News Comments > Enter the Gungeon Sells 1M

I have EtG... the only actual game DLC I think is still the MTX Gun for $0.99, the rest of the DLC is soundtracks, comics, etc.

The game itself is good, but I have not put a ton of time into it. I find Nuclear Throne to be better overall, TormentorXPunisher to be more exciting, and Nex Machina to be more fun. All of a sudden there were a lot of Smash TV/Robotron clones/ripoffs, with some single life flavor thrown in.

I'd wait for a sale, Alamar.

What's really crazy, looking at that Guardian page, is how many of the gunshot fatalities are to old women, 50+ years old. Cops are seriously that cowardly?

No, they aren't all black criminals, random Trump supporter who will undoubtedly comment on this.
A total of 62 females out of 1093. There is no reason for LEO's to be any more careful around women, they have just as much access to firearms as men. imho the number seems low.
And of the 18 women in the 45+ age group, 7 of those died by being struck by vehicle. tldr Focusing on this one group is not the battle you are looking for.

As for race, there are a disproportionate number of "other than white" deaths that even a tRUMP supporter could see, one would hope.

I wouldn't call it a battle, and to be honest I didn't even take the time to analyze the data like you clearly did, to get some actual numbers. I did a quick scroll through the pictures shown, definitely not a scientific method. Yes, the racial disparity is shown in several formats by that page, on the other hand.

Regardless of race, 1000+ deaths a year(actually reported deaths, the real numbers are !?) directly attributed to police, is insane.

Woman who called 911 to report disturbance shot dead by cops

Remember what I said the other day why people don't want to call the cops. America, you seriously need a better screening process and training. Hiring these cowardly, trigger happy sociopaths has to stop. I mean, US cops are killing more people in a single year than other police forces around the world do in a century.

It's a serious, entrenched problem in this country. A lot of citizens in the USA don't even realize how bad it is but the numbers (to me) are staggering. over 2 people a day so far in the past several years.

No, they aren't all black criminals, random Trump supporter who will undoubtedly comment on this. By any measure, the police in the United States are simply trained incorrectly. Lethal force shouldn't be the first option anytime you encounter ANY situation.

What's really crazy, looking at that Guardian page, is how many of the gunshot fatalities are to old women, 50+ years old. Cops are seriously that cowardly?

It'll be a difficult uphill battle to not only train police to NOT treat all citizens like an enemy army, but to remove that culture of "Us vs Them / Go Home Alive and Nothing Else Matters" that police have now.

What the hell, Dead Cells hasn't been on any Steam Top 10 list at all, as far as I can tell. There is no justice here!

I have to believe Valve is just laughing their collective asses off about the whole CS:GO situation.

People just keep buying that shit, get banned, buy a new copy/make a new account, repeat. It's mind boggling.

This looks gorgeous! Jotun was gorgeous also, but I wasn't overly impressed with their isomeric gameplay. I think a side-scroller will work a lot better with their movement schemes, and be a better game overall.

This title is misleading. The FBI was already investigating him for probably just being Chinese at a research university, and stumbled upon this inside trading. The browsing history is just icing on the cake, the spouse phone calls and following purchases in the mother's name are all the SEC needed.

I'm at least a couple years away from my next gaming desktop, but I'm glad AMD is at least starting to get their shit together. By the time I'm ready to build something new, AMD will hopefully have a competitive line of CPUs and Radeon GPUs to go.

What the hell, that article needs more info. I guess he's required to close the door? That seems inherently unsafe. At least tell a bank employee to check on him after 10 minutes or something? Ugh. Texas too, it could be 120 degrees outside.

Re: Mars, a sustained Mars colony with humans living there is not feasible right now, financially or from an engineering standpoint. Any 'colonists' would be dead of radiation exposure unless they build the entire thing deep underground, and that kind of construction simply cannot be done right now on another planet, without bankrupting us.

You donít need to have any prior knowledge of The Evil Within in order to jump into The Evil Within 2 and understand the conflict and setting

Nobody who played Evil Within understood the conflict or setting. It was a bunch a fucked-up Inception style shit involving brain jacking machines and time travel and mind melding bull shit.

Short version of the Evil Within story: 99% of it takes place in their minds while they are unconscious and plugged in to said brain jacking machines.

So basically you are running around scrounging for ammo and supplies in some weird subconscious corners of your character's mind, that somehow wants to punish himself(yourself?) with constant terror and tension.

All that aside, I loved The Evil Within, and I'll get tEW2 unless they really fuck up somehow.

I don't know why they didn't promote it more, but the Netflix Castlevania series was written by Warren Ellis, of massive comic fame (Transmetropolitan, The Authority, etc.)

I read that, then watched the series immediately. The first episode is STRONG, the other three were weaker, but I'll definitely watch their next arc of the series.

Comic Book + Castlevania fans should be more interested now, for that small portion of the population.

That looks pretty lame but the asians do make some crazy ass action flicks I'll give them that. If you've never seen The Raid Redemption it's a must watch. Still one of the best action flicks I've ever seen. It's just so cray cray in a good way.

Yup, I've seen The Raid as well as Raid 2, which is arguably even more insane. I liked them enough to actually buy them on Blu-Ray, which I almost never do anymore, get hard copies that is.

There will always be a soft spot in my heart for any sort of martial arts/gun battle/crazy action film, even though there is definitely a lot of chaff to sift through to get to the good stuff.

That looks pretty awesome, although clearly they ripped off Hardcore Henry for some of the first person perspective scenes. For the record, I thought Hardcore Henry was cool, but I also got motion sickness after awhile in the theatre trying to watch it.

I'll go see the Villainess though, I'm pretty sure I'm required to by international treaty.

Hrm, it's looking really good; I've had this on my Steam Wishlist for awhile, but I'll most likely buy it on Gog.

I don't know about the rest of you guys, but I'm loving this resurgence of Smash-TV/Robotron games lately: TormentorXPunisher, Nex Machina and now Redeemer... my old school arcade itch is satiated.

That's a great comic, that seems like it is not going to translate well to a game.

This video seems mediocre at best.

News Comments > Diablo III Season 11 This Month
3. Re: Diablo III Season 11 This Month Jul 6, 2017, 10:47 MoreLuckThanSkill
 
There's nothing wrong with Diablo 3 in the short term, it's after you put in a hundred hours or so you see how truly shallow it is. Arguably at that point you've gotten your money's worth, I know, but old school Diablo fans were expecting more depth and longevity, or at least modding would have been nice to fix Blizzard's design decisions.

It's a shame, the engine is beautiful, and the art/sound people put in a ton of great work. The game could still be salvaged with an overall number crunch; get rid of the billions of damage, and make non-set builds viable. Then there truly would be some variety.

As it is now, D3 is basically ARPG-lite.

This game probably won't be my cup of tea, but it got me thinking; how long is it going to be before 'retro' or 'minimalist' developers try to bring back Pong-level graphics?

I mean there are already a few abstract games that get close to 80's arcade games, but nobody has the balls apparently to go full Pong.

I have a question about this. If "Trump's people" get the publicly available data, which I assume they will at some point. Since it is publicly available, I'd assume the Ds could get it too. My question is, what is the concern? What nefarious thing is it people are afraid will happen? I guess they could manipulate the data to support voter id laws? Is that the worry? I'm not saying there shouldn't be concerns, I'm just not sure what they are.

Voter intimidation and suppression is the most likely result. Public condemnation of people who didn't vote Trump, etc.

Gerrymandering is already pretty terrible in most states, although I am sure it could always get worse.

Also, Blue: The link actually says 44 not 41 states, although it might have been updated after you posted it.

What's the over/under until hackers have a workaround? 34 hours?

Reading the article, this sounds like less of a Ransomware defense and more like an attempt to force software developers to pay to get their programs whitelisted/put on the MS Store.

Everybody on Bluesnews should be dropping Windows ASAP, really. Pick your flavor of Linux for work, keep a Windows machine for gaming and nothing else, ready to be wiped at all times.

And offline backups. Sheesh.
