News Comments > Sniper Elite V2 Free Today
14. Re: Sniper Elite V2 Free Today Jun 4, 2014, 21:04 Beamer
 
Only free if you install immediately.

Crazy. Maybe genius, maybe annoying, but it definitely makes me likely to play it now. Otherwise, it'd sit in my list uninstalled and unplayed likely forever.

I started Dead Island recently and, after spending an hour searching for 10 bottles of booze, I may be done with it. Maybe I'll switch to this.

Morning Cutterbait?


Given it's own section, I think it could turn out to be pretty entertaining. Spread across the site, you wonder why he anytime the word "hunt" is in an article his comment is "Mike Hunt?"

1) It's his game he can do whatever the fuck they want in it.
2) The game has a dark side. Seen several npc's who frequently internet search the word 'rape' Not to mention the human trafficking part of the game.
3) Seen lots of funny shit like 'Steve White' who was a gay black guy (there is a joke in Steel Magnolia's 'All gay men have track lightin'. And all gay men are named Mark, Rick, or Steve') So I was laughing pretty hard about it.

1) Of course he can do what he wants with it
2) I have no idea what your other points have to do with it

I can see people saying that the kid is just trolling, and clearly he is, and clearly he's doing it well. But the whole "AND THERE'S NOTHING WRONG WITH KILLING WHITE PEOPLE!?" argument just has nothing to do with anything they're saying. It's a standard knee-jerk reaction to a knee-jerk reaction that I've come to expect from someone who either posts judging an article on the title or makes a non-sequitur "joke" everyone scrolls past ignoring.

Actually a tablet is ideal to play turn based strategy games. There are at least two games I would like to own an IPAD for. XCOM and Hearthstone. Sadly just those two games (one of which I have finished) are hardly justfication enough to buy such an expensive toy.

Yup. Strategy games tend to be more like chess, and there's little in the new X-COM I think would be hard to do via tablet. Grenades, maybe, but grenades were oddly hard to do via mouse, as well.

It's too bad. I had a Windows Phone provided by my employer for a number of months and quite liked it. The interface blows the dated one from iOS out of the water. My girlfriend has a Lumia 920 and swears by it. Given that there are as many Windows Phones in the world as there are Macs and per capita, its growth is surging while the other two are saturating, it kind of feels like a decent sized market to ignore.

It's a big market in countries that aren't big app buyers, and a small market in ones that are.

There are only a few apps I miss having. At least that I'm aware of. I'd kill to finally have Tinder, but whatever.

I do agree, though, that after using WP8 for a few days iOS feels outright ancient. It may have better features (actually, it absolutely has better features), but the actual design theory, getting anywhere, doing anything, or finding any information in iOS just feels like a hassle to me.

But going around killing and robbing white people is perfectly acceptable is it? Kotaku clickbait is just always wrong on just about every level.



The clickbait section really needs to become a permanent feature here, and every Kotaku article can immediately and automatically be relegated to it.

Can we have a section for every time Cutter comments on a title rather than an article?

Because the article is about a YouTube video titled "Making the World a Better Place" in which a guy walks down the streets in Watch Dogs and kills only black people, latin americans, muslims and gay people.

Cutter's comment makes it seem like he thinks the problem they are commenting on is that black people can be killed. No, what they're commenting on is people making videos in which they seek out minorities to kill and brag about under the guise of "making the world a better place." Even someone as "almost always positive" as Cutter has to admit that's fucked up.

It's also not at all related to the game, and would happen in any game, but that wasn't Cutter's complaint.

Yeah those words never would come out of a game designer or developer. Just front office suits. They should know better than ever trying to sell entertainment with such business words.

Someone has never been to GDC.

"dressed head to toe in designer casual wear—Ralph Lauren jeans, pristine white Y-3 Yohji Yamamoto sneakers, and a crisp Captain America T-shirt."

I barfed in my mouth a little - do people really look at someone and notice what brands they wear?

Many people do. Why do you think brands are so prevalent? I go out of my way to find stuff that's logo free. I'm not opposed to wearing branded material but not if I'm buying it. Want me to advertise your product you can pay for it.

Most of the good brands are logo-free.

I am one of the few people that actually liked the first one. Even in multiplayer. I will give this a go. Not a pre-order or a launch day purchase though. I liked the original but at the end of the day it was at best a competent shooter.

Than again, I liked Bulletstorm too. My taste in shooters doesn't seem to be line with many others if sales are any indication.

Bulletstorm was great. The marketing for it was crappy.

I never played the original Homefront, but I will say this looks interesting. I like the idea of asymmetric warfare playing from the underdog position.

I made it about 10 minutes in Homefront before I hated it. Gave it another 20 to work itself out, still hated it. Hated it.

Bulletstorm I loved.

This is coming from an interesting dev. Maybe not a great one, but an interesting one.

Not for me; growing up in NYC, there were two types of summer camps, day camp and sleep-away, my parents could only afford day camp so I was basically bussed upstate NY or to NJ for the day to explore a camp site.

Yup.
Lots of kids had a day camp to keep them occupied during summer vacation. Parents worked, so kids had to be sent somewhere. I only did sleep-away camp once, a 4 week one in Vermont or NH or some such, but did 3 years of a day camp that consisted solely of trips to the beach, the mall, the movies or the arcade.

Defensive, and responses aren't responses but attacks.

Though I guess I can't criticize, there are more than enough times I feel what someone is saying here is so asinine that it isn't worth engaging them on their points because they're too stupid and too far off to learn. But then again, I tend to use that on people who don't use points, rather they point to stupid articles.

Why would a free people want these regulations to go into effect? As if the government can be fair and balanced? If you think liberals are, you are sadly mistaken.

Oh good, another status quo idiot that would have been anti new deal had he been alive then. You're brainwashed, god knows by what, but it's government regulation that keeps us from being like China, where god knows what's in your food and everyone thinks they are doing something wrong if they aren't taking advantage of you for profit, even if it may kill you.

I still consider DAoC one of the all time great MMORPGs.

It's one of the all time greats even if you didn't play it. It is the game that broke Everquest's dominance in MMOs. It was the MMO that started addressing the unnecessary tedious elements found in EQ that people hated. That in turn started the trend of all MMOs after it to continue removing "tedious" elements from gameplay for better or worse. <cough WoW> It changed the MMO landscape dramatically. That's on top of having arguably the best PvP of any 3D MMO. UO is still legendary being the first graphic PvP MMO.

RIP DAOC. For me AC1 Darktide and UO were by far the best, but DAOC was definitely up there as well.

Such a shame that MMO's followed the EQ/WOW formula, as we may actually still have decent games in that genre today.

RIP mythic.

No RIP to DAOC. In February another studio took it over. That studio was founded by a Mythic founder, the one that led DAOC development originally.

hahahahaha

Holy crap, that's the first time I've ever seen YouTube annotations be useful. 99.999999% of the time I just curse that I can't default them off.

Some of the stuff is definitely shocking, because games like GTA4 and SR3 did it better years ago.
Other things, like the broken hydrant shooting through the bed of the truck? I'm not entirely convinced we'll see something like that change anytime soon. Setting the physics for the water to realistically interact with the truck would probably be a several day task for one person. Is it really worthwhile? Once it's used in one game, I'm sure that the company will use it for every game they make, but still, who is going to say "well, this is a good use of my next 15 hours?"
