  1. I think it's more that 1950s sci-fi writers knew what they were writing about. Sci-fi of today is most of the time just fantasy where magic is disguised as technology.
  2. Gamers are easily soothed with hype... I think the only way to fail as a game dev studio is to be unable to generate hype. : >
  3. Starship SN15 just landed and did not explode.
  4. Well he might not have been bullying, but apparently it was still enough for him to "apologize "for all the bad blood" he caused" - to quote the article. So I guess he just wasn't very good to work with.
  5. These awards mean nothing. They are given out like candy. What I remember from the days is that half of reddit gaming subs were full with that bs.
  6. I think the reason why that scene in Spec Ops works (for most people) is that they don't think about their actions when doing it. You know how it is... you're "in the zone" and you just do stuff, because you are told to do it. Not a second spared to question the action. On a second playthrough it then falls apart, though, because you know what's going on, but the game forces you to do it anyways. Now the whole emotional impact and "wa-- woops" is gone.
  7. Well, I don't see myself on either side, and I also thought the "where are the black people in Kingdom Come?" stuff was retarded.
  8. But is that really what happened? As far as I am aware, people called out like that were, in fact, writing homo/transphobic and misogynist ****. That reminds me of this one guy who stopped playing the game and destroyed the disc after , because apparently it reminded him of and people used that as argument why the story is bad. Now this is just top level retarded. Personally I think that most of the drama wouldn't have happened if Abby would have been designed with the looks of hot and young top-model.
  9. It's pretty on point, imo. Personally there was only one scene in the whole game that really pissed me off and that's how they designed the final confrontation between Ellie and Abby. Outside of that, I hate how the game got trashed so hard for stupid stuff. It was also disgusting how they went on about the Abby character - and the real life person who was the inspiration for the look (who got harassed on Twitter & Co. with of course the usual death threats and so on). Honestly, it really made me hate gamers again. Bunch of stupid manchildren. Because of all that stupid drama,
  10. IMO Diablo 1 really didn't age very well. Played it a bit last year or so and made it till.. I think level 3 or 4 and then stopped, because it felt like I've seen it all again. : >
  11. lol, just got a mail that Netflix is increasing the prices again. From 15,99€ to 17,99€ now. Starting to wonder if it's still worth it for me.
  12. Yeh, not the same team, but it's like Blizzard looked at what made D2 successful and then came to the completely wrong conclusion about it. Unlike other people, I'm not convinced that the original team would have necessarily delivered a better game, though. Management would probably have forced them into similar money-making gameplay schemes.
  13. I'm playing Diablo 2 again recently, because of the Resurrected announcement and alpha test. It's so much better than Diablo 3. Like, Jesus, how could they f-up D3 so much, it's incredible. It's been years since I had touched D2, and I totally forgot how it felt like. Anyways. Usually the normal difficulty is reasonably easy (though D2 is still harder than D3, imo). It's picking up the pace in nightmare and hell difficulty. However, you will also get a lot better item drops to power up your character. This is pretty much where the fun-part comes in. Now that being said, I guess the r
  14. I mean, you at least want to see how the story goes, no? And if that stuff is locked behind crappy unlocking features, etc.. then that is pretty garbage. : >
  15. That doesn't sound like a good idea. : x
