News Comments > Guild Wars 2 MMO Migration Campaign
10. Re: Guild Wars 2 MMO Migration Campaign Nov 27, 2013, 11:13 Tim Collins
 
The game just is not fun, straight up...was looking forward to this for YEARS......YEARS.....its basically a F2P micro transaction game at this point. They totally were not willing to put the effort into the game to make it fun, was just a launch and milk type thing.

and as for Elder Scrolls online.....I can't say much cause I'm under NDA but I would honestly say, don't bother...it obvious no passion has gone into any of these games, its just a do good enough for people to buy initially and milk it till something new comes out.

The running story is that it cost more to run Winamp then they make off it. It was said that an offer of 5 million plus trailing equity was offered but not accepted, winamp is thought to be worth 8 million. RIP winamp....I just installed foobar2k.

Battlefield itself is useless, the goal here is to sell the engine to other game makers. This Frostbite game engine is basically a self contained OS.

EA was unwilling to put enough effort into SWTOR beyound the initial cost, they were trying to recoup their money and forgot that people were playing the game everyday while they just sat there.

Nvidia didn't get into the consoles so they want to optimize everything that comes out that can be played in their discrete video cards.

This is just a performance optimization strat for pc games, considering I own a Nvidia card I'll take it.

This is a press release because Nvidia wants to show what they are doing to support PC gaming.

News Comments > The Elder Scrolls Online Also Features Microtransactions
23. Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Also Features Microtransactions Aug 23, 2013, 15:22 Tim Collins
 
People are idiots, I mean actual idiots when it comes to MATH, subscriptions work, its called revenue, its easier to have a recurring charge then it is to make a sale, micro transactions are a decision to buy, subscription is a decision to KEEP paying..

This is an attemp to maximise profits and the fact that everybody else is including microtranactions I think is the reason why they are being included here...imagine going to your shareholders or even better your shareholders going ...."ya....every online game has micro-trans now why doesen't this game, arn't you suppose to make us as much money as possible" and giving a response that dosen't get u laughed at.

As a 30 year old gamer these are battles that need to be won now so that the young generation dosen't get plowed over till were all drones like in the Matrix....

F microtransation.....F anything that does anything that detracts from a game in terms of enjoyability and signals to the GAMER in a obvious manner that this is nothing but a money grab.

Ill be honest, guild wars 2 felt like a giant waste of time, couldnt even stand leveling my character to max level which is a REALLY bad sign.

Dosent mean that gw2 isnt innovative, their wep switch mechanism is top notch.

News Comments > The Elder Scrolls Online to Use Subscriptions

A. Its kind of expected at this point they will mess this game up, if a Star Wars MMO goes bust, anything can....anything.

B. If its a typical game from them its going to be SUPER, SUPER buggy when it comes out, all their games are, lack of polish.

C. The ONLY model for a AAA MMO IS $50/$15 type subscription model
1. Free MMOs are 100% garbage from my experience
2. Free MMOs have a stigma

UPDATE: 320.18 were causing freezes with 560ti, FYI

320.18 = Random Freezing, noticed when the mouse started acting funny....rolled back to a old(er) 320.xx release

320.39 beta fixed this and 320.49 were stable for me

new beta is stable for me

320.18 was so bad I was pulling my hair out before I figured out it was the drivers....

fyi

i7-2700/GTX 770 system

Chicken can be a bish, my personal fav is to hand the mongolian bbq guy my plate of chicken/pork and let him do his magic.
