Are you serious?


I am not really very much into Star Trek. *shrug*.

I'm more of a fan of MMORPGs, and Sci-Fi in general.

Where can I find that game?  And not for $100 on eBay or amazon.

Other than a torrent, I don't know. Try Staples or Office Depot. They sometimes have old games.

The mods are free though. You may have to search some forums to see which ones conflict with others. But its a whole new world for that game.

Is this for PC too? It looks interesting. Hopefully its not as out of control as Operation Metro can get.

So people are mad about ME3's ending. Don't want to give away too much, but there are some giant plot holes. It's pretty obvious that Drew leaving mid way through ME2 and the story/script getting leaked and having to be changed before release.

I wish they wouldn't. There are enough lame MMOs out there and I have no desire in playing an MMO. I wish they'd stick with single player since they are about the only people currently doing that.

An Elder Scrolls MMO would be magnificent, and that is not open for debate.

I thought the quests were boring. I'll pick it up again when they patch and try to play it more organically (which is how I started playing it) instead of trying to bang through quest-lines (which is how I ended up playing it eventually).

I played most of the quests in Skyrim and got thoroughly burned out on it. I doubt I'll ever play it again. Was fun while it lasted though.

Rift is nice.

Star Trek Online is pretty cool too, but it has a real single-player vibe to it.

That's how I felt about STO.  Rift has some cool elements (the public grouping in rifts is neat) but some things just seemed limited, I was especially turned off by lack of addons.  I'm a fail heals, worthless without my healing addon :lol:

Wow ... they're still using the FreeSpace 2 engine?

And I wish they would design a game based on the remake of Battlestar Galactica. That show was epic

There is a F2P browser based MMO based on it.  Flying a viper around killin' cylons.

Lead designer Stone Librande confirmed that SimCity would be an internet-dependent experience. Players will need to be online on Origin while playing, even if that wasn't the point of purchase. The always-on connection becomes necessary with the game's emphasis on multiplayer and regional impact, and the use of a global economy that all players can influence.


How freaking lame is this? I just want to create some cities in a sandbox, but I have to be online and have my city affected by other cities?  :roll:

It's not going away. It's the only method they have right now of combating piracy.

Not sure if you read the article -- combating piracy with this sort of system is a joke, but I was actually complaining about how there's a worldwide economy system that would affect my game. I just want my game played in a sandbox.

But I'm not clear if you have to be involved in the multiplayer components. The article makes it sound like you will have to be.

EA is just ripping off the wildly successful Steam model.  The reason people are noticing now is because EA publishes a lot of very high profile games, and they're taking a heavier-handed approach to this model than Steam ever did.
