No, this is still stupid. You still have to put those items in the bank tab from the resourse tab. So whatís the fricking difference if you still have to move them from one section to the other? NONE!!! Itís still a task to do it. Lame!!!

Maybe I'm confused, but I know I saw a lot of recipes with a count on them and I had no crafting items in my inventory. It was definitely pulling them from somewhere else. In which case, I'm confused by what you mean. I'll have to double-check.

Players can now do the production portion of crafting without having to pull the resources from their bank.

THANK GOD. Glad to see they're working on getting discovery to work the same way.

Also, I read that games can still get distribution through Steam using the old method of reaching out to Valve (or Valve reaching out to developers). The $100 just speeds that process along if your game isn't the hottest game-of-the-week on social media.

Divinity's Reach is a good example of mind-blowing graphics. Absolutely stunning how alive they made that city feel. If you lower the graphics all the way to the bottom, it does look meh. But on full, there's no MMO that compares to it IMO. It'd do well even in a single-player contest of graphics.

I _really_ don't want to see these fucking "unlocks" in pre-purchases depending on how many people preorder it. It makes sense with Kickstarter... they have more money to add more to the game. But on a pre-purchase? Fuck right off and die.

News Comments > Steam Greenlight Adding Listing Fee
7. Re: Steam Greenlight Adding Listing Fee Sep 5, 2012, 12:17 Frijoles
 
I tried out the new listing features this morning. I like it a lot more. It doesn't tell me there are 700+ to review, it just gives me a small list of 10. And you can set which type of games you'd like to review. After you do 10, you can queue up more if you like. They've also added some text to the thumbs-down to indicate "would you buy this on steam". Makes it easier for me to say no.

And very happy with the fee. There was so much crap it wasn't worth looking at. Now we can hopefully stick to real games.

'cause I wasn't wasting enough time on Reddit. Now I can browse games I can't play yet.

I've down-voted a bunch already. Some are very much ripoffs. One looked like a joke (Spiny Lady?). I'm taking it serious though. Checking out videos and such. I love the idea.

It's been a while since I tried it, but when I did play it a few months ago it was pretty fun. It is very much like Elemental, but a lot of bugs were fixed. It didn't crash every 5 minutes. I will eventually buy it during a Steam sale. Too many games right now though.

Their system is requiring a lot more materials to make items. And some of the materials required are a bit hard to find. Vilas of Blood being one of them.

There's a Charr starting dynamic event that has you guarding some junk metal from an attack. You get wave after wave of attacking bad guys. After the event (about 3 or 4 minutes), I had 5 or 6 Bloods and an almost full inventory of shit to salvage/sell. I highly suggest heading over there and seeing if the event starts.

I'm loving it. I found a "secret" hidden area in Lion's Gate last night that was just awesome (and had pirate booty in it). I hope there's more stuff like that because I totally wasn't expecting it. The world vs. world stuff also reminds me a lot of DAoC, which I miss.

Don't let some of the reviews fool you though. There's still quests. They just moved them to hearts instead. The dynamic stuff is interesting, but still just quests. If you hate MMOs then I doubt GW2 will change your mind. If you enjoy MMOs, though, then GW2 does a lot of stuff right.

And don't let GW1 put you off. GW2 is nothing like GW1.

Well, I knew going in to this that it was going to be horrible port. And they certainly delivered on that front. I haven't tried the HD fix yet. I have a controller, so I may use that. I wish I could use a keyboard, but since the mouse isn't locked to the game, I end up clicking off screen and the game minimizes.

I think I'll let it sit in the oven a bit longer while I play GW2 and hope more mods come out.

I could never get past the last set of levels, when you're on the roof...

Whenever I got stuck, I'd give it to my 5 year old. I don't know how, but he managed to finish the game. Trial and error (dozens of times) appears to be the solution.

Dota2 didn't seem as bad as HoN (community wise), but I've only played that one a few times.

They say they have other copies of the source code,

Good lord, I should hope so. Can you imagine bringing your one and only copy of the source code to your game to a convention?
