Biggest EVE Online scam ever recorded nets over a trillion ISK {Massively}

Aug 13th 2011 12:20AM @cforciea Wow so true. I've been playing the game for like 5 years and I really never thought of it that way.

One correction though -

For white collar crime like this I think people actually get less than a year IRL ;-)

Apr 8th 2011 12:43AM I should maybe also state -

The signature doesn't look *identical* to the other one I've seen online ... just close enough that I'm confident it is at least her signature, even if it's not from pen ...

(honestly, at first I wasn't sure if it was a signature or someone had scribbled in the book ... why are people's signatures so strange? Mine is a fairly legible version of my name, but, still unique enough to be difficult to reproduce without tracing ...)

Looks legit to me ... blue ink ... sig matches what I've seen online for other 'autographed' copies ... let's see about the impression thing ...

*wipes his hands as he's been eating heavily seasoned peanuts*

...

This isn't working ... *steps away to wash his hands* ...


Ok ...

:-(

I do not see or feel a page depression of any sort ... while I am familiar with pens that could produce this still, I am less optimistic now :-/

Apr 7th 2011 11:01PM I just picked up the last copy of The Shattering on the shelf at my local bookstore, and to my amazement, it's autographed! Were all the hardcover copies autographed or something? Or did I just somehow luckily stumble into one of the first 2500 (or however many) copies printed or something? I can't find any answers online and I'd really like to know as I'm considering returning it to order from somewhere else for substantially less ...


Thanks!

The Daily Grind: Would you play a motion sensor-controlled MMO? {Massively}

Mar 3rd 2011 1:44PM That was supposed to be a reply to PaterFrog ... I think I did it wrong ... sorry, I fail at internetz :(

The Daily Grind: Would you play a motion sensor-controlled MMO? {Massively}

Mar 3rd 2011 1:42PM Hrm, yeah, that would be pretty error-free and neat for sure, but "Command! Fireball!" or even "Fireball!" might still be slower than a keypress, especially with good keybindings :-)

You've given me an interesting idea though :-) ... despite having a 15 button mouse and 'proper' PvP keybinds on my keyboard, I still have to click some stuff ... surely voice is quicker than that, and I think with the stuff built into Windows you can already do pretty decent voice commanding ...

*pictures his wife asking with a confused look "Why do you keep yelling TRINKET!! at your computer?!"*

=D

The Daily Grind: Would you play a motion sensor-controlled MMO? {Massively}

Mar 3rd 2011 10:51AM The plain and simple fact it - MMOs are conducive to extremely long play sessions and interfaces like this are not. Beyond that, games made for platforms like this have an extreme amount of room for error - they're about fun, not about precision. When it came to raiding or competitive PvP everyone would be quickly returning to their keyboard and mouse as there is simply no room for error in those environments.

I think the only thing that will replace what we have currently is thought controlled input devices.

Mar 1st 2011 11:31AM I wondered pretty much exactly this in Wintergrasp more than a few times ... when you run south down the path in the middle of the zone the Alliance and Horde NPCs appear to just stand still for a second or so after they're rendered, *then* they start fighting - like they were standing around having coffee and went "Oh crap, here comes a player, quick, start fighting!!"
