It will prolly be more like this:
Shields that look like a huge iPhone, clubs that look like a certain brand of tampons, mounts that are named BEEEMER (or look like one), facebook like-buttons on every item, NPC and zone entrance, Items that magically turn into something different and make the "Transformers sound", an inn called McDunolds... you name it.

Ah excellent, so that just leaves the same problem to re-occur when we change either the CPU, the RAM, the motherboard, any disk drive, any optical drive, any non-GPU PCI-E card or possibly the BIOS if it affects any part of their hashing algorithm.

Jesus, just give it up already.

Hahaha, yeah I was thinking the same thing.
They dont get that not only graphics card get tested, but also RAM, CPUs, motherboards, drives, etc, etc, etc.
They need to die already.

Balance updates! ROFL

When I quit WoW last year after Cataclysm came out, the biggest reason was that it became apparent that the WoW team has no idea what in the hell they are doing anymore. For the first few months of that expansion they were dicking around with talents so much, your entire rotation and play style could change from week to week.


Yeah, they still have lots of bugs in the game from that time, too.
Right now I doubt they actually care about people leaving. They act like everything is unimportant anyway.
For the first time in 7 years I know I wont be coming back.

Yes, I almost cut my wrists too.
But then I realized that this originated from the biggest AMD fanboy site there is and I watched the video myself. Yep, now my stash of razor blades wont have to suffer today.

Other, more impartial sources have reported the same thing.

That being said, AnandTech was reporting one of their test platforms for Ivy Bridge was available to play around with, and it gave a Windows Experience Index score of 3.6.

...if that's not an indictment of what their integrated graphics are capable of, I don't know what is. (For comparison, my two-and-a-half year old mid-high-rang laptop scores a 4.8, and my desktop scores a 7.1.)

Maybe you should have actually read that Anandtech article and watched the video with the HD 4000 running the game live instead of just looking at the picture.

But ok, I see that some people think the Windows score is the ultimate benchmark. lol... Geez...

While I agree completely, I hate p2p downloaders, and that it's default is on, but they are hardly being "sneaky".

WoW and SC2 are the same way, which means 10's of millions of people are fully aware of how the Blizzard uses a p2p downloader that is defaulted to on. It's only sharing while you are downloading.
If they weren't being sneaky they would provide an option during the install to enable or disable it. Even when installers try to change your default search engine - which is a sleazy business tactic - they provide a tick-box in the installer, which most people simply overlook anyway. Blizzard doesn't ask for permission to use your bandwidth, it just does it by default. It would be like buying a car and then they put a billboard up on your lawn because somewhere in the smallprint it said so - heck, even in that situation you'd know it was happening; the Blizzard downloader hides that it's uploading.

They are exploiting YOUR resources for THEIR commercial gain.

Every Blizzard downloader has had the ability to disable peer to peer downloading in the options. Whoever said it still uses peer to peer even when you uncheck the box is smoking crack. And not every installer has a checkbox to not install a stealth bar of some type. Starcraft did not have an open beta, and it sold just fine with a constant connection. Blizzard is as far from Ubi as you can get. They aren't using always on only as a form of DRM. They are using it for many different reasons.

I guess you never disabled that check, else you would still be downloading WoW patches from 2007.

I disable it every time and still get 1MB/s+ downloads with no upload. At least for me their HTTP direct download is usually faster than their P2P download.

I actually believe that, if your MB/s would be Mb/s.

You guys have it backwards, change is what keeps people coming back.

I have been coming back since WotLK, alright. But only to leave again after 2 months max, every time a little more disappointed. This time is so bad, after seeing that they dont really care about polishing anymore and actually making everything worse, that I wont be coming back this time. I guess I will give ToR a try.

It has not moved back to WotLK. Its easier than ever before. You get high level equipment even if you fart and most bugs and balance issues from 4.0 still exist, while new ones have been added again.

I'm confused. Are you saying Wrath was hard and high level equipment didn't come from farts? Perhaps we were playing different games.

Exactly thats what I am saying (minus that it was ever really that hard, unless youre talking about getting people to work together properly). Instances in WotLK were not that easy. Maybe when you played it, but not for a long time after release. Also you should remember how hard the new 5-mans were at the end. Especially the last one with those waves of ghosts.
Equipment wasnt that easy to get without raiding.

The instances in Cata were only hard at the start because especially tanks and healers had to adapt to a whole new playing style and of course because equipment sucked.

Now look at what happened with 4.3. Equipment is extremely easy to get, hell you even get conquest points for random BGs and lots of valor points, even if you dont raid. And when you raid, youre fucked because of the cap. Getting good PvE equipment doesnt even make sense anymore because youre done with content in a few weeks anyway. And those new instances they added are a joke. They are so easy, that on day one I ran them all about 20 times and only VERY few were total fails (like some people running them with level 308 gear and stuff). In my very first 3 instances I didnt wipe ONE SINGLE TIME. Not to mention all those buffs you get in instances now to make them even more easy. I dont even know anymore how my damage and healing is without all of those.
Oh yeah, and people run PvE with PvP equipment again - and pull very respectable DPS/HPS......
You call that similar to WotLK???
Its a fucking facebook game now....

If they start moving back to where they were at either TBC or Wrath, they'd draw them back.

4.3 has moved back towards Wrath. The 5-man instances remind me a lot of ICC. They're fun to run. They will, of course, fuck this all up with 5.0 and their talent changes.

Also, most of my guild uses RealID. I think it sucks, but meh. They message each other when they want to raid and everyone logs in. I guess that's the point.

It has not moved back to WotLK. Its easier than ever before. You get high level equipment even if you fart and most bugs and balance issues from 4.0 still exist, while new ones have been added again.

Yeah, I resubbed for 4.3. And now I already cancelled again.

From the FAQ:
Each BattleTag is automatically assigned a 4-digit BattleTag code, which combines with your chosen name to create a unique identifier (e.g. AwesomeGnome#3592).
The "10,000 Illidans" campaign begins NOW. BattleTags are not prepared.

I have to admit that playing the terrorists in Generals was my favorite part of the game. It was definitely a different mindset and strategy than a usual RTS faction has and I really enjoyed that.

It was fun doing a "zerg rush" with expendable units/mobs with molotovs, also upgrading pick up trucks to be fast harassment units, etc.

Now, breathe in... thats it! And out! Ahhh! Again! Oh yes! Feel better?

I really dont care anymore. There is no use to it anyway since mainstream will always be stronger than quality. They are so dumbed down by consoles already, they are even calling BF3 a real PC game... It has come that far...

Anyway, I am pretty much done with my gaming hobby. I have 1 or 2 games running on my PC. Sometimes a MMO, sometimes a real PC game (like ArmA 2 for example) that I play regularly. I might be buying Mass Effect 3 when it comes out, just too see how it all ends, and I am still curious about Natural Selection 2, but thats about it. PC games are now only shitty console ports that all play the same way and are extremely dumbed down. Complexity seems to be a new taboo. Consoles and people who supported bullshit platforms like Steam and thus encouraged other publishers to do the same shit, only worse, are to blame. But I really dont care anymore. Im putting more effort into my other hobbies now.

I will miss the days when you could play Tribes without hassle with some bloatware and spyware running in the background, explored nice worlds in Bioware and Black Isle games, laughing out loud in TFC because of funny gameplay situations, not funny graphics, or enjoyed Spacesims. But I know Im just lying to myself when I keep hoping everyday for a proper X-Wing remake announcement or a proper AvP2 sequel, or Bioware making real RPGs again.
