GTA4 woulda been totally fine (engine/performance notwithstanding) had they not opted to shoehorn in a fucking cover system.

There's a world of difference between not liking something and not being able to see the appeal of something, chum. If you can't "see the appeal" of Minecraft you're fuckin blind, plain and simple.

As a computer programmer... No, it's not. Frankly, I've never seen the appeal of the game. I don't hate it, but I don't find it the least bit entertaining.

The game is a young, unjaded computer programmer's wet dream.

Better?

Well guess what, we have TF2 as living proof of the otherwise. The smaller, more intimate community went to fucking shit when all the f2p assholes showed up.

I understand the build-it yourself Lego-like mentality

You answered your own question in the same fuckin post. The game is a computer programmer's wet dream. There are innumerable videos on youtube as proof.

Establishing a strong community as quickly as possible is essential for multiplayer games and the $25 price tag is already a significant barrier for most consumers, especially with all the F2P competition.

Strong != large.

Anyone else see Cloud Atlas? I was rather surprised how well it turned out...

No, but I just watched Jiro Dreams of Sushi.

And I don't even like sushi!

This week’s case involves a Norwegian woman (Google Translate) named Linn Nygaard. She bought a Kindle in the United Kingdom, took it home to Norway, and bought UK e-books on the Kindle. This week, Amazon suddenly disabled her account, taking away her access to an e-book library of 40 books. That move was reversed (Google Translate) about 24 hours later, with access to her Kindle account restored.

Makes sense to me (Amazon's action, that is). Region restrictions are not some newfangled means of content protection.

I don't think I've ever gotten an orange from a chest. I got one or two from enemies that have a 5% chance to drop a specific orange, and then I've vended ~5 others. I think I also got a lousy one from Warrior the first time I killed him.

The color doesn't matter so much as using the correct elemental. Loaders are a complete pain in the ass without acid, bandits/skags are much easier with fire, and then slag just makes badasses a joke.

Personally I think people are better off just playing the slots in-game as opposed to wasting time on twitter or using cheatengine but hey, whatever floats your boat.

With the odds the slots have? Not likely. Best thing to do is just use quest rewards and check vending machines when you can. Slots are a last resort.

it's an offshoot from the first movie and appears to ignore the second. Wait, what?

You say that like it's a bad thing.

I think the real myth is that games "journalism" ever existed in the first place.

Like I mentioned, Computer Gaming World was a great read. They fell victim to their own overhyping sometimes (read: Black & White, Doom 3) but the majority of the time the reviews and editorials were insightful, well written, and fun to read. Jeff Green in particular had a fantastic column entitled Greenspeak wherein he communicated his exploits as an aging gamer.

But being as this was a monthly rag, there was simply no way they could survive. People need to know everything and they need to know it NNOOOWWWW, and a month in "news" time may as well be ten years.

Games journalism is no different than any other: it's been utterly destroyed by the internet.

Computer Gaming World had a "tschotske of the month" segment wherein they highlighted the little goodies publishers would send them in a shallow effort to curry favor. Thanks to the internet, there are a million and one voices on a million and one sites clambering like mad jackalopes at the foot of Mount Publisher for the merest scraps of content. The cost of maintaining quality and integrity in an organization is too great when its efforts are simply lost in the Sea of Mediocrity known as internet. Games journalism hasn't existed for years, it's been completely replaced by publishers' marketing divisions.

*ahem*

He's going the distance,
He's going for speed,
She's all alone, all alone, in her time of need...

In short, it's Trials Evolution + Rush 2049 + Halo + Tron

That's a little better...

"5 dollar noobs" are all that ever populated l4d2 online play. I loved the game to death, but it is virtually impossible to play without restricting it to friends who aren't going to rage or constantly do stupid shit.
