After watching a good 20 minutes or so from an hour long gameplay w/commentary video that IGN had posted, I was able to see this myself rather quickly. It looked highly repetitive of go here, kill him, choose a new target, go kill him, etc. I know there is a lot of fluff in between but that's the idea.

There's really not a lot of fluff in between. It's basically just... killing Uruks and collecting meaningless shite.

I truly think a lot of enthousiasts today will look at this game in retrospect later and think "Blegh, it actually sucked.". I have enough respect for the PC gamer to believe this.

The funny thing is that while I know you are right, this is the mark of my favorite type of game. I just gone done with a 30 hour playthrough of Batman-Origins, and the lion's share of that time was in repetitive fist fights I just couldn't get enough of and collecting those stupid little green boxes with the cell phone markers on the map. Why? I have no effin' clue, but I was so engaged while doing it and didn't ever stop to ask myself the simple question 'Why?'. So I guess I like wasting my time, but I am a proponent of the saying "Time you enjoy wasting isn't wasted time". So I really want Shadows of Mordor in spite of what you say. I know I'll love it.

News Comments > DICE: BF4 Launch "Absolutely" Damaged Player Trust
12. Re: DICE: BF4 Launch Oct 8, 2014, 10:17 Prez
 
...I am actually surprised that they did remember to change BF4 from BF3 in the copy and paste apology statement.

Okay that was funny!

I had zero issues with the BF4 launch.

But maybe that's because I refuse to use Origin and thus never tried to play it. Still, no issues.

So was that!

I think Blue should only report every 10 million increase because otherwise we'll have SC updates every second day.

Well who can blame him - they make great reads! I love the snide but clever comments that the daily Star Citizen thread brings with it. A SC post just seems to bring out the best in the Bluesnews community.

Watch Anita Sarkeesian

Hahaha not fucking likely.

Nice. Her 15 minutes are up.

I want to watch just to see if it is actual slander she is "facing down" or just the social justice warrior definition of "slander", i.e. proving her wrong with, you know, actual facts. But I just can't - seeing her will just ruin my day, as will reading the spin by whatever corrupt activist media outlet is championing her bullshit this time.

I highly doubt I would notice the difference between 900p and 1080p on a TV, but I am pretty sure I would notice the difference between 60 and 30fps.

It's funny, but I'm the opposite. I don't really notice lower frame rates as much as lower resolution.

Maybe it's a difference in the way our brains process stuff? I am one of those people who can't watch 3D because I get a headache and eye strain trying to process it. The majority of people have no issue with it.

This is the problem with media. Everyone is so desperate to be "first" (or at least not "late"), that being correct is often relegated to an ancillary concern. Is putting out your review the same time as 20 other publications/websites a week before a game's release somehow advantageous as compared to putting out a review a week after its release? I just don't see it as such. Yet you hear stuff about this crap all the time. Of course, you never really know who (if anyone) is succumbing to the pressure to alter their content and get the "scoop" - the same scoop that 20 other outlets are getting at the same time. That's a big reason why the media outlets I prefer are the ones who are never in the initial batch of reviews for new releases.

It’s time for video game journalists to engage with #GamerGate, however difficult that may be. Even if this hashtag fades into oblivion, the mistrust and toxicity between game writers and their readers will persist. And that’s not healthy for this industry.

Actually it's only unhealthy for the gaming press. It doesn't really affect the industry, and it doesn't hurt gamers. Let them continue to be toxic towards their audience; it will just mean their end that much sooner. As far as the rest of the discussion, yeah I'm burnt out. I can only refute the continuing fallacies and point out the obvious misdirections of social justice warriors so many times before I get worn down. But any way you slice it Leigh Alexander is a worthless sack of shit.

It didn't help their cause that their servers are so unreliable. I spent 4 hours building rocket engines on a small moon to use it as a giant intergalactic planet-crushing missile only to have the server die and disconnect me about a cunt hair before impact. It was soul crushing!

Yeah, this is highly welcome. I don't play it much (except coop over the net) because of the always online garbage. This wasn't supposed to come this soon according to recent updates, but because of the huge outcry by the community they put it on the fast track. Kudos to them for listening to the community anyway.

It’s highly unlikely that you’ll become infected with Ebola. So what are you so afraid of?

As long as the virus doesn't mutate, there's very little chance of a widespread outbreak in a developed country like the US according to the experts. However, also according to the experts, the longer the African outbreak continues the higher the chance that it will mutate, and such a mutation has a decent chance of making the virus spread easier than it does now, which could potentially be a HUGE problem.

I'm ready for a zombie apocalypse if the mutation is of the "28 Days Later" variety.

I agree that the issue has gotten somewhat convoluted (partially by design on the part of the self-righteous crusaders who like building strawmen then later cutting them down) but I have to agree with Redmask. My fear is that if we don't at least occasionally offer up some significant resistance to the absolute face-palm stupid things the hyprocritical crusading thought police are pushing we may be sorry we didn't later on down the road. Beamer is wrong; they don't just want the occasional game with a strong female lead. They want far more than that, and without someone offering counterpoint to their idiocy, developers and publishers may eventually start listening to them. That's my opinion anyway.

"Social Justice Warriors[SJWs] are the new cancer of the internet. They’re a bunch of college-age, American-centric, special snowflakes, who feel the need to dictate anything and everything like self-entitled asshole’s.

Who gave you the position of being the internet police?
Who gave you the right to decide what words are acceptable or unacceptable to use?

Who gave you the right to judge someone’s comedy or content as bad and take it away?

Who gave you the right to constrict someone’s creativity(writing, art), because you think that it’s “problematic”?

To add to that, sjws are the most racist shitholes I’ve ever seen.

You complain about racism all the time, yet you’re the one’s who look at nothing but skin color. It doesn’t matter if a character is intelligent, strong-willed, kind, or helpful. If they’re white you automatically peg them as the devil. Lupita Nyong’o won an oscar for best supporting actress and ALL I saw was people being “so happy that a woman of color won the award”. Because it didn’t matter if Lupita was incredibly talented and nailed the shit out of that role, all you assholes focused on was her skin color.

You reduce everyone down to their sexuality or race or gender, without giving a crap about someone’s actual personality or character.

You lump everyone who isn’t white into a single category(POC).

I’d rather be identified by my race, and along with that it’s heritage, and culture, rather than be called 3 ambiguous letters or words. Do you know how ridiculously offensive it is to call a person someone “of color”? Like we’re somehow different from people who are white? Like we need our own tag to segregate us from white people? YOU ARE MOVING SOCIETY BACKWARDS WITH THIS KIND OF SHIT.

Racism against white people exists; not in the West, but in other parts of the world. White people are not the majority everywhere. You think the world evolves around America? You think every place is as diverse as America?

Go to Africa. Go to the Middle East. Fuck, go to parts of Asia. Open a history book maybe. SJW’s are actually trying to call Irish people POC, when they are WHITE AS SNOW because they can’t stand the fact that white people have been oppressed in history.

POC’s can be racist against other POC’s. My Arabian boss hates Asians. My black grandfather doesn’t like Mexicans.

White people are not Satan reincarnated. POC’s are not angels. Get that through your fucking head.

And stop STOP STOP speaking for other races! You’re only making yourself look stupid and like your suffering from an extreme case of white guilt.

Stop trying to pick apart every TV show/song/movie and look for thing you might deem “problematic”.

Go outside.

Get some air.

Stay off the internet.

Talk to actual people. Because most of you have barely any real-world experience and you will be eaten alive with your ridiculous ideologies.

And before anyone says “Well not all sjw’s are like that”, I am going off of the majority of sjws on tumblr. And if I’ve learned anything from sjw’s, it’s that it’s totally fine to judge and generalize the majority.

( The fact that I have to say that I am a black girl to avoid getting bombarded with comments like “white cishet” just shows how appalling your “movement” has become. )"
