Trial accounts? Not sure that there actually were very many of them. Some might quit playing after their first "free" month however.

Yeah, accounts on their free month is what I meant by "trial accounts". What happens in the next two or three months with respect to membership will be crucial to the true success of AoC. I speak as an outside observer, having no interest in AoC.

OK, so there are 700k accounts created. How many of those are trial subscriptions that won't be continued?

Fuck Kotaku and all the idiots that buy into that crap.

I've been saying this for so long and I've been ridiculed for it many times. At least someone here agrees with me. Kotaku and its ilk are pathetic. It's just like EA bashing... I was doing it and getting flamed for it long before it became fashionable.

1. You didnt have to group
2. Skills were on rings (ie the name signets etc) so 8 was it, and it was in no way limiting.
3. Its sad a game like Diablo which is another grinder buries news from a far more advanced title.

1. Yeah, you could group with Henchmen, but at points in the game the Henchmen were woefully underpowered and you basically had to group. If you couldn't find a group for one of those zones, you were screwed. Then if you did find a group, most of the time they were full of kiddies who'd intentionally botch the mission if you wouldn't give them one of your drops. Maybe they changed the Henchmen since last time I played.

2. Uh... signets were a type of skill you can choose, along with spells, etc. I don't think signets have anything to do with the limitation.

3. That's just like, your opinion, man.

It is not an experience for everyone. Background noise can block some of the quieter passages, and those who use the CD to rip files for an iPod will find that Mudcrutch sounds quieter than other bands.

That's why you load Rockbox onto your iPod and use ReplayGain.


Students now avoiding IT degrees, despite good job prospects

Maybe because we don't want to sit in front of a computer for 12+ hours a day doing what amounts to computerized menial work? Not to mention the lack of overtime pay, outsourcing, obsession with useless certs... All these reasons and more are why I switched majors from CS to a natural science.

Ditto, this is a very bad combination. Servers full of people wanting to play Pyro, and servers full of noobs. Don't even bother touching the game until next weekend.

Not just that, but IMO Valve went overboard with the Pyro buff. The damage dropoff was put in for a good reason, and removing it completely was just stupid. They should have just toned it down instead.

TF2 is painful to play right now... I'm not touching that until the Pyro-fest calms down.

I want to play this again, but one of my Diablo 2 CDs exploded in my drive back in the day. I guess I'll just wait for the Blizzard store download.

If I'm not mistaken, EVE Online had a bit of a rocky start and has now grown into a very large MMO.

You are mistaken. EVE is a tiny niche title.

Maybe if it starts getting glowing reviews and have a couple more episodes out, I'll give it another chance.

Of course it will get glowing reviews, it's Penny Arcade. They could slap their name on a pile of shit and gamers would eat it up.

It's hard to take a list like this seriously when the site it appears on gets "its" wrong in the title banner.

And your resorting to vague Latin references against my argument

You think ad hominem is a vague Latin reference? Go to school, child.

You lived a truly sheltered life if you truly believe that, You said that statement just to project yourself higher than everyone else.

So basically you have no real counter to his argument, and you have to resort to ad hominem attacks and appeals to popularity.
