10 million dollar prize pool? The article mentioned a slightly more modest 2 mil for League of Legends... are these MOBA games really that big now? For shame, humanity.

There's just no tactics to it at all. Early on before explosives, since there are no formations your guys enter combat in a clump, first round you move them to cover or just crouch and set everyone to "ambush". The AI is pretty tard, so they always rush into your field of fire, so most battles end by the second third round as you decimate them the first round. You literally have 3 options in combat, crouch, attack, and ambush which is basically overwatch. Later on it get's even worse because you get grenades, and so does the enemy, which are completely overpowered in that they are 100% accurate and do about 100 damage which is instakill unless you are level 10+.

No feats, no aimed shots, no body part targeting, very little environmental destruction; it's just really boring.

Hrm, that sounds less than stellar. Is that the finalized combat, or have they announced plans for some improvements?


As far as PoE goes, I hope those beta testers wear the shit out of the game, find as many bugs as possible, so my full version release is as good and smooth as possible.

Ah, this glorious, glorious scam continues to draw in more dollars. This will be an excellent case study some day, in some psychology program.

Hrm, what exactly do they consider the original release? Through Steam?

Is there some release AFTER the original that isn't the Director's Cut? I admit I didn't follow Shadowrun that closely, but since I finished Divinity:OS, I'm going to go back and finish it now.

Not only does this game look *fantastic*, but they're using the same engine for Cyberpunk.

Can you f*cking imagine what that's going to look like?


Don't jinx it!

Never heard of pathfinder, but I hope their CCG does well so they'll make a cool RPG with it.

It's pretty popular among the people I know who still do actual table top gaming, definitely the preferred ruleset compared to the last couple of D&D editions. Nerd Cred!

Pathfinder is an Open Game license ruleset, you may have run across a sci-fi adaptation of it somewhere.

Pathfinder vanilla.

That said, not too interested in their first game with this license, if it's really going to be a Tablet based card game, ugh.

Hopefully they are just getting their feet wet, and they'll make a real CRPG later.

Wow, here's hoping he still has the leg function to get up and stumble into a shower.

The game is really not anywhere near good enough to put those kind of hours in, damn.

Hrm, animations and graphics look pretty good. Some gameplay videos would be nice, but it seems like Tripwire definitely put some of that cash they've earned since KF1 to good use.

Dead Island you know... that game that had that really fucking awesome CGI in reverse trailer that turned out to be nothing that cool, except jump kicking everything to death?
No way in hell I'm touching Dying Light until it gets some glowing reviews, and goes on a Steam Sale.

Well, I bought Dead Island on a steam sale, and definitely got my money's worth, jump kicking the entire population of planet earth (zombified) to death. I figure I'll get Dying Light on a $9.99 or less Steam sale also. And then Parkour Jump Kick millions of zombies to death.

Yes, they had the best CGI trailer ever, with about 1% relation to the actual game. Still, the game had some good points. It just got WAY to repetitive and enemies respawned WAY too fast.

What I like about zombie games is the dark atmosphere. This looks more like a comedy... I'm much more excited for Dying Light.

I don't mind the lighting, but Dying Light definitely looks more fun than this rehash by a different company.

I don't even get the point of this game, honestly. Anybody who really liked DI1 is going to be all over Dying Light, not DI2.

They only published it, but one of my favorites was Dark Legions. Loved that game.

Haha, I wasn't the only one to play and love Dark Legions!

I miss that game, although I suspect its gameplay wouldn't go over well for today's audiences without some substantial updates. At the very least a better method of equipping items on troops, etc.

On the subject of BF4, every server has been packed the past couple of days, either with fresh nubile victims, people harvesting those victims, and everywhere in between. I've had some pretty good games so far, statwise.

Ugh... this video is just horrifying, the female passenger may have had a neck injury and they keep moving her around. Fucking morons all around, even the crowd is mind numbingly stupid, "hey is she ok?" No, she's probably dead.

I feel like they're trying hard to make this the best BF4 add on possible. I just hope they bump up run speed more than 10%. I feel like it needs a 50% increase to get to what is the speed an actual adult might run let alone want to play a non ghost recon/rainbow 6 shooter at.

50% increase in run speed? Seriously? You will almost be outrunning tanks. Infantry doesn't even get "tired" currently, you can sprint forever. 10% increase would be fine, let's not get into any realism discussions either, the average BF4 soldier has a rifle, pistol, knife, ammo, grenades, rocket launcher or huge equipment bag, and a secondary gadget. These guys must already be ridiculous athletes to run at all with that gear.


I'm looking forward to the changes as described at least, I haven't spent any time on the CTE though.

Baby seal, still more white than dark, no mother in sight, exhibiting classic exhaustion behavior trying to get up on 'icebergs' and rest. Very cute, but people always make the mistake of anthropomorphizing the actions of wild animals, that may just be injured/sick/tired/hungry.

That or maybe there were sharks/killer whales nearby and it was trying to iceberg itself to get away.

Or maybe it really was curious; it didn't even bite those guys when they handled it a bit. We'll need a seal whisperer, stat.


Also, RIP James Brady, must have been furiously difficult to be partially paralyzed because some nut shot you by accident.

Darn, I thought they were talking about 50 shades of grey.

You are joking of course, but I also disagree that Ulysses is the greatest novel of the 20th century. Most obtuse, sure. Most purposely dense, definitely. Least likely to be a good game, probably.
