So I started this game because everyone gushes about it. I don't like it at all. It's boring as hell, every character is unlikable and the mechanics are glitchy and painful. I've been playing with my GF, because she's not a gamer and I thought that she could like it, but she doesn't either.

Max is sooo whiny and boring and makes the worst decisions possible. It's really frustrating playing her and being forced into obviously dumb situations. The writing's pretty bad sometimes too. Characters say things that literally don't make any sense and everyone carries on like nothing happened. The time thing is neat, but the application is terrible. It glitches all the time. Once, I rewinded and it showed me a totally different scene for no reason. Also you're forced to watch really long scripted sequences several times...

Anyway, we've done the first two episodes and basically decided to give up and play other, better games in this genre.


I actually feel that way about a lot of games. I'm not sure but I think it was particularly bad in Dragon Age Origins where during a dialogue none of the options that I was given made any friggin' sense and it would have been much easier to say something completely different, which also would have resolved the situation much better.

Any game with different dialogue options will have that.

With that said, Life is strange hasn't been so bad in that respect so far and I enjoyed the game greatly. Really looking forward to the finale.

Well, adblock is not the only way to block ads.

Request policy helps, too. And Privacy Badger. And ghostery.

If you are willing to go through the hassle of allowing crossdomain links every time you visit a new site. Which also doesn't work sometimes and keeps you from accessing content. It's still kinda nice, though.

I didn't mind there being only one ship.

What killed X:R is the lack of any complex interaction with the universe. In the previous X games you could have massive fleets, put them into wings, station them exactly where you wanted them, set up production chains etc.
It was much better. It was also much bigger since the different sectors were far apart and constituted different parts of the galaxy. From my understanding everything is much closer in X:R, hence the "highways".

Phantom Pain as soon as it is available for sub $10 on Steam.

Good luck avoiding spoilers while waiting for the price drop in roughly 2 years.

Eh, some of us don't give a damn about spoilers.

For me it's the journey that counts. As long as I have fun reading/playing/watching something I don't care whether I know the ending or the twist or what not.

GoG puts it on sale quite often. Never used CDkeys.


The game is massive, and wonderfully well done, and people are complaining that the mod tools aren't awesome enough. It's amazing how entitled people are. While I'd like to see what modders come up with, it's usually just reskins. At this point on games, making a texture replacement pack is kind of pointless, and assembling even a 5-minute adventure that's at the same quality level would take modders a terrifying amount of time.

And if it's NOT the same quality level as the base game, it's not worth wasting your time on, is it?

Uhm. isn't that kind of a self-fulfilling prophecy? If there aren't proper modtools available reskins is all you are going to get.

News Comments > Spaceship Ahoy - Elite: Dangerous

Yeah but I don't want to explore for profit, I want to explore for the sake of exploring, the sake of fun. And that's why it's so annoying that it's actually not profitable. Just like mining.

It's like I want to do these things and the game is telling me "Well, you COULD explore or you COULD mine but it's gonna be a LONG time until you can get that shiny new ship."
And that is what's so frustrating.

I don't even have such high goals. I just want an outfitted ASP so I can travel the galaxy but before I get the 20 million credits required for that a long time will have passed, especially since I don't get to play that often (I'm on vacation right now, which is the only reason I made any progress at all).

Because I want to play a game where I can fly around in a spaceship and have fun. And blowing up other space ships is fun, however, I want to try things like mining and exploring and trading.

The problem is that I have to constantly worry about how I can increase my standing with the factions and how I can maximise my profits because everything is so god damn expensive that I cannot just go out and mine or trade because I am just stuck with one ship and cannot but any more since the game is such a grind.

Finally I reached the friendly reputation status with the alliance. What a drag. Now to think that getting allied will be at least as much... >_>

Also I used almost all of my 3 million to further upgrade my Cobra. I'll never get my ASP at that pace.

I think it was time that someone posted in here again.

I actually played some E:D on Friday but I think the grind is too much for me. I actually only want to be be friendly with the alliance and get an ASP but even that will cost me so much time I don't even want to play.

Also, Doom was fucking fast. It was faster than any iD game ever released before or since.

Eh, not so sure about that. Quake with strafe jumping is pretty damn fast.

Yeah well there was no jumping in Doom, so there is that. However Doom is definitely not slower than Quake, up until fairly recently Ive been playing Doom on Zdaemon (which is as close to the original Doom2.exe gameplay as it gets) and trust me on this it's insanely fast paced.

I don't know man. In my opinion Quake 2 is still the fastest game to date. That or Quake 3 with the CPMA mod. By fast I mean fast paced.

I mean, take a look at this:

(granted this is Quake 3, I think unmodded?)

This is sick.

I absolutely despise unwanted marketing research on me without my consent. They all ignore "Do not Track", too.

How is that legal?

Adblock Plus + No Script + Ranom Agent Spoofer (Which not only changes user agent per page, but spoofs a random ip address in the headers), and Ghostery.

Not fullproof, but markerters can fuck off and die as far as I'm concerned, so I will make it as difficult as possible for them to "spy" on me. I also don't use any google services nor social networking sites. So basically, I should be way below the radar compared to the average internet users, as far as datamined marketing is concerned.

The only folks that have info on my habbits are Amazon and Netflix... which I don't mind, since I use Amazon a lot, and targeted ads would apply when I'm on their site.

Hmm, didn't know about Random Agent Spoofer. Will check that out.

Personally I use ABP, Cookie monster, RequestPolicy, NoScript, Ghostery, BetterPrivacy and Privacy Badger Firefox, although some of these have the same or a similar function.

As someone who has never owned one single console in his life and only ever played on the PC... why would you already sell your PS4? Didn't it come out like one year ago or something? I didn't have the feeling that there is a drought of games for the PS4.
Also, didn't it cost around 400 USD at launch? Does the price fall so dramatically that it is only worth half after one year?

Now, as far as 'canon' discussions. It is the choice of a SW product creator to choose the old fiction or new. The old simply has to be labeled as 'Legends.' Also, KOTOR is basically part of the whole "Ancient Star Wars" part of the fiction, so it fits sort of a Grey Area due to taking place thousands of years prior to the movie timeline era. Some of my favorites are the stories dealing with Exar Kun, and how they eventually tied that it in way into the future during the movie timeline era.

A small number of very specific to KoTOR stuffs showed up in the Clone Wars series which is canon, further pushing it into that grey area.

Really? I didn't know that. Like what? But then again, I didn't pay much attention to the clone wars, so...


Played Kotor2... last year? With the missing content. Some parts were extremely difficult though and I wasn't able to beat them without cheating (that factory). The restored content is nice but quite often I wasn't able to read the dialogue because there was no audio and it just skipped. And it's not really balanced.

Pretty happy with my Sennheiser Momentum.

It always makes me chuckle when I see people wearing Beats headphones though.
