News Comments > Ads in Titan?
6. Re: Ads in Titan? Jan 23, 2012, 21:03 Frijoles
 
Oh god, I'm having flashbacks to Tabula Rasa. The whole, "we left Earth in a hurry and all we managed to grab were the DELL PRECISION XYZ MODEL M! Literally, we abandoned earth from the Dell warehouse and this is all we got!"

Hellgate London's ads weren't bad, but they fit with the game for the most part (and looked well aged). Guess it depends on what kind of game Titan is. Most likely the ads will suck and not gain the end user anything.

News Comments > Elemental Website Re-Launches; Fallen Enchantress Beta for War of Magic Owners Tomorrow

Last version I played was version 1.4 back in August. Impulse doesn't show an upgrade available, so I guess that was the final version. To call it buggy was understatement of the year. I don't remember much these days, but I do recall it crashing non-stop. The AI was also really bad (I don't think it knew what spells were). Spells were pretty much all the same and you ended up only using a small handful of them. The mission system was always "go over here and kill these guys". The equipment interface was horrible. In fact, the whole interface was horrible. And there were just weird bugs (like my character changing skin colors randomly).

I do believe it's all coming back to me now.

And yet, I played the hell out of it and stuck through the crashes. It definitely had that One-More-Turn Civilization vibe to it. I loved watching the color of the dead world change around me. I enjoyed taking over huge areas of land and then punishing anyone who dared threaten me (something I do in Civ also.. looking at you Gandhi). If you could get it for cheap, it might be worth it. Depends on how willing you are to relaunch the game every half hour.

Not really sure there's any need for a demo. It's going to be more of the same. If you liked the first two games, there's a 99% chance you'll like this one.

Think of it as demoing Origin, not ME3. This way when the full-on ass pounding comes with ME3, people will be ready.

I didn't get this email. Oddly enough, that makes me a bit sad. Elemental was buggy as shit and crashed every 15 - 60 minutes. But damn I played it a lot. Figure I put in about 40 hours. Perhaps it'll show up on my Impulse list tomorrow. I'll have to dust it off and find the password (I abandoned it when GS took it over).

A so-called “blackout” is yet another gimmick, albeit a dangerous one, designed to punish elected and administration officials who are working diligently to protect American jobs from foreign criminals. It is our hope that the White House and the Congress will call on those who intend to stage this “blackout” to stop the hyperbole and PR stunts and engage in meaningful efforts to combat piracy.

Gonna have to increase the bribery fund.

Wow, they have key rebinding but not for movement. WASD is hard-coded it appears (at least not in the controls area of the game). So they thought about key rebinding and then decided to fuck everyone over who doesn't use WASD. *slow clap*

Hopefully there is a key binding file and their UI programmer is just an idiot. I'm afraid I don't have high hopes though.

Edit: Posts on their forum say movement bindings are in the full game, not in the demo. Weird.

You can press escape on the login screen and it will ask if you want to opt-out. No mention of that anywhere though. My EA account didn't work.

I think most of my friends still playing are just on cruise control now (more so with the yearly thing). They don't really want to login since they're bored, but there's nothing else to play. That and they have a huge amount of time invested in their characters, so they don't want to quit.

Bring on WoW 2.0 and a character wipe.

At least they're listening. Witcher 2 was one of the few games I actually played from start to finish. Can't wait for #3 or whatever they work on next.

Surprised it's still in beta. I've been playing it off and on for the past two years (more off than on). Fun for a few hours.

Boggles my mind that an MMO can have a queue in place and not have a way to reconnect at the same place is the queue.

30 minute queue last night. I think I saw two that said 1:15 hours. Yuck. Reminds me of having to login to WoW right after work so it would be ready by the time I could play. On the plus side, once logged in things are stable.

Anyone know if you jump the queue if you get disconnected?

It has not moved back to WotLK. Its easier than ever before. You get high level equipment even if you fart and most bugs and balance issues from 4.0 still exist, while new ones have been added again.

I'm confused. Are you saying Wrath was hard and high level equipment didn't come from farts? Perhaps we were playing different games.

If they start moving back to where they were at either TBC or Wrath, they'd draw them back.

4.3 has moved back towards Wrath. The 5-man instances remind me a lot of ICC. They're fun to run. They will, of course, fuck this all up with 5.0 and their talent changes.

Also, most of my guild uses RealID. I think it sucks, but meh. They message each other when they want to raid and everyone logs in. I guess that's the point.

11. Re: FFUUUUU BLIZ Dec 16, 2011, 12:48 Frijoles
 
This is aimed at people who don't want to use RealID... like me. I have friends in both Starcraft and WoW (and soon Diablo). They're in my guild. I know them well enough to chat with them online. I don't know them well enough to give them my email address. Using a BattleTag, I can give them my name+4 digit code (why bother remembering it, it's listed for you in the game) and add them as a friend to all my accounts.

I don't see the issue, and I'm glad to have it over RealID.

Didn't they say they had 10 million in the investor conference call thing a couple of months ago? Seems like lying in that would be a very bad thing to do.

Also, 4.3 instances are awesome. Cata still sucks, but at least they've started to fix some of the issues.

I'd watch if they changed the format to something like the Oscars. Roll out the red carpet for devs. Best engine. Best voice actors. Less hype and flashing lights.
