I will buy this game if I can buy hats for my tanks. Can I buy hats for my tanks?
yes, also crafting. you can take 2 jaguars and mush them together to get a war galleon.

Its esentially a tank shooter with a lot of tactical and strategic elements thrown in.
right now there's no strategy. it's all tactical.

News Comments > World of Tanks Clan Wars Signups
9. Re: World of Tanks Clan Wars Signups Mar 17, 2011, 11:20 MxxCon
 
100,000 credits an hour, that's 10 hours of grind to get enough credits for KV3, the next one up is 25 hours, the next one up is 36 hours. and that's credits only to buy tanks themselves, not counting required upgrades(not even talking about 'all' upgrades).

i call it grind because of a very steep increase required to progress from earlier tanks. if they would make the progress more linear i'd have no problems with it.

the game's mechanics are always pushing you to upgrade to a higher tier, therefore you have no choice but grind and grind. you can't easily keep every single tank you played with. you have a limited number of slots in your garage so you are forced to dump lower tanks to make room for larger ones.

You DO NOT get gold coins while offline. During the beta you get 250 coins every 24 hours. You just happened to be offline when they give them to you.
Once the game live supposedly you have to pay real $ to buy in-game gold coins.
However, all is not lost. If you play a fully researched tank, any xp you get goes toward a common experience pool where you can convert that xp into gold coins.

Even though this game is very addictive, it's an insane grindfest. On par if not even more than Korean MMOs. I'm playing Russian line and to go from an artillery tank that i have right now to the next level up I have to have ~190,000 research points! During a usual match i get 500-700 research points, and up to ~1700 research points during a really successful match. I also have a KV-1 tank. To go from it to the next level up, KV-3, I need to have 21,000 research points(which is not that bad), but once I researched it I found out that I need 1 MILLION credits to actually buy it! During a normal game I get ~20,000 credits. And I'm just about to reach the middle tier of tanks.
Going all the way to the top is going to take an insane amount of time.

I'm appalled that they deleted Blue's News entry!
This site is a gaming institution! I can't think of any other site that existed for so long while maintaining its focus and spirit!(well, perhaps VoodooExtreme to a much smaller degree).
Look at http://www.bluesnews.com/a/2/site-credits That list does not justify it to be in Wikipedia?!
Maybe somebody who's familiar with Wikipedia's idiosyncrasy should resubmit that article?

News Comments > Gaikai Live
10. Re: Gaikai Live Feb 27, 2011, 21:24 MxxCon
 
I was in the closed beta test of Gaikai and i can tell you it works much better than OnLive.
It's much more responsive, better image quality and uses much less bandwidth than OnLive.
I guess it's slow right now becuase they have a massive rush on new customers and they can't scale up fast enough.
Once they have enough capacity, i think they'll be better than OnLive.

This game will be awesome. I've been in the closed beta test for this game for the last 9 month and have seen how it progressed.
This transition explains why the development of the game slowed down in the last 2-3months.

I have no idea about this game, but why did they hand it to GPG if it was developing so well?
prolly financial problems.

Either you don't know wtf you are talking about or you failed English reading comprehension 101.
Age of Empires Online is not MMORPG.
None of Age of Empires were ever RPG.

I tried to get back into it by playing a couple games online last night, but it's just too fast. Everything literally looks like it is moving in super speed, like watching a movie in fast forward. This might be great for the 400 apm pros, but for some of the more casual players it takes away a lot of the enjoyment. If anything, at least ask players what game speed they want to play on.
i'm kinda in the same boat as you. whenever i play rts i always get rolled over.
i like to play until i research everything to the max and then build the biggest units and destroy the opponent.
while i'm happily researching 3rd tier units i suddenly get flooded by opponents tier 1 and 2 units and destroyed.
RTS multi games are just not for me..

Mytheon not Mythos. Got me all excited there. I was a BEta tester for the original Mythos. Lots of fun and potential there.
I get confused by those two Myth* games too. Heheh! Is this one any good?
isn't this 'once-canceled' Gods & Heroes game? or is it yet another game to get confused with

This is terrible news for PC gaming, because of the impression it leaves.

I'd say it's terrible news for Crytek and/or EA more than PC gamers. Everybody knows that Crysis 2 was gonna get pirated anyway. The absence of this leak wouldn't have changed that. However, what this leak suggests is that either Crytek or EA have poor security and this hurts their reputation. The leak most likely occurred within Crytek, given the included DRM master keys and editor. EA's impression of them has become far less favorable.
actually i think this leak happened by an external beta tester..
i highly doubt it's an inside job.
and if it was a result of a hack then i'd imagine we also get source code for the game.

I don't know about the rest of you, but $5 for 5 hours is a total rip-off.

$5 for 3 days is more appropriate.
you want 72 hours of GAMEPLAY for $5?
keep dreaming.
only like 1% of all games on the market right now are that long.

I think this is a horrible idea.
You are paying money to play a fucking demo!
This will give a precedent to dev to stop making proper demos and force everybody pay money for this.
If devs will adopt this and stop releasing demos then people will have even more reason to pirate since they'll have no other choice to try a game.
