" the game did not sell enough copies"

Just watched a few vids about this game and it's no wonder.

I must have played a different GW2 than everyone here so far.

I found the end-game content to be non-existent and/or boring. You could fight world bosses as a group, but it was essentially just a zerg fest, with no actual coordination or strategy required.

World PvP was the exact same. Just a giant glob of people relentlessly attacking wooden doors all day/night.

I did enjoy the questing while leveling as an Asura, but got bored quickly once max level was reached.

Yea... was going to say the same thing. lol.

(Though some of the newer world bosses did actually require some coordination - Great Jungle Worm for example)

I also despise the side effect of F2P game design: "Lets not actually put any cool stuff in the game and just keep putting everything in the gem store". And they even screwed that up introducing outfits, so you can't even mix and match cool looking gear with each other to make a unique outfit anymore with gem store stuff.

I'll agree with these comment as well. It seems the glowing reviews of most of the posters ignore many of the issues of the game as well as the misinformation about the F2P accounts not having restrictions.
The glowing fan boy reviews, which they more than entitled to make, ignore many if not all of the issues with the game. Anet won't even replace their official forum that they know are broken, let alone interact with customers there. Wintersday???? (like all their festivals) just recycled same old content year after year. They still haven't fixed the elixer problem in the latest episode.
The game can be good and fun but one shouldn't ignore the issues that the game and it's devs have.

CCleaner hides a Chrome install and changes your default browser now. It caught me by surprise. I reviewed the install options and the custom install options. It doesn't give you a choice not to install chrome.

I just checked mine going from 5.22 (7.86mb installer) to 5.23 (7.89mb installer) and didn't get anything else installed?!

I know a lot of programs are using chrome now to render an options window or something, but ccleaner is not one of them.

Sorry, but I disagree, and replicated it as well with another install. I guess I could record it to prove it to you, but CCleaner installed Chrome on my machine, simple as that.

Wonder what it means for future steam releases...


Irrelevant ---it's available from many sources including the Microsoft Store and retail store hard copies. They are all affected, not just the copies purchased through steam


I think it's pretty relevant - how do we know the steam version is going to get any support/patches? Are you saying the steam version with get zero support whatsoever?

Buy the retail version and it requires a steam activation. No big deal. They will support it. Take off the tin foil hat! LOL

Simply leaving a sinking ship that he put the hole in. The leaving to be with family is just a cover to get him to leave without causing any animosity or giving a true reason. He likely got a generous golden handshake with a nondisclosure clause.

13. Re: Ubisoft Fighting Hostile Takeover Feb 26, 2016, 13:19 Marvin T. Martian
 
The Candian gov't would stop this takeover by declaring it's not in the public and Canada interest. Since the gov't gives alot of assistance to Quebec to avoid separatist movement from gaining momentum they would stop it. Quebec would put additional pressure on the national gov't as well.Unless there was an iron clad guarantee that there would be no job loss, and maybe even more growth this just wouldn't fly.
Vivendi doesn't have any understanding of CDN politics and the gov't wish to keep Quebec happy.

Apparently all the kids that weren't so lucky simply didn't have enough prayer power going for them and The Jesus was like, "Meh."

Is that what they said, as a quote, or is that what you inferred?

Horrible to see children with cancer, but I think making a game of such a scenario is outright sick.


So, just to be clear, are you judging a parent based on how they deal with a horrible issue in their and their child's life?


I agree with both posters you quoted.

Sweet, loved that game. Updated to modern PC, and hopefully developed exclusively for the PC (then pass it over to the WB Batman team to port it to consoles 6 months after the PC release)

Now, get out there and Be The Batman!

When the game reaches 5 bucks, I will.

Yep!!!! They blew it and even if they gave it away to PC players, I would be hesitant. WB should just get out of making any PC game.
