I don't think it actually qualifies as customer support when the issue is beta testing a game for free. You're certainly free to be butthurt about whatever you like though. The game is pretty fun and I'll play it occasionally.

News Comments > Warhammer Online: Wrath of Heroes Beta

I tried five rounds of this last night but really wasn't impressed. It seemed really, really spammy and very much favored players who had spent money. Yes, that's right, it's in beta, supposedly, but they're very forward about taking your money. Much like league of legends there were a few free champions you can play as, but people who actually own those champions can unlock higher damaging skills, so they have a sizable advantage. Plus, advancement without real money spending is nearly impossible. For example with a similar time investment in something like league of legends you will have been able to unlock one or two cheap champions. In this case I made 645 coins in about an hour and a half and lower cost champs are 30,000 coins, which is one hell of a grind.

A great classic game that's worth checking out if you don't already own it.

So is this a real MMO or just a basic multiplayer game pretending to be an MMO, like world of tanks?

So basically the pirated edition is feature-superior to the retail copy. Yeah, that's a great way to keep the pirates at bay!

News Comments > BioWare "Considering" Mass Effect 3 Ending Feedback
13. Re: BioWare Mar 19, 2012, 10:49 Lokust
 
The sad thing is that I would probably buy whatever DLC they put out to help add some closure to the experience I've invested so much time in, but it will absolutely be the last time I purchase a Bioware product. Maybe even an EA product. So I hope it was worth it to them.

This is a dark game. I expected a dark ending. I expected many people, and likely Shepard, would die. However, there are many objective problems with the ending not fitting the series.

All of your little choices you made don't matter. Those choices mattering have been the hallmark of this 100+ hour trilogy.

The macguffin character that is introduced at the end totally shifts all paradigms about the outcome, and your character trusts them completely, for no apparent reason. (yes, indoctrination theory, blah blah, but you're told the reason another character couldn't make that choice is that they were indoctrinated, so I don't buy that)

Why did the Normandy retreat, and in some cases, pick up crew from the earth battle site first, to be in the position they were in? It could show crew surviving and healthy with the Normandy when they appeared to die few minutes earlier. If they didn't die, why didn't they follow you and help you?

The reapers were marginalized in the ending. Harbinger deserved more than a cameo.

I'm okay with the fact that every choice you are allowed to make is effectively mass genocide and the apocalyptic ending of the way of life as everyone knows it, but with the investment in many of these characters, not just Shepard, we should see more of how things turned out for them, and your choices made in the game should take that into account. Fallout 3 would be an example of how to do this.

News Comments > Mass Effect 3 Challenge Weekend

Saren, before being declared rogue before you leave the Citadel the first time, could have gotten onto the Citadel anytime he wanted, sure. Afterward it would have been much more difficult. But it wasn't just Saren. It was Saren and an army of Geth. They really did need the conduit for that, so they could strike out of nowhere at the heart of the Citadel, and come out right by the Citadel Tower in the presidium.

You could argue that Saren was already controlled by Sovereign and could have done this all beforehand, but it's possible that Sovereign didn't want to risk it's investment in Saren and wanted to ensure it had other loyal forces present.

Eh, I'll let them call it 3, because the other AC games were not made by the teams that did 1 and 2, and this game is.

It's quite fun, but a bit harder to play casually, unless you're satisfied with mouse/kb for flight controls.

9+ years is a really good run for a niche MMO. EA could learn a lot from this example.

I think so many people would want to play a Krogan that they would definitely need to have it be canon that the genophage was cured.

I would have liked to have tried this game. Shame about the origin shit.


This. If you aren't big enough to get your game on Steam then I can't be bothered to check out your game that's beneath my notice. And given the number of excellent indie developers on Steam selling their games for VERY reasonable prices, this EA company must be a tiny group of nobodies or something.

Nice to see that Mac gamers get great games too! I mean it's only five and a half years after PC gamers got it, but hey, who's counting right? And Company of Heroes is one of the finest multiplayer RTS's ever made, so it will be great for Mac gamers to finally experience tha.... oh wait, no multiplayer.

Sorry guys, only Blizzard loves you.
