I hope they get some new writers, they have the engine and tools to do something fantastic but the writing in D:OS was mediocre at best.

My fingers crossed, gut thinks this will continue to improve as well. But the write from Shadowrun is badass, so if they can get someone like that, run don't walk.

A no-brainer imo, which many fail at. Yep keep building on everything, you have a killer engine, it could even go 3d if they want to change the camera perspective to give a fresh look when the time is needed.

Really liked DK2 with the Gamebryo engine, imo the proved the engine could run without crashing before Bethesda did. I'd like to see it to, however if not, there are others carrying the 3d RPG torch as well. IMO we are getting entries regularly now from all genres. The indies came in and easily saw what was missing.

Hoping for big sales on:
FC4
Project Zomboid
Dead Rising 3
All AC games
The Lone Dark
This War of Mine
Road Redemption
Shadow of Mordor
Rust
Life is Feudal

Picked up Shadow of Mordor for $26 through GMG plus the front page code just now. It was on my "buy at $20" list, and I figure that was close enough.

SoM is my biggest disappointment of the year by leagues. Every time I'm reminded of the game, my wallet does a cry of regret and sorrow. It's killing orcs and collecting useless collectables. Just a horrible game imo.

Biggest surprises of the year:

Dragon Age Inquisition
Risen 3
Lords of the Fallen

In that order.

We all have our opinions but just counting them all as equal:

SOM Steam User Rating: 94% (Last update Dec 15!!!)
Lord of fallen: 60% (Last update Dec 16th!!!)
Risen 3: 73% (Last update Sept 3 )

My personal line is at 80%, all are on sale. Will check out LoF feedback again after latest patch.

Yeah keeping eye out for DAI (On origin), AC4, FC4 and Wasteland 2. I'd like to see AC4 for $15 or less. Ethan Carter and Gauntlet at a deep discount.

As for SOM being repetitious, most games are, I found the combat exciting none the less. DAI I won't play until a real patch to address controls though, well I will give the Hotkey script a shot.

I picked up the Last Remnant for 5 bucks.

I picked that up a year or two ago. I keep meaning to play it...I keep letting it slide. All my friends told me I would really dig it. My backlog is my own worst enemy.

It would be more recommended on my end if there weren't a lot of TB games released. It was pretty good, totally would use Cheatengine to speed the game speed up a lot for traveling the map. Since there are so many games TB games now, I wouldn't recommend it unless you simply play them all.

This isn't about him being wrong now, it is about he still is a country and they can mess with a company pretty well I reckon and now Sony gets to deal with the security breach, because they made a movie about knocking him off. Was a bad call on Sony's end now.

Yeah I'm a dolt simply connecting the dots on how this got to the point it has. There were threats, people decided "Well it's just a movie, lets not see anything stupid here and call it off." and well you thought it was a 13 year old. So who's the idiot on this one?

What is wrong with you? Do you not understand the concept of reality? This is a man who is murdering 10's of 1000's of people for real. He's murdering people by the thousands! And this is somehow ok with you? That's freedom without limitation or responsibility. You somehow equate this with a fucking game that the asshole developers have only created as controversial for the sake of money? WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?! As much as it it offends me that government agencies must do what they do, the reality is that you and your ilk make it necessary. We can't be "free" precisely because of people like you.

You talk about my comprehension, it isn't about the dick he is, the thing is you make a movie about killing him, his country especially one like that, might come after you. Why is Sony making this movie with real names and in fact a comedy and not a serious drama? They are bringing shit to themselves vs a country over a comedy and one that tests missiles in their area. Yes they are dangerous, yes they are bad, that isn't my point. My point is they should not have use real likeness, that brings the problem to your door step. That isn't a guess, that is what is happening, so obviously they overstepped.

This has nothing to do if they are good or bad, we know as a world where they stand. Is was this a smart move by Sony. A: No.

One mentions they should still release it and have more security. Is that what a movie goers wants to see? Who is paying for this? That isn't easy to must up either. Sony learned a leason, don't use real names.

You may not care, but you are not them. Sure it is a comedy but it does in fact name North Korea and their leader by name not likeness, correct? You see funny ha ha, you know how strict they are, they do have true censorship. So now it becomes country vs company. Something tells me they learned a lesson and we won't see it repeated in a long while. Not saying right or wrong, but using real names and not likeness brought the issue right to their front door.

Wow, how does any intelligent human being even respond to nonsense like that to start? Tell you what, quaff a ton of beer, smoke a few pounds of weed, and we may start getting close to how absurd that sort of irrationality is.

Even if what you said made the tiniest fraction of sense...who fucking cares? The man is a tyrant who allows his subjects to die of starvation. He's quite literally insane and a mass murderer to boot, and you find this to be a problem? But a game about the mass-murder of civilians for no other reason than shock value for money? This is somehow acceptable to you? This is you're argument? This is the sort of psychotic behavior that makes me want the government to monitor everything. I'm not afraid of regular people, I'm afraid of lunatics like you who don't understand the difference between freedom and responsibility.

To him he isn't a tyrant, that is the whole fucked up part of wars and the like. The other side doesn't see themselves as the bad guy, they see the other side as the bad guy. So when you make a movie especially one in your regional area that said country has sent nuke tests your way you probably shouldn't make a funny ha ha movie about killing him/them. Yeah they are nuts, but you/Sony want to attract this?

This isn't about him being wrong now, it is about he still is a country and they can mess with a company pretty well I reckon and now Sony gets to deal with the security breach, because they made a movie about knocking him off. Was a bad call on Sony's end now.

Greeeeeaaaat. Then when he hunts you down and kills you for your kindness, the Feds will find a copy of the game in his Steam list and have it to blame.

Sounds good for a couple hundred responses at BN's. I want to get out, but they keep pulling me back in.

A man, many men putting photos of themselves wearing pantyhose showing their junk online. Even though I'm not saying sensor it, it disturbs me because it looks totally hideous to me.

What has this got to do with anything?. Why are you looking up pictures of men in pantyhose if it upsets you so much. Just stop searching for them.

"I'm not saying sensor it"
I get the feeling you'd love to "Sensor" it

Some say Hatred disturbs them and has no place. I say men in pantyhose photo sharing socially has the same affect to me. But I just have to live with it and not bet my knickers in a bunch. I'm amazed at how much this comes up when searching for something else.

Sensor, yah lol. My typing/grammar isn't the best.

Yeah they pulled it here too. What a load of bollocks. Credible evidence my ass. Some 13 year old haxxors are laughing their asses off right now. I don't know what's worse, the bullshit culture of pervasive fear and rampant paramoia that the elites are selling to strip us of our liberty or the schmucks that actually believe it.

You think a 13 year old is doing this? Releasing info like this to the press? To me this seems a lot more sophisticated/calculated vs what a 13 would have the patience and understanding to do.

This goes in line with Hatred to some degree. But there is a difference, this is a movie is made about killing a leader of a real country. Now you are against Hatred which has no link to real people other then it is pixel representing people in general. But no link to a specific. You are against that, still morally shallow.

But we have a movie that again is about a plot to kill a real world leader even if they are dicks, not everyone believes that and some are offended at now have put out threats. But you seem to be ok with it, because you are upset the Theaters are pulling it, chickens.

So it seems you want it both ways to some degree. Hmmm...

It's a comedy. Point in fact, it's a satire taking shots at the intelligence community - and gee isn't that a coincidence they're upset about it and now it's been pulled because of an email. And regardless of any of that, I'm not opposed to real life tyrants being desposed and/or killed. There's a reason for that. There's a need for that. That's fine. Just randomly going around murdering people because you're a failure in life and you're pissed off isn't. Do you honestly not understand the differences here or are you just trolling. There's no both ways about it.

You may not care, but you are not them. Sure it is a comedy but it does in fact name North Korea and their leader by name not likeness, correct? You see funny ha ha, you know how strict they are, they do have true censorship. So now it becomes country vs company.

What is also the jew talk in all of this? I just went back and watched the released trailers. There wasn't any specific link to a specific group, seemed like all human pixel representations were open to termination. Seemed like an equal opportunity killer to me. The one voice with Duke's voice, I found it pretty funny to listen to. It's all about if you like fictional horror, if you don't, then yeah you won't like it. But we all have things we don't like.

It is SICK that we have people like this walking around. The people that made the game and the people that play the game. I am not going to buy the game, but I am also not going to keep my mouth shut while we burn all the jews in the oven either. Or how much fun it would be to murder all the innocent people around us.

You guys are fucked in the head. Sorry but you are.

Right, but who gets to set the rules? It won't be you and when someone sets a rule you don't like, well that is how you get difference of opinions. I hope you've been as vocal about books and movies, because they've had the green-light (pun intended) for decades. Don't have this little game wake you up now, it's been here for a good spell now.

You can disagree but you are still wrong. It IS a tragedy that there are so many people in our culture that think a game like this is "fun". Its Sick and just shows how far we have to go still as humanity.

I don't know if I will own this or not, I never played Manhunt or Postal's, but I won't say no for sure. I haven't really checked too much out on it, but I do know the importance of separating fantasy from reality. To me it is the total key point, not real vs real.

Things that bother me is the Catholic Empire being able to somehow move pedophiles around, protect them, unforced to report it as if they are all in on it. Men of God doing this, disturbing. Reality.

A man, many men putting photos of themselves wearing pantyhose showing their junk online. Even though I'm not saying sensor it, it disturbs me because it looks totally hideous to me.

A country that pulls its weight around everywhere, where the people of said country has never asked/voted for that. Acting as the world police which can be looked at from another perspective as Nazi'ish, coming into my area and telling us "What to do or else". Because if a country was pushing us around like that, that is how we'd feel about, feel pretty pissed off. A country that just dominates its position and then acts as if anyone who doesn't want to get along the way they want them to, is boarding on being labelled terrorists or something of the like. Realities. That disturbs me.

Right and when one thinks that they have become their parents. But that is it with kids they have their own minds and want to live in a dynamic world as well, not be born into a per-determined prison. You didn't want to be restrained like that, your off-spring wont either.

Who will be responsible when someone gets inspired and acts this out in a community or school? Because it will happen.

Hasn't it already happened without the existence of this game. I'm cool to a point with the person who is consistent and believes this stuff is a driver. But if one waivers sometimes yes this is the problem and other times it is not, cherry picking. Then it is just, I want the world to work the way I want it to at any point in time with how I feel.

Not sure if any action like this has gone back to a video game being the reason. Almost all go back to a kid that has had all kinds of issues in their life for many years. It is the shape and biology of their brain. Then you get into the sticky situation, can we institute someone because they show symptoms of possibly being a psychotic killer? If the answer is yes, that is a whole other can of worms. But that has a better change saving innocent lives vs trying to make a link to a video game which at best is a very secondary reason, but not a driving one.

The reason I don't want to see a game like "Hatred" get a big mainstream platform like the one Steam provides, is NOT because I think it will lead to more mass shootings.

I don't want to see it get a big mainstream platform because it is a CELEBRATION of mass shootings, which is just as fucked up as a game about raping children, or burning Jews, or whatever the hell example you want to come up with along those lines.

I don't want to see it get a mass platform out of simple human decency, period.

That makes sense, if something big happens and if this is somehow used to explain why someone "did it", then it bunches a lot of other games into the fray. Not saying I'd say no to it because of this, but I can see how it can pull many other things that have been ok up to now, to make them once again questioned.

This is true, domestic issues being #1, guys getting along with girls, you know the most basic battle/relation there is. That is a fail, but you can't even live without it. As said games are not even measureable against those listed. I'll add in natural resources as another force that causes death. Life isn't pretty overall, it amazing it is as civilized as is.
