This looks better suited to a single player game. And this comes from someone who loves MMOs.

Yeah, it'll be sad to see this reduced to the typical MMO grind. At least with a single-player game they could be a bit more creative and come up with a good story for it.

Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice!

While the concept of net neutrality seems complex, the solution is simple: We should classify broadband access as a utility.

And that will solve all our problems! Not!

The actual solution is more competition. The article even admits the big telcos have thwarted competition.

The only way we're going to see competition in this market is if the last mile is not controlled by a monopoly or duopoly the way it is now.

Reloading guns? Hmm, that hardly seems necessary, I see why they released a version without that.

Can't imagine playing an early JA release. Even the full release felt like early access last time. Maybe if they create a decent enemy AI that doesn't cheat horribly, I'll be interested.

So the Redskins lost their trademark. Wow. Wonder what they'll do now. They should probably just change the team name seeing how much pressure is on them from all sides. Hell, they don't even play in Washington. Why not call them the "Maryland Mauraders™"?


I saw someone suggest the "Washington Department of Football Services," which I think is the best and most terrifying professional sports name possible.

Go Bureaucrats!

Yeah nice fuckin pic. I'd say "not that one, lets take another".
Maybe he did, and that's really the best pic they could get of him. What I'm trying to say is the dude looks weird, and has crazy eyes, kinda like Michele Bachmann.

I'm looking into getting a new card now, but haven't decided what to get yet. Leaning towards an Asus R9 280X, but not sure yet. I've had pretty good luck with AMD drivers, and haven't dealt with any nVidia stuff for a while, so maybe it's just the devil I know.

Either way, I don't think this game is gonna be enough to make me lean one way or the other.

BioWare knows they screwed up with DA2 and they have made it a mission to correct those errors with DA3. This game looks like a mixture of the storytelling we expect from Bioware, along with more open world features reminiscent of Elder Scrolls (yes I know it's not completely open world, but it's a lot more open world than DA1 or DA2). I for one am very excited for this game.
Has Bioware ever said they screwed up with DA2? I don't remember them doing anything other than defending it. Maybe that changed after I stopped paying attention.

No, they never said that. They've basically just implied that "we know people like some of these features, so we'll bring them back." They still firmly defend all their decisions with DA2.
That's what I figured. This will be very much a wait-and-see game for me. Even if it turns out to be good, I'll probably wait for a sale, just due to it not being conveniently on Steam. Hope they at least have different lead designers for this one.

I still haven't played any f2p games. There's just something unsettling about knowing I have an arguably incomplete title. I get people make these complaints about DLC, but with the possible exception of Fallout 3, there's never been a piece of DLC that's made a game feel more complete to me - it's just felt like more content bolted on (sometimes for better, sometimes for worse.)

With f2p, there's always something new to buy. There is no "complete," there's just more to buy. It just feels very awkward and uncomfortable to me.

Exactly. You should see what has become of MechWarrior franchise, its pathetic. ("mwo" that is)
Path of Exile is one of the few F2P games that does it right. You can only buy cosmetic effects and stash space. No P2W at all.

Honestly, I don't know why companies like ea and Activision aren't hunting down the companies ...and specifically the PEOPLE being paid to provide hacks. They should have legal grounds to do so, as it subverts the original design of their software. Maybe that's where it'll eventually end up, but for now, banning the cheaters solves nothing. It's like scolding a drug addict and believing that'll stop the illegal drug trade.

The funny thing is that the community does a pretty good job of addressing things itself when it has the tools but the companies keep taking away more and more control. Activision/etc can't really sue the companies providing the hacks, many are in foreign countries and new ones will spring up to replace old ones quickly.

Can't prosecute or sue them, but I bet a few drone strikes would put a significant dent in the problem

The first one was not F2P and it was not bad. I picked it up on sale and it was a decent Diablo like romp, but kinda meh as Cutter said.

I had fun with it. It's a pretty good ARPG. Looking forward to seeing what they do with the second one.

The giant skill tree is both a strength and weakness of the game.

Once you look at it carefully you realize there's some filler in there that could just be excised and the game would be even more fun.
Filler? I'm guessing you mean the basic stat nodes and such. I don't think those are just filler. It's part of the design that makes this sort of skill tree workable. It would be a mess if every node was a keystone or notable skill.

I have an XB1, but I'll be getting this for PC. I played the beta on both, and I guess I'm just too old cause I cannot play MP FPS games with the gamepad. At least, not without sucking super hard.
Nobody can, which is why you have auto-aim in console shooters and you don't see games where PC players can play against console players. That was tried, and the console players got their asses kicked.

Cool, i'm looking forward to this once its gone gold, until then i'm eagerly awaiting next week and the PoE mini expansion (those vaal skill gems! wow!) and new 4month leagues. As for d3....meh

Basically this. PoE has been entertaining for me lately. Got my first char to lvl 80+ and was able to run mid-level endgame maps. New stuff looks cool. Should be a lot more info coming out tomorrow too.

I've found that joining a guild is a good thing too. I joined up with people from Ars Technica and Inc Gamers. Nice having people to help out, share items and party with.

I don't understand the argument here. Cutter's post WAS trollish and needlessly hostile. I get that some people don't like the fact that others may be recording them, but as it was pointed out, there are already cameras everywhere, so that horse has long since left the barn. Rooting for glass wearers to get beaten and robbed is pretty fucked up either way.
