Man that would be cool. Wait. Hey! I actually liked Alien3. I guess I am alone on this planet in thinking it was a great film that put one of my favorite directors on the map.

I liked the unofficial Fincher cut, but even still, killing Hicks and Newt right off the bat (Newt being Ripley's driving focus for most of the second movie) was extremely low.


The Fincher cut had a better structure but was still very ponderous and weird. Alien 3 isn't an awful movie by any stretch of the imagination but it feels really out of place with the rest of the franchise.

I'm not sure if Fincher got his start from it or not but Seven and Fight Club were what made me a fan of his.

It is odd that you see jabs (friendly or otherwise) towards consoles when I don't recall console folks shitting on the pc folks.

There just aren't a lot of console only people around here. Spend some time on other forums and you'll see console people shitting on the PC all the time.

Sorry, but this game is probably going to be a goddamned disaster at launch and will probably be half-assed patched for a short bit and then abandoned.


Yep. I'm going to laugh when all the idiots who blindly preordered this get burned and start sputtering out excuses for why it's not so bad.

So wait a minute. If it's a good port are you going to come here and take your licks like a man?

I haven't preordered so I don't care either way but it seems only fair making a comment like that there should be some stakes.

I've always just used a modmic + my regular headphones. The gaming headsets always seem to have mediocre sound (to my ears anyway) and tend to break after a few years. The modmic guy needs to be better about keeping stuff in stock though, a few times I've referred people to him and he hasn't had anything available for weeks.

Does anyone know if the XBone could support hardware upgrades? Seems to me like with the API you could sell an upgraded Xbone or an upgrade kit with out changing out the primary SoC that's already being sold. Shift the costs of upgraded games to devs, who need to code the support into the game, who can then turn around and charge $80.00 for the HD version.

It can't support any real upgrades outside of storage. They would need a whole new hardware revision for a new SoC. Hardware upgrades on consoles defeats the whole purpose of a stable hardware platform anyway, no one has really done it with notable success.

As a gay guy I have to say the ones in Far Cry 3 were pretty impressive.

As a straight guy I find most breasts pretty impressive.

Yeah I think they could do something with it for sure, I've always like vampire themed RPGs but it sounds like Square's bullshit expectations will keep this from seeing the light of day.

I'm really enjoying this game, innovative or not. And somehow I seem to have been spared any major bugs.

Soooooooo, gonna upgrade to Apoc Edition?

No way. I re-mortgaged my house to invest in Star Citizen.

Hahaha well played sir.

Um no Vern. Cheap upper management refusing to pony up the dough for real security is literally always the problem.

Having actually worked IT in my life, I will be the first to fault management where appropriate and for always cutting IT when profits dip. That said, its not 'literally always the problem', there are plenty of dysfunctional IT departments that are their own worst enemy and a big part of the job is doing well within budget constraints.

Target Canada didn't die because their management gutted IT either.

Doesn't matter to me when it's released, I'll check the reviews/forums/comments to see if it's a shit port and if it is I won't buy it.

Yep exactly, same here. I could care less about getting some GTA Online money, if it's a good port then its a guarantee I'll just earn it legit.

Who cares, except those who find her opinion inconvenient?

Wow, we have zero common ground on this topic if you don't think she should even have to do the necessary research about the things shes complaining about in the first place. I can't believe you posted that.

I'm going to click on a happy thread and forget I even bothered with this one haha.

Never played it on console or watched any videos on youtube just about aside from trailers.

They can take as long as they like for all I care. Looking forward to it but I got plenty to stay busy while I wait

Haha wow I'll say, how do you play that many games at once? I'm struggling to play 2-3 consistently. Or is that just whatevers still installed in Steam at the moment?

I'm struggling to even recall who Brianna Wu is, refresh my memory. Something a bit more objective than breitbart. Is the wikipedia entry on her correct? I am really not understanding why either side really cares what she has to say.

The cherry-picking accusation is unfair.

Haha whatever, it's totally fair. I'm not even convinced she actually plays the games herself. I watched one of her videos about Dying Light, a game I've played to completion and she talks about a trope in the game that was completely false and the writers went on to subvert the very trope she was bitching about. Anyone who played it would've immediately understood. It was absolutely cherry picking, a "trope" on the surface that was actually a subversion. It struck me as something that she got from one of her little groupies and decided to run with. She's in it for the money and recognition and all of the apologism surrounding her is only slightly less distasteful to me than the hardcore gamergate people.

Anyways whatever, I'm tired of discussing her. Sleazy as hell.

What the fuck is this "GamerGate" nonsense and why the hell should I give a fuck about any of these people?

Some idiot named Sarsleezian wants money and fame so shes cherry picking tropes in video games because <supposedly legit reasons that are in fact bullshit>. Some people are super duper angry at her so they made a dumb hashtag and then they had all had stupid twitter/4chan wars until everyone got tired of it and told both sides to shut the fuck up. Now it creeps up in the press every few weeks for some silly reason.

There's a bunch of other dumb stuff that came before it (Zoe Quinn, the press being retarded etc) but that's the tl;dr of these days.

I dont get how CS:GO stays up there that long. Im getting the feeling its because of banned hackers that are buying a new one twice a week...

It's just very popular. Low barrier of entry, lots of community additions to the game and its an FPS. Not much else to it.

So were many other FPS games. They didnt stay on top for 3 years, not even close.
The only similar inflation Ive seen in an FPS was on Americas Army. And we all know it was a cheaterfest, you couldnt find a single server without a cheater.

In addition Counter-Strike has a built in player base and a lot of free marketing from Steam. I don't know, doesn't seem like much of a puzzle to me I guess.
