Still not sure what I'm going to do about TESO now we know they are going with $15 US a month subs. I might have paid $10 a month, if the game had been good, $15 is just too much now days.

Same here. I occasionally pay $10 for VIP for a month in LOTRO if I'm playing a lot (eg off work sick for a few days), but in general I stopped subbing for MMOs. For $15 a month standard TESO would have to be really good.

For FFXIV to keep my interest it will have to be good as well, but I already have a bucketload of friends in that game who are coming over from FFXI - a ready-made community and guild. That's another factor.

Best deal of the lot is GW2, which is totally free. Only problem is, I ran out of content in that one. Release an expansion already!
Same, sort of got tired of GW2 after leveling 3 toons. Now I'm playing The Secret World, which I got from Steam for $15 US and spent $10 more to get issue 7. Like GW 2 it's buy once, play for free. Considering you can get it for $15 or less, it's a great deal too.

It's actually got GW2 beat on several counts, where GW2 wins on dyes, TSW wins on clothing. There are literally 1000s of pieces of clothes, different colors and styles. You can be dressed in a business suit, beach clothes to Steampunk. Also cutscenes are pretty odd in GW2, though maybe it's intended as an artistic style, yet it always seem sort of cheap to me. TSW on the other hand has much higher quality cutscenes, fully voiced and 3D. The animations are a bit weak but still a multitude better than GW2. Imo, the DX 9 graphics (since dx 11 really isn't working well) are much more detailed and it's great to have a modern setting for once. Every major mission (100s) has a (skippable, if you wish) cutscene and each one is story based/related.

TSW really does have some issues with gameplay, mostly because there are so many choices it's easy to get overwhelmed. The devs try to say "you can't make a mistake" when referring to spending points. It stems from the fact that if you play enough, you can get every ability and skill. This is really disingenuous, since you can easily spread yourself too thin and ending up with an unfixable (no reset) weak build, at least until your higher level. Also, after the first area, the difficulty scales pretty fast. This causes many to do the first area twice, for the extra skills and abilities. It's really important to know which build your going to use from the start. It really helps to spend an hour looking at builds at the official forums, fan sites or asking in chatz.

The dungeons are pretty nice no real trash mobs, you move from boss to boss. Now some bosses summon adds but it's mostly to mix things up, with different play styles and difficulty.

Personally don't see how you can go wrong with TSW, especially if you like modern settings and killing zombies! Zombie

Even if they did fix the majority of issues, the subs will probably prevent me from ever trying it. I've been playing The Secret World for about two months now, still having fun, though the combat is extremely unbalanced.

As KS asked about Pet Classes, I tried looking around on the main site but their description of the classes was just vague crap. As an example Conjurer seems to be a Healer instead of umm... a Conjurer.

Still not sure what I'm going to do about TESO now we know they are going with $15 US a month subs. I might have paid $10 a month, if the game had been good, $15 is just too much now days. The biggest problem, TES are good due to the mods. Now days Bethesda vanilla games are console first designed. Especially the gameplay is weak, since it's console centric. The NPCs are often horribly voiced, with pedestrian dialog, story and no character depth. These guys despite constantly being called out on the weakness of their dialog, refuse to hire a real writer. They pay A list actors to read B grade (at best) dialog.

Blue, don't you guys have Deferred Adjudication? I.e. pay the fine, no bad behavior for 6 months and it stays off your record. You can file it yourself, btw.

Guess I'm in the minority, I didn't like Argo at all. Nothing personal against Affleck but his acting has never been convincing to me. No idea why he keeps getting super hero parts

Question is, are they going to be stupid and keep trying to compete in hardware with Apple, Sony, et al. Or will they be smart and go back to their core competencies?
stupid is as stupid does, and stupid does do.

Beat me to it. TFS was pretty damn good back in the day, with mission base objectives.

I still can't believe some execitive at fox didn't lose his job for the idiot move of canceling Sarah Connor Chronicles for Dollhouse.

At least to me, it's the $15 US monthly fee for subscription that causes the failure. It's just too much, that pricing model is at least 14 years old.

I'm betting $10 US price mark would increase the subscription base of most if not all mmogs by 30% to 50%. I don't see a single company trying it, out right. I've seen some like LotRO try it as a discount for 3 months, which does seem to be successful.

Great franchise, pathetic console gameplay design as usual, from square enix and eidos. Until people stop buying at release, they will keep making it.

Too bad people don't wait till the first 50% off sale, that would send an amazing message.

Has there been a more disappointing president in recent history? And no, Nixon and Dubya don't count because you knew things were going to be bad from the outset. Hope and change my ass! Guess he meant he hoped we didn't know how bad the changes for the worst would be.

And why the fuck is Clapper not being charged with perjury? How in the hell does that work? Lying under oath is totally cool now?
Exactly, from hope and change to war criminal and treason. Now future generations have two administrations to convict. Oh and at least one director of nsa.

25. Re: Mad Max Trailer Jul 15, 2013, 17:43 Acleacius
 
I'm hoping Avalanche Studios cares enough about the quality of their game to hire a real writer. I guess they could just be making a similar action game to Just Cause, in the Mad Max world.

I would prefer an RPG, something with more depth and custom made Mad *avatars with character generation, at the start of the game. They could probably save tons of money, having a silent protagonist. Instead spend all their money on great writer and NPC voice actors. Also of course make it Coop, like Dead Island and they would have a major success financially and critically.

Dishonored please stop making Bone Charms random and let us add charm points to our desired build, just as Runes. Nothing like playing Stealth and getting crappy tanking or damage charms to ruin your game.


omg'er can't wait to see the totally awesome, new super duper doom 4, doom 5 and doom 6000 engines in a game. It's like reality but better!
