Sorry, Einstein: Hard workers may make better role models than geniuses.

This is a retread of a study from 20 years ago that showed praising kids for hard work was better than praising them for being smart. When they gave them a harder problem to solve, the "Wow you must work hard!" kids worked longer before giving up than the "You must be smart!" ones.

TV commercials always include a line of "supplies are limited!" or "buy one before they're gone!"

Not to sound like I'm on EA's side - but from what bit I have read, the dude sounds like a major Dbag & deserves it.

There're two sides to a story, but pro video gaming is entertainment fluff. EA is under no obligation to let people play in their tourneys and use the fame to tear at them.

Anxiously waiting, but very skeptical about the game play.

TB combat - will be pissed to no end.

No Coop, again pissed.

Steam Release - Thrilled!

Trying to keep exceptions in check - Yes!

According to the Steam page, it has full co-op support though? I assume it'll be the same engine as DOS 2, which fully supported co-op.

https://store.steampowered.com/app/1086940/Baldurs_Gate_3/

I'm sure it will be Coop, but its the TBC that's going to piss a lot of the older devoted fans off. And seeing how Larian is doing it and most likely with their DOS engine they have in place is what worries me.


Pissed off a D&D game can be played with multiple people?

Show me.

Instead of "who am I going to choose" it became "white dude shoehorns diversity in his game and then smells his own smug farts in interviews"

Now I kinda wanna play it for the novelty.

News Comments > Knights of the Old Republic Remake/Sequel Rumor

28. Re: Knights of the Old Republic Remake/Sequel Rumor Jan 25, 2020, 10:01 KS
 
Remake, re-imagining, reboot, soft reboot, I don't care what you call it. You're gonna run around to all the usual name-dropped planets solving hopefully new puzzles.

I don't care if they add non-Jedi class advancement, just don't force me to do it by denying Jedi stuff until level 10, or make me fight teras kai no force powers in a few fights because of some misguided attempt to make a gameplay variation "experience".

If I wanna fight without force powers, I can go play, I dunno, every other game ever made.

"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.

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.
