I'm over here wondering what a new MMO could do to totally shake up the industry and captivate people like how we first felt.

I had hopes for EQ Next, but apparently that game is vaporware?

A huge Cyberpunk game, easily accessible like WoW, fun like Wildstar, leveling like GW2, and world events like Rift.

Or not follow the same shitty leveling system that every game does.... They're all clones.

Yep... CCP was doing World of Darkness MMORPG, which would have been more of a PvP-centric political game, but they couldn't get their shit together long enough to ship it. Since that was cancelled, there just aren't any MMOs worth mentioning in the works.

It's entirely Korean imports or shitty Kickstarter fodder that will never work because they've underestimated how expensive MMOs are to make.

SLI support and ability to easily disable mouse accel is a good sign. Also no artificial FPS cap.

HBM2 cards will be able to pack wacky amounts of RAM. I wonder if NVIDIA is gonna go all the way and put 32GB on its Titan replacement.

MKX hasn't had a community on the PC for a long time. I can see why they wouldn't want to bother. Sucks for the die-hards who were still hanging on though.
I have to say though. Is the reason there is no PC community their own doing because of shitty net code and bugged to hell launch?

Yeah pretty much. They botched it from the beginning.

Unfortunately they decided to let the AI cheat instead of putting any real work into it and this is what we get.

You know I really get tired of seeing this shit. There are a lot of really smart people out there working on AI for gaming applications, but there are a lot of hurdles.

You know how up until a few years ago, you needed a really powerful machine to reliably beat a skilled human at something as simple as chess? Now take chess, add 20 new pieces, remove the predefined movement grid, and make it realtime. Add another player or 3 or 4 while you're at it as well. Oh, and you have to actually run the game and render the shit at the same time, on a $1000 PC.

There's the problem with developing AI for RTS, and why RTS has always been primarily a player versus player affair. Similar problems arise for just about any AI in a realtime game. You can do a bit better with turn-based games since you can allow more time for computation and deal with things discretely rather than continuously. But you're still dealing with needing algorithms way more complicated than for chess.

Oh, and you can never reuse those algorithms because no two games are the same.

It's not a matter of laziness or misplaced focus, it's just a massive technical cockblock that will not be conquered with conventional computing.

Right, how many PC users happen to have Visual C installed?

Can't believe this bunch of yuppies can't be bothered to generate a windows executable download.

They probably don't want a bunch of dumbasses who have no business downloading early dev builds doing so and complaining that it isn't 100% functional yet.

Why the bait? Or do you deny something that Forbes publishes yearly? I don't fall for conspiracy theories. Here is the Forbes 500 list, so you can have a look at it yourself.

Forbes 500

If you don't believe that these people are ultimately the ones influncing politics worldwide (mostly through US policy, where campaign and lobby dollars is the name of the game) I've got a bridge to sell you, dirt cheap.

It just seemed to be where you were going with it. But yes, money is the universal fuel. You can't do anything without money and you can do the most when you have the most money. I'm not really sure why you're even trying to argue with me to be honest, as you've said nothing I disagree with. I just pointed out that Putin's buddies over in Russia own a wacky variety of shit. Diversity like crazy.

Will keep an eye on this. As someone already mentioned, former Mozilla CTO/CEO is running this project apparently. Firefox served me well back in the day, so the guy must have at least some clue what he's doing.

It's actually really funny how many things Putin's oligarch cronies own.

Did you know that Daybreak games, formerly SOE, got purchased by a company that is a subsidary of a Russian conglomerate run by one of Putin's buddies?

Christ harlock, you're such a douchebag

I see it's the cool thing to do to rag on this chick, but she does have a point in that video games over-sexualizing women. Some of the ways games cater to teenager or early twenties guys is truly pathetic.

For instance, that character in MGS. Dunno her name, never played the series

Who cares? If game developers like making that shit, more power to 'em. Especially if people are buying the games. As long as marketing guys aren't coming in and forcing them to add it, it's cool with me.

What I'm not cool is pretentious smug douchebaggery where guys pretend they are above being titillated, or people trying to shame game developers for any sexualized content.

Oculus founder Palmer Luckey will be sued for breach of contract.

The plot thickens. It will be interesting to see what comes of this.

Of course, FB came into this well after the fact, so not sure why they are a defendant?

Never heard of this company so Facebook lawyers will probably keep them tied up in court forever and then some settlement will be reached.

That Hero's Song thing seems interesting. 2D ARPG aimed for more hardcore players, and hey whats this? You can actually host your own servers. What a novel concept.

It's also interesting to see Smedley doing something that doesn't promise the world. This looks like a project that could actually conceivably be made.

Another anime titty simulator with a shitty localization and the absolutely stellar (lol) support of NCSoft. It's a rough time to be an MMO fan. There's just nothing even remotely good on the horizon. It's all a bunch of tiny studio titles that won't happen and Asian imports that are no good.

Plenty of titles with kinda-MMO-ish online modes, but nothing like a true feature rich persistant world.
