I wish I could make money off the amount of robocalls I get. I'd probably make a thousand dollars which is almost enough to buy a flat of beer.

I use Steam reviews all the time. Sort by recent and read a few of those. I definitely avoid a game if the reviews are in the mixed area, or at least scrutinize it more.

If the news is big enough to earn the ire of the internet and eats non-stop flak from gaming news outlets then that's where I hit the breaks rather than rely on user reviews. For indie games, Jim Sterling is my Greenlight bullshit hound but I rarely, if ever, browse those titles anyway.

So, I guess I am a bit of a hypocrite since I basically do the same but from an alternate source. I'm such a fat bastard.

It's cute how they use character names like we actually give a fuck and know what they're talking about.

Good review is good although 60% is still more than I would have given RE0.

Time to point our attention to RE2.

We need more great people like MLK Jr these days. People who can do more than rally their base, but reach across divides and get people together.

You mean to tell me Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are not pillars to the black community?

Glad they added Shaman to the build now if only they coughed up the Destruction spec.

I don't know what to play. I don't even feel that excited about it, really. I'll play to see the new zone and, to my disappointment, likely witness Druids being groomed for new class instead of Necromancer.

Who gives a fuck what the no-lifer leaderboard toppers can do with a build? You can knock at least 5-10 GR levels off of those estimates purely for not having 1000 Paragon, another 5 for not spending endless hours cultivating the very best stats on all of your gear, another 5 for not having a perfect Hellfire or immunity ammy... Not to mention the fact that builds meant for pushing the highest GRs often are not the most enjoyable to play or efficient in farming normal rifts, might require a specific group composition to support it, etc.

I can agree with this but only to a certain point when it comes to the bottom line of a build's ability. Take all of those no-life perks away and you've simply moved the problem to appear sooner rather than later. If you like TX farming, it's great but it's not the best and if you like GRs it's okay but not great.

Typical Blizzard balancing though. Buffing Firebirds to become competitive since it fell out of favour then gradually built it a coffin before being put to rest in more or less the same state as it was.

Linus Tech Tips has a video guide where he explains and puts together an eight core Xeon system for ~$150. Ran most games like a champ...

...but that could be due to the GTX 980 he mounted on it...

Really sucks to hear about our beloved Goblin King but at least he didn't have to see or hear about Ricky Gervais being retarded at the awards last night which likely gave me some kind of cancer.

I don't even watch awards but I was surfing and caught a glimpse of Katy Perry's barely-covered tits and it sort of stayed on in the background while I was sitting at my desk and I couldn't believe someone didn't go on stage and beat the shit out of him.

The problem I have with Grim Dawn is it feels like everything is for nothing. The community is small and it just feels too far under the shadow of Path of Exile and Diablo for me to really sink my claws in to. If I want a better baselone ARPG, I'll play PoE and if I want better combat, I'll play Diablo.

I recently gave GD the best attempt I have ever done and hit level 30 with a Stormbringer Druid build but by then I was practically out of all ambition to continue. I wasn't really a fan of Titan's Quest either so this is likely where that lack of interest stems from.
