News Comments > Chris Roberts Interview

Well, it doesnt seem he has the rights to Wing Commander or Privateer, so this will be no game in Wing Commander universe. So I am not that excited yet, because Freelancer was only meh.

News Comments > Guild Wars 2 Patched

I just started it. Only played a few hours and am only level 6.
The game feels very nice (except for the movement/camera input lag) and is MUCH more challenging than WoW so far.
I dont get many things yet, for example I seem to be leveling very slow, or be unable to kill mobs higher than 2 levels than me, or generally have not clue what some random sounds mean or other stuff that I get, but its still a lot of fun. I havent explored a lot at all. The game feels very new still.

What I find interesting in all of this, is that I cant, for the love of god, find any sale numbers of Cataclysm for the first year or since release. The highest I can find is 4.7 million after 1 month, which is kinda low for a 10 million subscriber game that more or less forces you to use the newest expansion.

Boot times are awesome with Win 8, even better than Win 7. That plus [WinKey]
  • X] combination while ignoring metro gives me a pretty good experience.

  • Who the hell cares for boot times? Are you still shutting down your computer instead of hibernation or sleep? Hibernation and Sleep are as fast on Win 8 as on Win 7.

    But this guy had no problem certifying Minecraft as an iOS app? Hypocrite much?

    I love these people who give Microsoft crap for their pursuit of a closed platform, but give Apple a pass on A) iOS in total, B) the Mac App Store, and C) Gatekeeper.

    Those are closed OS. They always have been. How is it hypocrisy when you dont want an open OS to become closed? I mean... Windows 8 certification? For a game? WTF??
    With that logic everyone is a hypocrite who uses anything closed and doesnt like Windows 8 because it tries to go the same way.

    RE-READ IT. Sales of MoP are down 60% from the PREVIOUS expansion Cata, not from the total subscriber base.

    Now all we need is Activision to make a Super Smash Brother's game with all the Blizzard characters...

    I was talking about that. But if only 3.3 million people have bought Cata, there is no way their subscription numbers are accurate.

    Nevermind, now I get it. I thought they were talking about overall sales since release.

    Wait, wait, wait...
    3.3 million copies only? I thought they still have 10 million subscribers? So it really is true that most of those are either gold bot accounts or accounts that are still subbed but arent played anymore.

    Let us clear up a lot of ignorance (not an insult, that is not a bad word). And hopefully people, especially developers will stop being so dramatic about Windows 8.

    Windows 8 does not magically make your existing Windows software not work. It works exactly the same as before. If it works in WIn7, it works in Win 8.

    You do not have to get approval from Microsoft to install new software, or develop software for Windows 8. No certification required.


    For the app store, which is a controlled environment, for he non power user, you have to have your application certified. This means a basic check to make sure it will function properly, and not steal all of your personal data. This is good for the average user.

    This does not actually effect us that are power users and play games on our PC. We can still do it just as we have always done.

    Enough with this BS made up crap for reasons to justify not wanting Windows 8. All theses complaints about "closing" the system are completely invalid. It is only adding another method of acquiring content, in a more secure and controlled manner. NOTHING is being closed down!

    Oh yeah, thats why there are so many ways to push the user to the thing that was once called Metro. No Start button anymore, Windows always boots up in this abomination of several things, and other UI changes force you to use it.

    I actually have 3 chars on one of those servers and always wanted to change because having idiots in trade chat all day long is bad enough, but an overcrowded server is hell.
    But then I remembered they ruined this game and I dont care anymore.

    Had I known the game would turn out the way it did, I would not have bothered with it.
    I don't like where the game has gotten to, but there's no way I could say that. I enjoyed the hell out of the first four years I played the game.

    Of course, I agree with you. deqer's comment is beyond absurd.

    I am thoroughly convinced that is what s/he is going for...


    As for no start left in AV... lead by example.. go get a tower back... no need to defend your own since it's not happening, except in my BG(group) where we get back capped all the time : )

    -Alamar

    Thats what I did all the time. You can forget getting one of the middle towers back on your own, because there are always at least 3 people in there. What I did was use my stealth abilities and some tricks to fool the guys in the southern towers. For example people often stand outside and dont guard the flag and with a shrink potion they wouldnt be able to see me when I was positioned well, even outside at the GY flag. Also sometimes there was only one or two guarding and I could kill them on my own and then take the tower back before someone noticed. It made the game a little fun, especially since with only that tactic I bought my team just enough time to compensate for the balance issues. If I was successful there, 99% of the time my team would win. Of course there were sometimes far too many guarding those towers, so I couldnt do anything about it. But if they now just need to cap the towers to win, they will guard those much better and thus I wouldnt be able to do that anymore. And you can forget it to ask people to help, because they wont, or are too stupid.

    I remember when they said they never again want to mess with AV. Not only since then, did they remove things that actually made it more balanced, now they also adjusted the reinforcements. Awesome. Even quicker and lamer games now, putting the alliance in an ever bigger advantage, since they can cap/reach things quicker.

    I seriously dont care anymore, since I have finally completely deleted that POS game for good after 5.0, but its still interesting to see them break even more each day and seeing this game getting reduced to a scrawny skeleton of its former glory.

    Im pretty sure that they will be released. Greece lives and breathes because of tourism, this kind of shit wont fly. And who would want to spy on the Greek military anyway. Turkey? They wouldnt bother when they can just ask their friends from the CIA

    If Russia was to attack Turkey from the rear, would Greece help?


    Only if Russia would pay their fuel. Who am I kidding, Germany is paying for it anyway.

    As I've said before... I've had very little interest in this since they changed it from a re-make to a re-imagination. If I ever do bother to download it... it will probably when they actually finish it... with Xen and all.

    /shrug

    Wow. Trying to be nice atm so all I can say is wow.

    What? More likely "trying to be not a fanboy atm". Its his opinion, and even I thought to download it only when its completely finished, because somehow I think it will take at least half the time it took them to complete this piece, to complete Xen too. And then I would have to play it from the beginning again anyway.

    And here I thought, until now, that BIS and its games are very popular amongst military people.
    Some militaries even invite those guys to record sounds of their vehicles and weapons and make detailed pictures of planes, choppers, vehicles, weapons and uniforms.

    Maybe they havent realized yet who they arrested. Or maybe Turkey invited them first.

    On a related note: Privateer 2 was by Chris Roberts brother, not him iirc, and they shouldn't have tacked on the Privateer name. But what do you expect of EA.
    Freelancer had shitty controls, stupid story, a stupid way of factions (Germany, China (or was it Japan?), etc. Ugly ships, boring gameplay and a pretty sterile feeling.
    Privateer 2 had ugly ships, stupid story and was sterile par excellence.
