Yeah, FF was good, not great though. Still I'm always amazed at the lack of superhero games - particularly done as a CRPG. Someone really needs to make a few as well as a new CoH.

I would bet everything I own that if Jack Emmert leaves Cryptic or if Cryptic gets out from under Perfect World, he would make that a goal. Of course, securing the rights might be a problem. I don't know.

Who knows, maybe Perfect World would let him chase it down if Champions Online finally gets closed. I would much rather see a COH 2 than a CO 2.

Someone said no piracy on consoles? lol, thats like saying that usenet is no longer used for piracy LOL.

Yes its not so transparent and easy for every day joe but yes it is present in both cases:)

This post quote is further proof of my assertion that the Internet needs a sarcasm font.

The post you are referring to was being sarcastic. The whole "real time strategy games are better on consoles" was the hint.

If you never played Freedom Force, which if sales are any indication not nearly enough people did, you are missing out on a fantastic game.

I think it looks like a lot of fun. I probably won't buy it because of the packs/coins system, but it does look like fun. Or at least different.

That skydiving video of the plane crash is pretty tense. Sucks the pilot didn't make it out.

Says in the video comments that it appears the pilot got out and only received minor injury's.

Thanks for pointing that out, I missed that when I was viewing.

In my imaginary gaming journalism utopia, game reviews use a Pass/Fail indication at the top of the page followed by a short(ish) but concise review that lacks spoilers. The more enthusiastic the reviewer is about a strength or weakness, the more descriptive they must be about why. This is the digital age so if the review is based online examples of "poor sound" or "poor graphics" should be available to sample. (screenshots, sounds files, etc. Paired with opposite comparisons for context of course). Also, the only thing in the headline for said review is the title of the game. No quirky word plays, puns, etc.

That's my fantasy. In reality, I basically do the same thing Beamer described below.

News Comments > WildStar Devs on Warplots
7. Re: WildStar Devs on Warplots Apr 24, 2014, 12:45 Jivaro
 
I see so many people say things like "I can't wait for Wildstar" or "Wildstar can't come soon enough". I have done just shy of 20 hours of the beta...I thought it was disappointing and boring. It must get absolutely awesome at higher levels or there must be some sort of game mechanics that I was completely oblivious too because after 16 hours I was just as bored and unimpressed as I was in the first hour.

What is it about this game, or perhaps more importantly, what is this game promising that makes people think it's going to be so good? There isn't anything I could see that was original or different or even all that well executed. I realize it's a beta, I am not talking about bugs. I mean I simply didn't see the potential or what the fuss was all about. Seemed like more of the same MMO that we have been playing for the last 10 years.

It's not terrible and I am sure some people really dig the art style...but as a game I just don't see why everyone seems so optimistic about it.

BlizzCon is the kind of event I could easily see dropping the money for once. 200 bucks is not that big a deal considering everything that goes on at a BlizzCon.

I am too old to consider it an annual pilgrimage though. One year would be good.

I doubt I will pre-order, I almost never do that with anything other than my yearly Madden and NBA2K habit, but I will be buying sometime in the first month of release provided the reviews don't call it a bomb. I dig the DA universe, I like what I have seen in all the videos so far, and Origin doesn't bother me in the least. If this was published by someone else and DA2 hadn't sucked so bad I might even be buying this on day 1.

Nate Wells leaves Naughty Dog.

Damn, Naughty Dog is bleeding like a stuck pig. How soon before Nate is working with Amy Hennig over at EA?

Well, he left one Sony developer for another, Giant Sparrow, so unless Amy leaves EA I am pretty sure they are joining together anytime soon. I am not sure this is quite the big deal that other recent departures have been.

I don't know about the shares bit, out of my wheelhouse, but the acquisition of the rights to the Elite franchise is great news for this project.

If you never use the link provided in an email to change your password and instead go to the actual site yourself...you kill all the birds. (except keyloggers, but that is a different problem all together)

There is no way a normal person can be expected to know what is fake and what isn't...so don't use email links to change passwords. Problem solved.

I really hope we're not going to get just four teams again and have to wait five years (and a hundred dollars in new editions) to get where we are now.

That was my thought, too. It looks great, but I'm not buying it if I'm expected to pay more later for a different version.


I hear that. It was so bad i thought this game was published by Capcom. I was waiting for the Ultimate Ultra Super Street Blood Bowl.

I think that it is a brilliant idea. I imagine it being pretty fun, particularly for those of us that find ourselves not really into playing other people all the time. At worst it is a worthwhile experiment with the genre.

Moar here. Warning, it's K, and since you all slag on them, you best not read it, as you might be hypocrites then. Better to have no info at all, right?



I feel so ashamed. I actually got here starting at FB, which linked to Kotaku, and than came here hoping Blue had more.

It's too late for another MMO.
Wait another generation, then try again.

I am project manager of H1Z1. I read your post and know you are soothsayer. Game is officially canceled. Thank you for sharing your wisdom.

The worst possible thing to do is to defend against critics in a public forum instead of applying that energy into positive posts, gathering fans, and promoting the project via advertising, demos and -- most importantly - forming communities. There will always be critics and trolls, don't feed them. Good luck.

Bob..he isn't the PM. That was the joke.
