Yeah I really enjoyed the creepy, oppressive atmosphere that both seemed to ooze. Ben Affleck was terribly miscast but the rest of it was pretty decent I thought. I also enjoyed Event Horizon but most people seem to hate it

In today's climate of instant media coverage, and mega corporation media ownership why are you people surprised? This shit is worldwide, you can run from it but you can't hide. People are trading their freedoms for security and they are doing it willingly. It doesn't matter that the security threat is overblown way over proportion, most people are living in a fantasy world anyway. Just turn on the tv and see the endless procession of 'reality' TV fantasy and MTV soft porn. We are decaying as a culture, we are devolving as species. We are fucked.

Whoa, whoa, whoa guys. Hold up. What happened to Gearbox being munnie grubbing bastards, and Randy Pitchfork being Satan Incarnate? Besides CJ, where are all the other haters?

My dislike of Randy Pitchford's big mouth is only matched by my love for the Homeworld franchise. Common ground you might say

I understand that people are mad at Peter, but I think calling him a "liar" is inaccurate. That implies a deceptive intent from that start, that he said all those things knowing he'd never deliver. I've never found that to be the case with him. He believes his own grandiose BS. He's an ideas guy that has no ability in his brain to conceptualize the scope of what he wants to do, and then he runs his mouth. Nothing is impossible until it's actually impossible. That's why he absolutely needs an equal with sharp business acumen to reign him in. Unfortunately, he has become so successful that he's gone full Lucas and no one can tell him what to do.

I'm not sure I would separate deception from belief, you can certainly still deceive people while believing something. He's not a modern Uri Geller or something but there is some really dubious shit in the back and forth about the Godus KS. Maybe in the past I would agree because I always thought of him as a marketing guy who made the wrong career choices but the Godus KS is the first time I've thought "ok thats bullshit". Specifically regarding project deadlines, some of the design goals, the on/off comments about a publisher and failed delivery of most KS rewards. That's without going into the switched focus of development (mobile vs PC) and some of the other rumor mill stuff that has come from both current and ex employees.

It's unhealthy and unfair for people to expect honesty from developers? Well ok then Tim, not sure I would've gone with that but uh good luck.

Rough treatment? LOL. Some much deserved bad press after decades of bullshit is rough treatment? People really are softies these days.

"They hurt his feelings!" oh geez I'm crying over here, lifes so unfair!

"I am not saying developers like Peter and I [sic] shouldn't be responsible and shouldn't be accountable to deadlines,"

You're just saying that no one should be able to criticize them for it, yeah that's so much better.

The Surface Pro is actually more akin to an Ultrabook without an attached keyboard.

I've set up a Pro 2 and Pro 3 for work. They're both good machines, but the Pro 3 really nailed it with the 4:3 screen. Much more natural in tablet mode that way. Very slick design, and the keyboard cover is actually really useful.

Do they still make you pay more for the keyboard cover? That always really put me off. The thing is way too much as it is.

Well, my xbox one just sits collecting dust, I've played a total of 10 minutes of Ryse on it before never touching it again. I made the mistake thinking that xbone would actually have exclusive titles for it within the first year that I actually wanted to play. (impulse buy, didn't look into it before hand.)

Haha yeah for sure. I'm never doing the console launch thing again either. I waited like 3-4 years for the 360 and by the time I got to it there was a ton of stuff out. I should've done the same with the PS4. I've found a few gems like Infamous SS but for the most part its just waiting for both third and first parties to finish making stuff. Hopefully Bloodborne doesn't disappoint.

True gamers own all systems and play the games they want to on them. Like for instance, I'm playing destiny with my xim4 adapter on my PS4.

I don't know what a "true gamer" is but this gamer barely has enough time for one platform, let alone 5

I haven't seen anything that made me want to own an Xbox, Vita or etc which doesn't help.

Ouch 65 Metacritic. Yeah I'm kinda getting "done" with consoles. Too many great games on the PC and the odd time I need a console fix I turn on the 3DS since I can always stop on a dime with it when family shit comes up. It's really annoying that Sony still hasn't implemented the supposed launch feature of instant on resume for games from standby.

It's like that time a friend and I got invited to a test screening of a movie. It was free, so we were like "Cool. let's go." Then I realized... "Wait... isn't this movie coming out Tomorrow??" It was. They were literally getting a test audience reaction the day before the release date. That movie? "Phantoms".

Affleck was the bomb in Phantoms.

You can't possibly understand how much funnier that line was given our experience with that test screening.

The book for Phantoms was pretty good at least

Ok well it was ok.

Alright it sucked, wheres my beer.

I think it is always best to wait an not preorder. Are the preorder incentives really that great?

Some GTA Online cash, meh. I'd rather earn it legit anyway.

Only on bluesnews are MOBA considered 'easy mode' games.

No you're just stupid, MOBA's are RTS games where unit production is ENTIRELY handled by the computer (aka it is the equivalent of "unit assist for RTS games"). Then they give you the single RTS hero to control with a highly scripted set of items to buy which are highly babied and chosen by mostly incompetent developers of league of legends for 'balance' reasons.

MOBA's are RTS for retards. Starcraft 1 blows any MOBA out of the water in terms of depth and complexity. The whole term MOBA is actually a term that was coined by the non-RTS generation console/steam gaming crowd that didn't grow up on Warcraft 2 Via kali/kahn and battle.net diablo/Warcraft 3.

The entire term is bullshit since both league of legends and DOTA 2 are just warcraft/starcraft mods with higher resolution models.

They are a cut-down simplified version of a real time strategy game. DOTA 2 while slightly more complex is still not as complex as a real RTS. So they are RTS for newbs whether you like it or not. They are the real time strategy game equivalent of bejeweled.

Ironically you sound like the average MOBA player I run into, full of insults and silliness. It's interesting that you are so insecure about this that you feel the need to lash out constantly at people who play them. Could it just be that you're really awful at MOBA games and are trying to make yourself feel better about it? It's ok, MOBAs are really hard to master and you shouldn't feel ashamed of it.

MOBAs are not RTS games, they were born out of that genre but are not directly comparable. The complexities involved are far different but they are there nonetheless.

He's too emotionally involved for asking Peter questions that make him uncomfortable?

Have you guys ever watched an actual interview with Peter Molyneux? He is a snake charmer with words. You have to use pretty clear and definitive questions/language to pin him down. This was pretty much necessary to getting any actual answers for fans who have been burned and even then you'll notice every time he takes responsibility for something its with a caveat.

I have a hard time reading the audio transcript and seeing where Walker was letting bias or personal feelings influence him. Pretty much everything was related to things Peter has done or said publicly. What's the problem here? I don't like RPS but they got this one right.

The masses don't have the reflexes for more complex RTS games like Starcraft. That's why MOBA's took off. MOBA's cater to the reflex retards and that's the majority of PC and console gamers sadly.

Games like Descent, Doom 2, Quake 3, Unreal 2004. Those are all high speed, high reflex, highly demanding on intelligence and reflexes to process that incoming visual information and make sense of it quickly.

The vast majority of humanity simply can't do that.

Nah this is just bullshit trolling by someone who obviously hasn't spent a lot of time with them. You act like everyone who plays MOBA games makes a conscious choice not to play RTS games and that's just flawed logic, the "retard" comment just speaks to your maturity level. I love RTS games and I like MOBAs, they are very different in how they play and what kind of enjoyment I get from them. One of the biggest reasons MOBAs took off is their business model by the way and it's no surprise their largest audiences are often in emerging gaming markets.

Game length matters, if I'm paying $60 premium for a game it better give me hours of enjoyment. The whole point of considering game length is because people work hard for their money. They aren't rich. Maybe you have the luxury of throwing away money but most of the world doesn't.

Or maybe people just value things differently. Some people prefer multiplayer, some prefer a scripted single player campaign. There is really no call for being such a jerk about it.

There are games/genres I expect a lot of time out of and others where I feel like they overstay their welcome if they go on too long for the sake of inflating the so called value proposition.

I have no idea how long this game is but I'm going to wait for an actual review rather than just a random Youtube video to find out.

I actually appreciate his focus on the negatives because lord knows I get enough favorable marketing shit from publishers, previews and fanboys already. The entertainment value is pretty funny too. You definitely have to be in the mood for his videos though and sometimes he just rants way too long but whatever, click on a different video from someone else then.
