To me, Legacy of Kain starts and dies with Blood Omen. It's a great, dark, Zelda clone. I don't speak of the other games... old-ass CGI intro

Exactly this. Once Silicon Knights lost the franchise, and the entire thing mutated into someone else's vision, it was dead to me too.

Can't it be both? Seriously. We like politics in some games, and some games we play to avoid them. The only reason this touched a nerve is the recent self-segregation of gamers over human sexuality, and that it was poorly and amateurishly implemented (super-personal information about extremely minor character is just looking for a convenient spot to drop a social statement).

There, I fixed it. Just move on already, all of you.

I do not understand and will never understand the need to push this kind of bullshit in games. Can't we just have games to play without all the mellow drama bullshit?

It's bad enough people have to deal with this crap in real life, the devs got busted for it and good. Serves them right for trying to play up to this crap.
Have fun living in your bubble where you can cower and hide from the realities and issues of the day.

Science fiction and fantasy literature have always been about real life issues. It's by putting the story in a setting where the trivialities and rules of the universe can be skipped to focus on telling the story, which have always - in the best sci-fi and fantasy - been about the times and people and the world and all issues therein.

Apparently it's you that's living in a bubble, most common people prefer to not deal or hear about this lame bullshit. It does not have a place in gaming where people are trying to most likely place their political views and cramming them down everyone's throats.

Is it free? No? Cause I'm still waiting for the rest of my $60 adventure, and I got something that felt about $0.99 worth. Nice world. Where was the game again?

Bought into this on release and was so disappointed. Super entertaining if you just ignore everything, turn off the map, and roam. AAA game then. Otherwise it's just shit and distractions (from the fact you paid for it).

Yes, play this game if you have not, and are looking for some fantasy adventure. This game has a really unique combination of fun character builds, Shadow-of-the-Colossus-like interaction (grappling, crawling around on large enemies), amazing spell effects and great exploration. I had a lot of fun with this game on its original release, and a second time on the Dark Arisen rerelease. It's a good game.

There are so many they left out. They probably could have done a '50 people who have sued the video game industry' video.

Why even fucking chance it? Seriously? It's like saying "I have to put this scorpion on my dick, but I put rubber bands on it's claws and I don't *think* it can get them off."

Seriously. Why ever install Win10? Why?

No, see this right here is pure, unmitigated BULLSHIT. (You know what's bulllllshit?...been watching too much AVGN ) It should be against the fucking law to skip out on paying employees (period), especially during the holidays. That's just low...so goddamn low. That's lower than dirt. You're in mud and clay territory. These people worked the hours, now pay up! (WHERE'S MY MONEY?!?) And if not, there better be a big fucking bonus when you slimey bastards DO finally pay! You can't even begin to possibly tell me they didn't see this coming like a month or two or six in advance?! BULL-SHIT!
ARGH! God, that shit pisses me off!

Well, I still use Winamp daily as my sole MP3 player. I have zero interest in streaming content (unless it's one of the few webradio spots left), and I have a thing called directory-structure that functions as my library.

Someone turned me on to something called AIMP when I brought up this headline today. Haven't checked it out yet, but sounds promising.

Not sure I trust a WinAMP revival. All companies want to do now a days is turn the software into spyware and distribute it for "free".

Hate MGS. This dude has been talking about his departure since MGS2!!! Astounding. Hope he's got fucktons of cash from that venture to do whatever he wants afterward. This whole situation seemed really painful (from what we could tell outside of the company).

No fair, Taylor Swift said she would be exclusive with only me. Now shes biting into the Apple. Huzzy.

Wasnt she the pop star that caused apple to make some significant change in some product? Or am I misremembering? If it's the same one that would be a hilarious flip-flop.

They were mocking that trend even, saying the next step might be a button to teleport to the objective.

Nah, the new trend is Twitch (or Let's Plays!); passive gaming.

How fucking meta is that shit?

Can we do something different? I have been waiting for SS3 for a long time, but not SHODAN. Let a fucking victory from one of the past games stand!

The game kind of went from tons of fun playing Meccs, to OK/frustrating as the Sea Reaper, and then by the time you got to play the Giant, you were just kind of restless

My experience exactly. Never actually finished the game, but fond memories and liked it at the time. Always meant to go back. Certainly made me hate bump mapping tech in one swift go.

This teams followup game was pretty shitty, (Armed and Dangerous) but had the same British humor and python-esque presentations and characters as Giants.

That was my first death since cobra times way back when. Luckily, they changed the insurance policy. I was short the $12 million buyback option by several million. Still got the ship back, but you now get grafted automatically with each mission.

So, I sold my $55 million dollar thrusters (that I just goddamn bought!) and downgraded to get out of debt and have extra insurance money.

This is why I put the game down 10 hours into it and never looked back. I don't need the stress of "insurance" or money to follow me into a god damned game. That doesn't just take the enjoyment away, it rapes it out of my hands.

Dead... Island.... No, for that, Steam needs to add a "Nuke" option that allows us to wipe the developer off the face of the earth.

Only one person has pointed out this shit is a trojan horse for Epic's new "me too" spyware. Gamers will just gobble any cock put in front of them if there's even suggestion of a marginal entertainment value.

News Comments > Just Cause 3 Patch Status
12. Re: Just Cause 3 Patch Status Dec 3, 2015, 15:30 Ludomancer
 
That's the sad thing: This is the product of, literally, thousands of hours of testing by thousands of testers. At a certain point the game is so fucking big and complex, and the development pipelines can be such a ridiculous mess due to time, budget, and shoehorned releases (I think that's the part that gets us the most), it becomes impossible to manage.

I agree it's unacceptable, but it literally is tested to such a stupid extent that it's not really a valid complaint (no offense). They just need to improve their work and methodology for development.

You really have to wonder if any of these studios spend much time on testing their product.
