So, if someone doesn't follow the group-think, it becomes hate-speech. Brilliant idea, comrades.

I mean, this is directly calling Nazism hate speech. You're arguing slippery slope for calling Nazi propaganda hate speech?


And you think it's not a slippery slope to give IT companies the definition power over what is racism and what isn't?

I mean, if a court has to decide what is or isn't and THEN it gets censored, fair enough. But as I understand this goes a lot further than that, and has absolutely ZERO legal checks.

You post here so regularly that I just randomly assumed you would do so with a tablet at least SOME of the time But if not then that's fine too. But by phone? Amazon doesn't have my phone number.... what for? To call me? Like, a real person? From India? No thanks

And yeah, they really gotta do something against 3rd party counterfeit resellers. It's extremely hard to tell where something is coming from on Amazon. But at least in Germany they gotta take the thing back no questions asked if it's counterfeit.

Amazon most certainly has your phone number. And if you some inexplicable reason they didn't they could still easily contact you through your CC provider or bank.

I think the far bigger problem is that I'd never believe anyone calling me if they said they are from "Amazon" and got my phone number from my "bank" ;p

We're living in the next golden age of RPGs, gentlemen(I'd say and ladies, but this is bluesnews). A resurgence that's probably better than the BG2 era, to be honest.

It's just too bad the real world is complete shit right now.

Could the two be connected?

I think it would only be a valid resurgence if big developers and publishers served that genre.... as it is, we got a few gems coming but that is always the case, true RPG's, far reaching as BG2 or Torment or even the first Dragon Age or the Mass Effect trilogy, are not gonna come from big AAA developers ever again I fear.


CD Project might be the only exception.

And yes, I realize we get (it seems) every console RPG with decent sales ported to steam nowadays so that's good too

I don't really feel motivated to play a sad game

Why does nobody make a good comedic game with a story anymore anyway? Everything is so dark and sombre...

If only I could see what you wrote, I am typing this by sense of smell.

That is impressive ;p

But yeah, I clicked on it.. first line
partially blinded

And later on
August 19, 2017 e-mail notification that glasses were recalled

(Eclipse was 21st..)

So basically that's some blokes who didn't read their emails for 2 days..... that got partially blinded (although maybe not permanently?) from using a recalled product. That's some shitty luck but I can't really blame Amazon here, they did recall the glasses and they can't do much more than notify you per email...

And who the hell doesn't read (or smell) their emails for 2 entire days or 48 hours...

The sad thing, a lot of the money donated for Harvey will end up in the coffers of these charities and not reach the intended people.

When San Diego lost 600 homes to fire some years ago, two thirds of the funds donated to the Red Cross went to Washington and not to the intended victims. Then of course you have all these charities scams that pop up.

Your best bet is donating things like clothing and food, they can't stash that in a bank account somewhere.

If you send money, there is a good chance it will not help the people of Houston.

If you wanted to help the people of Houston you'd have to convince them that building below a certain height is maybe not such a great idea... and give them the money for this specifically, like with that actual use bound to it.

Every home rebuilt, but 2m higher than the current flood max height would prevent any future disaster. But what are the chances...

Jivaro wrote on Aug 30, 2017, 11:47:
MS can't seriously be confused as to why Nintendo or Sony wouldn't be all that likely to do it right? I mean, Nintendo or Sony might crossplay with PC but that is something else entirely.

I guess weirder things have happened in the last year or so...I am not going to hold my breath though.

Yeah I find this baffling, you'd think the source of such a initiative would come from actual multi-platform publishers or digital stores, but from MS it screams dishonesty. And it's not like Sony makes all PS4 games, nor does MS make all xbox games, this needs to be an initiative and decision coming from the actual developers.

And Steam has absolutely no reason to allow crossplay either when you think about it Why would Steam reward buyers on competing platforms? Not to mention the issues this would lead to (same balance for games on different platforms, control issues, patches would need to be perfectly synced.. pc specific issues would likely never get patched.. etc.

Needs more than just the Skaven. They're neat but they're kind of.... meh.

What a blasphemous statement Nothing can compete against furry death-balls of backstabbery and doooooooom.

That said, I really wish for a game kinda like this, just with a bit more of a story/RPG/progression focus. If this is just more of the same from Vermintide 1 I am not gonna care. Quite enjoyed this game in PUB (surprisingly enough) but the grind.. and the loot system, was just... not really conductive to fun. The levels were always the same, and without a director like in L4D I always found them to always be kinda boring when it comes down to it.

Well I trust a 3 post review far more than when you say you had fun in anything coop Your definition of fun is totally muddled, you don't have fun with the specific game, you have fun playing with your friends. Sadly, your friends are not included in a purchase of Destiny 2....

I'm in that boat, too, because I have to convince my friends to get on board and they are far more casual than I am when it comes to gaming. I find it amusing because I got them all into The Division but they petered out pretty quickly at the end-game for a variety of reasons. I recall plenty of people on forums making it sound like it didn't take that long to gear up properly and learn the events, giving a ballpark of like "two hours a night," and I'm like...really? That's casual? Not in my world. I'm lucky to get them together once a weekend for a few hours.

So, yes, I have a clan that plays and I can just "pub" or do whatever but I find as I get older I'd rather focus my multi-player time with my friends and this game already feels like work. From a beta. A short ass beta. It literally made me tired doing a few runs. My friends mostly suck and we don't have the hours to waste getting them up to snuff so to speak, so I guess this type of game is out.

So no offense to people who love this stuff as I already said, more power to you! But for those in my boat, my "review" in several posts below is effectively for you. Wait for a sale or if not, get it on console. By the time it hits PC all the secrets will be known and technical mastery aside, it's just not worth full price or a separate purchase on this platform.

As I got older I found myself in exactly the same spot, I have (well, no, I don't HAVE to, but I *want*) to focus my MP game time on things everyone in my circle enjoys, and grindy coop isn't that, mainly because of the upfront time-investment needed if not everyone is the same "level" (one of the reason Division/Warframe are not exactly high on the list of games I like). It is also extremely rare that any 1 specific game is the 1 game everyone enjoys. Most of my friends are casual gamers and they'd not touch coop for more than a try. It's why the Division was one of my worst purchases ever ~.~ The game hyped a few out of my friends and nobody played it longer than 8 hours total in Coop because ("It feels like work")

It gets much worse when your gamer friends all come from a competitive MP scene, gained families and now enjoy family friendly economic games and card games, or racing games. But can't really play "shooty-stabby" games on a weekday with children around. I mean, I want them to spent time with their children and if that means they spend less time with me then that is totally fine, I would never except it otherwise. Which is why I am a bit baffled by Darks response ;/

Anyway... I read your "review" but opie posted his as well and so he didn't deserve to be attacked for it.... as I said, friends who all play this game hardcore and for a long time are NOT included in the purchase. And so it has to be looked at from a solo perspective too.

My impression of the beta: (PC)
I was able to get in the 24 early period, but it took 2 hours of contentiously restarting game to get it to connect. error saxophone
Once in, I was pleasantly surprised about Nathan Fillion voice over. Sadly, this was the highlight.
The intro mission was kinda boring and VERY linear. The cut scenes were okay, but ugly.
The match making was painfully slow, and 1 game never loaded. I had to Alt F4 that.
PVE was fun once. It is like replaying the same dungeon run over.. and over.. and over.
PVP was chaos and all about hand-cannon/grenade launcher (1 "hit" kills). Again, boring fast.
The over all graphics (1080P max settings) ran great, but it looked like it was a 8 year old game. Reminds me of Borderlands. The fire was annoying bad, and I found my character got stuck on pebbles that I would have to jump over. I actually got stuck in a tree once.

final words: 4/10 already uninstalled and not going to play again. Might be good for console newbs who have to use a controller.

So, this guy has 3 whole post and we are supposed to buy into his bullshit review? Yea, right!!

I actually like the beta, payed the Coop mission with some friends and we had a blast. was a lot of fun. Maxed out everything ran like a champ on the Ti 1080 on 28" 4K HD monitor full resolution.

held 60 FPS without any drops at all.

Well I trust a 3 post review far more than when you say you had fun in anything coop Your definition of fun is totally muddled, you don't have fun with the specific game, you have fun playing with your friends. Sadly, your friends are not included in a purchase of Destiny 2....

I don't know, seems kind of weird they picked undead to be the last race. Certainly won't be in any party I play.

One thing I can agree on, the original ending was horrid. At least they fixed that in later releases.

What the shit, they changed the ending for that Director's Cut or whatever it was called? Ugh, need to go back and play that at some point.

Pretty fundamentally at that, though the boss fight is still in.
