Don't need a moral horse to know this game is a piece of trash. And people wonder why legislators are calling for game reform. When they push the envelope this far just because they can, THQ deserves all the crap they get about this game.

Actually since morals are based on the person, and in America we believe in having freedom enough to make our own choice, it's not up to you or anyone else to tell us something is "trash". It's your right to say "I think this game is trash" or "I did not like this game because of these reasons" But you can't just force your opinion on people by saying the game is trash.

Having a rating system is fine, but if you force it upon people you shouldn't be able to ban things. Class them were you want to, but making it so people can't make their own choices about something is just taking away freedom. I think the whole rating system is a flawed attempt to make people happy and cover up real problems.

Let's look at saints row 4. What have we seen? We've seen a story line that involves you fighting off aliens to save the world. We've seen innovative weapons and the use of super powers like in comic books. When you undress the character it is CENSORED in the "bad parts". It's open world so you can go through the entire game without even seeing some of the "objectionable" content. If your problem was with 3, everything in the game was based on real life things that happen with an action movie twist to make sure the character lived. OH yea you can do everything in the GTA series(Biggest/closest game in category) that you can do in saints row series. That's been on the market for years and get's a lot more attention.

It's been shown the entire reason that legislators call for game reforms and other types of censoring of media is just to try to distract the public from other things they aren't doing. OR that they are trying to ride a moral high horse and push their beliefs on others.

I'm mixed on the superman movie. On one side we finally got the awesome super hero fights/actions that superman deserves. On the other we got an insanely shallow movie with just enough plot to string us along between said fights. Everyone but the actors for superman and lois did a wonderful job with what they had, but again the script just wasn't there to let any of them shine except zod. For the first two, he did okay as superman, but we didn't even really see clark kent enough to really judge. Lois seemed weird and shallow of a character. I think the main thing about the script I hated was the time frame. When he learned to swim/move at super speeds, shoot lasers out of eyes, and all the other good stuff over the whole course of his childhood... BUT it takes him a good 5 mins to learn to jump and fly? Then he TELLS the villein HOW to get over his discomfort so he can take over/destroy the world? Don't get me started about lois lane taking less then a week to figure out who superman is...

Now that's funny. Almost every server I play on is sub 100 ping. When I filter HC I got a choice of at least a dozen, more if I go to noob mode "normal". Just make sure you have your settings right for filters. Also I think most servers are running none base of some form by now, so if you just got the base game you might be out of luck... other then hte free CC exp.

I've played every BF, but they aren't tied into my Origins account... mostly because I can't find the CD keys for anything other then the exp's and it won't let me tie in my old account. *sigh*

Slick: I agree, i'm one of those people that love seeing the behind the scenes and dev process. Done tons of MMO alphas and betas and always am amazed how games change as they go. The comment was more towards the company's that aren't doing true alphas but instead using it as a press tool. Problem I see it is the current audience can't really handle having "broken" things like alphas. It's getting better with all the indie ones now, but still most of the kids are horrible out there and the internet doesn't help in that regard.

Aren't they supposed to be paying QA people to test early rough Alpha builds? How can they ask for regular online gamers to do their work as volunteers? Shameful...

Throwing an Alpha out isn't a horrible thing... it's that they IGNORE the feedback from the community when they do it that's horrible. Personally I wouldn't have company's show anything of a game until late beta/1-2 months before release. That way everything is feature finished and working reasonably. Sadly it's not the world we live in... were it's expected to have 1-2 years Hype leading up to AAA releases.

I still think you can't make a MMORPG for Consoles. The whole closed system of their online component just limits it and divides up users. At least this reminds me that I have space marines still to play through.

News Comments > Diablo III Expansion in 2014?
13. Re: Diablo III Expansion in 2014? Jun 12, 2013, 02:15 Linksil
 
I think one of the problems is it's almost impossible to tell the player count. I mean there's no chat rooms. What chat there is randomly numbered to give you no idea of how many channels have people(vs D2). There always seems to be people playing, but the real numbers are so hard to figure out unless your blizzard. I expect the exp pack early 2014, if it does what the D2 exp pack did then a lot of people will forget about the last year of complains, except those on here and redit will still complain. Even without it the QOL in D3 is a lot better then a year ago.

Stunned

Did you just try to say that Starship Troopers movies were GOOD?! No, no, no, no, no, HELL NO, no.

Go read the book, then watch the movie. As much as people say the movie never lives up to the book? The only thing in common the movie has with the book is the name of the protagonist, and the fact that humans are fighting "bugs". That's it. There isn't enough similarity there in the movie to even associate one with the other.

I hate those movies.

The first one is a classic. The sequels suck.

The movie is very different from the books, but the movie stands on its own as both a valid entry in the action-scifi genre, and at the same time a satire of it. Great FX that still hold up, a great score, and some great over the top hammy acting by Michael Ironsides. Would you like to know more?

Sadly I agree the Starship troopers movies were good. First one being the best and is still one of the best sounding movies out there. The second one felt like it was jumping shark, and the third set up the power suits and made it as if the movies were more of a lead in/alt timeline from the books. Personally I LOVED the computer animated series they did and still want to kill someone for cutting it short with a cliffhanger. If you ever go into a movie thinking it's going to live up a book I really would like to know what kind of drugs your on. Now Enders game MIGHT just prove me wrong...

Hell I'd be tempted to offer then 15k right off the bat to get the IP. Look Interplay that's a 100% profit! I loved the whole back story and ideas behind FreeSpace. Would almost be worth it just to be able to let the mod community run wilder then they already have knowing they aren't going to get sued.

wait, are people still playing the same 4 Acts over and over since the games release over a year ago?

or is there something new?

Well there's the Uber boss battles that are new. But now(Since the last patch) people are playing acts 1-3 (I think a bit of 4 but not that much). Because 99% of the people just ran Act 3 over and over and over. Kinda like the cow level or Meph runs.

While loving Crysis 1.... 2 feel flat and 3 just felt like more of the same. The bow helped for an hour, but then yea it just wasn't that fun. I basically had to force myself to play through the last 2 hours just to finish the game. Once I finished 2 it was uninstalled. 3 took a few days until I realized I had no urge to go back for anything SP or MP. Watch a let's play if you care about the story, otherwise pass.

I didn't even think they have limited installs... if they do I haven't hit it, reinstalling the game 6+ times with upgrades and comp switches.

The way it's worded about the island sounds perfect for a SP jaunt... oh wait we can't make SP stuff for DLC. Oh yea and how is going to an island returning to the spiritual roots? Didn't the FIRST game take place on an island?
