A third explosion has happened in the library.

A terrorist is a terrorist. It doesn't matter whether he's a white caucasian US citizen, an Afghani Taliban member, or a green-skinned Martian.

News Comments > Shadowrun Returns DRM Clarified

So, whoever thinks that a game should not have save points (consolitis) and likes evolving characters and loot (all of that was in classic crpgs!), is now a "Joe Bro" and games that give you that are "WoW with guns". I.e., whoever criticizes "SR" touches a nerve here that makes the counter a kind of hilarious overreaction.

But in the end, it's you, the backers, that need to be happy with the game. If you are, good for you. But not everybody else is a Joe Bro who wants every game to be WoW with guns. That's all I'm saying. Good night.

In the PnP version I RARELY recall players looting bodies unless they were looking for a specific object. This is actually in theme with the PnP game it's based on. If you are looking for WoW with guns in essence then correct, you are not the target audience.

Yeah, exacly. Right now I'm replaying Baldur's Gate. It has loot, you know. That makes it WoW with guns, right? Rrrright.

I suppose if I said 'apples and oranges' as a reply that would go over your head as well and expect a nonsensical reply to that?

I couldn't top your nonsensical response calling games with loot "WoW with guns". Fallout, Baldur's Gate, Secret of the Silver Blades, the Krynn games... Yeah, you sure know a lot about (old) games.

I love loot (i.e. seeing my character evolving, becoming stronger), and I love to save whenever and wherever I want to (well, outside of fights and cut scenes, that is). So, if they want me to buy this game, they better add this. If not, they lost a sale. Maybe I'm not the target audience for this game.

Because Hollywood hates Mel now because of his DUI and his antijewish tirades.
It's an Australian movie (production).

That needs to sell LOTS of tickets in the US, where Mel has become persona non grata for a lot of people. The same people, of course, have no problem with ex-convicts, rapists, and so on in movies.

Galifianakis refused to film with Mel who was set to do a cameo for a Hangover movie. The same Galifianakis had no problem whatsoever to film with Mike Tyson. Furious2

News Comments > Last Months of LucasArts; Star Wars Battlefront III Footage?

How often did we see leaked "Battlefront 3" footage from DIFFERENT developers? I call it a bluff.
I loved LA back in the day for their adventures, Dark Forces/Jedi Knight, and especially TIE-Fighter (X-Wing was great, too, X-Wing Alliance and X-Wing vs. TIE-Fighter were alright). But that LA died a looooong time ago. What Disney closed now was a Zombie. It maybe still looked a bit like LA, but smelt funny.

storytelling IN WORDS instead of letting the player experience it. Sometimes it felt like reading a book instead of playing a game.

Okay, backed this although I could not get into Planescape Torment. Too much storytelling in words instead of letting the player actually play it. *sigh* But I though this needed to be backed, because I am hoping against hope that inXile might bribe their way into buying the Baldur's Gate rights. I know, I know... But it's just the hope, you know? Baldur's Gate 3 - The Kickstarter. $5,000,000 almost guaranteed.

I'd also like Disneys stance on a non-molested Original Trilogy release on blu.

Disney didn't buy the rights for the first 6 movies. 20th Century Fox retained the rights to those.

I heard fox had A New Hope, but that's it.

Hmmm... Huh

Guess it's something we'll be seeing a Court Wars about. Fox vs. Disney?

Zenimax: So, how is Doom 4 coming along?
id: Great. We got this new engine, now with teratextures, and it's awesome. Wanna play the alpha?
Zenimax: Sure.
[A few minutes later.]
Zenimax: What the hell? It's dark. Everything is dark. Pitch black, actually. Where are the great graphics?
id: They're there, we promise!
Zenimax: Okay, so, where's the flashlight?
id: What? No no no, we want this to be and stay dark and creepy.
Zenimax: WHAT?! So you made a great engine, but nobody will be able to see what you did with it?
id: Yeah, the player love that. We have experience, we know!
Zenimax: And what was that, where I went into that small EMPTY room, and as soon as I turned around, looking for the door out, the demon materialised out of nowhere behind me?
id: Yeah, wasn't that great? And did you notice that even in the pc port, everything makes you feel that you should plug in a game pad to play the game? Aren't you proud of us?
Zenimax: You're dead. D-E-A-D.

Without keyboard and mouse controls, the PS4 is not even close to being ANY gaming PC at all despite its other hardware.
