From what I've read, you aren't necessarily safe even in high security areas. And yeah, there appears to be a "you can never catch up" issue. At least in something like WoW -- you can start from scratch and in a couple of months be as geared as anyone else is for the most part...

You're not safe anywhere. In high-sec you can still get shot at. Admittedly the aggressor is going to get blown up by the SPACEPOLICE but they take time to get there. If there's enough people (or firepower) to take you down before that happens then you're going to get blown up. Of course if your attackers misjudged your tank or mess up then you can loot their ships and moonwalk out of there....

Don't fly what you can't afford to lose.
Been playing Eve since 2008. Also been in goonswarm (and it's various re-incarnations from when we forgot to pay the bills in delve), since then so my views skewed a certain way.
Never done any of that high sec mission pve stuff, just went off to null-sec and never looked back.
Plex is great. Pull off one big scam and that's it, never need to pay a sub. New players just days old selling non-existent capital ships to idiots and then buying game time and another (capital ship ready) character with their ill-gotten gains is just brilliant.
I can understand people being bored shitless if they're trying to play the game on their own, it's just not fun that way. Get in a good corp and never look back. Hell if your Billy NoMates just join eve-uni or something to get the hang of it, make some friends and then head off into the great unknown.

Absolute horse shite.
It's so they can sell it to mugs twice. Diablo 3 for PC does look like it was designed for a console so thats a complete strawman of an arguement. Also Dust 514 links PSN and the PC so it's not like it hasn't been done before.

It's a mod?
We have a full UE3 license, it's not even a UDK title.

Like Steam's description says, a decent-sized content update is going to drop soon too, adding a new TO map, a duel mode, new weapons, and other things (there's a beta thread in the forums). We're pretty serious about supporting the game

Didn't realize you worked over there.
Damn fine game with the only thing possibly missing being mounted combat, but that would involve a complete redesign and new maps so save that for Chivalry 2.
Just give me more maps. Maybe one more tier of weapons for all classes, but ignore majority of the suggestions on the forum as they're completely retarded.
I've already bought copies of the game for friends and they're hooked. Plus I get to oneshot them with the maul (HELL YEAH).
Also fuck archers. Teamkilling is OK if its an archer (especially if they're just camping at the back).

It's a great game and at that price it's a steal, though to get the most out of it you really want to be playing with friend.
Especially if you're on the same ts/vent/whatever server so you can laugh at them when you "accidentally" decapitate them when they run in front of you.

I've been impressed with MWO. There's a real sense of weight to your mechs, something which to me Hawken has a problem with and seems a bit more floaty.

Kind of bemused by the hate this game is getting on this board. Yes there were bugs on release, yes multiplayer could do with balancing, but you can say the same thing for every other game released in the last 10 years or so.
It was is a damn fine game and a refreshing change from yet another "realistic" FPS.
Now if they can do a Terror from the Deep expansion and release a map editor so the community can do their thang then it's all gravy.........

Having a high willpower on a soldier increases the chance of psionic ability. If you put all your rookies through then you're not going to get many. If you wait until they've leveled up some and have avoided critical injuries (which give a corresponding loss in willpower), then the percentage will be much higher. I was seeing about 50% of my soldiers who had willpower 80+ testing successfully for psionic ability, yet only around 10% of my rookies (willpower 35-40).

The actual "Second Wave" options they are listing were already in the game, there was a user patch shortly after the game released which activated the hidden options so you could toggle them on/off each game you started. Some of them were a bit buggy at the time, but good to see they've enabled them for those of us who cba downloading 3rd party patches.

Not exactly surprising. As soon as you go the public company route then you are immediately at the mercy of the investors/shareholders who are in it for their dividends.
Once it's stopped paying out then they will push for a breakup/sale to maximize their own profits. Employees are just another expense that the investors don't give a shit about.
It's even worse for those companies that are listed as you're immediately at the mercy of the short sellers, no ones ever in it for the long term.

Yeah, I mean it's not like it would have an escape pod or anything.

Ok...So what happens when someone shoots the escapepod? NO wait. Dont answer that. It doesnt matter anyway, this game is ages away and its obvious that Chris Roberts will cater to the MMO crowd first and foremost.

Are you actually going to actually read any of the copious amounts of information already posted about this? Or are you going to continue to latch onto a single line, before kicking off on another rant while completely missing the point yet again?

I remember playing wing commander on a 286, and being jealous of my friends with 386's as they could use emm386 to turn their extended memory into expanded, which enabled the game to show your hand on the joystick moving in tandam with your input, and the vidscreen in the cockpit to show your wingman talking to you.

Also burnt by AoC. The combat/movement mechanics are so much better than any other mmo on the market and the graphics/environment are still top drawer today which shows how amazing they were at release 5 years ago.
Funcom completely fucked the content though. The big draw for myself and a lot of others was the mass PvP content (combos, fatalities, etc) and the promise of mass siege warfare in R Howards world.
The sieges were still continually crashing years after release and the PvP side of things got zero love so the people (who hadn't already left after exiting the starting area and finding that Funcom hadn't actually completed the rest of the game), moved on. In an attempt to stop the hemorrhaging FC started to churn out more and more half-baked PvE content (which was dumb as majority of PvE focused players had already left), before going F2P.
AoC could have been amazing. It was such a disappointment that FC fucked it the way they did...

There's really nothing Blizzard can do to stop this method of hacking since it falls on the user for using the same information and not using an authenticator.

That is nonsense. They can establish 2 step authentication and log computer access. A user account and password will suffice once you've logged in with a certain computer. If they see a login from a computer they havent seen before then two step auth. If the person has your email as well then u are kind of f-d. This is why users need to establish different login details on that email.

Steam does this, when you login from somewhere they don't recognize they won't do anything until they verify you can get into the email associated with the account.

That is what blizzard should be doing. Using the authenticator is a lazy solution and an indication that the company doesn't want to deal with the additional security measures that are becoming standard on everything else.

We're blizzard, we can have shit security if we want.

Blizzard has shitty security and could do a lot more. People using the same username/password combination across their email, gaming accounts, online banking and some wanky fansite are what I would refer to as technically retarded and deserve everything they get.....
