News Comments > Resident Evil 6 Announced

Hardly the Dead Island trailer - nonsensical plot with more of the same gameplay now set in cities (and sewers) around the world.

Still I'll play it anyway - completed all the others so why not.

"We couldn't be more excited," said Jack Emmert, CEO, Cryptic Studios, Inc. "Our game already doesn't have enough subscribers to keep it as a premium MMO and has now joined the cash store ranks of Maple Story and Flyff on it's way to it's ultimate form"

"We have strong hopes that within the next 18 months Star Trek Online will join other MMO luminaries such as The Matrix Online and be retired forever to the Hall of Fame."

Fixed.

A Rakghoul sounds like something out of Borderlands. Or Fallout. Just sayin'

Yeah or KOTOR - you know the game which was out 6 years before Borderlands (although it was after the original couple of Fallouts).

I really like the game - but yes there does seem to be some padding (pretty unnecessary in an mmo - and Quesh is pure filler, like an B-side of a planet) and the load times are pretty horrendous. It really is select character then wander off for a min or two. Also alt+tab makes it load for 5 or 10 secs on mine - complete with loading screen.

I'm defiantly renewing - I'll have maxxed my juggernaut by the renew date but I want to play through at least one of the Rep classes as well. First MMO I've ever played where I've enjoyed the plot (I liked the Storm Peaks storyline but that was all from wow).

I'm glad it was delayed - gave me an excuse not to go to the gym. Now it's coming in a few days though

Damn was hoping for a juggernaut overhaul - I'm tempted to reroll as it seems their last pick for tanking Ops but I have a lot of time invested.

I hope they do tie up the story nicely - a little part of me dies every time I see somebody called "Shepherd" in ToR.

I live in Rochester. Unfortunately it's Rochester, Kent and we don't have a single shop which sells videos games. We have a medieval castle and cathedral but no game shops

There's no way that would possibly happen, as every romance line is denoted with [flirt]. I have no problem with the game allowing any sort of romance option so long as it's always just an OPTION, ie: the way it already is -denoted with [flirt] in the dialogue choices.
I play the game for the great story-lines and story choices, without that it's just like any other mmo. If they are NEVER going to allow that companion as a same-sex romance option, then it would be easy to go back to playing my character. But if I keep playing, get to 50, and then they patch it in at some point down the line, then that whole storyline has been missed out on.

Thing is this is an MMO and you've already said your not a e-peener dps whore so I guess your playing for the social and storyline aspects - NOT the hardcore endgame PvE raids (when they come).

They know damn well people who aren't that interested in endgame will play more than one storyline, as a minimum most Lore players will play at least one storyline on Empire and Republic - and if they can get you to play it through twice more in 6 months time with the offer of same sex relationships then they'll damn well implement them.

I can't think of another MMO where you actual have a social rank depening on how often you team with other people. They've spotted a new demographic and are going after it.

Sidenote - can we forget patches, upgrades, balancing and even new content. Can you just give the Russian players their own servers please ?

News Comments > WoW Cross-Realm Raids Coming
1. Re: WoW Cross-Realm Raids Coming Jan 7, 2012, 19:54 Lorcin
 
Not sure if this is a nice touch or a decline in subscriber numbers. It's not something any kind of decent raiding guild will welcome.

If anything it's going to make things more elitest as any idiot will be able to get into a PUG raid but they'll be even worse run with less chance of success. Meanwhile the elite guilds will have to try even harder to find decent new blood as people pick up achievements by getting lucky because a friend of a friend of a friend knew a guild who had a slot one week.

Support for why I play this (and most other MMO's) like an SP game. Power-gaming DPS stat e-peen flexers drive me nuts.

Anyway, I just got Jaesa Willsaam as a companion for my Sith Marauder only to find out they didn't implement same-sex relations for her or *any* of the companions. Supposedly will be a "post-launch" addition, but who knows when that will be (if ever) or if it will even be retro-active for existing companions or only new ones. And yes, I'm pathetic enough that this could be a deal-breaker on continuing to play that character until it's implemented (if it's going to be implemented). I would have suffered through staring at a male character as my avatar if I knew this was the case. Curse them and curse me for not researching that it had been switched from a launch to a post-launch feature ahead of time!

I bloody hope they don't retroactively make some of my companions gay and my previously innocent compliments mean I'm suddenly in a relationship with them - btw before you condemn me as being homophobic imagine if the changes suddenly mean your in a straight relationship.

Furthermore if having ANY kind of relationship with a VIRTUAL character means that much to you that you'd stop playing the game, I strongly suggest you put the mouse down and go to the nearest gay/straight/transgender/hermaphrodite bar.

No point in that petition - most of the pc gamers would just slag off the port and the graphics.

Agree.

And when Bethesda makes games bigger than some states in the Union, well, who really shives a goat about it being MMO?

Seriously, WoW aside, MMO's have about the lifetime of a swamp gnat.

^D^

I care! There isn't a proper post apocalyptic mmo out there worth playing. There's been attempts Neocron was good in it's day but didn't age well, Anarchy Online was always a reskinned Everquest clone and the sci-fi elements always felt tagged on - especially once the Shadowlands expansion came out, after that we're talking Fallen Earth, Global Agenda, Hellgate London etc etc

I would love a truly gritty AAA production post-apocalyptic MMO - hell I live in England. It would be nice if the online world made this place look nice.

So he may have simply logged off, may have been suspended, or may have been deleted. No way to know.

Fair enough - I'll keep checking for him then. Would be interesting to know.

I saw somebody disappear from the game within 5 minutes of him starting to work around the profanity filter and throwing around racist rants in the general channel of Imperial Fleet.

I thought it was weird he'd gone suddenly quite because he started strong (not just f words, c words and anti-semitic comments) so tried to add him to ignore and the game said he didn't exist.

Impressive response time as it was about 3pm on a European server.

UI wasn't that much of a problem for me - I just got bored of the repitition. I really love the game - but need a break from pickup quest, kill everything in dungeon, loot thing with big pointer on, hand in quest.

Is that C3P0 vs the evil turd monster?

Can't be - even in 1977 they could make arms slightly rounded.

Checked this on Origin earlier today - not a chance at the price they are charging for the initial package. We all know it'll be <20 in 6 months time and the endgame content will only just start being worth a subscription. They should have focussed on a free client with monthly subscription - the high client cost indicates a near total lack of content. They don't expect people to subscribe for long.
