I hope they sell 10 million PS4s there and not one Spybox. I want MS' stupid face rubbed in it so hard! 'Do you like that, Stevie? Do you? Huh?'


Ah, Cutter. In every post about Apple he talks about how buying Apple means you hate America, but then he says he wants everyone to ignore an American company and buy from a Japanese one.

And, I'm sure, he'll see no issue with this logic because both these devices are made in China, yet only one of them has created a fairly large amount of jobs in the US.

He claims his diatribes come from morals about manufacturing, but it's just his petty opinions on which companies take his hobbies most seriously.

It's not just EA, Microsoft really needs this game to be a massive success and you can bet they will leverage their major industry presence to ensure it is. From a business perspective it makes sense.

EA has little skin in this. They're distributing, which means they only make a bit of money. They have no long term investment here.

Microsoft doesn't, either, but Microsoft needs something to sell consoles desperately. This is a much, much, much bigger deal to them than to EA. EA will make a buck or three per sale, which in the long run isn't much for them. Microsoft has the possibility of selling a console per sale.

Wow, I thought it would take a year or two for XBones inferior hardware to really lag behind what was being done on PS4. I was really, really wrong. It seems like ALL of the third party, cross platform games run better and look better on the PS4 already. Crazy.

well to me the next-gen versions don't look that much better than the current gen ones. just the textures look a bit better but it looks perfectly playable on a $99 Xbox 360. you need a 1080p TV to really notice the differences and still a lot of ppl just have 720p screens. still not worth getting a $499 X Bone or $399 PS4 just for this game.

Xbox One is supposedly able to become more powerful over the cloud, but who knows if and when that happens.

They shouldn't look that much better.
Again, go Google what the CoD launch title on the 360 looked like. Ass. Pure ass. It didn't look even remotely like what Ghosts looks like. I mean, the difference is like Mario 3 to Mario World drastic.

When someone calls it a crazy conspiracy theory, you know you're on the right track. Where's there's smoke, there's fire.

That's funny. I heard you weren't actually born to a woman, but rather cloned from the preserved wang of Adolf Hitler.

Do you deny this? If so, I must be on the right track!

Why is that I can not find this Thief game anywhere to buy for PC on a DVD? Its all download only... and yet the consoles get their disks and PC enthusiasts don't? Wtf.

Here at Amazon. Amazing, they are charging a premium for it now as we get close to a release of the new Thief. I saw this numerous times on amazon for $9.99, and lower, several months ago.

Or here on eBay.

Or you could just STEAL it from someone.

Good luck.....


That isn't Amazon selling it, it's someone selling it on Amazon, so I'm not surprised at the markup.
It's only $13 if you buy it used on Amazon, again from a 3rd party. Still jacked up.

Amazon has the digital copy for $6.99 http://www.amazon.com/Square-Enix-Thief-Gold-Download/dp/B009IXL5FO

I like how the Satanic Church has come out against the Craigslist Killer.

They aren't about killing.
They say they are atheists.

Why is satan used then? Do they not know what that represents? It means they are deeply religious and killing, well that's just one method.

It was just funny, she I think tried to link to them and they said hell no you crazy bitch. Our satan is a good satan.

I mean, it's a remarkably stupid name, but you need to learn what Satanists are and what the Church of Satan is.

It isn't devil worship. It's an atheist philosophy that uses Satan as a symbol of carnality and basically an FU to organized religion. They don't believe in Satan, let alone worship him.

Right it is as stupid of a name you could use. I still find it funny though, she says she killed in the name of satan, so yes lets ask what said worshipers of satan think. But oh yeah that's right it's all a mock, they are mocking everyone. I giggles.

As for Cutter's, I'm not so sure a lot of them aren't aware, things like the Bohemian Grove are disturbing. Why are people like that even doing things like that? Again it's all a big mock on everything? They sacrifice fake bodies under a Owl Statue dressed up looking like some sort of Klans Man? Really? CEO's, Presidents etc.. do juvenile stuff like this. Mind boggling.

Well, the funniest thing about the Church of Satan is their rule that you can't be pretentious.
Isn't their entire organization violating that rule?

Me doth think the shill protest too much.

Did you... did you just call a guy a shill for the game he's a producer on?


Man, I wish that Cutter guy would stop shilling Cutter posts!



shill [shil] Show IPA Slang.
noun

1. a person who poses as a customer in order to decoy others into participating, as at a gambling house, auction, confidence game, etc.

2. a person who publicizes or praises something or someone for reasons of self-interest, personal profit, or friendship or loyalty.
verb (used without object)

3. to work as a shill: He shills for a large casino.
verb (used with object)

4. to advertise or promote (a product) as or in the manner of a huckster; hustle: He was hired to shill a new TV show.

That help clarify what shill means, sport?

I was calling it redundant. He's the damn producer. He made this game.

That clarify why calling a man that made something a shill for that thing is a bit redundant, sport?

If you are not 15 years old you are definitely payed by EA.
If you say that a mech shooter should move like any sprinting man, that having tiny maps is good and that is wonderful idea to get a reward when you kill some ppl ( as if geting a BFG wasnt..)and the lack of depth (no hiding, no camping...too tinny maps for some flanking,too low no of ppl that makes strategy/tactic nonexistent...)its good then go play it. But better try play some Quake1 or even 128 players matches of Delta Force that we already had like 20 years ago and youll see what a good shooter really is.

Ah ofc there are some decent newer good ones but lately cause of the idiot console kids they make them way too easy and with too few ppl to be any real challenge

Number of typos and misspellings: at least 4.
Yet still calls others "idiot console kids."

It's really just average to good IMO, some people here are playing it up way too much. I logged 20ish hours with the beta and thought the movement and general flow of the game is excellent but the hitscan weaponry is all samey, the AI grunts are a waste of space and I thought the Titans themselves were extremely boring to use.

20 hours. In 6 days? You did over 3 hours a day?

I think that says a good amount about how fun it is. Based on that, I'd lean towards the high end of your "average to good."

People whined endlessly about the AI, but it turns out they're exactly what I expected - cannon fodder to blow the crap out of. Seems fun.

I'm pretty excited for this game. Excited enough to buy an Xbox One? No, though I still expect there will be a livelier community there than on PC. I'm not even excited enough to download the demo. And I probably won't buy it on the 360. Not even sure I'll ever play this.
But it looks like the most entertaining action FPS in a while.

descender wrote on Feb 20, 2014, 12:36:
There should simply be more viable options for fighting a 4 shield ship. If you don't come across the right weapon shop, most of the ships don't come with the firepower you need to take the boss down.

If finding an ion cannon (which alone is not enough) and a multi burst laser is the only way to take down the level 4 shield (or really if any specific weapon type is required for success) then it's not a well balanced fight.

There are a few mods that add a great deal of variety to the weapon loadouts, increasing the ways you can approach the boss fight and improving the game.

If you have only ever played on easy, and you have been able to buy every weapon you come across or "fully load your ship"... then this conversation is probably not for you.

Yup. A big part of the luck is finding the right weapons.
I agree, it does suck that there are basically two ways to build a ship to beat the second boss round (which was the problematic one, right?), but that's also part of the game being rogue-like.

It would definitely be nice if other builds could prevail. I remember the first time I beat the first boss round. I was heavy on missiles and drones. Then came the second boss round, which neuters missiles, and I was crushed. Not only did I not know there was a second round, but I didn't do any damage. At all. They shot down every missile I launched.

After beating the game on Normal I started playing on Easy more often than not. Easy just takes some of the luck out of the equation. The game is still a challenge, but you'll make it to the boss maybe 25% of the time instead of 10% of the time.

I wish they would re-tune the boss fight... there are very few weapon loadouts that can actually defeat the boss. Beam heavy, missle heavy or high damage lasers are nearly impossible to use against a level 4 shield.

nah thats wrong, i was using all that kinda stuff

you need ion cannons to bring down the shields, also you gotta target systems tactically so they stay down or get his weapons so he cant hit back

actually theres a system to beating any of the ships, once you learn it the whole game is pretty easy - thats one of the reasons this advanced update sounds so appealing, since they are making it much more complicated and potentially more challenging because of it
No, I'm with him. If you have 3 3-burst beam weapons you'll probably beat the end boss pretty easily.
If you have mostly missiles you're dead.

Europe - 3,930,000 sq mi

I looked it up before posting

Right, but you are comparing the CONTINENT of Europe with the COUNTRY of the USA. Now subtract Russia, who is not part of Europe as a collection of countries, but rather a transcontinental country.

I mean, otherwise you are comparing apples to oranges. Sure, the European CONTINENT is bigger than our country, but the North American CONTINENT is bigger than European CONTINENT by quite a bit as well.

Yup.
EU Size: 1,691,658 sq mi
Because I assume you meant the EU. That's what most people mean when they say "Europe," I think.

Uh-huh. I'll believe it when I see it. This is just more PC pandering while the 'next-gen' consoles work to get market share. Once that's done, all these supposed PC converts will all quickly suck console dick again.

No, it isn't pandering.
It's that, by number, indie devs outnumber AAA devs by a good margin. 64% of those polled plan to self-publish their games. AAA devs don't do that, so at least 64% of those polled were indie devs.

Indie devs can't really do consoles. They're costlier to get equipment for, require learning new platforms, and require paying for certifications. On top of that, they don't sell as well because there's less word of mouth and the console digital store all suck to some extent. Steam isn't great for finding new games, but it beats the hell out of XBLA.

So no, no pandering. Just a lot of indies, and indies are PC devs first.

At best it's one, unless you somehow think Ars, reporting on the WSJ is pushing an opinion when they tell you Verizon wants to be paid. There's a difference between that and saying Verizon deserves to be paid.

Now, I'm sure you'll throw that back at me, the difference is I disagree mostly with the armchair quarterbacks, you disagree with the people that had business plans and massive amounts of VC backing from people infinitely more knowledgeable than yourself.

Were there huge issues with 38 Studios? Yes, of course.
Were they guaranteed to fail, even if they got that $100MM they were denied? No, don't be stupid. Or, don't be yourself and think you're the only smart man in the world.
Did they lose significant talent when they moved? Yes.
Did they end up with even more employees with a higher talent level after? Also yes.
