Okay this is getting confusing

World of Tanks, World of Warplanes, World of Battleships = wargaming.net

World of Planes = gaijin

Having watched a young friend die of cancer, I wouldn't wish it on anyone. I hope he pulls through.

Not going to pay $250 for a Wii U. That could buy me a TrackIR or a number of games on Steam. My Wii is in a box, somewhere.

It's a shame that they are the publisher for Trackmania 2. I really love Trackmania and I'm looking forward to Trackmania 2, but I don't like supporting Ubisoft.

I'll pick it up, play it all the way through, enjoy it and then say "oh I wish it didn't have these problems". A year later mods will fix all the problems. I'll spend 5 hours downloading and installing cool mods and I'll try to play it again only to make it 1/16th of the way before moving on to something else.

I have 82 hours into Terraria. It's worth the $10. It's nice to play a game that focuses on gameplay and not eyecandy or pressing A for something awesome to happen.

Forza 4, head tracking is cool. Holding an invisible steering wheel? Not so cool. Logitech G27 support would be better.

I'm used to video game kill counts and the countless acts of debauchery, sex and incest simply don't break through my ennui.

You forgot rape and rape.

It's an alright game, but I'm not willing to fork over that much for it.

Wow.. that is messed up. I don't even think the comment warranted a ban.

How long till EA dumps the Bioware name?

You don't appeal to a wider audience by making things deeper and more complex...you do it by catering to the lowest common denominator.

Yup..
The Game industry is reaching the same point as the Movie industry. They won't stray from a formula of producing bland shallow games that are designed to appeal to wide range of people. There's too much risk involved. Innovation is out the door as they copy the known money makers God of War, CoD, Gears of War.. etc. Game play will take a back seat to explosions and eye candy.
We'll get a get a gem every once in a while from small developers, but we're going to be flooded with garbage from the big guys.

Everywhere I've working over the last three decades has had its share of tools, policies and practices that needed to be learned before you could start being productive.

That is definitely true. No one benefits from a new hire that starts screwing with things from day one, without taking the time to learn a new environment. It can cost a company thousands of dollars. I've seen this happen a few times with cocky "know it all"s.

All of you shut up! Just shut the hell up! Don't anyone dare jinx or naysay this

I think you've got it backwards. When everyone says "This is going to be the bestest game EVER!" the game ends up sucking. At least if you say "This game is going to suck!" you could always be pleasantly surprised.

I've been hearing more and more that this may be the game that stands against WoW

Not likely. I played to level 20 until I got bored. The soul system is very cool. Rifts are fun, but they get repetitive after a while. The quests are very basic kill, collect etc.

I am completely WoW'd out, but the quests in WoW are much more advanced, diverse and interesting in WoW. Rifts quests are more inline with where WoW was in 2004.
