One of my favorites. Play it with an extra large glass of vodka and orange juice for added effect.

I clicked here because I figured you all must be talking about that ridiculous Tim Cook / Apple article. Nope, not really. Sigh bluesnews commenters.

Are you a meat-puppet/sock-puppet?

Yes. Meat, in particular. May I ask why you are so curious?

So I started this game because everyone gushes about it. I don't like it at all. It's boring as hell, every character is unlikable and the mechanics are glitchy and painful. I've been playing with my GF, because she's not a gamer and I thought that she could like it, but she doesn't either.

Max is sooo whiny and boring and makes the worst decisions possible. It's really frustrating playing her and being forced into obviously dumb situations. The writing's pretty bad sometimes too. Characters say things that literally don't make any sense and everyone carries on like nothing happened. The time thing is neat, but the application is terrible. It glitches all the time. Once, I rewinded and it showed me a totally different scene for no reason. Also you're forced to watch really long scripted sequences several times...

Anyway, we've done the first two episodes and basically decided to give up and play other, better games in this genre.


Thanks. My friends and I gave your post a 3 out of 5 stars, all in all we think it was super awesome and would love to see more.

Um, no, this is week two of their free DLC thing. Temerian armor and the barber were available at launch, while the Yen outfit and new quest just came out. Next week there will be two more things, so on and so forth for eight weeks total.

You're pretty smart. Not so much for others.

As much as I hate to make a positive post. Windows 10 is actually good stuff.

Indeed. It's Windows 8 done right. The changes aren't immense, but important, and currently it doesn't feel broken, just incomplete. July wouldn't be all that shocking. Project Spartan is the only thing that feels like it may need a bit more time.

And what of those of us who already own the originals? Guess we get fucked.

You bought the games and never played them? Well that's just silly, they're solid games.

That's total bullshit, winamp decodes AAC, FLAC and MP3 at less than 1% on one core, and that's on an old midrange cpu ( core i5 750 ) at a throttled down speed ( around 1.4ghz ).

And yes I know thats only "1 channel", but still.

So why couldn't their game do the same?

You can't handle the truth son! They don't want you to know it's not the audio, but you are exposing them! Keep up the fight! If the people find out it's something other than audio, and we know their lies, down with Respawn!

I was just thinking earlier today how much I love touchscreen analogue controls on smartphones and wishing there was a gamepad that would recreate this functionality for PC games. Mouse and keyboard and Xbox 360 controllers... hah! If only someone could come up with technology that would stream my Windows gaming to my smartphone. The pinnacle.

I don't know. As much as people are willing to pay for maybe? Great question though. Super great.

Hopefully Carmack will have tons of fun programming shitty-looking games for decrepit hardware.

You must be crazy or blind, because RAGE is one of the best looking games of all time, on console or PC.

Rattlehead

Unless you turn around really fast or look at things really close.

I imagine when id makes a detective game with a player character that makes surprise 180 degree turns, they'll adjust.

If I didn't know better I'd think you knew what you're talking about!

If you knew better you could probably talk about any feature from Windows 8 in detail other than "file copy and task manager!" but no, the improvements people always mention are copy and pasted from reviews because they do not even understand what they're using actually using. I doubt any of you have even used storage spaces or know what they did to the memory heap, you're ratting off bullet points and regurgitated talking points to justify your personal upgrades. When they give me real reasons to upgrade from Windows 7, I will consider it. The os being cheap isn't a reason to upgrade.

Hey smartguy, I think you quoted the wrong person. "file copy and task manager" what? I simply pointed out that I am a perfectly happy Windows 8 user, then made fun of you. Please work harder on your comeback posts.

A lot of people like it, including me. I usually leave it on the desktop and rarely see the new Windows 8 interface, but it is indeed a fast and surprisingly problem free OS, for me. This is just elitist tech geeks trying their best to give it a bad name.

You're using Windows 7 with an annoying tablet interface bolted onto it that you manage to ignore and very minor under the hood changes. Stop trying to deceive yourself that you're somehow blazing a new path that "tech elitist geeks" somehow don't understand. Of course it's problem free, its based almost entirely on Windows 7 which has years of stability testing. This is not an accomplishment! It has nothing to do with "hating", it's an operating system, not a band. Instead of people being elitist tech geeks maybe others just have really low standards.
