News Comments > Fallout 4(?) "Nuclear Winter" Teased
11. Why do people make a big deal about this? Nov 22, 2013, 12:31 JohnBirshire
 
I don't understand the hype as to why people make a big deal out of this stuff. Of course there is going to be a Fallout 4, thats a super obvious "duuuhhh".

I still play WoW. Trust me, I have played everything that has come out since then, Warhammer, Age of Conan, Secret World, Darkfall UW, DC Universe, that four letter one that starts with an R, SWToR, etc, and not a single one even came close to meeting expectations. I am not hardcore to the point of not playing anything else, I also play Chivalry, B4, and SC2, but as far as MMOs go, it is still unfortunately?? The best one.

19. Both work fine now, remaster them? Nov 11, 2013, 14:15 JohnBirshire
 
I replayed both about a year ago for nostalgia, had no problem whatsoever with them. They work fine now. If they want to "remaster" them with some updates, more modern UI's, widescreen support, etc, great! But just "making them work" is unnecessary.

28. 8.5 review average... Oct 29, 2013, 13:49 JohnBirshire
 
Game has a 8.5 average, meh. That's just mediocre as far as these games are concerned, doesn't motivate me to run out and buy it at all.

3. Star Wars... Oct 25, 2013, 00:03 JohnBirshire
 
Being able to reserve a name so that nobody else can ever use it is asinine, multiple MMO's have created easy solutions to prevent this discrepancy. Then again very little of what Bioware did in this MMO made any sense.

Well when the game has no subscription, offering it at a huge discount doesn't make a lot of sense.

It is a fun game up to 80, then quickly gets stale. The quote unquote "raids" are nothing more than your zerg doing as much damage as possible, and the World vs World is just more zerging, trying to destroy doors. It is fun up to 80, they did a good job with the areas and the questing, but then you pretty much run into a brick wall.

I don't understand why Gabe is so fat. If I was a billionaire I would be exercising everyday, hoping to live longer. Not be a billionaire with a life expectancy of 5 more years.

I played the older MechWarrior games long ago, so was curious about this one. However, after watching numerous videos, it looks to be incredibly repetitive. Are you not just doing the same thing over and over again indefinitely?

This is simply too late, would have been a better outcome and generated a lot more interest if they didnt wait until so close to the next ones release.

4 vs 4 PvP sounds great, I have always liked smaller battles where individual player skill has a more significant impact on the outcome. Might start playing again.

Kind of had to laugh at the "If you pay, you get the expansion for free" statement though. All these "Subscription games are dead, F2P is the future!!!" fanbois continue to ignore the fact that the overwhelming majority of F2P games are only free if you want to be a noob indefinitely. Should be called F2D, or Free 2 Demo.

Whenever I want to buy an older game, I check GoG first, then Steam. I like to support GoG because without them, a lot of older games wouldn't be available for purchase.

24. Red herring...Auction House is a scapegoat. Sep 6, 2013, 12:30 JohnBirshire
 
The problem was never the Auction House itself, it was their terrible item drop rate decisions that ended up forcing people to use it just to play the game. If the Auction House didn't exist, the problems they blame on it still would anyways. They've just been using the Auction House as a scapegoat all along.

23. Re: SR4, GTA5, console FoV... Aug 29, 2013, 21:22 JohnBirshire
 

Why in God's name would you play a video game on anything other then a glorious PC?

I think you missed my point....I dont. But I couldnt rent SR4 on the PC, and the game had no demo. And GTA5 isnt being released on the PC this year.

You haven't been able to create a character on ANY North American server for the past 48 hours. Anybody defending this game is a bias fanboi with their head in the clouds, the release is a disaster. On a reboot after acknowledging the mistakes they made on the first release, nonetheless. No excuses.

13. SR4, GTA5, console FoV... Aug 29, 2013, 13:25 JohnBirshire
 
I wasn't sure if I wanted to buy Saint's Row 4 or not, so I rented it for my XBox 360 to check it out. I liked the gameplay, but ultimately gave up on it because the Field of View is so incredibly close, despite an entire life of gaming without any trouble I was actually getting very bad motion sickness from the game.

With a PC you can easily change the FoV, but they gave no such option on the console. This makes me really nervous about getting GTA5 for the console, if the FoV is really close and they neglect to add an option to change it, I have no interest in playing. Might have to sit the console release out and hope for a PC release eventually.

55. SE is a joke... Aug 28, 2013, 23:17 JohnBirshire
 
When trying to log in just says "World is currently full, please try again later".

They can't even get "MMO 101" right and have a login queue, or allow you to create characters on a server you're already a member of, or let you skip character intro's, or allowing 75% of people logged in to be AFK just to hold a spot, etc etc. It's kind of sad when they can't even get the BASICS right. Their decision making is still as bad as it was when the originally FF14 Online didn't even have servers outside of Japan. Square Enix just isn't capable of making a single good decision.

Skip this game, wait for Elder Scrolls.

52. Cant create new character, or recreate Aug 28, 2013, 19:21 JohnBirshire
 
They are locking servers and not even allowing you to create new characters even if you already have characters there, which is something I have never seen in 25+ MMO's, and a terrible ridiculous decision that is driving us nuts. I deleted my main to recreate his look, and now cant recreate him. Another friend wanted to try a new race/class, and cant, unless we all want to split up and play on different servers. If you are already playing on a server, you should be exempt, like in every other game Ive ever played where they have had to lock the servers. Minor but stupid decisions like this is causing a lot of frustration, and it doesnt take many bad first impressions to cause irreparable damage to your game.
