I feel like if we just commit to reducing the population of the planet by 80% we'll be ok. Of course, nobody is going to volunteer, but there are several countries begging to have their entire populations controlled due to the blatant disregard for environmental pollution anyway. And two of those countries contain most of the worlds population anyway.

Bonus! No more complaining about Indian or Chinese people taking your jobs!

Double bonus! No more human rights violations from China!

The game that runs like crap on any PC, no matter how beefy! I got it on Steam sale last year and my PC won't even run it at a decent fps, even though it way exceeds the recommended specs.

Ugh. THis expansion seems pretty lame compared to....well, any of the other expansions. No new race. No new class. But you can sort of play WC3 inside WoW now, so...yay?

They've gone Everquest. Endless new expansions with no new tech. I think it's about time for WoW 2.

News Comments > Assassin's Creed Origins Released
42. Re: Assassin's Creed Origins Released Oct 28, 2017, 17:18 Agent.X7
 
My girlfriend got the CE edition. They failed to ship it on time, so they sent her a code to download on PS4. So, I tried it out for a few minutes before going back to Shadow of War today.

By which I mean I downloaded it at 10AM, started it at 10:30, and realized at 4PM that I hadn't eaten lunch and I have a concert to attend tonight.

The world looks awesome. My only grips are that I killed the main baddie of the starting area without even knowing he was the main baddie. I was trying to finish a side quest and stealth killed a guy and *whoops* cut scene. That and the stupid controller changes just for the sake of change. Even the alternative controller layout isn't great. (Especially if you are playing SoW and are used to that...)

Between this, SoW, GW2:Path of Fire and STILL trying to finish Zelda....

I bought it on PS4 to beat the story. Just like I did with SoM. Then I trade it in and buy the PC GotY on STeam sale for $9.

This year's trade in will go toward Mario Odyssey.

Yeah, Charlotte is vying to be the choice. Great for my industry; Multifamily housing. My rents will double over 10 years and we will make an even bigger fortune...for the owners and execs in my management company. Not so good for service industry workers or anybody else who doesn't want to pay Uptown prices for an apartment 30 minutes from Uptown. (And Uptown prices? Damn. Already over $1500 for a tiny, tiny studio apartment.)

Suspect in Starbucks robbery may sue man who stopped him.

The insanity of this could only exist in the USA.. Too bad he didn't kill him.

Tries to rob store, gets stopped, pulls knife, gets disarmed and the guy who stopped him proceeds to stab him.

I don't know about you guys, but I would definitely stab the guy who tried to stab me.

Only in California. Hey man, I used a deadly weapon to commit armed robbery and now I want to sue the guy who stopped me! Mommy and daddy say I'm not a bad man!

Moron is lucky to be alive. I'd have just popped him in the back of the skull and not risked physical injury tackling him. Let's see, automatic defenses to homicide charges: Stopping a felony in progress. Armed robbery? Pretty damned confident that is a felony in all 50 states.

It's like Uncharted. The games are so good, why do they feel we need a movie retelling? Maybe if they did stories in between the games, but this just doesn't appeal to me.

No, you weren't. And who, specifically, is being hypocritical? Or is it always your tendency to paint a certain race with such a wide brush? Word for that...

It's easy. If you're white, just think of it as a word that doesn't belong to you, so you don't get to use it. Why would you want to, anyway? Was there some situation where you really wanted to say it, but didn't want to be criticized or get your ass kicked? Strange thing for a white guy to be up in arms about, unless you just need another silly thing to hold against black people.

You lost me when you claimed to know my whereabouts and experiences better than I. Better luck arguing next time. Maybe take a debate class.

Didn't the PS2 already have an emotion blablabla marketing buzzword bullshit device?

This is going to go the exact same way as the dedicated physics processing thing, whatever it was called.

PhysX, which sold to NVidia for millions and is now powering physics in just as many games as Havok on PC, PS4, XBone and more? Yeah, that turned out so poorly for them.

Yeah, fear mongering!

copper levels as low as 3.5 mg/L have been reported to cause symptoms
of copper poisoning in humans.

You would die of alcohol poisoning LONG before you absorbed enough copper from a mule mug to get sick from. We KNOW copper leaches from the mug into the drink. Kind of the point. A multivitamin contains way more copper than you'll ever get from a mule. Goddamn politicians trying to justify their existence.

That GoT VFX video was impressive (I saw the last one they did about BoB). I guess I should actually watch the series at some point.

And the Sea Fleas..... holy shit watch the video the dad made in the article.

And thanks Blue... we were getting close on the appliance disaster deadline.

Yeah, people wonder why I stay out of the ocean. Too. Many. Critters.

I played in the alpha/beta, and it hasn't changed at all during the course of that.. which was over at least a year? Maybe two?

80% of the game is just: start mission -> go explore and beat on everything in the environment getting materials for 10 minutes (gets blueprints for traps and weapons, premade traps and weapons, and building parts for everything) -> find mission area (usually with a timer) and build a makeshift defense.

The defense part usually consisted of about 10-20% of the actual gameplay. The rest is just beating on things to get a miniscule amount of parts to make a shitty gun (that breaks with use) and hope you get lucky in the "loot pinatas" (loot boxes) you get from playing the game. Or you can buy them, of course, with real money.

Actual gameplay is very arcadey, which isn't a bad thing, but it makes all the weapons feel very same-y. There are randomized stats, but it was negligible IIRC. It might be okay for younger kids if they enjoy all those mechanics, but really, the farming will get tedious because it feels unrewarding and it takes a LOT of farming, all the time, to do anything significant.

Huh, I have been playing since day one and it has changed a ton. I actually liked the first version where the creeps only came out at night and you had all day to build and then had to hide or be very careful at night. Now you can build forever until you decide to start the waves of baddies.
