• EXTomar posted a message in the forum topic Vault of Glass looks both amazing and depressing.. on the Destiny board

    The original issue with Diablo 3 was that they subscribed to the view that "hardcore only play at this level" (5% of the players see 100% of the content) which was definitely a ruinous attitude and be...

    The Intel HD 4000 is a very common video card due to its price and support but it is not powerful relative to competition offerings.

  • EXTomar posted a message in the forum topic What do you do when the staff hates a game you are playing?. on the General Discussion board

    Just do this: Don't worry about what other people like. If you are having fun with Destiny then you are having fun with Destiny and don't need to worry if the GB staff is or is not having fun as well...

    What they are banking on is that "Realms" will actually be feasible and deployable in 9 months and people will pay for them. That is really their gamble where trinkets and sundry isn't what Microsoft...

  • EXTomar posted a message in the forum topic Microsoft Is Buying Minecraft. on the Minecraft board

  • EXTomar posted a message in the forum topic Exposing sexism in this generation. on the General Discussion board

    @jeust: It is possible that the "dynamics" have changed over the last generation. I wonder if it is more about "guys don't buy so much any more" more than "we want to sell to girls".

  • EXTomar posted a message in the forum topic Microsoft really did buy Mojang. on the Mojang AB board

    I wonder if there was a way to just sell Minecraft off instead of Mojang. Or the alternative is just to just stop work on Minecraft and "sunset" it. Or maybe Notch really is fed up with all of the cra...

  • EXTomar posted a message in the forum topic Microsoft really did buy Mojang. on the Mojang AB board

    @machofantastico: I think Notch made out like a bandit. I am not sure there is anything to improve or change that won't be controversial where I can see he didn't want to deal with it any more.
