apple without Jobs isnt apple... its yuppie dell

Its always been yuppie dell.

i guess you werent alive in the 80s or 90s

they were never particularly "awesome" but Jobs definitely made them unique to a certain degree, mostly through his neurotic psychosis

Oh I was alive then, and outside of rare education institutions you were hard pressed to find an Apple anything. Everything was IBM PCs. Apples gained a cult following among "creative" types and from there the iPod and hipsters made them go more mainstream. But they've always sucked to anyone who knows half a damn about computers.

You must not have watched the whole video. Police got out of a car and checked the truck driver, not sure if he was in filming car or behind. Was probably radioing it all in first.

In my dreams, they use this engine and create a full-fledged single-player only game (maybe co-op). One that's a lot more fleshed out. I've been treating the game as single-player already, but the "campaign" isn't really long enough.

Totally! I've been doing the same but it really does need a proper SP campaign. I thought the new Ghost Recon would be using this engine, but apparently its not - which is a shame, because the Snowdrop engine is beautiful.

Have you seen the "gameplay" trailer?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NOIzH6UcoW4

It looks like shit. They go all the way to another freaking GALAXY and you're still running into the same alien races from the first lot of games?

And why are they all against each other if they went there on the same ship?

I was hoping for all new races and stories, but this just looks like the same ol' shite from ME2 and 3.

I was also hoping for more of a return to the first game; with the emphasis on exploration, story, role playing, etc. and less on the constant gunplay and combat every 15 seconds. I mean, honestly, it's like "Michael Bay" came and took over on the sequels.

Whew, thankfully bethesda aren't a bunch of dumbasses who would post major spoilers of the game, in a press release.

What do you mean? I have reread the whole thing multiple times and there's not a hint of a spoiler in it. All it contains is a brief description of the non-interactive intro sequence at the very beginning of the game.

I think he somehow wasn't being sarcastic.

Hehe, nah, I was being sarcastic. Well a sarcastic idiot, if fds is correct. Let's see if I owe bethesda and the world an apology.

What I mean is...I read it once and it spoiled the story. Here's the quote, since apparently need to point it out.

...the mad witch Delilah seizes the throne the fate of your Empire is left hanging in the balance...

So that's not a story spoiler in a PR release? Remember just like millions of other gamers I still haven't played it. I'm not even sure what to say about fds's claim there is no story anymore. Apparently they are just levels for you to run around in. Not sure why bethesda didn't think of this before. They could have saved all the money paid for the stories, in their previous games!
Can you be spoiled by being told something that takes place about 10 minutes into the game, which is right after the tutorial sequence?

Ignoring the tutorial, it is literally the introduction sequence that starts the game proper, before you choose to play as Corvo or Emily. Or is that a spoiler too?

So yeah, he's an idiot. He even thinks Bethesda made it. They just released it. It was made by Arkane Studios.

But I agree the story is pretty bad. It's really weak compared to the first game, which is a real shame.

While it was "technically" quite good and I enjoyed all of the gimmicks of each level, Arkane definitely bad some very strange decisions with the sequel.

The worst of which was the (mis)casting and mediocre performances of the voice cast in my opinion. With the exception of Emily they were all entirely forgettable.

The Duke, Ramsey, Delilah and the new Outsider were all absolutely atrocious. Most of the performances were either embarrassingly "over-the-top" caricatures (when they should have been intimidating, menacing or serious) while others were just plain B-grade level bad!

And there were some big name actors too, like Vincent D'Onofrio and Sam Rockwell; Who are great actors, so they should have killed it!

And I know it was just fan service to use the voice actor from the original Thief games to voice Corvo Attano, but that dude cant act for shit... his performance was cringe-worthy.

You know, even Sokolov sounded worse in this one - and that was the same guy voicing him from the first game.

My bet is on abysmal directing. Either a straight up bad/inexperience voice director or it was all done separate to the game and the actors simply had no reference or idea of how they were meant to be interacting and sounding.

I really wish they had have stuck with the original voice actors from the first game too (eg. Meagan Foster, The Outsider). While Rosario Dawson did a good enough job, the Penguin guy was definitely bad.

It's like they decided to screw continuity and world building and just go all Hollywood and use "big names" even when the originals did perfectly good jobs last time.

Side-note: And was it just me who thought that Corvo and the Duke should have sounded more Mediterranean (Spanish or Italian accents)? You know, seeing as they're both native Serkonans and all.

All in all, it was a mixed bag. Which is a shame because I loved the original.

That Apple related news bit is really amazing, first off, they aren't repairing nor fixing it, they are replacing phones, and secondly, they don't move your data over, so good luck to you getting your phone back to how it was before. That's really shitty customer service

And you have to pay them $149 for the privilege

I still dont understand the mentality of the iSheep cult

So why would a game company go cross-platform? So PC users can tell console users what terrible people they are while destroying them less due to skill and more due to equipment?

That tends to be my bottom line as well. At the end of the day not everybody enjoys gaming the same way. If two different ways of gaming are successful monetarily, I wouldn't think you (as a developer or publisher) would be anxious to do anything that might upset that balance....regardless of what the actual gamers say. The sales numbers tell the story better than any forum thread full of the vocal minority might. At least from a certain point of view. We all find that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view. Smartass


Srop feeding the troll.

Fucking LOL. That's classic, coming from you.

i probably didnt read this right,,, but..

can we get some freaking FINANCIAL data in your FINANCIAL report and not bullshit numbers of how many people have played your online game?


If you were interested in the FINANCIAL data in the FINANCIAL report maybe you should have clicked the link to said FINANCIAL report and received the information you're asking for.

"Maybe I didn't read this right..."

You didn't read it at all imbecile.

that escalated quickly..
