A pure desperation "make what ever we can cash grab" before the bottom falls out move, if ever.

Looks like a mix of Homeworld and Supreme Commander, I don't see anything new or improved here.

Ever notice when they want to sell RTS games the videos show battles, lots and lots of battles. What they never show you is how 99% of these games are all about resource gathering, and build trees, as in how fast can you get your economy up and running and go on the offensive. That is neither fun or attractive to me.

I won't touch another RTS until they swap the balance to (90% action, 10% resource gathering/base building).

In fact I promise to buy at retail the first RTS to come out that does away with resource gathering and base building entirely, and plays more like a giant toy chest. You simply pick and choose what units you want, the battle location, and get to lay out your and the enemy units however you see fit. A battle sand box. Now someone go and make a fortune off that.

Looks rather a bit of a botch up, things work, kinda. If that is the best they can show, I would hate to see the real flaws.

Another house makes the mistake that realism is better than story telling.

News Comments > WoW Re-Passes 10M Subscribers

Marketing 101 - assignment: your company overbooked massively an event. 80% of the paying customers could not get in for three days, until a quarter to a third of them gave up, at which time the rest could then access the content. Spin this to make your company look good.

WOW is still the best MMO ever, but, this roll out was a fiasco, and now that it is over, players have started to enjoy the new content that by all reports is excellent. Next roll out I am blocking out a week to play something else until the dust settles.

News Comments > ArcheAge "Illicit Gains" Revoked
18. Re: ArcheAge Oct 23, 2014, 07:36 Jonjonz
 
So many game companies seem completely clueless in regards to the conflict of interest for employees who play the game. Any time you have players with elevated rights, playing in the same game as paying customers, your asking for trouble. Not specifically naming ArchAge for this, but as long as it is allowed, mischief is inevitable.

WOW, Blizzard just shot themselves in the foot. Booking a schlock rock band that poses as hard metal is pretty noobish. What's next, Winger?

Looks more like Homeworld over terrain and with atmosphere. Been there, done that, but if they get rid of the boring and painful resource gathering aspect, then I am all for it.

Too the apple fan bois raging that HP lacks the 'quality' of crapple products.

I have an HP and a Ipad, guess which one stumbles the most while surfing the internet. Ipad. Which one frequently locks up entirely on some web pages and wont surf another page until you do a full cold boot? Ipad.

That is the kind of quality that only the slickest of most dishonest marketing can overcome.

The new comcast exec is just a fancy spin doctor, charged with papering over as much as possible future gaffs, rather than actually making real changes to how they operate with customers.

Jumpers annoy me in any game, but GW2 is a whole game world built around jumpers fantasy, that anyone gives a hoot about their mad skillz.

Refreshing to see a successful game house not get wrapped up in ego tripping on "our next game is gonna make you it's bitch" fantasies and instead keep on polishing the gem that has been feeding them for ages while satisfying millions of paying customers.

If you like console platform jumping games mashed together with free for all open world follow the mob to the next timed event, hurry on down! If your new to MMO's try WOW's free to level 20 trail, if you want the real deal.

Another entry making the mistake that hi-rez graphics will make up for boring same old same old been done to death death match.

There is nothing new here. There is a reason games like Minecraft and World of Warcraft are the top dogs in their product markets, and it is NOT hi rez graphics.

Farcebook is missing the boat here, they should play this like a F2P game, ie, basic Farcebook is free, but if you want various status enchancements to your page, privacy etc, it's time to sell packs that might include a chance to win one of these features.

This other site will fail because whales base quite a bit of their enjoyment of their massive cash shopping on being OP and lording it over the F2P peons.

PACKS, any game that sells packs is usually a missive ripoff designed to milk whales, and antagonize everyone else.

Look at those prices, and people wonder why WOW is still king of the hill, its' called value. You may drop a couple of hundred bucks getting into Wow for 1 year with all the expansions, but your getting top shelf content, that you can enjoy without having to spend another 200 for gear.

Companies are starting to realize that in the long run catering to a handful of whales just decimates the player base eventually, as most people have too much sense to pay hundreds to thousands of dollars for a video game.

News Comments > Another Diablo III Season Exploit
5. Re: Another Diablo III Season Exploit Sep 9, 2014, 07:37 Jonjonz
 
This is getting to be a sad trend from game publishers, letting cheaters get away with exploits.

It turns every game it touches into a pathetic version of post nuclear war savagery, or simple minded mob mentality, like the tools that ransacked the local Wal Mart in New Orleans back when the flood happened.

The more this happens, the less I am inclined to play these games.

Nothing lowers my respect for game companies than when they patch glitches, but let those who benefited from it, keep their gains, especially when knowing that the company's logs can easily identify those who glitched.
