WOW! That's pretty brutal. I've played some violent games in my time but this one I'm not really comfortable with...

Somebody needs to give this guy a hug

[edit] before his rampage of course - not for it.

Have they commented on the size, or lack thereof, of the playing space yet? From the vids I've seen, the dfm seemed to warn the player at every turn that they were exiting the mission area. Is this a limitation of the engine or for some other reason?

I don't trust Metacritic scores by professional reviewers. I'll wait to see how the masses score it.

You mean the reams of 0's and 10's from teenagers that are unable to score a game anywhere else?

With exception of the intro/escape, and the cutscene's I thought Far Cry 3 was horrible, repetitive, and would have been A LOT more plausible if the military trained brother would have been the main character instead of the party boy middle brother. Not to mention all the things that were shown at E3 that were never in the game.

FC4 is really off my radar until some quality reviews come in.

The problem is FC3 got quality reviews, so that won't be any indication.

I thought the moral choice you had at the end between your girlfriend and the islander was the most forced, and least believable part of the entire story.

I imagine whats going to be hard to adjust to is playing FPS style games when you're seated and in game you'll be standing, crouching, leaning, even laying prone. It's going to feel really fucking weird when you see yourself stand up in game but you're still in a chair. Or if you're going to play standing up then you press crouch or go prone you're going to have to learn to deal with staying in the same position. It might even be easier to play a game like this and crouch when you crouch, stand when you're standing, lean for real when you lean in game.

This kickstarter seemed to handle that quite well, with crouching/sitting hybrid level of control. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TRyOzyTta24

I tend to agree with the article though (not the headline). Mainstream will be a long way off, but the headset certainly wont fail as the headline suggests.

Pacing seems way faster than I expected. Seems like they need a bit more empty moments to build tension better.

Also hope those countdown timers are only for this challenge, rather than the full game.

"Principles and values are of no use if the idealist cannot live up to his own standards." - Bob Salvatore

There ya go, Notch was human all along. Just another flawed hypocrite like the rest of us. There are some people throughout history who never caved, but you can most of those in the hundreds. Which is pretty sad when you measure it against the billions of us who have existed.

Shit man, I'd easily sell out for that sort of bank. Then again, I never pretended I wouldn't like he did either.

Even if we considered him a sellout, there's no telling who he may decide to help with all that money. What if he decided to part with some of it for more noble causes like ALS research? Even if it were a tiny percentage, it's still immeasurably more than he could do holding onto a meaningless (relatively speaking) property like MC. All assumptions of course, but you never know

On what planet would it make any sense for them to spend $2.5billion and then completely alienate the entire playerbase for their game?

I'm still wondering what planet it makes sense to pay 2.5 billion for this at all. It's starting to look a bit like tech bubble 2.0.

I for one am hoping for a decent port this time round. I skipped GTAIV on the PC mainly due to how terribly it ran on PC hardware at the time.

GTAIV ran terrible on console as well.

Trying to remember if I played through ICW1 or 2. Which one had a museum towards the end with a frozen whale in it?

That was near the end? I must have been so close to completing, but got stuck on some boss in a dungeon beyond that point.

They should have gotten rid of bunny hopping and just set the max speed to that.

It was a trick taking advantage of poor code that made some kind of angle running/jumping faster than straight line (IIRC). In any case, it should never have existed and is just a grotesque irritation with no real gameplay value aside from the speed.

Hup hup hup hup hup hup everwhar hup hup hup hup hup.

While it might be annoying to some, it became a part of the skill based gameplay. This one of the reasons why the game lasted for so long. The pure mechanics in it haven't changed and could be relied upon all this time.

While QL is a slightly modified rule set of Q3 the main components remain intact. If they start changing some of the larger things for "growth", they might turn away the very customers that keep them operating.

Must be those fundamentalist Christians again, formenting their own brand of special hatred....after all suicide is a sin...

Where did that come from?

I haven't heard any fundies attacking him. Williams was a well-known practicing Christian. However, there's been plenty from Fox News and Limbaugh as they've been lambasting Williams as a liberal and a coward.

Thanks. [edit] My first assumption was 10 year old with nothing better to do. Either way, sad stuff.

I know it sounds crazy, but every organic, unpredictable, adrenaline-pumping encounter with other people you have in that game, makes the previous couple hours of running around doing next to nothing SO WORTH IT. There's nothing else like it, period. That's why it's popular.

Of course, this is after you know what you're doing... If you don't stick through the learning sheer-rock-face, you're just gonna think it's lame.

As much as I hate standalone, it obviously carries over elements from the mod, like this. The intensity of outsmarting someone you are hunting, or are being hunted by, is second to nothing I've played so far. It just takes a long time to get there. Time that most people don't have. They need to open up the SA to the modding community so they can get some decent modded servers running.

What would be nice is a button that asks "Were you born on January 1st 1900 - yes or no?"

Instead of having to enter it every time.
