Poor Dan Stapleton. Had his bought-and-paid-for review criticized and then had to go and whine about it.

People may not like Joe for his weird starts to his videos, but the guy does EXCELLENT reviews, and if there's shit wrong with a game, he will actually mention it. He gave Titanfall a 7/10, which seems reasonable, and said it was ridiculous that so many sites simply continued the hype, continued sucking MS cock, and gave it 9s and 10s.

I guess IGN gets all pissy when they get called out.

Yeah, I read that headline, watched the review, and read the Twitter back and forth. Sorry, but BOTH parties do not look ridiculous. Only IGN looks ridiculous for "calling out" that Joe guy for telling the truth.

But a 31 minute review. Damn. Now I know why I avoid a lot of You Tube content.

Joe is ridiculous and over the top. That's his thing...and while I'm not a big fan of his, I felt like Dan was being a total asshat over something miniscule.

I'd say Dan felt Joe cut a little too close to the truth, hence his tantrum.

And does Dan really think folks take IGN seriously? If so, he needs a serious reality check.

The campaign of the game proved to be too much for my feeble brain.

I got stuck at the mission where you need to defend an elevator. I did eventually beat it after countless tries, but by that point, I felt done with the game, especially when I kept dying in the couple of missions that I played afterward.

...and the mission was fairly early in the campaign, too.



But even though it's way too hard for me, I can't deny that it's a brilliant game... but it helps to be a brilliant person, too

I eventually gave up on it as well. I think I posted something on their FB page (about potentially an easier difficulty) and was basically told perhaps I should play a different game. Never went back, after that.

Microsoft is still pushing the 'sold to retailers' numbers instead of sold to customers like Sony.

yup its sold to stores not to customers, so <5m xbone vs >7m ps4

ps: Nin, not keeping up with the Ps4 firmwares, but is it possible to stream to the ps4 yet, I do that lot with ps3.


I don't believe so, but I'm not positive. They seem to be listening to folks (the next firmware is going to allow saving/exporting video to USB drives/devices, so we're not stuck with bookface) so I would encourage you to keep banging that drum and let them know.

The Half Elf wrote on Apr 17, 2014, 21:09:
On my recent stint with no internet I finished Bioshock Infinite and honestly had some major gripes with it.

In Bioshock the story was all there along the main quest line. Audio recordings filled in some back story. In Infinite, I really hated how Booker would just 'forget' having his kid stolen and never remember any of it, and that if you wanted the story you really needed to hunt down the voxaphones. Or any real lack of explanation why Booker and Comstock were in the same universe together. (Been watching alot of Fringe Lately).

If you're not played Burial At Sea yet, it ties things back into Rapture rather nicely. And a rather fitting goodbye to the folks at Irrational, and what they created.

Pretty interesting read. While the Bioshock series wasn't perfect, it's certainly one of the most memorable settings in recent years. I'll forever have a soft spot in my heart for Rapture.

Yeah, yeah, I know. It was a typo. I had just woke up. IRregardless - while known to older players it doesn't mean anything to most younger gamers. Otherwise it's a rather large waste of money unless whatever those other assets are are pretty sweet.

You can use the same line tomorrow, and we'll have a second Groundhog Day.

edit:
I have no idea what "maundy" means.

I'd be curious what that is as well.

Considering they hit 6 million last month, that's pretty decent. I'm sure Infamous helped...

And I'll be happy to take a TLoU discount, as I wasn't expecting to get one...

Happy Good Friday to all who are celebrating. Though actually, most people I know celebrate most Fridays as being pretty good, so we probably have this pretty well covered.


Whaaaa? Guess it's not just me wishing...

I got this email and then almost immediately got a notice about a password change request.

At any rate, the old password worked to login, and it's changed now.

I think I can take blame for some of that percentage (damn you steam sales). However I've put a nip in that habit...mostly...by stopping before I hit buy and asking myself to mentally picture when I'll actually get around to playing it.

I blame Prez. I mean, he owns the entire catalog, right?
