Replayability for this game just increased by 0.013%.

Yeah, I don't want to play every level with every gun and rune unlocked, I want to take the character I played through the first time and do another play through on a different difficulty and finish unlocking everything I failed to the first time through. I want to go back to the first level with the ruins and more guns.

Which, I mean, I can do with the level selector, but I can't save. Some of the later levels take several hours (well, probably 30 minutes if you rush), and that's more than one sit down for me. But, when you do the level selection, you can't save mid-level.

Just let me do multiple playthroughs on the same save. All I wanted.

I pay like $200 a month for cable and internet. Time to change, I'm thinking.

Ouch, really? I pay $45 for internet, $10 for Netflix, and have Amazon Prime. No cable because I'm not even close to watching the shows I want to on Netflix and Prime. I'm considering getting HBO Go.

I'm thinking I could do with Netflix, Amazon, HBO Go, Hulu Plus, and Sling. All I'd be missing out on is Ash vs Evil Dead, and I can do this after that finishes the run. $60 for all those services. Plus internet, which is probably going to be $50.

Right now I get every channel ever. I watch about 20 minutes of TV a day, though, and that's generally an episode of Archer or Bob's Burgers on Netflix. Overall, I'd say I watch about 5 hours of TV a week right now, if that. But I like watching things when I want to watch them.

Fios has a deal right now - $69.99 for two years (must sign a contract) of "custom TV," plus 150MB internet, plus home phone (which I have now but never plugged a phone in.) Thing is, good luck finding out on the website what channels are covered there. I can say for certain that half the 5 channels I watch are not included, so you need to add a package for those, which is something like $20 per. Then HBO. Then $18/month for the good cable box (my DVR is near empty, given that everything is readily on-demand, so maybe I can do with the $12 one), and $10 for the router, so $69.99 just became closer to $129.99. Plus taxes. Oh, and that custom TV package is something like 50 channels, 41 available in HD. It's 2016, I don't even think Time Warner offers me non-HD channels, why is Fios doing this? I will never, ever watch an SD channel. Just take it away. Don't make Channel 5 Fox and Channel 816 Fox HD. Don't be annoying. Embrace HD and just make Channel 5 Fox, which is in HD because there's no Fox SD because who the hell isn't doing HD?

I recently was forced to watch The Price Is Right while waiting for my doctor's appointment. I think I heard the phrase, "The number #1 network in daytime television for 30 years" about 50 times. So I guess they have that.

They also have 5 of the top 10 TV shows in the US right now. Including something called Bull that I've never even heard of.

CBS is doing quite fine. Me, though? The only shows in the top 10 I've seen are the NFL. I've never heard of that Bull one, or The OT. I pay like $200 a month for cable and internet. Time to change, I'm thinking.

As for that traitorous, sellout scoundrel nin, he needs to walk the plank! Off with you, scallywag! Bat Giggle Ahoy

As I've said before, I'm a gamer, and I don't limit myself to one platform. If it's awesome, I want to play it...

In addition to a pc, I've owned a 2600, a nes, a genesis, a ps1, an atari jaguar (egad!), a dreamcast, a gamecube, a 360, a GBA, and a DS.

Why limit yourself to one platform?


I've had a 2600, NES, Gameboy, Gameboy Color, SNES, Genesis, Dreamcast, GBA, Gamecube, 360, and PS3. I've also had, at times, roommates with an N64, PS2, and Xbox, and therefore owned games for each of them, too. I may be forgetting some but don't think so.

Some of those I really hardly touched. The GBA came with the GC I bought on eBay and got maybe 10 hours of use. The PS2 was used solely for Katamari Damcy, the PS3 basically only for the Naughty Dog games, the Genesis mostly for Sonic 2 and Road Rash, and the DC I bought after it was discontinued and actually really struggled to get into.

But there are tens of thousands of hours into those combined, particularly the NES, GC and 360. Way too many great games (at the time) for them.

AH-HAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHA!

I'll let you guys know how awesome it is!


I'm sure it will be, but it's Rockstar's loss ultimatively.

Is it?

They're the ones with the full knowledge of how much it would take to build, test, market and launch the game for the PC at the same time as consoles, as well as with a strong understanding of how much money they'd make for having done that.

This is just a small group of PC gamers going "well, they won't get my $60."

I'd wager it's more the loss of people who only game on one platform than anything else.

What year is it?

Consoles are PC's, they're developing the game on PC's for low-end PC's (today's consoles).

the only thing they're skipping out on is needing to test the game on different PC specifications, something which modern development tools are quite capable of performing software analysis on.

This is a bean counter maneuver, why sell just one copy when a lot of those console people will buy a second copy on the PC platform.

Rockstar: Making Console Gaming Great Again


They're not PCs. Similar internals, but different OSs, by and large, and testing is dramatically different. Dramatically.

And yes, GTAV did well on PCs. We don't know this won't make it to PCs at some point, with there not being enough resources to get it out at the same time as consoles and it not being worth delaying the console release when GTAV still sold well 18 months later.

We also don't know what kind of costs they plan in order to get the game out on PCs. We can sit here and speculate, but anyone that thinks they're leaving money on the table because "because," is being kind of naive and foolish, no? Much like anyone saying "M$" in 2016.

I'll buy a used XBONE, play this for a month, then sell this and the XBONE.

Problem solved. While I had a PS3 and Xbox 360 last gen, I just don't see much of a reason to own a console now. Too old, too little time to play anything.

That might carry slightly more water if Wikileaks and Assange weren't foreign agents interfering in the election/proper government operations... by leaking documents suggesting that foreign entities might be interfering in government operations.

Its called putting the truth out on a lying corrupt piece of garbage.

Just wait till you see (and choose to ignore and or justify) all the criminal activity being released about the Clinton machine today.

Not that the Marxist "main stream media" will cover it. These things don't comply with their brain washing agenda.

Why wouldn't they release all this criminal activity first? Why wait until half of America has tuned out because they see these leaks have still largely been "The DNC didn't like Bernie Sanders, after Bernie Sanders spent an entire career calling them morons then switched sides solely to run for president?"

Thus far, no smoking guns, and this is coming from someone that was a Bernie fan. Why would they not lead with the smoking gun, if such exists? Generally, you lead with your best (unless you have a captive audience.)

Man, PC gamers can be really fragile. "That time you didn't make a game for my preferred platform you hurt my feelings. I'll never buy a game from you again!"

These are business decisions tied to budgets and resources, something RDR went significantly over for both counts. We're lucky we got it at all.

Other speculation is that it's signifying multiplayer, which makes the game much more dull to me. I know I'm the exception as far as voting $$$s go, but I have zero interest in playing this stuff online.

She didn't tackle him at all (played for 9 years), she just ran into him. It was a "look at me in the NFL" tackle. Which is why so many "tackles" are missed. I call them hockey hits. A tackle is a wrap up. This was a hit.

/in fact the runner could have avoided the hit if he was paying attention. They are fairly easy to avoid. Up high hit, just get low and move.


Thank you. Exactly. You first have to understand what a tackle is. That wasn't a tackle.

Per the NFL rule book, that was a tackle. Sorry, guys.

Absolutely. I was one of those broken people to preorder. I thought I did significant homework, but it all came down to Sean and his word. Well, NMS taught me a vital lesson. Never trust anyone, especially a millennial in a flannel shirt with an "aww shucks" demeanor. As far as warning people from preordering. You did it. Total Biscuit has done it. Unfortunately, there is a long way to go. Check out what happened when someone tried to warn Steam users from the pain of preorder disappointment on Shadow Warrior 2. Vitriol, to say the least.

He's 37 or 38, not a millenial.

Childish, totally over the top, hilarious, going beyond everything that is decent, and with only one goal: to make you laugh your ass off while shaking your head in denial of what you have just watched.

I felt like Deadpool tried too hard to shock. Yet, I found Ash vs Evil Dead's butt scene last week hysterical.
There's good lowered intellectual level and bad, and AvED is good to me.

The game is fun, but it's definitely more ARPGish than straight up FPS, in terms of the sheer amount of loot drops, mob types(elites, etc.) and configurable weapons and skills.

I realize that might not be everyone cup of tea (or what they expect from the franchise) but that actually sounds more exciting to me. A review I watched last night also mentioned the drops and weapons.

Might bump this up a few notches in the list...


The weapons were the lowest part of the last game for me. Well, and the kind of lame skill upgrades, and the boss battles that you did a few dozen times over the course of the game.

But loot drops make it more interesting for me, too. I bought the last one for $4.99 or some such, and played the whole damn thing even though I kind of gritted my teeth through most of it, and will probably find myself doing it here, too.

No way this compares to Doom for me, though. Doom was the best pure FPS I've played in ages. Ages. Since HL4, most likely. Also, that's a typo I'm not changing, because I have no clue what I'm thinking to be that far ahead of myself.

Digital only kids!

Let's see, physical=disc mfg, packaging, promotional materials, stickers, delivery. Digital=a code. Yet digital is $59.99 & Physical is $47.99. Makes complete sense to me, really!

I was fully intending to play it on the PC@4k and let the kids play it on the X1, but nope.

Keep on being you, Microsoft.

I'm guessing so you can't Gamefly/Redbox it and get it free on the PC without ever truly paying for it.

Still seems small minded. The amount of people that will buy this on the PC seems small, regardless. Penalizing Xbone owners to preserve a small percentage of a small percentage seems misguided.
