News Comments > Tales from the Borderlands Released; OS X Edition Delayed
3. Re: Tales from the Borderlands Released; OS X Edition Delayed Nov 26, 2014, 09:34 Raven
 
I really enjoyed the first part. They mix in quite a lot of Borderlands humor while exploring new ground. There is a part where [MainCharacter2] is scrambling to do something because she knows that [MainCharacter1] is going to do something "unless he's a COMPLETE moron" and then stares at the screen.

That 4th-wall breaking stare as I realized that I forgot to do that while I was controlling [MainCharacter1]...

It's probably the whole thing. Heck, the dude even hashtagged it to associate it with the event. It's like, "okay, dillweed, now we can't even pretend we didn't see it".

Not all speech is free. The tournament can choose who to let compete, and I think that they chose wisely to nip this in the bud. If you want to attract viewers and sponsors as a "pro" event, you're going to need players that act like "pros".

News Comments > Assassin's Creed Unity Crash Workaround
15. Re: Assassin's Creed Unity Crash Workaround Nov 21, 2014, 18:04 Raven
 
I can hilariously confirm that this workaround does NOT work.

The bug is that the game crashes when you press "CONTINUE" from the main menu.

To get to the "My Brotherhood" option, you have to choose CONTINUE to get into the game first. So, Ubi obviously testing this workaround as much as the game...

(You can get to "My Brotherhood" if you play with uPlay offline, but then that menu option doesn't work because you are offline)

I think that it depends on if you appreciate rules changes and additions or hate them.

lol@Bethblog ... how can an official source be a hoax? A trademark is either filed or not. Try again, Bethesda.

You mean like these ones, which were a hoax?

Hang on is that story from Maryland real???? Everyone needs to read it because, just because. Read it. Now.

And? The guy sounds like a whackadoo. In which case the State can order a psychiatric evaluation. That's nothing new. They can also force you to take meds as well. And in the case where people who represent a very possible threat to society at large I view that as a good thing. Too bad they didn't get to all these other lunatics before they went on their killing rampages.

Well, shit, Cutter. Why the fuck aren't you locked up and doped to the gills? If spouting lunacy is all it takes, I mean, that's what you are known for!

Seriously, this sounds like they are totally trying to justify their overreaction after the fact. Uh, well, there was a letter, see...yeah. It totally wasn't just the books that we freaked about. No. Uh...

According to the statement by the teacher's attorney, which you can read here, that really is the reason. He's had issues before, and is getting treatment.

Just another great example of poor journalism in the original WBOC story, not asking any questions that might be important.

Someone didn't notice the note by HardOCP that the first story is in fact fake.

Well fuck it. Neither did I. Thats a fake news site??

source: nationalreport.net

National Report is a news and political satire web publication, which may or may not use real names, often in semi-real or mostly fictitious ways. All news articles contained within National Report are fiction, and presumably fake news. Any resemblance to the truth is purely coincidental.

Google "Paul Horner", and you'll see that he's the subject of a lot of their fake news.

So glad that we are finally past talking about hotel problems and on to covering real stories like rioting and people getting whipped...

Follow up to the Evans article: Kotaku

TLDR: Sometimes someone who thinks they are being "colorful" or "creative" is just being an asshole. There's a lot better Jew jokes out there.

This will coincide with the release of Steam MP Matchmaking and Steam Workshop. The Workshop is what I'm really excited about.

I listed all my globes on the market last night, but by the time I woke up, they were all back in my inventory... I could list them again, but they would keep dropping off after a minute or so.

Yeah, this has to be killing their sales... All these people with steam or other gift cards, jumping to spend their money before any stores open tomorrow, and Steam kills their own store.

Maybe they ought to have an "asshole lounge" so that all the assholes at PAX can go and make fun of everyone without irritating the non-assholes.

An asshole lounge would need to be bigger. Gapingly bigger.

So you're suggesting one of the PA creators be barred from PAX?

I think Blue's statement pretty much sums this up. The way PAX is set up, a real harassment policy would slash the attendance in half, and some of the founders wouldn't even be able to attend.

Until real change happens, they're just segregating classes of people off to their respective "diversity lounges". You can be safe over there, but out on the main floor, you're fair game.

"This is just the first step!" ...so next year there will be "diverse" sections reserved in the back of the shuttle busses?

I dunno, I've never played any of the MSG games. They look really consoly to me. What's the appear here?

This game is different than the rest of the MGS games. One review called it "Fruit Ninja fan-fiction".

Wow, with reviewers like Polygon tanking scores as recently as yesterday, I'd think that they would want to make the servers playable before releasing new content.
