Let's give kudos where kudos are due. The community complained about this, and Zenimax put the game back in like 10 days.

That deserves a "good job" Zenimax.
Bethesda pulled a dick move yet we should be happy that they caved to pressure from fans? It doesn't undo the fact that they tried to get away with this in the first place. Perhaps I'd have a little more confidence in the company if the RAGE mod tools had actually been released with the game as promised - it's been over a year now.

So fuck id Software and Mr "I Suck Dick" Carmack.

Bioware fucked up their name with Dragon Age II and it's been downhill ever since. EA has managed to screw up nearly every franchise they own.

3D printers are going to be crippled. They will end up in a similar way to scanners, where if you try to scan in a bank note it will block it. Copyright holders will pressure lawmakers into implementing draconian legislation that will do nothing to benefit consumers and everything to benefit large corporations. Politicians in the US will attack them on the basis that they're 'socialist', because Americans don't seem to have a clue what socialism or communism are all about - only that they're bad.

Continuum's "corporate congress" is actually pretty accurate.

While it would be nice to have it on PC - so that it can be played as it should be, on mouse and keyboard - this announcement is really no surprise. Microsoft has demonstrated nothing but contempt for PC gamers in recent years. Suggesting that any first person shooter is better on console than PC is laughable... unless the design criteria include bad graphics, bad controls and long load times.

I assume EA and Activision-Blizzard are the most likely publishers to buy them out, with Valve an outside possibility.

THQ is a disaster of a company and it would be nice to see their IP end up in the hands of a credible publisher.

You're just WRONG, overall the last 10 years have got to be the worst in gaming history. Nintendo's major franchises (starfox, Zelda, metroid) are all suffering in different ways. Other M was a disaster. Final fantasy series is on the ropes. Since FFX, FF has been going completely downhill and it's basically a movie with hardly any gameplay anymore. The combat system and loot has been totlly removed/dumbed down/gutted.
Who cares what Nintendo is doing? They may have been relevant about 15 years ago but PC gaming has long since offered better gaming. Starfox, Zelda and Metroid were always kiddie and Final Fantasy has been dead since FFVII. Consoles are for gaming on a budget - there are some decent exclusives but you have to suffer terrible graphical fidelity (720p @30fps is like watching movies in black and white), when they would have been much better on PC.

On PC ... I've played all those games you mentioned. Torchlight 2 is basically a worse version of diablo 2. The itemization is bad and the story/world is worse. Not to mention Diablo 3 and Starcraft 2 were huge disappointments especially with the 'always online' bullshit and the gimped mod tools. Starcraft 2 is basically another parallel universe in terms of story, the story in SC2 is totally not congruent with the firsts. We're seeing what World of warcraft did to blizzard (totally fucked them up). The people behind the original diablo 2 and starcraft were blown to the winds and after 12 years the new developers totally sucked at giving sequels to two of gamings most beloved franchises.
I haven't played Torchlight 2 yet but it looks better than the original, which was a game I loved. While Starcraft 2 wasn't really my cup of tea (I'm more a C&C 1, Warcraft I sort of guy) it was still a solid game and Diablo III was exceptional, though it was undermined by the auction house system.

Borderlands 2 isn't anything special, people who are over-wow'd by graphics and don't have good taste in gameplay find it 'amazing'. Older FPS's were more fun on release then the entire single player campaign of borderlands 1+2 and had more longevity (UT2004).
Borderlands 2 is a great game, especially when played co-op. The graphics are solid, though I wouldn't say they're the main appeal of the game. Very few games do I put anywhere near as much time into, so that's pretty high praise.

Suppa7 wrote on Nov 5, 2012, 03:20:
Metro is YET ANOTHER FPS (gtfo). Witcher is a mediocre RPG with a shitty combat system and Dishonored is a half baked version of thief combined with bioshock for the ADHD call of duty crowd.
Metro 2033 was excellent (though it could have done without the QT-events); The Witcher 2 was superb; and Dishonored had great atmosphere and great gameplay - it wasn't perfect but certainly it's an example of how the games industry is pushing things forward.

I think gaming is better than ever. XCOM: Enemy Unknown and Dishonored both grabbed me like few other games have, while you still have interesting and well made indie games like Legend of Grimrock, Black Mesa and Torchlight. Skyrim was in a league of its own and King's Bounty is great for those who like old-school RPGs. If you can find decent modern games then you're simply not trying.

Are you American? Okay, that's fine. If not, mind your own country's business.
Considering that the US is the first to criticise other countries for the way they conduct elections I think it's only fair that the US should itself be scrutinised. Voting by email is antithesis to an anonymous vote and any security breach risks the voting preferences of voters being exposed, where they could come under pressure from groups seeking to influence future elections.

It's bizarre that Americans accept electronic voting when they are so distrustful of the government. Voting by email is fundamentally insecure and lacks anonymity - it should have been discounted out-of-hand. And electronic voting machines are just as bad, especially when they have ties to political candidates.

The US seriously needs to reform its voting process. It also needs to do more to protect against vested interests abusing the system - the voter suppression tactics by the GOP are particularly concerning and undermine democracy at a fundamental level.

... retail games that ultimately failed and had to go F2P to survive. Different when a game is built from the ground up with microtransactions in mind.
This is the issue. When games are built from the ground up around F2P they tend to be very irritating, as they reward those who pay over those who don't. There are some exceptions to this, like Dota 2 and (from the looks of it) Planetside 2, so it's not an absolute rule but it holds true most of the time. And we're talking about EA here.

I'm not interested in F2P games. To enjoy them properly they end up costing a lot more than traditional games and the gameplay tends to revolve around grind rather than enjoyment. Age Of Empires Online was a classic example of that, with civilisations that amounted to hundreds of pounds if you bought them all. It's a disgusting business model but it's no surprise to see EA embrace it.

I noticed that during Hotseat games you're finally given an option to get back to the main menu after completing a turn, rather than relying on Alt-F4.

LucasArts has been a zombie-studio for a long time. It has only remained solvent by produced dumbed-down, casual nonsense like The Force Unleashed - even then it hasn't really been successful.

That said, Star Wars 1313 looked quite promising.

The blurb sounds decent. I'd be surprised if it's a decent film and even if it is it will have little to do with the game, considering that the game had no plot.

This is the first I've heard of this too. What was actually said about her?
Actually, I assume it was related to the comment made about her probably being paid for by Square Enix because she was promoting Tomb Raider. There was nothing wrong with the article though - it never accused her of anything.

And if she's connected to The Sun then she's not even trying to be a serious journalist. She's only in it for the money and the power.

This is the first I'd heard of this entire saga and it's incredibly depressing, though not at all surprising. This woman sounds like a truly repugnant individual and the gaming industry would be much better off without the likes of her.

On the plus side, I finally got to read the Eurogamer article and I have to say I found it a thoroughly good read. I just wish we was able to keep writing for them.

PS - That picture of Geoff Keighley is sickening. What a fucking sell out.

I can't even manage 60fps on my system, even with Ambient Occlusion turned off. That's mainly because I'm playing at 2560x1600 and it doesn't support SLI. It's certainly not a very well optimised game. Black Mesa looked and performed much better.
