The game isn't even out yet, I'm not going to judge how its used until I see how its handled in the proper context. I don't think they have to be sensitive to anyone or anything either, marketing is often controversial and I don't think this is crossing any lines.

This marketing spin AMD has been doing with "great for 4K gaming!!!" is pretty retarded. The 390X is not suited for 4K and the added 4GB of vram is essentially useless since the card doesn't have the muscle anyway, you need a dual card solution at that point.
That crap AMD pulled with KitGuru was disappointing to read about too. They basically yanked his review sample because of "negative coverage of the 300 series". How is he supposed to cover another set of rebadged cards? It is what it is. That's some shit I would expect from Nvidia.

The Fury X is the only compelling card in the line up and even then why do I want a video card that barely competes with a 980 Ti, is priced similarly and needs a rad mount?

Statistically obesity is very closely linked with poverty in developed countries (and even in a lot of undeveloped ones). The problem is, as many have already hinted at, once again, money.

Cheap food + Culture of Self-Indulgence = Fat Fucks.

America will eat itself to death, long before it gets swallowed up by the Ruskies, or some Imaginary Communists, or those pesky Brown People from the Desert.

You are your own worst enemies. (Not that this is strictly related to just nutritional problems. Also I don't want to be hypocritical, this goes for my country too, and probably 90% of so called western 'democracies'.)

Euros aren't getting any skinnier man

I think America will be just fine, health education is starting to penetrate more thanks to the internet. These things just take time, after 30 years of super sized meals and drinking pop like water you don't just flip a switch for a nation. There's a reason companies like McDonalds keep declining, people are seeking healthier choices.

Looks like still has the same problems as HR, like giving XP for every little thing you do. You get 10-20xp for each enemy you KO/kill, but if you ghost past them presumably you get nothing. Not surprising, since their definition of ghosting is KOing every enemy.

And the hacking minigame is back, so I guess half of all the augs will be devoted to that again.

I still enjoyed DX:HR despite those small problems so meh. When it comes to this style of game I'll take what I can get and what I got from HR was a lot of enjoyment.

Shadow of the Colossus was pretty awesome at the time, not sure how well TLG will hold up though considering its like 6 years overdue.

Apparently no paid mods planned either which is a good sign.

My girlfriends mother is a vet who sometimes gets called out by the county to look at stuff like that when they get trapped animals and etc. I texted her the pic and she said its probably a tumor, apparently there is a lot of fibromatosis in animals in the wild.

Right below that he says:

Howard went on to stress that, while much of Fallout 4's world is bright and colorful, a section of the Fallout 4 map--where the bomb fell--will be a dark and dreary place, as you might expect.

I think he's just talking about having more environmental variety instead of endless mountains of grey/brown drabness which is fine by me. A lot of those limitations were resource related anyway and its a bigger setting this time so it makes sense. The world is a colorful place and there's no reason it can't continue to be that even in a post apocalyptic setting.

So long as they don't overdo it I don't see a problem. New Vegas wasn't really hurt by it.

Fallout 3 had great exploration, if you're content making up your own goals and finding cool stuff in the world then its a great game for that. A little settlement with a hysterical despot that has amusing resolutions. A random library has a unique gun laying around on a corpse with some history attached. An alien landing site. Just cool, random stuff that makes the world fun to explore and the RP a bit more interesting. If you're more story driven and want direction New Vegas is a better game for that, though you can also go off the beaten path there too.

Skyrim was weird, I really enjoyed some aspects of it and hated others. The repetitive radiant AI stuff sucked but the game had a lot of cool little sidequests and other stuff. I was disappointed in the quality of the guild quests, I felt they were better done in Oblivion. The storyline was pretty mediocre too but I did end up finishing it, you can burn through it surprisingly fast. I did find some mods helped me along the way in terms of enjoyment but YMMV, some people get too sidetracked by them.

The $150 controller doesn't even come with a wireless dongle for PC or a play n charge kit, you still have to put AA batteries in it. Continuing the fine tradition of overpriced Microsoft peripherals.

Ignoring the troll spam, the industry gets away with it because console users tend to buoy the market and their buying standards are pretty low plus they're locked in without many options on their platforms. There are other factors and reasons behind it but if primarily left to the PC gaming market, publishers would've had to take different approaches to make money in the face of rising costs and a relatively static product price point. Valve figured this out, EA still has not. They're getting better but still not there yet.

Also the PC gaming show sucked because AMD was the main sponsor and didn't put a lot of money into it. Nvidia wanted to do a lot but was prevented from doing anything due to the contract with the expo.

Ok so I read an article on Polygon that says the game is actually pretty decent and they're going to start opening up more about its various gameplay aspects. A step in the right direction.

So what happened to PS4 doing the Gaikai thing?

It works really well, it just turns out no one seems to give a shit about playing a lot of older games once the system has a library. Also their pricing model is kinda meh.

The Ultimate Edition doesn't include the other games? It's just a fucking resolution update for the original game? Get the fuck out of here!

The Xbox One BC is limited to 100 first party games, less than a dozen right now. I doubt publishers will embrace it with open arms either. It's a victory in the press release war more than anything else, a nice feather in the cap but not really going to make much real impact.

If this was around launch I would care but both systems have plenty to play now so whatever.
