Why no lasers?
April 30th 2003, 23:56 CEST by _Fury_

I'd love to play these so-called 'game' things with you all, but the first and last 'realistic' game I enjoyed was the SOF2 test. Not enough to buy the real thing though.

Why can't my needs be met? Why are the basic tenets of fun, such as aliens and lasers and magic missiles being neglected these days? Good lord, if I wanted to play with an M16 or whatever I'd have joined up with the Army at age 18.

thinking about it, there are lots of games with aliens and lasers, aren't there? I'd say there are at least as much alien games as realistic games. I guess you're playing the wrong games.

I blame a lack of good beam weapons.

Hmm, I expected this to get voted down.

But seriously, this whole realism thing is lost on me. I wish there were some good, free, multiplayer games we could play on butter that didn't involve the dreaded realism.

Ah, the horrible darkness of the bread box! The slime-coated hideousness of the rarely cleaned butter tray! The shambling terror of the cold cuts!

That too. I mean what game had REALLY REALLY good beam weapons besides Freespace 2?

Not a single one! The beam weapons in Homeworld were nice but they missed just that one special thing.

Sure, but what if you want to head-shot people from half a mile away with a Desert Eagle?  I suppose you could spend 10 years training to be an ultra-commando, but who really has that kind of patience?

Aren't games using hitscan for bullet weapons still?  That M16, for all intents and purposes except the skin, IS a laser gun.

I dunno, something about bunny hopping around with an AWP or some other Sniper zoom weapon scoring headshots 4 out of 5 times apparently means you have some mad skills...or somethin. =|
Maybe there's a reason some Counterstrike clans are making 60K a year?....meh

I've always wondered - did Volition create the sounds for the beam weapons or did they pull the sound files from a library?  I haven't heard anything quite like it.

Oh, and fuck Nintendo.

I'm in the tree thing in Zelda.  I beat the boss that you take down with the boomerang and I'm sitting there waiting for Link to walk to his spot so the "you win!" cut scene can start playing.

Alas, he's stuck on something just off screen and can't make it today.  So sorry.  Please reset your GameCube and try again.

Fuck.

I had to take Suikoden III back because I can't finish it during my finals. :( Damnit, I'm going to miss that game. I can't wait till we are reunited.

You took it back to the store?

You know, there's this remarkable new invention called the Shelf, and it stores games for you while they are not in use. I also happen to have direct personal knowledge that the Shelf is compatible with Suikoden 3, because my copy of the game is sitting on one of my Shelves right now. You would be wise to invest in one.

Re: Opencrap User...

Is it just me or is the quality of our trolls really going downhill? This guy's schtick lasted all of what? Five days? And now he's semi-contributing and just wise-cracking for the rest. How I pine for the good ole days, when the biggest troll on the board was the one writing the topics and people were threatening Ramtin with 'we know where you live'. Even Dinglehoffen doesn't post often enough to be effective any more and as for Your Friend? He's positively civilised these days, apart from being a disagreeable cunt.

Apparently Bush Jr. will copilot and land a Navy plane on the USS Abraham Lincoln.

From the article:

"He will address the nation just as he did at the beginning of the combat," Fleischer told reporters. "He will address it now as the major combat operations have ended to mark the importance of this moment."

The address will not be a victory speech, and Fleischer said U.S. forces still face dangers from "pockets of resistance."

"It is not the legal end of hostilities," Fleischer said.


Err... there was a legal beginning of hostilities?

I'm one of those freaks who can equally enjoy a "realistic" game like Raven Shield as well as one of the over-the-top shooters like UT2003, so I don't know what I could really say here. I like lasers. Yes, that's about it.

Any recommendations on a four-port router? I'm willing to consider any brand but Linksys. Linksys ate my baby or close enough, so I've taken that particular brand off the list.

Don't touch the Dlink DI-604. It ate my babies, and all those belonging to everyone else in the neigbourhood.

It's just a 60 doorstop now, thanks to the wonder that is Dlink tech support. Wankers.

Inspired games are so awesome. The game screams, "We have something cool and different. We poured our heart and soul into this game. It's worth your time and money to continue!"  Such were the games by Looking Glass, Id, Epic, and a few others.

I can't stand developers who charge $20 for a game "produced in less than 24 hrs."  It cheapens the industry and attempts to convert gaming experience and quality into a "support our poor developers" campaign for easy cash.

We're gonna have a little place wit' rabbits.
