You pretty much nailed it.
I played the beta, and I was not very impressed. If this had come out five or six years ago, I'd be much more excited about it. I played each class, and brought them out of the starting area, but I never really felt like there was any conflict, and it never really kept my attention. The game has some interesting mechanics, but I feel like they attempted to not "be WoW" to the extent that the enjoyment was watered down. Plus, there's the subscription. As it stands, after playing Guild Wars 2, I've seen how the F2P model can work. Sure, I can earn game time by playing, but I can't see myself really playing this enough.
Unfortunately, I wouldn't trust those countries to not put filters indiscriminately on content. The US has many, many faults...as do all nations, but the internet has been successful because of the government's relative lack of regulation. Once it's under international oversight, things could easily get out of hand.
Exactly! I see so many people in my office jump from diet to diet. They never listen to me.
Is it really so hard to just grind the beans and brew it yourself? I do this every morning.
I agree. While I don't feel "compelled" to play it like I did with WoW (probably due to no subscription), I still find myself spending most of my evenings. It's never felt like a chore. I'm still a little surprised that Blizzard would make it so expensive. That's the full price of an expansion! I also don't buy their excuse for preserving player value. With full heirlooms, leveling is fairly trivial.
I agree. It had tremendous issues while being developed, and continues to have issues. I'd take the A-10 over the F-35 in a heartbeat.
Dropping the A-10 in favor (I assume) of drones is completely asinine. It's proven technology that has lasted decades. I would take that over any of today's "cutting edge" jets. It's a damn shame.
Browser-based, like Card Hunter, would have made it great. I tried it in the beta, and it was okay, but it became a bit boring after a while. If it was something I could play on my phone, or play against friends, I would have enjoyed it more.
It's called Torchlight.
Word. My daughter and I are aspies, and I see no reason for a "cure." That being said, the autism spectrum is pretty broad, and anything that could help alleviate the more severe issues associated with it would be tremendously beneficial.
I typically ask friends who own that product, or have used it in the past. If I can't find anyone else, I'll check CNET. Most of their user reviews have been pretty spot on.
Man, my company hasn't had a QA environment that mirrored production in over a decade. I'd like to think that they had something set up, but the few state-run departments I've seen have been sorely lacking.
It's almost a shame it eat it. Almost...
How is this any different than people who do nothing than stare at their phone nearly every minute of the day? If I see some guy wearing Google Glass, I'll totally engage him and talk with him, because it's a great piece of technology. As for the social aspect...it's not a real issue. People willingly give their SSN to overseas customer service reps all the time.
