1st party games aren't as bad as 3rd party games (sports title, in particular).

I don't see much non-Klepek material. DOTA 2 couldn't possibly interest me less, so Brad's infatuation is just tedious to me.
UPS and FedEx both use USPS for some deliveries. My company uses FedEx frequently and a lot of the shipments go through the USPS system at some point.
@Soap said:Well, FFXIII is literally the worst game ever about that particular thing. ACIII isn't as bad, but its sure as hell secured a number 2 spot. God. This game. Half the introduction could have been cut in half and nothing in the story would have changed.
however, the level of hand holding is hitting Final Fantasy XIII levels.
I think you need to go play FFXIII again... AC3 is not that bad ;)
If I play another "Walk slowly with this guy while he espouses dialogue" things, I'll throw my controller through the screen. It combined the worst parts of cutscenes with the bad parts of pointlessly wandering around. It does begin to open up...numerous hours later. But a game cannot be good if the first several hours are just not good.
I'm not getting glitches --- but I find the storyline unbelievably tedious and the lack of freedom for the first several hours is irritating. I get that this might be the most widely played of the Assassin's Creed series...however, the level of hand holding is hitting Final Fantasy XIII levels.
Speaking to GameSpot, Ross and Wolfkill said there is zero tolerance for Xbox Live players who are found to be making sexist or discriminatory comments against others, with a lifetime ban from the network as penalty.
"This is behaviour that is offensive and completely unacceptable. I'd like to think most of our Xbox Live players don't support this kind of behaviour."
I think if MS were serious about this, they would do a better job of policing xbox live. Right now it's a joke, and I can't stand to play without my voice chat set to friends only. Is there anything stopping MS from hiring somewhere between 20 to 100 people who get to play videogames all day and police the service? To prevent corruption, they could record chat and require proof before they take action. I know MS does keep an eye on things a bit, but it's clearly not enough, given the current ease of finding racism, homophobia, or other forms of hate on Xbox Live.
I also think lifetime bans for a paid service like this are ridiculous. Turning off your voice chat for a month or so would be much more appropriate, with more extreme punishments for future offenses.
There are how many millions of users of XBL at any time? Expecting them to hear everything said at all times in all sessions is a bit much.
Does anyone else ever get PMs from people advertising video game writing jobs? About once a month or so I get a message from someone claiming that they've read my stuff on the site and would like me to apply for a (usually non-paying) position. Typically they're sites I've never heard of, although they look somewhat legitimate (i.e. not a total scam).
Has anyone ever checked one of these out? I would assume that if you want a real job writing gaming reviews and analysis, it's a bit tougher than getting a random message from some unknown user on GB. Maybe someone who is an actual paid writer could comment?
A few. I don't have the time to do it.
