Didn't Alan Wake put an eye patch on your character if you pirated it?

I haven't heard of this one, so I did a bit of research, and turns out they did. (source)

Own it on 360 and PC, but I may just pirate it now to have that model. Unless theres an unlock or cheat to put it in

It's one of my favourite games of all time, why would they have something as funny/cool as that just for pirates?! Or does the game additionally not work, too?

@patrick if you pre-order from amazon, you don't pay a dime until it is shipped. most games have reviews out a few days before launch, which allows you to see if it's something you really want to spend money on. if it looks like crap, just cancel the preorder, no harm done. i actually pre-ordered destiny WAAAY back in the day just so i could get into the beta to test it out. if i don't like it after playing the beta, i can cancel the pre-order. no harm, no foul. :)

Wait, in that case what's to stop you from pre-ordering Destiny from amazon, getting your beta code email and then just cancelling your pre-order? Nothing?

Nothing. You got to be in the beta for free, essentially.

@james_hayward Sorry dude, I can't make it. Family planned a dinner with other relatives for tomorrow, it's a ramadan thing. Enjoy it though!

That dude who did the terrible Mila Kunis interview (some of those questions were really predictable and too personal, come on) should see this amazing one that went viral:

Even other actresses know of that interview:

huh, I heard about the 3DS RTS game but surprised to hear about this.

Still haven't gotten into the show when I have friends who are storyboard artists on it.


Just for Korra or the original as well?

They are wonderful friends I have known for years. But when it comes to watching the shows...... kinda feel like I have no pulse going on. My best friend did some work on My Little Pony, and I still can't get into that either. I acknowledge they are talented, and I appreciate their work but just not into the shows themselves.

Dude, that is awesome! One of the best cartoons on right now with some of the best action, they must be mad talented. So fucking pumped for Season 3.

A sequel is possible? Dear god yes! Thank you for this interview @patrickklepek! I want to go up to these developers and hug them, they're incredibly talented and to see what came out in the final product in this AAA space is astonishing. I was worried that this wouldn't be a great feeling FPS since The Darkness was more hot on the storytelling than shooting department, but with Syndicate and now this, they've conquered previous weaknesses. They really need to be commended for going against the grain in so many aspects.

Who expects a FPS that doesn't follow the CoD formula (no need for aim-for-sights, no hit markers, no restricted 2-weapon system, dual wielding, sliding and shooting at the same time, best cover system ever, rarely any bullet sponges, health and armour packs, wide complex levels instead of linear corridors, stealth being a viable and actually fun option rather than to just satisfy an achievement/trophy, no cool scripted weapon to be only used for one setpiece section) and tackles mature themes and subject matter like race or concentration camps or being an old relic for a new world (which was very No Country For Old Men) or true romance all while having a blackly comic tone? Inglorious Basterds, Robocop, and District 9 (which felt like a Paul Verhoeven homage anyway) are perfect references. Gave heart and charm to a musclebound action hero. Gave excellent and charismatic female characters in games (Anya, Caroline, Tekla, Frau Engel).

Wolfenstein The New Order is one of my favourite FPSs ever now, it had the perfect mix between excellent gameplay and storytelling. It has set the new standard that just because you want to tell a good story, it doesn't have to sacrifice good gameplay or divorce it in just cutscenes or supplemental audio diaries and documents.

I don't drink alcohol (muslim), would that be a problem?

I'd love to get in some Gang Beasts action.
