So why then do people describe something like Kingdoms of Amalur as a "single-player MMO?" Because the term has come to represent more than its acronym.

Most likely they are trying to cash in on the people that have heard of the MMO genre and are familiar with games like World of Warcraft. It is easier to say single-player MMO, even though that is an oxymoron. That doesn't mean MMO no longer means Massively Multi-player Online, it means the person that wrote that is lazy. Kingdoms of Amalur is a single-player action adventure RPG. Guild Wars is a multi-player dungeon RPG or something similar.

A lot of people seem to hold GW in fairly high regard. I'm not an MMO fan. I've watched friends play them, and just never saw the appeal. Is this one any different? I just don't enjoy grinding and don't have the time to put in for long play-sessions. If it's not fun to just play for an hour a few times a week, then it's probably not for me.

Calling the original Guild Wars an MMO is a very, very long stretch, so if you don't like MMO gameplay style I would say give it a shot. As for GW2, I don't know enough about it to form an opinion, try for the beta, can't hurt.

Comcast is definitely one of the most retarded ISP/cable providers out there. Not to mention their services are 15 different kinds of terrible.

Well my 3D Mark 11 score went up a tiny bit, and no problems so far. I have to say that comparison screenshot tool nvidia has on their site, is the coolest and most helpful I have ever seen.

OK tried it out with Skyrim and Ambient Occlusion set to Quality. I normally hit the cap with my framerate at 60fps on my GTX 570, with AO on I get 45fps avg but it jumps around a lot. Still pretty decent performance but with hiccups every once in awhile. This is Ultra settings at 1920x1200 and the texture pack on.

Such an amazing series, I can lose myself for hours in 1701, love the two hour warning. It really is a shame, I was so looking forward to this futuristic spin.

News Comments > The Old Republic Code Issues

My CE box had several issues with it as well. They used these awful circular tape things to put the plastic surrounding case on, so removing them would result in destroying the cardboard, since I tried a part of one. The inside of the box was ripped in one location and the stand for the figure is out of alignment which resulted in a scratch when trying to put it together since the legs need a little manipulating to fit.

But hey I could read my code.

Im hoping this game fails horribly, from what Ive seen of it its an attempt by Bioware to fool people into thinking they are playing an actual MMO.

While I don't hope it fails, I am inclined to agree that it isn't really an MMO, it is KOTOR 3 with a monthly fee thrown in. With that said, I am going to play until my free month is up, because I do think it is a good game, but I don't think it is going to have much longevity.

The UI still irritates me, not because it sucks with the mouse (I just use the keyboard) but because so much is hidden. I just figured out that you hit R to unlock shouts with stored up dragon souls. Every time I'd tried to select a new shout, it had just said I needed a dragon soul. I'd pushed along in the relevant quest lines, killed dragons and then immediately tried to select the shout.....and then 20 minutes ago I accidentally stumbled across how to do it. Bah!

It should unlock on selection, but to be fair it does tell you at the bottom that R will unlock it.

Someone called me yesterday to go fix their son's xbox, after troubleshooting for a while and numerous calls to Verizon and Microsoft I was able to come to the conclusion that somehow Microsoft was blocking a portion of IP's from New Jersey from accessing certain servers, namely xbox login. I had to inform both companies of this, only then did they admit that a large block of IP's in New Jersey using FIOS can not access xbox live. Apparently 'engineers' are working on it, I can only imagine the rage going on in some households around here. I see I still can't access live.xbox.com, just as a test.

I like the early access deal. Since I preordered the CE, I can play for a week before needing a code. If I don't like the game, I can return or sell my unopened CE for profit!

You need to enter your code to get early access, I got my code immediately from Amazon when I ordered. So if you haven't done that you should soon, according to this announcement, if you want more time to play ahead of release.

I can cancel my order before the item actually ships but I can't transfer ownership without handing over my Origin account. So selling an unopened CE for profit won't be a possibility unless you use a throwaway Origin account as you would need to transfer that to the buyer.

YOU DO NOT NEED ORIGIN FOR THIS GAME.

Then why did my SWTOR.com account become an Origin account when I entered my pre-order code? Because it is tied to an Origin account that is why. Like others have said you may not need to run Origin at the same time, but I assure it is tied to Origin, I can even see it on my Origin account when I log into it, even though I purchased it on Amazon. Take it easy.

Still no dice (ha) on getting the damn thing to run again.

I was getting a directx error on load that was a result of my amBX setup, I just shut all that down and it boots up, if that is your problem.

What you describe sounds like an uplink disconnect to the server. You were receiving data from the server alright, but your packets might not have been getting back to the server. My advice for you is to consider this an issue with the particular server you are playing on and try another.

Yeah they are a number of variables, server, number of players, or map, the trick is getting the perfect combination, for me at least.

Yeah there's the rubber banding and then there's the equally bad lag deaths when I'm already around the corner but taking hits anyway because the person shooting me is lagged. It means the client is dominant, not the server. It's a way to hide lag and it sacrifices gameplay for those of us with low pings. BF3 is much worse than BF2 in this regard. IIRC even BC2 didn't behave like this.

Yeah this one is definitely the worst with maybe the exception of 1942 on release. I followed two guys in a jeep in my own jeep and once they stopped I switched to the gunner position and lit their gunner up for a good 20 seconds. I couldn't figure out why he wasn't dying, the whole time he is searching for me even looking right at me and not seeing me. Finally I get shot in the back of the head and my death cam shows my jeep 100 feet in front of his. It was very strange, because I wasn't lagged out, I could see all the activity in front of me just fine.

The lag and rubber-banding is pretty ridiculous most of the time, it is rare that I find a server with none. It seems to be the worst on Tehran Highway.

I can sit in front of a random level I've never seen (and there are plenty since I won't buy a $15 map pack) and tell you within seconds if it's MW or MW2. Or I can tell you when I get to 5 kills as the perk gameplay mechanic was drastically changed. Along with many other mechanics.

Yeah but can you do that with a screenshot? I could probably do the same thing with 98% of the screenshots of every Battlefield game. That is because they update their engine between games.

A couple things about this video.

Wow that player is bad, someone should tell Mike a bow is not a melee weapon.

Textures do seem to be only a slight improvement over Oblivion, which came out years ago, I hope this is just a console thing.

Animations are terrible and character customization seems very limited, this is always the case but one would hope they would improve eventually.

At this point it seems like a mod for Oblivion (which I liked), this video kind of toned down my anticipation for this game.

Just Cause 2 would of been the perfect game if it had some sort of coop, still tremendous fun though, managed to get like 55% complete.

I hope they add that in the next one.
