This game looked like Uncharted on steroids.
This tool actually thinks it'd be an issue to sell this game on digital distro?
What an abject moron.

I trust Steam to provide me this service simply because it's obvious how and why Valve operate.
Forum activity should never mean result in the inability to use your own purchased software.
Regardless of the posting, regardless of the activity.

I've never used any online cheats and frankly don't see the point but I understand that if you're banned from VAC for cheating, you can still play on non-VAC servers or games without issue.

I can't remember the last EA game I bought, and frankly with every new release of titles, I'm finding less and less EA titles are catching my interest, save for a few scathing remarks.

EA. We're in your Ass.

News Comments > More on DOOM 3 Source Release

@SirKnight You are absolutely correct.
That's why.. Let me see if I understand this:
Carmack is going to write new code that effectively does what his old code does, just not in the way it did it when he originally shipped D3.
So in effect, he's writing new code for the masses so the company doesn't lose money on OOOOOLLLDD software that nobody would use to make a game today.

Okay, I can see how that makes sense coming from a company that released Rage and then instead of releasing a patch they released this statement: 'Wellp... Worked on our machines..'

Oh yeah. Well... at least he's not Molyneaux
Seriously. He could be Molyneaux.

Requiring Facebook is mental! Only in America.

Again, I fail to see how you took what I said as "requiring." No one requires anything. But it's something easy to help distinguish yourselves.



Again, like I'm amazed at how people fail to understand how recruiting works, I'm also amazed at how people fail to understand how your fellow man works. Do you know what people went to high school with you do? They punch you into Facebook to see what you're up to. When you don't show up they assume you're either dead or an antisocial reject. You may not care what they think, but again, you never know when someone you once knew may be able to help you out. Having a simple blank page with a picture, your college and the fact that you like Archer and Breaking Bad will take you 5 minutes and make you seem accessible.

News Comments > Final Fantasy Action/RPG?
12. Re: Final Fantasy Action/RPG? Nov 17, 2011, 00:17 Tanto Edge
 
Every Final Fantasy up until VIII followed a formula. IX went back to that formula, and X decided that crimes of passion aren't limited to people, and committed a murder most heinous.

The changes they made along the way were the growing pains of any franchise but they've always maintained the staples and even the seeming drastic changes are typically just renamed or retooled versions of the old.
An example of this is the sphere grid in X, which is fancy and daunting at first glance is really just a skill tree like any other.
Occasionally you're given the opportunity to branch, but only after you've followed the system for however long.

Bah, fuck this shit. Skyrim awaits.

Yes! After all the time players spend learning a system; you go and change the system. Yes, players love when system changes. You ass twat.

Yeah, because it isn't like every single title in the series has had a completely different system...

Wow yeah, hard to say who would/should/could take GOTY.

Oh, wait a minute, no it's not because even Skyrim is just more of the same, with a coat of paint. I'm still running along rocks and hiding behind a bowl to steal a greatsword from the only other person in the room. I love the dwemer structures, I love the incredible thought to the landscape, and everything.
Skyrim is my personal favorite as well for everything that makes it amazing, including the dragons, of which no fps game has had since Quake (they never made release, but they were there goddamnit).

Deus Ex had story, cohesive structure, and a tight path the story wove through that structure.
It was a really smart game. Sadly, the schwag was shit, and I think schwag makes or breaks GOTY status.

My vote for GOTY? To MW3 for (hopefully) finally killing the franchise with its sameness. Finally fans woke the fuck up and cried bullshit, and for that, GOTY is deserved.

Note: This message is laden with extreme amounts of sarcasm.

The Dwarven ruins in this game are awesome! How many folks have really explored the Dwemer underground? It's immense! Detailed! Connected! You can roam for hours and using various buildings entrances and exits, find your way across Skyrim!
It's incredibly well thought out. Absolutely amazing!

Lockpicking requires no perks. Just a steady hand, and cool nerves.
I pick master locks and the only points I've ever had in lockpicking are those that are generated by lockpicking.

(bump the tumbler, don't just turn it, so you don't break picks)

Now having said that, it's funny to me that once upon a time you could start your character then make your way to the local plantation where you'd get a jinxing dagger that would break the gameplay for the next few hours, because it was so overpowered, and that was out in the open.
Nowadays I've picked all sorts of high level locks and all I get is steel hammers.
Everything in the game world seems governed by the leveling system, preventing me from gaining any advantage by my thiefsy ways.

The new system really makes a concerted effort to pigeon hole you and if you're not using trainers to focus yourself, I suspect you'd find yourself too focused.

If there is a level cap, then I guess you're right. Kinda. You can still max out all your skills, you just can't max out all your perks. Granted, the perks are pretty handy but they aren't essential. My Destruction skill is only level 20 and I'm already destroying enemies with my flamethrower. Bows seem a bit overpowered too, as I'm killing most enemies in one hit with the sneak shots and my archery is only level 30. This is on Expert difficulty, too.

The perks are pretty damn essential. For one-armed for example the first perk is a 5-long tree of "adds 20% damage." If I reach the cap without putting anything into that, how effective would I be with one-armed weapons without it? I would be doing half damage, essentially.

Similarly the lockpicking pretty much requires you to get the perks, at least so far. And since the perks require a skill level you can't just perk your way to awesome, you have to devote time to certain skills so when your level-up comes you can get the perks you want.

I think it's a brilliant system honestly, and encourages you to pick a role MUCH more than Morrowind or Oblivion did.

Obviously this is the difference between Canada and the US. In Canada, requiring something like that is a violation of the employment and hiring act. Plus in Canada, despite being prolific at having FB accounts, privacy of the individual still reigns supreme, because it's protected in codified law.

To plenty of people, having a FB account means that it's a cry for attention, because you don't get enough of it.

I'll take the completely open ended, first person, questathalon over the bottle necked, top down, clicktastic drudgeathon.

If I wanted to watch a top down epic that would keep me engauged, I'd befriend some midgets and follow them around town (I smell reality show).

Diablo sucks balls, always has. Fuck Blizzard and their auction house.
Enjoy bidding real money on fake swords and shields you sad little monkeys.
