I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm sick and tired of 3D as a whole. They have ruined movies with this crap, you cant even go to the theaters and watch a good movie in Imax anymore without it being in 3D. And the 3D is not even that good.

Most movies get a quick run over conversion to 3D and they pass it off on the public. the recent studies and survey have shown the public is loosing interest in 3D. to many people complaining about head aches and bad color quality in 3D movies. So I say, fuck 3D and trying to bring into games where it really doesn't belong.

Angry Joe's rant is spot on.
AngryJoes represents the typical nerd rage. Red face, high blood pressure, angry words, but at the end of the day they just fork over the monies, because they still haven't learned to say NO, THANK YOU!

Love the guys reviews, he's usually spot on. In this case paying for a game mode is utter crap. And I did say no. Will be waiting on steam 10 dollar sale. usually with those sales DLC is included.

Carpenter Movies are nothing with out the music, and he did his own scores for all of his films. Love many of his movies, but he has had a few stinkers too. Most notably, Ghost of Mars and Vampires.

Did I understand you correctly when you said, you just canned your account and you had been paying for it since 2003?

Have you run the numbers on this? you paid around 1700.00 dollars for a game.
I would agree that anyone who played WoW for years (which includes myself) complaining about the Neverwinter Zen scheme would be talking out of both sides of their mouth. That does not however preclude others from criticizing the setup.

As far as the sanity of spending over $1,000 in subscription fees to play WoW for six years, as I did. My argument is on a per hour basis it was FAR cheaper than any movie I've gone to see in a theater. Some think that's not a valid argument *shrug*. Whatever. To me, entertainment is entertainment. It is simply a means to fill time. And IMHO, that is all there is -- filling time until you finally die.


Also, $13-$15 a month is the equivalent of buying 3 or so AAA $60 releases a year, something I think a lot of folks do...it's easy to say "OMG, you spent how much playing a MMO?!", but when you break it down, it's really not that out of sorts with any other gamers yearly purchases.



Don't get me wrong, im not complaining about anyone who pays the monthly fee. my argument is those who have done this and play F2P MMOs and complain about spending money on the game that they seem to enjoy and then bitch about it being pay to win.

That's calling the kettle black in my book.

If someone is willing to pay a monthly sub, like you did, I fail to understand how buying something like ZEN in a game is really any different in the end.

It depends on the game, WoW provides way more value for that $1700.00 than an eternity of NW and Zen can provide even though you might have to pay more in time or Zen to get the quality of service things you use in other subscription games. F2P doesn't mean cheaper, far from it if you get deep into them. Reading up on the business model stuff surrounding NW on Reddit was an eye opener.

Personally I don't mind the idea of a sub MMO these days but it would need to provide WoW levels of content and polish to get me there and no game can really do that.

Yea, I read that business model too. I'm playing NWO now, and have a Rogue at lv 60. I did not feel like I had to pay to win or get my char to that level. but again, when someone complains about playing a little bit of cash for a game that's free I don't see how in the end there is any difference.

Many people seem to think that when a Free MMO comes out that it is free. But they all fail to understand that it takes servers and bandwidth to run those games. nothing is really free in the end.

I honestly thought it would be much lower. Ive canned my account a few months ago. Not bad considering its been active since 23rd Nov 2003. Thats a long time to play a game, any game in fact.

As Op said, Bring on Titan!

Did I understand you correctly when you said, you just canned your account and you had been paying for it since 2003?

Have you run the numbers on this? you paid around 1700.00 dollars for a game.

Not knocking you, I get that you enjoyed the game. It makes me laugh at people who complain about playing a Free MMO like NWO and bitch about spending a little cash on the game to get some of the more unique items and then call it pay to win. If someone is willing to pay a monthly sub, like you did, I fail to understand how buying something like ZEN in a game is really any different in the end.

Wow, ripping off Mortyr 2093-1944 much. Not getting my money Bethesda.

You are one lost puppy, no one has even seen the game yet or any screenshots or video and you have already come to the conclusion the game will be bad. This is the BS I fall back on when many of you start with the bashing of a game.

Ill tell you what, why don't you sell your pc and just pack it in and give gaming up completely if that is how you approach your decisions about games in general because that is abut the lamest approach I have ever seen when making a decision about a game that no ones even seen yet.

Well it could have been worse I guess, could have been Gearbox.

Say what you want about GB, but at least they didn't just up and dump the game and stop updating it. There was a new 5 GB patch that was released today that adds a lot of new environmental fixes and changes. the game is looks pretty sweet now with all those changes.

Cant say that same thing about EA.

Look on the bright side now we can get a Sims Star Wars with expansion packs every month for 19.99, or another quality MMO from Bioware set in a different period. My god I just threw up typing that last line.....

Well guess I'm back in my Star Wars hating/not caring period I went through after the whole Vong crap stories they published in the 90's.

Real nice 1-2 punch today, first this announcement which means I won't be playing/bothering with anymore Star Wars games and Adobe taking Photoshop sub only with the next version. call me crazy but I like to buy my software and use whenever I want, if it sits unrun it sits but paying a sub a month and not using it would be crazy. Maybe if I had a dog someone would shoot it also to go for the hat-trick.

It is worst, it is raining here We are doomed!

Take the new Bioshock infinity for example. The removed something like 2 games worth of levels from the game. I don't hear anyone bitching about that.

Sure, that game was good. Also the stuff they showed was on the same level as what was in game, it wasn't a drastic product quality difference.

I don't think the lawsuit will go anywhere but to say that it compares to Bioshock Infinite seems silly.

Really Verno? I didn't compare it, I used it as a reference to what's happens in the gaming industry as a whole. Learn to know the difference to a comparison and a reference.

"Also, Randy is in his office, pouting."

Putting 100% in game footage on the video is not a work in progress. Scumbags.

And that is where you would be wrong, it did show 100 percent game footage, but it also showed work in progress. and that will get them off in a heat beat. some people are so deluded, you guys would fall over backwards and pass out if you saw all the game footage that's been cut from games while in production.

I can't get the damn launcher to launch, let alone try to get into the game itself...

Its the queue problems that are causing the launcher to have issues. most of those have been resolved now. they are adding more server this morning. they had more people jumping on then they anticipated so the queue times got really large.


So some of you don't like the game, that fine. but remember this to those who are still wanting to check it out. its all personal preference. Its a free game, and those who are trying to make it out to be a pay to play are just being dumb.

First off how do you think this free to play game will survive and have added content if they are not making some kind of income?

I look at it like this, how many here paid for a monthly subscription on a MMO in the past or currently? then take that money and add it up for however many months you paid for that game.

So now you are playing the game and say you need a little more space, and spend 10 dollars for some Zen and buy a 24 slot bag. what is the difference here compared to other MMOs that charge you monthly?

Funny, how one guy here compares this to trying to be like GW2. sorry, but this game is nothing like it especially the combat. in fact the combat in this game is a hell of a lot more fun. Also why is it that no one here brought up the fact that GW2 does the exact same thing that this game is when it comes to buying items? If you need extra space GW2 also charges you for bags too. Crafting in NWO has bags that can be made. So there's no difference.

The game is mediocre at best.

It's only saving grace, and the only real reason to play the game, "The Foundry" isn't even implemented yet.

For those who haven't read a damn thing about the game, "The Foundry" is an editing tool that will allow DM's to create their own dungeons and story's for other people to play through.

That is the only thing I can see giving this game any longevity and it's not even ready yet.


You need to crawl out from under your rock, the foundry has been working for the past few betas. and mediocre at best? okay, you defiantly need to crawl out from under that rock you've been hiding under.

it doesn't seem to matter what game we're talking about on blues, someone has the blues about it. Every. Single. Game.
Can you show me one game that every single person loves?
Not on Blues in general I mean.

I live for a good RTS game, I loved Act of War, that was a really good game. Many people screamed to these guys to please make a patch to fix the Win 7 x64 issues. That fell on deft ears.


RUSE was a lot of fun, was something complete different from most RTS games. Had a lot of fun with this game.

So, one of my favorite developers comes around and make EE. I though hey, awesome a modern day RTS game. But, we were left with no base building, yes I know itís not but that does not mean it makes it better. So they implement a buy what you think you will need system. Then make you level up to try and get better units. And on top of that use a supply system that to me is a little flaky because supplies drain incredibly fast. A little too fast. You end up with worrying about supplies rather than playing a good strategy game. I hat micromanaged games, and having supplies in this game is what you get.

Many of my friends who also bought his found it to be too hindered by many of those aspects. Yes, some people live for this type of system. Iím not one of them.

That, and the fact that no one likes to use Origin to play their games through. If they get rid of Origin, go back to using steam and stop being douche bags, and then they might save themselves. But otherwise their done. I donít know about the rest of you, but Iíve been boycotting them since they boycotted steam. I havenít bought one of their games since.
