But if Amazon ships their own stuff, who else can they blame when your shit is late or lost?

I admit I'm not an OG fan of Dead Rising, had a hard time getting into 2 when I tried it, but I did enjoy 3 when I finally got around to playing that a couple months ago. Everyone says 4 is the worst thing ever, but considering a lot of that is probably just sour grapes I'll pick it up when it gets down to $10 or so on sale.

Lol, apparently they have a new game coming out soon, but there's been so little coverage of it that it's not even listed on their Wikipedia page: https://gematsu.com/2017/08/techland-announces-gods-trigger-ps4-xbox-one-pc

Looks like some low budget filler to make some money while they continue working on Dying Light 2 or Hellraid or whatever. Or it's just the next thing they're publishing and that's not made very clear.

Just mind your own business and don't actively seek out combat, you'll fairly effortlessly make it to the top 25 more often than not. Can't tell you how many times the least-skilled member of our group has lasted the longest because he's off in some shack somewhere trying to figure out the controls or deciding which attachment for weapons he doesn't even have he should hold on to, while the rest of us are looking for action and finding too much, lol.

For most games you see titled in all caps, it's because that's how the Japanese have always done it when they translate shit to English. Everyone else is just trying to stand out.

Well, we had a taste of 40-degree highs in December (sandwiching a week-long heatwave of 70+ while y'alls snowstorms were raging), but as of mid-January I think CA is already in springtime. Mid-60s this week and 70s next...

but I find that "innocent until proven guilty" is just a load of bullshit when it comes to real life.

True, it hasn't meant a whole lot since social media came about and the whole world started listening to and making decisions by a handful of often anonymous dumbasses and their phony outrage. Nowadays any baseless accusation can ruin a person.

If it's anything like the Musou/Warriors games Koei Tecmo makes, they're hack and slash action games, not JRPGs, so by comparison there really isn't much story or dialogue in them at all. It's supposed to tie in with the second season of the anime, so I presume it'll have some, but there won't be literally hours of cutscenes throughout a super long campaign. It's more like some brief set-up for each combat scenario, and then most of the gameplay time is spent outside of story mode anyway, on various other standalone scenarios. Probably will still be some repetitive battle cries, though. :p

Download the WB Cinema app and if enough people pay a $2 fee when prompted the projectionist will play an EXCLUSIVE post-credits scene!

Yep, coins so they can jump into and swim around in their $7.1b+ cash reserves like Scrooge McDuck.

That Humble Rockstar Bundle is a disgustingly good deal if somehow someone didn't have most or all of those games already.

News Comments > Fallout 4 Free Weekend
26. Re: Fallout 4 Free Weekend Jan 30, 2018, 20:00 jacobvandy
 
I think we need to be prepared for another 7-8 year gap between FO4 and FO5, at least... We know Bethesda Game Studios is working on a new IP which is coming before TES VI does, so even assuming they don't have another new thing coming after that, Fallout is third in line for releases from a studio that puts something out once every 3-5 years.

With that said, I'd be surprised if we don't get another side project or spin-off from a different developer in the meantime. Regardless of anyone's opinion of the games' quality, Fallout is now a top tier AAA franchise and there's no doubt they're looking to capitalize on that more.

You want the Armorsmith Extended mod, it fixes up just about everything to do with armor and opens up a lot more customization. It's pretty OP if you stack as much as you can with ballistic weave in every piece, but it is nice to be able to make any outfit you want at least usable for playing in.

If they can figure out a way to make a Keurig machine for soda that isn't stupid expensive, I might want one. Otherwise, who owns what doesn't affect people much. AFAIK Dr. Pepper and 7-Up and whatever else is under that umbrella are already licensed out to be distributed by either Coke or Pepsi in most places.

The number doesn't mean anything, you continue earning skill points at each subsequent "level-up" and once you fill out the entire skill tree you're left with three nodes for ranged/melee/ability damage that can each be raised indefinitely. There is no limit to how strong you can become through grinding or spending real money (which we all know is the reason why it's uncapped).

Their leveling system doesn't have a cap, though, and they already created a setting that makes all enemies scale to you. One way to try to cure a boring endgame is to just let you repeat the story and location checklist again.

I'm 35 hours in so far and it's really opening up. Past the "naked and afraid" stage, the story exposition, the first couple levels of technology advancement... I just parked my mobile home-away-from-home 850m down in a big-ass cave so I can really explore it without having to make such long trips back to drop off loot and resupply. Though I had to kill a pretty big monster to get some peace and quiet, first...

The ocean world concept is brilliant for a survival game because it makes it very obvious where is safe and where is not, beginning with your access to oxygen. Land is rare but pretty much a paradise, shallows are well lit with plentiful food and other basic supplies, while you gotta deal with the darkness and increasingly more dangerous wildlife that dwell deeper in order to find more advanced resources/tech and progress the story. Then if you're venturing away from the surface at all, you need a source of breathable air, which means keeping your undersea habitat(s) and/or vehicles in good shape and powered up as you range ever further from where you started.

Yes, it's rough around the edges, the controls and menus are pretty wonky and there are a lot of minor bugs I've been reporting, but that's never stopped me from enjoying a great game before. Every single game that exists really should have this handy-dandy feedback tool, though. You press F8 and it pauses the game, takes a screenshot, prompts you for a brief description and general category, then you submit it by clicking on one of four emotes ranging from green and smiling to red and pissed off.

Yeah... As someone who kept up with earning Infernal or Gold portrait frames every season for the first 7 or 8 seasons, even I don't really care anymore. They're still giving away the same fucking armor skins they have from the start, at two pieces per season it's all been repeated FOUR TIMES now. Totally "exclusive!"

A friend of mine gifted me this game today.

While we too often criticize, another way games have become better... Gifting.

Huh? I could've sworn people have been buying games for other people for as long as the medium has existed, lol.

I'm not a fan of the super low-res pixel art, but it's supposed to be a really great 2D platformer.
