That really sucks.  I've been following Oculus closely, and I'm sorry this tragedy happened.  What strikes me is that here was a pedestrian who was in no way endangering anyone else, struck by a car fleeing the police.  This is a reminder to me to be really, really careful driving, and that I never can be absolutely sure when it will be my time to go as well.

R.I.P. Scott

It's not really a reminder to be careful while driving. The guy was hit by a speeding car that was fleeing from police as he walked on a crosswalk.

If anything, it's a reminder to not let your guard down and always be cautious and observant of your surroundings to try and avoid problems, but even then, not everything is avoidable, or even able to be seen. 

Sure hope the guy that killed him gets what's coming to him.

Then don't say the words. It's not that hard. I don't see why you'd ever even have to say names of companies, or links to them, or whatever, unless you're actually using them or something. 

I don't remember ever seeing any goldspam in-game. Seems to be working.

This is not so much a video game issue, as it is an Western societal issue. Western game developers, mainly,  are just catering to the masses for entertainment, and if what the people want is huge muscled up angry brutes, then that's what they're gonna create. 

The Japanese game developers like to throw in a big muscular dude here and there (and some of their games are all about them, still) but they seem to be more about how it's not the size of the protagonist, but their mental will to complete the task. They also have their emotional extremes, but I've seen more happy heroes from Asian games in general than from the Western games, as well as male heroes that will break down and cry more often.

Just my experience, though. I may have just missed all the games that counter what I said on both sides of the world.

The only times I remember voice chat have been negative. Guild leaders REQUIRING it for raids so they can bitch people out for mistakes is not exactly what I call fun.

Indeed.  I'd go so far as to say that the whole "voice tactical advantage" claim is more perceptual than actual.  Because the games haven't changed from text to voice: it's all responding to visual cues from the screen and translating it to the hand.

In fact, physiologically speaking, a voice command of "hey I need a heal" slows down the reaction time of the healer from what it ordinarily would have been if the healer just looked at the party bar and reacted.  Because instead of simply seeing who needs the heal, the person now has to spend some more fractions of a second hearing something orally, processing what it means, processing whether it is important, and executing it.

No, I'm convinced--just by the neurology of it--that the reason guilds require voice chat has less to do with making groups efficient.  It has more to do with making the leader feel secure and ascribing blame.  Because a good player is going to know what to do, instinctively, without being told just by looking at the visual data on the screen.  But when we can tell everyone what they ought to be doing, it makes us feel more secure that things are going "to plan," and it also is a good way to ascribe blame when things don't go to plan.

In short, I think the voice "advantage" is more emotional than actual.

You're an example of someone who makes up facts to prove what he already believes. If you had ever actually done "serious" raiding..as in a group trying to do hard mode content ect you'd never even attempt to make the argument you've just made.

Good raid guilds don't have these meniacal raid leaders who need their ego padded constantly, or who throw tantrums all the time. That comes from people trying to perpetuate a stereotype so they can keep using it as an excuse.

Voice coms are required in raid guilds because no one wants to type out a short story before and after each attempt. It's very easy to miss a typed msg in the heat of combat. It's pretty hard for a good raider to zone out and miss a voice communication.

Hey man, I'm sorry that we've had different experiences, but I've been in quite a few guilds in the past 12 years or so I've been playing MMO's, that have had bitchy, whiny raid leaders in voice chat. Just because you haven't experienced much of it doesn't mean it's not a regular occurrence.

At the same time, I'd be hypocritical to assume all guild/raid leaders are the same, so I understand where you're coming from. I suppose I've just had worse luck.

In many games you can set macros, so people should be learning to use macros to spam instructions in chat if need be. But people are too lazy to do this apparently.

It's irritating, to be honest, when I'm forced to use voice chat for ANY reason. Aside from that, I guess they can throw it in as an added option, but I'd rather they didn't waste the time and energy on it.

At least WoW has evolved to give short messaged on screen to let you know what's up at many points. LIke, "Blahblah is about to do this, move yo' ass!" It's a great thing, though the raiding still sucks.

 

Both the wife and I recently quit raiding with a guild in eq2 for this very thing.  The guild leader who happens to be the raid leader, would have this little speech on every raid.  Our healers suck, bla bla bla,  they need to do better with healing and cures, bla bla bla.  We are entering hard mode you guys need to get with the plan.  There were trying to staff a 24 man raid with 5 healers. That left 1 healer in each group but the mt group, and wondered why folks were dropping like flies. The one hard mode fight requires 6 healers lol. 

So I got tired of hearing this for the past 6 months.  It did not matter if it was me or somebody else, that stuff gets old after a while, and you always knew who was getting chewed on, after all in ventrillo you can see who is down in what group. 

Having the raid leader always chewing up folks and spitting them out not fun, some folks are ego maniacs. The game is supposed to be fun, not a second job.  Certainly not one where you got to hear that you suck, and the raid leader does not have the gumption to roll a healer to see how things really are. 

 

Exactly, man. That is some BS, and that guy needs to calm down big time. I had a similar guild leader in vanilla WoW for Molten Core, and he said basically no one else but him and the raid leader could talk on Ventrilo for any reason, and everyone was required to have it on to hear them 'cause they didn't wanna type. During the fight, all you could hear was the raid leader saying what to do, and if we wiped, he would basically shout shit like "FUCK! You guys fucking suck! Do it right next time!" lol

After a couple wipes, I decided to ask a question in Vent, and all I heard from the guy was a sigh and then he told me to shut up.

Pretty much completely ruined raids for me, 'cause I never wanted to do anymore since that day. Though I'm sure the amount of time I would have put into it if I wanted to would have done the same.

Pando is an abomination which at the very least leeches your bandwidth and is widely regarded as spyware, but fortunately it is not necessary to manually edit config files to stop Aion from reinstalling it every time there's a patch. It can be disabled by right-clicking on Aion in the games list in the NC launcher, and selecting "properties" then un-checking the "Use Pando Media Booster" for downloads" tickbox.

OK, that's even easier. Thanks for the tip.

I'm so glad I don't see games like you guys do. If my outlook on my hobby was as bleak as all of yours I'd just go do something else.

Games are still fun. Some games I spend money on, some I don't. I never HAVE to spend money on any game. If it stops being fun I just go play something else.

You don't have to spend money on any game? I doubt you play console games, or just about any MMO with the F2P level cap.

 

Agreed. Devs are tools and nothing else. Games are tools for the devs. There's nothing else to be said about it. They care about money and not about creating a quality game, and that's all.

Turn off Pando Media Booster P2P.

C:\Program Files (x86)\NCSoft\Launcher\Config\Default/Games.xml

Look for three times the <P2P>true</P2P> happens and change it to <P2P>false</P2P>, and I read that has something to do with Pando Media Booster and working around it. They're not that hard to find, though there's a lot of code there.

Anyway, my download speed went from 17k/sec and like 10000+ hours, to 2.2mb/sec and it'll be done in an hour and a half or so.

This is probably known to some degree, just thought I'd post it since I've personally been so frustrated with their shitty launcher.

or maybe no one knows why you are getting a slow download?

To that end, did you try restarting the download? You can also try restarting your router.

 

I did both three times. Guess it's just a shit download. It actually went down to 17k/sec. Fucking pathetic.

This followup post was an accident. Clicked quote instead of Edit on first message.

Aion might have, as some call it, the best F2P model out there, and I've decided to give it a go for the first time since launch, but I am trying to download and install it through the NCSoft launcher, and the best speed I've gotten so far was 62k/sec, but generally it's between 30-40k/sec.

Apparently it's gonna take me another 5500+ hours to download this game. Somehow I let it run for 10 hours while i was at work and stuff yesterday, and it managed to get to 9% complete, but goddamn. I haven't had a download this slow in the past 10 years or so. lol

I don't know why it is, but I'm never gonna finish the download at this rate.

But perhaps there's an alternative download source somewhere?

 

I'd probably try Age of Wushu, but to be honest, I won't do it with their shitty character creation. Unless of course they have added more than 3 hairstyles for guys. lol

That actually looks like shit to me and something I'd never care about. But they are thinking outside the (x)box, at least.

You have put me in my place, sir.

Xbox has ALWAYS been shit. The only thing they had going for them was Halo and Gears of War, and I'm not buying a system and paying nearly $100 a year if I wanna play these games, then play the multiplayer. It's always been a total ripoff and I'll never understand why people love Xbox 360 over PS3.

I guess for the ever so slightly better connection on games?

When I say ever so slightly, I mean hardly noticeable.

There is not a single thing that Xbox has ever done better than Playstation.

I am not a fan of F2P, to be honest, but there really is no correlation between the downtimes/other issues and the fact that it's free.

Any negatives of Neverwinter could have happened with any type of game, whether B2P, F2P or P2P, and in fact, there have been worse issues than what we see in Neverwinter in P2P games, for sure. Even WoW has rolled back their servers longer than 7 hours before because issues arose where it was necessary.

Shit happens.

Jesus, you even circled it for me! 

We all know what they are calling it, but when you open up cash shops and declare that there will be no wipes, it's released.  They are only calling it open beta so people like you can say, "hey, it's only beta --- i circled it!"

I have to agree with that, as soon as the cashshop opens that means that the company feels the game is ready.

I don't know what a cash shop has to do with it at all. I see games regularly asking for obscene amounts of money for Founders/Lifetime even before the games are in closed beta. I see games in closed beta with cash shops. You can't really think that those games are all "released" and if you do then you are mistaken.

If people are stupid enough to pay real money for a game that is clearly advertised as open beta then its their fault. If people believe companies claiming anything before final release then it's their fault too.

Have you people not learned anything from the past 10 years of failed promises, over hyped games or flat out scams like WarZ?

Apparently not.

Why do you keep blaming the player base for the unethical business practices of developer?   Our country also used to have people working in sweatshops 16 hours a day 7 days a week, was that also the employees fault?  Your really a piece of work.

Your argument of...... if it exists and people are willing to participate makes it okay, is absurd.

I have NEVER said it is ok, you simply assume that.

 

It's pretty clear that Cryptic is to blame for this bug that has existed since STO. It's also pretty obvious that Cryptic ignored reports and forum posts about it until it got so out of hand that it threatened their revenue. It's quite clearly bad business practice but it does not change the fact that the game is advertised as open beta and people bought virtual items fully knowing the risk!

Yes, i think the players are to blame that these things happen because they pay for ridiculous founders editions, open betas or kickstarter that barely have concept art to show. Here, i make it really clear for everyone:

STOP PAYING FOR UNFINISHED GAMES AND DEVELOPERS WILL STOP RELEASING THEM!

 

Not everyone has the same definition of "what's finished."

To them, it might be considered finished, while the players might consider otherwise. Whether we have issues or not, that doesn't make it unfinished. Cryptic has made it quite clear with their no wipe, and their real money exchanges, that they believe the game is ready for launch. They're just cautious about the server's ability to handle the load, and their real money - AD - Zen conversion rates.

But yes, saying it's open beta is just enough leverage to screw RMT players. Technically, they could probably reset everything, and say "sorry for your loss, this was OPEN BETA!"

I feel everything they're doing currently is for the best of the community, whether it's enjoyed or not. I wouldn't wanna play a game with a completely whacked out economy.

I think I'm randomly rambling on about random shit now maybe.
