I so fucking hate Actiblizz now. It actually makes me froth up black bile from the pits of Hell when I even think about them. If Bobby Nodick died of hemorrhoids tomorrow I'd break out the champagne.

So clearly you don't have a strong opinion on the subject?

Not surprised to see a slight uptick in subscribers. Anecdotally, I know a lot of people who largely skipped Pandaria that have resubbed to check out the how the story wraps up in Siege of Orgrimmar, or level new toons to play a different character as main in WoD. They'll get a bigger boost when they ship Warlords. (Rumor has it, this summer.)

I had grave doubts about MoP. I think I was like most people who said "Kung Fu Pandas and Pokemon! BAH!" ... so I didn't bother until I got bored with every other MMO out there. Then I actually tried the expansion ...

I'm a huge fan of good storytelling in any game. Ultima 7 is still my favorite game for that exact reason. And MoP was GREAT storytelling, at least as well as you can within that type of MMO structure. It quickly became one of my favorite expansions for WoW.

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.

What ... in anything that you quoted above ... said that WoW was innovative. All it said was that there was little in Vanguard that was innovative. And he's right; only thing that Vanguard did that was innovative was the diplomacy system.

Where Vanguard fell over was that IT DIDN'T WORK. It was barely Beta when it was released. I so wanted to like that game, but it failed on every single front. Nothing worked.

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.

Now that does hit the mark. Blizzard aren't about innovation. They are about taking the ideas that other people put up, polishing them to a fine shine and then putting those features into WoW. And it works for them ...

... but if you're going to look honestly at the history of MMOs, there is little that is truly revolutionary. Each MMO is merely an evolution of the next. They throw in the occasional new feature, but really there hasn't been a truly innovative MMO is many, many years. EQ may have been the last one.

But one thing I don't get is all this bitching and moaning about WoW. So ... it's still the biggest on the block. So what? Games that continually try to compete with WoW will get nowhere. They fail because they themselves try to shape up to the biggest kid in the schoolyard. So far the two games that I know that have deliberately TRIED not to compare themselves to WoW and just do their own thing has been EVE and GW2 ( ... well EVE doesn't care). And they are doing pretty well.

Time for people to get that WoW chip off their shoulder.

You could be thinking of Roshambo (Rosh) who hasn't been around in several years. He was a dumb fucker and a coward.

You could be right about that. It was a while ago and after running in with their mods who penalised those who were not constant naysayers. A good mod should be neutral and consider all opinions. They didn't have good mods.

When was the last time you actually visited NMA? They largely embraced New Vegas and one of their admins, Brother None, currently works at InXile on Wasteland 2. Most of the people are pretty cool. The problem with the place now is a couple of the forum moderators/admins are confirmed bigots and huge racists from the Netherlands who unfairly target normal level headed posters while giving a free pass to the most hate filled anti-Semitic scumbags you'll find anywhere on the internet. Because of them the forum activity dropped off the planet in the last year until Brother None was forced to step in. Whining about Interplay/Bethesda/whatever is so 10 years ago.

Admittedly the last time I was there was when they whined and complained that Fallout 3 was being made. The problem with the place then was a couple of the forum moderators/admins we so change averse, they unfairly target normal level headed posters while giving a free pass to the most other hate filled anti-Bethesda luddite scumbags. Unfortunately, from memory Brother None was one of them, or at least pandered to them.

It looks like nothing much changed.

You however sound like a sellout. Fun with perception 101.

Yeah? Screw you too! Personally I don't see saying to myself "I'll get this when they allow offline mode", and then following through with that as selling out.

Have fun in perception 101.

Ah ... Blues News! What happened to you? You really have become to PC gaming what that bitter and twisted "No Mutants Allowed" people are to Fallout. Two and a half pages of whining and not one positive comment. Reality check: You all sound like a bunch of self-entitled little bitches. GROW UP!

Well all I can say is FINALLY I can get to play this game as I wanted to play. It may be late in the day, but at least I now get to play.

But can they do anything about causing your vision to go all wonky after using it a short while, people report of needing up to a half hour to return to normal after using it a short time.

If you're talking about the feeling ill part, that apparently has to do with the latency between head movement and the image appearing on the screen. Even if you can't consciously perceive the lag, the brain still does unconsciously. The sweet spot is around 30ms. They are aiming from between 15ms and 20ms as the final target.

I can't believe how much money this has raked in with so little to show for it.

Many games are in development for a lot longer, but you never hear about them until they are within 6-12 months of publishing. This one was announced much earlier because it was crowd-sourced and needed backers.

I think they have accomplished quite a bit for where it is the development cycle.

So, what are the restrictions on R18+ games?

Sale is restricted to 18 years or older. Not a big deal.

I'm still at the original $37 tier. Can't seem to justify paying cash for other virtual goodies (ships) when most can be earned in-game.

I pledged when the i300 series became available. I snagged an i315. And $70? That's the price of a game here in Australia anyway ... so no biggie here.

I've been fighting the urge to splash out on a Constellation or a Freelancer. There's something about flying your very own "Firefly" that is appealing.

I know I'm probably in the minority here, but I'd love to have a client/server version of this that would allow you to play with friends. I don't want an MMO. Just a up-to-12-player game that I can get my usual group of teamspeak buddies into.
