Am I the only one who is annoyed by dramatic pauses that make no sense in context?

Probably.

D Wrecker is in the house! Ok, lets all go out side now Smug

Nice to see the gang's all here. In truth, though I still read Blues, I just don't join in discussions any more because it tends to devolve into a frigging inconsequential circle-jerk. Who needs that shit, when there's Reddit?

Take for instance my recent post below after many months. I only came here because a Twitter follower sent me this comment in the thread, asking for clarification (it's rubbish). But the minute I post, the completely predictable response is that it automatically became about me, rather than the subject. And yet some wonder why I reacted the way I did. Fuck 'em. Life's too short, and I'm all out of rope.


Takes a self-certified genius with a phd he's never defended to see that jdreyer was being entirely facetious and mocking how every dev/pub is looking to add a Battle Royale mode. We all appreciate you letting us know it was rubbish.

Huh, since no one had responded in thread, I thought that joke had fallen pretty flat actually.

I got a chuckle out of it. I'm just too old to go around posting "LOL" on everything I find funny on the internet.

In truth Roberts can at any time throw whatever he has got out into the market, say "It's finished -here you go!" and basically have met his obligation to backers. I mean the class action against Gearbox for the Colonial Marines debacle went nowhere despite the shocking number of blatant lies surrounding the whole project, and then there's No Man's Sky...

At this point, so many people are so invested in Star Citizen's utter failure that the game can actually end up shipping and being pretty good (Not an outcome that I consider likely but you never know...) yet it will always be viewed as a failure. Me, I'm keeping my expectations low (which is to say, I expect a MAJOR flop) but secretly dream of a future where SC ships and is awesome.

My wife bought me this for Christmas. I just actually started playing it a couple days ago. I played they the original Destiny, didn’t buy any dlc, didn’t bother with the raids beyond a couple basic runs.

I’m assuming this will be fun thru the campaign and then I’ll be done with it. The framerate is buttery smooth, the game looks gorgeous, and the gunplay feels solid. That’s really all I expect of it.

All that is true. After the campaign is over the end game sucks.

The conga line of bad PR this game has gotten is kind of asrounding. Personally I liked the gameplay well enough; it was the blatant cash-grabbing cynicism that turned me off. I wonder how many people will watch the stream.

My last game I hit a guy point blank in the head with a sawed off shotgun, somehow he survived it with his level 3 helmet and killed me. Looking forward to this change.

So these magical Level 3 helmets will henceforth only be available in "care packages". Anyone want to fill me in on what "care packages" are?

Ironic that this new game, an homage to the seminal "Descent" series, has a VR mode considering the original Descent is widely regarded as the original vomit simulator.

I also don't get what Valve has to gain from this. Firewatch was a pretty good walking simulator. Not the best, but it had more gameplay than most. I can't wait for their next game though, it looks like such a rich idea.

What would you consider the pinnacle of the genre? Edith Finch?

Honestly The Stanley Parable is still my favorite, but What Remains of Edith Finch is outstanding.

Just like there is no source for your statement, even common sense says otherwise.

The lack of proof is all the source I need. There is none. "Common sense" is not evidence. I do, however, have anecdotal evidence that Let's Play's can produce sales, as I have bought games after watching a Let's Play that I otherwise would have had no interest in. And as to Beamer's point about puzzle and adventure games, I will watch a Let's Play for a puzzle or asventure game that I've already bought if I am stuck on a puzzle or want to see if there were other solutions. I did this with "The Sexy Brutale" after I bought it. Fantastic game btw - highly recommended.

Let's Play's are the new piracy scapegoat. There's no demonstrable evidence that a pirated copy (or a watched stream) is a lost sale but this is an easy excuse for developers to fall back on.

The first and second encounter ones are still the best. I'm not sure if you can nail the genuine feel of a Serious Sam game with an open world format. Hopefully they do it right.

I've seen Unity asset-laden shovelware Steam games that look better than Radical Heights did in the Let's Play I watched last night. I actually feel pity for Blezinski that this is what his career has come to. It's honestly sad. The sheer 'me too' desperation of his last 2 projects makes me feel embarraised for him. Epic isnt poaching talent, they are rescuing it from Blezinski's rapidly sinking ship.

Sony's Santa Monica Studios did something with "God of War" that's never been done before in a video game: It's made a complete video game that takes place in one continuous shot, in real time, with no loading screens at all.

The original Dungeon Siege did that in 2002.

That's more like it. I was shocked at their response to the outcry from unhappy customers - basically that there was a plan to soon have a plan - indicating that at least someone at Rare (or maybe Microsoft?) genuinely thought the game was fine as is at launch and were surprised at the discontent, which is simply astounding.

I was at work on my phone when I wrote my original post, so linking was a bit beyond my capacity. Basically I just googled "South Korean feminist group Megalia". I checked out a lot of the first and even some second page hits and amongst them I found some pretty alarming stuff. One page involved graphic pictures of mangled penises. There was a lot of basic feminism, but also a lot of genuine misandry being promoted. The word "radical" when describing feminists gets thrown around a lot (too much really and no, Anita Sarkeesian is not what I'd consider a radical feminist) but in the case of Megalia I think it genuinely applies.

I read the article on the South Korean "witch hunt" and was immediately shocked at what appeared to be a cut and dry case of institutionalized misogyny. However, being the curious fellow that I am, I looked up the group the women who were fired were said to have been supporting - "Megalia". Wow - given what I learned about that group I'm inclined to say those women might have deserved to be fired. It's dismaying that the article didn't bother to fill readers in on what the group the sunjects of the artocle seem to support espouses. It's possible that a lot of it is satire - I can't really tell to be honest.
