Maybe if you've never owned German Shepherds, because they're the best dogs ever.

Family had two Airedales, back in the day.

Best. Dogs. Ever.

Happy Hudson Day, Blue!

Since when is "30 FPS" a recommended system requirement? People don't by FPS hardware, they buy video cards...

Huh? Oh. No, I had to read it again, but I don't think that's what it says.

They're saying that the recommended requirements, once finalized, will run the game at 1080p @ 30fps.

While I agree that the article is absolutely yellow journalism, John Gabriel's Greater Internet Fuckwad Theory (aka the Online Disinhibition Effect), is a problem without an easy solution.

Public canings would be a great start, though...

You should add me on steam. just look up dark88xx

That comes back with nothing and dropping the xx comes back with a boatload of dark88 variations. Just add me instead. It's Cutter - oddly enough. Mine is the one from Toronto Ontario with the little stained glass avatar of Heimdall. Also I'm the only one in the Blues News group as well.


How did I not realize there was a Blue's group?!

Really, Chris? Really?

And I guess the end goes something like this?:



And gentlemen in England now-a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs’d they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Star Citizen’s day.

A) Blue, you shouldn't have to apologize for observing a date has two sevens in it.

B) Calling someone 'Bob Saget' is a whoa-whoa-whoa moment. I mean, that really crosses the line. That dude is like the Family Circus of comedians. Even Carrot Top avoids that dude at parties.

C) How is Rocket League, anyway?

It's possible there's a layer to it that's like a really old game called Starflight, if so then I'll be blown away.


Starflight set the bar pretty high, man.

Yeah, okay, open-ended is great...

...but what is there to do?


Exploration is awesome...

...if there's something to find.


The game looks interesting, but I'm not grokking the driving elements, I guess. I mean, in Minecraft, you explored to find awesome procedurally-generated environemtents...but ultimately because you needed more diamonds and redstone.


What's the hook?

Doesn't your comparing it to Minecraft (and it's lack of a push) answer your own question? The video stated you find shit, upgrade your shit, and can go further... Isn't that the same as diamonds and redstone?


It's not the same thing at all.

Minecraft is about building. You know...mining and crafting. Yes, there is an effectively limitless world to explore, and resources to gather, but those are a means to an end. To build whatever you can imagine. That's the hook.

What you describe is just a treadmill. Unless there is something new and different to find, what is the point of an exploration game?

"Ooh! This hill is blue, not green! PINK water! Wow!"

Even Starbound has more depth than what I see here, pretty as this is. At least in that I can find, destroy, or build epic structures and civilizations on the variations-of-the-theme worlds I explore.

It looks nice, I just hope they build a game on it.

RONIN is fun.

All the reviews cite some minor issues, it's not "perfect", whatever.

Screw perfect. This isn't a 200hr AAA title that will require a huge investment of time and resources.

It's fun. Reminds me of why I play these damn things.

Am I the only one that thinks that beer catch is just being played backwards?

EDIT:

Eh, I didn't see the over the shoulder toss, after.

Dude is a Jedi, apparently?

How is that not "still waiting"...?

They were supposed to have a playable client years ago - if I've overlooked it, please enlighten me.

Played online, last night, with my Crew.

I'm pretty amazed. Looks amazing. Silky smooth. Incredible view distance. Even the character import worked pretty well (aside from adding lipstick to my character, for some reason, which was easily removed at the barber shop).

We spent the rest of the night wreaking havoc on the streets and raining fire from the heavens until my Crew finally bailed in the wee hours.

Slow clap, Rockstar.

I'm pretty shocked at how well it runs and looks on my rig.

Character transfer from PS3 was pretty easy and slick.

My crew bailed on me around 2am, I had no idea it was that late...Well done, R*.

You just described 97.8% of all licensing deals...

Why some dolt who is incapable of coming up with their own successful IP thinks they can "re-imagine" someone else's for the better will never make sense to me.

Well, other than the usual "stupid people do stupid things" explanation.

We actually had a lot of fun with Brink.

Played it at least as much as Titanfall. Certainly better than Evolve.

I haven't been back to it for a long time, doubt it aged very well, but my friends and I played it and had fun for long enough I never regretted owning it.

Then again, I think we picked it up on sale, after they hammered out their launch issues.
