Created a witch doctor last night and immediately got a notification that I had something in my mailbox.  It was a level 11 sweet legendary item from someone in my friend's list.  Pretty cool.   

Actually, I think it was me.

I sent you a gift the other night - I got the gift drop, had to go into my inventory, select it, and say to ship it to you. Had no idea what it was - but glad you enjoyed it.

So where should you live?  I seem to be geared for Scandinavian countries.  Too bad they are so cold!

A few days ago we had 31 degrees celcius in Denmark, or 87.8 degrees Fahrenheit.

Landmark is pure sandbox, and it will remain mostly that way. Its not an MMO with quests and the like, even though the developers have at some point talked about that.

Basically, what they are doing is asking people to help them create content for EQ Next and help test the editor they use for it as well.

I am no longer going to respond to trolls. I think anyone with an ounce of common sense can see who the true instigator in this thread was. Once again I tried to steer the conversation back to the game, and once again TiLT continues with the attacks. I've tried repeatedly to stop the argument, and he continues to prod and provoke. TiLT, if you wish to continue, then by all means take it to PM. Or better yet, just put me on ignore. Let's continue with the game discussion. - Consider your sage advise taken.

Ah, it was just so sudden that I thought you'd come across some single thing that made the game just not worth playing - especially since you seemed to enjoy the beta's.

My keen powers of observation tell me this discussion is getting way far away from the pros and cons of the Xbox One.  I know some of you feel misunderstood or attacked but rather than trying to get people to understand each other lets just drop it for now and worry about if dropping the kinect will help or hurt the XBone.

what? But thats exactly what people are discussing?

edit: Nevermind - I apparently missed an entire page!

For many companies, its not enough being profitable. In Denmark for instance Maersk (One of the worlds biggest shipping companies) divested itself of a retail chain that was profitable, but just not enough. The energy could be used on other parts that were MORE profitable.

Some companies create synergies though with other parts of their business, and I imagine Xbox does this.

Yeah, I don't see how anyone could take weeks to get to level 10, unless they play in 10 minute spurts every 3 days or so.

I think Soulchilde's sigh might be due to the  forum effect taking.....effect.


Please stop with the stream of words - I cannot abide the babbling! ;-)

Anyways, thanks for the write-up Rittchard, but I am curious about one thing that you write

My biggest complaint with the game thus far is the levelling pace, which is positively glacial.  I thought I was imagining it at first, but it's definitely one of the slowest levelling games I've played in years.  In approx the same amount of time I took a new character from 1 to 70 in Diablo 3, I'm still hanging around level 10 in ESO.  In some respect that's not a horrible thing, but in these early portions of the game it can seem like it takes forever to make an advance.  Now before you tell me I should just relax and enjoy the game, my problem with this is that there is content that is flat out difficult for the recommended level.  I've been killed time and again by bosses that seem to literally have 9 lives, and I'm pretty sure it's not just me having these issues given some of the zone chat I see.  This can become even more frustrating because of the slow level pace; you can't readily just leave a big questline and level up and return.  Again it's the kind of thing I would have hoped had been balanced out during beta.  So the bad news is it takes a lot of time to improve your level, but the good news is you'll hopefully enjoy that time you spent as long as you don't get too frustrate

Why is this an issue at all? Shouldn't you be enjoying the game, and not try to rush towards lvl 50? Also, once you hit lvl 50, there are veteran ranks, so its not like its over there.

I am a bit perplexes and annoyed at the games of today that, like Neverwinter makes the levelling up the prime goal, and not a product of your enjoyment of the game. ESO is very much a game about exploration, and its also very hard at times, something we are not used to these days, but something I enjoy very much. The flexibility is the mark of an extremely ambitious game but it also leads to dangers like people not knowing how to proceed, making builds that makes little sense, and thus, difficulty while levelling.

Anyways, I enjoy the game immensely myself, and see myself playing it for a long, long time, bugs be damned.

Strange that after seeing quite a few people mentioning ESO last week (as technically some of the preorders started on Sunday), nobody is mentioning it this week.

Well, I will, as I'm all set for playing it on Tuesday. Here's to hoping it goes well.

Well, I bought it last week, if that helps.
21  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Elder Scrolls Online on: March 31, 2014, 06:59:50 AM
I reached level 10 last night, after a long days of gaming, and I must say, I'm pleased with my purchase. The game looks simply gorgeous, easily the best looking MMO I've seen. I do wish nights were darker, but thats ALWAYS the case with MMO's and I hope add-ons can rectify some of the stuff like that.
The locations themselves are pretty great as well, and its very interesting to see all the flashbacks, and people interested in lore will find tons of things to delve into. For instance, both the Battle-Born and Graymanes are represented in the early game, which is pretty cool.

I do think they have some issues with storytelling that aren't working as it should , especially in the beginning. As a member of Ebonheart Pact, I have no idea what happened in the early game, or why we won the battle because I was invisible. Very strange.

The PVP seems very interesting, and I LOVE the siege engines. I've only completed the intro, so haven't actually tried it out yet, but I can see liking it a lot already since it seems to be taking a lot from Warhammer Online. I only wish they had collision detection enabled. I also need to figure out a way to quickly enter into larger groups, instead of having to beg with "Please invite" or "plz inv" in chat, which I absolutely hate.

The quests are fun and well done (Aside from those that break, obviously, but haven't had those myself yet, other than one that didn't work quite the first time) and all in all, I really enjoy my stay in Nirn, and want this pesky work to end!

This will also put my opinions to the test of whether ND games' problems with shooter controls is really an issue with input lag and framerate.

I never did play the MP so may be that's what you're referring to...but I dont' recall any issues with the controls or response times whatsoever.

its what half the posts in this very thread is about - some people complain about controls, other say its on purpose it works the way it does.

Our review is on the front page.   smile

In short, play it like a Thief game and you'll enjoy it.  Play it like a shooter and a.) you are an idiot and b.) you aren't going to enjoy it.    Almost every negative review I read prefaced their opinion with "I'm more of a first person shooter guy" or "I've played all of the Call of Duty games" (well good for you, junior).   I also get the feeling that some of these guys didn't play past the first two levels. 

Nice review - you did forget that there is no jumping anymore though. Also - how big does the levels feel? Are they straight corridors with sides or do they feel more like a whole area?

31  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Space combat games? on: February 18, 2014, 03:31:22 PM
No, I mentioned StarPoint Gemini 2, which is a different beast, and one to take note of. Especially due to how everyone who plays it, loved it and the lack of negativity on their forums.

Fine if you don't want to enter beta gaming, but its certainly, the two behemoths aside, the game to watch for, and since it will be out in a few months, its not that long a wait.

Do NOT purchase X:Rebirth...Perhaps in about a year or two it will be good, but currently, after 3 months of patching, it still doesn't work.

Its a great time to be a fan of space games. The genre has totally revitalized, not the least of which is due to mega heavy hitters like Elite: Dangerous and Star Citizen. I'd point out StarPoint Gemini 2, which is currently in Early Access on Steam, and is one of the finest games I've seen in a long time. Its also one of the VERY few games whose steam forums are filled with happy people, and the developers answering questions all the time.

Well, I have to take your word for that, but I could have sworn one of the things that was touted early in this generations development 60FPS was a big seller.

Jeremy Conrad from IGN tweeted this:

1080p/30 PS4
900p/30 XB1

Why are games still 30 fps? Also, it seems that Xbox One is less powerful, no matter what the magic power of the cloud does? Oh well., its not like its even possible to get one for me yet, and no word on if ever.

The newest 17 minute trailer does look slightly more interesting though!

Your credit card info is safe. Kickstarter doesn't handle that part, instead leaving it to Amazon. Anyone who might have gained access to your account shouldn't be able to pledge for anything. You should be worried about your password though. They used SHA-1 encryption, which I believe was already compromised before this. They changed the encryption type afterwards, so at least things should be better now.

Thats not strictly true - Kickstarters that aren't based in the US are not handled by Amazon, but by Kickstarter itself. That means, that kickstarter has partial records of credit cards stored.

Either GT has the worst search engine in the history of search engines, or we don't have a thread for this show.

Season 2 just aired a few days ago on Netflix, this being a Netflix exclusive. The GF and I just watched the first episode of season 2, and mother of god...this show is good!

If you haven't seen it, please watch it. DAMN that man gives me the chills in some of his monologues.
