@Ghibli That doesn't seem like Blizzard's style at all. I could maybe see little narrative single player expansions in the game, but I doubt it'll be a series of full single player titles by any means.

Fan attempts to pre-order Fallout 4 with bottle caps

Steve2911

3 years ago

It's a cool idea, but telling the press and saying he hopes Bethesda reacts was a terrible idea.

If it just turned up at Bethesda and they tweeted/talked about it, then it might have raised some smiles over there and they might have given him the game. Now they'll probably ignore it.

@VideoGameAddict25 Not really. I got 4 for the pirate antics, but quite a lot of people were sick to death of the AC formula after they released AC2 for the third time.

After enjoying AC4 for a total of 10 hours before realising that it's still the same shit underneath it all, I'm officially done with this series. And basically any Ubisoft sandbox series for that matter.

Sega agrees to $1.25m settlement in Aliens: Colonial Marines case

@dipje I definitely think there's enough blame to go around. Both companies dealt with it in a fucking shady way. Gearbox lied, Gearbox promoted, Gearbox stuck their fingers in their ears and blamed everyone else. To call them innocent in the whole affair is just irresponsible.

@ToiletDuck I wouldn't call purchasers who aren't completely in the know on games 'stupid'. Millions of people love the Alien series and don't really give a shit about following the overall ins and outs of development or release of a game. They walk into a shop, see that there's a new Aliens game and buy it.

Never blame the consumer for the dodgy actions of a publisher or developer. That way madness lies.

@null Yeah Sega didn't really do their job properly in releasing a shoddy product, but you could argue that they didn't have much choice. They were utter fucked by what was essentially a con, and had sunk half a decade and huge sums of money into the project.

They couldn't afford to just not release it. Scrapping it would have been the right thing to do, but it's at least understandable that they thought that they couldn't.

Meanwhile, it looks like the long-awaited patch 2.0.1 is about to hit Diablo 3. The live servers are currently down until 11am PST, which is 7pm UK time. The patch adds Loot 2.0 among many other new features.
This got me excited, but the servers are still up and it's still 1.0.8. Is it only down in the US?

@null The physical pre=order comes with the bonusses too. You get them as long as you register your code within the first week of release, so you don't even have to get it day 1. You can wait for reviews and go for the cheapest price.

How Super 3D Noah's Ark came to be reprinted on SNES in 2014

"I have had comments from 'the worst game ever' to 'finally, a game the whole family can play'."

The problem is that the latter comments come from the extremely ill-informed, who have no idea that the people they're paying are massive, talentless rip-off merchants, or that there exists a massive variety of family games that are actually worth your time.

Porting to smartphones would be a great way to make some quick cash from some low-quality products, which would inevitably damage the brand that Nintendo's spent decades carefully fostering.

It's a short term solution to a short term problem, but it'll create a long term disaster. This is a wise position to take and, even though I've not been a fan of many Nintendo games or consoles as of late, I respect the hell out of it.

This isn't a season pass at all, that's just the Steam system being used to distribute it. You get the full game for the base price, but the rest will be a free update.

Anyway, I'm playing it right now and it's bloody great. Charm's oozing from every orifice.

The game's wonderful, but I would HATE for any incentivised Facebook integration. That sort of thing kills my enthusiasm for a game completely, and it just feels like an elaborate scam.

Raids and more stats would be cool though.

@Rife, saying 'I win a lot as Priest' carries as much weight as 'I win more when I have my eyes open'. Your point stands though.
