I don't play TF2 anymore (item drops and the crafting system ruined the game for me) but I'm glad it's still going strong since it's the only arcade shooter around. Shame that we'll probably never be able to play another one without microtransactions or an MMO-style item grind.

There was a Painkiller standalone expansion released last year

I wish the GTA games allowed you to create your own character, like in the Saints Row games. I wonder if they restrict players to only preset characters due to limiting the player interactions or animations. There has to be some good reason for not allowing full character customization these days.

It's even worse as there aren't any girls to play, I mean why not? Story works fine whether char is male or female but they obviously thought 3 dudes is the way to go..

To me Saints Row is far superior exactly because of that. I want over the top open world action gameplay with toppings of insanity and awesome.. not a realistic crime simulation with 3 unlikable dudes that takes itself sooooo damn serious. But I guess some people like this... to me there is nothing more boring ;/

Must be an age or cultural thing

GTA4 was a story told through the character and Niko was the protagonist. It's crafted around his life, where he is, who he is, etc. It's not an MMO and throwing a_random_person00 into a generic story quest. If you don't like that, don't play GTA. You probably won't like any Metal Gear games, either.

Zelda: Skyward Sword had a game-breaking bug. You could bug Dragon's Age and X-COM to kill progress, too.

At least, though, you can play them. Not being able to connect to servers is horrendous.

Could add Vampire: The Masquerade to that. It literlly didn't work on release to most, but post patching from fanbase has fixed, improved, and added content. If it had been a server-driven online only DRM, it never would have made a cent.

If I recall, the only reason why this was even possible was because it was one of the game's developers doing those patches, similar to when Aureal was bought out and shut down an Aureal developer continued to make aftermarket drivers for the cards

Don't forget a lot of that shit last time out was the whole Bluray vs. HD format war.

Well, to a degree. 360 didn't require it and none of the games really needed it. Meanwhile, MGS4 used all 55gigs on the bluray disc not too long after release and was better because of it(I disagree with the people that don't like the video sequences, because it truly is a story driven game and franchise and you have a cinematic experience with it).

Because Neo-Geo had the best arcade games

Are the PS4 and Xbox One really that expensive, historically?

No. My 3DO was $700 at launch. Next question

if recent history serves, barely a mention of the PC platform.

Regardless of if they get mentioned, PC games are always present. And, hell, they don't even get stuck in the Kentia Hall.

Having been looking at this title for a while now but not doing much research, is the grind really that bad? Being an MMO, I would expect there to be some form of grind to unlock more tanks and upgrades or modifications but does it take that much away from the game itself?

The grind is manageable, but once you reach tier 7, it becomes tough, even with a premium subscription and premium tanks(which have increased in-game credit generation, but are generally weaker than maxed out tanks in the same tier). It's extraordinarily difficult to get above tier 8 without a premium account

Why do almost all their "expansions" sound like nothing but glorified patches and general maintenance that you expect for your monthly fee in the first place?

Most expansions add a swath of new features/ships/star systems or completely redesign existing functionality that is outdated or poorly designed. Basically, the same thing you get with any expansion, yet for free.

World of Warplanes (beta) sucks. Major fail in the works there. WoT is decent but the greed of the developers prevents that game to truly shine. WoB isnt even in alpha as far as I know.

I don't know about greed. Other than premium tanks(which are generally average for tier, but increase credit generation), everything is now purchasable with ingame credits, no cash required. The worst thing about the game is the grind, not the greed.

And thus I will continue to torrent whatever I wish to see from them. Which isn't all that much.


I just wait for everything to come out on disc/streaming, but yeah...it's like they don't get it...


And you expect to get it for free? They are not a broadcast network. They charge subscription fees. They are probably just as tied up as ESPN and HBO when it comes to streaming content on the internet due to existing contracts. ESPN and HBO both offer free streaming to existing subscribers.


No, I never said free. People don't want cable - they want ala carte. Something that terrifies the shit out of cable, since it removes them from the equation.

Not directed at you personally, but I don't give a fuck about their contracts. If they want my money, they have to play my way. Or I'll keep doing what I've done for the last 5+ years and stream or buy shit what it comes out on disc.



I'm pretty sure they don't give a shit about you

I can't really see anything outdoing Dota 2 in the MOBA department, it has the strongest community tools I've ever seen in an online game.

Well, Dota 2 has to outdo League of Legends before that comment could even be relevant

epeen wars, my moba is better than yours! en garde!

I've never played LoL so no idea (went to install it and the installer had adware attached), all I ever hear about it is that it's a more rudimentary take on the Dota formula, not that there's anything wrong with that. I know it's very successful though, particularly in the asian markets.

Well, the reason I mentioned it was because it's the biggest MOBA and also the biggest competitive scene by a significant margin.

I actually just started playing this last week and I wish I started playing this sooner. The reason I took so long was because I was afraid of all the things people would say about it such as it being a spreadsheet simulator and the amount of griefing that goes on, but it is not anywhere near as bad as people make it out to be.

The only downside is that there are a LOT of tutorials. I must have read for the majority of my first 15-20 hours of the game, but now that I am out of that phase and flying around it is almost overwhelming the amount of options ahead of me.

And for the record, when I tried to log in this afternoon they had over 50k people logged in =).

When you're ready for nullsec and are looking for a corp, let me know

I think a good analogy would be an all electric car that makes no noise hits someone from behind and the car manufacturer is not held responsible.

That's a terrible analogy, but funny to imagine.

It's a real problem for blind pedestrians. Enough so that car manufacturers have added noise to hybrids and electrics to ensure that they can be heard.

Don't forget the fact that they're working on the 19th free expansion and an economy where you can buy your own playtime.

Could you please what that means.

You can pay your monthly fee with ingame money

And unless you've been in the game forever (and ever) you'll never catch up and you're mostly just fodder for the big boys.


Not really. Making the right friends makes or breaks the game. You can be a pro tackler, fly a drake or cane pretty well, and contribute to plenty of battles after a month or two in game. You get incrementally better stats with age and you get more ships to fly with age, but in order to be productive in 90+% of fleets, all you need is a tackle frigate and a battlecruiser.

Being fodder is a misnomer for the most part. Generally, if you're primaried you're fodder. Guess who gets primaried first? All the names they know and the FC if they have intel/spies.
