I enjoy Anita Sarkeesian's Tropes videos, and I think she makes a good point on a lot of them. However, the media coverage on this issue has been extremely one-sided (I've never actually seen them ask a gamer their side). A week or so ago, I switched it to MSNBC (accidentally...Dishnetwork replaced CNN with it) and one of their bobble-head/talking-heads was white knighting that Quinn person, with her playing the innocent during the interview.

Bale should do a good Jobs. Both are/were egotistical megalomaniacs.

Plus Bale is a super dedicated actor. Guy doesn't fuck around when it comes to prepping for a role.

I just hope this movie isn't another love song to Jobs.

I see "ORA" and I immediately think of an Oracle database error. Not a great name.

26G? Is that all on-disk DLC or something? How are games getting shorter and simpler, yet use up more and more disk space? Don't they use any sort of compression any more?

"There is currently no information of whether or not DirectX 12 will be coming to older versions of Windows."

I doubt it will be on older versions of Windows. When it comes to Microsoft, the carrot is also the stick.

"Bash Bug “Shellshock” Is as Large an Issue as Heartbleed."

And it doesn't affect Windows or Android. I love watching smug Apple fanboys/press sites (which are largely one in the same) squirming to justify how this, the bending phones and the two emergency iOS 8 updates in two days are no big deal because it's Apple. So delicious.

  • Activision is making a Duck Dynasty game.


  • FINALLY! NOW I have a reason to buy a console again!

    Do they think their target audience for this game has a XBONE/PS4? Hmmm...

    Clearly there is no danger of a weaponized version of this hunting us all down in 10-20 years. Clearly.

    I'd imagine my last thought before it kills me would be "That's so cool...".

    its easy to make simple scenes look great with UE4, but complex scenes with tons of unique assets quickly become a nightmare. UE4 is pretty awesome, but its got a ways to go. Having said that, people are doing really cool stuff with it (check out the work in progress section of the forums at unrealengine.com).

    Looking at a finely crafted cinematic just makes you realize that you need an Epic sum of money to make a[n] real game interactive movie with Unreal Engine.

    Otherwise agreeing with you, I fixed just that.

    I would argue that it would be impossible to make the Unreal we all know and love with the current Unreal engine.

    Unreal ]|[ certainly didn't advance the series and Unreal Classic wasn't that expensive(?).

    p.s. The Unreal franchise has done better than most at preserving fundamental gameplay mechanics.


    Sadly, I'd agree with you on that. You need a team of talented people nowadays, as a good game can be pretty complicated. It took me quite a while to do the following simple scene, and the tools involved include Unreal Editor, Photoshop, XNormal, Blender, and Quixel Suite. The days of doing everything in a single program are over

    The very first frame on the video shows a bint dressed in, basically, a bikini. PLEASE TAKE US SERIOUSLY LOOKIT TEH BOOBIES!

    I give this a premature, yet somehow feeling well-deserved, five dismissive wanks.

    Yah, it did seem like the camera focus was attached to her chest the entire time. I agree that the whole direction of the video was crap. Will have to wait and see the gameplay.

    The last thing Bobby wants to do is come down that $60 price tag, so they keep including a SP campaign few people want or even care about.

    Is that really true? I never even bother much with the multiplayer modes in CoD and only really play it for all the scripted craziness in the singleplayer campaigns as I've never been much into competitive gaming. I actually had a lot of fun with CoD1/2's singleplayer.

    Why do people dislike the singleplayer modes that much? I didn't realize this was apparently a majority thing.

    I dislike the extreme hand-holding linearity of the single player, and the lack of real interactivity. Case in point: final "boss" fight in MW2.

    I wonder when Activision realizes their market doesn't give a shit about single player, and they stop wasting time on the 4 hour cinematic mode (oh, you mean it's interactive?).

    It's not like you have running water in that van of yours

    In Oklahoma, we have chicken shit water, that (obviously) tastes horrible from all the chicken farms upstream. It's so bad the mayor actually went on tv and drank a glass, to prove it was safe.

    Bottled water, on the other hand, doesn't have that taste.


    Is everyone super-svelte from the salmonella?
