Basil Fawlty: Is there something wrong?
German Guest: Will you stop talking about the war?
Basil Fawlty: Me? You started it.
German Guest: We did not!
Basil Fawlty: Yes, you did. You invaded Poland.

Fawlty Towers - pure genius!

Learning German - Lesson 1


Hey, it's been a long time since I had opportunity to speak it.
Always this damn German with its words that sound just like another word and then mean something different.

Brush up your German for the Berlin expansion.

Oy, Kraut, where's the enemy?

Ich bin ein Berliner!

...said the Prez. No, not you, Presidente for Life. And not you either, Prez.

A Berliner would say: Ick bin een Berliner. Right, Sho?

Haven't bought Shadowrun Returns yet. I will as soon as they add the promised save game feature.

You see another ship floating in space.
You enter the ship.
A member of your crew gets killed. You can't do nothing about it and didn't know this could happen.
This happens 3 times in one playthrough. You exit the game. You uninstall it.
Why did you do it another 2 times after it failed the first time? lol.

Either way its a rogue-like, if you can even make it to the boss you've done very well

Have you ever played the game? Because you can find useful stuff in those space ships. And very often you depend on that stuff.

So you want all reward and no risk?

Yes, Beamer, exactly. I want a button saying "press to win". /facepalm

So, it depends on your crew whether you should board those spacecrafts? Okay, my bad, didn't know this. When exactly does the game teach you this? Played almost through and never got that tip/tutorial by the game.

Well, it's just not my kind of game. I don't want to depend on luck too much, because my luck level is always close to 0.

I guess my understanding of a fun gameplay differs from the one this "throwback space coin flipping game" offers. Sorry, tried to like it, but this part of the game is just plainly annoying for me.

I never play WC 1 (played Dune 1/2 back then), but WC 2 was fun. So I'm all for making them work with Win 7/8 (32 & 64 bit). It would be great if they could "mod" their own game to support widescreen and higher resolution.

Quality over quantity! Next: Burial at Sea Episode 2 will give you the 20 best minutes of gameplay EVAH! YAY!

I think they know that making a good single player game takes time and is expensive. So they they decided to turn Burial at Sea into two "episodes". That way they can fulfill the "season pass" with less effort and make some easier money. Yeah, I know, I'm evil but that's what I think. Bioshock Infinite was a good game, though, just not as great as so many people think it is.

If Elop should become the supreme leader of MS, than the xbox could soon be history (and Bing, too).

Bloomberg

"Besides emphasizing Office, Elop would be prepared to sell or shut down major businesses to sharpen the company’s focus, the people said. He would consider ending Microsoft’s costly effort to take on Google with its Bing search engine, and would also consider selling healthy businesses such as the Xbox game console if he determined they weren’t critical to the company’s strategy, the people said."

With Elop, there might be no xbox 1.2.

I'm all for Squadron 42, because I'm afraid that you have to invest like $100 and more to survive leaving any station in the MMO part of the game.

The story I read over on Polygon said they're having trouble optimizing the game engine. It's not playable on anything lower than a 680, and even a Titan struggles to break 20 FPS.

This.

And you read the rest of the thread?

edit: I guess you could be joking as well.



Sleep deprivation is fun.

But you're right! 20 fps because of the heavy work the gpu has to do because of the antialiasing. All those round heads result in the gpu overheating. It's called Professor Chaos' China Syndrome!

"we are working to help these talented people [that we put out of work] find other opportunities within EA [like gardening, housekeeping, shoeshining]"

It's all there, read between the lines!

I'm sorry for the guys, but don't think we lost a good game. Much more, this is a chance for a C&C singleplayer revival!
