Uh, prohibition era?

Being demonized and being illegal aren't the same thing. See weed.

What? Dude, you are really not familiar with prohibition era history, are you? Alcohol was most certainly demonized. That's how they got the government to amend the constitution. They pretty much blamed everything wrong with the country at the time on alcohol. Google some prohibition era posters.

There were myriad reasons for the Volstead Act getting passed, but the zealots proclaiming alcohol to be the source of all society's ills were the (vocal) minority. It never had truly popular support.

When the Eighteenth Amendment was passed I earnestly hoped- with a host of advocates of temperance-that it would be generally supported by public opinion and thus the day be hastened when the value to society of men with minds and bodies free from the undermining effects of alcohol would be generally realized. That this has not been the result, but rather that drinking has generally increased; that the speakeasy has replaced the saloon, not only unit for unit, but probably two-fold if not three-fold; that a vast array of lawbreakers has been recruited and financed on a colossal scale; that many of our best citizens, piqued at what they regarded as an infringement of their private rights, have openly and unabashedly disregarded the Eighteenth Amendment; that as an inevitable result respect for all law has been greatly lessened; that crime has increased to an unprecedented degree-I have slowly and reluctantly come to believe.

Played for a couple hours today. It's fine, but has absolutely no lasting appeal. Games are extremely small (4v4), and combat is unfortunately a lot of ridiculous jumping around. Maps are for the most part boring, and very limited.

Shareholders should not be happy about this.

And they would have been happy had a flagship title not made a holiday release?

How would this have any chance of being successful? I've never played a bug-free game, and I've sure as shit seen plenty of games knowingly released before they were in an acceptable state. Ship first, patch later is an inevitability with consoles designed to be internet connected.

The only Youtuber critics I ever really trust are Totalbiscuit and Angry Joe because they are both more than willing to bash the fuck out of a game they think deserve it, and more often than not they are AAA releases like BF4.

TB loved BF4.

Alcohol can be used responsibly

... as a disinfectant. It would really be interesting to see alcohol as demonized as every other explicitly harmful drug.

Dunno, combat just looks too unchanged/unimproved. Dark Souls was already basically more of the same, itself... isn't looking like they are trying to move forward at all.

Move forward to what? It is hard but fair combat. I don't think there is much they could do to improve upon the combat. What would you suggest?

Magic, for starters, stinks. It's beyond boring. Arching is the same, having little use/effect throughout the series. And while I understand polearms do behave quite a bit differently than sword'n'board etc., I don't think they do enough to differentiate playing styles between weapons. I'd like to see different skill/ability sets beyond "thrust" and "swing".

They made bare hands and shields viable as weapons, added a dual-wielding stance, allow two-handed weapons to parry, made backstabs interruptable and harder to pull off, gave a riposte-like thing after guard breaks

Except for dual wielding (which I've no idea how well implemented it is), these are largely simple and or superficial changes.

From the recommendation of you sorry lot I've begun watching Banshee. With any luck it may yet fill the hole left by Spartacus, a hole big enough for Jupiter's cock.

No, you don't...

Amazon's downloadable games service is pretty straightforward, and it has the benefit of being hosted on Amazon's servers, which are insanely fast. Unless you are compulsive about having all your content in one place, there's no reason not to use Amazon.

I'm an RPG junkie but found Dark Eye impenetrably dull. Is Blackguards any different?

It's really getting ridiculous. I dropped $$$ on PC upgrades a few months ago and shortly after that got Rayman Legends... for my PS3. Ubi keep putting shit out I'd love to get (Anno, Rayman, Creed, Far Cry, and now MMX) but I'm simply. Not. Going. To. Use. Uplay.

They had one shot, Blacklist, which I got for free... and they blew it.

Do I really NEED to see the same couple of 3 second cutscenes EVERY TIME I capture/loot/scuttle an enemy ship? Something I might do several times in a single naval engagement?

Consider it motivation to stop cheating boarding ships during combat.

Anyway, sorry to hijack, but Dragon's Dogma Dark Arisen is easily one of the greatest video games ever made in my opinion, not joking. I mean how can you not love a game that has your pawn minions shout out "YOU SHALL NOT CAST!" as they attack an enemy intoning a spell. Glorious.

My copy of Dark Arisen arrives here tomorrow. As much as I loved Dogma (I got it release week), Dark Arisen being standalone and $40 was a spit in the face to owners of the original.

If all they do is fix the horrible controls I'll be happy. I never got to enjoy RE4 properly because the port was awful.

It was awful on the GameCube, too. Played like a one-stick game. You had to stop to aim, which wasn't fun in a game clearly designed to be shooting while retreating.

Completely opposite. The game was designed around having to fire while immobile, which is why it had such a reputation as a white-knuckle affair. RE4 struck a fairly good balance between surviving and combat, with later entries having way too much emphasis on doling out damage instead of avoiding it.
