Has anyone played this? It looks pretty cool, but skirmish only (basically, since the campaign is apparently short and not very good) games really don't last me long enough for me to bite at $50.

Fuck you, James Clapper.

Also, the US dropping 'cyberbombs' on ISIS is bad news. The last time the US did shit like this, it gave the web Stuxnet...

And don't claim any sort of 3D Space Sim is 'YOUR GAME' because it actually belongs to Creston (just easier to smile/nod/grin and walk away slowly without making eye contact).

LOL. Damn straight!!!

And my friends who read the books are the most adamant about not watching, as they basically hate it.

Well yeah. They know they will never to finish the story, unlike the TV watchers.

Being from Minnesota.....I can officially say that I am anti Prince (and I "liked" his music). It has taken over this ridiculous state.......I am over him/it. Let us move on please. I don't need Prince on repeat on EVERYFUCKINGSTATIONANDCHANNEL.

If people cared 10% as much about important shit as they do this fuck.......world would be a better place.

I didn't play much of the first Borderlands so I don't know how it stacked up to the second title in regards to the writing quality of Mikey Neumann but Anthony Burch really made the second title an amazing treat.

The story in the 2nd one was ten times better than the first one...

Cool, but they need to shake the gameplay up. More powers to use, more different builds, and please do something about the "billions of guns!" shit that means you use the same five guns over and over, just with minor little stat changes on them.

And for the love of God, fix your fucking drop rates. The sad thing about BL2 was that it HAD dozens of really cool guns, but nobody ever saw them because they were rare Legendaries, and thus they dropped like 0.00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001%.

Been playing the Mirror's Edge beta, and it's really, really good. Movement feels just as great as the first one, except now you can run virtually everywhere, combat has been massively improved (it was my biggest worry, and I feel they really did a great job on it. Maybe lasts a little too long in some cases where you go up against 2 or 3 guards, but that's probably also because I'm not very good at the big takedown moves yet), and there's tons of stuff to collect and missions to do etc.

The city looks fantastic (haven't seen it at night yet, unfortunately), though beware that by default motion blur is on which really should just be called the "Make Everything Look Like Shit" filter. It blurs even when there's no motion. Turn it off, and everything is sharp and crisp and just nice.

I like the upgrade system, love the movement, enjoy the combat. I was heavily on the fence about it, but I'm definitely getting it now. If you liked the first one but wished there were more places/levels for you to run through, I can't see why you wouldn't like this one.

It's not weird. It's exactly how you'd expect a defacto monopoly to operate. "Want to buy the coolest shit? Contribute a Benny to the widows and orphans fund."

Amazon is so far from a monopoly that if they genuinely believed this, they'd need to be committed for delusion. Especially since they're starting with games.

I'm having internet troubles myself. Everything was fine until last Thursday when another storm came through and knocked trees down on the road my neighborhood branches off from, knocking out power and internet. When it was restored Friday, things haven't been the same.

Downloads for the most part seem unaffected. I haven't tried playing a game yet to see if latency is an issue. I mainly notice it so far with streaming video, whether from Netflix, Amazon or YouTube. It's pretty inconsistent too. Usually if I start a video and it plays at the full HD quality it stays there, but if it starts off on a lower quality it never switches up to a higher one. Refreshing until it starts on HD sometimes works. I gets worse during peak hours (6pm-11pm) and harder to get any kind of HD video streaming going.

I've run speed tests at speedtest.net and also get varying results. One test will show me getting my full speed, then I run another one from the same server and I'll only get 25-30% of what I should be getting.

Sounds like packet tail drops to me. They probably had to route your area's traffic through a different node and that node is just swamped. Complain, dude. Complain daily.

aww man i love a good flaming tennis match. wonder who won.

Blue. Blue always wins.

Being serious, I'd guess Blue loses most here. I can't imagine he enjoys deleting posts and I'm sorry I got dragged down and beaten with experience.

I think that's the first post I've ever had deleted. My account is 15 years old and it's finally lost its virginity.

Awww, look at you, all grown up now!

It's not because one game failed that no other game with similar ideas can succeed.

True, but it's also a bit of a warning that porting a successful game to a different setting doesn't always work out.
