I've got a TiVo here with Time Warner providing, and I'm not a big fan. TiVo itself is pretty slow (and this is a newer model), and while I'm not sure if it's TiVo or the cable box, channels just present black screens sometimes until the TiVo is rebooted... which takes like ten minutes. The only thing I like about it is it doubles as a streaming box very easily.

Also, On Demand stations simply don't work.

I remember him demoing Spore, or as I like to call it, the reason I can't get hyped about anything ever again.

Guess I'm the only person who thought weapon degradation added to the game? The preferred way of handling combat, at least through the early game, was to avoid it. Once you got your weapon and repair skills up, degradation became pretty much a non issue.

Not sure how I missed them - kind of odd, but fired up the Avernum series last night, having a blast. Usually not a fan of turned base combat, but so far I am enjoying myself.

For the longest time I disregarded them for their, ahem, "retro" presentation... but I started Escape From the Pit a couple years ago and was immediately hooked.

I know it sounds crazy, but every organic, unpredictable, adrenaline-pumping encounter with other people you have in that game, makes the previous couple hours of running around doing next to nothing SO WORTH IT. There's nothing else like it, period. That's why it's popular.

I get that from invasions in Dark Souls. It helps that Dark Souls doesn't, you know, suck ass like DayZ.

Blue is *supposed* to have lizards. Or at the very least, *a* lizard.

News Comments > Colin McRae Rally Steam Refunds

I'm sorry, but the only reasonable explanation is that this was a deliberate attempt to mislead consumers. There was a game called Colin McRae Rally released in 1998. *This* game is called Colin McRae Rally.

Only a complete moron would release a game with the exact same title as another and not expect confusion.

Guardians is for all intents and purposes The Avengers by another name. I found both Guardians and Avengers mediocre at best.

I was digging through my PS3 games and stumbled upon Tales of Xillia. Having no recollection of purchasing it, I vaguely recalled playing a bit and being bored in the extreme. Then I skipped on to Ni no Kuni and decided to play that again, instead. A really remarkable game not garnering a quarter as much notice from gamers as it deserves, and an extraordinary cooperative effort between Level 5 and Studio Ghibli.

I like the TV ads for a magical towel that you soak in water and then wrap around your head. It magically cools down the wearer. With magic. Also, water.

I have read a couple of reviews for D:OS which state that the game is solid for like the first third of the story, but then the rest just feels like filler, like they didn't have the time to really polish the whole thing, so they just polished far enough to get themselves some good reviews.

This is immensely true. The first area includes some small dungeons, a smattering of things to see/do on the moderately sized overland map, and a modest town with varied NPCs and buildings and whatnot.

The second area's "town" is about three buildings, one of which has every skill trainer and shop sitting in exactly the same spot, and none of those characters speak more than one line. It's like a way station in an MMO.

Regardless, you should play it if you are a fan of CRPG. There's been a huge dearth of them so it's best to take what you can get.

DOS is a top notch RPG that deserves the success it is receiving.

It's a pretty good RPG whose success can be largely attributed to its filling a gaping whole in recent video gaming.

Just got back from Guardians and have to say I'm pretty impressed. Heck of a first outing. Can't wait to see what they do next.


Complete opposite. The humor was juvenile, the plot beyond paper thin, and the action was... your typical CGI sploogefest.

Critics are getting way way wayyyyyy too complacent with Marvel movies.

I think it would be fun to try that again, but on Monday I think we'll end up playing something with a little more action.

Like, say, Payday 2?

Anyways it sounds like the game you are envisioning is Monaco.

Now I see this shit again. All the flashy shit remind me of MMOs, which I definitely don't want to be reminder of when playing a singleplayer game. And what's with the tactical view, really?! When I move my mouse, I don't expect the entire world to move instead of my cursor. What crazy dude decided to make the cursor some sort of unmovable centerpiece while we drag the camera around like we're in a freaking hovercraft!?

Well if those little UI labels were any indication I'd say this was console footage...

Having not followed this game at all, this looks pretty good.

Are we crazy? Are we doing it wrong? Should every person in the company be working on the same thing? Should HBO make one TV show at a time? Should Warner Brothers make one movie at a time?

I'm just gonna stop there at the guy comparing his podunk studio to the most highly lauded TV network and a film studio that's been around for a century.

Fantastic combat system? Non-mage classes stop gaining new skills after 13-15, and what few skills they have are either useless or redundant.

Wow I had no idea it was also a last-gen game. I figured Destiny was supposed to be a poster child for the new hardware. But it looks like I'm not playing the beta anyways.

The only requirement will be an Xbox Live Gold or PlayStation Plus subscription, depending upon your console of choice.
