2201  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Diablo 3? on: February 16, 2005, 07:00:43 PM
Great to hear about D3!

I love mmrpgs and I think WoW is one of the best ones out there but I still think Diablo is the better game.

The difference with Diablo is that even with a short sitting (~1hr) I get a good sense of accomplishment.  Not the case at higher level WoW.  Maybe it's time for mmrpgs to move to the next evolution cause I've been playing the same game since EQ1 albeit with some of the frustration removed.

Had an awesome time playing 4 player co-op this weekend.  Kicked ass at 2 stars so we moved up to 3.  I thought we would get slaughtered considering the other 3 didn't have WE experience but we held our own.  Didn't win a game but kept it within 1 goal and had our chances at scoring.

Oh I won my 1st game in ML, 3-1!  All 3 penalty shots, heh only way I can get a goal so far smile  At least I'm finally getting in scoring positions so much so that the computer is fouling me in the penalty box.

Devil, I'm only doing slightly better than you in master league 3 stars.  In about 10 games I have 1 loss and 9 ties.  I'm doing very well in defence but I can't get a goal.  The one time I scored I screamed out loud.  That's the difference beween WE8 and FIFA, I don't wake up the neighbours while playing FIFA smile  I'm hoping though that it will get slightly easier as soon as I can trade for a decent striker (and I get more practice).  

I'm slowly getting more chances at goal, side attacks seem to work the best.  Often if you run along the sidelines, the computer will just knock it out and you still keep possesion.  The double tap cross (B) has worked well for me in creating decent chances.  Even though I'm using the most offensive formation, defence still seems solid.  I used to rely a lot on double teaming button (X) but I'm getting better at 1on1 situation with A and B buttons only.

Challenge training is a brilliant feature in helping to learn the game without having to memorize the manual.  Earn a few stars in there and you will see immediate pay-off when playing a game.

So far I'm really enjoying the game even though I am not a huge soccer fan (I just like to watch the World Cup).
2204  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / flight sim question on: December 20, 2004, 06:40:59 PM
Lock On is a very good modern combat sim.  Graphics are incredible.  It is not very beginner friendly however.
2205  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / EQ2 hints and tips on: November 26, 2004, 06:37:19 PM
This may seem pretty obvious to those who played City of Heroes but you can simply target the "Main Assist" and you will hit his target.  This is a nice substitute to using /assist macro because you don't have to keep reusing /assist each time the MA changes target.

There seems to be a slight bug with this feature because your auto attack remains on even after the MA has stopped attacking.  This can cause you to accidentally attack a new target so remember to turn it off manually after each fight.
2206  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / everquest 2 I need fighters/warriors info. on: November 26, 2004, 06:28:05 PM
With about 23 levels under my belt as a Berserker, it seems that Guardians are the best tank in the game followed by Berserkers.  I read a lot about every fighter class tanking equally well but this doesn't seem to be true in practice.  The two warrior classes seem to hold taunt the best and have more defensive skills than the Monk/Brawler/Knight classes.  

One big misconception was that Berserkers can only wear medium armour (which makes sense from a traditional role perspective).  But in EQ2 they can wear the best armor a Guardian can wear (heavy plate or vanguard).

Now I'm basing these observations on just grouping with other fighter classes.  If you play one of those classes and feel differently, I'd like to hear your perspective.

Off-topic: The latest nerf on the berserker aoe attack (blood rage) seems a tad much.  It only ever worked on green con or lower mobs reliably (almost never proc'd on a blue).  So now that it does so little damage, it's not worth draining your health just to do a little damage to green/grey mobs.
2207  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / EQ2. i hate it. on: November 22, 2004, 09:24:53 PM
I'm not sure I understand the complaint either.   Exploring is fun.  If you're really frustrated, ask someone for help.  Afterall, that's why the two M's are there in front of RPG.  Infact, someone ran up to me the other night and asked where the cemetary was.  It's was simple as that.

If quests are designed in such a fashion that a waypoint was setup for every place you have to go then the quest system would get old fast (e.g. SWG).
2208  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Everquest 2 - first impressions on: November 12, 2004, 09:59:13 PM
I think any class can easily solo to level up in EQ2.  It's just the uber items that requires groups and raids.  You are not required to complete every quest you take.  That's one of the things I don't like about the Quest system.  I wish quests also had "cons".

Quote from: "morlac"
Having a hard time finding quest NPC's?

Just ask your local guard!  Easy as that.  

Very nice tip morlac.   So many undocumented features in the game, we probably need a "tips" thread.
2210  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / EQ2 Servers and Characters on: November 12, 2004, 03:39:54 PM
I'm with the Wanderers on Crushbone:
Kublai, level 11 warrior
2211  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Low end systems for EQ II on: November 11, 2004, 07:30:22 PM
AMD 2100xp (~1.6 ghz)
Radeon 9800 pro
1 gig ram

Playable even on high settings.  However I turned it down to balanced/performance because I prefer high fps over graphic frills (although some of the frills look really good).
2212  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Last-minute pre-order... EQ2 or WoW? on: November 09, 2004, 09:54:12 PM
I don't see how WoW can possibly win on "immersion".  I was blown away when I hit Freeport in EQ2.  It was not unlike the first time logging into Kelethin in EQ1.  I don't see how cartoony graphics leads to more immersion.  Remember that we're not discussing artistic merit here.
2213  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Everquest 2 - first impressions on: November 09, 2004, 06:50:13 PM
A graphic whore's dream game.  I was able to play on high settings on my low-end machine (1.4 amd).  I hope this doesn't change drastically as server starts filling up.  Some of the scenery looks almost photo-realistic.  I'm excited just thinking of exploring the world because it is so beautiful (I think you even get xp for discovering new areas).

The game is very easy to pick up and play if you've played EQ1 because most of the controls/commands are the same.  I like that you can get a home right off the bat without any time investment like collecting money etc.  It is really easy to add deco and interactive objects to your home.

Those are my impressions after about 5hrs of play.  I was a huge EQ1 fan and so far I am really excited.  Of course it will take some time to figure out long term potential and it's hard to give an objective view during the typical euphoria felt at mmrpg launches.
