It's not that similar to AC, come on (I've been playing AC2, AC3 and AC4 the past couple of months)

I've played probably 500 hours of AC, and to me it looks basically exactly the same. The walking, the running. I think if you were to put a frame by frame comparison of the climbing/shimmy'ing side by side, there'd be no noticeable difference.

I guess it's possible that they both mo-capped a guy who happens to climb the same way (or maybe that's the only way to do it). But I doubt it.

1) Because it's $100 cheaper. (People didn't seem to have much of an issue buying PS3s when they released for more than the Xbox One's price point of $500)

Please. That's what you're going to throw up? The Xbox 360 MURDERED the PS3 in sales for the first three to four years of their respective lives.

As for your last comment... Really???

I'm sorry your purchase of an Xbone makes you feel that you have to defend that decision so vigorously. You made a bad call. #dealwithit.

Games are fun, gamers suck.


Sadly, yeah. Well, at least in most cases. I had great fun running along with a very good RP guild as we kicked the shit out of Caledon Forest dynamic events last night in GW2.

(Yes, I know it's a lvl 15-30 zone. Sue me. )

In fact, I was amazed by how lively most zones were. Even the two starting zones I visited had around a dozen players in it in most areas. And I jump to a character who I had left in Caledon Forest over a year ago, and to my surprise there's like 50 players running around.

I think the "EVERY ZONE IS EMPTY EXCEPT ORR OR FRACTALS!" rhetoric we tend to hear every now and then is really rather exaggerated.

It's not just that they made it play like Assassin's creed. The animation looks to simply be lifted completely from the AC series. The way the main character climbs and shimmies alongside that rampart is 100% AC movement. That's not just a coincidence, methinks.

Old cans of beer (or of pop, or whatever) tend to get the metallic taste in them. It always really pisses me off when I open the first can of a 12 pack of Diet Rite cola and it tastes like it's been in the can for 247 years, because you know the other 11 will taste like shit too.

1) Because it's $100 cheaper.
2) Because it runs equivalent games far better.
3) Because it doesn't have a built-in NSA FapCam.
4) Because it's not sold by Microsoft.
5) Because it's available in a lot more countries.

Come February, when it becomes available in Japan, PS4 sales will rapidly outshine Xbone sales.

Just about the only reason MS is selling consoles at all is because of Stockholm Syndrome.

Btw, that video looks terrible. Ugly texturing, small draw distances, drab brown shit everywhere, uninteresting spell effects.

15 bucks a month for that? I want to return to Morrowind, but I think I'll just wait for Skywind instead.

using duck duck go and thinking about how to best get rid of gmail... but I can't find any decent email hosting that is not in the US... Europe has many, but they are all listed in the NSA documents are "easy to pwn" or they cost money. And I will NEVER pay money money for emails.

There is no point in switching email unless you go to an ultra-encrypted provider. The entire email system is a sieve of security issues, so if the NSA wants to read your email, they will, no matter where you are. (again, the encrypted variety not included, but those typically aren't free.)

The government doesn't care, tech leaders. So you lose 18 billion of revenue a year? What do they care? It's not as if you pay taxes over it to begin with, nor that it's going to affect how many of your jobs you outsource anyway, so why would the government care?

"We need to be able to rebuild trust with our users," said Marissa Mayer, the chief executive of Internet portal Yahoo!.

Yeah, you don't have to worry about that, Mayer. They never had any trust in you to begin with.

I don't get co-op Skyrim either, to be honest. There is nothing so difficult that it needs a second player, unless you put it on Legendary diff, and then you just wind up rezzing each other all the time.

In the end, co-op Skyrim would just be you and a buddy each playing Skyrim in different areas, while you're chatting with each other. You can already do that.

I'd rather play GW2 than co-op Skyrim.

Fed judge rules that a downloader's IP address is not proof of identity.

My question is, why did it take 15 years to come to this conclusion?

It didn't, actually. They made similar rulings back in 2007 or 2008 or so, IIRC.

As for the independent review, I'm sure our government will give exactly no shits about it, and continue its programs as they currently are.

Also, 320 THOUSAND fucking requests? We need to just close the NSA, because they've utterly lost the fucking plot.

I hope it either snows like mad during the Superbowl, or it's just decent weather. The last thing I want to see is it being cold and/or miserable without the added fun of snow, and getting 3 hours of running the football for 3 yards and a hundred 3-and-outs.

That said, if the weather is bad, Seattle will win. BEEF MOE plus Seattle's defense will beat Denver's running game/defense.

If the weather's good, I don't see Seattle hanging with Denver's offense.

The interviewer grinded until one arrow destroyed a Dragon in Skyrim... why does that not happen in any Elder Scrolls I play? Sounds like a mod to me. I'm at level freakin' 40 in that game just using axes and shields and I still can't one hit anything, more like 30+ hits while I end up with 1/4 of my health after just one encounter. Its the same shit that made me stop playing Oblivion as I leveled up I could no longer survive ANY encounter as a light armor thief/assassin characters - One Cave Bear paw swipe, dead. Fun.

Wuh? You leveled up and got weaker? What the hell were you doing? Were you just boosting all non-combat related skills while ignoring your combat ones? That's an issue in Oblivion and Skyrim, because the critters level with you, but while you're leveling up, your combat abilities stay the same.

Even so, at level 40, if you've at least bothered to keep wearing the latest and greatest armor, and have put some points into the skill, you shouldn't be getting one-hit by anything, especially not in Skyrim. Even if you're playing on Legendary.

(Btw, there was a bug in early Oblivion where the difficulty was wrongly calculated if you never touched the difficulty slider. In essence, leaving it at the middle made the game crank up the difficulty incrementally until shit would just ruin you. If you lowered it by just a pip (or raised it even), the bug went away. They did patch that after awhile, though.)

If I disabled Deadly Dragons I'm sure I could pretty much one-arrow everything but Ancient and Legendary Dragons, because you outpower them like crazy.

During the course of the game, players can roam through a brothel environment in which several prostitutes are depicted topless. The central character has the ability to spy on couples engaging in sexual activity (topless characters); suggestive moaning and dialogue can also be heard. Some settings depict opium vats or characters under the influence of the drug. The words f**k and sh*t can be heard in the dialogue.

Gee, I wonder why you got an "M" rating. "Well, sure, these kind of things have always led to an M rating, but in our game... uhh...they... uhhh... they're meant ironically!!"

Anyway, it won't make a single bit of difference to who buys and plays it, so there's no need for them to worry about it.

(At first I thought this applied to ESO, my bad.)
