I chose to not download the leaked GoT episodes since it only hurts me in the end by creating an unnecessary waiting game to a series which is already hard enough to wait for when it's done.

I also subscribed to HBO since I got in on a cheap promotion for it with Shaw so last night was the first episode I ever saw live on TV. I am pretty disappointed in HBO the rest of the time though, it usually has less variety than AMC and what it shows is junk.

I wonder what the requirements would be if this were a Ubisoft title and port.

Is that why Alan Tudyk is leaving Adam Baldwin out of Con Man? Either way, I really don't care much about their off-screen antics if they can deliver a solid performance on screen. I can still enjoy the work of Mel Gibson and Tom Cruise even though they're both certifiably nuts so what's one more to add to the list.

Japan strikes me as an odd one, they're perfectly fine with tentacle rape but splatter blood around a map in a game and they flip their shit?


Probably the same branch which governs their porn industry. I remember they got all up in arms over a dildo or something in a semi-secret apartment.

Really? You honestly think it's not going to suck honkin huge big fat donkey balls? Because I believe it'll probably be even worse than that.

I'm honestly not a big fan of J.J. Abrams but I have more faith in his ability to bring an entertaining piece of work over than anything George Lucas touched since TESB. Star Wars seems to be a better fit for him than Star Trek since he doesn't have to rework it to suite a more action-oriented vision of the universe which may put off some viewers as it did in Star Trek.

He just needs to stay away from the usual shit like creating an unnecessary amount of often stupid subplots without offering any kind of explanation or payoff.

The second teaser trailer to Star Wars is pretty awesome. Right in the nostalgia!

News Comments > WildStar Off AU Shelves; F2P Coming?

The formula is largely the same because it's known to work. Studios will throw in their own features to give it a new coat of paint but the game will largely follow the same structure. Most games do it well enough to get by but they just don't have an arbitrary amount of players to earn any kind of respect for their moderate amount of success.

Unless you're specifically aiming for a niche market, doing something different doesn't mean it'll have a greater chance at succeeding any more than it does with the already existing formula.

WildStar is simply another MMO which fell far too short. While NCSoft may have stated in the past that there is a future for the game, I wonder how many negative earning reports it'll take before they realize the game is more of a liability, cut the cord, and finish off the gutting Carbine.

They need to hotfix in a better drop/salvage rate on Arcane Dust. I often have more Forgotten Souls than them and it just feels broken.

For those who had a smoother experience, there's a Blue's News GTA Online Crew that was formed for the previous-generation console versions that you should join that if you are looking to play with fellow Bluesers, or whatever it is we call ourselves.

Blues Brothers, duh!

What they considered as a solution to the Trials-related issue won't actually resolve the problem at hand. Getting trial keys isn't hard, you can take a handful of minutes to go clear a Rift and most folks have many kicking around in their bank from chaining Rifts to get gear. The problem is the Trials grind where groups and players who are capable of hitting high rifts have to go through the process of leveling each trials key they have separately.

Think of it as buying food with nothing but nickles. The act of paying takes longer than enjoying what you paid for and once it's done, you have to do it all over again!

A solid solution was provided a long time ago: Instead of going through the typical bullshit of progression through each trial, work in a system which saves your best trial and allow you to pick up from there with new keystones. Bam.

The developers are idiots though and it's always an up-hill battle to bring QoL changes or just general improvements.

News Comments > Path of Exile Expansion Closed Beta This Month

Really looking forward to what they're bringing. Hard to believe they want to go up to 10 acts and here we are hyping Act 4. Long way to go and I'll enjoy every season of it!

I'm taking a break from it now though, seeing as how I got the four armor skins from the current one-month race and planned it out to play the Diablo season until Act 4 is released. By then, I'll come back in to it fresh to soak in all the newness!

Working on a Delsere's Magnum Opus Wizard but it's slow going. Unmodified Arcane Orb is simply an awful spell even with the Frozen Orb rune so I'll have to build around something else until I get the 6 set in order to effectively farm outside of Torment 1.

Also, early season slow-rolling greater rifts to get all the gems out of the way, hhrghrghrgnrg. Annoying.

Well I had to go with Bell Fibe this time around but I managed to get a 2 year deal for 15/10 Mbps for $50 per an no caps. And I've no complaints so far.

That's a hell of a lot better than what I have now through Bell. I assume it's due to being in a two year contract?

I just tried to reactivate and the price was 20883. I thought I had enough gold in my account for 30k but must have spent it on garrison crap before I went on my WoW hiatus last month. Oh well, got to make time for GTAV next week anyway.

When it first got implemented yesterday, it would grey out and say you didn't have enough gold if there were none available at either the price it was listed at in the window or in general.

Might have to try it a couple more times, perhaps?

They're making an extra five bucks off each token sold. Players might break up their three or six month billing at reduced monthly costs just to put it on their gold so even more money for Blizzard.

Unless it jumps to 50k+ they'll probably bring in even more money from subscriptions.
