So a PTW, Zombie, Early Access game ISN'T a new idea...!

Well gosh golly, I'da thought that would get everyone excited.

Seriously, WTF are there so many damned Zombie games? I don't mind a few sure, but it's effing ridiculous.

Not a big fan myself, but I'll take it over some of the previous trends, like military shooters...

Yay 4k... Just got my Samsung 50" 4K TV (Main monitor) set up yesterday, and was surprised my GTX 770 2GB is handling it as well as it is... Test drove a few games at reasonable rates (WoW/D3 at 80-100 ish, and even raided last night in WoW with no noticable issues)...

Dragon Age: Inq was at 5FPS, but disabling aliasing upped it to ~15... Playable, but not nearly ideal... Might pick up a 970 (potentially SLI) or 980 though.

Legless Peach...

There are currently another eight listed for sale on eBay. The highest is currently priced at $800.

I don't understand people... Sure, those other auctions could also skyrocket, but probably not... What made that one worth so much more?

Hadn't heard this coming, and saw it on sale, so looked on the page... Looked at the screenies, which made me look for a 10 year old release date... Then I looked at the high price... Suffice it to say, I am thoroughly confused...

I anticipate this will be heavily pirated and this piracy will be easily rationalized by the people who pirate it.

As opposed to all the other piracy?

Awesome... I enjoyed some of their previous games, and it's about time they updated the engine... I'm assuming... : )

I haven't put enough time into the many expansions they added the last few years though.

Is there a Blues guild on Area-52, I recently started playing there?

I don't know any other Blues people in WoW, let alone on the server.

But again, launch week is crap for a server like Area 52... Being high pop means queues... Being 99% horde means everyone is in the same area, so those areas run like crap. I should go to sleep for a week : )

Wait, they didn't release on a Tuesday?

Went live overnight. Mine shipped out yesterday and should be here today.

What server are you on, Nin? Just got my CE from Amazon. Starting area is a great idea. Highly phased so you aren't competing with everyone for kills like every other expansion on release day.

I'm on Garona primarily, but I've not played in a long time. I suspect it'll be like previous expansions where I show up for a few days and lose interest. Not that thats the games fault, it's more of burn out w/ mmos in general.


If you ignore launch week, US-Area 52 is a good Horde server... And we need some raid members (Wed/Fri 9 to ~12 EST)... : )

US-Area 52 is at about 45m queues (3pm EST)... And the early quests are so packed, it literally takes minutes to click something, or kill something, or whatever... Crazy bad.

Skipping quest hubs helps, but you have to get to a certain point before you can, then it looks like 92 is required to start the next zone...

"While rogue-like games are not true role-playing games"

Might want to understand the medium you're in before embarrassing yourself in a press release.

When I think RPG, I think progression... New skills, abilities, and stronger as you go character... Persisted...

When I think Roguelike, I think repetition... Random skills, abilities, and stronger as you survive... Then you lose it all... Some Roguelikes add some progression, like Rogue Legacy, but I think of that as outside the norm...

I'm thinking about picking up CoD, but I think I'm going to wait for a sale. Don't really want to pay full price for it. Maybe 20-30% off would be ok. Same with Mordor really.

But everything is nearly always 20% off on GMG...

Because Windows sucks balls and Mac Desktops are overly expensive.


I...can't disagree with any of that, really. I've contemplated getting a mac a number of times over the years, until I see the price.


iMac's are an interesting beast... Or now that they're more common from other manufacturer's, 'all in one's...

They're basically built like a notebook, but with a bigass screen... Not as portable, but not much less (if you have an outlet)... As with notebooks, they're as limited in customization, or more, since the only thing easy to change is memory... HD is possible, but requires a lot of work (like with some notebooks).

And after all that, each time I consider upgrading, I can't justify it... And buy a nice new shiny video card for the PC : )

Smart move. MOBAs are a dead end right now. I'd be surprised if even Blizzard's MOBA goes anywhere near League or even Dota2 numbers.

I would be pretty surprised if it doesn't have huge numbers... Not sure where LoL/Dota are at, but I guesstimate Heroes will surpass it within 2-3 years.

It really does boggle the mind that many people are still into WoW.

There are no other good alternative to WoW. All other MMO are either lacking contents and/or support.

'Lacking Content' is grossly unfair... And not really all that different... There's been nothing (substantial) added to WoW for a year, and they held at 6.8M+... Sure, there's a crapton of old stuff people could do, but I would guess a very small percentage of players bother with it.

Anyhow... 9 days!
