Whenever someone complains about Windows 8 and they begin by talking about the start menu I can't help but tune out everything else they're saying because they've already proven themselves to be an idiot. Of course you're going to have trouble and complain if you don't bother to learn the most basic features of your new OS.

You press the Windows key, by the way.


I am of the mindset that Windows 8 is the best OS ever released by Microsoft, with Windows 8.1 being the cherry on top.

I think people who think it's bad are so fearful of any change, they're complaining about lack of start menu (as they know it) and ignoring everything that Windows 8 does better than 7 (which is most everything).

The start menu in those pictures looks a ittle bit cramped but ultimately fine...I mean it's pretty much how it is now compressed into a smaller like that would be admittance that you think the current version is also fine.

Thanks for the heads up dude. I'll keep an eye on this to see if any good offers come along.

The way they've handled The Wolf Among Us has really left a sour taste in my mouth. 3 months between episodes just isn't fair on the people who bought that game at the start, especially when you consider between Episode 1 and 2, there will have been 2 Steam sales.

Otherwise, my opinion is play the franchise you enjoy the most and ignore the ones you're indifferent on, to avoid being burnt out and hope they can keep the quality high, which I'm sure they will.

Heads up guys, there looks to be another server wipe coming when the devs fix how insanely overpowered crafted weapons have become.

Persona 4.

Persona 3 had too many cliches (Yukari the typical high school girl, Junpei the pervy comedy relief, Mitsuru the perfectionist). The story was cliche as well. At least in Persona 4 the characters felt a bit less cliche, and thus more relatable.

I'll take the cliché characters of 3 over the insanely over the top anime characters of 4 every time. Them cast of 3 being so grounded made them far more relate able than 4 (to me at least.) "I'm a guy struggling with sexuality but there's this boy I like but oh wait it turns out he's a girl pretending to be a boy!" & "I'm a magical teddy bear that turns into the most beautiful Arian boy you'll ever see!" never quite gelled with me personally. To be fair, I'm generalising the character's whole motives but no more so than you with the examples you gave.

Also while Persona 3 had some good social links, it suffered from some incredibly basic, boring ones as well (such as the Bookstore)

Woah. The bookstore couple was a no nonsense story of dealing the loss of your child. It wasn't the flashiest but it had one of the better moral tales to it.

I think I'm going to get it, just need to find a friend who will be into at as much as me to justify the $25 price tag. I am really really hyped for it myself however.

@samstrife: Sounds great to me. I ran around did all the killing and mining etc...She really enjoyed the building and furnishing.

It'll probably be more rewarding for you then because you can find some pretty awesome stuff whilst exploring. "Here honey, I found this already opened Avian Sarcophagus for the house!"

So is this game terrerria like? I am in if my girlfriend will enjoy building my houses etc.

Yeah, it's inspired heavily by Terraria. Building houses (whilst less important mechanically) is way easier and more fun than in Terraria though and if you explore a lot, you can find an awful lot of cool things to furnish the place with.

Is there a GB server or anything up right now? I just got on by myself

If you hop n into the Giant Bomb Gaming Hub mumble server, we play in the evening.

The game's great! There's obvious early access tropes that will get ironed out in time but as a starting point, it's already leagues beyond OG Terraria.

That being said, I'm pretty certain I'll play it so much that by the time it hits version 1.0 (and all the super cool, announced features are in it) I'll have played way too much and be fed up of it >.<

Me and some duders on a server last night, one guy found an accordion and started playing some Bach!
