Black Desert Online's combat feels like a revolution for MMOs

Emth

Loving this game but it is pretty demanding on the system. Mine isn't the best (laptop with a 3rd gen i7 and a GeForce 675MX) but I'm having to run at 1366x768 to get anything close to acceptable performance. On 1080p I get well under 20 FPS in combat even on low, despite my CPU usage only being ~30%.

So yeah, great game but beware if you have midrange system...

Why is more MOBAs bad? Saturation is bad for the developers but it's good for pushing the genre forward.

This is what top-level COD competition ****ing looks like

Emth

5 years ago

Am I the only one who doesn't have a problem with this? Frankly after watching a lot of slightly awkward, passionless pro tournaments over the years it's actually quite refreshing to see some emotion. These are highly competitive situations with large amounts of money at stake. This stuff happens in football every day and that is "just a game" as well.

Rayman Legends dev "pissed" at Ubisoft for delay after completing Wii U version, blames "men in ties"

Far too many stories like this. It was my aim for a while to become a game dev but the thanklessness of the career turned me off. Luckily in my job as a professional services software dev I don't get treated nearly as badly.

Thank god for that! The only time I envy iPhone users is in situations where the developers don't bother making android versions of excellent games due to piracy.

It might be expensive for an app, but it surely justifies the higher price.

Ironically the first couple of guns are often among the best for each class, or at the very least comparable to the best. But of course newbies won't know that, they'll see experienced players kicking their arses and assume it's their equipment and not superior map knowledge / skill.

Bad Company 2 is already widely considered superior to Black Ops and at least on par with MW2, so it's hard to see BF3 not being a fantastic game and objectively superior.

Black Ops sets new sales records

Emth

8 years ago

I love the videogame snobbery around CoD. Yes it's mainstream, yes it attracts chavs, but that doesn't change the fact that it's ultimately a well made tactical shooter with high production values and excellent replayability. I enjoyed Baldurs Gate 2, Civ 2, Ocarina of Time etc and I also enjoy CoD. There are FAR worse games out there.

"The question is - can you be bothered to learn it?"

I must be getting old because I feel the answer is no. I can't even be bothered to get back into something like WoW now. MW2 and its instant thrills have spoiled me.
