It's not done till modders add a PC mouse friendly interface.

That does seem like a nice place to wait for.

I'm replaying Fallout 3 and New Vegas during the gaming 'dry season' that is the mid-summer months.

Dry season? At best that means chipping away at an insurmountable back log. Not that playing F3 and NV are a bad choice, using the mod that puts the two together?

My prediction for F4: Pretty awesome.

Seems like many here want this to be the KNOCK BETHESDA DOWN version. So we can build them back up later. I see more of the same, with some nice additions, which is more of the awesome with new additions.

Snowden can't realistically be pardoned, think of the floodgates it could open if he were? He's right in many ways and I'm sure several politico's even agree, but just cannot happen and it wouldn't happen anywhere.

While I never cared for how they did classes, the world itself is amazing. Still one of the best environments in any MOG. Riding out of the Misty Mountains at sunset into Rivendell was always amazeballs.

I remember back in the day I wanted a love-child of LOTRO and DDO.

They're simply consolidating the population to cut costs on empty space. Basically, they're doing what most new MMOs do after a couple months once it boils down to a niche population.

Hope DDO is next, in a game where you want groups, mega-servers are nice. Not that this is that, but less means more in a LFG way.

News Comments > The Witcher III: Wild Hunt Game+ Mode Coming

On another note, about the "too much content" argument, I don't think it's a case of too much content. The problem is how the content is presented. In Skyrim for example, there's a ton of content and it's never "too much". The problem with Witcher 3 is that the content is pushed into your face as soon as possible and you clearly know where it is at all times. You quest list becomes massive really fast because of the flashing job boards that you feel obligated to click on. Having these hundreds of quests makes you stressed about completing them, especially since if you wait too long, some quests will no longer give you worthwhile rewards. It's just stressful and unpleasant. You eventually get tired of the game before completing it because you've pretty much done everything.

I guess this is going to be a paragraph in my document :p

Yeah as we play games I assume most of us dream of how things could be better and how fantasy rpg's throw out quests to the point it becomes a mess, story-lines blurred etc. Someone needs a smart way to have it where perhaps a main story line and only one side ever available at once or something down that line, like anything would take some good engineering to make it just right.

One will say just take one, but that is like inventory objects you start taking everything at least for a good while, because you aren't sure how it can be used in the future. Some games mark things now as junk or sell only type objects, that helps.

I believe in too much content for many games, not all. Give me a good 10 hours for $10-20... get in, get out, before mechanics get boring, story gets sloppy, equals happy customer.

News Comments > Steam Security Hole Closed
12. Re: Steam Security Hole Closed Jul 27, 2015, 11:06 HorrorScope
 
Just reading what Blue's has listed here it doesn't make sense.

"this involved simply entering a blank in place of a required security response code, making it a trivial matter to hijack any account only by knowing a user's name"

1. The security code is Steam Guard. So just going by that. Steam Guard was compromised.
2. You still have to know the password to get to the Security Code. So no, not just the user ID.
3. If you say your forgot your password, then you need access to that persons email account to get the code there.

Well he seems confused. Same guy said it was Andrew 3 days ago.

http://steamcommunity.com/app/345180/discussions/0/....

Funny maybe he doesn't know there were different Witcha voices and whoever says that sounds like _____ ______ playing Geralt, he knows it was Geralt, but maybe not the actual persons name and just agrees.

"I hunt demons for a living"... WTF is Geralt doing hunting demons here?

I had the same exact thought. Seems like they are trying to capitalize on the success of the Witcher by having the same voice actor or someone who sounds exactly like him.

It's Andrew Wincott, the original English language voice actor from The Witcher. Not the current voice of Doug Cockle (TW2/TW3).


From Dev over on steam:
"You're not wrong. Victor Vran is voiced by Doug Cockle."

As for the voice, I wouldn't mind him trying something different in one of many ways. Vic is the Witcha!

Man, this exclusive crap is such BS. Do console makers honestly think by holding a title hostage for a few months or a year will make me pay $300-400 for the console just for that title? GTFO.

They honestly don't know what else to do.

Oh my god. Just stop sucking, cabbies! Stop ripping people off and learn to be fucking competitive, you shitty pieces of human trash. Fucking hell. Most of you fuckers drive like absolute motherfucking shit anyway. I'd be ecstatic to never see another cab-hole on the road again.

Well they are regulated which adds to costs and what they can and can not do. It is amazing Uber can withstand so many lawsuits, stoppages etc from all angles.

I can barely remember the last time I went into a Wal*Mart. It just kind of sucks for so many reasons. I'd rather go to a Dollar Store.


I go routinely, small town, and I guess I don't have the horror stories people talk about in larger cities, like how people look, the horror. I do watch TV and I eat at Mc Donald's to now and again and get a coffee regularly. Somebody like me has to exists since millions use these services, right?

Their electronics are name brand, movies, candy, deodorant, light bulbs, fertilizer seems as good as anyone else.

The only real issue I have is active checkout lanes, it is their #1 complaint, they go on TV we are fixing it and it remains the same year after year. If it has improved it is like they added a half a person a day into the mix.
