Katolu: doglover: There needs to be more medieval FPS stuff. Recreate the Fall of Rome or something like that. Crossbows and swords and slings and daggers....

Ahhhh, Heretic. I loved that game.

TF2 has some fun medieval maps.

I just watched the video in  our clip.  They want to make him "not another goth," but they put him in skin-tight leather, give him styled black hair under a hood, a sickly complexion, and eyeliner.  So they made him "not just another goth," but instead into the Uber-goth.  Goth-Prime, if you will.

Alphax: There was a game about 10-12 years back, called Rune.. was a FPS where you were a viking.. so, mostly melee weapons, some throwing of weapons.  I never bought the full version, but the demo had online deathmatch.. was fun for a bit.

Witchhaven thread?

Actually, no.  Let's not go there.

log_jammin: My son plays CoD a lot. I tried to get into the World at War one, but the whole "hide for a minute to regain health" thing was a bit much for me. That and the way it jumped between stories annoyed me.

But anyway, one thing I've noticed, and I don't know if it's him, the way the game plays, or if I just play FPS differently, but he always runs from place to place, turning and shooting without really looking. when I play games like that I always go slow and try to peak around corners, take careful aim, etc.. I just get the feeling that CoD encourages/rewards the way he plays. maybe, I don't know.

That's pretty much why I gave up on CoD (MW3).  One time I was doing a group game, sniping targets... and one of my own teammates kept hunting me down and shooting me in the back of the head, because he wanted me to run around in the open like a farking retard.

I have Borderlands 2 now, and haven't looked back.

I don't get why CoD is so popular.  The single player games are fun, but not worth $60.  The last 3 titles (BOPS 1 and 2, MW3) have serious lag issues.  MW2 got taken over by cheaters so I can't go back to that.

Seriously.  What's most important to you in a multiplayer FPS:  1) your skill; 2) strategy  3) tactics  4) teamwork.  If you answered 1-4 then CoD isn't for you because the number 1 factor is lag.  If you're on the wrong end of the lag curve (which I seem to always be) then your hosed no matter what.

/ Didn't get BOP2
// Forums are full of people biatching about lag, I got Borderlands 2 instead.
