Come on, There was little that was innovative about Vanguard. It would NEVER have competed with Wow to any extent, even if SOE had managed to fix it. Brad is all about having restricted classes so much so that you are running around looking for a specific class to do a dungeon. That is backwards, not innovative in any way. Anyone who thinks the new game will be anything other than that is high on something. Reality says his new game will be a flop.

WoW, innovative...seriously? Despite being pushed out a year early, with a 1/10th of Blizzard's budget and manpower, Vanguard surpassed in almost every category of innovative gameplay and design.

WoW/blizzard, isn't about innovation aamof they are about refining and simplifying what had been done before, with a massive budget. They constantly ripped off ideas from Vanguard, not least of which Flying mounts. WoW was about simplicity, not only in system requirements but hand holding solo gameplay. WoW was as much about socializing as it was a game. I see WoW's achievements as introducing simplistic PC gameplay to the masses.

Surprised to hear any one say the classes were restrictive. You sound like your confusing the need to group, to complete an Open World Dungeon, verses being able to solo a dungeon . Iirc, Vanguard had more than 100 unique hand crafted, large open world dungeons at release, Wow had nothing close. Vanguard was about being challenged and team work. In Vanguard, you can't just run in an spamming your win key. You die, forced to do a corpse run and lose XP if you didn't get your corpse back.

The reason people constantly complain about all mmogs are the same or people are burnt out is because of WoW. The death of innovation and challenge.

Yeah McQuaid dumped a stinker on SOE with Vanguard.

Morons are still giving that guy money too:
Pathetic: Raise more Dope Money
Holy shit, tyvm for that link, looking forward to being (continuing?) a moron! Party2

Despite the fact that Vanguard was pushed out 6 months to a year early, it was one of the most innovative mmogs to date. They've been constantly copied by newer mmogs, whether it was unique classes, boats, flying mounts, housing or Card Deck System.

McQuaid isn't the first person who was overcome by alcohol or drugs and won't be the last. He is talented, been behind some of the best and most innovative mmog designs in the industry. Just like all those other talented designers in the video.

They can't make a good innovative game, nor can they keep a good innovative game going.

The definition of incompetence?

Looks pretty cool, hopefully it will play decently on a PC, since I don't play console action games. I've never played any of the ass creed games. Iirc, from back in the day, they were console ports, with some craptastic ubi drm.

Quick test, how long after you eat does it take before it starts getting sore? While you sleep on the opposite side, do you prop up your wounded elbow/arm with a pillow, while you sleep? Eating foods that cause swelling, can in turn cause irritation while sitting or sleeping. Preventing the joint from seating/resting correctly/naturally.

In case your not familiar with foods causing or reducing swelling; Type in a food here Nutritional Data . The Inflammation section is top-right underneath Caloric Ratio and above Amino Acid Spectrum. Higher positive number is very good for you, higher the Negative the more swelling. An example of Almonds no salt, you'll see 276 anti-inflamatory. Obviously I used 'no salt', since I know you guys know better (trying to prevent swelling, not to mention High Blood pressure) than to add/eat salt! Bat

It works best to try each food separately, since literately one food in a stew could be the culprit. You'll have to play with it a bit to get the hang of it. An example instead of trying to type Apple, your better off, trying Apple raw. Otherwise it will pull up everything under the sun with Apple in it. Even though the Database is far from complete, there's still a lot.

Is this pvp only or are there server settings, which only allow Coop/PvE and no pvp ganking?

He could have left and texted outside instead of deciding his own convenience overrode that of everyone else in the theater. Previews or not, he was being very inconsiderate of everyone who wasn't him. And by saying that I am not condoning what happened to him. Homicide is obviously not an appropriate response to someone who is being rude, nor is violence of any kind. Its sad so many people feel their indignation warrants lethal or violent responses.
Everyone?
/sociopathicly, everyone?
or
/sarcasm, everyone?

Yes text messaging during loud ass previews, so intense they encapsulate the majority of action, music and story elements, in two minute clips. Surely their 3 year old, had some loud ass punk music playing, which was bleeding over previews.

Inconsiderate, fatherless, 3 year old.

It was still during the previews and clearly not against policy, since he didn't have management support in the form of a manager.

Sounds like a classic "stand your ground" case in Florida, i.e. a psychopath with a gun, kills an innocent. Thankfully, it's not the gun's fault (guns are people too!).

I still haven't played Mafia 2, even though I was a huge fan of Mafia. I just didn't trust those guys after the hostile takeover (of sorts) in between the two games. There is a pretty big difference between the two according to Metacritic. I probably should pick it up sometime on sale, maybe the summer 75% off sale.
Mafia 2 is absolutely gorgeous to look at (they recreated the time period perfectly), and has moments of story-driven gameplay greatness similar to that of the first game. Unfortunately there are a few bad choices (the prison chapter, long sections of driving, poor melee combat, an abrupt ending, lack of open world activities) that brought it down from the classics podium.

I still thoroughly enjoyed it, having loved Mafia 1 so much.
I do wish there was more reason to explore the city other than just playing the story, though.

One thing you can count on still from 2K? Mafia 3 will look stunning, and mimic it's time period to a T

Pretty much my exact thoughts as well. Not a classic, but still a lot of fun. Recommended, for those that didn't try it.
Gtk, thanks siapnar and nin

I was lucky to have Mafia before, the legal struggle caused it to be taken off Steam.

PC Gaming > Far Cry 3 save system annoyances

We hateis uplays

There is a way, what I do is create a manual system on all the console games ported to PC. Just find your save game directory, in this case: C:/Program Files (x86)/Ubisoft/Ubisoft Game Launcher/Save games/ <long code>/46

Make a save before a mission, your interested in like overthrowing a base or main story. Then copy it to a newly made folder (I usually use a date system, in case I get distracted by a new game and come back to it) 1.9.2014 . The saves look like this '1.save', once again I identify them, so in this case I could rename this one to '1.save.pre Dr. Earnhardt'. Then anytime you want to replay it, just delete the 1.save in the real directory, copy over '1.save.pre Dr. Earnhardt' and rename it to 1.save . It works for any of these console to PC games, Metro 2033 was another bad one.

Excellent idea about the water, I'm glad to see common sense is possible across party lines.

There are not consequences, for political corruption and lobbing, despite direct correlations of egregious harm to state and nation.

At every level, If Another Country Was Doing This To Our Kids, Wed Be At War.
