So the second is really good? Ive ignored these games on account of the first one being a horrible showelvare piece of shit, which somehow still managed to sell well...

V2 was my first experience with the series, and I really enjoyed it. It was fun sneaking around, and then guiding bullets into people's eye sockets/ball sacks/right lung, etc...


I just did the tutorial. Did the main game play like that? Sneak a few places, have it load and move you rather than simply being one large map, you kill your one guy, see a slow-mo shot of him being hit, then suddenly you have to kill 30 more guys next to him, then go back and kill 30 more guys by your extraction.

That was kind of fun once, but seemed like the type of thing that would be repetitive. Like Assassin's Creed 1, it felt like doing it once was enough for me.

Dude...they were asking the draftees "so who are you wearing?" as part of the post draft interview. That is just.....sad.

As always, money doesn't buy good taste.

I think in this case it has the opposite effect. It seems they cared a lot more about their clothes looking expensive than good.

Like a bunch of computer nerds at a lan party that seemingly spent more effort on making their case glow and flash than on making it run fast.

That was my thought, too. There's got to be a law against that.

Are you guys serious? Lobbying is LEGAL in the United States Congress and you are seriously asking if bribing your employees with pizza is legal??? MUAHAHAHHAHAHAHA...

This isn't lobbying, this is asking/telling your employees to do it. If you don't do it, you wont get pizza?

I dunno. Shady, but then again, BB is a joke and a shit company.

Don't be Cutter. It wasn't "do this or no pizza." When is it ever that? Didn't you ever go to a free whatever with free food? There were billions of them at college. Pizza is just the way to get someone to listen to you.

As the article clearly states it was "hey, come over here, I've got pizza to attract you. While you're here, take this pamphlet and consider following its instructions!" It's transparent, and few people probably paid attention, but hey, you want to give me free pizza? I'll stand by and nod my head and pay no attention for 45 seconds while I grab a slice.

People play Minecraft because they like it, it is pretty much the opposite of a game where conformity is any concern. Everyone tends to play it differently and make different things, no one is conforming to anything. That's the whole point of Minecraft, it is almost structure free and lets people shape it to what they want. That's not conformity, thats individuality.

I've got news for you about the people who play Minecraft, many of them are just like you. You should try the game sometime so you understand it before you dismiss it because you see a lot of people streaming it on Youtube. It would be fine if you just didn't like Minecraft for the gameplay but you're just saying its bad because some vague number of people like it which is something I would expect to hear from a teenager. I don't even like Minecraft but I don't tell myself I'm James Dean for not playing it.

You're a conformist unless you think just like Cutter and agree with him on every single video game. And, for the record, he never dislikes anything because it doesn't appeal to him, rather, everything he dislikes objectively is terrible, which must be repeated regularly all over the internet.

Most over rated shooter ever. So glad I passed on this
Well, I got to agree with you. It was overhyped to hell and back and it obviusly feels like a beta, they are still adding basic features for the game which should've been included since the beggining... BUT, being a 95% SP player and 5% MP player I loved Titanfall on the 360 (which looks crap by the way) cause its fun, frenetic and varied. I abandoned it when I reached LvL 30. Playing as a Pilot and as a Titan on the same map multiple times is fun.

This game will be great in 6 months, when they patch/polish it and add some more maps, AND it's on sale.
And in six months no one will be playing it.

That's the huge problem with multiplayer-only games, or really any multiplayer game. People tend to go where there's a community, and as a community falls it speeds up. It's hard for anyone to compete with CoD, TF2, etc.

However, it's also impossible to do when your game ships missing features. First impressions matter more here than anywhere else. They really, really screwed that up.

I still remember watching an iPad (or laptop, more likely, I guess) in front of me on a plane. I could see it in the window. The player had built a ridiculous, insane minecart system. Very involved. It took me a few minutes to realize he was "cheating," in that he had noclipping turned on and probably infinite resources, but that just turns it from a loose game to a pure sandbox like legos.

It took me a few more minutes to realize the player was somewhere between 8 and 11.

Of course they care. Where do you propose they go if they get laid off?
Best Buy may or may not treat them well (I'm sure it treats them legally, which, according to some, is all the free market demands), it isn't as if retail jobs are growing on trees right now. Malls aren't hiring. Most stores aren't hiring. If they are, it's part time.

Which is the problem with assuming "all the free market demands," at times like this, people are so desperate for any income they don't care if it's fair income.

People have this weird notion that things are guaranteed to be dumbed down to be on consoles.
Because that is usually the case. Minecraft is the exception not the rule.
Just look at some of the older PC games that came out with a new fresh version recently also developed for the consoles. Games like Supreme Commander, Command and Conquer, or Thief. We also have games like Watch Dogs that got gimped in the graphics department in favor of the consoles, and the list goes on.
I think people rightfully so are concerned about games that are primarily developed for the consoles especially console exclusives.
Of course on the flip side we have PC exclusive games are are pretty dumbed down also like X-Rebirth, but thankfully not too many of those are in existence.

I didn't say it was the rule, I said immediately assuming something is dumbed down isn't right. This game seems most comparable to Minecraft. Minecraft succeeded by not being dumbed down. Why would anyone just assume this is going to be dumbed down?
People aren't saying "it'll probably be dumbed down, so I'll keep my expectations low," they're saying "I've already written this off because it's dumbed down."

Was the new X-COM dumbed down?
And who gives much of a shit about graphics? Big deal, the lighting wasn't as good in Watch Dogs. Who even knows if they would have had it right if it was PC only? Maybe it's that I'm older, but I hardly care about graphics these days. We've been "good enough" for a while. I'm happy to have to upgrade my PC less often. Good gameplay trumps good graphics, and most genres don't need to be dumbed down on consoles these days. The new ones aren't going to hold us back on loading for a long while. Most games can function well enough with console input to not have any major changes.

NamecaF wrote on Jun 25, 2014, 03:24:
It's honestly like looking for a needle in an ocean of pure excrement.

And the exact same thing can be said about every single other facet of the entertainment industry as the ability (and technology) to create became commonplace for the masses. Books, Radio, TV, Music, Film, it all 'went to shit' once creating within the medium became available to the masses.

Except, it didn't. Finding a hidden needle is not something you do by looking, it's something you do by feeling. But you need to be willing to immerse yourself in the poo to get the gold.

Note that you haven't actually said what you liked. Only what you don't. Maybe that's why you (implied) have such a hard time finding something 'good'.

I feel as if discovery is infinitely harder in Games than any other industry.

Take books. I go to Amazon. I probably enter a book I liked and I look at what other people bought. Most of it is crap, but I can read the plotline and I can read reviews and it helps me make a mostly educated purchase in a small-ish amount of time. And, ultimately, I can read the book in 6-10 hours. Typically, even mediocre books I feel like I got something out of.

Movies? Do any movies come out that aren't professionally reviewed? And they're such cultural milestones that there's no shortage of word-of-mouth. And it's only 2 hours of your time.

TV? Likewise, plenty of professional reviews and plenty of word-of-mouth. The time investment is longer, but you can get a good sense and bail after 30-60 minutes no worries.

Music? Plenty of word of mouth, listening only takes between seconds (if you skip into a song) or 3-5 minutes, etc. With Spotify I find new bands every week while at work.

Mobile games? Jesus, it's impossible to find anything. Stores are wholly impossible to navigate. Reviews are short and full of typos because they're written on phones and often they're written by idiots looking for entirely different things in their games than I am, but it's hard to tell because all they say is "4 stars, this game rules, I can spend so much time plying it!"

Steam? Slightly better to navigate. Slightly. I still never, ever go to Steam looking for "a game." I go there when there's something I want, or when there's a sale. It has ZERO user reviews. Zero. None! It sometimes links to Metacritic, but their user reviews are no better than the ones in an App Store ("Zero stars, EA fucked me once, I'm not buying this shit." "Ten stars, SimCity is the best series ever, I can't wait to play this!") Playing a game takes time. I need to download it, install it, try it, get past the learning curve, etc. A lot of investment to see if you like something. Videos on Steam aren't overly helpful. Screenshots aren't overly helpful. The short blurbs aren't overly helpful. Let's Plays aren't helpful because they're 40 minutes of some guy trying to be funny as he rants about the configuration screens.

This board is the only way I have to genuinely learn about what indie games are worth playing, and even then it feels like such a risk that I rarely bother.



I would love a job working for Valve to improve their shitty discoverability. It's Steam's biggest area of improvement, I think. Figuring out if something is good often requires a bit of a dialogue. Movie reviews kind of work like this. Amazon reviews, where people often respond to other reviews and also leave comments, absolutely works like this. AAA games get reviews and discussion everywhere. But the 70 greenlit Steam games a week? Who knows what's in there. Who wants to take the time bothering to find out?
XBLA had the same issue - the first year or two of XBox I loved it (but not the Indie section, which was too hard to navigate and the 3 or 5 games I tried sucked so bad I never bothered.) After that, though, XBLA got unwieldy. So many games came out that the professional reviews mostly dried up. The reviews on XBLA were worthless, as were the screenshots. It was impossible to tell if it was a near-classic, like Shadow Complex, or utter crap, like most everything else. No discoverability. Result: I just assumed it was all crap and stopped bothering.

Minecraft has sold more on PC than on both consoles. Also, lumping two platforms against one is a bit disingenuous.

Right on that number:
https://twitter.com/pgeuder/status/481812186390880257

And it's more than two consoles, and it's combining PCs and Macs, but regardless, it's sold more on consoles than PCs. It's not dumbed down. People have this weird notion that things are guaranteed to be dumbed down to be on consoles.

*meh* as regards to that, the PS4 is capable enough that most limitations based on the machine shouldn't necessarily make the result a bad game on PC. Early Xbox360 and PS3 games were fine for the time on PC (if the original game was good to begin with, and they did a decent job bringing it over)

Would the game test a top line PC game now? No, but that's not what defines good gameplay.
It's not because of the hardware, it's because of the audience.
SC or Elite are not being developed with a console-centric mentality, which normally would "dumb down" the experience.

Normally, maybe, but not always.

Yeah, this definitely has red flags all over it.

And after reading that interview with the devs, I lost interest in it.

The fact that it isnt truly procedurally generated content and is instead specifically crafted (so everyone's going to experience the same wildlife, flora, geography, etc of every planet) was a bit of a let down.

Not to mention the fact that their focus is simply being MMO exploration and space fighting rather than missions and a story/campaign bummed me out.

I was hoping it was going to be like a procedurally generated sci-fi Skyrim-type game with single player story/campaign, side missions, random jobs/quests, star system exploration, planetary exploration, space and land battles against AI enemies, AI NPCs, etc.

Maybe one day

Probably no day. At that point, coding the rules and logic for a world that has rules and logic is far more difficult than just building the world. I mean, the best we have today is Minecraft, which is still the exact same experience for everyone, just in different ways. It's a brilliantly generated procedural landscape full of all the same things for everyone.

And, as a whole, I think procedural generation is utter crap for anything other than games where you basically build your gameplay. If Minecraft had missions they'd be vapid and terrible. As it stands the procedural world often has you spending a whole lot of time exploring things that go nowhere. The fun is the exploration, for a time. Put that into a Skyrim type game and suddenly all the utterly pointless caves become a huge burden.

And how about holding publishers and developers liable for not fixing their hacked games? Nah, getting the government involved is about revenge, not fixing things. I sympathize with the desire for making them serve criminal sentences but really, it won't fix much and it won't work anyway. Vote with your wallet and complain when there are problems, that will work.

Exactly. Company is to lazy and cheap to fix their game so they get the taxpayers to deal with it? That ain't right.

It doesn't really work like that. And I'm shocked people here think it does.

I mean, there's an entire industry out there dedicated to creating hacks. Any time something is fixed, they find a new way. The only way to stop this is to completely take control of someone's computer and pay attention to everything they're running. No one wants this, and even that isn't entirely foolproof. Or to stream everything like Gaiku or whatever that other one was, and again, no one wants this and someone would still find a way.

Basically, there's no way to prevent hackers from hacking a game. None. Can you guys name a single game that hasn't been hacked? A lot of Xbox Live stuff was pretty hacker-free because, well, because they controlled the entire experience and could detect hacked systems with a reasonable degree of accuracy. And most of this board kind of hates them for it.

If the hacks were built-in cheats, like turning on god mode in multiplayer, yes, I'd agree. But when people are using external programs they're buying solely to cheat, I think that's a bit different than "lazy devs need to fix their lazy game!" Didn't we learn from CS back in the day? A new version fixing the cheats goes out at noon and the guy selling the cheats has his version out by 2.

I've heard this will be less a reboot and more ignoring all the shit that has come. So it will probably assume that Predator happened. Maybe Predator 2, but probably not.

And you kind of have to ignore Predator 2. At the end of Predator a lone survivor is found. People probably don't take him seriously. His story is either forgotten or, for the purposes of making the film better, remembered as a bit of an urban legend and bit of lunacy.

In a new Predator sequel, you can have an elite forces team encounter him again. Probably in the desert, since that's where our elite forces are these days (but it's way less interesting.) The Predator likes hunting dangerous prey, so this makes sense. In further sequels, now that two teams have confirmed the Predator's existence, it can be taken more seriously, baited, whatever.

But you need to ignore Predator 2, which sucked and had endless witnesses and would create a world where everyone believed in aliens, and you definitely need to ignore Aliens vs Predator, which for some reason made creatures we had to travel dozens of light years 200 years in the future to find actually have been on our home planet longer than we have.

But would it be worse than Lucas' original idea to have a cameo by fucking N-SYNC?

I mean, for all how Tom Cruise is a phenomenal wackjob, he is a pretty good actor, and he usually makes enjoyable movies. (haven't seen the sci-fi groundhog day yet)

I don't think having Tom Cruise in Star Wars would make it somehow worse. Had he played some pansy-ass Jedi who gets cut down like a bitch in Episode II, it wouldn't have made that movie worse.

I think the only problem with Cruise is that he's so iconic, that you get taken out of a film by his mere presence, regardless of what he's doing. I had the same problem with Jackson as Mace Windu. Although, I could see Cruise as a pretty awesome bad guy, if his ego would let him take such a role. And who knows, maybe he'll have on some Darth Maul style makeup and we won't even recognize him.

As for N-Sync, there's precedent. I've liked both Timberlake and Wahlberg in films, so I don't think it's totally out in left field. And you could argue that they've had plenty of practice acting on stage in hundreds of concerts, b/c you know they're not really singing up there.

He likely knows this and would just be an alien under heavy makeup

Well, when you're a monopoly in most markets, you can do whatever you like. Sounds like they've got some lawyers on it though, so here's hoping for a good outcome, and some punitive damages for Verizon as well.

Are you certain this is Verizon's fault? They didn't sell these devices, Google did, and Google was making the 2 year claim.

That said, it's probably Verizon's fault. But Google is probably also somewhat guilty.

No, good point. Re-reading I see that these were sold from the Play store, not from Verizon as I'd initially assumed (since most LTE devices are sold by the carrier offering the service). You're probably right and Google advertised 2 years, but only secured one from Verizon.

Also reveals my kneejerk assumption of Verizon guilt.

I mean, it's not an entirely unfair knee-jerk reaction. My assumption, based on nothing, is that Google and Verizon likely reached an agreement of 1 year with a second free if a certain number converted to paid customers. That didn't happen, and Verizon opted out. It makes Verizon jerks. But it makes Google jerks, too, for advertising something not set in stone.

And that last part is all we really know - Google sold something that wasn't necessarily true. But Verizon is probably jerks. Verizon is kind of always jerks.

$20 for a supermarket steak?!? good god, hope it was at least a Prime cut. at my local i can get a pack of two choice cuts for about $8, not even marked down. and the best steak i've ever made was just last week, bought a single from target, not even labelled with USDA cut type, and it was amazing. or if i really wanna go cheap i can go to stater bros., buy a single unlabelled steak for $4.

The best supermarket steaks I've had are filets from Whole Foods. Their grass fed filets were $27.99 per pound, and "grass fed" seems to be a buzzword, but they were also from a farm about 20 miles from where I bought the steaks. It was a small farm one of my favorite restaurants also used. That was the true distinguisher. Insane price, though.

Out here everything seems to be Painted Hills, which I've found to be pretty good but not incredible.
