Plus there's this for the technical folks out there.

I'm glad I didn't pre-order this game. Now I know not to play it. I'll wait for Wildstar.

I didn't pre-order anyway. Ended up liking it so much I went out of my way to find a CE.

Tried Wildstar this weekend with a key from Alienware. I can't believe people are so excited for this game. It's the same graphics as 10 year old World of Warcraft with the same combat. The introductory quests seem completely unfinished (where do I go next?) and BORING. I only played for a couple of hours, and I felt like I'd played this game before.

TESO looks really damn good for an MMO, and to insist otherwise is just dumb. They can't have Skyrim graphics with that kind of world... Hell Skyrim's world barely functions at that level of fidelity. Their target audience includes low-end PCs, and the people who have to ask "will my laptop run this?" So that's another major factor.

What people do not seem to understand is that a single player game is easier on a GFX card because you have ONE player to draw (IF it's played in 3rd person) and then the terrain and monsters.

MMOs have to account for the fact that you can have HUNDREDS of players on screen EACH with a unique texture set, plus monsters and terrain. To have the same level of graphics as Skyrim would cause even people with bleeding edge machines to have single digit frame rates.

ESO has a huge PvP zone. I tried it for the first time yesterday and it was "dead." And by dead I mean only a couple hundred people around. At one point there were about 100 dominion players on my screen, and about 25 enemy players, plus about 25 NPCs. It all seemed to run smoothly, but it wouldn't have if it all had the graphical fidelity fo a single player game.

Stop forcing your religious beliefs on me! I am so offended right now!

Offense is something you choose to take or not. It takes a lot more energy to be offended than to ignore things.

That said, I hope you are joking.

BTW, if I was forcing my religious beliefs on you, you'd be tied to a table with me regurgitating dogma and torturing you into my way of thinking. Since I am not forcing you to do anything...yeah.

Poor Dan Stapleton. Had his bought-and-paid-for review criticized and then had to go and whine about it.

People may not like Joe for his weird starts to his videos, but the guy does EXCELLENT reviews, and if there's shit wrong with a game, he will actually mention it. He gave Titanfall a 7/10, which seems reasonable, and said it was ridiculous that so many sites simply continued the hype, continued sucking MS cock, and gave it 9s and 10s.

I guess IGN gets all pissy when they get called out.

Yeah, I read that headline, watched the review, and read the Twitter back and forth. Sorry, but BOTH parties do not look ridiculous. Only IGN looks ridiculous for "calling out" that Joe guy for telling the truth.

But a 31 minute review. Damn. Now I know why I avoid a lot of You Tube content.

Wait... wut? Titanfall had a story?

I think this is breaking news to all titanfall players.
Especially to those of us whose resolutions cut off the little window where it took place.

You're just mad because I said it first and now you can't be seen to agree, so you have to attack instead.

This game is FUN! It's only in alpha, so I can't wait to see what gets added and how much more fun it becomes.

Are the monsters an actual threat? One thing I hate about vanilla Minecraft is that you can defeat the AI by digging a hole in the ground. A lot of survival games are very similar. After X hours (and in cases like Minecraft, minutes), there's just no challenge because the mobs suck. Or rather, surviving the environment is the challenge. The mobs are just an annoyance.


Well, they can destroy your fort. They are mostly slow moving and fairly easy to avoid, like zombies. But, the danger is in being complacent around them, and in assuming that your fort will stop them. Depending on the size of the monster and what you made your fort out of, they will take it quick or slow. So, you have to actually defend the fort. You can do this from the outside, or if you made holes, or from the roof, or however you can think of. you can also build awesome traps to stop them. I LOVE chaining trap types into each other. Floor springs that bounce them into spikes in the roof while a flamethrower toasts them.

It sort of has some of the flavor of Don't Starve. Building weapons and tools, finding supplies, Day/night cycle. Monsters mostly come at night. Mostly.

I've been alpha testing this since October. They sent the first 500 of us a cool little dog tag.

This game is FUN! It's only in alpha, so I can't wait to see what gets added and how much more fun it becomes.

Basically you have a bunch of areas with missions. You start an area and build a fort to protect yourself at night, when the monsters come out. During the day you try to complete the objectives to move on to the next board. Pretty much everything is destructible, and there are a lot of hidden areas. They shut down the test right before Christmas, and we've been eagerly waiting for them to start it back up again.

Wasn't the Cyborg Rat the first tunable gaming mouse?

Maybe they mean the first one that works well. I had an MMO7 rat mouse. It would randomly stop tracking for 5 to 30 seconds at a time. Cyborg blamed everything but the cheap sensors they used. Went back to Logitech.

I'd say very few. It's obvious that World of Warcraft was a unique case. I like this game, but I don't see any reason why this one will buck the trend.
WoW was nothing special either. The only thing going for it was a very expensive and clever marketing campaign that involved grassroots propaganda to spark up the social networking around it. I remember i was quite surprised many of my friends would fall for it, but they went "because everyone else is there"...
I'm not saying TES online will repeat this, just that popularity is not tied to quality.


Too cool for school!
