So we finally reached a point where developers don't automatically DROWN their games in bloom right off the bat, and now we have the community working to put fucking bloom right back into those games where it was left out?

Let's make up our minds fellas.

How can these guys (PC Gamer) get excited about games like Ass Creed or Dragon Age, Far Cry4

Advertising dollars.


and fail to even mention games like Elite Dangerous or Killing Floor 2.

No advertising dollars.

Yet No Man Sky is on their list which as far as I know wasn't even shown for the PC only PS4.

That sounds like the usual excellent work they do.

PC Gamer, more like Console Port Gamer

Nah, if they wanted to be accurate, they'd just call themselves Big Publisher Marketoid Gamer. It's funny how they've now made a new rule that if people "lambast the integrity of the PC gamer staff", they'll be banned from the forum.

It must be so frustrating to constantly get called out for shit you actually DID do and have been doing for years on end. (ie, sell scores for dollars, claim you're going to be tough on shitty DRM, and then conveniently forget to mention the shitty DRM in Spore, then EA's latest and greatest new title.)

I'll still read them for the previews and such, but trusting a PC gamer review is like fucking a Ho-Chi-Minh hooker bareback. You take your chances.

(though the penalty that lead to the tying goal last night was pretty vexing).

Fixed games were very evident this year. Need only to look at any of the Wild games to see how atrocious and obvious the calls were....

There's zero chance the Stanley Cup Finals were fixed to end in five games.

Zero chance.

Unlike the World Cup so far this year, where the refereeing has been so lopsided as to be truly laughable. It's like they're not even bothering to hide it anymore.

Now they are mostly filled with antisocial beings glued to screens.

So, basically like the rest of the entire world then.

Cafes don't want wifi users anymore, because they sit there for five hours nursing a bottle of fucking water. And they take up a table where they could also seat a family of 3 that wants to have lunch.

It surprises me it's taken them this long to finally do something about it. Panera is always full of wifi leechers, and you're standing there with 30 bucks worth of lunch, and you have no place to sit.

From what I remember of the video reviews of SD and the fighting aspect of it looked like QTE city. Wait for opponent to flash, press button to counter.

You CAN play it that way, but you don't have to. Once you've got a few moves under Wei Shen's (best character ever for a game like this, btw) belt, you can fairly easily kung-fu your way through a group of enemies in style. The counter is just there to not get hit while you're doing so.

So what does SD have to offer if the driving is crap, and the fighting looked meh to me.

I think it has a great story, and some excellent missions. It also, imo, has great fighting. Videos don't really do it justice, it's very fluid, very satisfying. Wei Shen turns into a total badass with just a few extra moves, you really feel like Bruce Lee mowing down hordes of unskilled fools.

But yeah, the driving is horrible. You won't be driving around for fun in SD.

They would really need to work on the vehicle controls if they wanted me to double dip on this again.

Yup. Driving is absolutely terrible in SD. It may genuinely be the worst driving experience of any of the big gta-like open world games.

Which is a shame, because the rest of the game is fantastic.

That made me choke on my water.

It's Friday. Why are you still drinking water? Break out the Scotch!

Never drink Scotch while reading comments. Otherwise you waste good Scotch when someone makes a funny.

Well that's as good a reason as any to drink.

You need that complicated a reason to drink? There's a 5 in the clock, man, drink on!

No one expects the qunari Inquisition!

Hrm am I going to have to finally break down and buy Dragon Age 2 on sale somewhere, so I can play DA:I? Waiting for reviews currently, but it at least SEEMS like it will be superior to DA2.

No, you don't have to. Once Dragon Keep is finally up (they have three months left, typical EA undertaking), you can use it to create a completely custom-state savegame where you can choose whatever option from both DA:O and DA2 to import into Inquisition.

This is on the frostbyte engine isn't it, which means no modding like DA:O , so I'm stuck with some of those Derp looking faces for the characters

I'm sure someone will find a way to cram some better textures in there.

Yesterday, the Al-queda-backed Sunni rebel group ISIS overran Mosul and Tikrit. The Shia-dominated Iraqi government made a plea to Iran who sent over the Quds forces (their elite units, like our Marine Corp) to help fight them. Currently Obama is mulling whether or not to provide air support for the Quds. Yes, we're contemplating providing air support for our arch enemy in the region.

Question for you alls: Is there a game out there that captures this kind of insane strategic choice that this political situation has produced?

Doom.

You're being followed by a Cyberdemon, who gets into it with two Hell Knights, while all of them are being long-distance sniped by shotgun sargeants. Who do you shoot?! YOU MAKE THE CALL!

And at least this is more in Abrams' wheelhouse, so I think they have decent odds of being pretty good.

And on the other hand, the new Star Trek movies...

I thought the first was quite good, actually. The second one was a good action flick, it just didn't have anything to do with Star Trek other than names.

If he makes that type of film in the Star Wars universe, where it fits, it should be good.
