Re: sin 2 a failure

I finished Half Life 2: Episode 1 in four hours, and it was four hours of solid awesome, the best 4 hours i've had in a first person shooter. It's amazing how much Valve improved upon the HL2 forumla...

Re: Gamespot review

First 5 hours of HL2 is far, far superior to Emergence. That would kinda like Day One, except for HL2.

Re: PATCH IS OUT!

This patch's "improvments" to the difficulty have done very little to ease my frustration and contempt (I too got chaingunners right after the mutant boss, motoko). When is Ritual gonna forget about...

Re: Props to the sound team

Couldn't agree more.
I too sat through the title music before beginning /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif. All the sound effects and and music in Sin Eps has been one of it's biggest strong points....

Re: There is something horribly wrong with your ga

Not all publishers are evil (but EA and Vivendi are spawned from Satan's rectum). Luckily the company i work for got bought out by THQ, and it has been a major boon for us.



Which makes me wonder...

Re: There is something horribly wrong with your ga

That's the problem with not being tied to a publisher. You don't have access to a large fully fledged QA team, so you can't test adequately.

Re: Important: To Those Having Trouble with Diffic

Good idea. You may hurt yourself with something requires thought. BTW, you've still got a little bit of Ritual's jizz on the side of your mouth

Re: Important: To Those Having Trouble with Diffic

Is that a fact? What makes it stand out from the rest? Could it be the HL2-esque use of physics? Could it be the totally uninspired weapons and enemies? Could it be the Doom 3 style GUis? Could it be...

Re: Important: To Those Having Trouble with Diffic

Oh really? Cause that's exactly what Sin Eps is right now, one of the most average first person shooters available. Albeit a tremendously unbalanced one.

Re: Bring Blades Voice Back Petition

Hehehe! That best desribes Blade /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

I'm not gonna bother signing. Online petitions do squat, and in this case it isn't all the necessary.

Re: Important: To Those Having Trouble with Diffic

I'm not all that optimistic about this patch. Just scrap this dynamic difficulty crap, it's too great of a wildcard to properly balance the game's experience. Just put in a normal set of skill...

Some more points i'd like to mention

-When you're simply sitting in the vehicle, it's alright for the player rotation to be linked to the vehicles's rotation, but when you're leaning out the window...

CoD1 on hardest skill is much better. It was challenging. There is a difference to challenging and frustratingly difficult. RE4 (my all time favourite game) was one game where the Pro mode was very...

Re: A rather disappointed and annoyed SiN fan

Yeah, exactly. I hope Ritual do address these issues, and address them for episode 1, rather than waiting for the next episode for improvments.

It's not hard all the time. It's inconsistant. You get into areas of about 10 guys coming at you at once, and with their perfect aim and xray vision. it gets really frustrating. I have managed to...

Re: What do you think about the first video?

Yep, i understand completely about weapon balancing and increasing the reload length, but i think the animation can be done much better for the same length of time. There is an example in serious sam...

Acctually, that's what sources tools are. HL1 tools with more features (to support the new features of the engine) but no improvments. UE3 tools not only have new features have gone through numerous...

Re: A new Elexis?

Yeah, that's EXACTLY what i thought of the original Elexis *shudder*. From what we saw of her in the newly released video, she looks so much better. She's acctually a woman now!
