Having said all that, I do wonder why MMO's give players a fully leveled up character as an option when they release an expansion?

There's actually one coming out that does exactly this. I don't know the details, or the name, unfortunately. Just saw it mentioned on one of the forums I frequent.

The reason is for complaints we are stating here. Feel lost and behind. Thinking old content is boring content or abandoned content. Here we'll put you right out in front again where there are players and new cooler stuff. Please play my game!

Yeah when this game started doing chapters, they took a very strong turn having a single player mmo (oxy-MORON) or one so easy when grouping because it was only balanced for one, it was ultra-boring.

It feels like every MMO, no matter what they say, boil down to the same formula, no matter what genre they're in.

And that is the one I don't like the most, everything has to be too generic to keep everyone in check, which in my opinion is a big ass fun sucker outer. Since there are people that will play every day for 8 hours per, they have to keep control of people like that, which makes avg players feel even more controlled and then they want to keep you forever in a day in that grind to who knows where it really is going... That is why I am bullish on player run server games (build/survival), you can mod to inject something different into them, you can control who plays and simply put don't have to feel nickle/dime'd. And no matter how much one wants to do something different from the start, it magically comes right back in to more of the same overall. Just something about them, they are bound and can't break free in a exciting fashion.

Jumped back in to this after a year or so of not looking at it. Had no fucking clue what I was doing or how it worked. The biggest problem I have returning to games like this, especially F2P MMOs, is all the shit in my bags. And since it's F2P, bag space is extremely limited while they give you a whole ton of shit to fill your bags. The easy solution is to delete/sell everything. Instead I just quit. These games really need a "hey, welcome back, let's do a tutorial".

And give me bigger bags, dammit.

+1. All the combining/collecting items and different currencies needed to buy things, I already have a job. I get why they do it for those that play everyday forever, but those that would rather be in/out/return, ass pain. One of the top flaws with the standard mmo formula. This one was fair in story, but I didn't care for the combat model, too simplistic, it was improved with getting a char from 1 to max., I agree.

Like the idea of the 70's sound track from the movie, but the songs are so cheese, much cooler 70's songs. One may say "that's the point", I counter with my point is choose the cooler songs. Oh well.

I already own NWN2 Platinum on Steam, but thanks.

I just picked up Ghost of a Tale on GOG. It's a really rather charming and endearing game. I quite recommend it. Particularly if you've ever read and enjoyed graphic novels like Mouse Guard.


Wait you just bought an EA Game? The hypocrisy!

And here we were just lambasting the UK for the Snoopers Law. GG America, always down for the one upmanship in stripping citizens of their rights.

Layton argued on the AEI blog that government regulations aren't necessary to protect net neutrality. "Regulation proponents argue that without such rules your Internet provider would speed up or slow down websites," she wrote. "There have never been rules against this, but Internet providers donít do it anyway. Simply put, the business opportunity to deliver an open Internet is far greater. Failing that, antitrust laws deter discriminatory behavior, already ensuring net neutrality."

This fucking bitch, man. This means one of two things. She either actually believes this in which case it's just another in the never ending examples of conservative cognitive dissonance, or she should be getting treated for third degree burns on her legs from her pants being on fire, she's such a liar liar.


Yeah I read that quote last night and belched. Yah mankind has shown if you don't have standards and regulations, they will continue to cut corners. We won't raise the bar as a whole without making marks to strive for. Even if you want to, there will be another in your sector that won't, they will find the cheapest way possible either forcing you to match their low level standards or forcing you out of business on standing by principal. It is hard to believe at least the general public doesn't understand this.

On my last big project I worked 18 hour days, 7 days a week during the last month to hit the release deadline.

Shit like this is exactly why I quit game development for another field. "Crunch" is bullshit, a cankerous symptom of bad project management and it's through the entire industry.

I'm with both of you, if you have game development skills, you have business skills that pay better on avg and have better QOL features AND the best part you still like games and can play them when you get home!

The single biggest issue I have going all streaming, is caps and paying more after going past them. The next is live content convenience for morning news etc, to me that works better vs streaming. Perhaps I could go back to antenna for that, but there are a few cable stations I really want live to.

So I am looking at a new streaming service, but also a cheap cable/sat package, sort of a smart hybrid plan, I can't be alone looking for the right mix here, right?

I'm thinking in my area Dish with their bottom 2 year plan, with 2-3 set top boxes, along with a streaming service, makes a nice package.

I could still see a cheaper cable/sat package, like pick 5-10 stations (w/local but not part of the 5-10) for like $20-$25 per mo., that would be ideal for me, couple that with a streaming service, bingo.

Hmmm, soon you'll have to take out a mortgage just for a phone...or a 52-month loan like on a car! Fucking ridiculous!

=-Rigs-=

No one is forcing anyone to make those vanity purchases. I paid $150'ish bucks for a work phone - a tough phone thast's waterproof and shatterproof - 6'ish years ago and I still use it today as it works just fine for what it's supposed to do.

Same with games or dlc for games. Choose wisely.

Folding@home still broken, OBS still broken, many are reporting performance drops in BF1, and myself, a $1,000 1080 owner, is wondering why I wasted my money.

I didn't upgrade, lost nothing since I'll I hear is the next driver sucks. Running NVIDIA Driver 1.0, bliss.

Admitting being wrong is often seen as a loss nowadays.. sadly.

Was it really ever in vogue? I don't recall a time where people overwhelmingly accepted being wrong in opinion, we've been stubborn forever.

Fake news about fake news. Fake news was not fake news when the fake Dan Rather or the fake Brian Williams were fired or the face CNN handed out debate questions to the fake Hillary.

This is why sane people abandon the democrats and become independent.

The other side isn't any different in this regards at all, I've always been independent fwiw. But I do feel there has been a definite uptick of a lot more fake news sites/articles than ever. If anyone has a Facebook account, you'd see that near daily. Prior to this I have had a hard time with really feeling concrete on news given to me, now with this, really how does anyone really think they know on so many subjects these days? They don't, but god damn if many aren't certain of it. It's all purposeful muddied waters. It's terrible really, but also reality.

But they're sticking with NMS and are trying to make it a better game. And yet, they're called out for it?! You just can't be happy with anything! It's was a botched launch. Fine. We get it. I paid $60 (which would have been better used fixing the transmission in my car) just like the rest of you.
=-Rigs-=

I didn't buy it, anyone who could have waited just a few days would have known to back off. I call them out to a level that I feel they have what seems like a dead product now, perhaps they don't, like I said, fine go do what you want Hello Games, makes no difference to me.

I never really get the "too little too late" comments that get thrown around whenever a dev tries to update a game that wasn't what it should have been at launch. If you paid $60 for the game, isn't developer support post launch a good thing?

Spot on.

Anonymous internet rage and ignorance.

It depends on the situation, this game was far from norm and has an unhappy/abandoned gaming base. They can go right ahead and pour time and money into it.

To NKD thank you. Leaving out voting and needing an ID, I like to make point that at face value so many things seem simple and we make a quick statement as we are so certain of ourselves. HOWEVER if you were in position to listen to all sides and make an informed decision that has some grace and consideration to it, it becomes a lot more complicated. Your first off the cuff thoughts you will realize were pretty damn quick and shallow on several topics. That is why a certain person now gets support from certain people, they all underestimate how difficult this all is, they can do better, they always think this, everything is black and white.
