List of nominees for those interested (needed some digging): http://lzygmrs.com/general/golden-joystick-2014-awards-nominees-revealed/4865/

Pewdiepie sucks, but that list of nominees was full of total unknowns. If you're going to nominate people only known by gaming journalists, then restrict the voting to journalists.

Wait, you think only journalists know:
Anita Sarkeesian
Palmer Lucky
Aisha Tyler (she's frickin' Lana Kane)
Dean Hall
Rami Ismail

Seriously?

Ok, so I might have glossed over Aisha Taylor, Dean Hall (if you put DayZ next to his name) and Anita Sarkeesian (who I only know from GamerGate), but I honestly had no idea about the rest

I actually gave it another go after some friends signed up. The PvE aspect is a joke, but I definitely see the PvP having a lot of potential what with mounted combat, collision, etc. My brother and I had a lot of fun last night pushing afks into mobs and trapping people inside buildings thanks to the collision!

I like PoE. The materia system took some getting used to, but it does add a ton of depth and customization. My beef? The drops. D3 drops a legendary every 5 minutes, but PoE is 2x stingier than D2. At least low-mid level uniques/gems are obtainable through trading - they're very cheap in standard league - so the game is a lot of fun to someone who just wants to blast through the 3 act campaign on Normal and Cruel by themselves.

PoE's writing/story (or lack thereof) is also 10000000000000000000000000000x better than D3's.

Yeah, first thought was Barbarian Invasion. Late Roman Empire. The Internet collectively yawns. I'll buy it when it's 90% off on Steam. Maybe.

At least they're supposedly bringing back family trees, the thing is, why am I paying for a stripped feature through DLC in the first place? It will probably be handled poorly like in Shogun 2 where it's just window dressing anyway.

Also, Rome 2 was pretty lousy at handling horse archers despite clumsily adding in the Parthian shot. I doubt they'll make additional improvements for the Huns.

Most sports aren't even sports. They're glorified hobbies. Baseball, golf, et al. are all hobbies IMO.

Eh, baseball requires some pretty phenomenal athletic ability, both in terms of sheer physical prowess and in terms of mechanical skill. No, it does not involve a lot of running back and forth, but I find it really hard to watch a short stop make a successful diving catch, spin onto a knee, and then make an accurate, fast throw in a split second to make the double play, and then, having watched such a feat, turn around and liken the game in which it occurred to darts, pool, or golf.

Baseball is a hobby. Football, hockey, soccer, etc. are all sports.

Baseball is a sport, numbnuts.

I can't make it past the character creation screen. All the faces are too otherworldly beautiful with long gorgeous eyelashes. I like to make my characters to, you know, look like they've actually been been in a swordfight.

Pass.

EA just needs to make good games on the cheap (god, what a concept) instead of wasting shareholder money on some hotshot marketing guy who's just going to pull stuff out of his butt anyway. They could even use the extra money to hire more PR guys!

Gamebreaking bugs meant that Heroes 6 didn't work for me more than a short time. The demo worked perfectly well though. HOMM3 is far superior to anything before or after. And it's cheap on GOG.

HOMM3>HOMM2>HOMM4>HOMM1>HOMM5>HOMM6

So I don't have high hopes for #7.

I agree with that ranking, except I'd put HoMM4 in second place. I know it's the bastard child, but I really looooove HoMM4. The best campaign stories and music in the series IMO.

Not exactly the best game to get with a Playstation for an 11 year old kid. Especially with no memory card

(That kid was me.)

Something about sleep paralysis? People all over the world have experienced it. Also, seeing numbers like 444 and 1111 a lot. To me that specifically, has happened ever since i was a kid. Something i really do not talk about. More so when i was in an vehicle accident; where sometimes i wake up and see scrolling numbers along the boundaries of walls. Random numbers scrolling, then they fade.

Wow, you see numbers just appear? Freaky. I wouldn't believe you if I didn't already experience sleep paralysis myself. It sucks that people think I'm bullsh*tting them when I try tell them what it's like.

LOL. Give my kids priority boarding or I'm telling the Twitterverse! God, what a massive douche. Last time I checked kids take up a whole seat too. If you get split up, passengers are usually more than happy to switch seats. I'm flying Southwest from Denver in a couple of weeks anyway, I'll be sure to give Kimberly a thumbs up if I see her!

I also think I got Battlefield 3 from one of these giveaways. Not really sure since I haven't felt the need to install Origin.

Civs. In. Spaaaaaaaaace.

Really looking forward to it. I like the technology web idea. Still, it doesn't seem to have as much personality as Alpha Centauri.

PC Games! Now you can buy them while they aren't even done!

I seriously have no clue who they're even trying to reach with this. The people interested in early access games will really most likely get them through digital distribution. Confused parents and casual gamers who still buy retail copies aren't even likely to understand what this early access stuff means, and they'll be upset when they find out the game they thought they bought is actually a barebones alpha.

Exactly. If I'm buying a game from a store I'm fully expecting a finished product. A threshold is being crossed and Uber is going to get a lot of bad press out of this (maybe a good thing?). That said, this technically is a better deal for the buyer than preordering the game and, like preorders, the publisher also makes a sale before the bad reviews come out

Fuck yeah, the Deathwing! The first Space Marine chapter has been woefully under-represented in games. Nice to see them finally get their due.
