hours. That could easily kill your time and it is a blast to play... as long as you have someone to play with. A buddy of mine and I played it for 7+ hours, and we had 2 cpu's set on easy AI.... should have been "retarded AI"... it was a 3 on 1 minigame where I had to hit A as fast as possible to inflate my balloon, and they had to work together to (which his AI "helpers" stood there) ... I almost peed laughing so hard... he was freakin' out pounding on the controller; he went from 0 to bitch in like, 3 seconds... I almost lost.

In retrospect, stay away from mario party (with easy AI), unless you have a stockpile of "Depends" you need to get through.


A Bard's Tale was pretty engaging too; I'd recommend it for a 3 day rental, or a bargain bin purchase.

Quote from: "Greggy_D"
LE, I love how you tell people that they are "wrong", as if you were the defining voice in computer gaming. :roll:

Those 4 points illustrated why "I" didn't like it.  Sorry, but someone's opinion can't be wrong.


 :shock: I can't believe I'm about to say this.... -LE- is right on.

1) As to linear paths and plotlines, I don't know if that's really a valid complaint, considering the game is telling a story. The first game was just as linear, so to expect the sequel to be any different without clear indication from Valve advertising is unreasonable. <shrug>

Quote
The Combine AI WAS boring, uninspired, and predictable. A true step down from HL1's Marines.

That statement begs the question. (basically, you are including an "unproven" as a "fact" within your conclusion).

2) If the AI is exactly the same, then it's not a step down at all. IIRC, it has been improved (and considering this is the next version of the product it would require quite the burden of proof to convince otherwise), your "step down" point is then invalid. The first part of your statement still stands, but would need to be revised with something like "I felt" to even be considered an opinion rather than fact.

More likely is that the gaming industry has learned from the AI in Half-Life and now you've become desensitized to the behaviours. Basically, *you* have gotten better/jaded/wiser. That isn't a limitation in software.

As to the combine forces in the square (where you're defending Alex) I found them to be plenty intelligent.  :evil:

3) The Lord Ebonstone granted you point 3 for your own tastes; you are entitled to your opinions with no dispute.

4) "Steam sucked" ?? You use the term "A LOT" and then never extrapolate. "A LOT" is a context sensitive term. 850 people is not "A LOT" in contrast to a million people (0.00085 %). If all 850 people showed up to occupy a 500 square foot living room, they would certainly qualify the term "A LOT".

I guess people in your generalization should have read the system requirements, including the requirement for internet activation.

There was a press release over a month before release detailing the internet requirement for installation. I guess they missed that too?

As far as I'm concerned, point 4 should read: "Ignorant People Suck... They buy a product they can't use and then complain about it". Valve is in no way required to release an offline-only game. I had no problems with steam. I will not be drawn into generalizations or absolutes; I don't know how many people made a mistake in their purchase. Windows XP has been on this activation thing since it's inception; this isn't a new experience, except maybe for pirates. Hell, most downloadable software has some sort of activation process, including your anti-virus software.

The online-requirement complaint is really thin. If you check with Valve they list ways in which to get around this activation as well.

Yeah, but wasn't there like a thousand years of peace at one time?

Hell some refugee guy in the game gives you one. Where did he get it?


I think Jedi get buried with their sabres; since they have a strict discipline I'd think they don't go hockin' dead jedi blades.

That being said; is it possible for a non-jedi to wield a lightsabre? (I'm not familiar with the books; I always assumed there was force involved with them).

Not that that has ANYTHING to do with this topic.

Oh, my impressions of this game is as follows:

The story and the multiple branching threads that no one could follow the first run through is worth bearing the sometimes jittery performance.

Quote from: "vagabond"
You are talking about at one time though. There have been a 100 jedi per planet at a time for several thousand years.  There would be tens, maybe hundreds of thousands of them by now. Like the Samurai swords, there weren't that many at any one time, it took a man a whole month to make just one, but over centuries they accumulate.


Think about this though; Jedi are hunted... I'm sure the Sith are collecting the lightsabers like trophies; also of the "thousands" of Jedi lost to the Sith, a lot of them were converted to the dark side rather than being killed (at least, that's what some of the info in the dialogue on the asteroid would indicate). Their lightsabers are still very much in use.

The other likely reason is that although there are dead Jedi, knowing that the Exchange (read: the intergalactic Mafia) are looking for more, as a mundane person would *YOU* want to attract the attention of the Exchange 'cuz you were walking around with a lightsaber?

When the Samurai were being hunted, their stuff was still around, but it was hidden for a long damn time  ninja (if Kurosawa is to be believed). Years after the pursecution had passed, the items tend to resurface. This game starts ~10 years after the Mandalorian wars when Revan and Malak were still on the light side. The hunt for Jedi is still fresh, with a sizable bounty on any lightsaber wielding fools. Hell, *I'd* turn you in for enough money.  :twisted:

That being said, I do wish we had lightsabers early on. Ah well.

To answer in shorter form :

1 & 1.5) yes it's that easy, and yes RF tvs are ancient, you will need a cable or run it through a VCR that has RCA inputs. slywink

2 & 3 ) you can go online with XBConnect; it's a peer-based and non-MS affiliated connection. No downloads from MS.. sorry. You can tell if an MS game will work with it; look for the "system Link" option for multiplayer.

4) Solo games are great; I like the fact that the Live service does help you even when playing solo. Live-aware titles (letting you log into the network but still be "offline" playing solo) means that you can play solo games and still be there to recieve invites for other online games.

Live can be linked to your MSN Messenger as well, so while you're fartin' around on the net you can see notifications such as :

So if I was waiting for jeffjones to play Halo2, I'd know he's online right now (playing a single player game such as Prince of Persia). (I'm -6hrs GMT, so it's 3:49pm or about 10 minutes earlier than this post). Live has some sweet stuff going for it; and I'm a PC gamer.

For reference, I was a hardcore PC player up until about 3-4 years ago; I used to host 30+ person langames on 100Mb back when the 16port switches were upwards of 500US. Hell, I started langames back on Arpnet with Duke3d.

The 16 port switch collects dust now.
