CitizenCon seems like an appropriate name.

Ok...I hope you are pleased with yourself...now I have coffee all over my keyboard.

<snip>...but probably what everyone should do is avoid this game for a good year and come back and see where they're at.

Unless...of course...being part of the development roller coaster is something they are actually enjoying. This particular forum board doesn't have a lot of people gunning for that, but obviously Roberts has drawn the attention (and funds) of quite a few people who do.

News Comments > Star Wars: The Old Republic Expansion Announced
15. Re: Star Wars: The Old Republic Expansion Announced Oct 6, 2014, 16:17 Jivaro
 
I like playing this game and I am looking forward to this expansion but.....there is nothing currently and nothing in the (announced) pipeline that will make people like it that didn't like it before. As for the F2P...think of that as demo mode. Like many so-called F2P games, if you are playing on a regular basis and doing endgame content you might as well sub.

I wish the combat mechanics were less WoW-inspired, but overall I enjoy myself. Probably because I have enjoyed what is essentially 8 separate single-player storylines....but also because I can do endgame and PVP content and progress and be competitive without devoting my life to the game or feeling like it's a second job.

Don't think of it as a fee. This game is providing an emotional outlet of sorts. Think of it as a donation to a worthy cause!

I think the folks who come to every single thread just to bitch about the game should pay for the game. They are definitely getting their moneys worth....

When TB does his review I will more seriously look at this. These "ME FIRST" reviews aren't just all over the place, they are written horribly. All reviews are largely subjective but this crap is useless to the reader.

If this dude is referencing Pachter as additional "proof" that VR is bound to fail, then it's pretty safe to say there's no point in reading any more of that crap article. FAIL.

News Comments > Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Released
37. Re: Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Released Sep 30, 2014, 14:09 Jivaro
 
These days I don't really have much troubleshooting to do on my PC either. (unless something catastrophic happens...but that can happen with a console too) I make my decision about which platform to play on based on a many factors, modding and genre are the two biggies though. If it's an RTS or if a modding scene is in the forecast than I will buy it for PC whenever possible. Fighting and sports games are good examples of games I almost always get on console though. For something like this game, and the Batman games for that matter, if there isn't going to be a modding community of any real significance I have no reason to buy it on PC. Maybe if I move a PC back out in to the living room again that will change. This is also why I tend to wait a month or two after release to buy games though. For all I know a modding scene I am interested in messing with will pop up.

A late UPS trailer arrival has delayed delivery. We're adjusting plans to deliver your package as quickly as possible. / Delivery will be rescheduled.

Motherfucker!


Did you order it on PC or PS4? I want to know your impressions of it regardless, I was just curious. I have been leaning towards PS4 (not buying it for a couple of months) just because it seems to be a game built around playing on a controller and also because I don't think there will be much of a modding scene for it.

I grabbed it on ps4, as that seemed to be what all the streams were, as well as the reviews.


If you get around to it..shoot me a pm on PSN letting me know what you think after playing it for a bit. The reviews that are out today are pretty damn positive. I may have to rethink my initial plan to wait on this one. TB gave it the old "I can dig it"...and his reviews tend to parallel my attitudes toward gaming.

I find this article reprehensible. Hiding the names of the authors simply because they are female (melodramatic much?) is just another thinly veiled attack on gamers as misogynist neanderthals.

At first I questioned the anonymous thing too...but after giving it some thought, I can't say I blame them. I don't take it as some sort of slight though. I take it that they have careers and lives that they want to lead without having it all turned upside down by this mess. There are completely valid opinions on multiple sides of this thing but there is this amoebic mess in the middle filled with some pretty vile people. Would these essays carry more weight with real names? Sure. Enough "more weight" to make it worth the possible hassle? I don't think so. Not while the "Escapist" is the venue anyway.

It started with a woman who was pushing her video game being unfaithful with the people who were writing reviews to help sell that game. That's kind of an important detail to leave out, although it was for an indie title and not a AAA game.

Wasn't this immediately proven to be a lie? Like, the person at Kotaku with whom she had a relationship had never actually reviewed her game, much less given it a favorable review?

Yes, it was. That doesn't keep people from continuing to throw that shit up like old shrimp though. (edit: I am not saying that the gaming journalism profession is somehow pure as the fresh fallen snow....I am just saying that this particular accusation really needs to die as it immediatly destroys a person's credibility to keep citing it)

According to something I read in the Wall Street Journal last year, the Dolphins and the Raiders are in he top ten for jersey sales in Europe. Curiously though, the Dolphins are the 4th best selling team jersey in London whereas the Raiders don't even make the top 10.

The top 10 for London looks very much like the Top 10 for Anywhere, USA. Pats, Packers, Steelers, Cowboys..etc etc etc.

News Comments > Steam Music Leaves Beta
5. Re: Steam Music Leaves Beta Sep 24, 2014, 23:05 Jivaro
 
Not bad. Has a lot of room for improvement but still capable enough. Curious to see where they take this. Cloud storage for non-game soundtrack music so that you can play any music you own on any Steam device you log into would be epic. I realize that most people probably only use one device as their Steam gaming rig, but that is not my situation. Additionally, the future decision to buy a Steam console would be made much easier if I could stream my non-game soundtrack music to the box via cloud storage rather than my home network.

If you are complaining or feeling betrayed about a company being sold to another company you are hopelessly idealistic and possibly delusional. When somebody says "I will give you 2 billion dollars for that" you say "yes". Every. Single. Time.

I would congratulate him if I knew him personally. It would be stupid to hold on to a company or any single game for sentimental reasons or because he felt obligated to his fans. It would be really stupid to do it with this kind of money at play.

It is only a game company and it's only a game. Life moves on and there will be plenty of both in the future. Getting offered this much money for something you created is a once in a lifetime opportunity and he did the sane thing by taking it.
