So it's basically like Crysis, except for the huge levels and the free-form gameplay. And the finite number of enemies.

Ghosts didn't have infinite spawns. I'm not expecting this one will.

Will someone sue RSI for failing to deliver Star Citizen within two years?

Someone may try, but the big difference is that this KS has gone a year without update.

If Sterling is a racist for not wanting to hang out with black people while watching (mostly) black people play basketball then George Clooney is a racist for not wanting to hang out with black people while going on vacation.

Ooooook.

Oh come on, did you listen to the recording? 90% of it was her egging him on and manipulating him into saying shit that sounded like he didn't even mean to say. I think it had less to do with her hanging around with black guys and posting pictures on the internet with them and more about making him look like a cuckold.

"Bring them here and sleep with them, that's fine, just don't post fucking pictures" said the married man to his mistress.

That's my point, he is a cuckold but he sounded like he just didn't want her putting it out there on the internet so that he would have to explain it to other people, same with not wanting her to bring them to the game.

He's old, fat and has prostrate cancer of course he's not plowing her field anymore. Doesn't seem that much to ask that she not flaunt her relationships with other men on the internet or at his games.


He's sleeping with someone while married to someone else.
That's hardly a cuckhold. That's an adulterer.

I've actually never played a Treyarch CoD (even though I own BlOPS2),
I thought their games were the best CoD titles.
Even today Blops2 is the best one out. Ghost was terrible.
My favorite CoD game to date is made by Treyarch it is World at War. Quiet a few years old now, but still fun.

People often say that, but they had to ape the MW multiplayer for a reason - it was really well done.
And, contrary to the opinion here, it actually changed substantially from title to title.

It just sucked in Ghosts.

So what happened with Treyarch? Did they get absorbed into IW? or are they still around?
They are still around, they've made Black Ops 2 about a year and a half ago. I assume next year's CoD will be theirs.
Although their PC dev left them so I guess it will be some other group working on the PC port.

Yup. CoD is on a 3 year cycle now, with 3 dev houses, so hopefully that means the extra year will let them to innovate instead of iterate.

I mean, we'll see. I have little faith in IW now. I've actually never played a Treyarch CoD (even though I own BlOPS2), and who knows about these guys making this Halo prequel.

But an extra year can't hurt.

isn't Sledgehammer the ones responsible for the last piece of shit "Ghosts"?
No that was Infinity Ward

wow, I'm pretty shocked that they've fallen that far from their heyday.

Their most experienced, and probably most creative, members all went to Respawn. They were gutted, and this is the result. It was less a product from an experienced devhouse and more a product from a startup.

With that out, they'll probably improve, much like Respawn probably will. Hopefully considerably, because Ghosts fixed a few problems while taking a giant step back on more important issues.

A good and lengthy single player campaign would go a long way with someone like me though.

The Ghosts single player campaign was the best they've had, I think. No infinite spawning, and the set pieces were more involved and required you to do more.
It was decent. A 7.5/10. And it was the right length. A "lengthy" single player campaign in a game like this, or in my opinion, nearly any FPS (even if it's open world, FC3 outstayed its welcome) is a bad thing. FPS games start getting old around 10 hours, usually.

Ghosts multiplayer was atrocious, the bots were actually very well done but the maps were horrible, the perks didn't feel right, and the killstreaks were a step back from the over the top chaos of MW3.

Do you guys still get microphone-spamming 14 year old bigots, or are you basing this on your experiences 5 years ago?

I played a decent amount of Ghosts and an enormous amount of MW3 and very, very rarely found myself in a game against 14 year old bigots, or really any bigots. There were some on occasion, but far less than there were in the early days and far less than when I played hours of CS a day back in like 1999.

Reopening an accidentally closed tab seems much harder.

Right click on any tab "Open closed tab" (paraphrased, my firefox is obviously not in english ,p)


How else did you do that before the update?

History would give you a list of the last 5 closed tab. Every browser lets you right click on a tab for the most recent, but FF was the only one I remember giving you a list of more than just one.

Elaborating on BluRay not being healthy, Sony released their financials yesterday and claimed that they will not make enough money with BluRay to cover the expenses of the equipment. Sales are too slow and rapidly slowing.

Sneak preview at a Steambox here.

I haven't paid close attention to these, but this seems to have some features I wasn't aware of. It also seems they're soliciting feedback.

Pay by screen size? Your joking right? Hahahaha. Funny stuff. Umm, I think I'll just stick to renting the Blu-Ray version for a $1.00.

They already sell SD and HD copies now. They'll just add 4K into the mix, at a higher cost.


I think he means physical screen size, not resolution.

It makes some sense. The experience of watching it on a phone is entirely different, and crappier, than watching it on a 40' screen with a projector (assuming you have that option.)

However:
1) This is damn near impossible to enforce
2) This is dated thinking. People understood, when resolutions were different, why buying a copy for their 320x240 iPod was cheaper than buying a copy for their TV. This is no longer really as understood, as it's the exact same thing you're buying either way, and it's just the damn thing being used to play it, which is a customer input, that's changing

Only way I see this working is if it segregates by store, meaning that things traditionally hooked up to a TV have one store with one price and things traditionally held in your hand have a different store with different prices. Buy it from Sony, Comcast or Xbox and it's $9.99. Buy it from Android's store and it's $4.99. Sure, smart consumers will just HDMI-out their tablet, but plenty wouldn't bother. The biggest issue is that Apple has just one store. I guess they can limit things artificially, and knowing Apple they may go along with it, but I don't see it going over well.

I still don't care what the popular opinion is/was, Halo PC multiplayer was significantly better than whichever Unreal Tournament came out at the same time. Its vehicles are still my favorite in any online shooter.

Wow. Just, wow. I don't even know what to say to that. UT2K4 was a revelation. Halo looked and played like crap in comparison, being more than 3 years old by then and console-y.

More than 3 years old? It was one. It came out in 2002 for console and 2003 for PC. And it was more innovative. The vehicles in UT were terrible and the weapons/modes were just a slight evolution. Sticky grenades and the warthog alone made it a more entertaining game to me.

Yes, I know it's an unpopular opinion, but like I said, I disliked that Unreal. It just didn't feel very good. And didn't it still have some stupid clown?

What bothered me about Halo so much was how such a potentially great PC game suffered because of being a console game. The recycled textures (used because of the Xbox's limited memory) were so bad that they had to put arrows on the floor otherwise you wouldn't realize you were heading back the way you came for several minutes because everything looked exactly the same. Otherwise I thought the game was brilliant for its time.

I don't remember arrows on the floor. As a result, I remember levels like "The Library" (I think) being a nightmare, with you only knowing if you were going the right way because you had new The Flood to fight, and The Flood sucked.

But multiplayer was magnificent.

Blu-ray is healthy enough, the problems are:
-Lack of content being upgraded to the format
-Overpriced when movies are released, then pricing drops dramatically to a proper level
-The DVD format still being used (and sometimes exclusively) for new content

Streaming visual quality can't keep up with Bluray. Add in bandwidth caps and lack of ISP investment in infrastructure and Bluray has a healthy future.

- Bluray isn't particularly "healthy," as neither the media nor the players sell well
- Lack of content being upgraded is due to a lack of demand, see point 1
- This is how most media works. Even video games. You make so much money on the early adopters it's hard not to keep that pricing in place
- The DVD format still outsells Blurays

Streaming quality can't keep up, but I've yet to talk to someone who says that they can't watch a movie on Netflix because they've hit their cap (Comcast doesn't even enforce their caps), but streaming is "good enough," given how much cheaper and easier it is, and given that, outside of children, people typically only want to see a movie once or twice.

I consider my several-hundred DVD collection an albatross around my neck. Every time I move I have to lug that crap around. It's pointless. For nearly anything I'd want to watch again I can get it streaming and not have a giant mess of plastic cases I want nothing to do with. The entire collection was a monumental waste of money.
