Good for them.  Yoshi P, made a very compelling argument for why subscriptions are better, than other options for a game, and its players.  WAY too many companies have been chasing the tasty pie in the sky, that many of the Asian games have.  But different models work best for different cultures.  It really does matter if ones game is good, and if content is added in a timely fashion.  I'd not count subscription games out, in the Western markets, quite yet.

We can't just patch our old client? Opening that launcher says cannot verify something or another. gotta download whole thing again?

If that be the case, where do we download the new one?

Had that problem as well. Just uninstall and download the new client. It would appear that there are so many changes, that its just the way its going to be.

1. Trust no one 

2. Never fly alone


 

Do you realise that those 2 rules are both not compatible and false? :P

Flying with someone doesn't require any real degree of trust... ^^  Especially, if you are paying attention to the other rule... Never fly something you can't afford to replace... ^^

My list of rules from the almost six years I spent in the game are shorter.

1. Trust No One.

2. NEVER fly (or even undock) what you can't afford to replace.

3. NO place (out side of dock) is safe.  Concord isn't there for protection. Its there for *retribution*.

In all of those years, I never joined a player corp (I'm still with SWA), and I never joined anyone's group/fleet/gang.

Thanks Bill, thats a fair review, all things considered.  No doubt the haters and trolls will be howling for blood, but then thats to be expected.  I'd like to see some of them attempt to deal with the types of HIGHLY complex software and hardware thats required to make a game like Firefall (or other high level MMO's) function.

When all is said and done, its not the haters or trolls who will have a say about the games future.  Its really in the hands of Red5 and those who share their vision of the games potential.   If they can effectively communicate and share that vision, with enough people, then the game will be a success.

Not having any real taste for Kool Aid, I've been of two minds about the game for the more than a year and a half that I've spent in it.  On the one hand, there is the games potential to be something really great. On the other is the continuing sequence of mistakes and fumbles, that have taken place.  But thats all part of the learning process, when dealing with software and hardware of this complexity.  So, I'm hoping for the best.

Over all, I'm quite looking forward to what Red5 adds to the game over the rest of this year, and into next.

You guys should see the beta forums, some peope DEMAND that they do the live letters in english,  I also stumbled upon a thread where a user wants them to address the NA players in english. Even though a translated version with all the important questions and answers pop-up on the forums a few hours later.

Ouch some people make it really easy to dislike English speakers I have no problem waiting on them to translate the live letters.  They always do a good job and answer the important stuff anyways.

Its not just english. You find rude, thoughtless people in any language.  What makes NA different is the wide spread entitlement complex, mixed with an authoritarian government, with delusions of ruling the world.

Yoshi P has done a very good job so far.  I'm quite looking forward to seeing how the game plays.

i stopped reading after "full loot pvp"  and "all gear is player crafted" - good luck with your niche game

Exactly.  I have NO interest what so ever in yet another narrow niche, free for all full loot PvP game.   That meme has been done to death.  Speaking of which, I'm surprised they didn't add perma death in with it...<face palm>

That looks like fun, but I'm not really into MMO PvP any more.  Tera has been a fun game (I've run to level 60 three times. Lancer, Slayer, Warrior). But what I'd REALLY like is for their tech staff to do a better job at QA and quit breaking peoples installs when they have a major patch.  Its getting to the point that I dread major patches.

ArenaNet started it because saying the holy trinity is bad was a way to sell their game. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the holy trinity of mmos. MMOs fail because of bad vision, bad game design and publishers sticking their noses in where it doesn't belong just to meet a quarterly earnings report.

Good points. Also keep in mind that AN has always tried to be as different from WoW as humanly possible. Even to the point of nonsense.  The threat dynamic made sense for its time, and also made fights manageable.  But it also tended to make them both more simple and complex.  It made the role of tank easier, but it also made the design of the fights more complex, as well as limiting.

But as a side effect, it also made good tanks and healers very, VERY important for group content. Which lead to prima donna syndrome with many of both classes, and the negatives that go with that.

As has been pointed out, countless times over the years, WoW's art style was picked for various reasons.  One of those major reasons is that WoW will run on a WIDE selection of the installed hardware base.  That being the case, it increases the percentage of the gaming audience that can run the game on their current system.  Thats good for profitability.  The fetish that some people have for photo realistic graphics is not only over blown, but unwise from a profitability perspective.
"Best in show" is a subjective value judgement, made by the people involved. Its their *opinion*. If you disagree, thats *your opinion*.  Its really as simple as that.

Its not a bad game at all.  I quite enjoyed it for about a year and a half.  But then I spent almost six years in EVE, so I was used to that type of game. ^^  But given that the host servers are in eastern Europe, the ping to the western US is just not good enough for this type of game.  Not to mention the internal political problems they've experienced, within the company itself.

But if you are looking for an EVE style game, but with mechs on the ground, its worth a try.

They likely looked at EQN and decided that it would slaughter what ever grind fest they had in mind.  Thats likely why they scrapped Titan and started over.  Keep in mind that I have two 90's an 87 and six 85's in WoW. I started in late beta.  Wow for all its faults remains a good game up to level cap.  But its time, and that of the typical grinder is just about up, as far as I'm concerned.

I'll always remember the fun times I had in the game (I have almost three thousand screen shots), but its not what I'm looking for in a game any more.  Which is why I quit before I had a third 90. 

EverQuest Next, looks like a great of fun, and if they can actually get all of those concepts to work together, so that it plays well, will be the game I play extensively next.

What else would you expect? Haters got to hate.  If you think you've seen fireworks up to this point, wait until they reveal that PvP isn't going to be the full loot gankfest that some of them have been dreaming of... ^^  The hysteria is really going to be epic.
It looks like a great deal of fun.  Lets see if they can actually make all of those concepts work well together.  They have some impressive tech, lets see how the game plays.  If this works out, it could be a game changer.

Bought Defiance during the steam sale.. nice open world shooter, but the UI... whoever designed this should be replaced by an actual UI designer..horrible, unintuitive, consoly.. maybe works for Xbox but will PC users get a better UI than this?

well they keep promising improvements.

the only interesting news on that front is the original overseer of the project has been replaced.

Yes! JUSTICE!

Then there is still hope

There usually is... But look what the last promise of "Hope and Change" ended up with... ^^  Its obvious that the PC audience is considered secondary at most.  Just look at the lazy, sloppy keyboard control system for vehicles, as just one of many examples.  The game could actually be much more fun, if they had spent a little more time (and thought) working on a mouse/keyboard design system.  Its too bad, as it has some good things going for it (I like the combat system, and the weapons selection).

Great news for Blizzard. I was worried about their future considering the plans of their current owners.

Kotick's pretty much Satan himself so I doubt it'll get any better from here on out.

I'm always amused at the amount of airbrushing it requires to conceal his horns... ^^  ActiBlizzard will be better off out on their own. It remains to be seen what impact project Titan will have in the future.

Did Lincoln become a tyrant? Hmm

Can't make a cake without breaking a few eggs.

Anyone who examines real history knows Lincoln became a tyrant.  His own actions demonstrate his lack of respect for his oath of office, and his trampling of the Constitution and Bill of Rights are well known.

I've never subscribed to the concept that the ends, justify the means used to achieve them. Any more than I believe that one has to destroy the Constitution, to "save" it...

Power corrupts in games and real life.  Its not a matter of picking the "right" people.  Its a fact that NO ONE should hold that amount of power.  Nor should anyone who actively seeks out power, be trusted with it.

"Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power"

  Abraham Lincoln

   There are many bullies in waiting, just waiting until they have power  to pull a horror show.   MMO games draw these people, as it is the only way to have power over others. Those people were always douches, they just never had an opportunity to exercise their desires to dominate and torment others.  Through their actions they feel empowered and thus feel that they matter, it's actually really sad.. It's not so much a product of wealth, wealth is just one of the means to execute these desires if they exist in a person.

  In game, charity removes the challenge of the game for the recipient . Are they playing the game or do they want the game played for them? Are they learning anything about game mechanics from your charity? Are they going to buy things they actually need or are they going to buy stupid things because they don't understand the game?  Is charity "GOOD" in a game?

The irony of the above quote from Lincoln, who went on to become a tyrant, is lost on far too many people.  They wouldn't have had me in their test. I'd have refused to play a game that wasn't balanced.  But how many people would have responded in that fashion?

Give yourself plenty of time to get anywhere in San Diego during the Con.

Parking is hell also. Save some cash for parking. If your hotel is far away that is.

Parking is WAY beyond nightmare.  I didn't even bother. Its better for your blood pressure,

i hate to come barreling in here on my douchecanoe but while i honestly dgaf what others do with their money i highly urge people not to donate to any kind of charity except for work, time and items, in the US there are only a handful (literally) of people who oversee spending corruption and ethics in these businesses, i did a job at Save the Children and that place should be called Save Our Children, all driving brand new 150k benz in a super nice HQ in Conn. right on the river, insane really, its too bad there isnt better ethics and checks for this but its hard for people to get things running correctly it seems..
 
 
 

I'm certain that we just need to give the "right people" enough *power* to "do something" about this... ^^  Depending on ones ideology, the "right people" would be neo cons, "progressives" or some such.  After all, thats "worked" so well in the past... Hows that "Hope and Change" working out for you?  ^^

Until people realize that NO ONE can or should be trusted with power, the world will continue to be ruled by sociopaths.
