Football Manager stopped being fun a long time ago when making money became more important than making the game itself - mirroring modern day football itself.

Pre-NGE, Star Wars Galaxies was fab. I loved the sandbox feel to this game, rather than having your hand held. The social aspect was great, I spent many evenings just chatting outside Mos Eisley about anything and everything, the best you get is Goldshire and a bit of bitch-chat.

Have traditional MMOs had their time?

vijay_UK

It's not just developers, but players also need to look at themselves. Too many want to level asap and not spend enough time enjoying the environments creased or the lore that comes part of the game. Mmo's are too quantified with too much unnecessary number crunching- just enjoy the game.

Blizzard considering in-game micro-transactions for World of Warcraft

vijay_UK

Blizzard also know the remaining players are hooked and have not only invested a lot of time in the game but have perhaps an emotional attachment to the game that makes it hard to quit permanently. I would say don't bite that hand that feeds you

I wonder if Blizzard would ever consider dropping the subs fee a little each month - it is the loyal fans who are keeping the game going, yet it is them that Blizzard are profiting from?

I'm sure people will argue, 'well, who else are they going to make the cash from?'.

But I would say, after all these years, why not reward loyal WOW players by knocking down the subs fee by a few quid, and the game can carry on. Also, it might just drag some players back in.

And dump in-game micro-transactions, there is nothing more annoying than to have to pay a subs and then pay even further for other crap.

I always felt the carrot that was Diablo III in exchange for a years subs with WOW cheapened Diablo III - and WOW also in that it was a desperate measure to get a surge in revenue. Not the best strategy imo, for either game.

Rambo game finally shows off Rambo

vijay_UK

5 years ago

Imo Rambo III is a highly under-rated film although it is generally sniffed at when compared to the other two classics. However, at the end, Rambo and Trautman say goodbye to their mujahideen friends with He Ain't Heavy He's My Brother (it wasn't a duet, the song was in the background). This elevated Rambo III into something special. As for the game, I have high hopes after the disappointments of Star Trek and Aliens: CM. Please please make Rambo good.

This is the worst pc gaming experience of my life. I have played many pc games like a lot of people here, but SimCity just sucks because I can never get a connection to their servers and therefore totally kills the game. I actually can do nothing with the game, it's just sitting on my desktop taking up hard drive space. And I have no interest in getting a shit game for free, just want this game to work as I paid for it.

'Didn't he just inadvertently create a meta-game where every hacker must now test their mettle against Sony?'.

Excellent point. But sometimes you need to go medieval. Just to let these cheats know that it won't be an easy ride and very possibly a waste of their time.

It is that what needs to be highlighted - not only will accounts be banned, but it can ultimately be a precious waste of time.

F2P SWTOR retroactively rewards old players, slows newcomers' XP gain

vijay_UK

6 years ago

Look, some people here are missing the point of F2P MMOs. These companies don't really want you to play the game for nothing; they want you to try a subs-based MMO, and hopefully like it enough to pay for it as a lot of money went into the development of such games.

I might be wrong, but the people who are moaning about the restrictions are the ones who want to download and play SWTOR for nothing, level to lvl50 and then start on another character. So, basically playing the game for free. If that's the case, and you want to enter a Star Wars universe and play for free, then don't moan about the restrictions.

You can easily go get SWKOTOR, go play it and see only NPCs wandering about and waiting to be clicked on.

Football Manager 2013 review

vijay_UK

6 years ago

I got stung for 30 for buying last years edition, played for a bit and gave up. Too much to do, far too much just to play one match.

The best thing for those who are unsure is simply d/load the demo which gives you 6 months for your team of choice. If you reach the 6 months (hold onto the save file*, it's not on Steam Cloud as far as I know) and still are unsure, try another team.

If you like it and want to carry on, buy it. Even though I didn't play FM2012 for my reason, I can't complain as the demo was there for me to try. The option is there to try before you buy, something that not all games come with hence the waste of dosh in Steam Sales and such.

*Your FM2013 saved file from the demo (Beta) can be carried forward if you buy the full edition so you don't have to start again.
