Looks more or less the same which isn't really a bad thing for me. I bought Dead Island GOTY off Steam for $6 during the holiday sale after pirating it some time ago and had a lot of fun with it in co-op with my friends.

Just no more sewer levels please. I beg you.

That voice acting is some of the worst I've heard since the earlier versions of Resident Evil. They should have got someone who has a genuinely badass voice, like Keith David instead of someone just trying to sound mean.

Also, Nin, Super Amazing Wagon Adventure looks amazing!

News Comments > Diablo III PTR Updated
10. Re: Diablo III PTR Updated Jan 23, 2013, 11:22 Wallshadows
 
Loot issues stem from the fact that there are no more attribute points to spread out the stats in a correct method to make specialized loot for each class. As it is now, each piece of gear is balanced around mountains of random modifiers which can, in most cases, be open rolls for each primary stat so it can be worn by all classes depending on the roll. Some pieces rely on up to six random modifiers and from those six modifiers, there are dozens of potential combinations which often produce absolute garbage. Diablo 2 had the same system, but it feels like they've overburdened the system.

So, as mentioned earlier, either provide some kind of class-requirement items with proper stats and maintain random ranges or consolidate some of the existing stats to make the overall item quality less /facedesk.

I still have the PC Gamer issue that has an article which features 'the next game gods' Cliff, Ken Levine, American McGee as well as others.

Actually, this is a snippet I've found since I don't have a scanner.

From that article with Cliff:

I find it very disturbing going from the PC to the console and to have to be Sony's bitch; to have to have Sony approve the things that we do. It's upsetting for me to submit it for their approval.

News Comments > PC Resident Evil Revelations Plans
1. Re: PC Resident Evil Revelations Plans Jan 22, 2013, 21:40 Wallshadows
 
Something that has always irked me about the RE series, aside from what it turned in to, is that they introduce waaaay too many minor characters who have dick all reason to be in it. I'd rather see some kind of closure for the main characters not one-shot wastes such as Carlos, Billy, and now Parker who are never heard of or mentioned again.

The only kind of closure we really have towards most characters who have not been in RE4/5/6 is in the form of bonus prologues from RE3 which is a really lousy sendoff and a lot of potential flushed down the drain.

That said, Revelations is the only RE game on my radar since CV so it's something to look forward to since I don't own a 3DS.

Keep getting an error page / 404 address when I signup which I am sure is caused by the high traffic as my friend was able to submit his info.

I'll try again later.

I'll reserve judgement until I see actual game play footage and finer details.

Derp, there already are on the site...

TES has a fairly substantial and enduring fanbase so it's likely going to sell on name above all else regardless of its quality. It's just unfortunate that we're 'blessed' with another MMO of this particular genre when we already have plenty as it is, good or bad.

Side note, been playing a Ton of Eve lately which is an incredible breath of fresh air compared to the usual suspects and in 21 days, I'll be the proud owner of an Orca providing I can cough up the 750 million ISK through mining and belt ratting.

Same thing happened to MMO-Champion several months ago. Seems like a fairly common issue if you're using ads.

News Comments > Gone Gold - Aliens: Colonial Marines
17. Re: Gone Gold - Aliens: Colonial Marines Jan 16, 2013, 17:45 Wallshadows
 
The problem I've had with the AVP games is that they're in a self-contained universe which has zero outcome. While I can certainly appreciate Rebellion and Monolith for giving us these modern AVP games (even AVP3), it never felt like there was any start or finish to the story with each new title. It always boiled down to what was essentially a copy and paste from the previous title rather than expand upon it and deliver a much larger experience to the point where the movies for AVP and AVP:R had more of a story arch than any of the AVP games.

At least with an Alien-centric experience, you can pin down its location in the story and get a sense of progression to help bridge the gap which is what CM is allegedly going to do. It'll give you the opportunity to play through events which are at least tied in to something much larger rather than play what felt like an anthology.

There's nothing wrong with AVP (with the exception of the movies), it just never felt like your actions had consequence or that any of it really mattered given the separate layout of each title. It felt more like Rebellion and Monolith were trying to see who had the biggest dick with their 'origins' vision rather than make an intricate, interconnected series.

It's up to Gearbox to fulfill their word and make CM stand on its own without the assistance of a Predator while also satisfying the Alien fans prior to Resurrection and that's a tough feat to perform.

I'm still likely going to perform a day one purchase in spite of my somewhat mixed feelings towards this title. I'm hoping that I can co-op with some of my buddies too if they decide to get it and that the co-op in general is fun.

At least enough fun to get $40 worth out of it since GMG usually has it listed for sub-$40 prices with their coupon codes...

You have the innocence of children and the impurity of a whore. It's a theological conflict of dualism between good and evil and that she may corrupt their innocence. It would be interesting to see how many members on that panel are associated with religion and used that as fuel for their decision.

Granted, it seems like a lot of kids these days are pretty fucked up as it is and don't need help.

All the ghosts in Pac-Man want to kill him unless he takes drugs and eats them first. May as well say they are racists towards yellow circle folk too.
