@mhunterjr I guess it's just a matter of perspective, a lot of people have been complaining lately about the fact that MS have these services behind a pay wall, while other consoles like the PS4 don't have that. You have made your choice and seem to be happy with it so more power to you, I guess I would fell ripped off, but there is no need to argue about this any further, happy gaming man :)

@mhunterjr I know that you can't access the same premium service simultaneously on the PC either. All I am saying is that everyone with their own PC, can access those services without the yearly fee to Microsoft, plus the Netflix fees etc. those services don't become free just because you have a gold membership. So no, it's not generous.

@mhunterjr You are missing the point, on the PC there is no yearly fee to access those services, including multiplayer. So no, MS is not generous at all. You just believe in their marketing.

@mhunterjr I guess the answer is PC, free multiplayer, including web browser of your choice, Skype, Netflix etc. Don't for a second think that you can stream two different movies on Xbox One at the same time. So no, I don't think it's generous.

@JackB This is kinda funny, to make it work, the main GOLD member have to be logged into the secondary console ie not where his account actually resides. While his brother for example has to be logged in on GOLD members main console. I guess it's a workaround that way, but hardly straight forward.

EDIT: TBH it's not very clear, we'll see how it will truly work once it's launched.

Leisure Suit Larry Reloaded review

@darkmorgado It's only a remake with a new coat of paint, I don't remember them making promises to bring the jokes up to year 2013 standards. That would have alienated the original fan base and it would not have been a remake anymore.

This game was definitely given to the wrong reviewer, the game is really old with a new coat of paint. Back in the days things were not nearly as PC as today, and obviously this game was made mostly for men and a few women who might enjoy these kind of jokes etc. I think the reviewer should have been honest enough to not write it.

Excellent article.

I don't think it will take off when your average person can't even be bothered to put on a pair of 3D glasses. I also wonder if this is just too close to reality in one way, but in the end only offers 1% of what we expect reality to be. Are these problems solvable? I don't think so, until we get the holodeck, now that is Virtual Reality.

Or maybe, Tomb Raider was just too violent and too little exploration. Thats why I didn't buy it. I've seen a growing trend where games are just becoming more and more violent, and I think people had enough, and are voting with their wallets.

Also, lets not forget the nickel and diming with online passes, season passes, unbalanced pre-order bonuses from different retailers etc. I think there is more to this story than "teh grafics" is not good enough.

It depends on how its handled, In TF2 it's only cosmetic items that cost, then it doesn't matter how much, one can just ignore it.

EA on the other hand charges for things that break game play, like the Real Racing 3 implementation, you can't even play the game for an hour straight without paying real money.

EA Warhammer spin-off Wrath of Heroes shuts down next month

Bigmac1910

@Deadite It has been in beta forever(at least a year I think), and they have been charging money for characters and in game items as well.

But the biggest problem was greed, p2w items and lack of balance. And the fact that they didn't listen to the players on top of that is the reason for the shutdown.

EDIT: It was actually kinda fun, but the execution was terrible.

"I managed to complete the game without spending any extra and never felt like I'd been held back, but by the same token there were plenty of moments where I fell just short of what was needed."

LOL! Really? Are you guys trying to cater to the ultra casuals who has never pressed a button on a controller in their lives? Or did you just forget to actually BALANCE your game properly.

Splinter Cell Blacklist's torture scene is cut

Bigmac1910

5 years ago

@jamie243 Well, this argument can go on forever. The fact is, there is always an acceptable and non-acceptable limit to everything in life (incl. what kind of video games we play), which society and personal morals decide.

Anyway, I don't think we will be able to convince each other of our personal opinions. So I'll stop here, just continue to have fun playing games. :)

@jamie243

1. I forgot to mention that humans have always killed other humans if their survival depended on it. Like a Call of Duty etc.

2. Certain kind of games while fictional in story/setting etc. (like splinter cell), are ALWAYS inspired by reality.

3. The reason why people usually don't want to deal with the subject of torture, is because an unbalanced person can flip and make another person suffer real easily with only a kitchen knife etc.

4. Stop reaching, I never said I have all the answers, but you are actively trying to convince me that torture is ok in games, just as long as you know it's not real.

And finally, there is just one thing I don't understand, why do you want to see a graphic torture scene with blood and gore while a character is suffering? I can only guess that for you killing is not good enough, you have to see someone suffering first before they die. All this is only in game of course, not in real life, because you know the difference.
