I'm sorry, but I'll have to class this article as "wrong". Celcius is still much better for air temperature. It's so easy. Over 0, not so cold. Under 0, cold. Maybe it's because I live in Canada and we go from -30 to +30 celcius, covering the range more equally than someone who lives in California and doesn't understand why minus temperatures would exist.

Best game of 2014? Divinity Original Sin by far.

Dragon age is just a bunch of great story voiceover actors around a generic gameplay.

Divinity: Original Sin is a bunch of great gameplay around generic story voiceover actors.

I tried to play Divinity: Original Sin in coop and we got soooo bored. It was a terrible decision to start the game in this huge town. It's overwhelming and you spend a looooong time just talking to random people. There's ridiculous amounts of dialogue to read too. We got bored really fast and gave up. The game should have started you in a much smaller area and given you more action up front. It might be a great game, but I'd have to quit my day job to have enough time to play it.

I don't think they are that important. I struggle to remember more than a few I care about over the course of the game, most of those involving the potential death of a companion. They can do those anyway without trying to do insane story branching that ends up gimmicky after they realize they can't accommodate everyone. I would much rather those design resources go into fleshing out game content rather than a billion hours on the whiteboards figuring out all of the choice permutations.

I find that the choices are more than the sum of their parts. It adds "deepness" to the game and the feeling that you really can affect the world and that the story is your story. Dragon Age has always been about that and I think it's one of their pillars.

Wishlist for a new DA:

- no more story choices, unnecessary and doesn't amount to much
- Do a decent MP module or just spend the resources somewhere else
- Actual PC interface work done instead of lip service
- Completely new characters and plot set in the same universe, no holdovers
- AI tactic/customization needs to make a comeback
- A few less "zones" with more to do in each of them
- More meaningful sidequests, less bulletin board style filler
- Decide whether you're making an action game for bros or an RPG. No more in between, its hurting the combat.

What? Story choices are super important. Also, NO MP! I think that the key is to spend more time on polish. That's how you make it fun and non-boring. Of course, spending more than 5 minutes on the PC interface would be nice.

My top games are Watch Dogs and the D3 expansion. I'm going to go with WD. I almost 100%ed that game and I never do that. I'm not one of those people who had unrealistic expectations.

So glad I skipped this, almost bought into the hype. Thankfully it's EA, and it's been a while since Ive bought one of their games.

Waiting for the Witcher to scratch that grand-narrative video game narrative itch. Im keeping expectations low for the WItcher III, all except for the narrative and atmosphere which, from what Ive seen of the PC previews, there is an abundance of.

Bioware, oh the attraction of the low lying fruit was too much to resist eh?

I think that the Witcher 3 will be even more boring than Dragon Age. The first two Witcher games were really boring. But like I always said, seeing the impact of your decisions made it all worthwhile. Still, I think a lot of people will be let down by Witcher 3... Hope I'm wrong.

42 hours in dragon age and I can only describe the game as "boring". Yet I tough it out because... good question. I guess I want to see what'll happen.

One frustrating thing is that people don't stay close to home. You lay a new zone with everything they could ever want and they're still traveling across the entire city to work in old downtown.

Sounds like the most realistic thing in the game.

Yeah, that's called the commute. It's not because there's jobs close to you that this is where you'll be hired.

I'm currently in another country for 6 months for work. Are you telling me that one day I won't be able to play the games I paid for? What if I move permanently to another country? I lose my whole Steam library of hundreds of games?

That isn't what this means and I am not sure how you got there. Once the game is verified to your account, it's yours. This is only with regards to the gifting process. You pass through those gates and you are home free.

Yeah I know it's not the case for now, but I could easily see this happening in the future. It doesn't seem very far from this.

Out of curiosity, is the D3 expansion worth 20 bucks? Best Buy of all places has it on sale for 20 right now.

I'd say it's a must have for D3.

All I really remember about it was a total lack of map variations which forced an excessive amount of repetition. You had a subway map, a town map, and a slums map and that's about it until later levels.

Oh, and people getting their panties in a bunch because it had advertising where you would typically see advertising: on billboards.

Hellgate has improved a lot in this regard since launch and it's zones have always been mostly randomly generated. Almost all of D3's areas where static on launch.

Hellgate London had a fantastic amount of potential. I regret nothing about buying it on Day One. Really is too bad the company that made it was so poorly run. I don't play the F2P online version, I tried it and had some fun. Seems to be a decent game with a decent community. I have the community modded/patched single player version that addresses most of the biggest issues the game had. A ton of fun to be had in that.

It obviously has limits because development has stopped, but it was a lot of fun while it lasted. They created a very cool world that I would love to revisit if someone were able to make a second game.

Development is stopped now, but it went on for a long time after Flagship was gone. This new company developped an entire expansion and has done a lot of balancing work. It's not up to Flagship quality, but it's still cool.

d2 was solid, d3 sucked because the same people that made d2 had moved on to bigger and better things and the rejects were left to make d3.

Hellgate London was bigger and better?

Might as well rant here. Hellgate London is the best/most advanced diablo clone ever. I LOVE that game. Sure, it didn't deliver on its promises, angered a lot of people, and isn't perfect, but it was still a damn fun game. Its systems are better than D3's in every way. It's now free to play too and there's enough content to go forward into the "main quest" for... ever. It saddens me deeply that its failure means that we probably will never see a similar game again. Borderlands is a joke compared to this. Borderlands has a much better story though...

...and then we decided to make Diablo3 into WoW lite. Only more amezballs and less griefing. The End.

I don't get the WOW comparison. Other than the skill trees. Which I hate. Still love the game(now that it's fixed).

Also, I'm hearing that fucking Wilhelm scream sound effect more and more in movies, tv shows, and games these days. The other one I hear all the time is the stereotypical prison door squeak. Fucking annoying. It's not funny anymore, you guys. Stop it.

zomg I can't stand the scream either. It totally ruins the whole thing for me. I want originality in my media please.
