  • ARK: Survival Evolved's Expansion is an Abuse of Early Access - The RPG Files at MMORPG.com

    I also dont agree with what they did HOWEVER, I find it sad how gamers mix 'The Game' with 'The Developer'.

    The reviews should not change because the pricing model didnt seem fair and people should not be going around saying that they no longer 'enjoy playing the game' because of something I developer did that is related to your wallet but not your game play.

    It would be perfect in my mind to keep the two subjects separate. There is the game and how fun it is and then there is developers, developer promises, developers suggestions, pricing models bla bla bla.

    as an example in another industry, I might buy a shirt the shirt might be awesome, I love it. the thread is nice, its comfortable and it washes easy. Then I find out its made by slave labor. Well that is bad but the threads dont change, the washablity doesnt change. I should get mad at the company that makes it however reducing its reviews because of slave labor is being dishonest
  • Pokemon Go Review - The Biggest MMO in the World

    I have a Garmin GPS which by the way is the worst tech product I have ever purchased that I can recall.

    I bet you a dollar to a donut that Pokemon Go is a better GPS device the Garmin is.

    ha!
  • ARK: Survival Evolved's Expansion is an Abuse of Early Access - The RPG Files at MMORPG.com

    ^ This one of the worst analogies I've read on MMORPG. No, I'm not going to explain why because it's so silly it doesn't warrant one.

    It was so bad, I erased the paragraph I was typing about developers deploying games via piecemeal and pricing. Thanks mate.
    basically

    reducing the review score because of bad business practices is being woefully dishonest as a gamer

  • MMORPG.com : General : Hawaii's Chris Lee - 'Together We Can Stop Predatory Gaming Practices'

    We have two choices.

    Let the government regulate micro-transactions
    Let the gaming industry regulate micro-transactions

    The government wants to exploit for taxation and control.
    The gaming industry wants to exploit for pure profit.

    which is better?

    PFFT!
    there is a 3rd choice.

    Not buy games that are not enjoyable

  • Why do people get in a big hurry to play a game on release ...

    I will add by saying this, most people who are susceptible to marketing think they are not

    ...s PAYING MONEY FOR A CHANCE AT A REWARD. ....
    your still not following me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 'your rouge gets +2 for the next two rounds' is NOT a reward!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! for anyone outside of gaming 'your rouge gets +2 for the next two rounds' is nothing more than two people talking together making up shit. It has no REAL value at all...zip...nada...nothing
    uggh, failed logic again. 

    Nothing, ever, has value without context. 

    Money has no value if you live in a society without money. A car has no value if you live on the moon. A holiday trip has no value if you can't leave the country. 

    Value is always contextual. 

    (Also, glad to see you've changed your argument again, we're now back to value - which was my argument - instead of you insisting on it being monetary). 



    So, an in game bonus has value to the gamer. It does not matter that it doesn't have value for non-gamers. Context. I know that is probably too complicated for you to understand, but please try. 
    you need to be able to explain how a novels description of a bookcase means that bookcase is something.

    can you do that?

    games are FICTIONAL...10000000% fictional, all aspects of it, all items, all wins, all things. If one can make a GOOD arguement that items in a game have value then that is a huge step forward.

    I am not saying the argument cant be made but I am saying you aint doing it

    The danger here is that if we decide we can regulate THOUGHT...IMAGINATION...its then thought police.

    If you come into my office and say 'you are awesome!' that is a reward. can we start to regulate based on that? i hope not

    English comprehension was never your strong suit was it?
    ....
    look I am going to dial this down and ask you (and me) to stop escalting the conversation in this way with every post. I am not reading anything you have to say until you dial the insults to ...zero
    OK, I'll promise no more insults if you can promise no more straw man arguments?
    ...
    no..no insults unconditional.
    So, you're allowed to insult other people ... 
    I started to escalate as well but I am here to put and end to the escalation.

    Those are my terms..PEROID. I am done with discussing this with you
    Ok, I will stop insulting you. I admit this has escalated and I have lost my cool. Watching you insult people, derail topics, troll people, spread mis-information and use endless straw man arguments over the last 6 months (and longer....) has been difficult to tolerate, but the recent sudden death of my mother has impaired my ability to control myself. I apologise. 

    nope, not good enough sorry. 

    three strikes I am out, dont expect a reply but I will if I want to but unlikely

  • Star Citizen - What are your expectations?

    OP:

    If you form expectations around something you do not have control over is that a good idea?
    Other than we base our entire lives on expectations of which we have no control of?

    For example, I expect that the US will not get involved in a nuclear war with North Korea.

    Perhaps you mean its not a good idea to get one's hopes up over something they can't control?

    no actually we do not.

    we base it on predictions, not expectations.
    expectations is a word that implies if it doesnt happen then someone is directly accountable for the 'prediction' to not work out. 
    expectation and prediction are very different
