Combat Arms another free FPS shooter
« on: December 20, 2008, 06:33:50 PM »
Nexon has just made the European version of Combat Arms available and I can say that I am having a blast blasting through the ranks of my enemies in it. I even made a small video. So if anyone of you guys here on DC from europe wanna play just reply here

Count me in. I will give it a try (downloading now) and see will it break my UrbanTerror or PRISM addiction  :)

Edited:
There is no way for me playing that :(

You’ll need a Nexon Passport ID to play Combat Arms.

Their registration form needs:
1. too much personal info,
2. clicking on "Check" button for too many fields before submit,
3. writing multiple times the same data because when you leave some field and want to come back, clicking on it clears the content.

I have never seen more annoying registration form...

PRISM? Haven't heard of it. Mind giving a link?

edit: Is this the game you were talking about?

"Good" bad or "bad" bad?

I'm also going to say no to Combat Arms (and PRISM) due to the fact that I don't have any desire to play another generic military "kill-em-up" game.

Me neither but PRISM is a pit stop for me in the quest for nice FPS co-op game. For carnage I've already have UT.

Have you tried Left 4 Dead? It's a pretty brilliant co-op fps game.

I had only read about it and got a feeling that this is too much carnage for me. Additionally it requires Steam accounts and magic tricks to pay for that (half of the team lives in Poland). On the other hand: I have mixed feelings about Steam itself since I own OrangeBox. The best option would be just go to the shop and buy a game or simple download.

The cost of such play is important, so I am limited to older games or free ones.

I would really like to find something with cooperation level similar to Splinter Cell's or playability of Gears of Wars. Unfortunately, most of the games offers too much shooting madness or no story at all. Also some of them seems to be nice until I realize they are just annoying (ex. Americas Army).

The other pair of boots is requirements limit because I have to keep in mind 4 different PCs configurations (friends).

PS. Each friend's taste had been first important thing and that is why FPS was chosen.

Well, I know that Rainbow Six Vegas 2 is a great coop game if you can get it at a cheap price

That one does indeed look fun, but the cost is a bit prohibitive at the moment. Probably by the time I get it, nobody will be playing it anymore. :(

I've been playing CA for about 6 months or so, maybe a little longer. It's alright... IMO its the new WarRock (and if you want to know why I don't play WarRock anymore...). It's headed in that direction, but it is much better - I'll give it that. Didn't hold my attention like WR though (no vehicles).

Why WarRock sucks (long list):
Spoiler
  • It was great in closed and open beta (it was a BLAST in closed beta!)
  • The bugs were fun before the hackers came in
  • Everyone with a mic hasn't hit puberty yet (this was with TS, Vent, and there was an in-game voice for a while... dunno if it still exists)
  • The sounds are redundant
  • Its $15 a month for a premium membership that's worth anything. That's the same as WoW. "Wow", what a RIP.
  • The guns are sub-par, unless you have the hign end OMGWTFIRTEHPWNZ11111 guns
  • The graphics SUCK. OMG! It was actually WAY higher quality in the early betas, but I guess they "sh*tified" the graphics so that more people on their 500MHz 64MB machines (no offense to those of you @ DC) could play.
  • The lag is wayyyyyy too much. Its FPS and latency. And it makes no sense - the physics engine is 5/10 at best, and the graphics are... see above.
  • The website hasn't changed appearance in 2 years. Wtf?
  • The signup process is annoying.
  • You can't lock rooms (mini servers) unless your a premium member (silver or Gold only, I believe). Uhh... what???
  • You can't use the good guns unless your a premium member

Personal grudge: I was a HUGE fan of WR. I went out and got the preorder box at Best Buy for $25. First of all: No dogtags (all boxes were promised to have them, this store had NONE). Ok... thats fine then. I get home, login to the website, go to enter my code - the freaking pre-order expired the DAY BEFORE, yet they still sell the damn boxes - don't regard my email requests for help, or even reply. I got the gun I wanted too (special pre-order only guns that stayed with you permanently, rather than being prem+buying them every week). Can't return it - its an open box tech item! FU*KERS!! </rant>


Call me over-specific, Crysis loving, everything-has-to-be-perfect nutjob, but I like my games to be polished, pretty, and playable. CA delivers, (graphics could/should be better) but more arcadey than I'm into. WR does too (minus the pretty part), if you could manage to get a private server with a few friends. As long as CA doesn't get WR's hackers, it will remain on my hard drive. :)
