News Comments > Star Wars: The Old Republic Character Transfers
5. Re: Star Wars: The Old Republic Character Transfers Jun 12, 2012, 22:21 Tumbler
 
Hmm, let's see if my guy is eligible? Just gotta find that keyfob, ok found it. Logging in, and, no eligible characters. Hunh, I guess the server I was on is in ok shape? ...checking server status....dark reaper, light. Hunh...shouldn't that be a transfer eligible server?

Wait what is this:

Your account...

...must have an active subscription or game time remaining.
...must not be banned.

...I see. So I have to pay to use your "free" transfers and by the looks of it a transfer for me would not be free either. You guys are so awesome bioware. Keep it up.

News Comments > Ships Ahoy - Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion
16. Re: Ships Ahoy - Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion Jun 12, 2012, 20:55 Tumbler
 
Checking old emails, the $10 off pre order was for owners of trinity or diplomacy. No offer was made to owners of sins and entrenchment. (I believe) I have no emails regarding beta access being attached to anything besides preorders of rebellion. (pre purchases I assume, big difference) Doesn't seem like there was any offers made to the folks that bought the main game ages ago.

Seems odd they didn't reach out to Sins owners and there is no demo. $40 is asking a lot in my opinion and I'm more comfortable waiting at this point.

I'll go watch some Let's Play video's and see if I can't "try" the game that way.

Psh, $300? Maybe with some amazing games we've not seen yet they might get that price but right now $200 is asking a lot. I don't see much on the system that makes me care right now.

You better start investing in games.

News Comments > Diablo III Asia Downtime to Remove Duped Items

I feel like Blizzard is doing gamers a huge favor here. We could have slowly adjusted to the idea that always online gaming sucked over a decade or so but when you go and slap it onto a game like this that "everyone" plays then I think you just accelerate the process and now consumers will crucify the next company that comes up and says "Always Online!"

When are they going to add an offline mode? Can we just get an offline mode that lets you start at whatever difficulty you want, gives you gear appropriate for that level and then gives you decent drops so you can just enjoy the game? No login abilities on these characters, you're on your own for good.

Then you can go fuck with all this online bullshit to your hearts content. I despise authenticators. Tried using one for SWTOR and found it extremely annoying.

News Comments > 38 Studios Bankrupt; FBI Investigating
14. Re: 38 Studios Bankrupt; FBI Investigating Jun 7, 2012, 15:10 Tumbler
 
They don't have details on the nature of the inquiries, saying simply that Rhode Island State Police superintendent Col. Steven G. O'Donnell says that his agency, the FBI, the U.S. Attorney's office, and the Rhode Island attorney general "are working together to investigate activities that have recently come to light at 38 Studios.

I find it hard to believe this studio did anything that warrants this type of investigation. But I guess we'll see soon enough. By day they were appeared to be a normal video game company, but deep in the bowels of the building they were using a recovering drug addict and high school chemistry teacher to create and sell deadly drugs. They even wrote and produced a hit TV show based on this brazen criminal activity! Breaking Bad premiers in July! (That would be some awesome viral marketing)

Anyone else feel like "Gaming" has crossed a line into stupidity with this E3? (I don't mean Kinect/Motion/Wii U) I was still into a lot of what I saw last year but since then the road has seemed pretty rough (3DS, Vita, DRM escalating, DLC crap) and after watching bits and pieces of the MS and EA press conferences I just read highlights of Ubi's and didn't even both with Nintendo's. At this point is feels like the industry (AAA gaming industry and uses EA to present big titles) is turning into a used car salesman. All these games seem all too familiar. It's like no one thinks they have to try anything new and we'll just line up to buy copies of older games with a new coat of polish.

Thank God for Kickstarter and Indies. I'm far more satisfied with spending money in that area than I am with AAA gaming currently.

I'm not on board the hype train for this game. Graphics look impressive but the game seemed like it's just a heavily scripted story to walk through (more or less). I don't see what all the fuss is about. I can't be the only one that is looking for fun games as opposed to pretty ones...right?

Seemed like this game is going action action action. I never liked the rivet gun because it was like having an assault rifle and that seems to be the kind of gameplay they want now. Someone on reddit called it Gears of Space and that seems accurate.

It looked very pretty, I'll likely enjoy it, but I miss Dead Space.

Meh, it will be nice to be able to login and see things at least. Would be nice if they allowed people with lvl 50 characters to still login and play but not earn anything like valor or daily commendations.

I think my jedi is still under lvl 15, I guess I can boot it up and try and once 1.3 arrives.

News Comments > Gatherings & Competitions
4. Re: Gatherings & Competitions Jun 2, 2012, 13:54 Tumbler
 
For gamers the E3 is about as relevant as a 11th toe.. notice how the things that are *really* Interesting (News/Game Trailers/Announces) always come out a ways before or after the E3? That's because nobody sane wants to be drowned out by the PR FUD SPAM that always follows this corporation-only expo nowadays.

I think E3's very relevant today. Without this event most of these announcements would not be timed to give us this massive blowout of new stuff and the extra effort that goes into some of these things to get people interested.

I don't think attending the event is all that interesting anymore because the info comes out so insanely fast. It's not like in the past where you only get to read about it a month later or so. We're usually seeing the Keynote's live and the only thing you end up missing is behind closed door presentations which are generally something that they are not ready to show the public anyway.

The quality of video and gameplay they put out now is enough that I don't feel all that jealous of people who get to play the game at the event. The wait times and nonsense one has to put up with make the whole experience sound ridiculous.

I love all the news and trailers/gameplay clips we get because of E3. I can live with all the bullshit that goes along with it as long as I get to see the actual games as well. (gameplay clips, long, in HD, with someone talking to me just like they would someone who is going to write about it on a website.

Picked up Wing Commander 3, I don't think the voice packs and other expansions are part of the WC 1+2 package? Would rather just have the whole thing so I'll look for them to update that at some point.

News Comments > Activision and Infinity Ward Settle
12. Re: Activision and Infinity Ward Settle Jun 1, 2012, 00:19 Tumbler
 
It will be interesting to see what happens internally at Activision. The bits and pieces we're hearing have not made the CEO of Activision look like the professional you want running that company. The countersuit they tossed at EA claiming money lost from the loss of Infinity Ward staff was basically them saying how much money they lost by making this change. Add that to the settlement and something is going to happen internally.

I'm guessing stock holders are not going to turn a blind eye to this stupidity. Ah man, was worth a try, I mean we almost screwed those guys and got to keep all this money right? And now we don't have a talented studio in IW anymore...so that kind of sucks....but this is how you get shit down. This is video games. Let's go try and fire those lazy fucks at blizzard now!

I'm hoping we'll see Kotick step down at very least if not be publically "forced to resign". Hopefully the stock price will get hammered in the process. They might have another year still until the shit hits he fan because there doesn't seem to much to compete with against Blops 2 but come 2013 I don't think they're looking good. Respawn will hopefully have something by that time and who knows maybe medal of honor will finally find it's feet.

I guess we'll see what everyone has planned at E3.

The kills were a big part of the game series though, thats what save is for I actually disliked some adventure games habits that came out later and had ZERO deaths, basically held your hand.

The constant deaths are growing on me, they're definitely meant to be part of the experience. The seat belt thing had me laughing. HAahha, fool, you forget your seat belt, bet you thought you finally passed that area!!! Hahahah!

If they'd put in a less tedious save/load system I think it'd be fine. Is there a quick save? I'm not sure if that is even a good idea because it seems like you can miss stuff and with only one save you might be sol. Annoys the crap out of me to have to type something every time I want to save. Just give me a default name at least and bump it up each time I want to save.
