Ds4 and move on borderlands 2 vr both have free movement. Why do giantbomb(and other sites) continue to give out this damaging false information? How hard is it to goto the options or just Google it?. Other sites are shite and I've come to expect it but I thought giantbomb were better than that but it seems every time they get it wrong also.
I get your point but be easy on them. Its not their fault. The game is not telling them in a intuitve fashion how to set the controls. Its bad game design if guys who know how to play games for years and review them also have trouble with your game's default controls and cant find this weird hidden option to make the game just play well! Really ya gotta side with the crew. VR borderlands is just not what they wanna play when they think borderlands. Maybe a shooting gallery like they mentioned was more Borderlands feel. I enjoy VR but the crew just hasnt gotten that must have experience yet. They also knew about vr like 2 years before the public so the luster wore off. IDK maybe they will see your comment and try the setting but the teams too busy to research each game they play to ensure everything is to snuff. Game designers need to make things more apparent. Its the games fault so many outlets gave it bad scores cause they didnt make it more apparent the controls were fixable. Its not false information if they arent spreading false info on purpose. Otherwise everytime they were wrong youd need a fact check site like politics or something XD.

@depecheload: Ugh, that sucks. Hope he gets better soon. :(
This is clearly all subjective, but I liked the story in the Spider-Man DLC installments. Yuri goes over the edge in the second and third parts, tying in something else from the comics. They're all short stories, but I was up for more Spider-Man after finishing the main game, taking on different enemies and acquiring new suits. Diving into New Game + now.
Also, on the wrestling talk: the PPVs TNA was doing at their inception were weekly, not monthly. I think they were cheap, but they did this for pretty much two years until they focused entirely on Impact. Odd strategy to me, but this was in 2002-2004, wild west of online videos.
Love the wrestling talk guys, it's starting to become a real good time to be a wrestling fan.
man do people still not understand that kickstarters arent preorders? I have some sympathy for folks that back one and dont get they want, but you’re not purchasing a product. You’re making a donation and hoping they follow through. You should really know that before you sign up.

Get better soon, Bradley!
Dont know if this is or isnt allowed but does anyone have a hint when DBZ podcast is coming back if it was canceled or something. Surprised the most popular cast on the site gets shafted but idk.
They'll be finishing off Kai, at least.
Listen to the last 5 mins of the most recent ASG.
@frytup: Ok thank you. Must have missed that or its so old i forgot. Was waiting till the new year to hear a definitive date ha.
Wrestling talk from 35:00-45:00. 😖
"THEY SPENT THAT MONEY FOOL!" and/or "MONEY GO-WN!" should be a thing from now on.

@janman I love the name of the games in the corner!!! They frequently say the name of the game only once and then later it sounds cool and I gotta rewind to find the name. THANK YOU! its awesome, I like all the technical stuff that has been added since you came on board, keep it up!!
@topcyclist: I think the fact they know what they are doing and have played games for years means they should know to check settings. If games kept inverting look controls im sure they would be able to fix it (except vinny because hes weird). They also will go into settings to change resolution, fps ect.Giantbomb aren't the worst for it. Digital foundry still have that daft wipeout vr video up on youtube where they complain about the blinders as if there is no way to turn them off. They go into so much detail and settings and stuff in games and compare all the versions and tweak settings but cant turn one setting to off.

I get what your saying. I think its a time thing imo. Heard many youtubers break street dates just cause the crunch to get info to eyes. They could just all be super crunched or stressed to get the idea out to eyes with the influx of so much game coverage and first out first interest. It brings a habit of just popping a game in seeing a flaw and running with it and not trying to trouble shoot. I remember sitting for hours to get pc games 5 or 10 years ago to work and enjoying them...today that would be 10 minutes and a stamp of the game being at fault. Is it fair...idk. I just assume the game doesnt make whatever is an issue for so many outlets Ign, GB, etc too obvious since professionals cant find the fix easily.
Anyway you got fair points. Id love if these companies had time (digital foundary) to read their top comment atleast or get a cheap intern to tell them hey we were wrong on ____ so they can retract or review ideas. Hurts sales when big outlets say something is missing when its not. Looks at crying face of developer. Ha.
@m3rlin: It's strange how people like different things and not all content can or has to cater to everyone!
I agree, but also the issue is the kickstarters themselves do not make that clear. The marketing is usually misleading and promising the world (same with early access).
Granted I have only loosely followed Star Citizen, however I have never gotten the impression that everyone thinks the development/kickstarter is "gross", etc. Of the few people I have had conversations with about the game, their usual response is to wonder if the game can deliver.
Something that annoys me about DLC is when they're completely separated/removed from the main game, like their own menu option or something. Jeff said he didn't like how Bethesda DLCs were cordoned off into their own map zones, but at least you get to use your own save file with your own character progression and items and stuff. I just finished played Deus Ex Mankind Divided's DLCs, and both that game and Human Revolution do the thing where it's a separate menu item. (I actually have the HR DLC as a completely separate Steam library entry.) Which is super lame, because it means you have to relevel to get access to the same talents that are in the base game, for no good reason. And HR's DLC and one of the MD DLCs were very clearly just removed from the middle of game and slapped on as extra, which makes the task of having to relevel even more annoying because the whole time you can tell that you shouldn't have to. At least the other two MD DLCs felt like they stood on their own enough.
I don't know if the emailer was simply using it as an example, but current WoW doesn't belong anywhere near a Best Ongoing Game category. BfA has been disappointing at best.
They've got you covered
Here ya go
Man, I watched this whole video again, and it only convinced me that we need more 3DO. (The 3DO Need for Speed is gold.) Thanks for bringing it up.
A lot of stories seem to be from Polygon. Is Giant Bomb related somehow? I try to stay away from Polygon, it is full of agitation propaganda.
Ah if only they finished witcher 3 and did the DLC
I love Star Citizen, it's been a fun experience following a game's development so transparently and up close.
I've rarely seen people have such strong opinions about a topic yet handling so little information about it as with Star Citizen. Everyone just keeps saying it's sleazy and creepy but all they did was read a bunch of headlines how the game keeps getting more money and even more delayed. Here is the roadmap: https://robertsspaceindustries.com/roadmap/board/1-Star-Citizen/info . The devs track every single point of development of every feature that is being implemented and I have never seen someone develop a project so transparently as this. 8 years to make this game? It's a fucking miracle it would take so little time for something so ambitious.
