So when does public safety take priority over uncertainty?

The Anti-vax movement is built on the uneducated, paranoid, and doubtful types who refuse to understand the underlying issue by continuously regurgitating 'facts' which are nearly universally discredited for being bologna. We live in a golden age of information to research and yet they continue to bury their heads in the sand because they would rather listen to someone like Jenny MaCarthy and think it's some kind of conspiracy than actually educate themselves on the matter.

Instead of focusing on the handful of whackjobs doctors who encourage anti-vaccination, they need to broaden their outlook but they'll never do that because being an anti-vaxxer is to live in a sheltered world where lies are truths and big pharma is out to get you.

Aside from Hipsters, I don't think there is any sub-culture which annoys me more than Steampunk and I don't know why.

Your mileage may vary when it comes to measles but it's not something you generally want to expose those with compromised or low immune systems to. If you're lucky, it'll pass soon after a rash breaks out but the most common complication is Pneumonia and that's generally the killer. There are other less common complications which are equally bad such as Encephalitis. Ironically enough, those who are anti-vax see the vaccine as something which causes autism but Encephalitis can cause retardation.

Thanks to this movement, we're essentially throwing away 60 years of medical progress out the window because there will likely come a point where even our Herd Immunity will become compromised because of these fucking assholes who should be charged with child neglect, have child services remove their children, and force sterilization on to the parents.

My opinion of DL is a few comments down in the WAB video and I still feel mostly the same way. I actually haven't picked it back up since beating it because it means having to go through most of the mundane tedium which is a open world bogged down in really garbage sidequests and lack of reward for exploration. I would return to it in spite of having the QTE last boss fight if they released more Twins-related quests but that's it.

As I said before though, that review really shows how much of a bitch he is when it comes to being an absolute dick for no other reason than to be a dick. There's passionate and then there's just being an overbearing asshole who can dish it out but can't take it. He acts as though no other game in the industry copies certain features, makes illogical comparisons, and treats his opinion of the matter as the law of the land.

He talks shit about rabid fanboyism and yet that's the only group he positively interacts with within his comments. Everyone else who slights him in the most insignificant way gets banned.

I'm sure Blizzard has already seen to it that those who matter won't be without a job for very long, or at least tried.

Not just main characters, either. There were some heroes who had me scratching my head as to knowing who they were like Rehgar who comes from the comics and Nazeebo from...thin air...

The video looks pretty nice and it seems to be an overall decent product but does anyone have any first hand experience they would like to share since I've been meaning to pick up a decent RTS for some time now.

The best quests involved the Twins. I would love to see a follow up quest chain with them.

Is Grim Dawn even profitable if that is his intent though? He should go to POE since that had a pretty ravenous market once a season starts which probably translates to a lot of real-money transactions.

So this DLC is nothing more than a glorified quarantine zone? Bleh.

Personally, I don't really see the need to buy DLC if the game will become open to modders especially if said DLC is simply unlocking locations or new weapons.

Yeah, being Unity 4, I would imagine the most noticeable improvement would be performance since it'll support multi-core processors rather than park everything on a single core.

The Neurogen campaign is pretty fun but it feels rather...hollow given how large the rooms can be and how static the enemies are.

There's something about it which feels weird, like it's some kind of glorified flash game.

Been looking at this game for a while so great news for me to jump in and try. It's only a 1GB install but I hope it has the campaign.

So I just got Satellite TV, right, welcome to the 21st century and all that. So TWD is on and for the first time, I'm not torrenting it since I have AMC HD.

Holy fucking shit, does AMC loooooooove their commercials! Seems like there is a full cycle every four or five minutes. I'm pretty happy to continue torrenting them even if it means I have to delay gratification for a half hour because these assholes don't have a way to pile on an extra five minutes of fluff in a series of fluff to offset commercials.

Could just be the case that the game was not built in a modular fashion, thus something as small as fixing a misspelling requires a 3GB patch.

Reminds me of how patching works for Path of Exile on Steam. Oh, you need this 10MB patch? Come back in a half hour or use the standalone launcher instead.

WAB can be spot on about what he talks about but he's a bitch when it comes to taking any flack for being incredibly offensive in some of his videos. His Dying Light review, for example, is pretty over-the-top when it comes to being an asshole for the sake of being an asshole.

He can dish it out but he can't take it.

At least Titanfall got some market exposure to allow it to last as 'long' as it did post-release and looked fun. I think this game will sink about as quick as Brink if it's still hindered by past core issues which may not be resolved through patching regardless of size.

News Comments > Dying Light Mod Tool Plans
18. Re: Dying Light Mod Tool Plans Feb 7, 2015, 10:07 Wallshadows
 
I don't think there is any other game design or mechanic which removes more immersion than QTEs. Which is funny, since they're suppose to allow the player to feel more engaged with the game. All it does is take my focus away from something awesome by focusing on my keys and hoping I don't have to see the same lines of dialogue a whole bunch of times because I hit A when I should have hit W. Granted, it's not as bad as RE4 which went so far as to randomize the buttons to push or one every five minutes but one is one too many and just left me incredibly sour which also happens to be the last thing I do to give it that lasting taste.

There's no reason to have it at all, especially when no where else in the game is it requires. It felt like a giant 'Fuck you' before a terrible ending. I'm pretty stubborn about the line I draw in the sand when it comes to these 'features' and I have zero desire to buy the season pass unless the community mods in a QTE-eliminator for the present and any future implementations.
