I just don't understand all the hype for this game... Since the first announcement, or maybe even before, because of whoever this Kojima guy is... I've tried to sit through the trailer and some other vid, but I just don't get it...

Thats all.
POE is an online-only game with an in-your-face MTX shop.
All of which are either cosmetic or additional storage/character slots, none of them impact game play.

If your argument is that the additional storage doesn't impact game play, I'm just gonna assume you've played single digit hours...

Looking forward to seeing some actual news on this... Not sure I care about 2, but if the price is reasonable (unlikely), I might give it another go... Was always so hard getting back into it's horrifically bad graphics after Titan Quest came out, and while I enjoyed II at launch, and after the expansion, I wasn't obsessed with ARPGs like I appear to be now with PoE (Especially this league).

I am so whet right now...

Was so hoping for Vulpera, like millions of others, but am also so sad there will be no mini kitty. Now I just have to figure out which class to level... again...

Some other juicy changes, and holy shit, finally, an Auction House update.

Took him 3 years to find a scummy lawyer that would take his case, gotta admire his persistance.

Why would this take a scummy lawyer?

Sounds like dude has every right to be paid for his work, again... Though if it's royalty based, I can't imagine he'd get much with the lack of success Duke shit has gotten this last decade or so.

Why is there an unskirt shot at 24 seconds?

Or better question - who enjoys upskirt shots of anime characters?

Did you not notice the massive popularity of that anime game last year, that I can't think of the name of... Main character in skimpy clothes, and many such camera angles in promotion.

Picked up the first for my Daughter, who loves cats (and calls herself half cat), because it's such an adorable game, with some pretty telegraphed Action RPG good times... And then picked up a copy for myself for those same reasons. Neither of us beat it, but I'm glad to see it was successful enough for them to make a sequel.

News Comments > Borderlands 3 Released

Thoroughly enjoying the (Melee Amara) gameplay so far, and it runs flawlessly for me on EGS... Does all the things I want, and none of the BS Steam does that I don't.

Coop is ridiculously easy to play with friends, and even after I left a coop game, and finished a quest before where we started at, it asked if I wanted to skip all the shit I did in another session.

Didn't enjoy coop FL4K as much though. Stealth skill seemed like it'd be great, but you really need a specific high damage weapon to benefit from the 3 shot part. But also felt like I just wasn't getting any interesting weapons on that character (yet).

The QoL changes are great too, though it also reminds me of the annoying shit that didn't change (Like tracking multiple quests on the map, or even being able to use the quest switching keys on the map screen).

But overall, good times, and I'm going back to fixate on it again ; ) ~18h played so far.

nobody cares if you snagged it.

Nobody cares that you don't care that I snagged it.

It's turtles all the way down from here.

So stop telling people you snagged a freebie. Nobody cares what you grabbed. People don't care if someone saved 15% or more on their car insurance. Rolleyes

Your ignorance is showing... And you don't speak for others... If you want to be a dick, maybe put a second more thought into it first ; )

The first story is quite lengthy but basically alleges both rape and some sort of industry blacklisting. Blue provided a brief summary so I'm not sure what the problem is. The second centers around Zoe Quinn and is totally unrelated.

As for the allegations themselves, I'll just re-iterate what I usually say and that without criminal prosecution its he/she said situations that don't seem to go anywhere. I don't subscribe to automatic belief/callout culture, we have legal systems in place to handle rapists and prevent them from hurting others. Once prosecuted we also have avenues such as impact statements and support systems to help victims move on and receive ongoing support if needed. It's not a perfect system but it's what we have. Callout culture is more flawed as every false accusation undermines overall credibility of all victims and adds to the burden of those that want to come forward. Both of these allegations seem to have happened in Canada which to my limited understanding of Canadian law has no statute of limitations so all the more reason to talk to the authorities instead of twitter.

About sums it up for me.
If it can be proven in a court of law then the perpetrators deserve to suffer the full weight of the law.

That pesky innocent until PROVEN guilty thing.

However it always makes me suspicious revealing such alleged crimes on "social media" vs. "the relevant Authorities" (referring to Zoe Quinn only.)

I'm lazy, and don't want to read the article heh... But did she state she didn't go to the authorities, or is this just more of people assuming shit didn't happen because of their own perceptions?

And I'm not asking this question so that dumb-assess can parade around thinking their opinion on something they know nearly nothing about is justified...

Had a crime happened (here or anywhere, rape or otherwise), and a person did not go to the authorities, can't you people think of a dozen... A hundred... Reasons why that person would be afraid to?

I mean... Ya'll are a bunch of Internet tough guys right? Some of you say some ridiculously stupid shit here, that you'd be afraid to say to half of the other people here in person, so can't you at least use a wee bit of that self-awareness to realize that it's also so much easier to have the 'courage' to say something online when it's so hard to say it elsewhere?

News Comments > Anthem Lead Ben Irving Leaving BioWare

12. Re: Anthem Lead Ben Irving Leaving BioWare Aug 16, 2019, 13:31 Alamar
 
I find all this publisher worship (positive or negative) to be silly, but I was never into celebrity obsession (even in gaming) either...

I don't care what EA or Activision are doing... Whether I buy their games or not... If an interesting game comes out, I don't much care who made it... It's judged on it's own. Thinking all future games from some pubs, or devs, will be shit, is just asinine.

I also thoroughly enjoyed Anthem, though I did 'burn out' on it fairly quickly. Just went back and obsessed over Division 2 though, so maybe I'll do the same with Anthem next... I'm sure both games have some nice improvements since I played them around launch.

I looked into the base game with their recent (quite large) sale... But holy hell, are people bashing the update. Wasn't sure I'd get much out of the game as it was, but I steered my $5 or so away due to that.
