    This is just one more reason to ignore WoW as a serious gamer until they come out with the vanilla server.  The only way this game can be more kid inclusive is to remove chat and just have an emoticon reply system like most games made exclusively for children.

    This is looking really good.
  • What is your most hated feature or paradigm in an MMO?

    I'll add another one - crafting games mislabeled as something else.  These games call themselves sandboxes and use it as an excuse to not have any content.  The original sandbox games all had content.  They had quests and npcs and stuff to do.  What is currently called a sandbox game usually means no content at all, or "player made content."  Player made content means grinding and grinding to craft.  If the whole point of the game is to craft it is a crafting game.  It is not a survival game, or rpg, or sandbox, or anything other than a crafting game.  

    Also, if WW3 happened today and I survived do you know what I would craft?  Nothing.  I would scavenge and sleep in already made houses in already made mattresses.  I would grow nothing and make nothing.  Everything I would need is already made.

    If I was dropped on an island with nothing man made in a hostile environment brimming with hungry large carnivorous creatures my goal would not be to become a master craftsman.  My goal would be to find something high enough to jump off of and die before I died much slower from exposer or as living animal food.  Even if I wanted to live my goal would never be to be a master craftsman.  It would be escape the awful island, and to not be a master craftsman.  In no situation do I ever want to master a building craft.  I hate building anything.  I hate mowing my lawn.  I even hate tightening door knobs.  I especially hate Ikea.  I work hard at my not building profession so I can buy completed furniture.  When my wife goes to Ikea I refuse to put it together.  She makes me anyways, but I hate it and complain loudly and often.

    N o word on an auction house?  I play games to have fun, not waste all my time trying to buy or sell something.
  • GOG Winter Sale

    The thing about gog sales is they really are only for young people or people without discerning taste.  I would have said young people only but people I know to be about my age still state they have a backlog of games to play.  This would only be possible if someone somehow hasn't refined their taste after decades of trial and few errors.  I really wish I could find some plentiful source of games I am interested in.  I envy these people.  

    I remember going to EB when I was young and there were tons of games I wanted to play, and 90% (if not more) of the store was PC games or PC related.  Its kind of weird thinking that games where actually more expensive back then.  I don't remember them having sales and it took lots of new technology to drop the prices on outdated games.  I had to spend $50 or so for pretty much every game - new, old, small dev team, large, whatever.  If it was a game made for the PC it was going to cost $50, with no returns at all (due to piracy) and a total crap shot on if it was good or not.  

    And this is where I regale you with tails of walking 50 miles through battle zones to school. And spending years in my science lab to make a working boot disk.  And hard disks louder than airplane engines.  Back when rock and roll was men dressed as women yelling nonsense.  We didn't need your damn hippy sales back then.  Sorry for wasting your time with this useless post.
