The suggested letter to send to Apple sounds like it was written by a 14 year old from the World of Warcraft forums.

It was kind of dumb that they bought ATi in the first place.

Also with framerate drops?

The old Mega Man games never drop frames. The entire game just slows down.

Hopefully Zelda is delayed straight into the new console so people don't have to buy a Wii U for just one or two games (those two being Zelda and Mariokart).

So, out of curiosity, because I have never ever, ever played wow or any other MMO, what the hell is a token? Reading the description, it sounds alot like ingame currency, whats the point if there is gold already? Basically you pay $20 real money for a token that you can sell for pretend money gold? I guess this is why I dont play MMOs or F2P.

Sounds like you weren't playing MMO's anyway, and WoW is only 10 years old. Not like you had time to try playing it well before something like this ever came up.

I've been enjoying this expansion so far. Managed to casually go through heroic Highmaul and part of heroic Blackrock Foundry. Can't say that about other expansions.

Or do people just not really realize how much slower time is moving when they're in their 30s than in their teens?

Not that it matters, but I think you have that backwards. Time feels like it moves faster as you get older. That's why summers feel endless as a child but are over too soon as an adult.

Looks cool, but I don't see anything in the video that remotely resembles an MMO.

I saw them click the MMO check box though.

The thing about that is, when I played wow, it took up so much time that I didn't buy/play as many other games.

A fairer comparison would be comparing it to how much a given player spent on other games in 10 years.

I play WoW now (off and on since 2008) mostly because it's cheaper than playing other games and, for the most part, there is always something to do. I'm paying for it, so I tend to stay in and play it more, so I save money from not going out as much, too.

I hate sounding like a fan boy, but Carmack is great. He's realistic about things.

Bunny hopping is half the feel of the game. :/

EDIT: Ok, so maybe that change isn't too bad.

A basic "bunny" and auto-hop mechanic has been introduced that allows players to simply hold forward and jump to build up some speed. However, because the new bunnyjumping only provides a limited amount of accel gain, and is only effective on straightaways, players will still need to learn strafe jumping over time we hope that this new mechanic will allow both general movement and gameplay to become more accessible encouraging them to continue to play so that they may over time become more accustom to the finer side of Quake.

News Comments > Obsidian's Pathfinder License
10. Re: Obsidian's Pathfinder License Aug 13, 2014, 18:19 beigemore
 
It's not a competitive game. It's a co-op story played through cards.

There's the adventure path, which is the entirety of the game (Rise of the Runelords, Skull & Shackles, etc) which is made up of multiple adventures (you buy the adventures separately) and each adventure has multiple scenarios. So you complete the scenarios to complete an adventure, which allows you to move on to the next adventure, which has more scenarios. Eventually you finish the last adventure/scenario and the adventure path is finished (you won the game).

The card game isn't a CCG. You buy a base game that comes with a few classes and the introduction to the story, then you can buy adventure packs which are basically more chapters to the story. It has a definitive ending to the story, as well. There is also a card pack you can buy that adds a few more classes.

There are so many errors on the original cards, though, that I'm looking forward to the electronic version solely for the text corrections.

A real Space Quest sequel would be pretty nice.. or even Quest for Glory.

24. Re: Team Fortress 2 Countdown Jun 17, 2014, 18:11 beigemore
 
I've been playing TF2 off and on since release. There are times I go for a few months without touching it, then I end up playing for a few months before getting bored and taking a break again. The variety of weapons and classes is what keeps me coming back. The cosmetic items are neat, but don't matter.

It's really weird, but there's a server I pay $5 a month to play on. I don't mind paying because it's cheaper than an MMO, can keep me entertained for a few hours a day, and the server is always full with fairly competent players.. plus I can join when the server is full as a donator. It makes for inexpensive evenings. I never did any donating with Q3 servers, but perhaps I would now. Who knows...
