All of Microsofts games are like shitty F2P games these days except you have to pay $60 on top.

They are just so profit driven and don't give a lot of value, I don't think I could ever go back to their ecosystem. It was just one big wallet bleed, every little thing they can ding you for and then some. I expect a business to make money but when they put that priority over shipping quality products and giving me consumer value then fuck them. They are still paywalling fucking Netflix while everything sold today has a free interface to it.

I really dislike this trend of making your site/forums just be reddit, it makes finding information a pain in the ass. Smite did a similar thing recently.

Why do those morons think this is funny? Oh right, they're mouth-breathers that work at McDonalds...in Florida. Doesn't really get much dumber than that, does it? I swear when I see/hear/meet people like this I think, 'The Idiocracy must be stopped.' Of course, Churchill said it best....

Honest labor is honest labor, I don't know why you would look down on another service industry worker when you should know what a tough industry it can be at all pay scales. I'm sure you didn't magically appear in your dream job either, life is a journey for everyone.

If the problem is disconnections, then they're probably more interested in fixing that instead. Frankly, I doubt they even want to let you save your "progress" with the bounties. The bonus is there to encourage longer sessions, so why allow people to get the same benefits when playing in short bursts?

You can't fix disconnections though, its an inherent issue with internet play. There are so many variables that its probably better to have some sort of temporary save state time allowance. I have no idea why you're so against this when all people are asking for is like 5 minutes of grace time if you get DC'd. It is completely reasonable.

I'd like to be optimistic but man, recent history with Gearbox and outsourced stuff isn't exactly encouraging.

I love my FireTV, its basically a better version of the Ouya and the Roku to some extent. I settled on a build of XBMC that does 1080p playback just fine and having Netflix/etc built in is just gravy. I'm still in the messing around stages but its a fantastic little unit with some flaws to work out like any 1.0 hardware release. Once I find a way to get unsigned apps onto Amazon launcher instead of sideloaded through the Apps/Settings menu I'll be rollin.

I'd like to see them index all apps with the voice search and they really should have an IR fallback in the next iteration.

It's not progression, though... They're endlessly repeatable, randomly-generated side quests. You just happen to earn a bonus if you do at least 5 at once.

You're splitting hairs, you know exactly what people mean. The bonus gets you rift frags which gets you into more rifts which gets you more loot. When you have an hour or two to play the game due to friends/family/etc and get DC'd which means starting over then you'll understand. No one is saying its the end of the world but its a bummer and they could find a way to save state progress.

Well that sucks if you're having issues (I've never been disconnected a single time since patch 2.0, except when I go AFK for too long and time-out)

Some people only have a little bit of time to play every night and progression loss is a big design sin.

Law of averages. People dont trust mathematics. The most exact science on the planet, and people dont trust it. What's next, people believing in bearded father figure dieties and zombie saviours??? Oh wait...

I think the sample size here is much bigger than intended for the law of averages to apply. But maybe he just doesn't like Christopher Nolan films, he cites 2 in his examples Not my favorite director either but I think comparing the films he chose is apples to oranges and that's the problem with ratings systems in general.

As much as I'd love to see more sci-fi, more BSG movies isn't what I had in mind. I keep hoping for a new Star Trek (show) where the cast has the sort of chemistry that TNG did. Hopefully the success of the film could float this sort of idea but unfortunately the movies are way too action oriented for my taste so it would probably be awful.

If the NSA wants to spy on you there are far more easier and better ways to do it than kinect. All the gamers bitching about it have an iphone, a PC , ipad, facebook ,Instagram Twitter etc, a drivers license and social security number...stfu already.

I doubt anyone really cares, its more that they don't have a use for the camera permanently pointed at them in the living room. It has little upside so why bother?

Yea Barbs are fine, but it was a big change from what people were used to and the way things had been in the beta for months. It took some time for people to adjust. Which is why I don't want to see major changes to the Crusader this quickly, just small adjustments.

I don't think Crusaders are as well balanced as Barbarians were back then is the bigger point to take from my comment. Blizzard seems to agree as there appear to be several large changes coming which is great. I think now is actually the better time to make big changes before people get too settled in.

The irony is that my build is getting nerfed with with the damage reduction to Heavens Fury, while everything else is getting buffed. The Justice buff won't make up for it, as Heavens Fury is my elite killer

The legendary that buffs it (name escapes me at the moment) is the reason its getting nerfed, it was way too easy to shotgun elites with it. I know what you mean though, I always hate finding a build that really works for me then it gets adjusted later.

News Comments > On ESO Charges
16. Re: On ESO Charges Apr 7, 2014, 12:37 Verno
 
I have to disagree with you there Verno, This is done for one reason. Itís to prevent anyone with a copy of the game to play it for free. Anyone that has a copy installed from either the beta or a friendís account could just jump on with their account and start playing for those 30 days.

I don't see a problem with that scenario as long as the account has paid game time and I feel like you fight gold farmers with a strong abuse department rather than with billing. If there's one thing I've learned with MMOs over the years its that the gold farmers will always find a way as long as the demand is there.

You should never have to enter payment information initially. I am glad I did not purchase this game just because of that. I could care less that it is subscription, but telling me I can't play because I don't enter a credit card that is ludicrous.

Ideally the game should just come with a one time game code that gives you a month of use. Doesn't solve the gold farmer problem but I think those kinds of issues should be dealt with separately. I think they like getting the money of people who stay subbed game because of forgetfulness/etc too.

I enjoyed both Borderlands, but gazillion of guns doesn't mean shit when everyone is farming out 4-5 weapons. At least D3 added Adventure mode to keep it fresh.

I liked both games but I wouldn't say I loved them. Like you though I find them too unbalanced and repetitive. I'm in no rush for the next Borderlands game unless they're changing things up, the formula is a bit stale for me.

Sorry I don't have time to sit around on my computer all weekend like certain people here. It appears the IRS leak story was wrong and they rectified it. So what? It doesn't make the whole story of bullying to get their way any less ridiculous. Even liberal loon Bill Mahar thinks it's fucked.

Don't let that stop the hypocrites from ranting, though.

You don't see any irony in calling something bullying when the people complaining are doing exactly the same thing to them? I call it fighting back. If anything their way is better, they are just using public pressure which comes from the fact that most of the public identifies with their complaints. They're not bullying anyone. Incidentally I thought most donations were a matter of public record, the government audits them after all so I'm not sure why anyone would think its some super secret thing that was leaked from a tax return.
