Just saw the new Riddick movie yesterday and was commenting that I wished they'd do another game as well.

So, they recommend an AMD six-core CPU. AFAIK only the highest end intel CPUs have six cores

No, AMD procs have 6 cores as well, hell they even have 8 core ones now. They are nowhere near as good as the newest i7 6 cores, but they are around.

$200 for an 8 core AMD on Newegg.

You don't know that, once games start being ported from PS3/XB1 with higher detailed textures it's very well possible that 2+ gigabytes of vram will start becoming the norm for high end performance.

Err exactly, no one knows that, that's the whole point of "foreseeable future" portion of my comment. Right now and well into 2014 at least it's not going to make a discernible difference. Hopefully in late 2014 or early 2015 we'll start seeing true next gen titles land. I'm not sure texture detail is where things are lacking anyways though. It's not a question of if, it's a question of when. People are fine with a 2GB video card for awhile yet.

Depends on what you play. A lot of choppy fps on MMOs is because every single character has a different texture set. GW2 WvW will lag all to hell during a zerg unless you have a ton of VRAM or turn the settings down. That's why the implemented the lower settings that make most people look like the guy from Assassin's Creed during moments when there are a ton of people on screen.

Blue, a site (guessing it's for your ads) called c.berstad.com keeps hanging and not letting me view the actual website. I get the ads and a blank, blue page. I have to refresh a bunch of times for it to let me see the actual page.

I was playing it when it came out. It's pretty amazing for a hand held game. I thought it was better than Brotherhood, which I couldn't get into after finishing 2. Of course, I never played 3 or Revelations because, frankly, the whole series bores me to tears now.

I guess I am alone in not minding these embedded tweets. 1920 x1200 27" screen with the browser on half the screen and they don't bother me nor do they seem overly large.

I don't see any reason to buy the digital deluxe version. Already pre-ordered both the game and the premium membership. Hell, I bought a new PC just so that BF4 would play well on the highest settings. And I'm renting a server. Clearly I like these games, lol. But, yeah, digital deluxe tags on another 10 bucks for what? 3 gold battlepacks, whatever they are.

I think they are removing the OLED screen to make it cheaper. Sony is really into getting people to adopt the Vita for use with the PS4, and one way they are doing it is by offering cheaper and cheaper Vitas.

I won't get rid of my AC special edition white Vita now because I too love the OLED screen.

Also been playing Dragon's Crown. It's something to do between customers, but it's not fantastic or anything. My biggest bitch about the Vita is still the lack of quality titles. Uncharted was awesome, Sly Cooper was really good, but I haven't really seen anything since that made me really want it. I've been playing th ebeta of Killzone Mercs and it's really "meh."

The only thing I don't like is that they still seem to be limiting you unrealistically. My real PS90 has a light on the right, a laser on the left, and the USG dot sight on the top. Why can't my in-game P90 have the same? Why do I have to choose between light and laser?

I know it's a game design choice, but I dislike it.

HAHAHAHAHA, acting like adults, hahahahahaha. Good one. Have you met many adults lately? I own a retail store. My 3 year old acts more civilized than 75% of my customers. I'm sure Batman can tell you just how adults act as well. I know a few LEOs, and they love humanity in all of it's colorful "adulthood."

As a matter of fact, I met at least two on Tuesday: the CEO and COO of my employer, the former of whom wanted to meet and check in with me after I had a major anxiety attack at work and had gone on leave of absence. Prior to that meeting I was not sure I wanted to return to my job, but they were both so kind, conscientious, appreciative of my contributions to the agency and my work with our clients, genuinely concerned for my well being, and sincere in their desire that I come back, preferably in a management capacity, that I walked out of our administrative office feeling validated, appreciated, and intent on returning. These two adults have their head on their shoulders, their priorities straight, and want nothing more than to serve the vulnerable population are agency works with and to look out for the employees of the agency. So yes, I've met some adults recently, and while an experience that positive is rare, basic adult civility is not.

And even if a lot of people are classless shitbags, that hardly gives public figures permission to be even bigger classless shitbags, which seems to be the jist of your argument.

As for Krahulik's charitable donations, that's great and all but I've always felt uneasy with PA's motivations for such things. Back when Child's Play started a decade ago, they made it pretty damn clear that they were doing it just to show the world that gamers aren't a bunch of murdering psychopaths, i.e. it wasn't for the kids, it was to improve the public image of the "culture" of which they were a part: any kindness was purely incidental.

Oh brother, here we go. Have you ever seen the episode of Friends where Joey tells Pheobe that nobody ever does anything that is not selfish? That's your argument. If you've ever donated to charity, it was for selfish reasons. Because it made you feel good to help someone out, or it made you look good, or whatever. I could give two flying fucks WHY they started Child's Play. What I do care about is that it helps kids in fucked up situations.

Especially on a news site about games... Penny Arcade are as much Gamers as I am the King of Odyssia. Stop Mentioning Penny Arcade ^^

Oh, you get to decide that for everyone, do you? I've had people tell me I'm not a gamer because I haven't played any Madden games. Or because until recently I hadn't tried Minecraft. Or because whatever dufus reasoning they come up with.

There was nothing sincere or apologetic about the second comic.

You think so. I think differently. To me the second comic is their way of apologizing for controversy when it hits their site. They've done it before in the past. But it's a boring topic, and I'll never convince you and you'll never convince me, so :-shrug-:

Perhaps they need to be less ambiguous in the sincerity of their apologies then, because it seems like every 12-18 months, they say something dickish, then double down, reject all criticism, act all victimized, and then finally issue an apology that strikes a lot of people as sarcastic. Look I get that they have a "style", namely of fulfilling all the worst stereotypes about gamers, but unless they find that this shit actually GAINS them fans, then they should probably get some better PR people, or at the very least start behaving like adults.

HAHAHAHAHA, acting like adults, hahahahahaha. Good one. Have you met many adults lately? I own a retail store. My 3 year old acts more civilized than 75% of my customers.

Krahulik has admitted he has an issue with being defensive. His first, knee-jerk reaction is always to be a giant asshole. Then he ends up apologizing and usually winds up giving a ton of money to charity. Then you have the other side of the coin, where I doubt most of the detractors have done much about anything except bitch on the internet. I'm not defending him because I don't really know him, and because he doesn't really seem like he needs it. It just irritates me how many people read the headline and stop, then come out bitching.

Yeah, it's the theme of the site, and it's what people are objecting to - how over the top it is.

It's funny how those people never complain when Gabe murders Tycho in a brutal fashion, or someone is fed into a wood chipper, or radioactive scorpions bite one of them in the dick, or dogs tear them to pieces or... etc

But a fictional character mentions fictional rape by a fictional dickwolf and "OMG YOU GUYS CONDONE RAPE."

/sigh.

Caveat: As I said before, I don't think this comic was offensive, I did not see a problem with it, etc. etc. I am not in favor of censoring tasteless humor, and I think there are some good arguments that can be made in this vein.

But. I think the rape/murder argument is weak. The main problem with the analogy is that rape happens way more often than murder, disproportionately affects a marginalized group, is frequently not punished, and involves a lot of victim-blaming. If 1 in 5 men were murdered by their best bros who then got away with it (and with large numbers of people defending the bro-murders), then the non-fuss over Gabe/Tycho murders might make more sense.

Who defends rapists? I mean, who actually thinks out right rape is OK other than frat-boys with expensive lawyers?

There is no such thing as free speech. There is protected speech. Big difference. I'll never understand the mentality of these self-entitled 'It's America so I can do whatever the fuck I want and fuck personal responsibility!' attitude. Krahulik needs a severe beating. Like a year in a hospital, major surgeries, crippled for life kind of beating. Then he might just realize there are consequences to actions.



I've got to be honest, when I see a post like that it makes me wonder why I'd ever want to be part of the same community it comes out of.

Well, thanks for letting us know you're pro-rape and pro-asshole. On ignore you go.


Forgot your meds again today, I see.

Because someone is against someone else being beaten to the point of crippling him for life just for voicing an opinion makes them pro-rape? And you think other people don't understand consequences, Jesus.

I only watched Strip Search because A) The name is hilariously misleading and B) I knew it wouldn't be a PG rated bullshit reality toilet bowl. I despise reality shows, but this was pretty funny. Mike and Jerry were hilarious overactors, and some of the stuff they made the artists do was funny. Not sure if I would invest time in a second season, however. I mean, even The Real World was interesting in the first season, and then it was all downhill from there, until we reached Dancing with the Stars and Honey BooBoo level of drooling idiocy.

They got beat on the release date too, ouch. Microsoft has a lot of making up to do this gen, time to get started.

Dude, MS supports 8 controllers. EIGHT. Sony only supports four. I'd say the XB1 is well on its way to TOTAL DOMINATION.


And don't forget, each Xbone comes with CLOUD MAJICS that gives you teh power of FOUR MORE XBONES!1!!1!
That, and EIGHT CONTROLLERS, means that teh XBONE is THIRTY-TWO times more AWESOME than anything else in TEH UNIVERSE!

/shitty haircut man.

LOL. I still cannot imagine a game needing 8 controllers. I think that's why Sony cut back. The trend has been for multiplayer to be online, so there are very few games that support same room multiplayer anyway. Maybe it's so you can have 2 guitars, bass, drums, a singer AND keyboards in the all new ROCK BAND! Too bad that trend has died and now you don't need all those inputs.

Krahulik pointlessly reopened the issue, showing all of the maturity of a 13 year old so it's hard to get mad at people for reacting appropriately.

I don't know, the argument is with someone who thinks that the only thing the creators of Child's Play have done right was to pull merchandise related to a comic they made that didn't really say what she made it out to say.

All he did was to essentially say that it was a mistake to try and talk with people who weren't actually attempting to discuss anything.

ARMAGARD! DICKWOLVES! RAGE!!

Seriously, it takes no effort at all to ignore something you don't like, but it takes a real effort to get all worked up over nothing. The comic was FUNNY. It was meant to illustrate how ridiculous these theme park quests are in MMOs. Instead a very loud vocal minority latched on to the word rape in the comic and ARMAGARD! DICKWOLVES! RAGE!!
