I wonder what sort of outcome I could get with one of those electric George Foreman dealies

Ah, electric George Foreman.

I always assumed he was nuclear powered?

On a different note, has anyone ever seen (or played) this HL2 graphics mod?

Because it looks fucking AMAZING.

Whoa, that looks sweet! Alyx looks...cold.

Ya, not too keen on the new Alyx model but the rest looks really good.

Haha, you really are silly.

I think they could have done more to keep people playing between expansion packs.

I would have liked to see some more endgame content as well. Maybe completing all 3 paths of a dungeon opens up a boss zone, and completing a specific number of boss zones opens up dragon battles? That would be kinda fun - the individual paths are only 30 minutes in most cases.

And in addition:

One piece of hardware to adopt the X brand and work in tandem with the next Xbox is a 7-inch gaming tablet called the X-Surface, which will allegedly not be a Windows 8 or Windows RT device.

*facepalm* ...here we go again...

...Surface Pro might be alright but for $999, fuuuck that.

Yeah, actually that was my final conclusion as well. The base version is ok but limited, while the Pro could be pretty nice but at $999 who cares?

Honestly, a MS tablet running Windows and Office should be a slam dunk - the potential market is gigantic. But somehow they always manage to pull defeat from the jaws of victory.

People can list dozens of failed Microsoft products and branding efforts, the Xbox is the only consumer related entry that people don't loathe.

I was looking at a Surface tablet the other day and found myself thinking it was pretty good. I actually had to pause to think that this might be a Microsoft product I didn't hate. It was really surprising.

Report: Next Xbox to simply be named 'Xbox'.

I see MS Marketing hasn't lost it's touch...

I was hoping the new platform would be more heavily targeted towards adults. Then they could've called it the XXXBoxxx.

Then again, given the size of the controllers they could probably do that anyway.

Loving the Necro tweaks they did since I last played, PVP survivability is even better. I hope the new storyline is a pretty big one encompassing a bunch of different zones.

- DADES - This is a signature of my name, enjoy!

^ I've never seen someone try so hard to keep the make believe alive...

Logging in and reading the forums is easy enough to know exactly what's going on (or not) with GW2.

Aren't you the guy who went back six weeks just to show everyone how you won an argument with Dades? I've never seen you do anything on this forum other than troll him. Uh... get a room?

I'm loving this game - a quarter of the way to a Legendary weapon and really having a good time with the road to it. Very fun.

Seems many here at BluesNews believes trolling is when someone speaks truth or opinion which isn't what a little circle of friends want to hear.

I'm not afraid to call people on bullshit - you type it and it's bullshit it's your own idiocy, not mine for pointing it out.


No, we're not afraid to hear other opinions. However, your contributions are not really valuable.

If you want to be taken seriously, be more adult. For example, don't go back six weeks to dig up a post just to win an ephemeral and meaningless internet argument. That kind of thing is really immature.

Pretty simple formula for success these days.

1. Long beta (a year or so) with sustained player-base.
2. competent developers who listen to said playerbase.

If these two happen, the game will succeed. If not, it's bound to fail.

Last MMO with that formula was, love it or hate it, WoW.

GW2 did it as well and are still doing so after release. Their devs post on the official forums frequently, answering questions and taking suggestions.

Not sure I could do that, for any MMO. Rabid fanbases for those games - people spend years (sometimes decades!) playing them.

Such unfounded negativity...

I'm looking forward to this.

Unfounded? Really? It's a Skyrim skin for WoW.

Honestly, I don't think so at all. I play MMOs but hate WoW. This looks like a persistent version of Morrowind/Oblivion/Skyrim - I think it looks really terrific.

And honestly, all MMOs are not the same. FFXI/FFXIV/Aion are slow grinders (ugh), WoW is cartoonish high-number raiding (not my thing at all), and GW2 is beautiful, laid-back and casual-friendly (love it).

It's just a question of what TES Online will bring to the table in terms of gameplay. Will it be new and fun, or not?

Will have to be good to drag me away from GW2 but it looks really, really promising.

Wait what? How can I play this when I haven't even started The Witcher 2 yet? Or Deus Ex? Or Skyrim? OMG

I need to find more spare time - may need to fake my own death. How to do that? Well, there is this old ring, and those elves and hobbits will believe any old rumor. Hmm...

Warboobs.

Picture on the cover of well-endowed babes in camo berets and not much else, riding in a jeep and pointing at a tank full of sharks with lazer guns on their heads.

Most unappealing name for a game since Wargasm? You decide. Makes me think of 13 year olds with too much testosterone.

Should have called it Warpig, with the opposition as Masters of Reality . Low-slung Ozzy / Sabbath vibe, oooh yeah.

I wanted to get Xenoblade Chronicles last year but Gamestop bought exclusive rights and then distributed a total of like 10 copies throughout the American continent. Those 10 copies now sell on EBay for $150. It's actually easier to get a copy from Japan.

Typical Gamestop cluelessness. If there's a bad decision to make, they go ahead and make it. I don't shop there anymore.
