  • Witcher Novelist Demanding $16M in Royalties from CD Projekt Red - MMORPG.com

    Let's put it this way. 

    Remove CPR from the equation and substitute EA instead. 
    People would be all over EA and supporting the author. But because it is a game that people seem to enjoy they over look logic and favor the game maker.
     The law states he can receive more money. There is a reason countries have added the bestseller clause for creatives. The Netherlands just passing it into law in 2015 is a good example.  
    Creatives get shafted all the time every day.

    This will settle out of court. As it always does. Regardless what CDR fans want to think or believe.  
    Remove the author and put a kitty cat. Remove EA and place the 5th form of matter.

    Dude, stop "what if".

    Nobody here is attached to the case, and if any of us were we wouldn't be able to legally comment on it. So we are just sharing our thoughts about the author that has no impact whatsoever on the actual lawsuit.

    Chill.

    Some people get too frgigging hung up on legal gambling definitions with all of their exceptions and technicalities when they should really be looking at whether something is a simple and above board transaction or something rigged that has more in common with what you find in fair midways or back alleys.
    I don't know why this partciular issue gets me hung up. I know lootboxes are a predatory practice.

    I just don't agree with a ban or an age restriction.

    That's probably because you're lawful good and I'm chaotic good :)

    You want to see good laws applied logically and justly... I just want the fucking things eradicated from gaming by any means :)
    As a D&D player I just want to point out  someone who strictly follows the law, regardless if it is harmful or not is lawful neutral. Not Lawful-Good. Lawful-Good is someone who makes laws (or tries within the range of legalities to change the laws) for the well being of the people.

    Sorry the off topic.
    As a roleplayer I just want to point out its so, so past time we got rid of alignments, they are a caricature of good roleplaying. :)
    Nah, they are great. Even better when used with point system (0 to 100). Just people misunderstadns them... The same way people misunderstands Nature and Demeanor in Storyteller.

    I always felt the classic alignments were a fun tool to labeling how people are in real life.

    President Trump....Lawful Evil?

    ;)
    eNeutral-evil, actually. Someone that is selfish and does not care much about order or chaos, just want to make things the way he wants to.

    I have a really hard time finding the art style, cartoony, and rat race interesting and appealing. Yet, we rvr'ers don't get many options these days so I'm still looking forward to giving this a go.
    Well, that's a bummer because I'm the other way around: Gigantic, for example, holds a special place in my heart and I would kill for a MMORPG following that art style.

    Yesterdat I watched some episodes of Disenchantment and I would love to play a RPG following that art style (look the background art! It's so gorgeous!) - And again, I would kill for a MMORPG following that style and not another one realistic mucle men with sword that takes itself serious and somewhat needs to validate the low self-steem of the one handling the avatar.

  • UEC Cap Removed, Is The Game Going Full Out Pay To Win?

    So, let me get this straight. Games like EvE where you can inject alien resources and trade for ingame currency which are used to buy powerfull gear and ships are not p2w even when the most problematic thing you'll face is just losing what you get.

    But SC where someone can actually steal and use the thing you bought with an alien recource injection is p2w.

    Ok then.

  • Full Gameplay Demo Replay of 'E3 Best Action Game Winner' - Anthem Videos - MMORPG.com

    The gameplay is generic e looks boring. The gameplay videos kills any excitement in me instead of sparking some interest.
