News Comments > Champions Online Open Beta Correction

Yeah, releasing missions weekly.

And I agree, yes, that's what they get paid for. When I played CoH it was before the whole "create your missions" thing. I'm not saying it's easy, like, everyone and their mother could whip out a mission in fifteen minutes. But, experienced developers should be able to produce something in a timely manner. Maybe they need to make games more modular?

It's the only MMO I care about(albeit not a whole lot). I'm waiting for the open beta to see if it's worth sinking my free time(what little there is) into. Tried CoH and it was pretty meh. I hate games that "force" me to bring along a friend. Is it so hard to ask for weekly multiplayer-optional storyline-driven missions?

Freedom Force is awesome and still has a good little mod community going for it. It's too bad it didn't sell very well. That series needs more sequels.

Several Battle.net features like advanced communication options, achievements, stat-tracking, and more, require players to be connected to the service,

Stuff I could care less about, check.

Seriously. First, they split it into three games and now they're killing my LAN ability. I'm [---] <- That far away from waiting until it hits the bargain bin to purchase.

It could be fun, but 14 clips?
Can you imagine if Rock Band shipped with 14 songs?
Lame.

Yup. I can't play any other way. It's how I've been doing it for, what...13 years? Whenever Quake came out. Even on console games I use it.

Just out of curiousity, GT, and because I'm bored at work, what did Valve promise?

News Comments > Downsized Crystal Dynamics Still "AAA"

I swear this is how it happened for the porn industry. Started with X, then XXX. Now it's up to, like, fifty Xs for how sick the stuff in the video is. Funny thing is, those fifty X videos are about as tame as the original Xs were. The only difference is the women are hotter.

Actually, this is exactly what's going on with titles these days.

It's a slight step above comic book level writing

Comic book writing is usually > game story writing.

Krispy Kreme's only good donut is their original and only when it's freshly made. Then it's the bomb. Day-old is meh and their other selection is meh. I miss Dunkin for flavored donuts. Safeway's are pretty tasty though.

I still have yet to see an MMO that was still fun after the first month. Maybe Champions will be. Who knows? I can't stand mindless repetition in my single player games, why would I pay for it monthly?

cheaper than actually discounting everyone, because of those that fail to claim it

Or those that fail to dot every i and cross every t on the form.

The first Clone Wars cartoon on Cartoon Network was awesome. Everything else is just fail.

Game development would be a bit more recession-proof if it were a bit more meddling-producer/publisher-proof.

Thief based in the 21st century was the premise. Guy was wearing punkish/biker clothes carrying some sort of case in one of the shots.

Sounds like "Hitman: Club Mix".

which is disappointing being Valve's first new IP and full priced release since the original Half-Life.

*cough*Portal*cough*

Okay, my bad for not thinking this through. Portal isn't "full-priced" if by "full-priced" you mean $50(which I never buy games at).

If all the contract says is that it had to begin development more than 2 weeks ago, I bet Bethesda will be fine. I doubt they just started working on it.
