The NFL organization is a bad joke. Their pretense of having some sort of moral code of conduct would be laughable if it wasn't so sad. How many times does Cheaterchick get to cheat and get away with it? How many of the criminals in the league get to be criminals and get away with it? Pay a fine and off you go. That's the message they're sending. Lie, cheat, steal, do drugs, beat your wife, kill people, etc. and it's not only ok, you get rewarded for it.

I'm still having a hard time figuring out why this is cause for such alarm. Baseball teams doing all manner of ungodly things to the infield dirt or outfield grass in order to affect running and/or ball movement across those surfaces is just thought of as part of the game and a legitimate use of home field advantage. But take a bit of air out of a damn football and suddenly it's like Snidely Whiplash levels of skullduggery.

Exit question: Are baseball fans that much more accustomed to underhanded tactics, or are football fans that much thinner-skinned?

Changing the grass in baseball affects both teams, but from what I've been reading, it almost seems both offenses in an NFL game use separate sets of game balls?

In any case, baseball fans are just as pissed when there's cheating (I watched game 2 of the 2007 world series with a fellow Cardinals fans, and holy shit, I thought he was going to explode because Kenny Rogers was using pinetar while pitching. It was pretty incredible just how pissed he got) but the media makes far less of a broohaha about it.

Also, there's really nothing else to talk about re: the NFL right now, so it gets ridiculous amounts of attention.

DANGER ZONE! Dang, rogers not loggins.....still funny though.

I'll try it out at some point buit if it as boring and mundane as Guild Wars 2 was/is, I will be done with it pretty quickly.

IMO it's even worse. I lasted about a month in GW2. 2 weeks was more than enough in ESO, it's just so damn boring.

I spend A LOT of time reading books, listening to lore, crafting, etc. If you are just going to do point A point B missions and the lore isn't something you care about, then skip it. In that sense it is "just another MMO" point and click do this then that grind fest.

But if you are a huge fan like myself, then you will love it.

So, all discussions of Buy to Play vs F2P aside, is this game any good?

For an MMO, it's not bad. They do a lot of things that caters towards immersion, but they botch up grouping if you want to keep questing with the same people from one day to the next. Lots of phased quests, and no rested XP to help catch up to friends if you're out for a while.

Dungeon runs are kind of chaotic in a fun way because the AI doesn't just come straight at you like in other MMO's. I tried doing a line of site pull one time, and instead of getting all the melee mobs to come first, they grouped up with the casters and they all came around the corner at the same time. Was kind of a hilarious slaughter.

Basically it's worth checking, imo. I enjoyed my soloing in it. Haven't played since August.

Yea it is pretty hard solo. I did pub groups for some missions or just hung out with friends. I setup a couple BN groups for the different factions, just need to get back in and post em.

Wolf going for 17 bucks on G2a.com

Think I'll wait it out a bit longer but I've been hearing a lot of good things about it.

Its Wolf. Pretty good game, but pretty much on rails from what I have seen so far. Only 1 direction to go. But, it is Wolf, and it does Wolf pretty darn well.

Still not totally clear what is going to happen....I really like the game, flaws and all, I just didn't have the time to put into it. I think I did 90 days of fun....we will see what happens to my dudes when it goes "f2p" which it really isn't....

I love SR 2-4 (except the purple - hate that colour, don't want my gang in it). I burnt through SR4 again on the free weekend before buying it (kid distracted me with wow for 4 hours which meant I din't finish it in time).

That said I'm reading elsewhere this is a 3 hour game/expansion so not paying that much for it (I have general rule of thumb is games should cost less per hour than the average cinema price).

As for they have no ideas where to take this franchise - are you kidding me???? This is Violition they made freespace, they left the saint's in space, the space sim is making a big time comeback.

True spaceships with dildos aren't really a thing but the Saint's humour and characters crossed with an semi-open (forget galaxies focus on fun) space sim could be awesome. I want to replace the laser on my starter ship with Britney Spears guns which play "Toxic" so loudly into my targets ship the occupants commit suicide.

1 and 2 are crazy hard on the side missions - just stupid hard.

Boss battles are almost never fun. I hate just having to sit and grind away. Same reason I never got into raiding in MMOs. It's boring as hell. It's like the dragons in DAI. They're pretty cool, but ultimately it just results in a long drawn out grind of a battle.

You should check out Shadow of the Colossus. The entire game is boss battles! Amazing, epic boss battles!

That game is hard. I didn't look at any help guides and gave up quickly. Thinking about trying again with some help. How the hell would I ever think to do any of that....same with Demon Souls, etc. As I get older I have been groomed to be game stupid. My brain used to be able to figure these things out - now I am dumb cause of cheevos and guides.

Not in steam......YOU BETTER NOT BE PLAYING ON CONSOLE!

On the one hand they explicitly stated they have no idea where to go from here since they can't think of anything even more over the top.

On the other hand they still want to make games in the Saints Row universe.

Why not bring the game full circle and have the Saints be the gang you topple as an upstart in a relatively obscure gang? That's what you did starting with SR1.

That would be awesome. Or do a prequel to the first one. It was actually pretty good, but only on console.

Or re imagine the first one.

The only real difficulty for me was some of the warchief mission/ability combinations. I remember one where a warchief was immune to all but the most difficult attack methods. The mission to draw him out was to sound the alarm in the biggest fort on map 1 and kill 20-ish orcs. Of course sounding the alarm summons all the nearby captains too, plus the horde of vanilla baddies. The spot it occurred at didn't have hanging meat nearby to summon caragors, and the scene transition took away any mount you might bring. That took a few tries.

Otherwise I didn't mind the easy difficulty too much. I enjoyed playing the game like I was their boogeyman. I had a few runes equipped to increase their fear and send them running in terror. They didn't get far. Mwahahaha.

I'm currently trying to figure out how to kill a level 20 Warchief who's only weaknesses are a fear of fire and a fear of flies.

I had trouble with one and had to wait until much later in the game see here, he was tucked back in that port area where a mixture of 3-6 captains and chiefs always hang out (northern most part I think?) and I couldn't get him out of there to save my life.

Then I finally got him to flee, and he moved to an area that was super easy to kill him at. I also had 3-4 branded captains to take him down. I don't know how, but when you attack, they block everything, if a captain attacks them, they go down SUPER QUICK. Which can be a + or a - as you might not get to brand them cause they die so fast.

It can be luck of the draw, but really look at what your options are. Can you overtake or brand captains and chiefs that surround him via in fighting? Can you draw them out and use them? Can you ride a caragor or big troll to scare people away or scare him away?

Lots of options, but like I said, sometimes it is just the luck of the draw where that individual ends up.

Afraid of fire? Easy, do you have fire bolts? Boom, runs away and you can grab him elsewhere or chase him down. They are weaker when they run.

I have mastered the game so hit me up in steam with questions. I have to restart the game to get the rest of the cheevos, as I have branded everyone.....whoops.
