News Comments > Gold Sales Lawsuit
30. Impatience Apr 7, 2008, 17:40 Nighthawk
So in a nutshell people buy gold because they're too impatient to work for it?
My pally is at lv68, and, just questing, not doing anything special, I can make 10-20 without even thinking...
As for using it to pay for the skill ups, that's usually a progressive thing, not something in the immediate anyway. I really wish Bliz could track where the gold comes from and if it's "purchased" make it disappear.
Remove the demand, the supply with vanish.

Well, the monthly fee is going to drop since they're going to start making money on advertising right?

Greed Mongers?? Blizzard makes quality games and has been rewarded with purchases.
They're not suing this guy to make money, they're trying to get back the control they rightfully deserve of THEIR GAME because of people abusing the product he's offering.
I'm sure if it was just players using it, Bliz wouldn't make it a huge deal.

What bothers me most about this program isn't legit players using it to level, but the gold spammers using it to spam advertising all over the place, harvest everything they can get their mits on, and, generally just being jackasses.
If joe-nightelf wants to get his new hunter to 70 asap, go for it

News Comments > THQ Director Blames Piracy for Iron Lore Closure
78. Maybe they should look internally? Mar 4, 2008, 12:35 Nighthawk
To stop piracy if it bothers them that much.
Look at any major release, gaming, app, music, movies.
Where do you think the releases come from, internally from ther circle.
Don't blame gamers for problems that are internal.
Furthermore, stop producing half finished crap, there's nothing that gives me more incentive to download a game than when I get one on release day, and find a 300mb patch waiting for me when I get home.
While I'm starting to rant, ask me about the in game ads that arn't changing the prices for the end user...go ahead.

Want to fix piracy, fix the industry first.

News Comments > PC Mass Effect May 6
50. Derek Feb 27, 2008, 07:02 Nighthawk
Thanks for the update Derek, glad to see there's actually important people reading stuff in the forums, refeshes my hope in the industry.

I'll likely pick this up, and I hope it's not just a port to PC.
I won't bash bioware, but I was a little disappointed for a leading PC game dev to develop Mass Effect for 360 only, and while I'm still disappointed, I'm glad to see we're still being thought about, but I imagine it's EA calling the shots now anyway.

News Comments > Chris Taylor on PC Gaming
18. Decent Titles? Feb 27, 2008, 06:43 Nighthawk
Recent favorite titles for me.
Half Life...I'm gonna say all of orange box just to cover it.
Call of Duty 4

Looking forward to a few more, having the potential of being great
Fallout 3, if they can keep the feeling of the original
Fable 2, see my previous rant
Starcraft 2

Give credit to Chris Taylor, I didn't like dungeon siege either, but that's not the only game to his credit.
Total Annihilation still is one of my favorite RTS games for a bunch of reasons, and Supreme Commander is a good follow up to it.

As for world of warcraft bilbo...10million people seem to disagree.

15. Thanks Crytek Feb 23, 2008, 10:43 Nighthawk
I hope other game devs are reading this, because this is how it should be done.
If you screw up, admit, apologize, and we (the community) will typically be happy.
It's not really that complicated...

News Comments > Blizzard on Gold Sales & Power Leveling
22. Re: No subject Feb 22, 2008, 17:36 Nighthawk
Well, I make $50k+ a year and have absolutely NO desire to spend $500 of many things, and buying gold in a game is on the bottom of that list.
My pally is lv65 and I'll be saving up for my flier, not copping out.
Furthermore, I think anyone that buys gold SHOULD be banned. Powerlevelling I'm a little easier on, they're losing on out major parts of the game, so it's their loss anyway.

Judge, Jury, who cares, it was quick example, and with a little digging I'm sure I could find more...
People are suing for the most moronic things, and that needs to get stomped on.

26. Re: Sales vs Innovation Feb 20, 2008, 17:03 Nighthawk
I'm not sure I'm with you on this...
Fable is great because of it's openness, and, if not for the controls, I would have played through black and white.

News Comments > PC Gaming Alliance Formed
52. Microsoft??? Feb 20, 2008, 17:01 Nighthawk
Microsoft doesn't deserve to be in this "alliance"..he's a major contributor to the downfall of the PC gaming industry.
Intel is almost just as guilty, they don't care about gaming, they're just padding their pocket with our money while they pay the devs to jack the system requirements.
If they wanted to help the industry, they would start listening to gamers...

I threw up a little as this thought hit me, EA, for all their downfalls, knows a good game...and should be involved.
/gonna throw up now

22. Sales vs Innovation Feb 20, 2008, 16:50 Nighthawk
I don't know how you guys can bash all his game...a quick Wiki search and I found a number of games that were intelligent, maybe not popular, but popular doesn't equal intelligent...
Populous, a great idea, not sure if it was 100% original, but fairly smart
Syndicate, fun game, loved it, not really innovative, it's basicly an RTS.
Black and White, a learning AI, clunky controls, but innovative
Fable, which I just finished playing AGAIN on my laptop, gave you the freedom to do anything, good, bad, hell you could buy a house in town, seduce a woman, sleep with her, kill her husband, or seduce and sleep with him too.
Can't comment on "the movies" though...never tried it.
So, give the guy some credit, he deserves it.

/buying spore (different guy, but that's innovation)
//waiting for Fable 2
/// oh yeah, dungeon keeper was fun too

4. So.... Feb 20, 2008, 16:38 Nighthawk
...are they gonna settle??

As for a loser pays system, that's a good idea to a degree, but if the it's dismissed due to a technicality, it would be unfair would almost need a 2nd trial/judgement to see if it qualifies.

I'm more a believer that the judge should be able to dismiss something (and fine the plaintiff) on a common sense clause, like the McDonalds coffee incident (suing because she didn't know the coffee was hot?)

I was going to come in here and ask if the game is worth buying (blues forum has becoming the best "review" place I've found), and I already got my answer, thanks troops

News Comments > Spore Dated
10. Ea, Spore, and -messing- it all up Feb 12, 2008, 14:26 Nighthawk
I swore I wouldn't buy EA anymore, because them forcing stuff out the door and having a patch waiting on delivery date, but I've got to get them credit, they've got some great titles behind them.
I';m looking forward to spore, and despite my better judgement, I'll probably get it...
My vote, it's out Sept 7, and there will be a patch waiting...
