Empire: Total War. I was really excited for this game and that style of strategy. Broken game. Even after several patches its in a worse state than where it started.

Civilization 5: Streamlined in too many ways, not that fun to play. Still play Civ4 and love it.

I've heard about the hawk thing, but I never saw it before, thanks for that. My favorite aspect was just the isolation and quietness the game had. The game used its visuals and music well to add in a sense of mystery, for example when you're going near a colossus lair and snippet like 'Green Hills' or 'Lakeside'. It was a good game to play alone and mull over.

Plot wise, it is a fantastic game. The combat is absolutely terrible and frustrating. Being a wizard is good in that its the only class that rewards you for wisdom/intelligence, which enhances the game and dialogue options. Other than that, the Wizard is probably the most frustrating class in the game; you can only cast spells once a day, which means you need to rest to actually do anything. Sadly, this is not balanced in combat, and most of the spells are crap anyway.

It would be nice if the game got tweaked or remade, just for the combat alone.

I spared him because the damage was done and his history with Geralt made it seem it was a bad idea. I also did the Roche path, and him saving Triss for me also added into the decision.

I think much of the muck got brought in from other locations in the net that wanted to turn the discussion into yet another battleground. That said, these sorts of conversations happen here often and I understand that it gets a bit tiring when neither side gives an inch; at times arguments do need to be toned down, but that doesn't mean that discussion should be stopped or barred. As they say, nothing is sacred or everything is.

Having spent alot of time on gaming forums/communities, I will say GB is better than most. All we have to do is be excellent to each other.

Another She-Hulk? I hope they get chewed out for the rather lazy attempt at creating diversity. How about coming up with new original characters (not that Thor was original or anything)

@madman356647: It is the internet version of 'The Man on The Street'. I'd be more interested people in the industry's reactions, but they'd probably have to tow the line on this issue. Unless they're a cool studio like CDRP.

Driscoll, Connolly, Leary, Darmody, Thompson, Shay or Shea. And so on.

Neither DLC sounds like it is particularly long and worth a pre-order. Creative Assembly DLC has gone a little crazy, like for Fall of the Samurai (Shogun 2) the DLC game had pre-order DLC from specific retailers. I'm pretty sick of it this shit.

Starting this generation off with shooters like Wolfenstein sounds pretty great, but Wolfenstein The New Order is less like a classic shooter and more like a modern shooter that implements some of the things that made classic shooters great. I'm definitely all for more shooters like Wolfenstein The New Order, as it's one of the best modern shooters I can name, but I don't think it's particularly innovative. Just very, very well put-together.

I agree. I find it difficult to identify specifically what made it more refreshing and engaging, but I really enjoyed it.

Yeah you are totally spot on with that. New Order was a great game to play.

I haven't bought a COD since 4, but having played some of them at friend's homes it seems that I'm not missing much. I haven't bought an FPS like that in a long while. The only game of that variety that I play consistently is Red Orchestra 2/Rising Storm, which is more team oriented. That game has you focus more on objectives than your personal KDR, which makes those moments where you repulse an attack way more satisfying.
