They probably haven't given a date because they don't want people to stop spending money. Of course, every Sale veteran stopped spending weeks ago in anticipation.

Yup, i spit on these so called "sales" over the past few days. Why don't I just burn my money too!

I think the delivery expectation of Dec 2013 is keeping me from spending my money. It's awesome that it's getting funded but I think I want to wait and see on this one. They'll probably offer a beta soon or something that makes me regret not jumping on this but that timeline gives me concern.

PS4, Xbox 720 "will fail if they let retail dictate game pricing".

Assuming they mean a price point high enough to give retail a cut of the revenue then I'd say that is accurate. Selling games digitally for $20-$30 would probably help the gaming industry in a big way.

The new game prices are offensive. Competition should be driving the prices down but publishers are just chopping up what you get in the retail boxes and asking for more money for those parts to somehow offset the greater number of people that are waiting to buy until the price comes down or buying used when the real value of the product has time to bring the price down.

The only games I'm buying new at launch these days are $30 and under. Sins Rebellion (special offer for Sins owners), Civ V, techically I bought diablo 3 at launch but that was more about witnessing first hand the whole experience that is Shopping 3. (inside joke? There was an alternate title for Diablo 3...)

News Comments > World of Tanks Plans, Wargaming.net Rebranded
5. Re: World of Tanks Plans, Wargaming.net Rebranded Jul 3, 2012, 14:11 Tumbler
 
I've been logging in to play a few matches each night and the game really needs to work on trying to make the matches fair. It's far to common to be dropped into a match where you're just going to get blown away. That might be acceptable if when you perform well in those matches the game rewards you substantially but in my experience it doesn't. I think the best I've been able to get is approx 1000 xp and maybe 15k credits? Typically I get 200xp and 8k credits, but it costs me 1k to repair.

I'm in a tier 4? tank and the next tank upgrade is at 12,500 xp and 410,000 credits. I'll hit the xp needed soon enough but the credits needed is going to take an obscenely long time. I have the valentine which I think earns money a bit faster but again if you can't kill enemy tanks you're kind of SOL.

Still...it can be fun...and it's free...

I'd love to see an offline emulator for D3 because that could hopefully allow players to mod the game so you can play at any difficulty level and give you appropriate starting characters so those levels are fun.

I'd also love to see a mod that forces loot drops to be specific to your class. It sucks how much loot drops that is for other classes. The game would be more fun if loot dropped only for your class instead of expecting you to go sell everything not for you gathering gold so you can go find the loot you want in the AH.

News Comments > World of Warplanes Trailer

I am confused why they are trying to make a ww2 dog fighter game. I played warbirds and aces high a while back and today it feels like that ship has sailed. If I'm going to pull out a joystick and fly planes I feel like there needs to be more reason than grinding gear on random planes like you do in world of tanks.

The one thing world of tanks has going for it is that it's easy to jump in and play with a mouse and keyboard. The matches start up very quickly, and you're in combat shortly after. That was not my experience with Warbirds and Aces High, you'd spend a lot of time just taking off and traveling...but that is the nature of the game I guess... it could be fun if they just dropped dozens of people going head to head in the air and pow, right in the middle of a massive dogfight.

Wow, $175,000. Wow. I wonder what the item was they were using that they jacked the price up so high?

Verizon price changes revolutionary? Well they sure stopped me from upgrading my phone and signing a new contract...is that revolutionary? I might buy an used phone going forward and use that but now I guess I'll go downgrade my voice minutes since we're not useing them and I'll just pay you guys less!

Revolutionary!

Hunh, this guy sounds like he just threw up his hands and said, you're right, I screwed up, I'm a huge hypocrite. I should have warned the people that this was coming but I didn't and, man, that sucks hunh? And I'm ok with Government helping me, but not other people. I'll stand up and fight to stop other people getting any help but if I'm offered help? Oh I'll take that money and ask for more!

Certainly begs the question of what the hell the point of the persistent internet connection was. So far I don't see a single benefit whatsoever, it's been nothing but downsides for the consumer.

Are you kidding? It's made sure that every single person who buys Diablo 3 will only be able to play it while connected to the auction house! That was the point all along! There was never anything that would benefit paying customers, this was all a system designed to keep you connected to their servers so you'd use the auction house. If they let anyone play offline think of how many people would do that and never use the auction house!

This is Diablo 3: Auction House! The auction house is the game, the part where you are clicking and stuff dies, that is just a mini game to let you get resources to play the auction house!

News Comments > World of Tanks Patched
12. Re: World of Tanks Patched Jun 21, 2012, 12:42 Tumbler
 
I played a bit last night, it's fun, but not consistently. I still feel like i'm comically underpowered in the matches I'm in. Even in a tank destroyer most of my targets end up laughing at me.

I'm a TANK DESTOYER, and tanks laugh at me! It's possible i've been away long enough that many peopel are just above me and the only games available to join are the ones above me but then can't you at least give me some bonus's if I happen to do well? I remember one match went very well and I ended up with 6 kills or something crazy like that, I got decent xp but nothing crazy. Another match I end up surrounded by heavily armored tanks and somehow I manage to kill one, shot him I don't know how many times and I think OMG I got one! They'll give me tons of XP for killing someone so high above me!

Nope. Just a pitful few hundred xp. Oh you killed someone, here's some pennies.

It doesn't seem like they want the game balanced to be fun for all. Feels more like I"m just there to get blown up.

Meh, I don't think this is much of a shock considering everything going on. Not sure why anyone thought this company wasn't in sad shape before this. I think they have a long way to go before they look secure. Maybe if they can get Darksiders 2 out and it's a huge success things will start to look up. Until then I'll just assume they're in a lot of trouble.

It would be a significant leap if you offered such cutting edge features like disabling voice chat.

Hopefully that will be an option on the PS4! (not that I'd ever buy it...)

News Comments > MechWarrior Online Founders Packages on Sale
24. Re: MechWarrior Online Founders Packages on Sale Jun 20, 2012, 00:05 Tumbler
 
Will be interesting to try this. I guess they have to charge for something... World of Tanks was fun in the lower levels but as I moved up into the higher tiers things quickly got lop sided and I felt like way too many tanks were just laughing at my shots. I was a fucking tank destroyer for christs sake and I was trying to find tanks weak enough for me to even stand a chance. Most of the time I had to wait for someone else to fire so that I wouldn't be one shot killed the instant I fired on someone. Maybe I just picked the wrong army track to follow or something.

I hope they keep things balanced, I'm fine with exclusive mechs as long as they're not simply better in every respect. Time will tell.

Assuming that keyboard is detachable or better yet flexible so you can just fold it back and hold the thing with one hand that looks cool. My dad won't stop talking about wanting a tablet with a fold out keyboard like that, I'm not sure why he wants a separate keyboard but that man will not stop asking for something like this.

Bingo, there you go, now stop asking about a tablet with a keyboard!

News Comments > Civilization V: Gods & Kings Diary
6. Re: Civilization V: Gods & Kings Diary Jun 18, 2012, 18:05 Tumbler
 
Just curious: what's simplified that you don't like? They got rid of health and per-city happyness, but per-empire happyness and building maintenance lead to an interesting juggling act. Are you referring to that, or something else?

I'm curious about this as well because the happiness stuff can get insane very quickly. You go to war and you don't have a ton of happiness you'll find yourself getting screwed once your empire is really unhappy. -33% to combat strength and suddenly that slight advantage is gone and your only chance is to stand on defense until you can settle those cities down.

News Comments > Origin Sale; EA Calls Service "A Huge Success"

I've uninstalled Origin and simply don't want to play BF3 enough to reinstall that service...so A Huge Success? I don't think so. I think the BF3 premium thing you offer is pretty hilarious. How many people already own Back to Karkland (or whatever?) and those guys don't get a better price? For most I would guess that the pack is $50 for 4 "expansions" yet they lose to treat it like it's 5. Look at all that content! Some of it you already own but you can buy it again!

Oh nice! I just decided to take the day off tommorrow to catch up on some gaming, Starhawk and Max Payne 3, and I totally forgot this was coming out tomorrow! Picked it up on green man gaming for $23 or $24 can't remember exactly. They gave me a better offer too, total of 25% off (over my 20% off) via email but I didn't want to go to the trouble of canceling the initial order so I could repurchase for 5% less.
