The only games that I can think of that did romance right was BG2, and PS:Torment. Meh it's a clickbait article though, if someone really wants to see "sex in the industry" go look at the gaming market in japan. You can go from the extreme end to the not so much. Peoples eyes would melt out of their skulls at what you can buy at a specialized 100 yen store that's sexually provocative and marketed at individual groups. Nothing quite like seeing a group of 13-17 year old girls getting heavily engaged in shota or yaoi.

Is this where Nvidia gets to cry foul about their competitor getting to have an edge in certain games now like AMD did?
They can try, the difference is the SDK is open to anyone who wants to implement it, that includes nvidia. So if nvidia doesn't want to include the optimizations, then it's no ones fault other than theirs. Unlike physx which is closed source, and will fully fuck-on anyone who dares use a nvidia and ati card at once, including reversing gravity, and slowing the machine down to a crawl. Want a good example of it? Try the metro games.

I've been getting a lot of crashes with the new Tropico 5 patch, 1.01 seemed a lot more stable.

I'll have to have it a go later with a sandbox game and see if I get the same. Go do a post up in the 1.02 bug thread and post your dumps, the devs actually do listen scary huh?

Maybe it's me, but it seems like the consumerist is running down hill as fast as it's legs will carry it. Even the site design is full-on shit now, looking like the chive.

Listen, there is no console that can ever compete with the latest PC hardware. They can hate all they want, but the console will always be limited to the hardware it comes with
Err... when was that ever the point of consoles?
Every time a braindead developer or the console makers open their mouths, screaming and flailing about that the graphics on 3 year old hardware are superior. See the DA:I video from bioware from yesterday for example.

I like the Mass Effect universe but was never a huge fan of Shep. I'll probably like whatever new setting they have cooked up more due to his or her absence.
I could never stand manshep, femshep though makes the game much more enjoyable. Especially playing renegade.

Bingo. And 3 didn't even have a good enough story to make up for it. ME1 was almost great, and I so hoped it would be a springboard to a great series. Bleh.
That's because some of the best stuff was in the DLC, which sucks ass unfortunately.

I dunno man, much as it pains me to say it, it does look pretty good at this point. I can only hope the Qun hold a major role in it.
Well that's part of the problem right? It can look good, and suffer from all kinds of consolitis. Damn it Crushbug how about giving us a hint on the UI or mechanics of combat.

Well there's a qunari female in there. But nothing on combat yet, or the UI, or anything else. Starting to look like Mass Effect the Dragon Age.

I want to play it so bad but $60 is a bit steep for me right now :/
Seen it as cheaply as $22 on G2A.com(NA/EU-no germany) already, it's ~44 and change right now.

Yep an ass load of bullshit. Funny how those "indie devs" that have discovered the PC are making more money on it than they were with their "partnership" with consoles.

Even as an American and a (former) fan of American football (no time to watch sports these days), I have to admit that European football has the better claim to the name "football." I've always felt that American football should be called something else, given that it's barely played with the feet at all. I have no idea what that might be, but I've always felt it has been misnamed.
You should watch the CFL instead, much better in terms of football than the NFL.

I skipped the first hence the giant hole of knowlege. only got the 2nd on sale on a whim last year and was blown away how good it was.
Play the first one, it's much closer to a traditional RPG. As a fun note, choices in the first game import to the second, and into the third.

Or potions. Dive with limited oxygen to harvest sea plant that can be made into a water-breathing potion ala Skyrim.

God did Witcher 2 love it's potions.
Well if ya played the first witcher on any setting other than the first they became mandatory. Witcher 2 though? Even on dark mode you could skip using them if you were careful.

More importantly look at Is There Any Deal first because a lot of those sales on the Uplay store aren't that great. Most of those games have already been on other places way cheaper.
Well now that's useful as all hell.

Also what was that other game that recently released a trailer about some inquisition or something?
I think you're talking about a game with dragons and perhaps an age in it. Though that series is still dead in my books.

Yea, I can't argue....I pre-ordered. Also going to get a physical copy for all of the goodies....
Can't blame ya, if I had the cash I'd get the physical copy too. I miss the days when we got shit like cloth maps and statues for nothing with the standard editions. Speaking of which good heads up on the Uplay store sales, anyone who doesn't have anno2070 the complete ed, on there is a good deal.

HOLY SHIT! I hadn't watched the video yet....wow....wow.....just....wow. I really hope it looks that good (riding the horse and the walking on that bluff look like in game).

Can we hope for Witcher in a Skyrim type world and scale!? That would be awesome....

By the way, here's a link you can throw your money at. Apparently the game world is huge now, can't remember how large they said.

20% off if you own both Witcher games on GOG. 10% if you only have one of them.
Technically if you own the game on any service, you can add it to GOG by using this link here and that will let you get the full discount amount.
