I know this is off topic, but I got an email stating that Rock Star has officialy announced Grand Thieft Auto V for the PC this fall.

The link is to long so I cant post it. Maybe Blues will post it officially now.

I'm pretty sure he already posted it a couple of days ago when the news was officially revealed.

Nice little jab at Steam but not really effective coming from EA. Most of the games in that sale are not ones that people will actually play and clever jabs aren't going to make up for Origin's lackluster selection.

I will get Wolf eventually, just so much to play, and some of the video reviews make it seem kind of arcadey.....

When has Wolfenstein ever been known for its realism..? It's no more "arcadey" than any of its predecessors. However, it does have way better writing and style than any of the previous games. The combat's a lot of fun too. Weapons are very satisfying to use and enemies die in brutal fashion.

I wasn't expecting much of The New Order but I was very pleasantly surprised.

This is why the fee-moaning on MMO's just don't make sense to me. If you like the MMO, you'll put 30+ hours a month in it at least, which is more than the avarage 20 hours you put in another game. Difference is you pay only $13,- for the fee and $45,- for the 20 hours game.

The issue isn't so much about quantity but quality. Sure, MMOs technically offer hundreds (perhaps thousands) of hours of gameplay but how much of that gameplay is actually enjoyable? Take away the grinding, the fetch quests, the FedEx quests, the tedious traveling, the waits for PvP matches, the waits for mobs to respawn so you can farm specific items, etc, and how many hours of fun do you actually get?

Damn! I just preordered this thing yesterday! Urk

Bit premature, perhaps. I don't think they've even shown any gameplay footage yet.

This has a lot of potential, especially if they're willing to tackle more interesting concepts like morale, collateral damage, etc. That said, apparently the civilians were invincible in the press demo. Not exactly the most reassuring fact.

Yea have done that - but the first video showed parkour chases....i dunno....underwhelmed....

The best chases are the ones against other players after their failed attempts to hack you.

2. Separate the message from the messenger. Sarkeesian is an imperfect messenger, yes. She gets some of the details wrong, and she can go overboard (although you kind of have to with an issue like this, as being delicate won't get you far). However, the general thrust of her message is right. She's exposing the multitude of ways that sexism pervades our common culture. They only way to address a problem is to first recognize that it exists. By attacking the messenger, you're either missing the message or indirectly defending it. Try and keep an open mind about what she is saying, not necessarily how she is saying it.

I don't think anyone is going to argue that sexism doesn't exist in popular culture. However, it's perfectly reasonable to criticize Sarkeesian for her flawed arguments. In her last video, she relied heavily on antiquated examples of Nintendo characters to support her argument about sexist gender representations, as if Nintendo is in any way representative of modern gaming as a whole. In an attempt to appear fair and balanced, she then cited a few indie games that didn't have sexist representations yet neglected to mention the numerous high-profile, mainstream games like Bioshock, Last of Us, Walking Dead, Remember Me, Portal, Tomb Raider, Saints Row, Fallout, Mass Effect, Dragon Age, The Wolf Among Us, Assassin's Creed, The Bureau, XCOM, WH40K: Space Marine, Splinter Cell, etc.

If you're going to present an argument, you need to make sure your logic is sound and your examples relevant. You also shouldn't ignore examples that undermine your argument. A bad argument deserves to be picked apart, even if the message behind it holds some merit.

Great game that was sadly overlooked. I wonder if the historical setting just doesn't resonate with most people.

They lost their publisher and are trying to fund this independently. They put it up on Indiegogo a while back but failed horribly. Disappointing, as I liked the previous games. The description on the website seems outdated too. I'm pretty sure they are no longer doing a X360 version. The description on the Steam Greenlight page seems more up-to-date, though it makes no mention of the other characters. It wouldn't surprise me if those were cut so that the game's scope would be more manageable.

It's pretty sad that UBIsoft had such piss-poor timing with the release. Everyone who pirated this fucker is playing it over the holiday weekend, while the rest of us suckers and our useless preorders have to wait until the work-week starts again.

Pretty sure they didn't plan for the game to be leaked and pirated so early. They could have released the game last Tuesday but then they'd be competing with Wolfenstein and Transistor. To my knowledge, there are no other high profile releases on the 27th.

Does the steam version not launch uplay? Saving money is great, but one of the reasons I'm still not pulling the trigger is having to split games off from steam if I got it from GMG. I've had HORRIBLE luck with Uplay in the past on AC4 and other games.

All of Ubisoft's first-party games require Uplay regardless of where you buy them. Watch Dogs on Steam will simply launch Uplay and then Watch Dogs from there.

Cancelled my pre-order. It's too fishy that they're spending all this time on viral videos and shit instead of allowing their game to be reviewed after it's been gold for so long.

They've shown plenty of gameplay footage. Having embargos that don't lift until release is a standard practice. It's in no way an indication of a crappy game. Wolfenstein and Transistor both had release day embargos.

They have A lot more money from Private Investors man...

SC refuse to take the 20 million check from an Investor because they don't need Him anymore

Even if that's true, have those investors given Braben $44 million? I doubt it.

Seemed apparent that there was something up when there so many reports of people who "got the game early" having performance problems, graphics issues, and so on, but people who actually really had the physical game seemed to be talking about a different experience.

The legit version of the game is still poorly optimized based on what I've seen and read. Consumes way too much VRAM given the game's relatively unimpressive visuals.

I guess you could argue that you might want to delay picking up health so you can maximize your overcharge but that doesn't apply to ammo or armor.

Grabbing that big 25 or 50 armor pickup when you're missing like 5 armor is a bit wasteful. Especially if you're on Wyatt timeline where your armor pickup values are increased.

Except armor is so plentiful that if you leave a pickup behind, you really have no reason to backtrack and grab it later (if the level even allows backtracking). In 99% of cases, there's really no reason to not automatically pick up health, ammo and armor.

As for the AI, yeah, the stealth AI is pretty bad. Very imperceptive and extremely delayed reaction times. It really breaks down in the sections that are meant to be played stealthy and you have to deal with the melee guards. For some reason, the designers thought it would be best if the guards casually walk towards you and fight you one at a time if you're detected. I'm guessing they did that so that non-stealth would be more viable in those sections. All it really accomplishes is making the AI look retarded.

-Have to push a button in order to pick up ammo and health instead of just walking over it

That's a valid complaint. There's never any reason to not pick up health or ammo or armor. Therefore, there's no reason to force the player to manually pick them up. I guess you could argue that you might want to delay picking up health so you can maximize your overcharge but that doesn't apply to ammo or armor.

Just like with Wolf: It don't have to be perfect, it just has to be good.
Are you playing it? If so, how is it?

Wolf? I like it. I'm only an hour or so in, wish I had more time. It doesn't reinvent the wheel, but it's a fun old school shooter.


Is it MORE than just a shooter though. Can you get out of situations or complete the entire game with using nonlethal weapons like Deus Ex?

Nope. It's not a hybrid game like Deus Ex or Dishonored. It's a shooter with stealth elements.

For anyone who hasn't bought watch dogs yet, but wants it cheaper, I present this thread. It does work.

It works if you don't live in the U.S. I got another e-mail with a code specifically for U.S. customers. Much easier than using proxies to try and trick the store into thinking you live in the U.K.

You wish Batman would just start killing the villains. I mean, you'd think after 3+ outings (Asylum, City etc), the population of Gotham would be getting a little tired of being whittled down by homicidal maniacs, especially given their reoffending rate.

There are worse things than death. Like being crippled and left alive by the Batman. That's how it works. Killing people is easy. Crippling them equates to fear. If you were a criminal and Bats asked you for information and your choices were to tell him or spend life in a wheelchair shitting in a bag, what would you choose?

Except Batman doesn't cripple anyone. Two-Face, Penguin, Joker, Harlequinn, Scarecrow, Clayface, Mr. Freeze, Killer Croc... he beats them up, tosses them in Arkham/Blackgate, then they inevitably break out and people die. Rinse and repeat.
