News Comments > World of Darkness Cancelled
19. Re: World of Darkness Cancelled Apr 14, 2014, 21:52 NKD
 
That sucks. I was hoping CCP would move beyond EVE some day, but I guess they will live and die based on how long EVE lasts. Probably a long while at this rate, since it has no competitors in being a massive economic empire simulator.

But still, it would be nice to see CCP try their hand at something else. And I love the World of Darkness setting. Unfortunately I don't think we'll see any more game titles other than the pen & paper variety in that setting for a very long time.

We almost didn't get the last one.

haha pretty sure bats was just trolling the star citizen haters.

Well the joke is on me then I guess, well done

Not really trolling. How come a game that was supposed to be done 6+ months ago isn't playable at PAX today!? The game is supposed to ship in less than 30 days. WTF!? Why wouldn't you have people playing the game?

Its a scam. Game is going to blow.

OK, Cutter!


What, you guys don't have issue with a game that should be "gold" (ships in a month) that isn't playable at a gaming convention?

Not really unusual. Most games are not playable at conventions. Hell, many come out when convention season isn't even going. But what does it matter anyway? Wait until full game is released, read reviews from reviewers I trust, buy accordingly.

People at a convention waiting in line for 2 hours to play something are probably pretty fucking invested already and aren't going to give you a good unbiased opinion.

We need to really start holding people accountable to their "This game is going to suck!" and "This game is going to be awesome!" predictions. Especially the people who are traditionally incapable of admitting they were wrong.

4k is also pretty useless unless you've got a ginormous display or are sitting 2 inches from your screen. That's going to slow adoption down greatly.

Your 50-60" screen at 10 feet away is not going to benefit you watching TV and movies, even with high quality source that hasn't be compressed to shit. I'm sorry, but if you claim to see a difference in that scenario, then you're just buying an expensive placebo effect. If you've got a 120"+ projected screen, then you might want to consider it. But even at that size 4k isn't a compelling must buy, it's only a minor improvement.

Well, look at the upside. Things need to get bad enough before a real revolution can begin. We're not there yet, but at this rate it'll be coming before overlong. The elites reach has far exceeded their grasp.

Until the average citizen can't keep food in their belly or electricity in their homes, nothing will happen. Lazy people with creature comforts are incredibly hard to push into action. Escapism is very easy in western society.

Wallshadows wrote on Apr 9, 2014, 14:45:
So should I be legitimately worried about this and change all my passwords or is it just something that's being blown way out in to the stratosphere?

Changing all your passwords right now is pointless unless the system in question has been confirmed to be patched. Many systems have not been updated to fix the problem, so you'd risk changing your password and having your new one compromised as well.

Since there's no way of knowing what data was compromised, no one can really tell you how worried you should be.

For important passwords, wait until you get confirmation of a fix then change your password. Or if you get confirmation that the system was never vulnerable in the first place, don't worry about it, or change it anyway.

Blizzard is different as it doesn't sell games through other stores (Steam, Origin, GMG, etc) and because it isn't done for anti-consumer reasons.

How is Blizzard not putting their games on ANY digital platform somehow better than EA just not putting their games on Steam?

Yeah, I'm not really seeing the difference. Blizzards games all tie you into their proprietary system in order to play them. He says it's not for "anti consumer reasons." Well what's the fucking reason then?

Not really sure why anyone would be surprised by this. UPlay is standard Ubisoft stuff at this point. If UPlay was a dealbreaker for you, you should have stopped following Watch Dogs at the first mention of Ubisoft. Don't pretend like this is some kind of unexpected ambush.

Yeah, it's long past due to rethink this whole "democracy" thing, isn't it?

Steam really does have serious volumes of junk on it. A game being on Steam used to mean a certain level of quality.

One man's junk is another man's treasure. I'd rather be able to buy games I like, than be restricted to only games you (or some random Valve overlords) like.

Yep, totally different studio, same parent company. Whatever they may be working on at Bethesda, I doubt they were sitting on their hands waiting for Zenimax Online Studios to finish pinching this loaf.

Not really surprising. Too much controversy was stirred up about it, he didn't really have much choice. It's all about appearances.

Give money to a political candidate who supports a religious whacko cause? No one cares. Give money to the religious whacko cause directly? String him up from the rafters. Appearances.

If a CEO weren't allowed to hold conservaturd beliefs and contribute to conservaturd causes, a good percentage of them would be out of a job tomorrow. It's all about perception and, frankly, a little bit of random chance about whether some shit you did goes viral.
