"Vinnie, you F***!"

This game had the hardest mode ever, and I've started Icewind Dale II on Heart of Fury using two level 1 characters.

It was called real mode, and you died in 1 or 2 bullets. Toughed it out but couldn't get too far without enough bullets.

Many years ago some vendor spoiled the beans on some Apple product and Jobs cut them right off.

Why is it pseudo-spectator? Or is it a pseudo-sport? But if playing the games themselves is a sport, why wouldn't off-game uses be just as "real"?

Guess the kids are happy.......

It's all about the toy licensing, which is 4-6 times as much as gross ticket sales. That was why Jar Jar "was key" to all that. This is why Disney bought it. The ROI was toy sales, not even blockbuster profits.

They have to make sure it's not a flop or they have some splaining to do to the toy companies cranking out stuff for Christmas for months.

Cryptonomicon was the bomb. Also Quicksilver.

He's one of very few SF writers who actually writes magnificent, literary prose. I hope they competently translate it to the visual medium.

Approach combat in any number of ways you can think of following the physical rules of the game's universe.

My how far we've come from the days of EverQuest, where the one land bridge over land, deep in Blackburrow or some such, was considered an exploit if you stood on it, cast a spell on a monster, waited for it to run up onto the bridge, then jump down, and it would have to run the long way around and down to get to you, meanwhile you ran back up onto the bridge.

And god help you if you found a way to get onto a building roof with no path for the monster you were shooting at.

Game crashed again on the third mission. This time with no error log or warning. Had to do a hard reset.

I see it's a little too close to Mechwarrior 2 Mercenaries.

No matter what, it won't really mean something. Unlike your choice of whether to buy or not, which will, a little bit, for Hong Kong.
Boycotting 1 game, 1 company 1 "x", will do absolutely nothing to affect change.
That's not how it works.

Not correct. Also, you should feel cheap and soulless.

Let them know why, if you don't buy. If you do buy, let them know, too, that you don't care if they help export Chinese oppression and censorship

They will be glad to know.

Players assume control of legendary commanders from world history including Joan of Arc, Julius Cesar and Alexander the Great, each with their own distinct weapons and personalities

Don't forget the power of government-run social media scores in controlling billions! Such power! Can't wait for that legendary hero.

"Blizzard also decided at the last moment to remove the Brute-o-$$$ class, which intimidated opponents by threatening to teleport them to a reeducation camp, and was a pet class that dangled wealth in front of monsters to gain control. No reason was given."

All this game seems to be is a W I N K to the Diablo 2 fans

How's the W I N K I N G going with fans of Hong Kong?

1. I have to watch an ad to watch an ad.

2. When he cuts into the monster, ripping superheated lacerations, why doesn't it scream and run away? I thought Lucas Arts built AI, including avoidance and lifesaving behaviors, into these things 10 years ago.

All I see is the same wiffle bat level weapons gameplay with a sword of infinity wrapper.

Imagine the uproar around here if he'd said Black Lives Matter.
No wait, that's kneeling in the nfl.

Muahhh I wouldn't give a fuck if he said that, or took a knee because you can do that kind of shit here in America.
Colin Kaepernick would like a word.

The difference is that blitzchung protested an issue based on reality; on things actually going on systematically in China and one can easily show the evidence. Colin protested a non-issue directly contradicted by factual data and originated from a racist and victimhood mindset. And for those prone to straw-man other people's arguments: I am not saying there is no police violence or that there's nothing of anything.

Pretty sure Colin is protesting a real issue.


It's not even a valid comparison. There's an infinite gulf between ejecting someone because they hurt your bottom line in a free land -- they have free speech, you have free speech, you take your chances -- and ejecting someone because they hurt your bottom line in a dictatorship that brooks no dissent.

"Dude broke the rules."

How many levels of enjoyment of Blizzard products is each silenced dissident worth?
