Twitter, the home of idiots and orange jizz filled trolls.

I assume the orange comes from the hooker urine?

Twitter is mostly rotting cesspool - it's fitting Trump would claim it his kingdom. The unfortunate part is now it's boiled over to soil the flag of patriots.

I watched a youtube series on this game- and calling it a game is a stretch. The guy broke it up into 6, 30 minute parts. We all chatted about it and had a cool little community around the series.

That said, I think I got more out of the game enjoying it that way than actually playing it. I would buy it for $5, but no more... I really don't want to support 3 hour experiences with virtually no gameplay. As good as the story is, Firewatch is shallow and empty and most definitely not worth the price. The only way I think I could buy it is if it had a good VR experience and I actually owned a VR headset.

Sorry, but it's definitely a game. The gameplay consists of finding your way to objectives using the map, deciding what dialogue options your character speaks, and enjoying the story, scenery, sounds, dialogue and atmosphere. Maybe not the most exciting game, but then neither was Myst. It sounds like you enjoyed it in your own way as well and it didn't cost you anything, so I don't know what's to complain about. What is the price exactly? I think I paid less for my lunch today.
(I looked it up and it's currently at $12).

Is Deus Ex cheaper than it was yesterday? I waited, hoping it would be.

No, I bought it yesterday and $20 is probably the cheapest you're going to find it for a while. I only played for like 30 minutes last night but it seems like a quality game to me so far.

Missed this if it was posted in the last few days...but Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is 67% off on Steam as their midweek madness sale.

That brings it under $20...but I'm still hesitant to pull the trigger if the Steam sale is supposedly starting tomorrow

Time I pick this up.

Bought. Definitely worth $20 even for 1/2 - 3/4 of a game (story-wise) based on the negative reviews I've read. Seems unlikely that they'll make another based if the sales of this one are as bad as I assume they are, but who knows.

How is this any different than Trump promising a whole lot of shit, basically everything that everybody wanted to hear, then getting elected and then....well I guess we'll see what happens next, wont we?

Who says it's any different? Besides the fact that one has the power to lead the world to chaos... and the other is just running a country.

Not only is it not Disney, it's not Star Wars. Not everything needs to be R rated. It doesn't somehow make the movie better. Granted, I do like the idea of having a SWKOTR movie, but I don't know if the public at large would be interested enough.

BTW, I believe that tomb raider pack "20 Year Celebration" includes all the DLC, season pass, etc.
At least it did when I bought it a month ago. It's not advertised like that, so I was pleasantly surprised and started playing the game. I've been enjoying it.

The new Tomb Raider is great. I got it for free and was kind of bored initially, but the game opens up a lot and has some awesome environments. I read that one of the dev goals was to fill the player with awe with every new environment and I believe they mostly succeeded. All the tombs are optional but unique enough to make you seek them out for the visuals alone. On top of that it's looks great, runs great in DX12 and has a lot of gameplay. I thought I was almost finished with the game and the plot kept expanding. Definitely worth $30.

Don't think I ever finished 3, but playing Rogue now and enjoying it. Rogue plays like 4 in the setting of which is interesting IMO. I'm going to have to pick up Unity next!

Any Top 10 without any pre-order nonsense is a happy list in my book. I'm guessing Dishonored 2 will have staying power like DOOM and Fallout 4 as people see that it's being supported and the price drops. I will definitely pick it up in the next few months.

Just finished Rise of the Tomb Raider. I got it for free and thought it was going to be just okay, but it surprised me at every turn. There are so many high quality games these days!

Can't wait until the public beta test is over, the game is patched and goes on sale and then I can finally buy it.

You're taking a risk pre-ordering a game or buying day-one. That's especially true with a game from Bethesda now that reviewers don't get early access.

Full disclaimer, I am a backer but I feel in 40 years I will tell my

grandson that I backed this game more for a laugh about the fact that I backed it than for actually playing it.

Hey at least you took a risk and either way it goes, you're part of something big. Just like this year's election, nobody actually knows for sure how things will end even if things are looking one way. The inevitable post-mortem with all the internal dealings will have some entertainment value if nothing else.

Although Videosift is good at finding videos, it's pretty crappy at displaying videos. That's probably the main reason people complain. Especially on mobile.

"Let's investigate this a month+ after the game came out, and nobody pays any attention to the ad anymore! That'll really make it look like we care, and we're Serious Folks who are Not To Be Messed With!"


How else do you do it? The game only came out a few weeks ago. Before that it was impossible to do the compare. So, account for a couple weeks for dissatisfaction to build and make a complaint, a couple of weeks to investigate the validity, and a couple of weeks to formulate and execute a plan of action, and we're at the current date. How could it have been any faster?

It probably couldn't have been faster, but look at what these guys can actually "do."

The ASA has the power to have advertisements it believes are in breach of its code of conduct withdrawn, and prevent them from appearing again

Ooooh, they can make you take the ad down!!! That'll REALLY hurt two months after the game's been released. Where's the 5 million GBP fine?

Their "power" is like the Invisible Boy who can only turn invisible if nobody's watching.

Better than nothing. Even if their power is limited it's still bad publicity for the company and Sony, sets a precedent for further action such as lawsuits and sends an official message.

News Comments > Titanfall 2 4K Trailer

3. Re: Titanfall 2 4K Trailer Sep 28, 2016, 16:40 Leper
I'm still a bit confused why EA gave them the greenlight to make Titanfall 2, I know the first one was a financial success but that was because on xbox one the selection of games was rather thin. This looks pretty but where is the physics and destruction? Large stompy robot can't even move a shipping crate or down a tree.

I imagine it's cheaper to make a sequel using an existing engine, tweaking assets and adding some features, then to create a new IP. They may have also started working on 2 before 1 was complete which makes it more of a decision to cancel than to greenlight. Like most every company, they want to turn this into a CoD franchise where each iteration has great profit margins.

While I agree this looks like they're pulling out all of the stops, I think I might be a bit disappointed at the setting. The West was super popular back in the early 70s when the original debuted, but much less so these days. I wish they'd chosen a setting that is more popular. Perhaps Medieval World, given the popularity of GoT. Or some kind of Futureworld.

I suppose it could be argued "The West hasn't been done in a while!" And doing The West is probably cheaper than other options, like the Future. Still I can't help feeling like this was a missed opportunity. Roaring20s World would have been awesome.

I'm not that familiar with the material, but is it possible that they could switch worlds? Maybe that would be too gimmicky.

They say DX12 may improve better performance on some systems, but offers no visual or gameplay differences.

That's funny, because you sure implied that it would look better back when you were pimping it heavily.

Well if DX12 were to increase performance, you could up the graphic settings and arguably get better visuals while maintaining the same framerate. Anyways they probably they hadn't implemented it at the time and were just were parroting whatever they were hearing from Microsoft as far as gains.

Playing this with the Xbox One controller is really cool. Controller force feedback has come a long way since the N64 Rumble Pak! I'm sure using a wheel would be better, though.

I would much rather them devote the resources to the next red dead or gta and have it on pc from the start.

Who's to say they aren't working on these things also? Assuming this is true, the resources on the port are not resources they moved from their big projects - this would be a separate team that likely specializes in ports with their own budget, etc. Rockstar has multiple teams and is capable of working on multiple things simultaneously. This would be just another way to make money after they saw that there was demand (I constantly see people on here whining about how RDR never came to PC).

Should it have been included in the original game? Old-school gamer logic says yes. Old-school gamer logic doesn't make MONEY, however, and I doubt you go to work and hand out YOUR time for less money than what you could be getting.
Well I'm glad no-one told this to the devs at CD Projekt Red, who make plenty of money treating customers with respect and releasing expansions with as much content as most full games.

Unfortunately I don't think every studio can function the way CD Projekt Red does. Deus Ex isn't exactly taking the sales charts by storm and I'm guessing they'll be lucky if they break even (even by screwing over their customers with all this DLC as implied).

I seriously doubt that we'd have seen a large expansion to this game if they had gone that route since they'd have to wait to see how the base game was selling before greenlighting it. So a few small pieces of DLC might be the last we see of DX. Better than nothing?
