I want them to stop pretending they give a shit about PC gaming.

That, or bring back GFWL.

I can't decide which.

News Comments > Blood Rerelease Plans
6. Re: Blood Rerelease Plans Dec 7, 2018, 14:33 SMITE
 
I am so, SO psyched for this. Blood is one of my favorite FPS of all time. And yes I remember Sin--No weapon spread! Firing a shotgun was the same as a pistol--and Kingpin: Life of Crime, which was another one of my favorites. Kingpin had an awesome aesthetic and some great melee action. That first lead pipe you get ... There was something about the character models in that game that just created a sense of physicality other games lacked. It's too bad it lost focus in later levels, but the first half of Kingpin still holds some very fond memories for me. Nothing tops the first time I fired the flare gun and set a cultist on fire though.

*yawn*

From what I've seen of the game (saw a few streamers play it) the game doesn't hit any of my "must play" buttons.

Admiteddly they weren't very far in, but the writing and dialogue wasn't that awesome and the player's character is far from a cool & mysterious gunslinger type that would draw me into the story.

The gameplay itself looked kind of meh.

I thought the writing in the first game was vastly overrated. Every other sentence was some variation of "But the federal gub'mint!" or some cheesy western cliche that made Zane Grey sound like William Fucking Shakespeare by comparison. Pages and pages of filler that didn't advance the narrative or fill out the characters or even succeed on the level of window dressing. But people loved it and will defend it to the death. I thought the writing in GTA V was a thousand times better and it wasn't even that good.

Twitter, the worst of the worst: teaching the world to be stupid in 280 characters or less. I wish people would wake up to the fact that having--and preserving--an attention span, is actually a good thing.

On the whole most people aren't. It's just that tiny minority of special little snowflakes who believe everyone should be able to sail through life without ever putting forth any effort, being put upon, or offended in even the slightest way. Oh boo hoo, life is tough, isn't it?

The backlash against GOG is totally ridiculous and over the top. Appropriating the slogan "Won't be erased" is NOT a fucking hate crime. If anything it's akin to Pepsi "appropriating" protest imagery to sell soda, which was cheesy, but not an assault on humanity. Not to mention the fact that GOG deleted the tweet about three seconds after it went up. There is a hardcore segment of the online population, left and right, that has been taught to gorge themselves on the feeling of being outraged, and now they're like addicts, constantly searching for their next fix. Facebook and all the rest are the real culprits, since their entire existence is based on creating more addicts like this. Outrage is their most effective method of generating attention.

Sorry, no fisting, no sale.

That's EXACTLY why I got a Steam refund for Barbie Dreamhouse Party.

The trailer totally made it seem like a different game.

Jesus Christ, people...

To find out the number of actual, non-inflatable women who were seduced as a result of those sales, simply take the 125,000 figure, and put a negative sign in front of it.

I like Hamm a lot as an actor but he's pushing 50 now. Maybe 10 or 20 years ago he would have made an awesome Batman. Now Affleck is only a year younger than him but he's always been way more physical and he makes a great Bats too but Bale was 31 when he first did bats. I think we've covered this ground before but 30-35 seems about the right age for someone to be playing the role.

Speaking of Hamm if you haven't seen Beirut yet give it a watch. Really good film. He and Rosamund Pike do a brilliant job.

Affleck is terrible. He has the physique but not the gravitas. There is something essentially light weight about him. He just isn't someone who can play a tortured soul like Bruce Wayne.

Hamm on the other hand, would be perfect, and no, 50 is not too old at all. It fits perfectly with the Dark Knight as depicted by Frank Miller.

Way, way more impressed with this than I thought I would be. I'm a sucker for the whole Lovecraft aesthetic and this game has it in spades. Pysched for the full release.

I played it again not that long ago and I think it holds up very well. It got a lot of (deserved) heat on release for texture bugs, etc, but the patched version--with the color correction mod to get rid of those stupid level tints--was a lot of fun to play. Nice art design, meaty gunplay, and the vehicular combat wasn't bad either. Still looks better than Fallout 4.

"This has no gameplay, it's an animation intended to convey the project's charm."

So it's completely useless when it comes to actually showing me anything about the game itself?

That's great! I'll be sure to watch it right away.

I just don't understand the whole "passively watching other people play games" thing. If you don't have the option to play those games because you can't afford them or whatever, okay--I can kind of see that. But it feels like this generation somehow prefers watching others play. Which to me, is the epitome of lame.

Private ownership of ASSAULT rifles it only of interest to those planning an... assault? Or what do they need an assault rifle for?

hunting, personal protection, sport.

the AR in AR-15 doesn't stand for Assault Rifle, who knew.

The AR in “AR-15” rifle stands for ArmaLite rifle, after the company that developed it in the 1950s. “AR” does NOT stand for “assault rifle” or “automatic rifle.” AR-15-style rifles are NOT “assault weapons” or “assault rifles.” An assault rifle is fully automatic — a machine gun.

Bla bla bla. "You don't know the difference between a clip and a magazine? That means your opinion on gun deaths is totally invalid."

Because terminology is really what's important here. Nice to see you getting all piqued about what "AR" stands for rather than the 40,000 plus gun deaths a year. Nice priorities you have there.

Not that it matters, but the U.S. Army would like to disagree with your claim that "assault rifle" means "machine gun." Plenty of machine guns would not qualify as assault rifles in military parlance, due to lack of range among other things.

Dear republicans,,MAYBE ITS THE FUCKING GUN ,

No, if its the gun then vidya games are just as much to blame.

Perhaps it is our culture overall? Maybe SSRI type drugs? Nah. Blame the guns, video games, movies, or music.

Right. Because someone armed with "culture" walked into that school and murdered 17 people.

What a bullshit excuse. I'll tell you what. "Video games, movies or music," never killed ANYONE.

Guns? Yeah. THOSE kill people. That's what they're DESIGNED to do.

Now you'll tell me that the guns didn't kill anyone, it's people who do the killing.

So how many of those people used a movie, video game, or music to kill someone?

How many of them used guns?

When you break it down ... your argument is totally stupid.

Whitta’s impressive (and numerous) credits include standouts like Rogue One: A Star Wars Story... “Know what you’re trying to communicate thematically,” he says, “create characters we can care about,

Well I guess giving good advice and being able to follow your own advice are two different things .

You're criticizing Rogue One's writing?

I found it to be much, much better than the negative reviews it received would indicate.

Which was oddly the reverse of the critical adulation Last Jedi received--one of the worst big budget films I've ever seen.
If you disliked Last Jedi you might like this reviewer.
“Last Jedi” is just another middling movie with a rabid fanbase, a Harry Potter-style placeholder picture for lump-in-the-throat moments to come. Or so we hope."

Oh and he slams Black Panther, that's akin to handling newborns with pitchforks.

It's funny that you would recommend this reviewer and these two reviews to me, RedEye9, because I literally just read them both yesterday, though I did the reverse of what you're suggesting--i.e. I read his Black Panther review which made me immediately wonder what he had to say about Last Jedi, so I found that and read it too.

I stumbled upon "Movie Nation" because I was curious to find out if ANYONE was willing to give Black Panther a bad review. I haven't seen it yet, but I have read a number of positive reviews for Panther and they all irritated me in exactly the same way--they seem to be reviewing what the film represents, what it stands for, more than they are reviewing it as a, you know, movie.

I'm fine with more black representation in movies. That's a worthy goal. But achieving some sort of milestone in black representation in your movie and making a good movie are not automatically one and the same--and most of the reviews I've read seem to assume that one equals the other. Which is just ... ridiculous.

Whenever a reviewer spends more time talking about the cultural and/or political background or impact of a movie than they do the movie itself ... I know I'm reading a worthless review. Don't get me wrong: those things are important--but they are nowhere near as important as the quality of the movie itself.

The movie has to stand on its own, outside whatever political or cultural relevance it has.

So yeah ... I'm going to be seeking out this particular reviewer more in the future ... even if I do think he went a little too easy on Last Jedi.
