    Battlefield 3 Alpha Beta

    Wait, so by your logic witcher... you have to be either a CoD player, or a "casual" player to know that Medal of Honor is a steaming pile of rubbish? GG. I will probably wait for the open beta. I don't want MoH anywhere near my house, let alone inside my house or worse -- tied to my Steam account. Regardless of BF3 closed beta access.

    Battlefield 3 Alpha Beta

    How can something be an alpha beta? <- Confused.

    [ALL] Driver: San Francisco

    Yeah, played the shit out of all the Driver games, and this one looks fun. Bought it on Steam the other day. :)

    Are FPS games going backwards?

    I don't think there's a great deal that can be done to expand upon the core gameplay (this also applies to most genres). What devs should be focusing on, more than anything, is a well paced, well thought out design and overall, a balanced (action/story/puzzle solving/whatever else) game. HL2 is a great example of this, I think. Not to say that HL2 is the perfect model for other developers to mimick, or copy... but taking notes would be welcomed. While the Call of Duty games for example have indeed found great success, the gameplay is copy/paste, and all they really do is try and out-do the previous game in terms of action scenes and overall intensity. This is all well and good for a couple games in succession, but then developers should be trying to find ways to expand upon the game's variety a little, which would also result in an increase in length, as you'd be doing more than just shooting your way through scripted action sequences. I enjoy FPS, it's probably my most played genre... though my interest is lacking lately due to all the overly generic FPS games popping up. Many of them look kinda cool, or interesting... until you play it for yourself. I hope Battlefield 3 is the game to rectify this.
  5. I think I've only seen Operation Metro on Rush... with a handful of players. And Rush sucks. That map would be complete chaos with 64 people running around on it.

    Bad Company 2

    I played standard in the beta. Then a couple weeks in (from memory), hardcore servers started popping up. Started playing hardcore, haven't looked back. Accidentally joined non-HC servers before the server browser actually worked properly (you'd think after developing so many online games, DICE would at least have a working server browser on release). Tried playing anyway, hated it... went back to HC. I prefer the 'realism' (used loosely) of it over standard mode.

    Sounds like you're playing standard mode. Standard mode is a bit of a joke.

    Bad Company 2

    AEK / T88 / UMP / M24 Those are my class weapons of choice. With occasional bouts of G3.
  9. My bet, is that we'll see similar (maybe a little less) performance to BC2... but there'll be DX11 eye-candy options that'll grab your GPU by the throat and start applying pressure. :p

    That calculator would be better if it knew the prices you actually paid on each game so you knew what you spent. Either way, my 104 Steam games are sitting at $1389. It will be interesting to see Nav's result if he/she posts it.

    I think some people need to realize that 'smashing' people in pub servers isn't exactly an achievement.

    I like how you took Nuke's mockery of you two, and countered it with more of what he's mocking you guys about. Good job, bro.

    Indeed. I bought most of the games I got from my phone...

    What, your laptop can't load the Steam website... or what?
  15. Pandora Tomorrow has the 2v2 Versus mode.Chaos Theory has an improved 2v2 Versus mode. Double Agent has a dumbed down version but with 3v3. Chaos Theory is the best one, I should know... I've put over 1000 hours into CT Versus mode. :) My favorite PC multiplayer game ever, so unique, and it really relies on teamwork to win vs decent players. It's just a shame the Australian community was extremely small. Due to this, myself and my team mate were the best players in Australia. Then eventually all the locals stopped playing. :( Thanks to the disappointment that was Double Agent Versus mode, the 'vets' from Splinter Cell Versus are attempting to develop a UT3 mod (though I think it is standalone now, it just uses the UT3 engine) called Project Reality, which is supposed to emulate the gameplay found in Pandora Tomorrow and Chaos Theory, with tweaks and gameplay/balance improvements. http://www.projectstealthgame.com/ No idea how long they've got 'til a playable version is released to the public though.
