I experienced the same thing about a month back, when I initially gave the trial a play (nice game, and the trial zones were comparatively well populated), then picked up a cheap box copy and moved from a lively game to a ghost-town. The first non-starter zone I visited had, for a good part of the time I was there, no other players in that zone.

I cancelled my sub after only a week and left feedback that the game, as it stood, wasn't worth a subscription with its current population levels.

You say that like humanity has demonstrated much in the way of sanity lately... (Sure, there may be the occasional sane person, but as a group people have seldom been known for their firm grasp on reality)

And don't think the rights-holders won't try brain scanners, especially if they can manipulate the public into accepting it as a fair and reasonable way to enable them to protect their monopolies.

Submission + - Sam Raimi to direct World of Warcraft movie (

Decado writes: Blizzard have just announced that Sam Raimi is to direct the new World of Warcraft movie.

"Raimi, acclaimed director of the blockbuster Spider-Man series, will bring the forces of the Horde and the Alliance to life in epic live-action film. Charles Roven's Atlas Entertainment will produce alongside Raimi's Stars Road Entertaiment."

While it is still early days does this offer hope that someone might finally make a good movie based on a games IP?

Of course, if someone upgraded to Vista today, he/she would find that Vista still leaves far less unused RAM than XP, but that's one of the changes Windows 7 is supposed to be reverting.

Fixed for accuracy. Seriously, what is the issue people have with Vista making use of the memory you have?

People tend to forget that emulation, possibly even if you own copies of the software you're using, can still count as piracy. Just because the platform's obsolete, and the games are no longer sold by your average retailer, doesn't mean the roms are in the public domain.
