If you like story driven RPG's with a lot of reading, buy the game.

If you like action heavy RPG's with tons of combat, and don't like reading, skip it.


Pretty much. We know why Cutter keeps slagging off this sort of RPG

It's a shame this kind of crap just interferes with adoption of new tech. VR will never get off the ground with this kind of nonsense going on.

Then I am remarkably broken. It's going to be ok because death happens. But you have a choice who you work for.

Yeah no one is buying that bullshit now. He didn't work for a dictator or lobby for corporations. He was fighting for the beliefs and rights you claim are important and he had the courage to do it on FOX. You plainly got caught off guard and made a distasteful comment without even knowing the context. Next time be an adult, admit your mistake and move on. Sheesh.

Am I alone in hating Samsung's Edge phones? It seems so with how popular they are, though I can't understand why anyone would want a warped image and a greater frequency of accidental touches.

Even if they brought back the normal non-edge versions, after having a Pixel XL, I don't think I could ever own another phone that isn't stock android. Touchwiz is junk and Samsung's unremovable and undisablable (is that a new word?) bloat is no longer acceptable.

Touchwiz is trash and Samsung can't make a decent phone to save their life. The only reason I bothered with some of their stuff was SD card support.

When a fox "no-news" talking head dies i just don't feel sad. I must be broken on the inside. sniff

Alan Colmes was involved in several charities and generally argued for left-leaning issues on FOX. It is remarkably distasteful to spit on his grave over a misconception but to double down on it after being corrected is just immature.

I need to give Xenoblade another try. Last time I tried it was years ago (before a recent machine upgrade), and I always had trouble pairing the damn Wii Remote to my machine. When I did get it to work, the game was excellent and ran well (aside from sound issues, IIRC).

Hopefully some upgrades on Dolphin's end, combined with my machine upgrade resolved those issues. I remember really getting drawn into the story.

Dolphin has come a long way, you no longer need a special compiled build to play Xenoblade or something. It used to be a giant pain in the ass but most games work fine outside of some edge cases.

Speaking of Nintendo I wonder how quickly the Switch will get owned for piracy.

Retailers don't get price protection from Nintendo so they strictly limit stock to avoid inventory writeoffs. The consequence is that between that and Nintendo's bullshit artificial scarcity tactics with various things you often pay absurd prices for their products even years later.

Sounds like you both missed the point of the charge and course. They didn't want the tech to launch with bad word of mouth from amateurs who didn't understand how to use it. Now that it's proven and past the point where layman can fuck its reputation easily, they feel safe to release it to everyone.

You're wasting time on the "VR SUX" crowd who just want to lampoon new tech as soon as it pops up so they can take a victory lap on a 50/50 prediction.

Yeah they really flubbed the Store in general. It's the most miserable experience I've had since trying iTunes on Windows a long time ago.

Says the clown who decried Apple and Google for years and now owns a bunch of their products

I'm an enthusiast, I disable the aspects of Windows that bother me and move on with my life. Same as I've always done with every version of Windows. In fact I've never been completely happy with any version of Windows but "uninstall Xbox app after a Windows Update once a year" is pretty low on my list of complaints.

Hope people have a plan B here because Microsoft doesn't seem interested in caving on some of these things. If it bothered me that much I would start looking to alternatives.

I like Steam, I think its pretty decent software. It's worst sin is the UI but fitting all of that functionality without some UI hodgepodge is difficult at best. I use nearly every aspect of Steam save for the video streaming.

Yeah that scares the shit out of me too, even the loss of a limb is something I could deal with but slowly losing your mind is terrifying.

You seem really displeased with Windows 10, why not go back to Windows 7 or just stop using Windows altogether? They're not going back on these directional changes after all.

Did anyone on here ended up getting this game?
PCgamer said it is a pretty simplistic RTS game but it isn't terrible. I don't think I will buy it at full price but might grab it on sale

Really want to like it but I think I will just wait for Dawn of War III. I've never been enthralled with the Halo setting/universe and so far the hands on impressions have been tame.

I have seen complaints against other people, including Slick. I don't mind long posts as long as there's a reason and not just waffle but that's a bit subjective. With a couple of people (like space captain) I think it's in your best interests to be concise as comprehensive answers just gives them more to misunderstand.

I don't think he misunderstands at all, he just chooses what to respond to. I agree though that being more concise is pretty key to not getting aggravated in dealing with him. I don't mind long posts either but when its just dissembling and waffle I tune it out. It gets tiresome every now and then so I (infrequently) comment on it which I think is reasonable.

Anyways while I wouldn't lose any sleep over him being banned, it seems rather pointless because he will just reregister and begin the cycle anew. Perhaps if the BBS is ever updated these things can get sorted out.

I just deleted the whole thing, I was in a bad mood all day and kept making changes to it and I decided that I just didn't want to argue anymore. So if he was trying to be nice about it, so be it.

Bygones be bygones and all that is fine with me.

Yeah I don't have time to read or respond to all of that.

You had time to read the entire thread yet not enough to read my three paragraphs? Inquisitive

It was a nice way of saying you could stand to clean up your posts a bit. I had some PMs from others in the past saying the same thing and I took it to heart in the past few years. I see others have given that feedback without any introspection being triggered so I won't bother trying to convince you further.

This is way off topic though so getting back to my original point, space captain can't really be banned so it's just a waste of time asking. He's caustic but arguably adds some value here and frankly we have worse posters. For better or for worse we're all stuck with each other. The ignore function works perfectly well, I am hesitant to use it myself but with some posters I'm definitely getting closer.
