Edge of Tomorrow had a weird name and not great marketing,

Think that's the core of the issue. Awful movies with heavy-handed marketing can bring in buku cash. Great movies with bad marketing almost never do well. Star Power is essentially dead as far as Hollywood goes. Edge of Tomorrow distributor thought having Cruise on a poster would sell their movie.

Um, has anyone seen the real pictures yet? I might have casually looked for say, 12 to 14 hours yesterday but I wasn't able to find any that were real. There were plenty of disturbing, filthy, and disgusting, fakes that I had to subject myself to, dammit, to no avail. I was just hoping if someone could tell me if they were tasteful, yet double self fisting was involved?

It's like a unicorn, man. You spend your whole life wishing to see it and when you do it's just a stupid horse with a stupid horn on its face. Some things are better left to the imagination.

Stop your fucking bitching, this is the fucking internet. Politically Correct exists on an admin-by-admin basis, and you've no right or reason to expect succor from ANYONE.

This is exactly the response I was expecting... "How fucking dare you expect people to behave respectfully on the internet! Why don't you go fuck yourself!"

In my opinion the community would be a much better place without the threats of violence, harm, hateful, and harassing speech. I'm not sure what reason there is to get so irate about people taking a stand against it.

The internet is not a community. The internet is a system of communities. If one doesn't like a community, one need only find another.

Hateful and harassing speech are a time-honored aspect of internet living and anybody shedding tears over it needs to grow up or go find a happy little bubble on some forgotten corner of the web to hide in. Sticks and stones may break bones but trolling is easy enough to ignore.

And as for threats of violence and harm, are you serious? As if there is a rash of instances of people enraging one another on forums, getting in their cars, finding and physically assaulting each other?

I'm not sure what reason there is to get so irate about people taking a stand against it.

Because they're idiots and may as well be taking a stand against grass being green.

Yes surprisingly Edge of Tomorrow was pretty good which is odd for a Tom Cruise movie.

Odd how? Odd if you don't like good movies?

Bollocks, I'd rather have accurate audio than better visuals, especially since for the past years graphics have seen next to no new features added. What was the last big thing, tessellation?

This is absolutely necessary to making stuff like Rift truly revolutionary products. I want to be able to close my eyes in any given game and still feel IN THE GAME.

IWD2 is AD&D3 and doesn't have THAC0.

Icewind Dales are the perfect candidates for replaying as you have full parties of entirely player-created characters. I've been through either game at least a half dozen times by now. They aren't remembered as favorably as other D&D titles because they lack NPCs like Morte or Minsc, but as far as combat goes they were second to none.

I was under the impression the orcs were bred to be mindless soldiers of Mordor. Goblins, on the other hand, seem open to free thinking.

So I don't get the hate for Titanfall here, is it because it's Xbox One/PC exclusive?

Origin, here. I'd love to play the game.

Speaking to the less hand holding, I think a big reason Dark Souls is popular is simply its difficulty. I've been playing DS2 again, completely solo this time, and dying 10 or so times before finally being able to beat some of the bosses. The subsequent feeling of relief/accomplishment is just wholly absent from every other game, and yet games of the NES era thrived on it. I can go back to Mega Man or Castlevania and they will *still* kick my ass, after all these years.

  • 9-Year-Old Girl Accidentally Kills Shooting Range Instructor
  • Umm...yeah, saw this on the local news last night. Sooo is there any lesson to be learned here about letting a 9-year-old fire an UZI? Well of course. The instructor should have started her out with something like maybe just a 50 cal Desert Eagle, just for learning purposes THEN move her over to something like a fully automatic AK 47 THEN finally teach the 9 year old child how to control a fully automatic UZI. I believe the hand grenade and rocket launcher handling was supposed to be at the end of the day...

    THIS is the ideal gun for newbies, especially little kids.

    Anyway, I have zero sympathy for the guy (I do feel sorry for the girl, though.) DON'T LET CHILDREN FUCKING FIRE FULL AUTOMATIC WEAPONS.

    Pretty fucked up that kids as young as 8 can legally use firearms. They can't drive until they are 16, drink until they are 21...but hey let's put a full auto Uzi in their hands and see what happens. Fucked up society.

    Well there is an obvious order to this system. First you master firing your weapon, THEN you master firing while driving your vehicle, THEN you master firing while driving your vehicle while drunk off your ass. If you don't embed drive-by-shooting skills deep into muscle memory then they'll all go out the window as soon as you add alcohol to the mix.

    The console versions being offline and supporting trading is a real kick in the teeth to PC users, not sure why they haven't backported those changes. Duping isn't a real concern anymore thanks to them tightening up the netcode and there is no more open battle.net to worry about.

    There really is no excuse at this point other than laziness on Blizzard's part. Maybe they don't want to open up modding/player-run servers.

    Playing again on PC after a couple runs months ago on PS3. Got an ENB filter going and shit the game looks and runs 10x better. Now if only I could squash the semi-frequent CTDs I get when warping to bonfires...

    My first impression is gonna decide everything (for me) with this tech.

    One shot? I'll treat it like anything else, yes it has to be good, if it isn't but then something else is or it is improved, so be it. Good enough for me.

    Well, it really depends on whether it's 100% immersive or not.. of course I am not going to discount the entire tech, but besides OR there isn't really a lot of comparable hardware coming. So if this fails it's not gonna be something I would be very happy about when I would buy the CV1.. maybe I should wait for the revision of that? Sigh... can't decide.

    I hope I can test it somewhere close-by
