I assume the title is tongue-in-cheek. I think it's kinda cute actually.

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.

Why PC Gaming Gets Away With It

Shrugging,

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!

What Happens When You Dress As A Boston Marathon Victim And Post It On Twitter.

I just can't figure out how someone acting in poor taste is justification for death threats. Even her parents are getting death threats acording to the story. People suck.

Weird.....I guess this is the first time "too soon?" actually is a yes answer? Doesn't bother me a bit. People dress up as terrorists and no one bats an eye.

I don't really find anything wrong with it myself, but knowing how sensitive everyone is (and in this case it is admittedly at least somewhat understandable) if I did something like this with such dark humor I wouldn't show up at work and I certainly wouldn't post pictures on the frickin' internet. She clearly wasn't thinking, but the response she has received is so ridiculous it completely overshadows her poor judgment.

There has to be better solutions out there than this garbage.

Undoubtedly. But you know what? No one was doing a thing to come up with better solutions. No one was interested in trying to fix what was very obviously broken and getting worse every year. While it isn't the best solution, it is the only one that anyone has bothered to put forth. Had something been previously done to begin to fix the huge problems with health care coverage in this country the ACA would have never been necessary. Nothing was, so we're stuck with this for now. Hopefully it will be fixed and tweaked down the road, since it is undeniably a mess in its current state, but it's a start. As far as cost goes, health care costs were already skyrocketing before the ACA. It was going to happen with or without it. Rising costs is just a fact of life we all need to deal with.

Still waiting for you to explain why Obamacare is such a great thing btw, given all the evidence to the contrary.

I am not going to claim it "great"; rather I'll give you a few things that I like about it myself. I speak for no one but myself here btw.

1) Health plans can’t turn you down or charge you more because you’re sick or have a health condition - that's huge.
2) Puts a cap on yearly out pocket expenses for things like medication.
3) It mandates pediatric dental coverage, which sounds like a small thing but doctors have linked many health problems later in life to poor dental health from an early age.
4) It eliminates annual or lifetime dollar limits for health plans. At my company the limit used to be a million dollars and then you were dropped. In today's world that isn't much, especially if one or more of your family members gets cancer.
