  • Suspect in Call of Duty 'Swatting' Death to be Extradited to Kansas to Face Charges - General News

    And off he goes!

    Good grief, I hope this useless trash gets the book thrown at him and gets some hefty prison time.  He's already been arrested for bomb threats and such before this and he's unrepentent about everything (all he did was tweet that it wasn't his fault, and had no empathy for the dead man's family or anything.  Cripes, what a sociopath) so it's pretty obvious society has nothing to gain from this jackass being anywhere but prison or the afterlife.

  • Star Citizen Wins Prestigious "Worst MMO Business Model Of 2017" Award

    Erillion said:
    Funny that by its own definition since the start of the project Star Citizen is NOT an MMO. Making that MMORPG vote somewhat futile. 

    Have fun
    People vote about it having the worse business model and the only thing you can do is point out it's not an MMORPG (even though it is, despite how you keep twisting definitions as needed to suit your agendas).  Star Citizen fanboys sure love derailing and deflecting things.

  • Crytek Filing Lawsuit Against CIG


    (IN CHAMBERS) ORDER by Judge Dolly M. Gee: The Court finds that Defendant's Motion to Dismiss the First Amended Complaint or Claims for Relief Therein or, in the Alternative, for a More Definite Statement and to Strike Certain Portions of the First Amended Complaint (FRCP 12(B)(6), 12(E) & 12(f))19 presently scheduled for hearing on February 9, 2018, is appropriate for decision without oral argument. Fed. R. Civ. P. 78(b); C.D. L.R. 7-15. Accordingly, the motion is taken UNDER SUBMISSION and the hearing is vacated. IT IS SO ORDERED. THERE IS NO PDF DOCUMENT ASSOCIATED WITH THIS ENTRY. (kti) TEXT ONLY ENTRY

    Far as I can tell and from reading and asking around, this is basically the judge saying she has all she needs to decide on the MTD and thus doesn't need to hold a hearing.  IE, "I've heard enough already. I'm going to make my decision." (as further proof of this, there allegedly isn't a hearing scheduled for tomorrow anymore from what others are saying on various reddits and forums)

    To not even bother with hearing any further arguments from both sides means she must be really set in her decision.  Which I imagine also probably means either "CiG are complete idiots" or "Crytek are complete idiots".

    Some people say this means the decision has a 90 day deadline while others say it's still supposed to come tomorrow, hearing or not. I'm fuzzy on the legal rules around that. Hopefully the latter but I wouldn't put it past the legal system to take so friggin' long.
  • UPDATE: Belgian Minister Wants EU Ban on Loot Boxes, Speaks Before Committee Ruling

    About time.  It's been well-known by the companies implementing these things that they prey on the exact same addictions that gambling does, which is why they make so much money in the first place.  It was akin to profiting off of the same psychosis that gambling profits off of but with none of the regulations!  Talk about loophole abuse.

    As for how it personally benefits me and presumably most other gamers, paying money and not getting what you wanted for it is one of the most infuriating things ever.  ...and is one of the reasons why I and many others hate gambling in the first place too.

    Sure, a lot of games might die because they can no longer abuse peoples' addictions for the money they need to stay afloat, but on the bright side at least it'll weed out the weak and get companies back to focusing on making good games instead of spending so much time trying to figure out how to abuse human psychology for their money.
  • BoBoo Coins Introduce Bitcoin-like Mechanic that Can Yield Real World Gold - Tree of Life - MMORPG.c

    ridiculous....smart devs will never share the view that PvP and loss are a bad thing, and neither will the majority of gamers...since most ALL of the top played games have PvP....

    ya'll just huddle here together trying to reinforce each other in your little corner making it seem like theme park MMOs, with no loss or consequences, were the glory days....they sucked and most of us are glad they are dying. When will you people understand that getting everything you want gets boring in like 2 seconds? Seriously, all you get with no PvP or item loss is a bored player base crying for content the second they gobble it up, and a shitty economy where crafting is worthless..yay...

    It's certainly done wonders for this game!
  • State of Elyria update from Caspien (Jan 2018)

    Harbinger of Citrus:

    The game has no chance of release this year and that is acknowledged by the development team.  At this time 2020 is the most common projected date of most folks. Whether it's too late? Who knows.  I think you will see test cases come in the form of CU and Crowfall.   

    Can I be the Harbinger of Jests?

    2020 is ridiculously optimstic.  MMORPGs typically take 4+ years and this game hasn't even started development yet.  At most, a separate MUD "game" is in "private testing" that might have some tools they'll use to make the actual game.  ...heck, on that note, especially with the loss of Spatial OS, the TOOLS to make this game haven't even been developed yet.

    With their team now reduced per the latest State of the Studio update, then I imagine that even if this company were somehow able to stay funded, you'd see the game in 2021 at the most (and probably 2022 or further.  I'd say likely 2023+, really).  Though I doubt the company will survive now.
  • Erin Roberts Interview Uncut

    Durzax said:
    Ah, yes, the lets complain about the non-answers of a game developer. By an industry that has a history of non-answers when a game is in development.

    Citation needed.

    It's nice that your point is so flimsy and irrelevant that you had to attempt to deflect greater scrutiny from it with a ton of unrelated animated pictures.  It's like inserting a bunch of mini-derails into a derail.  That's some really dedicated pro-derailment, there!

    I don't care what you think, I stand my opinion relating to this specific person as I posted before.

    If you don't care what I or others think why do you spend so much time trying to tell people they're wrong and/or defending your opinion?

    That makes zero sense.

    He doesn't care what you think about his opinion yet almost EVERY OTHER POST in this thread is him rambling to people about his opinions on what they think about his opinion.  There are times in this thread when it's like

    All about a ridiculous derailment that Erin's clear lack of understanding and planning for his own game is actually just a speech impediment.

    But don't worry. He doesn't care about others' opinions about his opinion.

    For such ludicrousness, I hope he's getting paid for this, although I'm pretty sure whatever they're hypothetically paying him for it, it's still below the pay-grade for such dedication.
  • Valve Boots Insel Games' Portfolio Over Reviews Manipulation - Guardians of Ember - MMORPG.com

    Delondial said:

    Pretty harsh, but then I suppose it's a gibbeting meant to serve as a warning to others.

    Not harsh at all.

    Valve knows that the integrity (or appearence of integrity) is a huge deal to steam users - and it directly affects players "trust" in Steam.

    I laughed so hard at this. You're lying to yourself if you think Valve is working hard towards the appearance of integrity based on the number of garbage titles released on steam on a daily basis.

    Isn't that the point of the reviews in the first place, though?
  • Do Soulpacks = Lootboxes?

    Maybe the publishers and studios took the same stance that Slapstick is taking (which is also how I feel about the matter, too).  IE, "If you're going to lootbox with these "soul packs", why not just go all in full-monty with lootboxes, etc?"

    I wouldn't be surprised if Caspien's reply was basically "Soul packs aren't loot boxes!  Good bye!"
