Still waiting for a free trial or forget it.

Can't you just smell the entitlement?

Wow, Turbine really thinks people will pay a monthly fee for a crappy console game if they slap a red "MMO" sticker on it? Considering one of their MMOs just went free-to-play, they're welcome to try.

So you're criticizing the features he says they're going to adjust, none of which should have affected you very much, since you only got to lvl 21.

It's fine if it didn't scratch your itch, but why are you trying to bury it when it's only just started?

News Comments > 25 Years of Elite

At this point you can't make a space combat sim without dealing in the legacy of Elite. Of course, Braben himself hasn't touched the property in nearly 15 years, so this "celebration" is a little mystifying.

I agree that EVE is in the space that an online Elite would occupy, and I kind of doubt that Braben is going to go there. Frontier will probably be announcing "Space Combat Sim Tycoon" or something.

Auto Assault was crap. It was more WoW-like than WoW in its fawning, vacuous attention to mission grinding. What a waste.

Now, if they had made it more about world exploration and faction combat than grubbing for duct tape, that would have been fun. Too bad that in MMOs, most "exploration" means "go over there and kill 10 mutants."

They should turn the code over to the players for player run servers and release the source engine and SDK as Public Domain so people can create content and mods for it but we all know that'll never happen
[SNIP]

Considering that DR was cobbled together from the assests left over from another MMO that failed to launch, I think you're overestimating the value of the IP. Sure, there could be 10,000 DR servers running their own custom versions on the intertubes until the end of the world, but will people want to play it in the next generation of MMOs?

In an industry headed towards free-to-play as a standard, DR is of substandard quality and not worth re-investment. Simple as that.

Your a fool if you invest any time in a game by that bunch of money grabbing mongrels.

Awww, do you need a hug Talisom? You must really miss Bill Roper.

what do they play now? WoW of course, because now they have children and families and responsible jobs.

You heard it here first, folks. WoW is the safe, predictable Buick of MMOs. The cornerstone of gaming suburbia, the doormat of progress. Lay down the rest of your lives and relax in WoW.

it is just another theme park MMO

Aren't they all? What "theme park MMO" do you look upon and tremble, Ozmodan?

I've often said that I play MMOs so I don't have to drink.

Which is cheaper and better for your health?

If you think of it as a game, you're not going to get "worked over." You make it sound like a "rival corp" from Eve is going to show up at your house to beat you and take your stuff.

That said, this news brings the idea of "realism" to a whole new level.

As even a casual reader of Penny Arcade will be aware, Gabe is an admitted germophile... I would say that rather than freaking out and locking himself in a bathroom for a month, this is just plain responsible.

He'll definitely get some strips out of this.

The guy narrating the clip is just NOT the person you want showcasing your project.

Yeah, it would have been so much better to have DeForest Kelly up there making saracastic comments about how the medical section would be dealing with all the n00b commanders' mistakes.

We can't play Romulans? Oh man, can we at least be mirror-universe starfleet?

I never realized that so many QA workers spend so much time reading this site. Obviously this explains why game quality has been in the toilet for the last few years.

Granted I still like the game, I just would have expected a little more 'stability' (if that's the right word to use) on the dev's part.

It's Cryptic, they change things. The thing that bothers me is all the wailing and gnashing of teeth that ensues when such changes are made. Ow! my ears! Can you kids keep it down a little?
