I cant view the clip at work nin, but lemme guess. Jailbreak?

Yep, Phil Rudd is a baddass. Still, hasn't entered a plea which is worrying. Damn, first Malcolm goes off the deep end, now Rudd with this shit.

Pirating is NOT stealing. It is illegal copying. If I went to your house and 'copied' your car with a magical machine from the future and drove away in my copy would that be stealing?? CJ might be a loudmouth troll or whatever but you sound like a braindead worker drone right from 1984 with that comment PH.

Kind of relieved. Why does it have to be set in one of the US cities? Couldnt they up the ante a little bit? Maybe let our hero travel to some more varied locations, you know like in Fallout2.

I think there are probably more important things than location. It could actually have decent writing, you know, like in Fallout 2.

Bethesda's Fallout3 had mediocre writing at best. New Vegas improved on that a whole shitload, but its unrealistic to expect them to deliver something on par with Fallout2's phenomenal dialogue. Curiously their writing while not anything special was always better in the Elder Scrolls games, but then again those are two completely different settings and obviously ES is their in-house baby.

Taking bribes is illegal, unless its not. Mostly its not. Especially if you are an elected official. However if you do shit of your own volition you will most def. be prosecuted for taking bribes. Good old fashioned democracy at work!

The preview on Videogamer.com for this was not encouraging. All Skyrim style MMO filler quests apparently. The author said outside of NPCs who give you quests you can't really interact with anyone. The people who do give you quests just basically talk at you and tell you how many bear asses they want. It sounds like a love letter to Skyrim without any real depth or substance. Like the guy in the video said, I hope they were saving the best for last because he got to play the first 4 hours of the game and it was dull, the story didn't make much sense and it felt nothing like DA:O.

It looks like Kingdoms of Amalur or something. Why is it so hard to understand what people liked about DA:O and do that again with a different story and characters? I can live with ARPG combat but DA:O oozed choice, dialogue and characterization. Sidequests were often deep and full of impact. I would blame it on newer employees but even long time people there don't seem to get it anymore.

I can answer all of those questions with two words: Electronic Arts.

I was trying to make light fun of the fact that consoles were marketed for children and that most of us started gaming on consoles, when we were obviously still kids.

Democracy cannot co-exist with unbridled Capitalism, discuss.

Nothing to discuss there. You are completely, 100% correct. Capitalism at its philosophical root values the right of the individual above all else, including all other individuals. Democracy is based on the changing values of a collective (citizen voters) and the delegation of these values as political power to elected officials.

The 'illusion of democracy' works with capitalism very well though. If you need proof of this just look out a window on election day.

Really Volition! I am still waiting for my Freespace 3!

Wow, took longer than I thought for someone to bring up FS3...didn't Volition lose the rights to the Freespace franchise also? So sad they never continued with it.

This will make you sick to your stomach.



Oh shit. In this new day and age of enlightened developers returning to the space sim genre, that licence couldnt be in worse hands. Fucking shit.

Wow you guys, build a bridge and get over it. I have it on the console along with other console only games, it is worth it. A gamer buys games and systems that we enjoy. Hell, unless you are very young, we all had consoles at one point or another - if you didn't, go get a NES, GameCube, SuperNes, and Genesis, as you are missing some of the best gaming of all time.

When I was a child I spoke, thought and played as a child. When I became a man, I put away childish things.

With that said this looks pretty cool. Still not buying a damn console to play it. The wait for the PC version will be well worth it methinks.

Stupidest "MMO" on the market gets an update for all 500 of its spreadsheet reading players. Another so so patch designed to trick people into thinking its an actual game

Why dont you stick to things your mind can actually comprehend. Like breathing through your mouth. Or WoW.

WoW is basically MMO light, but heavy on the digital crack content that power care-bears are so into. Kudos to the behavioral scientists at Blizzard for getting the digital crack forumla so tight.

Isn't this like a really, really old game? 2008 I believe it was released or thereabouts. KUDOS to Volition for still supporting the game. I guess people are still playing this in multiplayer?

I've never understood how this works, maybe u can explain it to me. What exactly does TrackIR do in this game? I assumed that using the Oculus alone would be enough for head tracking and accessing your left and right menu's.
Yeah you don't use both. It is Oculus or TrackIR.
I am using my TrackIR and it is great. Looking at the sides to access the menus, tracking targets, look out the window as you fly by planets, stars, look around you while docking, so many uses. Even when you are launching from a docking platform you can look around you to make sure you don't bump into other ships. One of the big transport ships cockpit is all glass even the bottom, so while you are docking you can actually look down and see the platform beneath you to align your ship. I mean it is just hard to put it into words how amazing the immersion is with a head tracking device.

This paragraph can be summarized in two complicated words: Situational Awareness. In fighter pilot terms you either have it or dont. If you dont youre dead.

Yeah ... when I'm rolling I don't always realize what a "wall" it actually is. Then I hit "post comment," and I see it and I'm like ... Oh fuck. If I didn't know I wasn't mentally ill ... I might think I was mentally ill.

You seem rather bitter and angry about an issue you really shouldn't be bitter and angry about. Why are the recently updated or posted ethical policies something to get upset over? I'm personally very happy to see it, and while it's true there's no big flashing neon sign that says "GAMERGATE MADE US DO IT." the fact that sites that have been around for years all start posting policies, updating policies, or including disclosure statements around the same time? Well, that's clear enough indication for me. And the important thing is that, regardless of the cause, it is happening.

If you believe it's completely unrelated, well, that's your prerogative. I'm going to remain optimistic for the future of game journalism, however, and not take the "All hope is lost, you are powerless!" attitudes that some people have seriously.

I can understand people getting heated about sexism and misogyny and death threats. But ethical policies? I don't see the controversy here guy. I should think that's something we all want and should agree on, yet you still seem somehow angry about it.

It is the first responsibility of every citizen to question authority
- Benjamin Franklin

Well said NKD. The quote is apt in regards to beremot's and some other comments. Why the unquestioning loyalty to these gaming rags? Why not be appreciate the fact that they need to be more open about these kinds of things.

With regards to this new CoD, no dedicated servers (which means rampant and unchecked cheating) so it's an automatic no sale at least in my case.

I noticed those guys carried some sort of space suits. Can you shoot holes in the ship/station so that the air escapes into vacuum?? Would the air get sucked out and would there be zero sound effects (since in a vacuum sound does not carry) except for those that are carried through your own body to your ears? Can they add that as another million dollar goal/prize or would that be too much of a stretch??
