Horrible looking game, but it's always awesome to see old men duke it out to resolve desputes!

lol. Anybody know if the actor who played the Gorn in the tv episode is still alive?
The voice actor doesn't seem to be Ted Cassidy Arena (Star Trek: The Original Series)

Hopefully, they can afford to hire real writers and gameplay designers now.
How? It didn't meet targets.
If you break sales records in the first week and history of the franchise, it's still not enough? It's a severe management problem, probably the same people who made the idiotic decisions to release the sub par story and game play designs. Additionally not only are they probably including 'executive bonuses' in their 'targets' but also marketing.

Basically corporations try to attach amap to 'targets', delusional amounts of fraud and waste. The game was/is a sales success, just not square enix's 'vision' of bonuses.

Think my point is (just woke and probably rambling ), sooner or later, for better or worst these things catch up with corporations whether is from shareholders or customers. Somebody is lying if record breaking sales aren't enough. In a normal reality, you couldn't ask for better news.

News Comments > Jay Wilson: Auction Houses "Really Hurt" Diablo III

Lying then and lying now. Middlefinger

No way the largest mmog developer/publisher wouldn't know the effect of an Auction House, on an online only game. They knew, they were exploiting gamers and the gamers fought back. Bitches are now admitting failure but still trying to lie their way out of it.

They made their money this is about damage control based on the creditability of their future games and shareholders who are none to happy they backed a pig, instead of a stallion.

Divinity, Divinity...

*shuffles through Steam and Gamefly collections*

Nope, don't own it. If I wanted to get a feeling for what this game would be like, which Larian game should I try? There are several.

EDIT: After watching the video, I think this is kind of fishy. Says these guys are from Sacramento, but they don't sound like they're from Sacramento at all!
Larian Studios=Belgian game developer, stop making fun of their accent!

Divine Divinity is the original (top down similar graphic style to Baldur's Gate), skip/don't play Beyond Divinity (2nd) unless you feel you really must and Divinity II: The Dragon Knight Saga is the newest modern looking 3rd person game.

Could someone remind me how Gamefly works. I'm interested in GUN, was hoping I would get a download code like GMG to use on Steam. Otherwise I'll just wait for it to go on sale, on Steam.

I read their site 'How it works'/FAQ but it seems to mostly talk about how there is a monthly fee to Rent/Play games.


Thanks.

Huh? Ubisoft had nothing to do with Tomb Raider.
Derp! My bad, had Far Cry 3 in what little mind I have left, att.

Crystal Dynamics! Yeah, that's it!

Agree about the hair TressFX, though this patch does look like an improvement. Too bad ubi won't hire people who actually create good gameplay. The constant respawning/spamming of enemies especially in Ziggurat is ridiculous. They just magically appear in places with no possible paths, backed up by Lara getting there by almost inhuman means. Not to mention their delusional use of qt events.

Oh btw, it should be standard issue, as with every Tomb Raider we get nude skins. This one looks really cool, fits with the constant rain. There are also now 3 hair colors red, blonde and black. The wet tank top is the best look so far, nude skins really aren't high quality yet.


I still like Far Cry 3 MUCH better due to it's open world. It's far from perfect but I really don't like feeling boxed in.

Iirc, console hackers have been playing the game for at least a week, so I'm guessing User Reviews won't be empty for long.

Think the big announcement is, their scheme to jack-wank the level capped original players, by taking powers and gold away is working and a HUGE success!

There are tons of testimonials in the announcement too, so you know it's for real and not some phoney baloney marketing pluy... plo... thing. Let's ask Billy Bob, what he thinks. What's it like Billy Bob?
Squeeee! Squeeee!

First I've heard of it, so on the fence, atm. I'll at least vote for it. Reminds me of the late 1990s, and I sure would have played it back then.

BioShock Bonanza can this be correct?
14$ cash, $15 credit, Bioshock, X-Com, *choice game* and there seems to be a %20 off Digital Games as well. So is this technically about $35 US for all this or does my math just suck?

Too bad there are coming out, next to Bioshock Infinite. It will probably jack their sales by 30%.

qte are one of the most pathetic game designs ever created. Along with holding Quick and Hard Save, anytime.

Since there's no evidence it's a profit based decision, it must be some delusional narcissism.

I heard an interview last night on NPR, where he was demoing Infinite to a journalist, though I haven't been able to find it to send to Blue. It seem to be something coinciding with South by Southwest, which raps up tonight, iirc. I did watch this interview as well and liked it.


@ DangerDog, guess I need to look up the definition of egotistical, as it sure didn't seem like it to me. Nor did I notice the lie/semi-lie(s) in the video you linked. He/Irrational has been really up front about how much the game changed over development. Afaik Bioshock really did have an effect on FPSs as far as story depth and character interactions with NPCs.

I just finished Far Cry 3 again, v 105 w Swartz Mod, it's such an huge improvement over Far Cry, in almost every way. Now I'm looking forward to trying Tomb Raider next. All these FPS games seem to have improved, yet of course most of these AAA games are far too console centric but I really don't blame Levine for it.
