Not compared to anything. Watching Ghostbusters 2 is a worse use of time than arguing with strangers on the Internet. What gem of writing stood out? What example of perfect comedic delivery did it have to offer? If I've forgotten something good then maybe you can provide a quote or a YouTube clip?

Whoa, a stranger asking to be swayed on the internet! Mwahahaha!

I'd argue the courtroom scene was one of the best scenes of Ghostbusters 2, where they are getting persecuted as frauds, Rick Moranis has some great work as a lawyer, some well played stock NYC characters and judge do some work, then of course they have to break out their proton packs and...bust...some...ghosts.

The problem with Ghostbusters 2(or 3 for that matter), is similar the 2nd Matrix... the major cats are out of the bag, they are staring up at a colossal first film that was entirely new, and all the sequel can do is let people down, who felt the first film was near a religious experience.

I accept your thanks for reshaping your world view.

Seasons are simply a terrible idea, as currently implemented. Especially if you, like me and most people, already had 6+ characters before they added Seasons.

Hopefully they at least cut down the season length so Seasonal Legendaries get added to regular mode faster.

Video game addiction? Heh. Of course video games are an addictive waste of time, everything that isn't directly related to survival and the continuation of the species is a waste of time in the grand scheme of things.

I question what the authors of the article think these people would be doing instead, watching tv? Drinking at a bar? Staring at Facebook for hours? Staring at X aspect of nature somewhere? It's not like the second these people quit gaming they would suddenly have unlimited free time and funds to travel the globe or something.

Video games are a cheap addiction(aside from some of those mobile games!), but hey, at least it's not crystal meth.

Get a job, get some exercise, play some games, talk to some people. Moderation in all things, including moderation. Thanks, Ben Franklin.

Hrm, looks great; I loved the first one, this might be a guaranteed buy unless they really screw something up before release.

All these actors are solid with long resumes. It's good that they're getting more exposure.

I don't disagree, and yes I've seen all of them in other films or shows. It's just they seem WAY too young, from a comic nerd perspective... Reed Richards is always shown in his late 30s/40s, with white hair at his temple's for Odin's sake. Ben Grimm is huge even as a human, in every iteration of the FF. Maybe I am just nitpicking, and/or missing Jessica Alba walking around in spandex.

If the UI sucks on release day, relax. CD Projekt RED has easily the best track record of any developer for post release support.

It just might take a year or so.

Hrm, sounds like this film will have a ridiculous uphill battle to be even halfway decent.

Although, don't hate on Ghostbusters 2! *Vigo of Moldavia scowls at you*

Of course Ghostbusters 2 wasn't going to be as good as the original, that would be impossible. There are definitely worse sequels though.

Hrm, Grey Goo is sounding good from professional reviews and Steam comments so far, I'll get it when it drops a bit.

I bought Void Destroyer also, seems pretty interesting, but I feel as though I was expecting a little more out of the ship combat. 2 guns, and movement, Descent/Babylon 5 style movement that is. I haven't played it much really as a straight RTS yet, but pretty impressive if this is all the work of basically one guy.

Probably not a good sign that you have sound issues; the sounds are almost undetectable for me, at least on my laptop, regardless of how loud I set them. Might not be the best sound coding.

Freedom Force is one of my favorite games, but with the popularity of comic book movies now I am sure a new FF would get ruined by somebody, somewhere along the line.

Anyway this sounds like it is so far out from an actual game, there's nothing to get worked up about... yet.

I must be getting old... I watched that Fantastic Four teaser, and all I could think was: who the hell are these children? (Of course certain actors I recognized, but the age relative to characters, ugh)

Sounds like my cunning plan of a buggy release, a quick price drop, and some patches is all coming together. *rubs hands together, chomps down on cigar*

Every video I see of this looks fucking amazing. Now the only question is, attempt patience, hold off and wait for patches and a sale, or jump in on or near release day?

ps. Loved Dead Island at first, got sick of the grind as the game went on(zombies respawning insanely fast)

Looks pretty good, but I'm behind enough on games that I'll probably let this get patched a bit and drop in price before I buy. I still need to finish up the first 2 games also

That's a shame, I was hoping G2A was just selling global keys at a discount. I think I've bought one game from them, oh well. No more.

*EDIT* Oh FUCK me, it was Wasteland 2... hopefully Valve/inXile don't get inspired to go after G2A by Ubisoft's move.

Although I already put like 110 hours into Wasteland 2, and finished it thoroughly... I was planning on playing it again in the future.

Hopefully that game fails utterly... if it somehow makes it into production/public use, it will easily be the most hacked game of all time, if real money is involved per kill.

On top of that, their demo video looks completely terrible, but it's probably alpha level footage or whatever.

News Comments > Gearbox Recruiting for "Next Borderlands"
16. Re: Gearbox Recruiting for Jan 26, 2015, 14:10 MoreLuckThanSkill
 
As others have said, Borderlands 3 would have to have some major improvements, especially on PC, for most people at this point.

1) Way more active skills, less boring percentage Skill Tree points.

2) More than 4 guns in usable slots.

3) Better Menus/Interface on PC, at the very least break that single queue list out sideways on bigger screens, fix the mouse interface that STILL sucked on BL2.

4) Modability would be nice, but probably won't happen. As in, supported modability, to allow more involved mods.

5) Less focus on forcing people to grind the same boss dozens/hundreds of times for a drop, it's obvious they drastically reduced drop rates in BL2 compared to BL1, no idea about the prequel. I'd say the game is unplayable(due to boring drops) in single player, without a drop adjustment mod.

6) or if they are afraid to raise drop rates, make usable guns more common, way, WAY less crap drops, please.

Funny how peps want to wait for this game to go on sale , but don't have nada problem putting 1000$ or more for a pixel ship in Star Citizen , Wall guess those peps are feeling important like " We made the game" jezz

To be fair, I don't think we have anybody who is into Star Citizen for nearly that much on Blues. Based on the last couple SC threads, we do have a small number of people who are in at the base level, whatever that was.
