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?

If I play this, Card Hunter and Hearthstone, will I still have time in the day for meals or waste related activities or should I go full IV/depends?

Also how can you play a card game that doesn't raid your wallet? How can you trust a game like that?

Bitcoin will never crash as long as criminals can use it to launder money. I don't see how anyone sane would speculate on an unregulated stock based crypto currency where the transaction exchanges can be hacked.

The specs are high cause you want the game to be silky smooth when you're shredding cyborgs. This game is pretty awesome. Doesn't play at all like MGS, of course, but the codec conversations are great just like in the MGS days. Plays a little tighter than Bayonetta.

Oh Scarlett won that's cool. People seem to get excited about her SC2 games a lot. She was pretty good at dealing with that infuriating marine mine bullshit.

That bear goes down easy but the ones in the wild are pretty tough for the first part of the game. TES games always have weird difficulty spikes. I was sailing through the game on hard when suddenly the Silver Hand was silver handing me my ass over and over again. Actually turned the difficulty down and left it there, something I almost never do.

It's the same as in Oblivion, if you are just futzing around in the skill tree you can screw yourself. I had myself kind of spread over destruction magic and then points in almost every other skill here and there.

Yeah that price sold me on GTAV, waded past the tent city to get it from Best Buy last night.

Had fun last night rolling past my alma matter. I can't believe it, but there's a small sloped pit next to the track at ULSA that they re-created exactly. Their forward scouting team must have taken a few terabytes of photos around LA.

Pretty impressive what some people can coax out of Source Filmmaker. Seems like a great first film tool for teenagers.

There's some buzz around the nets about being able to connect to your ps4 over the internet from outside home with the Vita for remote play? Can anyone confirm/deny?

Videogame slingbox?

Yeah Steam Offline used to require you go choose it while online to work, which is like signing up for free wifi via email. Apparently this was a "bug" though which it sounds like they've ironed out.

Steam works fine for me and they actually seem interested in innovating. Games on PC are devalued so much nowindays (all 3 fears and both rocksteady batmans for $5 anyone?) that I don't really care about ownership anymore. Do I own this can of Pepsi? Too bad they bought up that Half Life company and then didn't do anything with them though.

Killzone 2 was great, it's not a dumb twitch shooter though so it won't appeal to everyone.

Killzone 2 was good as long as you ignored anything anyone said. The combat was actually varied and there were weird enemy types and situations but the plot was abysmal. Basically Starship Troopers with space nazis instead of bugs.

Don't you think it's kind of funny to say that in the comments section of a video game news website?

That being said I don't understand where people find the effort for these sorts of things.

It's sort of hilarious how hard it can be to install Firefox on a machine that only has IE. I also remember a day when CNet had downloads that were safe. Trust no one.

This casual attitude towards celebrating war leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

Um, while this commercial may be especially egregious, basically your comment describes a vast number of computer games. Are you saying that you don't play any war-themed games at all? They all take a casual attitude toward celebrating war. As Francois Truffaut said, it is impossible to make an anti-war film, because films tend to make war look exciting. The same thing applies to games, and even more-so since you control the unit(s) and have the goal of "winning."

Hmm, well, I actually don't have a problem with the game itself. It's true that war is exciting, even if it's a net negative. I guess my issue with this commercial (and another similar one I've seen) is that it presents war as consequence free. It feels like I'm being brainwashed by some recruiter, even though they really just want me to drop $60 on some code.

If you didn't like Human Revolution, it might be time to hang up the mouse and go back to pen and paper D&D. HR wasn't perfect but it was tons of fun.

I'm excited about more Deus Ex, if you're going to AssCreed something it might as well be a future tech dystopian society that actually has commentary about what the future might look like. Maybe the conspiracies will gain weight if they're built up over several properties too.
