It's a pretty nasty way to ensure people spend cash. You can't make gold to buy Arena keys or packs unless you win. You can't win unless you have the new cards (and lots of them). Power creep forces people to buy packs to keep ahead of the curve or else suffer through a LOT of losses and grinding until you can earn enough gold. Most people will buy the packs rather than being trampled.

Well gee, isn't that how most free 2 play games work? You just left out the part that it also involves gambling (i.e. so called randomized contents of the decks/packs for sale). Pay X dollars and you might win! or you might get crap. This is where all the carneys and grifters exist now, running these online F2P rackets.

Practically 90% of everything new is made somewhere in asia now. China is just a single albiet large state of the mega region asia. Like Texas is just a state in north america. Why do you think after years of getting rid of trashy looking chrome on expensive cars, it is now being broughtback, because cars and chrome and new and shiny to people in china/asia now.

Got my fill of jump scares and gore in the Dead Space series. At least in DS you had some creative weapons and ways to deal with the nasties.

Unless this has a new twist or take on how you fight/survive in this game, I'll pass. No word yet on those mechanics.

Glad to see their success. They have created and delivered something remarkable, while flim flam men like Chris Roberts rake in cash while delivering mostly hot air and sub par unfinished knock offs.

An the shearing of the sucker sheep just keeps on...

How sad is it, a room full of people who feel they have to increase their status in a yet to be delivered game by purchasing status symbols in the form of digital models. This is truly the con of this age.

The more BS getting shoveled out by CR and company, the less likely the game will ever fulfill the original promise. He trivializes the hardest part of the whole project, i.e. melding disparate game play, FPS, flight sim, MMORPG, etc. into a coordinated seamless experience. Oh that, that will be easy peasy and we are leaving that to last. Right.

When a company employs a PR department to manage image long before ever having a finished product, you know it is a scam.

Every single bit of news coming out is how they are working on x feature as a seperate thing/module which leads me to believe they will never meld it all together.

Wow, if he would franchise that and put them in malls etc. I would be all over it. That would be so cool to relive being a small fry getting to play what then was Star Wars level technology. Coolest thing I have seen in a while.

This guy has always been long on promises and short on delivered product. In my opinion, Wind Commander was pretty awful, nowhere near as good as Freespace, Homeworld, or Descent. Just go watch those grainey full motion video cut scenes again, yuk.

Every time he opens his mouth he promises more stuff, while the delivery gets pushed further past the horizon.

Every wonder why no one has ever delivered a seamless combination of FPS, space flight sim, planet exploration, and MMO? Maybe because it is just a tad harder than just throwing separate modules together and hoping they play well together.

Interest is not picking up as the dev hoped so a change in direction away from exploring strange alien worlds and towards your standard space rogue shootem up ala Chris Roberts perpetual in development Star Citizen.

3 million a month, great motivation to be in development forever.

This guy is too flakey to con the regulated stock markets, but the unregulated crowdfunding scene is easy pickings for his type.

As long as the crowdfunding site is up, there will always be new stretch goals, new features that are necessary before the game can be released.

People must really need jobs bad to work for this sleeze.

Even with a Steam discount, $39 bucks is a bit too proud for a RTS rehash, i.e. Generals with better details.

Maybe when it drops under $20 I might give it a go.

What a cheesy move. Remove a feature that has been in the game for years (flying) then sell it back a 'new' content with a boatload of grindy requirement tasks.

WOW gets more infomercial grade cheesy every day.

Stopped playing after garrsions became a thing. There is nothing rich corporate VPs love more than cutting creative talent(writers and artists who create story driven content) while repackaging old content and reselling it or replacing gameplay with with cardgame mechanics.

News Comments > Star Citizen Social Module Released
63. Re: Star Citizen Social Module Released Aug 31, 2015, 08:32 Bub
 
Looks like any other current MMO city. Lots of stuff that looks very detailed from a distance, but is obviously just a front when you get closer. The same static NPCs on every corner. Usually deserted, as many game devs are deathly afraid of real social areas in games. GW2 and Perfect World at least make an attempt at it but GW2 is so deserted and toxic now and PW is egregiously PTW.

Yea, I thought Anarchy Onlines cities were cool and neat looking, but 9 out of 10 of them were always deserted window dressing.

Can't say this video shows me anything we have not seen before or that is particularly attractive.

News Comments > Guild Wars 2 Core Game Free; Raids Coming
17. Re: Guild Wars 2 Core Game Free; Raids Coming Aug 31, 2015, 08:07 Bub
 
GW2 spends more on slick advertising campaingns and 'managing' it's player community than any game out there.

It is so slick, fanboys have been taught that gem sales are not microstransactions, that there is no gear treadmill, (oh really, try getting a team without a legendary and ascended kit).

One of the most egregiously elitist and toxic communities out there. It has it all, obnoxious elite snobs to moronic free playing South American Spanish speaking sub-teens.

Which is a shame as technically, the game has really good graphics, runs fine on an average computer, the only nigel I have with it's graphics is that WoW has them beat hands down in terms of color pallettes. GW2 is so flat and unsaturated, which is sad given the smooth action and detailed models.

No thanks.

News Comments > Guild Wars 2 Heart of Thorns in October
23. Re: Guild Wars 2 Heart of Thorns in October Aug 30, 2015, 10:24 Bub
 
For a game that touted itself as a new take on MMO's I found the GW2 player community one of the most elitists I have seen in any MMO. If your not decked out in plenty of cash shop financed gear and playing one of three classes, you get insta-kicked from dungeons, and not welcome in fractals. Just trying walk around and mind your own business and get trash talked if your wearing drab gear you just find while leveling, while you have to listen to people brag about all their legendaries etc. I found the GW2 community very toxic. So all of that and the devs love of jumping puzzles, which I find idiotic, drove me away from this game for good.

No insider rules here! No pesky rules against a promoter or game dev from giving a "associate" a itty bitty leg up.

Looks like they adjusted it so once you get to the top, you can kick back and not have to compete as much, looks like insider favoritism to me. Surely Blizzard has a published policy regarding "insider playing".
