I'm way more excited for my Steampad showing up today than either FO4 or SC2:3... I've been waiting on starting Witcher3 until I got it.

Yeah, I have been waiting to start Mad Max with it.

Call in sick? No no no, I'm on a post-apocalyptic, tomb raiding, starcrafting vacation!

Seriously, all 3 games I have been looking forward to came out on the same day, AND the Steam controller. (And yes, I bought CEs for them all! MWAHAHAHAHA!)

The bad part is I am waiting for UPS and Fedex. (Tomb Raider CE was online order only, Best Buy was the only place I found with the Fallout4 CE - Back on June 19th! - and Amazon is sending the Starcraft II one. I will laugh hysterically if Newegg delivers the new motherboard I am reviewing for them today as well. Who needs Christmas, I have November 10th!

Almost guarateed that Sony assigns Uncharted to another developer. The people who made Golden Abyss did a fantastic job, and there are more stories from Drake's past they can tell.

So they own the IP, and not ND (honestly don't know, I'm asking)? I know the mobile was an outside dev, but I didn't know if that was something ND cooked up, or sony?

Honestly, at this point, I want to see another Last of Us (which they basically say is coming), minus Joel and Ellie.


Oh, they own the IP because they own Naughty Dog. That's why you'll never see ND games on another platform. Also why ND got away with saying they weren't working on an HD re-release of Uncharted, even though everyone knew it was coming. Sony assigned it to someone else, so technically ND wasn't lying.

I just hope to see a PS4 version of Golden Abyss someday.

Yup. I'm past the point where I can sit upright all day and play a game, but I can make something for myself for WAY less money. Awesome concept, though.

probably half the posts on blues are troll posts, yet you expect to be exempted from it... why? cuz your beliefs are more special than the rest of us?

of course he does - that is the main appeal of christianity... the feeling of being "special" and "important", or to put it in more exact terms "THE CHOSEN PEOPLE"

what does that mean? let me break it down for you very quickly.. (and im only touching on this point briefly because there are many more and we would be here all day if you want the long story) ...

its not just that they are special, they are CHOSEN by the CREATOR of ALL THINGS, to be the most important people on the earth... see? its not that they have decided it amongst themselves, the lowly humans they are... but that the fucking CREATOR of ALL UNIVERSES has specifically awarded them with this most prestigious honor

now, this is only one of many many many points which combine to form the juggernaut of ignorance that is modern christianity... but in these discussions you are either preaching to the choir or yelling at a wall... so, im out

Preaching to the troll choir, eh?

and still feel that Vader is the greatest Sci-Fi film villain of all time.

Sorry but that title actually belongs to Jar-Jar Binks.

greatest books have closure

One thing that bothers me about sequels too is the wasted page count on summarizing characters/events for new readers. You get this patronizing tone where characters refer to past events in unnatural ways just to explain everything, it sucks. That said there is the rare author who can manage to make something relatively self contained that still leaves open a few plot threads in case they want to revisit it later. The Traitor Baru Cormorant by Seth Dickinson is a recent example of that.

Unfortunately most of the publishing houses now try to lock up authors for long term book contracts when they achieve a modicum of success and the terms usually dictate a sequel or two.

Have you read the Takeshi Kovacs books by Richard Morgan?

I mean really, is that an outstanding career? That's borderline "You next job is managing the Space MCDonalds".

Yeah, but he killed the shit out of those younglings, right? No one can ever take that away from him.

Yeah, when I was a kid, I saw Star Wars and Empire in a double showing on Empire's wide release day. Saw Jedi on release day. I read all 3 novilizations. The Vader alluded to in the novels and movies was a complete badass that happened to be bested by heroes. His history was dark and mostly unexplored.

Then Lucas gets old and all of the sudden Vader built C3PO and whined and was just a giant bitch all around. Ugh.

About that DarkHorizons article. The article headline mentions "White" but the article itself doesn't mention race anywhere, only age and sex. Kind of scummy if you ask me.

you havent heard? its impossible to be racist against white people

A lot of people certainly seem to believe that.

Follow the money. He is a huge contributor to the Democratic party. It doesn't take a big leap in logic to see how Hillary benefits from his price gouging and her immediatly leaping in, promising to do something.

Do you have a source? Shkreli's $2,700 donation to Bernie Sanders was in the news, and Sanders returned it. And then I see a lot of references to a $33,400 donation to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. $30-40K doesn't seem to put him in Bloomberg or Koch brother territory. If it's that easy, then I can go out and buy a politician.

Not about buying a politician. About helping your party get what they want. He takes a nice public fall to boost her popularity.

And people love to shout conspiracy nut right up until it turns out to be true. Benghazi? No, Surely Hillary is above...nope can't even finish that sentence in jest.

I wish Imprimis great success. As an aside, I wish there was some way to charge the Shkreli's of the world with murder when their price gouging causes people to die.

I'm really puzzled both how he got to be a CEO, and why his board didn't drop his ass like a hot potato, when he chose to act out and have his little tantrums.

When the game reaches 5 bucks, I will.

Yep!!!! They blew it and even if they gave it away to PC players, I would be hesitant. WB should just get out of making any PC game.

They did give it away. I got it for free with one of my cards. Played for about 20 minutes. Laughed hysterically when the fps bottomed out when driving the battank thing. Yeah, what a great bundle game! Show me how with SLI'd 970s I can still achieve single digit fps in a game!

Gaming Law:
If you buy early, expect to pay more. If you wait, expect to pay less.

I know! But pay less does not mean get it for free. Then again, I could agree if they gave the base game for free as long as they would in a way honor the support of those who paid for the game that they're giving away for free by offering their loyal player base a rebate on the expansion. But the veterans get NOTHING, the newbies get a complete free game. And this is plain WRONG. Oh my, whatever. Won't look back and have plenty of other games to play. ArenaNet is now on my shit list - no more money from me. That's the only message they understand. I can wait till they offer the expansion for free.

Entitlement always leads to butthurt when the real world comes knocking.

I totally get that too. If they were not playing the Mets, I would have 100% been rooting for the Cubbies.

Could be worse. Could have been Lucas producing and he would have gone back to change the prediction in the movies to the Mets for the 35th anniversary.
