Never on a project large enough to suddenly have users be responsible for bugs.

start exploiting bugs on gambling sites and see where it gets you.

Which deals in real money in competitive play against other people.

F#cking apologists are awful at analogies...

Yeah, god forbid anyone criticize them for restricting someone's freedom of expression.

Freedom of expression comes with responsibilities, but it is exercised in appropriate forums.

Using someone's game as a platform would be the same as demanding the right to take over TV programming and saying whatever you want. You do not have the right to use the game as a vehicle for expression as the game is not a democratic society, it's a product sold for entertainment purposes.

Much like forums, the people running the game have the right to clamp down on whatever they see fit, and you have the right to choose not to buy it.

Stop confusing the right to express yourself with trampling others rights, in this case, the creators of the game. If you feel so strongly about freely expressing yourself in a game, make your own...

WoW = People rushing to throw tokens up and undercutting like crazy to get in quickly before the market gluts.

You can't undercut anyone, Blizzard sets the price, and the person who puts up the token gets the price they listed it for, not the price the person bought it for.

Hrm, I heard "AH" and assumed it was just a free market thing.

Not too put too fine a point on it but that seems awful convenient that Blizz skims an extra 5 bucks off the top & sets the gold price for these things based on "dynamic analysis of availability and demand"... Obviously, holding on to your tokens until it's sub rollover time should get the best bang for buck, but the inherent flaw in this system is that there are far more people that want to buy gold imo than there are that want tokens. Dunno, the whole system seems fishy to me, they knew a roaring trade in gold sales were going on and the easiest way to combat that is to join the fun and cut out the gold sellers.

I do like that they have made the things soulbound on sale (so they can only be sold once) to prevent AH manipulators from buying them up en masse and holding them until it's end of month time to jack the prices.

The commodity market of Wildstar was a superior implementation (even Station Cash was better because you could gift SC items to people and they could pay you in plat).

Commodity = put up a price you're willing to pay and wait for the market to meet it.

WoW = People rushing to throw tokens up and undercutting like crazy to get in quickly before the market gluts.

Installing it right now! Going Cipher, dunno which race!

Well, it took years, millions of dollars and a hell of a lot of hard work, but someone finally made a kickstarter that Cutter likes...

; )

Should be finished downloading when I get home from work this afternoon just in time for the weekend, woot!

vulkan or glNext whatever you want to call it is basically openGLv2. It seems also that it has been closely developed along with AMD's Mantle.

Long story short.. close to metal performance, platform agnostic. Kinda seems like DX is becoming the new Glide time will tell..

Cept Glide was good...

Hey, what happened to gameplay over graphics? Did this site turn into Blubisoft News while I was away?

Didn't you get the memo? Graphics>>>>gameplay was announced 3 seconds before people read the article.

It'll probably change the next time a POS eyecandy title crops up with crappy gameplay... =)

Being in Aus, I didn't see the US coverage or how sensational it was, but honestly, they are damned if they do/don't.

Don't warn people and it's bad, outcry. Take pre-cautions and nothing pans out, outcry.

We've had a couple of cyclones in Aus which have literally charged up to the coast and dissipated right before causing any problems at all. Still means packing down the entire yard and doing all the prep (hours of work) just in case. Better to spend the time and not need it than to hope everything is fine and end up with a trampoline through the window...

If they were going about "DEATHSTORM 2015!" and shit like that, then I wholeheartedly agree that shit needs to be pissed off.

You paid for early access to a beta product on the opening weekend and you're surprised that there are issues logging in and lag in the game.

Precious. Just precious.

And the offerings get worse and worse...

Because they can get away with it, and because apologists think it's the consumers fault for expecting something.

Do standard beta testing. Fucking SOE doesn't need to crowdfund the game, they have money to dev shit. Let testers play the game for free, help with the work of Q&A and bugfinding, and release a fully functional product.

Here's one of the devs showing off the game in Oct 2014, looks like a decent tactical game.

'murrica.

Fuck yeah.

Just sayin'.

ps. We banned talking on or using a mobile without a hands free kit in Aus. I'm not usually big on the gov. stepping in and slapping "don't do" all over everything, but this is one thing I fully support.

Bring back islands full of fucking mutants and tropical shirts.

Not that I minded saving 3 countries worth of "not white" people while turning endangered species in to coin pouches, but this game has wandered pretty far from it's roots...

It's a strategy/management game with jump scares. Manage your energy/light and try to make it through the night.

Haven't even bothered with this series. The scares don't bother me, if I want to scare myself silly I'll go play Amnesia again. Just the whole idea of the game seems a bit meh imo.

So now I'm back playing WoW and here's the kicker- everything is accessible. A lesson WS is going to have to learn VERY quickly in order to survive.

It's accessible the way Candy Crush is accessible...

No one wants to put in any effort. The guild I was in for WS (formed from a larger gamer organisation with members world wide) started with over 150 people.

2 weeks in, down to 30 active.

A month in, lucky if you could scrape 5 people together to do a run.

And it's not just Wildstar, it's game after game these days. Hit max level, doodle around for a bit, get bored, quit. Most of the players in my guild didn't make it 50% of the way to max level...

People are spoiled for choice, and if everything isn't shrink wrapped and ready to go at the drop of a hat, they lose interest fast. WoW is a hollow experience now. Garrisons, dungeons and raids mostly full of window licking yolo types and.. well, that's about it...

The lagging is on certain abilities, shield charge/cyclone being the two major culprits.

Since shield charge is kinda useless, I moved to whirling blades and haven't had a lag death since (3 f#cking hardcore characters all killed due to shield charge rubberbanding while trying to escape...)

As for the uber builds with ultra expensive items, I've been using the Sovyn's lazy pally build (max shield block tank templar) and have spent relatively little (bout 5 ex all up, all of that self earned). Considering 5 ex won't get you a single high tier item for some builds, being fully equipped and being capable of doing 85+ maps by standing there and tanking everything is pretty good. 18k dps reave as the main attack.
