Hey, anyone get DOD: S yet? I love HDR, makes the game look much more realistic. But dont you guys think that it should be not an option to switch it off, because I think that it may be an advantage to someone to have it off when everyone else has it on. What you guys think, How do you like it so far, post some screens!

After buying the collectors edition and not having the ability to get DoD, I'm pissed. Valve making the CE buyers go out and spend another $20 is extremely lame. I paid big bucks for the CE because I wanted all of that... not to spend more than the Gold or Silver Package user.

I mean come on Valve! :roll:

DOD is the bomb. I would think its better than cs souce. The only problem is that they have changed the recoil so much on the guns that it is hard to shoot now and the sniper is not one shot killer anymore. But still the graphic rendering of the hl2 engine is so phenominal.

HL 1 and 2 were both great games. I can live without CS and CS:S. Never really played DoD. What I wish they would remake is Team Fortress. That was a blast to play!

It's not bad as far as a mod goes... but it's ridiculous that they charged MONEY for it.

First off, it only has four official maps ($5 a map? please)
It's also missing several guns from the original game (m1 carbine isn't selectible as a class, grease gun is gone, semi auto mauser isn't in the game)
The class balance is absurd, and the weapon accuracy is pathetic (which makes the game a huge spray fest compared to the original)


So what this shows me... is that an official product from valve with over a year (probably more around 2) of full time development from a professional team can't be expected to compete with a 3 year old mod developed in around the same timeframe by a group of people in their spare time after work in terms of content and gameplay?


It's damn cool though, I must admit. HDR Rox my sox.

I pwn at long range engagements in DODS I swear. I can shoot the fleas off a dogs back, as Doc Brown would say it, from 50 yards with a Garand, and even better with a sniper rifle.

With a few high res skin additions, the game looks El Gorgeouso, especially with HDR, 6x Quality Adaptive AA, and 16x High Quality AA. =D

the kar? i fail to see how that's a nub cannon. bolt action requires more skill than a semi-auto in my opinion.
