    matt it's a persistent world open ended MMO with

    1) a COMPLETELY different leveling scheme to cookie cutter wow-clones
    2) completely different gameplay to wow-clones
    3) dynamic interactions where each enemy encounter is a team of actual players (cops and robbers style)
    4) shooting and splosions and skill-based combat

    what about that is "same old" to you?

    They seem to ruin everything dont they.

    Nice nightman sig/av btw


    Thanks, it keeps me in a good mood so I try to post more often.

    My buddy went to the live performance of the nightman cometh. He said it was the best moment of his life.

    well, the worst of it was from when I was 12 till I was about 16. Then came about 9 years of horrific bi-polar (well, from ages 14-23) mixed with increasingly bad joint problems (mostly focused on my knees).

    These days it's the joint problems that are the real kicker and my memory still isn't that great. The immune system has never fully recovered and I manage the bipolar without pills (finally) after having learnt to know the signs and deal with things as best I can.

    My cousin was just diagnosed last year, after six months of his mom yelling at him to stop faking. His symptoms so far have been joint pain, worsening vision, and some memory problems. It's been pretty rough for him just dealing with this much.

    Is there anything you'd recommend for him? His mom's still not being very supportive of him and I wish I could help more.

    honestly

    you just take a game like Saints Row 2 or inFamous or Spider-Man 2

    and you let people create their own superhero

    you make fucking huge money

    throw in some co-op and vs. multiplayer

    and you got a winner

    Honestly, I'm not sure. My family were extremely supportive (thank deity-of-you-choice, given that my GP tried to have me committed). There are several help organisations these days for chronic fatigue/ME, many of which I believe are accessible on the web (when I got ill the web was still Janet on my dad's computer :P).

    The internets is probably your friend for this. Especially as there's still no diagnosis that isn't simply one of exclusion of all other possible interests.

    okay, fine

    except, APB doesn't have a subscription fee.
    Actually all they've said is they haven't figured out a price and "payment model", just that it won't be the "traditional monthly subscription model". From the FAQ.

    Which means the game won't cost $15 a month.

    What it does mean is they will probably have micro-transactions (an easy thing to pull off in a game like this, you just sell clothes or car designs or whatever for real money) or they will go the expansion pack release model, like GuildWars uses

    or have other locked content behind micro-transcations, like DDO is using now

    which, in any case, would be optional things you could just ignore if you didn't want to buy them.

    so whining about a monthly subscription fee like the game has to "justify" it can take a hike

    but, i continue to maintain you are an unpleasable whiner and at this point i challenge you to prove me wrong

    The difficult part is ensuring you buy components that will slot together.

    Beyond that, you just need to common sense to figure out why two parts aren't fitting together, instead of applying force until they do.
