Not a chance in hell. Two reasons:

First, because FPS get boring quick, plsu there are much better FPS game development company;s than CCP. I would never buy another CCP product outside of Eve.

Second, and more importantly, is that CCP is neglecting the one good thing they have ever done to try and develope the sad excuse for a game above. I will not support than endeavor.

Because they just work. People no longer have the patience to troubleshoot for every second game you buy and install.
Seriously, I can't remember the last time I had to troubleshoot a game, let alone "every second game". With the exception of trying to run a few older games under W7 and having to figure out what needs to be done to run a 7-year old game on a 1-year old OS, I don't think I've had to troubleshoot a game since installing Windows XP back in 2001. You might wanna upgrade from that 386 or MacClassic or whatever you're using :P



The point is not that it's incredibly difficult problems, I have no problems fixing them, worst case scenario there's a workaround at the first google hit.
However for many people this is too much work for some gameplay
What I originally replied to was "why do so many people have consoles", and this is what I was referring to. Computer games many times need fixes that many people get tired of, like the "making 7 year old game work on a 1 year old OS" you refered to. On a console, the game is either made for your console or it isn't.

I would anyhow say computer gaming offers alot more what with mods and all.

If dust has mouse and keyboard support? Sure thing I'll buy it. If it doesn't then I'll pass. But as the engine they licensed from unreal literally has mouse and keyboard support for consoles built in they can't possibly use the 'not enough time or resources to impliment it' excuse.

Also the ut3 engine seems to be capable of some truely fantastic visuals and game mechanics if this is any indication. But as to how well that potential gets used for dust we will see. Razz

Dust isn't for the people playing EVE. It's a halo/battlefield clone with a gimick that probably won't make it for very long.

Unless they somehow manage to make the eve-dust interaction amazing it's going to be hard to compete with an ordinary objective based fps when there's already more than enough of them out.

With the standards of console games been pushed higher and higher every year, to name a few Halo Reach, Crysis 2, FEAR 3, COD7... Notice how the companies and studios are FPS veterans, compared to ccp pushing out its first fps. If the trailer is any to go by (and the current standing EVE has with its players) then ccp's debut is going be the biggest flop on consoles this gaming year.
So thats an almost definite NO from me, until i see it selling at £5 in a years time YARRRR!!

While I adore FPS games, Dust will be a big no from me as long as it's console only. It's not that I think console games suck, it's just that I prefer to play FPS games using a mouse and keyboard over a controller. Personal preference issue, nothing else. I wish CCP luck in their venture, otherwise. The premise is sound IMO

Probably yes, eve has become a little stagnant for me at the mo, so maybe it would revitalise my interest in it, I'd have to do some more researching it first to see how much it interacts with eve and if it looks good enough to buy an xbox for.

I would agree on this last point, although i would be curious to hear what games you've had to troubleshoot in the last few years (without using my example).

Yes, if it's released on PS3, since it looks like it will attempt to pick up where Planetside lost the plot and thus not be a generic shooter unlike every other game released on consoles (and on PC for that matter… nothing of any relevance has been released there either in the last 7 years).

Then I would buy it if it's PS3. I won't buy an Xbox360 for any reason.

Don't play that genre at all and have no intention of ever getting a console ..

They would have to release on PC and make some incredible awesome-sauce gimmick in it for me to even consider it.

Besides, wont have the time as Civilization 5 is coming this autumn \o/

Hell yes I'm going to buy it. Why? For the massive amount of tears it will generate for EVE-Online. All these "I'm a PC only person and refuse to play any other platform!" will be crying all over the forums when I take my squad of DUSTers and **** up their planet ****.

I will also **** up their spaceships via EVE as well, just to double **** them off. Twisted Evil

I will be controlling both their games, even though they can only play one. Laughing

Also calling it now, the massive amount of threadnoughts in these forums from babies who don't like console players having an affect on their internet spaceships demanding DUST be completely severed from EVE so they can spin the ship in peace.

So please, please keep the "It's not fair DUST is console only!" tears flowing. They are the best. Wink
Apart from the trolling, the idea is interesting, but I think that a close dependency between the two games, i.e. that nullsec sov is dependent on planetary warfare, is something that would be very difficult to implement. Having Dust players fight for control over PI stuff might work tangentially, but I can't see it working in the long term. I somehow can't imagine FPS players being as dedicated as Eve players are and that would leave whoever is hiring the planetside merc with unreliable at best teams on planet.

And that would lead to yet another round of complaints here on the fourms, i.e. more internet drama.

So, in all likelihood, the link between Eve and Dust will be probably not be a very deep one, at least in the beginning. In fact, I think, given CCP's bottomless capacity for over-hyping and under-delivering, I wouldn't be surprised if much of the vaunted connection between the two happens to be something like Evegate, i.e. rather underwhelming, where CCP mainly use the apparent connection for marketing more than anything else.

But who knows, perhaps CCP can pull off a surprise and make Dust a huge success. I still wouldn't play it because I don't really like FPS games, but I'm sure that many would.

  • Battlefield 2 and battlefield 1942 (yes, I still play it sometimes) had the troubble with Punkbuster which is always annoying to fix.
    Add to this the mods made for them, which usually requires a few reinstalls and complete deletion in between to make sure it will work (this could be seen as a bonus as it's not an option to have mods on consoles afaik).

  • The multiplayer service for company of heroes is acting out every now and then.

  • I've lost count on what unofficial patch that's most recent for VtM: Bloodlines to clean out most of the bugs.

  • Armed Assault was giving me some troubble during install I had to search their forums for.

  • Had to get new codecs and switch graphic drivers to make Fallout 3 work without crashing (this also included Oblivion).

  • Mass Effect 2 started lagging up and doing about .5 fps on the main menu, I just gave up as I've completed it anyway and played the first one instead. Tried a few tips I googled without success and felt unwilling to turn off the CPU shutdown as someone suggested.

  • Was another game just this summer now that kept overheating my graphics card, possibly the ArmA 2 - Operation arrowhead demo.



These are like I said mainly small issues that can be solved with googline and some basic computer knowledge.

Edit: formated it as a list instead
