Still having a blast, for some reason it reminds me quite a bit of the original game. 

Man you could not unsell the game to me any quicker than with that line.  I took a gamble with II and really liked it, as I did Black Flag as well, but that first game, there's a lot I hate about it.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Is the master really dead? It looked like she ported out right as the doctor was about to shoot. The effect of her "gun" was always to burn up the victim, but the effect on her was the blue glow she had previously when teleporting.

I also didn't understand why Clara was important in the plan and why the master needed to choose her.

Here's Moffat on it

Spoiler for Hiden:
“I always rather enjoyed how they handled this problem when the wonderful Anthony Ainley was playing the part in the 80s,” said The Moff on Doctor Who Extra.

“He would get killed, definitively, at the end of every encounter with Peter Davison and Colin Baker. And then he’d turn up at the start of the next Master story with roughly this explanation: ‘I escaped!’ Suits me, I’m fine with that!”

“Supervillains don’t die, do they?” he added. “I wouldn’t trust anything about that character’s ability to lie down and stop breathing.”

I've been watching this and at least in the first three episodes that are available the animation quality is stunning. Especially during the dance scene. I hope the series didn't blow their whole budget already.

Production has taken a small dip over the past couple of episodes.  Show is still great though, but there was no way the animation quality could hold for an entire series, it was movie quality at points.

From the IGN stream it sounds like there are a lot of options to it too.  So for instance you can set it to be in first person and have it drop to third whenever you go into cover like Rainbow Six if you want.   Also supposed to support left stick for sprint too.

He also reportedly has some kind of Halloween event item for sale if you talk to him while wearing the pumpkin on your head.

Looking closer, there are actually two new strikes being added, but one is going to be a Playstation exclusive until the year two-thousand-and-everyone-is-done-playing-this.

Isn't one of the strikes already timed on PS4 too.   Has that made it to XB1 yet? I believe it was Dust Palace (one of my favorite strikes too.)

For 20 bucks, expansion really needs to add a new location.   If not another planet, another section of Earth at least, it doesn't even need to be as big as the existing locations.

The Kotaku review, though giving it a Yes, was pretty scathing of the humor/style of the game and seems to mesh with what I've seen from the previews and people playing on Youtube.  All I can think of is

I am replaying the original in hopes of finally beating it. I always get stuck on level 5 trying to follow the path of those trapdoors that close and open in a pattern. I have no rhythm, so those type of puzzles always get me.

So far, these haven't shown up much, and where present they just present damage to the party and not having to start over.

Briana can do that, she did before all this happened. I am not sure a Twitter hashtag and some gaming forums really amounts to that much and are worth the time.

I feel like there's some misunderstanding here.  The hashtag is used by the harassers, in part as a way to organize and call out targets.

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.

The movement was never legitimate, having been started by a jilted exboyfriend.  The movement has nothing to do with ethics in journalism as it frequently goes after
targets that have little to nothing to do with it and often ignores real issues of questionable ethics (barely a peep on the Warner Brothers Youtube paid branding for Mordor for instance.)

Politics has been intertwined with games for decades, that is nothing new.

For a show that's based on a Card Battle Game, Rage of Bahamut is surprisingly awesome.  In the running for best new anime of the year I'd say.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-meX7dpotzA

High fantasy, focusing on two bounty hunters, one noble, the other a scoundrel, who get rapped up in a potentially world ending scenario unbeknownst to them.

The first episode is a must watch at the very least, it's on Funimation's site.

From VentureBeat:


Interestingly enough, the Xbox One version of Destiny supposedly sold more than the PS4 version. But then again, Microsoft was giving a free game away that month with a console purchase, and the bundled PS4 version wasn't counted.


Yeah the Destiny sales by platform is tough to know without that PS4 bundle information.  I think Sony was claiming to be the #1 platform for it though.  Basically from the released information all we know is that the amount of (existing XB1 owners who purchased Destiny XB1 + the people that purchased an XB1 with a free copy of Destiny) >  existing PS4 owners who purchased Destiny PS4.   The XB1 free game was a sales promotion and not a bundle so the free game gets counted as part of NPD, while the PS4 Destiny bundle included the game in the box, so it's not counted.  Neither counts digital sales, but I would imagine that the % of digital purchases v. retail is going to be roughly the same on both consoles.

why do we even care or need to have an relationship element at all.  Stupid.

Because we are people and people enjoy relationships with other people?   icon_wink

Honestly I think it adds tremendously to the richness of a game world when you start to actually care more about the characters you are interacting with.  And if the game relationships are well developed, the way the characters react to you should also have more depth and nuance if there is a "relationship element."  More so if the relationship was developed because of choices I made in the game as opposed to just linearly pushed forward by a fixed storyline.

If it's all done right, it can be a major game changer IMHO.  I really enjoyed Alistair in DA and I have to admit I kind of had a crush on him (as much as you can have a crush on a computer character); he's one of the few game characters from any game I actually remember fondly.  I didn't know at the time that romance options weren't possible with him, but just on the chance they were, I always steered my gameplay decisions in that direction.

Back to DA:I, I'm a little disappointed that I can't get Cullen.  That Dorian guy looks lame and that bull thing looks scary.

I agree with you a little but lets be honest it is because sex sells.  Frodo and Sam had a very deep, nuanced, relationship without sex but that don't try to emulate that in Dragon Age.  Instead you get lot of different sex scenes.  (Dragon Age: Origins - All Romances/Sex Scenes)

I don't really have a problem with it but I don't think for a minute those scenes are in there so we get a deeper story.



I don't know, Bioware has done well with the platonic relationships as well.  While Garrus was romance-able for female Shepard, as male Shepard his friendship was extremely well handled.
