>Is RTS a dead genre?
Wonky on consoles, so ded.
aom>aoe any time of the day. aoe is such a shit game competetively, it's either crossbow+catapult spam or fucking galleys, nothing else.
Fucking love that game so much, it makes all RTS's look like complete shit tbh
why are people this mad at this

They fixed a ton of multiplayer issues and the game is smoother than before. I often play with 3 friends against 4 AI and we never encounter lag.

Hell, even THE PROGRESS BAR is finally going percent per percent from now on, something that never happened since 1999.

Of course if you are located too far from your buddies you will lag like shit, it's not intended for Slav players to have fun with Spanish people.
That goes for every genre.

Around 2004-2007 the videogame market exploded and with going mainstream the focus shifted from making good games that appeal to the dedicated audience to cheap (to develop) yearly rehash that sells to the mainstream crowd.

Why invest money into the next generation of RTS autism when you can cut your budget half to use the rest for advertising and mainstream retards still buy it?

9 Brave Employees come forward exposing the entire thing was a scam with all focus on raising more money instead of making a game. Derek Smart, a veteran game developer, also uncovered the disgusting scam.

According to several sources, being an employee of Cloud Imperium Games meant subjecting yourself to public insults, screaming, profanity, racism, and stress so powerful that some people would become physically ill.

The thing I noticed when I started was that we were making commercials. We weren't making a game," CS2 said. "It was all about what was on the screen behind [Roberts] during the presentation."
"A lot of people would be like "Where's the game? When is this going to turn into a game?" CS3 added. "It was all about making pretty spaceships and brochures and commercials and hiring big name Hollywood actors to do voice-overs for the commercials. We were never working on a game."

"We were always building towards the next event," CS4 stated. "It wasn't about making a game. it was about a flashy demo for Gamescom, or PAX, or the next commercial. It never felt like they were trying to make a game, as much as digital spaceships to sell."
CS2 said. "With [Roberts], it would be, like, 'look at these beautiful renders of characters, and of this spaceship.' But none of it was real. He shows some artwork, and then people project what their experience is going to be. Like the back of a book."

Chris Roberts and Sandi Gardiner are financially independent, they will get a share of the profits the game makes after being developed and get paid their living/traveling expenses for their work probably

Every time there was a forum post the mods would deny and shut it down. Sounds like they were trying to hide it.

And be real. The reason it made $90mil is because it is Chris Roberts.

Some autist keeps reposting it, I don't understand how the mods are inept. But the facts proposed are still true.,

space combat in Battlefront 2 was nothing more than air combat only with a different skybox and more repetitive maps than conquest

If they ever do it, they better step it up to Free Radical levels of stepping up

Ammo packs are vital in longer engagements, so is medic's revive, but you don't see that in pubs. Recons are kinda useless though, since they gave support the C4s. I guess tracking the tracking shit is neat if you have a dedictated javelin team, but you wont see that in pubs ever.
Actually it's pretty normal. Remember that EA has been officially named THE WORST COMPANY ON EARTH like 4 years in a row.
It was 2 last time I heard, we can definitely shoot for 4 though.

Yeah that's bullshit, I noticed my FOB has that too.
Not sure if selling your 3 will move the FOB ones into your empty base.
Try it though.
MGO3 is the fastest of them all. Sometimes I wish it could go a little slower. Perhaps if respawn time was something greater than one second. I dunno.

Liking it tho. Matches go fast and I haven't felt bored.

MGO2 GG was the shit and nothing will ever compare to it.
Basic as all hell, everyone's defending the games 5 maps & 3 modes saying it will get more maps & game modes in the future but I personally think it will be paid content which will divide the already sparse community and completely kill the game.
gotta have the CoD:BF seriousness brah
Is that Crispin Freeman in voice 1? It's completely neutered from his voice in GOBs, let alone his awesome MGO2 codecs.

it wasn't intentionally bad they just made up a lot of new mechanics and not all of it worked
The one thing you can say for Final Fantasy is that at least every game has radically different mechanics from any of the others.

Whatever you say, babby
It spawned the SaGa series, which turned out better than what Final Fantasy ended up. I'd say that it turned out alright in the end.
I for one really enjoyed the 2nd game. Had a great story and the levelling system seems logical until you realise you can attack yourself. Just have some self control and don't do that if you want to use it as intended.

Any one else pick this up? Thoughts?
One of the best remasters this gen, in my opinion, considering it's not just a port of one game for full price like all the others. And I've never beaten an Uncharted game yet, so there's that too.

Yeah, Chivalry is a lot of fun, but I can only see it has a hollow shell now that I've War of the Roses.

Despite microtransactions and everything that feels off about this game, I think it deserves a lot more attention.

Fatshark abandoned this shit and left it in a broken state

Devs practically abandoned it for War of the Vikings.
They split the already declining community, servers emptied out and now only a few people who are die hard players play the thing.

if it went full mount & blade and had a singleplayer campaign mode it would've been GOAT, but nah man everything's gotta be hardcore competitive multiplayer filled with micro-transactions these days.
Fatshark were a bunch of faggots that didn't fix the glitches or deal with hackers, continue to milk the game for all its worth with microtransactions and then release War of the Vikings which is a dumbed down and stripped down version of War of the Roses with no cavalry, no crossbows, less armour customization and less customization in general.

Fuck Fatshark, War of the Roses deserves better than what it got.

Fuck man, if they made War of the Roses essentially a Mount & Blade Warband clone it would have been the best. But it ended up concentrating on the multiplayer which lacked a lot of maps and the objective based gameplay of Chivalry.

I reckon it's gonna start somewhen while Flynn is busy filling the chalice via sidequests, which is why the dome is still present, but after the first act Flynn will remove the dome and the rest of the game will be under an open sky

That doesn't make him any less deserving with what characters can qualify, especially considering Gamefreak's Lightning and shit like Bowser Jr. and Dr. Mario are in to begin with, one being a clone and either one being garbage representatives, especially with that little shit spawn basically stealing what could have been Eggman's gimmick if Sonic ever got another character that wasn't fucking Tails or Shadow. The main reason I want him besides having good potential for a figher and being a Kirby character is that I know even a faggot like Sakurai's become can't fuck him up considering he's most known for jabbing, throwing, powering up and charging and spinning his spear like a copter to fly (hell, he literally already has specials covered) unlike the risk either Issac or King K. Rool faces knowing Sakurai's fuck ups with Fire Emblem and heavies. They could copypaste his moveset from RtDL and it'd still be more fun than a lot of shitty bland movesets there are, Samus being the biggest offender with how shit and boring she's been since day one. She's weak and none of her attacks are even satisfying to land. No "impact" with bombs, missiles or even a proper charge shot, which is just a shitty ball. No Speed Boost, Power Bombs or beams altogether.
It's pretty autistic how fans bitch about not being able to play as characters just because they could in previous games but can't anymore.
>I don't want the actual known indie character to get a place instead of my literally who fap bait
I want Hector but he is really unlikely, now that Roy came out and probably even before.
I want an interesting Nintendo character who actually fights in the games they appear in and also isn't heavily focused on projectiles, like so many awful Smash 4 newcomers
