I wonder where the paid shill is to hyper-promote this game?

The game working isn't the issue, it's how well it will work with all the bugs, and servers being up.

This isn't the first, or second or third time doing this. EVERY single X game has been a horrid mess until a year later. But at least with the previous games, they typically have had some sort of sale to push the NEXT BIG PATCH. But also almost a year later and it's 50 bucks on Steam (or 65 for the CE) is absurd.

50 bucks for a very broken game, and then you want to release paid DLC?

So long Egosoft, it was nice knowing you.

No it doesn't stink, look at his post history. It is your average gamer interests in every way. If he's considered a paid shill then I'm not sure what you call the people like slick or axis.

That being said, every bit of hands on time with this game from accountable sources have indicated the game is nothing special.

Thankfully there is another Survival Horror game coming out a week sooner! And as much as I hate Gearbox for Aliens: CM, I REALLY want to pre-order Aliens Isolation for the Nostromo Crew missions. I mean who wouldn't want to go back to that classic movie and try to survive the Alien and the whacked out android?

You sound like a paid shill for Sega.

But see at least I can flat out say that I have no connections in any way shape or form to Sega, Obsidian, or any sort of marketing team that has been hired to promote a game that has gotten nothing but 'Meh' reviews.
In fact even with the fiasco of Aliens CM, I'm actually looking forward to Aliens Isolation. Hats off to Creative Assembly for being able to do something other then Total War series of games, and bring back the look and feel of Alien, and putting the player in a survival horror game worthy of the genre, not some Resident Evil clone.

I have to agree, how the hell do you have the story 'your inside a mansion going after some crazy doctor who's home is littered with grenades and different types of crossbow bolts'?

I am looking at his post history. Look at every one that's related to Aliens Isolation and The Evil Within. He makes a rapid fanboi blush.

LOL Rigs.

Not sure why I'm pushing this (typically not my style) but come on now, doesn't it stink a little bit?


I was sorta hoping for 'I'm Michael Rigs, and I'm a lumberjack and I'm ok!'

Winner of so many awards that even a facehugger can't even wrap it's tail around it!

what if you were in a relationship that wasn't doing so well? You 'wake up' and are told this is your husband/wife. Do you feel obligated to try to have a relationship with them, and what if children are involved?

Think I'd want the baggage then trying to grow up again as a adult.

Looks like my 670 4gb will last me till the 20nm Maxwells hit next year. Looking forward to this game.

According to Bethesda,

Note: We do not have a list of minimum requirements for the game. If you’re trying to play with a rig with settings below these requirements (you should plan to have 4 GBs of VRAM regardless), we cannot guarantee optimal performance.

You still sound like your a paid schill for this game.

Woo! Packers are number 8 overall!

And no shit the Maple Laffs are dead last. Growing up in Toronto the one thing worse than being a Leaf fan is being surrounded by them. It's really more akin to a cult. Those people are waaaaaay out of touch with reality. At the start of every season they're just rationalizing away like mad how this, somehow this will be the year they'll go all the way. It's really beyond sad when you're watching it first hand.

As a long time bartender I'd be standing behind the bar as the drunken louts desperately try to convince themselves the Leafs are worth loving. That they'll somehow win. That the MLSE isn't just some hearltess corporation that only cares about money and that so long as they keep making money hand over fist that they know they'll never have to buy a winning team anyway. Forty-seven years since a cup. Hell the last time they even made the playoffs was what? 15 years ago now?

The Leafs will never win in my life time. In my 40s now and even if I live to be 100 I still sincerely doubt they'll ever win another cup. The MLSE knows they don't have to pay for a winning team, so they won't. The Leaf "nation" will still be there regardless, forking over their cash for Leaf merchandise up the wazoo, and still telling themselves each new seasons that this is the year they do it! Someone could do a doctoral dissertation on mass-delusion by studying the 'Leaf Effect'.


Welcome to Cincinnati.

At the end that whole thing was to bring internet connectivity back to little Jimmy at the diner. Day saved!

Can't be any worse then NCIS where ya have 2 idiots beating on the same keyboard. Not to mention the really shitty buddy/buddy comedy bits that are always cringe worthy.

At least it shows actual gameplay, I'll give them props for that.

The same exact gameplay that the first 2 games had with exception of low gravity and Claptrap can somehow now jump, but couldn't in BL 1 or 2?

Next thing you know they'll explain that midiclorians in Claptrap's system were only good until the batteries died?
