If thieves were more reluctant to steal phones then nobody would need to replace them. Which means that would eat into the phone manufacturers profits, and I'm pretty sure they would much rather have a slice of that $2.5bn.

Wikipedia founder calls alt-medicine practitioners “lunatic charlatans”.

That's because they are. I like this guy.

So I guess facebook is going for a persistent online VR world where users can share pics of their cats, kids and favourite memes all in 3d.

I'm a little concerned about the D-pad buttons though. I cant imagine a fighting game would work well on those.

I quite enjoyed it, enough to even play through it twice with the "murder everyone" and the "be a nice guy" styles. (Note: Game is 10000 times better when you creatively murder everyone.)

However, I have no clue why this needs a sequel. The story was told, and told well...

I think Harvey Smith had actually said that he was on the fence about doing a sequel, as he felt the story was told as well.

I'd say the story of Corvo doesn't need a sequel (But I'm sure you could do one) but the universe they created has plenty of other tales that could be told. Plus I don't think publishers like one off games, they want to go for franchises which I imagine would net them more profits in the long run.

Excellent, I loved Risen. More of it can only be good. Now I'll have to get around to actually playing Risen 2

Its probably too much to ask that they put a Metroid Prime game on PC.

China builds own phone OS, aims to be more secure than Android or iPhone

HA! ... HAhahahahahaha!

If you all think the NSA is bad... wait till you get a load of all the knock-off electronics by Huayi with back doors purposely designed in the products.

Yep and wait till the stories start trickling in of Chinese citizens disappearing in the night, after texting or saying the wrong thing.

Jer, you're missing the point that these guys didn't understand Thief from the get-go. I seem to recall reading most of the team had never even played one of them. They were intent on fixing what wasn't broken to begin with. They wanted to "reboot" the franchise and turn into some slick consolized derp assassin game. Not using Steven Russel as Garret once again speaks volumes about it.

They removed jumping because they said they didn't want players making mistakes like falling off a roof because their idea of Garret was he was too uber for that to happen. Their idea. Not what the player wants or could be fun or interesting, but because it doesn't fit their vision of a game on rails. Arrows that can only be used in the same manner. And the list goes on and on.

They seem to have absolutely no clue as to why people loved the original games. Further, they don't seem to even care. So yeah, the red flags are going off all over for a myriad of reasons. It'll probably be well received by console kids who have never played the originals and therefore have no idea what they're missing. For the rest of us it'll be a miracle if the game doesn't suck balls entirely.

All of your points are spot on. Not to mention they also ripped off a game (Dishonored: visually and thematically) that was inspired by the original Thief. Why would they do that? Its just baffling.

I'm trying to be open minded, but the developers are making it hard.

Lucky we have the dark mod.

Anyone playing it? More of the same ala WD? I can wait for mega sale. They are fun, but it is just a click book.

I love the story and the main characters, gameplay wise it seems fairly similar, but I only played Walking Dead for about 10 minutes.

I highly recommend it, but I'd say wait for a sale when all the episodes are out. Waiting for the next episode has been shit.

Is this from the PS4 version? Because the visuals don't look that great.
I wonder if thats John st John doing the voice-over, it sounds a lot like Duke Nukem.

First thing to pop in my head as I watched the trailer - "Granny Rags".

I'd rather him make something single-player, in the vein of Unreal. You know, rummaging around lost on an alien world, exploring temples and the local civilisation. All whilst gunning down hostile creatures.

Ahhh perfect timing, I was planning on formatting and putting linux onto my little asus ep121 tablet. I can put steamOS on instead. It should be powerful enough to run some of the less demanding indie games and it has an HDMI output for the tv. Hope the Xbox controller works as well.

Unless its one of those embarrassing photos your mother took of you in the bath as a kid, its going to be porn. Especially if its on some guys HD with gigs of naked pics of other peoples kids.

I cant tell if this is an on-rails shooter or a proper fps. Definitely a B-grade game.
