News Comments > Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns Beta Event Next Weekend

Lets see, same old unworkable "live" server wide event that plays like molasses, check. Same old "we don't have time or resources to balance PVP and PVE seperately" but "we love to churn out more funny hats, and jumping puzzles," check. Same old grindy reward system, check. Same old worn out cliche story mode characters, check.

NCSoft has all the money they will ever get from me. Stopped playing and paying, years ago.

The problem with MMO's is the market is saturated. If your inclined to play an MMO most likely you have a WOW account. You don't need another MMO experience. WOW hit just when the MMO market was the largest it will ever be, or at least until something like the Boomer generation happens again.

The key fact here is Blizzard cancelled Titan. It saw no future in replacing WOW. Either they don't see the that market exisiting in a few years, or they would just make more money churning out card games, and simpler to make MOBA's.

Hopefully some small independent will stay true to a calling and produce a new MMO along the lines of Minecraft and Space Engineers, short on graphic glitz and long on creativity and social possibilities. It may never make the bucks WOW did, but it will satisfy a small but dedicated fan base.

News Comments > Total War: WARHAMMER Trailer
11. Re: Total War: WARHAMMER Trailer Jul 31, 2015, 08:58 Bub
 
Looks like you will need a monster rig to run this at anything more than slideshow frame rates. Even this rendered for publicity video gets choppy here and there. Still has a long way to go. The lancers don't seem to spear foes, just beat them down as if the lance was a hammer.

What universe is this? Not the Warhammer I know with space marines and the imperium. Looks way more Tolkien.

Video is top notch. Well composed and shot.

As with all Total War games, camera is careful to avoid lingering too long on individual soldiers, who spend most of their time just standing still doing nothing.

High hopes this one delivers, but given past performance of this house, it is definitely a wait and see.

Yuk rats. Maybe the 'rat pack' vibe from Bikini Beach would have worked better.

I stopped handing Blizzard their monthly fee after the abomination that was garrisons was introduced and flying was removed.

It is always unpleasant to watch a franchise like this wither away after the parent company moves on to more profitable pastures (MOBAS and card games).

These sweetheart deals have been going on for ages. Bribe someone to give you the the public record, get issued a decree that makes you the only one with the right to sell it, laugh all the way to the bank. Might have had a glimmer of respectability when paper publishing and storage actually cost money, but in the digital age, it is corporate welfare.

Exploring... really! Doom, and just about every other FPS from the 95 to 2005 era was all about memorizing maps and the best routes to the power ups, as well as internalizing the respawn time of said power ups. You ran your pattern, changing it as needed, and obliterated anyone who crossed your path.

I'm too old for these twitch based games now. Moving on to sandbox building worlds like Space Engineers.

The real problem here is the big brands with more disposable money than sense. What kind of manager buys advertising and does not check to see if it is actually seen by anyone? Isn't it SOP to rate add effectiveness by the conversion or click through factor?

The advertisers here are just burning money seemingly without a care.

Looks like vanity advertising, done only to sooth the egos of the managers who get to cut the fat checks for it. Look at me, I can spend big bucks and not break a sweat.

This game is in 2D.

Procedurally generated "art"?

Ever looked at procedurally generated graphics or music?

Good luck with that!

This is soo true. Think of every MMO you have ever played and count the number of times you discoverd something no one else had ever seen in the game. This game might work as a single player game like Skyrim, but as an MMO, it will be all immature potty joke names, and griefing.

Another comment tucks this in along with Star Citizen, another single player game that by choosing to go multiplayer persistent notches up the complexity and geometrically jacks up the development time to the point that a finished quality product looks less and less possible.

Wonderfully wonky concept, but wasted on a side scroller. Should have been a first or second person 3d shooter, now that would be awesome, no BFGs here, you are the BFG "Tomba!"

I think a law should be passed that makes it illegal to publish outmoded game GUIs like side scrolling. I mean really how hard is it to execute the same concept in 3D?

Isn't there a whole level of Hell dedicated to people so gullible they will buy anything waved in front of them with a flourish. Just say no to card games, or in this case card games converted to 3d animated toons.

To this spoiled techno PC rig elitist, all or you who don't have similar rigs, you know like most of you out there whose PC most likely breaks a sweat at anything approaching 24 frames per second this is a real slap in the face. You don't matter. According to this guy you should not be playing PC games unless you can afford to maintain a state of the art gaming rig, every year.

Like many smarter than average people, Mr. Smarts commentary just goes "whoosh" past the smaller minds of your average internet commenter.

Just like the television media, your average person tends to get mesmerized by the spectacle and personality, while loosing sight of the facts that are brought to light.

In my opinion it is time to reign in this wackyness that is crowd funding with a bit of regulation. If not, every huckster out there from tv preachers to diet gurus will be milking this crowd funding bonanza for all it is worth very soon. It is time to require crowdfunding to follow the same kind of rules offering stock for sale comes with.

Chicken and Egg deal, not a bad game by the reviews, but mostly multyplayer with no players, so could be a good move to jumpstart some more players to give it a go this week.

Looks pretty, but I bought SC2 a few weeks ago in the big summer sale, and have yet to fire it up.

Still competition is always a good thing, good to see some new effort in the RTS field.

Reads like a scared VP desperate to shore up his standing with the boss. Whistling past the graveyard.

This is like watching a huge train wreck in super slo mo.

Stock up on popcorn.
