Good luck with that.

I can get jiggling boobs on the internet for free.  I'm not paying $15/month for it.

NCsoft... those are the jewels of customer loyalty who shut down City of Heroes with almost no notice, right?
 
Yeah, I see myself investing time and money in playing any of THEIR games. Totally.

FTA: The game is considered the only one with enough substance to equal that of Blizzard's Diablo 3, released last month and currently reigning supreme here.

wtf. there's like, NO substance to diablo 3. seriously. you could see the major plot twist of **** betraying the **** and **** being **** all along and then **** is like **** and **** you you **** turtle.

seriously. if diablo3 is their bar for 'depth of content' then the bar is a farking trip hazard...

My main was a female dwarf priest and man, did her boobs bounce a lot. Felt like real life.

Maybe Drew got tired of people complaining that he keeps greening ads for MoP and this is a sneaky way to get the world Blizzard out there again.

How successful has the game been in Korea?Blade & Soul has been received extremely well in the Korean market and immediately jumped to the top of the game charts, upsetting powerhouse games like  League of Legends and  Diablo III. Since its Korean launch,Blade & Soul has achieved fantastic concurrency rates with more than 230,000 fans playing at a time.  
but not available in the US ... LOL

like everything else at the geek tab, NCSoft or blizzard delivers a dump truck of money to Drew's house, ot at least a hooker and a bottle of jack.

I feel like the industry has been suffering from inadequate breast physics for some time.

It's not a trivial problem - even casual observers can pick up minor errors in jiggling motion/frequency even though they themselves can't really describe how it's different, they just know it is.

NCSoft doesn't give a shiat about you (unless you happen to be reading this in Korea or Taiwan). They give a shiat about Asia. That's always been their core with Lineage and Lineage II. They want to make sure that when anyone plays for 72 straight hours in an Internet cafe and drops dead, he's playing one of their games. Our nerds just can't compete.

Hasbro shut it down for copyright infringement. I think I saw this linked on Fark, actually.

As someone who plays Guild Wars 2, I'm not getting a kick out of this...

QT_3.14159: female dwarf priest and man


weirdest dual-class ever.
 
2012-12-20 05:15:58 PM  
The art is all done by a famous (in Korea) hentai artist.

The game is also tanking horribly there already. id on't know how they think bringing another asian grindfest to North America will make any money.

As a game industry software engineer who's done animation systems and physics systems for several shipped titles, I have to agree.  There's a great deal of complex system modeling to be done in order to get a handle on the problem, and yet whenever I talk to one of the producers and try to get a bunch of strippers into the mocap studio for boob bounce recording I just get called a pervert yet again and told to go back to my office.  
 
Admittedly my proposal might stand a better chance if we actually had a mocap studio here.

Made a female dwarf death knight in WoW, as one of the face options initially didn't show the blue glowing eyes. In a world of Barbie-shaped elves and humans, I chose to play as the semi-undead fat girl. But the sass and rarity of the toon make up for it.
 
2012-12-20 05:24:38 PM  
People are still making new MMOs? And still thinking that overprocessed graphics and unncessary sex are fine substitutes for solid gameplay?

Dammit I need to get the kickstarter going already. I couldn't be a worse game producer than many of today's pros apparently.

Those bastards. A MMO or a FPS or RPG would be epic. I tell you. Of course, half the server would be Trixie clones.

Thinking of getting the THQ bundle. And if Sega classic games go on sale, that's what my friends list is getting. True story; last year, I bought 50+ people on my friends list Ecco the Dolphin when it was on sale.

Didn't Age of Conan already try the titillation tactic? And fail miserably? Despite you being able to see your female character butt-naked with full textures (male characters still had underwear, because them naked would just be so gay, or something)?

Both male and female characters in Age of Conan wear underwear, that had nothing to do with why it failed so damn hard though. I agree with you though, a..*ahem* bouncy character may cause a potential player to look at your game, but it sure as hell takes a lot more than that to keep the players around.

I'll admit, I don't mind some eye candy when I'm playing, male or female. I'm gonna be staring at this character for hours, it had better be pleasing to the eye. But the rest of the game better be good, too, or else no amount of eye candy will make me play it.

/been playing WoW since the middle of Burning Crusade, nearly always a male Blood Elf, they are sexy. Sometimes a female Human, or either gender of Night Elf. Made some Goblin and Worgen characters when Cataclysm came out, but because they look cool, not hot
//Blizzard needs to step up their character model updating, and stop with the bullshiat "It takes a while" excuses, a second-year student with a copy of Studio MAX could do in two days what's taking them nine years+ to do

Fark NCSoft. Will never forgive them for shutting down the City of Heroes franchise.
 
2012-12-22 04:10:55 PM  
NCSoft? The same NCSoft that killed City, killed Tabula Rasa, and will probably kill North American Aion soon?

Yeah, fark 'em.
