Yea not exactly sure about the purpose of cloud gaming when you have to be tethered to WiFi. would be awesome if 4g wasn't so limited. I guess this could be cool when i travel around, but I have to leave my PC on in order to cloud game right? only time I'm far from home, is for more then a week at a time. What happens if my PC restarts itself or what not. I think its a fine idea, but the limitations of networking and all that hinders this device.
But I guess I cant really say too much with out having hands on first...
honestly just wait for it to come out on psn (SEN i think its called now) . with the release of the vita the digital release of the game is inevitable. not to mention its a much smoother experience playing psp games on the vita because of the updated hardware. I have my vita for 5 days already and its pretty schweet with psp games, not to mention you can add bilinear filtering for the extra eye candies. oh and another neat thing is you can map the analogue stick on the right since psp games dont really use it :)
Hey there guys just reaching out a little to the giant bomb community looking for a couple of potential viewers to help people with whatever questions they have about the game or whoever just wants to chat with the rest of us .
Just a little more info on the stream just for those curious. Critical Chocolate is my stream (and steam) name, I stream as a means to reach out to other gamers but also for people curious for art, I commentate for almost all my streams so I'm able to communicate with as many of my viewers as possible! Normally I like to play a variety of action games, alot of new titles and I'm always open for requests (going to be streaming the ps VITA content as well SSX this month hopefully).
At 3am EST (12am PST) I will be covering the launch of Studio 38s first release, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning(PC Origin copy). A fantasy style game brought to life by the great RA Salvatore, Todd Mcfarlane and Ken Rolston. I will be streaming for as long as possible and any and all are welcome to drop by!
16 hours have already been played(had to stop streaming last night because of twitch tvs stream before release rules) already and you can find those videos on my videos page on twitch TV I will be continuing from my current save unless. Now for the second half of this post....
As you may or may not know, there is an indie Mech game coming out soon called HAWKEN. This game was shown off at a couple of last years events and I half to say its looking pretty hot, but if you can't remember what it looks like or if you straight out dont know what it is I dug up one of the trailers from youtube
They have recently started recruiting for their beta phase and I've come to inform those who are not aware of it.
Here is my referral link. https://www.playhawken.com/?ref=gzhn1h7x Keep this in mind if you like though, this is my personal referral link which you will also receive one after you register for the beta. Once 3 people register with YOUR OWN personal link they will allow you to reserve your own callsign (in game name) so feel free to register with any friends ref link instead of mine or whatever you feel good with.
Any who guys thanks for the read, and hope to see some of you guys and gals tonight on the stream, and if not see y'all whenever the HAWKEN beta begins :D peace out~!
Could some one explain to me why people are upset about this not coming to steam. i don't get the tears. why is it a big deal
Dunno what the deal is, I've been using ORIGIN since the bf3 alpha and its shaping up to be quite nice really, I really like the ingame UI in comparison to steam and ORIGIN lets me fucking choose where I want to install my god damned games! (im lookin at chu steam)
On top of this i found something out, If you have a game on steam that is ea you can possibly activate it on your origin to and you wont need to re-download it, It will run the already installed copy that's in your steam folder ( I have recently been doing this with my digital copys of both Crysis 2 and Shift 2) .
The only thing right now about origin that doesn't compare but could work out in future is the current deals, and of course its current selection since its pretty much an EA only platform.
I don't mind having more then one program because I don't find it bothersome at all to log in else where to get my fix as long as what I'm using is not broken I'm totally cool with it.
does anyone think the new support class in BF3 is a bit weird…like without the med packs, i really can’t see me setting up shop camping with some bi-pod LMG and lasting very long. You die pretty quick if you stay in one spot on BFBC2….
you'd be surprised. When you fire at somebody it acts as suppressive fire, doesnt need to hit anything just needs to be in range of the person, it not only scores you points just for doing it while someone else nails the kill ( suppression assist ) but it also blurs the vision of whoevers recieving those shots.
If any class were to die alot for staying still it would be snipers this time round. While they sit there in their scopes a BRIGHT white light shines from it making them all the more visible. It only happens when your scoped so people will either have to learn to move or deal with losing alot.
@Ahmad_Metallic: Eh I dont mind the squad spawn stuff so much but yea Im glad they are tweaking that spotting mechanic, made the alpha way to easy to see anyone anywhere.
and I think that faction based weapons dont really affect much of my experience, I would much rather have a varience in control rather then asthetic, and I doubt they would like to unbalance the game that way unintentionally.
also the fun fact was not directed specifically for you, just for those curious :D
Just so happens that AK is an unlockable for I think engineer ( AK 74M or something) Starter weapons have faction based stuff. Recons for example, US uses a Mark 11 MOD 0 and insurgents or russian use a SVD
also there is no kill cam, that cam you see after he dies at the beginning is the 3rd person view of a fellow team mate.
How do I know you ask? I was in the alpha myself for a couple of weeks back. Sadly conquest and vehicle variety were not in the alpha testing I participated in, but its nice to see that choppers dont explode immediately on all sorts of impacts.
oh and heres a little fun fact incase you didnt know, which will also make nooby snipers lose even quicker now that theres no kill cam, when a sniper is looking through the scope they will shine like a flashlight due to the sniper scope glare, they need to be hella good at moving and hiding to be an efficient sniper and hopefully this will push people to play other classes and will not end up like COD or BC2 where recon/sniper rifles is the majority of the player count. Its tiring to see nobody pushing a point when it can be so simple to do and also so rewarding. Also a note for recon is that claymores are back but they arent godlike like they were in BF2, they are more like BF2142, they can be destroyed and evaded by crouching or going prone past them...... thank god.
