I want to know when everyone started caring so much about spoilers. I studied English Lit at uni, and it is impossible to do that without spoiling everything in lectures, tutorials, discussions or just when reading essays etc. That includes great classics of literature, even those not on the course. In comparison, who really gives a shit about the narrative of a game about a silly dragon thing?

@Manhattan_Project said:I guess I spoke to broadly. I mean they don't give a shit about non-subscribers. I don't follow them on Twitter so I don't know what happens there but here we regulars don't get any love. The community action that is TNT is subscriber only. The Flight Club is subscriber only. Jeff answers question that are asked to him by subscribers, for subscribers in Jar Time. Why is there shit even behind a pay wall anymore? The original reason they gave was because they wanted to remain independent, and it was helping keep five sites a float. What reason is there now for them to not just open up the content to everyone like a normal website?
@DarthOrange said:@C0V3RT said:I always liked the story Chris gave in the episode where they revisited the superman getting an atom bomb in the ass topic. Chris talked about getting into a fight with his dad and how he could never get hit him. "Come on and hit me! I fuck your mother!" That shit was the best! I didn't mind Cooper all that much but I thought Henry was just such a dick sometimes. Like when I said my game of the year was inFamous 2 Cooper was the only one that agreed that it was a fantastic game. Henry said I was full of shit. I figured someone like him would be able to appreciate a superhero game, but he always seemed to dislike the PS3. The best thing about TalkRadar was that they always had the community in their mind, and they never forgot about why they were recording a podcast in the first place. They always included fan art in their posts and they encouraged community activity. Hell, a third (usually more) of each podcast was dedicated to the community. The biggest reason I stopped listening to the bombcast and watching quick looks is because the staff here doesn't seem to give the first shit about us. They will occasionally rush through some emails and other then that will almost always just mention people on this site as being assholes on the internet who write shitty things because they are assholes on the internet. The community here is 100 times more vibrant and active then it ever was on gamesradar and yet the staff never seems to appreciate it.
TalkRadar. The core crew of Chris, Brett, Mikel, and Charlie were amazing. I didn't mind Hank as much as some. Tyler hit his stride when he stopped trying so hard. I stopped listening shortly after Hollander Cooper came on board. He was just...awful. I listened to their new podcast Laser Time for a while but it never felt the same. The high point of TDAR was Chris' story of some random dog shitting on it's own balls story and their 100th episode.
The guys are always mentioning the awesome stuff people do on twitter. At one point all of them changed their avatar to the Mega Man art someone did of them. Why do you think they get Dave, Vinny, and Drew together for every flight sim game? Why do you think they had a QL of Farming Sim 2012? Or how about Vinny and Jeff suddenly becoming the "sports guys?"
TNT isn't subscriber only.
Civ 2 on PS1 was a good example of how taxing even old strategy games were for the time. That thing was an interesting attempt, but ran so ridiculously slowly that it was more or less unplayable beyond a certain point, because the PS1 simply couldn't handle it. I seem to recall that it could take half an hour to an hour for an AI turn later in the game!
Videogames. The economy is a little bad however, I'm barely 4 hours in and I've been able to buy every weapon I wanted, with upgrades, and got most of the bags already.
There are loads more weapons that you can't buy yet. They're pricey.
- They are okay, but when you see the guy wrap his wrist and fix his thumb for the 20th time, they loose their appeal.
- It's been reduced, but it's sort of understandable, it's no longer the dry land of africa, lots of water in the plants of farcry2.
- I don't recall this happening I have set houses on fire with ammoboxs in them, don't remember seeing it blow up afterwards.
- Magic Repair-tool.
I don't think the fire stuff has been reduced, I've had larger areas in flames than I ever did in 2, and now you can have entire trees going up. It doesn't spread as easily though and the foliage isn't very 'destructible'.
BTW the game is fantastic.
It's partly because they use shitty HDNL/Yodel. Awful delivery company.
Make sure you complain to them about it - they usually give you a free month of prime if delivery is late. As such, I've currently got something like 8 months free.
I don't blame them for being jaded and cynical about lots of games... this has been a really shit year for big blockbuster games. Resuced by lots of really great smaller games.
