At least these guys were up front as to why it was getting pulled, unlike some certain other companies.

Knowing $OE, they'll shove it down our throats, regardless of how many people are voicing their displeasure over their recent actions (myself being one of them). It'll be just another typical Smedley Screw Job.

This game had such potential to be great, and all it is, is a cash cow so blatant, it'd make $OE and NC$oft jealous. No way in hell I'm touching this game anymore, and coming from a 25 year BT fan, that hurts to say it.

Until they bring back City of heroes, NC$oft will never get another second of my time.

Two questions...

1. How many of those accounts are controlled by the Chinese Credit bureau?

And two...

WoW is one of the best games of all time.

Panda-land is an awesome expansion.

Can't wait for the next expansion.

I am sure someone is going to go after you for that but I wanted to say that I agree. I don't play now, but I started very near launch and raided all the way through BC before leaving due to a severe back injury that effectively ended my PC gaming hobby for a long time. I buy each new expansion, play through it solo, and then put the game back on the shelf. (sorta speak) The back injury just won't let me go back to raiding which is too bad because I have a great guild that made it a lot of fun.

It is my opinion that what makes/made WoW great is that for the majority of people who have played it, they have enjoyed it for a substantial amount of time. It seems like nearly everyone has a "time" where they played and liked the game. For me it was vanilla+BC, for example. Other people thought WotLK was great. For most of those people though, that "time" comes to an end. Something happens, an expansion or their guild breaks up usually, and the game becomes less fun. Maybe it becomes repetitive, maybe they don't like the latest nerfs, maybe they just don't find another guild that was as fun as the previous one. Sometimes real life just gets in the way. The bottom line is that WoW has been immensely entertaining to a huge amount of people. Every game, MMO or not, wears thin after awhile. MMOs evolve to try to battle the weariness but I think it is inevitable for all but the most dedicated of fanpeople that any video game will eventually become boring and repetitive.

WoW wasn't the first and it wasn't the most original, but it's impact on the industry and the gamers definitely makes it one of the best games ever made. At least in my book. We play video games to have fun and WoW was fun. For a while anyway.

How much is ActiBlizz paying you two?

I have a 560ti and suffered from that blue screen problem that started happening with new drivers about i dunno 3-4 months ago.

anyone know if they solved that prob? seemed like quite a few 5xx users had the prob.

Yep same card and haven't used a new driver since 214.11 because of annoying bluescreens.
Will not be updating until confirmation that this problem is fixed.
The funny thing is it doesn't happen while playing games only on the desktop or surfing the net.

I'm still using an 8600GT, and I've been having the same problems, seemingly at random, but it's become a lot more frequent in the last month.

As big of a BattleTech fan as I am, I won't touch this one until they put in a social environment, and add in PvE.

The only "guarantee" you get with EA is that they're going to find every trick in the book to screw you over.

Blue, if you remember, Bettman was Stern's right-hand man before he took the NHL job. It's no secret that basketball popularity has dropped badly before the two NHL lockouts, and surged briefly during them. It's called Bettman's still taking his orders from Stern. Why do you think we have hockey in Florida, instead of two cities that deserve it in Quebec and Hartford?

Wake me when they actually add in a PvE element, and the ability to socialize outside of the 'Mech. You know, stuff that over half their player base has wanted since before this game entered alpha-1 testing?

Well if it wasn't for the exorbitant fees charged by LA, SWG would still be in existence and of course we can thank them for the destruction of such with the release of the nge version.

Good riddance!
Amen to that. *unfurls the Tempest banner*

The only thing "pathetic and unacceptable" is this dimwit senator from Coruscant... errr, California... thinking he knows what's best for people, when in reality, he couldn't string two sentences together without a legal team and a damn good speechwriter.

Having read the Gamasutra article, I'm reminded of why I never read anything they print. To them, nothing is ever going to be as good as World of Warcrap. So therefore, they'll incessantly whine and nitpick everything to death.
