View Full Version : Anyone else getting a bad feeling about BG?

I dont know about the rest of you but I am starting to get the feeling this game is not going to be as awesome as I had anticipated. My doubts are coming through to the surface......I mean what kind of a demo gives a single mission and not even give you a single skirmish map to dink around with? I think its because the AI for the skirmish is going to suck just like force commanders. I dont think Lucasarts has the ability to make good AI or even average AI. I hope Ensembles people are making a serious overhaul to the AOK AIs constant and unsurprising script.

I just hope to all ends of the earth that they are not hiding something by ommiting the skirmish from the demo and I know its only a demo. For those of us who cannot devote the time for a multiplayer slugfest kinda have been jipped by lucasarts for not giving us a little taste of the skirmish.

Well the Demo might suck (still d/l) and the AI might suck, but I usually enjoy playing multiplayer above single player so AI is no biggy for me. If anything I like crappy AI, that way I can actually beat something :D

lol, although the AIs tactics are stupid and annoying.

I like the ages AI, but its kinda goofey with ganging up on you right from the start, and attacking and wandering around while you butcher them because they are going for your castle.....stupid things like that. But on the other end it can stomp your head into the pavement alot too. Multiplayer is no big deal to me as I have bad luck and get the jerks, rejects, people who wont chat during a game, quitters, and rude people who wont play with you unless you have had 8,000 hours of game time and can build a base in under three minutes and launch a huge attack at the same time, but my biggest turn off for multiplayer are traitors, those who sit by and watch you die because they think its funny or gang up on you with their friends just to get a quick kill. And I would love to play multiplayer but the nice people who have fun are far and few between.

AI will probably be about the same.

Why did they include one mission only? Think of the download size ... it is already 70 mb.

Also ... I think there is a way to skirmish single player ... I'll post it shortly if it works out. :)

I've come across thoughs types of people :( I just shrug'em off.
I'll play you when it comes out. remember though..I suck.
I'm sure many other people here will be happy to play you too :)
They included only one mission because they added multiplayer support

tell me about it, TIE! A lot of the people playing multi are stupid, well, BRATs(for lack of a better{or non-vulgar}word). IF i had the demo yet(%$^& 3%!!:mad: )I would comment on it, but with all the people saying bad things about it, I'm getting a very funny feeling....

Did anyone try hosting a multiplayer game and choosing the computer as your opponent? This is how you do single player in the Empire Earth demo.

Very interesting, I will try that when my freaking demo is downloaded.....oooohhhhhh 20%!!!! It also hard for me to find people in my area to play, I am from Minnesota, land of 10,000 fakes.....oops I mean lakes.

They didn't make the AI, Ensemble Studios did. You sound like myself at times, complaining about nonexisting problems because of insufficient background info. Oh well :D.

IF i had the demo yet(%$^& 3%!! )I would comment on it, but with all the people saying bad things about it, I'm getting a very funny feeling....

If people say they think it sucks, more people will think so -bad attitude spreads faster than you think.

An example: I bought TPM a long time ago. I was surrounded by bad reviews and guys saying it sucked. Any you know what? I loved it. So have your own opinion. Stand up for what you think is right, even if you're standing alone.

Okay, now people also have rights to say negative stuff about games, but it's not a wise move right now with the beta shipping. You're harming your own community here, IMHO..

Next time you cut someones text please be sure to put the whole thought with not just your ammunition.

I guess I have to spell it out for you Dagobahn, I did not say LA made the AI . I said I hoped Ensemble was making an overhaul of AOK AI. Do you remember Force Commander? Enough said on their AI attempts. Also I said in a later reply that I like AOK!!! I
I played 6 games of it last weekend.
Dont slam people for their opinions if you cannot remember what they said?

If it wasnt for people voicing negative thoughts we would have no country or rights of which you speak so highly of, next time pay attention in history class.
