World of Warcraft Mega Bloks season 1 revealed {WoW}

Mar 31st 2012 1:09AM I saw the artwork with that orc on a rocket mount and thought it said Barrens Chat.

Kissing cousins: SWTOR's legacy system explained {Massively}

Mar 30th 2012 7:49PM @Dunraven
The issue here isn't that there has never in the history of (extended) Star Wars been a force-using bounty hunter (or some other non-Jedi/Sith), but rather it a rare thing. But in the context this game, they are going to be EVERYWHERE. Pretty much half the game population is a Jedi or Sith. Now the other half will be force-choking people as well.

Personally, I feel pretty blah about the whole Legacy system. I don't care about family trees, race restrictions shouldn't have implemented in the first place, forcing altoholics to 50 defeats the definition of altoholics, and now everyone is a Jedi, in name or otherwise. Patch 1.2 has some really nice features, but the Legacy system isn't one of them for me.

TERA PvP battlegrounds won't be in at launch, delayed until 'late summer' {Massively}

I used to like consoles for that reason. PC games are fine, but sometimes I would get tired of the bugs, patches and upgrades. Consoles work out of the box, everyone playing has exactly the same specs, and the games are polished and ready to go.

Not anymore....

SWTOR devs attempt to balance the Force through nerfs {Massively}

I think you mean "Hate leads to unsubscriptions."

Leave your legacy with Star Wars: The Old Republic's newest dev dispatch video {Massively}

It's funny. I downloaded the new SWTOR patch and started it up, waiting for things to load, etc. So I'm surfing through Massively, the SW music starts up, and I'm thinking "Awesome! New SWTOR patch allows sound in background!"

Nope, lame web video. -_-

Hyperspace Beacon: Gooey GUI {Massively}

The game really needs more bars. With no macro system, and the only way to hotkey spells is through bar keybinds, you quickly run out of slots. For me, 4 bars means normal, shift, control, and alt hotkey bars. In other games, I could have reduced 4 hotkeys into one slot. Currently, you barely have enough room for all your abilities. But once you throw relics, adrenals, and vehicles into the mix, I run out of room.

BioWare: There is another (free TOR weekend trial) {Massively}

Mar 20th 2012 5:09PM @TortoiseCan
Yeah, there's no point in offering weekend trials to previous subscribers because nothing's changed. The exact same circumstances that caused people to unsubscribe will still be there. Patch 1.2 is a big one, and wouldn't be surprised if Bioware offers a trial weekend to everyone then.

This coming weekend trial is a puzzle, tho. They've already put out the 7-day friend recruitment and the previous weekend trial. This just seems rather desperate.

The Daily Grind: Should new expansions include old expansions? {Massively}

Mar 19th 2012 9:12PM It *is* an inane comment. The original question of "should" is just fine. In fact, not only is xBludx trying to be pedantic, but his suggestion of using "do you want" is even worse.

I already have all previous expansions. Whether future expansions come with the previous ones makes no difference to me, so asking what I want is pointless to the topic.

It's already fairly acknowledged that we the consumers want as much stuff possible for the money we fork over. Asking if Blizzard should include old expansions is the appropriate question. Should they do it? If they do, it benefits new and long-time unsubbed users since they can access current content for a modest price, but Blizzard loses out of all those old expansion sales. If they don't, they continue to reap the sales of old expansions, but lose out on new subscriptions of players who can't/won't pay to catch up. And so we can debate which choice benefits everyone as a whole, whether Blizzard would make more money if they included old expansions.

Asking what I want is pointless. Obviously, I want all previous expansions, beta access for future expansions, and a pot of gold. And a pony.

MMO Week in Review: TORsy and iconic {Massively}

Mar 18th 2012 9:41PM @(Unverified)
People skip the Heroic (group) *because* it's too hard to find groups. I would love to do them whenever they pop up, but you all too often wind up finishing everything else and leaving the planet before a group can be put together. I find it's getting a little worse as server population drops some, so the pool of players gets diminished.

Star Wars: The Old Republic answers questions on 1.2 and priorities {Massively}

Mar 18th 2012 8:03AM @Lenn
But see, that's the point right there. You're a casual player and have yet to run out of things to do. The developers are not worried you right now. It's the hardcore players that have already maxed out on levels, done all the quests, and repeating raids and PVP everyday that they are trying to appease, because these are the players that are the ones running out of things to do at endgame.

When you and other casual players start to approach level 50, it'll probably be 3-4 months from now. At which point, Bioware will more than likely have additional casual content in place with patch 1.3 or 1.4 or whatever. But right now, the hardcore issues are the main concern.
