Hah that makes too much sense Elf. What they will do instead - BF Hardline $60 + $60 premium. EA would probably do a Kickstarter on it too if they thought they could get away with it.

And at least this is more in Abrams' wheelhouse, so I think they have decent odds of being pretty good.

And on the other hand, the new Star Trek movies...

So yeah I played Destiny yesterday and...its actually good. Like a good mix of Halo, Borderlands and Diablo. Shit there are even some Star Wars vibes in there. The world was very well done, the music was excellent, the loot system has promise and the gunplay was even tolerable. I hate console FPS games and I still had a great time (god bless them for including vehicles and jumping). I went in expecting to hate the game but Bungie has a hit on their hands. I am going to buy this game, it was the most fun I've had on my console since GTA V. Some of it needs rebalancing (spewing ammo at a boss for 4 minutes isnt my idea of fun) but all of the pieces are there and I'm shocked they aren't trying to charge a monthly fee.

The game also has a weird little cursor that you control with the analog stick, makes me wonder if a PC port is coming down the road.

Personally I think Microsoft has made a fantastic contribution to PC gaming this year. By killing GFWL.

I'm sure we'll get some shitty Xbox Gaming app soon to replace it.

So why aren't people bitching at the countless thousands of other games that don't have a playable female character?

They usually do but lets say they start, will that make you feel better?

The chat was fine, are you sure the rest of us weren't just drunk?

I didn't like the codec they used on the PS3, the PS4 voice chat is vastly improved.

The load times on last gen consoles soured the MP for me and the chat quality on the PS3 was garbage. Can't wait to try the PC version.

Yes, but Lara got famous initially because she had ginormous meat pillows. And if characters like Bayonetta aren't about sex why aren't they 40 year old fat, ugly bull dykes?

How many of the males out there played femshep just to see how many lezbo relationships they could get into? Probably most of them.

Sure Cutter ape, sounds good. Ooga Booga. Go stand over there and eat some bananas while the adults talk.

I thought Destiny looked really generic but after reading several positive gameplay impressions from people in the press who have similar taste to mine I have to admit I'm looking forward to checking it out.

11. Re: Linux Sid Meierís Civilization V Jun 11, 2014, 16:13 Verno
 
Its funny how every thread even mentioning Linux has to turn into a thing about how its inferior to Windows.

I'm not a huge fan of Windows in general these days and I use it for very little purpose outside of gaming at home. Microsoft has not been what I would call a good parent to Windows gaming either. Linux serves me just as well so long as I can get the games I want on it and I have plenty of past experience with it. As a PC gamer I'm used to tinkering anyway

I have to admit that I used to be pretty dubious about linux gaming but the strides Valve has made in a very short period of time are really impressive.

That would just seem to buttress Therien's position here, if that's still in sight. Mass Effect is one series where character customization is pretty central, especially compared to Assassin's Creed. If people don't even give much of a shit about that sort of customization in that game, then it starts to make a whole lot more sense that the team here would say 'You know, our resources are better spent elsewhere.'

I get what you're saying but I also think that those norms won't change unless people are given the opportunity. The industry needs to continue growing for the short term and I don't think it will achieve that without tapping more into female demos. It is really hard to do when most of the gameplay, characters and story is geared toward men alone. My girlfriend wouldn't touch most of the games in my library but was immediately drawn to Diablo 3 just because she could make her own character for example. She also really enjoyed The Last of Us because she liked the more mature storyline.

Maybe that doesn't matter in Assassin's Creed: Unity where the demo is largely male anyways but without giving people the option I think its a self fulfilling prophecy.

They are not committing some sin by lacking that desire.

I don't see where anyone said there was something wrong with the default. Likewise there's nothing wrong with wanting something different. Some people are really insecure and don't get that though.

If we're talking about male versus female Shep, last I saw stats on this most people far and away preferred male Shep. And that's quite fine.

I don't know about that conclusion, most people literally just selected the default everything. Gender, hair, eye color, etc. The character customization is pretty detailed and many people don't have the patience. There are more male gamers than female so I would expect the stats to trend that way regardless.

You know those computerized soda machines showing up at places like Burger King? I made a Cherry Coke Zero at one that was the best damn soda I ever drank!

You mean like sodastream or whatever? I've kinda wanted to try one of those but I find soda too sweet in general so I'm not sure I'd enjoy it anymore than the canned or fountain stuff.

I already pretty much subscribe for the old Star Trek stuff, more is always good. Although for the life of me I don't know what people see in Deep Space 9.

Do you like having sex with women? That in and of itself means nothing, but combined with wanting to roleplay a woman is pretty good indicator that you're a lesbian trapped in a man's body. I hear they've come pretty far with gender re-assignment surgery these days. Maybe you should look into it.

You come off as way more insecure and confused IMO, he's just playing whatever he finds interesting. The amusing faux posturing and rigid gender relation screams closet case, maybe you should take your own advice Grouphug

I haven't been following it too closely but I thought No Man's Sky is procedurally generated and Hello Games isn't a big studio so I wouldn't count on much of a story there either.
