A little strange that after releasing the original game, and then Game of the Year, and then almost immediately after Gold... they're still going to put out more content. Is Civ V: Platinum going to be due out at Christmas?

Though in the middle of writing that, it occurs to me that Dawn of War kind of did something similar. They did vanilla, GotY, Gold, Platinum, and Complete, as well as individual expansion SKUs. Granted, that was largely before the digital era of PC games.

Okay... Etrian Odyssey IV is hard... I just got killed in the first dungeon. Fought this "tough" baddie (or so the game tells me) thinking that since I'm on Casual that it wouldn't be that bad.

Yeah, let's just say game said "ha!" and butchered me without mercy. :(

EA: DRM is a failed dead-end strategy

http://www.gamespot.com/events/gdc-2013/story.html?sid=6406094

Quote
Digital rights management (DRM) is a broken system, EA Labels president Frank Gibeau told GamesIndustry International this week at the Game Developers Conference.

"DRM is a failed, dead-end strategy; it's not a viable strategy for the gaming business," Gibeau said.

The EA executive's comments came in response to a question about whether or not SimCity's always-online mandate was actually a form of DRM. Gibeau insisted this is not the case.

"That's not the reality; I was involved in all the meetings. DRM was never even brought up once," he said. "For the folks who have conspiracy theories about evil suits at EA forcing DRM down the throats of Maxis, that's not the case at all."

SimCity launched earlier this month amid server woes that made the game unplayable for some. The city-building game went on to sell over 1.1 million copies during its first two weeks, marking the best start in franchise history.

He's right. What EA does isn't DRM. At least in the form of what we know as DRM. But this always online bullshit isn't viable either. No one has an always online connection. Mostly, sure. But always? Hell, no.

Hackers have proven that if you change one line of code to remove the 20 minutes online timeout the game plays just fine offline. It's totally DRM.

Well, went ahead and bought it and played for a few hours today.  It's actually pretty fun.  The Xbox server wasn't too crowded, there were enough people that you could get help if you got in trouble, but not too many that you're tripping over people.  Plus loot drops for each player who helped in the kill, so you're not fighting over drops.  The weapons and shooting seem to work well, and the abilities are fun without being out of balance (I picked the cloak, it helps when you get in over your head).  I hope the show is good and sticks around, I'm curious as to how the show affects the game and vice versa,

The games usually aren't, but sometimes in rare cases they are. Sony has left it up to the publishers to decide. I hope they keep that going with the PS4.

Yeah the Ark falls are fun, although that's the only real time it starts to chug.  Hit me up if you ever need some assistance.

I played it for another long stretch yesterday.  I'm really enjoying it.  I did the episode missions that have the characters from the TV show joining you and those were really great.  Then I did the first co-op map you unlock and it was awesome.  I'm through act 1 but have been taking my time doing all the side missions and arkfalls I find and completed all the pursuits in that first area before moving on.  If I didn't have to go to work right now I'd probably be playing all day...it's hard to put down.  And I haven't had one problem with servers or anything which is great.  The framerate did go to hell once but there were dozens of people and cars riding around doing an Ark Fall and it didn't last long so it's understandable.

Are you still enjoying this? I wasn't interested at first, but after watching a bunch of videos on the PS3 version I'm thinking of diving into it. I've got a bunch of games I want to unload as trade-in's so I can probably get it for free.

Yeah I play it whenever I can (which is less than I like).  To be honest, there are a few drawbacks.  Textures and graphics overall are a bit muddy, esp. on the 360.  Quests are mainly limited to "go here, collect this/kill this".  The random instances that pop up have a tendency to pop up where you least want them to (right in the middle of a quest area, for instance).  The enemy selection is a bit limited and enemy AI leaves something to be desired.   The weapons so far haven't dramatically improved over the stuff I could get from the beginning (as a matter of fact, I still use an assault rifle I found early in my game).  That being said, I still like it a LOT.  Arkfalls are still fun, it's quite a sight when you have 40 players blasting away at a 100 foot tall bug.  Weapons selection is pretty varied (there's like a dozen different classes of weapons, and each weapon has different characteristics, like a dumbed down Borderlands system).  Mainly what I like is that for a MMPOG, you don't HAVE to team up if you don't want to.  I don't really co-op, but if I run in to someone else doing the same quest I am, we can both do it together as an impromptu team up and reap the benefits.  The enemies will get more HPs, but the number of baddies doesn't seem to change, and loot drops for each person, so you don't have to fight over that rare gun that may have dropped off of a kill.  The starting powers are still good to use and don't seem gimmicky (I'm still using Cloak, which makes you invisible and instantly recharges your shield).  All in all, when combined with the promised DLC (I sprung for the season pass, they are guaranteeing at least 5 [I think] DLCs) it should be able to provide entertainment for quite a while, even if the show flops.

Sounds like the new Star Trek video game is off to a roaring start. In addition to being buggy apparently, online co-op in the PC version didn't work (don't know if it does yet) when the game launched. The Steam forums were full of people asking if anyone else got it to work, and it was broken for everyone, except one guy who said that it worked fine for him and 'the game uses Steam servers.' Seems like an odd ending comment, and then someone noticed that the guy had over 100 hours of playtime in a game that came out Tuesday, and unlocked achievements back in January. Oh hi developer! Even better using his Steam info they found his LinkedIn profile and the guy is the senior producer on the game. Then just to keep the fun rolling the official twitter account acknowledges there are problems, but continually states that the problems affect only a small fraction of users, despite the fact no one not associated with the game has been able to get the online co-op working yet. The twitter also tweeted a link to the Metacritic page saying users were chiming in and you should to, at a time when there were 4 reviews, all high scores, and clearly posted by the company.

Quote
Charles Schmidt (the genius mind behind the Keyboard Cat meme), and Christopher Orlando Torres (the wizard who gave birth to the Nyan Cat meme) are both suing developer 5th Cell and publisher Warner Bros. for including animated versions of the cats in various Scribblenauts games. Yes, this is a real life lawsuit.

Quote
Both creators have registered copyrights for their kitty creation and have pending trademark applications. Their attorneys allege that since the first Scribblenauts entry in 2009, the game's developers have been using the name and image of both Keyboard Cat and Nyan cat to promote the games.

Quote
They may run into some trouble when the case goes to trial, however, considering the first game was released in 2009, and neither copyright was registered until 2010.

I must have missed all of those Nyan Cat and Keyboard Cat commercials promoting the game.

Didn't think this was worth a new thread, but anyone play any MMO games? If so, what do you play? I'm not asking what your name is, but just wondering what you play if anything. I was playing mostly free to play games like Star Trek Online, Detective Comics Universe Online, Guild Wars 2 and what I tried Sunday (when I finally got some free time), Neverwinter.

All of them aren't bad games. Sure, they aren't going to blow you away, but they are at least are fun. Unless you hit that certain wall and then it becomes a chore.

I only play MMO's that I can play without needing to interact with other people. I played Star Trek online for about a year. Had fun with it, but pretty much maxed out and lost interest. It was the best for being a loner though since it's all about instancing and scaling to party size. I tried Old Republic but it didn't hold my interest long. I enjoyed Final Fantasy XIV, I'm hoping they hurry up and relaunch soon.

With Old Repulic though, isn't a lot of stuff that you'd normally get in other MMOs hidden behind the pay wall?

I only play MMO's that I can play without needing to interact with other people. I played Star Trek online for about a year. Had fun with it, but pretty much maxed out and lost interest. It was the best for being a loner though since it's all about instancing and scaling to party size. I tried Old Republic but it didn't hold my interest long. I enjoyed Final Fantasy XIV, I'm hoping they hurry up and relaunch soon.
Yeah, that's what I like about STO. It scales to however many people unless its an STF (raid). So if I don't have someone to help me, you can. I'm interested in FFXIV's relaunch because the relaunch actually looks like the game that I was originally promised in the original beta. Which would be nice.

BTW, Smues, if you liked the STO content for scaling purposes, and want something to hold you off fantasy wise, the same can be said for Neverwinter. It does the same thing (since its also made by Cryptic, makes sense).

Re: SWTOR - it's mostly raids and whatnot that are capped by the pay level. Everything else is free. The entire "single player" story mode is free, for each class, too. ;)
You should probably put your bandit hat on now.

Also get soundtracks as well. Sweet! I may actually need to get that. ...if I wasn't piss poor broke. :(

I've read there's no licenced tracks in the soundtrack packages. Here's what's in the Brutal Legend ZIP file. (FLAC is also available.)

Is there a Final Fantasy equivalent to this fansite?

Hrmm... I was hoping a forum that was a little less dead. I'll give the links a look, thanks.
