Anyone else find it really, and I mean really fucking stupid that the target of that resistance fighter squad was a FUCKING STATUE???

No. Icons and the destruction of icons are an important part of any resistance movement. It also indicates that said resistance has the ability to strike targets, sometimes symbolic is as important as anything else.

Two kills from overwatch? Damn, someone got lucky!

I'll bet that they've adjusted hit rates since the last game, since one of the big things that a lot of people complained about was the RNG being really messy. Though the random seed option fixed a lot of it for those that like to save scum.

It's a good day when there are more comments about Deus Ex than GG.

That's because GG is pretty much done what it needs to do. The only enemies it has left are anti-gg professional victims and e-celebs, who continue to make giant asses of themselves and drive more people to us, or they get exposed for the slime that they are. The vast majority of sites(even gameranx) who were said lulz-ethitcs have disclosure and ethical guidelines now. Sites that don't, continue to either see advertising revenue drop, or site traffic to drop.

The only big thing sitting in GG in terms of 'shit to do' is the SPJ(society for professional journalists) airplay event. And even the most die-hard anti-GG supporters refuse to go on air to back up the bullshit they've been saying for 9 months.

Based on the screenshot though, it seems Gunther got a new pair of cyber-pants.

He needed new pants, too much lemon-lime soda spilled on them.

Yeah sorry there, any site that uses 'the mary sue' as a source for something doesn't have credibility on shit.

But I guess GG must be doing something right, otherwise all those sites that now have ethical guidelines and disclosure policies wouldn't have done it.

And can't wait for DX: Revision to go live.

Nvidia had much better drivers than AMD, glad you agree.

Fixed that for you, after all can't remember the last time a AMD driver messed up fan profiles and cooked video cards.

Yeah, I hope they'll sell only a handful of PC copies because of this fiasco and won't bother with a PC port next time. Either do it like Rockstar or don't do it at all.

Looks to be the case that they're only going to sell a handful. Who knew? You sell something that's an actual piece of shit and people get angry. Right now only 30% of the reviews on Steam are positive, that's out of ~2700 reviews.

hopefully this driver takes care of the driver crash issues of the last two updates. I had to roll back to 347 to stop the problems.

But ... but...nvidia has great drivers! That's what people keep saying, and AMD drivers are garbage. I kid, somewhat it was the 320 series drivers(tdr city, coupled with bsod's and piss poor performance) that made me jump from nvidia to amd. I'm far happier with my 7950.

The thing is, a game can push the envelope, explore new concepts, and all that cool artsy stuff but it can still suck or fail at its goals. Art style/quality, voice and other sound, controls, UI, performance and other production value/polish elements can really help a game like this succeed.

Except this game did none of that. In fact, it was worse than some of the shovelware back in the 90's and that's saying something. Not only did the developers fail to read their audience, they failed even the basic elements of game design.

Now I'm curious, what would the crowd here consider a "gamer's game" anyhow?

It seems to be it would be something like Super Mario Bros/Super Mario Galaxy: heavy on the gameplay, lots of variety, and easy to play but very difficult to master.

Sounds about right, since most of us here are from the olde school realm of gaming. Where there wasn't really any hand holding and manuals came in 170 page books that required reading before you started to play.

How could this have failed? Perhaps it's just a subconscious nod to the devs true calling: House Keeping

That's easy, all the consultants they hired for PR and so on were the same ones that pushed the "gamers are dead" articles in august of last year. Funny huh? I guess gamers *do* have to be your audience if you want to make money.

Crystal clear..

apartheid
[uh-pahrt-hahyt, -heyt, uh-pahr-tahyt, -teyt]
noun
1.(in the Republic of South Africa) a rigid former policy of segregating and economically and politically oppressing the nonwhite population.
2. any system or practice that separates people according to color, ethnicity, caste, etc.
Seems to me then that mechanical apartheid is appropriately named. Since that is the primary theme of the new DX game.

Except, nobody is going to see it that way even if you were right about the prices.

The bundles are entered as separate products in Steam which allows them to set a higher price point and therefore not illegal.

Actually Bestbuy here in Canada were slapped with a fine a few years ago for doing exactly that. It was bundling extras into other things, just like this. There have also been clothing stores that did the same thing, and were slapped with fines for doing it.

As for where I got it? Those would have been the prices that I saw previous to pre-post summer sale. I'm also in Canada.

It's illegal to give away free stuff in Canada? That seems to contradict some of the things I've heard.
The price previously was $59.99, the price was raised to $79.99, then it was stated that "free items" were given away at the higher price, with the discounted price being exactly the same as the previous list price. This falls under materially false, and misleading representation of the sale price. Thus illegal, under canadian law.

Except they didn't change the price of GTA V... They're offering special bundles that include other games and/or in-game cash for free. Don't waste your time and theirs.

Except doing so is illegal, and that's the job of the competition bureau.

I am tempted to get Valkyria Chronicles, but watching Let's Plays it looks really simplistic. Also the story looked full of every Janime cliche in the book.

I thought the same thing, I picked up about 6mo ago for $7 and it's an incredibly great game. More-so for the story than anything else, but the combat is fun as hell. It's worth the $5 or so that it's selling for right now.

FYI for any canucks, you should be filing a complaint with the competition bureau on the pricing change. It's illegal to raise a price, and claim a discounted price like that. And before someone goes hur-dur-dur-america, since Steam/Valve sell a product in Canada directly to Canadians, in Canadian pricing, they're directly subject to the same laws.

If only they'd shut down the CBC - or make taxpayers opt in to paying for it, and allow others to opt out.

They've been trying for a couple of years, and every time it happens the shit weasels in Toronto and Vancouver start throwing a hissyfit because 'muh culture' or something.
