<div class="bbcode_quote_body">What’s the ultimate loadout (magic, weapons, and tech) for a Troll?



Christopher Blohm: I don’t believe there really is an “ultimate loadout,” but there are some things that the Troll makes better use of. As for weapons, the Troll can be pretty effective with most weapons, but they are the best with the minigun as the clip size allows them to fight as long as their health holds out. Sniping can be a dangerous activity, as enemy snipers love the Troll’s huge heads.





The one “must-have” magic item for Trolls is the Tree of Life. Trolls take lots of damage, so they have a serious need to heal. There really isn’t a “must-have” tech for Trolls—some like Smartlink (especially with a minigun), some like Wired Reflexes (with a katana), while I personally like Enhanced Vision.





If you had to compete against a team made up entirely of Trolls, what would your strategy be?



Christopher Blohm: When I see a Troll heavy team, I always buy Anti-Magic Generators. Trolls need Essence to harden, and if the Anti-Magic Generators take away their Essence, they are much less fearsome. I’d also take a sniper rifle and start popping the Troll’s big melons.</div>

This game looks great and may be really fun. My only concern is the little punks that will ruin online games and we all know who they are. We all have played games co-op or what ever and gotten pissed off by some other jerk-off not working as a team or just likes to be an ass to be one and then decide to play the single campaign by your self (NO SINGLE CAMPAIGN). I feel it is a great idea and I just hope those jerk-offs don't ruin it for some of us.

The console version does not have the option of putting up dedicated servers. Also, I don't see how that has anything to do with what he said.

Re: The Shadowrun Thread



Allowing dedicated servers with passwords or admins will cut down on the "little punks" being in the room since they would not be allowed in or they would be booted from the game. Also their is a voting system in public games so I do not see it being a problem here.

That's just it, there isn't an option for hosting a dedicated server. In fact there isn't an option to host at all unless your making a private match. We'll just have to hope that the voting system is used a lot more than it's abused.

if there isnt an option to host at all, then where does the bandwith come from?



i hope it allows for dedicated servers or atleast dedicated hosting, with it being a XBLA title, you never know. i could be wrong, i know very little of the game's options, maybe someone who was in the beta could shed some light on the subject.

The game sets up servers like in Halo 2 with matchmaking. So I guess a host is just chosen randomly.

Re: The Shadowrun Thread



Yeah, I kinda expected less than amazing scores. There are little things like when you go up a ladder you just float up which could have been worked on a little harder.



But honestly the player reviews have all been very positive and reading peoples comments and stuff on forums, it seems only a small handful of people that have actually played it dont like it, and the majority love it.



Its been soo long since I've enjoyed playing any shooters online and I love this game. Its fresh and different from what I'm used to and I urge you all to at least try the demo, (which alot of you have already said you planned on doing anyways) and hopefully you'll enjoy it.

Since I have no clue when my 360 will return I think I will have to g out and get the game for the PC. I can not take it anymore...



-Also on the maps not keeping you interested... I will have to say what the hell? I played the game for four months with only two maps and yet was never bored. It seems someone didnt want to learn how to play.

Its pretty much the same game. Since I won the 360 version anyway its really not a waste of money. The only thing I am wondering about right now is if I plug in a 360 controller will the game still make aiming harder. Sure the graphics wont be what they are on the 360 but still a game is a game.
