Profanity filters, homophobic slurs, and Blizzard's shaky relationship with the LGBT community {WoW}

Jan 25th 2012 2:07PM I noticed this was filtered a long time ago as this is a word I would use. One of the first things I checked in SWTOR was if transsexual was blocked by the filter (yes it is). I hope BioWare follows this example and also unblocks the word.

The Daily Grind: What would you pay for a fancy ride? {Massively}

Jan 8th 2012 11:04AM I always thought of Mounts in games as a badge of achievement. I personally go for mounts that you have to achieve something to obtain or get randomly. Because of this I would not want to ride a mount I had to buy as it has no meaning to me.

The Daily Grind: How frugal are you in F2P games? {Massively}

Dec 28th 2011 11:05AM Well I play DDO so when I spend my money on the game I only buy sale items. Funnily enough I like the subscription option the game has and think that is the best deal for my money in a month. When I feel like really playing the game in a month I pay the sub and have fun. When I am not in the mood or feel I won't play much I can just drop the sub and still have fun in game. I really like this model of f2p.

Even SWTOR's website has a queue! [Updated] {Massively}

Dec 22nd 2011 11:28AM @(Unverified) I think you will find that in the real world things are not that simple. I am not the only person who was confused by the process and is now waiting in line to fix it. Beyond SWTOR being a game it is a business and due to how it designed it's system it

Operations management is about streamlining your process to work for you customers. The breakdown that occurred with me and many other customers is called 'static'. This is the difference between what the company was trying to say and what I actually heard. In designing the process they could have done many things to have prevented this breakdown such as a reminder on the activation page itself that would pop up or automatically direct you to the next step.

Proper process design is an integral part of business planning.

Even SWTOR's website has a queue! [Updated] {Massively}

Dec 22nd 2011 11:00AM This is so frustrating as I already put in my game code but I still can't play. It gave me no notice when I did so that I had to do more! BioWare dropped the ball on this and much of the traffic could have been avoided if they had set things up properly.

The Daily Grind: Will SWTOR succeed in Asia? {Massively}

Dec 19th 2011 10:28PM I think that the main barrier to entry for this game is the hardware requirements. The mainstream hardware lvl is not a high as it is in some other countries. You could also argue that the mainstream hardware lvl is barely at a place it is useable in the American/European Market! Most people do not have high level graphics cards or dedicated gaming rigs.

The game has some issues when played with only the minimum system requirements and you need a decent graphic card to get it to play smoothly.

The Daily Grind: What game do you think never looks good in screenshots? {Massively}

Dec 11th 2011 2:10PM @avaloner I have to agree that the screen shots of GW2 just don't look that great. I have seen some videos of actual game play and it looks really cool, but something just doesn't look right when it is a still shot of the game.

The Daily Grind: What game do you think never looks good in screenshots? {Massively}

Dec 11th 2011 2:08PM @alzeer I have to agree that DDO just loses something when you see it in screen shots. I am glad that I tried it out once it went free to play in spite of the screen caps. You just can't capture the fun of a game and the action it give in a screen shot.

The Perfect Ten: Ways to prepare for the coming of SWTOR {Massively}

Nov 24th 2011 6:15PM I reloaded KOTOR 2 and tried to play it like suggested but got bored quickly. It shows it's age badly. I only played 10 minutes and already had to stop. If anything trying to play KOTOR would have dampened my enthusiasm for the launch of SWTOR if I had not been in the beta! I guess some games just don't age well.

The Daily Grind: What's the most you'd spend on a virtual item? {Massively}

Nov 24th 2011 2:33PM I have never paid money for a game shop item directly, but DDO does give turbine points out every month that you are a paid subscriber. During the sale before patch 11 came out they offered 1000 points points per month and 3 months subscription for 30 dollars. I decided to try out the subscription and because I had the points anyway I got the Artificer class to play with which is the most expensive (and only) thing I have gotten in a cash shop. Not sure if that counts since I didn't pay for the points.
