And they're still working on another full-size content expansion (which might bring a Necromancer class, who knows?). I have no problem with them continuing the frankly excellent and FREE content updates for as long as they're willing to.


are they though? i don't think there's ever been more than rumors about a second expansion

Donald Trump circa 1998

I see this one is making the rounds. How perfect - nevermind true - is that?

Sorry Cutter, but Snopes says this one is bogus...

Even if he didn't say it, the sentiment is true. If I was an immoral man I could have easily become a rich and famous right-wing extremist talk show host. The more extreme, virulent, and asinine the claim, the more they love it.

"even if he didn't say it, i don't care because i'm trying to make a point." that's really no different than the behavior you're denigrating, mister moral authority. i know their kind will think "lie-beral" no matter what but no need to actually stoop to their level.

And while I never finished Mafia (race car part pre-patch) Mafia II was one of the few games that I fucking loved/hated the ending because the deal was for Vito, not for Joe (and I really wanted to save Joe).

mafia 2 originally had a bit more meat on its bones, including multiple endings related to how you conducted yourself in the game. unfortunately most of them were quite limp and as time became a great factor, it was just turned into a linear game and the vito ending was chosen as "the best one".

what a weird release. the original never even made it off n64 to PC, and was widely mocked for the wall of fog.

i'm trying to think of any time, ever, that a "fan community" hasn't been pissed about something they're used to changing.

or really just any human, anywhere. at any time.

The storyline I was most surprised by was the Aldmeri Dominion. I avoided it until I had to play it, since don't play villains in games. I sure didn't want to play an Aldmeri jerk! Backstab . It turned out to be a struggle I could get behind, without giving away spoilers. In fact, I'm still memorized by her behind. Mwahaha
my last friend playing it says the same thing. when i'm done with fallout 4 i might fire up an AD character and give it a whirl.

i was just disappointed by what a totally conventional MMO it was. no new ground trod. a lot of people i know got into ESO because they love elder scrolls and weren't expecting the kind of silly MMO stuff that is everywhere in it, including one of the friends in my initial group. stuff like "Save 5 Priests of Stendarr", go untie 5 of them, and then you can't interact with any of the others still trapped in the bandit camp was confusing to her, though it's an obvious MMO mechanic to us.

Betting at a fight? I am shocked. SHOCKED!

i guess that means you didn't see it? aldo hasn't been defeated in ten years, and the manner of his downfall was, shall we say, anticlimatic.

mr tact: hahaha you got me. i realized this was the wrong date to post this too but you responded to me before i could edit it

What's next? A license just to be able to LOOK at something?

We already have that:

If you own a TV you must buy a license to watch it costing 145 per year.

wow. i can't believe that. and here i break america's balls for it's pro-corporate money worshipping.

I love the game. Running 6 toons. (I don't play MMOs, I play this cause of the lore.)
Same here, but only 4 toons for me. I'm really playing because of the lore as well, getting to see all the regions and world it pretty damn cool. Lighter

Also, I'm betting it's more like 38 gig download for the 45 gig install, since there is compression. They did make a mistake by not making it for 5 to 7 days.

i'm generally disinterested by mmos, and love the elder scrolls. i just bought an amulet of akatosh from the beth store (don't judge me) but that was another of my qualms in ESO in addition to how outright boring it is: it just has some bad, bad lore. it shouldn't surprise me that there would be contradictory or stupid material considering how many writers must be working on it but god damn is it stupid sometimes. and the quest design.. eruughh. in the daggerfall covenant at least it's just an endless chain of "go here, kill 20 things, figure out which daedric prince is causing trouble this time!

@ CJ

It's a pre-pre-alpha. You shouldn't expect it to handle a 1% setup like yours (3x mons, SLI)

They have raised an average of $100 per contributor, they have extremely high system requirements... and you think his setup is in the top 1%?! Surely the average contributor would have a high-end setup.

i don't think he means the system in a financial sense, since that seems to be how you took it - even though that is also true. it's a 1% system in the sense that it is unconventional. i actually stopped reading his text wall when he listed his 3 monitors and 2 graphics cards because real games from big budget studios can have problems with that kind of shit, let alone an alpha release from a company that is, at best, dysfunctional.

We should all thank Derek Smart for providing the motivational force behind getting Cloud Imperium Games to get off their lazy asses and release this update to the CryEngine tech demo known as Star Citizen.

you know, i never thought about it that way.. in light of everything, that actually seems true. the accelerating news reports and updates, etc.

meanwhile i'll continue to idly hope squadron 42 (that's the name of their campaign, right?) somehow gets released. don't really care much about the rest of that shitshow.

after playing skyrim earlier this year for the first time, i wanted to jump in and love this game. started a daggerfall covenant character with some friends, but the game bores me to tears. i knew it was time to hang it up when i was literally nodding off to sleep at like 3 in the afternoon on a day off while playing it.

the quest design is so boring, the writing is so fucking bad, and just more of the same puerile mmo combat. all my friends ended up dropping off but one, who says the aldmeri dominion is more interesting and this and that but i just couldn't do it. felt like going to work.
