I have to say that the world cup games in general are infinitely more entertaining this go than last, higher scores and lots of great plays. Soccer was always a sport I enjoyed playing more than watching but I'm really into it this time.

I liked Far Cry and Crysis was ok but these guys branched off into weird directions with future games. Bizarre storylines, odd games (A Kinect exclusive really?) and a lot of rapid expansion in terms of satellite studios which is a classic management mistake in the gaming industry.

I would really like to be optimistic about these things but Microsofts commitment to their own platform is just a string of broken promises and missed opportunities. They should have been Steam and instead are now neglecting their own platform entirely.

Why not just give the PC those few extra options and pieces of eye candy? They do it for their other games. Maybe they just don't sell enough PC copies to make it worth it, but then just say that. Don't try to hide it behind this fable that the failbox can run everything a PC can.

It's just marketing fluff to assuage their sales base. The PC version will definitely have extra options and visual detail. It's not even a concern IMO, Ubi has been doing much better in the port department.

Whatever happened to all the posts proclaiming TitanFall as the greatest FPS ever created? Anecdotal, yes, but I don't know a single person that is still playing more than a match or two a week.

A month is pretty good for $50-60 IMO. I know several posters who enjoyed it and moved on until they add more later. As long people got their moneys worth then who cares how long its played? I don't want to play games in perpetuity either, it encourages lazy and repetitive design.

It wasn't my cup of tea but I think it was a solid enough first entry in a franchise that just needs more fleshing out.

I saw a number of old BF4 build bugs in the Hardline beta which was really disconcerting. I'd like to believe Wilson but history with EA isn't encouraging.

Far Cry 3 was pretty good but not great, definitely worth a shot though. That said this sounds like PR wank to keep the masses happy, I don't doubt the PC version will have the best visuals.

Yeah but if they open this open to all of the games on origin... Would beat out select free weekends on steam.
They are playing catch up with Steam.
It's okay I guess. I doubt I will buy Titanfall anyways. Not into these twitch shooters anymore.

Yep its pretty much catch up with Steam but that's fine with me, Origin keeps improving. Now if they would do something about the bizarrely designed client.

News Comments > XCOM: Enemy Unknown for Linux Released
3. Re: XCOM: Enemy Unknown for Linux Released Jun 19, 2014, 15:07 Verno
 
Some people say the same thing about consoles and the PC being a second class citizen. Progress is progress man, the gaming scene on Linux essentially didn't exist 5 years ago. It's come a long way in a pretty reasonable amount of time. I don't really see these mythical Linux braggers here crowing about it either, just you

It undoubtedly has a long way to go but its getting better all the time. If you want to stick with Windows then hey, I don't see anyone telling you to do otherwise

If you don't already own Divinity: Original Sin, that's an absolute no-brainer purchase - jump on it.

Has that come out yet? I thought it was still in development.

It's early access still. I'm waiting til it comes out, I swore off all early access and Kickstarter stuff no matter the pedigree of the devs. Hopefully it'll be great as expected but I don't mind waiting and paying an extra little bit of money.

I'm tempted to pick up XCOM:EW, but only if the game has XCOM been fixed. I haven't noticed any patches since I bought it, except the patch that added support for EW. I quit playing the game because it got too buggy. I was pretty far into the game, then all of the sudden the hit percentage indicators stopped working. No matter what the situation, the hit percentage only showed 1% or 99%.

I had to rage quit XCOM a while back. My soldier was 1 tile away from an alien. He stood up, fired 3 rounds from his assault rifle, point blank. Missed. Alien counters, shoots my soldier, who panics, pulls out his pistol, fires across the map and hits my sniper who was in cover, probably 70 feet away. Gets him right between the eyes. Dead.

XCOM can be really frustrating but its also super rewarding when you pull off some insane stuff with squad sight/In the Zone or Double Tap. It's really fun having a game with actual stakes too, I lost several soldiers during my games and it was like a gut punch. Also made the eventual victories that much more satisfying. It's not perfect but man XCOM was great. I think I will load it up later, its been awhile!

Far Cry 3 is a pretty good romp for $7.50 though I think I've seen it for a fiver somewhere before.

I think we can all agree Redskins is pretty dumb and there are many better team names they could go with to represent Washington. Maybe the Washington Conmen.

That South Park price seems high for a sale price, $40 is meh. Far Cry 3 for $7.50 is solid though, fun game.

Did 7 Days to Die ever shape up or is it still really rough?

The mayor retaliated against someone who disagreed with him. That would be my gripe...

With a bag of dog poop on a lawn. He didn't send in the police or get his land rezoned.

Stuff like that makes me appreciate my neighbors though, we just get together and hash things out over a drink. Sometimes we don't agree but we compromise like adults instead of the childish shit I see other people getting into.
