So you can legitimately blame lag in this game when you get curb-stomped by SephirothNoScopexxxx?

Only if they model the character after someone like Sigourney Weaver and not some skinny twig like Emilia Clarke.

News Comments > Not Even One "M" in Square Enix MMOGs
18. Re: Not Even One Jan 2, 2015, 22:58 Wallshadows
 
I really like how they are bringing back the Dark Knight...until I read what they have planned for it and nearly flipped the desk. "hey guys, lets take this DD that uses badass Scythes and turn it in to a tank and can only use a Greatsword".

I would have resubbed in a heartbeat to get a little DRK action but I already have a Warrior.

Let me get right on that ACM Season pass before it's too late!

But really, Sega and GB have pretty much dumped all ties to ACM that James Cameron couldn't even find their support at the bottom of the Challenger Deep so I wouldn't expect a lengthy explanation as to why this happened, if any at all.

Which is a shame because AvP remake looks like a triple A title when compared to ACM and generally was an 'okay', albeit unmemorable game when compared to its predecessors.

i'm not sure how/why, but i was able to opt out of the wi-fi repeater thing when i had comcast for a few months this year. I told the guy installing it that i didn't want it, he said ok, and that was that.

I'd like to think there is some kind of permanent file in place for ISPs to review and be like 'we see here you've been in a shit deal before so we'll give you a free pass this time'.

I think Ubisoft is a close contender to EA for being the most shitty turdburglar video game corporation out there with Gearbox not far behind. Activision is still riding on my awesome experience with Nightmare Creatures from back in the day but have not bought a game from them since the first CoD: MW was released.

Hold the phone, is that Transformers from the 80s or the 'newer', shittier YTV variation which sucked nuts?

If it's the former, I'll have to cancel my plans for the next two day or two.

News Comments > On Sale
13. Re: On Sale Dec 24, 2014, 08:54 Wallshadows
 
This is probably the worst Steam sale ever. Most of the titles which have a big sale are meh, only cutting 33% is a terrible sales point (unless this is a front page bug), Rage has so far been the 'best' title to come out of their community vote sale, and you can generally find the games which are/will be on sale cheaper elsewhere.

Thumbs down.

News Comments > WildStar Update Plans
1. Re: WildStar Update Plans Dec 17, 2014, 13:59 Wallshadows
 
They sold WildStar as a 'hardcore' MMO and players gobbled it up talking about how the MMO community needs to stop being so casual-friendly. That worked for about a month until those who felt they were hardcore players realized they aren't and left after a couple of months and the more casual players likely never made it out of the first 30 days.

WildStar could have handled the overall content better even if it were designed for hardcore players. The 12 step program to get in to raids, for example, was by no means difficult to achieve unless you count being gated behind drop rates, monotonous grinding, and asinine design decisions as being hard. For example, the Pyromancer part of the attunement is easy on its own but being an open world quest boss who gets harder with the more people around him was a nightmare seeing as how it funneled the server in to that single point and you had to be either be lucky or swoop in like a vulture to get credit.

Either way, I believe the ship has sailed on WildStar. It was a great grind but after that and since I stopped playing (about two months in), I have heard nothing but bad news about Carbine's situation. Realm closures, staff being let go, and content drops not meeting their monthly expectations doesn't bode well. Maybe they'll hold on to a niche market equal to that of The Old Republic but from what I have heard, even that isn't likely. They could scrap or delay the next content drop or drop behind that to bring in some kind of ToR F2P/sub design to bait more potential subscribers on top of being more casual-friendly but I have a feeling that if it were that dire, NC Soft would just pull the plug as they have done with several other 'okay' MMOS in the past.

I mean, they might be doing a lot of people a favor by not allowing them to play the game if it sucks...and even if it's good, well, too bad for what is likely a large portion of the PC community and their overall sales!

FFFFFFFFFFFFFffffffffffffffffffff.....gosh. I almost bought Wolfenstein when it was $16 on their VIP sales for being a member but didn't and sort of regret that.

I just need to be less pants on head retarded and look for these sales more often.

Does this mean we can expect a drop in price on the first one? Honestly, it's still retailing for 50$ so even 50% off sales on Steam makes it more than I'd still pay for it.

Pretty stupid article which I really didn't even bother to read. Blizzard made good on their launch issues by giving five free days to an issue which is now long since over and everyone has moved on from.

EVERYONE had the Garrison bugged, didn't matter what territory or server. The only way to 'fix' it was to log out, and good luck logging back in.

But what you're whining about is that blizzard mishandled the launch of the expansion, even when they've had 3 other expansion's launch without a problem. I guess you didn't read about the DDoS attack or anything right?

Yeah, everyone had the problem, but the fact is is that they allowed it to happen for fourteen hours after release which leaked in to lasting two hours on the NA servers before an actual fix was put in place. I don't know where you heard by logging in and out that it worked, otherwise it wouldn't have caused players to entirely bypass the garrison and level through dungeons or having most of your server occupants standing on or near the looking glass. If it worked for you, I am very jealous because nothing I could do worked and I just went back to bed.

I am likely exaggerating the connection issues though. I expected going in to the game with latency issues and was not surprised to see my latency shoot up beyond 200ms. It would come down as I adventured and then I would hit several disconnection walls along the way which reset my character to a previous zone and then it eventually died at about 11 and its been down for me ever since (I assume it was acting this way overnight).

If it were a DDoS though, wouldn't the issue persist from the start, remain throughout, and cause maintenance to come sooner? Tanaan Jungle went smooth as expected, likely thanks to their beta stress tests but it sort of went downhill upon stepping foot in Frostfire.

I'm not going as far as some are though in expecting to be compensated. It just sucked the wind out of my sails when I got in to the grinding rhythm with my pals and guild which will hopefully be resolved today.

Sorry for being butthurt.
