One example was quoted in this very thread. Racism aside, you speak in terms about the president that other people do not use when trying to have a serious conversation.

Eco, now that you've been run out of both OO and GT (partially), for the same behavior, you may just want to consider that the issue is not that anyone is trying to censor you, but we don't appreciate the way that you express your views and take steps to protect the character of our community.

The people on this board are capable of reading the news and you should deduce that they choose to make their decisions based on multiple factors, not just one poll that they don't participate in and that you seem so enamored of.

Rip and MSDuncan tend to have very different political views than many here yet they still manage to be able to get along on both boards.

Having people respond negatively to things you say is not censorship, it is simply the result of expressing yourself in the way you do. If you want to use the language you do there are outlets where you can do so comfortably. Stormfront, for example.

I did my update and then put my console in sleep mode. I'm kind of afraid to turn it back on. I'll keep playing Sunset Overdrive and wait for the patch smile

I would also love it if they got rid of the ammo.  Nothing worse than being out of ammo for the gun(s) that are effective against the type of enemies you're fighting and having to shoot nonstop records at humans that barely take notice.  It's not fun to run out of ammo, ever, and for a game that should be much more about over-the-top action I don't want to have to worry about that.  


It's really a minor variation on the Ratchet and Clank and Resistance weapon wheel systems. You're required to learn what the weapons do so you can switch off when needed. There's actually a lot of ammo around in the white boxes.

How on earth does the Xbox not have a screenshot function? Even taking one shot from a video?

Oh, I should mention there are two additional collectibles that get introduced that have no purpose (as far as I can tell) other than giving an  achievement. To that I give a "shame on you" to Insomniac.

I wonder if this is going to be like an MMO expansion where playing the new solo content gets you better gear than doing the original raid content.

Having a lot of fun. The humor definitely leans to the juvenile side, but that doesn't mean I'm not laughing smile Really like the female VA.

Key to the game is really to keep moving and never touch the ground if you don't have to. Collectibles don't offer any challenge, which is a negative, but there is at least a reason to get them other than achievements. Between overdrives, amps and weapons you can also tailor your buffs to your play style, which is nice. Weapons also have strengths and weaknesses against enemies, so you are required to switch up.

This is about as close to a 3d platformer we get these days so I am predisposed to like the game. On the other hand, it is yet another open world game.

I played one round of the co-op. Probably would be more fun with friends.

Absolutely terrible loss by Dallas after the gift they got from Arizona, and a division loss to boot. Hopefully Romo is OK.

The good news is that Washington might not win many more games this season so this one division loss shouldn't hurt.

It's not about Washington, it's about Philadelphia and any tie breakers.

If I could I would be playing Alpha Protocol, Bayonetta and Evil Within.

How does it work? So if your PC doesn't normally perform as well at 1440p it will perform well now? Or it literally just allows you to run at higher resolutions if your monitor doesn't support it?

It's a terrible thing. A huge number of people were trolled and continue to be trolled. The threats are embarrassing, the advertising bans are embarrassing, the ethics conversation is embarrassing. Anyone who actually understands how this started and what it's become should rightfully think that both sides, the 4chan trolls and the hashtaggers who continue to think this is a real issue, are a bunch of tools.
 I think you are misusing both sides there, as the trolls and hashtaggers are on the same side.

Not exactly. The trolls started the whole thing. The overwhelming majority of people using the hashtag are the ones who were fooled by the trolls into thinking it was a real thing. That includes #gamergate and the #notyourshield tag which got a lot of use as well.

They are still essentially allied though and are on the same side, the other side would be the so called SJWs, along with female game developers and journalists.


Sorry, I didn't mean opposing sides, just the segment acting in bad faith and the segment who believes that gamergate is some real thing.

Either Rod Marinelli is some kind of miracle worker or the Cowboys D is going to come crashing down to earth at some point.

Ugh, that's so ghetto (the widescreen thing).

I'm glad you seem to be enjoying it, Teggy. I'll continue pressing onward.

I could totally see people not being into it, especially the trial and error stuff and some of the jankiness. However, it's what I was expecting and the type of game I was in the mood for.
32  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XB1/360/PS3/PS4/PC]The Evil Within on: October 15, 2014, 05:06:03 PM
The whole game. Rumor is it was done to help with framerate. They say things are supposed to show up in there but I haven't seen anything. Maybe subtitles, but I'm not playing with subtitles.

In chapter 5 and the game is getting creepier and creepier. Definitely a lot of trial and error here, but I'm just rolling with it. Kind of funny after you figure out an encounter you'll get a loading screen message that would have been very helpful before that encounter. Also have come up against some bugginess at checkpoints, one that basically got me past one tough situation by accident.

And holy crap (chapter 4 enemy spoiler)
Spoiler for Hiden:
enemies with invisibility powers!

I went ahead a preordered with a pro controller. We'll see how I do.
Even if the game doesn't click with you, that pro controller will be awesome.  I love mine.  Very comfortable and incredibly long battery life between charges.  My PS4 controllers drain so fast compared to the pro controller.   

I honestly don't like the stick above the buttons on the gamepad, so I'm a little worried about how the pro controller will feel. But I figure it will be better for this type of game than than the gamepad.

Played the first 2 chapters and am liking it so far. Definitely has that Resident Evil 4 feel - creepy, but not too scary, with some dodgy voice acting. It relies a lot more on stealth though and has a character upgrade system in addition to weapon upgrades.

Ammo is very scarce, so it definitely looks to be more of a true survival horror game. I died quite a few times getting the hang of things and there does seem to be a bit of trial and error involved. If you get in a bad situation, you're probably going to die.

Part of me is just glad to not be playing an open world game for the first time in a while.

I want this deal for digital editions - I have no interest in swapping MCC in and out - it will be played for quite some time, and likely never traded in.

I just don't get it.

If you buy 3 games digitally between September 4 and Nov. 30th you'll get 20K points. Not as good, but something.

For a company trying so hard to transition to digital, though, it doesn't make a ton of sense. It's probably better margins for what they sell via Amazon at least.

Outplayed and outlasted.  Romo did a hell of a job and didn't blow it.  Too bad he seems to have infected Russell with a late-game choke.  

The game shouldn't have been anywhere near that close. Seahawks should have had max 6 points if not for the bonehead plays on special teams and the botched snap.
