@trjp "WoW servers serve actual game content - content which is VERY much covered by a range of laws on ownership and rights-to-use"

Sorry but this is completely and absolutely wrong. ALL of the game content - from textures, 3D models, and sound assets to the written quest text and animations etc is included on the Discs that people purchased and is stored locally in the players Wow installation folder.

The Server code references the names of the assets and communicates with the client in reference to them, but it is an emulation of blizzards own server code and therefore original work.

If you look on reddit at the wowservers sub, you'll see constant sniping and bickering about who's server more closely resembles what people call 'blizz-like'. This is because people are doing their best to emulate how things worked back in the day.

Bungie president out less than a week after Destiny 2's reported delay

actionfitz

3 years ago

@Sicho World of Tanks is not an MMO... lets be real. I've played it. You don't free roam and meet other players and party up to tackle objectives.

Online games don't have to be MMOs to be good games. I enjoyed World of tanks. But its a Multiplayer Online Arena where people match-make and compete with some progression added in.

Even Bungie and Activision weren't keen on the MMO label when the game was being marketed.

It's ok to not fit into any one particular niche or genre, but its a handy way to know what to expect from a game.

It's like if some called Outlast an FPS, purely because it's a first person perspective game... (but with no shooting).

@Sicho MMORPG stands for 'massively multiplayer online role playing game'.

This often gets shortened to MMO. Destiny is multiplayer and it's online, but that's it.

It's a co-operative online shooter.

It only has a world you share with 'millions of other players' in the same sense Diablo 3 does. Millions playing the game at the same time that you will never meet unless you matchmake. By your reasoning, Diablo 3 would be an MMO.

Diablo 3 - Millions of players. Vertical progression. Limited of number of players in combat areas: Non-massive, but multi-player Online rpg.

League of Legends - Millions of players. Horizontal progression. Limited numbers of players in combat areas: Multi-player Online Battle Arena.

World of Warcraft - Millions of Players. Vertical Progression. Near unlimited numbers of players allowed in commons, or combat areas: MMORPG

@Sicho It's not an MMO... seriously it's not even close.

It's a fun multiplayer shooter with limited co-op and Versus modes. It's not a shit game by any means, though it is a disappointment in terms of what it was pitched to be.

It's quite a fun few hours spent shooting aliens, if a bit nonsensical story-wise.

Does Scholar of the First Sin make Dark Souls 2 worth returning to?

"This feels like a game designed to be played with someone always by your side, a shift in focus that fundamentally changes your approach to Drangleic. "

A shame since one of their accountants made the decision to split the playerbase in half in order to milk more cash from people who paid for the game (twice in my case - xbox and PC) and the DLC (i bought the PC season pass). I enjoyed the game. But not buy it 3 times and all the DLC type of enjoyed...

I'll stick to Bloodborne on my PS4. From's shitty PC ports / GOTY editions that cant play with standard versions are dead to me.

@Solid_Snake_Eater Well from the looks of things it's going to be a great game, quality wise - though the Souls series have proved to be quite divisive with people's opinions, in that you either love or hate them. I love them btw and the general critical consensus (reviews etc) is extremely positive.

Maybe watch some twitch streams or 'lets plays' on youtube of Dark/Demons souls, though a hands on would be better. That said, this is a new series and they are changing things up a fair bit, so if you are still not sold, you could always wait for the reviews.

This is the first game i've preordered in quite awhile now - The first since Alien Colonial Marines :(

@Uberheertje You must have a PC monitor somewhere, i'd plug the PS4 into that until you can justify a TV upgrade... Playing a game like this on a standard def TV just sounds plain wrong.
