4881  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Champions Online (Cryptic's new MMO) on: June 30, 2010, 04:50:03 AM
I created my character at launch and have been leveling him only occasionally, so there might have been changes to the leveling curve. I haven't heard about anything though, and it seems very few quests below max level have been added in patches.

My complaint about lack of quests is the most common complaint about this game from what I can see, so I'm not alone.

There is no "cure", treatment only helps them to not act on their urges.

Actually, it is my understanding that most kinds of pedophilia (if that is what we're talking about) can be cured (and the success rate is high), but it takes many years. Pedophilia isn't really comparable to homosexuality, for example. Most pedophiles are attracted to adults.

Even if the description of the facility is even half true it still remains that these people were tried and sentenced and served their time as determined by jury or judge but are then denied their freedom.

I do not doubt that their crimes were severe but if they are so severe then the sentence of the court should be the mechanism to deprive them of their freedom not some administrative trick.

If they can do this to them they can come with other "tricks" as they define other types of undesirables.

Bingo!

Even if the description corruptrelic came up with is true (which I doubt), it doesn't bother me too much. These people have already been punished and have served their time. The idea behind these rehabilitation centers is to make these people safe to release into the general society. Their freedom is taken away from them during this time (I'm continually amazed at how little value people put on freedom when discussions about prisons come up. Freedom is a basic human right, and losing it is a major blow to just about anyone), and giving them some degree of "luxury" during their rehabilitation hardly compensates.

Don't forget that when the treatment is over and the (now cured) sex offenders are released back into society, they will be able to become productive and contribute to society at large (if nothing else, by paying taxes). This way they end up paying back the costs of the treatment in a concrete way.

Don't let the idea of sex offenders having some comfort during their treatment cloud your judgment. I'd be willing to bet that if there was a possibility for them to be instantly cured and released (without having to be neutered or anything like that), every one of them would take it instead of spending more time in treatment.

The game is fun, but its main problem (which I'm amazed they haven't fixed yet) is that you have to do every single quest available to level up. If you miss any (which is easy to do if you're not looking up quest givers online), you'll have to grind. The game needs double the amount of quests it currently has.

Hmm I haven't run into that yet at level 27.  But I have been pretty diligent in following all quest givers and paths.  If I ever have to grind to level up, then I'd be pissed... I hate grind leveling in MMOs unless I choose to.

Have you played recently, or is your observation from around launch time?

Both. You've seriously reached level 27 without noticing that you have to do every quest available? It got to the point for me where I had to do quests above my level because I had run out of on-level quests, and this was with an internet tool that scanned my quest log to find my missing quests. I even did both the Desert and Canada introductory areas because the basic quests weren't enough to get me ready for Millennium City. I'm level 26 or 27 right now, and according to that guide I've done all quests below my own level so far with only 1-3 exceptions, and I still struggle to stay on-level. That's no way to design a MMORPG.

It should also be easier to set up filters to block porn sites and avoid such sites just by glancing at the url.

This seems like the very reasons that porn sites would not want to use the domain.

Any serious porn site respects these kinds of things. There's plenty of unserious actors in the field, yes, but those are impossible to have any kind of control over anyway. Just because something is porn doesn't immediately mean that whoever runs it wants to promote their material everywhere, no matter what. Anyone who thinks otherwise has a very skewed view of the porn industry.

And who's going to force these sites to move? 

Quote
Even when .xxx is finally approved, new or existing adult sites will not have to use .xxx. Any legislation in the U.S. to compel such a move would likely be struck down by the Supreme Court on free speech grounds, given how the court ruled on a website-labeling provision pushed by the U.S. government in the Clinton administration.

Nobody's going to force anyone to move. Since .xxx is a new domain, good names will be more available there, attracting the sites. If someone already has a .com or .net or .whatever domain, they're probably not going to want to leave it. This change came too late for that. It's probably going to mean that many sites will choose to only have an .xxx name, which means the regular domains will have less porn.
4888  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Who will reserve CeeKay.xxx first? on: June 28, 2010, 08:18:54 PM
This is a good thing, and if anything, I believe it will lead to LESS porn, at least within the regular domains. It should also be easier to set up filters to block porn sites and avoid such sites just by glancing at the url. Considering that more than 100 000 people and/or companies are already in line for purchasing domain names in the .xxx domain, we're going to see a lot of traffic move there pretty quickly.

Shrug, you guys are obviously convinced, so there's no reason to talk about it further.  Only thing I'll say again, is that in every other MMO I've played, when people get hacked a lot of them are also fully convinced that there was no possible way they did anything wrong.  Doesn't mean it's true.

Anyway, since yall hate Blizzard and battle.net because of this, I hope none of you are planning on playing Diablo 3.  Cause it's gonna be the same system.

this is what i said way back when. it's 100% the person's fault. either they choose a weak password, they went to a fishing site whatever.

it's 100% the account holders fault. even if you don't have a current wow account and use bnet get an auth. on your account. that is 99.9% hack proof. if you get hacked using one chances are it's blizzard's fault then.

if you don't use one, you have no one to blame but yourself. no sympathy what so ever. the auth is free for almost every current major phone out there or the price of shipping. blizzard makes no profit off selling them. you pay for shipping.

sorry you guys don't want to hear it. but you got hacked, it's your fault. you can only dipshit proof so much.

What the fuck are you talking about? The authenticater was released YEARS after I stopped playing, and I never logged in during that time. Of course, you were barely coherent in your post, so perhaps you just failed to bring your point across in a readable manner? One can always hope.

Yeah you are, sort of. I wasn't hacked. Blizzard was hacked. There's a HUGE difference between those two.

Ok, so we're just making the assumption that the changed password/account-info was not due to anything on your end.  That may or may not be true... maybe you're right, it's just not something anyone can say with 100% certainty.

In any case though, even if we go along with your scenario, lots of other online companies have gotten hacked too (not just Blizzard).  For every MMO game out there, you can find plenty of players who have gotten their account messed up, that *insist* it was not their fault.  So it's not just Blizzard games where that happens.

Well, if you have any good theories as to how someone could get access to my account that hadn't been used in years, then be my guest. And if you can explain how there was a sudden wave of these reports for WoW, bonus points to you.

Yes, other companies can get hacked, and it occasionally happens. The difference is that every time this has happened to other companies that I've even heard of, these companies promptly issued public statements about the incident and what caused it. Blizzard seems to have only looked at the problem as a chance to sell additional security layers to secure their own systems. Frankly, it pisses me off.

What are all you guys suggesting?  That you know for sure it's a Blizzard inside job?  I find that hard to believe.  I've never been hacked nor any of my friends, and we have all had accounts since launch.  Obviously that's a small sample size, but so are you guys.

The only thing I'm suggesting is that my account has been stolen and that it's not my fault, nor was it stolen through hacking my computer or by observing some kind of transaction between my computer and Blizzard (as I haven't played the game in years).

The only conclusion I can draw from this is that it's Blizzard's fault, and Blizzard's fault alone, that my account is now gone forever. I don't care if this happens with everyone, with 50%, or with just one person. It should NEVER happen, particularly not with a company the size of Blizzard.

What should never happen?  Someone getting hacked in any MMO?  Because no matter how big or small a MMO, some player has gotten hacked in every single online game out there.

Or am I misunderstanding what you're saying?

Yeah you are, sort of. I wasn't hacked. Blizzard was hacked. There's a HUGE difference between those two.

Still I enjoyed the (brief) Godric flashback (I still say I'd love an Eric and Godric prequel series, really seems like they've had the most interesting vampire lives) and shape-shifting/stripping scenes.

I get a bit distracted by Godric's dialect during those scenes. He speaks Swedish occasionally, and while he does an admirable job at it it's still clear he's no Swede.

He isn't supposed to be Swedish, right? I thought he might be Egyptian, although I can't remember for sure.

I thought they were Norwegian?

Edit: Eric is supposed to be Norwegian, but I now realize you are talking about Godric. Turns out the actor is a Dane, which might account for his accent while speaking Swedish.

If they're Norwegian, that would be very surprising, particularly since neither of them has ever mentioned Norway nor spoken Norwegian. They both speak Swedish regularly though.

I haven't really played WoW since the first year after it was launched, but I tried logging into it just to see if I was affected. I can't remember the login details, but I have a very systematic way of dealing with passwords and usernames, and I don't get trojans or keyloggers or anything like that, nor do I open phishing emails.

Still, no matter what combination of usernames and passwords I used, I couldn't log in. Trying to recover my account based on my email address failed as well. At this point it doesn't look like there's any way for me to recover my account, which indicates it has probably been hacked. I really don't care whether I've lost the account or not (I'll never play WoW again), but this is beyond amateurish by Blizzard. Because their systems were hacked into somehow, I'm now subject to 10-15 WoW-related spam emails every day. Thank you Blizzard! I guess it's a good thing I'm no big fan of your games (Diablo excluded).

This one doesn't sound very secure. For one thing it doesn't say what it overwrites the data with. Is it random values (and what randomization algorithm is it using?) or just 1 or 0? Does it overwrite the data just once? A file must be overwritten with truly random values at least 5 times to make it virtually impossible to retrieve. Cipher also doesn't seem to overwrite blank space, which could contain just about any type of data. It's hard to say though as the information shown on that page is limited.

Content that has already been created but is time-locked to look like they're giving you something extra.  It leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

We have no basis upon which to make the claims you're making. Unless they somehow reveal their entire development schedule you'd probably not be satisfied with any DLC unless it's at least several hundred MB in size, and even if the art assets were ready long before the code. You're digging yourself into a hole you'll never be able to leave in a satisfied way.

There is no way six new missions are set up in the game along with all of the new challenges for only 12 megabytes of space.

Why not? I don't know much about this DLC, but does it include new voiceovers? New music? If it does, these things were probably ready way before the code itself, so they could put them on the disc before the game's release even if the missions themselves weren't finished. If not, there's no reason why it shouldn't take up only 12 MB. Code doesn't take up a lot of space, even in the most complex of games.

My prediction is $249 for the bare-bones version, and a bundle version for $299 with a memory card and a game.

Why would they want to have their first failure in years?  To price a handheld the same as a full console - that can play DVDs, music, has facebook, online games, etc. - would be a big failure.  It just wouldn't work. 

I disagree. The sales numbers would be lower, but they'd earn lots more per console sold. They're also in a near monopoly situation for handheld consoles when this thing is released, so it's easier for them to charge a high price.

Watching the latest Pach Attack on GameTrailers, it seems Pachter agrees with me that the price is going to be above $200.

Michael Pachter commented that Nintendo probably realized in hindsight that they sold the Wii too cheap, so don't be surprised if you see the 3DS costing more than the most expensive DS. The 3D screen isn't cheap to produce either, and Nintendo has a policy of not selling hardware at a loss (unlike Sony and Microsoft).

There's a lot of nifty stuff you can do with this device, according to that chart. However, you should keep in mind that there's no way you can use all of those features at once and keep a usable framerate. I'd be surprised if you can even use more than half at the same time.

They have bigger problems than picking the director if they want to get the movies out by then.

Outside of the MGM financing issue, all signs indicate they will be ready to start filming by the end of this year.  Del Toro moved to New Zealand back in 2008; pre-production has been going on since.  That puts the first film in theatres by the end of 2012 or so.

The MGM financing issue is what I'm talking about. If that doesn't get resolved soon, we may not even see a Hobbit movie, at least not for a long while.

One nice thing about the new scalable instances that I started thinking about: If people will be able to do level 65 versions of Carn Dum and Urugarth, it should become easier for newer players to get their class items (few level 65 players will have need of the Putrid Slime of Helchgam for example, except to put up at the AH) at level 50. This should benefit everyone. smile

IIRC putrid slime and other class quest items are no also available as skirmish rewards.

Yeah, but they are very expensive. For about the same amount of skirmish marks you can get a Scroll of Empowerment, which currently sells for 12 gold on my server.

One nice thing about the new scalable instances that I started thinking about: If people will be able to do level 65 versions of Carn Dum and Urugarth, it should become easier for newer players to get their class items (few level 65 players will have need of the Putrid Slime of Helchgam for example, except to put up at the AH) at level 50. This should benefit everyone. smile

Two things I liked from that article: The raids as skirmishes thing is a welcome change. The Rift and Helegrod have become way too low level to be challenging any more unless you go in with a smaller group, and then things get a little unpredictable. Now I can have the opportunity to see Helegrod for myself (never got into any raid groups for it. It requires 24 people!).

The other thing I like is the raid equipment as cosmetics. I've been using two pieces of the Rift captain gear as cosmetics for ages now because they look better than anything else I've found. Being able to get these turned into cosmetic items (either by a direct conversion which I'm not sure will be available, or by just earning them again somehow) will be nice, particularly since that will allow me to put them into the new wardrobe and thus save vault space. smile
