Why isn't the government going after say... Perfect Worlds? You can purchase keys for cash to open boxes that COULD have X Y or Z in them?

Did 2 beta's. It is a pretty decent game once you get past a bit of a learning curve (not going to say steep).

Read the reviews and watch a few let's plays where they start at the very beginning of the game.

Everyone does it. Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft (units shipped for example).

But again like WoW, if you have 10 million active players, that's nothing to sneeze about.

Has ANYONE not noticed the likeness of the Crew with the CREW from Bioware's The Old Republic Eternal Fleet campaign?

Black guy with dreads, blonde woman who is second in command, Krogan/HK-47 unit, etc.

And I hope you get to change the looks of the main characters cause the guy looks like he's been caught in headlights, and the female is always smiling (go watch the video where she disarms a guy).

I'm soooo ready for more Mass Effect, but when you have to sell your game with a trailer of two characters getting it on.....

Fucktard in car with camera never gets out to go check on the driver.

*edit* my bad, didn't think camera was in a police car (usually they have other info on the screen for police vehicles).

But there are two cops? You can't radio that in on the radio unit officers wear?

The closed alpha was pretty good, HIGHLY looking forward to the Beta and release.
That encouraging considering it received pretty underwhelming praise at E3. Glad to hear good experiences with it.

Take it with a grain of salt. Half Elf goes for anything with hunks in plaid.

You show me a guy with a beard, military training and knee pads and I'll show ya one happy Half Elf!

That being said. If all you see is Far Cry then that's all you'll see. If anything I'd say this is more The Division (different story and skills of course), set on a much bigger scale with vehicles (and less Dark Zone if any).
What really appeals to me is two things. 1) 4 player co-op (which was a blast with a team all on the same page as in Assassin's Creed Unity), and 2) I can stealth the entire mission (granted probably only in co-op).

As I said the Beta will be 'the tell', but to get a 4 person team and literally GHOST an entire mission will be the high bar for me.

Now Elf, lets not forget the most important part if your going ot compare it to The Division. No Bullet Sponging. Thats what sets this apart from Division and much more.


I said "more The Division" then Far Cry. As they have stated in previous videos (the dev's) on hard mode 1 bullet can kill the player, and you can kill in 1 shot. The Division (and I'm going to say Destiny) are MMO's with shooter qualities, and I personally am not a fan of Bullet Sponges.

BTW if people have so much hatred of 3rd person shooters why do they play games like Metroid/Castlevania/Megaman? They are 3rd person shooters on a single plane right?

Farcry: Ghost Recon,

yeh exactly - lookin forward to this one for sure

might be one of those rare day one purchase.. beta will tell me more

Only issues I really came across that bugged me was no cover system like The Division, and vehicles driving was a little wonky (like Sleeping Dogs), so if the Beta holds up will be a day 1 purchase.

Rolling Stone interview with lead singer/song writer Stephen Heaslip of the band, 'Blue & The Chili Bandidos':

RS: Stephen, your band had taken a break after the last album 'Meat Sweats Musings' and the successful tour titled 'Manstovia: Invasion From The East'. Critics claimed that such success couldn't be duplicated. After years of time off, the band is back and ready to conquer the world again with it's new album 'A Dash of This, and a Generous Portion of Blues'. What makes you believe that lightning can and will strike twice?

You forgot an album Kitchen Coffee Calamity

I bought AC Syndicate several months back but stopped early because I didn't understand the Assassin/Templar modern day story. So I decided to go through the AC series beginning from AC2 (had played AC1 before). Unfortunately, the controls were so bad for AC2 that I was forced to watch on Youtube. I'm presently on Black Flag. I thought each AC game got progressively better. However, BF is fantastic fun. The pirate ship mechanics is top-notch! Definitely a 9 out of 10.

You think AC2's controls are bad? But play AC 2, then the 2.5 and 2.6 versions. You'll want AC3 for the arch of Desmond's story. THEN play Black Flag or Rogue (not sure which is in the timeline first), but play BOTH of them before Unity, because where Rogue ends, Unity starts, and then play Syndicate.
I'm still trying to force myself to finish Syndicate.

What I never understood was when you have a game like Diablo II that has a sizable community still playing it, why would you change such a successful design? Probably because you thought you could do it better? well Jay now we know you have no ability to make it better, it still has not approached the level that Diablo II had.

So here is my guess at what happened with Diablo 3.

Blizzard isn't the most original company when it comes to games. They typically borrow from another genre, and put the Blizzard polish on it to make it better then what was before it.
The problem is they did this to themselves with Diablo 3. And the problem really was that Diablo 2 wasn't in need of a overhaul.

But I also remember reading somewhere that the longer you work on a game/project the harder it is to step back and look at the project with fresh eyes. So after 8 years (christ almighty) of working on a game, and years of seeing 1 version of it, you may not enjoy it from a gameplay standpoint and make more changes, and more changes and more changes, etc.

D3 wasn't bad (the expansion was pretty good), but the "new car smell" is WAY gone, and the Season's are not a good enough air freshener for D3 as it currently is.

I will disagree. Hand Eye coordination is key to such things.

Example: (yeah I'm a sample size of 1). Last time I fired a weapon was at my brother in law's bachelor party, shooting clay pigeons with shotguns at a local gun club. That was when I was roughly 28-30. Before that the last time I fired a weapon was probably a hunting rifle at a range when I was 10 or 11.
Now between 11 and 28 beyond virtual weapons and a shitload of video/computer games I'd had no weapons training or practice. So at the bachelors party (never fired at moving targets before or using a shotgun), I had a 95% accuracy rating. Beating out my uncle the Vietnam vet, and my brother in law and his father who tend to regularly shoot clay pigeons.
