WTF? That Rome2 'article' started my torrent client?
Happens a lot to me on Blues when I browse from my phone. Don't have Noscript or any other nice plugins there. I just cancel adding the torrent and move on though. Haven't had any issues yet aside from the annoyance. Not sure where the torrents are coming from though.

A shitty control mechanism that is objectively inferior for certain types of games (read: games requiring a decent degree of precision) is a pretty good reason to favor the PC.

Krahulik is right. He should have never bent to any group (I don't care what group or what cause)... That's his style, that's Penny-Arcade's style, they don't need to shape their material. If someone has a problem with it they're free to stop being fans.

If you look hard enough for something to be offended by, you can certainly find it. The whole dickwolves thing was just ridiculous. Makes me want to buy one of the Dickwolves shirts they were selling, just to further enrage those that want to be enraged.

Looks like it's gonna be P2W, at least for backers. Maybe it won't turn out that way, but it looks like it for now. Will definitely be waiting for lots of reviews before getting into this.

At least some people wised up and avoided Saints Row IV. Horrible game.

What's so horrible about it? I'm having a hilarious co-op adventure with my friend in it so far.

I'm actually a bit saddened Lost Planet 3 didn't make this list; I just beat it and it's a surprisingly fun game. There are one or two issues, but the singleplayer component is WAY better than any of it's predecessors - they took a whole new approach to it.

He seems to be some sort of SR4-specific troll here. That or he's just off his meds and fixated on that game as the source of the world's ills.

Huffington Post to ban anonymous comments.
While anonymity does breed trolls, it also breeds more accurate criticism and comments.
Unfortunately it breeds vastly more of the former than the latter.

That said, I agree about the need for anonymity. They just need a better system for moderating their forums.

Yeah, there's no way any government employees would be in it just for the money, right? Especially not the leadership. That would never happen.

You missed my point that nobody, gov or outsourced, should have root access ;p
Yeah, that kind of undermines the story about him being some uber-hacker, or even that the government systems had "tripwires and burglar alarms". He didn't need to worry about any defenses because he had complete access. He just has to jedi-mind-trick some log files, which probably weren't regularly monitored anyway. They'd just use them after an incident for forensic purposes.

Also thought it was kind of ironic that this story is based on leaked info from people who weren't authorized to talk about this stuff :-/

Why is it people enjoy playing a thug? I think you need a warped personality to write a game like that and to play it.

The 80's called and wants their Church Lady back.

Oz seems to reliably pop in to give us a good finger-wagging for any game like this.

Too many scientists are spinning the data and experiments to fit their pre-conceived notions rather than allowing their research to shape their conclusions which has also helped weaken the public's trust in climate science. It has gotten too political an issue to trust either side and finding what I consider to be an objective source is getting very difficult.
Examples? Is there any evidence of this outside of conservative punditry, where they can pass the claim off as opinion?

Watched a bit of it - not very impressed I guess....just looks like more of the same. I hate to say it, but....oh well. Also, the guy playing sucks.

To me it looks like more of the same, but better, which is exactly what I want from SR games. But yeah, the guy playing does suck.

They're so devastated they voted themselves another raise.

The only reason they're flip-flopping on the NSA right now is because they're worried about the 2014 elections. A lot of incumbents are in danger of getting voted out on their ass. The second they've secured another 4 or 6 year term, they go right back to saying how necessary it will be to spy on everyone.

The only way to get rid of these fucking clowns is to VOTE ALL THE FUCKING INCUMBENTS OUT OF OFFICE.

Creston
The problem is that decent people don't run for office. You kind of have to be rather sociopathic to do it. You'll be tarred for everything they can possibly dig up on you. Your family will be hounded and snooped on. You'll be massively outspent by opponents funded by the industries they're beholden to, and therefore ultimately lose anyway. I know I'd be completely unelectable in this country.

A quick look at the forums there leads me to believe this game has some serious balance issues as well as whatever P2W issues it may have. The stuff in the FAQs was fairly vague about what could be purchased vs. what you have to find in-game.

Screw waiting! If you don't have SR3, you should buy it now!

The reason we have to wait a month is because retailers won't let publishers release digital versions early.

I've heard that the game features no inventory. Not sure it's the kind of game I want.

I believe there's inventory, but no looting of corpses. Which I'm okay with, since usually on a run you shouldn't have time to stop and roll the guards for loot.

Yeah, I remember them talking about that. Basically it was for balance, since they wanted to put you up against serious corp hardware, but it would be too easy if you could just kill a dude and take his rocket launcher or whatever

I still hate the stylized Orks. They just look fucking ridiculous and it really shatters the immersion. Everything else looks great though. Maybe someone will build new models for them with the editor - which I also cannot wait to check out.

What's everyone going first? I'm pretty torn. I'll prolly go Shammy, but Decker and Street Sammy are calling me too!

Edit: Oh yeah, forgot they have Riggers too. Wonder how viable they'll be in this game.

I'm pretty sure I'm gonna go decker first... but street sammy is really tempting too! Aww.. it don't mattter... I'll be playing the hell out of this for months I think. I'll play them all!
