Would you mind expanding on your comment?
I don't think he can. Or perhahps: "I was just pissing in the wind"

Or perhaps I wasn't sitting here pressing the refresh button.

Anyway, one of the most infamous accounts of Turbine F'ing over gamers is when they sold an expansion pack for one of their older MMO's, then shut the game down shortly afterwards.

I've always kept an eye out for any "announcement" by Turbine. They nearly always end up being some over hyped marketing campaign scam for quick cash.

Turbine is pretty much a company of crooks. You don't have to believe me if you don't want to. But don't say I didn't warn you when you wonder how you could have fallen for such a sham.

Just to give you some perspective on how "free" this is. The full game, including 1 month of play time, is usually available for $5.

How does one equate "good twitch skills" with "requires some form of intellect".

Typical elitist.

The game is crap. The AC2 engine has been crap for ages.

Why in the world would they decide to release this on the same day as Champions Online. Free or not.

Like many people, you are under the false impression that Turbine is somehow trying to make money.

News Comments > RAGE Screenshots
2. Re: RAGE Screenshots Aug 14, 2009, 14:58 Stanly Manly
 
From a technical perspective, the first screenshot impressed me. The player weapon seemed very well done. Very smooth, rounded edges... matte finish... detailed textures on knobs and other minutia. Its a nice change from the overly shiny, square crap that I have been accustomed to seeing.

However, the latter screenshots just made me cringe. The stretched textures across the obviously low poly areas on the enemy models seemed quite out of place. Maybe it won't be noticeable while playing, but then again, neither will the other details...

If I had to sum it up, I'd have to say "feast or famine".

Taken on its own, its defintely not a bad looking trailer. However, there just wasn't anything that looked original, when you compare it to other games. The environment felt very falloutish, with some half life buggy riding, some team fortress/halflife turrets, and a god of war extra big boss.

I might just be jaded, but I don't see any reason to buy it, based on the trailer. Seems like another "me too" fps.

I guess people still haven't figured out that Turbine is just a money laundering outfit for the Boston area.

What is going to be funny is just how completely unimportant this game will probably turn out to be. I know we all have a soft spot in our heart for the creator of doom and quake, but today, any new fps is just yet another fett clone in a sea of fett clones.

I do love the sensationalist media hype though. Always good for a laugh.

Dude: First of all, the pirates attacking one miner are going to be pitiful. There's no "BOOM, dead" in that situation, unless you're an NPC, so it's a choice. Also, months of training doesn't vanish with your expensive ship, or even with getting podded.

Secondly, the PVP doesn't find you unless you unless you're doing something reckless. I like your cat-and-mouse analogy, but think of it this way: unless you have back-up, you are a mouse in Eve. Even the strongest Titan will be destroyed by hordes of smaller ships, that's why you travel in fleets.

Don't act like dealing with other players is too much trouble. If you're absolutely unable to find a corp to play with in-game, go to the official messageboards and so who's recruiting.

All of which is completely meaningless to a new player who thinks they can "fend off some pirates" as referenced in the movie. Its just a blatent fabrication.

Don't get me wrong, I still play Eve from time to time, but it is certainly not the game that is portrayed in that video.

Imagine you warp into an asteroid field and find a mining ship getting attacked by pirates, you decide to...DEAD. You died because the pirates attacking outnumbered you and insta-killed you with WAY BETTER WEAPONRY the instant you came out of warp, game just didn't realize how fast you died, so you thought you might have a choice. Now you're in a pod, what are you going...BOOM, dead. You should have tried to flee but they got you. Sorry try again later.

Almost right. But to be even more accurate, the new player would never have gotten to the miner in the first place, because they would be blown up right as they decloaked out of the warpgate.

Nice video. Absolutely no relevence to the real game, however.

Oh, don't you worry. I never plan on breeding. Babies are fucking up this planet almost as much as China. Didn't you read what I wrote before? We need less babies. Just look at all the hard gangster wannabes shooting up neighborhoods.

And you don't put an apostrophe with "its" unless you're trying to say "it is." Go to school.

So sophomoric.

So you can prove conclusively that you have to grind longer because of chinese gold farmers?

Oddly enough, it always seems to me that prices go down, not up. Also seems that plenty of gear drops from dungeons, or quests, or raids. Crazy, I know.

Keep parroting off what someone else told you though, that cluelessness looks good on ya.

Demand... supply. I don't see a problem.

Whiners who want to champion the "cause" of in game "economies" are the same kind of people who strap themselves to a tree to protest it from being cut down. Some people just want to complain about something. And they will never be able to give any substantial reasoning behind their protest. Just parrot off whatever someone else told them.

I mean, seriously, its a video game. Step back and say that again... vid e o game.
