Generally i'm not sure that artists and graphic designers are clamouring to undermine the value of their time by doing free work for random people on the internet.

But hey good luck I guess you might get lucky.

I think maybe if you threw in the possibility of like, offering a gifted steam game or something that could potentially be more tasteful than saying "hey artists do this work for free for me"

@sjqpersonal: Thanks for the impressions! I'm sort of in the same frame of mind on this so I might pick it up after all.

@rowr: @flipperdesert: Turn off the settings off and play it like it's real life, that's what I say.

I like your style.

    We just knew we wanted to get something related to recent releases up today for people. Borderlands QL up soon, too.

    We’re running this week’s Unprofessional Friday as a free archive since it deals entirely with the PlayStation TV. Not a regular show.

I would lean towards a new mobo, since I'm taking a guess and assuming that's a pretty decent processor (I have the 3770K).

But really whatever is more cost effective so long as you can get a decent processor for 2011. Last I checked 1150 Mobo's were more cost effective.

Worth mentioning since it's come up that this is on sale on steam for like $2.50

Or bundled with the game for $6.45

I just grabbed the DLC, haven't tried it out yet. To be honest I still feel like i've got a fair bit to uncover in the vanilla. Great game though if not a bit of a time investment for a rogue like. It's good to fire up once in a while, I find it a bit too stressful to play in anything but short bursts - though leaving a saved game can make it difficult to come back to later and know what the hell is going on.

I'm not very sold on this idea of having to deal with the rain, it kind of just sounds like more work. But i guess people who have mastered this game need some more challenge probably.

I saw they are working on implementing co op which seems pretty rad.

Wait so what is this?

Screen capture mode on consoles I'm guessing?

If so that's cool, I know the vita does this.

I've definitely become pretty accustomed to snapping screenshots in video games through steam in recent years, it's amazing how some of the action shots come out as a still. It's almost a bit of a mini game trying to capture shots with the best composition.

Far Cry is probably the easy winner here for it's time though i'm not sure everyone would qualify it as open world though it did basically invent the format for fps.

I'd vote Just cause 2 otherwise.

Skyrim was quite amazing in parts as well considering how hamstrung it was graphically when released, the post processing really did some work.

Are you enjoying it so far? I've wanted to get it but been seriously on the fence considering how little has changed at first glance.

Yeh how is it?

Reviews were not great i noticed, though steam user reviews seem mostly positive.

I understand it's a bit of a stop gap release for the bigger fancier next gen 2015 edition?

"Player has to ask himself what can push any human being to mass-murder. We provoke this question using new Unreal Engine 4, pushing its physics (or rather PhysX) systems to the limits and trying to make the visuals as good as possible."

I found this statement in particular to be hilarious for some reason.

This kind of smacks of 12 year old. It's like an essay written in junior high, trying to pretend something has depth by vaguely alluding, but actually having nothing worthwhile to say.

I'm definitely not sick of seeing this thread every month.

It will definitely never get old.

Definitely.
