I just got excited when I saw "porn" in the headline and clicked on it immediately. What a disappointment - not so much as a pic of a bare nipple!

Having seen clown porn, I shudder to think what troll porn looks like...


There's such a thing as "clown porn"??? Wow! Gotta go check it out! Outtahere

That game was called Shattered Horizons, and the reason it didn't sell is because it was online multiplayer only. It lacked single player campaign, bots, or other SP modes. It had a dearth of weapons and levels. I thought the game looked great, but wasn't interested in paying for what was essentially a tech demo.



And the reason why it didn't sell much was because it *required* PhysX to run. You had to have an nVidia card or you went home.


I think both are equally true. The funny thing is that I have it in my library and have no idea how it got there. I certainly was never interested in it because it's mp only.

I'll never understand this and Dragon Age.

You've got a relatively deep and wildy successful original IP-based RPG!

What are you going to do next?!


Remove everything original and RPG from the sequel! FANS WILL LOVE IT!

Seriously. I'll never understand why developers mess with what worked well and got them lots of sales and end up making inferior sequels.

ME 2 wasn't as good as 1 for me, and I've never bothered to try 3. I bought 3 on a big discount, but I've heard the ending is terrible and it means I have to re-install Origin, so I have been dragging ass on it.

I'm not an MMO gamer but I have to admit I am really curious to see how Blizzard's next MMO is received. I have a sneaking suspicion, as others here have alluded to, that people have gotten kind of burnt out on WoW and won't be nearly so quick to move to the "Next Big Thing" that Blizzard comes out with. I think it's possible that WoW was a one-of-a-kind phenomenon that won't ever be repeated. I don't think Blizzard will be hurting too badly if that's the case, but it might put a little more urgency in the way they approach the games industry, which ought to be a good thing. It might help them recover some of the magic they clearly have lost from their early days.

I didn't mind being given a jet and a tank. I minded being given the first two or three of the five "make cash" upgrades. And several crew upgrades. I would have enjoyed unlocking those for myself.

I know it's silly to take SR3's story seriously, but you're thrown into a completely new town where you're the target of the existing gangs, and yet somehow, with my 'cheated' version, I already had recruited gang members and had extortion money ready waiting for me.

It was a stupid cheat, and sadly because of the way Steam integrates DLC, I can never, ever turn it off.

I had the same problem with Sleeping Dogs. After like 5 hours, I had unlocked EVERYTHING. Made almost everything a useless grind. Still loved the game though.

The story and mission variety was enough incentive to keep playing Sleeping Dogs for me. I loved the fight mechanics too.

The Blizzard name alone used to be enough to get me excited. Now I really don't care what they do. They've long since given up making games I would want to play.

Do we all go back to Half Life when we think about AI, when we first came in contact with the enemy commando's? What's the next one we reference? FEAR 1? Then pretty much nothing else? LOL

Yeah, I can't think of better AI than FEAR's. And that was, what, eight years ago? (looked it up, eight years and three weeks ago.)

And it's not just that games have gotten stuck at FEAR's level, it's that basically nobody has ever even COME CLOSE to giving us AI as good as the one in FEAR. Most shooters have AI that's fucking yonks worse.

I've said it before and I'll keep saying it, I enjoy games much more when the AI is not perfect. Maybe even subpar. Deus Ex would have been less enjoyable if the AI had been smarter since it would have been supremely difficult to be stealthy. For AI to be good enough for me it simply needs to be more sophisticated than the NPC going from obliviously standing still to just rushing right at you unitl you kill him.

Saints Row 4 is so different and so off the wall it really shouldn't work, but somehow it does. The progression is fun, the powers are awesome and I love the humor. I thought it was hysterical that you can "romance" a diembodied AI sphere, and I almost died laughing when the evil Zin started singing "Just a Friend". "He fucked with Biz Markie!"

Jim obviously isn't for everybody, but he's generally been against DRM and the political games of the publishers. I'm not aware of any hatred of PC gamers...
Unlike many publishers.
Piracy - Trying To Kill It Makes It Stronger

Why PC Gaming Gets Away With It

Shrugging,
Ray

He apparently has been doing some revisionist history after I wrote him off forever but as Creston says it was only because he was flooded with hate mail, and rightly so. All the anti-DRM editorials in the world can't change his history. He wrote it and he is an asshole.

In essence he paints himself with the same brush, yeah. But there can be value in opinion pieces, just don't trust any reviews from him.

He kinda pissed me off with his braindead editorial about PC gamers not liking DRM simply because they are pirates. He earned himself a permanent spot on my blacklist after that one.

Actually, the Blend Games guy isn't ranting about Jim ranting, he's basically agreeing with him.

And why wouldn't you? Everything Jim says in that particular video is spot on. There is no game journalism. It's nothing but glorified advertising. Microsoft's embargo on the Call of Duty resolution thing is just plain retarded.

So then Jim Sterling is telling us not to listen to him because he is a paid advertiser not a journalist? Finally he says something I can agree with!
