Speaking of HBO on Amazon, what on there is worth watching? I watched Band of Brothers on DVD a couple of years ago - I'm looking for something new. How is "The Wire"?

If it wasn't Bono's/U2's idea, then why is Bono apologizing? His apology definitely seems to imply he had some say in the matter doesn't it?

What if we called it Prezgate, would that change your mind?

PG!


If I ever go a month without buying a game on Steam, that would definitely constitute a #Prezgate. Something very fishy would be going on then...

The advantage here is GG is also getting positive press, precisely because this issue has gotten bigger. Which is partly why anti-GG people are freaking out on the media end. They are not used to being replied to on anything approaching an equal level.

Yeah pretty much nailed it there. They expected the same sort of one sided bullshit we've been seeing for months thanks to gaming editorials and other nonsense. Now that people aren't reacting the way they want them to its freak out time. Oh well, looks good on them for being dumb and lumping everyone together when people bitched about it time and time again.

Yep. They are used to being the ones controlling the narrative, so any challenge to that makes them freak out and circle the wagons. It's not that I don't support the idea behind the movement, it's just that activism isn't my thing, especially when I am to be lumped in a group that doesn't speak for me. And I hate that everything has to have "gate" put at the end of it. It ends up trivializing the message I think.

I would prefer the games be reviewed as subjective art. Unless art critics routinely arrogantly preach to their readers as they currently do in the gaming press in which case forget I said it. State your opinion, sure, just don't bash readers over the head with it or pretend it makes you superior.

'Gamergate’: Feminist video game critic Anita Sarkeesian cancels Utah lecture after threat
It is ridiculous that this is associated in anyway with anyone who supports #gamersgate without a shred of evidence. I think the whole #gamergate thing is kinda dumb, but it is the height of unprofessional behavior to associate a movement with a death threat with zero evidence.

So what exactly is Galaxy?

I'm assuming that's their steam-like client? But they've said in the past it's supposed to be totally optional, and that if you like downloading the way you do now, you won't be forced to use it.

Here we go


It's GOG's answer to Steam. I think it's a great idea because a lot of their older games have long-dead multiplayer that GOG has helped resurrect. A common client will make finding games in these rejuvenated titles a snap. In theory...

I don't mind if a reviewer docks a game's score because of personal opinion and tastes. Having not played Bayonetta I can't tell if he is being hypersensitive or has a point, but if it bothers him it will undoubtedly bother someone else, so he could become their go-to reviewer. The problem is when he uses his review as a soapbox to preach about sexism and other evils. A review is not the place for that; that is what editorials are for.

And if the author likes the Rotten Tomatoes scoring system so much he should note that Metacritic also breaks down the total amount of reviews into 3 categories - number of positive, middling, and negative reviews. It's right at the top of the list of reviews for both professional critics and users' columns.

Great game but it hasn't aged well. (Like elf mentioned the marine runs WAY too fast making it tough to control). But it definitely needs a modern day graphics upgrade I'd buy in a second.

Ubisoft engineer says Microsoft & Sony pressuring them 30fps on PC

Not surprising. I think it's because they fear that if the PC version is too superior people will just opt to pirate it on PC. That, or maybe they just don't want their shiny new machines looking long in the tooth already.

If 60 bucks is too much but $45 is okay for you, there is a 25% off deal from Dealzon for the "MAC" version. The MAC version will also run on PC since it's Steamworks. Oddly the North America version gets an "unable to add voucher error

I need to pay more attention to gaming news. I had no idea what "AMD Mantle" was so I had to Google it. Then I was like "How the hell did I miss this? I've been waiting for an alternative API for ages!"

How many games use it, or will DA 3 be the first?

I doubt it will happen, but if this game is more like DA Origins and Awakenings (and not like disappointing DA2) I will buy it even though it's by EA and it's an Origin exclusive. The original was spectacular.

I hate it when people take an issue and simplify down to one single variable. Women make less than man because... wait for it... sexism!!! Yep, the evil white man is once again sticking it to someone in his vileness. Let me try it their way. Violence is lower in the rural areas than in the cities. There are more cows in rural areas. Therefore, cows prevent crime!

Of course it's ridiculous, but so is looking at a multi-faceted issue such as gender pay gaps and boiling the cause down to it being simply due to women being women. The MS CEO wasn't inarticulate, he just answered it like a moron.

Well, to be fair I don't think the article is talking about being a waste of YOUR time. Instead, it seems to be illustrating that it is a big waste of your employer's time.

Well at least Yerli can't complain it didn't sell because of piracy then.

This started out as a Kinect game...
