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.

Can you guys shut up about Destiny? I don't want to buy a console with only one worthwhile game on it, however crack cocaine-like its euphoric potential may be.

Men will ALWAYS dominate this planet, unless a woman creates an army strong enough to defeat man altogether (and unless there's some kind of sex wars that started and I haven't heard about it then that's probably never going to happen).

Don't be so dramatic. The current upper echelon is still mostly comprised of or immediately descended from rich, white, conservative men. They're going to die off and be replaced by men whose only experience with gross misogyny comes from watching Mad Men. I highly doubt the new breed will be half as resentful or hostile toward women coworkers and employees.

Or maybe real bowling is too fucking expensive, like it is around here. Summers during high school I would head over to the local alley (just ten lanes) where they charged either $1/game or $5/hour/lane during the afternoon.

Most missions are impossible to perform cleanly, let alone on a regular basis.

Since episodes were so front-loaded, it meant the first episode had to cover both the upfront rendering costs and help fund the development of future episodes. If the first episode failed to bring in enough to cover both of those aspects, the game could fizzle altogether. Sin Episodes notably suffered this fate, leaving customers who were invested in the early episodes out in the cold.

Episodes? There was one. I was a big fan of Sin, it had a lot of great features for the time period. The shooting was visceral and the location damage was great. I bought the first episode and then waited months until they admitted they weren't making any more.

Also: Polygon - Do they publish anything that isn't ridiculous click bait? I refuse to check them out just based on the stupid articles that always get linked here.

Don't forget the bewbs.

The last motherboard I bought came with a detachable dongle for the case connections. Very handy in a "why didn't they think of this fifteen years ago" sort of way.

News Comments > Diablo III Two-Handed Weapon Changes
13. Re: Diablo III Two-Handed Weapon Changes Jul 18, 2014, 13:39 PHJF
 
Ramalandi's gift should help that, but the real issue is 1 weapon socket vs 2 weapon sockets.

Except half of classes cannot use two weapons; it's one weapon socket versus one weapon socket and one (far worse) utility socket. Adding a second weapon socket would just push the balance too far away from one handers for wizard, witch, and sader. The PROBLEM is in having a SINGLE gem mandatory for all weapons and the persistent over-usefulness of %Crit/%CritDmg.

The game is fun, sure, but patches like the upcoming 2.1 highlight how unarguably flawed the game was and continues to be at a fundamental design level.

The only bad thing about building my PC is that my (now ancient) Antec 900 case is just too damn small for the latest components. It was never that spacious to begin with, but installing anything now is like trying to pack an elephant into a Porsche, and I'm too cheap to get a new case when this one still does the job.

Armchair scientist strikes again!

Low-mineral
water markedly: 1.) increased diuresis (almost by 20%, on average), body water volume, and
serum sodium concentrations, 2.) decreased serum potassium concentration, and 3.) increased the
elimination of sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium and magnesium ions from the body.

Except for the boss fight, the whole first area was pretty easy for me. Jahar has ice elemental now, and one of my PCs can call either spider or fire elemental. It seems enemies prefer targeting whatever is closest (which is usually my summons) rather than actually doing something intelligent like, say, filling my poor mage's face with arrows.

Developers that work their asses off for two years solid probably don't come into the the office release day saying, "Well, let's get some quality DLC out ASAP!" So the DLC is left to a third party who either can't match the quality or consistency of the initial product.

I wouldn't recommend Divinity II. While not bad per se, it is fairly repetitive and uninspired. Dungeons are the worst kind of awful, the castle attack missions are tedious after the first, and combat is very bland. The game lacks the charm of its predecessor and instead charts a course for the mainstream.

Beyond Divinity is an atrocious game best forgotten.

Seems when the entire game is won by a single score at the very end, it does seem more luck than skill.

Did you see the goal? Nothing lucky about it.

It isn't meaningful to me until it impacts gameplay, and I don't find 30fps to impact gameplay to me.

There is an enormously evident difference between 30 and 60 when playing a video game, especially in any game requiring shooting or driving, or some other mechanism highly dependent on user input and timing. The faster the screen is updated, the faster the user can make his inputs accurately and on time.

Take a game normally played at 60FPS and lock it to 30 and tell me you can't notice anything off.

Back from the beach whereupon I read:

Margaret Atwood - Handmaid's Tale
China Mieville - Embassytown
Neil Gaiman - Neverwhere

I'll take something from Gaiman over Zelazny any day. Amber was so god damn tedious.
