It's surprisingly awesome. For example; the animations are excellent and in the same style as Darksiders 1 and 2.

F*ck George Lucas and his "Midi-chlorians". He purged the credit he got for creating Star Wars when he turned around and destroyed it.

Yep. Not that it's unexpected really. He pulled the prequel stories out of his ass as they were making the film. If you doubt the veracity of that statement, watch the Red Letter Media Plinkett reviews. They contain some behind the scenes footage of Lucas during the production of the films and it's illuminating just how incompetent and lazy he was. Practically Rian Johnson lactating alien bad.

News Comments > Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Has $600M Opening Weekend

13. Re: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Has $600M Opening Weekend Oct 30, 2019, 17:32 mellis
 
I confess, I purchased this title (on PC). I haven't purchased a Call of Duty since Modern Warfare (original), and that's one of the reasons I bought this. I also wanted a fulfilling single player game that I could get through in a weekend and wasn't going to take 40+ hours which I just don't have at the moment (I'm sorry Outer Worlds, you look great though).

Modern Warfare (original) single player was fantastic (imho). Interesting story and characters, so when this came out - and it wasn't a remaster-of-the-remaster, I thought I'd get it.

While the game is well produced, it falls far short of its spiritual predecessor. I got through the entire campaign on Veteran difficulty in ~6 hours. The story was lacklustre and the only character I can recall is Captain Price and that's mainly because he was in the original 'Modern Warfare'.

The story is just bad with a terrible ending that involves (*spoiler*): the death of one of your squad for absolutely no reason. You've cleared the entire facility of bad guys and yet he announces over the com in the ending cut-scene he's not going to make it ... not only does it make no sense - the logical equivalent of deliberately sacrificing yourself to demolish a derelict building - no one on your team bats an eyelid, it's also too short and the missions are uninteresting.

Compared to the heart thumping tempo of the original this is a poor imitation and a good reason Activision won't be seeing any further purchases of the series from me.

All I see is the same wiffle bat level weapons gameplay with a sword of infinity wrapper.

Wiffle bat gameplay, what a spot on description.

Pity the game itself looks like a generic turd with a spattering of physics.

How can a game that's not due for release for nearly a year (WATCH DOGS: LEGION - 03/05/2020) already be available for pre-download?

News Comments > Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Gameplay Footage

Looks like a tween-rated version of Force Unleashed. 'Perky' robot side-kick? check. Zero intelligence force power 'puzzles'? check. Minimal violence? check. Retarded enemies? check. 10 troopers in one room are slaughtered, move to the next room and everyone is standing about obliviously like they're waiting for a bus.

It's also always a great sign when the level design shoe horns in enemy encounters. It's a massive mining facility, yet somehow it's overrun with 'fire beetles' and some sort of bug creatures that 'The Empire (or whatever they're called now)' hadn't managed to clean out, yet had still managed to erect the entire edifice.

Formulaic rubbish with some quite nice graphics.

Completely off-topic: a Just Cause 4 dev contacted me personally today because of a negative review I posted on Steam back when it was released.

Just Cause 4 was a lazy cash-grab. Identical game-play to JC3, except with less of everything. Less story (if that was even possible), less variation in misson design and most criminally of all; a lot less physics based destruction. The 'Tornado' based wind destruction gimmick was utterly anaemic especially compared to the pyrotechnical physics mayhem in JC3 (thinking of the mining complex on the plateau in JC3 in particular that was a veritable carnival of destruction).

They produced a game that was worse than its predecessor and were rightly punished for it.

If you think it's Tendinitis or any ligament/muscular inflammation I would suggest you try Arnica Cream.

Administer a good dollop around the affected area (rump) and massage evenly down towards the knee, following the tendon (typically massaging on the inside of the leg if it's Tendinitis).

Continue and massage evenly around the ball of the foot and heel, the inside of the leg (foot to knee) following the tendon to the knee.

Massage well until fully absorbed before bed and repeat again in the morning, applying to clean skin (ideally after a shower). Repeat until everything is resolved or noticeably better, typically 2-3 days.

It will reduce swelling but also seems to have some beneficial properties that promote healing. Stuff is a miracle in a tube.

This really is just like Fallout New Vegas, with the pros and cons.
I'm interested, but man that wasn't exactly a good demo.

Looked like the original version of Bioshock in more than just art style. Tiny enclosed areas (They could have at least invested in some smoke and mirrors to give the illusion of grandeur and scale), stilted animations and non-seamless area transitions made for some seriously dated looking gameplay, which is genuinely a shame.

Got to be a kick in the nuts to the Bioware team. Apex Legends lands without fanfare and goes on to garner widespread support and critical acclaim, Anthem lands ... like a wet turd after a bad curry.

I wonder if utilization by the military of AR will adversely effect the treatment of PTSD.

As in, it replaces the human beings you're shooting at with menacing clowns, and replaces the intestines of your buddy as your transport goes over an IED with confetti and streamers?

Basically, it is to reality what Chex Quest is to Doom?

Surprisingly enjoyable and I wasn't expecting much. Still a few minor glitches and some of the missions (where do you drop off Percy in the Woods?!?) could do with slightly more verbose direction, but a stable and enjoyable experience for me so far.

Less likely EA, more likely Disney. Unless it's a homogenized, family friendly, merchandisable up the wazoo and utterly inoffensive to everyone idea - it's not getting the green light from Uncle Mickey.

George Lucas was creatively bankrupt after episodes 4,5 6, but at least he let others with talent take the IP to some interesting places.

Star Wars - as the golden era of the 1980's-1990's film knew it - is dead.
