  1. Weapon Skins found on Steam Database

    So, the game is going to be £12/$15. Once the game is released, how do you want your future content delivered? New maps and potentially new factions - would you want those in separate paid DLC packages, which then segregate the community into smaller slices? If you want the game to be around long term, probably not. To help keep a healthy playerbase, adding new DLC needs to be available to everyone who has the game. Adding in cosmetic lootboxes allows the developer to make money to fund these future DLCs. It's purely cosmetic and people can choose to spend further money on them if they wish. This 'redundant' feature allows the game to have a longer lifespan bring more content to the whole playerbase, without releasing a sequel year on year with a season pass and all that current day bullshit with most AAA FPS series.
  2. No Key Received

    How dare you be helpful. Have an upvote
  3. What keyboard do you have?

    After years of my Roccat Ryos (posted earlier in the thread) I decided for a change a few months back and got the Ducky Shine 6 w/ Speed silver switches. Going from black switches to speed silver was quite the change but I have to say I love it now.
  4. What about "lean on" while walking?

    Thanks for the nostalgia trip with all those familiar names in those 2 vids, espescially the first. As a former MoH:AA addict, I have to agree, that leaning like that has no place in a game any more. Idd. Clipping was leaving only a tiny fraction of your player model visible. Then there was self speccing was being able to see around a left hand corner without being visible. The good old days. The game had so many massive flaws yet it just worked.
  5. Nobody thinks that but thanks for telling us what we think. I'll do the same for you. What I think is you totally missed the point of this game, had your own idea of what it was supposed to be and that didn't line up at all with all the information presented to us thus far. Also that paragraph I quoted from you is a tad hypocritical. Read it back, read the responses and then see who sounds like the salty 17 year old. Take a look at the link below, this is probably more suited to your requirements and I genuinely hope you find it enjoyable. https://www.hellletloose.com/ Signed, a pissed off person who is fed up of people's inability to assimilate information.
  6. Destiny 2 on PC

    Sorry but that update doesn't do it for me, really. A lot hinges on the masterworks rework. I'm glad stuff is coming out of Eververse, but it's still all cosmetic useless fluff that doesn't develop your character in any meaningful way. It's progress but all of that is probably going to take the best part of a year to be implemented and even then I don't think we'll have reached anywhere near D1 TTK (it's peak for me). So it's still regression. It's going to take months just to put in text chat for clans on PC (outside of The Tower).
  7. Sup?

    Welcome wiZZ
  8. As long as you'd have regretted the post even if you were still without a key. Still, nice one on admitting the mistake and have fun in game.
  9. MoH:AA and Diablo 2. I can't imagine how many thousands of hours I spent in both of those when I was younger.
  10. Any MOH: Spearhead or AA guys here?

    2 thumbs up. Path/dir screens or conflict!! Haha...the good old days. Battalion will be bringing some of those feels back
  11. Any MOH: Spearhead or AA guys here?

    Think I played against a handful of them on CB when I was in a clan called CHU. I'd totally forgotten about most of those names from that long ago haha. SirHagi, PrinceY and d4rky are the ones I recognise. I have a feeling this game will bring back a fair amount of familiar people, although a lot like me have changed the name they use since all the way back then!
  12. Destiny 2 on PC

    Another Bungie classic. Cap in hand saying they will fix issues which should never have been in the game to try and keep people quiet until the next debacle. Prometheus Lens also now nerfed into the ground. It was OP and needed nerfing but it's like certain aspects of their game just don't get a single pass of testing. In general, it's so frustrating because this game feels so good to play. Gunplay/movement/sounds/animations are all top notch but just so many chunks of the game aren't there. Masterworks is a start towards something to chase but the added stats pool is pretty small and simplistic and it won't take people long to get the masterworks version of the weapon they want. It also pisses me off that they devolved the class system. You essentially have 2 builds per archetype and as someone who has played and loved a lot of RPGs for many many years, to see them go backwards instead of forwards on this front is so disappointing. I'm not looking for Path of Exile levels of depth on class mechanics but sequels generally evolve a game not devolve it. Also whilst I'm ranting slightly, why can't I use text chat to communicate with clan mates in game on PC?! This is an utter joke in 2017. A few of us tried to get a clan going only to find out you have to communicate using a chat box on the Bungie site or force people to use an external program like discord, which I'm fine with but trying to get people to use something they don't want to or aren't used to is quite the struggle. Needless to say we gave up bothering trying to run our own clan.
  13. Just the wording I think. This weekend is for Alpha plus Beta backers. Early Access backers soon™. By the looks of it Early Access will be mid Jan, (hopefully) shortly after their announcement trailer on the 9th goes live. Edit - To add to that. I believe the reasoning for Beta backers to be in this 'Alpha' is because the game will go to Early Access mid Jan and there won't be a specific 'Closed Beta'. Just my own speculation, though.
  14. This game has come so far in a relatively short period of time. Keep it up guys.
  15. Any MOH: Spearhead or AA guys here?

    Welcome Lucaat ex MoH:AA (not SH) addict here. This game will bring back some of those old school feels!
  16. Hello!

    Welcome Caffers ex CoD2 player here. There's loads of us about!
  17. Destiny 2 on PC

    I also played Destiny for a couple of years, from launch. It's not an excuse for the shallow content of Destiny 2, but Destiny 1 was also baron, broken, torn apart and sown back up again at launch and wasn't ever really "fixed" until TTK. I expect a similar path for Destiny 2, mainly focusing on the depth of their content. People complained about the grind in Destiny (forever 29). Destiny 2 has taken it all away and now people are complaining there is no grind. I'm sure it will be addressed. It's just how long it takes to do so. I played the beta on PC and the port was one of the best I've experienced and it ran so well and was full of options. At the end of the day Destiny 2 will be a casual game you drop in and out of, coming back when new content comes out.
  18. What games do you currently play?

    My ARPG addiction is mainly keeping me going atm. Path of Exile, Path of Diablo (Diablo 2 mod) & there's a Grim Dawn expansion in a couple of days. I'll play Destiny 2 as well at the end of the month for some casual shooty shooty space magic fun. Still playing some PUBG but waiting for features/content to be implemented on that mostly. It's wound down from playing that in all my spare time to maybe a game or two here & there.
  19. My not so brief FPS history

    Welcome aboard. We started gaming online around the same time and I played all the great games you listed, along with many others here. Here's hoping Battalion brings back some of those old school feelings .
  20. Rifle Balance

    OMG they're not all using bolt action rifles, this must be some extreme photoshop skillz. Above is a great example of why rifles didn't dominate and why not everyone used them. Shock, horror - most guns had their own strengths and weaknesses and shone in certain areas/within certain tactics.

  23. An interview with phantasy!

    Noice. Enjoying these in-depth interviews you're doing @DustMouret. Few little bits of info you managed to draw out as well, good stuff :D.
