Cutter, the world is not getting worse. In general it is getting a lot better (though maybe not for you personally). Less violence, less disease, less poverty, more democracy. Have a look at "The Better Angels of our Nature" by Steven Pinker, a very well-researched book about how (contrary to popular belief) we actually live in the least violent period since the dawn of humanity. Even the world wars were not that bad compared to many historical conflicts (in proportion to population).

I don't buy the general doom & gloom scenario, with the possible exception of global catastrophes like an asteroid hit. People have been saying that the world is going to hell in a handbasket since hell and handbaskets were invented, but it is just not the case.

exactly right man. i didn't wanna pick on cutter specifically, but his gloom'n doom pessimism really is not borne out in the least by reality.

count me in with the optimists in blue's camp. in a hundred years i'm hoping we'll have an offworld colony, and possibly a ship on it's way to another star.

Who wants a PS4 Destiny beta code? I have 2 to give away.


OK, WTF? Bungie has the firehose turned on! 13.2Gb in 47 seconds! Wow. Nevermind, it was 3Gb in 47 seconds. Still fast, but now I am DLing 10Gb.

If you get in, you'll have to keep trying to connect to PSN and then Bungie.

will the codes work on pc or xbone? if so i'll take one.

This game hasn't changed much lately. At this rate it will be finished in 5 years or so.

some games deserve an infinitely evolving dev cycle, and this is one of them. personally i hope it eventually gets to where we have to work our asses off to make contact with other players.

brazil found out what happens when you try to out-possess germany. they high press, get your midfield or (gasp!) defense to cough up the ball, bam! it's in the back of your net before you can even get back on defense. those guys are just machines out there, with their tactics, with their passing, with their fitness. and they're mostly big dudes too.

I agree, it looks amazing. I just hate the gaminess of it, all the stuff I mentioned yesterday, all those console compromises, all those simplifications. They detract from reality, and it breaks the immersion. I can't believe I'm in this world when everything has tool tips, when damage displays in numbers on people, and when I'm in 3rd person view.

i agree the overall easymode design of modern games is somewhat insulting to us oldtimers, but i don't feel it's that big a deal. after playing for awhile they don't even register to my brain anymore. i finally started playing through assassin's creed 3 and despite the consolization, it really doesn't bother me anymore. the only thing that remains to memory is the onscreen action, the character design, and the dialogue you share.

gameplay is eternally transitional anyway - that's why i don't put much stock into griping about it. the innovative first person of wolfenstein to our younger selves is the restrictive, chained experience to us today. really, anything short of holodeck VR is unrealistic so i'm not sure how people say one method of gameplay is superior to another. heck, lots of people still prefer the constraints of turnbased gaming over realtime. Civ 4/5/6 is proof enough of that.

for me, the design of the DA series was such that combat was always subservient to the narrative anyway, and in that regard it's done a fine enough job. if in DA3, they've made the world far larger, with more immersive graphics, design, and character interaction, and combat isn't totally unfair one way or another, that's all i need.

a blender isn't art, and if you can't see the difference, well, i'm afraid you're the idiot. there are certainly degrees of quality of art; we're not just talking about pure functionality like a blender.

i promise you you've qualitatively judged a film in such manner - wes anderson films are a little too offbeat for my tastes, but overall still good films.

or, art itself - van gough's brush strokes are too broad for my liking. i prefer the more minute dabbling of monet, but van gough is still among the best.

so why should games be judged any differently? answer, it shouldn't, and only off-the-scale biased expectations could make people think that a worthy experience can be truly awful.

preeeeeetty game. i don't care how much haterade you guys pour on this, i'm going to play the hell out of it. i loved DAO and DA2 was still a good, enjoyable experience. a lot of you are too exacting in your expectations - it wasn't the bleeding edge masterpiece we'd hoped for, but failing to live up to that, anything can still be a good game. people just need to keep in the mind the full spectrum of possibilities it could've been, not just that 'it's not a masterpiece; therefore, sucks'.

Yo, X7, Bungie's site now lets you pick your format. And apparently we each get 3 beta keys.


Sweet. Thanks for the heads up!

7-1 against Brazil??? Guess the US wasn't as bad as people here made out.

yeah i tried to keep telling people what a machine germany were and what would happen if we got into a shootout with them, but people just kept insisting we were just the terrible team they all thought. we weren't nearly as good as them, but also not as bad as the possessions stats suggest. it was just down to tactics.

Is this score a validation of Klinsmann's stategy for the US vs. Germany match?

i feel so. our best chance of winning was to defend all day and try to steal a goal at the end which we almost did. to try to play with them would've resulted in a similar blowout.

Yea, kind of crazy. I don't think it an accident.

And, I'm fairly certain that is an F-18, but still a cool video.

Definitely an F-16. Freeze the vid at 0:16, and you'll see the characteristic single underside air intake and single rear engine. F-18s have two of each.

you're an aviation buff too JD? heh, cool. pretty easy to identify it was an f16. btw, do you go by JD-Reyer, or J-Dreyer?

i wouldn't trust that thing for a million bucks. hit a thick patch of water, or bounce down the slide the wrong way, catch a little air under you, and you're flying off into space. yes i could see they put fencing around it. have fun being extruded through wiring at terminal velocity.

edit: i believe there's a video out there of this exact thing happening. dunno if it's on the same slide though.
