You all seriously have no clue just how good this game really is.

Yeah. That's why it's such a runaway success, right? It's everyone else. Not you.

Rolleyes

Like I said, you have no clue at all. You never logged on min in this game and now your an expert because you never played it. So how the fuck would you even know?? And besides what you think you know. the game has undergone a lot of changes.

BTW Cutter, this game only failed because of the subscription model. Now this game is on the same level as Guild Wars 2. You only have to have a purchased copy of the game and its completely free.

There are no strings attached. the game actually went live last night and I checked. the Crown market has a few mounts and cosmetic changes you can buy along with some pets and special potions. but other then that nothing else is attached. its completely free.

I'd never spend anything with PWE, terrible games and service.

Yeah, I am not a fan of PW either. I think Star Trek Online has become a solid MMO, but it's the exception and I think it was released before PW took over.

Cutter gave me a closed beta key to Neverwinter before it launched and I found it pretty "meh" overall. Not bad, but not good enough to keep me after about 2 weeks of playing. I will say this about it though; the Foundry is a tool that fits right into a D&D game. Like similar tools in City of Heroes and Star Trek Online, it really adds value to the game. It benefits the community in positive ways as well.

dont be fooled, PWE has turned STO into shit with all of the changes to Crafting and dumping new T6 ships into the game that can only be gotten from buying Enhanced Crafting boxes with Zen. its a crap shoot with a 1 percent chance to get the new ship.

Fricking patectic!!

They basically copied NWO models and dumped it into STO. Its a nightmare trying to upgrade weapons and consoles in STO., not as bad as NWO but its right up there with being monetized to hell and back.

I can almost assure you that this is not going to be an expansion. From reading up on what is actually getting released they are adding content and expanding areas that are already within the game. That is NOT an expansion.

This game has really turned for the worst. when they implemented the crafting system and upgrading to your gear with runes. it turned into a Pay To win game. Its appalling how the system works in the game and how painful it is to get anything upgraded.

Dont get me started on the Boons and the absolute grind fest that is. Uhghh!!

2. Re: Act of Aggression Trailer Mar 13, 2015, 08:36 Darks
 
I love the Act of war Games, and when I heard about this one and they were going back to their roots. I about fell out of my chair with joy.

Their newer Wargames series, is very underwhelming. the whole play style is just not very well done. the game looks great and the battles are fun, but the lack of base building and relying on FOBs to do anything just kills that game.

So, yea. this is great to see them going back to the golden age.

News Comments > Resident Evil Revelations 2 Episode 3 Released
2. Re: Resident Evil Revelations 2 Episode 3 Released Mar 11, 2015, 12:09 Darks
 
I've been playing the first episode, got about 3 hours into it now. and it has been a pretty fun game so far.

I've had no issues with lag or stuttering like some have complaining about.

So far, I am enjoying this game. If you are looking for specifics, let me know. The story so far has been good. you switch back and forth between the two chars you start off with.

One is more of a combat person with a gun or close combat, while the other holds a flashlight and guides you and finds hidden gems and such. But you will find more hidden items when you are switching to her and using the flash light to highlight those items.

You start off wondering through a prison trying to find out how you got there and why you are there and whats going on.

You cant complain about the price either. 6 bucks per episode , or the whole package for 30 or something like that.

So, let me get this straight, he was hired on to help on Star Citizen after his failed attempt to Kickstart Conquest. So, is he now not working on star Citizen?

Personally I never liked Decent. Looks like a bunch of his corporate buddies threw into the 2K and plus tiers to give them a big boost.

These games are defiantly not as much fun when going it alone. Not sure if you tried it Coop, but Its the only way to really play his series.

You can tell they're making actual progress because the sad trolls who come into these threads to trash Roberts and Co. are strangely becoming more and more absent.

I'm still as skeptical as anyone, but you have to admit that procedural damage tech is very impressive, and to me, is finally something that's ACTUALLY next gen.

Let's hope they can keep this train rolling.

Oh? So because we're not gullible fanboys we're trolls? Almost 3 years at this point - more like 5 if you count pre-development stuff - and they have basically nothing to show for it so far. And now SQ42 has gone from 16 episodes to 5 and it will have been over 3 years at that point. 3 years for one episode. And you have the gall to call us trolls? Hahahahaha! Yeah smoke another bowl there guy. Let us trolls know when you come back down to reality. Lol fools and their money.


Ignore him Cutter,

Hes a fricking noob to these forums, so how the fuck would he know for those of us who have been tracking this game day one.

Even better you can look at the actual rankings on battle.net.

There isn't a single Barb in any of the top 100 groups 4 player groups. I didn't look beyond that but I'm sure that goes on for awhile down the list.

Barbarians suck in high end GR groups. They do ok solo.

They need to be tweaked to do better in groups.

Not sure why some of you are arguing over facts.

Exactly what I have trying to drive into these guys heads. Barbs suck, period! Solo dont mean shit when it comes to this games end game content.

Sorry, but you are full of shit. The Barb is horrible. The only classes anyone will play with are Monks, DH and WD's and Crusaders all other classes are considered worthless to the higher tier players. And monk's barley fall into that category, they are only useful as Palm Monks.

Sorry, buttercup, the facts don't lie:

Barbarian can do up to GR 50 just like all the other classes. Just because you fraternize with elitist min-maxing metagame assholes is no proof of a class being bad. Half DPS and half zDPS tank/control groups are popular because it allows a lot of people to participate in higher tiers than they'd otherwise be able to. There's less skill and quality gear required.

Exactly - there are some folks who just want to push GR as far as they can. In those groups and in that game mode, the only classes they want to use are the most optimal - DPS DH, CC/Buff Crusader, CC WD.

Here's another example - pet WD. Not the greatest build in the game, but very solid and can go reasonably far in GR. Pretty tanky, with solid crowd control, etc.

It COMPLETELY falls apart in speed T6 runs, however due to a lack of AOE burst damage (and really fast movement skills.) Some folks ONLY speed T6 runs, so for those people they think pet WD is horrible.

For one part of the content, they are notably mediocre to poor but for mid to upper GR, they are pretty decent.

I would never consider pet WD horrible (far from it), but they excel where Raekor barbs have issues (single target), and fail where Raekor barbs excel (movement speed and AOE.)

you guys are frcking delusional,, the ONLY way to do a 50 plus GRift is with a DH and a WD carries you ass all the way through it. I Really want to see you make a Video of your so called Awesome Barb and show me in a GR 40 plus taking on the GRift boss all by your lonesome self and lets see how long it takes you to kill that GRift boss.

And let me clue you in, the only way to level your gems is to do those high GFifts that are 45 and up. Good luck trying that crap at level 30 you wont be getting very far.

And please don't tell me otherwise, I play with my Brother who plays this game non stop and is well over level 700 on the paragon levels. And we see it all the time, no one wants to take Barbs on the Greater Rift runs over level 35.

Sorry to tell you otherwise, but Raekor's barbs are pretty darn good. They are in fact the fastest T6 clearer in the game and are really good in GR. The reason no one wants to take them is the most damage done in the game is Demon Hunter's BY FAR, so Barb just didn't fill any role in higher GR. Nor does Monk, Wizard, or any DPS Crusader or WD.

The roles are 2 DPS DHs, one CC/buff Crusader, and one CC Witch Doctor. Until other classes can match the dps of DHs or the CC/buffing of the two best support classes, it's going to remain that way if you want a really good high level GR group, unfortunately.

Sorry, but you are full of shit. The Barb is horrible. The only classes anyone will play with are Monks, DH and WD's and Crusaders all other classes are considered worthless to the higher tier players. And monk's barley fall into that category, they are only useful as Palm Monks.

Raekor's barbs are the fastest solo T6 clearer in the game. T6 is still a great way to acquire gear. I will certainly grant you, that a Raekor's barb is not particular welcome in many groups simply because they are so ridiculously fast, it makes most other classes feel like they are not contributing.

Where Barbs are not needed is in the highest level of GRs where it requires a coordinated team of roles, but like I said most other classes/builds aren't used there either except for 3 specific builds.

So my point is simply that you are using one metric - higher GR, to decide that "The Barb is horrible." This metric is not even the best way to acquire gear (far from it) - it is simply the most difficult content for leaderboards. So if you consider Diablo a loot gathering game (which it is), the Barb excels at it. He's just not particularly group friendly.

And I'm not sure where you are getting Palm monks from - EP was basically removed out of contention when they got rid of it scaling from monster health, unless you are talking about the current PTR, where it is making a comeback.

OK, keep telling yourself that while you are sitting on the sidelines when no one will take on on the higher Rift runs.


Yes, he can SOLO. lets make that clear and say it in slow motion. SOLOOOOOO!!! but that's about all he's worth. He cant kill Single Target Rift bosses very well when it comes to the much higher Rifts. he lack DPS. He can not keep up wit many of the other classes. So rant all you want about how great he is and keep living In that delusional realm you seem to like. because the reality is he's still worthless at the end of the day.

I don't get the WOW comparison. Other than the skill trees. Which I hate. Still love the game(now that it's fixed).

I see some of the WoW aspect in D3. Its defiantly there.

Speaking of the Barbarian, its out right shameful how Blizz has destroyed this once beloved character. Cant DPS for shit, and his survivabilty on the front line is disgusting compared to the other classes. And Blizz for some odd reason refuses to fix the Barb.

So, in other-words they want to cripple the game even more by adding higher end cool-downs that will evidently cause players to die more often. I can just hear my brother now bitching about this one.

If it is just those skills that offer complete invulnerability, I don't see any issue with this. It's not like they're applying it to Akarat's Champion, and completely fucking over the majority of Crusader builds.

Ill just say this, I have played every class, and have some really good geared toons. I never once saw where I was invulnerable for any long length of time. No Idea where that's coming from. I have had my ass handed to me more times then I can count.
