I wonder if the people complaining play the game or are they just looking for something to complain about?

Indeed, and they seem to really put some effort into the ports as well... well, more or less effort, I am pretty sure we gonna need another "fixes something dll mod" for this game.

Hoping this FF offers mod support. It is the lifeblood of any game.

Read the whole thread. He lost his old user name.

There's no quote or link to their old post, so I am forced to ask still, how he or she "told us so?"

Nice. I didn't buy this for PS4 because I assumed this was coming eventually.

Me too! Even more so since I don't own a PS4.

Yes! I've wanted to play this ever since Kingsglaive.

I think this also demonstrates the profitability of the PC platform lead by Steam. I can't remember a time where Square-Enix released a FF game so quickly on PC.

As someone who interviews and hires people for my company, I can tell you that these millennials work very cheaply.

I'm betting that revolving door of cheap, wide-eyed, day-dreaming millennial fresh meat is too tantalizing for BioWare to abandon.

The culture there is dead anyway, since the people who were around during the days when "CRPG" meant something are long gone.

When EA bought BW I was on the beginning of the end bandwagon and took a LOT of heat for that view. Everyone was like 'oh they still have the core dev there it will be fine'. I said within 6 months you will start seeing the exit of those core devs, mgt and it will just be a circling the drain affair as time goes on until it's just a shell of BW in name only. I was laughed at on their forums and here.

I am not above saying, I told you so.

Similar to the first game, these expansions are optional and self-contained for the most part. You can buy one or the other or both at a combined discount if you want. This FAQ explains the differences pretty well, what you get and don't get by owning this new one and not the previous: https://help.guildwars2.com/hc/en-us/articles/115010688287-Guild-Wars-2-Path-of-Fire-FAQ

They are, but there are certain things that are only available in HOT.

- Masteries introduced in HOT, like Gliding Mastery
- The 9 elite specializations introduced in HOT
- Revenant class is a standard class in POF but the Herald elite spec is not
- Guild Halls and Scribe crafting discipline

However, none of these HOT exclusives are required to play and complete POF. They only provide utilities for convenience. From experience, the gliding mastery alone is worth the price.

Looking forward to wielding an axe for the first time on my Guardian. I bought up a bunch of cool axe skins from the Trading Post before the prices jump due to demand. I'm still on the fence about the Chaos Axe. It sells for around 550 gold.

The game takes seasons as way to tally world scores and reset some things, iirc, not really for DLC/expansions like episodic games. So seasons being 3 months and this being the start of the third makes sense.

Gotcha. That makes sense. I think the use of "season" is wrong though as the word typically means a year. I think Round, Final, or Arc would be better for quarterly events. Any implies matches with a quicker finale; of course, I'm not a marketing person so what do I know.

And you don't understand there is no fucking sentimental value attached to the Parliament buildings. I would bet you any amount of money that if you ran polls all over London and/or England tomorrow it would likely be close to 100% that people would say scrap it and build something better and much more cost effective.

I've not talked about Parliament. I'm specifically talking about the northern clock tower called Big Ben. When in my entire conversation did I ever mention Parliament?

However, since you seem to be so keen on bringing up "Parliament." I should remind you that parliament isn't the name of the building. Parliament is the name of the supreme legislative body in the United Kingdom. Body members meet in the House of Lords and the House of Commons in separate large chambers within the Palace of Westminster (the actual name of the building). The entire palace is declared Grade I ("buildings of exceptional interest") by England and Wales since 1970 and part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987. UNESCO sites tend to remain protected structures for conservation and posterity. So clearly the building absolutely has sentimental value within London, Britain, the UK, and the world.

There is no shortage of old and ancient buildings throughout Europe. While Londoners may be sentimental about Big Ben I seriously doubt any of them would object to seeing Parliament demolished and replaced with something far better. If it saves taxpayers money in the long run they'll always be for it. And let's not forget those buildings are paid for by the majority of people in a nation that never see them or use them, so why waste their money needlessly when they need it a great deal more in their own communities. What private companies do with their own money is their business, what governments do with our money is our business.


You're still not understanding the point of sentimental value. The very definition is "the value of something to someone because of personal or emotional associations rather than material worth." In other words, ancient buildings and landmarks may be financially inefficient to maintain by today's standards, but in the minds of many, they hold iconic and cultural values that are worth preserving regardless of high costs.

Are you sure abut that, GW grew in the shadow of WoW and it also began because of WoW, it was during a time of MMOs sprouting like mushrooms after good rain, ArenaNet just did it different. And it is why I referred to it as a clone that broke the subscription chains

Having played WOW (up to WOD) and GW (all the expansions, including HOT) I can tell you for the fact that I am sure about it.

All MMOs remain clones of pen and paper gaming, which are themselves inspired by Tolkien's Lord of the Rings and other fantasy of the time. So who created it first remains a moot point.

Anet's only connection to Blizzard is Mike O'Brien, Patrick Wyatt, and Jeff Strainby were former Blizzard employees. However, that's where the similarities end.

Guild Wars never followed WOW's model. Anet was the first to release a subscription-free Buy to Play product before that was even a thing. In the beginning, the game focused on multiplayer arenas with objectives similar with today's MOBAs. The story campaign is unique to the GW franchise. It borrowed nothing from WOW. For example, there are no orcs, trolls, or goblins in GW lore. Instead, you have the Mursaat, Asura, and Tengu races, each with rich backstories. Dragons represent forces of nature whose scope of existence within the lore have recently changed. The scope change is unique to the Guild Wars franchise.

That's the problem with those old buildings. It costs far more to repair and maintain them then it would be to scrap them and build something new and efficient. It's just a huge waste of money for a public service building.

Have you never heard of sentimental value? It's not an "old building." For Londoners and England in general, Big Ben (the building and the clock) remains a part of the culture and heritage for over 150 years. I guarantee you if you asked any Londoner what you just said, they would be appalled at such a thought.
