I didn't realize the game actually has different kinds of Titans. That seems pretty cool.

you can pull your money out, just send a request for a refund and they honor it.


That is actually very, very commendable.

But Respawn just found out in December that it wasn't coming out for the PS4!

What?

"For us, in the long run, as an industry, giving away content like that is just ... *makes retching motion* "

I fucking love it. I can just picture senior executive jackasses at Microsoft spontaneously self-combusting at the thought of having to give away something for free.

The Elder Scrolls Online - Ask Us Anything

Why a MMO?

MMO Money Greedy

I watched some footage of the beta last week and it looks like crap, graphically and game play. Maybe it's an MMO thing, but the video I was watching was a guy and 3 or 4 people doing a quest. There was a part where they had to talk to a guy in a jail, do something for him, then release him from jail. While they were doing the quest, other parties were doing the same quest, and they had to wait in line while other people were talking to the guy before they could talk to him.

Yep, apparently it's the same in the starter area. You need to gather up something to exit, and if someone has already grabbed it, you get to sit around and wait for it to spawn again!

Spawn camping! We haven't seen that since in fucking AGES. God this game looks terrible.

Will this have official servers? Or is it all peer hosted?

Half assed port, or developed with PC in mind?

It's official servers. It's all hosted on MS's CLOUD MAJICS! for the bone and the 360. I'm assuming the PC version will connect there as well. Edit: Apparently it's being hosted on EA's servers, so expect major fucking horseshit on launch. Why Respawn decided NOT to host on the Xbox servers (probably the best bit about the entire xbone environment) is a mystery for the ages.

As for the port thing, it's a game heavily, HEAVILY pushed by MS for their new console. Need you really ask what it was developed for?

I noticed today that all Titanfall reviews are embargoed until it goes on sale. I wonder if that's a sign that they're bracing for some disappointing reviews, or if that's common practice even with good games.

Typically that means that it really isn't as good as everyone's hyping it to be, and they're worried about pre-orders canceling.

3D is pretty much a dead technology at this point, with manufacturers announcing they're no longer producing 3DTVs.

Good.

Its hard to understate how incredibly important Titanfall is for Xbox, Yusuf Mehdi, chief marketing and strategy officer for devices and studios at Microsoft, said in an interview.

"We are getting our asses handed to us by Sony in sales, our machine is badly underpowered, it's a hundred bucks more expensive, and people STILL won't believe us when we say that Kinect is awesome, even though it really is basically just the same lame camera we shafted everyone with on the 360.

"We need a great game so that people ignore what a shitty console we made, and just buy on blind hype alone. Nothing else will save us."

I still haven't finished Witcher 1, let alone 2. I'm trying but it's an older title with lots of little quirks. I'm half tempted to just watch a video summary and move on to Witcher 2.

Yeah it's a bit of a slog to get through at times. I finally gave up and just used a guide, which helped a lot.

There's a lot of story in it, and I do think it's fun to have played them both in order, but you could probably fairly easily skip 1 and just play 2.

Glad to see Banished is still hanging on quite well in there.

BTW Blue, Dark Souls II, not III.

And there's an R in there, unless "Dak Souls III" is the Bostonian version of the game, or something else entirely.

Then it would be Daaaaahk Soouhls.

How good is Archer season 5? The new setting sounded it could be a shark jump.

It's fun. It's just plain old Archer, basically, though the settings are new and the meta-plots are a little different. But they're still all just fucking with each other in absolutely brilliant ways.

The last episode where he tries to recruit Kenny Loggins to sing at Lana's baby shower was just brilliant.
"What the shit, Kenny Loggins?!"

"Hey guys, we bought 3D Realms, Apogee! We're going to do a new Duke Nukem game, though the rights belong to Gearbox, and failing that, we're going to do a new Blood game, though the rights belong to Atari."

Solid plans there, fellas.

Speaking of awesome RPGs coming out this year, not sure how far they are from release, but Skywind may just beat all of them.

Okay, now that looks very cool. Remind us again when finished?

No idea. They're done with the entire world map, so now they're porting over quests. It may easily take another year.

Really? Because it sounds to me more like a situation where CD is only comparing its current sales to its past sales and S-E is comparing them to the industry rather than their personal history. It's a whole hell of a lot easier to make calls for celebration when you're only comparing yourself to your past rather than your current peers.

When the game sold six million copies in its first month, SE pointedly say that it was "less than expected" and "a disappointment."

Now, apparently, they have given to go-ahead for a sequel. Why? So they can be disappointed again?

That's not to say 6 million sales is anything to scoff at or that the initial 3 million in the first week were anything short of extraordinary. But how does it compare to something like the last Uncharted game?

There is also this thing called reality. Not every game can be Uncharted, GTA or Call of Duty, and not every game can sell like it. Any publisher that pretends their game is going to soar to such heights, history of the franchise be damned (and Tomb Raider had never sold more than ~4 million copies), are a bunch of delusional fucking morons that, again, have no fucking clue what they are doing.

I think this is a great idea for awareness. I don't know how many times I've been out to dinner and seen people sitting across from each other engaged in very little to no conversation with their faces lit up by their phones. It's pretty sad.

My wife did that to me the other day, and I literally said "Are you fucking kidding me?"

She didn't even realize she was doing it anymore. If she had to unplug for 24 hours, she'd probably wilt.

I would totally be up for unplugging for 24 hours, if it wasn't for the fact that

A) My job involves being plugged in.
B) Battle of Lion's Arch is running, yo!
