I fear a future X-Wing or TIE fighter by EA. Just imagine it - energy management would be made less important, and your ship would regenerate health.

Also from that site Young Girl Swears God Told Her How to Draw (White) Jesus, Girl is White

Doesn't surprise me though that a religious site reports on games. Younger generations of religious people are more open to Tech. I had religious grandparents - mostly just my grandmothers - that never watched TV or used computers as they became better over time.

Also I really want C&C2 that's NOT f2p - my favorite faction was the rebels, or whatever they were called from the first game.

Yikes man, how'd you lose your save?

Haven't felt the need to 'sexy time' in TW3 - mostly just exploring and discovering things. I really enjoyed how they portrayed Keira Metz, pretty spot on from the books, but I denied her 'advances.' I like her a lot better than Triss or Yenn. Personally I feel really bad since I had Geralt romance Triss in the first two games and when the choices carry over, and you finally meet up with Yennefer, she says something like "you seemed to be getting along fine without me with Triss" or something that and Geralt responds with "Yenn... I didn't know, I had amnesia" and she replies back "Oh, so that's your excuse?."

Back then I had no idea who Yennefer was until the various flashback cutscenes, but figured she was dead/missing, and then I started reading the books to get a waaay better idea of what happened previously.

Hmm, I heard about the Red Ash debacle. They really should have waited until their first KS was done to flesh out something decent for creating that new Red Ash IP whoever was the one that pushed it too soon (the publisher or Comcept).

The gameplay footage for Mighty No. 9 is looking pretty solid though.

If that's the case, and they don't have a game plan for how anyone will play this years from now if the servers go down... kind of screwed.

Sure they have a game plan. All you need to do is buy Star Wars Battlefront 2017. Then, when those servers are retired due to extreme age, buy the newly released Star Wars Battlefront 2018 instead.

You're Probably right... The Dark Age of Gaming is Here.

To me it just matters what type of game you want to play most.

On the one hand, WL2 is all about strategy, with the right amount of challenge, plus good story telling for a top down and a is a direct follow-up to the WL1 story.

Fallout 4 is a lot of unknowns at the moment, but so far revealed to be more like a Build Your House in an Apocalypse FO simulator/Actiony/Run-N-Gun Sandbox. (strategy, command-control of companions, attention grabbing story elements unknown)

All indications are pointing to the game using instanced servers that you'll join through matchmaking.

They've already announced that the game wont use Battlelog and the alpha test didn't have any form of server browser - in game or web based.

You'll also notice no mention of bots for off-line team deathmatch.

If that's the case, and they don't have a game plan for how anyone will play this years from now if the servers go down... kind of screwed.

Riiiight, for "defense" research projects too. Come on now, we all know its going to be for an even bigger spying project named "The Machine" after Person of Interest.

Well I'm sure EA will be happy to allow you to do that, provided you pay for it.

Hahaha, well, I'm definitely not pre-ordering this. No way, not even if the pre-order has a playable Wicket bonus - but I'm a sucker for SW... so if its way cheap a while after, maybe, no promises to EA though.

I wonder if other parameters can be altered such as the timer, total # of players, or kill count as a server host, like the good 'ol days of dedicated server gamin'. 10 Minutes is not enough for an epic battle unless its supposed to be exactly like those small modes in BF4. Like if there was a Conquest version, I would immediately switch it to 40-60 minutes, 300-500 kills, maximum players, etc.

What's more scary to me is that issues like those are generating a more apathetic tone in the public. Like "haha, this thing is spying on me" "hi nsa/facebook/whatever, here's my meta-data." And we know powerful organizations are still getting away it which is what generated the apathy (because when something goes truly unpunished, those that do it continue their practice); since all that spying activity was swept neatly under the rug. Its a very strange, scary, and fascinating part of history to be in.

I sometimes stream games just for myself; but also on twitch mainly to test my PC rig.

Waiting to see what happens. This may make me forget about R:TW2/Atilla, since its a fresh world having nothing to do with history. I was definitely pretty irritated in the past with my comments on R:TW

From what I understand, this is yet another different group of CA making this and not the team currently in charge of 'history' TW Department of CA.

Those games don't interest me, but a co-worker said their kids love them. Popular as 'let's plays' as well.

As far as the religious nature of the guy. Spoiler alert, I used to be "on the path" (very religious) in a Christian denomination. I am no longer - I only consider myself non-religious. I can understand why he 'thinks' someone reached down and gave him +10 Luck to his Life Stats.

Even if I remotely thought about playing WoW again, I would probably just wander around all the abandoned areas. Everyone just flocks to the new zones from what I've read.

This is awesome news. Waiting for Shadowrun: Hong Kong as well. Here's to hoping for actual modern day BT game that is actually good and worth my time/investment.

For the question on why GOG doesn't release the old MW's, my spidey sense has been telling me that it is happening slowly. The MW games are almost always near the top of the request wishlist for games for GOG to release/make compatible. They were neck to neck for a long time with X-Wing/TIE Fighter and those took forever to get released, but eventually did.

is Weisman no longer (or was he really ever?) associated with Piranha Games and MWO?

No, Weisman has been un-associated with Piranha for a long time.

Originally Weisman had a different studio "Smith and Tinker" before founding HB. At the time, Weisman was trying to get an actual Mech Warrior 5 game made and also contracted with Piranha. Something or other fell through, not enough funding, etc.

All of that happened a little before crowdfunds started taking off on Kickstarter. If only they had decided to wait and make MW5 a 1 year or so later on KS, it might have happened under Weisman's "Wise" guiding hand when it comes to all things BT/MechWarrior.

Anyways, when MW5 couldn't be made, he shut down SmithandTinker and he cut any ties with Piranha when he saw that the only deal that could be had was when Piranha asked Microsoft to make a "MW" game "but only if its f2p" and thus the rest is history with the crapola experience that is MWO. Essentially he wanted a "true" AAA not F2P MW, SP experience.
