Did I play the same AO as you guys? I was there at launch for about the first three months and it was nothing but a pain in the ass. The first month you'd get stuck in terrain and buildings and have to petition for a GM to come and teleport you out. The second two months I was running instances while reading a book because it was so simplistic. And as a Fixer I was supposed to be shit hot on the Grid....but that really didn't function properly until like level 20...and only minimal functionality (from what they promised) then. Oh, and how fun was loot? I used the EXACT same submachine gun from level 3 until I stopped playing....I had to sell just about all my loot except that exact model, but a level higher. Wooo, the DIVERSITY!!!

Nope.

True, but I think you're missing the point. What makes Twitch huge is the social networking...not the underlying technology. They're as successful as they are but up until a few months ago their app for iOS and Android was horrific. Anyone can stream, but no one is going to watch unless there is a conglomerate site.

Google/Youtube could be huge...but the visceral reaction right now is not to the site, its tech, or its userbase.... It is to the way they handle DRM. Way too many stories about streams going offline for a short while because it was reported or the auto-DRM thought it picked up some music owned by ZaibatsuCorp. That will not fly with streamers or viewers and will make YouTube's service a non-starter.

Some of you guys really need to do your home work before jumping to conclusions.
I didn't say anything about your friend....so consider your personal bias in the matter. Your buddy is the only possible diamond in the rough...and only for a game he created 18 years ago. Personal feeling aside, the truth is that neither company has a notable track record on anything resembling MoO.

I seriously doubt that. You seem to forget get that they bought out Gas Powered Games. And I happen to know they are working on this game too.
I didn't know that...but even that doesn't give me a lot of hope. Age of Empires Online anyone?

I was never impressed with S.Commander....though I've purchased TA and core contingency multiple times over the years just because of it's massive scale.

Now that we're a few patches in, I'm much happier with the game and don't regret the purchase any longer. There are still a few annoying bugs that need addressing....but nothing that is ruining the overall experience. I only wish they would have done a little more QA before release....and then it would have deserved the stellar day one reviews.

No optimism here. Wargaming's dev model is incompatible with anything remotely akin to MoO. They will dumb it down, make it f2p, and sell golden antarian ammo for cash.

You know.....I've been looking forward to playing this game for weeks. I finally get time. Update to 1.03... And all I find is a steaming pile of dogshit. This is a horrible port. I can't rebind movement keys. I have to hack up the input.settings file to get the bindings I want....and the next time I run the shit game it screws up keys that I DIDN'T rebind. 30 minutes in and I still don't have the control scheme to a functional place. I should have gone the damn console monkey route and just used my 360 controller.

Are you saying they should do fuck all against cheaters and instead add a new hat? Can't say I agree with that.
...No. And you're well aware I wasn't saying that. I'd rather they kick/ban cheaters and be very vocal about the fact. I'd rather they fix major exploits, but continue using as much dev time as possible to improve the game a as a whole. H1Z1 needs a LOT of polish.

And thats the problem. Instead of fixing bugs, companies just ban someone. Its cheap, it makes you feel good and it does not change a thing.
You know...if a dev group has 5000 man hours to put into a game this month, I'd rather that they use it toward improving the player experience or fixing real bugs. Why would you want them to waste the time obfuscating traffic or code to get a temporary reprieve against cheaters?

News Comments > Bethesda on Paid Skyrim Mods
25. Re: Bethesda on Paid Skyrim Mods Apr 27, 2015, 20:19 Primalchrome
 
Valve deserves a cut. Bethesda deserves a significant cut. The modders are building off of an EXISTING FRAMEWORK. And guess what, Bethesda getting cash incents them to provide better modding tools...more hooks... Maybe something like this is what Firaxis needs in order to make a decent Civ VI SDK.

So now, thanks to all the howling and whining....modders get jack shit. Good job guys, way to champion the little guy. But we all know it wasn't about that...it was about entitlement, now wasn't it?

I really loved the Kings Quest series when I was a kid/teen, but lost a lot of respect for Roberta Williams and Sierra later. When Sierra folded, she gave an interview and essentially said that the average intelligence of gamers had dropped significantly and they couldn't appreciate her work any longer. ...and thats why the XXX Quest games weren't selling well any more.

News Comments > Steam Launches Paid Mod Support
18. Re: Steam Launches Paid Mod Support Apr 23, 2015, 14:49 Primalchrome
 
I think most good mod creators are going to find their sweet spot with "Pay What You Want". There are a handful of mods for Skyrim in particular that I would have donated money had it been as simple as clicking a button. That said, I'm not paying a mandatory $5 to try your texture improvements or inventory manager unless I *know* it works well and won't be broken in the next patch.

This looks to be a good thing but my only two concerns are :
- Valve should only take a TINY processing percentage. 5% sounds reasonable.
- Publishers are probably going to go rabid with lawsuits if some modders start making serious cash. Most of them allow modding so long as it is not for profit.

I'd wager my ad watching is minimal. Don't own a TV or cable service. I use adblock and ghostery for browsing. I'm very anti-logo.
Hey Cutter...not trying to provoke a rant or fight....I'm just curious. If you believe in supporting the little guy, why would you use adblock? Take Blues for example....that's one of the few revenue models available. Hosting ain't free.
