Jan 12th 2012 7:35PM The most curious and disappointing part of this (to me) is that the servers they chose include some that are named for some of the coolest characters in Rift lore.
Jan 3rd 2012 6:55PM While I play the game and like it, I am by no means a fanboy. I have a lot of big gripes about some of the bugs that I reported months ago in beta that still bother me every day. I am also angry about some of the decisions they made. No color match because it makes gear choices seem fewer? Lame.
This article seems rediculous to me. The headline is a troll by the author, and I am surprised Jeff isn't in the comments trolling in person already. Management must have got a leash on him after the last time he embarrassed them.
Dec 9th 2011 1:52AM Yeah, APB has a lot of problems, but I have had some great fun in that game. My favorite memory was getting my first "Kill Them All"
I came around a corner in my car and the entire crim team was there waiting for us. I got the first guy with the car, Jumped out and managed to gun down 2 more and kill the fourth by blowing up my own car (which he was taking cover behind) with a grenade.
Good times. . .
Aug 27th 2011 8:40PM For $46,000,000 I'm sure they will produce about 75 really horrible games.
Aug 2nd 2011 10:35PM Shadowbane was an awesome game if you had good friends to play with.
My fondest memory was sneaking into another clan's city and backstabbing the clan leader right in front of his own tree. Close your gates quickly.
My funniest memory was negotiating with a guy who wanted me to stop killing him while he was farming. I convinced him to log in to my vent server to talk, and actually convinced him to have his girlfriend say something on mic in exchange for his safety.
Wow I was a jerk.
Jun 21st 2011 11:26PM This really was a great article. Thanks for such a fun read.
I think that if some of the ideas these guys had would have went live in this game MMO's might look different then they do today. After all, there were no conventions in the genre at that time. Maybe a game based on such a powerful IP could have created conventions.
Dec 21st 2010 8:57PM The wildlands of Zelata are my favorite part of AOC hands down.
There's so much to do in this huge playfield, and it's visually easy on the eyes.
Dec 17th 2010 11:30PM It's like this dev team is trolling Christianity. Even worse then Satan trolled Jesus during Christ's temptation.
I hope the next battleground is Christian slave vs. Lion in the Colleseum in Rome.
Dec 3rd 2010 2:09AM EQ2X is a way better f2p game.
Nov 26th 2010 11:11PM I really think it has more to do with the attempt alot of big companies are making atm to merge the mmo genre with social networking and the associated games. Look at the Blizzard battle.net fiasco a while back.
I'm willing to bet this is only the first step. With massively a stand-alone site dedicated to MMOs, it would be difficult to justify covering farmville type games on the site, but if they slowly roll massively into joystick as a whole, they might think they can roll the massively readership into that "community" at the same time.
It's tinfoil hat stuff, I know, but it makes alot of sense.
BTW, I cant get the site to work on my blackberry anymore at all? anyone have the new mobile url?
