BSG was always kinda all over the place though, you would go through a few great episodes then find something like Black Market lurking around the corner.

I agree that the last season kinda went off the rails but with all of the plot resolution needed it was almost understandable. I actually didn't even mind the ending, there have been much worse offenders (Lost).

I had to decompile the executable just to edit the stupidly long skill use times. Then after an hour of doing that I found out someone else had already done it first

Kudos to Microsoft, that's unexpected and welcome.

Edit: Wait, article says Microsoft Indonesia. Let's wait til MS America confirms it.

Well despite not liking the game at all after playing the beta, I must admit it felt polished for a beta.

Agreed, the core gameplay didn't grab me but the beta itself was very well done and I didn't see any of the usual glaring Battlefield bugs.

Nah I think plenty of shows start off with a bang, in fact I'd say too many shows go on longer than they need to. 3-4 seasons is about the magic quality number for most shows before the writers start running out of ideas. Unfortunately many go for 5+ because its usually a good syndication selling point.

Very few shows like Breaking Bad and Boardwalk Empire which buck the trends.

Boardwalk Empire has just gotten better as its gone on and I'm glad HBO has stuck with it. No one I know seems to watch it sadly, we do a weekly TV thing and no one ever requests it. There's no accounting for taste.

I've found ARs just outpace everything else to the point of absurdity. I found a few shotguns then modded them with full choke, those were alright but nothing like the average triburst death machine AR. Energy Weps are great against armor and I use a few as secondaries. I have my main guy as a sniper just for picking off their snipers. I keep my medic as a melee dude since hes always rushing around healing people and he is pretty solid too.

I've actually gone 10 int on most of my characters, 4 str/spd seems to be all you need for awhile. Luck and charisma are my dump stats, I just have no use for them. The most important thing is just having Combat Initiative at 12+, any lower than 12 and everybody else acts first which is really really bad for you.

The combat is a bit simplistic and the early game is very combat heavy so it feels like a worse version of Fallout Tactics. It takes awhile for the game to get to the better parts but it is a very good game overall.

As to Dark Souls 2 combat, I don't see that fitting a mass appeal that these games have. DS2 has fantastic combat, but it would dramatically slow down the pace of the game and reduce the number of enemies one can face at any time to just a couple.

They don't need to go THAT far, but the whole "get surrounded by enemies, of which only one attacks at a time, and you can instantly counter attack regardless of character direction" thing is just a bit much. I can sort of understand it from Batman because he's a god damn super hero, but here it just looks jarring.

Unfortunately many of these games don't have the AI to pull off interesting combat scenarios. All they can really do is throw masses of enemies together at you and that just ends up frustrating people so instead you get the AC style combat.

Arkham games were a nice of both styles IMO.

I know you weren't agreeing. I used your argumen to make my point, which is that he doesn't seem to actually play -- just talk.

Who cares? It's a discussion forum, if you want to watch people play then go to Youtube or Twitch. I play tons of game I never discuss on here and I'm sure many others do.

It could not possibly matter less if he talks about games (you're wrong, I've seen him talk about them BTW) or not.

Indeed. You actually play them and talk about them. The thing is that I never read anything substential from nin about a game that indicates he's actually played it, and then he says stuff like "I can't wait for The Witcher 3 to ship, so they can start talking about Cyberpunk!" We should all be very surprised if he had instead said the more logical thing in this thread

I wasn't agreeing with you and he doesn't need to write up his experiences or something if he doesn't want to. I'm sure if he needs another parent he knows how to contact you though

The things people choose to care about, hahah.

Getting back to The Witcher 3, I've been really impressed the open world presentation and depth but I still find the combat looks pretty ho-hum. Maybe it was just the video I was watching but hit registration still looked off and the combat itself didn't seem very engaging.

Considering occupy was gutted from within by sjw's, and GG is refusing to let them control the narrative perhaps you're just reading into it far too much.

I love how SJWs are your bogeymen. They're everywhere, man, crawling out of the woodwork while you play DotA2 and disturbing your video game time. You can't get five minutes' peace without some SJW breaking into your house to call you a manhater. Seriously, the nerve!

Yes and the "GamerGate" folk are just out in force, harassing and raping women. Pretty soon they won't be able to vote again!

Holy shit, 6GB of VRam! My card "GTX 970 SC" only has 4GB. WTF!

I just got this card too. I pre ordered this game on GMG had 15 dollar credit and used the coupon got the game for 30 bucks.

Cant wait to play this one, glad to see the reviews are panning out.

I wouldn't sweat the requirements too much, they're often inaccurate. I've seen minimums that are absurd and high end specs that the game didn't warrant at all.

I've played the alpha on and off a bit, shows promise but needs more fleshing out. The crafting really needs more attention, they've already got a good handle on giving you little dungeons and busywork to do. Their housing implementation isn't quite what I had imagined either, just these plots on a changing worldspace feels a bit odd.

I think I want something like this but the ability to have permanent homes on a single world with friends. Sadly most companies don't want private servers as the F2P microtransactions are too attractive.

And then you can't wait for Cyberpunk to ship, so they can start talking about whatever other upcoming project. Others mentioned this before and I just had to chime in to ask it of you as well: Do you even play games or just like to talk about them?

Uh that's kind of how games work, you play them then you play something else when you're finished. He talks about them on a forum just like you do. What a weird post.

I read the entire article; the husband sounds like a piece of shit

I don't know man, I dated a woman who had a brain injury from a car accident several years ago. She was beautiful, very intelligent and didn't have any issues with learning faculties or motor skills but her emotional manifestations were all fucked up and her short term memory was strange. She would confuse people in stories and stuff like that but remain stubborn/certain about the details to the point of argument. Her emotional swings were like whiplash and I'm pretty patient. It was a really challenging relationship and in the end I couldn't stand the constant emotional tug of war.

We dated for less than a year but it felt like being married for 10. I can only imagine what it would be like for that guy who also had kids to contend with and a huge history with her before the accident.
