The yearly orgy of good taste and subtle marketing is upon us, so lets keep it all in one place shall we.

I played guildwars a bit before dinner and didn't feel like playing it anymore after.  I'll give it another shot tomorrow though.  And I know it's not finished yet so I cut them some slack.  They gotta let me configure the controls in the full game though or forget it.

Hey Huggin, if you're here...I missed all that difficulty you are having.  I did the first quest like you did, then got killed once on the second quest, said screw this and ran through the portal to the 2nd area where you go on a 4 person mission.  I never even looked at my inventory, seriously.  You're getting all bogged down in that part.  Just skip it and move on.  After failing the 4 man group mission once, we tried it again and completed it.  Only then did I open up the INV/skills windows and get boggled by it because I had picked up some things and wanted to see what they'd do.  That's as far as I played so far.

Eyegore:
Let me get this straight. What you are saying is that you played a role-playing game without paying any attention to role-playing, statistics, skills or inventory?

Guild Wars is lame.  So let it be written.  So let it be done.

Guild Wars is a pretty Diablo minus the Diablo.

Okay, the key problem with Guild Wars is that you need all people in your group to be NOT asshats as there is no way you will ever finish a mission with an asshat. Unfortunately the number of asshats is so big nobody ever finishes a mission.

As long as there is space, I'm going to stare off into it.

It's a wonder no one has ever brought this up for a multiplayer game before.  I should write a letter.

Pherhaps there should be a feedback/rating system for MMORPG players, the way there is for Ebay users.

That certainly doesn't invite griefing.

But it seems to work for Ebay. And with Ebay there's the financial incentive for err... creatively enhancing your feedback score. Of course, you'd need people that monitor the feedback for bullshit, and filter it out.

It works for eBay because there's a real-life transaction of goods and cash involved between the users.  Also, both of them know each others' home address when they make a transaction.

Also, you really expect MMOG Company X to spend money on having someone discipline the user base?

No.

I think we need to revisit an old thread for clarification on how a user-patrolling system might work.  CrapSifter tells me it's right here.

You know, for a moment I was almost sad that I was missing it, but I know that this is probably going to be the worst year of the past 4.  I have a feeling that next year, with the unveiling of several new consoles, it will be better than the last three combined.  Handheld releases just aren't as cool as console releases are.  From what I heard, the 2001 E3 was pretty amazing compared to the following two in terms of insane swag and pole-dancing Jesuses.

I was flipping channels last night, and stopped on G4 for a second where they were showing brief clips of several "killer new titles" and I honestly couldn't tell when they'd switched from one game to the next.  *snore*

No, if it's an original mario game, an original zelda game and they can keep the price of the thing low (150$ is what i heard) - i'll buy it.

This is the first game I ever encountered where it is so clear right of the bat. Not even Enemy Territory was this fast in revealing it's flaws in that respect.

Handhelds are just too damned small.  The screens are so annoying small that I tend to make my perpetual headache even worse by trying to watch it, while my giant man hands can just barely use the controls apparently designed for pre-pubescent Korean girls.  Bah to handhelds, says I.

I remain impressed to this day at Sega's total ignorance and incompetence in addressing the issue of piracy for their console.

Jebus weeping, True Crime II? This convention is an abomination that must be burnt to the ground! Then the ashes will be burnt! Then those subsequent ashes will be further compressed and suspended in an acryllic substance, which will then be hand-carved by Mexican street urchins into amusing phallic renditions. These will also be burned.

There are a few titles there that interest me that I haven't heard about before, but that probably means they'll also be at the next 2-3 E3s, so... no rush.

I found True Crime to be truly dull and uninspired.  It wasn't horribly flawed or bad or anything, but it certainly wasn't anything special.  I look at it as a sort of distilled blehness....mediocrity in its purest form, so to speak.
