Wow, those seem to be pretty good faces on the guys on brothers in arms, but I haven't played any of the newer FPS games.

I saw that one in PC Gamer. It looked interesting.

No, its not the same one. Own Goal.

No, its different, but it is another WWII game.

Only played a little of the tutorial, so far, I managed to kill the drill instructor on the hand grande range, by hitting him with machine gun fire at close range.

Did he jump up, tear your eyes out and skull-fuck you?

I downloaded th demo of Soldiers, but as far as I can make out, it doesn't have a fps modus.

That one's an RTS, isn't it? They did mention you could get down to single unit control, but they didn't really claim it was first person view, IIRC.

What I'm trying to say is that even at the finest level of control, you're issuing orders, not pulling the trigger. If I'm remembering the right game.

I was controlling the guy, its third person, but you can also take over tanks, capture enemy weapons and such.

21-07-2004, 23:33:52
So, it's like Dungeon Keeper in being able to take over any of your units? If the RTS is built for RTS play, then you will generally be better off ignoring doing that, wouldn't you? That's how all the RTS games I've played worked out. If the RTS was designed well, possessing a unit was bad. If it was designed poorly, it was required to succeed.

Damnit, that demo of Soldiers is stupid. I have no idea how most the controls work. I had one guy sneak up behind the Tiger, carrying all sorts of weapons, but then couldn't get him to throw anything else then a handgranade.

Guess you are not cut out to be a hero!

23-07-2004, 14:22:13
If I knew how the controls worked, I just might.

You can switch weapons by clicking the backpack.

And never select "Dutch Army" again

I thought the album sucked as did all of Dire Straits material

26-07-2004, 22:26:37
