GS calls it "easy short and shallow:"

The game was repeatedly delayed and endlessly pre-sold at full price.

Most seem to like it (pulled from a post elsewhere):

IGN - 9/10
Polygon - 8.5/10

Pretty ballsy step. I can't see any way that it wouldn't backfire on them. Why would people buy that?

Yeah, I made myself feel like a complete idiot for about 30 minutes trying t o figure out how to share a Madden highlight. Gave up. I "accidentally" recorded something, and I have a bunch of screencaps I don't remember taking, but I still haven't exactly figured out how to properly implement the share button....despite the fact that it seems like it should be pretty straightforward.

Word is it's buggy, and needs to be fixed. It sometimes gets the last 15 minutes, and other times displays something totally different.

Still think it was ALL about the loot?

Yes, I do. That's why you keep playing, to get the next shiny thing.

Except when you realize that there they have fundamentally changed nothing, NOTHING with the expansion.

Did you read the patch notes?


They have tried to make the game more replayable, but they have failed to realise its not about the LOOT (or at least not SOLELY about the loot) but more about the characters and their specific builds.

Wildly disagree with that. To me, the game was always about loot. Like, totally.

"Microsoft Windows 8 not getting boost from end of XP support. "
Wasn't the XP expiry pushed out by another year?

Think it was just virus support?

I'm excited, but reviews say it's Obsidian buggy. Won't crack it open just yet (though soon!), and if need be, I can send it back to amazon.

I'd say the story of Corvo doesn't need a sequel (But I'm sure you could do one) but the universe they created has plenty of other tales that could be told.

Exactly. The whole spirit realm and who the guy was was never explained, right? unless it was in the DLC I missed?

I always thought it would be ultra cool for Neo to wake up after he "died" in the third one and realize that the reality being sold to them was actually still the Matrix.

The stupid thing is, this is what they implicitly implied when Neo suddenly gets the power to stop the squid things at the end of Matrix II while he's outside the Matrix. I was utterly convinced that that, combined with the Architect's speech, just meant that while everyone in Zion thought they were out of the Matrix, they were just in sort of a DMZ, kept away from the docile sheep in the rest of the system.

If you all haven't seen it, I highly recommend the movie The Thirteenth Floor. As well as Dark City (bonus: directors cut!), filmed around the same time as the first matrix, and I believe used some of the same sets, hence they look similar.

It's just past 03:00 GMT. No word yet, but World War 3 might have just started in the Crimea. It's been fun guys.

Yeah! And everyone was like "We'll just wait and play GTA 5 on the pc, it'll be better!". Well guess what?! I played the whole game, and now you all don't get squat!

I picked this game up off of Amazon for about $7.99 a while back, but it's still sitting on my shelf and on my long list of games to install/play. I recall some posters here at Blue's News saying it was actually a decent game, but wasn't marketed/handled too well by Activision, which is pretty much in line with this news post.


Yeah, with it's delay, marketing came and went before the game was out...

I really didn't like Singularity at first, for some of the reasons they outlined: If felt like it borrowed way too liberally for various other games.

Yet there was something about the story, specifically the ending and your character seemingly being unable to change his fate, that stuck with me. And it's grown on me with replays...

If you've not played it and can catch it for under $10, check it out.

You guys are fucking idiots. Every fucking day every single topic endless reams of ignorant mindless shit talking.

If you are going to talk shit then at least take a few seconds google some information so have some fucking idea what the hell you are popping off about.


Sounds like you're speaking of yourself:

<insert moronic slam that is half baked and most likely false and due to the ignorance of the poster>
