News Comments > Reports: Bethesda's Interplay Injunction Denied [Updated]
10. Re: Reports: Bethesda's Interplay Injunction Denied Dec 11, 2009, 13:53 RenownWolf
 
I'd rather be interested in the actual judges ruling as it's usually full of reasoning as to why each part of the motion was denied.

I'm no pro but I do pay attention to the missus when she's blabbering about her law studies and the judges reasoning can sometimes be the most insane yet awesome thing you've heard.

Then again, you can also see where the appeals come from when a judge just rambles and gives no decent reasoning (suggests that they either have no idea what to think, were too tired or would rather let the appeal judges figure the mess out).

News Comments > Op Ed

A bit dry on an actual point that was. Like reading the funnies in the newspaper.

Indies never disappeared really, but now they don't rely on a big publisher to bring it to retail with the internet now so widespread and people having decent speeds to download the games they want to try without pressure ($50us/$100aud price tag).

Good luck to the indies I say, sometimes KISS is the right path indeed.

I wouldn't say horrid =\

But it looks a few years old, more like it was designed around the q3 era. Playstation 2 game maybe? heh.

Gotta say at least they are holding a position in the market. Really they have set themselves up decently if they can manage to get an exclusive on a decent game.

That being said, a few more features and better developer integration would help spread their tools further.

I don't know what royalties they go for, but the easier you make it for developers to release their games on there, or better yet indies, the more it will expand because the developers will help market impulse for them to sell their games.

News Comments > On Microtransactions
3. Re: On Microtransactions Dec 5, 2009, 01:12 RenownWolf
 
I'm curious, would people here prefer micro transactions or a subscription (say maybe $5us a month). Or better yet pre-paid time for ingame time.

For example say $5-10us for a 90 hours game card (that's 3 hours a night for a month), is that something you guys would consider? Personally I'd jump at it as it means I'd only be paying for time I've used.

Btw, just picked those numbers from my head, just wonder if it's a decent idea?

Considering their next action was to start hiring up in countries with a lower level of income it does appear a bit of bs.

It would be rather nice if there was mass bannings for the BF series. I realise they do try... but no matter the security there will be botters but they really need to ban hammer more and have a more active anti-cheat setup.

Sorry but PB fails in everygame... all it ever does it fail to work and boot you from servers at the worst times and yet the hacker is still in there happily destroying the game.

The BF2 patch fixed somethings... but mostly it reminded the hackers that it was the place to be =\ I'll wait until the player count has dropped again so there is a chance they are legit players rather than botters etc...

MMORPG Churchy style fun fun. And a mere $60,000 required... by Dec 2.

I greatly doubt it's going to work, all the power to them, but I doubt they get anybody doing their "pledge" over $100 even though you can do $3000.

It all kinda gives me the creeps =\

Wow China is such a interesting place. While other countries look at internet addiction and go "lol as if addicted", China is right in it's face trying to stop it.

Mmm... guess somebody should get working on a Cultural MMO experience with micro transactions and a small monthly fee ($1 a month of whatever suits the chinese market). Maybe add a WoW type arena mode for the competitive mode with awesome fights like... The Politician vs the Historian!

News Comments > Star Trek Online Open Beta Signups

After a quick look and only found the click on the "redeem your pre-order beta key" part for the Open beta.

Guess it's more of a Pre-order gimmick like always.

I like Star Trek and all, but from watching the video with the "It's a tank ship, a dps ship and a support buff ship", I don't expect great things =\

I still live in hopes of more Firefly... picked up the boxset at a dvd shop one day and read it. "Meh looks arlight, and on sale for $20 (aud mind you).

How my perception of sci-fi western changed from "haha cowboys in space is silly" to "THEY CANCELED THIS?? WHY!!!".

Go go firefly! I'm a real sucker for good sci-fi =\ Even had my missus paying attention to SG1 instead of listening to her Twilight books crap =D

Just to derail this topic straight up but...

http://www.destructoid.com/modern-warfare-2-gets-dedicated-servers-via-hack-155250.phtml#ext

So it was built right in the whole time (well duh). So interesting to see the reaction from IW/ActiBlizz.

News Comments > Warrior Epic Expansion Beta
2. Re: Warrior Epic Expansion Beta Nov 14, 2009, 09:36 RenownWolf
 
I gave it a go awhile back when it first released. My biggest issue was healing and health potions. You were limited to only a couple of poitions which you pretty much had to use real money or get a healer class in your group which was at least lvl 15 for the good healing.

Meaning for the first 10 levels I had major issues unless we had a higher up.

I don't know if it was just me doing something wrong or they really expected you to constantly buy health poitions or what but you were still limited to 3 per "instance".

Interesting game, but didn't like the mechanics of staying alive at lower levels without spending lots of real money for poitions.

The last time I voted, I was amazed I was not asked for any kind of ID whatsoever. I game my name and address and that was it. To me, that just screams potential vote fraud...

Damn nin, too much time on blues for you

Finally, Ogre3D will be MIT License from v1.7. The Ogre3D folks specifically are changing the license to make it even easier for commercial and non-commercial developers to use the engine.

Right on the money my boy. Excatly why I plan to use it in the future.

Seems a lot of people here misunderstand open source. You can use the engine without a single code change as long as you are willing to deal with any issues it comes with, but Ogre3D also has a support section in which the developers of Ogre3D help you for a fee and they often use this to stay in development and fix issues in the engine/add features.

Game looks good, hoping for a multiplayer option sooner rather than later though, wanna smash some monsters with my brothers.
