How many whelp pets does that make now? A couple of dozen? They could've tried a bit harder to come up with something a bit more original.

Why bother? Read the comment below yours. That's the market they're selling to. They don't need to put forth any effort.

Well that and some small pissy-little box just doesn't cut it sitting beside the other three big-arse WoW CE Boxes

What??!?!?! You mean the next Elder Scrolls might not have Loading Doors? Haha.
Actually the thought of an Elder Scrolls or Fallout 4 using Tech 5 is pretty damn juicy.

Finally a decent compromise. An online verification platform that people will accept and a reasonable level protection for the developer. Sounds like a win/win to me.

Hopefully they can now migrate the rest of their old DRM across.

I loved the old Dungeon Keeper. If they can do the old game justice and add on some improvements (like invite players play heroes to trash your dungeon) then it could be a LOT of fun.

I would rate it better than Guild Wars though.

Alganon or the pay scheme?

Alganon. It's only ordinary. I found Guild Wars boring as bat shit.

Wait, you are telling me this piece of shit wasn't already free?
You paid $20 for the client but it sub-free, much like Guild Wars. As an MMO, it's pretty ordinary. Not bad. Just ordinary. I would rate it better than Guild Wars though.

One small problem, who is going to
make this one? Atari lost both Bioware and Obsidian. I would love a good Neverwinter as much as the next guy, but Atari's internal devs are absolutely horrible. Do they have any good studios left to make this?

As for 4th edition, that almost seems made to be played as a video game.

A 'cryptic' mention, eh? Nice, blue.

Is this not the worst kept secret in the industry at this point?

Yup. If memory serves me correctly, Cryptic hinted at making a NWN MMO around six months ago?

While everyone is pointing fingers at China let us pause and reflect on the fact that we have outsourced all our jobs to this country so corporations and already rich white businessmen can make maximum profits and get even richer.

Enjoy the economic crisis.

She's trying to say something - I just don't know what it is.

News Comments > Lord British Wins NCsoft Lawsuit
19. Re: Lord British Wins NCsoft Lawsuit Jul 30, 2010, 18:57 Talisorn
 
I gave of a little WOOT when I read this!!!

I have a hell of a lot more respect for Richard Garriot than NCSoft. In fact as far as I'm concerned NCSoft are the scum of all MMO companies, dropping a game when it begins to get a sniff of not bringing them a profit. Even the much hated SOE keep games on life-support and even actively support them while they have low populations. NCSoft will kill them dead ... even if those games are offered to be taken up by the community or other companies.

The only thing NCSoft seems capable of doing is bringing Korean grind games to the West ... and ALL have been goddamn woeful in my opinion. Most other Western based games they have closed down (CoX withstanding). Even GW I consider crap ... it may be cheap to play, but it's a McDonalds Happy Meal when you have a virtual smorgasbord decent restaurants to eat from.

Surprise, surprise, surprise. I pity anyone who gets attached to an NCSoft game. You can never rely on it being available. One thing I can say for Sony is that, despite how much hate there is for them in the MMO industry, the at least keep ges on life-support for the fans to keep playing. NCSoft will ditch a game as soon as it looks like faltering.

Can you hear that people?

That is the sound of Kotic and the other greedy corporate heyenas getting ready to tear that the cornered free online FPS gaming beast. It won't happen this year. It may not happen next year. But in five years time, free online gaming will become a rarity among AAA game releases.

Slowly as the greedy money-grubbing suits are being shooed away from embattled credit seekers, they are looking for new prey .... new untapped markets to plunder.

Now if only they'd do a NWN3. The kind that addresses all the issues where Obsidian failed ... and keep forstering the modding and small community groups setting up their own MMO-like campaigns was what kept the game running so long.

If THAT'S what they mean by small scale MMO ... BRING IT ON!

Favorite excerpt.

Eurogamer: What do you think about Bobby Kotick? He's a person.
Tim Schafer: He is. Well, allegedly. Ah... I don't know.

LOL! +2 Tim Schafer, you're my hero! :D

It doesn't matter how good it is or is not, they've created a twitch based game (good latency required) and provided no support for and are not selling to people outside the US or Europe. Sure they are the biggest markets, but they've lost out on everyone else.

As an Aussie gamer, these guys can go fuck themselves.

I feel sorry for anyone who feels that gaming may have a effect on their employment - if that happened in anyway which you could prove, you most likely could sue your way to never doing anything but gaming again.
I couldn't agree more. Any employer that has this kind of attitude against their employees do in their spare time if is not worth working for. It's sad if this is the norm in the US, because in the rest of the civilised world, employers DON'T have the right to dictate to their employees how to run their lives. Work to live. Not live to work.

the funny part after what happen to him is : now blizz employed don't have to show there true name , we do but not them

And there's the rub. Surly if THEY have a problem with it, then they can understand that THEIR CUSTOMERS have a problem with it. If there is any reason for it to be opt in, then that is it.

If they want people to use RealID, then use a carrot. Offer people something in return for opting into their scheme. But for those who don't want in ... don't force them.

Personally, I'm on the fence here. I see that it's going to cut down the zoo-like nature of the WoW forums. People will need to be careful what they say. But it's also going to fragment the community, as all sorts if "unofficial" forums will open up where people who want to can protect their anonymity. My concern is that the anti-RealID zealots will take the opportunity to seariously harrass people opting in and using official forums ... and you only need a couple of loony-toons to cause real trouble.

In-game, I don't see it as a major problem, as long as people are careful who they share their info with. I've chosen the people I share my ID with carefully; I only have done so with people I'm already on a first name basis with. But people need to be REALLY careful and not do it willy-nilly.

It's going to be intersting what happens in a couple of months after this has gone in. Interesting indeed.
