Pretty much what I expected - Shogun II in togas. I'd hate to see the phalanx combat...

Good god, CA, what are doing with the bigger budget Sega gave you?

It's some Japanese zombie game. Nothing to see here.

Why did they even bother making separate pages for the Jedi and Sith?

Clicking on the comments I knew, absolutely knew, that some genius would say something along the lines of "X AMOUNT OF PPL DIE OF Y CAUSE EVERYDAY!". Thanks for the simplistic morality/math/whatever lesson you robot.

Can't you consider this from a thinking, feeling human perspective and not on a numbers/statistical level - please?

Because perspective is a good thing. Yes, what happened in Boston was tragic. However, there were plenty worse tragedies all over the world yesterday and almost every other day, there's no shortage of them. So yeah, perspective helps.

Pretty much. I know people don't like to hear it, but there are worse things that happen to innocent people on a regular basis. You got kids getting blown up, freezing to death, dying of malaria, starving, etc. all over the rest of the world and they don't even get mentioned in a tiny newsblurb. Billions live short, brutal lives and they die mostly due to apathy and neglect rather than through any kind of malice.

That's probably why my outrage over the bombing has been pretty tempered even though I live in the Greater Boston area. Reading stories about infants dying still hit me pretty hard though...

They can improve co-op by making the game, you know, not suck.

If I still played Magic, I'd probably stick to Magic. Then again, I'm pretty sure Blizz is targeting younger gamers. Hell, I remember when Pokemon overtook Magic at tournaments in the local comic book store. Dark times.

Also, the name Hearthstone sucks.

Eurogamer UK and Gamespot (yeah, yeah) are the only major pubs I trust. Their SimCity reviews have further validated that trust.

It's a site run by WoW fanboys. They give every big budget high profile game a 90.

SimCity is "hideously broken" by design? Ask any Sims player and they'll tell you that Maxis, at its current state, is really, really, REALLY bad at developing games. All they do is release broken shit. A game that's overpriced, disappointing, resource hungry, and which crashes all the time is pretty much the norm.

Yeah, seriously, what's wrong with just making a game like Homeworld? Plus an iOS remake? GTFOOMHB.

How are the server populations? I loved the first NS, just couldn't get around to getting this one yet (got Chivalry instead).

Wasn't that the Takedown KS? They found a publisher recently...


Holy carp - really? I could have sworn that it failed its kickstarter. Well, there's one game to keep a watch on... still, maybe I'm being greedy, but I also want one to be based on Rainbow Six...

All I want is to play a game like Rogue Spear. Why can't I have that? Why would I play more fake and overproduced shiat like CoD? Just another genre the console playing gammas killed.

I pray we get another videogame crash. The only way to restore gaming to its former glory is kill it with fire and rebuild from the ashes.

What happened to you Bungie? You used to be cool. Now you just fart out a new Halo game every couple of years.

Pretty sure Microsoft will get scared and force to change this Destiny game to Halo (how many has it been so far I lost track?)... 6.

Corporations are supposed to pay an alternative minimum tax of 20% if their deductions take them lower than that. Not sure why this didn't apply here, but Facebook should have paid $200m. It's shit like this (and offshoring profits to places like Ireland) that's a big contributor to the debt.

First year corps are exempt from AMT and NOLs can bring AMT taxes down to zero.

Dunno what the big deal is. ESOP deduction has been in the IRC for years (yes, before Emperor Obama and his jackbooted thugs took over). Besides, there is no corporate equivalent of EIC - the refund is probably all from estimated tax payments.

I was referring to Kaptain Krunch the rageaholic, no clue what you're talking about.

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

Quoting might help avoid confusion.

Anyway, just came in here to say that the new replay system proves Blizzard is out of touch. What kind of nerd is going to do this? Fix the User Map Settings and custom match system before moving onto gimmicky bullcrap. This is why your game is DYING, you retards.

I think Diablo 3 hits all the right notes on presentation but that's where it stops for me. Skills are very visceral and have impact, there is great feedback on taking and receiving damage, stuff like that. They have the benefit of an army of animators, modelers and programmers just to baby sit the visual experience and honestly it is really well done for the most part.

That's one of things Blizzard gets right in all their games. The games just feel and sound "right" even going back to Orcs and Humans. It's a really underrated aspect of quality games IMO. Floatiness is a huge turnoff.
