That underdark expansion for NWN was the freaking BOMB. Can't remember what it was called, but it was just amazing.

Season pass? That's a really fucking long season there, Ubi. This game is two years old!

So from now on, every publisher will add the words "procedurally generated" into their blurb, so that the ad agency will understand that "the game universe is essentially infinite," and voila, you can make an ad that says anything you want it it.

Also, the fact that NMS is anything BUT infinite, but rather a rote collection of like six biomes repeating infinitely is apparently not a distinction in their world.

Ugh.. Anyone else finding that as you get old you have no time to actually play and finish the games that come out? Currently my game queue list just keeps growing.

Yeah, I do tend to take more time to finish games. The days when I'd get a new game and have it finished the next day are long since past. I still haven't finished Dishonored 2. My solution: just buy fewer games

Dayum that is pretty.

I think I'll pick this up for Xmas. Well, it's either this or FF15.

The dtv streaming service won't kill traditional tv. Until the general public stops requiring their hands to be held when anything electronic is involved (which will be never), there will always be a massive amount of people wanting to just turn it on and watch.

At what price point, though? The more people that cut the cable, the fewer subscribers have to bear the burden of paying for the exorbitant carrier fees and even more exorbitant Profit Needs of the telcos. It's anecdotally, of course, but I know of half a dozen colleagues on my floor who are going to cut the cord because the price of TV has gotten completely retarded. These are guys who love watching sports, but just don't want to pay 120-150 dollars a month for it anymore.

A year from now, that price will be 140-170, then 160-190, etc etc. There's going to come a point, and I think it's pretty soon, when a large majority of the population is going to say "This is ridiculous" and just quit.


On a sidenote, I'd also like to point out the hilarity that getting Direct-TV's cheapest TV package costs like $100, but you can get their online thing for $35. So is it really the carrier fees that make TV so expensive, AT&T, or is it your 300% profit markup?

Hmm, while browsing the All-Seeing Eye network here at Barad-Dur, I noticed what seems like a good deal online.

Surface Pro 3 deal

And shipping to Mordor is free, via Hobbit Special Delivery.

So the deal seems to include both entertainment, and dinner...

Any comments welcome - would this thing run Divinity: Original Sin? And maybe Pillars of Eternity? Thanks for advice.

I would stay faaaaaar the fuck away from Surfaces. I support them at work and they are non-stop problems. Microsoft is STILL trying to fix the battery life issues on the Surface 3 (and have been for well over a year now.)

Picked up Witcher 3 goty ed. figured $30 was more than a worth while price. Seeing the file was over 40gigs I decided I'd go on a long bike ride figured it'd be done when I got back. Well it was mostly done, when I got back my network was down, I reset it then my computer started flipping out, 99% memory and disk usage even after a full shutdown/boot. Managed to get it into safe mode, where the problem did not occur, and some googling pointed to the network drivers as a possible cause. Disabled it in the start up, replaced the drivers and everything seems to be working now. I guess the game defaults to hard mode and the challenge starts before you even get it downloaded . That or Comcast was pissed I was using the bandwidth I paid for and decided to hose my network and computer.

Weird. Here's a tip if you run into Witcher 3 black screening OFTEN (as in within minutes of starting): Underclock your video card. I know it sounds weird, but if I run my card at normal speed I can't even get past the very first balcony view. Underclock it by like 10mhz and 30mhz, boom, it'll crash maybe twice in 150 hours of play.

The game is so fucking awesome, it's well worth the hassle. Trust me.

Dear Hello Games,

I have nominated your game via Steam for the "Biggest Piece of Shit".

Thanks!

That should be a landslide.

The state of Pennsylvania admitted their proposed voter id law would disenfranchise hundreds of thousands of legitimate voters. Not surprisingly, a majority of those voters were minority voters.

This isn't meant to be snarky, so don't take it that way. The voted ID law would require you to provide a government-supplied (or sanctioned) ID before you could vote, right? So how could that disenfranchise so many legitimate voters?

I really like Amazon, but that is a fucking shitty move. At least, if you're going to allow pre-orders, don't allow people to get more than two, Amazon. That post from the jackass who got five for resale is really just indicative of how stupid this process was.

Dishonored 2 is 35 bucks on Amazon right now.

I can't remember recent years having such savings so close to release. I've gotten Dishonored 2, BF1, and Titanfall 2, all for upwards of half off.

On the one hand, it's awesome, on the other, I can't help but wonder which IPs (hello Titanfall!) it might be the death of in the future...


I think Titanfall and Dishonored are done for. BF is too big, but those two are not recouping anywhere near what they were expected to.
