So, it's like Borderlands without a bazillion guns?

I'd be impressed if Konami could find a way to improve upon the series when the originals still hold up fairly well. It's not exactly a genre with a lot of flexibility with the exception of graphics.

So that is what their new ace-in-the-hole graphics engine looks like? I guess when you're used to using a heavily modified quake 2 engine anything which is a step up is considered ground breaking.

Also, the 12 year olds will be too busy telling others how they had sex with their mother to notice those subtle details.

Can someone please enlighten me on how a person can be on death row for decades? Can privatized jail systems profit from such a practice or is it just to fuck around with the inmate so he doesn't get off the hook so quickly at the tax payer's expense?

Seems somewhat dubious.

Another re-imagined game where the main character has been transformed in to an angst-filled teenage emo.

Having been looking at this title for a while now but not doing much research, is the grind really that bad? Being an MMO, I would expect there to be some form of grind to unlock more tanks and upgrades or modifications but does it take that much away from the game itself?

This is bitter sweet.

On one hand, I hope they get a lot of flak from the community in general to the point where companies rethink this sort of bullshit but on the other hand I wish it wasn't Deus Ex which needs to be dragged through the mud.

Deus Ex needs a deus ex machina to get out of this mess.

I can't believe I lived my life without knowing about this sooner.

That said, I'm going to close my eyes with my wallet open and let the developers take whatever they want.

Woo-oooo.

The most embarrassing part about this is that not only one person thought this was an amazing idea, but a while department.

Okay, so it's F2P; I didn't know that.

However, I still don't support the idea of BETAs being released and us being testers.

I also don't support the idea of "changes" -- I'd prefer games be released on cartridges that never get updated. Those were the days of solid (and tested) games, that you could become familiar with and not expect changes (changing/resetting your familiarity); such an annoyance.

It's like Microsoft "changing" windows to have no Start button. "change is good" my ass; fact is, it's just annoying. So, stop it.

Are you really trying to defend your asinine post? Because you make it sound as if people are being forced at gunpoint to beta test a product in order to ensure its live release isn't a jumbled up rats nest like the early days of Half Life 2 breaking Steam or Ultima IX: Ascension.

Even Blizzard relies on outside assistance in the form of their PTR system and even they miss tons of bugs or glitches which is why they roll out hotfix after hotfix so what is a company like Grinding Gear Games going to do to even have a chance at testing their product when the end result is a F2P game and they work off donations? They go to the public who are and have been more than happy to assist especially knowing their characters won't be wiped on release.

You remind me of Uncle Rico from Napolean Dynamite.

It's a Firefox/Chrome extension which eliminated geographically restricted websites such as Hulu and also defaults Netflix to the American version for us Canucks.

No configuration required, highly recommend it.

How about Netflix stops charging the same for the Canadian version as they do for the American version since it has less than half the video library which consists mostly of Bollywood shit. The American version isn't super awesome by any means but it has enough to currently provide me with enough content to view without having to suffer through ad-riddled, 380p video websites.

All I have to say is thank fuck for the Media Hint extension or I would have shitcanned my subscription a long time ago...

I'm glad they'll go ahead with a full respec due to the changes. That shit gets hard to fix when you're deep in to Merciless mode and realize your build sucks after dumping dozens, or even hundreds of hours in to it.

I kind of felt that way about a Elemental Shadow bow build in the mid 60s but was fortunate enough to have saved a bunch of respec skills and runes to salvage what would have otherwise been a wash.

So which is the better of the two? I really don't feel like installing both, lol.

From what I recall, it's essentially the same game but re-released with very, very minor changes to the point that sites such as Metacritic recognize the two as the same title.

They shit the bed with Beat Down and thought they could pass it off with a new name and no one would notice.

News Comments > Blizzard's Unannounced MMOG Reset and Delayed?
10. Re: Blizzard's Unannounced MMOG Reset and Delayed? May 28, 2013, 20:34 Wallshadows
 
Blizzard has been going on about increased staffing for their WoW team so I figured something was up given how defensive they used to get when asked why they don't just hire more people to help develop more content at a quicker pace.

I just never would have thought it was this. What would interest me is whether this was a mutual decision between Blizzard and Activision or if one side essentially used veto powers to rebuild from the ground up and if we can expect any sort of fallout because of that.

Stay tuned!
