As ridiculous as the WoT series got, you got to admit the friken guy could write a damn good story. Those first few books were simply amazing, then he just introduced way too many characters... shit was half expecting an entire book on the friken chambermaid. I gave up at Path of Daggers, will finish up reading the story at some point... did it get finished up good ? or is the stuff after Jordan bad?

You can tell Jordan sped up the books nearing the end of his writing. Also you have the remember the ones pub'ed after his death still had a lot of his writing/structure in it. I know the ending of the series(last battle and chaps) he almost compleatly wrote before he died. I think books 6,7,8 felt the worst to me because of pacing and filler. It has been so long though i'll have to go back and reread it all one day. I remember before he was terminal he talked about going and exploring the whole other side of the ocean in 2-3 books, you can almost tell "insert 3 books here" in the last book he wrote.

I preordered it, but didn't feel like trying the midnight launch this time. Sadly I've got a few other games to finish before I get to it.

Unless there's a huge update in game play, I think i'd rather they just did another set of expansions.

This is why you have install direct x whenever you install a game. Drivers and other things are being updated all the time. If you released a game with the latest drivers only you wouldn't ever release your game. You'd spend too much time changing the engine, which would brake something else... etc. Just like features in games you have to get to a point your happy with the engine and then just go into bug crunch.

I haven't done it, but I think most of the updates on the driver sides to increase performance is game specific because they're tieing in old ways of doing things (directx) with the newer ways/updates.

It is a fun little game. you can finish it pretty quick(3-5 hours)... but there's challenges and unlocks to replay-ability. It's a fun distraction, but they keep it simple and don't draw out too many missions like main stream games are doing, so the play time total suffers.

I know after watching a few youtube videos of the game I basically put it under the 5-10$ steam sale. Nothing like DS1 or even 2.

I think part of it might be they want too much for the IP's. I understand wanting to get money out of things... but at the same time i'd rather they just sell the IP for penny's and let someone else try their luck at it.

As far as i'm aware there isn't a censored version. There's only one, i'm sure with such a small studio that if it was demanded to have a censored version you just wouldn't be able to buy it. A lot easier then wasting time redoing the game.

Yea I love how they have to "patch" this in moving from Bars to ping for the PC EVERY single COD game. Acting like it's an improvement instead of just what is expected out of any PC game released in the last 15 years.

This reminds me of my first quake map being based around my school. I wonder how copyright works with buildings vs recreations online/in games. I'd think any open space falls under free use.

Let us hook up a mouse and keyboard to the 360/ps3/720/ps4, Give us proper configs for it (no mouse lag options) and see what people REALLY want to play FPS games on.

I think there needs to be a national online sales tax. BUT they can only put it towards providing real (See google fiber quality) internet at low/no cost nation wide. Not just as kickbacks to other companys/utilities.

I might not like the idea of DLC (every now and then it's done right) But I really don't like the idea of season pass's... and it seems like everyone is doing it now.

I'm sorry, but the ref calls just seemed off. I just was looking for a close game (which it did end in). But the start and end seemed like the ravens were given a lot more slack with what they considered acceptable coverage/pushing/holding.

Now if it's a game release i'd be excited... if it's a preview for a preview for a glimpse of a game coming out latter, let's move on. Need more people to just focus on their games and release when it's done.

I've had this installed and on my "find time to play" list for a while. Guess this weekends a good time as any. I'm glad I didn't get sucked into Ni No Kuni yet.

First 20 levels were the best I have ever had in an MMO. The starting island was just wonderful. After you get out into the world it went downhill faster then I ever thought possible. Haven't gone back in years. I'd still recommend doing it free just for the starting.

I think they're shoehorned(is that the right term?) into the gameplay. Kinda like they wanted to do a trilogy, but once you've done the first two you really don't want to change anything just finish it and move on.

I'd love the idea of a dino romp or hunting game in the engine, seems like there is a lot more you can do with the engine just gotta go outside the box.

Maybe it's because it's been so long since I played it. But I remember having good times in AC2. Remember when I logged off one day then came back in and the whole forest and town was cleared because a dragon or something decided to go on a rampage. Was thinking: man this is what all mmo's need to do. Still don't have any mmo with the updates/world changing as the AC 1/2 ones. WoW with phasing is kinda like it, but not the same.
