Right now, I believe the "514" number of Dust 514 is significant somehow to the game. In 50 years, Call of Duty 514 will simply mean the 514th sequel.
Metro last light have hardest difficulty in the game but you have to pay 5$ to unlock it . Hardest difficulty (Ranger Mode) is DLC in Metro Last Light . Free for those who pre ordered , this is bullshit .
As an Eve player, I hope you guys like Dust and come join us in New Eden. Just remember that Dust is not meant to compete with CoD's instant gratification, but more the slower pace of an MMO. The point is to fight 'for something' rather than meaningless arena fights. Become part of a persistent world rather than a universe made of a dozen maps.
Nope, my next game purchase is in early June, I think. Unless Deadpool comes first, but I want to see gameplay footage before I buy that one.
hahaha, @TomMcShea is awesome :)
I'm not sure yet, I might pick up Game Dev Tycoon if I can. There is very little of interest for me.
I can't believe I agree with Tom McShea about Bladewolf's description, it was bad whoever wrote that needs to get sliced up by the wolf!!!!! Still Bladewolf for me :D
I wasn't impressed with the Dust 514 beta (or whatever it was) for the PS3. I'm eager to read the review/s for it.
Damn i had no idea Sanctum 2 was coming out already. Might pick that one up.
FYI, there's a free weekend of Sanctum 1 right now on Steam for anyone curious about it. It's a fun game.
only thing that looks even remotely interesting is Metro: LL, though i'll be waiting for some reviews on that first.
@93ChevyNut I'm sure they'll have milked the CoD fan boys alot more times than 514 times.
@smtgfx lol thats cool the girl behind the dog with 10+ arms is stupid
@TheLamaKnows Dust 514 is ok, 90% of the time its broke though. I have to go back after launch and see if its better.
@slimskelter I can't even get mine to work.
Dust... total garbage.
@samus_my_life He was talking about his own bad pun ;)
@Ryuuken27 How would you know, you havent played them? Is it because they are games and from a genre that arent on you system? Enjoy your robot doggy DLC then. :lol:
Every popular game genre and franchise you play today is derived from the PC, and every one of them bastardised and casualised for your weak control method and your weak system.
Thankfully we have new dev teams arriving all the time to the PC scene and these devs bring us something new and innovating. While you are playing COD9, ill be playing The Forest, while you are playing HALO 5 ill be playing Star Citizen.
Maybe 5 years from now you will have games like Anomaly 2 on your system and it wont be awful any more. Just like Diablo 3 how it was awful until it was announced for PS3 and now its good all of a sudden, just like The Witcher 2 how it was meh, until it was announced for 360. Just like Minecraft how that too was awful until it appeared on XBOX live.
All the best games on consoles right now are PC games. Enjoy them while they last because Apple is taking over your console gaming.
@shingui5 Metro last light have hardest difficulty in the game but you have to pay 5$ to unlock it . Hardest difficulty (Ranger Mode) is DLC in Metro Last Light . Free for those who pre ordered , this is bullshit .
@shingui5 true... I'm optimistic and that's hard to be with games these days. :)
@GOGOHeadray I played it. It wasn't that great, it's just a straight up shooter. There is a better one free to play on steam. I guess the ps3 doesn't have that many online shooters, so it's the worse of two evils.
@kargion @TheLamaKnows Dust isn't going to compete with instant rewards just for being there like CoD or BF. It is not based on single, stand alone (and meaningless) battles. You are working towards a real goal, not just some new outfit to wear. I think some FPS players are looking for more than brainless shoot em ups like CoD. Dust gives you something to fight for. But like Eve, it isn't for everyone. New Eden is a brutal place to live.
I will say that no other game developer is like CCP. They are incredibly active with the player base, we have an elected council to talk directly to them. They spend a lot of time on the forums interacting directly with players. Give Dust a bit of time to work out the kinks, and I promise CCP will obsessively improve on it. Half the reason people stick with Eve is simply because CCP is so actively involved with players.
Just hope you FPS guys enjoy. Eve players have been looking forward to having you join us. Dust is literally a game changer for both the FPS genre, and Eve Online.
@bimastrike871 But in battlefield you can't own planets and steal other players planets! :P
@SirSanchezii @Kevin-V @Janpieterzun @slimskelter Nah, i've been playing dust 514 for 3 months now and the patch they introduced on the 6th horribly broke the game, Assault rifles with 100 meter range, HMGs that barely shoot across the street, laser rifles that blind you and such a an SP gulf that 90% of your time is spent getting slaughtered by guys in proto suits with top end gear and wondering why your AR is less powerful than a BB gun.
EvE Online (PC) and Dust 514 (PS3) have direct interaction between the two. Player actions in one game effect the political and economic status of the other.
The game might seem like any other FPS games such as CoD or BF. But, the difference on this one is what I explained above. This game encourages you to be in a corp, or your own corp (either a corp on EvE or Dust) and form a squad to communicate. This is not for someone that wants a quick game like CoD, but this game requires communication which is a must! Which requires strategy and military tactics as well. Don't forget, you can get some help from above in SPACE! Orbital strikes that you call in from a Dust player to a EvE player.
Each player on dust including EvE have the same Skill Point system. Each one UNIQUE to a player that focus on a role you choose. (eg. on dust. Assualt, Scout, Heavy, and Logistics) here is a link you can visit on more detail on these roles. http://www.ign.com/wikis/dust-514/Dropsuit_Classes
I like this game very much because one it's CCP! Fucking damn good programmers and CCP doesn't rape you in the ass like other Horrific publishers. You know who I'm talking about.
It's free to play, and the official release is 5/14 which is this Tuesday. There is gonna be a big update for EvE Online as well, where there be bigger and more wars to fight in. Give it a chance like you give those games like CoD. You don't have to pay anything, but requires you not be a complete idiot in the game, AND ACTUALLY REQUIRES YOU TO THINK.
