I remember when this game was called "Sanctuary"...4 years ago, maybe 5.

This game will crater just like Tabula Rasa and just like Auto Assault.

Keep licking at the taint of social media, you assclowns. Everybody needs to know what you had for breakfast and your most mundane and insipid thoughts.

...there is some satisfaction that comes from the "it just works" stance of consoles...

Unless you're Sony, with month long network outages and breached security. Or Microsoft, with eponymous RROD on all Xenon based Xbox 360s. Or Nintendo, with the Wiis connection problems at launch.

The only tech that "just works" doesn't exist. The idea of a complex device functioning perfectly, unassisted, endlessly is a myth.

Every computer, whether it be labled a "console" or a "PC", is going to have problems. Some get ironed out with revisions and updates, some are insurmountable design flaws.

The only thing that "just works" is an advertising campaign, which you parroted.

Oh God! HOW WILL THEIR USERBASE SURVIVE?!?!?!? Hours free of grammatical butchering, tired lolcat reposts from imgur and intense descriptions of what someone had for lunch. The horror!

Everyone always forgets Homeworld: Cataclysm.

There are three Homeworld games and I am unashamed that I love them all.

The preliminary sales list actually doesn't look terrible. Sega acquiring Relic is especially hopeful to me, since it was Sega that published part of the "Total War" series, which is hardcore strategy. That at least seems hopeful for a possible Homeworld 3.

This is exactly what I told a friend. Bethesda was the next runner up for Relic. Being owned by the same company that owns Creative Assembly is the best thing possible for the possibility of seeing a Homeworld 3.

...whereas driving in GTA feels like you're driving something with actual WEIGHT attached to it.

Yeah, like an anchor, a piano or a blue whale. The vehicle physics in GTA4 were fucking terrible.

Why did a subcompact feel like a 1976 Cadillac Eldorado, complete with ridiculous body roll?

It could be a PC renaissance in some ways.

Or the death of PCs as an open gaming platform.

- DADES - This is a signature of my name, enjoy!

You are correct, "we" would not. If it happened to my daughter, I'd be having that conversation with her and asking her "What the actual fuck were you thinking?"

But hey, let's focus on the big evil website instead of taking in to account the rampant stupidity and the the personal responsibility required for being rampantly stupid.

One of the women had her boyfriend take pictures of her unaware, she didn't have a choice.

One out of how many? I do feel for her but she's obviously the minority.

...one stupid choice shouldn't be a profitable venture for a (insert any company here).

If that were true, we'd have significantly less corporations in the world. Most corporations are built on the very idea that your average person makes stupid choices.

I wouldn't say it's dumb.

Then you are forgiving to the Nth degree.

Whether it's the Internet or 1973, it's ridiculously stupid to have compromising photos taken of yourself for anything other than professional uses. If you're in to porn, then showing your assets has a very clear career advantage. Being in accounts payable or HR, not so much. Fun little perks are like getting roadhead on your way to her/his parents for dinner. Shit that, unless you are directly caught by a LEO, isn't going to come back and haunt you 5 years down the road.

It has nothing to do with trust and everything to do with comporting yourself like there is a day that exists after tomorrow. The stupid shit you do today on devices that can store and easily transfer that data to third and unknown parties will come back to bite you in the ass. It's not an "if", it's a "when". There is zero possibility that "never" is going to factor in to the equation on when something that egregiously stupid comes back to haunt you.

Sorry, Rigs. I had the reply window open and had left for a bit before I came back and responded. Didn't even see what you said until a few minutes ago.

Where towns/dungeons are a completely separate map. Great choice.



And, as Dades said, so did GTAIV. However, that wasn't the criteria that The Half Elf set forth. Further, Skyrim was playable at launch on the PC for most people and wasn't saddled with a crippling performance problem even on the most high end of machines.

Advantage: Skyrim.

...agree that Windows 8 is just perfectly fine, AS LONG AS YOU TURN IT BACK INTO WINDOWS 7.

Creston

Actually, it works excellently for me exactly as it came off the image...because I also am using it with a touchscreen as was the original design and intent.

On a regular KB+M setup, it's a bipolar, schizophrenic mess.

This guy, however, is an unfunny asshole with an irritating and distracting lisp who is trying desperately to be Yahtzee, down to even ripping off some of the gags and artwork.

His gripe about the Weather app, and not knowing how to stop this evil demon from raping his Ninjas vs Godzilla essay, is actually directly addressed by Windows itself when you boot it up the first time after install.

So not only is this guy lazy and incompetent, he's too ignorant to even pay attention to the OS itself which tells him how to address his "problem".

...I'll just refer you back to all the angst over FO3: "IT'S NOT FALLOUT!!!!!"

IT WASN'T FALLOUT!!!! IT WAS OBLIVION WITH GUNS!!!!!!!!!!! WHAAAARGABL!

Sorry, it just had to be done.


A TV series could be done, and done well, however there are far too many post-apocalyptic shows on now. I think we've reached the saturation point with them to the point where the average viewer will not watch it simply because it is yet another Jericho/Jeremiah/Falling Skies/Revolution/The Walking Dead to them.

Now a Fallout movie could be awesome. You could do a movie about the days leading up the attempted assasination of Courier 6 or you could do week in the life of one of Paladin Ryczek's recruits. It's a very rich universe that, I think, is better suited to a large screen experience.

You'd have to pay me to even consider going to Australia on a vacation. 40C and above? Yeah.. no.

I'm actually moving there! 40C is only 104F which is about your average summer heat in Texas. So not much of a change for me.
