I love future-based RTS's.. but I found that trailer to look clunky and those animations were ungainly.

100% honest, I had no idea this game had come out. I am a gamer through and through, but this game made such little impact, I never knew it had actually come out.

News Comments > The Old Republic Lead Designer: "We Are Looking At Free-to-Play"
17. Re: The Old Republic Lead Designer: Jun 14, 2012, 22:07 ColoradoHoudini
 
I enjoyed it from 1-50.. some times.. but it was still every bit of the same MMO structure. The space combat was on rails and I felt confined even in space. They launched with an Auction House that wasn't very good at all (and that's being nice) and compared to a game like Rift, that seemingly came from a no-name house in Trion (I only see 3 games from them, and only 1 is live)..SWTOR looked like amateur-level gaming. How did SWTOR come out and not even match the current crop of MMO features? All that money and we got fantastic voice acting I know I eventually skipped through.

Oh well, maybe in another 5 years when someone else comes out with a SW MMO.. it's have TRUE space combat, transportation freedom, a better AH interface, and have more innovations and less cookie cutter MMO mechanics.

Anyone have any impressions on this game at all? I just can't see myself getting invested in any other MMO that isn't GW2 at this moment (hopefully planetside 2 later)

News Comments > Guild Wars 2 Beta This Weekend
22. Re: Guild Wars 2 Beta This Weekend Jun 6, 2012, 21:42 ColoradoHoudini
 
At a scant level 8.. I recall a dynamic event where some NPC's had me go into a cave.. explore.. kill, whatever. I come out, and the cave guys are coming from behind me. The NPC kicked off an event that had us drive the guys back, and kill their leader. Cool.
The second time through there, the same event kicked off.. this time, we didn't go in with the NPC's.. they died.. the mobs built a small shack area outside of the cave, bolstered their defenses there, and the next pack of NPC's had a different event for us.

If i weren't going to be out of town this week for an event (Tough Mudder) .. I would be balls deep in this game once again!
DAMNIT!
At least i have two coworkers that are going to play and give me the full report on changes.

I wanted to give the Mesmer and Engy a good look this weekend..i need more time to figure out which is going to be my main! (Elementalist, thus far).

I absolutely loved the last beta.. loved it.
-I might get to play for a few hours Sunday night

Having chosen not to purchase Diablo III, I feel no need to complain about it. Every day I read about it however, I find myself looking forward to Torchlight II and (someday) Grim Dawn, all the while feeling grateful for my decision not to give Blizzard my money.

i feel exactly the same as you, and not in an elitist way either.. just happy I skipped a game that so many I trust, aren't exactly thrilled with.. and in fact, are rather "meh" about it.

I will say.. aside from WoW in my glory days there (your opinion will vary).. Rift was by far and away the bet MMO experience I had. I felt the game did just about everything right.
I was an end-game raider though, so I always had stuff to do. From the Expert Rifts, to Raid Rifts, to Raid dungeons..to world events. I left the game due to guild issues (our guild got consumed by another guild in a hostile takeover).. but if I found another good guild to play with, I'd definitely come back.

In fact.. if Planetside 2/GW 2 bores me around the time this expansion comes out.. I'm jumping back on the Rift train. It really was/is a fantastic game.

(I missed the one-man chronicle stuff.. and whatever else was added after the first -added in- raid ..the one with the portal to get in)

Oh if only this could be modded.

I had to explain PC modding to my gaming, 22 year old coworker today, based on a conversation around this very title. i spun tales about how we, the community, used to be able to mod games, and make our own maps and how some games/sub-genres of games existed because of the modding world.. all the good we did, and how the greedy machine has tried to take that away from us.

SWTOR brought absolutely NOTHING new to the table.. it really was plain.

Looking at Rift, which was older and had less money/experience.. that game turned out 2x better than TOR.
GW2 looks like it will set the bar impossibly high as well (from what I have experienced)

News Comments > Diablo III Hacking?
235. Re: Diablo III Hacking? May 22, 2012, 20:53 ColoradoHoudini
 
My coworker (btw, I am a Systems Security Engineer for the govt (CISSP), and have been doing security for decades) started up Wireshark, and then D3.. he was telling me how easy it was to hijack his session..the session ID floating around out there.. and then we got into the 2 step process it took to reverse engineer his authenticator.

Now granted, we have a more knowledgeable background than the layperson.. but if we showed you guys how much is out there to be found.. and how after a few minutes you too could see this stuff.. you can bet your ass the hackers are even further along with just a tiny bit more effort.

While everything is hackable, what's going on with D3 right now is rather troublesome. --for the record, he stopped playing last night after witnessing what he saw.
