You could probably add Skyrim and The Sims series in there as well. Though they don't really add sex as part of the main game, they can be modded to make nothing more than porn simulators if that is what you wish.

Of course they would say that. As you mentioned, they are made from the gaming industry. I love video games, but I hope the W.H.O. is successful.

EA probably thought they couldn't monetize it enough.

I was able to get the ME 1 and 2 DLC for free on my PC by using the following link that will take you to EA website. I had the story DLC for ME2 but none of the other. It let me download everything I was missing from ME 2 and I got all from ME 1 and paid nothing for it all. https://help.ea.com/en-us/help/origin/origin/download-dlc-for-classic-origin-games/#masseffect

The three pieces of DLC that would have saved Mass Effect: AndromedaThe three pieces of DLC that would have saved Mass Effect: Andromeda

I couldn't agree more. I love the OT because of story, characters, and good dialog. It was the core of the OT that brought people in and made it the pinnacle of RPG's. With Andromeda, that concept was thrown out the window in favor of open world, world building, and a more multiplayer type combat system. None of which I remember people begging Bioware for.


They decided they are going another direction and the core of the OT isn't what is important anymore and it shows. Weak story, forgettable characters, and dialog that is aimed at the nickelodeon crowd. Bring back what made the OT great and I'm in, otherwise I'm done with ME series.

Why can they not do both though large open world Colony building and a great story? This is 2017 these companies should be more than capable of doing this especially for the money they charge.

Epic Games settle their first case against Fortnite cheatersEpic Games settle their first case against Fortnite cheaters
JTP1 Avatar
While I don't agree with cheating and the boy should be punished, EPIC is going to lose this if it goes to court. If Epic violated state law that is a criminal offense. The boy broke no criminal statues from the information given. Does not matter if they knew his age or not. This won't go well for Epic.

Best thing to do is settle out of court and hope Delwares DA doesn't go after them if in fact Epic broke state law.Reply

EPIC cannot possibly lose this if they go to court. It is copyright violation. They own the rights to showing the gameplay, it's no different than putting a movie on youtube. If your curious why things like let's play videos aren't taken down for it.

A. they are, it's not that common but they are, I think nintendo recently started doing this.

B. there is a legal grey area where things can become derivitive works and such if you provide a lot of your own unique commentary etc.

C. fair use comes into this as well, though once you hit 20 minutes of use and not 20 seconds, it's pretty clear cut your violating copyright.


He's guilty. "if epic violated state law this is a criminal offense" it's a criminal offense in the same manner that jaywalking is also a criminal offense. Being criminal does not automatically make it spooky terrifying. They did not release his information, they sued him and the suit became a matter of public record, HOWEVER they did not know he was a minor, more over THEY COULD NOT HAVE KNOWN. The only way to force him to acknowledge them and verify his identity was to sue him, if you read the lawsuits it specifically says we have reason to believe ...


This is hardly different than what's known as a john doe suit where your suing someone without entirely even knowing who that is, you know what right was violated, you know someone did it but you may not know who and you through a john doe suit use the court to uncover who in fact it is you are in fact suing.


Deleware state attorney is going to recognize this and not go after them.


The whole idea of it's free to play therefore they didn't lose money is BS. It's free to play, but it's also optional to pay and they lost out on options, or at least one can argue a game populated by cheaters is one legitimate players are less likely to spend money on playing. It's obvious EPIC isn't paying it's developers with player's enjoyment of the game. They are generating tons of revenue from the game, so yes they could easily produce a profit and loss statement and make an argument cheaters devalue the property.

WHile I agree DAI was trash for me, DA2 is the best game of the series in terms of story, characters, and dialog. I also like the combat and tactics in it better than DAO, though it's a close call. For me the companions in DA2 are the best in the DA series and better than any in the ME series.

Even with all of it short comings DA2 was my favorite also. It actually had balls to try something different than you generic rpg.

Origins while it was solid product with sweet visuals felt like copy paste from several older rpgs, especially NeverWinter Nights 2.

Inquisition sank the franchise for me. Don't know what happened in the dlcs and I don't care.

World of Warcraft will scale all its zones from patch 7.3.5World of Warcraft will scale all its zones from patch 7.3.5
JTP1 Avatar
Kind of troubled by this. I don't raid. There are many reasons, but what I liked is the fact that I can go back as a higher level toon and do the raids solo and still try and get mounts or what not. I know many who do just that. The more I hear about the coming changes the more I'm inclined to retire WoW from my gaming list.Reply

Vanilla zones only scale 1-60, BC and Wrath only scale 60-80, Pandaria and Cata 80-90. You're not going to go into Elwyn forest at lv. 120 and get ganked by a Kobold.

Even some of the examples were more toned down than that with some zones only scaling up til 20 or so, so that the world would be broken up more and give you a choice when leveling. Then other zones have a leveling floor so you aren't going straight from Elwyn forest directly into Blasted lands.


Nothing was ever mentioned about scaling dungeons or raids up to 120 outside of specific timewalking events where you have to specifically que for that timewalking dungeon or raid.

That has been apparent with their last two releases. Doesn't give me much hope for the next DA game. I have never been one to want games to fail, but I'm kind of hoping Anthem dies a quick death to send a message to EA.

If DA4 is as bad as MEA was, then I'm done with Bioware and EA for good. I have zero interest in anything else EA has to offer.Reply
NihlusGreen Avatar

I feel the same way. But if Anthem fails we can expect BioWare to be shutdown also?


I hope other devs can step up to this huge SP RPG space, because I doubt EA is going to provide much here.
