    AC Syndicate probably would be hailed as a "hell of a game" if this was the first game in several years but unfortunately it isn't.

  • EXTomar posted a message in the forum topic Anime & Cartoon Megathread IV: We Must Limbo To Send This Thread On Its Way. on the Off-Topic board

    Code Geass falls pray to a lot of this style of show where the "drama llama" is generated by absurd twists so often where characters flip flop "sides" so much that it is meaningless. It is literally ...

  • EXTomar posted a message in the forum topic Stephanie Meyer just got even worse. on the Off-Topic board

    One shouldn't take Twilight very seriously. One shouldn't take a gender flipped Twilight very seriously either. It has been something like 10 years anyway so the realization you may not like it be app...

    Microsoft does have this knack for picking up the "second rate" and "dying things".

  • EXTomar posted a message in the forum topic What horror movies are you planning to watch this month (Oct 2015)?. on the Off-Topic board

  • EXTomar posted a message in the forum topic Blizzard will announce the next WoW expansion at Gamescom. on the General Discussion board

    "WoD" felt like the producers started going in one direction and the suddenly something happened to make them abandon it and release it immediately. This is why it feels very incomplete and slapped t...

  • EXTomar posted a message in the forum topic Gawker vs. Hulk Hogan Sex Tape Suit Gets Weird-er. on the Off-Topic board

    The dangerous precedent is that any one could make the same claim ("This isn't there material, give it back!") and try to forced any news group to take down embarrassing or even incriminating video, a...

  • EXTomar posted a message in the forum topic Will you be early adopter of Windows 10?. on the PC board

    I will not upgrade any functioning Windows 7 machine to something else. But writing that, I would probably do Windows 10 if I was doing an entirely new build.

  • EXTomar posted a message in the forum topic Why Backwards Compatibility is Crucially Important. on the General Discussion board

    I am never sure where this adoration comes from. Yes, backwards compatibility is a nice check in the "Pro" column but is hardly a make or break feature. This is what Sony was counting on with the PS3 ...

  • EXTomar posted a message in the forum topic PC Games more broken than Console games?. on the General Discussion board

    No, what is really going on is that the "lead platform" often is more stable where the followup platforms tend to be unstable. Heck we see this even between consoles.

  • EXTomar posted a message in the forum topic LastWeekTonight about online harassment gets dislikes online. on the General Discussion board

  • EXTomar posted a message in the forum topic Poll: Do you have an SLI or Crossfire multi-GPU setup in your PC?. on the PC board

    I had a SLI configuration back when when the Nvidia 200 was bleeding edge. It was awesome when the game supported SLI but it did make the system more unstable if the game wasn't thoroughly tested for ...

  • EXTomar posted a message in the forum topic Super excited about backwards compatibility.. on the Xbox One board

    @bigsocratesJust keep the hands waving. :) There are plenty of games that don't have "XBox 360 servers" live any more. It is awesome that you can dig up Oblivion and play it but others especially thir...

  • EXTomar posted a message in the forum topic Super excited about backwards compatibility.. on the Xbox One board

    The issue isn't whether or not Microsoft can build a VM to run 360 games in the xbone (answer: unsurprisingly they can!) but how does do the online components work? XBox Live today isn't quite the sam...

  • EXTomar posted a message in the forum topic Is Anime immune to the type of criticism games receive?. on the Off-Topic board

    @golguin: One of the old issues is that Anime (and other tv/movie/video) is that it is passive while a Video Game is interactive. It isn't that Anime "gets a pass" but that there is a level and certai...

    @ripelivejamFor me it isn't about loving or hating Microsoft but wistfully wishing Silent Hill was bigger. Microsoft can and maybe still go through with it but it would be no more than "money pit vani...

  • EXTomar posted a message in the forum topic Rumour: MS is Buying Silent Hill(s), release by March 2016.. on the Silent Hills board

    I have a soft spot in my heart for Silent Hill but to believe that a new SH would be worth an exclusive is kind of "fanciful" because the audience just isn't that large enough to justify it.But strang...

  • EXTomar posted a message in the forum topic Porn and games addiction leading to 'masculinity crisis'. on the Off-Topic board

    I believe the issue is more that cultural attitudes about gender and sex promote this kind of thing. Make sex a stressful mystery that only "the beautiful manly man" can do and it is no wonder some ne...

  • EXTomar posted a message in the forum topic I expected more from Batman: Arkham Asylum. on the Batman: Arkham Asylum board

    This seems to sound like the same complaint about Deus Ex: Human Revolution. The game on the whole is awesome, one of the best of the era, but the boss fights were weak if not broken. For games like t...
