"Dimocrap."


That doesn't even make sense.


Things I wish people would stop doing, because it ALWAYS makes them look dumb:
1) Try to use some creative riff on whatever you're trying to bash. "Dimocrap" "M$" "Crapple." The people here that constantly do it know who they are. It's neither clever nor creative. Well, some are creative, but it's rare

2) Use the term "kiddie" for anything they don't like

3) Try to make subjective choices, like OS or platform, decisions only the mentally disabled would choose differently on

I dunno, call me weird, strange and perverted but Im thinking a crowd showing up at the front door of the powers-that-be with torches and pitchforks while trashing police cars and whatnot, and setting government buildings on fire would be much harder to ignore...


That also gives a government an excuse to bring out the guns. That's the real litmus test (and worse case scenario), if a soldier or government person is willing to take out citizens on government orders.
It also convinces the regular people not paying close attention that you're probably on the wrong side of things, because you're acting irrationally and emotionally.

Not to mention these things tend to bring out the crazies, so while you're flipping a car for privacy someone next to you is flipping a car for 9/11 truth and someone next to him is flipping a car to bring down the Reptilian government. Next to him is probably the guy flipping cars because he figures now is his best chance to flip a car without repercussion. Any point you have is lost in the confusion, and even those who hear it see it next to the idiots and just assume your point must be as irrational as theirs. This last part is what has brought down Occupy Wall Street's message before it even started.

Can we stop with the term "kiddie games" already?
It always comes across as ironic, because I can't imagine anyone older than nine complaining that something is "kiddie." It sounds like a word for people still using fractions when giving their ages.

"I can't watch a Pixar movie, that's kiddie stuff, I'm going to go watch a Transformers movie. That's what adults do!"

B) No they shouldn't be cutting benefits for everyone. There do, however, need to be limits for everyone however so they don't bleed everyone else dry. The needs of the many outweigh those of the few sort of thing. Life at any cost? I don't think so. That goes against the natural order of things.

So people buy insurance for these situations, then... shouldn't be able to use it?
The baby, who will grow up healthy, should die? Because natural order of things?

I assume, then, you take no medication. Cavemen didn't take medication! If they had a kidney stone they died, dammit!


Also, keep in mind that this didn't cost AOL $1 million (I don't think.) It cost their insurance company that much. A company that exists solely for this reason.

You're wrong again, as usual. People have used natural medicines for time immemorial. However, what they didn't use were machines to artificially alive when they were clearly meant to die.

And unless you're willing to have a wholly regulated society that puts people ahead of profits - and clearly you anti-socialists are not - then there will never be enough to go around. So that means tough choices and limits for everyone - except the wealthy. So the millionaires and billionaires win as usual because you don't think they should pay their share like everyone else.

"Natural medicines." So you use nothing prescription, instead you chew on tree bark from GNC?

And I do appreciate being called an anti-socialist after so many years of being called a socialist here. But, if you're criticizing someone for being anti-socialist, does that make you a full fledged socialist?

Also, it makes no sense. I say we should be willing to pay to save babies that can be saved, and that AOL is wrong to put their profits first, and that the insurance company shouldn't complain because this is why you exist, and you claim I'm putting profits first.
I literally said that, in this case, fuck profits, and you claim I'm putting profits first.

Awesome, well this honestly was the only fucking MMORPG that I've ever given a shit about. I have loved Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim with all my heart, they were without a doubt my most favorite games ever! For some stupid, fucking ridiculous reason I was hoping this game was actually going to be good? The Elder Scrolls games are a proven formula for a game that actually works! HOW the fucking hell are these developers not able to use this to make a online game that's awesome? Please tell me, is it that much of a stretch to put this universe into an MMO successfully? Well NIN said it best and most simple; I simply haven't heard anything good about this game. Either way, I seriously believe it's going to be a very long time before I give one shit about any other MMO. Honestly, I'm heartbroken and I feel like I'm going to VOMIT. Fuck it either way, this is the last time I will ever comment on this game again. Ever.

How the hell could they not just make TES an MMO?
Because TES is something like a 60-200 hour game, and MMO players do that many hours in a month.

Given that they can't spend much more to make TES Online than they do to make Skyrim, they have to change how it's played. If you want a game you can put thousands of hours into, the formula has to change. Just stretching out TES would be a disaster, because someone would still reach the "end" within 200 hours.

Basically, you have to make MMOs suck, which is why they all suck. I'd love to see one get its replayability by being more of a micro-game. The games I play the most are the ones you repeatedly start new from.

Playing through the entire game, the only problem this affects is the people going for 100% completion. You only play as Deathstroke in the training sims that are 100% optional and honestly I didn't even know existed until I was looking around a menu and realized I was missing one unlock because I didn't go do the batman part of them.

Are you sure that's the only issue?
If it's just that you can't hit 100%, that isn't a huge concern to me. If it's that you can't finish the game, then that's enormous.

I've had coloured keyboards but I've found only the red led isn't distracting and helps. Seeing as I always eat and drink at my keyboard I destroy them pretty fast so now silicone covers are far more important to me.

Makes sense. There's a reason cockpits have red lighting - your eyes have more red cones and can therefore see better in less red light. In order to see well in blue light, it needs to be brighter and will blow out your night vision.

Part of the reason why I hate the damn blue LEDs on everything. Yeah, I like blue much more than red, but in the dark those blue LEDs are blinding.

Right, because no one ever engages in drama for marketing purposes.

Yes, Cutter, that's what I said. That's exactly what I said. I didn't apply facts to the situation at hand, I extrapolated out to make an enormous generalization.

I didn't look at a guy in Vietnam who was making $50,000 per day before the global papers started doing articles about him who then started getting called a fraud and a ripoff artist (by you, amongst thousands of others) who then pulled his cash cow down (the best way to make money is to not sell anything?) despite it already being downloaded more times than GTA5 was purchased, and cut himself off from his fans entirely.

No, I didn't look at a guy clearly leaving money on the table because he was being personally attacked and it just didn't seem worth it. No, I made a huge, sweeping statement.

On one hand, it's pretty easy to imagine a benefits meeting with your insurance provider, hear rates are going up, being told it is because of million dollar babies, and being flabbergasted. How the hell does that happen? Of course, when you hear how it happens, it starts making a bit more sense.

On the other hand, she's right - this guy made $12 million in pay last year. He's a $12 million dollar baby. And this wasn't "distressed," it was life or death. Is he worth the lives of 12 babies?

Someone in the last thread called this a "last-gen MMORPG."

What, then, is a current or next-gen MMORPG? This indeed looks bland and boring, but, to me, it looks like every other MMORPG out there.

EA said last year they did not want to be voted worst company again. They sure are doing a terrible job at fixing that.

This whole Free-to-Play/Pay-to-Win model sickens me terribly.

Please don't call these "pay to win." That does a disservice to pay to win games. At least you can play pay to win games without paying, even if you're disadvantaged.

These games require money to pay. You will hit a wall of nothing to do very rapidly, with a flashing light telling you to insert more money to do something, otherwise wait X hours.

Yesterday I didn't know what Flappy Bird was. I looked up a YouTube video to find out. I think I was better off not knowing. All of this over... that?

I'm now finding myself hoping that EA's Dungeon Keeper and the whole Flappy Bird thing isn't the precursor to a world of Idiocracy, and that it's just something that will fade in time...

Farmville took us there already. Or pimpwars, which I think pioneered the gameplay style of waiting for energy, but it did it for competitive reasons, not monetary.
but when candy crush makes over 3/4 million a day, you start to get why dungeon keeper mobile blows. If it succeeds, it'll pay off its budget in under a week, and dumb shit like this seems to be succeeding.

Candy Crush earns about $850k/day, so this isn't really difficult to believe.

Well Candy Crush is someone addictive for bored people, Flappy Bird is not even a decent app. Oh and it does have in game advertising.

Of course it has in-game advertising, that's how it makes its money.
Candy Crush is a piece of shit beyond the piece of shit this is. "Sorry, you've used all your play time for today. If you'd like to play another 10 minutes please insert $10."

Flappy Birds, though shitty, is something you can literally play for 5 seconds or 20 minutes. Which is how mobile games are most successful - because people playing them are usually doing it on the bus, or while waiting for takeout, or while their friend runs into the bathroom, etc.

Riiiight! Hahaha_no

So you don't think that this was designed to be a human vs human game? That it's supposed to be like what every zombie movie shows - humans turning on each other?

This isn't supposed to be Left 4 Dead. This is supposed to be a zombie apocalypse bringing out the worst in people.
Sorry if you don't get that. Fortunately, for you, there's pretty much every other zombie game ever made. Like, y'know, Left 4 Dead.

That's not what DayZ is about though. The game has some major flaws but forcing a coop playstyle would rob the game of all of it's tension and that's thin as it is. Wasteland was all about the coop and racing to get to the randomly dropped resources before the other groups. DayZ was (and is) all about collecting everything you need to keep yourself alive only to randomly stumble across some asshat who shoots you on sight and takes all your stuff so you have to start all over again. If you don't enjoy that you probably shouldn't be playing DayZ.
My whole point, was allow one minor option, to increase sales by at least 40%. How do you see the word "force" from, "allow an option on the server"? Translation issue?

I agree Panickd, with you and Dagnamit the zombs aren't ready yet, but that's the whole point of alpha/beta. No one is forcing you to join a Coop server. What the developer is doing is saying, this is my sandbox, play "my way" or you can't play.

Eh. I'm sure, to the devs, the game is more about humans than zombies. Allowing co-op would be like allowing someone to play Mario Brothers, but the goombas would fight alongside you and take out any koopa troopers.

I don't think anyone is denying it's a crappy mobile game that plays like a Flash game circa 1998.

But it's still a huge crappy mobile game that everyone is talking about, regardless of whether they're into games or not. It's kind of like Green Day or Blink 182 - people that were into punk thought they were some kind of lame joke, but they were pop culture phenomenons regardless (or due to it.)

Given that this game is all people have been talking about for a solid week and a half, no, this isn't a pr thing to create demand. We've had three or four topics here about this, reddit and buzz feed can't shut up about it, ign reviewed it and got hundreds of comments in minutes...

sorry, Creston, you're wrong. This is already the game most in demand in the world. Removing it at its peak isn't going to boost it.

as mentioned below, he's been called a thief, a fraud, and a ripoff artist. By more than just cutter (who calls everyone these things, but also called this guy these things.) USA today has even covered this. Whether he is a fraud or not isn't a question in the games community but in the mainstream. Because, like I said, this thing needs no pr because its the biggest game phenomenon since minecraft. At least in the mainstream.

and if you created something simple and suddenly it had people, not just in video games but everywhere, saying you were some kind of dickhead fraud that used bots to scam everyone (which cutter has alleged, the scamming everyone) you may retreat too, guilty or not.
