I remember when whips and mauls/slayer came out and the first few whips were being sold for like close to 100m on forums.
Yeah Abby whips used to be the go-to weapon, everyone who was anyone used it, really. Now you wouldn't be caught dead using it. Sadness.
I remember sucking at making money at that game, and saving up for 3 weeks to buy one of them. Then dying within 2 days and saying fuck it.
Thanks for putting the game name in the title
Dude wat, I remember when I got mine for 1.3m and thought it was a steal.
I don't know if anybody asked this, but whats the go-to weapon everyone uses now? shit I haven't played in forever
Jesus. That game has aged
I was late to the party I always bought and sold whips around 1 mil
the day before evolution of combat came out, they were worth 1.1 mil each, as people thought they would be buffed for EOC, when Evolution of combat came out,they got nerfed and they were worth 17k apiece
SOURCE: I invested 50 mil into them and lost it all when EOC came out
A whip? In Runescape?! What?!
I guess I'm getting to old for this.
and when Runescape was actually addicting and fun to play... with a great community... oh how I miss it :(
I do, i miss runescape from 2007 only way i could talk to my cousin when he lived far away from me.
Holy shit, it's 80K now? I remember first selling my entire bank (literally, I sold everything and it took 4-5 inventories) to afford that at around 5-6M.
2010 is the last time I ever played RS. I had about 276M cash with maybe 40M in items, which I had gotten mostly through farming. Those were the good days...
Ahhh when runescape as fun and simple to play..
Jesus... I bet if I went back on now my armour that I paid about 20m for would be worth about 500k... :( Makes me sad even though I will probably never play again.
I bought it for about 300K years ago when it was around that price for a while. I thought I was getting it for a steal.

Holy Shit..got mine for 2.5 mill a few years back thought i was a boss. I feel my wallet hurt even though i dont play anymore.Is their any major reason why this has happened i haven't really followed a whole pile recently i know its an entire different game to the good old days alright
I paid 8.7 mil for my first one when they were 10 mil, I was so pleased with my bargain. Now I could buy 16 with what I saved.
Fuck 3 mil, I remember them being sold for 16 mil. I bought one for 8 mil!

I quit playing in 2006 though. Played it for 3 years.

They need to start a whole new MMO, I know they have just rebooted it for the 2005 version but they should make a new one that's similar and still have it's money and economy.. Purely because this new game will have a fresh economy, I dunno... Just a new runescape game... So it's still runescape, I loved the money system though.. That's what sold it about runescape for me.... Ahhh... One of the best games ever ...

STD products: "Once they are on, you ain't getting rid of em."
I had one of these as a child and it was pretty nice. The speakers were better than the build in one and I could play the game in bed or during car rides when it was dark. Also the snap on joystick/buttons worked well enough that even with out the screen or speakers on I would leave them on. Also you could power the whole rig with the optional official large rechargeable battery. What was pretty innovate was the way this system was normally powered. It had an thin ribbon wires that actually hooked into the battery compartment without preventing the cover from being attached.

I actually like it. One of the Digital Media Arts professors at my college has one, and we got to play a couple games on it. Sure, it's nowhere near as good as a PC or more expensive console, but I enjoyed it for the potential of a cheap home theater system. Just put any video you wanna watch on a USB and plug it in. And the games I did try were pretty neat (Like Super Mega Worm or whatever it was called).
I didn't follow the hype, and only payed attention to how people were let down after. So going into it expecting it to be utter garbage, I was pleasantly surprised that it was mediocre/average, for $100 anyway.
Anyway, that's just my opinion, and you guys are allowed to have your own. But if you're complaining about it without even trying it, see if someone you know has one, try it out, and form your own opinion. Don't just pile onto the hate train unless you have a personal frame of reference. You might find out you like it a little bit. But even if you don't, at least you will be able to say you've tried it.
TL;DR: I tried it, didn't think it was too bad as a multimedia system, with a console minigame included. Try it out yourself (if you know someone who owns it so you don't have to buy it), and form your own opinions.

Can someone tell me why the Ouya is so bad? I never really paid attention to it.
39 points - 15 hours ago
I don't know where the Ouya hate came from. It's a nice little box. Personally, I think it's worth the $100 for Plex alone. I bought a Roku last Black Friday for $80 just for Plex, and it can't do a quarter of the things the Ouya can. Adding in emulation and games just makes the deal sweeter. It's a great social gaming device with the types of multiplayer games on it, most free or very cheap. Just don't assume that since you don't value it that no one else should.
41 points - 15 hours ago
I actually want an Ouya... For $99, it actually sports features that I really like. I would probably mostly use it as an emulator box, but games like 'the amazing frog?' and especially 'Towerfall' make the cheap system worth buying. I hope that if a kid who wanted an Xbox One or PS4 ended up with an Ouya, he/she'd enjoy it more than they thought they would. Merry Christmas to that kid.

What about a Wii U? Maybe he wished for that.
Its a $100 bucks. Most poor kids I know cry with joy when they get a new coat, shoes, and even food.
Ouya is actually not as bad as people bash it. It's a fun little timewaster console. I don't regret buying it

While I'd never spend the money, I'd love to hack the hell out of one of these things.
Where would you buy the games for this console?
Is there a 'depressing' tag?
This needs one.
Seeing as how my nephews play more tablet games than console game they would probably be happier.
"What's the matter sweetie, isn't that the one you wanted?"
I'll take it! I'll emulate the shit out of PS1, N64, and game boy advance games.
but the PS4 and XboxOne currently have no games really worth getting.
At least you can run emulators on it....
You,know what I got for Christmas? A carton of smokes.
My mom got me offbrand Pokemon cards in middle school. We didn't have a lot of extra money, but one day she went out and bought a pack without telling my dad. She was so excited to give them to me she waited outside school even though I had practice that day. I tried really hard to act excited, and never told her they weren't the right thing. I always wondered if she could tell when she gave them to me.
Really there are worse things out there. A momeny of silence may not really apply here, next time :)
The Ouya is a very good piece of hardware for the money, just not what people were expecting it for. It's a great little HTPC box for running XBMC and in a few months I expect it will get native Openelec support. If it was $99 in the UK and not £99 I would probably be investing in one.

Boo fucking hoo, at least they have Christmas.
"Honey, we bought you that new game console that came out!" In that moment, little Andy's Christmas prayers had been answered. The final box to be opened lay waiting under the tree, it's contents now all but verified. All he had to do was rip the gaudy paper prison that it was enclosed in, and unleash its' playground-envy inducing magic.
What was it? Andy wondered as he sized up the box, Looks a little on the small side… Wii U? He picked it up. It felt… Light. There was still weight to it. But it felt a little too small.
Maybe it's just an extra controller, and I'll have to go on a scavenger hunt for the rest? His childlike innocence did its best to shield his naive psyche from the truth that awaited him inside that box. The cold truth of life.
As his fingers peeled back the wrapping paper, his eyes glimpsed the glossy finish of the console's package. His anxiety grew, and the whirlwind of paper increased as Andy removed the last remnants of holiday cheer. So, too, were the last remnants of his innocent caste away. Because there before him, cradled in his hand. He held Ouya. Ouya.
No bragging would be done on the playground that year. Nor the next. In fact, Andy would become quite withdrawn from the social circles that encompassed all life in the hallowed halls of early education. He had no stories in common with the other kids and no desire to invite anyone over to play with, lest he reveal the source of his eternal shame.
Life passed Andy by. It took no note of him, and he took no note of it. The emotional scars of that Christmas day followed Andy to his unfortunately early grave. Nobody came to his funeral, except for the local priest and the gravedigger. The standard sentimental words were spoken, the verses were read, the prayers recited. And without a single tear shed, his casket was lowered into the earth.
As the gravedigger stood over the fresh plot, all he could do was shake his head sadly for a moment, before leaving to carry out his other duties. And so ends the life of Andy, Owner of the Ouya.

Moment of silence for the poor kids who get Wii U too
40 points - Yesterday
But the way I play Starcraft or at least I imagine it is like one unit represents a squadron so like 20 guys represent like a whole army like in cutscenes. So when a Terran battle cruiser flys low to take on an army it will take fire. Imagining the game in this scale is cool too because then you imagine probes as like mining teams and the ores as mines. And the mothership to me feels like a mothership. I know the scale of each model and if you want to see it that way I respect you but it feels epic if you imagine each final battle like the cut scenes with Zerg swarms like waves and Terran platoons fighting to the last breath.
TLDR : scale and imagination would help when playing strategy games (civ 5 people the size of cities)
9 points - Yesterday
Games get less representative and more iconistic the further you zoom out. If the largest ships are to-scale, imagine the marines as icons representing entire platoons. If the marines and ships were at the same scale the marines would be one pixel wide and the mothership would take up several screens.
