Lets fix that statement:

“It is profitable for us when you go buy something instantly, the instant 'gotcha' feel, that 'we took noobs for a ride' high,” he said, “however after the honeymoon of nubs spending was over, we were no longer seeing much profit and want to appear like we care with this new update.


This must be true. The game has been out for a year and a third nearly, and they're just now noticing what everyone has been complaining about since day 1?


Still haven't gotten this but if they get around to finally making D3 correctly I'd be happy to pick it up on sale one day.

News Comments > Steam Greenlights 100 Titles

My guess is someone at Valve headquarters was rooting around the Steam backend and rediscovered the Greenlight program which had been sitting abandoned for months after everyone wheeled their desk over to L4D3.

One week later, oh yeah, here's a stress test(okay?).

Square Enix Head Talks Successes, Confirms Tomb Raider Reboot Sold More Than 4 Million.

Only two million more to go, until they reach their initial goal.


What's going on over there? Three million and it's the apocalypse, four million and it's the land of milk and honey.

So far there's just too much overlap inbetween console cycles, so the only big game on launch for the PS4 is Killzone. It will be interesting to see how the gameplay compares between generations, like in AC4 for instance.

On a side note, thanks to your unbridled cyniscism I'm not sure I'll ever get to Kinect curb stomp somebody in Gears of War 7. Is this the world you wanted?

Imo, it's good for some mindless fun but it is underwhelming overall. Particularly in the story/writing department.

I disagree, I think the religious Crusade Dark Age element was a great update to the boiler plate Dracula is magic endless resurrection crap that was going on in the 2D games. SoTN is an amazing game but it really has no story to speak of.

In Lord of Shadows, I liked the Tolkeinesque idea of the changing of Eras. Before there had been a society that made the Colossi, and maybe before that was the age of magic that Pan was from. The current Era was the Crusaders trying to fight the plague (in this case monsters, not disease). The game ends in a different era entirely (Modern).

The end game boss is the culmination of the fears of the current era, but in getting there you journey through all the wreckage of days past.

.....I got bf3 for so cheap, I have every reason to believe I can do the same with BF4 if I am patient. I have no desire to sink a couple hundred hours into the next iteration so quickly....

Trying to skip this and Ghosts.

Yeah, sheesh, stuff drops so fast I don't even have time to get worked up about it. It's like, fuck, I would buy stuff at 30 or $40 occasionally if it wasn't itinerating every year and the old one drops to $5. The math's too clear on that one.

Case in point, fully prepared to drop 60 for GTA

Who the hell likes to drive? Maybe its because I've always been in a big city but it's a massive chore.

Lots of cars come with semi-manual now too (sportshift or shifttronic or whatever) if you want a little more control. Although, it seems like they remove the overdrive when you're in that mode. There is also shift and rev limiters so you can't do anything too weird or shift too early.

With all this fighting game news lately, it must be a sign that ArkSys is going to look at the PC and we'll get a nice PC version of BlazBlue: Chronophantasma, right?

...right? Someone lie to me that this is sound logic.

The wheel of fate is turning...

Oh gosh. I haven't payed $60 for a game in a long time but that GTA V interview has me reaching for the wallet reflexively.

It also made me think of all that time I've spent in GTA games...good or bad, its a serious cornerstone of my experience.

I hope the PS4 controller follows suit this generation. I finally got used to DS tools but its not an ideal solution. Also, I always have to guess which button I should be pressing.

People are over romanticizing a certain death in most of the cases.

I don't know if it's certain death, but it will probably be beyond uncomfortable. Most likely we'll be sending refugee supplies every year to keep them alive.

News Comments > Grand Theft Auto Online Trailer and Previews Thursday

GTA San Andreas had some difficulty spikes, like that godawful RC mission (the trick is the land the plane and wait for the cars to get close, if you don't want to memorize attack patterns) and the biplane training. I don't think it was much harder over all than GTA IV though, I replayed that stupid last mission in IV about 10 times (which probably took like 4 hours total because of the driving sequence).

Anyway, minor flaws, still excited for a new GTA. Hometown bonus also.

Whew, close one guys. Almost thought Valve was going to release a game this year.
I guess dota doesn't count no?

Well, you guys can technically say they released it this year. But people first started playing it in 2011, and it was pretty much open to anyone and PC Gamer reviewed it in 2012.

Also, and this is just my personal bias, since I first played dota in WC3 I'm not as impressed with it, it just seems like its been around forever.

Amatriain: We know what you played, searched for, or rated, as well as the time, date, and device. We even track user interactions such as browsing or scrolling behavior. All that data is fed into several algorithms, each optimized for a different purpose.

That's nice. I never watch any of the recommended films so nuts to that. I crawl the newly added and put stuff in my list then watch from that.

I do search for Michael Haneke the Dardennes bros. every month though, hopefully they'll get the hint.

Asymmetric battle sounds kind of cool though. 3 teams? One of my favorite Team Fortress Classic maps was some bloodball(i think), with 4 teams duking it out for control of the ball. It was crazy chaos and the fronts shifted constantly. Wouldn't mind seeing someone try it again.

And honestly it sounds like with the grindy gameplay of the first two Dead Islands they were just warming up for a F2P effort anyway.
