So..I'm curious. I'm not a big MMO player, I have a pretty shitty Net connection, but I've had an itch to get into an MMO. I'm not really interested in WoW, I'm not a fantasy-type. AO looks pretty good. I've been thinking about Runescape too. I've tried Archeage and Guild Wars 2 and they're a little overwhelming. I'm just looking for an RPG with trade and player housing, mainly. Maybe some mining if it's available. Any suggestions?

=-Rigs-=

This will get insane hate, but have you thought about trying SWTOR? It is a casual, story-driven experience that isn't fantasy. It has player housing and decent trade economy /trade skills.

Each class has a pretty epic storyline quest, the world reacts to your status as the intergalactic badass (unlike games like WoW, where you are tasked with getting fish for a woodland hobo while you sit there holding the hammer of the gods and armor from the depths of icecrown), and the last two expansion storylines are fantastic.

It is really a better game than folks give it credit for. The end-game MMO aspect (raiding, mostly) is weaker than WoW, but the leveling experience is far superior.

I have all the updates for Windows 10 and still had the stuttering controller problem.

Ah, that blows. The support forums made it sound like it was only affecting folks without the update. That's clearly not the case

Typical Ubisoft, make the DRM so onerous that many people can't even launch the game. Seems that you can't even use your wireless controllers? Just pathetic.

If you haven't been keeping your PC up to date, there are potential issues with wireless controllers. Have the anniversary update and an xbox one elite controller, not experiencing the problem myself.

That said, this game is damned fun. Surprisingly fun, actually. Modern bushido blade, and the single player campaign was refreshingly good. I expected it to be an afterthought, but after beating it last night I am impressed.

Killing your first player in the team deathmatch 1v1v1v1 is insanely satisfying. Off with ye head!

Anyone remember THIS MTG game from the '90s?

That was 20 years ago. 20 years of sitting on their asses and never taking a real stab at what could have been with digitizing this game. Never a second thought given to a true MTG online experience. And no, half-assed poorly executed attempts don't count. The best MTG games were the Duels of the Planeswalkers series, except you could only fuck with pre-made decks with a fraction of the total cards in the universe. Not to mention they were more focused on a "call of duty" strategy where they can re-sell the same product every year, instead of building THE definitive online experience with all the collecting and dueling in one place like Hearthstone.

20 fucking years.

I'm honestly amazed that it took Blizzard so long to beat them at their own game, or that no one else did earlier. Mojang's "Scrolls" was a better game IMO than either Hearthstone or MTG, but Microsoft killed that. Paid +$2 Billion for 2 games, decided to focus on one, and just ignore the other. "New game from the creator of Minecraft!" - advertisement no one ever produced.

Ironically enough, everyone within the company knew that MTGO wasn't what it should be and that it needs a complete rework to be able to live up to the potential. When I left Wizards last year, the teams working on it were down to content producers and a few rules engine folks to keep up with maintenance.

I worked in IT as a senior network engineer. The datacenters and technology that power the WotC infrastructure stand up to anyone else in the industry. We took the blame for many MTGO outages, but the reality is that the application was designed to be monolithic and not fault tolerant in the slightest. There are MANY talented folks at WotC, but the leadership was not what it needed to be and I think that the company suffered from a top down lack of understanding on digital gaming in general.

The under-the-curtains architecture of MTGO was incredibly fragile. Anyone who has played the game can attest to how often it's down and how many serious championships (which, despite twitter and other social media claims, were all hands on deck for the IT Operations folks) were impacted by its instability. We did our very best to solve that through infrastructure, but in the end -- a massive application with a significant amount of single points of failure can only be assisted by resilient infrastructure so much.

I am credited on the Duels of the Planeswalker games. While I'm no longer in the gaming industry, I do hold that as a pride point. However, the majority of actual development work was outsourced to Stainless Games. WotC managed the infrastructure (which is where I came in) and provided design guidance and project management, and obviously the art assets... but Stainless maintains the code base.

I am heartbroken to hear of my colleagues who were impacted by this. The companies direction over the past few years (including the mind boggling comments on Hearthstone by one of the executives mentioned by name in this announcement), and its focus on cloud technologies without a real and honest view on how to consume them are troubling. I loved my time at Wizards, and I am eternally grateful for the experiences shared there, but I cannot say that I am surprised.

What this doesn't tell you is that this re-imaging included laying off 30+ folks, many in IT and infrastructure, while keeping the game designers (whose poor judgement resulted in MTGO) and decision makers in place. Including leadership, who when asked during an internal town hall meeting what WotC was going to do in response Hearthstone, responded: "they aren't competing with us and we don't feel that we need to do anything"

Slammed? You think "it's it's" is actually correct?

Whether or not it's correct is irrelevant -- you can understand the spirit/meaning of it, and that's what matters. We're not writing reports or publishing studies here, forums follow conversational english and the meaning is clear in context.

I mean you got to actually try to slip inside that mind and figure out what was going on in that little brain when it wrote "it's it's" and how the hell it didn't realize that something was horribly wrong.
WTF do you have to do to completely neglect your lingual hygiene like that? You got to be a lingual hobo... boozed, drugged, shitfaced to the point of total not-giving-a-fuckery.

I'll second that the SP campaign of TF2 was incredible, rival's DOOM. It's it's own thing, not doom-esque, but still amazing.

Dude, first a serious question: Did you, like ever in your whole fucking life, get to see a school from the inside?

Also, Doom's SP campaign that has a "story" that can be written down on the fraction of a wet paper napkin was "incredible"? OK. I've become used to extremely low standards around these parts of the net but seriously, d00d...

lol

I can see one spelling mistake, "rival's" should be "rivals". Is that what you're harping on about?

"It's it's" is perfectly comprehensible, It is, it's own thing. too complicated for your child-like mind?

You gotta be fucking shittin' me bro!
"It's it's" is like the dumbest motherfucking mistake one could possibly make since it is so obviously wrong that "it's" and "it's" can not be in the same sentence like that. The correct one is "It's its... blahblah", of course. Because "it's" = it is and its = possessive reflexive pronoun. Jesus H Christ, dude. English ain't even my first language and even I nubcake know this shit. Goddammit!

So, did you ever go to school? Yes or no?

Also, of course, I didn't play Doom 'cept the demo cuz I'm not retarded. The single player sucked ass. It's just a dumbass shoot'em up. It would do every other game a disservice to call that shit a "campaign". It's a loose arrangement of shooting gallery levels is what it is. And you know I'm right and always will be, forever after,
amen, brother!

You know what's dumber than not understanding "It's it's" in context? Commenting on how shitty a game is after admitting that you never played it.

I think others with a lot more time involved with this man would say this is far from his first mistake to them.

Explain? I didn't say it was his first mistake, btw. He's refunding people, which is not common in scenarios like this and deserves praise. You think Star Citizen will go out and refund everyone?

Also, he went after aimbotters in Planetside 2 with passion that I wish other shooters could match. And if playing his games for 15 years still doesn't entitle me to an opinion, I mean... okay.

Otherwise, not quite sure I follow.

You can have a debate without being an abrasive, toxic, nerd raging asshole. They're not mutually exclusive.

I am calling this out not because I care about Microsoft, but because Bluesnews is a fantastic site with a few rotten apples that drag the comment threads down. Hold yourselves to higher standard.

Unfortunately you picked the thread, topic, and comment where his style is appropriate. Calling him out on threads where it isn't will engender greater success.

You missed the entire point -- being a toxic abrasive asshole is never "appropriate" in a forum like this. The validity of his points are a separate issue from how he conducts himself. He could've made all those points with the same impact without being a toxic asshole.

edit - how about this:

I don't give a fuck what he thinks about Microsoft, the dude is a motherfucking retard who has choked down the free market red pill and filled himself with so much self righteous anger that he can't hold a civil fucking conversation. Everything he argues is irrelevant because he doesn't understand how to take a respectful tone with anyone who may have a different point of view. You know who else acts like this? Fucking terrorists.

CJ Parker is literally a terrorist.


Do you see the difference now? One is appropriate, one is not. I can't agree with you that there is ever a time being a toxic asshole on the internet over a trivial matter is constructive. It's just not man, and the point doesn't justify the delivery.

Again: I'm not touching Microshit's garbage store with a 10 lightyear pole. Not after what they pulled off with GFWL. I uninstalled the store immediately after upgrading, never to be seen again (OK who am I kidding... next major update they will reinstall it w/o my consent but it will fly off the disk again just as swiftly as it returns!).

While GFWL store closed down, that is you can't purchase new games from them, the service is still out there, supporting GFWL games. I have it installed on Windows 10, and it works perfectly fine, still serving out downloads for the game I added to the GFWL account, and keeping track of achievements and other things.

That is complete bullshit. I own(ed) Age of Empires III Complete on GFWL. Can I still install the GFWL client? Yes. Can I download AoE III Complete? Yes. Can I play AoE III Complete? Fuck no.
The game asks for a fucking key when I try to start it. I never got a fucking key because the game is/was tied to my GFWL account.
So what I had to do to be able to play my legally purchased game was google a AoE III key and that luckily worked but without Google I'd be fucked out of a game by Microshit's utter incompetence.

You know, I can even still see the original transaction in my MS account so MS has a record of my purchase. So why did I never get a key when they shut down their retard service?
The very least they should have done would've been to either... A. give everyone a free Steam key for AoE III Complete or... B. add the game to people's MS accounts and provide a key or account-bound version from there or... C. select any other method of their choosing to allow GFWL game owners access to their legally acquired games.

Microshit did none of that. They effectively stole my game from me. They are the only digital platform so far who have lost a game and they (unfortunately) do not even have the excuse of going out of business or anything. They just didn't give a fuck when they shut down GFWL.

That is why I am NEVER going to purchase a game from a Microshit storefront again. NEVER. They have broken rule no. 1 which is trust. Who is to say that their CEO or Phil Spencer doesn't consider the Win 10 store a "failure" next month and they shut it down in similar fashion to GFWL, not giving a fuck and screwing people out of their legal purchases? I ain't taking that risk again with these jokers. Fuck Microshit.

The only "parody" here is that you seem to honestly believe that those Win 10 apps are among the "best" apps for the related purposes. Are you for real? That is outright hilarious. Have you ever had your IQ checked? I'd be extremely curious if it's much above room temperature (in degrees Celsius). I'd bet it's a really close call...

Is Forza Horizon 3 going in a similar direction? If that is the case I'd need to upgrade to W10... which I really don't want to do.

On the other hand I did upgrade to Win XP back in the day so I could play X2.


The Horizon games are some of my favorites across all genres, and certainly best in class in racing/free roam!

I could never understand which part of the market Steam Machines were suppose to corner or even compete with.

Console market, of course. Thus the controller and the Link thingie.

I'm very glad they failed. The last thing the PC needs is yet another (besides Microsoft) mega corp trying to force people to abandon their PCs and to join the living room with all the other console peasants in it.

Calling it how it is, as someone who owns both the controller and steam link: they are great ideas that were not delivered to promise.

Steam Link is effectively unusable on wireless. Through a powerline ethernet adapter, it works good -- but then it has limited USB support, so you can't use things like wheels or flight sticks through it. A product that is so close to being relevant and good and it's just not thanks to the locked down USB support.

The steam controller offers nothing compelling over an Xbox One controller which is cheaper and more widely supported. Frankly, the XB1 controller is more comfortable and easier to get working than the steam controller. Just another half baked idea that was a good attempt but not enough to unseat the incumbent go-to option.

While I have disposable income these days, I still can't justify the high prices at times when I have other priorities to pay for such as I don't know... RENT, car payment, student loan, electric, phone, FOOD, etc. It makes it hard at times to include full priced games, but it's what I enjoy. Gaming. Does that mean I should be excluded because I can't afford to pay full price at times?

I wasn't aware we were all entitled to the luxury items that we want regardless of our ability to pay. I should try that tactic when I replace my car in a few years and see if I can leverage my used Corolla budget to get a new Porsche.


Were not talking about jacking a Porsche here. Paying 60 vs paying let's say 20 or 30 is a big difference when you see what you can buy at a lower income with that 30 or 40 your saving. Food, gas, a utility bill.

Some people at the higher bracket would never understand that because they never had to deal with it and feel nobody lives like that.

Video gaming is not a utility. It is not a right.

It is a hobby.

Trying to compare the cost of games to the cost of utilities is like saying you need games to survive -- you don't.

I have been at the low bracket, and I always understood that I could not buy all the games that hit the market and that I had to be a lot more discerning about what I did put my money towards. It sucks. But that isn't the game developer or even the publishers responsibility.
