Shit... I know this is going to end up being consolized, extremely monetized, and no doubt buggy as shit upon release, but these videos are still like crack cocaine!

Wow, I'm sad to hear so many people didn't really like PoEt(!), but it has gotten a lot better with the later patches. At this point though, you might as well wait for the next patch, which is pretty major, and this first expansion.

Waiting for the second expansion? Overkill.


Also, Gog/Obsidian really need to condense their current patches on Gog, there are like 7-8 separate patches already.

Because it's not about killing an animal. It's about how it was killed and why. Even PETA may not like people that kill animals for food but they can understand it. No one, and I mean no one, except for other tiny-dicked psychopaths likes trophy hunters. It's a sin if there ever was one. Then the how, luring the animal out of a protected reserve to shoot it. Shooting it with an arrow so as not to alert the authorities. Letting it bleed to death over 2 days. Then beheading and skinning it leaving the carcas to rot, all to make said tiny-dicked dentist feel like a big man. And said tiny-dick dentist has done this before. Poaching and lying about it to cover his self-entitled ass. Does that make things a little clearer for you?

Africa is a problem of its own making, but animals are innocents just doing what they do, so yeah, it pisses people off when assholes like that dentist do shit like this.

Believe me, it's crystal clear for me. Trophy hunting is atrocious, the dentist is a scumbag and most likely part of a crime, very few people will argue against that.

However saying Africa is a problem of its own making ignores hundreds of years of slavery, exploitation, colonization and general rape and pillaging of resources on a vast scale.

My comment was more about the nature of humanity to simply ignore the suffering of large numbers of humans and focus on one admittedly terrible story about ONE animal.

A similar style of thinking occurs all the time, I'm not sure what you would call it, but the same person that curses out homeless people will lose their shit over rescuing a stray dog or cat. Blaming the victim, maybe?

CORRECTION: "Hitchhiking Robot Lasts Just Two Weeks in US Because US CITIZENS Are Terrible"

It crossed Canada and many European countries including Germany without a scratch. US proving once again how barbaric and savage this country really is.

Meh, while the US has its share of problems, let's not blame 300+ million people for the actions of a handful, or even possibly one person.

Also, this robot probably had a longer US lifespan than most human hitchhikers, if the stories can be believed.

"Zimbabweans baffled by foreign concern for killed lion."

Exactly. A whole lot of free outrage over a dead animal, not a single tear shed over the actual human suffering going on in Zimbabwe. "People without electricity or water? Meh. Lions! OMG let's start a twitter campaign!"

Good work, humanity.

Rowdy Roddy Piper died? Damn, They Live is one of my favorite movies all time, and he was great in that. He was also pretty damned awesome in his few appearances on It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia... an underrated actor for sure. I have never been into pro wrestling but I always respected their athletic ability. It must be a ton of damage to the body though.


*EDIT* Typo.

LOL! Best news blurb I've read in awhile...assuming that's not some translation of some Onion-like Norwegian source.

Congratulations to the ninja-shitter who has apparently been able to avoid detection for at least a decade... serious dedication to a juvenile prank.

Bummer. I thought it'd be here sooner. That's cutting it kind of close to Fallout's release date.

I'm not complaining really. It's a free update for me.

Between the Director's Cut of Wasteland 2 and Fallout 4, I'm much more interested in W2DC. That game was great in spite of being a buggy mess on release day, it'll be amazing(hopefully!) with the added content and other patches.

Hurricane Katrina. People had over a WEEK to get the fuck out. With rare exception I honestly people got what they deserved. What killed me living in Florida is people who rebuilt their homes 3 or 4 times after each hurricane, then are on the news complaining how they lost everything AGAIN.

Most of the people who stayed in Katrina were extremely poor, with no physical way to leave, no money to leave, and nowhere to go with nothing to pay for rooms once they got there. That's not even counting those too ill or infirm to leave. Saying they got what they deserved is fucking ridiculous.

Top that off with classic Red Cross bullshit if you read the story, where they were almost turned away from the Astrodome, because they hadn't been in the Superdome first... it had to be completely insane down there.

I played the first FNaF, and was not overly impressed with the game itself, however it was a bit impressive that it was a one man operation back then.

Getting angry for this guy releasing games too quickly to whatever arbitrary measurement somebody has seems ridiculous. If people get sick of them they'll stop buying them, like I did.

But did they ever improve AMD card performance? It ran like shit last time I tried...

My desktop PC is about 4-5 years old, R7970 3gb and i870 2.8ghz, 8gb RAM, SSD; the game ran a bit choppy on max settings until I turned off some of the "Nvidia" options in graphics. Shadows look a bit worse, runs smooth now.

I bought Dying Light off of Indiegala during their last sale... it's great so far, although I did get sick of all my weapons breaking and I modded the weapon degradation off.

So far jump kicking zombies, excuse me, infected, off the roof, firebombing large groups and fracturing skulls with blunt objects is still highly entertaining.

I don't know why they limited the max number of repairs in Dying Light... Having to repair all the time was annoying enough in Dead Island, but now your solid steel weapons just break completely after awhile? Intolerable!

Anyway, I will probably get a story based expansion, from what I hear the current DLC is pretty terrible though.

$2 ? Ouch. What site are you talking about, g2a.com? I'll buy if it'll be a real key(that doesn't get revoked a week later, etc.)

*EDIT* hrmm, yeah like $3.29 currently for a Uplay key. It must be pretty terrible.

After playing Victor Vran, D3/PoE/Grim Dawn's combat system feels so boring and archaic now.

I think VV did a Dark Souls on me in the isometric ARPG genre.

That good, eh? Well if I can get a straight answer on the Gog forums about the DRM aspect I'll pick it up.

You throw the dagger. You hit the Dragon!

The Dragon dies a gruesome death.

>Get Dagger

You look at the corpse, it's way too gross to put your hand in there.

I'm paraphrasing a bit, but that's what I remember from the first King's Quest... 25+ years ago? It might even have been 30.

I hear what you are saying. PoE combat is definitely technically inferior in the sense of animations, timing, smoothness, and reliability. But PoE combat when you get end game is super-fun too. I'm curious if you ever got a good 5-Link attack skill setup? PoE takes 30+ hours of play to get really fun, which is a downside.

About drops, I don't trade either and you can do fine with the drops. You just won't ever have the best Uniques...which is ok. You can still play nearly all end-game content playing self-found.

I have like... 8 characters on PoE, only one of which has been lucky enough to get a halfway decent chest with 5 link. As a drop, which is I guess like winning the lottery in PoE. Everybody else has numerous 4 link pieces, so my guys do okay, I guess. But I can't tolerate games that use ultra-rarity drop systems to try to force trading. D2 had the same issue, but D2 at least had modding, which saved that game for me, long term. PoE, there are items I won't find even if I dump 1000+ hours into the game, which takes the fun out of it for me. Plus, they have some items locked behind the league wall, so I'd also have to start from scratch repeatedly, which I was willing to do a bit early on, but not 3 years later.

On the plus side, they are always working to improve and add to PoE, so I keep my account and check in from time to time to see where they are headed.

just play path of exile, it's a much better game.

Sigh, I wish you were entirely correct. Path of Exile has a lot of interesting aspects, but the basic core of that game, the combat, is inferior to Diablo 3. I say this as somebody who played PoE from the beta 3 years ago, on and off to the current release. On top of that, drops for single players are way too low, in my opinion. I don't trade, I have no intention of trading, so don't try to force me(or the many people like me) to have to trade, by having shit drops.

The randomized "crafting" of PoE is even worse than Diablo 3's crafting, which shouldn't even be possible.


I play D3 and PoE on and off when I have an ARPG urge, and I'm still mildly interested in patch 2.3 for D3. The latest PoE patch, while huge, was still boring.

Opinions will differ of course, but I think a lot of people feel similar to the way I do; PoE is still lacking.
