Must be a UK study because I haven't a clue what a "game portal" is.

I believe what they mean is that they go through another website like Facebook, AOL, Yahoo games, etc.

Risen is a great game. Nice to see it on there. It's one of those games that really makes you feel like you're in the game world. What I really like about it is how difficult it is at the beginning and then you slowly get more powerful. There are too many games that allow you kill too easily at the very beginning. I need a real feeling of progression and and Risen seems to nail it.

All those people who pre-ordered Dragon Age are going to be disappointed.

From all the gameplay videos I've seen, it seems to have a lot of polish and old-school crpg vibe. Looks good to me.

"I've been playing for hte last 2 weeks and not had any issues at all. "

Same here. I've been playing for almost a month and there was only one day that I had a little problem logging in. But other than that, I've had no problems and there are plenty of players on the server. I really think this game is a lot of fun. Don't let the naysayers (i.e. people who probably haven't played it) sway you (but I do agree that all mmos shouldn't charge for the game; only the subscription).

Fallen Earth has a nice old-school mmo vibe. I'm liking it a lot.

I have to agree. You shouldn't have to pay a startup fee (i.e. $50) for an mmo. If your game is any good, people will happily pay a sub fee which will easily cover the startup fee you think you're missing.

I think it's pretty lame to charge a startup fee only to realize after just a few hours of playing that it's horrible. Then you're stuck with a game you don't even want to play.

I've got a feeling that GW2 is going to make all pay2play mmos look really bad.

This is complete bullshit. I hope people pirate the living shit out of it now.

Yeah, because that will always help dev teams get paid.

I played it for a little while. The art directions is pretty good. The quests are fairly interesting. But all-in-all, it ends up feeling like your standard mmo grinder where you're doing more work than having fun playing a 'game'. I kind of feel bad for these guys because they worked on the game for so long. On the other hand, it was their choice to go with the standard model and not try anything new.

Any game that comes AW (After WoW) and uses the standard model will fail pretty quickly. I don't care how high of quality it is. If the gameplay is the standard grinder, it will fail to hook western subscribers.

News Comments > PC Modern Warfare 2 $60? [Updated]
30. Re: PC Modern Warfare 2 $60? Aug 18, 2009, 11:31 Steele Johnson
 
I rarely pay $60 for a console game. I'm typically patient and wait for a used copy or a significant price drop. The economy sucks, so I'm not going to give in to the nickel and diming of the consumer. Screw them.

I really hate how every little thing goes up in price when the economy sucks. Nickel and diming the average person does not work. These companies are just hurting themselves and causing more layoffs. Dumbasses.

After reading this, it's nice to know that I'm not the average gamer (i.e. I'm much older than the average and in much better shape).

This type of mmo is dying out quickly in the west. I just don't see the genre surviving if it stays on this track. And from the looks of some of the games coming out, I think we'll see a genre shift in the near future.

As far as this game goes, they'll probably get a lot of subscribers at first, but I don't think the game will hold their attention for too long.

This genre has a really bad case of 'been there, done that'. I guess you could say that about most other genres, but the problem with this genre is that the story doesn't save it like FPSs and single player RPGs.

The same goes for most RTSs. Now that's a genre that has been burnt out for a really long time. I feel like no matter what game I play, I'm really just playing the same game over and over, and that's how mmos make me feel now.
