It's the reason I haven't played Dust: An Elysian Tale, although maybe it's because I think the anime-furry aesthetic is not good with the whole 'genocide' storyline.
Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters Melee
+ It's a Godzilla game!
- Man...that box art.
So perfect. We need people like that in the industry. NOW!
We need less assholes on the internet as well. Fish coped a pretty bad rep for a whole lot of nothing
Fish copped a whole lot of flack for his reaction to assholes. Yes they were assholes, yes what they were saying was probably unfair/over the line/offensive/whatever, but Fish should probably understand that this is the fucking internet. That was my criticism of him, that he didn't change his reaction to the medium, it's his poor public management skills I take issue with, which when you're a public figure like he is, even in our little world of vidyagames, you need to have in order to not look like a dick, even if it isn't you're fault or your 'reaction' is warranted.
Ugh, I bet we won't get anything like those deals in Australia, and I'm planning on building a computer this holidays.
I've gotten back into Warcraft lately and the Mists of Pandaria expansion is god damn fantastic. I suppose I can't really speak for the end-game raiding, but the new starting zones and 85-90 leveling content are pretty great. The economy seems pretty broken, though. Gold inflation is so massive that if you're starting a character on a new server, it's going to be impossible to buy anything useful from the auction house because everything's so expensive.
Off-topic, but I was just thinking about how difficult that is to correct from an economic perspective, because unlike something like EVE, the currency is dropped (and essentially made) from enemies which constantly respawn (essentially the same as if they printed money). They can't really decrease the amount of money dropped by mobs because that would fuck starting players who now even have less money in an economy that hasn't yet adjusted (and still doesn't solve the fundamental problem). I guess the only solution is if they brought in several new crafting professions, and possibly something else to spend money on which injects money back into the system rather than just spreading it among the players. I guess that's what the houses and farms thing is about, or they could also just increase the Auction House cut on purchases over X amount.
I think that the PS4 will be the winner of the next gen, the Xbox One makes me cringe.
I think at the moment, that's because a large part of most gaming communities have been ripping apart Microsoft at every given opportunity (justified in some situations, but still). It's exactly what we saw happen to Sony with the launch of the PS3 and it forced them to completely turn around to rethink the situation and arguably to eventually surpass the 360. Hedging your bets before the new systems have even launched seems a little premature.
Personally, I think Nintendo is going to benefit from this the most. The new systems are expensive, will undoubtedly have technical problems at launch and any really big "killer app" games are likely a good year or two away at least. Meanwhile, the Wii U is getting cheaper and is finally building up a library of games worth playing. Unless all you want is fancy new tech (in which case, go buy a PC), I really see no reason for anyone to buy a new system at launch.
I don't think the vitriol was ever as strong against Sony as it has been against Microsoft, and to a large extent it wasn't as mainstream (eg: the Jimmy Kemmel thing with the Xbox), and the two platforms didn't come out at the same time. The PS3's saving grace was its raw power, which meant that later in the generation, you had games like Uncharted and the Last of Us utilising the PS3's power, while the Xbox was still to some extent 'stuck' (of course, as you pointed out, if you want graphics power, buy a PC, but this reasoning doesn't apply to a lot of Sony games, which really are exclusive to its console, unlike a lot of Xbox games). Given the Xbox One can't rely on graphics power to save it late in the game, I think Microsoft's only chance at a late-gen hail mary will be, of all things, the Kinect, providing they're willing to utilise it properly, which so far, doesn't seem like the case.
As to Nintendo, while Nintendo's main strength is in its games rather than consoles, it doesn't really share the same market as the other two consoles. People who like Nintendo games buy Nintendo consoles, while other gamers, when looking at which console to buy, are not going to have the WiiU in their sights. At the end of the day, they might have the WiiU and one of the other major consoles, but it isn't like anyone is tossing up between a PS4 and a WiiU.
Is this viral marketing for a 90's cop show, like The Office but for cops? Because this surely can't be real...can it?
If you look at the names of the cops under 'Command Staff'....it might be.
Really this is awesome in the way that a police website kind of shouldn't be, awesome yeah, but probably not the most informative. Also, yeah this looks awesome, but when we hear that a bunch of Cookeville cops have been done for using excessive force...this site is gonna look less cool.
Firefly and Deadwood, as well as The Fades (although I can kind of see why it wasn't renewed), and the Australian show Crownies.
I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for non-Horror movies that would still work as 'Halloween' movies? I was thinking about this recently, and I realised that the Wizard of Oz makes an awesome Halloween movie despite not being horror, and I bet there are others also work.
