Consoles create a plateau for game developers. This plateau lasts for around 8 years. And some PC games are dragged down to this plateau level.

part of advancement is the inherent reward and when reaching limits of current tech trying to break them with new tech/programming. Consoles slow down the need for advancement in PC technology by creating plateaus and limits development to mostly programming.

in their statement, I am reading is as that they will use the most of current tech, and that consoles will not be part of their market as in compromises are being made. This could also mean the min specs for SC is that better of the current gen console which is bad tech anyways.

 

Ummm that's not been true ever, on both counts.

PCs pretty much never slow down in terms of advancement. There's new components released every month that either adds something, 'more', or is a repackage of something else at a lower price. Whether consoles are available or not that would still be the case because it's a open platform

And regardless, whether such a thing as consoles exists or not, PC games would not suddenly make quantum leaps in terms of design because frankly it'd take too long as a budget concern to address the key areas needed in design, i.e. programming and A.I. Graphics are a simpler form to upgrade, and the P.C. will have an advantage there, but only to the few who can afford it.

That video is a joke that lacks irony, and if some can't understand what's ironic about CIG joking about, 'greed', well then I'll bow out here ;)

The biggest problem is that certain people on this forum haven't worked out that their not the target market anymore and those that do target them are doomed to fail, because it's impossible to recapture your youth....

MOBAs and lobby based games are the future, it's the target market. Young people have gotten into gaming through that way and aren't interested in, 'seamless', worlds or hard grinding for something in a group, or many of those other elements we went through.

The MMOs of the past were actually pretty crappy games but they were a unique experience to those there at the time. Those days of wonder are gone never to be recaptured. Accept it or be doomed to get angry on forums forever.

Bill's probably nailed it just right. As far As I can tell mechanics wise it's very true to their vision they presented on their Kickstarter.

Whether it's a bugfest or not is impossible to say. We only have access to a non-story element of the game, but it could be the most stable Obsidian game ever released..although that's not saying much ;)

Some people will hate this game, it's very much of the Infinity Engine era in terms of presentation. I for one, am looking forward to next Thursday :)

Don't worry, Minsc and Boo will save the day!!!!

 

'You point, *pay $60.00*, then I punch!'

*sigh* I hate my life...

The irony is...that guy got permabanned in Wildstar for...botting, well auto key pressing software which is essentially the same thing.

There are bots in every game, hell if you don't have bots you aren't successful enough to warrant them...

It's a sad day when dorks like me complain about a top three list of anything game related and...I'm not playing any of them...

Did you forget that you can exchange in-game gold to gems? 

Did you forget that you can have people unlocking the story for you? 

Should ANet give you money for playing their game? :D 

I guess people like you just want to sit on your arse and get spoonfed with liquid gold. You can unlock the whole season with gold for less than a week. 

 

Yes, if this is the person that you are, then Gw2 is not for you. Also, those chapters WERE offered for free. Your mistake you didn't take an advantage of it. 

Are you going to sue Walmart because the discounted Nutella is out? Judging by your reaction I'd say you guys would....

So the first thing I am to be forced to do as a returning play is grind for gold? Ya no. Im not bashing GW2, I have supported it with my cash since beta. I dont support pay walls. They cause bad feelings in most gamers and is a great way to lose players. There are so many smarter ways to get players wanting to give you their money. This video I will post below covers very well what pay walls do to gamers and Anet is making a HUGE mistake.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mhz9OXy86a0

How is anything funded? It has to be somehow and for active players the story stuff costs nothing.

I don't think the Living Story is particular great but it's a good deal for the active players of GW2. Not sure how you can argue against that..

Originally posted by tryklon

Why would I do that? Theres no shortage of other games to play...

Plus, it was not my idea to make the game buy to play, in fact, when I bought the game it said I could play without monthly fees and never stated that I would have to pay for future content... so theres always that legal path to pursue I think.

So your going to sue a MMO with a cash shop, a said MMO you had no interest in till recently, because not absolutely everything in the game is free?..Are you going to sue them over charging for Heart of Thorns as well? Because by your logic that should be free as well....Good luck with that

 

If it makes you feel better though, Season 2 is hardly worth getting in a fuss over...

People won't like it but WoW moved with the times and appealed to a younger playerbase that have different interests then we did 10 years, i.e. quick casual group play, very much intune with the rise of the MOBAs we have now.

Expecting a company to appeal to you, when you've changed in the 10 years the games been around, is just bizzare.

I'm currently stuck in MMO limbo, unsure of what to play. I log into FFXIV now and then, but nothing really grabs me.

 

I want a game that I can get fully immersed in, and progression feels rewarding. It's like navigating through a minefield when attempting to search up reviews of the game, as a lot of the reviews are from way back when it launched. 

So, I'm coming to those who love and still play the game. What is it you like about it? This isn't a thread for those who dislike it, as I've heard those arguments plenty. I'd like to hear from the genuinely involved players of this game to know just what it is that keeps you subscribed.

Piece of advice: Nobody you know, (or don't know in this case), can convince you to enjoy anything. You have to, you know, try it?

It could very well have many updates and if you play it you might still find it dog shit. It could be that you try it and get hooked on some aspect that no one here mentions...

The thing is: try it, it's no ones job to sell it to you, the info is about and if money's that tight then you shouldn't be worrying about what game to play anyway.

Pretty bold claim. So it is either better than TBC or WoTLK. Is that really the case honestly? (Not trolling, genuine question)









Yes. It really is that good. 








 



Is it better then Cata? Yes, levelling experience wise


Is it better then MOP? Yes, levelling experience wise


Is it the best expansion eva? No, not by a long shot, it peaks very early and then becomes tedious. 


The reviewer is still overcome with garrison hype. The game has the same grind and tedium it had before, just behind the, 'garrison', wall rather then the dailies or key grind wall.


The garrison is the only real new feature in this expansion and it's fun at first but then it becomes the same old wow format, 'need this, to grind this, for this most benefit, which is best for pvp/raiding'. That of course takes rather a while to get while the new dungeons are okay but not amazing.


The levelling experience is great, (although the story forgets it's principal characters at times), but after that it's the same old WoW.


I've played WoW for years, this is the first expansion I've quit after two weeks, why? Lack of investment or caring for the rest of it. For me WoW has run out of tricks and just doesn't, 'do it', for me anymore.

One thing I haven't seen in this thread mentioned, with stean, you can still play your games even with no internet(granted it is not an mmo Type game). Can you play your origin games with no internet?

good pt.

 

no you cant use origin without internet but you can with steam.

You Sir should stop trolling this topic.

If you hate EA, just say it. But stop the false informations.

  • 1. There are hundreds of non EA games in there.
  • 2. There is the same Offline mode implemented that steam also has.

 

Origins HAS drawbacks, huge ones. But also positive points. Simply lying to make a point is not exactly productive.

The majority of ea games on there are ancient.

 

From being in origin now, all I can see are all the ea games which are sold at rip off prices and 1 game which isn't ea which is far cry 4. (still need to check if ubisoft are  a sub of ea)

 

Also you are wrong, there is no offline mode for origin.

 

You have to log into origin online. There is no offline log in.

 

This offline login is particularly useful when family sharing on steam or if for some reason you lose internet connection.

 

Origin isn't very good for the reasons I listed b4.

 

I still have it to get the free games they give away but of the 4 free games I have, 3 of them are so ancient that I will never play them and then there is deadspace which I am grateful for as a free game.

 

Edit: the one and only time of year that I do buy games off origin is black Friday when the games are actually sold at a decent price as opposed to the usual ea rip off prices. I only do this for eas older games though because eas newer games will still be sold cheaper on g2a.com. For example, dragon age 3 is 60 pounds on origin right now, screw that. Its less than 30 pounds on g2a.com. Steam on the other hand has a great selection from 100s of developers at great prices all year round.

There is an offline mode, just because it isn't the same as Steams doesn't mean it's not there.

Steam has it's major drawbacks as does Origin.

One of those two is a high priced but efficient games delivery service for it's company tiltes. The other is a community based marketplace with questionable storefronts.

At the end of the day don't be a bitch for any company, and you won't get shafted.

SWG pre-NGE had 32 professions, NGE brought it down to 9 (or 12 if count the 4 Trader profs as separate). SWTOR has 8 with 4 different Jedi/Sith variations.  It certainly do with some more. It would have been good to just have just Jedi, and then do bad things to become Sith. I don't think there can be a born Sith.  It seems the devs could not think up enough classes.

SWTOR is the NGE NGE'd

Except the game isn't set in the Movie timeline and the, 'Sith', race and cultural identity is a thing. If you'd played the game you'd know this but of course you haven't because your, 'owed', SWG 2.0 and hate SWTOR at a fundamental level.

Stop trying to derail this thread and please can you and your fellows get over something which happened 9 years ago..

Using your criterion of dropping sales = failure, those are the MMOs that you came up with?

I really don't know what your criterion for failing is then...

You can have this thread, you've gotten your rise out of me. enjoy it :)

Well now you are just assuming what my criteria is.  Every game has to be evaluated based on context.

 

WoW is a success, it makes a ton of profit each year...

SWTOR has been making good money..

Lineage as we see is NCsofts flagship mmo... (1.5 decades old and still drastically outperforming gw2)

LOTRO and EVE are examples of smaller games that can be successful relative to what is invested into them and the companies making them.

 

GW2 is one of NCsofts primary titles in the west... yet it has been shrinking almost every quarter since release... It has gone through "course corrections" and drastic changes indicative of a company trying to figure out how to stop a decline in popularity. 

Can GW2 recover?  Sure anyone could... NCsoft isn't closing down shop tomorrow... but the changes it has made so far haven't worked... if they had the sales wouldn't still be dropping so consistently. 

GW2 was always going to struggle in the Chinese market, what with the strange way KD marketed the game and the huge amount of competition in that space. I expect more aggressive moves towards rebalancing the gem shop with must haves, as we've already seen with the traits change.

Still, it's better news for them, then Wildstar...those figures are worrying...

The options will still be as, 'limited', they'll just look better.

I.E. The polygon counts much higher but they aren't changing or adding to the fundamental options

It would have been a fine idea had it been in at launch.Now it's just a hassle for someone who's played through the content already a dozen times before.Just goes to show that ANet does not care about its existing customers and is only interested in acquiring more.

 

[mod edit]

The big deal is you can buy that trait now as opposed to, you know, just earning. Giving this game a P2W element, sorry a second P2W now since the gold nerfs and gems exchanging on gear. Regardless of what way you spin it, it's still a P2W element. If I have more money then you, my character can become better then yours just by spending that money.

Is that wrong somehow? From a business pespective I'm not sure how much money it'll generate, which is why I feel that it'll probably get more, 'extensive', if the numbers don't add up. From a players perspective, it could help generate interest in revisiting certain areas, which is good thing, the bad thing is that it's still a monetisation on a key aspect of the game and could lead to some, 'panic', buying and resentment.

I said many years ago this game has to make money somehow, the route they chose would always leave them open to this sort of thing. The problem with this site is that there a very vocal minority who jump to GW2 defense in all things like their shareholders. I can't stop you from screaming how wrong I am more then you can stop others who are more critical.

For the record I do like the game, I just don't love it or a profit-making company, unconditionally..

i really love the new acquisition they added for newly created characters..

 

You dont get the traits for free anymore (except for sPvP) you can either buy them, but my favourite way is acquiring them by finishing certain feats, this gives people a reason to play, if you played trough the pesonal story a few times, just following the feats to get all your traits is a fantastic way to travel the world...  

No cheating required, your traits indicate what action you need to perform...  It works perfect for me, traveling and roaming trough the world in search of new and more traits..  and for people that dont like this, they just can buy all the traits for like 42 gold and 360 skillpoints...

 

I hope that soon they will add more skills and traits, that can be acquired in such a way, by finishing some feats, or quests and then paying for them in skillpoints, a combination of the 2 above...  It would be the very welcome vertical progression system...

I'm amazed this hasn't been mentioned before.

Are you saying you can now, 'buy', trait points? Let me guess it's optional though right? Because there's some ridiculous amount of grinding you can do to acquire them?

I wonder if the, 'the cash shop is optional', argument can be rescinded now...oh no, wait no need it's ANET, they get a free pass on this site, they'd never do anything shady to get cash from you...

I think kickstarter is nothing more than a scam.  You have oculus taking millions turning that around into billion, what did the kickstart supporters get?  NOTHING!  The supports say it's like sharktank or any investment.  Well for those who actually invest yes for kickstarter NO.  Tell me which shark would put money into something with a guarantee of ZERO return in investment?  Which one would do that?  Let me tell you none.  

 

 

There are episodes of shark tank where people who been on kickstarter come on the show and get invested in...So I guess not none.

There is a guarantee as well, they are bound by law to produce something to give to their backers. If not they can be taken to court. If you check out their FAQ it says they sign something before hand, only problem is kickstarter will not get involved if they think the company actually tried producing something, meaning the mass would have to take them to court by themselves.

Shark tank invests so regardless of the kickstarter or not they are not giving them money like kickstarter did. When a kickstarter company starts to offer profit sharing with its backers, then they'll be on the same ground as shark tank ( kind of )

And one example of the state filing a lawsuit really doesn't open the doors wide on making sure a kickstater always delivers. If a kickstarter could show they actually used that money on the game but just ran out of funding there is nothing anyone could do to them in a court. The kickstarter that is getting sued produced nothing and has no evidence that they even worked on their project.

Isnt it the exact same thing? I invest $20, I either get a return on my investment for a $50-60 game, or the game doesnt produce anything and you lose out on your investment.

How is that different from investing in a company? Someone invests in a company and a a deal is made, if the company does well they get about a 20-30% return on your investment. If the company tanks you get nothing.

So with kickstarter you get a 200-300% return on your investment,  investing in a company you get a 20-30% return.

It's classed as a , 'charitable donation', as I recall. This is why Kickstarter is such an absurd idea and could only exist in the games industry, where people will willingly give over their money for some hot air promises, with no protection to themselves.

Investment has some guarantees and is structured around key stage reviews. Also investing works on the principle that targets have to be met before more money is funded. This is smaller amounts, from multiple investors so feels more of a , 'negligence', scam to me. i.e. you've give a small amount relative so you won't notice when it's gone. If you donate money to a charity you can check what the, 'bulk', of the money is being spent on, (in most countries charities have to be registered and so are open to anyone to see their books), but for a profit making venture thats just plain dumb to those giving the money, as there's no protection.

I've said this before but Yogscast won't be the only ones who'll go down this route...

I am not sure who pissed in their cheerios, or kicked their puppy but man nothing in life is worth hating that much...

I think the core question here is why are so many people hyper pissed instead of just indiferent.

any theories?

Probably some kind of psychopathology.

but why this game more so then others is the question.

 

Are you suggesting that ESO got more hate then, AOC? or SWTOR? or any of the WoW expansions?, or FFIXV before it was gutted and started again?

These things always happen in cycles of disapointment.

What did you say about Neverwinter again?

kkthanksbi

Neverwinter is an amzing game for the uber rich or the super casual.  What it does it does well.  While I no longer play Neverwinter  Iconsider it to have the best combat in the genre.  One I wish was used more often instead of this quasi-combat crap that plagues games like Wildstar, ESO and GW2.

 

For the record I am super touched that you follow my posting patterns and know about what former posts I've made.  E-Stalker alert LOL.

I only remember two of your posts, the general gist was:

1. Neverwinter will be the sleeper hit of the year.

2. I'm not playing Neverwinter anymore because the cash shops too much.

The 2nd one was kinda obvious with a little research, the first was laughable. So you see when you start saying something similar, in similar hyperbolic fashion, it's jars a memory.

Hey and if you don't want to get, 'stalked', (cute), don't get overexcited and make ludicrous predictions. Enjoying something is one thing making outlandish epoch defining statements is another..

Nothing wrong with predictions.  I still think it would of been a sleeper hit if it wasn't produced by Perfect World.  Secondly I never said the cash shop was too much.  I spent over $600 in NWO but the reason I quit was my guild fell apart mostly because they refused to spend money and were stuck in mediocre enchantments.

 

None of what I said about it was hyperbolic.  Nothing I made in this post is hyperbolic.  It is how I feel.  You may disagree with my statements and it's your right to do so and disagree, but these are my feelings and I have plenty of past MMO failures (FOR ME) to prove it.

 

I suppose I need to preface every statement I make from here on with (for me).  The average person can see someone's statement and differentiate between opinion or not.  And sure my entire argument is filled with opinions, but I sir, am still entitled to them.

None of this makes any sense and is contradictory to what you've written before, but I'm assuming your a very emotional person that expects others to feel exactly the same about your game of choice.

You may think I will critise you for that but..fair enough, I honestly hope EQN works out for you and you find other who share your passion, in that and maybe other games ;)

Seriously if you have that amount of hope for something considering this industry...well I think that's admirable, it's not me, but good on you :)
