Has someone played the FFXIII port on the PC? Is it worth playing the port over the PS3 version? (all details about the story being naf or great etc notwithstanding. I'm purely talking port.)
Never played the PS3 version, but the PC port is pretty good. If you owned an original PC-CD FFVII or VIII copy, everything is pretty much like that. Graphic options, non-rebinding of keys at first, all that jazz. Think it was the 1.02 patch for VII that added in rebinding.

I don't think losing the ability to hire prostitutes would actually hurt the game in any way. Especially since you get nothing out of it nowadays anyway.
Facts of life and reality hurt. Quick, remove it from the game!

Sorry, too busy dealing with jackasses that want to inject their authoritarian political agenda into gaming while lecturing me that I have "internalized muhsoggyknees."

I just don't get this argument, though.
One guy wrote the review, an entirely different guy wrote the Op/Ed.
A year passed between them, which is a considerable amount of time for opinions to be re-evaluated, anyway.
And it's possible for a game to be incredibly fun to play yet also have some absolutely terrible plot points that make people cringe.

Does everyone writing for a site have to share the same opinion?
Can opinions not change over time?
And can something bad in an otherwise great game not necessarily make the game not worth playing?

According to SJW's yes. An entire group is guilty of the actions of a few individuals no matter what, even if there is no direct evidence--and if they work for them, the entire business/organization/etc is guilty of it. Notable examples from the last year: Mozilla, Gamergate.

So yep, Polygon has a serious misandry problem. I believe they need to take serious corrective steps to fix it.

Oh...OH...OOOOOOH.

Where was polygon last year? That's right, giving it a 9.5/10. Fucking clickbait. Apparently Polygon has a serious misandry problem, what can Polygon do to correct this?

Sure, but do you HAVE to hand them the password? If there's no pw on the phone, like in this case (MORON ALERT), then yeah, why shouldn't they search the phone. They search your wallet when they arrest you, I don't see why an unprotected phone would be different.

SCOTUS ruled that you do not have to hand over the password to your phone. (but in Fourt/Fifth Amendment related funsies, if your phone is locked with Biometric data, you CAN be forced to unlock it, because it becomes part of who you are versus what you know. )

It doesn't look like the Canadian SC made a ruling on the password part?


Also... "We did it were the jewelry at nigga burrrrrrrrrrr,"

Do you speak a different form of English in Canada? I can't for the life of me understand what the fuck this is supposed to mean.
Passwords have already been covered previously by the SCC here, warrant required. For a period no warrant required, but really this is an extension of what's already case law here anyway.

But as for different form of english in Canada? Yes, note that centre is the correct spelling. But Toronto being the shithole that it is, has started becoming heavily ghettoized in parts much like Detroit, 15 years ago even the bad areas of Toronto you could walk through without a problem, or only a small problem. These days you're likely to be shot, stabbed, or have the shit kicked out of you.

My concern with AMD has always been their drivers. It just seems they really don't spend much time testing them. Their hardware is always top notch, but I have always had more success with the Nvidia drivers, they test them more than AMD does.
I jumped from nvidia to ati before the last generation was over because I got tired of the shitty nvidia drivers. The TDR problem that existed for 6+ months, and was so bad they were paying to have rigs shipped to them. Not even counting the fan/overheat problem and so on. So far with my 7950 I'm happier then I was with my nvidia card.

I haven't read into this one too much, nor watched that many videos to prevent spoiling it. Can anyone confirm that it plays similar to the original Dragon Age Origins?

More like DA:O, less like DA2. I can't remember exactly how someone put it, but it plays more like the first--but has some of the flashy stuff from DA2--without it seeming stupid. Tactics help, but controls really feel "off" compared to DA:O. Also, the tactical camera sucks ass.

It's sad news, obviously, but I want them to take their time. I want Witcher 3 to be awesome, and if that takes twelve more weeks, it takes twelve more weeks. I'd have more time to play it in May/June anyway.

(Of course, it's also possible they saw DA:I and looked at their own graphics, and realized their claim that it'd be the best looking RPG ever was under fire. )
Really man? DA:I's graphics are in some cases worse then the alpha release graphics that were showcased over a year and a half ago. Don't even get me started on the plastic models that are used for the medium settings on the graphics option. Ugh.

That doesn't seem likely, the CDPR guys always do their own thing. They are well past the adding new features stage anyway, it would have to be really minor at best.
That's a good point, one thing that did strike me is it could be a optimization problem with the next-gen consoles. I have a very strong feeling that they've already hit the limit of what the consoles could do and are either running into a memory issue or something else.

Taking a guess at this, but I get the feeling they are delaying because they saw DAI and saw some things that peeked their interest and feel that now they need to make some changes to make their game better.
Not sure what it could be outside of crafting.

Damn though if I wasn't waiting for this in a little bit. On the upside, it'll give me time to do 3 playthroughs of the first two games and make my neutral, elf saves.

Not seeing a lot of mind blowing sales, so far...

Yeah me either. I have seen SSD's here in Canada going for dirt cheap, but I've already got the ones I need. But for anyone interested I have seen: 240GB drives for $69, 120GB $20 after rebate, 500GB for $199. That's on canadacomputers, tigerdirect, and ncix.

Wonders how many people realize that the anti-GGers tried to block Jennifer Dawe's game from hitting greenlight. Of course, it's pro-GG who are against women in gaming.

It's been sitting at 0C(32F) for the last 2 days, then on saturday or sunday it's supposed to hit 8C(46F) then drop back down. A-typical southern ontario winter, I'm guessing around about Dec 8-20th we'll get our first blizzard, with 1m of snow.
