Lol that's hilarious. Makes sense they have boners for Rome, when most COD games are about the New Roman Empire/USSA/Amerika.

the heroes of the modern warfare trilogy are british nationals. the villain is a four star american army general.

in ghosts, america is in ruins and it's military routed.

in advanced warfare, the heroes are american, british and russian military contractors. the villain is a private american corporation.

but yes, you're so right! so jingoistic guys I CAN'T EVEN

i've been a scrolls lover since morrowind, like many i'm sure, and i savored the chance to play this game for the same reason as you; but ultimately i found it large, dull and empty. the gameplay was utterly snooze inducing. there were also some contradictions with established lore that really drove home that this was a team of outsiders writing the game to me.

i think this is the first time they looped back to another game. they gave Nox away back in january, too, and then have just been doing free battlefield DLC since then.

vaguely similar to Dune, which also didn't have guns. i believe it's a technology stagnation/availability thing. in the game the world has been on the decline for centuries since some big catastrophe and technologies aren't able to be replaced as they fail. it's a pretty depressing world honestly.

There are guns in Dune. Projectile weapons were used by the houses, but generally became obsolete , since people employed Holtzman shields, which would stop normal projectiles.

They also use lasguns, but those are not used as often because of the lasgun-shield effect, which causes a massive nuclear explosion.

Vehicles tend to have some sort of projectile weaponry, along with rocket launchers.

i understand that. i said "vaguely similar" because while guns are available in both worlds they are a rarity; in dune because of technological advancement, in technomancer due to stagnation, but the result is the same with an emphasis on hand to hand combat and supplemental techniques and technologies. i didn't think anyone wanted a treatise about dune in a thread about a video game. whoops.

i've been using a la-z-boy swivel rocker as my computer chair for 18 years now. maybe it's something about the angle, but it's just perfect for me, i never get wrist pain or anything.

Looks like reviewers have mixed feelings about the game.
"Professional" reviews go from 80 to 50 on Metacritic.
http://www.metacritic.com/game/playstation-4/the-technomancer/critic-reviews

that's about what it's predecessor ran. usually people criticized how blunt and abrupt the writing for quests could be (totally true), and the combat. the combat is extremely unforgiving, i've heard it compared to dark souls in that regard.

some people just don't get it - totalbiscuit did some really harsh video about it criticizing how there were no parries or counters, which there are, he just didn't understand it.

i mean as long as you know you're going into a game made by a team of 15 or so people on a tight budget i think you won't be disappointed.

pretty funny that robert jordan was the biggest name in fantasy when GRRM was trying to get his footing and a song of ice and fire hit the mainstream.
I loved the first few Jordan books....but the success all went to his head. He started writing drivel by the pound and becoming the living incarnation of petulance. Whereas GoT should get multiple seasons per book, Jordan's works could be easily boiled down to multiple books per season. So many wasted pages on minutae and loose threads....

i've read that the series was supposed to be a trilogy, then a cycle of 7, but Tor Books kept throwing more huge advances to him to extend the series. from books 6 to 9 i'd say it really showed. at least he got back on track with knife of dreams before he passed.

i loved the predecessor, Mars: War Logs.

kind of game people would describe as "having lots of heart". awesome atmosphere, combat and world building but clearly under-budgeted. this new title reportedly cost 5 times as much and looks awesome.

if anyone is curious, check out war logs, it's 3 dollars on the steam sale. worth it in my opinion. just don't expect mass effect and you should have a great time.

Whenever GoT is over, I hope HBO is the unannounced studio that will be doing Wheel of Time.

oh shit, i had no idea! i'm fucking hyped!

never thought it would happen just due to the abundant fantasy elements and how expensive it would likely be to shoot. even GoT tones down the fantasy elements for mainstream audiences, and it didn't have much to begin with.

Wouldn't call Unity a "modern engine," except in the sense it is built for the "modern" ipad gamer.

oh?

the old blood felt badly paced and overlong. it was a struggle to finish it.

i hope the time spent on it didn't delay the new order 2 overmuch.

I never understood the attraction of tweets. Then again, I am old.

I love it as a way to get quick info from a company to see if there's a problem. For example, when Battle.Net is down for some reason, they usually post. I sure as hell don't care what all the commoners are tweeting though.

it annoys me that i have to sift through twitter to find that info now instead of a website update or something.

they focused on big content-addition dlc for their past few games, it's a shame to see them returning to basically horse armor. hopefully this junk is just cash grab filler between real dlc content.

i guess the lively mod life of skyrim has convinced them they can convert those downloads into sales and turn FO4 into a steady income platform of sorts. they're probably right.

It's incremental and it starts at 5%. Labor at a restaurant is typically 30% of running expenses, so that minimum wage increase is increasing their costs around 2%, and it doesn't even go into effect until next year. You're "really awesome" restaurant is clearly using this as an excuse to screw over its customers.
^^^ So this. ^^^

They were probably looking for a way to decrease their discount cards and now they can blame it on taxes.
Some customers will never grasp the bigger picture.

Since you appear adamant about instigating another foul-mouthed conflict I'll drop this headline in your lap and let you ponder the potential ramifications; aka the bigger picture.
You're in full agreement with the higher minimum wage, get over yourself.

i recall that he's brought up before he's some kind of software developer who doesn't make much more than this and resents that the underclasses are now on equal footing with him since their jobs "don't warrant a living wage", unlike his.

Come on Blizzard, you finally had something good with D3 and you're ditching it(stopping developing real new content)? You better be working on D4 or something.

I would imagine they are in full-swing working on the second expansion that is supposed to release this year.

Supposed? As far as I know there's no plans for a second expansion. It should have been here already if there was one I think...

they had a listing for an art director in the diabloverse last year. anything more than that is speculation. it could be more d3 content or world of diablo.

i am curious to see what beamdog does in the future, after david gaider quit bioware to go be beamdog's "creative director".

i hope the gameplan is more than "three ex-bioware employees dig through the bones of 20-year-dead games".
