I think its kind of nice that there's too much to catch up with. With PS Plus and my humble bundle "subscription" I feel like gaming is a service, and I no longer feel responsible for playing shitty games to completion or 100 percenting anything to get my money's worth. Instead, like Netflix, I just play what looks interesting for however long it holds me.

Trilogies of self contained stories have to adhere to the "TMNT3:Turtles in Time" rule established in 1993. Works that do not adhere to this rule must include heavy use of flashbacks to childhood/traumatic past event in the third installment or face censure.

Anyone actually played this yet?

I liked the first one quite a bit more than the luke-warm reviews had led me to predict. Every review mentions the piss poor stealth mechanic, which I don't doubt, but I've seen plenty of baby-bathwater situations before so I'd like to hear a normal person's opinion.

P.S. SOTN for life.

I'd be surprised if people are still playing this in a month but at least its not an ego booster or a credit card attacker like these games usually are.

I've only heard great things about Vaios. Guess that means there's no way they could be profitable.

I hope magic is usable this time. I'll settle for any kind of counter to back stabs though.

This and Demon Souls are games you can get really lost in (in a good way).

I heard a talk from the director of NASA today actually. He gestimated that it will be quite some time before anyone can clean the debris out of low Earth orbit. You can see in that article that a few times the crew had to pile into the Soyuz and get ready to pull the oh shit handle.

It's true that antibiotics are becoming less effective, the last one new one was synthesized in 2009 (there's only so many effective ways to specifically target bacteria). However the immune system can still fight off bacteria pretty good so what this really means is that older and younger people will have a much higher risk of mortality in the hospital.

As far as a virus, even in a horrible pandemic the world won't be "culled". Even the awful Spanish Flu was 5-10% fatality rate. Some are higher (like Ebola) but they're so lethal they can't spread very effectively.

Netflix has a bunch of nominees this year streaming. The Hunt (frontrunner for foreign win) and the Act of Killing doco were just added recently.

Pretty impressive.

They misread the market pretty badly this time but they have the best IP portfolio. This is a ways off but they could strike with another console in the middle of this coming generation and hit gold I think.

Always has been and continues to be too niche for me though.

Are you guys serious? You don't remember the nearly deafening outcry about no backwards compatibility?

Granted, this still invalidates your old library.

Came to argue about BI, but stayed to agree about a great year in gaming. Spoiled for riches. Some of the coolest and gripping games ever.

I don't really understand why people think the violence doesn't fit. Booker is literally Columbia's antichrist, the jingoism is out of control, they're on the brink a civil war when you show up, and as discussed earlier Booker is a man of violent means, in the past and the various nows

I think Levine is a very deliberate game designer, as evidenced by that small scene with the guitar where they walk you through some of how he built the scene in the end credits. It seemed to me that the violence is almost hilariously meaningless, but on purpose. Literally everything you do serves no purpose as they are erased from the timeline. In fact your entire struggle is erased at the end by a simple choice. That endless fighting at the end was to show the descent of principle into grinding murder. Just my two cents.

Resistance 3 was released September 2011. That means they're killing off a game that hasn't even made it to three years old. sad

I like top ten lists. I don't think they have any inherent value (if many people agree on something that's usually a sign it's not that great), but it forces people to define and explain why the like something. It forces you to have an opinion.

Not that you have to, of course. But I enjoy criticism so when someone tells me they don't have a favorite movie or song I find it frustrating.

Not as frustrating as not winning $50,000 in the BL2 loothunt though. Damn, couldnt compete with the post carders.

Did they say in the video at what stretch goal they'll release the game? 50 million?
