@ssully: It wasn't so much me blaming others for my problems, but more so of me just ranting to get rid of the built up tension after finals. I'm so sick of college and I probably would have graduated this year if it wasn't for my terrible first year.
I hear you man. I am going through some serious senioritis right now. Just finished my finals, but it was a fucking drag the whole way through.
I always felt like there was an abnormally high amount of amazing grades in these kinds of threads.
Either this is a smart community or the American education system has low standards. Depends on your mood.
My Dad was talking to a professor at State University of New York Albany who teaches chemistry over there. My Dad has worked in chemistry for over 30 years and he constantly complains about how little the new recruits know. And mind you he currently works for GE's power research division so they only take the best of the best.
Anyways, this chemistry professor was saying how he found a copy of a final he gave to his students 30 years ago around the time my Dad was in school. And he told my Dad that he didn't think his current students could have answered a single question on that exam. He wasn't even sure anyone who graduated from the school could answer a single question. He said that the students they got these days came in with so little knowledge that the university ends up spending their entire time teaching students things that 30 years ago they wouldn't have graduated middle school without knowing.
I am working towards a computer science degree and am baffled by the amount of people that are graduating with me, with an emphasis in programming mind you, that struggle with programming assignments that deviate slightly from texts. A big problem I think with them is the lack of general curiosity. People get their assignments, do them as quickly as possible and call it. They aren't doing anything in their free time, few have internships even though they are being handed out like candy. I dont get it at all.
A tad. I apologize for being a dick, that was a horrible response on my part. Just try not to blame others for your problems. It's a great way to make you feel better or justified, but a horrible way to find an actual solution.
When I first came to college I also tried my hand at computer programming. After the first class of my math class I freaked the fuck out and almost switched majors. Luckily I stumbled into the head of the Computer Science department and he talked me down. During my talk with him I blamed past teachers for my incompetence at math. He told me how that isn't the way to approach a problem like this, and advised me to take some lower math classes and work my way up. I am graduating with a Computer Science degree in May.
What about Ja....... Oh never mind.
Seriously. When the fuck is coming to Jamaica?
Some new screens leaked today. If you dig around online you should be able to find them. The lobby system they're putting place is almost identical to Socom 1 and 2. Brought back memories!
A link isn't that hard to include...

Go with God, duder.
He's going to need more than Providence for where he's going.

This shit is so damn awkward; I can't believe this was on TV. I dont know how much more I can take...
What I want to know is: why - with development costs rising as much as they are and causing all the games to have microtransactions, day one DLC and other nickel and diming horseshit - are more and more games broken-ass crap? I'm with Jeff on this one: Fuck video games!
Maybe these things that you mention are part of the reason. These games are usually big games that have multiple systems interacting with each other that all have to be planned, developed, implemented, and working in unison within a specific time frame that is usually much shorter then desired. As a software developer some of these games ambitions sound like a complete nightmare to make happen in the time the companies give.
Out of what I played? "Would you kindly?" would probably take it.
Although the end of Assassins Creed II was pretty wtf inducing as well. I don't know if that was really a twist, though, so much as just a mind-f*ck.
I dont think it was good mainly because it was literally out of no where. There is no context in the story or the direct build up in the game that indicates it was going anywhere near there. Doing something like that isn't difficult; in fact its REALLY easy.
Bioshock Infinite's ending worked so well because it was a twist that was earned. There was context and proper build up for all the crazy shit going on and you as the player had a few ideas as to where this was able to go.
Call me bitter but I think people making money for playing video games is dumb.
