I'd rather see #1 redone, was a great game.

Same. I remember being blown away by the story telling and ending of it all. Mafia 2 never grabbed me the same way but I heard good things about it. I just could never get into it the same way Mafia 1 had me.

Mafia 2 still isn't terribly looking. I mean the trench coat does flap... so it has that going for it, lol.

Mafia 1 on the other hand was as good as it got prior to physics being introduced on everything these days. I would love to see a full blown remake. With that remake however, at least fix the racing segment in the game, lol.

And the world setting was so much more involved/complete in 1 than 2 (never played 3).

Cruising down town surrounded by tall buildings, taking rips out in the hills/country side with expansive views. It felt like a small world, not a small sandbox.

Real cops who pulled you over for speeding was mind blowing for an early open world game. But it still had plenty of goofball in it. I remember doing wheel stands in the drag car then hitting an open draw bridge and flying through the air. And the race was brutal, I must've tried it a dozen+ times before I beat it, one of the few complaints I had with the game.

#2 felt like a bland,empty GTA clone, looked pretty for the time, but that was about it.

of course, they're blatantly ripping off CStrike with no fucks given, but wasn't their League of Legends a ripoff of DOTA? so it's not their first time ripping off a game.

The alt-fire of the knife looks like they used CSGO's animation.

I setup my Index today and was messing around in The Lab to test things out: I legit jumped when a Jack in the Box I was cranking popped out of the box. Getting used to fending off Headcrabs in VR is gonna be... non-trivial.

Just a word of warning, if you have anything breakable nearby be absolutely sure you move them or protect them somehow. I have slammed my old TV screen with the controller while swinging a virtual sword around. Luckily nothing broke, but know it is quite easy to lose track of your location in the virtual space.


It just adds to the immersion.

Like boxing.

A Short Hike was my favourite indie game of last year. Fantastic game


Very fun but a bit short. Definitely worth the price of free though, great fun on a play through, not so sure on a second.

Man, I'm 10 hours into this game and this is how I'm feeling about it.

I'm just going straight for the missions and saying fuck the shit like cooking and crafting
The game is a grind, it takes a while to get anything rewarding like a lot of money, etc. I just found the side stuff and chores kind of fun. Most of it goes towards your karma.

There's a burned out town to the west (I think?) of your camp, there's a gold bar hidden in it that can be sold for ~500 to the fence. You can get the gold any time, but need to unlock the fence (via the story) to sell it. After that it's breezy.

Because he got publicity and money doing it this way. His publicist insists he didn't believe in the flat earth theory, but used it for promotion and to raise funds.

We're not in agreement because I didn't say that. And now you're being childish. You keep fabricating claims and insisting I made them while accusing me of being emotional. Remember that word projection?

Please note that this is exactly the kind of dishonesty I was taking Crytek to task for.

Again, semantics. You said he did not care about the SUBJECT, aka the TRUTH behind it and was willing to post things you thought were wrong (aka not provided in the source.).

Again, talk in circle ALL you want. You made the claim.

It's more defense of reason, but I understand now that you're not willing or able to assess this subject objectively.

You're welcome to defend however you like. Your post history says other wise.

Again, that's not what I said. I suggested he might not be invested in the subject. Please work on your reading comprehension because having your own argument misstated repeatedly is honestly a bit frustrating.


No of course. Complaining about responsible reporting, directed at Blue, claiming what he was reporting was clearly a lie then complaining "alternate facts" right after wasn't direct towards him either, but the unnamed who you name now.

Again you TRY to appear impartial. But it appears as though you have an agenda. Proof is in the pudding dear.

Korrd wrote on Jan 8, 2020, 16:03:
I suggest we let this go. There's clearly no middle ground to be reached as our positions are logically incompatible and we're already going in circles trying to establish a common perspective of reality. I appreciate that you took the time to participate even if it was ultimately fruitless. Maybe we'll have better luck next time.

You suggest I do something you don't can't do yourself? Sorry but no. If you're going to call out people like this I'll gladly call you on that.

I've been here a couple of years, I'm not going anywhere either. If you want some blatant attempt to smear the site operator to go unchecked do it on a sub you run. Maybe you could even provide relevant news articles.

Maybe next time you're unhappy with what you read, submit an alternative/updated one rather than crying people aren't researching what they post.

I'm sorry you're having such a hard time with this. I truly am. But it's not semantics. You even quoted the sentence in question, where I clearly state my position. I'm just not sure how you can argue with how words work.

You maybe didn't notice, but it's not SC/CIG I've been defending all this time.

Your account (and how it acts like other pro SC accounts...) is here for that though. Defense of SC/CiG. You can TRY to be seen as impartial, but any viewing of your post history shows other wise. Talk in circles all you like dear, the bias is obvious.

Korrd wrote on Jan 8, 2020, 13:51:
I'm the type who tries to have a dialogue with other readers when I feel the need. I admit I expected a more equitable one than I got, but the attempt was earnest.

You're the type to try and affiliate Blue with "alternative facts", without directly saying it (again, because you are TRYING to be viewed as impartial, but you aren't.) then saying someone doesn't care about the truth as they aren't emotionally invested in this video game like you are.

Dialogue ? No, that's an agenda.

No, dear, I'm afraid that's not logically sound.

I didn't accuse Blue of not caring about the truth; I said maybe he doesn't care enough about the story to remember the past details and use them to contradict new claims.

Oh my that's cute dear. You can argue the semantics of it all you like. They both say the same thing. That Blue did not care enough about the truth.


lol.

All over the fact the Blue posted a verbatim quote, and the SC fanboys were upset it wasn't from a news source they wanted, that wasn't submitted.

You either care about the truth all the time... or you don't actually care about the truth. One doesn't need to be a zealot for a particular cause or entity (or biased against their counterpart) to care that details about those things be proliferated accurately and fairly. That seems like a clear logical fallacy to me.


Ah yes, the actual facts. The fact that you literally said Blue did not care for the truth ISN'T in fact accusing him of not caring.

It's unreal. I'm sorry Blue isn't a SC/CiG fanatic that he's read every bit about them and engages with everyone about it. The fact you think that's reasonable compared to what he does shows how deep you are into this cult like mentality.

I mean shit you could've submitted an updated article, but instead accused him of not caring enough about 1 topic in a myriad of others to devout his time to something YOU'RE interested in.


Korrd wrote on Jan 7, 2020, 14:54:

Continue in your stalwart defense of SC/CiG, it's enjoyable to watch the guys ONLY comment on this (and the 1 or 2 other posts they have so they can claim they are here for everything!) then act/pretend if they aren't so biased they just lie to support it. Mind you, you're the type to cry to a site operator directly in a thread as opposed to provide the material to him to post so it seems an argument is all you were after.

If you would actually do a little reading into any of what I have posted, and not cherry-pick post/sentences that fit your argument, you would see I have posted on several other topics other than SC topics, and I don't actually defend SC like you claim I do (actually I have had doubts bout it, and frankly don't care). I have defended myself from posters like your self and have bashed a few people over dumb posts over a gaming web site, but you keep on keeping I guess ... makes you feel good at night I guess.


Ya I know, I already said you did that.

Maybe you should try reading before accusing others of not. I mean the entire thing was a reply to you. Though, like I admitted I thought it was you when it turned out to be voodoo who was sensitive so that part I was off about.

What the actual fuck? I suggested Blue might not remember past details of the CIG/Crytek story--and thus be unable to directly refute bogus claims on the fly--and that constitutes an insult in your mind? Are you really so thin-skinned or just all about the whiteknighting? As I said, he might not have remembered because the details weren't important to him; i.e., he was just reporting a story and happened to not read/remember the documents in question. It wasn't an accusation; it's an understandable position to be in when your job is to post dozens or even hundreds of stories a week. I cannot imagine why you think that's an insult.

I've stated my reason for commenting here, so I should hope it's clear. Read my previous posts if you need a refresher. I think--or at least hope--you know what I meant by the above "insult" and are just playing the offense card. And lastly, I am not a fanatic--about anything.

Let me know if there's anything else you need explained in greater detail. I can use smaller words if needed.

You and Steve piled on Blue for posting an article, because it didn't contain what YOU guys wanted from a DIFFERENT article that wasn't submitted.
Two people raising concerns is hardly piling on. And it seems to me that on a topic as frequently discussed as this lawsuit, that expecting a basic understanding of the details from previous posts (that did appear on Blue's) to persist isn't exactly unreasonable. Maybe I'm wrong and Blue doesn't care enough about the subject to remember those earlier details, and that's understandable--memory tends to work that way--but I do wish that familiarity persisted and allowed for calling out of falsehoods when they inevitably appear. I mean, the quote that CIG "was forced to confirm [...] that no such switch had taken place" is literally a lie, but if anyone points that out in comments--after more susceptible readers have accepted it as fact based on the posting--they're labeled fanboys or worse.

I readily admit--again--that I may be asking too much and that even cursory fact-checking just isn't reasonable to expect; all I can do is express my concern (see: frustration) and hope for the best. Blue's has been my chief source of game news for many years and I don't expect that to change; I just wish we could head off the shitstorm that is every CIG/Crytek post.
