Still waiting for a free trial or forget it.

Don't you know, open betas are the new free trials. And then when the open beta ends you have to pay to keep beta testing it. Aren't MMOGs just so great?

SimFarm was pretty good IMO, and has aged relatively well.

You heard it here first, folks. WoW is the safe, predictable Buick of MMOs. The cornerstone of gaming suburbia, the doormat of progress. Lay down the rest of your lives and relax in WoW.

That explains why I found WoW excruciatingly boring.

News Comments > Game Addiction "Pandemic"?
9. Re: Game Addiction Sep 17, 2009, 14:31 dubfanatic
 
decry it as an addiction akin to narcotics so as to seem morally in-the-right so that you can get back on the factory line (so to speak).

But we don't have factories anymore...

Last time I went in to renew my license, there was nobody in the office except the clerks. There are some perks to living in the relative middle of nowhere..

You could do this in XP and Vista too... I've been using an iconless desktop for years now.

Yeah, sounds like a bunch of marketing bullshit to me. "Ever-changing, ever-uncertain in-game environment"? It's like the author hasn't actually played WoW for more than 20 minutes.

to prove defamation you have to prove the defendant knowingly LIED about the so-called defamatory claims. if he believed them to be true, its not defamation. so good luck with that

This is true in countries with sane defamation laws. Australia has the most fucked up defamation laws in the world, which is why Evony chose it as the jurisdiction, even though no parties involved are based there.

A blog no one reads, and an MMO that no one plays.

I smell viral marketing.

Just because you haven't read it doesn't mean nobody else has been keeping up on this.

haha I can see the board meetings... "OK zombies and superheroes are both really popular right now, which one should we try to shoehorn into a game totally unrelated to either one? Oh, damn, you mean someone just made another superhero MMOG? Zombies it is then."

f I had the choice of being placed in a room with a thousand people who supposedly have contracted this *killer* virus <cough, cough> or having the virus injected straight into my bloodstream guess which one I would choose?

Please don't tell me you're an anti-vaxer. Otherwise I'd have to hate you. Whooping cough is making a comeback where I live because we have too many fucking idiots who think vaccines are evil.

You're probably right, which is one reason why piracy is still done primarily using physical media in China and Russia.
