Hrm, I'm glad to see Killing Floor 2 on there, but after playing the Early Access version for a few hours, it feels as though they might be six months or more from a real release.

Oh well, get it right, Tripwire.

I can't even keep up with all the labels being applied to people anymore. It makes me not want to discuss anything with anyone because someone will feel the need to lump me in with one group or another. I can't dislike one group's message, and totally disagree with another. Apparently I'm supposed to pick a side, and I don't want to.

Welcome to a classic human dilemma. Humanity is largely unable to deal with people individually, and must resort to labeling and grouping people(and then feeling hostile or at least disparaging to other groups). We all do it to a certain extent, all we can do is try to recognize it and overcome it.

It's particularly upsetting to me that 'atheist' is getting misused so much these days, or at least tied to some assholery online.

Anyway, don't feel like you are the only one; most people really don't fit easy into any simple classification/group.

Looks interesting. I need to get around to finishing Amnesia.(But I keep forgetting... too obvious ) I got a vaguely Dead Space-ish feel from the environment, I was halfway wondering why he didn't just pull out an arc welder.

Also, glanced at the title and thought this.

Ucav and Mortar have a 60s delay before you can deploy, each spawn. So you can't spawn and use ucav, you have to wait (And stay alive) 60s.

Which makes roof exploiters (who dead-lock elevators with c4) even harder to actually kill. This change actually soured me on Infantry only mode. Dawn Star (or whatever) is now a complete fucking mess. 1 elevator to that roof, impossible to get to when enemy squad locks it down. And that roof gives them COMPLETE map dominance.. whoever designed that map.. fuck that guy. Shanghai, same problem, roof is not reachable anymore as you won't survive on the other roofs long enough to deploy ucav or mortar and clear the center roof area.

Essentially, this update is a campers wet dream. Not only is it harder to dislodge campers, it is more important than ever to camp if you want to actually clean a roof camper squad.

That sucks. I rarely play any infantry only mode in Battlefield games, but I can understand the desire to limit UCAVs in vehicle play... that is easily the most annoying weapon in the hands of somebody even remotely good at it. (remotely, ho ho ho )

It is such an easily exploitable weapon, does a ton of damage to vehicles, and is extremely hard to spot or avoid. It also one shots large groups of infantry; honestly I'd like to see them remove it from the game entirely. It also encourages shitty players to stay in their spawn the entire round, but a lot of things do that unfortunately. Good players with UCAV just have an almost guaranteed kill(s) every minute or so, on the other side of the coin.

Same for mortars, to a lesser extent, or at least revert them to a BF3 style mortar where the player has to be at the mortar to use it.

I'd say use the XM25 thing on those roof campers, but that's been nerfed quite a bit too, I haven't tried it in this new patch to see how viable it is.

So what you guys are saying is the film is cray bananas.

The film is gorgeous; it's arguably required viewing for any movie aficionado.

More on topic, this game actually looks pretty good, if those driving scenes are actual gameplay and not all cut scenes.

Hrm, this looks great! RPG Renaissance indeed. Tides of Numeria, Divinity:OS Enhanced and Wasteland 2 Enhanced editions, Pillars of Eternity patch 1.06, it looks like I'll be putting another 400 hours or so into my isometric rpg addiction this year.

Love the way, after making a comment the other day about Daniel Craig playing a stormtrooper in the upcoming Star Wars movie, he ends with:

p.s. Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan are also Stormtroopers in The Force Awakens.




That's pretty interesting actually, it makes me wonder what the storyline is going to be as far as the clone troopers... all died off, or are there still a few aging ones left, ie. Dalton/Brosnan? Or do they just happen to be older Troopers(non-clone)

More importantly, I saw Mad Max:Fury Road today, and it was beautiful. Insane stuntwork, gorgeous visuals and audio, tolerable dialogue, great non-verbal acting. Clearly some skilled mechanics in the wasteland of Australia too.

Everybody on Bluesnews should drop what they're doing and go see Mad Max. For the record, I saw the 2D version, I'll probably go see the 3D version next week to compare.

Personally Gun Master and Scavenger were my two favorite modes added to BF3, so I'm happy to see at least one of them make a comeback.

I thought Gun Master(or whatever it was called) in CS was pretty fun, but the shooting is much tighter in that engine. With BF4's sometimes sketchy registry those infantry focused mods get old for me pretty fast, but glad you are looking forward to them.

Looking at the expanded patch notes, they sound like some decent changes. Yet another game mode though, really? Well, somebody will play it, but I feel as though the game overall would be better served by focusing on the core gameplay of Large Conquest, and maybe even cutting a few of the other modes(Air Superiority) at least as requirements for unlocks.

I haven't played in months though, going to be rusty as hell when I go back for this patch

After reading the article, I was a bit surprised to see that Facebook is tracking users who aren't even logged in, as well as non-users.

Apparently their little Like/Share buttons that seem to be all over the damned internet now do a lot more, although the article doesn't say whether they are activated regardless of whether you actually click or not.

Good luck, you're going to need it.

Maybe, but you'd think somebody would have already stuck a copy in a newspaper somewhere and forgotten about it.

I'll look around later tonight.

There supposedly is a new event on PC as well, a cow level. Not to be confused with the cow rift, this is a separate event that spawns from a small cow-goblin thing when you kill it.

It seems to have a spawn rate of about the same as the original Greed zone goblin, so it's entirely possible some people won't see it before the event is over.

Adventure/Campaign mode only.

*EDIT* Keilun beat me to it.

*EDIT 2* Whoops, Blizzard.

Don't do that. PT is no longer available.

P.T. is no longer available, via standard PS4 downloading. The internet though...

kojima: "i will never fucking do that"
konami: "get out"
kojima: "gladly"

That's probably about how it went down. I'm halfway tempted to buy a PS4 and download that P.T. demo thing, from all the praise I'm hearing for it. What a shame that Konami has imploded.

I'm looking forward to Kojima starting work somewhere else soon though.

Holy shit, that looks great! I know it's pure CGI but even the gameplay trailers look good.

I swear I'll get through what I have left on the first two games soon, so I can move onto this one.

I'm hesitant to say it, but it also seems, at least in this trailer, that they captured a little bit of the flavor of the novels, where it isn't quite so black and white as some aspects of the games. I could just be reading into their gorgeous cgi though.

I liked that earlier cinematic video a lot more... I think I'll be on the lookout for the youtube versions of the full cutscenes for this game, zero desire to actually play this though.

Both teams dogpiling on ONE cap point? Is that just a test map or something? A lot of distracting visuals, at least to me, also.

Seeing that video makes me want to fire up Battlefield 4 again, and I've been away from that for months now, playing the various new RPGs.

This reminds me of the 30-Second Bunnies movies, in a very good way. I also want to re-watch CA:tWS now.

"You guys remember that incredible trailer we showed off about two years ago? Yeah, it looks and plays nothing like that anymore."

Basically this. It's a shame, but it's yet another game that can't live up to the crazy hype they try to generate pre-release.
