This game is an absolute trainwreck of a disaster, one of my biggest disappointments of 2018. Having loved both Ultima Underworlds, Thief, and System Shock (games the devs name dropped countless times) I couldn't wait to play this.

Within 15 minutes, I was already disgusted, but gave it a solid 4 hours before I threw in the towel. The controls feel wonky, you can't disable simple things like subtitles or mouse acceleration, game was too dark, enemy AI was atrocious, physics are bugged, graphics clip, spells don't save in your spellbook, game saves don't work at all, combat was horrendous, etc etc, this game is a failure of epic proportions.

It's literally an insult to all the games it tries to compare itself to, and needs to have that card taken away from it fast. Even seeing skills called "System Shock" and enemies named "Spectre Warren" would completely break immersion...if the game had any to begin with.

Absolute turd. As for anybody looking forward to this team making System Shock 3, end your excitement now, because it's going to be a catastrophe.
How much did the devs pay you to write that? You totally softpedaled it.

Didn't these games sell well? What happened tot his company?

It looks like they expanded too quickly, making as many games as they could as quickly as they could. They didn't do much with their engine or story telling techniques, so the formula got old.

Shame they screwed over their employees, both while the company lived and as it died.

Yeah, there was a time a couple of years ago where they announced four games in one month and I expressed concern here that they were biting off more than they could chew. Sorry to have been correct.

Wow. Almost sounds too good to be true. Blizzard, put your phones down and read this.
I loved these games back in the day, but I'm not sure i want to revisit them. I still haven't played more than a couple of missions in Homeworld Remastered, for example. And there are modern RTSs I own like Kharak that I need to get to.

That being said, I will absolutely throw down for a remaster of Diablo 2.

All adults should be screened for unhealthy alcohol use, new guidelines say.

Pssh. I don't need to be screened. I already know that I use unhealthily.

I just remember drinking Jolt and Dr. Pepper by the case load way back in the day. Sometimes we'd stay up 72 hours straight, just wired and jittery and talking shit at each other over a LAN game of Doom.

Didn't you mention you have trouble sleeping these days?

Top 3 favorite movies?

I'm not sure I could narrow it down to a definitive three but some stuff that came to mind include: Eraserhead, Paths of Glory, Pulp Fiction, A Serious Man, Zodiac, Aliens, Taxi Driver, Blade Runner 2049, Ben-hur, and Tarkovsky's Stalker.

That's a pretty eclectic mix, but all quality.

I feel like I saw this same trailer a few months ago.

As for Overload, it's the next game I'm buying, probably during the upcoming holiday sale.

I feel like the odd man out. Comics never really did it for me growing up. While my peers were sometimes enthusing about Batman or Spiderman, I was reading Howard, Heinlein, Asimov, Varley, Smith (both of them), and other books. My whole family are "readers" so that probably helped canalize my literature habits from an early age.

I was never a fan of comic books either. I vaguely recall liking the X-men cartoon that aired on weekday afternoons in the early 90s, but I certainly didn't develop any lasting bonds of childhood nostalgia for it like I did for Duck Tales, Rescue Rangers, and Animaniacs. Likewise, the Marvel Cinematic Universe does nothing for me. The films are generally watchable and inoffensive, but I could go my entire life without seeing any of them and don't think my life would be any poorer for it. Given the apparent overlap between video game and comic book fandom, I must admit that I'm left scratching my head anytime the latter intrudes upon the former.

THE PIKACHU TRAILER

I missed the Pokemon craze, but my daughter loves it. At least Ryan Reynolds is in it, I'm sure I will have to watch it.

I kept expecting pikachu to drop F-bombs.

Tried this

https://www.smbc-comics.com/comic/2010-05-16

They still wanted to play with the dolls


Meh, some girls do, some don't, just like some boys are interested in mechablox and some boys aren't. The point of the comic is cultural gender expectations can shape children if we're not careful.

I introduced a wide variety of things to my kids, and then supported what interested them, regardless of gender stereotypes. My daughter gravitated towards athletics and STEM, and is currently trying to get into MIT to study physics and math. She had dolls, but had little interest in them. My son is really good at science and math, but also loves art and music. He likes coding, and is good at it, but usually codes to create some kind of graphical art. Seeing which path they choose when fully informed is more interesting than forcing them along gendered expectations, IMO.

Also, if you like SMBC, you should try the Perry Bible Fellowship. It's NSFW, BTW.
