They are going to end up being a mainly engine based company like Unreal, they aren't going anywhere.

The problem is that they have very little in the engine market to begin with. EA is on a Frostbite or die kick. id is purely idtech. Everyone else is on Unreal Tech.

Star Citizen, Evolve, and Archeage come to mind.

I understand that.
But stealing games from publishers / developers is just as wrong in the sight of the law as walking into K-Mart and stealing something off the shelf, or breaking into a home and robbing the owners.
It's basically the digital form of the same thing.

Except that Robbery and shoplifting are not the same thing.

Sigh, George RR Martin. He's going to pull a Robert Jordan on his readers, it's pretty much a given at this point.

So does that mean we get Brandon Sanderson to salvage this series too?

Sanderson did well with RJ because he was aping his style anyway. He would totally shit up Martin.

GRRM - says fuck you to fans, then realizes fans are probably right and he needs to buckle down maybe just a little.

so this is an open world middle earth game? iiiinteresting. i thought this was another one of those tired RTSs. and it delves deeper into the lore, something that i've always considered more interesting than LotR itself. screw shogo, if this does well i hope they roll the money into a First Age game =P

Yup, built on the AC engine. Looks cool, but I'm waiting for the reviews.

The combat and traversal in AC never required any skill. I've played all of them and it's always been "hold-two-buttons to automatically run, climb, jump, hop, swing, etc" and "hold block and press counter to automatically kill enemies." In terms of combat, the series has actually improved slightly with each iteration. In the first game, you could literally hold block and press counter to kill every single enemy in the game. In the sequels, they added enemy types that required a slightly different tactics.

Am I crazy, or do I remember being able to climb a little higher and faster in older games, which let you use a jump and grab technique that is no longer possible? Also seemed to be easier to grab ledges when you're falling in the past, which opened up more opportunities for quicker descent. It seems in their effort to make the motion more fluid and foolproof, they've removed player ability/ingenuity from the equation.

The jump and grab was something you unlocked in ACII. It's been in every game since as far as I am aware. It's still pretty easy to grab ledges when you're falling. I have trouble not grabbing ledges when I want to free fall.

Well, that doesn't happen often.

This looks interesting, but it seems like something that can easily sound great and turn out to be boring to play, so I'll wait for some people to play it and give some opinions on it.


Right there with ya. I love LOTR, and this looks interesting but it could easily be shit.

Hey, Steam has the Entire Dead Island franchise on sale for less than $8 right now. Or, if you already own the first one, Riptide is $4.99.

For $4.99, I figured WTF. Been trying to finish the first one this summer anyway.

Can you guys shut up about Destiny? I don't want to buy a console with only one worthwhile game on it, however crack cocaine-like its euphoric potential may be.

Destiny
The Last of Us
Uncharted 4
Infamous: Second Son

Also, I prefer to play stuff like Watchdogs on my PS4. (And Tomb Raider)

Second Son story DLC next month, too. Lookin forward to that!


Ya, used some of my PSN credit to get that. Forgot The Last of Us comes out next week on PS4. Sweet.

That has been my experience as well. Despite the PS4 being on a wireless connection I have had a really smooth gaming experience. Me and some randoms took on a walker today. My first time. We ran out of time....but damn it was close.

Did you go for the legs? You get more points there. And then crit on it's neck/core, when it sticks it out.


Ya. Sniper rifle + leg shots = mega damage.

I live in a crowded apartment/townhouse development, so wireless sucks for gaming. Way too much interference. I ran ethernet cable up a wall, across the ceiling, and down behind the TV and then covered it up with cable channels.

My favorite memory of Sims was when Sims 1 came out. I remember I woke up super early on a Saturday for some reason and eagerly bought it, installed it, and proceeded to play it nonstop for 14 hours. I recall I only ate breakfast that day, didn't take a shower, and my house was a mess.

But there I was - exercising, cleaning my house, reading books, and showing - my virtual self, while my real-life self needed to do all those things.

I exited the game and remember it was dark outside, I smelled, and was woozy from not eating all day. I uninstall and never played again thinking, "well that was dumb."

Good times.

My roommates girlfriend used to play it on their PC while I played CS in my room. She named all the people after out little "family." I was in between maps when I heard them gibbering wildly, so I came out to see what was going on. Apparently one of us knocked something out of the fireplace and set the couch on fire. 2 sims ran circles around the couch waving their arms in the air and gibbering, and one sim was trying to get to the bathroom. She was panicking as much as the sims and couldn't manage to click on any of them, and eventually the whole house burned. I laughed and went back to shooting people. Good times.

Great movie, anything Star Trek pales in comparison.

Your enthusiasm is noted, but you understand that Galaxy Quest could not have succeeded as written if Star Trek wasn't a enduring, well loved franchise.

Not written in the article was that they initially wanted the actual cast of the original Star Trek in Galaxy Quest.

Yeah, I've never read that anywhere.

Jumped n the Destiny beta for the first time last night. Really enjoying myself. Might just be the first shooter I buy on console.....

Yeah, the month of August is going seem like forever...

Came across three different Walker events last night and helped take them down. That was awesome...


Yeah, and my mom decides that the week she wants to come visit her granddaughter is the same week Destiny releases. Thanks mom, perfect timing as always. FYI, you will be taking her all day on the 9th, since I will be sleeping after playing all night.

Holy shit, finally. Guess it wasn't a priority since so few movies seem to be released in BD 3D, but I have a 3D TV and some 3D movies and I've been waiting for them to add support.

It's too bad so many companies went with active shutter glasses, I think that really killed the appetite for home 3D. I have an LG with passive, so I get to use the same glasses they use in the theaters. They're lighter on your face, and you don't have to worry about charging them. Now if they would just put the extended version of Avatar out in 3D...

Oh yeah, I guess it doesn't help that some movies are shit in 3D. Resident Evil, looking at you with your crap 3D and cheesy, coming at the screen 3D effects like you were still in the 70s.

If you click on Polygon articles I would like you to post your name and address so I can come slap some sense into you.

I'll come along and we can make it like this video.

"Do you post on Blue's News under the user name Cutter?"

"Did you comment on some shitty Polygon Tumblr SJW style article?"

Then proceed with the ass whipping.

Haha, yup. That was the scene I was envisioning when I typed that.
