They really need to get a new engine for this game, they are milking this one to death.

Whenever I get an ARPG itch I go back and play Dungeon Siege 2.

I don't know why that game doesn't get more credit. It was everything Diablo 2 was and more, just without battle.net.

Sacred 2 and the TQ expansion were good, but they just don't draw me back like DS2 does.

Putting dungeon siege and diablo in the same sentence is laughable. DS took the auto-combat route, Dungeon siege 2 copied all that MMO AI controlled combat shit that didn't exist in diablo. The dungeon siege games were games you watched more than you played. What the original DS had going for it was the atmosphere and the unique way skills leveled up. Dungeon siege 2 was a giant snorefest and broke everything that was good about the first one. DS1 was alright because it sat on the knife's edge of player participation and novelty, DS2 was just broken on such a fundamental level.

Well, that your opinion, but many of us here actually enjoyed DS2 and still do. As for the auto combat, that was done purposely because of the sheer amount of enemies you had to deal with at one time. it was way too hard to have to manually attack everything. And apparently you didnít look at the option very closely. You could turn off the auto attack at any time.

I think the whole point of this is to allow those who would not otherwise get the chance to show off what they can do. I think they all know that their work is subject to being used especially if that person gets hired by EA. I think everyone understands that and is willing to take the chance if they can get hired.

You gotta love how it takes a million dollars to get a new Star System made. What does it really take to make a star system? Placing planets and asteroids and scripting in some missions. That does not take a million dollars.

I eagerly await the day when these hackers will get around to doing something infinitely more constructive with their talent then DDosing digital game retailers. Ok i get it. EA is universally hated by gamers but surely there are other more worthwhile targets out there if you really want to make a point??

I agree Black, Attacking these servers serve no purpose at all. All they are doing is hurting the gamers trying to connect to these services. These guys are more dangerous than the normal every day person who pirates a movie or game. The Gov. seems more interested in taking down pirated sites when they should be putting their efforts into taking these asshats off line permanently.

Care to draw some examples?

China and the U.S. are equally stupid when it comes to their governments. The people however of these countries have little say in what their government does.

Not so. America is worse because people actually can affect government and its policies. They simply choose not to out of apathy and greed.

And Darks calling someone or something else dumb is the height of irony. Put that clown on ignore.

Kiss my ass Cutter!!

Tiananmen Square. Need I say more? I can go on and on about their policies and lack of environmental procedures too. The country is a toxic wasteland.

China is such a stupid country, when they make a big issue out of something all it does is draw more attention to them and their problems there. I never once up un till now thought any negativity about Chinas being portrayed from the game until they started whining about it.

This is really sad, but in all seriousness, Blizzards owner Mike Morhaime should be the standup guy and help this person. If they donít, then again, Blizzard can kiss my ass. This is someone that worked his butt off and helped make Blizzard into what it is today. Totally sad to see Blizzard not helping this person out.

DayZ is living off the memory and hype from the mod. Iíve read too far to much negativity and complaints from others in the steam forums that the mod is way better than the Alpha. There is such a things as releasing something too early that can cause a bad vibe for a game. I think thatís happening now with DayZ. Especially since they are saying still a year away from beta.

Full-fledged uplay integration.

I donít much care for Uplay either but what I do like about it is playing games earn you credits to buy nice add-ons and DLC for free. At least they are giving you rewards for playing the games.

And I am totally onboard with these developers; I met these guys years ago when they worked on Ground Control at E3. The Devs were a great bunch of people to talk with and cared about their games and getting community feedback.

Iíll be supporting this game.

Snowden's no "whistle-blower"...he's a lying, cheating high-school dropout sociopath who fled the country after breaking every oath he ever took with his country and his employer. His word means nothing and he cannot be trusted. He broke into his supervisor's computer after stealing the password, got the answers to an NSA entry exam and passed the test. I'd bet 99% of his "releases" are either made up completely or else completely out of context.

Whistle-blowers do *not* act like Snowden--they stay in the US and blow their whistles. They have the courage of their convictions! Ever heard of a US whistle-blower who fled the country, then blew the whistle, and then moved to mother Russia? I didn't think so.

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/nsa-speaks-out-on-snowden-spying/

If, in the United States, we had anything besides a corrupt, inept, ludicrously stupid and incompetent Media Press, Snowden's "whistle-blowing" would have been laughed to scorn with jeers from the start.

Snowden's going to discover that hanging might be preferable to living out his days in Russia, or anywhere else, for that matter. Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home, eh Snowden? Don't kid yourself--Snowden now fully realizes the extent of what he's done and would give *anything* to undo it all. But it's too late for that kind of sentiment as the choice is no longer his. This is a wonderful example for anyone else thinking of unwisely burning his bridges.




We are on the same page Walt, I canít agree more with your comments. The guy is a low life piece of shit.

Holy crap I never watched that....although I think I heard about it, is that the one where the hillbilies hunt and rape a bunch of hikers??? (This game has got nothing to do with the movie I hope?)

Only one gets raped, Ned Beatty, but Burt puts an arrow through one of the guys. Really good movie.

The forums were alive with people complaining about the game. Most were saying the mod is better. I personally donít care for this kind of game because of all the player killing that goes on. It get to out of hand with people who like the camp and are being asshats about it.

Shareholder, where are our profits the end of the Quarter is coming up?

EA, get that game out now or youíre fired!

User, this game sucks, it crashes all the time and is full of bugs, I want a refund.

Shareholder, Sue their asses, we lost profit, they lied to us.

EA, fuck all of you!

For those looking for elder scrolls gameplay with multiplayer... keep looking.

For those looking for elder scrolls themes, lore, and visuals, with pretty modern mmorpg gameplay, give this game a try.


I can't help but wonder how many people will buy this game thinking it is Skyrim Online. Oh how disappointed they will be.

I really wish Bethesda the best of luck with this game, and they will really be needing it with the monthly subscription fee. I expect to see a successful release and then a flood of players leaving the game in disappointment and because of the subscription fee. It will probably be fairly similar to the rise and fall of the SWTOR MMO subscription numbers.

Iíll tell you this; I prefer a monthly fee over the F2P model any day. F2P is NOT F2P. You will end up spending a hell of a lot more in terms of side crap people always miss and need in games. Storage space, bag space. char slots. and gaining access to your funds that are placed in Escrow. Those things are not free in most of the so called free to play models.
