I wonder if there will be a single person that will buy this game when it releases. It seems like every single person on the planet and their dog has already backed it.

I haven't backed yet, and neither have my two dogs. So that's three copies right there.
Yeah but you are not guaranteed to buy it when it comes out.
What if last minute they decide that the game can not be played offline?
Just sayin

That's a good point!

I feel differently. Joe was a fuckup who got whacked because he was a threat to the organization's stability and opsec. I was glad Joe was killed.

You heartless... gangster! Shakefist

I loved Mafia 2. I replayed it over and over so many times I lost count. I just really like the story, characters and environment - especially the 50s part. I was fine with it not being open like GTA.

I also hope they continue the story in 3 where 2 left off. I hope Vito's friend Joe didn't get whacked after all.

That really irritated me. I FULLY expected a DLC to take care of what happened to Joe. They really left players hanging with that, especially since Joe was one of those rare characters you actually gave a shit about.

Things I remember about Mafia II

- Pretty good story. (a bit cliche, but it's a gangster story, so eh.)
- Mediocre gunplay.
- Fucking Quicktime Event fistfights.
- Fantastic music (once the 50s kick in.)
- Gorgeous graphics. Gorgeous city. Gorgeous cars. Decent handling. Fantastic open world area.
- And literally nothing to do in it.

Fix the QTE shit (by dropping it), and put stuff to do in the city, and it'd be a game for the ages.

I really wouldn't put too much stock in the word of some low rent PC assembler.

I took the plunge last year and purchased an Origin PC (with many discounts) and I haven't been upset at all.

After 25+ years building PCs, there comes a time where you just want to piece together a system and have it work without fiddling, so I bit the bullet. I know it's a cardinal sin to purchase pre-builds, but in this case it was well worth it, and in the end I came out about 600-700 cheaper than if I were to piecemeal my own system together with the same hardware.

You did? How the heck did that happen?

I always think I'm going to have someone else build them, and it's NEVER worth it financially. It's always 300-400 bucks cheaper to get the parts.

Steam Machine dead, that is a pretty big fail, they get all hot and heavy about MS's Walled Garden(tm) and we need something better. Do a shit load of linux work, fumble around with a controller for forever, had a huge splash two years ago with at least 6 manufactures showing off their systems and nothing. Fail. Stick with Steam only, because really it's the only thing you are doing that gets released.

It doesn't say that the concept of Steam machines is dead, the name is just dead, and seems like it'll be replaced by something else.

It was painful reading those twitter meltdowns. How did baseball players get so stupid?

Human beings are stupid. Here's a story about a dude that meant to send a pic of his junk to his GF, and ended up sending it to his whole snapchat contact list, including the underage girls he coached. Honest mistake, but game over.

A buddy recently asked me if I had snapchat, because he wanted to send me some pics of his new home and that was the easiest way to do it. And I don't have snapchat, I stay far the hell away from it, because my wife teaches high school, and the mere association of those two things looks dodgy. It'd be really easy for someone to go "So, are you snapchatting your wife's students??!"

So why in God's name would you have underage girls on your snapchat contact list? That in and of itself screams "BAD!" to me.

Oh my God, the FCC is actually doing something useful. Of course, this is a small victory compared to the net neutrality shafting we'll get in the next two months, but hey, any victory against AT&T/Verizon and their miserable, you-fuckers-can't-die-quick-enough ilk is worth mentioning.

Edit: Based on the link below, I'm beginning to think Tom Wheeler has been Body Snatched...

Wheeler seemed to dismiss the "hybrid" Title II idea he floated several months ago and embrace Obama's more direct approach.

I'm... I'm speechless. If this is true, holy hell, I hope AT&T and Verizon and all those other fuckers fucking CHOKE on it.




By the 25/3 standard, roughly... what, 3% of America has broadband? FEEL THE POWER.

Take all that funding away from the fucking telcos and Verizon, who do NOTHING with it, and allow rural areas to provide their own fiber networks with that funding. That is the ONLY way we'll get rid of the horseshit digital divide that Big Corp has shafted America with.

probably continues the tradition of "minimum" specs being the ones that allow you to run the game, not actually play it in any acceptable way

dont matter cuz im building a new machine for it anyways

Are you not going to wait for Skylake processors?

They're probably from somewhere else, and your doggie just gathered them up and put them in the kitchen. I always find stuff in my bedroom that the dogs dragged in from somewhere else.

My onboard sound was starting to have issues about a year or so ago, so I switched to a SB card and it's been... decent, I guess. Still, after all these years, has that good old Creative "Windows has forgotten that you have a sound card" bug that forces me to system restore every single fucking time it happens (usually once every few months or so.)

It amazes me that they manage to stay in business.

"I have to say, everything in my—it should be that you should not be able—if a parent doesn't want her kids to buy violent video games, that should be the parents'—it should be that this law was OK, I guess is what I'm saying."

Apparently the ability to make a coherent sentence is no longer required to serve on the Supreme Court.

Knowing Ubisoft, this film will fail to actually display properly in half the theaters, and run at 12fps in all others.

Kidding aside, this could actually be a great movie, and I love Michael F. Assbender, so I'm semi-hopeful.
