Sorry but the beta gameplay looked horrible and boring. Never trust the trailers. :>

 

 

Man, I really want a *good* tactical FPS game again... singleplayer and coop. Like SWAT, just even better... meh.

as soon as the nato allies develop long-range rust detection, the russian air and sea power threats evaporate.

 

HA! Good Fun!

Assuming that simulator is well made, anyway.

apparently, the multiplayer portion will be free forever

Let's Play The Temple of Elemental Evil (Complete)
Let's Play Neverwinter Nights and Hordes of the Underdark

Let's Play Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn

I was struggling to understand ths until I noticed you are from Finland. And having been educated solely by mkreku in this respect I am convinced that Finland essentially IS the wh40k universe.

there is discussions on that matter in the article body as well as the feedback that follows. 

 

is non-classified and it is simulation, so one should take with a grain o' salt.  even so, given the limits o' such things, the simulator in question appears less subject to bias than most and clear more advanced than harpoon.

 

HA! Good Fun!

Not bad for EA, and a good move for those who enjoy the DA:I multiplayer aspect. But that move also makes me believe that it´s not a very successful aspect of the game. I tried it, and it came across as a useless tacked on mode, one i certainly don´t enjoy or need.

Wouldn't surprise me. Personally I didn't even try it, just like I ignored it in ME3, my stance on it is that they could have used the money wasted on those multiplayer modes to give the single player campaign some much needed extra love in both games.

 

Because, seriously, who bought ME3 or DA:I for the multiplayer? Nobody *I* know for sure... (though my sister did enjoy ME3 MP, pretty sure she'd have gladly traded it for a better SP experience)

Stupid question : how is that F-35 program seen in the USA? I read a rather long article in a French magazine a few months back which painted an absolutely horrible picture : completely over budget, horribly inefficient, software was ****ed up, cannons weren't working, ordinance capacity were ridiculously low, stealth was a scam, it couldn't get within 25 kilometers of a lightning storm lest it catches on fire, it couldn't dream of performing as well as the planes it was supposed to replace and it had become obsolete for the new kind of war that the USA started fighting after 9/11.

Exactly, who really bought ME3 or DA:I for the multiplayer? I can´t show you one person. It would have been better  spend to focus more on core elements for the single player experience. I tried it, and it wasn´t worth it. The idea in ME3 was good too, but that could have been a different game. It´s just money wasted. They should have better used the money to extend the release of ME3 and give it an ending. :x

ME3 multiplayer was apparently successful, financially, and that is what counts for EA. Don't know about DAI's multiplayer, it probably doesn't cost much of anything to actually run so long as they've gone to a sensible approach to servers and use the same servers for all games on an 'on demand' basis.

 

It isn't about people buying the game for MP, it is about them buying value added stuff for/ due to the MP.

Well sure people bought the packs and eveything..but it wasn´t long around, so it couldn´t be that successful? But maybe you are right, in the sense that they knew it would not last long and it was just a quick buck for a few months/a year and then gone? This is all speculation of course. But if it would have been a real success ME3 MP would be up and runing. Which it isnt, and that decision would have never happend with DA:I, which was faster than in ME (before they released most of the stuff).

 

I´m not sure. It´s all specualtion anways, but i doubt EA would do anything for their customers for a good will...they sure as hell not...so DA:I MP has no players, not a surprise.

This is the same company that released an extended ending for ME3 free of charge.  Of course it isn't simply an act of goodwill, they are running a business, but it is in their best interest to keep the majority of their customer base happy.  Weighing that against cost and profit is obviously important, they want to stay in business.

I thought the extended ending was still pretty lame. Didn't they kept the silly colors and just added a bunch of ending slides that (again) don't really change?

It fleshed it out a bit, at least taking away the whole 'trapped on the planet' ending.  It's still pretty open to interpretation.

The F-35 program still receives fierce criticism to the US, most of it arguably ill-informed in the eyes of most in the know. This is criticism borne out of a well-meaning attitude that in an environment in which a peer or near-peer power is no longer an imminent threat to the US, its allies, or its interests, such programs seem rather "extravagant." However, I would argue that there is importance in the deterrence value these programs provide (even disregarding the US nuclear arsenal, which I _do_ think is largely extraneous, countries like Iran and North Korea wouldn't dream of doing anything drastic because they know the conventional forces of the US and its coalition partners would put the kibosh on that), and since the US depends on an all-volunteer force for its military, our defence tax dollars should be dedicated to making sure our men and women in uniform have the best equipment at their disposal.

They didn't exactly have plans to release the extended endings until the huge backlash from fans was so great that even media started to pick up on the controversial endings.  I mean, yeah, they did it for free.  But it was entirely a damage control/reputation thing.

 

Maybe I'm reading your post wrong, but you sound like they're praising them for giving their fans free DLC because it was a business strategy from the start, sort of like CDPR's giving away new DLC each week was a business strategy from the start, not just tacked on after the game released because their rep took a massive hit.  If there wasn't the same sort of anger or backlash, they had zero plans to even make the extended endings.

I'm not praising or vilifying them.  They are just a video game company.  My post was in response to this:

 

 

I´m not sure. It´s all specualtion anways, but i doubt EA would do anything for their customers for a good will...they sure as hell not...so DA:I MP has no players, not a surprise.

 

 

I'm simply saying that, when it makes good business sense, they have no problem releasing free content.

 

 

As an aside, how is the DLC that CDPR is releasing any different than the multiplayer that EA is releasing?  They are both free, they both require infrastructure to maintain.  I believe you can still make purchases for the DA multiplayer though, which would seem to be a wiser business decision, but I am sure some will see as avarice.   :shrugz:

the F-35 was designed to do too much for too many and it's performance is lacking in all roles.

the vertical flight needs shorter wings and that means less manueverability in a dogfight and less stability in low and slow CAS missions

the stealth system requires ALL weapons to be in internal bays or it wont work at all but the VTOL system takes too much space so the amount of space for ordinance is very limited

the stealth system (according to the F-16 designer) can only fool american radars. according to rumors, british radars could pick up all stealth aircraft over Iraq by tracking the IR heat signature and US officials were regularly going there to delete the data

The words freedom and liberty, are diminishing the true meaning of the abstract concept they try to explain. The true nature of freedom is such, that the human mind is unable to comprehend it, so we make a cage and name it freedom in order to give a tangible meaning to what we dont understand, just as our ancestors made gods like Thor or Zeus to explain thunder.
