I'm honestly shocked that they are still in business at all. All their games are absolute ghost towns. They must have cut costs to ridiculously low levels and be floating on just a few whales.

Agreed, downloaded the recently released Planetside: Arena and it's dead on arrival.

I previously had no intention of buying this, but going to do so now.

For years I would buy games at release, install them, then throw them on Ebay for $5 less than I paid.

I'm confused on the cross platform play, how are console players going to respond to continuously getting annihilated by PC players?

4. Early Crypto Sep 7, 2019, 00:38 Jagacademy
 
I invested my life savings into crypto in 2013. Spent 3 1/2 years religiously reading every new piece of information, every forum post, every news article, every argument for/against, etc. I just knew, KNEW, it was going to explode in value. (At one point I owned 5% of all NEM, which became a Top 10 marketcap coin)

In early 2017 I started an anti-depressant called Wellbutrin which over the course of two months made me hypomanic, resulting in terrible decision making. Ended up selling all my crypto for minimal profit in March, literally a week before it started it's exponential rise. The part that is so bizzare, and makes me question whether I am in some kind of Twilight Zone, is that in the back of my mind when I was selling I was telling myself "Just wait and see what the value is on Christmas Day, don't look at it until then." If I had listened to my intuition, I would have logged into $200 million.

Since then I've started drinking, suffer from bouts of suicidal tendancies, and will go into hysterics anytime I think about it.

So not everyone who invested early came out ahead, some of us are still haunted everyday.

I enjoyed Starpoint Gemini 2 to a point, my only real complaint is that the galaxy seemed lonely and lifeless.

Anybody play this one yet?

You will melt faces as a Shadow Priest in PvP

Pain in the ass to gear one though. Nobody wants a Shadow Priest in a raid (maybe 1 in a 40 man) so you're stuck playing Holy forever trying to get geared up.

News Comments > WoW Classic Population Control

29. Re: WoW Classic Population Control Aug 18, 2019, 12:08 Jagacademy
 
There will be mass population loss within 3-6 months.

Most of the people excited about Classic never even played it, they've just always been butthurt because they feel like they missed out on the good ole days others talk about.

It was boring, repetitive, tedious, and other than "Go kill X of Y" verbatim ad infinium there wasn't much of anything else to do...that's why they kept releasing expansions with more content.

Played the original Diablo last night. It's nice to know next time I play that I'll be on the same map, with all the places I've been still cleared.

Does it automatically stretch to full widescreen? If not, easy to patch? Last time I looked into it, the widescreen was only available with patches that added a lot of other stuff onto the game.

I've always disliked customer satisfaction ratings/surveys. Basically, in most situations, if you don't max out the ratings it is effectively like kicking the person in the head.
Exactly. Bought a car recently, and got a rundown about how if they don't get a perfect 10 afterwards in all 20 survey categories it's essentially like getting an F. What is the point then?

"Fluid combat but the open world isn't worth investing your time into"

I was afraid of that. Another game where a half assed open world was throw in as an afterthought just to bait some extra sales.

9. Re: Steam Top 10 Feb 25, 2019, 09:45 Jagacademy
 
I don't know how anyone can honestly argue with a straight face that sales for Metro haven't suffered due to their exclusivity agreement with a platform that has an order of magnitude less traffic than others. They've already admitted that most of the game's sales have come from the PS4 market and they won't even release the PC sales metrics.

I am loving the Jack Black gaming channel. He is trolling kids who want to see current games and showing retro gems instead.

News Comments > Battlerite Royale Free Weekend

It's a fun game, but very difficult to win, as you're playing against Battlerite players with 1,000+ hours of experience. (and it's not a 1 shot kill shooter where anybody can essentially get lucky), a skilled player is going to beat you pretty handidly no matter what you do.

6. Steam Link Nov 20, 2018, 15:03 Jagacademy
 
The funny thing is that I bought my Steam Link earlier this year for $5 when they were 90% off for several months.

Steam announces they are being discontinued and are almost out, suddenly they are now a Steam best seller despite being listed at their original $50 price.

No. It's a multiplayer game.
Although I understood the points you were trying to make, I've seen day one reviews for 10,000 other online only games, so I can't assume those are the reasons why not a single one of the dozens of reviewer publications haven't posted theirs for Fallout 76 yet.

The fact that 76 has been out for days and not one single mainstream review has been released is very suspicous. Are they all afraid of the Bethesda "fallout" if they publish a bad review? So they're all waiting with baited breathe to see who goes first?

News Comments > Command & Conquer Remaster Details

10. Re: Command & Conquer Remaster Details Nov 14, 2018, 21:46 Jagacademy
 
The single player campaigns were good, but for competitive multiplayer both games were garbage. There was no balance whatsoever, one single tactic would beat all others. I remember watching a Red Alert tournament in which every single player was using the exact same build pattern and units.

The W3 Remaster will be an order of magnitude more successful than these.
