@mooseymcman: Indeed they do. Dragon Age Origins is also prob like my 2nd favorite game ever? So, if anything has a chance to pull me a way its Dragon Age.

I dunno I'm down with the idea of FFX-2 and honestly If FFXIV hadn't come along on PS4 when It did I'd prob have spent a lot of time completing both. I've only ever played like the first 5 minutes of it though so can't really judge. I AM totally down with the Dress Sphere and overall Charlies Angels vibe though.

Its a pretty game but I really really don't like the character creator nor the art direction. Like I dunno It seems like a really really solid game and part of me really WANTS to care and I certainly don't blame other people for being desperately in love with it but Its just not hitting me in my proverbial gaming G-spot.

I'm really at a loss because I play it and I'll most likely play some more soonish and I don't see anything really wrong with it yet its just not hooking me.

The problem is that you are hopelessly addicted to FFXIV and nothing is going to do it for you like that game does until you stop playing it and break your addiction.

Dunno, still faily keen on trying out Dragon Age later this year. But yeah, that sure does play a role in it.

@sparky_buzzsaw: But I dunno isn't it at least the tinyest bit of breath of fresh air that this game in a lot of areas is just scrapping a lot of the conventions of modern day shooters? I think that right there was one of the brought up points that caught my eye. I don't believe they have to be going for a "nostalgia romp" as much as they looked at Doom and said what made doom great? It was being aggressive being the father of the twitch shooter and constantly pushing forward and making you constantly feel like a bad ass. Things like the health packs might have been a result of early game design not knowing exactly how to solve design problems but that "problem" turned into a legitimate design in its own right. I might not be for everyone but I think this type of shooter has been missing from the market for a long while and I'm looking forward to seeing it in motion.

I think for the most part I'm usually level headed but I'll be the first one to admit there are a few things that still turn me into a huge idiot for no real reason. I dunno I think sometimes it might be way easier to just resort to shitlord tactics simply because on the internet you're missing so many other facets of human communication like hearing someone's tone or reading their face that so much is lost in translation that it gets way easier just to be a snarky dick instead of earnestly trying to communicate like a level headed person especially when you're not staring a flesh and blood person in the face when you type something.

I do have a personal rule though that I try to never say anything on the internet that I wouldn't say to someones face. There are many times where I'll have a huge ranting post written out and before I hit submit I just think " Well shit what is this really going to accomplish?" then just scrap it. You've got some points. I think everyone just needs to take time enough to think sometimes what a post will accomplish. I know I've mangled some relationships with online friends with how I've acted before and I regret that. I do have to say I'll keep being proud to be a member of this community though. Those that spend more time here know that there are still a ton of great dudes and ladies here. We've had several people either come out or discuss their gender identity issues on the fourms and the response has always been positive. So I know the core of this community is in the right place.

If we want to continue to clean this place up the best place to start is with ourselves. And godspeed @rorie you're a goddamn saint for putting up with everything for the last several weeks. Whatever they are paying you it isn't fucking enough.

Yikes.

I just find the tone of patrick's article amusing. Its rare that we ever seen Patrick flat out be "Hey fuck you guy" even if it is to a fictional character in a game.

I swear to god talk of Dan's eating habits are giving me nothing but stress each time they talk about it.
