News Comments > New Borderlands Confirmed

I didn't play much of the first Borderlands so I don't know how it stacked up to the second title in regards to the writing quality of Mikey Neumann but Anthony Burch really made the second title an amazing treat.

What do you mean?

This is more tinfoil hat territory in regards to putting a high-profile titles behind a Prime wall.

The buyer will claim that they received an empty box and Amazon will either reimburse you for it or send an additional copy with little to no investigation since they're more interested in protecting the customer. I had a real dick head friend who bought a GTX 970 off Amazon, pulled this shit, and had another one sent to him with barely any issues or questioning.

The Prime price may be used as a method to off-set or minimize the costs of such scams since high-profile titles sell like hot cakes while being 'cheap' enough to appeal to a larger audience of scammers.

Like I said, this is likely more of a tinfoil hat thought.

I wonder if it has anything to do with empty box scams.

Here you have these great projects like StarCraft, Heroes of the Storm, Hearthstone, World of Warcraft, and then you're sitting on the smoking pile of a cancelled project.

Kaplan confirms Diablo 3 as "not great"! But really, it would have been nice to read what they failed at horrifically and more information about Titan than just throwing everyone under the bus and turn it in to an ad for Overwatch.

E: You guys beat me to this punch.

I was somewhat looking forward to Legion until I found out it's more of the same WoD mechanics as far as the mini-game with followers on missions, or FACEBOOK as this video says.

Totally ruined my expectations to not have to shuffle followers on missions over and over day after day.

Under no circumstances should you ever watch Heel videos if you want accurate information. That's like getting your news from The National Enquirer.

Is Amazon gated behind really shitty regional dealings though? Like, in Canada, will we get more independent films from India over quality content or will we have content parity with those who subscribe to it from the US which makes us all winners?

That's really all I want to know. I can't get Bob's Burgers anymore from Netflix.

Living in Atlantic Canada means you need to reconsider the weather every ten minutes. Could be nice and sunny and then all the sudden Zeus wants to play a couple rounds of bowling.

1. Petition for Legacy World of Warcraft Servers Passes 150k Apr 18, 2016, 10:26 Wallshadows
 
I'd have no issue if they did. It would no doubt attract the private server crowd because they would be playing in an environment which is the authentic vanilla experience without the worry that they'll be shut down at any given time. $15 for peace of mind, fully scripted encounters, no shit lord admins, and a professional network backbone which won't crash several times a day or cause rollbacks is a better deal than many of the alternatives which are left in the wake of Nostalrius which may be next on the chopping block.

The number of servers required is always ambiguous though. Do you want both PvE and PvP? For each region? What about the expansions? What timezone would they occupy?

There's likely no way Blizzard would foot the bill on support staff either. They have enough hatred towards this that I doubt they'd throw even more money towards support so you'd likely be in a 'shit out of luck' scenario if anything were to happen outside of their automated loot retrieval system.

Last but not least, a large part of what made those older titles great were the people I played with and how new and epic it felt which simply cannot be re-captured at this point. Far too many of my friends from back then have quit and raiding no longer feels as exciting as it did.

There needs to be some kind of give and take if texting were allowed. For example, allow folks to text with vibrate setting only but allow moviegoers to tell parents who bring their baby or annoying child to get the fuck out when they start acting like annoying shit lords.

I played through the first two and enjoyed most of my time while doing so. Infinite, on the other hand, didn't really do anything for me but gave me a good chuckle at how racist their floating city is.

O/T: I wish Steam would create an entirely separate client specifically for Greenlight programs and indie titles to fuck off to. This way I wouldn't have to be bombarded by rogue-like retro voxel-based simulators shitting all over the place.

Do this for Humble Bundle too.

I'm honestly surprised to see 7 Days to Die continue to be refined and polished. It might be stuck in the eternal Early Access grind but each new update really improves upon the product and the only thing it's missing at this point is to introduce basic automation.

It's even cheaper on GMG. You can stack the 20% discount code on top of the 33% discount.
