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).

Both episodes so far have been really enjoyable. I didn't think they had any dull moments at all, but then again, I'm not expecting action at every point.

Daehawk, I recommend actually reading up on what that entails for the game before drawing the conclusion that "Free to Play" means "Free to play the entire game".

On the other hand, are we sure that these cards are going to be valid once F2P hits? I seem to recall reading something about this. VIP memberships may not end up being compatible with these cards for all we know.

I ran across this Windows command line trick.

cipher /W:C:\Path\To\Folder

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.

I know code can be small, but I personally believe there's more to this than 12 megs of space to make it all happen.  New co-op mode available,

Code. Takes no space worth mentioning.

the net coding used, etc...  

Still code. You'd need to code a pretty damn huge and complex game to pass 12 MB in compiled code, FYI.

Quote
I have a problem when a company touts "Free DLC!  We're giving you more content for no extra cost!" and then it's already programmed and on the disc.  

Voiceovers, music and art may already be on the disc. That has nothing to do with programming. Code is small and easily distributable.

Quote
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.

Resident Evil: Revelations is the new RE-game coming out for the 3DS. A trailer was just released on GameTrailers, so I thought it would be a good idea to start a topic about the game.

If these graphics are actually in-game, I think the 3DS is going to rock hard. And a DS game with voiceovers and cinematics? Wow, I can't wait! smile

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.

5414  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo's 3D House of DS on: June 22, 2010, 06:29:51 AM
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).

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

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.

It seems now to be shaping up like a pretty intriguing, small-squad (3-person teams) tactical shooter though I remain unconvinced the game really needed the XCOM name attached to it.

I would think the question isn't whether or not it needed the X-Com name, but whether or not it deserved it. Time will tell.

From what I've been told, secure shredding of files on SSDs is a waste of time. Unlike on a regular HD, deleting a file on an SSD leaves it permanently removed.

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.

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

It looks like some of you are using the changes in the movies to justify the use of a human wizard in this game. These are changes of two widely different magnitudes. The movies mostly made changes to the plotting, such as which character was where at what time, or replacing something that would be confusing in the movie with something else (the Rangers were replaced with elves). When it made up new stuff it was all within the realm of the LOTR lore, such as the big bad Uruk-hai in Fellowship of the Ring. Adding a spellcaster isn't a minor change. In fact, it completely destroys one of the core concepts of the setting and the entire ending of the books. Humans are supposed to be non-magical, and magic is leaving the world. Elves on the other hand are magical beings, making it easier to justify placing a spellcaster among them, yet that's not what I think they did here. Even if they did, there are no examples of such elves in the books, nor are there hints that there could be anyone like that.

I've got one question: 2027? Seriously? The sci-fi vistas in this game are supposed to be 17 years into the future? Uhm... I guess I should file this game under "fantasy". Not that it affects the gameplay in any way, but it does reduce immersion by a huge factor, at least for me.

I thought the lightsaber combat references were funny back when the Wii was new, and I think they're funny now. I simply can't see any way in which lightsaber combat can be done with this kind of technology without making the whole thing seem completely stupid. Few of us can fence in the first place, and the Star Wars battles have always been really fast-paced (perhaps with the exception of the battle between Vader and Obi-Wan in Episode 4). Being able to wave a lightsaber around is one thing. Being able to actually fight with it is another. I simply don't think it can be done in a satisfying way.


None of these games are meant to be a lightsaber simulator, though.  They are meant to be a fun experience that makes you feel like you're weilding a lightsaber.  That should not be as hard to do.

Doesn't matter. There's no way they can even evoke the feeling of wielding a lightsaber with this tech. You'll just end up looking clumsy while you try to translate your movements to your avatar, and you'll get confused when your avatar's weapon meets resistance which you don't, leading to you being out of sync.

It's never going to work like you imagine in your dreams. This is the big failing of these control systems. Everyone seems to want a swordfighting game, but the fact that we still haven't seen anything halfway decent on that front should be a big hint in itself. The Kinetic doesn't do anything with swords that the Wii couldn't do, so I don't see why you're expecting things to change now.



Post of the fucking MILLENNIUM! Tilt, you sir are 100% correct. Listen to this man people, he just explained what I have been feeling and trying to say, since 2006. It isn't that motion control is necessarily a bad idea, it just doesn't have the correct feel and sensation, and likely won't for many, many years.

That's not really what I'm saying. It works well for certain things like gold and bowling, but less well for more unpredictable actions where your avatar can't be in full control of his movement (such as when hitting the opponent's blade or armor, or even a wall, in a swordfight).

Release date info

Quote
A senior source close to Nintendo has claimed that 3DS will be available worldwide "by early next year" at the latest, with a 2010 launch in at least one territory "likely".

Nintendo conspicuously avoided detailing launch plans for its 3D handheld during Tuesday's E3 conference, where the system was unveiled.

Speaking to Eurogamer after the event, a Nintendo UK spokesperson confirmed that the company had no announcement to make on launch date or price at present.

But our source revealed that a holiday 2010 release is being worked towards on a global level, with a chance the system could slip into early 2011.

The console, which produces 3D visuals without the need for specialised eyewear, has been met with widespread acclaim, and its E3 debut is backed by a wealth of demo content produced both in-house and from key third-party partners, including playable games, interactive videos, 3D movie samples and the ability to take 3D photos.

All those demo models!  I thought they were closer.

I'll happily throw my European friends under the bus if Holiday 2010 = America.

I'm expecting Japan will get the majority of them, though.

I don't think you have to worry about us Europeans. We always get game hardware last for some reason.

Few of us can fence in the first place, and the Star Wars battles have always been really fast-paced (perhaps with the exception of the battle between Vader and Obi-Wan in Episode 4). Being able to wave a lightsaber around is one thing. Being able to actually fight with it is another. I simply don't think it can be done in a satisfying way.

Those grinning tigers are freaking me out. I can imagine children getting frightened by them.

I can't imagine hobbits without their gayness for each other.  Dreamy stares into each others eyes as they profess their adoration for one another is just part of the gig.  That's why this game needs to focus on nothing but hobbits, a party of free loving hobits fighting evil together.  It's a proven formula for success.  If 300 brotherly Spartans can stop 10,000, imagine what a party of 6 hobbits could do?  Forget lore butchering human wizards, I want to see 6 hobbits shield to shield, holding hands, singing songs and kicking evil's ass all over Middle Earth. 
Agreed.  But why 6 hobbits?  I don't see that number in the books.

It's Frodo, Sam, Merry and Pippin, plus a wizard hobbit and a cleric hobbit that were vaguely alluded to in the books if you squint and turn your head a little and read a different book. Tongue

just to illustrate how puny an average human is compared to fully grown Orks

There's no such thing as a fully grown Ork in the Warhammer universe. They never stop growing. smile

yay, playstation subscription fees.  at least they deem to give you full games to play while you subscribe, and they don't try to charge us $8 a month to start.

They gotta find some way to pay for this Move bullshit, so the easiest way is to give us the big dick and match Microsoft at $49.99 for use. They just took one of the pluses (free online) away.

No they didn't. It's still free.

A recent survey of brand recognition showed that a larger percentage of PS3 owners were aware of the Move than 360 owners who were aware of Natal. The number was slightly above 40% for the Move, I think.

Do you have a link?  I remember reading about it but I remember both numbers being ridiculously low.

Sorry, I don't remember where I read it. The numbers were indeed surprisingly low, somewhere around 30-40% for both platforms, with the PS3 edging ahead a little.

Wow, I kinda forgot that Home existed.

So has 96% of PS3 users. smile
