Too much time and effort, for very little real world payoff.

MMOs defined.

Hobbies defined...

I disagree of course... I think entertainment/joy/pleasure/etc are a good real world payoff : ) Otherwise, all anyone could ever justify using their time on, is exercise : )

The question is what will be the drop off be like after two months when the people that only came back to see the expansion. You saw spikes like these around all of the other expansions.


I do agree that GW2 is probably one of the strongest competitors to WOW at the moment. After seeing an MMO implement like one of the previous posters said, the tag-less mobs is hard not to want that in other games. The dynamic events that cycle through basic PVE quests to outdoor world boss is a fun change in that game.

There are few things that World of Warcraft seems to do a bit better such as tying the lore together a bit better. It is probably possible for the games to coexist.

I'm also curious about the two month drop off, but for GW2... Seems every second day, I see a new thread of many posts of people (finally) realizing it's the same ol...

As for Mists... The initial sales are not all that different than previous expansion, and also surpasses one (that is conveniently left out of the bashing report nin linked).

In either case, numbers, and personal opinions matter not... A ton, as in, millions, of people, are thoroughly enjoying both (and even Rift/SWTOR) games ; )

Here is that WoW reference I mentioned last week. Have another character in the area and took a pic.

That doesn't seem WoW related to me...

I love that this thread is all about shitting on Blizzard and sheepishly agreeing with the sensationalist news, but when there's a story about how PC games sales are dying, and 99% of the thread is 'OMG, no they're not, digital!!!'...

Hypocrisy much : )

The sad thing is that as slow as they were to implement this, and as minor a feature it is, they are still adding this functionality before Steam is. Seriously Valve, how hard would it be to put this in place?

This has half worked on Steam for ages...

Just the other (work) day, I went offline in my steam friends list, and they couldn't see me playing Borderlands 2... Too bad my boss saw the achievements I got : )

Hey, can anyone direct me to a working download link for TL2? The 1.4Gb offline installer on the Torchlight 2 page hasn't worked for me since it went live last night (it's still "Starting..") and although I've heard that Perfect World have their own client I haven't been able to find it on their site, even though I bought TL2 through them.

Blast, that will teach me to buy a game elsewhere when I could have purchased it on Steam instead..

Games can still be bought outside of Steam?

The 'nice' thing about everything using Steam DRM, is that it's easy as shit to crack when it's already been done for other games... Like instant launch day easily served piracy... They don't even have to try any more heh...

Anyhow... Piracy bad...

Edit: This is one of the reasons I always thought third-party-anti-piracy was a bad idea... Crackers used to have to work hard to track down the IsThisProductValid() and change a bit/byte/etc... Some companies even put it into multiple places... But when third-party additions were added, they were more easily (and ironically) circumvented because the crackers knew precisely what to look for (and sometimes where). Anecdotally, it's something I could have excelled at, but had just about zero interest in : )

2-3 hours in myself... and I have already found 5 set items heh... 4/3 of one set, and another 1/3... They're so not powerful (being low level, and more frequent), but it's fun to collect...

Enjoying my embermage... The starter fire attack is great, but I'm loving the Prismatic Bolt more, and I was even able to get my 'automated' skill point back for the fire attack, so that's a really nice feature.

This game screams variety and randomness, which is a nice change of pace from D3's linearity...

Finally, a much requested feature is being added...

Too bad it's not the much more requested 'Be Offline' feature...

Edit: hahaha.. 'My entire friends list had already long figured out this feature and have been 'appearing offline' for a while : )'

Edit: I see no 'TL2 shipped' announcement (maybe Blue is too busy playing it), so I vote this be the TL2 thread until then... : )

How are people liking it? : )

Had I known the game would turn out the way it did, I would not have bothered with it.
I don't like where the game has gotten to, but there's no way I could say that. I enjoyed the hell out of the first four years I played the game.

Of course, I agree with you. deqer's comment is beyond absurd.

I am thoroughly convinced that is what s/he is going for...


As for no start left in AV... lead by example.. go get a tower back... no need to defend your own since it's not happening, except in my BG(group) where we get back capped all the time : )

It's most def a solid bundle. Unfortunately I already own most of the game.s I'll wait and see what else they add over the next week or so.

I'm on the fence myself, already owning all but vessel and dust force, and I recommend each of them, especially at the insane $1 (heh) cost : )

I mentioned in the Borderlands 2 IGN review comments section, but I suppose I'll ask here also: When I see RPG/FPS I think Deus Ex/Bioshock. I loved System Shock co-op, wondering will I get a similar experience?

Absolutely and irrefutably no.

While those games would be considered RPG/FPS games, this is more FPS/RPG. If that makes any sense. Shooter first, RPG a distant second. More akin to Diablo as a first person shooter than any sort of deep involved RPG experience.

Ahh... I see. I hate it when reviewers and members of the game dev community like to throw around words like "RPG elements" and the like for terms which don't even exist. I'd like to call those more like advanced-FPS games. (I don't want to hear "RPG" mentioned plz)

I have always considered 'RPG elements' things like xp and levels, skill/stat boosts, etc... If you're looking for the story 'RPG elements', try some indie titles, as it rarely makes it into the AAA space... regarding FPS' that is...

Bordlerands was one of the most overrated games I've ever played. Gameplay was ridiculously repetitive, you spend the entire game doing the same thing you do in the first five minutes. There were literally only three enemies that you fought over and over and over again the entire game. The environment was drab and boring, there was no creativity whatsoever in designing anything you discover. And the bazillions of weapons were just randomized variations of themselves, see one you've seen them all. Story? Pfffttt, terrible. Also the most anti-climatic ending of all time. I have nooooo idea what all the fanfare was about. Yes you can play it with friends, which I did from start to finish, but we were both bored to tears the majority of the game.

Ahhh.. Good ol exaggeration... Losing arguments since the year 0... Three days my ass...

Definitely not the worst trailer... But then, I have a memory... Or rather, I can't remember worse one, but I remember that there is one : )

Anyhow... I liked the part where the Human, Night Elf, and Tauren came out of the water... Nice to see everyone getting along : )

The biggest challenge in this game is trying to find gear you can use rather than going to the AH but I guess that's working as intended.

When's the last time you've found an item which provides a general buff to your player? I found some 'okay' weapons since the 1.04 patch which went towards buying a nice 1.04 Messerschmidt's Reaver but that's about it since I stopped playing and picked up GW2.

I had bought a 630 damage 1h a while back... Few days ago, I got a Rare (I ignore blues now heh), that is 980... The 5k or so boost in damage was about 20-25% of my total, buffed, so I would say that qualifies : )

I also upgrade an armor piece, but it wasn't nearly as massive, and I can't remember which piece...

This is with my wizard, that I just took into Act 2 for the first time today/yesterday, and I'm doing well... Fast + Fire Chains still caused a few (very quick) deaths, but otherwise, it's going well... With the 25% Inferno mob damage nerf coming, I'm afraid it's going to get close to the boring level of challenge, but at least I can rip through, beat the big D and call it done : )
