From the first update...

As you can see, it was an emotional moment. We all dreamed and believed we could hit $1,000,000 in the 35 days of the campaign… but never, ever did we imagine you would get us there in 11 hours.

That's pretty fricken fast!
Congrats!

Uhhh... people weren't smart enough to immediately go into uplay's offline mode after activation? That's what I did for Far Cry 3.

Do the online "invasion" things (whatever they're called) work if it's in offline mode? Or is that just UPlay that goes offline while leaving Watch Dogs online?

Well...since I wouldn't want some random jackass interfering with my game while I'm trying to figure it out... I assumed that most people would want to initially play without the multi-player.... which would also give Ubi time to get their shit straight.

It's bad enough that every imagination-deficient American is naming their poor kid Aiden these days -- now imagination-deficient game developers are naming their characters Aiden too?

Unfortunately names are trendy here in the States but its nowhere near as bad as the Middle East where every boy is named Mohammed or Osama.

whoa. 9/10. the intentional misunderstanding of middle-eastern naming conventions was subtle and the Osama thrown in for fuel added just a touch of spice. nice work.

That's ok... I always thought they were all named "Hoch-Ptui"!

Does anyone plays & enjoys this game?
My beta play-through felt extremely hollow.

Yes... playing and enjoying.

Taking my time and enjoying the journey, just hit level 47 and I've been in since early access, and I'm mostly duo-ing with a friend.

I wonder how much money Zeni paid for id Software, while Carmack was only responsible for the tech side of things it seems the value of that purchase went down exponentially as soon as Carmack left.

Well... that's the bottom line of why they're pissed, isn't it?

~ Buy iD for a shitload.
~ Carmack puts out a Shit engine for a shit game (Rage).
~ Carmack leaves (which is mostly what iD was) and the money Zenimax spent to acquire iD is mostly down the shitter except for some IPs (Doom, Quake, Wolfenstein, etc.)

Zenimax CEO (Robert Altman, who married to Lynda Carter) is actually an Attorney. So, I'm guessing he's pretty pissed off at Carmack.

Whether they have a case or not... I don't know... especially since it doesn't look like the last few litigations went all that well for them.. like the Interplay thing.... and jumping on the minecraft guy for daring to use the word "scrolls" in a game title.

Maybe they don't care if they win, and just want to make Carmack's life miserable, for leaving.

Win9 subscription...good luck with that haha.

Actually.... if they make the deployment and updating enterprise friendly (Unlike Office 365), Businesses may go that route for the constant upgrades.

To be clear... I'm talking Office 365, not Office 2013... while the programs are the same (Word, Excel, etc) and they are both local installations on the workstation... the licensing, deployment, and updating are totally different.

On a consumer level though... yeah, bad idea, unless it's really cheap, and one always wants the latest product.

40 percent of PS4, Wii U, Xbox One power usage comes in standby mode, report says.

Well Duh. 8 hours of work and 8 hours of sleep + other hours of not being on the TV... makes for a lot of "standby mode".

Crytek: 8GB RAM Will be a Limiting Factor For PS4-Xbox One Development.

Uhhh... modern PC Games don't even us 8GB. 2GB Max per 32-bit Windows process (Usually 1 process per application, although that is starting to change) + and most video cards are using 1GB-2GB for 1080p.

8GB minus the OS, should be fricken plenty.

Granted, PS4 is using some 64 *nix as a base OS, and the Applications are native 64 Bit... but when you compare to what a PC can do with 4GB and 1GB Video card... I'd say Crytek has some room to play with.

Unless they're talking 4k... which is stupid for this generation's hardware, even though PS4 and XBone claim that ability. In that case... it's not just memory that's the limitation... the APU's are too weak.

I just may jump into this one.

I played the demo last year, and it was a ton of fun, and besides, who doesn't want to be Neo? I'd really like to play a full game of it.

Uh... wasn't that what the first Max Payne was supposed to be, with bullet-time?

Symantec's business model is failing, not the need for anti-virus programs. They're still wanting $50 for a service you can get for free from many sources. Perhaps if they offered a basic free, or low cost edition they could reclaim more of the market.

Actually, signature based virus scanning has been dead for years. It has all gone behavioral based, although they keep signature scanning as a "layer" of protection.

That said... apparently Comodo free AV is in the lead for this year (According to AV Comparatives)... basically because it defaults to trusting nothing unknown, and either blocks it or virtualizes it so it can't infect your machine.

I've never used Comodo before... but I just installed it on my mother-in-law's PC that I just upgraded from windows XP to 7. I think it will definitely do a better job than MS Security Essentials... which is what I was originally going to put on it. And it won't bug you to re-register every year like Avast.... heck it doesn't ask you to register at all. Haven't used AVG in years... so I don't know if that is any good anymore. Panda Cloud seems like another good one, if you also want web filtering (in a tool bar)... but I haven't tried that one yet. ...I'm too used to enterprise solutions.

Like all ES games, this game is about immersion.

Is a crowd of 50 people waiting for a boss to respawn again and again and again part of that immersion?

Since I kill the boss once and move on... it's annoying to see but not a deal breaker, for me.

That said... Last night I killed a boss twice and got no loot other than 1 gold on the second kill... so obviously the folks at ZOS are doing things to combat the botting and boss camping.

Call-a-doodie, Call-a-doodie, Call-a-doodie, Call-a-doodie, Call-a-doodie, Call-a-doodie, X-Box Go Home!

I never could get into this series... and I like shooters. I'm not sure of the appeal... but I have to admit I have very little knowledge, other than watching friends play, or trying a demo here and there (when they released one).

That said... this one looks more interesting than COD:Ghosts

To last posters. A big part of this is "It's your first MMO", MMO's are like LSD, the more you do them, the less they give out always wanting more and not getting it. Eventually quitting.

For many MMO'ers we searching possibly for something we'll never get back. The first golden years of MMO'ing. Enjoy the ride. I'm certain your first MMO was a better MMO than my first.

I've been playing MMO's since M59 (before EQ and even UO), MUDS before that. I've played a ton of MMOs over the years.

I find ESO's questing and skill system highly entertaining. I actually like the combat better than the single player games (although they still need to work on response times... nothing more annoying than spamming a key that doesn't seem to go off, only to find it actually did, and it fucked up your stamina/magicka management for the encounter)

The questing is presented like a quest, much like the single player games... not a task of "kill 10x and come back... and that's it."
Most quests actually seem like you are doing something worthwhile... that is if you are the type of person that enjoys the ride and tries to soak in the immersion of the world.

If you are the type of person that wants to do nothing but power level... you will hate this game. It's NOT a "typical" MMO, nor should you try to play it that way. Nor should you try to play it EXACTLY like the single player TES games. It stands on it's own.

Either you love it or hate it.

I love it. Best MMO I've played in a long time.

A system that allows grouped players to see each other even when they’re in different phases

That really needs to be their top priority... everyone that has ever played an MMO is bitching about that, myself included. Besides the bugs... my biggest complaint is this particular issue.

Don't get me wrong... I love solo friendly MMOs... but I also want to play with my friends. The current situation is too forced solo, unless you plan ahead with your friends to start and finish every quest together... which is what I'm currently doing, but it's a pain in the ass.

News Comments > Legit Elder Scrolls Online Accounts Banned
6. Re: Legit Elder Scrolls Online Accounts Banned Apr 21, 2014, 09:22 wtf_man
 
Turn off Zone chat and Yell in your main chat window. Create a new tab called "Spam" and have everything turned on in that tab.

You will still get says, whispers, and guild chat. When you want to do some trading, click on the spam tab and do your thing... then switch back to the chat tab.

What I don't get is how they can afford to have so many accounts banned. Even with the client already downloaded... you have to buy the game to even logon. You have to provide a CC number that is checked for funds, so it has to be valid... or a time card code which had to be purchased.

They must have made a keygen for both the game and time card codes. THAT is where Zenimax needs to concentrate... so when they ban... these fuckers can't make new accounts without paying.

I quit playing once I started hitting the level 80 zones. It practically turned into an action RPG, where you were killing waves of mobs every 5 feet, which completely turned me off. I have never liked action rpgs, so I've never owned things like Diablo.
