What in the fuck? I don't think they get the idea of capitalisim in the least...

At least all 3 of those games appear to be a reality. (obviously i say appear only in the sense of diablo 3 since fallout and starcraft are coming out this year)

Hardly news - but promising. If there will be another one I bet it won't be for a long, long time especially with SC2 coming out.

Requiem 2008-05-04 22:05

Sweet. A new Diablo would be great but SC 2 will keep be busy for another half decade.

I wonder when the next Silent Hill will come out?

Pr0az 2008-05-05 11:48

Last Silent Hill game i played was "The Room". That game was badass.

I enjoyed it. I've heard of new ones coming out a lil while back. It was talking about which system but i can't remember when or where i read it.

blitz906 2008-05-05 14:49

I just can't wait to get a new system someday so I can play some of these newer badass games without melting my processor :p

didn't even know cod 4 had a campaign. I think its completely overshadowed by its multiplayer. At least around here.

autumncurve 2008-05-05 16:57

i got so bored of the multiplayer, it was fucking awesome for about a month. then i went back to vegas.
i hate the way firing from the hip is useless most of the time and shotguns only fire about 6 feet infront of you, any more distance and the bullets seem to disappear out of the air not even hitting a wall.
and the constantly moving spawn points pissed me off.

i really enjoyed the campaign, it had some really awesome moments that really suck you in.

So any and all realism in games pisses you off? haha

autumncurve 2008-05-05 17:47

no i didn't say that :p i just don't find it fun.

and how is disappearing shotgun shells realism. as far as im aware people shoot clay pigeons with shotguns from a fair distance don't they? so surely they'd hit the side of a building from 20 feet.

agreeeeeed :beer:

nothing like tearing around with 31 other people, flying choppers, planes, forming an armour column and taking flags.

i was part of this thing called BF2C for a while where it was run like proper military style and had like 10hr long battles on a modded version of the game. proper nerdy stuff, proper fun :p
i was in armour/tank division, or infantry if it was a map without armour. stupidly fun.

edit: oh and if i get terms for the military wrong, i'm sorry. i havn't got a clue how it works in real life :)

You should get into games like operation flashpoint and Armed Assault. The realism is leaps and bounds more realistic. I'm sure whatever following those games still have is much "nerdier" as you put hah. I'm sure there are still alot of people who play Falcon 4.0 (insert whatever mod you want after this) as its the most realistic military flight sim known to man. I was really big into it for awhile but i'm on a break for awhile.

I made like a pseudo cockpit in my room. I removed the arms from my computer chair and turned 2 12inch pa monitors on their side and used it as the sides and a place to put my thrustmaster hotas joystick/throttle. I then connected the pa to a powered mixer i had that went to my computer so that alot of the bass would come through those speakers and would rumble the fuck out of my room when i would be in afterburner. That shit was awesome. Clocked hundreds of flight hours.

haha wicked. that is pretty awesome.

yeah i had a go on armed assault at my mates house, i was finding it pretty difficult to get my head around the controls but it looked pretty fucking cool.
i'd still like to get hold of that and have a proper go.

i love the ghost recon games as well. graw2 is fucking brilliant in co-op with some mates. (the 360 version i mean, i dont have the time, patience or money for PC gaming at the moment since my gfx card died on me last summer :( )

Ghost recon is very solid. Its like the old rainbow six but military.

Armed assault by comparison to the edited version i played a few months ago. I mentioned it before. I played armed assault after playing Virtual Battle system 2 and it sucked my comparison. Thats how fucking good VBS 2 was.

So realistic in that you could chose round types and all that. Fucking sweeeeeeet.

haha when were you playing BF2C? i've done a few tours there. was in the 4EU, 3UK and then NATO/N8O until i moved off here. it's a hell of a lot of fun. nothing like playing with the max amount of people and everyone is actually working together. the best though is getting all the people from your army and going on a pub server. people would call us hackers or we'd kill the server a lot of times.
