So we should buy it broken and not what was stated in the hope that it gets fixed? And which is the dumb argument?

Be a reasonable person and realize things are not black and white? Use your judgement, do your research, and realize it's perfectly fine to buy some games on release once in a while?

I'm like 95% sure I'm going to get Cyberpunk 2077 on release. I would preorder it but the bonuses are not interesting.

Personally I'd rather it be true to DnD 5 than true to Infinity Engine games, as much as I like BG2, the combat system in Infinity engine games is not particularly good nor true to the ruleset for that matter (movement, cover etc.)

Really hope they don't make it true to DnD 5e. 5e is streamlined and while it's good for a pen and paper setting, it really lacks tactical depth and customization. There's not much you can do with its limited feat system to really distinguish your character from someone else's.

I'd much rather see Larian use their own creativity but that's probably unlikely given WotC's involvement.

The only reason why I'm ok with that is that it counters the Lib propaganda. None of them are good of course.

The Washington Post is pretty good. They have a pretty high standard for journalistic integrity and publishes addendums on the rare occasions that they fuck up. Compare that to Fox News, which lies constantly and never attempts to correct itself, a true hallmark of a propaganda network.

Saying no news orgs are good is a false equivalency and a lazy way of ignoring real criticism.

Same way I feel. Japanese games/anime are not my thing because of it.
Some are better done, because they aim directly at a broader range than just Japanese culture, like Resident Evil, but even in those you still taste this stuff, the overacting, the weird dialogues, etc.

Play Darksouls/Bloodborne. Awesome non-arcadey combat. Little to no dialogue. Problem solved.

The left or whatever the heck they are now has the world so @#$%$-up.

So now we are not supposed to want to see women in bikinis... ok....

At some point the left need to reevaluate what you have become. Its insanity, its moronic and it needs to end.


That's not what the article says at all. The problem is that searching for “photos of my male friends” on Facebook returns no results, and automatically assumes you're searching for photos of females. You can still search for whatever pictures you want in your spare time. Either you're too lazy to actually read the article, or you're terrible at comprehension.

Also, the issue was raised in Belgium of all places and has nothing to do with your politics. Jumping to politicize this bullshit is just ignorant and dumb as fuck.

Meh...I like all things WH40k usually, but this looks just kind of...I dunno, crappy.

The first game was pretty good and definitely one of the better 40K games out there. This looks like a decent sequel.

A lot of hullaballo and very little evidence. Im not a Trump supporter. Blaming Trump and Putin for stealing the election is childish, stupid and something I would expect from the Republican party to be honest.

Even if russians were involved in the DMC hacks, as this article strongly seems to suggest, the Democratic Party should take some responsibility for how they handled all of that fallout, and especially for backing the wrong candidate, instead of just pointing fingers.

Boo, fucking, hoo. Cry me a river.

Just because the Dems are partly to blame for losing the election doesn't mean that Trump and Putin are innocent.

Blaming everything on the Dems is just as childish and stupid as blaming everything on Trump and Putin.

Besides, a foreign power spreading lies and propaganda within the US is by itself a very serious problem, whether or not the you believe it affected the election. Investigating Russian involvement is important to help protect American interests in the future, and dismissing such an investigation as a sore loser's temper tantrum or baseless finger pointing is also pretty childish and stupid.

Fargo should have held on to Interplay--it was what put him on the map, after all. But, sad to say, really, that Fargo was one of the ones who lost faith in the PC side of the gaming market, and actually went around for years preaching that "the PC is dead" as a gaming platform--playing up consoles, etc.

The PC was dead for Fargo. No publisher would give him money to make the PC games that he wanted to make. It must have sucked to be turned down over and over again by publishers and have to fire people to keep his company afloat. It wasn't until Steam and Kickstarter got big that he could finally find the funding.

I think it far more likely that there's something about MOBA games that attracts the type of people who take joy in being obnoxious.


Wrong. MOBAs don't attract obnoxious players. It's just easier to be toxic in a MOBA. Here's the key differences between a MOBA and other shooters like CS:GO or Overwatch:
1. Game length. Each game in a MOBA takes a lot longer. Being stuck with people that don't do well after you've invested 40+ minutes into a match sucks more. Losing an hour long game due to someone else's bad play can make people very bitter.
2. The snowball nature of MOBAs. Yeah snowballing exists in non-MOBA games, but not nearly to the same degree. If a opponent is ahead in CS:GO you can still take them down with a few well placed bullets. In a MOBA, if a guy is ahead enough, he's unkillable can 1v5 your whole team.
3. A player doing poorly in a MOBA gives both money and experience to the enemy team. This combined with the extreme snowball nature of MOBAs makes it way worse for the other players on the team, and harder for them to carry the bad player. This is why a vast majority of the toxicity is directed towards players who are "feeding" the enemy team.

It is the nature of MOBA game design that a single bad player is a much larger detriment to the team than in other games like shooters. A single bad player makes the game MUCH worse for you, and that combined with the long match times brings out the resentment and toxicity.

Non of the above applies in PVE events, which is why I've never actually experience any toxicity in LoL's PVE game modes.

Oh boy, a PvE event in one of the most toxic communities I've ever seen. This is just -bound- to be a good time...

There's been several PVE events previously and they have next to no toxicity. It's teammates doing poorly in PVP that fuels toxicity in games like this.

I replayed JA2:Gold last year. Would probably do it again before playing some half-assed new version. I'll pay attention when it's released, as the X-COM remake killed it, but very low expectations.

XCOM was made by a great studio with a good budget. This game looks like utter garbage. And WTF is with this Rage bullshit. I hope I'm wrong.

This was pretty pathetic and sad to watch on twitch. Suddenly all the popular streamers ditched everything in their lives, including their friendships, in order to play this new expansion as quickly as possible. The other less popular streamers were quietly being ignored and then begging in the form of "I can help. I'm skilled. I can be active. I can be at every raid. I can farm flasks. etc."

Streaming is their job. All the popular streamers stream regularly, and if it's not this game they would be streaming something else.

Remember when these Blizzard rendered CG trailers used to be an event? Now it's just *shrug*

I would say this one definitely ranks up there. I haven't touch WoW in years and this trailer had me reading up on the story and thinking (briefly) about re-subbing.

Definitely more interesting than your typical "Waaagh Dragon/Demon/Undead are rampaging!!! Time for epic battle!!!!" opening cinematic.

Nah, it's statements like this that are dumb.

Esports and twitch viewership are growing, and TSM is one of the bigger brands which has been around for almost a decade.

I guess the subscriber numbers have finally fallen low enough that Blizzard feels the need to go this route?

I don't know if it was always this way, but it's been like this for a very long time now. I remember trying WOW a few years ago and getting every expansion except for the latest one with a sub.

As long as I live I don't think I'll ever get why anyone would be interested in watching people competitively playing video games. I'm talking about filling an auditorium with people where your only view of the action is from a large screen or projector.

Even watching a streaming event I can barley see the draw for maybe a half hour or so.


Do you ever watch sports? Why would people fill an auditorium watching competitive basketball? Do you get why some people may be interested in that experience?

Go back to that thread. I had to explain my joke, which means it was a bad one, but it was mocking the gatekeeping I quoted, not doing actual gatekeeping. I've never played FO4 (I may get to it someday, but doubtful), but the idea that fans of Fallout 4 aren't real Fallout fans is ridiculous, and that's exactly how the original post was phrased.

Ooops, my bad then. Apologies for not paying attention.

Don't be the delicate flower many gamers have morphed into elsewhere on the internet where saying anything other than "that's the best game ever!" is seen as an attack on a product they love. People have different priorities and different tastes, and what one sees as "depth" others can see as points of frustration.

Didn't you just say that Fallout fans who don't like FO4 aren't video game fans? Hypocrite much?

It always amazes me the level of detail in your memories regarding games. I can't even remember my strategy in a game from last year let alone 1994. Like, I played XWING v TIE FIGHTER and the first couple Civ games endlessly for years. Now I couldn't tell you much about them now except that I loved them for 2 or 3 reasons each. My strategy or story details or things like that? Not a chance. At least I am old enough now at 44 to start blaming it on age. As good an excuse as any.

I have really bad long term memory and can't remember details, but I can remember how I felt about things with pretty good accuracy.

Yeah, it wasn't like that at all. Heavy plasma had the best damage, 3 shot auto, a huge 30 round magazine, and completely outshined everything. There was no reason to ever use a lower tech weapon. In all my playthroughs I have never even bothered to use the plasma rifle/pistol or researched heavy laser. Laser rifles were only a stop gap because you can't get enough heavy plasma until a few months in.

Weapon variation in the first X-COM/UFO sucked, as you could research heavy plasma fairly early on and basically spend the last 3/4 of the game using the exact same weapon. The only customization to your arsenal to look forward to was the blaster launcher and the psi amp.

Also, there was no armor customization, as the flying suit was superior in every way. It's not like in the new X-COM where there's 3 variants of the top tier armor (tank/flying/stealth), where each had its own benefits and tradeoffs.

Item customization and variation is just way better in the new XCOM.
