I dont' think anyone feels bad for Sony. At what point did this world change into "if I do something I should make money"? Everything is a risk. Take your losses with your wins and move on.

/And didn't an investigation show it was an inside job and not N Korea?

Well, the Pack Hawks game, the lesser of 2 evils won. I look forward to NE destroying the hawks. Shut them up. The hawks don't respect the game with the way they act. Perfect example is the way Lynch acts. Hope he "retires" this year. I don't see the hawks keeping him anyway. He is a distraction. He has Randy Moss'd himself.

Anyway. I lost interest after the playoff round, but I am happy to see the Pack lose. I cant believe AR stood up there and said "we were the better team today". huh? You couldn't win with 5 takeaways? wow. Arrogant prick. And I don't want to hear about any of this "playing hurt" crap. Grow a pair. If you are hurt and want to use it as an excuse, then bench yourself.

Boosting would be faster then normal exp/rank gain. So i'd assume reverse boosting would be killing yourself so you go into a lower ranked game and then can dominate the less skilled players to get more exp faster(xp per kill+ bonus from streaks.) It prob has to do with how their ranking servers put people in match making.

Ah, thanks. I was trying to figure out what the motivation was. Not a huge competitive MP gamer.

Which would matter if player numbers were huge, but they never have been for this game. Just finding a game is hard.

/4,000 current players, the game averages 10k peak a day....that is garbage. It is pretty far down the list....

http://store.steampowered.com/stats/

If you like DeathMatch (disgusting) then you will be fine, as 80-90% of that is vanilla deathmatch, a worthless gameplay style. If you are NOT a vanilla TDM player, the game is dead.

If you like to play a real game mode - or anything hardcore, then you are out of luck. Oh, and no CTF in Hardcore mode - WTF?

Good to see the Call of Duty games fall off of the PC playlist. AW never made the top 20 I do not believe. In fact Binding of Isaac and CoD came out same week and Isaac was always above it in numbers......

Is anyone playing this game online right now?
How is the MP?
Is it still popular? I kinda miss the old CoD games.
WaW was one of my favorites back in the day.

Edit: I've tried the MP on the free weekend and the graphics looked pretty dull. I don't know if some of my settings were off or the game just looks like that due to console graphics capabilities

Nope. The air war jumping took the fun out of it. It was fun at first when the servers didn't lag to shit. Now he who is host wins everytime. My frames are all jacked in the game, can't seem to fix it. So I went back to a level playing field CoD where people can't fly.

The engine for the game can't handle 3D fighting. It is an X plane fighting engine.

Reverse boosting? I think it is called griefing? Trolling? Being a twat?

Yes, please ban those people asap. I am amazed it took this long to do it. I see it all the time, you will have a match against a clan, but 1-2 people got put on my team, and they do that so their friends can "win".

I would assume that is all games, the data came back pretty fast. I would probably cut that in half to be accurate.

STOP FEEDING THE TROLLS!

Heh, I see you define troll as anybody who has a viewpoint about life that doesn't square up with your all-knowing, all encompassing life view? How lazy one has to be to scream "Troll!" because he has no other defense. Amazing!

STOP FEEDING PSYCHOTIC MORONS!

Is that better?

It works well in GTA5, random. It is a blast. Everyone goes for them even though we all have millions of dollars. The battle that erupts is pretty funny.

WOW is right... people are losing their shit about not getting one for taking a break, sad and funny at the same time.

Depending on how they bought their time, 1300-1800 statute that you can buy on ebay for 150. hahahahah I love it.

Very cool move on their part, I don't know much detail behind it, but it would be cool if they were serialized with usernames.

Ill let the dust settle, then grab one for gaming history.

I've heard the same Ozmodan, even the full game is apparently cracked. No idea how it works and I've never heard of a mmog being played offline, maybe there setting up private servers.

It's pretty clear the Guild Wars 2 and Secret World models are the most successful F2P style mmog models. Yet, smedely is always doing some stupid crap which never works and loses longtime subscribers to soe as a whole. It's got to be some kind of deluded narcissism. He must spend as much time lying to his board as he does to customers. Yet the people on the soe board must have no idea about gaming to let him keep his job. Surely corporate greed will take over at some point and just fire him for all the lost income.

? WOW has rouge private servers.....

Welp....I paid full price. I know, big shocker - I am sure you are all covered in disbelief.

I bought the super awesome boxed edition for 360 that came with all of the goodies. The money bag fits nicely in my GTA4 engraved lock box.

I bought the digital version on PS3, and got RDR for free. I won't buy digital AAA games from PSN anymore, the game takes FOREVER to load. There are reports online that it is 2-4x longer load times, which is crazy. It is a NEW God of War red PS3, and it drives me nuts. Oh well other than the load time, it doesn't change anything else that I have noticed. I do enjoy playing RDR.

I bought GTA5 on pc, full price, cause they deserve it. I could have saved 15.00, but I wanted it on my Steam account.

Rockstar Social Club.....I have had zero issues with them. I played the hell outta Max Payne 3 online when it first came out. The game isn't really for that purpose, and I had fun for a while, but it was very easy. People really sucked at it and I found the play to be very boring. I haven't had ANY issues with RSC in any game that I have played from them. I have more issues with my internet than with the SC.

Anyway. I hope to see most of you in game on the PC whe it hits. If not, we will welcome you with open arms and newbs when you do finally make it.

What the!?

WTF indeed! WTG is that shite?! Why even remake it if they're not going to do it properly. The best thing about those shows was the craftsmanship that went into building all those models.

I assume they are doing it for money savings. Probably didn't think it was going to last, but it got picked up again. So, why not CGI with little effort, a quarter of the staff and cost.

Sucks.

Well...I think it is dumb, but if I play the game later on for free, cause, they said it will be, then I guess I wouldn't be totally upset if a group of my friends and I got to the package and wiped everyone out, cleaned their corpses for their loot AND got the phat loot crate.....cause there will be PLENTY of people to spend money for air drops. People buy ALL SORTS OF CRAP for the meta game. Look at Steam. there are people in the 300 levels of their account. You go through their list of games and they have played 1-2 hours on each of their 6,000 games!

So, big deal. I won't be spending money on drops, but hey, if I and my buddies benefit - fuggit.

You are all a bunch of socialist control freaks. The nazi swat teams shouldn't exist in the first place. 30 day sentence is plenty for someone to think about what they've done, especially after the whole trial fiasco. Maybe a repeat offender increase the sentence to six months in the worst case. Yes if someone is shot or killed then that might be grounds for holding the caller partially responsible but the swat teams take a lot of that responsibility for their own behavior too.

edit: this is a case where the feds make especially cruel and unusual punishments for people interfering with them. All that does is escalate things further over time (blowback).

We're not pro-SWAT, we're anti-SWATting. The militarization of police forces is a different issue entirely. I agree that they shouldn't exist, and a whole raft of "crimes" should be misdemeanors, not felonies as they currently are. This whole "war" on drugs bullshit has to stop, as do no-knock raids and server warrants with SWAT teams, and surplus military equipment needs to stop going to police departments.

I agree with everything you said, as long as the bad guys don't have rifles. But, they do. So we are going to use everything we can get our hands on. Cause family.

I don't think you and I are very far apart. I think the police should have access to rifles. It's not the primary weapon you carry on your person, but there are rare times where it might be needed. What I oppose:

- Military equipment like APCs and sniper rifles going to regular police departments. It gets misused, and precludes other avenues of conflict resolution. Limit it to SWAT teams that have the training.

- Essentially end no-knock warrants. They've increased from 3000 a year in the '80s to 80,000 a year today. They're extremely dangerous to both police and civilian, and are unnecessary in the vast majority of cases.

- Use SWAT teams when all other avenues have been exhausted. It seems they're often the first choice these days, not the last.

- Essentially end the war on drugs. Make possession and even intent to sell misdemeanors. Undercut drug dealers by making drugs available to addicts for a cheap prescription price if they agree to attend counseling. It's a small price to pay to get clean drugs at a 95% discount, and it will greatly reduce all the crime associated with drug acquisition: theft, robbery, prostitution, etc.

We will take it offline sometime....i am exhausted and can't even string thoughts together....I think we would have a good chat....
