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.

While that T-rex study might have had the best intentions..

I feel like they couldn't actually know for sure, it's a best guess based off skeletal make up and ligament bind points. They have a SWAG (Scientific Wild Ass Guess) idea how strong those ligaments were, how strong the bones were and how dense the muscle mass could have been.

I kind of doubt the T-Rex would have been a successful predator if it couldn't move above a slow walk. DO they think it perched in trees and jumped down on unsuspecting prey? Or hid in the bushes until something just walked into its jaws?

He makes you believe the lines he delivers are his own

Yeah, he just always delivers them as the same character. I get the gravitas aspect... but that's about it. He's really good at playing...himself. The 2 times he didn't play himself (maybe i'll let Hitchcock or Titus make it 3) I was impressed with his work... but the rest of his characters are very interchangeable.

That's a lot of actors though. Morgan Freeman, Robert DeNiro, Stallone, etc.

I don't hate everything Bay has done. Bad Boys, The Rock, hell, I even Like Armageddon and The Island. But lately he has not directed anything worth watching. Transformers is the worst, AND Bay has come up with a formula that he now uses in EVERY movie he directs, and it is very annoying. Also, his slo-mo shots that pan around actors, ugh. He's become a parody of himself.

Haha, yeah, common core has eliminated learning things in schools now.

Could not get into WD2. Loved the first one. The second put the story in the background and was too much like GTA for me.

Um the heli controls sucked on Mouse and Keyboard AND controller. There is no way to side strafe, and overall they just suck. Myself and mrgrosser were both hating them. At least with say BF3/BF4 they are fine with a mouse and keyboard, and in GTA you probably want a gamepad, but they need reworked badly.

Agreed. Vehicles were crap overall, which is bad because you will need them to get around. Very mediocre. AI was also not good.

Already ordered Horizon. The videos from that game just make me want to play it. THis game is a Steam sale at best.

And hear I thought the only thing they did that changed everything was the stupification chip that makes people think anything on that list was unique to the iPhone and gets them to plunk down $600 every year or so for the newest version.

Yes, thank you! I read that and felt dumber for it. How about 10 things that happened without the iPhone even needing to exist?

Princess Leia Organa of Alderaan, may your halogram forever project and live on in greatness.

From what im hearing she actually didnt drink at all...just what i heard

"Cocaine is a hell of a drug"

Yup, her with her massive coke habit in the 80s and George Michael with his Heroin. Still sucks.
