Apologies to whatever Blue's crew person I murdered in GTA Online yesterday. Didn't notice until mine vehicle was already atop your twisted corpse.

Uh-huh. Sure you're sorry! That sounds suspiciously like what you tended to do on the PS3 version!

False accusations I never played the PS3 version online!

I think it was Mordecai I killed yesterday. I'm not in the crew so I just ran into them by chance.

If you haven't watched Orphan Black, go watch it. It's truly awesome. Just a fantastic storyline, and watching Tatiana Maslany do all these different characters is fantastic (and no more so than when she plays one character imitating another.)

I find myself literally forgetting that it's the same actress. It just doesn't even occur to me when I'm watching it.

You do realize that shills get paid, right? People just throw that word around willy nilly and they have no idea what it means.

It sounded nicer than "sycophant." Apologies for the vocabulary error.

News Comments > WildStar Off AU Shelves; F2P Coming?
13. Re: WildStar Off AU Shelves; F2P Coming? Apr 15, 2015, 12:45 NKD
 
Launching an MMO that does more than merely turn a profit for a couple years is tough. You can't just copy a winning formula and succeed. MMOs are all about momentum and hitting critical mass.

Early MMOs like Ultima Online and EverQuest succeeded because they were effectively the only game in town. There were other MMOs but they didn't have the polish and scope of those games. Don't get me wrong, they were pretty good games, but as World of Warcraft showed us, a more polished and less hardcore competitor could snuff them out.

But now World of Warcraft has all the momentum in that subgenre. It has the biggest player base, the most content, it is extremely polished, and it has a huge number of ex-players who wander back over and over again because competitors can't catch up to the ten years of iteration and player base building that WoW has had.

The MMO genre has come to the point where it needs to diversify. EVE Online is a great example of a game that has carved out a niche. It's never had any competition, and in my anecdotal experience, has a much larger percentage of long-time players. It's obviously not for everyone, but that's the point. MMOs need to stop trying to appeal to everyone.

Wildstar attempted to attract the vanilla WoW nostalgists, which was actually not a bad idea. It's a group of people who wanted a game that catered to them, and large enough that you could get a viable MMO going around them. But they executed it poorly. Many of us who did raid in vanilla WoW told them that the 40-man concept was not going to work. And the attunement process that was basically just dumped on us without any testing or feedback was not the kind of nostalgia we were looking for. Only hardcore Carbine dick-riders thought that shit was a good idea. And then they spread themselves too thin with crappy PvP that no vanilla WoW nostalgist wants.

They had the right idea. The player base they were looking for showed up to give them a shot, but they fucked it up.

MMO developers need to learn from Wildstar's shortcomings and realize that they need to really focus their MMOs. EverQuest and Ultima Online managed to create games that felt vibrant and full even with only a few hundred thousand subscribers. You can still do that today, you just need to manage your scope and find a niche. And once you find it, REALLY cater to it.

At least you recognize that you're a shill. The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem.

Sure, the action could be serviceable but everything else looks poor

Which sounds a lot like T2 to me.

I never really understand where this idea comes from that Terminator 2 or the Terminator series in general is some kind of masterpiece of storytelling. It's an action movie with some memorable one-liners and a barebones storyline that hits all the Cylon/Time Travel Predestination tropes dead center. The only Terminator stuff that tried to dig a little deeper was Sarah Connor Chronicles, and that had mixed results.

Stupid choice to put such a big twist in the trailer, but I'm still pretty hyped for the movie. Looks like a proper return to Terminator 2 style of action.

First started lurking here to get the skinny on Quake and Quake II mods... looks like I made this account in 2007. I'm wondering if I made an older one at some point. I find it hard to believe I lurked for 10 whole years before even posting a comment. Then again I did primarily discuss games on IRC in the early 2000s, and stayed away from forums.

Speaking of that, considering I've made my way onto pretty much everyone's ignore list over the last 8 years for daring to disagree, I should probably just make another one. Feels like I'm wasting my breath posting about most stuff when I'm really just talking to myself and users like JDreyer who don't use their ignore lists.

Same here, I started coming daily in '98 or '99, but didn't create an account and start posting until 2004. Man, I wish I had my web history from back then. I have no idea how I found Blues in the first place, but it has been a daily visit in my life for almost two decades.

Blue, if it comes down to brass tacks, and you're not making enough ad revenue, please consider doing a Patreon. I know there are lots of people here that hate ads but want to support you in that way. Hell, last week, the ads from another site were bogging down my laptop so much that I am considering installing an ad blocker and whitelisting Blues. I know, I know, what the hell is taking me so long. I just believe that the sites I visit deserve the ad revenue so I put up with it.

I think I got linked to Blue's from one of the other old Quake sites. Maybe Stomped, which I believe shutdown almost 15 years ago.

I'm not sure why your consensus is assuming that the PC launch will be the one to destroy all of their server backends that they've been developing for the last 17 months.

Just playing the odds chief. Hyped launch plus online component is almost a 100% fiasco rate for the first couple days. If Blizzard can still get blindsided by server load numbers as they did with Warlords of Draenor, despite more than 10 years of iteration and development on their server infrastructure, I imagine the same thing can happen to Rockstar after 17 months.

I'll be doing MP at launch

That's fairly optimistic don't you think?

At launch, I'll be frowning at the Social Club launcher for only giving me 182.4 KB/s when my connection can do 10x that while yawning.

Sounds about right. Even in a best case scenario, the online component is going to utterly crumble. I imagine it'll be sorted out in a few days, in time for the folks waiting on port/performance reviews.

I like how Batman says he works every day to fight the stereotype, but his posts are just the same regurgitated bullshit you see on all the LEO forums which basically just consists of patent denials that there is any significant problem at all and that most of these cases are just white cops being picked on by those devious black criminals.

Would be nice if Rockstar had given out some review code to.. uh.. someone, somewhere, who could give us a port report. If this was any other company people would be crucifying them for not handing out review code prior to release.

I think the Grand Canyon's generally accepted to be much older than that. Wikipedia pegs its formation beginning ~17M years ago.

How can that be? I was told by RELIABLE SOURCES that the universe is only 6000 years old?

I don't really see a point in drawing arbitrary lines in the sand when it comes to fiction when it's already perfectly legal to kill and dismember virtual people.

There is no logical or reasonable difference between that and what is described here. Only an emotional one. And we shouldn't be legislating based on emotion.
