In most Kickstarter/crowdfunding failures there isn't going to be recoverable money.
Exactly. Pay up with what? They failed because they used up all of their funds attempting to deliver the product int he first place.

Im sure that this will be the excuse when Star Citizen goes to hell...

Florida teacher who had sex with three teens sentenced to 22 years in prison

Seriously America, what the fuck?! That's some of the craziest shit I've ever heard.

Pedophiles go to jail there unlike in Canada.

I remember reading a story years ago about a man in Quebec who sodomized his daughters, 14 and 16. The judge let him off with probation (IIRC) because he had preserved the girl's "virginity" since he'd only used the "back door." It was such a major WTF story that I still recall it and remain baffled. Those poor girls are f'd for life emotionally.

That is truly sick, however it has nothing to do with this story. This (very hot) teacher had a relationship with her 17 year old student. While that is indeed poor judgement and grounds for dismisal, there is no way that this was in any way abuse or should it warrant a 20 year jail sentence. It's fucking insane is what it is...this was a consensual relationship.

Fuck Diablo3. They took everything that was good about Diablo2, threw it away, copied shit from WoW, introduced butterfly witches and retarded archangels named 'Imperius', added some more WoW shit, then excreted it out for our gaming pleasure. D3 is seriously Blizzard's worst fail ever. No ammount of fixing will get it anywhere near the quality of even Path of Exile let alone Diablo2:LOD...

I guess thats one way to alienate the current player base
It's the reverse
You're bringing in more players with this to provide more players for the existing ones to matched with and against. It's a win win.

You mean more noobs, griefers and ragequitters to wade through the gutter with??? Im not an elitist asshole by any stretch of the definition but Im sick and tired of the dregs I have to play with in the lower MM bracket. The paradoxal thing is, because of the aforementioned groups of 'trolls' my win rate is abysmally low and I can't get up the ladder where I can at least have some good games. For example yesterday I played three games in the Heroes League, I lost all three. One was a pretty gg, so no complaints there. The better team won. The other two: one guy first picked Nova and proceeded to suck so badly the entire game I swear we would have done better with a bot, and in the other game another first picker picked E.T.C. started crying how he gets no respect and then proceeded to run into the other team feeding them from the first second of the match....

The Hero League needs a new season, that would help. Until then Im just gonna pretend Im playing with bots, since Blizzard really knows how to bring out the best in people....

Putting the "limited" back into "available in limited quanitities".

BTW the Pipboy is a glorified plastic armband for your smartphone. The Pipboy app sounds marginally useful if it can indeed interact with your game in real time, however why someone would wear one on their arm while sitting in front of their PC is beyond me...

One reddit user got a mail from Laidlaw in response to that HL3 video. Just posting it in case you hadn't seen it but make what you will of it:

I sent an email to Marc Laidlaw regarding recent rumors, Valve's silence, and Half-Life as a whole. This is his response

Well it's really nice that he actually answers his fan mail. This is cooler than the actual content of the mail.

The market will work itself out. Ebooks need to be significantly cheaper than printed books, but still not so much so that authors will feel ripped off. A book is a work of labour and love, and most importantly time. It's hard to be a self-supporting author, very few are financially successful.

I got bored and never finished the campaign.

The few online games I tried just ended in a race to rush the fastest.

Pretty boring IMO.

Diablo 3 wasn't any better. I'm done with Blizzard now.


Diablo3 sucked. SC2 was just more of the same old SC formula, which is actually good. The reason none of us play it anymore or have the stomach for it is because we got burned out on SC1 and Brood War all those years ago, and it's not like we are getting any younger or our APM is getting any faster.

News Comments > The Witcher III: Wild Hunt Game+ Mode Coming
36. Re: The Witcher III: Wild Hunt Game+ Mode Coming Jul 28, 2015, 02:18 InBlack
 
I mostly enjoyed this game for the fantastic worldbuilding, atmosphere, characters, and awesome multiple branch quests. I really hated W1 (it felt like a glorified action adventure game) and never even bothered with W2, but something about this third part pulled me in even from the early gameplay videos. It truly felt like a whole package. I don't usually enjoy RPGs where you play as one set character, W3 is one of the exceptions to the rule. It has it's faults, the combat system is servicable at best and really HUH? at worst, and Im not sure the replayability will be there, but IMO it's one of the best games I have played of the past decade. I hope CDProject RED create another game in this world (using this engine) where Geralt is one of the NPCs, and you get to play a brand new character (and class) of your choosing, however they will need to work on their rules and subsystems to get that right....

...and apparently Valve making so much money on other cheaper to produce shit is one of the reasons why HL3 is in development Hell

They bring up some good arguments, although that Mass Effect 3 argument is kind of borderline conspiracy theory nutter stuff...

Doom wasn't solely about speed. It was also about methodically exploring your way through levels that often had branching paths. You could run into a room guns blazing, but you could also find cover and pick off enemies as they approached your position. Fighting your way through a typical Doom level was a very dynamic experience. This is why Serious Sam didn't really capture the feeling of Doom and why this game will probably feel more like Serious Sam than Doom.

Doom wasn't an arena. It was a maze.

Good, now I don't have to post this. This new Doom looks like it will fail to capture Doom gameplay just as the countless knockoffs did over the years.

Serious Sam series is a prime example of how nobody understands the ingredients which made Doom a classic series.

And you base these assumptions on what exactly? That it will feature fast paced gameplay??? On the 15 minutes of gameplay video we've seen that featured what I assume to be the first level and a part of a level in hell?? (That were IMO rather simple, but still pretty awesome) I agree that Doom 1 & 2 featured some never before and since seen level design, and I really doubt that this sequel will reach those heights but why automatically assume that it will have Serious Sam Arena levels?
