I don't know why DICE even bothers to patch any of their games. They know you suckers are just going to keep giving them money no matter what. Lol!
You've got a point! This is why I still maintain I'd rather play Call of Duty. Sure CoD is the same thing every year, but it functions properly and delivers exactly what you expect. Battlefield games are such disasters...I think people should have ten times the hate for DICE delivering buggy terrible products than for Activision delivering working products that are clearly in demand.

CoD may be boring to some, but at least it isn't broken.

I don't mean to stir things up but it amazes me how many issues BF4 beta has, after playing for about 6 hours personally. DICE, after, years of working with BF3 still manages to produce a very buggy, very poorly performing game, with many exploits and balance issues.

On the other hand, Call of Duty games don't use betas but always manage to release in a great, stable, well-performing state (except BLOPS1). Granted, CoD games aren't as expansive in their reach I suppose, but BF4 is so much like BF3 making the "innovation" point a bit moot.

So I'm left to wonder: would I rather have an ambitious "realistic" game that is a mess or a more simplified shooter that runs and plays great even if it is not so complex.

I guess the real answer we all can hope for is simply: Titanfall.

Deep Silver shall NOT be forgiven for making the Ranger Mode a paid-for DLC. Deep Silver is not our friend. They overcharge for lame DLC. I love Metro, but I cannot support lame DLC cash grabs. Thank you and goodnight.

Very annoyed that 90% of all the clothes/outfits are taken directly from SR3 The Full Package. Moreover, the outfits are blurry and incredibly low-resolution. So far SR4 seems to literally be a repackaging of SR3 content...which is what most of us feared.

Moreover, the Initiation/Inauguration Station is literally identical from SR3 too, complete with lack of anti-aliasing and horrible lighting. Way to NOT present your game well.

The fact that they didn't bother building a new city either...SR4 better deliver some Infamous level gameplay or otherwise it will just be a big rehash of SR3. ...not pleased so far.

Let's see...Walking Dead had major save game issues for many players including myself, constant quick-time events, no proper gameplay, glitchy controls and animations...um, just no. The $10 I paid for the whole season wasn't worth it, and I won't support their "games" anymore.

The story wasn't anything special beyond simple binary choices between who lives and dies. The "emotions" everyone felt was just the result of manipulating feelings toward key characters. True choices has been done before, and done much better.

The tremendous voicework from the two main characters is pretty much what made people love the game. QTE-psuedo-games must DIE. That is all.

On a side note, anyone try this game is it any good? Should I buy and play through the first one?
Definitely buy the first one and play it. And yes, both Metro's are absolutely brilliant games. They are the modern day Half-Life's. Metro LL is absolutely stunning in every way. It is a must play.

But I'd play the first one first. The second is a direct sequel.

Here's hoping it has vastly improved controls because the first Sanctum was a fantastic idea totally ruined by clunky, awkward controls.

This is just a lame rip-off of Anno 1404 with much less detail, less freedom, and forced micro-transactions if you want to expand.

If anyone thinks this looks interesting, just go buy Anno 1404, which is an absolutely brilliant city builder/economic sim sadly not available on Steam anymore since Ubisoft messed up the patching.

I say this about Anno 1404 after putting 300 hours into it and making an Unofficial Patch that fixes about 10,000 things.

Wow, Red Dead Redemption a top contributor even now almost exactly 3 years from release. I admit I bought a Playstation 3 last December to play Red Dead (and a few other titles like Ni no Kuni). Red Dead has some of the greatest acting, writing, and voice work ever, IMO.

Likewise, I've got 260 hours into BL2, so I've got to give respect to Gearbox for at least making one fantastic game (even though I really dislike Gearbox on the whole for obvious reasons). Just last week in BL2 I heard several enemies shout out hilarious lines I'd never noticed before, even after 200+ hours, so that's saying something!

I just played Dead Island for the first time. 26 hours for first playthrough and LOVED it. No other game is like it. Plus modding on the PC totally fixed the wonky controls and inventory issues. With a few tweaks (Dead Island Helper, forced AA, more ammo, stackable items, movement axis tweaks) the game becomes REALLY excellent.

I don't get the hate for Riptide. It is another chance to enjoy over twenty hours of open-world zombie slashing. I pity the people who don't enjoy cutting zombies up with shock katanas.

I finally wrote up a piece reviewing Gamespot's quite horrible review of Riptide. I think that review is the worst I've ever read on a major gaming site. It is so full of his personal hatred for the game and void of actual information.

I imagine he had to review the game quite rapidly, wasting his whole weekend making him angry, and causing him to not have enough time to properly understand the game mechanics.

Anyway...a cookie to anyone who reads at least three paragraphs of my thoughts. Might spur some interesting discussion regarding the nature of game reviews. Or maybe I'm just a big, clueless swine. Could go either way.

Things like the Boston bombings are why there needs to be a Hell. God will give justice to evil people; they won't escape unless they repent, which is unlikely. I'm just glad God offers eternal life freely so that we can be assured that despite horrible tragedies, things will be good in the end.

Btw, things like this are also why I could never be a fatalist or Calvinist...or an evolutionist. Life must have meaning and there must be free will. But this is all my opinion and you are free to disagree.

That isn't enough. My point was if you were to take a living figure and create a fictional version of them, you can get sued for defamation. Parody is ok, such as how the Simpsons or South Park do it...

...but to actually use a historical figure's name and represent him entirely opposite of his true nature...the problem is AC isn't going for comedy or absurdism...so just strikes me as disrespectful.

I'm having a hard time coming up with other fictional stories that purposefully represent real life figures entirely opposite of their true nature in a serious manner. Can anyone think of any?

Ha, well UHF is a classic. That scene is brilliant because it is so perfect parody....and obvious comedy. The AC3 DLC actually takes itself seriously...its not like Undead Nightmare DLC for Red Dead or Nightmare in Northpoint DLC in Sleeping Dogs.

I just really dislike them portraying Washington this way. It is basically slander. I'm ok with alternate history games like saying the Nazis took over the world because the Nazis were trying for this very thing. Or even Lincoln Vampire Hunter because it is a total joke concept.

But to take a real historical figure and misrepresent him so utterly...Washington refused to be King in real life. It just strikes me as crossing a line. You'd get sued if you represented a living figure in this manner...I guess I just don't like people misrepresenting history in such a serious manner.

Sounds like they're taking some cues from Path of Exile and Torchlight 2. Oh well, steps in the right direction at least. That guy sounds like he really does understand some of the design problems and mistakes made.
Agree. My love for D1 & D2 compels me to wish D3 does become great. Although I personally view its story as nothing but a bad dream by Deckard Cain-this makes D3 so much more tolerable and actually funny story-wise.
