Only 'Martial Arts' FPS worth a shit in the history of PC gaming was Oni --nothing else came close.

Which leads me to my next question. Who owns the rights and wants to partner up with me to kickstart an Oni Redux?

You'd think that Bungie would have done made more of such a cool game and IP. Stupid Halo....

The Walking Dead what? Season what?

Ugh, too complicated. Pass.


Yeah, I didn't buy this either because numbers are hard. The only ones that matter are 1, 2, and 3 - anything higher is overthinking it, and after 3 you should just make a new franchise. Adding qualifiers like "season" and "episode" just confuses things. WTB Black Ops 3.

I'm excited to watch someone else play though this - probably Tornis. I'll probably pick it up too.

I always wonder if stuff like this is an insurance scam. The cameras at the hotel must have caught this, right? And why are they making a game about Luftbalons?

Cameras or not, the hotel is not responsible for lost or stolen items - they're the responsibility of the owner. Chances are he signed something stating such when he checked into the hotel, if he was staying in the hotel. Either way, state law protect innkeepers from paying more than $100-200 in compensation for lost or stolen items.

Yeah, seriously. WHY THE FUCK is your bag with everything in it at a fucking POOL BAR, as opposed to in the safe in your room???

If you act like a moron, odds are the world's going to treat you like one.

Creston, you're the first person to ever use the "s" word that I have seen in one of these cases. And I have seen A LOT of these cases.

So many delicious tears on Twitter overnight, here's an account retweeting them all.

It actually wasn't nearly so bad as I had imagined, but that's probably partially due to me already having gotten over that trauma a couple years ago when I read it. It's just amazing to see how many people who are such big fans had NO IDEA it was coming.

Oh god, such a good read. Wow. Love it.

As someone that has read all of the books, all I have to say is this: it doesn't stop.

This isn't the first time Blizzard has axed a game before release. Usually they do it a lot later when it's a lot more clear that the game will only be mediocre. Anyone remember Starcraft: Ghost? Or Warcraft Adventures? At least they dropped the axe before anyone could be truly disappointed.

Damn, snoozed and lost. Tomb Raider is sold out on GMG.

Keep checking back:

Green Man Gaming &#8207;@GreenManGaming 26 Apr

We will have the Tomb Raider 50% deal back as soon as possible Thanks for your patience folks. -James

GMG frequently runs out of keys and has to get more (publishers don't anticipate the number of sales they can generate, and gives them what they consider an adequate block, and generally its not). Since the sales are often near the weekend, sometimes it takes a bit to track down people and get another block of keys.

I don't know for sure that's what happened here, but that would be my guess.

Sounds like it - they had more today so I picked one up. Unfortunately it was 1 hour after the Dealzon deal ended. Oh well - still 50% off a $50 game!

I like WoT too, but I haven't touched it since Planetside 2 came out. I may pick it up again soon though - maybe after I finish my $10 Mass Effect 3.

$9 for Mass Effect 3 - I think that's the right price to take the plunge. Any DLC I shouldn't miss?

So many of you claim to know so much about a game you all claim to not even or hardly play. It's hilarious.

The game has been improving with every update and the next one will return the game to a more Planetside 1 state with a funneling/lattice system and actual base capture timers.

They make you redownload 5 gigs every time there is a HUGE map update, i.e. the next update coming up with reworked bases and territory. This is because you have to download the entire map files for the giant maps with all the changes.

This cert thing is indeed a pretty serious fuck up. But it's not as bad as everyone makes it out to be. They can give people all the free certs in the world it won't make them a better player or able to take on organized outfits.

Quit fucking crying about a good F2P battlefield style game on a massive scale. Just like any other F2P game if you don't want to put a little cash into it to unlock a few weapons, or you don't want to put a few days of time in to unlock a weapon (Seriously, those of you crying that 1000 certs is a lot for a weapon, don't play the fucking game, you can easily make 300+ Certs in a few hours, I made 700 certs in 3 hours the other night) then you need to go play another fucking game anyway. You're what I refer to as a freeloader, a Free player who thinks they deserve the world. Get lost.

I agree to an extent - but keep in mind that free players and the lack of barrier to entry is what helps keep the game's population up. Truthfully, I think they need to increase the cert earning rate for all free/non-100% boosted players (the ideal solution) or decrease overall cert costs (not the ideal solution) to try to keep them playing. As it is right now, the "time" barrier is too high to retain a free community that has to put up with more bullcrap than paying players.

That said, I received a significant amount of certs from the payout - 60,800. To put things in perspective, I have 25 of my 28 days (672 hours) on this character, and before the payout I had earned around 43,200.

It is crazy that not only were my total certs doubled, but I received the 60,800 certs on every character on my account - all six.

However, I have spent a SIGNIFICANT amount of money on Planetside 2:

$40 for Alpha Squad
$20 for Triple Station Cash back in July
$30 for SOE Station Cash cards from 7-11 (double SC promo)
$30 for two Station Cash cards from Gamestop (only one had the NS-11 promo, my mistake)
$100 for Triple Station Cash back in December
$70 for two 3 month memberships (I bought 3 months initially and decided to purchase 3 more once I decided to commit to the game fully)

Also:

$30 for two Station Cash cards from Gamestop that my brother got for me for Christmas
$60 for 4 Walmart Station Cash cards purchased with gift cards I received from work

So, around $380. That's a pretty crazy amount of money to spend on a game, but keep in mind I have gotten over 672 hours of enjoyment out of it, so that's around .57 per hour. I'm pretty happy with that.

Second, I can now play the game where I want, and how I want.

My main is on a server with a somewhat low TR population most hours. I can mostly play at night, so I play on an alternate west coast server - Connery. I play VS there because of the lower pop. Now, I don't have to grind a bunch of crap to be effective - I have almost everything I need!

This is probably a sign of what SOE should do to help balance out population issues - certification cloning to servers with underpopulated empires.

Anyway, these are just some thoughts from the game - I'm hoping to turn them into a more coherent post on the official forums. Thanks for reading.

With publishers losing so much money so often, I think it's a sign that the entire system is broken, except for the "sure things" like the obligatory Madden or COD sequel. Maybe someone will figure out soon how video games need to be made today rather than follow the formula of how video games were made 5 years ago when the economy was better.
