Yeah, he is dead. Cops confronted him on a hwy and he off'd himself apparently. I am glad he didn't start shooting at the cops and possibly take anyone else with him.

edit: Okay, apparently now they are not sure he is actually dead...just that he shot himself.

Fallout is back whch is nice, though its a little weird, its back as a new item. I already had it and its now labelled Fallout Classic. if I go to the new Fallout, its page doesnt tell me I own it and would let me buy it again.

I am going to guess that this is the result of legal crap. You bought it when it was being published by a different company....thus "technically" it's a different product now. It's confusing and a bunch of shit, but I suspect that is why it is that way.

If someone here never played Daggerfall, they really should. It's a bit complicated and really throws you in the deep end, but this game is something else. It contains stuff no other game does, in a good way. In a bad way sometimes too, but it's really worth seeing it implemented.

Yeah, I agree. Buggy as shit sometimes but totally worth a playthrough.

So I wake up this morning and click on my news based homepage and see a headline indicating that a reporter and cameraman were shot and killed on live TV, in Virginia I believe, while doing an interview.

While I am reading the text I start to hear a woman talking. "Oh, there is an ad or something on the page.." I think to myself and scroll around to find it and add it to my blocker. Takes me less than a second to find the video and than I realize too slowly what it really is. Before my non-caffeinated brain can tell my mouse hand to close the window gunshots are going off, the cameraman hits the floor and the women are screaming. Due to my lack of caffeine and the poorly placed video I just woke up to two people getting killed right in front of me. Holy hell..those poor people and their families.

Fuck you Internet. Going to be a great day, I am sure.

I think I have run into the same problem on Playstation that I have on PC...

It isn't so much that the sales suck as it is that I simply have everything I really want to own and I am really backlogged so buying other games dirt cheap out of curiosity doesn't make any sense. I won't ever get around to playing them.

Would have to see his data to extrapolate further, but I'm sure it's an exponential curve rather than linear, so tripling what qualifies you for the top 1% likely puts you in the top 0.1%. So then when someone like me has double the number you do, we're talking probably 0.01%.

I suck at math...where does 589 put me? .needtogetalife% ?

News Comments > Destiny Still Destined for PCs?
24. Re: Destiny Still Destined for PCs? Aug 22, 2015, 02:09 Jivaro
 
If this came out on PC I would buy it. I really enjoyed my time with it in the beta on PS4 but I just don't like playing shooters with a gamepad. I ended up cancelling my pre-order because as much as I liked what they had done the controls kept me from enjoying myself.

I have never understood the hate, I thought they did a pretty good job with the game and while I haven't played it since release the changes that I have read about sound like things I would be on board with as a player. No AAA game can hope to live up to the hype that is generated these days....particularly if the developer has created something so beloved as Halo previously.

Bought it on PS4 only because I had all of the previous games on Playstation 3 and enjoyed them. Talk about a lucky decision. The PC version seems like it was a clusterfuck that would have just pissed me off, where as the PS4 version was a hugely entertaining game. I also skipped the season pass...which was less luck and more "I don't pay for shit before I know what it is I am paying for".

Great games. Awful voiceovers. Don't even think about playing without others.
Voiceovers weren't that bad!

The voice acting was less than stellar but they weren't bad enough to make a difference in the appreciation of the game. I would also add that I thought the two previous games were an absolutely great solo experience. Somewhat like the Lego games in that you have to switch to the character that is appropriate for the puzzle at hand. I loved it.

News Comments > Star Citizen FPS Development Moves In-House

Well, usually this kind of thing is the other way around...development studio hands off project to third party so as to shrink it's own staff or focus on something else. Of all the announcements, this is probably the most positive. It makes sense in just about any way, as opposed to selling more virtual ships or adding yet more stuff....or whatever else they usually announce.

It's rare, but there really isn't much negative to say about this move unless you are one of the people who has been let go.

edit: ...or one of the people who seems to have an unhealthy infatuation with criticizing this project every single time it's posted about, despite not actually having any money in it. I mean seriously...you can only say "suckers..he is ripping you off!" so many ways and so many times. I mean, people might be getting ripped off but how many times you gonna bang your head on that brick wall?

They probably didn't bother with the extended mod tools this time because Witcher 2 never really formed a strong mod community. The series has never been as popular amongst modders as Bethesda's games. It's kind of like how DAO had extensive mod tools but nobody really cared, so Bioware didn't bother with DA2 and Inquisition.

exactly.. there are like 10 mods for W2, and the most popular one was made by one of the devs

..which is hilarious because both Oblivion and Skyrim have a ton of Witcher 1, 2, and 3 inspired mods. Hell, you can basically dress everyone in Skyrim to look like everyone in the Witcher 2 at this point.

My conspiracy theory is that the console manufacturer's deliberately make the UI clunky and hard to use so that you will use crap like Kinect and voice commands to do stuff. Motive? I have none, I suck at conspiracy theories. All I know is that as soon as I get used to how bad a console UI is and actually find a way to make it comfortably usable...they change it into something worse.

I am collector so I have never been a fan of digital purchases. I like knowing that as long as I keep the physical media and the console I have access to the game regardless of what the manufacturer decides to support or if they stay in business. Aside from that one of the other big reasons I make so few purchases currently is because I find the PS store to be so bad I am tempted to believe they do it on purpose just to see how much shit gamers will swim through to get to their next fix. The most unstable piece of shit software on my PS3? The Playstation Store, and it isn't even close. It loads slow, it's cumbersome, and it spontaneously reboots the console. They should have kept the old version of the store like they did with the Vita instead of trying to make it match the PS4 store. It's slow and cumbersome on the PS4 as well...but at least it doesn't cause it to reboot randomly.

The media keeps saying this hasn't happened before. Short memories. Staubach got decked too. In practice, not in the locker room, but still...

It effectively ended Clint Longley's career as well.
