While I don't necessarily approve of how Mike has handled the whole controversy, the fact that "dickwolves" are even an issue in the first place is just sad. How can anyone be offended by something so blatantly absurd? And if rape jokes are unacceptable regardless of context, what about jokes involving theft, robbery, murder, domestic violence, extortion, torture, kidnapping, etc? Surely the victims of the aforementioned crimes would be sensitive to any mention of them. Hell, how about we ban any jokes that could possibly offend anyone anywhere? Why are rape jokes the only ones that are apparently worth censoring?

Blacklist is good stuff but the occasional forced alarm or confrontation is incredibly annoying. For example, there's one mission where you have to capture a guy on a subway train. They could have easily made this a stealth-able mission (as they did with the train level in Pandora Tomorrow), but instead they made it a shootout where every enemy knows where you are and is just waiting for you to enter through the only possible entrance.

Saint's Row 4 is fun but it's pretty obvious that it was rushed. Aside from recycling Steelport and most of the NPCs, vehicles and outfits, most of the side-quests are really half-assed and simply consist of "Go complete four random activities."

Thankfully, the superpowers change the gameplay enough to compensate for this but still, it would have been nice to see more original content.

I had no issues with Hotline Miami's controls either. It controls like any other top-down action game with mouse aim.

Initial previews have been surprisingly positive. Not sure if the game is worth $34 yet but things are looking good so far.

This is going to fail hard. $20 for the base game + $15 for each character pack? When the game's competitors are all F2P? Why would anyone play this instead of DotA2 or LoL?

Super Amazing Wagon Adventure! Woot!


New gift option in case the person has Snuggle Truck already?

Don't hate. Super Amazing Wagon Adventure is great.

Anyway, glad to see some much-deserved titles finally getting greenlit.

Looking good. I like how many choices are offered to the player and the combat seems solid enough.

Apparently this game uses GameSpy for multiplayer matchmaking, which is pretty hilarious. Why would they do that when they're already using Steamworks for everything else?

Blacklist is significantly better than Conviction. There are still some forced confrontations but for the most part, you can sneak past every enemy. The game gives you the most points for doing so as well. There are also side-missions, which I actual prefer to the story missions because they're more open-ended and don't have any cutscenes or other nonsense. Grim's side-missions are specifically tailored towards pure stealth players too.

Mark & Execute is still around and there are still some scenarios that were clearly designed with it in mind, but all of these scenarios can by beat by other means so M&E is still optional. If you really have no self-restraint, you can play on the highest difficulty which disables M&E.

I don't like the way there's 'convenient' checkpoint-like stashes where you magically resupply ammo and equipment. Is that standard now?

The stashes are disabled if you play on the highest difficulty.

Basically, if you want the best experience, play on the highest difficulty.

News Comments > Shadow of the Eternals Kickstarter Fails

Not surprised at all. Dyack carries a stigma with him and anyone with any knowledge of the industry will avoid him like a plague. Also, the fact that one of the developers was just arrested for child pornography doesn't help either.

Then there's the fact that Eternal Darkness is easily one of the most overrated games of all time. The sanity events were pure gimmick, 90% of the game consisted of tedious backtracking and lousy combat and most of the characters you played had no real development and offered nothing meaningful to the story.

Wait, are they capping the FPS at 30 for the PC version of NFS: Rivals too? Because that would be really, really dumb.

FYI, the 20% code for GMG doesn't work on games that offer cashback or credit.

You mean like how it happened with Bungie??



Exactly.

What? Since when did Bungie make indie games? Anyway, take a look at how many XBLA and PSN games made their way to PC. Now take a look at how many PS4 indie games are already out or coming out for PC. I don't foresee the trend changing.

Games like The Unfinished Swan would like a word with you.

Guacamelee, Rochard, Toy Soldiers, Mark of the Ninja, Mutant Blobs Attack, Puddle, FEZ, Braid, Super Meat Boy, Iron Brigade, Stacking, Costume Quest, Retrograde, Dyad, Eufloria, PixelJunk Eden, Deadlight, State of Decay, Skullgirls, Bastion, etc, etc would like a word with you.

The whole SP integration thing looks like it would get old real quick. I don't want to watch cutscenes, sit through scripted events or listen to NPC banter while I'm playing a multiplayer game.

I'm pretty sure people stopped associating Tom Clancy with R6 after Ghost Recon, HAWX, EndWar and Splinter Cell. In fact, Tom Clancy isn't even associated with the Tom Clancy brand these days, given the fact that he hasn't actually written anything in years.

I am almost 100% sure they are going to do a Mass Effect style dialogue wheel thing again with Paragon and Renegade choices. And I doubt combat is going to be going back to its Origins roots.

I read that they were tired of the dialogue wheel, but yeah, the combat isn't going to be like in Origins, but more a la Skyrim, it looks like.

Also, they're apparently so enamored with the Cerberus Guardian that they've put him in Dragon Age now. Because nothing spells F U N like an enemy with a shield that can absorb every possible form of attack. (My favorite is when Cerberus Guardian guys step on a fucking mine and get no damage, because after all, they have a riot shield! Rolleyes )

Those shield guys were pretty easy to deal with, weren't they? Just use the levitation power to make them float and they automatically drop their shield.

Pretty sure this is the first time it's been available for pre-order.

If you do pre-order, you should get it from the Humble Store. Not only do you get both a DRM-free copy and Steam key, but the devs get 95% of the revenue, as opposed to the 70% offered by other distributors.

That said, pre-ordering the game on Steam raises its position on the charts, increasing awareness and making other people more likely to buy it too. The guy who made Gunpoint actually requested that people buy his game on Steam instead of directly from him for this very reason.

Forcing people to use a digital distribution system to play your games instead of catering to the masses (Steam) was a really poor business decision and it just causes customer backlash. It is really no wonder why people are jumping from the PC ship.

Wait, what? Since when are people jumping from the PC ship? If anything, it's the exact opposite. PC gaming is only growing in popularity. More and more developers and publishers are supporting the platform and putting more effort into the games they release on it. They wouldn't be doing that if PC wasn't becoming more profitable.
