Payton finished his 200th game with a Super Bowl win, and Cam is 1000 times better then I am at playing football, not to mention the money they make because of their skills.

Who the hell am I to bitch/moan/complain and play armchair quarterback?

*edited cause I really don't give a shit what his first name is I just know he's a Manning*

People live vicariously through their athletes, this shouldn't be news. Of course they will complain and talk strategies, that's half of the fun.


Cam Newton once again proves he can't keep his fucking cool. Once he gets fucked over a few times he'll learn some humility and be a better player for it.

It was frustrating to watch compound mistake after mistake because his raw talent is just off the chart when he doesn't lose his temper.

It's just a YT review. Who gives a shit? Don't click it to add to the view counter and just ignore it.

I thought you were just being a dick but if anything you soft sold it. It's one step below what you're describing, some pretty bottom rung stuff. Guy is barely understandable half of the time, over use of top shelf adjectives and the content was mind numbing. Just yeah, avoid at all costs folks.

If you make a game that seems worth it then you will get the sales to match.. pirates are not customers.

This is really not true. So many pirates love to comment that they wouldn't have purchased a game if they couldn't try it first by pirating it. Can't have it both ways. There is certainly lost revenue in piracy, the trouble is in actually quantifying that.

I hear a lot of people scoffing at the price tag for this game but it was several times more expensive than Braid to make and offers a lot more value. People just look at a Youtube video of the line crossing and think that's all there is to it, an unfortunate by product of using something like Youtube to make a purchase decision.

No it doesn't. One of the worst games I've ever played. I don't how anyone could even reasonably say it was a good game.

You bitch non stop about pretty much every single game released, whether you've played them or not. Every single game is WAHHH TOO HARD or the devs haven't kissed your ass enough to get your $5 on a Steam sale. Go play CoD or something, I hear that plays itself.

Christ if my kid whined as much as you do I would pack him off to military school.

Which is true for every other entry on that list as well, so I'm not sure what you are getting at. 37% of all traffic was caused by Netflix. By every single metric, Netflix is the largest traffic driver on the entire global internet. So walrus saying that it "Really doesn't have as many viewers as people think" is really a pretty odd statement.

It's bullshit and he references no metrics which is how you know it is. The closest anyone has come is NBC commissioning some idiotic study that had no access to internal Netflix data. Netflix is hugely successful based on objective metrics like its financials, the traffic it drives and so on. His declarations about its quality and success are just him mistakenly projecting his opinions onto others.

Hit a nerve did he?

Your taste in everything sucks by the way.
Taste is subjective. Hence your taste sucks. But yes I have no patience for trolls.

Introspection is not your strong suit apparently.

Anyway - hate or love, whatever. If you like it play it, if you don't, go play something else.

It's really just one troll who tries to derail these because he has nothing to do and wants attention. Most people just adopt this attitude. I didn't care for Diablo 3 but it's come a long way and is closer to Diablo 2, if not surpassing it in several ways thanks to the latest patch.

All they need to do is ship another expansion so we have another layer of maps and this is gold.

Shows how little you guys know about PoE. There is no sync issues anymore they built a little thing called lockstep in and NO ARPG has anything like it - it's glorious.

I don't care which one is "best", I had both on my radar for a very long time, but this is they way it played out like it or not.

D3 is a baby arpg, nothing like d2 and nothing unique about it. PoE is the king daddy, true successor to d2 and filled with innovation. You don't have to agree, it's a fact.


So what you are saying is they have horrible netcode and had to jury rig a way to sync the game?
Reminds me of 'Lag shooting' in Mechwarrior 3. You had to double lead your target to compensate for shitty net code.

He has nothing better to do, POE is such a great game that he sits around here spamming about it, jealous of other people having fun in other games rather than actually playing it.

While disappointing, I'd rather enjoy a well built and robust XCOM experience.

Same here, I would rather they take their time and get it right. The first game was good but had a lot of aspects that felt rushed.

I didn't realize we had so many grandmothers here who couldn't secure a simple Windows installation. Running Windows 10 Enterprise and it took about 3 minutes to lock down. It's a massive improvement over Windows 7 and Windows 8, huge strides in process/memory management, the revised display driver model is fantastic and just the CMD/Powershell improvements would be worth it, let alone all of the other interface improvements. They even got rid of the lame start menu from Windows 8, you can unpin their dumb default apps and its the old in its glory.

Takes all of 3 minutes to accomplish, more time here spent bitching about it than actually doing anything productive.

As word gets out that it's nothing buy spyware you'll probably see a lot of that happening.

With that logic, people will be going from Android and iOS back to dumbphones.

Exactly. Most people don't give two shits, or more accurately are too dumb or uninformed to even know about the phone home shit. When their Windows box turns into a bloated garbage dump 12-18 months from now, they will be cursing their 'slow' PCs and hurrying to upgrade to the next best thing....

Maybe some people took two seconds to read about it and concluded they could disable everything except for a stupid thing that sends a list of installed store apps. I don't even have any store apps, what the fuck do I care? Windows 10 is pretty fucking nice and I'm not going to stay on Windows 7 forever just to satisfy your personal foibles. If you want to be hyper paranoid about it then no one is stopping you but don't act like the rest of us are uninformed for not agreeing.

Learn to pick your battles. Your smartphone is a bigger intrusion into your privacy, its literally broadcasting your location and thanks to wi-fi sniffing and companies using wifi casts to effectively session ID machines, you're being tracked everywhere. Windows 10 isn't even on the radar to people who really care about these things.

Axis wrote on Aug 26, 2015, 23:50:
Obsidian risked nothing, big AAA company, no kickstarter funding, no game. Larian used their own funds as a last ditch effort to form a new IP, and needed some more kickstarted. The gameplay was quite innovative, unlike anything we've seen in the RPG arena, with plenty of physics based combat to boot. It also included a single player global which I *really* enjoyed till the redmasks of the world ruined it.
My points stand, the comparison was made as an good example. I enjoyed both as I've mentioned before, but D:OS was far better. Larian also did not ride the DLC train, Obsidian is already on to the milking the cows part. Moo.

Obsidian isn't a large AAA company, you already got humiliated trying this argument in the past. Publishers don't like Kickstarter, even doing one can affect your ability to negotiate for contracts. They are a project to project developer just like Larian and have been on the verge of bankruptcy several times. Try actually reading about something for a change and stop being so dishonest just to support your own idiotic opinions. Don't get too mad about always being wrong, its just in your nature it seems.

Speaking of milking, isn't D:OS about to release on the new consoles? el oh el. I wonder how long after they start getting that sweet console money before you start whining about their design integrity. How will you reconcile your hypocrisy when they start making decisions that include how the sequel will work with a controller? I give it a year before you're strangely silent on this topic.

Now go back to your sycophantic cheerleading for your little ARPG and let the rest us read this topic in peace.

Few companies will step out and take risks innovating as opposed to flavor of the year mechanics, and no set $$$ amount determines the quality of a game.

D:OS was a innovative risk on a shoestring budget compared to Pillars which was tried and true with millions thrown at it, and D:OS came out on top just as one example.

'Come out on top', I didn't realize we were watching WWE here holy shit that's hilarious. Are you incredibly mistaken or just straight up lying about Kickstarter games here? Original Sin wasn't an innovative risk, its a turn based strategy RPG, not exactly the first of its kind and not even close to Larians first game. Maybe it was a risk but everything is a risk in the gaming industry, welcome to what everyone already knew. It was 70-80% done when they went to Kickstarter and Larian themselves said so in the fucking Kickstarter before you start trying to spin your comment. No one had attempted a serious Baldur's Gate style RPG in years either if you want to talk about taking risks. But that's besides the point because no one cares what did better except for immature people who need to incessantly compare things to make themselves feel better about liking it. Most reasonable people are just happy to get a lot of RPG options and hope success for both games. I could give a fuck less if Pillars of Eternity sold more than Dragon Age Inquisition or Divinity Original Sin, I only care what I thought of the games. That's being an adult, you should try it sometime.

That's a cop out excuse that makes no sense. You have zero control over data dissemination on a closed platform. You have no idea what is leaving. It could be your credit card and personal info, or it could whatever dippy game you played. If anything it makes more sense to keep using an open platform PC where you can observe first hand and customize it to your needs. Fact is people just like to bitch. If they really cared they would put up for real and take the same approach to their cellular and every other device in their life.

Everything I've read on this subject says you are still in control which is what matters to me. I don't care if MS makes it all on by default as long as I can turn it off. When I lose control, that's a different story. So far I'm not seeing anything I can't disable right inside of the setup outside of one orphaned setting that was probably left in by mistake. OS rollouts are complicated and it just came out, they will fix it and when they do I will upgrade.

Maybe it will be a big deal for your parents who don't know how the fuck to use Windows but I doubt it. They are too busy disclosing their vacation plans to potential robbers on Facebook and posting your baby pictures up there for Mark to archive for all eternity.
