The problem with tech demos is they have no scope. It's all fine and good making a perfect-looking five minute animation, but good luck developing a forty-hour RPG that looks like that.

Joel was doing the right thing for the wrong reasons - his internalized guilt/grief over his daughters death manifesting in a familial bond with Ellie.

He was being a selfish dick, too sorry for himself to reconcile losing his daughter and opting to forsake a potentially better future for humanity. The choice wasn't his to make, hence the last scene of the game; Ellie would have sacrificed herself. She spent the entire game pining for the childhood she never had.

Just look at the Youtube comments. You've got people calling for the ability to kill Jews, kill children, kill "islamists and homosexuals", kill war veterans, the elderly, pregnant women, people want a Ferguson mod so they can kill black people.

And therein lies the true power of Hatred: it unifies people of all walks of life! No discrimination, just kill everyone!

Game devs/publishers can ban players from online servers for any reason whatsoever. Virtually every online game includes this explicit clause in the fine print, on the box, and when signing up for accounts.

Besides, if you need the carrot on a stick approach of constant level ups to keep you interested in a game, then maybe you should reconsider why you're playing it in the first place.

Well I'm not playing PoE for its perfectly forgettable story, bland NPCs or its stock high fantasy setting. I play mostly for combat, which is kept a lot more interesting via continual character progression.

Man, what on earth did you do? I'm almost at Twin Elms and I just made level 9...

Aside from doing all quests/tasks I came upon (and I'm sure I didn't find them all), the Warden Bounties give a metric fuckton of XP.

Seems more like a case of reach exceeding grasp. Pillars at least has a lot fewer core problems than Wasteland, a game which was most definitely not ready at release.

I *really* dislike hitting a level cap before I finish a game, and I hit it before even entering Twin Elms. I just lose all motivation to do stuff when I don't see my party improve as a result.

The dog has a very limited intelligence and I just don't see it inventing things, building things or coming up with insights that could improve human existence

Yeah because every person on the planet is attempting to "improve human existence"...

I still haven't found a rogue companion, and the only acceptable melee character I have is still Eder. There's a serious imbalance in the layout of the companions. I started on Hard/Expert with a wizard, and of course the first guy I run into is... a wizard. At a party level of 7 Eder remains the sole reason I survive most engagements.

I've been really bummed out with how boring spells are. Getting a new spell level in D&D was such a huge event, and here it barely registers.

Having finished Bloodborne, I finally sunk my teeth into Pillars on Hard/Expert. Not having a visible AoE for my wizards is a serious pain in the dick when it seems every damage spell is a fucking cone.

The great thing is I have walked into rooms, surveyed the potential enemies within, and declined to combat (looking at you, Raedric). I like to see a game that doesn't hand victory to the player on silver platters.

See I don't have a problem with that and I wouldn't call it illegal. Countries have spies. They have spy organizations. They spy on other countries. That's what they do. I'm glad the US does it.

Except many of the target nations are allies of The States, with one of America's most intrusive surveillance systems being in place in the EU.

Any advertising campaign including hashtag(s) is by definition juvenile, as twitter has long since become the latest battleground upon which corporate goons and out-of-touch mouthpieces painfully petition the 18-29 demo for acknowledgement.

Nobody cares if the joke is or was offensive. I sort of care that a content creator changed their product to avoid offending a tiny amount of little whiners. I seriously doubt their bottom line would have been affected had they ignored the moral outrage. One would think in this post South Park era people would finally understand that being offended does not mean being victimized.

Furthermore, I leave you with this, which I'm sure you want stricken from historical record. Why don't you get started by writing your Congressman. I'm sure they'd love to hear from you.
