  • Public service announcement: LOL does not stand for "disagree".

    That's it - I'm LOLing everyone is this thread.
  • Mass Effect: Andromeda - Making a Good Game Better - MMORPG.com

    If they fix the weird eyes and bugs, I will pick it up when it's on sale with all the DLCs in a year or two. Till then I have a long list of great games to play on my PC and PS4. Really glad to be over the pre-orders and hype.
  • Banned hacker whining video

    Hacker doesn't know why hacking is wrong. That's why we can't have nice things.

    Look at human history. Look at the world. Endless...
  • Star Wars Battlefront II Blog Reveals 75% Reduction in Top Hero Credit Costs - MMORPG.com News

    It's their original intention that matters. Why would anyone support that? It's like the abused person going back into the relationship after the abuser says, "Ok, I've learned and I'll be good this time."

    You know they will get you later and people will be outraged again. Just look at people who still play ArcheAge. 

    But whatever. Have fun with your lightsabers. 
  • Should MMOs Do Away With Raids?

    I don't like raiding. It feels like work to me. I experienced it as choreography. When boss does X you do Y. When boss does this, you stand over here and do that. Not fun for me. People are uptight and overly concerned about their loot drops. Much fighting and bitterness ensues. The whole vibe is like living in a suburb with a bunch of uptight people keeping up with each other in material status, looking out for who got a swimming pool, a new car, who's kids are going to the private school, etc. Not my cup of tea.

    However, there are people like that and it's fun for them, so there should be MMOs with raids. Some people are appointment schedulers and they like their ranking and showing off their new gear.

    Of course, however people have fun and enjoy their time is valid, but they can stay out of my game and into their leaderboards and gear linking in chat, etc. Good for them. I would prefer if the devs of my game just focus on content I enjoy.  What I enjoy is not better for everyone, but it's better for me: consensual pvp, exploration, crafting, questing, housing, small group events, community events, etc. I don't like to be in tight guild hierarchies. That's the part that's like work and raiding creates the need for this.

    So all MMOs don't need to do away with raids, but there should be more MMOs that don't have raids and just put that whole mentality aside.
  • EA Wins Dubious Honor as Most Downvoted Reddit Post Ever for Star Wars Battlefront 2 - MMORPG.com

    I just don't buy EA. Simple as that.
  • Account Harsh Ban for improper naming?

    It's not a fake accusation of harassment. It is harassment.

    I'm not going to bother to explain it to OP in this venue, because if he doesn't understand it without an explanation, he wouldn't understand it with an explanation.

  • Microtransactions is working

    I have the money to spend on them, so maybe that's easy for me to say, but still. 

    I have the money to spend on them too, but I don't.

    This issue (SWBF2 microtransactions) is not limited to gaming. The larger issue is what kind of society we want to live in and how we (as consumers, citizens, etc.) allow ourselves to be treated. So I see how we spend our money as how we vote on these larger issues.

    We all know that money is power, that corporations lobby governments, sponsor media, etc. etc., so this single purchase is connected to a complex web. If you don't want to think about that when you make a purchase, that's fine and I don't care. Obviously, it's each person's choice and people wind up getting the government and the society they deserve in the end. 

    I'm not preaching to convert anyone, but I do want to explain how I think about spending or not to make clear that it's not just about the money for everyone.
  • A Glimpse at Medieval Life - The RPG Files - MMORPG.com

    In my first two attempts in the tutorial:

    (1) Got thrown in jail and died in a fire
    (2) Got my ass handed to me by the town drunk 

    So you definitely don't start out as some savior told of in the prophesies. This, I love.
