Awesome, I'll probably pick it up on steam, but maybe ps4!
Glad they remastered this, I didn't get a chance to play these on ps2.

News Comments > Destiny 2 Gameplay Trailer

I don't know anything about Destiny and watching this trailer didn't give me much of an idea of what gameplay in Destiny 2 would be like. Pretty much a fail of a trailer if you ask me. ie.. what is game play and what was an in-game set pieces?
Yeah, they didn't really talk much about the campaign other than "MORE CUT SCENES THAN EVER BEFORE!!!", and OMG MOAR LOOTS!... They heavily focused on pulling random strangers into clans, where like in WoW, they're going to get kicked from groups and shit on because they aren't good. -- No thanks.

The Blizzard App portion is actually one of the appealing things for me, I have a ton of friends on that and All the people I know that did play destiny (on whatever platform) are on it. but alas, I usually played alone because I prefer it, especially when even people I do know can be assholes about shit. (no longer play Overwatch with them either.)

Destiny community wasn't that tight knit when I was playing, so are they really just blowing smoke up my ass, or did it change with the content drought?

Wow, lots of Zenimax hate up in hurr.

Remember this sentiment when the next Elder Scrolls game is launched, next Fallout, or that new Quake game.

It's strange how people are able to divorce their feelings from a shitty mega-corp and the studios they own who make the games people love in some instances, but not in others.

it's socially intriguing.
I haven't picked up Dishonored 2, and I don't think I'll be picking up any zenimax/bethesda games from this point. And I used to want to go to quakecon and even work for iD, but now that all of this stuff has happened, I'm entirely against supporting this parent company.
While some people purport that they won't buy games from a company, I actually do follow through for the most part. I don't think i'll miss much either. [I don't play elder scrolls games anyways]

I would have loved to go to this, and have wanted to go for a long time.

Due to litigation between ZeniMax and Oculus(Facebook), the one time I can actually go, I choose not to.

I guess he got tired of waiting to write the new story for part 3 so he left. Can't blame him. This game is starting to feel like Duke nukem forever. I guess valve wants HL3 to be the new crowning king of vaporware.
Technically, HL3 was never announced. HL2: Episode 3 was announced, and then cancelled.

I was kind of frustrated with the patch, but the new pistol (r8) distracted me enough that I didn't notice some of the accuracy changes as much, other than I felt way less accurate and having to spray more.

I'll have to check out the new patch.

In regards to possibly having a beta channel for testing, I think they have it available to them, but they apparently haven't been using it (at least widely)

You can disable the task scheduler tasks for the win10 upgrade. I finally did that at home. (still using win7 at home and work.)

Assumptions are [Fill in your own word here].

I've played it, and I'm biased because I know the devs. But it's really not what you expect.
You should probably do a little research before spouting cases for why something is or isn't going to work.

Anyone who's into horror type games should like this game. In fact, I'm not even a fan of most horror games, and I'm a fan of this game.

"Nevermindís goal is to create an unforgettable gameplay experience that can help teach you to be more aware of your unique internal responses to stressful situations."
That quote is definitely more mind bending than you can assume it is without having played it.

But it looks like you already have a bias, so I don't expect you to change your mind: Cutter.

"How Human Resources Manipulates and Spies on You, Even When Youíre Not at Work." Thanks Acleacius.

Wow, someone fall asleep reading 1984 ?

(I work in a right to work state, I don't have to put up with this stuff. it's unfortunate if anyone does, but there has been legislation to prevent most of this nationwide... in the USA)

Most of the comments here about HBO and Comcast are kind of moot:
Get HBO Now and stream.

The issue with HBO Go is using your ISP as a login to HBO Go. So get HBO Now when it comes out and stream just like you do with Netflix.

Comcast is really driving cable customers to streaming; and they're shooting themselves in the foot.

It's likely that it didn't have a sim card or wasn't trying to make any cellular connections. Hence the long battery life.

News Comments > Hatred Gets Steam Redlight
39. Re: Hatred Gets Steam Redlight Dec 16, 2014, 01:22 raVen
I believe when self-publishing on steam, Valve is taking a share of the burden*. (Postal had already been published brick and mortar wise, see:,_Inc. )
Greenlight is still Valve's indie publishing, and they're free to deny people from the program.

If another publisher were to step in and publish the game, I'm fairly sure it would be given a chance at digital sales on Steam. However, I'm also fairly certain that they (The Developer) would have to make some concessions to whichever publisher chose to pick them up. As that's how the publishing game works.

*: As there is less of a physical burden (shipping and distributing physical copies), there is still the Stamp of Approval burden, which I can see this is the case they're trying to make. If another publisher were to step in, it would avert Valve from being responsible for the game being released. (Especially if another publisher decided to just distribute physically, and open up other avenues of distrubution.)

Valve has the right to pull the game from their store. But they shouldn't have.
"Based on what we've seen on Greenlight we would not publish Hatred on Steam. As such we'll be taking it down."

As was with Postal 1 & 2, if they found another publisher willing to publish it they could probably get listed on Steam.

They (Valve) have every right to not publish games they don't want to publish. (From a publishing point of view. They're not banning it from steam.)

Will players without expansions be able to play? I still have my WoW installation on my very old, updated Windows XP Pro SP3 box, from over a decade ago. However, I haven't been updated it for many years. But then I have no time for gaming even reading BN daily. Maybe Christmas break?
It'd probably be faster to download the newer version. Tons of asset changes, and even a new asset format. They've gone on record saying an old disc install is going be less optimal an install than just downloading everything again.
If you've got decent internet speeds, you can get going pretty quickly with the launcher.

I've been too busy playing wow to comment here.
I'm having a blast, and appreciate the sentiment. on KJ I waited around 21-25 hours in queue over the launch, and took two days off of work. (I played a ton of steamworld dig and Binding of isaac rebirth while I waited, and watched a few movies.)
