Still more wow than any other MMO to date.

But no longer wow enough to tell the public. This truth is brutal. Prepare for pain.

It's not a closure, it's a vacation.

To put it with Body Count: "I said, 'Kojima, we're goin' on
a vacation, a permanent vacation, bitch.'"

Goddamn, can you fucking believe 5.9B for candy crush????

just imagine for a moment, if they spent that on new IPs, you could pay 5900 developers $100k a year EACH for 10 years. I'm pretty sure you could build something more impressive than candy crush with that army. But when has Acti-Bliz gambled on anything that doesn't have a proven multi-billion dollar revenue stream lately?

For just under $100,000,000 you can build a space sim including FPS, bells, and whistles!

Star Citizen's single player campaign might even be out by then! (Squadron 42)

Ahahahahahaha! They're talking about June 2016, not June 2061! Hehehehe... Don't rush it, guys. In June 2016, even a pre-alpha version of the first two second of the starting sequence of mission 1 of the first episode of the now episodic Squadron 42 won't get released. CIG is doing their best not to rush it out, you know. Hahahaha!

About No Man's Sky - is there a game somewhere in this? If so, what kind of game? Just exploration or also Elite/Privateer kind of gameplay? A single player story? Anything?

Can I use this as the title of my upcoming Star Citizen documentary in 2020?

I don't know much about GW2, but if the game doesn't have a subscription, why would they have to thank you for anything? You paid for a game, and got a game - isn't that all there is to it?

If you had been paying a monthly subscription, then I sort of get it, but with the way the game is now, it doesn't make any sense to me.

Man, I really hit a nerve there for some people.

Whatever. As I said before: no thank you to you loyal player base is in my opinion a very bad move. Would it have hurt them big time to say "Guys, you stayed with us from the beginning, here's $5 off from the expansion for you"? But the only guys who got a present is EVERYBODY ELSE but the veterans. Is it really so difficult for a lot of you talking about "entitlement" to understand that it would have been the right move to show some gratitude to people that supported you from the beta?

But to each their own. I cannot and will not accept such a behavior and will therefore no longer buy anything with ArenaNet on it. Hey, I might be one of the lucky guys and - after the release of the next expansion - might get this one for free.

Gaming Law:
If you buy early, expect to pay more. If you wait, expect to pay less.

I know! But pay less does not mean get it for free. Then again, I could agree if they gave the base game for free as long as they would in a way honor the support of those who paid for the game that they're giving away for free by offering their loyal player base a rebate on the expansion. But the veterans get NOTHING, the newbies get a complete free game. And this is plain WRONG. Oh my, whatever. Won't look back and have plenty of other games to play. ArenaNet is now on my shit list - no more money from me. That's the only message they understand. I can wait till they offer the expansion for free.

Me: "Easy. I won't buy your expansions. How do you like that?"

Hasn't this happened with most MMOs, outside of wow?


No. If you bought the Guild Wars 1 expansions you only got access to those new regions but not to the base game.

I'm predicting you'll buy the expansion in a week or less, if you didn't actually already give in and pre-order. If you're anything like most gamers, you'll talk about holding out on buying the latest thing, but you'll cave. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon. Gamers always cave in.

The day I buy this is the day WoW will go f2p.

On the current Diablo 3 patches or the expansion? Because you guys realize they are working on another expansion for the game.

With only one panel, I doubt we'll see much, if any, of an expansion announcement. They'll likely go over 2.3, preview 2.4, and then they might get enough time to say Necromancer before running off stage.


I just mean that they most certainly have more than 5 people working on the expansion.

They got their top men working on it!

This can't be possible. PC gaming is dead.

Isn't it funny? Few years ago all they'd do is talk smack about pc gaming and how much it sucks... Too bad publishers haven't figured it out yet, pc gaming is booming.

And those Steam numbers will easily dwarfed by the concurrent number of player in the Star Citizen universe after its release... in 2037...

So, "live-action" does not mean "in-game"? Holy semantics Batman!

Wow! Did you really have to ask? Yes, semantics is a beast. Like "chair" is not "table".

Then again, since 8 bit graphics are the hit for a lot of people here, nobody should even question the fidelity of the graphics, right?

I wonder how much of that money they're wasting on big actors?

Figure about 4-5 million per A-List actor for 4 months of voice acting and MoCap performance.

- Gary Oldman (5 million)
- Mark Hamill (5 million)
- Mark Strong (5 million)
- Gillian Anderson (4 million)
- Andy Serkis (5 million)

Then about 500k - 2 million for B,C,D-List actors for the same work.

- Sophie Wu (1 million)
- Sandi Gardiner (500k)
- Craig Fairbrass (500k)
- Liam Cunningham (2 million)
- Ben Mendelsohn (2 million)
- Ian Duncan (500k)
- Jack Huston (2 million)
- John Rhys Davies (1 million)
- Rhona Mitra (1.5 million)
- Gemma Whelan (1 million)
- Harry Treadaway (1 million)

Conservative estimated total: $37,000,000


The numbers are total rubbish. And four months for voice recordings? Those are usually done in a couple of days! Or do you think that Hamill and Co. will be moved to a hotel, waiting for their lines to be written, then moved to a studio to record the few lines, back to hotel while the authors write further dialogue? Man, I am a SC Black Knight in the eyes of the SC cultists, but your numbers are not even remote friends of the true numbers.
