The 2nd lab has begun! The experimental gametype is shotguns and pistoles ONLY. No grenades No other weapons (including power weapons) Shields So get ready for some close quarters carnage!
Damn it, I barely got to play Week 1 of the Lab and I was enjoying it so much. 2 on 2 was really fun and it was over before I could even get a chance to get into my groove. I'm not excited for shotguns and pistoles that much, I swear there is such a big lock-on for these two weapons. Still going to try it though, but personally, I can't wait for week 3: Snipers only Elimination!
as someone who has been playing UC2 since the beta, I have to say this (even thou no one is ordering me to play this playlist): up yours ND MP department You're purposely making playlist for powerwhores (this is bad because this says that they're okay with people overusing the strongest weapons whiyh kill as soon as you get near a person and that's really easy, as it wasn't bad enough)
Well everybody has access to the shotguns and pistoles. And last week wasn't a powerhouse mode. I like this idea, I'm sure they borrowed it from Bungie who has Double XP weekends with unique playlists every other week. It's too bad though, that UC2 isn't a bigger MP game. It's really fun, and I wish Sony advertised the online too. A lot of people got upset with that stupid health patch where they made the weapons more powerful (or decreased the health or something), and I reckon a lot of hardcore players quit because of that. But the game is still fun, and this is a good way to add some spice to it.
I wished that the Mp had a bigger community cause it is really fun to play but the powerwhores ruin a lot for me, cause running around into people isn't really a skill...
I don't mind the power weapons, you are supposed to run around and get them to control the game and they are balanced where everyone has access to them. There are different strategies too. For example, go after the Grenade Launcher straight down the middle or, go for the Deagle on the high-ground to get a better view, go for the GAU tucked away in the back, etc. If UC2 had a bigger community we could see more custom games and community options like in Halo. Sadly, it doesn't have that big of a community. This is the one time I care about sales where it affects me personally. However, ND needs some help with sustaining a MP game anyway. The game is solid, but the way they've supported it isn't.
If you're worried about taking less damage and dying quicker, then I would say that those players are the furthest thing from "hardcore". I'm glad those pussys left.
all day everyday
we have to remember games are about having fun and enjoying yourself, not really about skill. I like this cause guess why......it's gonna be fun! :P
Going to try this right now. At least with shotguns there will be a lot less campers.
Sounds like fun!
They need to try 2v2v2v2v2, that would make it more frantic and interesting. With just 2v2 there is a tendency to camp and it becomes a bit painful in plain 2v2 if the 2 teams are very mismatched in skills.
This is their 1st multiplayer game right? It's taken other companies years to figure this stuff out. I remember people MOANING about Multiplayer because it'll ruin the singleplayer What did we get? 2009 GOTY and a great multiplayer. Hopefully the next outing with retain multiplayer.
