Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered is real, doesn't have multiplayer

NunianVonFuch

Does no Multiplayer mean the Co-Op Spec-Ops Campaign is also absent?

They used to split it into Singleplayer campaign, Spec-Ops and Multiplayer in the advertising at the time, but I won't hold out much hope as it sounds pretty bare bones.

Original was worth playing through but I don't remember much of it. Turing Test was the better Portal-alike. Still, they have good grounds for a great game if they build on the predecessor.

Wow that takes me back. Came free with my C64. As a kid I didn't realize that Jason could disguise himself. Also I loved the "Old McDonald" tune. So this meant I always protected the Farmer's daughter (blue dress) in every scenario. Until she turned on me and started butchering everyone in sight! Terrified me as a child, could never trust anyone again. Lol.

@Bratterz If you can get a positive answer on the mod part I'll buy it again. Love adding in kooky characters like Duke Nukem or Francis York Morgan and want to see them face off against X-Com addict console buds.
You could ask them if they've won the X-Com board game. It's ridiculously difficult!

The Untouchables brought ragtime and ultraviolence to 8-bit

NunianVonFuch

3 years ago

Loved the C64 version, although I have to disagree with the "review". The first level was brilliant! You had to hunt around the level for the key henchmen which took multiple shots from the Tommygun to put down. But when you found them you could juggle them in the air and riddle them with bullets if you had the upgraded violin cases. A key gameplay element which would later be used in fighting games as a standard. Also the 2 second first-person "video" at the end of the game blew me away as you see the mobsters viewpoint as he falls towards a car on the street below. Epic and very adult themed for its time.

The levels picked out by Graeme were very fiddly and would've worked better with the lightgun which did ship with previous models of the C64 but the game wasn't compatible.

I think we can all agree the roll was very cool though!

Konami to patch Silent Hill HD, Downpour

NunianVonFuch

6 years ago

They've been ridiculously lazy with the HD remakes. You can get the Silent Hill 2&3 PC versions to run in 1080P on machines older than the Xbox so there's no excuse for frame-rate issues in 720P and certainly not the fog problems. They should've released "HD" PC versions for download as well, would've been just as cheap on their part but given nostalgic fans another option as PC copies of the series are quite rare these days.

I'm really disappointed this isn't a proper 3D Southpark RPG on the scale of Fallout! The 3D style of the old N64 game was grand but this just looks like a decent throwaway sidescrolling game. Although better looking than most of its ilk it seems like a waste of all the talent involved.

Metro Politics: What Xbox's New Dash Means

NunianVonFuch

6 years ago

The worst thing about the new dash is browsing DLC on the marketplace. Now it only displays about 6 options in a huge icon format that's really hard to read. For example if you want to get the map packs for CoD they'll be mixed in amongst the avatar packs, themes and other crap leaving you to sort through 10+ pages of dreck just to give them your money!!! They should be making this as easy as possible, not bogging you down so it becomes a chore you can't be arsed with.

Trying to see what add-ons, demos, etc are available is terrible as well. On the old dash you could see a preview of the most recent 3 options available before you click in, so you were quickly able to see no new demos were available, or the new Rage demo was out! OMG! etc. Now you have to click in and on slow connections this means a wait of 20-30 seconds. They've crippled the service to accomodate the Kinect interface which is terrible! Waving your arms around the screen to select items is daft, especially having to hold it over each icon to select. I never use it and always pick up a joypad for menus, even in Kinect games.

It's a big mistake. It hides the content you want to buy and thrusts everything you don't in your face.

TL;DR - I'll be buying my content through xbox.com from now on, way faster and less cluttered.

Christina Hendricks in NFS: The Run

NunianVonFuch

7 years ago

That doesn't really look like her. What's wrong with her face? Demo is fun, but only because we're not getting a Split/Second sequel. It's very like the detonator laps where everything explodes as you approach it. But it removes any sense of tact and simplifies an already simplistic racing system. So it'll be fun to race through once, but it's not one you'd return to like Split/Second or even NFS:Hot Pursuit since multiplayer will be just a straight race.

Seriously though it sounds more extensive than Mass Effect 2's Lair of the Shadowbroker add-on though a bit more pricey than Bioshock 2's brilliant Minerva's Den. I'll probably wait til it drops in price in a month or two like Deus Ex itself, but I will pick it up at some point.

Rage

NunianVonFuch

7 years ago

The Gametrailers review has really sold me on this. Sounds very much old school in that the gameplay is the priority over all else. The way they handled the RPG elements is refreshing, minimal inventory management with and decent enemy AI not just at "higher levels". Fallout 3 & NV had the story with ropey gunplay, Borderlands had guns and co-op now it's time for Rage with quality gameplay and great vehicular action. A lack of bullet sponge enemies will sell it for me as Borderlands gameplay gets old really fast when you're playing alone.

FM 2012 requires Steam to play

NunianVonFuch

7 years ago

@Ryze you can't use Steam Offline on an always offline PC. It still needs an internet connection for the initial activation. I also don't get people listing 2nd hand as an option, no stores sell 2nd hand PC games and the online market for them is limited to ebay.

NunianVonFuch

7 years ago

I think the main problem is that steam activation is easily hacked so will make no difference to the bottom line and only serve to prevent a number of customers from buying the game due to the Internet connection requirement. These people's only solution will be to pirate the game to a disc and use that to install on their computer thus reducing potential sales rather than increasing them.Why would this make a pirate purchase the game? They never address that!
