@MisterPGibson the fucking are you on about. Pc and console gaming. One does not preclude the other and only the input device is different.

The barrier is user understanding. But there's already similar stuff on consoles like smite for instance. Overwatch and to an extent all team based games with public matchmaking face issues of player direction and communication

@arcam to be honest - i get the impression that we both agree the ideal solution would be for only one live environment but with suitable security for 'newbie zones' prett ymuch identical to what EVE has.

@arcam Paly your way goes both ways right and in a private session where the gentlemans agreement is 'pve only' purposefully and decietfully gaining access with the intent of intiating pve is griefing in my view. The only part i agree with is the private instances and solo shouldnt impact the open environment. however to get people trading and mining and so on in open there needs to actually be a reasonable crime and punishement syste,m, which doesnt currently exist - thats what drove people to mobius in the first place.

@Oli surprised to ehar you say you don't think the simulation is up there - i tihnk it's actually a lot more communicative than other racers on what the car is doing on a wheel. Are you referring to slides, particularly at the rear just feeling smooth? because everything else is passed through FFB very cleanly imo.

Also will be interested to see why you think it doesn't live up to your comparisons in other ways.

Divinity: Original Sin review

A very fair review i feel. I am _absolutely loving_ the game so far and am still in Cyseal.

It's such a refreshing change to be let off the leash so to speak and be left to figure things out for yourself (even if sometimes some guidance would be welcome), even down to making your own notes on the map.

anyway, i'm off home to find the cats collar, collar the physician and douse some twin flames! :)

This just highlights the insanity that is trademark law. firstly such common words should not be allowed to be trademarked, or if they are a specific context needs to be associated.

this sort of shit is just so detrimental to the image of the side pursuing 'protection' of their mark.

@George-Roper you highlighted an issue in many peoples thinking with EVE skills.

There's actually an advantage to skills not being tied to activity - which is that you can go play the game how you like while the skill trains. there's no worry about wasting time if you aren't actively doing osmething ot raise that number all the time - like in most traditional mmos.

i do agree that once past the initial weeks the skill train times can get insane - when i played a few years ago i got ot capital ship level and some of those took almost a month to complete!

Xbox One reputation system will punish griefers, reward good gamers

shamblemonkee

5 years ago

A good idea if implemented and managed well. Just from current experience there's a lot of room for abusing it though...

pick up a competitive game late, like CoD:BLOPS2 and while you're learning and under levelled you may well earn some negs.

conversely it's always been the way that extremely good players get negged on the accusation of cheating.

Also, how will 'rep bombing' be countered if someone gets all their friends or a community to neg of plus someone?

Finally it also has to work - the current live system seems to do jack.

Back on track: the UK racing scene revival

shamblemonkee

6 years ago

i don't ge the obsession with licensed cars, give me fake brandalikes that i can can smash up, smash apart, etc.. let me do loops, barrel rolls off of jumps - i.e. gremlni racing.

there's so muhch more that can be done - simplification isn't the answer it never has been - simple to pick up , difficult ot master is always the way.

the f1 games have got things like weather, a living track and car right (despite the handling) and it would be great to see more racers learn from this.
