Not sure if it's just me or my taste in games lately, but finding it very MEH.

Pretty much everyone felt that way, and it was compounded with the then pre-patch combat mechanics with the inability to do simple things like dodge. Even post-patch with dodging, it still hasn't made combat any more fun or engaging.
And the three sets of on-disc DLC!

It's interesting that they can break down their costs for particular parts of the game that specifically.
I think Brian Mitsoda knows quite well how much his gaming industry colleagues are willing to work for on contract. I trust this game to launch more than any other kickstarter so far.

The DigitalMindSoft Men of War games have been good, the Best Way ones have been pretty bad. Although Best Way co-developed the first Men of War, which was great, and they also made Soldiers: Heroes of World War II, the first game in the series, which was great. But they ALSO made Faces of War, the second game in the series, which sucked.

So in conclusion this will probably (but not definitely) suck.
Faces of War didn't suck, it was a carbon copy of S:HoWW2 with an actual working internet co-op mode in. Are you going off metacritic or something?

I guess it was only a matter of time before the DLC/nickel-and-diming mentality hit Kickstarter too.

Yeah, who the fuck uses stretch goals?

Er, wait...

The entire post from the poster name down doesn't make sense. zombiefan bashing potentially good/great zombie game stretch goals adding more goodness/greatness. WTF?

How dare the people influence the process of democracy? How dare they?!?!
That's not sarcasm in the halls of legislature. Otherwise there would be more than one in four dumbasses supporting their legislators.

Or is it one in ten now?

Man, I hope this is good. I have no reason to think it won't be, but fingers crossed anyway.

The only thing not good so far is that it's just not released yet. That's a good sign.

How was this Kotaku writer not aware that the Payday devs were working with the L4D devs? Seriously? Did their own site not cover that story?

Just...seriously?

Surely they changed their advertising to avoid slamming Windows. I mean, it's not like they ran TV ads for years making sometimes tenuous attacks. They must be softening their stance towards their competitors.

Nothing to do with Mac viruses at all. Not at all.

Apple is just a big ol friendly company now!

So punish IE users who still use a perfectly good computer that's just too slow to use a more modern browser?
The "buy a newer computer or pay more" tax?

Older computers are perfectly capable of running modern browsers. My sister's old ass 1.6GHz Celeron w/ 640MB of RAM runs Firefox and IE9.

Anyone running IE 7 and lower needs to upgrade regardless if it's expensive to code websites for. MS no longer supports them, which means no security updates, which means they're systems are vulnerable.

Putting a simple notice on websites warning users that their browser is outdated and my not work on the site probably doesn't get taken serious by lazy computer users that don't keep their shit up to date, but if it's going to cost them more money I bet they'll take a few minutes to update.
How is that piece of celery still running???

Relativism doesn't require that you accept everything, it just requires that you accept your morality is *your* morality only and isn't inherently superior to someone else's because it's rubberstamped by a god.
There's at least two billion deaf ears that that logical argument falls upon.

Regardless of how you feel about D3, a 230% rise in sales should be enough to shut those fucking PC and Piracy doomsayers up for a bit.
Shocked that it was ONLY 230% rise on the PC end, considering it sold so damn many copies. You'd think it would blow the average completely out of the water.

But does it work on win 7 64 bit?

I haven't seen much about Steam pulling a GoG and making older games compliant with new OS's.
Pretty sure it runs just fine (tough Unreal engine). Probably need to meddle with some settings to make it shine like it can, though. Been a while since doing that manually with a first-gen Unreal engine game...

News Comments > Citizens Bank Sues Curt Schilling
4. Re: Citizens Bank Sues Curt Schilling Jun 14, 2012, 22:32 Bet
 
Court documents indicate Schilling also personally guaranteed a $1.5 million line of credit from Middlesex Savings Bank of Natick. He also used his personal gold coin collection to help obtain a loan from Bank Rhode Island, a unit of Brookline Bancorp. in Brookline, for an unspecified amount, according to records.

In all, Schilling told the Providence Journal last month, he guaranteed $12 million in loans for the company, in addition to investing $38 million directly.


How much did he get paid as pitcher, again?

What the hell, it sounds like your minimap is like twice the size of mine, are you playing on a 30"?

The minimap scales to any resolution. Changing the minimap size is a pretty basic feature in most hack and slash games these days. Some people don't like playing with default keybindings either. Ideally I like seeing as little of the user interface as possible.
Ahhh I finally see, the map itself is taking up a huge corner of my widescreen monitor, but it's also zoomed in really far. Gives me the effect that it's tiny because it's showing such little information, and mostly out of prime eyeshot so I look through it/ignore it. It could be smaller and show the same amount just as easily (it would look a ton better too).

Argh it bothers me now too and I don't know why.
