I don't see $50 + $15 a month working anymore for an MMO unless your WoW.

News Comments > Sony to Acquire Gaikai

The bandwidth just isn't there yet for any type of game that requires twitch/split second timing. For casual games this is great, or even turn-based but anything else and it is not worth it...yet. The only other gripe I havew with Onlive is that the graphics take a big hit. That is necessary to even attempt to overcome the first issue but it's just not worth it. For the console crowd (which I am apart of) the graphics hit isn't as noticeable. But, for the PC crowd (which I am apart of) the downgrade is significant and noticeable. For demo's the tech rocks, though. I think this type of service is still at least 5 years away from being optimized to anything beyond casual/turn-based.

Instead of Sony/MS going after this tech I would really like them to put out a console where I can D/L all the games instead of having to buy hard copies, plus make whatever machine I am doing that on upgradeable...so...I want them to make the 720/ps4 basically a pc.

Yeah, I figured this would happen. Frankly, it seems the only MMO that can last with a subscription model is WoW, and no other MMO really has the ability to copy that no matter how hard they try.

Now if only they could realize this with the Warhammer MMO and just make it completely free to play...

Rift is going stronger than ever. There is a way to compete...just do it better than WoW.

They put way too much emphasis on the AH, and now the problems associated with such a system are starting to effect the game.

You would think with a good working AH system in one of their other games they would have gotten this one right. In WoW most of the best gear is obtained through running the end game content. The AH is good for getting geared just enough to run the end game content, but it isn't anywhere near necessary.

Also I have to say really not enjoying the gameplay in the harder difficulties. As a ranged having to kite most of the rare/elite mobs isn't a challenge its boring. I was hoping with the flexibility of the skill system you could change up your skills to deal with different kinds of elite/rares, but nope, kite kite kite

As opposed to standing there and hitting your abilities? How is that any less boring (for you)? I'm in Act 3 Hell as a Wizard and having no problems save an initial death against multi blue/yellow fights. Kiting and getting the timing down is quite fun (still) for me. I guess Inferno will change all of that, though. But for now, Hell is fun, just go all-dps

You can end up paying far more under the laughable "free to play" model. Why do you think they are all moving in this direction.

^^

Nothing is free. These games should be called POT. Pay Over Time.

Crytek is going the Pay Over Time route.

Continuation of Bush policy. Same as renditions, targeted killings, etc. At least the loser in the WH didn't screw that up.

Lost me at 'third person shooter'. I hate those. A shooter should be first person in my opinion. Third person is for RPGs and console games, not shooters.

I feel the exact same way. I always stop reading when I see "third person shooter". Other genres are fine that way, but not a shooter.

I never really understood this. The controls, aiming, shooting are exactly the same as a FPS but you get to see your character and any any cool armor/weapons/effects ect. Do you not like part of your screen being blocked? Do you like the smaller FOV? Or, just miss the sort of immersion aspect of full FPS.

Passing on the Vita because I'm not a ten-year-old boy anymore who needs portable video games to keep himself occupied while his parents drag him to shopping malls and family reunions.

Huh? LOL! you moved on from being a 10 year old being dragged around by your parents to a 20-something hibernating in your parents basement playing WoW.

BOT. Vita is a fantastic device. The controls alone make it so I can't ever play another tablet or phone game. The problem is THERE ARE NO NEW GAMES.

News Comments > RAGE PC Texture Fix Coming
4. Re: RAGE PC Texture Fix Coming Oct 15, 2011, 15:01 ledhead1969
 
Game is fun, and I got a new system specifically for this (and BF3/Skyrim) but the blurry textures is a real head-scratcher. The game looks beautiful, and has the best draw distance and clarity of any game I've ever played (I am a big fan of that as it makes everything much more believable)...but up close the textures are terrible, even with the new option checked. I guess it will be patched as above but how did this stuff not get out during testing or the beta or whatever. Maybe it was all known and no one cared enough to make a big deal about it.
