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

The Deathwing are not a chapter they are the elite 1st company of the 1st chapter Dark Angels and their successor chapters

Yeah, I know. I can see how my comment made it seem like I thought the Deathwing were a chapter

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

Oh lord. And the US wonders why it has an obesity epidemic.
You mean it has nothing to do with people sitting on their ass all day? There's your difference, between then and now.

Plenty of people do physical work all day long, I'm one of them. I meant it more as jab of actually considering them athletes in the first place. Professional gamers? Sure. Athletes? No. Hell, I don't even consider pro golfers or baseball players athletes.

You mean being in Academic Decathlon and becoming a Mathlete didn't make me a jock in high school!? World. Shattered.

I understand you need skyrim's dlc for the mods, I'm not really interested in playing the dlc that much.

Don't know of any "must have mods" that requires the DLCs. I still play off the base game with around 30~ currently updated mods.

It would be cool to have a videogame playing POTUS. Maybe in another 20 years.

I don't consider Creative Assembly a quality developer or Sega a respectful publisher. It's a great premise, but I wouldn't have high expectations for this one.

I never buy the "I'd rather look at a girl's ass while I'm playing cuz I'm totally an alpha male" tripe either. Any guy who's that insistent on playing females secretly wants to become one. There's nothing else to it.

I'm sure you're kidding around because of what he said but haha wow that's uh really funny.

If your protagonist isn't chugging beer, wearing a wife beater and driving a huge truck (phallic replacement) then you just aren't a mans man!

Yeah, both arguments are pretty silly. For the record though, if I had a choice, I'll always play as a guy.

You like looking at dudes? I don't. I'd rather a femshep option in every game please.

I don't buy the "I can't get immmersed" crap either, as if "believing" you are a ninja assassin time traveler is any more or less realistic or engaging than pretending you are a female doing the same thing.

Well seeing as the target market for these games is probably 99.9% male I can't imagine too many would care, much less want to play a chick. I certainly have no desire to do so. 'I'm going to stab that fucker in the heart! Oh fooey I broke a nail.'

According to Bioware, 20% of players pick Femshep in Mass Effect. 99.9% of that group are probably guys though.
