It's pretty clear that Reagle actually works for CIG. The way you marginalize a viewpoint is by making it seem insane... and the anti-Roberts crowd seems batshit nuts when all you have to do is point to Reagle. I mean, it's not like anyone could take him seriously... this one's kind of obvious.

Really what's worth preserving about Darksiders anyway? The only notable thing about it is the art. None of the game mechanics are original, or even implemented particularly well. The fictional universe isn't well written, cohesive, or engaging. The plot is meandering and makes the Horsemen look like weaklings that no one really fears.

So what you're saying is you liked the game and recommend it to friends and family, right?

Having fun making a new Molten Strike build for this league and already level 33. I also like the addition of the strong boxes /w the hardcore aspect. Really puts risk on opening those suckers up (good thing for smoke mine!)

I played POE in the beta and haven't really since - this gave me the urge to give it a go with a friend... it's been a blast - I like that you can identify the strong boxes before you open them... and you can upgrade them with orbs too!

Neat idea, and definitely something that keeps the game fresh.

Anyone who thinks Samsung doesn't deserve every lawsuit and every penny of every fine needs to read this story. They are as corrupt as they come.

The very concept of IP/patents is counter-evolutionary to begin with, boohoo, cry me a river!

The only winners in this kind of system and the ensuing court battles are the lawyers laughing all the way to the bank.

As for price fixing/collusion, OFC they'll do it, the underlying structure of the currency based economic system REWARDS that kind of behaviour. DUH!

IDEM for corruption. Time to get out of Plato's cavern where you've been dwelling, gazing at shadows, for a good while it seems.

People who do years of work and research to create something original are having their efforts co-opted and stolen by a group that has put their efforts into being able to steal and co-opt at the highest speed. Your acceptance of corruption, price fixing, and outright theft are unacceptable. Samsung needs to be sanctioned by every major western nation; a high-minded but ultimately confused reference to Plato not-withstanding, your argument is about as empty as they come.

Honestly this is 6 months later than I had expected. I figured they would go F2P by winter 2013.

Yeah, I wonder what the hold up was. Paperwork, maybe?

Kind of amusing to see the butthurt on this one. Just like DS1 this had Steam Sale written all over it.

So this is a RIFLE ONLY version of the game, not the full game? B.S.

This may be the most entitled thing I've read today, and I've got Tumblr open in another window. Nice job, man.

Some wrong decisions? Not, 'Wow, it was one of the biggest clusterfucks of any product launch ever!' Too little too late guy.

Flat out wrong. It's never too little with the money that these guys can throw at things, and we're not far enough along the process to call it too late. Sony managed to claw back to a respectable position with the PS3... it took them a good six years to do it, but they did it. Microsoft's main issue right now is price and price they can fix. Their secondary issue is software, and software they can fix.

They're going to have to cut deep to find the juice to keep feeding the Xbone though. PS Plus is rapidly becoming a service that's worth more than the consoles it serves, and PC gaming is becoming more accessible with every hardware iteration. Microsoft CAN turn this around.

But we both know they won't. So maybe you're not flat out wrong after all

Yeah its obvious that all those other people are talking shit, since the game works perfectly for you. Rolleyes

Gotta admit, you're quick on the shitposting. It's almost every thread, eh? It's pretty clear that the first post was only speaking of his experience, yet you extrapolated that to mean that he was denying it was happening for anyone else. Any idea why you'd do that?

So anyone still playing this? How's it look now that the shine has worn off a little bit??

I've shelved it until MMR is added. I'm working on a few games right now, and can't devote every waking hour to TitanFall... and I'm just not good enough to get by on the skills I'm bringing from other FPS games. Going up against three Gen10s when you're on a team of "how do I call my Titan??" is a disheartening experience. As fun as it is, this game was released unfinished.

The first two InFamous games might feel dated now, but they were a breath of fresh air when they launched. Also, your toughness and mobility absolutely evolves over the course of the game; it's no surprise you're a bit of a squish in the first quarter to first half – the first game is the story of the birth of a hero, and he's not all that tough as he goes on his Campbellian journey.

Second Son takes a different tack, feeding you a full range of powers each time you get a new one, with unlock-able modifiers based on whether you're playing good or evil types. The morally grey options of the first game are gone, but in its place is a tighter game with much better visuals and more fluid gameplay. The struggling-to-parkour feeling of the first two games is gone completely with quick ways to ascend in all power sets–several of which feel reminiscent of City of Heroes in the best way possible.

Adam Sessler smack the game for not feeling "next-gen" enough–he didn't qualify that, so no one really knows what the hell he meant, but I can say this: Second Son is a great game. It's a fun open-world third person action game, and dale with the tropes that come with it. If you're not terribly impressed by a standard set of side missions, hopefully you'll enjoy the combat that can be as hard or as easy as you make it. This is a game with gameplay options, so muck about and figure out what's the most fun for you.

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is also fun; I know folks have a love-on for MGS3, but 2 and 4 were something I enjoyed more. This glorified demo (that's actually something I'm okay with paying $29 for) is the most natural-feeling Metal Gear Game I've ever played. When I'm spotted here it's because I fucked up, not because of janky controls or weird AI. AI responses make sense within the confines of the MG universe: they stand down when they can't find you because they need to return to their posts.

The story is the same old Kojima's-on-acid-right? bullshit it has always been. If you don't care for LaLeLuLeyLame (whatever) you can just nod and smile to the beat and get back to Tactical Espionage Action. Knowing that the mission could be beaten in 10 minutes I took the time to explore the space, get a feel for enemy routes, and tried to set objectives for myself... which is funny because those objectives are unlock-able missions after the first round. Needless to say, this "demo" has secured a purchase of Phantom Pain for me, putting my total MGS5 bill at around $100 Canadian.

I'm fine with that.

Until they add skill-based matchmaking this game is a write-off. Playing against Gen 2-5 players with a team level 2s is about as fun as an hot sauce enema.

Blue, while TOSLink debuted in '83, Dolby Digital didn't hit homes until '95. So less Billie Jean and more Gangsters Paradise for that party.

Yeah, and they had Patrick Stewart do voice acting for Oblivion too! What a joke.

Instead of paying for all these big name voice actors, how about not re-using the same exact voice clips and dialogue for 100 different NPCs? Cookie-cutter voice acting is one of the biggest immersion killers.

I like Hearthstone, but the killer platform for it is tablets. I want to be able to play this on the train via LTE. I'd also like casual asynchronous games against my friends, if you please.

I've been in the beta for a bit, and while I tend to get roflstomped by guys with advanced decks (I play super casually) every once in a while I outplay some bastard with my limited cards. God that feels good.

Annual Pass - if they offered this at a rate of $5 a month, they might actually clog the drain of lost subscriptions.

$5/mo is my sweet spot to have an ever-running WoW sub. For the price of a single game I could "...always go back". $15 a month just isn't going to fly anymore, at least not for me.
