Glad to hear she's apparently leaving of her own volition and not because of gamergate or harassment.

Haha. Yeah it's strange how when you actually make games and do your job instead of trolling and belittling people on Twitter, you get harassed less.

Are you saying that Professional Victim *isn't* a solid career choice?

I don't know, a lot of them seem to be doing quite well.

Aren't there hundreds of people switching jobs all the time? Why is she special?

Well obviously he doesn't link to every low level designer or artist that leaves a team. But Jade Raymond has been in several key high positions (executive producer on several AAA games and Manager of her own studio). She is on the level with Ken Levine, and his comings and goings are always posted.

Uh, I respectfully disagree. What has she done on the games she produced? Whereas Ken Levine was pivotal in System Shock 2, Thief, and Bioshock/Infinite, providing the stories as well as creative direction. It's news when someone who actually contributes heavily to the design of great games moves one. Not so much when someone who makes vague contributions does the same.

Annnnnnnd who cares.

I definitely would put this in the 'who cares' category. Must not be much news today.

Not to belittle her or her...you know, I'm not sure what she does. Producer is such a generic title that tells you nothing. Hence, I don't care. It's not like when Amy Henning left Naughty Dog and you bite your nails because she was the force behind their stories and you worry they may fuck it up without her.

Hey Blue, I bought a Thrustmaster T-Flight Hotas X Flight Stick from Amazon yesterday and would like to know if I did it properly to support the site. I have a few other purchases I need to make from Amazon as well and just want to make sure ya get the credit.

Thanks.

I bought $8 underwear the other day, Blue!

edit: Oh, and a card reader. And Snowpiercer, for next Tues.


RE: Snowpiercer. I thought the premise was ridiculous, but the movie totally worked for me. Unique and enjoyable.

Loved Snowpiercer. Made me want to get the comic.

I'm kind of over Half-Life 3 now. If Valve ever decides to make it and it is awesome I'll most definitely buy it, but I just don't see it happening, at least not in the way we all want it to. Valve may farm it out or find a way to make it another F2P hat simulator.

Yeah, I'm not holding my breath on it. It's been so long now, I don't care anymore.

I have a Fitbit somewhere in a closet that you're welcome to if you want it. I have no use for the thing anymore. They are kind of cool for awhile but you get bored of it eventually even with the badges and other silliness. My girlfriend bought it for me and I used it religiously for a year and then discovered it really made no difference to my cardio since its mostly hiking or climbing. The sleep analysis functionality in those things and phone apps really just use your movement in bed and its no substitute for an actual sleep study at a clinic so I wouldn't put any credence in it. Anyways send me a PM if interested, I can probably ship it to a PO box or whatever for $5, its pretty tiny. I don't have the original box anymore but I do have the USB charge thing and the belt clip.

You're probably just fine with a phone app for pedometer stuff though, it might not be as accurate but I'm sure its pretty close.

I had a Fitbit as well. IT didn't accurately count steps up like it was supposed to, and I lost it more than once as it popped off my clothes. I agree with Verno about the sleep thing; It sounds good, but it doesn't really work well.

I've been waiting for the Razer Nabu. I use my phone right now, but I leave it in the car sometimes or forget to put it in my pocket and never get an accurate reading.

Wanted to throw in that since I beat Shadow of Mordor I wanted to pick up another open world game to suck up my time. Went with Sleeping Dogs Definitive edition. I had tried the PS3 version last year, but honestly the barftastic PS3 graphics in that game turned me off. The PS4 version looks MUCH better, but unfortunately suffers from some weird freezing issues from time to time, and long load times occasionally. Other than that, the combat is quite similar to Batman/SoM, and I like the driving better than GTAV. (Blasphemy, I know.)

Yeah, seems like a lot of stupid decisions being made all around. I'll admit I have zero faith in our government. Haven't had much faith in them for several decades. Yet, this last couple months has been nothing short of mind boggling. Not that it wasn't crazy before. It's like amateur hour almost everyday. From the guy walking into the White House through a door left unlocked to people on national TV outright saying Hillary Clinton will be our next president. Just insane.

Seriously, I'd really like to know just how these nurses (in Spain and now the US) were fully decked out, suited up, yet still managed to contract it? The odds of them all being grossly negligent in their jobs to the point of risking their lives and the lives of their loved ones is something I just can't imagine.

Crazier yet portions of the population within numerous African countries believe the US is at fault and trying to depopulate and take control of Africa for their resources. Mainly diamonds and oil.

What really floored me? The second nurse supposedly called the CDC advising them she was feeling ill and had a fever yet was about to get on a plane... they did not advised her it was not ok to do so? She was running a fever after treating Thomas Duncan, after another co-work has tested positive for ebola, she is supposedly being monitored yet not under quarantine, and she gets on a plane to go plan a wedding in another part of the country? WTF?

Is this some bad movie writing or some stupid book's plot full of holes?

Yup, weeks of: "Don't worry, it's SOO hard to get, and we know what we're doing" lead to - Oops, two nurses who knew what they were doing still managed to get it.

And all the Keep Calm shit from the government? Yeah, when they're spreading the keep calm BS on this thick, you know you really shouldn't be listening to them. But, again, freaking out like half the media want you to is also not the answer. (Although if I lived in Dallas I'd be taking an extended holiday about now...)

Let me ask ya this...

Name one regular on this site that has ever gone shit craving mad over a game and pushed it like he did with Evil Within?
Creston and Ray have gotten close with X3, but never to that degree. And yeah he did talk briefly about other topics, but out of his 45 posts as a whole, doesn't something sorta stick out when you look at his Evil Within related posts to everything else he posted?

At least I'd like to see him post about how shit poor the game is

I seem to remember Tumbler going batshit years ago over Battlefield back in the day, but I'll admit I'm not wading through 300 pages of his comments to find the exact quote (something about lock and load, and he spammed it across multiple threads).

edit: And you KNOW how much I scream about GTA.

edit again: Also Creston is a bioware whore! A WHORE, I SAY!!!!!!!

I was pretty excited for Destiny. WAS. Hoping they add some plot in the DLC.

And..uh....no, pretty jaded otherwise. Can't even work up a smile for Dragon Age because of how bad II was and because BIOWARE YOU SUCK NOW!

Yeah, I'm pretty psyched about the Downey news. Pretty crazy they're already mapping out Avengers 4!

40 million PLUS backend is just nuts, though.


Well, he's probably getting pretty tired of playing the same character. I hear that Chris Evans is, and if you saw Snowpiercer, you can see that he's hankering for more things new.

He's actually saying he's retiring after his Captain America contract. We'll see if he sticks to it, but he says he doesn't enjoy the spotlight and wants to just direct.

I'd hate the spotlight too. It'd a shame if he stopped acting, he's such a talent.

Yeah. Puncture was phenomenal, I loved him in Push, and Snowpiercer was great too. Too bad he's so typecast as a superhero. (Johnny Blaze, Captain America, Nick from Push, hell he even voiced Casey on the CG TMNT movie...)

Was checking my Twitch account last night and happened to catch some live feed from some guy playing this game. Seemed pretty cool if you like old school survival horror. After Dead Space 3, however, I will probably wait until it is bargain bin priced.

Thanks guys. I only mentioned it since Ray Ban did. At the time, I didn't want to talk about it, and even now it's hard to describe. I wasn't particularly close to either of my parents, but with both of them gone, it's more of a feeling of "I guess I'm next."

Between all that and turning 39 this year and 40 next, this whole "age" thing is hard to grasp. It's like mentally still feeling 19, but your body is screaming otherwise.


Shhh. I turned 39 this year too, but I am making my body suck it up and run like a 24 year old.

Condolences for everyone's losses. My dad could drop dead and I wouldn't even care, (Or probably even here about it until years after the fact) but losing my mom would suck. We're pretty close.

Magrunner is on sale on Steam for $2.94 or something like that. Kind of a take on Portal...with Cthulhu! I've been waiting forever for it to hit rock bottom, and my patience has paid off, haha!

Also, the best mushy love line EVER!

"I love you!"
"I know."

Reviewers were also told that they must “not mention LOTR or Hobbit movies, characters or books”

What's up with that? Why is this game distancing itself from the source material?

As seen in these threads, people can't wrap their mind around Mordor being green, and other 'disconnection's from the movies. Shadow of Mordor takes place before the LOTR movies, but I couldn't say how much before. If you assume these people know more than the average fan, the average fan would get even more confused.

Mordor is a big place. We see northern Mordor in the movies, around the Black Gate and Barad-Dur. Nurn is Southern Mordor, and Tolkien described it as Mordor's bread basket, where the enslaved men worked to feed Sauron's armies. Jackson never showed it because it really had nothing to do with the story.

I'd also like to mention that AC bores the crap out me, and yet Mordor has me sucked in. GTAV wasn't my cup of tea, but Watchdogs was. It's all about context and personal taste.

Sucks about Drive Club, I was looking forward to it, but its not a big deal. Sony should have been more proactive in telling people what was going on instead offering only silence.

Yeah, I was rather disappointed in reviews. Was hoping it was going to be good.

Oh well. Ton of other shit out right now anyway.

Yeah, I don't think there's going to be a Driveclub II. I am waiting for a good racing game on the PS4. Maybe The Crew, but the way Ubi keeps delaying it? Probably not.

Oh well, like you said, plenty out now.
Still playing Destiny every couple of days. Mordor is sucking up time. Tried out Spelunky (Not my thing) and Dust (Meh). The Alien game looks really good, but not sure I want to dump $60 into it.
