Yum, the FFXIV expansion looks really fun. Good thing I don't have time to play MMORPGs anymore, or I'd get sucked back in for sure. XIV is really pretty great.

I don't really see the point of a preorder when all my games come from Steam - it's not like I need a CD/DVD anymore. Plus the backlog on my games library is kind of big.

Much better to just let the game come out, read the reviews, and then either buy it if it's a must-have, or put it down to buy later in a sale.

My girlfriends mother is a vet who sometimes gets called out by the county to look at stuff like that when they get trapped animals and etc. I texted her the pic and she said its probably a tumor, apparently there is a lot of fibromatosis in animals in the wild.

Yes, I'm a veterinarian as well, and agree with her - it looks like a benign growth. Much too big to be a tick, and too smooth and rounded to be an abcess. Probably not directly dangerous to health, but is obscuring vision and could get infected. If it were a domestic animal, you'd remove it.

I played a ton of this when it came out, but that was 3 years ago. How come it took so long for the first expansion? There was very little endgame, so the original playerbase has long since moved on.

Holy shit, dude, eat a cheeseburger Hobbit or something!

The cholesterol levels are too high for that particular meat, I'm afraid. Plump and delicious, but not heart healthy.

Elves, on the other hand, are pure lean protein. It's just catching the little blighters from a standing start.

Jeepers, 195 and 166 lb for the average US male and female adult respectively - that's really heavy and honestly carries a lot of health risks. America needs to go on a diet!

If that is accurate it means that I weigh less than the average American woman even though I am taller than the average American man.

Same here - I'm 5'11" and 135lb.

Then again, us ringwraiths are composed mainly of ectoplasm, so it's all relative.

I was going to report that Heroes of Might and Magic 3 Android version is really pretty good. But after this news item, I think maybe I won't bother.

iTunes (a piece of software that qualifies as an annex of tech hell in and of itself)

Yeah, I fucking hate that program, and only use it for syncing purposes.


Same here. My music collection is now managed using PC and Android software, and I refuse to even install iTunes.

Am I the only one to find those Fallout screebshots unexciting? But I understand they come out of a trailer...

I think many feel the same way. I'm certainly not feeling the love. It really does look like its just an expansion for FO3, hell maybe even RAGE. I guess we'll see what's what when it arrives but for the first time this may not be a day one purchase for me.

I could never get into FO3 and FO:NV - although I loved Oblivion and Skyrim. It's the setting. But this one doesn't grab me at all, and I think the graphics have something to do with that in addition to the setting. Just not enthusiastic about it on first look.

Wow, this looks great! I didn't realize it was InXile that is the developer.

I'm already signed up for TToN, and this one seems like it'll be getting my money as well.

I'll take bots over the average server inhabitant any day. They don't grief, they don't team stack, they don't rage quit, they don't idle, they don't sing into the mic, they just play the game.

This 1000% percent. No bots, no sale.


Same here. BF1942 was very fun in MP, but offline practice with bots really helped in the early stages.

Anyone notice the archway at 0:44 looks exactly like the ones in The Hive in Sigil (Planescape:Torment)? I bet that's not an accident.

I signed on to this one during the Kickstarter and am glad I did - it really looks promising.

News Comments > CDPR on Witcher 3 Graphics Downgrades

Honestly, this sounds perfectly reasonable to me. They had a great-looking build, but then had to scale back a little once they overlaid it onto a huge open world. According to the reviews it still looks amazing. Sounds like part of the development process and I don't have a problem with that at all, especially given the stellar reception across the board.

My only gripe is that I'm wanting to play this but am currently in the middle of The Shivering Isles, which is probably the most entertaining DLC I've ever gotten into. Decisions, decisions.

This looks like a lot of fun - reminds me a little of the original UT and that's definitely not a bad thing.

I don't usually go for twitch online team shooters but I'll probably pick it up.

Is it online only, or does it have bots for offline practice?

I've been looking at the reviews of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Wow. Is it really that good?

I just finished Skyrim (couple hundred hours) and am looking around for a new fix.
