Nope. Wrong. I don't understand. Plenty of games out there that are PC only and do/did extremely well. Wasteland 2 for example. And tons of other indie games.

You're comparing Witcher 3 to Wasteland 2 and other indie games? C'mon, it doesn't take that much insight to realize that the budget for Witcher 3 was many times greater than the budget for Wasteland 2 and other indie games.

News Comments > Blade & Soul Coming West This Winter

If it's taking them more than three years to localize this, NCSoft must already be anticipating that it will not generate that much revenue for them.

The website's main 'selling points' for the game are extremely laughable:
"Become a Powerful Fighter!
Glide, sprint and jump across a visually stunning & unique world!
Avenge the Fallen.
Master the Art of War!"

So there's almost nothing to differentiate this from the mountain of other MMORPGs that have been released to date. Why should anyone be excited about this?

Yeah, heard that it got universally good (re)views from the critics. So did Prometheus prior to release, and look how that turned out...

Prometheus had no where near 100% before its June 8, 2012 release. Prior to that day it received 38 total splats out of around 120 reviews which equals out to a rating of 68%. Not sure if you are remembering that correctly unless you checked the rating quite early before many reviews were in.

Mad Max on the other hand stands at 1 splat out of 94 reviews the day before its release. The next 30 some reviews would all have to be splats to drop it down to the same rating as Prometheus. I think it's safe to say that Mad Max has been much better received and enjoyed than Prometheus.

I'm definitely looking forward to it seeing it this weekend. The first trailer I saw of the movie with its classical music and choral score completely turned me off (I think it was the theatrical teaser trailer). Then I saw the second trailer and my opinion of the movie did a 180 because the trailer's musical score gives it a completely different feel. It's amazing how much of a difference music can make in trailers and movies.

Wow, that actually looks like it will be a hell of a good time. I never bothered to pay much attention to this because I assumed since it was tied to a movie franchise it would be shit. I guess when a competent studio is developing it and the publisher doesn't push it out the door too early, they can actually make a great looking game. I'll definitely be keeping my eye on this one from now on.

Judging by NCSoft's past, it's more likely they will shut the game down (Tabula Rasa, Auto Assault, City of Heroes). It's seems that they are only willing to turn their own in-house games into F2P (Lineage 2, Aion).

Who decides to purchase video cards based upon their specifications alone? Don't people rely on benchmarks to make that decision? Did the benchmarks change? Nope! It's still a very high performing card and a great value for the money. To ask for a full refund on a card that performs just as well as the benchmarks showed is just ludicrous.

And here I bought two of them. Have not yet run into issues that are not general issues experienced by everyone with certain games or configurations (i.e. SLI). But I am sure at some point I will, when games start using/requiring close to 4GB.

By the time games start fully utilizing 4 GB of RAM (probably years from now thanks to the PS4 and XBOX One), you will have already purchased an even better video card, thus making the whole point moot.

I bought Empire Total War when it was released and all it did was crash... and they never fixed it. Even today when I start it up, I can't even get through the first 10 minutes without it crashing. I paid full price for that pos game. The forums were always filled with people complaining about the same crash... that they never fixed.

Empire came out almost six years ago. You're still using the same computer?

Streaming games from your Xbone to your PC. Woo. PC gaming is so important to them they found a way to turn your PC into a monitor for your Xbox. Yay PC* gaming! Buy Xbox!

*Not actually a PC

Woweeeee! I can see this being useful in about one or two rare situations, but since I don't own an XBONE it's entirely useless to me!

I am glad to see that they will be offering Windows 10 for free. I really hope you can download a full copy instead of an upgrade to make fresh installs easier.

No idea if this game is going to be any good or not, but this is one of the greatest KS pitch videos I've ever seen. Kudos to them.

I concur. Definitely the best I have ever seen.

We shall see come next Wednesday if this is actually true. I like Windows 10, but I'm skeptical of any efforts to make it the best gaming OS because of their past failed efforts. I can understand why it would be a difficult position to be in when any improvements for gaming on their OS could potentially impact sales of their console.

Between my PC and PS3, I'm up to 60+ games that I have yet to play at any length or I have yet to finish. Too many games and too little time. I made a vow to myself that I wouldn't buy anymore until I knock that list down by at least half.

If people really thought NK did it, people are off their friggin' rockers. I mean look at their god damn power grid, its almost non-existent.

So you're telling me that you need to live in a first world country in order to hack computers and networks? Here I was, under the impression that all it took was a computer, the internet, and someone who knows what they are doing. Apparently you need an entire country's infrastructure in order to do so and first world country at that!

Task wrote on Dec 18, 2014, 13:34:
Meanwhile the U.S. was never punished for its war crimes of purposely bombing millions of civilians in the Korean war, which is the exact reason NK is a closed society with a paranoid dynasty.

Yes, because certainly at that time the US military had precision guided missiles in order to avoid civilian deaths! But then they turned around and carpet bombed cities, just like everyone else did during WWII. These actions somehow led to the Soviet Union creating a communist government in the north and appointing Kim Il-sung as its president, all before the war even started! I don't know how bombing civilians in a soon to be war influenced the formation of NK in the past, but it must the US's fault! It's always the US's fault!

Ok, first off there's nothing stupid or outlandish about it. The US government has a regular habit of lying to its citizens. This is documented in great detail, no less than by the government itself. Second, you're only proving our point anwyay. Feds have now concluded the perpetrators were from NK? And you know this to be true how? From a government that constantly lies to you, always has, and always will, and you're saying I'm stupid? Are you willfully ignorant or a product of inbreeding?

Nah, I'm right there with you about the US government lying about plenty of things, and a lot of serious things at that. But what I don't understand is how the parties involved actually benefit from it. Why would the US government lie about NK hacking Sony Pictures? The NK Government called the movie an 'act of war', so why is it any surprise that they actually carried through with their threats? Please, tell me your entire theory. I'm quite curious.

Why not? A multi-billion dollar group of global intelligence agencies yet no one can find the people who did it? All the claim is it's "credible evidence". Yeah sure, let's all just take their word at face value because they'd never lie to us or anything, or have an agenda or anything. Unless I see arrests and confessions - and even then I'm still exceedingly skeptical - it's just so much bullshit. Are there bad people in the world? Sure, but this sort of thing - much less the reaction to it - strikes me as absurd, if not outright manufactured to precipitate such a response.

Sorry, but your outlandishly stupid conspiracy theory was just quashed:

"Federal investigators have now connected the hacking of Sony Pictures Entertainment Inc. to North Korea, a U.S. official said Wednesday, though it remained unclear how the federal government would respond to a break-in that exposed sensitive documents and ultimately led to terrorist threats against moviegoers."

To me it sounds like Gabe is saying that from now on 'anything will go' according to this quote, "Steam is about creating tools for content creators and customers."

In that case, Destructive Creations needs to up the ante by allowing players to rape their victims as well, even when they are dead! I'd love to see what Gabe thinks about that.

Now I'm suspicious. Is Carmike secretly owned and operated by the North Korean government?

On a serious note, it's disappointing to see them being cowed by the hacking activities of the North Korean government or some of their sympathizers. Carmike is taking the easy way out and simply giving in to the Guardians of Peace's demands.

I know that if I don't like it I don't need to play it but putting stuff like that out there is like poisoning minds.

Freedom without responsibility doesn't work. We should aspire to more than pandering to the lowest common denominator. Anything for a buck, Gabe?

I concur with both these sentiments. It's quite bizarre that they pulled 'Seduce Me' from Greenlight, which is a game about enticing NPCs to have sex with your character. Yet they turn around and reinstate a game about killing innocent civilians in extremely graphic and disturbing ways. So the message I get from Gabe is that sex is fucked up and we aren't allowed to virtually partake in it, but virtually putting a gun into a screaming woman's mouth and blowing her brains out is completely fine!!! Confused
