This looks pretty badass, I'll definitely get it at some point. The Evil Within stoked the Resident Evil fires pretty hard, for me at least.

I'm kind of amazed you didn't like RE4, unless you're talking about the mouse issues on PC early on? RE4 was arguably one of the better games in the series.

50% discount on many games including bf4 if don't have it. Code is Origin50

I just picked it up for $5 not two weeks ago on Origin. Now all the DLC is free? That's a pretty sweet deal.

EDIT: WTF? I have to add each one individually?

Lol! First world problems. $5 for the entire game, and I have to click several times!?!?

BF4 is great, I think I'm just getting to the point where I've got more hours into BF4 than all the previous Battlefield games, BF1942 exlcuded.

Thanks for the Origin50 code, I picked up SW:Battlefront, mainly to see how gorgeous it looks on my new desktop.

I've been playing Dragon Age:Inquisition, and it's surprisingly good so far, and it looks amazing on max settings.

The only issue is all of these 'new' Origin games seem to be anywhere from 40-70gigs, I'm going to have to finally delete BF4 by the time BF1 rolls around. *sheds a tear, as he lovingly shoots down one last jet with a tank*

14%? 2018 will mark the 14th anniversary of Half-Life 2. HL3 in 2018 confirmed.

Excellent detective work; that's also my take away from this news story.

I'm getting wet where I pee just thinking about this series.
Do androids dream of electric sheep?

This series looks insanely good, but DON'T MIX UNIVERSES.

HBO seems to have a lock on creating good series... it's been awhile since I've even watched anything they made that wasn't in the good to great range.

Ah, Dead Space 2, the greatest of the Dead Spaces! Definitely pick this up if somehow you don't have it yet.

Dead Space 3, how were you so terrible?

No do not buy it, it flat out does not work on PC.

No amount of work arounds and fucking around fixes it.

Are you thinking of Dead Space 1? That had some port issues early on, Dead Space 2, Disc version and Origin versions work great. Bought the disc version on sale, there was a free transfer to the Origin version at some point? Played through a couple of times on both.

To be fair I've never tried the Steam version of Dead Space 2, but I can't see it being completely unplayable, sorry to hear it gave you issues.

Looks pretty good, I think you guys a nitpicking a bit much. The first one was low budget and ended up being entertaining, this looks like a better version of the first game, ie. ideal sequel.

I doubt I'll preorder, but I'll get it on sale at some point.

Muscular Beaver's 'equally loud sounds' comment is fair, the first game sort of had the same issue, if I recall. Didn't make it unplayable though.

Dead Space 3, how were you so terrible?

I know it was a pretty radical departure from the original gameplay-wise, but I still REALLY enjoyed Dead Space 3 because of it's co-op play. I thought it was a great example of how to do campaign co-op really well, because of the two separate characters that each had their own backstory and set of events to explore through the game. Not to mention some of the really cool scripted moments like the shuttle ride, which get even better in co-op.

I can't imagine playing it solo, but it's a terrific co-op title.

Terrible is probably the wrong word... I loved DS2 so much, I was hoping for Dead Space 3 to utterly blow me out of the water. What I got instead was basically a different game entirely. That game wasn't bad, but it didn't feel Dead Space-ish, ie. coop in a solo horror shooter, with resource farming? The game was certainly playable solo, and I've definitely played worse games, I just wish they had stayed away from the coop and resource farming stuff for the Dead Space series. The weapon system also felt like a major step backwards from DS2, in that you only have 2 guns with alternate fire modes available all of a sudden, when even 4 in DS1 and 2 was a bit too consolish for my liking.

As far as I can see, Dead Space 3 effectively killed the series too(in EA's mind, not necessarily Visceral's), which is why it still bugs me. But yes, the game in and of itself, if it was called something else, I'd probably look back on a lot more fondly. You aren't the only one who told me they actually liked it a lot playing it coop, but I can only play certain games coop and not OCD out on my partner(s), and this wasn't one of those games.

If Dead Space 4 ever gets out of limbo, I hope they go back to a pure solo experience, but it looks like EA has written the game off entirely.

Yeah... seems like a mistake, Bezos. But what do I know, people buy Apple products at overpriced Apple stores all day long. Maybe this is a financial master stroke.

Man, I was tearing up just watching that trailer. I'd be crying profusely if I saw it in the theatre.

Netflix only.

What? Literally a few days ago Harvard medical school posted video of a great example of exactly how(and how quickly) bacteria evolves to resist antibiotics.

"The patient was typically healthy with no prior surgeries or hospi­talizations. The patient's usual diet included fruit, dairy products and meat (pork, chicken and beef)."

The diet is important because the mcr-1 gene has been found in meat from food animals, including pigs.

From decades of force feeding livestock antibiotics? Sheesh, this is well known.

In other news, got my beastly desktop fully put together today. I think this is the first time in about 8? or so home built computers that nothing had an issue out of the box...I am somewhat fearful of something going awry, but so far it all looks good for 144 fps or so in Battlefield 1.

*EDIT* Also that sand snake is ridiculously cute.. what is happening, Earth?!

Ratings for this game on Steam, after the latest patch are pretty favorable. I'm tempted to pick it up.

Immediate, blind dive into the $24 deep end! Maybe.

Wow, scumbag moves from a large bank, not shocking in and of itself, but shocking at the (assuming) low level of the employees involved in such scams. Even the little guys at the bank are out to exploit you.

Glad I switched to credit unions about 15 years ago.

Hrm, looking pretty interesting, although I think they could have gone in a different, MUCH BETTER, direction with a different announcer.

More 'in a world' than 'popsicles are made by putting popsicle sticks into liquid, which is then frozen.'

Only major issue I see so far is a max party of 4. Heresy!

General architectural style: somewhere between the Borg, Superman's Fortress of Solitude, and Oblivion(the movie)'s starship.

I lost interest in Mass Effect not too far into ME3... I'll probably get this on sale at some point, just like ME2 and 3, just to add to the game queue.
