‘The Last of Us: Remastered’

I'm about 2/3rds of the way through, and it's certainly memorable...


Did you play the PS3 version?

Typically Microsoft:

in late 2012 and early 2013 when the first discussions started about the purchase and Nokia was the desirable object Ballmer and Bill Gates had been wanting to have for a decade…

2003: Hey, Nokia is awesome!

ten years pass

2013: Hey, remember how Nokia was awesome ten years ago? LET'S BUY THEM! What, it's currently a complete has-been in the mobile world? NEVER MIND BUY IT ANYWAY!

idiots.

Without having read the article, let me guess. 10GB monthly cap?

Oh wow, 150GB. That'd almost be worth something, if it didn't come with satellite's usual BS. But hey, at least they've realized that offering high speeds with a stupidly low cap is fucking pointless.

Still a rumor about Star Wars, but this news item last month makes it look that way.

Wonder how George feels about that, and if he had any say.

Speaking of revisionists, I got nervous a few weeks ago when Peter Jackson talked about going back and inserting more footage in Lord Of The Rings. Don't be a George, Peter!


It's good news about the original trilogy coming out, but honestly, this:

The goal is to release A New Hope, Empire Strikes Back, and Return of Jedi in their complete, unaltered, original form without the redone special edition SFX.

kinda has me disappointed. Some of the SFX they cleaned up was really quite well done and it fixed some pretty glaring errors in the original. I'd have been happy with them leaving the upgraded SFX in, as long as all the retarded story changes Lucas made got axed.

Even so, I'll still buy it, of course, once it reaches a decent price level. I'm going to guess Disney is going to sell it for at least 50 bucks at first, and probably more like 80...

We should do a Blues pool. How high will the funding be when they finally release a "release" level version?

Hrm, what exactly do they consider the original release? Through Steam?

Is there some release AFTER the original that isn't the Director's Cut?

? The original Dragonfall release? And now they've added missions to it, and overhauled combat, and overhauled the UI, and are re-releasing it as a director's cut.

As long as it's optional and there isn't a quest midway through the game where you have to win a fucking card tournament, I don't care.

If there's a mission like that, though, I sure hope someone will mod that shit out of there. That annoys the crap out of me.

Microsoft can't keep just tossing around money to buy exclusives,

Sure they can. After all, the rest of MS makes more than enough to make up for the $50-100 million morons like Spencer spend on exclusivity for a single game.

If the Xbox division ever was to get split off, then suddenly it would have to stand on its own merits, and it'd likely just die in a year. (which is also why they won't split off, because they love suckling on the Office money teat.)

Half our homebrew apps run on IE (and refuse to run on Chrome or FF), so we're stuck with using IE 8. I probably clean malware at least 15-20 times a week...

And I try to explain to people "Only use IE for these apps, if you use the internet, please use Chrome or Firefox", and they don't get it.

The pacing was messed up where you'd end up finding 3-4 save crystals within an hour long session then you'd end up on a road or a trail or some other thing that totally was 'not' a corridor and couldn't save for at least another hour of grinding to get through.

I've played through X probably 9 or 10 times, and there really isn't any location where it takes that long to find another save crystal... I think the Mi'ihen High Road and Mushroom Rock are two of the longest sections, and if you bash through you'd get to the next save crystal in maybe 10 minutes.

Obviously I'm an expert at FFX, but even if you had never played it, if you just kept walking (and since it's a corridor, you can only go one way) it'd take maybe 15 minutes.

I gave up on it in that maze cave where you had to find all your party members before escaping or they'd be lost for good.

You mean the one that Yevon throws you in after you break up Yuna's wedding? That maze is like four rooms big.


FF 12 on the other hand was excellent in my book and pretty much the perfect combination of 4,6, and 7 that I'd always hoped for.

I hated FF12. I kinda liked the removal of the battle screen, but the story was pants, the characters were pants, and if you disliked X's grinding, I really have no clue how you liked 12, because in 12 you had to grind monsters with 0.0001% drop rates to get certain items.

But obviously to each their own.

The naval combat in AC:BF was some of the funnest most inventive gaming i have ever enjoyed. With no naval combat this time around i see no reason for me to be excited

Methinks AC:Rogue is the game for you.

not if you're a PC/next-gen gamer... AC:R is strictly PS3/360!

Ah, I knew it was 360/PS3, but I couldn't remember if they were releasing it on the PC too. Thanks Fantaz.

It may not have the greatest past, but that view when they come over the hill and you see that MASSIVE city just beyond it made me perk up.

Let's hope it'll be awesome, so we can all forget that EA abortion called Sim City.

I'd have considered maybe just making it a better browser, but yeah, just renaming it is much better.

Like the food industry tried to get the FDA to sign off on renaming High Fructose Corn Syrup because there was such a negative connotation to that name.

Tons of easy mode features, can they be turned off?

Most of the UI stuff can be turned off, yeah, and you can just not use some of the other stuff if you don't want to.

Also no one ever see's the assassin jumping up buildings or jumping down? He's like eternally a ghost?

Well, how often do you look straight up?
