  1. TheMadGeek liked a post in a topic by MuddledMuppet in EU PvP: Who's up for it?   
    For those who may not wish to read my ramblings, feel free to just put a yay or nay as a reply as per topic title
     
    So here's my dillema, I'm new to the game, (new to AJSA as well) and massively keen to get my hands on some PvP action, but would love the comfort blanky of having a huge army as back up.
    However all the PvP action is in NA, and here I am in the EU (I have made a NA account after being advised to do so)
    Chatting with a guild mate, the craick seems to be currently all the PvP afficiandoes are on the NA server, with little interest from EU, but, there is a feeling withing AJSA that a EU PvP guild would be the best way forward. Kinda seems like a vicious circle as anyone interested in PvP is drifting over to the NA server, and as time goes by and people become more invested in their characters they'll be even less likely to get anything going this side of the big pond.
     
    How many people from the EU are currently playing NA for this reason? How many would consider making EU a going concern if we could get a group going? Maybe if there were more than a handful we could get something started, and once the ball is rolling it could grow steadily? If we can get a few people on board with this, I'm more than happy to get sonething going with recruitment videos etc, I'm only a small channel but I dare say I could get a few, if others here with small channels were interested we may be able to actually get a decent recruitment drive going?
     
    One last thing, if anyone is keen on teaming up (I'm currently very low level) feel free to add me @MuddledMuppet, preferably if you have skype as I been playing consoles waaaaaay to long and can't get used to push to talk

    Your question is are they good for the industry? I would say yes to that for the sole fact they benefit for the companies, is it good for you as a consumer ....naw not really. Sure mario on something like steam would drive large sales but just like in the world i come from you want that market for yourself, it's all about driving those numbers to your platform not theirs. Therefore it should "hopefully" fuel competition between them all i say that with a big hopefully because that never seems to happen lawl. It's just like when dota2 first came to steam, valve didn't care if it lost money early on because look at the numbers it brought to there platform in the end.

    The only downside to exclusivity that I can think of is that companies are limiting their profits. They'll have to make sure the platform they're making the game for has a big enough install base that they'd still make money back. Even then, it's not like 100% of people who have that particular console would buy the game.
     
     
    Think that makes console exclusives even more important for companies. Without exclusive games for each console, consoles would have one less thing to attract people to buy a particular one. The exclusive games can help people decide which console they choose to get. I've already explained why there has to be more than one console previously, so I won't get into that again.
  4. MuddledMuppet liked a post in a topic in Are console exclusives good for the gaming industry?   
    I don't believe they are good for the industry. Sometimes they are necessary, such as a developer only having the budget to make one version, but with today's hardware being so similar that excuse is losing it's merit.
  5. MuddledMuppet liked a post in a topic by Legolas_Katarn in Are console exclusives good for the gaming industry?   
    In the past, yes, because there could have been advantages to making something for one console compared to another, even when adding the PC to the equation a game could still turn out much better if the focus was only on making a game for one console, especially back in the 90s. Currently though I would say no, with everything running on similar hardware, with similar feeatures, I see it as only a way to sell your game to less people and to allow less people to be able to play it. The only people it is going to help is Sony or Microsoft if one end up selling more consoles than the other because of exclusives. Whenever possible I would prefer games to be made for everything so the largest number of people can enjoy them.
     
     
    Probably one of the worst campaigns I've played and a very lazy job with the multiplayer.

    If there weren't any exclusive games, fanboys would be arguing over the consoles themselves. PC Elitists and Console Fanboys prove that time and again.
     
    Exclusive games also help with healthy competition within the industry. It's the fanatics/fanboys are the ones that turn it ugly.  Remember that console exclusives such as "God of War", "Halo", "The Last of Us" drive hardware sales as well. If a game were available on every single console, there's very little reason to have more than one console. If that happens, then that company will have monopoly over the console business. Just think of last year's E3 if Microsoft was the only company that made consoles, announced the X1 just like they did then. Sony's not around to counter their "Always Online", "No Used Games" and other terrible policies. They'd have kept them as they know that people wouldn't have a choice.
     
    Exclusives can also give you new experiences such as "Ico", "Shadow of the Colossus", "Metal Gear Solid" and such. Then there are the exclusives that can show what can be done with the system such as "Goldeneye" showing how First-Person-Shooters could work well on a console. Yes, exclusive games series are coming out with more and more sequels, but they're still coming out with new exclusives as well. You can't say that some multiplatform titles like "Call of Duty", "Assassin's Creed", "Battlefield" aren't getting bland with each sequel.
     
    The exclusive games aren't what made fanboys. Fanboys will find anything to hold over their opposition's heads. Remember how Xbox Fanboys kept saying how Multiplatform games always looked better on the 360? Or how about how Playstation fanboys keep saying how the PS4 is technologically more powerful than the X1. Then there's the PC Elitists always touting how much more they can get with their rigs over consoles. All of these are facts, and all of them don't necessarily have anything to do with Exclusive Games.
     
    I speak strictly of the Single Player since I haven't had Gold since Reach, but I actually thought that 4 was alright. It's the first Halo that I played on Legendary difficulty right out of the gate, and I got over 20 hours out of it, and I thought the story was passable.

    no. they drive fanboyism. how many times have you heard sony fanboys whining towards xbox fanboys about how uncharted and last of us games are better than what the other side has, and vice versa?
     
    a lot of console exclusives are also shit. they normally come with bland and often repeated storylines / plots, have the same sort of game mechanics repeated, and are normally a series of the same title. there's not much in the way for new console exclusives, and if there is, those will also become a series and get repeated.
     
    i believe it's a trend, mr OP. console exclusives cater to console fans / fanatics, the core base of people who are likely to buy those games. if these people are used to games that never last, and get played once or twice and are either shelved or sold off for them to go and buy more games to repeat their gaming style, then these are the games each console will get as exclusives.
     
    multi plat games are normally either brand new, or part of a series but usually always come with something new about them that make them unique. they don't just repeat the same formulas previous games had. they also normally have much longer content / playtime for them, and larger in content, and are cheaper than console only exclusives, and have better development and ethics behind their gameplay for the gamer, and normally are good enough to not be sold or traded in. example: when last of us came out, i recall it being £49.99. when borderlands 2 came out, i recall it being £39.99, for all platforms.

    An exclusive that is written to harness the particular features of a paltform is good. One that is done purely as a marketing tool is bad for consumers, as are exclusive missions/add-ons.dlc etc. If a game will be capable of running on any platform, it doesn't serve gamers at all one little bit to have it denied. It may make sense to the suits, but to us? No way.

    Unfortunately you cant move your character form EU to NA. You have to start new one. But you will not regret. I fell no disadvantage by playing on US server. And action is awesome. 
  13. MuddledMuppet liked a post in a topic by Shaminar in To those who attended to the Commanders' event, what did you think of his speech?   
    Just move to the US server.
     
    I'm Australian and I selected the US server and it works perfectly fine.

    I thought the speech was superb, however it was kinda bad having to hear all you yanks have a shit loada fun when there was only three of us in the EU server lol
    hopefully the EU server will fill up a bit and we can get in on that kinda action.
    I hope we have someone on our server equally inspiring!

    This game looks pretty sweet, if you're a fan of turn-based strategy. Not exactly the usual Joe fare, I know, but come on. The guy made XCOM! Donated $35, myself.

    First you are prompted with the server, you will of course select the EU one.
    If you do not have the pre-order edition, the class will select the faction (pre-order lets you mix & match).
    Daggerfall Covenant: Breton, Orc, Redguard
    Aldmeri Dominion:      High Elf, Wood Elf, Khajiit
    Ebonheart Pact:         Argonian, Dark Elf, Nord
    So your best bet is to look at the faction the EU group is using, and select a race in that faction or you won't be able to play with them.
