Too safe is a very diplomatic way of saying it was boring to the point of being shit.

And that's why you don't pre-order games :-)

I learnt my lesson with Arkham Knight. And while they were able to fix the technical issues in the game, you can't really fix the flawed gameplay mechanics in a game like Mass Effect 4, well you can, but they're not going to.

News Comments > Starbreeze Investing in System Shock 3

System Shock 2 was one of the most fun Co-op games I've ever played. And also still one of the best single player games at the time. It has not dated well though. I still remember the first door code to this day lol.

I'm hoping SS3 will provide a similar coop experience where you can upgrade each player in to specific roles.

Had so much fun with 4 players in SS2, we had two weapons specialists (one in heavy weapons, and one in energy weapons) escorting a psi-specialist and a hacker. It allowed us to explore and open every area and container. Really fun.

Holy shit! Look at that map for how much Lyme has spread in the last 14 years. Thanks Obama/Bush! And now with the GOP completely gutting healthcare and social spending this is going to become and epidemic.

Most of this was predicted. Below and hidden for obvious reasons:

(Luke 21:7,10,11)

7 Then (Jesus disciples) questioned (Jesus), saying: "Teacher, when will these things actually be, and what will be the sign when these things are to occur?"

10 Then (Jesus) said to (his disciples): "Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. 11 There will be great earthquakes, and in one place after another food shortages and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and from heaven great signs.

What's fascinating about this prophecy isn't so much that he said there would be "pestilences" (fatal epidemic diseases) today because anyone can say "diseases have been with humanity since the beginning of time." I would agree with this conclusion. However, what Jesus was implying, and this is worth noting, is that he said pestilences would exist "in one place after another" (even prosperous countries like the U.S.). This situation would exist notwithstanding all the advances in medicine and medical science. In other words, Jesus predicted diseases would appear and spread at a rate faster than our modern medicine would be able to keep up. Many of them even baffle medical doctors as they note disease strains that are resistance to the strongest antibodies. It's not an accident; this is prophecy slowly unfolding since 1914.

That "prediction" is so generic it's really just a basic description of every single moment of humanities constant struggle. I doubt there has been a single year where humankind has not had conflict in one part of the world while there also being some kind of epidemic in another.

This religious scripture BS is just an excuse people use to justify their apathy.


How about we look at cause and effect instead. The cause of most of the environmental problems are because of animal agriculture (as the root cause).

The sooner people stop buying animal products, the fewer crops we'll need (to feed 80+ billion cows/pigs/sheep etc), and the sooner it'll enable us to recover the lost habitats that are needed for larger predators, which will put these mice and other pest populations back into equilibrium.

Stopping eating animal products is the most impactful (and easy!) thing each one of us can do to help the environment, which keeps us alive.

Also the best way to stop this bird flu is to stop eating chicken. If farmers have no demand, they'll stop breeding 40 billion chickens each year, dramatically lowering the chances of it being carried to humans.

It's not bad, especially in co-op. But there is no way I'd pay more than $5 for this. It feels like an old game.

Yep, 'cause mankind never killed animals until rich dorks decided to shoot them with guns for entertainment. Rolleyes

I'm strongly opposed to other methods of animal harm too. But the game isn't about that so I didn't feel the need to mention it. And that's a stupid argument anyway, you're trying to justify something because of "other people do it/did it". That kind of reasoning would allowed me to rape, murder and do whatever else humanity does that isn't ethical. Because other people do those things...it makes it all fine

I know right? I guess it would be telling to remind him that humanity is rife with examples. For example, the ancient Assyrians loved to hunt animals for sport. Assyrian king Ashurbanipal [Ash-Er-Ban-Eh-Pool] (687-627 BC) had lions captured, imported and then released. The British Museum and Its Collections states, "the hunt itself was often more of a massacre than a contest."* (page 245, just above paragraph 8) The Assyrians also hunted humans in ruthless warfare. At Nahum 3:1, Bible writer Nahum referred to Ninevah (the Assyrian capital) as a "city of bloodshed," and with good reason. Soldiers played catch with human heads. Ashurbanipal once boasted, "Many captives from among them I burned with fire ... From some, I cut off their noses, their ears, and their fingers ... of many I put out the eyes. I made one pillar of the living, and another of heads."

I think a video game about hunting virtual wild animals is considerably better.

* you can see the Assyrians killing a lion via an Assyrian wall carving on pages 246-247 of the British Museum collection catalog.

So because people hunted for food out of necessity in the past, and because some other people in history were brutal, we should tolerate the animal suffering for sport and to boost someone's ego?

Honestly I'm glad if people play this game instead of going out to kill real animals who don't want to die for someone's misguided sense of pleasure. But what I'm saying is that the people who hunt in real life, this day and age, as massive c**ts.

If they want to bring back extinct species, it should be ones that actually still have an environment to live in. Especially those that have gone extinct due to humanities doing. It would be ethical then.

But it's not ethical to bring back a creature for entertainment. That's wrong.

Where I live, when patients are too big to fit in the hospital CT machine, they actually send them to the local zoo, because they have a CT scanner big enough for zoo animals.

"Your turn is next, right after the rhino is finished, sir."

How embarrassing :S

That wasn't a TV series in the normal sense, more of a miniseries. A Dune series on the scale of the Battlestar Galactica remake, if well done, would be very cool.

Indeed!

It's official -- Legendary Pictures has signed the very talented Denis Villeneuve to direct the exciting new DUNE series film project.

Now that's actually a movie that needs rebooting. The first half of it is excellent, but then they ran out of money or time or both, because the 2nd half of the movie is really rushed. Perhaps it needed to be several movies or a even a series.

Yeah if only someone made a Dune TV series, that would be awesome...
