Too little too late. What a waste of using Turbine skills to bring such a game out now. MOBA's are on the decline already, the novelty has worn off.

MOBAs have been around since the early 2000's. Are you SURE the novelty has worn off? Also, are you sure you know the definition of novelty?

Plenty of people still enjoy MOBAs today. I may give this a try.

Only EA could draw something like this out so long. Any programmer could have fixed it in 5 minutes at most and that includes testing the change.

Is this sarcasm or comic exaggeration, or do you actually think this is a quick fix? What do you think a programmer is going to do in a few minutes?

Considering it only took hackers 2 weeks?


More sarcasm or comic exaggeration, I assume?

Wow....lots going on in here....99% not about the games listed...hahahahah

/65 tards on my tard list. Lots of them banned over the years (used the script until the update, then added all of those people), lots of them no longer around, but some are still very active. oh well. My life is busy, I don't have time for some of the garbage/attitudes - they get blocked.

//17 messages in this thread are blocked - and I have no doubt I am blocked by several.....

People disagree with xXBatmanXx or don't care for his whining so they become 'tards' (classy, btw) and go on his ban list.

How do you deal with conflict IRL, cupcake?

Thankfully 2.01 condenses the crafting mats. Lets mats, more stacks, very nice.

And yea, like in a WoW expansion, you'll be replacing most of your gear inside an hour lol.

Excellent. Thanks for the info, Fion.

"I can call ‘Flappy Bird’ is a success of mine. But it also ruins my simple life. So now I hate it."

WTF? how can making a game ruin ur life? a little criticism shy, are we?

Ever since the game launched there has been a vocal group claiming that the download numbers for the game were artificially inflated and that brought his other games under scrutiny. If you didn't do anything wrong and if you're not used to being in the public eye that kind of negativity can be tough to take. I can see why he's unhappy and wants to be left alone. And let's face it, if he was making $50k a day he can afford to walk away now and just say, "Fuck it!"

If I were him, I'd leave the game up to keep the cash stream alive and just disconnect myself from the internet. Hell, he could go spend 3 months on some secluded island and then just purge his e-mail/messages upon return.

As mentioned yesterday in On Sale, Get Games Go has a sale on BL2 as well, some of their prices are cheaper than the Steam equivalents, so check there first.

Good tip. I always check cheapshark.com before buying any game anymore.

There is an ongoing closed beta of TESO (not the weekend ones) which is open 24/7 and continually played. May I just say this game is in pretty rough shape. Being in the beta has literally shown me why I will never buy or play this game.

This CE/Imperial thing really was the icing on the cake for me. Besides the boring questing, terrible terrible loot, lack of group mechanics, no auction house, no housing, no dueling capabilities, and just general poor gameplay mechanics.

do they still have a text-to-speech engine for the NPC voices? that sounds so stupid...

I didn't hear it in the latest beta weekend - everything sounded good. Plus, why would anyone care about that. It's just placeholder stuff.

I saw significant improvements from a few beta weekends ago to the most recent one.

You forgot the biggest part:

"The Imperial Edition will also have exclusive digital content including the ability to play as an Imperial in any alliance"

Buy the CE and get access to a whole new race.

Wow, the game has only now just gone into Beta, and they are already pushing the Pay-2-Win button.

I hope this trend does not go farther than this, or the game is going to end up like every other F2P Pay-2-Win trash!

So they did not just enter BETA (they've been running betas for many months now) and this is in no way pay-2-win.

Why did you even post?

You have a source for these sales figures and the development budgets of ArmA3 and DayZ?

Yep, Google. You have fingers, use them.

Translation: Due to the possibility and probability of me being wrong, I'm not going to cite my sources. Instead, I'll ask you to go out and try to find the information yourself and then just say you're bad at google when you can't do it.

You were saying? Don't bother taking the foot out of your mouth, it suits you.

At a glance, none of the links you provided show development budgets for Arma3 and DayZ. See the original quote above if you're confused on the sources you need to cite during your second attempt.

Hey... at least you tried.

And so much for EQ Next. You'd think those idiots would have learned from the failure that's DCUO. MMOs do not belong on consoles. I don't some shitty control scheme because it has to be designed for console controllers. Pass.



FFXIV works just fine on the console and it is damn near impossible to tell if someone is on PC or console w/o asking them if you're both in the same group.

Why do you continue to make such moronic assertions?

Objectively bad games do not top the Steam best sellers for weeks on end... So go ahead and keep on with your meaningless hate, but don't tire yourself out too soon; there's no telling how long it'll be on this list.

bla bla bla. Already have my request in for a refund.

You know SIMS is one of the most purchased games ever? Nuff said.

But you're a habitual cry baby and DayZ is not for the faint of heart. You requesting a refund is understandable. You being given a refund is absurd.

I got The Bureau - XCOM at Get Games - www.getgamesgo.com - for 7 bucks today in case anyone is interested. I am intrigued enough by the premise to risk that much at least.

Thanks for the tip - I may give it a try too.

Great study. Completely ignores reality, but great study.

It makes sense. If your 'network' slows down or stops facebooking then you will to. Plus, the study cites data that shows a decline in FB traffic since Feb 2012.

I personally dislike FB. I only have an account to keep track of notifications from one organization that I am affiliated with - otherwise, I have no connections on the system and find it useless. In addition, the interface is pretty damn awful and the constant nagging that they do about updating your profile or 'do you know this person?' is a major turn-off.

Plenty of things "make sense" but are not true. There was no peer review, the model is based on diseases, and they are guessing based on how My Space rapidly declined. Guess what? Facebook has already outlasted My Space and as much as some people like to demonize it, social media is not a disease.

Haha so I see you read the article but not the study. Read the study, then respond or don't and remain ignorant.

HAHA, I see you can make stupid assumptions based on nothing. I read the study before I responded.

Apparently you didn't read past the introduction then, unless you completely ignore the fact that they modified the traditional SIR model based on the dynamics of OSN (see equations 3a - 3c). Taking this into account, the disease model actually is now perfectly applicable to social networks and they even explain why.

Thanks for posting this. I saw his last response and thought "He either lied about reading the study or is too stupid to understand it so this conversation can go no further."

MMX requires Uplay. Sadly that is a pass.

I've been dabbling with MMX. I think it has potential to be a fun RPG but the damn engine is so slow/intensive that I hate to run it. No other game makes my computer's fans run so hard.
