News Comments > HITMAN Free Sample [Updated]
17. Re: HITMAN Episode 1 for Free Jun 20, 2017, 20:44 jacobvandy
 
So does anybody know where we go to get Episode 1 for free? All I see on the Steam store page is an all-inclusive bundle for sale, or everything *except* Episode 1 available separately as DLC. Looks like there's a demo, but that's not it, right? I mean, I thought they're giving away part of the real game... Are they having issues and it's not really available yet, or what?

I used to do an acre with a motorized push mower every week and that was bad enough... Any more than that and you're going to want something you can sit on and drive around.

Fucking drama queens. Them losers been playing that game every fucking day since it came out for PC. This is the kind of shit that has Rockstar flip the PC off for.

So you're against gamers voicing their discontent when a developer kills mods in order to juice more money out of the customers? You like all these microtransactions and day one DLC bs? Because it happened when gamers didn't say anything. Who cares if Rockstar puts their game on PC or not. We've got infinite good games to play, we don't need to bend over for them.

Voice it all you want, but it has nothing to do with game itself. Reviews aren't there for angry nerds and their bandwagoning circlejerks trying to "stick it to the man." They're for telling people your opinion of the game. This type of pointless nonsense (along with the retarded memes and other jokes so often voted "most helpful") is why a lot of people don't bother reading Steam reviews at all.

Ah man this 'solar paint' is going to be debunked as badly as solar roads did.

Why is it called 'solar paint' when it creates hydrogen from water vapor? This is like that sports water bottle that refills itself from the moisture in the air.

I see you made it to the second sentence of the article, however the answer to your question is in the fifth. Just a little further!

I'm not so sure it'll be quite that long, IIRC Retro Studios has been working on something we don't know about since they finished their last Donkey Kong. Regardless, I'm hoping they release the Prime Trilogy again (would be the third time, lol) to tide us over until then!

And playing with a gamepad to boot, yuck... The main reason I'm interested in it coming to PC is NOT having to do that. Shame on you, GeForce video maker guy. Fucking shame!

I don't know anything about the franchise, but it is certainly odd to name a prequel as if it's a sequel.

I had about 10 seconds of hope when they debuted this trailer, that we might actually see something new in the series rather than yet another remaster...

News Comments > Metro Exodus Announced

Everyone loves to hate on MS, but you gotta hand it to them here... Their Play Anywhere initiative and push for 4K+ with the xXBONEXx is working to elevate cross-platform titles like this to levels far beyond what we'd otherwise get to see. This new Metro along with Anthem are the two I'm most looking forward to, but AFAIK every single thing they showed at their conference yesterday is also going to be on PC. "Exclusive" to them these days means simply "not on PlayStation," and I admit, it's kind of nice.

The combat is definitely different, they're going a more RPG route with floating damage numbers, random loot drops, and enemies of varying level that may be too strong to confront when you first encounter them. Historical accuracy in technology is not going to be a limiting factor, either, since you're playing a magi who can apparently do mystical shit like guide an arrow in flight, Yondu-style.

Here's the real gameplay they showed yesterday: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YX0fd4q0baQ

What exactly about this video is supposed to make me want to buy this game?

Blue posted the teaser from yesterday, see the YT link posted in the comment below for the actual ~6 minute demo from a few hours ago.

I'm not sure why EA bothered having their conference a day earlier than everyone else, when the biggest thing they brought this year was contracted out to be shown by Microsoft instead...

It could be an Evolve clone, for all we know so far.

Nevermind, it's Destiny, lol.

News Comments > Star Wars Battlefront II May Feature Microtransactions
3. Re: Star Wars Battlefront II May Feature Microtransactions Jun 11, 2017, 14:24 jacobvandy
 
Even though it's EA and chances are decent he's right, it's still baseless speculation, especially the implication with battle points. They may have unlocker packs for class progression, but I'm pretty sure the BP system is analogous to kill streak rewards in Call of Duty. They're not a persistent in-game currency, you have to start over earning them each match and it works to escalate the conflict after a duration, with the summoning of vehicles and heroes. They'd be shooting themselves in the foot again if they let people pay money to spawn as Darth Maul right out of the gate, or pay enough money to continue playing him the entire match.

I skipped the last one because of the mediocre reviews, but everything they're saying about this sequel is starting to pique my interest again. New, original story in an offline campaign, loads more MP content from across the entire saga, no more power-up token bullshit, free DLC...

Don't feel bad for returning 90% of a product you're not happy with. Some people shamelessly demand their money back for a bag of chips or whatever after they already ate more than half of it, like it took them that long to figure out they weren't satisfied, lol.

Unless it was really cheap, like under a dollar per "drink" (is this stuff like Go-Gurt for grown-ups or what?), then I'd just be too lazy to bother. More Jerry than Kramer, I guess, just learn the lesson and move on.

*shrug* It reads fairly balanced to me, probably since it's local news station from OK. They point out the study doesn't account for various other dietary factors that may contribute to the differences, so it doesn't mean real milk is god's gift to healthy children. It's just that people might think that if the non-dairy stuff is better for adults (which is judged on having less saturated fat or cholesterol, etc) that that means it's better for their growing kids, too, when that may not be the case. Especially when there's no regulation on what a milk substitute is or what it contains, it's easy to make the mistake of assuming they're nutritionally equivalent.

As for the health of the dairy industry in general, consumption per capita in the US has increased in the past 20 years. The drinking of fluid milk has declined about 25%, but it's more than been made up for in how much yogurt and cheese people eat. https://www.ers.usda.gov/webdocs/DataFiles/48685/pcconsp_1_.xlsx

Study Finds Children Who Drink Non-Dairy Milk Shorter Than Peers.

Ah yes, the death throes of the dairy industry. It won't be long now until cows milk is a delicacy instead of a staple.

Nobody want's to drink your abuse juice anymore. Given that 1/2 of the world already doesn't and never did drink it, and they still don't get osteoporosis there is no reason to drink cows milk.

I'm not sure if you really comprehended that incorrectly or you just didn't bother to read even the whole headline after scanning and being triggered by one or two words... Calcium is never even mentioned in the article, btw.

the only actual relation to shit in the game (besides the game being absolute shit) is that the projectiles are brown and make fart noises when you hit people.

Well yeah, there's only so much you can do in that regard until smell-o-vision comes along...
