Do you know why True Blood stopped being interesting in the least in the last 3-4 seasons? Because that's when they stopped following the books!

Glad to see another state and city working on providing their citizens a vital tool to compete in the 21st century, gigabit broadband. Those states who have signed deals (for loads of cash no doubt) to keep gigabit out of their states are clearly too stupid to realize just how much this will hurt their attractiveness to businesses. Tax breaks only go so far, if business A can't get internet faster than 50MBps they aren't going to move to your state they can get 1GBps for a similar price in another. And you can be damn sure the big cable companies do everything they can to provide as little as they can for as much $ as they possible can.

News Comments > Amazon Buys Twitch
14. Re: Amazon Buys Twitch Aug 25, 2014, 18:30 Fion
 
Why do I get the feeling that this purchase is related to their product line. Everyone knows the available twitch apps on IOS and Android are shit. Same with their purchase of Comixology. Their app isn't shit but owning the biggest digital comic book/graphic novel store around is no small thing.

And yes I'm sure the guys at twitch are happy with this and so am I. If they were going to be bought by someone (and they were to big NOT to have) I'm glad it's not Google. Google has already pushed 3/4 of the game-based channels off the site because of their rights management bullshit. I'd have hated to see that happen on twitch.

GW2 at least there was a fairly recent community uproar over lack of communication but it settled down pretty rapidly. As to the other MMOGs, I'm not sure who has a beef.

Are there people that don't own this yet?

Tens of millions of Steam users? It really isn't that popular of a game.

I don't know why, it's the best stealth/action game since Thief 2 and probably the best game in a year full of great games. Any fans of the genre who haven't played it are really.. really missing out.

You know Bliz, you might retain more players if you actually released content that wasn't locked behind a paywall more than once a year.

As to sequels, I don't expect a WoW sequel for some time, they do have that scifi MMOG in the works but it too is years away because initially they were building a casual MMOG but when WoW subs really started to drop they announced they were rebuilding it from the ground up. You know Blizz, that means at least 3 more years.

News Comments > Metro 2033/Redux Comparison
8. Re: Metro 2033/Redux Comparison Aug 20, 2014, 13:10 Fion
 
I just recently finished Last Light after getting it on the summer sale. It's fantastic and indeed the engine and improved stealth system would certainly work to make a more stunning and enjoyable 2033 which had a horrible stealth system.

At some point I'll be replaying them both again to get the positive endings, even though - at least in 2033 - the negative one is cannon.

Either way they are both tremendous shooters,you cannot beat getting both - with the new engine - for $5!

News Comments > Evolve is Big Gamescom Winner

There's and old Quake 3 mod similar to this, I want to say Goliath mod but it was ages ago. Players switch between normal with one person as the giant robot with super weapons. Who ever kills the giant robot becomes it, winner is who ever spent the most time as the robot. It was crazy fun and I played a tun of it at lan parties. So 4v1 'can' work and 'can' be crazy fun.

Have they showed a match from hunter pov yet? Sure the monsters are cool but I want to see hunter options, powers, upgrading, what ever.

I stopped playing WoW when I realized I was paying $180 a year for content mostly locked beyond a paywall and 2-3 non-paid updates every 2 years. I still know people who play but I could never go back. For them at least I hope its fun.

Hilarious but fatally serious. How many actors or musicians have we lost to overdoses from 'legal' drugs? Popping all kinds of pills to stay wide awake, active and smooth while they perform and then sleeping pills because they are too hopped up to get it naturally. As the popularity of the sport increases (and it's HUGE even here in the US already), people dying from mixing 'legal' substances is going to happen. Hell it already does is e-sport crazed countries like S. Korea.

News Comments > The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt Trailers

Witcher 2 sits unfinished on my desktop. I put an hour or two into it every few weeks but there always seems to be something more current setting next to it. Doesn't help that Dark Souls 2 keeps pulling me back in.

I'm sure I'll have time between now and launch, but there are a LOT Of promising games between now and then as well, and other games I want to finish before their sequels hit as well, like Far Cry 3 which I'm 80% of the way done with.

Oh they got many millions without a doubt. Funny thing is even if it comes out 4 months later on PC or PS4 it'll probably still outsell the Xbox version.

By the time it does us PC gamers will get a better, more polished version. So I can wait.

This has got to be a timed exclusive. Not a chance in hell they'd purposefully avoid releasing the sequel to one of the best games of the year on one console, let alone the one the fewest people own. I'm sure MS payed out the ass in an attempt to give people at least one reason to buy their shitty console, but no amount of money will prevent Square Enix from releasing on all platforms eventually. Just like GTA V. Simply too much money to be made not to.

Spend time and money on making an amazing map so we can fill out the game at 1/50th the cost of making it ourselves.
