Too bad. It's pretty fun. I learned more about the lore and the races from ESO than I have from any other ES game.

The studios finally ran into some games media the can't pay off? Sour grapes.

Brad said it himself though - the worst trolls are people from inside the industry. He failed to put 2 and 2 together after that. Make the industry less shite and people inside won't have anything to troll about. Release games that don't rip people off with their unfinished-ness. Stop treating women in games, which are at least half the paying audience, like stripper poles.

That's a start. It's not hard to figure out. If things were better the trolls would be obvious and not have so very much ammo.

Ok. I wasn't really expecting it until October or November.

Not a big deal.

Does it have fun combat now or is it still the simulated "movie" version of GalCiv 2?

I played Pools of Darkness and it was pretty merciless. Beholders would wipe an entire party - like they ought to be able to.

I played straight through one of the Half Life DLC all night one time and heard those sonic hounds in the wee hours of the morning even though I had quit playing.

I might finally install the beta. It sounds like it is pretty close to the final.

Yeah, people get that, but talking about safety directly after an assault has happened is crass and demonstrates a lack of decency.

People have been calling for anti-harassment policies and strict anti-creeper rules at cons like this for a while and maybe this will be the very unfortunate incident that gets that kind of trash behavior put down.

I don't care if a woman is wearing a G-String with pasties cosplaying Striperella. That's not an invitation FOR ANYTHING.

I've been to SDCC several times both as pro and visitor and it has been a pleasant (though exhausting) trip each time. This report soils it and I hope they look at what went wrong and make sure it doesn't happen again.

I liked the Mad Max trailer. I heard they did a lot of physical stunts instead of trying to do everything with CG.

Maybe some governmental body will figure out that it's dumb to tie everything to a "secret number" (SSN) that people are supposed to keep secure for the entirety of their lives even though every other company manages to give it away at the drop of a hat.

I'm starting to think that WOW logins are more secure than most information transactions.

Sooo... Basically everybody's data is stolen unless you use all cash and only do in-person transactions.

Artists get paid up front all the time because they get ripped off all the time.

For 35k he could have hired a good artist for an entire year though.

If you have a huge Kickstarter the first smart move is to hire an industry pro to do hiring and control the budget..

I like it. I play with friends. I have 5 level 30 characters.

I've learned more about the TES races playing ESO than I ever did playing the regular games.

They did a pretty good job with lore if you read all the books and stuff.

There are some things that could be done better though.

I'd still be kind of surprised to see it go F2P anytime soon.

Glass still looks like a gadget without much of an audience or purpose.

Besides that it's ugly and makes everyone think you're a creeper.

What hurts grammar (math, science, etc.) skills more than anything is that schools don't show people why the skills they teach are useful later and, more importantly, how they can make money with them.
