Title: What games do you play online?
Post by: Spunky on July 10, 2006, 06:44:20 pm
Although theres alot of these kinds of threads up at the moment, i wanted to get a list of games with the people who play them so we could maybe organise some teams or something.

I currently play:

Dawn of War: Winter Assault (Only comp stomp matches though, i can't take on other humans)
Planetside (TA and NC on the EU server)
Freelancer (Jolt.co.uk, i don't play this seriously though)

I will be playing (with new pc):

Battlefield 2 (No addon - Give me the helicopter and we'll do some mountain surfing!)
HL2 (Might get DoD to play with my dad, no other reason)

diablo 2 expansion.

simple, brutal, beautiful

I can't stand most MMOs... people everywhere (or players, even)

you can hide away with a few friends in D2X and other b.net games.

I think the reason for the decline of coop is that with the Internet, it is much easier now to gather lots of players for a game. Coop was mainly used to compensate for a lack of players. Now that more people can play together more easily, the gamemakers seem to think that the demand for coop has decresed.

I love coop in games, but haven't played any in a while, and I almost never play online. But if we could organize something like Spunky suggested, then I would love to participate, even if it ain't coop.

We could all play a game of Sven Co op? I imagine most of you have a copy of HL1 somewhere, it's a bit frantic and running in sometimes, but still co op fun.

Hmm. A dedicated Sven server seems like a good idea...

*ponders*

I could do it. Anyone up for it?


I've heard mixed reviews about Titan Quest. I'm always up for another Diablo 2, but I'm still wary of games that claim to be "better versions" of D2. I still have a copy of Sacred here, untouched since the day I bought it. *shudder*

Im sorry :( Its like diablo II only its 1/10 as good in every aspect. Even the graphics are better in diablo2 imo :(
Hate the controls.
The story didnt catch me.
The game doesnt feel like diablo. It feels like controling a unit from some rts and running around with it.
The fights are boring.
The game is boring.
There is no dedicated official server like battle.net, characterfiles are saved on the client. Cheating will be like in diablo1.
If Titan Quest was a home made game or some beta version I might give it another try but I got so bored after the first city I just uninstalled it. Loads of bugs in it too.

I haven't played a game online lately. Besides Poker, for the real life money stuff.

That's it though. Of course, im really busy this week and last week. May have more time next week. Maybe some more Space Cowboy, as lack of else to do.

Or I may snag a singleplayer game like Advent Rising or whatnot, havent played that yet. Still need to play Kingdom Hearts 2 as well.

Sven is a very fun modification of half-life and even better game playing it on a LAN where you can abuse people face to face, heck I'd rate it just a bit under TFC. I havent played this game in a while and I couldn't be bothered to get steam installed and upto date. Did I tell you I've lost my DVD(just the dvd I still have the case and serial! and gave away my free copy :S

BattleField 2 when I need to kill sometime and not have the same abuse you get in gulidwars. /chat wtb wtb wbt wts wts wts wts wts wtb wtbs OMG U R NOOB . I love the team type of game running around killing stuff as a team. Doing whatever you want as a team. The visuals are great when your waiting <10 seconds to get back into the game after running your jeep into an emeny APC, then trying to bail out before you hit the Jeep.

Post by: Spiff on July 17, 2006, 01:56:45 pm
This list is probably not in actual chronological order, I have a fuzzy memory. :p

The first game I played online was probably the Ragnarök beta with my brother. But when he quit, I later quit too; it was no fun anymore. Just grinding and talking to the occasional cool person among a sea of immature morons and racists. One of my characters were female. I'll never repeat that mistake.

We played a lot of Counterstrike with friends, but not that much on public servers. I remember getting killed by campers of the wrong team (e.g. Terrorists are not supposed to camp their own starting point in bomb levels, and CT not in hostage levels) and having to wait a few minutes to get back into the game. I remember one guy who was invisible; his argument was that it was his birthday, so he deserved a day of fun ruining other people's games. Was fun looking at some pro-level matches though. I remember one where a member of NIP just barely won the match by throwing a flash around a corner, then jumping in and shooting the guy, who was now turning his back, before the flash went off. Or mayeb it was a smoke that he knew the other guy would think was a flash... nice move nevertheless. :p

Me and my brother later played some Rocket Arena in Quake 3, the most balanced and fair FPS mod I know. Didn't last too long though.

I played some Deathmatch Classic (Quake 1 in the Half-Life engine), but that consisted half of getting kicked for owning people who still play with the arrow keys, and half getting owned by real old-school Quakers. No fun.

I started playing Tibia with a friend on and off for a while. This was a few years ago. Tibia must be the worst MMORPG ever invented, unless you're a sadistic powerleveler. Grind, get lag-kicked which kills you and drops you a level, grind. Snore.

Tried some Maple Story on my own. Grind, no fun...

Most recently played game was Ragnarök on a private server, 3x the experience and skill. People were cool there, and you didn't have to slave for days to get cool abilities and fight new monsters. But in the end, it's just grinding too. At least it's not Tibia.

Never played a strategy game online, I suck at them. My friend used to insist on playing Total Annihilation, and he won despite whatever handicaps he gave me. I think I only won against my brother in Warcraft 2 once, when he forgot to upgrade the armor and attack of his troops. As for Starcraft, everyone has a personal army when I've just started setting up a few defense towers in my first - and only - little base. :p

Post by: Julmuri on July 17, 2006, 03:11:56 pm
Now I have played Battlefield 2, Space cowboys and Starcraft: Broodwars. You guys should try Starcraft, because if you suck in most strategy games you can play UMS maps (User map settings)! Hehe I have played Total Annihilation too with my brother ;D I always won so he got bored with TA. ::)

I finally picked up Guild Wars again. Looks like they fixed it up a bit since I last played. I might even get Factions if the game remains fun for a while. I don't know, thought... Last time, when I got towards the end of the game and it forced me to start grouping with real people, it started to become a hassle. GW seemed to have the absolute worst player base in any game I've ever played. As in, worse than Counter-Strike and Starcraft put together. Also, a lot of the people I met were hyper-competitive. Lots of people would give out bad advice on purpose, hoping to give themselves a small advantage over everyone else. It just seemed like there was way too much competition and no cooperation.

But who knows. I'll give it another shot and see how it goes. Anyone else currently active? I have a 20 W/Mo that's ready for PvP, and I'm just starting a Mo/Me that's in pre-searing right now.

UGHHHH, i hate ling rushes.  Especially because i always use terran.  I always start off poorly as terran cuz i let my minerals build up, so i'd have 4 marines and 800 minerals :(.  But if a survived long enough, i smoosh them :D.  I used to team up with a clan buddy(clan MM, i was like the third person to join ;D)his name was lorddrj2003 or something and he'd make battle cruisers and i'd spam seige tanks and we'd attack one guy at a time.  It was fun.

Just a warning, factions is a waste of money if you aren't in a large and active guild as all the new content is basically aimed at the large guilds and new alliance thing. On the topic of GW, they annouced a new expansion today.

nVidia has a unified driver technology. It means that in theory you should be able to download just one package from their site and it sorts you out.

This doesn't apply to laptop cards, sadly. You have to get drivers for them from your lappy manufacturer.
