News Comments > Ken Levine's Sci-Fi PC Game Plans

Ken does interesting stories but the games themselves have been coming up short for awhile now. I would really want an emphasis on improved combat systems before narrative this time.

Yeah I'm with Quboid, people know what they're doing here and there's a reason those keys are so much cheaper than legit sources. Ubisoft could've handled it differently but they don't seem to give a shit about their PR anyway.

That plea deal doesn't seem unreasonable to me either. I think he would have been fired if he hadn't resigned first but I don't know. He certainly would have deserved it, he has no place in law enforcement.

Yeah exactly. With a felony record there's no way hes getting a job in law enforcement again and the women probably has a good shot at a civil suit because this is America and why not.

Some idiot on a news site I was reading was talking about how he should be in prison for 10 years for "raping her", people are so melodramatic.

He stole some pics from a phone, he didn't beat her or something. He got a suspended sentence, has to embarrass himself publicly admitting to it in some seminar, lost his job and is now probably tarnished in that field for life. I think that's pretty appropriate punishment for the crime, sheesh. Lots of things get factored into sentencing and plea agreements like public service, any past criminal activities (or lack thereof) and so on.

Takes time to build a franchise over here. I saw a lot of interest in it after the PS+ promotion though and I think they could make a go of it.

I'm not sure Pratt is right for the role, the Jones character was more balanced toward playing it straight with wise cracks once in awhile and Pratt seems too goofy.

Strange to not see oodles of reviews for Dying Light unless they have a shady embargo where they can't put their review out until after its release? Steam user reviews are consistently positive but I don't trust them when they only have a handful of hours played.

Maybe Techland put on the embargo for an inevitable day one or two patch? I don't know, seems counterproductive for a game which is shaping up to be a great title if those awards and, user reviews, and review excerpts are anything to go by...

They didn't embargo, they just didn't send out review codes until like 12 hours ago...so basically the same thing.

I hear mixed things about the game so I'm just gonna wait til the dust settles.

Sources tell Joystiq that the staff is aware of the closure, but corporate hasn't officially told them, so they are unable to acknowledge anything out of concern that it will cause immediate shutdown. We've reached out for more information. We will update, as we always have, when we know more.

Gotta give it to them for having a sense of humor about it.

Yeah we barely got touched too. What I find amusing with weather reporting nowadays is how much it mimics news reporting in sensationalism. If there's a gust here it's a blaring WIND WARNING IN EFFECT bolded font size 30 red text. We get warnings for everything now to the point where I just sort of roll my eyes at it. I don't need a warning for rain guys, just tell me if its going to cause flooding or not. I get that weather systems aren't static and I try to give them some margin of error but they get out of hand.

Yeah Prez, same sort of deal.

Companies like GMG get their keys directly from the publishers. G2A/Kinguin/etc get their keys from other regions, stolen box copies, etc. There's a reason those sites try to tout a "buyer protection" type program.

I just get my games from Steam/GMG and I've never had any issues getting them cheap when I feel like it. If they're not at the price I want I just wait a bit longer. I'm in no hurry

Mountain out of a molehill. The 970 is still an amazing card and the bottleneck scenarios here are pretty remote for most users. I won't be returning my 970.
