  • AlBQuirky said: I don't want to stir a bees nest here, but I have too often encountered people using "art" as some kind of prestige or status thing, the more outrageous, the more prestigious. I see the same for people calling games "art." I ge…

  • jmcdermottuk said: Games are not art, they're games, entertainment. They contain art and artwork but they're not art in and of themselves. Same holds true for also things like classical music, literature and plays meant for theatre. Mos…

  • Xasapis said: As far as I'm concerned, for something to be considered art, it needs to hold true in the test of time. So for me games are not art, unless they become what I would call classics. That's a bizarre requirement. It would me…

  • JoeBlober said: Week after week Star Citizen is shaping up nicely. Better performance, refined gameplay and 3 months before the next massive patch bringing a Planet-Size city and its moons together with more profession. Alpha at its best…

  • Looks like yet another feature that can't be used unless you make another purchase in addition to paying monthly membership fee. Wizard 101 is a good game, but I don't like how they charge for access and then constantly add stuff that requires addit…
  • mgilbrtsn said: I'm really looking forward to Crowfall, but enough with the interviews and newly released video. It's good to keep the community informed, but too much just seems... meh. It tries to keep the hype high which can be a negative…

  • alkarionlog said: so the game is not even out and they are trying to sell the engine? They've also been selling the game that's not even out ever since start of Kickstarter.

  • It looks like their future development goals include:  -Alliances: Tribe Chiefs can arrange meetings with each other and form alliances between their tribes  -Barter: Barter with other tribes to get items necessary for your survival However …
  • It's hard to suggest anything without knowing what you've tried, so I'm just trying to suggest something unlikely: -Monster Hunter Online -Dauntless -Soul Worker -Trove -Saga of Ryzom
  • It's not necessary, Intel is just doing it because they've got enough market power to do it. If you buy AMD processor their motherboards are better compatible with multiple processor generations. But with that said, AMD's pre-Ryzen 2 motherboards d…

  • That promise to refund means nothing: Intrepid Studios doesn't have any other business besides Ashes of Creation, and if they game fails to launch they are out of money. You might get position of an unsecured creditor in bankruptcy proceedings, but …
