Oh Cliffy B.

Fool me once, shame on... shame on you. Fool me... can't get fooled again.

Why is it so cool to hate this guy? What bowl of cheerios did he spunk in?

I've enjoyed every single game credited to him. The original Unreal still is in my top 10 of all time. Gears of War was great unless you got hung up on the whole console exclusivity thing.

Just don't get it.

Destiny went from being a game I knew absolutely nothing about to a pre-purchased obsession after playing it this past weekend. I was just about to hit the level cap for the beta on my third character when the servers went down last night

I don't even usually like console shooters, but there's something really addictive about it.

Totally agree. It didn't really all click into place for me until Saturday, and then I was totally hooked. I'm going into withdrawal today, and the break between when the beta ends and Sept is going to feel like forever.

I thought I liked the lock, from the alpha, but this time I'm totally hooked on the hunter.


Throwing your knife into someone is one of the most satisfying things. Definitely going Hunter

I played the Destiny alpha, and I came away impressed. It was an enjoyable game. Preordered after the alpha, was on the fence beforehand. I wish it would come to the PC, but it's the first game my PS4 has gotten any action from that wasn't TowerFall.

Oh, and my PS4 died during the alpha. Had to roll out and buy a replacement, which died as well. Still have my launch day 360 for all the hubbub about that red ring shit, I'm surprised that two fucking PS4s died within a week of each other (conditioned power, too)

Good lord man, what are you doing to them? And each one should come with a one year warranty.


Yeah, you literally cannot own a PS4 yet that isn't covered by the manufacturer's warranty.

http://us.playstation.com/support/warranties/ps4/index.htm

I never said it wasn't covered under warranty (matter of fact, see below -- both are RMA'd). I'm just impatient and bought a second unit to get through the Destiny alpha

They're both currently in the RMA process. Sony doesn't cross-ship and I didn't want to miss out on Alpha weekend, so I bought a replacement with the intent of selling to a friend at discount when I got my RMA back :p

As far as what I did, no idea. Great ventilation, one died during an online match of Destiny the other croaked during 4 player TowerFall.

Both had the same symptoms -- powered off, then wouldn't power back on for more than 1-2 seconds at a time. Internet says make sure you're using good power, did all that. Same deal.

On the bright side, I've got a PS4 for the office when the RMAs come back. Never know when you'll need an impromptu towerfall session

It's hard to say whether Sony or Microsoft came out ahead, both made compelling arguments for the futures of their consoles.

But Nintendo? They're so out of touch it's disgusting. They don't even get an honorable mention

While the ME trilogy is one of my favorite series of all time (actually, as a series it might be THE favorite), is this really all you got, MS? Porting 7/4/2 year old games to the bone?

How is this MS? Bioware owns the franchise, and there was a similar leak about this coming to the PS4 as well.

Just curious, but why do you rate it as overpriced and average?

For me, the novelty wore off very quickly, and then there wasn't much substance left to keep me coming back. It's highly overrated, and I have a lot of way more fun games to play right now that don't cost friggin $60.

Oh and then they go and fuck gamers over with $10 DLC that should have been included with the game instead of rushing out a game with less content than the average modern game. Typical EA.

It's not a terrible game, it's just not as great as their hype machine would have you believe.

Appreciate the reply. From what it looks like, they're giving new game modes away for free:


Earlier this month, Zampella confirmed that Respawn was going to add in new content that it wanted to ship at launch but had to put on the back-burner due to time constraints. He made no secret of the shooter’s free DLC, and confirmed that private matches will come for free, and that the game will not implement microtransactions.

The novelty also wore off for me, but it was replaced with fine tuning my play. I'm thoroughly enjoying it still, which is why I asked.

And I also think it feels closer to Unreal Tournament than Call of Duty. Personally had my fill of "tactical" shooters with CS 1.6, and have been jonesing for a more arcade feel to a mainstream shooter.

Exactly what I was going to say.

+1 EA for once.

Um.. EA wasn't responsible for this. It was the devs. Fuck EA.

But actually, this is a pretty cool idea. Still won't get me to buy this overpriced, average game, but cool idea nonetheless.

Just curious, but why do you rate it as overpriced and average?

The real demon core is a pretty crazy story to read about. It claimed the lives of two physicists (Harry Daghlian and Louis Slotin) during the manhattan project and eventually was used in a nuclear warhead test

PAX 2013 was full of MOBAs. In a year or two, there'll be a glut of them on the market, and players will continually try and return to League/Dota2

What I would give for a proper Space Hulk sequel or even a remake/reimagining. A proper PC game though, like the first Space Hulk.

I mean this is a pretty faithful representation of the physical board game, which is what they were aiming for.

I'm a huge fan of the original DOS game, but this version is warming up to me. I just wish they spent a little more time on visuals, because it's not that significant of an upgrade from the DOS version running in dosbox

Then I realized it's Unreal ENGINE 4.

Ah, well.

I loved Space Marine, it was a refreshing AAA look at WH40k. The Space Hulk that was released recently is pretty awesome, but that's because I love the board game and old DOS rendition. Outside of that, it's not a really good title truth be told

News Comments > Magic 2014 — Duels of the Planeswalkers Released

Given that 90% of your post history is negative, I don't hold much hope in a reasonable conversation with you.

That said, from the Steam page:

* Deck building: Open virtual booster packs of Magic cards to build decks and battle in single-player and multiplayer modes.

* Sealed Play Mode; introduces deck building

That mode is brand new to DOTP 2014, and allows you to custom build your deck. You're correct that in previous versions you were only really allowed to sideboard in cards to pre-constructed decks that were limited, but that's not true to 2014.

Moving on, regarding your comment that the game doesn't even work properly: there are only 2 threads in the first few pages of the Steam discussion around the game crashing on launch. Personally, it launches fine on my two machines.

Is the game perfect? No. There are legitimate criticisms, such as the sealed deck slot limitations. But the game serves as a great introduction into Magic for those who haven't been playing for years, provides a great pick-up-and-play option for Magic vets, is available on all gaming platforms (the iPad version is my favorite), and it's remarkably cheap.

I would hope that in the future, before you take to a public forum to criticize a game that many folks put a lot of effort into making, that you take the initiative to play it first.

Ah Magic the gathering 20xx +1 (No idea why they add a year to each game for the past 3 years)
Terrible game, you think you would get a Magic card game that is balanced, nope! You are DEAD wrong.
Lets see what is wrong, oh yes you can't customise your deck, sure change a few cards around but no real customisation.
Decks are broken, weak, imbalanced or downright stupid.
They charge you to unlock decks, oh and if you reinstall the game you LOSE ALL your progress.
No fast forward button, tedious animations.
AI cheats (well basically since you cant customise decks and everything is locked, you are stuck with shitty decks vs AI with better decks)
Game doesn't even work properly, half the people have launch problems.
Limited decks, yes you have to PAY to get dlc which are just more limited decks. Magic 2012 is the same as Magic 2013 which is the same as Magic 2014...exact same game and engine EXCEPT different decks and cards. So why would you keep buying the new game? OH YES, you can't customise the decks or cards, so basically you are paying for the same game, same dlc cards for slightly different imbalanced, predetermined card decks.
Just stay away from this broken rubbish game, wait for a game like Hex or the real magic the gathering game, this game oozes with imbalance, money grabbing leeches and sub par quality.

Why does nobody say what exactly the problem is? It's nothing a major shit-storm couldn't solve I am sure.

Ill take a wild guess. The Forgotten Realms license. Or more importantly the greedy fucks at Wizards of the Coast who want a piece of the action and Atari who cant afford to pay them off.

Definitely a wild guess, with typical wild guess accuracy. Your culprit is Atari, not WotC in this case.

People have very short memories. Sony is out for the early "HOORAY" and support.

Remember backwards compatibility on the PS3 and how that was flushed down the toilet 6 months later?

How about Linux and an open platform?

Publishers have been given access to the technology and will pressure Sony to comply. I expect (and the rumblings already indicate as much, with Sony saying DRM will be up to publishers in a follow up) that this tech will be on the PS4 within a year.
