Stardock's premier IP, SteamDRM'ed. Just what the series needs!

As opposed to being ImpulseDRM'd like the previous title?

Liking the new UI so far, and it's just an alpha so I'm sure there will be more updates on that front.

There is quite a huge difference between the PvP the devs are trying to sell you with this game, and the actual pvp that goes on in it.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pK65BUhNwPs

Actual pvp (the above video) doesnt look anything like the stuff hyped in this dev speak.

That video is better marketing than the official video.

Devil's advocate but seeing that TOR is successful enough to get an expansion and rustling so many jimmies here is pretty entertaining.

It's nowhere near as successful as Bioware hoped, but they are making okay money off this if they are getting their overlords to sign off on new feature and content additions once in a while.

From what I've played in beta it is the least shitty and the least watered down of all the WoW clones to come out. Good complexity, responsive combat. Other than that, I haven't really played enough to judge.

Yeah he's got a history, but if ya look at his posting history on Blues, he's been rather insightful into other things beyond his own software,

like suing forum posters for defamation?
I think maybe Derek Smart has mellowed out.

Nah he just has a program that detects when he's having an "episode" and logs on Hellbinder or deqer instead of his other account.

That release date makes me feel sorry for the devs of this game.

The release date is genius. Sure, there are other games coming out, but what they are really trying to get is WoW players. Specifically, WoW raiders. Raiders who have been doing the same content for months, and will not be getting any more content for another 6-7 months. The long span of time between the last content patch of MoP and the release of Warlords is going to lead to a LOT of burned out players by June. Players ready for something fresh.

Spent a little time in the beta. The game oozes style, combat feels really good, the setting and class design are unique, and they are focused on delivering solid end-game. If you're into raiding MMOs, this might be something to keep an eye on. If you're looking for something brand spanking new and innovative, or an interesting story, there's nothing to see here.

It's like a less watered down version of WoW. From what time I've spent with it, mechanically it's a lot deeper than WoW. There seemed to be many more statistics and other character build considerations to balance.

But it's also NCSoft, so... heh.

Looking for, but don't see "Win7/8 64 bit". Damn.

With a minimum requirement of 6GB RAM, you're going to need to be on 64-bit in practice, even if it's not a 64-bit executable.

I scrolled back to see if you had mentioned them earlier but it seems to all be ranting about storage space like it's 2004.

Nah, it's 2014. Many of us have moved on to SSDs to decrease loading times and stuttering in games that stream content into memory. Unfortunately SSDs are significantly more expensive per gig so needlessly huge games force us to either be more choosy about what we have installed at a given time, or force us to install them to slower spinny disk drives.

Yes storage is cheap. Fast storage is not.

I thought maybe the delay might have been to rewrite some of the story/missions and incorporate some of the NSA/PRISM stuff after the whole Snowden leak.

But now I'm a bit worried after seeing those GIFs. If they are accurate then... Fuck

Yeah I'm sure they delayed the game to revert the game to a 2004 graphics level for some inexplicable reason and that single out of context GIF going around is representative of the game on next gen and PC.

Still shouldn't look that bad you would think.

Yeah. Posting a picture without any context it's kind of hard to figure out what it might be from. It doesn't seem likely to be anything representative of what we'll be playing, though, given the visual polish Ubisoft puts on their games.

The Pirate Bay, in its entire history, hasn't been inaccessible for any significant period of time. Domain names have been confiscated, and brief downtimes as backups are brought online elsewhere, but by and large these industry groups have expended enormous time, money, and effort to accomplish nothing.

Kids CGI movie, maybe, live action no!

(re live action) I'm having flashbacks to the Battleship trailer, and imagining this as a gritty, LOST knockoff (and not in a good way).

Not that I think notch would go for that...or at least I hope not.

Notch's eyes are bigger than his stomach (as it were), but he's not dumb. The biggest risk is a Minecraft movie overextending itself, rather than being an absurd, gritty take on what's an E rated video game.

Plus it's not like Minecraft has some serious reputation to uphold, or a fanbase that's going to be ultra offended if the movie isn't Oscar quality. And it's not like they are paying a dime to make this happen. In fact they probably make money just letting the idiot studio have a go at it.

This kind of shit makes me wonder if it's time to just abandon gaming entirely. The industry is doomed to descend into bald faced greed.

Whatever their reasoning for the $60, it isn't greed. The $60 price point is too high if they are aiming for profit. It's out of reach for their more cash strapped customers to justify. It costs them basically nothing to offer these boosts, so they could afford to lower the price as much as they wanted to optimize sale price vs. number of sales. In short, if they charged $15 they'd make a lot more money overall.

WOW is pay to win. Its finally official...not that we didn't know that already....

Sorry, not seeing the pay-to-win here. This gives you zero advantage over someone who leveled to 90 on their own, except that it took you less time to get there. But since it isn't a race, there are no winners. There is no accomplishment in it. You're skipping over a boring grind in old boring content that requires no skill to begin with.
