zeealice added a topic in "Off Topic" Postspacking the bags and goingWell you can do what you want with this, but just hear me out please and thank you.
I'm not leaving because of this forum, this forum has been great over the past 18 months I've been here, yeah okay, we had a few hiccups but the forum is still great.
So basically over these past few months, I've lost interest in the Ghost Recon series, and games all together. so i just don't see the point of lingering around on these forums any more if i can't really be interested in what's being discussed. so i just thought maybe it's time to pack up the account and go. Alex still likes this place and is still takes an interest in the future and past games, so please don't hold my lack of interest and contribution against her in any way.
But i didn't want to just silently leave without saying Thank you and Goodbye to you all, it would be rude.
So Thank You and Goodbye.
Good luck with the site, Rocky

zeealice added a topic in "Off Topic" Postsbest wishes to fellow member, Alexhey everyone!
Alex had an operation yesterday and she is currently laying in bed being her typical zombie-ish self only in a little pain and trying but failing to type.
anyway, against her wishes, i made this thread for you all to wish her well or as Alex jokingly said "quite the opposite" but i doubt you will do that, you are all too nice
anyhow, say what you wish and i'll leave you to it

zeealice added a topic in GR (PC) - General Discussionthe positive bits of the Ghost recon series.seeing as this is series based i placed it here, i hope you dont mind any.
Good morning/afternoon/evening/night Guys and gals hope we are all having a good morn- yeah you get the point
recently i've been looking around the ghost recon facebook page and the ubi page and here. and people seem quite negative or dull about Ghost recon future soldier and to an extent, the advanced warfighter series seemed a bit of a sham too in some cases.
yes okay to some extent i agree with the negatives but lets look at the POSITIVES of the franchise eh?
Ghost Recon 1:
Moddable to almost all extents
replayable beyond replayable.
tactical, no cross com fantasy stuff.
avatar switching made life a little easier.
the scenario was believable, not hollywood or any of that ######
Ghost recon 2 and summit strike:
some great firefights
the ragdoll physics were hilariously amusing.
orders system was a me likey.
and the ability to switch from first to 3rd person (Xbox)
graphics seemed rather ahead of it's time.
massive playable environments.
the PhysX usage was desired.
the engine was quite good.
the inclusion of UAV's and realtime insertions were great.
the tactical map brings a SLIGHT Ghost recon 1 feel back to the game.
the use of open environments was great.
some amazing firefights.
generally the same good things about GRAW.
the new version seems special forces-ey
the reintroduction of civilians!
unique setting, not in the usual iraq, russia or afghanistan like other games well i say russia, it's still based there but you arent fighting overstrong accented english speaking russians with eyepatches
Graphics look very nice.
the story seems interesting
they seem more like a "just get on with the job" lot rather than the AW serie's overdramatic characters.
the soldiers seem like they are equals no "kozak is a big hero" lark.
the characters are somewhat mysterious (we havent seen an ingame render of kozak's face yet as far as i know) it makes me want to see more.
the models of the characters are precise.
i think over the past few weeks, all these delays seem to be a good thing, as ubi actually seem to be trying hard with Ghost recon, despite the future crap. so there is really no point in getting impatient if the game is much better than what it would have been.
it's more than what activision/treyarch are doing... anyway lets not get onto that.
if you have anything to add or lightly dispute, feel free, a discussion is a discussion
