I had sent this as a tip and also figured it would have already popped up by now but maybe it's not as important as I had thought to everyone (IE non achievement whores) I really have nothing to add to the story he does a pretty good job at summing it up.

Now what are we going to do for our forum sigs?!?! RIP.









Yep, looks like it has been delayed... AGAIN! This game is never coming out people! It's all an elaborate hoax. also, forza.

"We can confirm that Gran Turismo 5 will not be available this November 2nd, but the game’s release will be coming this holiday season.


We sincerely apologize to GT fans for the delay, however, creator Kazunori Yamauchi and the team at Polyphony Digital want to make certain they are creating the perfect racing experience, and we are confident that this ambitious game will exceed expectations when it launches.

We’ll have more information for you in the near future."

So after all this review controversy (for the record, AC2 and FF13 deserve better scores) and after reading Jim's post about being a reviewer I got to thinking... what games would I be called a troll for if I had to review them? The most recent that comes to mind is Dragonage Origins. I never really read much about the game but I kept hearing how good it was from everyone so I got it for the PC. I had looked at some of the screenshots and got a little excited thinking it was going to be an oblivion type game... boy was I wrong!

So I start playing and when I am first talking to my dad in the beginning I am thinking "Oh, this is kinda cool all the different conversation options." I was taking my time to read all the options and try and pick what I would say in real life. That lasted for about 10-15 minutes until I realized that pretty much every character had a huge conversation and I really just stopped caring what everyone had to say. The main part that came to mind was in the beginning when I was talking to my brother with his wife and kid. My brother starts talking about how hes going off to war and asking if i was gonna take care of his kid or something and then the little kid starts talking to you I mean who really cares? Is what I say to this little kid going to change any part of the game? I highly doubt it. I found myself just quickly clicking the first answer in every convo trying to get to some actual gameplay (which I didn't like at all btw.) It just seems really pointless to me to have meaningful conversations with these virtual people in a game where the outcome is more or less fixed no matter what you say. Now just as a disclaimer, I only played about an hour of this game and to be fair I am sure later on your choices in conversation actually do have SOME sort of outcome but from what I saw none of it really mattered. Take this one for example:



Why does it matter what one you pick? They are all no! Just pick one and get it over with! It's so pointless!

So in short I really did not like this game at all even though everyone else lost their shit over it. I am pretty sure I would have gotten lots of angry messages and the like just like Jim does with every one of his reviews. What games would you have gotten hate messages over if you had reviewed them?

p.s. I also hated mass effect.. just too lazy to bitch about that one too.

Cus I just got my first nuke in COD (PC) :)



I had never really cared about nuke until I actually got enough kills and didn't have it equipped. I used to have UAV, Harrier, and Pave low and was happy with that. But now I changed it to Harrier, Chopper Gunner, and Nuke. Pretty satisfying.. although very scary when you get to around 23-24 kills. Oh yeah did I mention I am a knifer? (marathon,lightweight, commando) So I would like to say this is pretty impressive. inb4 knife is no skill. It is. Don't get me started.

Anyways what kinda kill streaks do you guys use? Any other knifers around here?

Good move guys!











hey guys just read this and though it was pretty ridiculous. Apparently in order to play Command and Conquer 4 you have to be connected to the internet at all times.... even for single player.

FTA:
"As of right now, you need to be online all the time to play C&C 4. This is primarily due to our 'player progression' feature so everything can be tracked. C&C 4 is not an MMO in the sense of World of Warcraft, but conceptually it has similar principles for being online all the time," Community Leader APOC wrote. No matter what mode you're playing, no matter what you're doing, if you want to play Command and Conquer 4, you're going to need to have a working Internet connection.

Good ole EA for ya! They even have the nerve to say that this game is shipping with no DRM protection.
Sucks to be a laptop user.
