It's not that gamers are killing videogames, it's that us oldsters were abandoned. Many of us would like a REAL starfox 64 part 2, a much better metroid than Metroid : Other M, etc.

Yeah I agree to some extent Suppa. I buy a ton of games but the market shifted away from my tastes in several genres so I only buy what directly appeals to me. I bought a 3DS and several games for it because no one else was making those kinds of games.

I really enjoyed Blacklist so hopefully this is just routine industry stuff and not an indication of future direction on Splinter Cell.

I think the bigger problem is attracting women into a profession that demands insane hours that conflict heavily with raising a child which is a serious concern for most women at some point in their life.

Except for the exclusive 9 month female pregnancy (which still requires a lot of complementary support by the male companion), the man's job is 50% parenting, at minimum, for up to 18 years. Welcome to the year 2014.

18 years? I think you mean 30 years, welcome to the year 2014

Awesome! We have gender segregation in development.

I don't know, it seems like a good initiative considering how underrepresented women are in game development in general. I might agree if things were more fairly weighted already but they're not.

It's kind of hilarious how forward thinking Hellgate London was in some ways and how backwards it was in others.

This whole trailer seems to be aimed at the graphics concerns from the previous media they put out. Of course they should probably have an asterisk somewhere in the video that leads to *running on SLI GeForce 780s.

Well, now I feel kind of silly. What on earth made me think blues posters would have anything approaching a sense of perspective?

Seriously, if you can't understand why some people would want to make bots, and comepete against others who also have bots, you're one massively uncreative dude.

"Defending cheaters?" Are you fucking joking?

FWIW I understood what you were shooting for, I just happen to disagree

Last of Us on PS4 was a no-brainer, tons of converted Xbros who would probably pick it up after hearing all of the hype.

I think they should just outright ban them all but I guess people are too scared of legal liability these days.

Not understanding why you guys are so dead set against the game. I get that you many donít want to play it. But forming opinions about a beta that does not represent the final product is kind of strange to me.

I'm not dead set, just sort of indifferent. You've done the same thing in reverse BTW, coming to a positive conclusion based on beta play. Asking people not to evaluate a game they're playing is kind of weird. I can ignore a lot of the "beta" aspects of the game like broken quests but the core of the game itself just didn't grab me. Maybe that will change in the future but in the meantime I think I'll just pass.

I love the Tropico games, definitely looking forward to this. No clue that co-op was a mode now, it will be neat to see how they implement it.

As far as MOBAs go Smite isn't bad, I think its probably the most forgiving I've ever played and the arena mode is quite fun. It is probably the one MOBA game I would recommend to people who think MOBAs are too hard or have a large learning curve. Most of my complaints are interface related but perhaps I'm just spoiled after seeing the interface mastery in DOTA2.

I'm glad others are having a good time with it but I don't know, this just didn't grab me at all. Floaty, janky combat with most of the MMOisms I've grown to dislike. For me this doesn't capture what makes Elder Scrolls games enjoyable or really do anything to distinguish itself in any way. Anyways I'm not going to make any F2P style comments but I'll definitely be passing on this, just not my bag.

Dang, I have all the wired solutions, but was hoping for wireless that some here liked and would rave about.

If all you care about is listening to TV show dialogue or something then you can probably get by with some wireless Sennheisers. Get some RF based ones if you don't think there will be a lot of interference. Just be aware that crackling and popping can be issue with these things, particularly if you move around a bit while listening. I wouldn't count on good sound quality either, I have a pair I use for the treadmill and they're adequate but not much else.

Stay away from anything super cheap and anything IR based.
