"Sony says no to money." Well I guess that means they don't have faith in their product standing up to scrutiny.

The idea that all games that never get a pc port is because they aren't confident in the quality is a bit delusional.

Rip verant. Their only particularly good game was the the first but I will remember them for all but inventing a genre I love(yeah merdian and uo came first but the vast majority of mmos are based on everquest).

And really rip since if they were owned by any other company but sony it would have been shut down a long time ago. If eqnext isn't a big hit either they will shut down or it will become another rare.

EverQuest balancing of classes early on consisted of seeing what classes were popular and nerfing them until people didn't like to play them anymore and moved on to something else.

Be fair, class and balance did not go together early on. Remember how necros could be afk feign death and their pet would kill mobs classes like warriors would struggle to kill for xp? Yeah.....

Glad to see they are working on one of the biggest problems with this game, it was way too fucking hard. They had the right idea of training you to not stand in fire from the earliest lvls but the horrible tutorial never actually taught you anything. Don't even get me started on the stunbreak mechanic.

Another was right before release they made instances a lot harder. To the point there was literally no point of doing them, not to mention a lot of them being hidden. this meant that people hit max and never grouped before and just got raped.

I don't think you guys quite understand how easy these old survivor horror games would be without tank controls. The game was designed with the idea that you can't quickly turn around and aim. I suggest you put the game on the lowest setting to simulate non tank controls.

Last summer my mother was in the market for a pc. Was thinking of building it until I realized I would have to do all the tech support. Even still I was under the assumption that pre built had a huge mark up. To my surprise I found a pc for only 50 dollars more then if I ordered all the parts from newegg. Add on the free 2 years of support though and it was a no brainer.

To be fair there was a sale going on which is what I have been hearing. Pc manufacturers actually have sales nowadays so as long as you don't buy from dell building your own doesn't always mean saving a ton of money anymore.

agreed that the jump to IV was very monumental, but 6 years is more than enough time to do something different. all these games looks just like last-gen, using last-gen engines, it's depressing. especially considering the gen lasted longer than any other gen is history, we were due for a real bump in fidelity that has not come... this reminds me of SF2 to SF3 though, virtually identical-looking games imo.

and thank you SO MUCH for the BlazBlue tip, i knew that it was made by the same developers as Guilty Gear, but i had no idea that there were any released on PC. this will tide me over nicely until Guilty Gear releases in 2 days

Sadly all the console makers were so scared about the future of consoles they made very weak consoles that they didn't take a huge hit on unlike the usual case. Which is why you can have a price war like whats going on right now 1 year on while the ps3 costs almost as much as the new consoles and rarely goes on sale.

I gotta say I think you are not remembering things correctly because street fighter 3 look light years better then 2. Not to mention it's animations have yet to be beaten in a 2d fighter.

It's sad how little hype is surrounding tekken 7 compared to street fighter 5. But then at least capcom changes the game every once and a while.

Despite some negative reviews, I thought Origins was excellent. I think the trick for me enjoying the Batman games is letting enough time pass between playing each game, so the formula feels fresh again.

I think it's just the batman games are suffering from the same thing that happened to spiderman. When a spiderman game came out for the ps everyone was amazed that it was good, and made you feel like playing actually playing him for the first time. A successful sequel followed but after that but everyone was bored of the gimmick.

The next batman game needs to be seriously different or it will be met with the same shrug as when a new spiderman game come sout.

It's hard to take a award show seriously when it's possible for something that's been out for less then month to win. And useless categories like most anticipated..

please bring back parrying. not sure who plays SF anymore but I feel like they really compress the skill level on this game.

I don't know man. I love 3rd strike as much as the next guy but you got to admit the ease of starting off in sf4 and 3 is night in day. You could say it dumbed the game down but the popularity of sf3 doesn't even come close to sf4.

...Though this *is* Street Fighter we're talking about. In another year, there will probably be a Super Street Fighter V, which has a bunch of new characters and be on every system.

...Not that that makes it any better.

to capcoms credit the vast majority of updates to the street fighter series made them a better game.

You have to remember kids are constantly being born into the world and LOL is videogames for retards, that's why it's successful. The same way MMO's are successful, they cater to people who can't play videogames to save their lives and hence are the lowest common denominator in terms of intelligence. Reflexes and intelligence are correlated, that's why games like Descent, fast paced FPS games like quake, the masses just can't handle them.

haha oh wow. what the fuck did I just read?

I get the impression epic is almost like valve. They are more focused on something besides making games(valve steam, epic the engine itself to sell) that they are no rush to release a game. Could also be like what happened with the last UT where the dev team obviously got bored and focused on gears more. They eventually shoved out another UT but it was obvious there was 0 passion.

I wonder if this will stop the people that keep saying every year wow is dead because all their friends quit? Probably not.

And I don't see wow going down too much, after all mmos are a dying genre in the west and I think everquest next is the only big budget western mmo in development. After playing the meh at best eq landmark beta and knowing soe's track record, I really doubt wow will have much competition for the next 5 years.

RIP a genre that had so much potential.
