News Comments > The Old Republic Doesn't Require Origin

I really don't get the bitching over this. I mean, yeah, early on without having any info, it was easy to conjure up doomsday scenarios. But look at the facts:

1) You don't have to have another client running constantly, so you don't have to worry about having "dozens" of clients going. Once you've downloaded the game, you never (if you don't want to) have to run Origins again.
2) You can still get the game from a non-Origins source if you prefer a physical media.

Now you can still say stuff like "it won't go on sale", but where's the rationale for that? Yes, EA doesn't have to compete with other digital distributors, but they still have to compete with all the other MMOs out there. While it's possible they'll never have the game go on sale, that'd be foolish from a competition standpoint, and I suspect EA has enough business knowledge to realize that.

Now I haven't really looked into Origins that extensively, so if it turns out that you've got a download limit, or install limit or something like that with SWTOR through them, then I can see a valid complaint. Barring that, it just seems like a lot of people who aren't going to like anything that EA does just because it's EA doing it.


I don't get why you don't get why people don't like this.

Physical media is largely a thing of the past for many people. I, for one, can't recall the last time I bought a game in a box.

EA's digital distro service, in the past, was awful. Even if Origin is better, I don't like EA, and would prefer to do business with Steam.

EA is doing this simply to try to get a slice of the Steam pie, and based on EA's prior track record, I'm betting their service will NOT be something I want to be involved with.

I'm not basing my decision on "EA hate" but on EA's prior performance. You imply that people not being enthused about anything EA does is somehow irrational or unfair - but EA earned that.

I played Fallen Earth when it first came out. Quite enjoyed it to be honest.

Agreed - very NOT WoW MMORPG.

I had a lot of fun with it for a couple of months.

I think my capacity to play an MMO for years has gone the way of the dodo...I figured if I get a few months out of one, it is pretty good, on my scale.

Actually, in all honesty, if I get enough enjoyment out of it during my free month to justify the cost of the game purchase, I figure they did okay.

There's a good game under there, but they really should have pushed it a month to hammer this @#$% out.

Seriously...this is all clean-up fixes that could have been easily polished out before they shipped.

Not to belittle RIFTs success, but 1 out of 20 people from a seven year-old game that, by most accounts, you've basically replicated almost verbatim...that hardly qualifies as a "bite".

Maybe a nibble.

might as well play this since Diablo III aint coming out for the next 3 fucking years at least. F*** Blizzard

I whole heartedly agree! Blizzard should have utilized the SVGA supporting engine created for Diablo II in 2000 to create Diablos III through X without (hopefully) changing core gameplay very much through the last 10 years. After all, it sold well so clearly it was good enough. We could very well be anticipating the latest chapter in the Diablo saga right now, Diablo XI: Dungeon NYC, if it weren't for Blizzard's short sightedness and lazy programmers. Oh i hope it has launch day paid DLC consisting of hats!

Hats? Hats?! HATS!!!

Where's my credit card?

Well the graphics look downright horrible, but if the gameplay can achieve that sort of Heat like intensity it might be worth looking at. That means planning and pre-work, if it's just busting in like the wild west, guns blazing, than forget it.


You mean like Rainbow Six? Oh...wait...nevermind.

News Comments > Mount & Blade: With Fire & Sword Patch
1. Re: Mount & Blade: With Fire & Sword Patch May 9, 2011, 14:42 JoeNapalm
 

I found that F&S was even more unforgiving than M&B when you first start.

I strongly recommend getting one of the debt collection missions (either kind, lord or town, whichever you can get) and ripping off the quest giver once the debt is collected. The time limit is for collecting the debt, NOT returning the money to the proper lord - so you can spend it all on weapons and armor, then avoid the quest giver until you can pay them back.

Also, go find heroes. Your troops are going to get mowed down by musket fire at an exceedingly alarming rate. Gather up as many immortals as can stand one another, and try to make sure one of them is handy with bandages.

Several missions in, I finally got my hands on some REAL armor, and it made a world of difference...now I can survive the occasional stray shot pinging off my breastplate, vs punching through my breastbone. That "Three Musketeers" look might be dandy with the ladies, but it's still cloth-other-than-Kevlar to bullets.

(That said, I can't bring myself to give up my jaunty hat - probably going to pay for that, later.)

Yeah - I try to stay away from politics, here (I come here for the things that I use to tune that shit out) but damn...the FCC really needs to get a spine.

Mark my words, data caps are @#$%ing bad, bad news.
