So 51 posts and not one of you has bought these new versions and posted impressions. Just a whole lotta yammering about nostalgia.

I've seen this headline like 3 or 4 times since this afternoon. And it is misleading.

He is in negotiations, yes, but has not been signed. It's all contingent upon the Sherlock production adjusting their entire schedule to accommodate the filming of Doctor Strange.

I'm not sure why women think he is good looking, but whatever, I'm not female. To me he looks kinda creepy, like in a Patrick Bateman American Psycho kinda way.

If this was HD upgraded versions of the games, I'd be all over them.
We'll see how these look and at what resolutions after they are released.

One thing I've learned of my purchases of old games...I don't play them, or maybe for an hour when I first get them, but that's about it. Dungeon Keeper 2 being the exception.

I bought the first one on PS3 after all the hype about it. Personally I found the voices extremely annoying and the gameplay was rather boring and repetitive.

That WoW dating video is at least 5 yrs old and I'm sure was posted back then.

More i play the game (non demo) more i like it. I think its just switching my Civ5 perspective to the subtle changes. That said those subtle changes once you get use to them are pretty good. Enjoying it, and i know it'll only get better. One of the major reasons why i bought it is that i know that the expansions, patches, and mods to come will only add to it. Firaxis knows their TBS

This.

From what I've been reading on forums, the game isn't that worth buying if you were expecting something much different from Civ 5. A shame, I'll wait for the inevitable GOTY edition.

Huh, on the gaming podcast I listen to they said, "If you're expecting this to be like Civ 5, you'll be disappointed."

Well, TotalBiscuit seems to have my opinion. Either way I'm not entirely convinced this is worth the asking price right now.

So you share his contradictory opinions?

He basically likes the game, and says so repeatedly. But then he sums it up at the end saying he doesn't like it that much because it's not Civ5 and it's not Alpha Centauri.

You can turn on Quick Combat for no animations as well as Movement, to make turns go faster. Quick Game settings...and I get some people really want to do the Huge maps with large number of civs, and while I have played those...I prefer smaller (faster) games. 1v1 up to 5v5 or so. The Duels are fun and is a good way to quickly get through some games going for different victories to learn how things can play out.

Agreed that vanilla Civ V was rather weak. The expansions really made it a great game (particularly the G&K xpac). While I had played Civ 3 and Civ IV very briefly I could never get into them. Playing PBEM games of Civ V is what really got me into it and I ended up playing the game far far more, even solo, than I ever expected.

I can't wait for Beyond Earth. Here's to another 600hrs over the next 3+ years...

Lastly, although they've sold 7M copies, remember that a lot of those were at $2 or $3 each, or in bundles. Still, it's a decent amount of cash even at those low prices.

Indeed. And how many of those copies are from when it was free on PSN for PS+ subs?

It's a great a achievement for sure. But when the games have been practically given away in several Humble Bundles as well...

Don't care about the The Evil Within, Shadows of Mordor or Alien Isolation.

Just give me Civ Beyond Earth and give it to me now, not in 2 weeks!

Still making posts with no substance and just insults because you have absolutely nothing to back up your bullshit?

Just stop. Nothing you've posted was worth reading, none of it was smart, and almost all of it was factually incorrect. My responses weren't for your benefit, because you're clearly incapable of understanding the most basic concepts anyway. It was for everyone else to see how wrong and full of shit you are. With that achieved, we're done here.

To show that I'm full of shit, you'd have to post something that actually contradicts anything I've said. You spout numbers, but have nothing to back them up. I can rattle off numbers I've claimed to have read by people in the know, none of it means jack shit without an actual source. Nor should anyone ever listen to "facts" from someone as bitter and full of hate as you, that still claims to play a game they loathe.

The debate on premium ammo in WoT has been going on for years and will continue to go on. With so called knowlegable people doing all sorts of "tests" for their "proof"; all of which is extremely flawed. Some say premium ammo is worth 5%-10% extra damage. Some say it's 10%-25%. Neither number is significant enough to warrant "pay2win", in my opinion. As an example, 2000 dmg dealt in a game going up to 2500 dmg in a game is equivalent to getting a 1 extra penetration per match, depending on tier, tank, etc. I could link a dozen threads about this, but it's all bullshit and none of it is concrete evidence for either side.

The fact does remain that Wargaming has made it so EVERYONE has access to premium ammo by being able to buy it with silver earned from playing the game. Cash money is no longer required as it once was. Premium ammo will not make you a better player, period. Good players will still shoot at the same targets on a tank whether they use premium or standard ammo.

So you play a game that you hate because the competition is worse?

Wow. Just wow. That explains your irrational brain functions.

I'd be happy to listen to what you have to say if any of it meant anything. You still can't actually explain yourself. Grab your meds, fix your brain buddy.

they start with primary skill at 100% and let you immediately start working on a secondary skill or perk.

They are small bonuses. So what? The game is free. There has to be an incentive to spend money somewhere or the company never stays in business. Millions of people clearly disagree with you as Wargaming is doing very well and has World of Warships on the horizon.

Side note...It is too bad that World of Warplanes turned out to be shit.

Endo wrote on Sep 30, 2014, 23:30:
What all this boils down to is that by spending money, you can effectively boost your win rate by 5-10%, which is HUGE. (I've seen data from tests done by one of the top players on NA servers.) To put this in perspective, only the top 1% of players win 56% or more of their battles. Meanwhile, the top 5% win 53% or more.

So what you are saying is that less than 5% of the total player base actually is good enough to benefit from using premium ammo full time. Do the math...this is not pay to win. if it was, the percentage would be much higher. Premium ammo really only becomes a factor in serious clan matches...which the average player doesn't give a shit about.

Majority of players fall into the 48-52% win rate. Very very few will ever see anything higher. I'm sitting at an even 50%, which has gone up 3% in the last couple months as I've become a better player...not because I use premium ammo. But I play a lot of different tanks that I'm not very good at. If I didn't mess around with crappy tanks my win rate would be much higher. Not to mention, winning a match is based on 14 other players on your team, has very little to do with the ammo they use and more about map control and people not being stupid.


But here is the question of the day...if you hate the game so much...why do you play it? Based on most of your responses I'd guess you don't play it much at all and have just gone and done some forums searches just to troll this forum with your drivel.

Majority of your responses are simply telling me I don't know what I'm talking about without any explanation as to how I'm wrong. I can't even bother to reply to your long response post because most of it is "You don't know what you are talking about. You must be a shill". Not a single informative response in the whole lot.

Look at you guys rambling on about F2P and gold ammo. I just loaded the game up to check, and sure enough you still have to buy "best" ammo with gold. I did not see any silver option.

The silver option is there even if you did not notice it.
I load c.a. 10% APCR ammo on all tanks in case I need it for a battle winning situation, but use well under 1 round per match on average.
I have never bought APCR with real money.

Yay, someone that knows what they are talking about and isn't a moron.

I'm sorry you are blind...try looking again. The price is a drop down menu...click it and choose Silver. Having eyes and a brain help.

The problem I have with games like wot is its sets a poor precedent for what kind of tank games can be made on the market. Arcade trash can be easily marketed with ADD clicking and grind-fests gets money, but true tank simulators go to the way side.

Not sure how WoT is arcadey. Sounds like you don't know the mechanics of the gameplay at all.
Simulations are boring as shit and don't sell well. But that is just personal preference.
