    FX system

    Cool. I don't think the melee as it is now is necassarily 'wrong.' It's a step in the right direction, but I'm glad there's another step being taken at least. I'd say listen to the people who constantly shoot off their mouths around here about melee suggestions through whining and generally just...

    FX system

    Cool effects. It's kind of a shame, though. I'd rather the team worked on fixing the game's gameplay rather than do all this windowdressing stuff, but... At least they're doing stuff, right?

    For what it's worth, the team is making a game about a cartoon watched by kids. Surely they couldn't have expected Harvard scholars to be in here debating the ethics of game mechanics and fair play.

    Today's news update

    I'm going to take the time to fix you up here. I never had any 'original' idea in my ESF career. For those of you who don't remember, the ESF Team introduced the advanced melee system, and I gave my take on what would make it better than how they had originally described it. From that point...

    Shin Carl showed me this post and I figured I'd give my opinion. By no means am I still 'here.'

    I'm not knocking their work. They have talent on both mod teams. But last I checked the Mechmod website, they planned on making some Voltron version of Team Fortress or something. Good luck with that. I liked Dragonball Z when I was in 10th grade. Not to insult anyone, but I think anyone...

    Today's news update

    Being a previous beta tester, I'd like to think I have more knowledge about ESF's development than you do. Now, I haven't played ESF at all since August, but here's the reason why I stopped. I was adamant and passionate about doing what I could in the position I was in to make ESF as good...

    Today's news update

    They're adding in animations that will only slow down the game even further than it already is. Rather than kicking someone, you'll be seeing 5 seconds of some animation that might be cool the first 200 times but when you want to get down to business you'll avoid to keep the sluggish gameplay at...

    Pretty much. Check out MechMod if you want to see what a significant portion of the ESF team is really up to. Heh.

    Before you come up with ideas, know that PcJoe has more than expressed his disinterest in making any changes to melee in ESF in the forseeable future.

    Today's news update

    Do you read? They aren't doing that. That's just the outline me and Sonic proposed that was shot down. They'd rather keep it DDR-centric/flavorless KB antic based. 1) You're asking for too much out of Half-Life with destructable terrain, and even if it were possible, I think it'd be a waste...

    Today's news update

    Well, the basic idea of the outline me and Sonic had came up with was a take on the current system, but a little more fast paced. Essentially it went like this. 1. Swoop into someone. You start pre-punching them. 2. You hit a movement direction during the prepunches, (WSAD, Space...

    I hate these discussions. Not that I really remember the mechanics of 1.1 or 1.2 since I haven't played ESF in any capacity since before August, but from what I remember: 1.1's skill came in short bursts in that it was more of a joust. Once someone was hit, they'd usually be flying across...

    WHAT! NO NHL 'TILL 2006?!?

    Blah it's Hockey. What's going to happen is no one's going to care about Hockey whenever they do get it sorted out, and then they won't be getting a paycheck at ALL. Hockey's not popular enough to where the players have a right to complain, if you ask me.

    Moving Soon

    Not exactly my choice. My sister might be getting a job down there, and since I'm living with her right now, I'm getting brought along for the ride. I'll be GOD damned if I go back to my parents', heh. Ah well. Gonna do some apartment hunting down there this weekend. :\
