Well from what is shown you're really not in a mob, just getting revenge on a mob family, and you get some people to help you.

Rather have more Mafia 2 story.

Blue that was a sad link. Not to mention the idiots at the end trying to prove how manly they are by their taco eating skills, having to travel around with a firearm at a hotel and drinking skills.

It's like a new generation of Kentucky hillbillys with a bit better bathing skills.

Your crusades getting old...

That's what it feels like at times. Thankfully I'm not alone. We have large numbers for this movement.

Kxmode I understand your point. But raging against Blizzard here has as much effect as me complaining about JJ Abhram's lack of creativity with existing licences at the gas station.

Can't wait for this one.

I'm torn. I loved M2, but the first gameplay video for this one didn't instill a lot of confidence.


Yeah it looked like incredible mediocre console shooter fare, with ridiculously over the top "gritty violence" tacked on to make it seem exciting.

It's Rambo First Blood, except Rambo has a darker tan, set in New Orleans, and the PTSD starts right at the beginning of the movie.

I thought the same thing but then I dug up some actual screen shots...

Original

and the new one -> http://store.steampowered.com/app/301650/

Also remembering now... this game didn't support 3D acceleration when it launched, was added in a patch well after the fact.

So... it does look a lot better! But yeah, not quite modern. Honestly, I'm still tempted to pick this up. With they'd added VR support (I know that's a different project...) but maybe that'll come in a patch

Edit: Hyperlinks are the hottest trend of '98!

Actually got a copy with a 3dfx card at the time (maybe voodoo?).

Gamestop has ALWAYS been about how much money they can make. I've personally seen them screw over employee's left right and center (my manager when I worked for them during a holiday season had a back injury from a faulty ladder that was purchased by a higher-up that was NOT designed for the job that was required and collapsed on him and he suffered severe back injuries that Gamestop fought tooth and nail not to deal with and ultimately fired him for those injuries).

And they called it GameTrust... HAH.

Not sure whether to take more allegra, or just dull the discomfort after work with a gin and tonic.

Some reason I keep picturing Ben Stein with a giant bottle of Visine trying to put drops in your eye

Where exactly did you find the budget/cost of all the Mass Effect games?

At least deal with facts, not something you THINK might be accurate, lets go for 100% accurate.

The game came out over a month ago. Why are they just now getting around to doing this?

And was it obviously an exploit?

I remember EverQuest having a dungeon with a bridge in it, and running over the bridge then jumping down (and the monster wpuld run back off the bridge and around and down rather than jumping) was an "exploit."

Meanwhile in most games, that is strategy. Of course, "zoning" to flee a fight you were losing was considered an exploit at first, too.

i remember when kiting was considered an exploit

Kiting, or playing a bard and having multiple songs running. Damn I feel old

15. Re: Petition for Legacy World of Warcraft Servers Passes 150k Apr 18, 2016, 18:37 The Half Elf
 
But there is ONE MAJOR FUNDAMENTAL DIFFERENCE between the server that was shut down and WoW.

Monthly subscription.
Yeah it might sound trivial, but it is a major point that has NOT been addressed.
Would those from the legacy server pay monthly for Blizzard to do it.
Yes there were donations for server fee's and I believe development costs.

While I hope something comes out of this for them, the next time you write a petition for something don't make it personal with your gaming history. Just the 5 W's.
