News Comments > Ships Ahoy - SimCity; Refunds Offered for Launch Issues

Not sure if it's original or not and has been posted already but this showed up on my facebook feed from a friend with the added message that it's an 18 hour wait to reach their support line.

How many more bridges can EA burn this week? Stay tuned!

The lawsuit brought on to Monster should be thrown out of court and the mother should be held liable for gross negligence and capitalizing on her daughter's death (if that's even a crime).

You have a kid frequenting Starbucks and regularly consuming energy drinks with a heart condition, it's either shitty parenting on not educated the kid and the dangers of caffeine consumption, mom not paying attention to daughter, or the kid was just a Darwin-award waiting to happen.

...or it could just be natural and is a classic case of correlation does not imply causation but try slipping that one by on a parent who's on the warpath to cash-in rather than being responsible and could have prevented this whole mess to start with.

So they're using the sales of Windows 8 to justify the whole 'PC is dead' angle?

Okay.

News Comments > Dead Space 4 Cancelled?

I would like to see a third-party Auditor go over the books and identify just how well funded these AAA projects are and if the money put forward to support such projects is efficiently spent or just pissed away in hopes that the return will cover it.

Does that ever happen?

As for stopping any kind of astral body which is on a collision course towards Earth, it all depends on the composition, density and the time of discovery before the time to impact.

While a nuclear option would prove useful for an object with low-density, C-type objects where it's barely being held together under its own gravity it would be detrimental against a S-type objects which are chunks of Iron and other metals. However, if an object snuck in through the blind spot caused by our Sun and there are only days until impact, this is really our only option.

We would need around 20 years advanced notice in order to develop, test, and send a satellite to the incoming object in order for a kinetic impact to offset the object just enough to barely make it by us. That's if everything goes well.

News Comments > Steam Top 10
3. Re: Steam Top 10 Mar 3, 2013, 13:51 Wallshadows
 
I thought it would be more like a Beach head-style game where you're actually, you know, sniping them as they slowly approach your location until I saw the Steam video which has maybe 10% of the entire video dedicated to sniping and their X-Ray kill shot camera.

The rest just looked like 'meh' over-the-shoulder, half-assed, Gears-style shooter which turned me from curious to buy in to a big nope.

Don't be so down, guys. It could be every bit as good as the first Mortal Kombat.
That was an awesome film! It's a shame that they ruined the sequel by recasting Rayden.

But they killed Johnny Cage right away so it sort of balances out.

News Comments > On Diablo III's Future
13. Re: On Diablo III's Future Mar 2, 2013, 00:55 Wallshadows
 
Makes you wonder what they'll introduce or fix in the future expansion, especially with Jay no longer there to crack the whip. It certainly seems like they've been trying to back up on a lot of design decisions since he left which is the silver lining in this debacle.

Unfortunately, a lot of the damage has long been done and I'm sure there are many players who are simply turned off at the concept of returning to Diablo 3. Especially now that Path of Exile has been in open beta for a little over a month and feels more like a revamped Diablo 2 system which is what players such as myself wanted rather than what we were given.

They'd have to make some fairly drastic changes to bring me back.

I'd bet the farm that a large portion of the people who talk shit about DLC and micro-transactions end up buying it anyway. My friend kept bitching and moaning about how he'll never buy another COD game but still bought the season pass after the fact.

'My purchase won't make a difference' mentality and then all the sudden we're in the nickle and diming era of gaming.

Putting it on hold so they can find a way to tie it in with the new movies, even if that means an overhaul.

That's my guess.

I played some Minecraft with my friends and it was pretty fun. I didn't really become a team player though and just wanted to explore the game but they accepted that and allowed me to go off an do my own thing provided I would trade them the things I found if ever they needed them.

I decided to go full Dwarf and built a 44 wide x 77 length x 20 high base at bedrock level with pillars to make it seem like a Chinese knockoff version of Khazad-dm in Lord of the Rings. I then built a side room to house my Rubber tree and Wheat farm, a central platform for my portal to the Nether and to my friends' base.

I've just been preoccupied with GW2 as of late to play it for any great amount of time.

News Comments > EVE Online Boasts 500K Subscribers
3. Re: EVE Online Boasts 500K Subscribers Feb 28, 2013, 09:14 Wallshadows
 
I fired up my subscription but I didn't play it enough previously to know whether the changes made to PvE were substantial or not through the various expansions. I assume they have though and I'm secretly reaping the benefits.

As for the grind, yeah, that's always going to be a part of Eve as well as the time to skill up to pilot certain ships. I spent 27 days gearing up for an Orca that cost roughly 700 million ISK and my major source of income was mining .5 space with a Retriever that only made ~16 million ISK an hour. Belt rats are mostly worthless to salvage in Highsec and the bounty reward is usually 10 - 25k ISK so a drop in the bucket while I sit.

Working my way to buy PLEX now to extend my subscription.

My friends were all set and ready to play their faces off again, started new characters and everything. Two days later, they can't be bothered to play it.

Sometimes I'm not quite satisfied with my friends when it comes to games because once one decides to not like it, the other will follow suite and abandon ship until something else catches their attention for a bit and do the same.

Rinse and repeat for the shepherd and his sheep.
