I take it you have heard of the axiom, there is no such thing as bad publicity? If you believe that people in the United States don't get paid for public speaking events then you are just as deluded as those idiots who are sending the death threats. Please do tell me how these death threats are silencing Anita instead of giving her ever more exposure in the media? I have nothing personal against Anita, nor do I have anything against her values, I am simply pointing out that history has shown that attempts to silence, persecute, threaten or destroy popular movements has only ever empowered them (and those who represent themselves as leaders of said movements)

Lol, why so critical, Half Elf? It all appears to be in game footage at least.

This game will definitely be worth the $9.99 or less that I'll spend on it during a Steam sale.

True but most games are only worth the $5-$10 or less sales. Helf is right though. Ubisoft has gotten way too formulaic. Even Blood Dragon - which was a hoot - was really just window dressing. Too much of the same from them over the last few years. Familiarity breeds contempt.

Speak no more heresy heathen! Blood Dragon was awesome. However that was an exception to the rule, Farcry games are barebones and devoid of soul. I hope that they eventually release a sequel to Blood Dragon, now that would be pretty cool.

Back then though reviewers had a little bit more integrity and were not afraid to grade a game according to its actual merits.

There is some very serious misremembering going on here. Very, very serious.
And not giving enough credit to reviewers today.

Since you have such a clear and absolutely perfect memory, care to clarify what exactly Im misremembering here? Also one example out of a 100 does not make a rule or a standard. Maybe things are changing again as the industry is maturing and quality of content becomes more important than marketing but if this is indeed the case it's not there yet and it will take a while to get there.

I doubt that she is sending death threats to herself. But she is making them public, that much is true. Its an infinite closed loop, which feeds attention seekers (see I went out of my way not to use the 'bad' word just in case) and is certianly giving her a lot more visibility in the media and even bigger speaking/presenting $$$.

Anita's crying all the way to the bank. Oh the horror.

10/10 doesn't necessarily mean perfect

Perfect is literally what 10/10 means to anyone with a working brain. If a publication believes in earnest they've reviewed a flawless game (minor bugs not withstanding), great, give it 10/10. Otherwise they should stop reviewing games or stop using such a tiny scale.

I remember back in the day (90s) when PC gamer ruled supreme and people still read and bought gaming magazines. The scale was from 0-100, basically % and they got the gist of it pretty much down tight. Back then though reviewers had a little bit more integrity and were not afraid to grade a game according to its actual merits.

fantastic! I only care about the naval combat anymore, ship battles are just so much fun, fighting on decks if you get boarded. Upgrading ships cant wait. I wont even be buying Unity because of no ships

I have huge hopes for this game:

http://www.navalaction.com/#ageofsail

An age of sail simulator with a late 2014 release date (probably alpha or beta). I dont preorder games as a rule, but Im seriously considering pitching to support them as tehre are exactly "0" simulators of this variety and of this kind of fidelity. And its only 39,99$.

They can go fuck themselves with their episodic content. I had a small tiny tingling hope that this game would turn out ok, that is crushed now.
So you'd rather wait for them to develop the entire game than play each part when it's ready? Bizarre.


You know what else is bizzare? Waiting for HL episode 3. Know what else is bizzare? Waiting for Blizzard to finish stretching their StarcraftII game into three seperate games. How many years has it been since the Terran campaign? Know what else is bizzare? Paying through the nose for content which might never ever see the light of day...or paying for virtual items for a game which is not even in beta yet. I could go on, but it would probably be pointless since you have so much invested in this that you obviously can't see the forest from the trees.

Yeah gotta say the game is growing on me...the mechanics are simplistic and repetetive but there is fun to be had in the game once you start doing more of the side missions and just plain run around wreaking havoc.

Was this on console first? Was it really that bad?

It has a few defenders like anything else on the internet but yes it was that bad. This started out as a Kinect game but when it became clear that doing anything with Kinect is fucking awful they decided to keep going instead of just wisely scrapping the whole project. The good part is the graphics, its a very pretty game. The bad part is pretty much everything else. The combat seems visceral to start but becomes repetitive and shallow quickly. The story is not even worth mentioning.

I suspect people will feel more favorable about it if they go into it with very low expectations and pay less than $15. I only put a few hours into it at a friends place but that was enough to say "ok lets not play this ever again and wheres Forza?".

Man you just described Shadow of Mordor. The story part is better though, but the combat is very repetetive even though the missions are quite varied. I had to force myself to play it yesterday and in the end it did grow on me a little bit, so its not a total loss. I just wish it took a little bit more skill to pull of those nice fatalites and whatnot, instead of just LMB button mashing (and the ocasional RMB) and pressing "F" when your sword lights up...

"It was simply the fact that his batch had a higher yeast concentration, and one of the by-products of yeast is excess carbon dioxide," said Stites.

He says his company pressured test the carbonated drink to be 14 PSI -- or pounds per square inch. He says bottles were designed to handle 42 PSI.

"The yeast was just building up the pressure in the bottles over a seven to 10 day period," said Stites.

"Heey man did you put the yeast in yet?"
"Nah, I'll do it now. In you go little yeasties"

As an ocasional connoisseur, I can definitely envision it unfolding this way.
