Totally happy with 2560x1440 on a 27" for my desktop. Seems the perfect marriage of FPS and screen size.

There's a marked difference here between FTP and PTP. SWTOR is supposedly FTP but they're trying to wring the free players for ever cent. ESO is going the guild wars Purchase to Play system which rightly should include no more monetization than something like WoW.

For me they REALLY need a demo - I played the beta, all it did was inspire me to reinstall Skyrim again. As for SWTOR in launch month I got to max level cap and had raided all the content in the game - yeah I had fun but would I pay for a MMO I basically clocked by my goals in the first month?

Film was so bad even WB don't think they can cash in on it.

Maybe they couldn't make gravity defying elves and magically appearing battles goats realistic in the Lego world.

Really? It's 25 years since my big sister came home tripping her nut off finding Loom the most funny/surreal thing she'd ever seen?

I feel old.

Love this - they're attacking the gold farmers by giving noobs cheap gold whilst rewarding veterans with free game time.

You're probably right on the Monkeys - I've only really heard "Do I wanna know?" and comparing it lyrically to "Fake Tales of San Fransisco" or "When the sun goes down" maybe not fair.

That said watching their old live performances Turner has been changed a LOT. Aside from the huge image change he has learnt to play guitar standing up and no longer plays it like George Formby.

That kinda molding doesn't come without a price.

Hmm don't like the new inflection on "Follow Me". Aside from that the trailer was so jump cut it was hard to see what was happening.

Just realized something btw - oddworld are like linkin park or arctic monkeys. Their first release was a edgy representation of how their life sucked (oddworld had their mouths stitched shut, linkin park raged at parents, monkeys slagged the record industry etc etc etc).

Trouble is - then they got money. The problems which made them relate-able weren't really problems any more and they lost the edge which made them popular.

10/15 years later and these guys are desperately clinging to the past, reissuing stuff which might as well have a sticker saying "Remember me? I was cool when you were younger. LOOOOOVVVVEEE MEEEE AGAIN"

You remember John Romero? Imagine Daikatana had somehow been a hit. John Romero would now be the same as Molyneux.

This ego-maniacal attention whore can't even let his slide into obscurity go without a press junkette.

Molyneux is going to make you his bitch. But then make excuses why he failed to deliver, then promise to disappear from the gamers eye.

This is movie villain 101 - he is going to come back with one last big play which won't work.

(just for reference I really loved some of his games when they came out - I'm sorry it's ending so ignominiously for him)

I really wanted to love Wildstar - it had a LOT of improvements over the basic WoW model. That said it was just too cartoony. I accept WoWs graphically style because it does present a world with real presence and lore.

Wildstar is full on Saturday morning cartoon time. If it ever had a niche it would be set somewhere between Toontown and WoW. Such a shame they aimed at pre-teens rather than adults.

Yes, but would they have larger sales if it was every two years? Absence makes the heart grow fonder. After two plus years without a game property you like you definitely have more of an itch for it. Look at GTA5 45 million sales and it hasn't even launched on PC yet. I dunno about you but I'm itchy as hell for some new Fallout and TES.

Not that I have any interest in CoD/BF anyway, but it's like with annual Ass Creed games, I'm burnt out on them now. No thanks, time for something exciting and new, much like The Love Boat.

As an adult your point is more than valid - we'd rather have an exceptionally crafted game every few years than a yearly update of the same shit.

CoD/BF/Ass Creed are not games aimed at adults though - these are aimed at the pewdiepie generation of gamers. 12-16 year olds eat this rubbish up thinking they are in gaming Mecca. The constant rehashing of the same game means nothing because PIRATES, POWER ARMOUR, MECHS etc etc etc.

Happily there are a lot of companies who do eschew this practise of shovelware but Blizision is one who succeeds at doing both.

Can I just go out on a limb here and say female comedians aren't funny?

Just to qualify that statement I should probably point out that my wife of 16 years agrees with me even though she has a masters degree in Feminist Literature from Cambridge.

News Comments > Roberts: Star Citizen Will "Probably" Pass $100M; Release Schedule Expanded

I have played X wing with 2 people manning it. Me on the keyboard and my rather young friend learning joystick (2 buttons). We did clock it and it honestly was fun but is it an experience I want to repeat with a stranger online?

No not really - I don't have a two button joystick now. I have a metric butt load of buttons under my fingertips and voice control if I run out of buttons.

Multi crew ships are a nice idea but realistically the lag Picard had on TNG rather than doing it himself was awful (seriously I only use voice control for non-essential functions like "Landing Gear" rather anything urgent like "Fire" or "Raise Shields").

Quintessential example of this. In Elite Dangerous Supercruise you will hit your target (not overshoot) every time if you reduce power to 75% when you are 7 seconds from your destination. I have an analogue throttle so use a button (surprisingly 7) mapped to override the throttle to 75%. That button is also mapped on my joystick. I also have it set up in Voice Attack for the command "Seven" as well as my ED:VA packs default commands of "three quarters impulse" "set main drive seventy fire percent" etc etc. Point is every single time I use the joystick button.

So for you to try it for yourself see which you can do faster say "three quarters impulse" or press the number 7 on your keyboard. Now imagine when you say "three quarters impulse" you're actually saying it online to somebody in a different house who has to hear it, understand and then press the 7 button.

Multicrew ships will lose every time against solo pilots unless they make solo playing impossible.

Only way I can see this being fun for the non-captain is if they're the engineer solving a cross between pipemania and tetris to reroute power as needed.

Wow... the phone home crap is just getting ridiculous. I don't want One Drive storing / synching my shit, nor "Bing search" on everything embedded in Windows, nor Cortana telling MS everything I'm doing.

One Drive is a complete POS. So is Bing search. Hopefully they get hit by antitrust for bundling crapware.

I used bing once - didn't have a choice was a fresh install and was searching for chrome. Not realising the Ads took up half the Bing search page and being tired I promptly installed malware on my daughters PC <5 mins after it booted to windows the first time.

I'm 40. Why in gods name would I want to talk to anybody on Xbox Live. Surely the upper age limit on that is 19 before people realise they're in the online equivalent of a kindergarten playground?

I love SR 2-4 (except the purple - hate that colour, don't want my gang in it). I burnt through SR4 again on the free weekend before buying it (kid distracted me with wow for 4 hours which meant I din't finish it in time).

That said I'm reading elsewhere this is a 3 hour game/expansion so not paying that much for it (I have general rule of thumb is games should cost less per hour than the average cinema price).

As for they have no ideas where to take this franchise - are you kidding me???? This is Violition they made freespace, they left the saint's in space, the space sim is making a big time comeback.

True spaceships with dildos aren't really a thing but the Saint's humour and characters crossed with an semi-open (forget galaxies focus on fun) space sim could be awesome. I want to replace the laser on my starter ship with Britney Spears guns which play "Toxic" so loudly into my targets ship the occupants commit suicide.
